Second Sunday of Easter
What will help you to believe? Today’s scripture readings tell
of faith and doubt. They offer stories “recorded to help you
believe,” as the passage from John’s Gospel (20:31) remarks
today. There is an urgency about this. On this Second Sunday
of Easter we are challenged to join the company of
believers—countless men and women who witnessed the
power of the apostles’ faith.
There is no doubt that this power comes from Jesus Christ.
The second reading, from the book of Revelation, reports
John’s mystical vision of the Son of Man, who proclaims,
“Once I was dead, but now I live” (Revelation 1:18). The
Gospel gathers everyone but Thomas to see the Risen Jesus
and receive the Holy Spirit from him. Like Thomas, we who
have come along later must have faith so that we can have life.

Diocesan 2nd Collection
(Flood Victims) - Letter from Fr. Mark Toups
As we are all keenly aware, last week's weather with accompanying
flooding was a devastating blow to our Louisiana brothers and
sisters just north of us. Families, whole communities, and even St.
Ben's Seminary itself, were hit hard with rain and flood. The
weather last week was an extraordinary event...and extraordinary
events often require extraordinary responses.
We are fully aware that there have been several second of late. We
are aware of the "feel" that the second collections have in the
minds and hearts of many parishioners. However, Bishop Fabre
feels compelled by the Christian charity for us to respond.
Therefore, Bishop Fabre is asking that there be a second collection
the weekend of Divine Mercy Sunday, the second weekend of
Easter, April 2nd & 3rd, 2016 to assist our Louisiana brothers and
sister affected by the flooding. If you should have any questions
for Bishop Fabre, or desire to speak with him personally, we invite
you to call us directly 985-850-3124. Thank for your support.
