 FROM THE PASTOR 
“Love one another as I have loved you.” That commandment was issued by Jesus
at the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, shortly after He rose from supper, took off
His outer garments, took a towel, tied it around His waist, poured water into a
basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and dry them with the towel around
His waist. (cf. Saint John XIII: 4-5) “If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have
washed your feet” He said,” you ought to wash one another’s feet. I have given
you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do. (Saint
John XIII: 14-15)
Such fruitful service to people – people who betray us; people who deny us; people who are unfaithful to us – is
not easy to follow. It can only be borne from love, and not our love but God’s love; the love of another! (cf.
I Saint John iv: 10)
More often than not in our lives it is the love of a mother that teaches us
what love is. “Most of us” writes Father George A. Kelly in The Catholic
Family Handbook “know persons who have received the finest educations
which universities can bestow, who yet lead miserable lives because they
have never achieved a capacity to love. On the other hand, we also know of
men and women whose intellectual achievements are below normal but
whose lives are filled with happiness because their mothers showed them
how to love other human beings. It follows that in helping your child to
satisfy his basic emotional needs to love and be loved, you give something as
necessary as food for his full development. So do not be beguiled by
aspirations for a worldly career or by the desire to prove yourself as
intelligent as men or as capable in affairs of the world as they. The father must always remain a public figure.
The mother is the domestic figure par excellence. In teaching your child the meaning of unselfish love you will
achieve a greater good than almost any other accomplishment of which human beings are capable.”
You are the most important person your child will ever know. Your relationship with him will transcend, in depth
of feeling, any other relationship he probably will ever have — even the one with his marriage partner. As noted
above, from you he will learn what true love really is.”

A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR
WOULD YOU HELP "GIVE US A
LIFT"
?
Shortly before Christmas 2014, Our Holy Redeemer's outdoor lift became
inoperable. And while it could be repaired (again) at a cost of a few thousand
dollars, I have decided, after going “up and down” that route a few times
before, that Our Holy Redeemer has spent enough money on repairs and that
it makes more (dollars and) sense to replace it an estimated cost (based on
the figures of three proposals) of $40,000.00. In order to help offset that
cost, the Parish has reached out to (and is waiting to hear from) Nassau
County, the Village of Freeport, and private charitable organizations that
grant funds for services that assist the elderly and disabled. Any assistance
you can provide will literally give us a lift!

OUR HOLY REDEEMER ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Yes, I would like to help give Our Holy Redeemer “a LIFT!”!
Please deposit your donation with this form in the Sunday Offertory basket or drop it off at the Rectory, Monday through Saturday

NOW A WORD FROM OUR SAINTS
(ABOUT THE FAMILY)
APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION
FAMILIARIS CONSORTIO
OF POPE JOHN PAUL II
TO THE EPISCOPATE
TO THE CLERGY AND TO THE FAITHFUL
OF THE WHOLE CATHOLIC CHURCH
ON THE ROLE OF THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY
IN THE MODERN WORLD
(22 November 1981)
PART THREE
THE ROLE OF THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY
IV - SHARING IN THE LIFE AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH
3. The Christian Family
To Discover the Image of God in Each Brother and Sister
64. Inspired and sustained by the new commandment of love, the Christian family welcomes, respects and
serves every human being, considering each one in his or her dignity as a person and as a child of God.
It should be so especially between husband and wife and within the family, through a daily effort to promote
a truly personal community, initiated and fostered by an inner communion of love. This way of life should
then be extended to the wider circle of the ecclesial community of which the Christian family is a part.
Thanks to love within the family, the Church can and ought to take on a more homelike or family dimension,
developing a more human and fraternal style of relationships.
Love, too, goes beyond our brothers and sisters of the same faith since "everybody is my brother or sister."
In each individual, especially in the poor, the weak, and those who suffer or are unjustly treated, love knows
how to discover the face of Christ, and discover a fellow human being to be loved and served.
In order that the family may serve man in a truly evangelical way, the instructions of the Second Vatican
Council must be carefully put into practice: "That the exercise of such charity may rise above any deficiencies
in fact and even in appearance, certain fundamentals must be observed. Thus, attention is to be paid to the
image of God in which our neighbour has been created, and also to Christ the Lord to Whom is really offered
whatever is given to a needy person."
While building up the Church in love, the Christian family places itself at the service of the human person and
the world, really bringing about the "human advancement" whose substance was given in summary form in
the Synod's Message to families: "Another task for the family is to form persons in love and also to practice
love in all its relationships, so that it does not live closed in on itself, but remains open to the community,
moved by a sense of justice and concern for others, as well as by a consciousness of its responsibility towards
the whole of society."
(To be continued …)
Please Pray for Our Priests…,
O God, Who made Your Only Begotten Son eternal High Priest, grant that those He has chosen
as ministers and stewards of Your mysteries may be found faithful in carrying out the ministry
they have received. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

