CALLED TO BE WITNESSES

LAMADOS A SER TESTIGOS

Thomas probably would be a good man to have in your corner in a modern-day courtroom. Even though he was willing to follow Jesus to death (John 11:16), he’s not going to go out into the world now and attempt to give witness to the risen Christ when all he has at his disposal is hearsay evidence from the other apostles. No, he wants immediate evidence, a hands-on experience of Christ risen and present. The risen Christ ultimately provides Thomas with the experience and evidence he needs.

Tomás probablemente sería el tipo de hombre que uno quisiera tener de su lado en un tribunal de justicia real. Aunque estuvo dispuesto a seguir a Jesús hasta la muerte (Juan 11:16), no se lanzaría a ir al mundo ahora e intentar dar testimonio de Cristo resucitado cuando sólo cuenta con “relatos de tercera mano” de otros apóstoles. No, él quiere evidencia inmediata, experiencia directa de Cristo resucitado y presente. Al final, Cristo resucitado le provee a Tomás la experiencia y la prueba que él necesita.

Many of us, when we struggle with our faith or our belief, can identify with Thomas. But even when our faith is in relatively solid shape, we encounter people who are a bit like Thomas, who won’t believe unless they are given credible experience of the risen Christ. We, then, are called to be witnesses. Like Christ, we cannot be ashamed to show the woundedness of the Body of Christ, the Church. We must even allow others to probe and examine the wounds. But we must also greet them with “Peace” and know that, in the glorious everlasting life of Christ risen from the dead, our wounds are not our final destiny. Our final joy is life transformed for eternity.

Muchos, cuando luchamos con nuestra fe y o con lo que creemos, nos podemos identificar con Tomás. Pero aunque nuestra fe fuera bastante sólida, encontramos a personas que son un poco como Tomás, que no creerán si no pasan por una experiencia creíble de Cristo resucitado. Entonces, somos llamados a dar testimonio. Como Cristo, no podemos avergonzarnos de mostrar las heridas del Cuerpo de Cristo, la Iglesia. Hasta tenemos que permitir a otros que toquen y examinen las heridas. Pero también debemos saludarlas con la “paz” y saber que, en la gloriosa vida eterna de Cristo resucitado de entre los muertos, nuestras heridas no serán nuestro destino final. Nuestra alegría final es una vida transformada por toda la eternidad.

N ews from the Padre/ No ticias de N uestro Sacerdote Attending Mass on Easter Sunday is certainly a different experience than participating in an ordinary Sunday liturgy. For those who are in the pews every Sunday, the question that pops into our mind is, “Where did all of these people come from?” As a pastor, I am also forced to ask myself the most basic question of all, “What can our parish community do to encourage these inactive, fallen-away, former or ex-Catholics who have drifted away for some reason, to get them re-involved in our parish activities before next Christmas –before they fall permanently into the category coined as “CEO” Catholics or Christmas and Easter Only Catholics. However we choose to label them, there are millions of Catholics who don’t attend Mass on a regular basis. The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA), located at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., offers the widest and best sample of Catholic Mass attendance. Twenty-three percent of all Catholics claim to attend Mass weekly; another 21% claim to attend at least monthly. This means that 56% of Catholics do not attend Mass with any regularity. Molly Worthen, a religious historian, notes that the United States has seen many ebbs and flows in religious participation; the current rates are similar to the time prior to the Civil War. Worthen writes in the New York Times, “77% still identify as Christians and 69% say they are ‘very’ or ‘moderately’ religious.” If this is true, we’ve still got something to work with. With the gift of faith, the church’s diminishment can be viewed as an incredible and golden opportunity to ask yet another serious question. Simply put: “What is the Church for?” Historically, we would have answered that question in various ways: for decades in this country, the church’s purpose was to feed, teach and nurse, leave a legacy of churches, schools and hospitals built to nurture, educate and heal generations of poor immigrants. Bishop John Buckley of Ireland, while probably not in agreement with all, states: “...the central tenets of Catholicism were not established as rules of membership. These are all ideals that we must try to live up to. If you do not meet all these ideals, it does not mean that you cannot take your place at the table the Lord has prepared for you. The church is a refuge for the weak, not a home for the perfect,” a loving home meant to be filled and overflowing with the imperfections that each of us brings to that same table. A home for all, on Easter and every day. I loved that our Church overflowed into the gathering area on Easter weekend. What a witness to the truth that the Easter Story has real meaning and continues to capture people’s imagination. If we can figure out what the pull was to get people to come to church this past week, then we can use that as a starting point for helping them look more deeply at their own experience. We can be much better in teaching, converting, and inviting others to an active and engaged participation in the life of the Church, involvement that can help make a real difference in a person’s daily life. The account of the Resurrection does not just have meaning for a single moment, but rather calls for a commitment. Each of us can see ourselves making a commitment to be a disciple—one who “goes out into the world,” as Pope Francis stated in his Easter homily. We could, of course, just hunker down and lament the loss of faith within our community—hiding out in the proverbial Upper Room. That is, after all, what some of Jesus’ disciples did. But, it is not our charism to hide. Our charism is to welcome. Hospitality—that sense of genuine and loving welcoming—must continue to be a major touch point in the Stewardship of our Church today. These practices cannot become just another catch phrase. They must be the way we live our Catholic Christianity. Times have changed, and for better or worse, other institutions have taken on the tasks of education and health care. I believe that American Catholics face far less discrimination than our grandparents did, and have ultimately become more inclusive and welcoming. Those same changing times have also shown that this weekend’s liturgies won’t likely be witness to another “standing room only” weekend. We need to understand that as Catholics, we are called to be committed disciples. Disciples who don’t hide, but rather, “go out into the world to preach the Good News.” Easter Blessings...Alleluia! Alleluia! Pg. 6


