2 2 A MESSAGE FROM MSGR. MARC I f the Gospel story was a work of fiction, the writer would have told the story in the following order: God saw that his children needed redemption so he sent his son to them. His son taught them, healed them and worked miracles but they did not understand so they arrested him, tortured and killed him. But God used that seeming disaster as part of his own plan and resurrected his son. And they all lived happily ever after. The story would end with the Resurrection. Jesus would stay with his disciples and pick up where he had left off. But that is not how it happened. Jesus did not stay with his disciples and they did not live happily ever after. Jesus ascended to heaven as a sign to his disciples, both then and now, that we are called and sent as pilgrims on our journey to perfection. This is not just a philosophical struggle to attain enlightenment. It is a journey of faith which entails extricating ourselves from our zones of comfort to physically and spiritually, through prayer, study and work become more and more like the person God created us to be. It requires us to sacrifice, to be servants, to put the needs of others before our own, to become more like Jesus in his example of selfless love. It is a journey of a life-time and only finds its completion when we, too, are united with our Creator in the Kingdom. The Apostles took their faith on the road, spreading the Gospel to the corners of the world. They spent their lives in service of Jesus final command, finding that their road to perfection led through their martyrdoms. As we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension, we remember that our roads run before us. The challenge is to take the first step.

3 MESAGE DEL MSGR. MARC 3 Si la historia del evangelio fue un trabajo de ficción, el escritor pudo haber dicho la historia en el orden siguiente: Dios vio que sus hijos necesitaban redención por lo que les envió su hijo. Su hijo les enseñaba, sanaba y hacia milagros pero ellos no entendieron y lo arrestaron, torturaron y mataron. Pero Dios uso ese aparente desastre como parte de su plan y resurrección de su hijo. Y todos vivieron felices para siempre. La historia podría terminar con la resurrección. Jesús se quedaría con sus discípulos y continuaría donde se había quedado. P ero eso no es lo que sucedió, Jesús no se quedó con sus discípulos y ellos no vivieron felices para siempre. Jesús ascendió al cielo como un signo a sus discípulos, tanto entonces como ahora, estamos llamados y enviados como peregrinos en nuestro camino a la perfección. Esto no es solo una lucha filosófica para alcanzar la iluminación. Es un viaje de fe que implica sacarnos de nuestras zonas de comodidad física y espiritualmente, a través de la oración, estudio y trabajo se vuelven más y más como la persona que Dios nos creo para ser. Se nos exige sacrificio, a ser sirvientes, a poner las necesidades de los demás antes que las nuestras, a ser más como Jesús en su ejemplo de entrega total. Se trata de un viaje de toda una vida y se completa cuando nosotros, también, estamos unidos con nuestro Creador en el Reino. Los apóstoles tomaron su fe en el camino, extendiendo el evangelio a las esquinas del mundo. Ellos pasaron sus vidas al servicio del mandato final de Jesús, encontrando que su camino a la perfección los condujo a su martirio. Al celebrar la fiesta de la Ascensión, tenemos en cuenta que nuestros caminos corren delante de nosotros. El desafío es dar el primer paso Lunes 21 de Mayo 1a.

5 O U R F A I T H I N A C T I O N 5 Let the children come to me. Tis the season for sacraments! This Easter season I embarked on a dizzying round of church celebrations - from Easter vigil RCIA adults, RCIA children and even a friend s baby daughter at the cathedral. Each one was perfect. Babies cry, things get misplaced or lost, people show up late and still - it seems to be a perfect moment. May at St Margaret Mary parish means First Communions of all sorts and varieties. We all ooh and ah as the young ones show up in their finery, white dresses and fine ties and suits. They look so surprised when we notice them and congratulate them. This year our whole family gathers to bring our granddaughters to the altar for First Communion. Are they really that old? people ask in amazement. We remember the struggle to give them life, the dedication of their parents to do whatever it took, the steadfast faith of parishioners who prayed and promised us that God would take care of them. When we were panicked and exhausted, this community stepped in and encouraged us, prayed with us and even brought us meals. And now we gather on this perfect day. Perfect because God is here, in the bread, in the faces of those we love and in the community of faith. Jesus invites all children to know him, spend time with him and be nourished by him. Come to the altar, take the bread and wine and join this community of believers. He gathers all our First Communicants and whispers, Taste and See, I will be with you always. Isn t this perfect? Blessings of great perfection to all who share in sacramental celebrations this Easter season. For your Journal-keeping Can I think of something imperfect that on greater reflection turned out to be better than expected? Do I remember my first communion? Are there photos? Do I know someone celebrating a Baptism, Confirmation or Communion?

