Thoughts From this Sunday’s Readings by Fr. John
Previous reflections can be found on his blog at
Patrick and Hanna Frost
Today is the 6th Sunday of Easter. Our journey of discovery of
the risen Christ with the disciples is drawing to its dramatic
conclusion. Next Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of the
Ascension of the Lord and then on May 15 we celebrate the great
Feast of Pentecost. In these closing days of the Easter Season our
readings, especially the Gospel, change from direct encounters
with the Risen Christ to Jesus’ Last Supper Discourses from
St. John’s Gospel where Jesus assured the disciples that no matter
what happened, they would not be left to fend for themselves.
A Baptismal Preparation Class will be held on Sunday,
May 1, at 10am in the Library. Classes are held on the 1st
Sunday of each month, unless the first Sunday falls on a
holiday weekend. Babes in arms are welcome. Contact
Kathy Boats at (678) 466-1701.

MACS May Meeting. MACS (Mature Adult Catholic Singles) is
a service and fellowship ministry for singles of the parish ages 40
years and older. Our next meeting will be for dinner in the Adult
Faith Room on the second floor of the Faith Formation Building of
the church on Saturday, May 14, at 6:30pm. This will be a potluck
supper - please bring a dish to share. Please contact Eileen Lavoie

Cursillo News. The South Side Ultreya will meet
at Holy Trinity on Saturday, May 21 after the 5:30pm Mass. The
gathering will begin with a potluck dinner. Bring your favorite
dish to share. Tea and coffee will be provided or bring your own
beverage. If you have made a Cursillo and have not been able to
attend an Ultreya gathering in the past, please plan to join us for an
evening of good food and fellowship. Our program for the gathering will be presented by Henk Smit. Or if you would like to learn
about the Cursillo Movement, please join us or call Barbara Reich
for more information at (770) 487-6898.
In the Gospel reading we hear today Jesus told his disciples and
he tells us that, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my
Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our
dwelling with him” (John 14:23). For St. John love is the foundation of everything. Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI, wrote his first
Encyclical Letter, Deus Caritas Est (God is Love) to highlight
God’s love for us which he called “the heart of the Christian
faith.” By keeping the word of God deep in our hearts our faith
can grow and mature. Pope Benedict said, “The love-story
between God and man consists in the very fact that this communion of will increases in a communion of thought and sentiment,
and thus our will and God's will increasingly coincide: God's will
is no longer for me an alien will, something imposed on me
from without by the commandments, but it is now my own will,
based on the realization that God is in fact more deeply present to
me than I am to myself. Then self-abandonment to God increases
and God becomes our joy” (Deus Caritas Est, 17).
The Easter Season is about mystagogy, to lead through the
mysteries. Mystagogy is part of the Christian Initiation process
when newly baptised Catholics are introduced to and participate
in the sacramental life of the Church. But mystagogy is so much
more than an introduction to the sacramental mysteries of the
Church. It is a lifelong process. It is our perpetual discovery of
God’s abiding love for us.
O God, you have created us,
you have called us,
and you have chosen us to be your people.
You have promised to make Your dwelling place
within the hearts of all who hear Your words
and put them into practice.
Send Your Spirit to bring to our minds
all that Your Son, Christ Jesus our Lord, did and taught,
and empower us to bear witness to Him
in our own words and deeds.
We ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ
who lives and reigns with you forever and ever.