N ews from the Padre/ No ticias de N uestro Sacerdote

En la misa del domingo de Pascua es sin duda una experiencia diferente de participar en una liturgia dominical. Para aquellos que están en los bancos cada domingo, la cuestión que aparece en nuestra mente es, " ¿De donde viene todas estas personas?" Como pastor, yo también estoy obligado a preguntarme la pregunta más básica de todas: " ¿Qué puede hacer nuestra comunidad para alentar a estas personas que no son activas en nuestra parroquia que motivación les podemos dar para que regresen y participen en nuestra iglesia frecuentemente? Este tipo de católicos de llaman Católicos de Navidad y Pascua, los que nada mas viene en los días festivos de la Iglesia. Toda broma y etiquetas aparte, hay millones de católicos que no asisten a misa en una base regular. El Centro de Investigación Aplicada en el apostolado (CARA), ubicado en la Universidad de Georgetown en Washington, D. C. , ofrece la mejor y más amplia muestra de participación en la Misa Católica. Veinte y tres por ciento de todos los católicos demanda para asistir a la Misa semanal; otro 21% demanda a asistir a por lo menos una vez al mes. Esto significa que el 56% de los católicos no asistir a misa con regularidad. Molly Worthen, un historiador religioso, observa que en Estados Unidos se ha visto muchos flujos y reflujos de participación religiosa; los índices actuales no son similares a la vez antes de la Guerra Civil. Worthen escribe en el New York Times, "77% aún identificar como cristianos y el 69% dicen que están "muy" o "moderadamente" religiosa. Si esto es cierto, aún tenemos algo con que trabajar. Con el don de la fe, la iglesia tiene la disminución se puede ver como una increíble oportunidad de oro para pedir otra grave cuestión. En resumen: " ¿Cuál es la Iglesia de?" históricamente, habríamos contestado la pregunta de varias formas: desde hace décadas en este país, la misión de la iglesia es el de alimentar, educar y una enfermera, dejar un legado de iglesias, escuelas y hospitales construidos para alimentar, educar y sanar las generaciones de inmigrantes pobres. El Obispo John Buckley de Irlanda, mientras que probablemente no estén de acuerdo con todos, dice:"... los principios centrales del catolicismo no se establecieron como normas de composición. Todos estos son ideales que debemos tratar de estar a la altura. Si usted no cumple con todos estos ideales, no significa que usted no puede tomar su lugar en la mesa del Señor ha preparado para usted. La iglesia es un refugio para los débiles, no una casa para el perfecto." Un hogar cariñoso para ser llenados y rebosante de las imperfecciones que cada uno de nosotros aporta a la misma tabla. Una casa para todos, en la Semana Santa y todos los días. Me encantó el hecho de que nuestra Iglesia ha desbordado en la zona de acumulación en semana santa. Lo que un testimonio de la verdad de que la Pascua historia ha significado real y continúa para capturar la imaginación de la gente. Si podemos averiguar en qué consiste la tire era para que la gente acceda a venir a la iglesia la semana pasada, entonces podemos usar como punto de partida para ayudarles a encontrar más profundamente en su propia experiencia. Podemos ser mucho mejor para la enseñanza, la conversión, invitando a otros a hacer un argumento más convincente para la participación activa y comprometida en la vida de la Iglesia hará una verdadera diferencia en la vida cotidiana de las personas. La cuenta de la resurrección no sólo tiene sentido en un solo momento, sino que pide un compromiso. Cada uno de nosotros podemos ver el compromiso de ser un discípulo de quien "sale al mundo", como el Papa Francisco declaró en su homilía Pascual. Podríamos, por supuesto, sólo agacharse y lamentamos la pérdida de la fe dentro de nuestra comunidad a esconderse en el proverbial cenáculo. Es decir, después de todo, lo que algunos de los discípulos de Jesús lo hizo. Pero, que no es nuestro carisma de hid. Nuestro carisma es bienvenida. Hospitalidad de ese sentido de la verdadera bienvenida y amorosa de debe seguir siendo un importante punto de contacto en la dirección de nuestra Iglesia de hoy. Estas prácticas no puede ser sólo otra frase gancho. Deben ser la manera en la que vivimos nuestro Cristianismo Católico. Han cambiado los tiempos, y para mejor o para peor, otras instituciones han adoptado en las tareas de la educación y la atención de la salud. Creo que los católicos americanos cara mucho menos discriminación que hicieron nuestros abuelos, y, al final, se han convertido en más inclusiva y acogedor. Tenemos que comprender que los católicos, estamos llamados a ser discípulos comprometidos. Discípulos que no esconden, sino "ir al mundo a predicar la Buena Nueva." Feliz Pascua... ¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya!