6 6 ASCENSION Por Humberto Beltrán Hoy celebramos la Ascensión del Señor a los cielos. Cristo ha cumplido con su misión y vuelve al Padre para algún día volver a juzgar al mundo con gran poder y majestad. Pero cómo ha sido esta misión de Cristo aquí en la tierra? Fue un lecho de flores en donde llevando una vida cómoda llegó a alcanzar el primer puesto? Por supuesto que no. Acabamos de celebrar la Pascua. Primero tuvo que encarnarse y ya esto representa una humillación., vivir una vida mucho peor que cualquiera de las nuestras. Recibir el rechazo de los suyos, la traición de los amigos; tuvo que beber el cáliz del dolor, de la cruz, de la muerte antes de llegar a la resurrección y a la ascensión. Cuál es nuestro testimonio de vida? Cristo cumplió con su misión de obediencia a la voluntad del Padre en cada momento y por eso estamos celebrando esta festividad. En la vida cristiana es posible llegar a la resurrección y a la ascensión sin haber pasado por la pasión? La respuesta ya la saben ustedes: primero tenemos que dar nuestro testimonio de vida. Primero tenemos que ir con el papelito de entrada en el Reino del Padre y según nuestro esfuerzo y nuestra docilidad a la gracia así será el buen puesto que alcancemos. Sin embargo, tenemos que tener en cuenta que los criterios no son los criterios del mundo. El Señor nos dice que para producir fruto el grano de trigo tiene que morir, la espiga nace de un grano que se muere en el suelo. El que quiera ser discípulo de Cristo tiene que aprender a negarse a si mismo, matar el egoísmo, tomar la cruz de cada día, nuestra vocación, nuestro deber de estado y seguirle. Qué nos dice nuestra voz interior: somos honestos? Cómo podernos ser testigos de Cristo y así seguir su mandato antes de la ascensión? Diríamos que hay una palabra que casi todo el mundo entiende lo que quiere decir, y esta palabra es ser honesto en nuestras vidas, tratar de hacer aquello bueno que la voz interior de la conciencia nos dicta a cada momento. Debemos buscar siempre la justi- E S P I R I T U A L cia en este mundo para hacerlo más cristiano, más habitable por la humanidad; debemos desempeñar nuestra labor de profeta denunciando y concientizando sobre males que aquejan a nuestro hermano; debemos ser predicadores del mensaje cristiano; debemos ser obreros del Reino, ya comenzado con la venida de Cristo pero que necesita ser completado con nuestro trabajo. Somos testigos del Señor en este mundo? Para realizar esta labor de testigos del Señor en nuestro mundo no estamos solos. El Señor nos envió el Espíritu Santo y nos dio la iglesia, que, como buena madre nos va guiando por caminos seguros, no libres de sacrificio y de negaciones, pero nos lleva al Padre. El mismo Señor nos dijo: Yo estaré con ustedes hasta la consumación de los siglos Por eso nos sentimos confiados, alegres y animosos, porque si el Señor esta con nosotros, quién podrá estar contra nosotros? Los apóstoles del Señor se quedaron mirando hacia el cielo llenos de admiración. Se les presentaron dos hombres vestidos de blanco, que les dijeron: Galileos, qué hacen ahí plantados mirando el cielo? No escapemos de nuestras realidades, mirando pasar los acontecimientos sin nuestra intervención. Reflexión Nosotros estamos hoy celebrando para poder algún día subir también al cielo en la presencia de Dios nuestro Padre en unión de nuestros hermanos, sobre todo aquellos a quienes hemos ayudado o ellos nos han ayudado a alcanzar la vida eterna y verdadera.

