The Lord is Risen Indeed! Alleluia! Alleluia!

God has arranged that His resurrection from the dead will clearly show us a simple but powerful message: that He has His own way of dealing with death as well as with life. While people may be led to think that life ends in death, His death on the cross on Good Friday and rising to new life on Easter Sunday demonstrates that life is only changed but not ended. Christ rose from the dead to confirm that there is another way. What can bring true victory is neither the way of hatred and violence, nor sin and death. For Him, the path to abundant life is selflessness, peace, forgiveness, and love. By showing us another way, he showed us the true and best way to lead a fuller life.

As we renew our baptismal promises this Easter, we fervently pray for the grace to fully pin our hope in Him, closely follow His ways, and to be always confident in His promise of eternal life.

Blessed Easter to you and your family!

¡El Señor ha resucitado en verdad! ¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya!

La resurrección de Dios de entre los muertos nos muestra un mensaje simple pero poderoso: que Él tiene Su propia forma de tratar con la muerte y con la vida. Si bien las personas pueden pensar que la vida termina con la muerte, Su muerte en la cruz el Viernes Santo y su resurrección a una nueva vida el Domingo de Pascua nos muestran que la vida cambió pero no terminó. Cristo resucitó de entre los muertos para darnos otro camino. Lo que puede traer la verdadera victoria no es el odio y la violencia, ni el pecado y la muerte. Para Él, el camino a la vida abundante es el desinterés, la paz, el perdón y el amor. Al mostrarnos otro camino, nos mostró la verdadera y mejor manera de llevar una vida más plena.

Mientras renovamos nuestras promesas bautismales esta Pascua, oramos por la gracia de poner nuestra esperanza en Él, seguir Sus caminos y tener confianza en Su promesa de vida eterna.

¡Bendita Pascua para ti y tu familia!

Pope Francis’ call to be a listening church (Synod)

In his opening address he called us as church to engage this synod as an opportunity “to become a listening church, to break out of our routine and pause from our pastoral concerns in order to stop and listen.”

This synodal process invites all the faithful and, in particular, our leaders within parishes, dioceses, hospitals, schools, universities and other church-related ministries to do some soul-searching. We must seize this moment to listen intently, especially to those who have been marginalized. We must listen to those among us who experience rejection, exclusion and unwelcome in their families, parishes and other Catholic spaces and contexts.
