SAINT F RANCIS OF AS S ISI CATHOL IC CHURC H

APRIL 14, 2013 / THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER 14 DE ABRIL 2013 / TERCER DOMINGO DE PASCUA

NAMESAKES OF CHRIST On Palm Sunday we heard in Paul’s letter to the Philippians that all things in heaven, on earth, and under the earth must bend their knee at the name of Jesus. That name comes back in today’s first reading. The Sanhedrin, whom we heard about just a few short weeks ago in the reading of the Passion, are again confronted by Jesus in his name being proclaimed by the apostles. Peter and the others refuse to bend their knee to the authority of the Sanhedrin and stop teaching in the name of Christ. In fact, they rejoice that they have been persecuted for doing so. Do we turn to those first brave followers when we are called upon to give witness to the name of Christ in our name “Christian” day by day? When we must stand against, challenge, or confront forces that counter the gospel of justice, peace, joy, and beauty, do we give witness with no less than the Holy Spirit, or do we remain silent? Do we genuinely give honor to the name of Jesus by being his namesakes in the world today?

TOCAYOS DE CRISTO El Domingo de Ramos oímos en la carta de san Pablo a los filipenses que todas las cosas en el cielo, en la tierra y en los abismos deben doblar la rodilla ante el nombre de Jesús. El nombre retorna en la primera lectura de hoy. El sanedrín, que fuera mencionado unas pocas semanas atrás en la Pasión, se enfrenta nuevamente con Jesús cuyo nombre es proclamado por los apóstoles. Pedro y los otros rehúsan doblar la rodilla ante la autoridad del sanedrín o dejar de enseñar en el nombre de Cristo. De hecho, les alegra ser perseguidos por hacerlo. ¿Nos volvemos a esos valientes primeros seguidores cuando nos toca dar testimonio de Cristo en nuestro nombre “cristiano” día a día? Cuando debemos oponernos, desafiar o enfrentar a las fuerzas que van contra el evangelio de justicia, paz, gozo y hermosura, ¿damos testimonio confiando solamente en el Espíritu Santo o permanecemos callados? ¿Genuinamente honramos el nombre de Jesús siendo portadores de su nombre en el mundo de hoy?

N ews from the Padre/ No ticias de N uestro Sacerdote It was just 5 years ago that we physically rebuilt our church building. Much like the famous line from Field of Dreams…“build it and they will come”...we certainly hoped “they” would. Well, some have come, and others still seem to be waiting...maybe they need or have to be invited. We at St. Francis had a vision; that vision has not waned. We, as a parish community, have invested time and energy as vast as our own Lake Tahoe, trying to figure out how to create a pathway leading each of us as parishioners and visitors to become true disciples of Jesus Christ. Reflecting on the great number of people who came to our Easter Mass two weeks ago, and comparing it with last week’s participation, I have concluded that I have failed to instill a strong sense of missionary vision or spirit. I would describe a missionary spirit as one in which each of us risks inviting people we personally know to reconnect or experience a deeper relationship with Christ. As I reflect on the daily scripture readings from the Book of Acts during this Easter Season, it is yet another reminder that I have been negligent in emphasizing the importance of reaching out and sharing our faith with those who have no faith or have ceased participating in our faith community. Being a true disciple of Christ means we recognize our gift of faith as exactly that: a gift. We must then take that gift and boldly and bodily proclaim the Good News, despite the possibility of being persecuted or ridiculed. The number of people who respond “none” to the question of religious affiliation has grown from 9% in 1990 to 15% in 2008. This number is projected to rise to 25% within the next twenty years. We can say “so what?” or we can, as parishioners, revive our missionary energy. I believe that a lack of strong missionary spirit is one of many reasons for an increase in the number of those questionnaires being marked “none.” Some of the other reasons for “none” include: the sexual scandal of priests, the diminishing role of religion in our secular environment, a loss of the sense of The Sacred, and the full-fledged attack of atheists. Unfortunately, Church has become relative, or worse, irrelevant. We can learn a lot from the Christians of the first century, as recorded in the Book of Acts, by how they totally trusted in Jesus and made a total commitment to spread the Good News: Christ was the center of their lives! They allowed the Holy Spirit to guide them in their quest to share the Good News of the Resurrection. They risked martyrdom to invite others to believe. I have to apologize for not stressing a theology of discipleship during my 7 years in our parish. But then again, maybe I’m wrong and you do see yourself as a disciple: Do you have a missionary spirit? Do you joyfully share your faith? Do you know how important and essential it is for you to personally share the Good News? If not, then it is to some extent, my fault. Perhaps I have not persuasively challenged you to set the flame of missionary zeal on fire in your heart. A flame...the fire...that helps you share the mercy, love and forgiveness of the Lord with others. It isn’t too late. Like the first Christians, we can recognize that we are not only called to serve, but we are also sent to share the Good News of Eternal and Resurrected Life. We can do it. We can do it together. Continued Easter Blessings...Fr. Bill Pg. 6


