Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish is a faith-filled community for all cultures and ages dedicated to building the Kingdom of God. We come closer to God by following Jesus Christ through His Word and the Sacraments. Through the Holy Spirit and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we provide a sense of belonging to all God's people through prayer, service and the sharing of our gifts for the praise and glory of God.
 
 
Generous and Loving Creator, you have called us to Malama i ka Makana (Cherish the Gift).  As disciples of your Son, we ask that your Spirit open our minds and hearts to more deeply appreciate your countless blessings.  Increase your transforming spirit within us, so as to nurture our call to stewardship as a way of life marked always by faith-filled prayer, service to others and generous giving.  With the kokua of St. Marianne and St. Damien, teach us to be good stewards so we may return a hundred-fold the makana entrusted to us.  We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

“WE ARE EASTER PEOPLE”
 
“Christ is risen, Alleluia!”

Death is not the last word.  There is a word that transcends death.  It is the word of the resurrection.  The resurrection of Jesus is meant to be a powerful message of hope, renewal and new life.  Easter proclaims that “by the power of God’s love, resurrection dispels wickedness, washes faults away, restores innocence to the fallen and joy to the mourners, drives out hatred, fosters concord and brings down the mighty.”

The Gospel narrates the story of Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome, who went to the tomb of Jesus to anoint His body.  To their utter surprise, they found the tomb unguarded and the stone rolled away.  The body of Jesus was nowhere to be found.  He has risen from death.
 
The resurrection reminds us of God’s power and love.  We are therefore challenged to roll away the “stones” of sin to uncover God’s immense power and love, as when the rolling away of a stone 2,000 years ago.  God’s power and love were revealed in the resurrection of Jesus.

There are “stones” that we should roll away to have a new life in Christ.  The stone of pride.  Roll it away to let the life of humility come out.  The stone of greed.  Roll it away to let the real life of sharing come out.  The stone of being disrespectful.  Roll it away to let the life of helping each other come out.  The stone of resentment and revenge.  Roll it away to let the new life of forgiveness come out.

We find it hard to roll away these big stones.  We need God to help us and we just have to trust His divine power.  He will roll the stones away to let the life of Christ come out and be our life.  Christ is coming out of the tomb.  We do not block His way out.  But rather we go meet Him.

The tomb where Jesus had been buried was found empty.  But the tomb became a space for the angel to proclaim the good news of the resurrection.  The tomb was now the space where the women received the mission to tell the disciples that the victory over death and evil had been won by Jesus.  The tomb became a space where God spread His light.

The resurrection is about the spaces God offers us to live our mission.  Our ordinary daily life offers many such spaces…in our homes, schools, playgrounds, buses, malls, offices and social media.  Let therefore the risen Christ empty them of darkness and despair and fill them with His light and hope.

As Christians, we are Easter People who are joyful bearers of light and hope.  We are not servants of gloom and despair.  St. John Pau II said: “Do not abandon yourselves to despair.  We are Easter People and Halleluiah is our song.”

A Grace-Filled and a Joyful Easter to all…
