Effective Easter Sunday, April 4 (or as of the Easter Vigil, April 3), I am ending the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass, which has been in effect since mid-March, 2020. However, anyone who is sick, may have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, or who has a health condition that would endanger themselves or others by being present in church, continues to be dispensed.
       Please click on the link below to read the Bishop's Memorandum in its entirety.

Clergy Page READ MORE week of May 9, 2021
 
      This teaching of Jesus about love is constant and consistent.  He could easily preach about it because the message has been sourced out from His own relationship and experience: “As the Father loves me, so I also love you.”  Jesus is giving us the model of a loving relationship, His own relationship with the Father.  And yet it is also important to recognize that this loving relationship was not limited with that of the Father.  The extension of that love can be drawn in the Gospel this Sunday taken from the Gospel of John.  John is called “the beloved” because of the love of Jesus to him.  Thinkers appropriately called the Gospel of John as “the Gospel of love” because of its content and expressions.  Consider reading the Second Reading this Sunday from the First Letter of John.  John is fittingly called “the beloved” because of his own experience of being loved by Jesus and wrote his gospel in the name of love.  Do you have a story to tell about being loved by Jesus?
       While it is important to recognize the love of Jesus and His relationship with the Father, let us not forget what He is requiring from us: “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.”  In the image of the vine and the branches where the branches have to remain into the vine to bear fruit that we heard last Sunday, Jesus again uses the expression “remain” and this time in His love.  To live and to bear fruit, we have to keep His commandments.  He showed His obedience to the Father, He is calling us to be obedient to Him.  Do you have a story to tell about being obedient to the commandments of Jesus?
       To answer the significance of this Gospel on this Easter time, let us draw the answer from this: “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”  This Gospel is significant this Easter season because Jesus laid down His life for you and for me.  The other Sunday, we heard about the Good Shepherd, who is willing to lay down his life for his sheep.  His expression in the Gospel today is that is calling us now His friends.  But remember He said, “You are my friends if you do what I command you.”  Let us show Him our friendship by listening to what He is asking us to do, love one another as I love you.  Do you have a story to tell about your friendship with Jesus?
       This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day.  Aside from Jesus, have you ever thought of the first person who put her everything online, even her own life, in order for you to have life?  Who is that person again who laid down her life for you?  So, today make sure you thank that person you call “mother” – because of her love to you and because she has chosen life for you!  I always remember what once said to me, “A mother is a mother still, the greatest gift alive.”  Let us develop a friendship with our own mother.
       Have you ever thought that we also call the Church, mother?  So, we have the expression, Holy Mother the Church.  Like our biological or legal mothers who take care and protect their children, Mother the Church gathers us into her fold to take care and protect us.  In developing a friendship, is it too much if, as her children, we also in turn take care and protect our Mother the Church?  Do you have a story to tell about your love of your Mother the Church?
       In the spirit of stewardship, let us love and take care and protect our particular Church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.  This is our parish.  We are her children.  At the near end of the Gospel this Sunday Jesus said, “It was not you who chose you me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.”  Let us develop a story to tell about being blessed as children of this parish!
       One such blessing was received last Sunday with the celebration of the Confirmation and the First Communion of eighteen (18) young people in our parish.  We thank the parents and sponsors who accompanied these young people to receive their blessings.  I thank our catechists who prepared well these young people.  The Bishop expressed his appreciation of our wellprepared young people and a meaningful celebration of the liturgy in the parish.  Thank you to one and all.
