COME, LORD JESUS

VEN, SEÑOR JESÚS

The first reading today may seem somewhat out of place. Doesn’t the “feast of Stephen” evoke memories of the Christmas season, rather than Easter? But it is most relevant for the days after the Ascension. Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, stands at his Father’s right hand to welcome Stephen into heaven. Indeed, that is why Jesus has gone before us—to welcome us into God’s house.

La primera lectura de hoy puede parecer fuera de lugar. La “fiesta de Esteban” ¿no evoca recuerdos de Navidad más que de Pascua? Pero tiene más sentido después de la Ascensión. Jesucristo, el Hijo del Hombre, de pie a la derecha del Padre, da la bienvenida a Esteban en el cielo. Sin duda por eso Jesús nos precede –para darnos la bienvenida a la casa del Padre.

In the second reading the focus on heavenly reward continues: the new day coming with its hope and expectation. There is also an echo here of Advent, but it is now the fulfillment of those hopes, the resolution of all questions and difficulties.

La segunda lectura continúa refiriéndose a premios celestiales: el nuevo día llega con sus esperanzas y sus expectativas. Resuena un eco aquí también, del Adviento, pero ahora sobre el cumplimiento de esas esperanzas, las respuestas a todas las interrogantes y las soluciones a todas las dificultades. El Adviento es sobre la “venida”.

John’s Gospel today is part of the section known as the “high priestly prayer” of Jesus. It was his prayer at the Last Supper as he prepared for his roles as priest and victim. But it is also his prayer as the glorified and ascended high priest, the giver of glory, the center of faith, and the master of his destiny and ours.

La Iglesia ahora reza: “Ven, Señor Jesús”. El Evangelio de Juan hoy es parte de la sección conocida como la “oración sacerdotal” de Jesús. Fue su oración en la Última Cena cuando se preparaba para su ministerio de sacerdote y de víctima. Pero es también su oración como sumo sacerdote glorificado y ascendido, dador de gloria, centro de la fe y maestro de su destino y del nuestro.

SMALL CHURCH COMMUNITY

PROJECT DRESSER UPDATE

Has God been working in a special way in your life lately? Come hear the good news proclaimed with other Catholic Christians in our parish! Our Small Church Community (SCC) will gather on Wednesday evening, May 15th from 7 to 8:45 pm at Sharon and Bruce Hatch’s home. We will meet for prayer, scripture readings, faith sharing and fellowship. Whether you have been to one of our SCCs or not, please feel welcome to join us and bring along a friend if you like! All are invited. For more information or to RSVP, call Sharon Hatch at (775) 832-2616.

Thanks to the generosity of St. Francis parishioners, we were able to complete an emergency dresser for a mother after receiving a last-minute call from Casa de Vida. This was very appropriate, especially during the month of May which is dedicated to our Blessed Mother who also chose life for her Divine Son.

Testimony for SCC: “Through our reflections and sharing on the Sunday scriptures along with the focus questions, I feel excitement, hope and confidence in my faith. I gain spiritual strength in knowing other parishioners who are growing in an alive-relationship with our God, believing in and cooperating with Him in their challenging lives.” (S. Hatch)

Your continued support of Project Dresser allows us to help these young pregnant girls, giving them encouragement and hope. God bless you!

