TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION Most Christians today receive a bunch of palm fronds, olive branches, pussy willow, or forsythia (a relative of the olive) to carry in procession and to bear home in blessing. Some even offer sprigs of palm or other branches as a gesture of peace to those they have offended. The desire is to make a clean sweep of your spiritual house before the Easter feast. Accepting the branch is a token of the bearer’s willingness to journey with the Church through a grateful remembrance of Jesus Christ’s passion, death, and life-giving resurrection. Traditionally, the plants associated with today’s feast are planted in cemeteries as a sign of Christ’s victory over death and the promise of new life. The joy of this day’s opening procession soon gives way to a solemn reading of the Passion, this year according to Matthew. The ritual is meant not only to strengthen us to hear this account, but to stir us up to accompany the Church on this journey through Holy Week. It also prepares us for next Sunday’s joyful renewal of our baptismal vows. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

Losing a child to abortion isn’t easy... But if given the broken pieces, God can make all things new. H.E.A.R.T. provides a confidential, caring group to journey with you to bring hope and healing due to an abortion. In this non-judgmental setting we look to God and trust in his mercy to restore us to wholeness. In this group process we look at: realizing we need healing, acknowledging the abortion - breaking the shame, forgiveness, accepting God's grace, allowing yourself to grieve, self-reconciliation, relationships and ongoing healing. We are looking to start a morning H.E.A.R.T. group in the Lutz / North Tampa area very soon. Anyone affected by an abortion may attend. For more information and to register please call or text Julie at (813) 528-1717 or email: HEART@LifeChoicesWC.org

Domingo de Ramos “De la Pasión del Señor” 13 de abril de 2014 Dios lo exaltó [a Cristo] sobre todas las cosas y le otorgó el nombre que está sobre todo nombre. — Filipenses 2:9

Domingo 13 de Abril de 2014. Domingo de Ramos Reflexionando la Palabra de Dios Con la celebración del Domingo de Ramos abrimos el pórtico de la Semana Santa. Desde el día de hoy hasta la noche pascual contemplaremos el misterio doloroso de Jesús, y este ejercicio despertará en nosotros unos muy sinceros afectos de admiración, de gratitud y de adhesión incondicional a quién da la mayor prueba de amor. Le seguiremos con sumo interés y asombro desde su entrega al maltrato y al dolor del poder de las tinieblas, hasta su triunfante glorificación. Admiraremos su valor y valentía, haciendo realidad las palabras de Isaías: Y yo no resistí ni me eché atrás: ofrecí la espalda a los

que me apaleaban, las mejillas a los que mesaban mi barba; no me tapé el rostro ante ultrajes ni salivazos. Y las palabras de san Pablo a los filipenses: Se rebajó hasta someterse incluso a la muerte, y una muerte de cruz. Sabemos que estos hechos conforman la escena final de una vida dedicada a sostener a los cansados. Recordaremos que Jesús, mientras vivía entregado al amor del Padre y a la salvación de los hombres, se mantuvo firme sabiendo que no quedaría defraudado, que su generosidad daría fruto abundante: tanta generosidad concluirá en la glorificación de Dios, la exaltación de Jesús mismo, y la salvación del mundo:

Por eso Dios lo levantó sobre todo y le concedió el nombre sobre-todo-nombre, de modo que al nombre de Jesús toda rodilla se doble en el cielo, en la tierra y en el abismo, y toda lengua proclame: Jesucristo es Señor, para gloria de Dios Padre. Instruidos por esta doctrina, pondremos nuestra confianza total en Dios y en su enviado, Jesús, y agradeceremos la salvación que nos ha sido merecida y compartida personalmente por Él. Participaremos de corazón y activamente en las celebraciones de esta semana y nos esforzaremos por hacer nuestro vitalmente todo lo que celebramos, negándonos a toda curiosidad o pasividad ante los hechos que conmemoramos y apartando de nosotros toda angustia sentimental. Desde el reconocimiento humilde de nuestro pecado, esperaremos con entereza la salvación que se nos ofrece como un don gratuito Que estas disposiciones nos ayuden igualmente a asumir con firmeza y confianza nuestra porción de dolor en la historia de la humanidad y a conformar nuestra vida y nuestras obras, a la vida y las obras de Jesús. Bien podemos iniciar un cambio positivo con motivo de esta Semana Santa. El Señor lo espera y nosotros tenemos necesidad de ello. P. Jairo

