Fifth Sunday of Easter Congratulations to the over 180 young people
CHRIST THE GOOD SHEPHERD CATHOLIC COMMUNITY
SPRING, TEXAS
Fifth Sunday of Easter
Congratulations to the over 180 young people who
received their First Communion on Saturday at 10:30
a.m. They and their families have all been working very
hard over the past several months and we are excited for
them. I would like to add, however, that this is the First
Communion—not the last!
Parents, at your children’s baptism, you made a solemn
oath to instruct your children in the faith and I know that
you all work hard to fulfill that oath. But I want to gently
remind you that since their baptism, the children have a
right to their faith and it is up to the adults in their life to
model the faith as well as chauffer them to and from
church for religious education sessions and most
importantly holy Mass.
The month of May has been traditionally held as a month
when we honor the Blessed Virgin Mary. I would invite
everyone to consider the possibility of praying the holy
rosary. This can certainly be done privately, but would be
wonderful if families prayed it together or in other groups.
Remember that the rosary is a way of meditation on some
of the mysteries of, for the most part, the life of Jesus.
There are four sets of mysteries.
The Joyful Mysteries (Mondays and Saturdays) center on
the Annunciation of Gabriel to Mary, the Visitation of
Mary with Elizabeth, The Nativity or birth of Jesus, the
Presentation of Jesus in the Temple and finally the finding
of the child, Jesus, in the Temple at the age of 12 or so.
The Luminous Mysteries or Mysteries of Light
(Thursdays) including the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan,
the Wedding at Cana, the proclamation of the Kingdom of
God by Jesus, the Transfiguration of Jesus on Mt. Tabor,
and the Institution of the Eucharist.
The Sorrowful Mysteries (Tuesday and Fridays)
including the Agony in the Garden, the scourging of Jesus,
the crowning with thorns, the carrying of the cross and the
crucifixion.
The Last set of mysteries are the Glorious Mysteries
(Wednesdays and Sundays) including the Resurrection of
Jesus, the Ascension of Jesus, the descent of the Holy
Spirit, the assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the
coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary as Queen of heaven.
Finally I would like to urge everyone to fill out a survey
so that you can have input on the Master Plan that we are
beginning to work on for the parish. We are asking for what
is working well now and what needs to be improved.
We are inviting everyone to dream about what the
future would look like for our parish. The survey is
one per person and we would like as many people to
participate as possible. You can download a survey
from our parish web site (www.cgsccdogh.org) or
pick one up at the reception desk. Thank you!
Christ the Good Shepherd come to our aid.

Quinto Domingo de Pascua
Felicitaciones a los más de 180 jóvenes que recibieron su
Primera Comunión el sábado a las 10:30am; y sus familias
han estado trabajando muy duro durante los últimos meses,
estamos muy entusiasmados por ellos. Quisiera añadir, sin
embargo, que esta es la primera Comunión, y no la última.
Padres de familia; en el bautismo de sus hijos, hizo un
juramento solemne el instruir a sus hijos en la fe y sé que
todos trabajan duro para cumplir ese juramento. Pero quiero
recordarle amablemente que desde su bautismo, los niños
tienen el derecho a su fe y es de los adultos involucrados en
la vida del niño modelar y guiar la fe de la iglesia, la
educación religiosa y lo más importante la asistencia a la
santa Misa.
El mes de mayo se ha celebrado tradicionalmente como el mes
cando honramos a la Virgen María. Quiero invitar a todos a
considerar la posibilidad de rezar el santo rosario. Esto sin duda
puede ser hecho en privado, pero sería maravilloso si las familias
oran juntas o en otros grupos. Recuerde que el rosario es una
forma de meditación de algunos de los misterios en su mayor
parte de la vida de Jesús. Hay cuatro conjuntos de misterios.
Los misterios gozosos (lunes y sábados) sede de la
Anunciación de Gabriel a María, la Visitación de María a Isabel,
La Natividad o nacimiento de Jesús, la presentación de Jesús en
el Templo y, por último, el niño Jesús es encontrado en el templo
a la edad de 12 años más o menos.
Los Misterios Luminosos o Misterios de luz (los jueves)
incluyendo el Bautismo de Jesús en el Jordán, las bodas de
Cana, el anuncio del reino de Dios, Jesús, la Transfiguración de
Jesús en el monte Tabor., y la institución de la Eucaristía.
Los misterios Dolorosos (martes y viernes), incluyendo la
agonía en el huerto, la flagelación de Jesús, la coronación de
espinas, la cruz y la crucifixión.
El último conjunto de misterios son los misterios gloriosos
(Miércoles y Domingos) incluyendo la resurrección de Jesús, la
Ascensión de Jesús, la venida del Espíritu Santo, la asunción de
la Santísima Virgen María, y la coronación de la Virgen María
como Reina del cielo.
Por último, me gustaría animar a todos a llenar su encuesta
para que pueda tomar parte en el Plan Estratégico que estamos
promoviendo para trabajar en la parroquia. Lo que estamos
pidiendo que nos dé su opinión, que funciona bien y lo que se
debe mejorar. Estamos invitando a todos a soñar cómo sería el
futuro de nuestra parroquia. La encuesta es uno por
persona y nos gustaría que participe la más gente como
sea posible. Usted puede descargar el formulario de la
encuesta en el sitio web parroquial (www.cgsccdogh.org)
recoja uno en la oficina parroquial, en recepción. ¡Muchas
Gracias!
Cristo el buen pastor, ven en nuestra ayuda,