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, The Catholic Home Missions Appeals help support basic pastoral and formation programs for four out of every ten dioceses in the United States. The Diocese of Reno is one of the dioceses that has received grants from this fund. With Home Missions grants, we can continue supplying the help needed. The Home Missions Appeal helps ease struggles through grants to people in the Mission Dioceses who would not be able to afford services such as adult faith formation and education for leaders to attend to the unique needs of their faith communities. Please be generous to this year’s Appeal and help strengthen not only the Church at home, but throughout the country. You support truly makes a difference. Thank you! Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Reverend Randolph R. Calvo

Issues of Peace and Justice

From the Life, Peace and Justice Commission (April 7 bulletin) “Peace be with you.” Three times Jesus repeats this in today’s gospel. This salutation seems to be more than just a friendly greeting of the Lord, as is indicated by this fuller statement, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” The Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church states: “Peace is a value and a universal duty.” “Peace is the fruit of justice.” “Peace is also the fruit of love.” “Peace is built up day after day in the pursuit of an order willed by God and can flourish only when all recognize that everyone is responsible for promoting it. To prevent conflicts and violence, it is absolutely necessary that peace begin to take root as a value rooted deep within the heart of every person. In this way it can spread to families and to the different associations within society until the whole of the political community is involved. In a climate permeated with harmony and respect for justice, an authentic culture of peace can grow and can even pervade the entire international community. Peace is, consequently, the fruit of ‘that harmony structured into human society by its Divine Founder and which must be actualized by people as they aspire for ever greater justice.’ Such an ideal of peace ‘cannot be obtained on earth unless the welfare of man is safeguarded and people freely and trustingly share with one another the riches of their minds and their talents.’” (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, #494 & #495.)

La Paz y Justicia "La paz sea con vosotros." Tres veces Jesús repite esta frase en el evangelio de hoy. Este saludo parece ser más que un amable saludo del Señor, como se indica en la presente declaración más completa, "La paz sea con vosotros. Como el Padre me envió, también yo os envío a vosotros." El Compendio de la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia afirma: "La paz es un valor y un deber universal." "La paz es fruto de la justicia." "La paz es también fruto del amor." "La paz se construye día a día en la búsqueda de un orden querido por Dios, y sólo puede florecer cuando todos reconocemos que cada uno es responsable de defender la paz. Para evitar los conflictos y la violencia, es absolutamente necesario que la paz comience a tener raíces como un valor arraigado profundamente en el corazón de cada persona. De esta manera se puede extender a las familias y a las diferentes asociaciones dentro de la sociedad hasta que el conjunto de la comunidad se involucre políticamente. En un clima impregnado con la armonía y el respeto de la justicia, una auténtica cultura de la paz puede crecer y puede incluso dominar el conjunto de la comunidad internacional. Paz es, por lo tanto, el fruto de la "armonía que estructurada en la sociedad humana por su divino Fundador y que debe ser actualizada por las personas que aspiran cada vez más justas." Ese ideal de paz "no se puede obtener en la tierra a menos que el bienestar del hombre este protegido y las personas libremente compartan su confianza con los de mas y las riquezas de sus mentes y sus talentos. '" (Compendio de la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia por el Consejo Pontificio para la justicia y la paz, #494 y #495.)
