Dear Parishioners and Easter visitors, We are delighted that you have joined us for worship and thanksgiving this Easter season. The Risen Lord Jesus has burst out of the tomb
and declared that death is just an illusion. Let’s start living differently . . . bravely, deeply, lovingly, fearlessly . . . not just after death, but now!
May Jesus breathe Resurrection into our Church so that we can:
• start doing brave things that create justice and spread mercy
• be hospitable to everyone
• have rituals and spiritual practices that are life-giving
Let’s share the joy of our Risen Lord in all that we do, so the world will know that we are Christians by our Love.
Fr. Manny and Sacred Heart Parish

Apreciables feligreses y visitantes de Pascua:
Nos sentimos gratamente complacidos por tenerlos entre nosotros para celebrar la Gloria del Señor.
El Jesús Resucitado, has dejado impresionados al salir vivo de la tumba y estas declarando ahora que la muerte es solo una ilusión. Que podemos comenzar vivir de forma diferente. . .
valientemente, profundamente, con amor, sin temor . . . no solo después de la muerte, pero ahora!
Jesús, llena de tu resurrección a tu Iglesia para que podamos:
• Comenzar a hacer obras buenas para promover la justicia y la misericordia
• Ser generoso con todos
• Hacer vivas nuestras celebraciones y prácticas religiosas
Compartamos la alegría del Señor Resucitado en todo lo que hacemos para que el mundo sepa que somos cristianos por nuestro amor.
P. Manny y el Personal del Sagrado Corazón

PASSION The contrast between the processional reading in today’s liturgy and the proclamation of the Passion is striking. We are given a glimpse of how profoundly the word of God is fulfilled in Jesus. First he must be hailed as the Messiah, the One who is to come. He must be acknowledged by all, though they do not know what they are saying. They think he is the promised king, a worldly king of the Jews who will free them from the Roman occupation. They do not yet understand, even the disciples, exactly where this triumphal procession is leading. In our lives, we too do not know where we are going. (…)
