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.

     Our society today has the tendency of measuring the dignity of man by what man possesses. Our economic standards would even push us to possess more and even more. And seemingly, to be selfish is to get rich and to get rich one should be selfish. And like in our story about the monkey, man of today has a lot of monkey business! I am not saying, “man is a monkey” – not at all! But man has the tendency to posses, like the monkey in the story – possess “nuts” but does not know and does not like to let go. To use the language of Peter in the Gospel, “give up.”
    I have tried to research on the synonym of “give up” – and the word closest to how it is used by Peter in the Gospel is “sacrifice.” The word “sacrifice” comes from two Latin words. First, “sacrum” meaning “Sacred, Holy.” And the second, “facere” – meaning “to do.” Sacrifice therefore etymologically means, “to do what leads to the sacred, to do what leads to be holy.” And so, when you sacrifice something (like your money – when you give to the offertory or the diocesan appeal “Ohana in Christ” or to our Building Fund) and even someone (like you heard Peter who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands) – do not sacrifice them because you do not like or love them. You do sacrifice because that leads you to the sacred and lead you to holiness to inherit eternal life.
    There is this story of a wise man was once approached by a wealthy man with a question, “Why is it that wealth and riches would make man unhappy when they are supposed to bring happiness? The wise man invited him to a window, “Tell me what you see through the transparent glass.” The reply, “Well, I see happy people and the beauty of the whole of creation.” And the wise man invited the wealthy man to another glass. The wise man said, “This is a mirror. Tell me, what do you see now?” And the man said, “I just see myself.” And the wise man said, “That’s the difference, when the glass is coated with silver, you can only see yourself.” Our silver and gold change our perspective of life and such perspective could give us a selfish coloring in our mind and in our heart, if we are not careful.
    Jesus assures us in the Gospel today, “I say to you, there is no one who has given up . . . for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age . . . and eternal life to come.” Amen.