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote This weekend, millions of Americans will go to a card shop, or create a personal Mother’s Day card, order flowers or buy a present for their mom. As you wish your Mother a “Happy Mother’s Day” or remember her in prayer if she is deceased, it may also be a good time to remember those mothers throughout the world who face enormous challenges every day. Let us remember the millions of mothers who live on less than a dollar a day, the mothers who have no health care for themselves or their children; the mothers wondering how they are going to feed or diaper their children and the mothers who have no means to get proper immunizations, antibiotics or effective treatments for communicable diseases. This list of challenged and needy mothers could go on and on… Anyone who has ever had to worry about such things can deeply sympathize. For those of us who have escaped such worries, we can only imagine the level of instinctive stress that this type of uncertainty can provoke. Mother’s Day originally began as a call to unite women around the world to address these tough challenges faced by mothers. In 1870, Julia Ward Howe issued the “Mother’s Day Proclamation.” After witnessing the atrocities of war and the ensuing hardships of tens of thousands of widows and orphans, she issued a rallying cry for women to use their power and humanity to promote the “alliance of the different nationalities” and the “amicable settlement of international questions.” Challenges today are strikingly similar and Howe’s words are still timely. Wars rage on. Food prices are skyrocketing. Poverty prevents people from obtaining clean water and nutritional food, or gaining access to healthcare and basic education. Americans alone are expected to spend over $16 billion on Mother’s Day, with nearly $675 million to be spent on Mother’s Day cards alone. On this holiday, in the spirit of Mother’s Day, we might consider spending some of that money to ease the burdens of some of our local mothers. Perhaps you could consider dropping off a box of diapers for our ongoing “Project Dresser” or purchasing some yarn for our “Blanket Ministry,” a group who distributes special crocheted and knitted blankets to the terminally ill or infirmed. Maybe you have a little extra time to quilt a baby blanket for a newborn baptized here at St. Francis, or shop for extra food items to share with our “Food for the Hungry” ministry. If you have some baby furniture or clothing that your children have outgrown, please donate it to any of our local thrift stores. There are countless ways to help both locally and globally. Make sure to let your mother know you were thinking about her and all of the many things she provided for you along the way…and that you did a good deed in honor of her. It will make her very proud. Blessed Mother’s Day from the St. Francis staff….

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote Este fin de semana, millones de estadounidenses se van a una tienda de tarjetas, a comprara una tarjeta para el Día de la madre, o flores o un regalo para su madre. Para desearle a su madre "un Feliz Día de la Madre" o recordarla en la oración si ella ha fallecido, también puede ser un buen momento para recordar a las madres de todo el mundo que se enfrentan a enormes retos cada día. Hay que recordar los millones de madres que viven con menos de un dólar al día, las madres que no tienen atención de salud para sí mismos o sus hijos; las madres se preguntan cómo se van a alimentar o comprar pañales para los niños y las madres que no tienen los medios para obtener una correcta vacunación, o los antibióticos o tratamientos eficaces para las enfermedades transmisibles. Esta lista de las impugnaciones que las madres necesitan podría seguir y seguir… Cualquiera que haya pasado alguna vez a preocuparse por este tipo de cosas pueden solidarizarse profundamente. Para aquellos de nosotros que se han escapado de este tipo de preocupaciones, sólo podemos imaginarnos el nivel de tensión instintiva que este tipo de incertidumbre puede provocar. El día de la madre se inició como una llamada a unir a las mujeres en todo el mundo para hacer frente a estos retos que enfrentan las madres. En 1870, Julia Ward Howe emitió el "Anuncio del Día de la Madre." Después de presenciar las atrocidades de la guerra, y las siguientes penalidades de decenas de miles de viudas y huérfanos, y emitió un grito de guerra para que las mujeres usaran su poder y la humanidad para promover la "alianza de las diferentes nacionalidades" y la "solución amistosa de los asuntos internacionales." Los desafíos de hoy son sorprendentemente y similares a los de Howe y las palabras siguen siendo oportunas. Furia en las guerras. Los precios de los alimentos están subiendo como la espuma. La pobreza impide a las personas de acceder a agua potable, atención sanitaria y la educación básica. Los Estadounidenses solo esperan gastar más de $16 mil millones de dólares por el día de la madre, con casi 675 millones de dólares que se gastaran en tarjetas solamente. En este día de fiesta, con el espíritu del Día de la Madre, podríamos considerar gastar una parte de ese dinero para aliviar los problemas de algunas de nuestras madres locales. Tal vez si podríamos tener la posibilidad de donar una caja de pañales para nuestro "Proyecto Actual de Vestir" o adquirir hilo para nuestro "Ministerio de Manta", un grupo especial que distribuye mantas de ganchillo y punto a los enfermos terminales. Tal vez tenga un poco de tiempo extra para hacer una manta para un bebé recién nacido y que es bautizado aquí en la parroquia de San Francisco, o unos productos complementarios para compartir con nuestro “ministerio de alimentos para las personas que pasan hambre.” Si usted tiene algo de bebé o ropa que a sus hijos han dejado, por favor, donarla a cualquiera de nuestros locales de tiendas de segunda mano. Existen innumerables formas de ayudar tanto a nivel local como mundial. Asegúrese de dejar que su madre sepa que estaba pensando en ella y en todo lo que ella siempre hizo contigo en el camino… y que tu has hecho un buen acto en honor de ella. Se sentirá orgullosa. Bendiciones en este día de la Madres de parte del personal de la parroquia de San Francisco… Pg. 7