1st Reading: Acts I: 5-17, 20a, 20c-26
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 103
2nd Reading: 1 John IV: 11-16
Gospel: Saint John XVII: 11b-19
SCRIPTURE REFLECTION
In today’s readings we find
one of the most remarkable
phrases from the entire Bible:
“God is love.” (See 1 John 4:710)
This is no mere
theological exclamation from
the part of the writer. Saint
John says: “Whoever is
without love does not know
God, for God is love.” Then he
goes on to say that the way to know if you are a child
of God or not is to find out how much you love others.
“Everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows
God.” Jesus in the Gospel says the same thing: “This is
my commandment: love one another as I love you . . .
You are my friends if you do what I command you.”
(See Saint John 15:9-17). This great Feast Time of the
Church in which we celebrate the Resurrection of
Christ and our own resurrection, is also the time to
take stock of how much we are loved by God, and how
much we love our brothers and sisters. Only then can
we be assured of living the new life, the life of the
children of God, children of the One Who is Love.
Why not try it, especially in this Month of May, which
the Church dedicates to Mary, the first person who
loved Christ and because of that became our mother!
… please call the Rectory if you know anyone in
serious need of prayers. The 25 May 2015 bulletin
will be the last date the names below will appear
unless we hear from you. Thank you.

As we join together to celebrate all of the wonderful Mothers in our
lives, let’s also take time to remember and pray for all the thousands
of Mothers who worry about how they are going to put food on the
table for their children this week.
More than 35% of the 300,000 people on Long Island who receive

continue to care for God’s children and their families through our Parish Outreach programs

Our hope is that each family will make a gift. We cannot ask
everyone to consider the same size gift, but after prayer and
reflection, each family is invited to make a gift in response to God’s
generosity in their lives.
No gift is too small and all gifts make a difference
in the lives of others!

NEWS FROM THE DE LA SALLE SCHOOL
(516) 379-8660
Our Annual Spring Gala is at Carltun on the Park in East Meadow this coming Friday, 15 May. The theme
is “A New Energy” and our honoree is Mary Jane McCartney, former Trustee of our school and retired Vice
President for Gas Operations at Con Edison. Tickets to the event are $200 a person and available through
our website, www.DeLaSalleSchool.org, or by coming to the school office during the week between 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM.
A cash raffle will be held at the Gala and tickets for that are $100 each or seven for $500. You do not have to be present to
win. First prize is $5,000, second is $2,500, and third is $1,000. Only 500 tickets will be sold. You can purchase one at the
school or by sending your donation to us at 87 Pine Street, Freeport, NY 11520. Proceeds from the Gala and the raffle
build our scholarship fund. Thanks for investing in our students!
Our students appreciate the supplementary activities associated with their education such as the trip our eighth graders
took on the LIRR recently to visit the Museum of Jewish Heritage in lower Manhattan. This interdisciplinary activity
integrated their English class work where they are reading The Diary of Ann Frank, their Social Studies class work where
the topic is World War II, and their Religion class work addressing a Gospel response to the evils of bigotry, oppression,
violence, and discrimination. The students’ learning at the museum was accentuated by their visit to the nearby Ground
Zero Memorial. Each student was enriched by his experience in lower Manhattan that day.