Para pensarlo Decálogo para una Buena Semana Santa Ponte en paz con Dios y con los hermanos. Busca espacios y tiempo para la oración. Jesús. Escucha, medita y lee con interés la Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección de Cristo. 4. Ejerce la generosidad y sin mirar a quién ni el cuánto. 5. Participa activamente en las celebraciones eucarísticas o litúrgicas. 6. Guarda silencio en estos días. Que la Televisión no sea la protagonista en tu casa. 7. No olvides el ayuno y la abstinencia. Quien mucho hizo por el hombre, Jesús, ¿no va a ser correspondido, recordado y querido con nuestra solidaridad en estos gestos que hablan de nuestra sobriedad o austeridad? 8. Ora ante la cruz. Ponte en camino hacia una iglesia. 9. Anima a tus familiares a vivir la Semana Santa. 10. Prepárate durante toda la Semana Santa al gran acontecimiento de la Pascua: la Resurrección de Cristo. No te quedes agarrado para siempre a la cruz; no te conformes con ser espectador de una procesión de Viernes Santo. Recuerda que, un cristiano, es hijo de la Pascua resucitada. Nuestra fe es de vida, no de muerte. 1. 2. 3.

GRUPO DE PAREJAS MDS Invitamos a todas las parejas casadas o no casadas para que participen de nuestro grupo para su crecimiento. Tenemos charlas todos los viernes en el salón St. Francis a las 7:30 pm. Sin costo alguno. Ofrecemos cuidado de los niños. El próximo retiro inolvidable de parejas será el fin de semana Mayo 23, 24 y 25. Con Jesús todo es posible y no es necesario cambiar de pareja, solo necesitas cambiar de actitud. Para mayor información comunicarse con Lecy o Dante al (813) 850-4526.

El martes, 15 de abril, 2014 a las 11:30am, el Obispo Robert Lynch presidirá la MISA CRISMAL en la Catedral de St. Judas Apóstol. 5815 Fifth Avenue North, St. Petersburg.

Los fieles están invitados a participar en esta celebración diocesana tan significativa.


13 de abril, 2014

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE El Viernes Santo es el día más impresionante que se conmemora en el calendario cristiano. Es el día en que Jesús, muriendo en la cruz, se revela al mismo tiempo como Hijo del Hombre e Hijo de Dios. Los hispanos conmemoramos este día no sólo con la liturgia oficial de la Iglesia, sino también con nuestras devociones populares como el Vía crucis en vivo, el Pésame a la Virgen y el sermón de las Siete Palabras. Esta última devoción es también conocida como el Sermón de tres horas y es mayormente usada por las Iglesias protestantes, sin embargo, tiene su origen gracias al sacerdote Jesuita Francisco del Castillo, en Perú. Como Jesús, este santo varón dedicó toda su vida a los pobres y marginados. El Viernes Santo de 1660, mientras predicaba en la iglesia de Nuestra de Señora de los Desamparados, ante la efigie del Señor en agonía, decidió hacer una comparación del sufrimiento de Cristo al sufrimiento de los desamparados, llamando a los cristianos al apostolado de caridad y justicia. Las siete últimas palabras de Jesucristo deben movernos al servicio de los desamparados. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

LA CRUZ Nosotros hemos de gloriarnos en la cruz de nuestro Señor Jesucristo: en él está nuestra salvación, vida y resurrección; él nos ha salvado y liberado. —Antífona de entrada, Misa vespertina de la Cena del Señor, Misal Romano
