Sunday, April 5, 2015 Rejoice and Be Glad
Acts 10:34a, 37–43; Psalm 118:1–2, 16–17, 22–23 (24);
Colossians 3:1–4 or 1 Corinthians 5:6b– 8; John 20:1–9,
or, at an afternoon or evening Mass, Luke 24:13–35.
As we sing alleluias once again, as we hear of Christ’s rising
from the dead, it seems that our lives have pointed to this day.
Indeed, our lives are focused on the Resurrection. This is the
major feast day of the Church, for Christ came to die and rise
from the dead for us. From that dying and rising, we have new
life in Christ; we are united with God. Our churches, then, are
decorated in gold and white, colors of new life and rejoicing. In
the Responsorial Psalm, we sing, “This is the day the Lord has
made; let us rejoice and be glad,” for our lives are centered on
this day. It is the day that provides hope for us. We are not
dead because of our sin but forgiven because of God’s mercy.
In the reading from the Acts of the Apostles, St. Peter summarizes what he has witnessed. Jesus was anointed, hanged, raised
from the dead, and made visible to his followers. These followers preach, continuing to tell the story of the one who forgives
sins. It is clear from this reading that Peter’s life has been
changed. He now traces events and sees their culmination in
the Resurrection. What meaning does the Resurrection have in
your life? Are you open to its giving you a new perspective?
Do you revolve your life around Easter?

Predicaccion de la Pascua por Padre Carmelo Mele, O.P. (Una Parte)
La viuda llevó a su familia al cementerio. No era un viaje sencillo.
Porque no tenían coche, tomaron buses: dos para llegar al fin de la línea urbana y
uno para transitar por los suburbios. De la parada de bus la familia caminó a pie
otra milla para llegar a la fosa del padre de la familia y su hijo. Llevaron herramientas para trabajar el suelo de la fosa. Como esta familia, las tres mujeres se
dirigen al sepulcro de Jesús en el evangelio. Las mujeres llevan perfumes para embalsamar el cadáver una vez que lo tengan limpio. Pues como San Marcos cuenta
la historia, no tenían tiempo para lavar la sangre del cuerpo el viernes antes de anochecer. A lo mejor las mujeres piensan que van a demostrarle a Jesús su cariño por
la última vez. Después de todo, piensan ellas, es muerto y no pueden hacer nada
acerca de eso. Tal vez muchos acudan a la iglesia con una resignación semejante
esta Pascua. ¡Aunque sólo fuera como antes – dicen entre sí mismos – con todos
los hombres llevando corbatas y las mujeres sus sombreros nuevos! Hace cincuenta
años en muchas partes del país el domingo de Pascua era como un desfile de
modas. Después de asistir en los servicios religiosos la gente pasaba por las calles
llevando su ropa nueva con saludos para uno y otro. Se suponía que los vestidos
representaran el ser humano nuevo que fue recreado por las gracias de la resurrección. Pero había algo de alarde en el comportamiento de algunos. Muchos acudían
la iglesia sólo ese día. Era como si la Pascua fuera para mostrar la ropa en vez de
que la ropa era para mostrar la Pascua. Se puede comparar esa desgracia con la
dura realidad que enfrenta a las mujeres en el evangelio. Pensando en la piedra
cubriendo la entrada del sepulcro, preguntan: “¿Quién nos la quitará?”
April 5, 2015, Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord —B 2
Acts 10, 34 +37-43; Psalm 118; Colossians 3, 1-4; John 20, 1-9
Happy Easter! He is alive the cr ucified man
of Good Friday! He sprang out of his tomb and
proved to be more powerful than his torturers!
“Death and Life have contended in that combat stupendous. The Prince of Life who died,
reigns immortal! Alleluia!” (Easter hymn)
The thrilling scream of Mary Magdalene to
Peter:”HE IS RISEN!” resonates in the believer’s heart today with the same
freshness and power of the first Easter. Jesus is not simply an ordinary man;
He is the FIRST BORN; the NEW ADAM, the Lord of a new Creation,
the HEAD OF THE CHURCH. His victory over death is our victory. A
new day has begun, a new era. Too wonderful for me, this knowledge!
Because of this we cannot live as in the time of ignorance. We can no
longer allow ourselves to celebrate this feast with the old yeast of malice and
wickedness! He is risen! We also must rise to newness of life and be the
witnesses of love, unity and peace in today’s world.
Some still pretend that in the postmodern world Christianity is obsolete and
gradually crumbling down. Yet, who will provide the answer to the inevitable quest for meaning that haunts the human heart? Will the modern
man push aside the ONE that alone gives dignity, worth and splendor to
our humanity? Blessed are they who know that a glorious eternal life is
granted to “those who believe” and that love for God and neighbor is the
supreme law of human existence. Praised be the lamb that was slain and
made of us a kingdom of priests who will reign on the earth! Wash your
robe in his blood!
May the Lord grant you the grace of FAITH! Rediscover your eternal destiny, the power and the splendor of one saved by the blood of the Lamb! Believe and LIVE TO THE FULL!

Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord
"They have taken the Lord from the
tomb, and we don't know where
they put him." This must have felt
like adding insult to injury. Mary
Magdalene had stood faithfully by
Jesus up to his last moment on the
cross. She had seen him laid in the
tomb and she had already visited his
body there to mourn and pay her
last respects. But today, on her arrival, she finds the body missing.
Wasn't it enough to torture and crucify her innocent Lord? Why did
they have to take away her one last
bit of consolation? Why did they
steal his body?
Imagine the despair she must have wrestled with at this moment.
As if the events of Good Friday had not been enough, now she
faced another tragic moment. From Mary's perspective, things could
not have gotten any worse. Every bit of evidence around her converged to make her feel completely powerless and afraid. Her eyes
could only see the darkness of the empty tomb. Here now, into this
rock-bottom moment when no human hope remained, here burst in
the risen Christ. Just when there was no possible solution, when
everything was far beyond repair, suddenly Jesus appeared, glorious, victorious, and completely and utterly unexpected. His triumph
over death was more than that: it was also a triumph over human
hopelessness and despair. It was proof that God is bigger than our
biggest problems. He is more powerful than the most threatening
evils and all the fears that lurk around in our lives.
The joy of Easter is ours, today and every day. As Christians, we
can rejoice in belonging to a God who is ready and able to break
through the toughest barriers of sin and death, even when we least
expect it.
Rejoice always, for He is Risen!