FAITH AND MUSIC
Notes from our Music Director, Michael Crouse
How about another exciting Concert Series on the Mile?!
Last summer Our Holy Redeemer sponsored our first concert series
at 175 Woodcleft Avenue, also home of our weekly "Mass on the
Waterfront". Under the direction of Michael Crouse, we provided
six evenings of wonderful and varied entertainment, culminating
with a sacred and Americana program given by members of our
choir. We had such artists as These Three Tenors, Andy Cooney,
The Belles of Broadway and more. Many in attendance have been
asking if we are going to do it again...and the answer is...with your
help...YES!
We are asking for both your input and your donations to raise enough funds to support this summer's
series. At the end of this page there are a few questions that will help us to plan the best evenings for
these programs, so that as many of you as possible may attend.
We also plan to create a decorative plaque with the names of each person, business, or family who donates
$100.00 dollars (or more) towards the funding of the series, which will be permanently displayed at
175 Woodcleft Avenue.
We hope many more will take advantage of these wonderful evenings of music, and we need your help in
spreading the word!
It would be of great assistance if you would take the time to answer the following questions, and then
return the questionnaire to the rectory by _________________________:
1. Were you able to attend any of the concerts last summer?
If yes, how many? _________ Did you find it an enjoyable evening?
2. If no, were you unavailable on Wednesday evenings?
 Yes
 No
 Yes
 No
 Yes
 No
Check the best evening for you to attend:
 Monday
 Tuesday
 Wednesday
(We must avoid the busy weekends. For the past two years, the Freeport Art's Council has provided a
program on Thursday evenings.)
3. Would you be willing to make a donation to help support the series?
 Yes
 No
If yes, would you be willing to donate $100.00 or more, and have your name remembered
on our decorative plaque?
 Yes
 No
If yes, amount of donation: $_________________________________

 DEL PASTOR 
10 DE MAYO DE 2015
“Ámense unos a otros como yo los he amado.” Jesús dio ese mandamiento en la
última Cena el Jueves Santo, poco después se levantó de la mesa, se quitó el
manto, y se ató una toalla a la cintura. Echó agua en un recipiente y se puso a
lavar los pies de los discípulos, y luego se los secaba con la toalla que se había
atado. (vea San Juan XIII:4-5) “Pues si yo, siendo el Señor y el Maestro, les he
lavado los pies” dijo Él, “también ustedes deben lavarse los pies unos a otros. Yo
les he dado ejemplo, y ustedes deben hacer como he hecho yo.” (vea San Juan
XIII:14-15)
Ese servicio fructífero a la gente – gente que nos traiciona; gente que nos niega; gente que nos son infieles – no
es fácil de seguir. Solo se puede lograr mediante el amor, y no nuestro propio amor, sino el amor de Dios; ¡el
amor al prójimo! (vea 1 San Juan iv:10)
Muy a menudo en nuestra vida es el amor de una madre lo que nos enseña lo que el verdadero amor es. "La
mayoría de nosotros", (escribe el Padre George A. Kelly en El Manual de la Familia Católica) "conocemos
personas que han recibido la mejor educación que las universidades pueden otorgar, y que a pesar de ello llevan
vidas miserables porque nunca han logrado la capacidad de amar. Por otro lado, también conocemos hombres y
mujeres cuyos logros intelectuales están por debajo de lo normal, pero cuyas vidas están llenas de felicidad
porque sus madres les enseñaron a amar a otros seres humanos. De ello se desprende que al ayudar a su hijo a
satisfacer sus necesidades emocionales básicas de amar y ser amado, usted le proporciona algo tan necesario
como el alimento para su pleno desarrollo. Así que no se deje engañar por aspiraciones a una carrera mundana
o por el deseo de demostrar que usted es tan inteligente como otros y capaz en asuntos del mundo como ellos.
El padre siempre debe seguir siendo una figura pública. La madre es la figura doméstica por excelencia. El
enseñarle a su hijo el significado del amor desinteresado logra un bien mayor que casi cualquier otra realización
de la cual los seres humanos son capaces.”
Usted es la persona más importante que su hijo conocerá. Su relación con él trasciende en profundidad de
sentimiento cualquier otra relación que usted probablemente tendrá - incluso la de su cónyuge. Como se señaló
anteriormente, de usted él va a aprender lo que realmente es el amor verdadero.”