Reflexiones sobre las lecturas de este domingo del Padre Rico.
1ro de mayo 2016
Sexto Domingo de Pascua
La Pascua llega a los no-judíos. La primera lectura recuerda un momento
coyuntural de la Iglesia naciente en el que los Apóstoles se vieron enfrentados a una pregunta inédita de profundas consecuencias. La cuestión es
ésta: a la vista de lo que significa la Ley de Moisés, que fue dada por Dios,
¿deben los paganos cumplir esa Ley? Un modo breve y un tanto dramatico de plantear esto mismo es: ¿hay que circuncidar a los cristianos
venidos del paganismo? La circuncisión, en efecto, es la puerta a la
observancia de toda la Ley. Las dos posturas tenían quién las apoyara.
Por un lado, la sabiduría y santidad de esa Ley, que por mucho tiempo fue
la señal de elección y el motivo válido de orgullo de los judíos, no se ve
por qué no puedas o deban llegar a los no judíos. Por otro lado, si es
verdad que somos salvos esencialmente por la fe y es ella sola quien nos
abre la puerta a la gracia de Cristo, ¿en qué sentido es necesaria la Ley
antigua, como si faltara alguna perfección a la gracia que ha venido precisamente para hacer perfecto lo que la Ley de Moisés no podía alcanzar?
Al final, como escuchamos, quedó en vigor esta segunda propuesta,
avalada por el testimonio misionero de Pablo, el discurso de Santiago y la
autoridad de Pedro. Esta reunión de Apóstoles y otros discípulos, en la
que se pudo discutir y solventar la cuestión de la Ley y los cristianos
venidos del mundo pagano, es conocida como el Primer Concilio de
la Iglesia, o Concilio de Jerusalén. A lo largo de los siglos la Iglesia ha
tenido que apelar muchas veces a ese mismo recurso: reunir a sus obispos,
en cuanto sucesores de los apóstoles, para discernir, con la ayuda del
Espíritu Santo, cuestiones doctrinales, morales, litúrgicas o pastorales de
gran alcance. La última de esas reuniones fue el Concilio Vaticano II.
Los apóstoles están en el cimiento de la ciudad de luz. El tono de optimismo y de alabanza a Dios no abandona nunca a las lecturas del tiempo
pascual. En particular, estos textos del Apocalipsis, que hemos encontrado varias veces en la segunda lectura, simplemente rebosan del gozo del
Cielo, como dejándonos saborear un poco de la alegría que nos aguarda,
allí donde la Pascua no acaba jamás. En esta lectura, llena como siempre
de los símbolos usuales del Apocalipsis, destaquemos el lugar de honor de
los Apóstoles, por enlazar también con el tema de la primera lectura.
Ellos son llamados basamentos o cimientos, y sobre su fortaleza se apoya
la muralla que defiende a la ciudad santa. De aquí aprendemos qué es o
quién es un apóstol de Cristo: su fe, su oración, su palabra, sus obras de
amor le dan firmeza al edificio que no ha de caer.
En cada eucaristía de domingo hay un elemento que no falta jamás: la
profesión de fe, que usualmente renovamos recitando el Credo, o también
el llamado Símbolo de los Apóstoles. Hay una lógica profunda en ello: si
el Domingo es el día del Señor, si es el día que nos acerca con fuerza a la
Pascua de Cristo, fuente de nuestra propia Pascua, tiene sentido que al
acercarnos al Cielo recordemos quiénes y con qué enseñanzas nos han
abierto ese Cielo.
El Espíritu Santo y el Resucitado. ¿Quién entre nosotros no ha anhelado
eso que sería estar en tiempos de Cristo, poder verlo “en vivo”? Él mismo
lo predijo: “Vendrán días cuando ansiaréis ver uno de los días del Hijo del
Hombre, y no lo veréis.” (Lucas 17,22). Y sin embargo, Jesús no era
Supermán, antes de la cruz, ni es el Hombre Invisible después de la resurrección. El mismo amor, la misma unción que hizo posible su ministerio
público, su donación y gloria en la Cruz y su bendita resurrec
Espíritu Santo se atribuye el singular milagro de amor que es la Encarnación del Hijo único de Dios. Nada de extraño entonces que ese mismo
Espíritu prolongue de algún modo esa Encarnación no en el sentido de
conservar al Cristo glorioso entre nosotros en esta tierra sino haciéndonos
ya desde esta tierra más y más semejantes al Cristo del Cielo. Amén.

May: Human Trafficking and Sporting Events
Traffickers are opportunistic hunters and see major
sporting events, and the thousands of people who flock
to sports venues, as an opportunity for huge profits
with little risk of penalty or punishment. Human trafficking is a
business, and traffickers will take advantage of what they
perceive to be good business opportunities, including national and
international sporting events. For more information, please visit

spiritually. When we ask Mary to be our Mother by consecrating/entrusting ourselves to her, we
place ourselves under Her care and protection, and allow her to embrace us even more closely.
On June 4 there will be sheets of paper available for you to fill out with your name and/or the
names of the people, ministry, or group that you wish to entrust to her. A binder will be placed
before the statue of our Blessed Mother in the sanctuary. During the consecration ceremony we will process forward to place our sheet
of paper in the binder.
If you cannot be physically present and are joining us in spirit, you may email names of individuals, families, groups or ministries you
wish to entrust to Our Blessed Mother, and they will be written in the binder for you. When sending this email:
Please put “Consecration to the IHM” in the subject line
List the names/or family name, ministry or group you wish to consecrate (entrust) to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Send the email to Terri Thomas at [email protected]

your 33 day preparation would be Tuesday, May 3.
There are wonderful videos that will greatly enrich your 33 day
preparation available to you for no cost through our parish

“Programs” and scroll down to “Exploring the Catholic Faith”
where you will find “33 Days to Morning Glory.” Click on that
and enjoy! A digital copy of the book is there as well.
Consider forming a small group or gather your family and do
this preparation together. You will be blessed!
A Journey of Conversion

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults): Helping you to live a Gospel inspired life in an increasingly secular world
Have you been coming to Mass for awhile and think, “what does it mean to be Catholic?”
Are you interested in finding out what Catholics really believe? Join us for Inquiry.
Now might be the perfect time to join us. Wednesdays, 6:30-8pm.
All sessions are informal and completely commitment free.
Inquiry meets year-round
so it’s always the right time to join us!
What do we mean by the word “Catechesis?”
It’s the apostolic work of passing on (literally ‘handing
down’) the truths of the faith in an organic and systematic
way. In doing so, the believer may understand, confess, and
live that faith as a disciple of Christ. It is also the process of
being initiated into the fullness of Christian life through an
encounter with God in worship, with Christ our teacher, and
in the communion of other believers.
RCIA topics this week, Wednesday, May 4:
Those in Mystagogy will continue with
Altaration: The Mysteries of the Mass
For those currently in formation to receive their
Sacraments on the Vigil of the Feast of Pentecost,
our topic will center on: The Four Last Things
(Final Judgment, Heaven, Hell (& Purgatory)
“And then they will see the Son of man coming in a
cloud with power and great glory” Luke 21:27