Peace and Justice / La Paz y La Justicia Issues of Peace and Justice The gospel says those present at the ascension of the Lord “returned to Jerusalem with great joy.” Why were they feeling “great joy” and not great sadness? Perhaps they were feeling the great peace that Jesus had brought. “The peace of Christ is, in the first place, reconciliation with the Father, which is brought about by the ministry Jesus entrusted to his disciples and which begins with the proclamation of peace: ‘Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ Peace then, is reconciliation with one’s brothers and sisters, for in the prayer that Jesus taught us—the Our Father—the forgiveness that we ask of God is linked to the forgiveness that we grant to our brothers and sisters: ‘forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors’. With this twofold reconciliation Christians can become peacemakers and therefore participate in the Kingdom of God, in accordance with what Jesus himself proclaims in the Beatitudes: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God’” (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, #492). In addition to being called to this “two-fold reconciliation” in our personal relationships, we are called as a people—as a nation—to forgive and reconcile in great ways; e.g. criminal justice reform, economic justice, ecological justice that calls for restoration and renewal, immigration law reform, and much more. Let us join in the renewal of the earth in these and many other ways; such work can lead us, too, to great joy.

Fomentar La Paz y La Justicia

El evangelio dice que los presentes en la ascensión del Señor "volvieron a Jerusalén con gran alegría." ¿Por qué sienten "gran alegría" y no una gran tristeza? Quizás sienten la gran paz que Jesús les había traído. "La paz de Cristo se encuentra en primer lugar en la reconciliación con el Padre, que es llevada a cabo por el ministerio que Jesús encomendó a sus discípulos y que comienza con el anuncio de la paz: "Cuando entréis, a una casa en primer lugar, decir: "La paz a esta casa!" La paz es primero, después, la reconciliación con los hermanos y hermanas, en la oración que Jesús nos enseñó, el "Padre nuestro", el perdón que pedimos a Dios está vinculado con el perdón que concedemos a nuestros hermanos y hermanas: "perdónanos nuestras deudas como nosotros perdonamos nuestros deudores". Con esta doble reconciliación Los Cristianos pueden convertirse en artífices de paz y, por tanto, han de participar en el Reino de Dios, de acuerdo con lo que Jesús mismo proclama en las Bienaventuranzas: "Bienaventurados los pacíficos, porque ellos serán llamados hijos de Dios" (Compendio de la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia por el Pontificio Consejo de Justicia y Paz, # 492). Además de ser llamados a esta "doble reconciliación" en nuestras relaciones personales, estamos llamados como pueblo, como nación, a perdonar y a reconciliarnos en gran manera, por ejemplo: reformar la justicia penal, la justicia económica, la justicia ecológica a la restauración y renovación, apoyar la ley de la reforma de inmigración, y mucho más. Nos unimos en la renovación de la tierra de estas y de muchas otras maneras; este tipo de trabajo nos puede llevar, también, a una gran alegría. Pg. 12