¡El Padre Arcoleo, los Sacerdotes, Diáconos, Religiosos,
y el Personal de Nuestro Santo Redentor les desean a todas
las madres un Día de la Madre lleno de bendiciones!
REFLEXIÓN SEMANAL
En las lecturas de hoy encontramos una de las frases más sobresalientes de toda la Biblia: “Dios es
amor.” Esta exclamación no es una mera conclusión teológica de parte del escritor. San Juan es
muy práctico y nos dice: “El que no ama, no conoce a Dios, porque Dios es amor.” De hecho, pasa a
decir: “todo el que ama ha nacido de Dios y conoce a Dios.” (Vea 1 Juan 4:7-10). Jesús nos dice lo
mismo en el Evangelio: “Este es mi mandamiento: que se amen los unos a los otros como yo los he
amado. . . . Ustedes son mis amigos, si hacen lo que yo les mando.” (Vea Juan 15, 9-17). De modo
que el tiempo de la Pascua, la gran fiesta de resurrección de la Iglesia es también el tiempo de
reflexionar en cuánto y cómo amamos al prójimo, a nuestro hermano en Cristo. Solo entonces
podemos estar seguros de estar viviendo la nueva vida, la vida de los hijos de Dios, los hijos de
Aquel que es amor. ¿Por qué no tratar esto en este mes de Mayo que la Iglesia dedica a María, el primer ser humano
que amó a Cristo y que debido a eso se convirtió en nuestra madre.

campaña de los ministerios católicos
Sirviendo a Dios Mediante el Servicio a Otros
Su contribución a la Campaña de los Ministerios Católicos ayuda a muchas más personas de las que usted
pueda pensar. Las siguientes palabras narran el relato de solo una de esas personas y una de esas maneras.
CATÓLICOS QUE MARCAN LA DIFERENCIA
Los programas de las Caridades Católicas incluyen servicios para niños y familias,
ancianos, pobres, personas desfavorecidas, inmigrantes y víctimas del tráfico de
seres humanos.
Cynthia era una adolescente en el Perú cuando a su mamá y papá les prometieron
trabajo, un lugar seguro para vivir, y la residencia legal en los Estados Unidos.
Unos meses después de su llegada a Long Island, comenzaron a darse cuenta de
que eran víctimas de los traficantes de seres humanos; vivían con más de otras 30
víctimas en una casa. Sin importar cuán duro su mamá y papá trabajaban para
pagar la deuda que tenían con los traficantes, la deuda continuaba aumentando
cada vez más, y los traficantes se negaban a devolverles sus documentos legales.
A Cynthia y a los otros jóvenes que vivían en la casa no se les permitía salir o ir a la
escuela. Mamá y papá trabajaban doble turno para tratar de pagar la siempre
creciente deuda. Las familias recibían una cantidad limitada de alimentos y se enfrentaban a muchos abusos y
privaciones.
Cuando los servicios de inmigración se enteraron del caso, se pusieron en contacto con las Caridades Católicas
para ayudar a las familias. Las Caridades Católicas ayudaron a los adultos a obtener empleo, vivienda,
representación en los tribunales, y también asesoramiento a todas las familias, especialmente a los niños,
muchos de los cuales habían sido traumatizados por la experiencia.
"Voy a volver a la escuela, y muy pronto voy a ser ciudadana", comparte Cynthia
Por favor ayude a Cynthia y a otros contribuyendo a la Campaña de los Ministerios Católicos hoy.

THIS IS MY COMMANDMENT
Saint John XV: 12
Jesus said to His disciples, “As the Father loves Me, so I also love you. Remain in My love. If you
keep My commandments, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and
remain in His love. I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and your joy might be complete.
This is My commandment: love one another as I love you.”
Saint John XV: 9-11
