Bishop Larry Silva announces the "Resumption of Sunday Mass Obligation":
 
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.

Vaccine
"As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, this new year brings some hope in controlling the virus through vaccines. The State of Hawaii vaccination plan is being implemented at this time. You may have some moral or ethical concerns regarding the potential contents (compromised cell lines/fetal cells) of these vaccines in relation to our Catholic teaching and faith."  Click on the link below to read the Bishop's letter in its entirety.

       The middle part of the gospel teaches us the second fundamental content of our catechism about Jesus: The Paschal Mystery.  Jesus in this gospel pericope predicted His passion, death and resurrection.  This is the paschal mystery that we profess in our faith.  In the Gospel today, this mystery may not have been fully understood by Peter.  So, he got the worst rebuked when he was called “Satan” by Jesus.  The concept of messiah for Peter was determined by the human expectations of a political or even a military liberator.  Jesus came as the Messiah in the name of God as we acclaim “Through Him, with Him and in Him”.
      And the last part of the gospel leads us to the third fundamental content of our catechism, that is, the teaching of Jesus about discipleship, requiring us to follow Him by carrying our cross!  Who among us would volunteer to suffer and to suffer like Jesus?  Jesus gave us the example how to embrace suffering by dying on the cross.  The deeper meaning of His sacrifice on the cross established the fundamental truth that on the third day, He will rise again.
      Let us go back to Mount Calvary, for now, by stretching our imagination.  There we see the image of Jesus on the cross.  Let us find our hope in the cross of Jesus because that is the beginning and the greatest symbol of His promise of life eternal.  On Mount Calvary, we can also recognize two other men who were crucified on both sides of Jesus.  There was a cross on His right side that reminds us of our wrongdoings.  Just like the thief on that cross, may we given the opportunity to be forgiven.  There was also a cross on the left side of Jesus that should remind us that we should not remain callous when given the chance to repent.  For Jesus, He was crucified because of our wrongdoings.  Look around and there is so much suffering.  Why?  It is because of our own wrongdoings and the wrongdoings of our fellowmen.
       When written, the cross is made up of a vertical line and a horizontal line.  The vertical line defines our relationship with God.  The horizontal line defines our relationship with our fellowmen.  Let us establish first our relationship with God and then with our fellowmen.  In order that the cross becomes a “plus factor” (+), let us always start with the vertical line, which stands for “I”, not only to define ourselves, but ultimately pointing up to God.  Without the vertical line on the cross, it becomes a “minus or a subtraction sign” (-).  And so, let us not remove Jesus in our life because once He is removed in our life, we become a “negative sign.”
      Let us pray that we have the strength and courage to embrace our sacrifices with the love of the Lord for our reward will be given to us according to His words: “whoever loses his life for my sake, and that of the gospel will save it.
 
Fr. Edmundo N. Barut, Jr.