8 8 Dejen que los niños vengan a mi Es la temporada sacramental! En esta temporada de Pascua me embarque en una ronda vertiginosa de las celebraciones de la iglesia a partir de la Vigilia Pascual, los niños adultos de RICA, e incluso una hija de un amigo en la catedral. Cada uno fue perfecto. Bebés llorando, cosas fuera de lugar o perdidas, personas que llegan tarde y todavía- parece ser un momento perfecto. Que en la parroquia de Sta. Margarita María las Primeras Comuniones significa de todas clases y variedades. Todos decimos oh! y ah! cuando los jóvenes aparecen con sus mejores galas, vestidos blancos y finas corbatas y trajes. Se ven tan sorprendidos cuando los notamos y felicitamos. Este año nuestra familia entera se reúne para llevar a nuestras nietas al altar para la Primera Comunión. Realmente tienen esa edad? las personas se preguntan con asombro. Recordamos la lucha para darles vida, la dedicación de sus padres hacer lo que sea necesario, la fe inquebrantable de los feligreses de los que oraron y nos prometieron que Dios iba a cuidar de ellos. Cuando estábamos en pánico o exhaustos, está comunidad entró en escena y nos animó, oraron con nosotros e incluso nos trajeron comida. Y ahora nos reunimos en este día perfecto. Perfecto porque Dios está aquí, en el pan, en las caras de esos que amamos y en la comunidad de fe. Jesús invita a todos los niños a conocerlo, a pasar un tiempo con él y ser alimentado por él. Ven al altar, toma el pan y el vino y únete a está comunidad de creyentes. El reúne todas nuestras primeras comunicaciones y susurros, Prueba y ve, yo estaré contigo siempre. No es esto perfecto? Bendiciones de una gran perfección que todos compartimos en celebraciones sacramentales en esta temporada de Pascua. Para su Diario Puedo pensar en algo imperfecto que en la más grande reflexión resulto ser mejor de lo que podría haber imaginado? Me acuerdo de mi Primera Comunión? Hay fotos? Conozco a alguien celebrando un Bautismo, una Confirmación, o una Comunión? Cual es mi esperanza y oración para esa persona? CELEBRANDO 75 AÑOS Una Invitacion para Apreciar los Voluntarios Para honrar a todos los que están sirviendo o han servido a nuestra comunidad en modo alguno como voluntarios, la parroquia le gustaría invitarlos A UNIRSE EN UNA DE LAS MISAS de la mañana del domingo 27 de mayo. A continuación, se invitará a un desayuno continental en el Salón Hegarty después de cada una de esas misas de la mañana. Hemos sido bendecidos por el compromiso de tantas personas a lo largo de nuestros 75 años como parroquia y saber que el Espíritu Santo siga llenando nuestros feligreses con el fervor de compartir su fe en Jesús a través del servicio a la parroquia y a nuestros hermanos y hermanas que más nos necesitan.

PROTEGIENDO NUESTROS NIÑOS Hostigamiento Es Una Forma De Abuso Sabia usted que el hostigamiento (bullying) es una forma de abuso, y por lo tanto esta prohibido en las escuelas católicas? El hostigamiento suele consistir en bromas pesadas, burlas, amenazas, golpes, empujones, y el robo. Pero también pude ser indirecta, como la difusión de rumores que causan a las victimas a ser socialmente aislados a través de ser excluidas socialmente. El acoso cibernético, que implica el uso de la Internet o los teléfonos celulares para enviar mensajes o imágenes inapropiadas de personas o a personas, también es un comportamiento que no se tolera en nuestras escuelas Católicas. Si usted sospecha que algún estudiante es victima de hostigamiento, inmediatamente comunique sus preocupaciones al director de la escuela.

We celebrated last month the amazing gift God has given us in the Incarnation. There is no greater gift than the gift one s self. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son (John 3:16).