N ews from the Padre/ No ticias de N uestro Sacerdote Fue justo hace 5 años que físicamente hemos reconstruido nuestra iglesia. Al igual que la famosa línea de campo de los Sueños… "construye y ellos vendrán"... sin duda esperaban "ellos" sería. Así, algunos han llegado, y hay otros que todavía parecen esperar... quizás necesiten ser invitados. Estamos como San Francisco que tuvo una visión; la visión no ha disminuido. Nosotros, como una comunidad parroquial, hemos invertido tiempo y energía tan vasto como nuestro propio Lago de Tahoe, tratando de averiguar como crear una vía que lleve a cada uno de nosotros como los feligreses y visitantes a ser verdaderos discípulos de Jesucristo. Al reflexionar sobre el gran número de gente que vino a nuestra misa de Pascua hace dos semanas, y la comparación con la semana pasada la participación, me ha llevado a la conclusión de que no he podido infundir un fuerte sentido de visión misionera. Quisiera describir un espíritu misionero en cada uno de ustedes y correr el riesgo de invitarlos a conocer personalmente y volver a conectarse a la experiencia de tener una relación más profunda con Cristo. Al reflexionar sobre el diario de las lecturas bíblicas del Libro de los hechos durante este tiempo de Pascua, que es otro recordatorio de que he sido negligente en subrayar la importancia de alcanzar y compartir nuestra fe con los que no tienen fe, o que han dejado de participar en nuestra comunidad de fe. Al ser un verdadero discípulo de Jesús significa que reconocemos nuestro don de la fe como simplemente eso: un regalo. Luego, se debe tomar el don y compartirlo con audacia y proclamar la Buena Nueva, a pesar de la posibilidad de ser perseguido y ridiculizado. El número de personas que responde "no" a la pregunta de afiliación religiosa ha aumentado de 9% en 1990 al 15% en 2008. Este número se prevé un aumento de 25% en los próximos veinte años. Podemos decir " ¿Y qué?" o podemos, como los feligreses, reavivar nuestra energía misionera. Creo que la falta de un fuerte espíritu misionero es una de las muchas razones para un aumento en el número de los cuestionarios que se marcó "ninguno." Algunos de los otros motivos para "ninguno" se incluyen: el escándalo sexual de los sacerdotes, la disminución del papel de la religión en nuestro ambiente secular, una pérdida del sentido de lo sagrado, y el pleno sentido de ataque de los ateos. Lamentablemente, la Iglesia se ha relativizado, o peor, se esta haciendo irrelevante. Podemos aprender mucho de los cristianos del primer siglo, tal como se registra en el Libro de los hechos, por la manera en que confían totalmente en Jesús y realizan un total compromiso de difundir la Buena Noticia: Cristo fue el centro de sus vidas! Que permitió que el Espíritu Santo, las guíe en su búsqueda para compartir la Buena Noticia de la Resurrección. Corrían el riesgo de que fueran al martirio por invitar a otros a creer. Tengo que pedir disculpas por no insistir en una teología del discipulado durante mis 7 años en nuestra parroquia. Pero, una vez más, tal vez estoy equivocado te imaginas como un discípulo: ¿tiene el espíritu misionero? ¿Con alegría compartes tu fe? ¿Sabes lo importante y fundamental que es para ti personalmente compartir la Buena Noticia? Si no es así, entonces en cierta medida, es mi culpa. Tal vez no he cuestionado o persuadiendo a establecer la llama del celo misionero el fuego en tu corazón. Una llama... Un fuego... que te ayuda a compartir la misericordia, del amor y el perdón del Señor con los demás. No es demasiado tarde. Al igual que los primeros cristianos, podemos reconocer que no estamos llamados a servir solos, sino que también somos enviados a compartir las buenas noticias de la vida eterna y del resucitado. Podemos hacerlo. Podemos hacerlo juntos. Continúan mis bendiciones de Pascua...Padre Bill Pg. 7


St ewardship &Com munity/ Admi nistración y Co munidad SMALL CHURCH COMMUNITY UPDATE: Many Catholics have never openly

shared their faith with anyone, or have little or no practice of speaking about their faith in personal terms. One of the fruits of being part of a Small Church Community group is that we are better enabled to share our faith with others, something we are clearly called to do. You are invited to come to our Small Church Community gathering on Wednesday, April 17th, from 7-8:45 p.m. at Sharon and Bruce's home. We reflect on the Sunday Scriptures, faith-share on what the passage says to us personally, take time to pray for one another and other intentions, then enjoy fellowship with coffee and cookies. All are welcome! For more info please call Sharon Hatch at 775-832-2616.

Your friends and neighbors are welcome to join us in this inspirational study of God’s love, sacrifice and hope! The accompanying study guide will be available for $15. No registration required.

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 Bishop of Reno Pg. 9

Issues of Peace and Justice

From the Life, Peace and Justice Commission What if we were ordered, as were the apostles, to stop speaking and teaching in the name of Jesus? Perhaps what comes to mind are some romantic notions of underground liturgy and covert catechesis under the regime of an oppressive leader, as certain countries have experienced; or perhaps we envision the early martyrs of the church who received death because they would not renounce their faith. Perhaps we do not think this passage pertains to us in modern-day America. We are still called to speak and act in the name of the Lord. We are called to live our Faith. “To the people of our time...the Church...offers her social doctrine. In fact, when the Church ‘fulfils her mission of proclaiming the Gospel, she bears witness to [mankind], in the name of Christ, to his dignity and his vocation to the communion of persons. She teaches [mankind] the demands of justice and peace in conformity with divine wisdom.’ This doctrine has its own profound unity which flows from Faith in a whole and complete salvation, from Hope in a fullness of justice, and from Love, which makes all mankind truly brothers and sisters in Christ: it is the expression of God’s love for the world, which he so loved ‘that he gave his only Son.’ The new law of love embraces the entire human family and knows no limits, since the proclamation of the salvation wrought by Christ extends ‘to the ends of the earth’” (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, #3).

La Paz y Justicia Lo que si se nos dijo, como fueron los apóstoles, que dejen de hablar y enseñar en el nombre de Jesús? Tal vez lo que viene a la mente son algunas nociones románticas de metro liturgia y la catequesis encubierta bajo el régimen de una opresiva líder, dado que algunos países han experimentado; o tal vez nos imaginamos los primeros mártires de la iglesia que recibieron la muerte porque no renunciaban a su fe. Tal vez no creo que este pasaje se refiere a nosotros hoy en día en América. Todavía estamos llamados a hablar y actuar en nombre del Señor. Estamos llamados a vivir nuestra fe. "A los hombres de nuestro tiempo... la Iglesia... ofrece su doctrina social. De hecho, cuando la Iglesia cumple su misión de anunciar el Evangelio, da testimonio de [la humanidad], en el nombre de Cristo, de su dignidad y su vocación a la comunión de las personas. Ella enseña [la humanidad] las exigencias de la justicia y la paz en conformidad con la sabiduría divina." Esta doctrina tiene su propia unidad profunda que fluye de la fe en su conjunto de salvación completa, de la esperanza en la plenitud de la justicia y de amor, que hace que toda la humanidad verdaderamente seamos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo: es la expresión del amor de Dios para el mundo, al que tanto amó "que le dio a su Hijo unigénito." La nueva ley de amor abarca toda la familia humana, no conoce límites, a partir de la proclamación de la salvación realizada por Cristo se extiende hasta los últimos confines de la tierra " (Compendio de la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia por el Pontificio Consejo Justicia y Paz, # 3).
