PASTOR’S
MESSAGE
PASTOR’S
MESSAGE
3 3
What a joy and gift from our heavenly Father to the family of Ss Peter and Paul for our children and
youth who are receiving the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation. At the time of the
First Communion the Lord comes to the inner of our souls to transform us to be like Him, this transformation includes the family of the child who joins in receiving the Eucharist. What a beautiful sign
when the whole family receives communion during the Mass. For those who receive the Sacrament
of Confirmation last Friday at St. Joseph the Worker, they are called to be witnesses of Christ’s resurrection. In the same way that there was a transformation in the life of the apostles at Pentecost, also
there will be a transformation in the life of these young men and women who received this sacrament, especially if
they open their heart and accept Jesus to be their teacher and Master as the apostles did. Many blessings to all children
and youth, to their families and those who prepare our children for these great sacraments. May we all continue to
grow in love an devotion to the Holy Mass.
Fr. Mariano Varela, IVE

Prayer
O Holy spirit of God;
Take me as Your disciple.
Guide me, illuminate me,
Sanctify me.
Bind my hands,
That they may do no evil.
Cover my eyes,
That they may see it no
more.
Sanctify my heart,
That evil may not dwell
within me.
You are my God.
You are my guide.
Whatsoever You forbid me,
I will renounce.
And whatsoever You
commend me,
In Your strength I will do.
Lead me then
Unto the fullness of Your
truth.
Amen.

In Our Generosity
PHÚC ÂM: Ga 15, 1-8
"Ai ở trong Thầy và Thầy ở
trong người ấy, kẻ ấy sinh nhiều trái". Tin M ng Chúa
Giêsu Kitô theo Thánh Gioan.
Khi ấy, Chúa Giêsu phán cùng các môn đệ rằng: "Thầy
là cây nho thật, và Cha Thầy là người trồng nho. Nhành
nào trong Thầy không sinh trái thì Người chặt đi, còn
nhành nào sinh trái thì Người tỉa sạch để nó sai trái hơn.
Các con đã được tỉa sạch nhờ lời Thầy đã nói với các
con. Các con ở trong Thầy, và Thầy ở trong các con.
Cũng như nhành nho tự nó không thể sinh trái được, nếu
không dính liền với cây nho; các con cũng vậy, nếu
không ở trong Thầy.
"Thầy là cây nho, các con là nhành. Ai ở trong Thầy và
Thầy ở trong người ấy, kẻ ấy sẽ sinh nhiều trái, vì không
có Thầy, các con không thể làm được gì. Ai không ở
trong Thầy, thì bị vứt ra ngoài như ngành nho, và sẽ khô
héo, người ta sẽ thu lại, quăng vào lửa cho nó cháy đi.
Nếu các con ở trong Thầy, và lời Thầy ở trong các con,
thì các con muốn gì cứ xin, và sẽ được. Đây là điều làm
Cha Thầy được vinh hiển là các con sinh nhiều trái, và
như thế các con trở nên môn đệ của Thầy". Đó là lời
Chúa.
Funeral Lunches
If you would like to help serve funeral lunches during
the month of May please call Sharon Knapp at 3456352 or JoAnn Vetter at 625-2497.
For Graduating High School Students
and Their Parents
Students, stay Connected with your Catholic Faith when
you go off to College. The NEWMAN CONNECTION
High School Outreach Program helps you connect with
your local Catholic College Campus Ministry. When
students are entered into the NEWMAN CONNECTION
database, their information will automatically be sent to
the local Catholic Campus Ministry (Newman Center or
local Catholic Parish’s college youth group when there is
not a Newman Center on Campus). The Campus Minister can then contact the student to invite them to their
activities on Campus. The NEWMAN CONNECTION
has been a great help in keeping our students connected
to their Catholic Faith during their College years.
If you are a graduating High School Student or parent
thereof, please stay connected to your Catholic campus
ministry by contacting Frank Brandt at 507-327-8889 or
fxbrandt@gmail.com with the student’s name and choice
of College /University (with location) that they will be
attending this fall. The NEWMAN CONNECTION is a
service of the local Serra Club.

Whatever you do, work at it with

V DOMINGO DE PASCUA
3 DE MAYO 2015
Mayo es el mes de Nuestra Señora
Mayo es el mes de las flores, de la primavera. Muchas
familias esperan este mes para
celebrar la fiesta por la recepción de algún sacramento de un
familiar. También, Mayo es el
mes en el que todos recuerdan a
su mamá (el famoso 10 de Mayo) y las flores son el regalo
más frecuente de los hijos para
agasajar a quien les dio la vida.
PARA DAR FRUTO
“Hijos míos: No amemos solamente de palabra; amemos de verdad y con las obras”. Las palabras de Juan nos
llegan hoy cuando el pasaje del Evangelio nos presenta
con la gran imagen del viñedo y las ramas. Jesús usa la
imagen como un aviso a los que se han empezado a distanciar de la senda del Señor. Esto sucede cuando amamos a Dios y a otros “con palabras o dichos” y no con “la
verdad y las obras”. ¿Qué significa para nosotros
“permanecer en Cristo”? El Señor nos da un ejemplo con
la extensión de la metáfora. Si permanecemos en él, daremos mucho fruto. Como ramas sacamos la fuerza de
Cristo que es la viña. Esa fuerza nos facilita dar fruto –
hacer el trabajo de los verdaderos discípulos.

Por otro lado, todos saben que
este mes es el ideal para estar al
aire libre, rodeado de la belleza
natural de nuestros campos.
Precisamente por esto, porque
todo lo que nos rodea nos debe
recordar a nuestro Creador, este
mes se lo dedicamos a la más
delicada de todas sus creaturas: la santísima Virgen María, alma delicada que ofreció su vida al cuidado y servicio de Jesucristo, nuestro redentor.
Celebremos, invitando a nuestras fiestas a María, nuestra
dulce madre del Cielo.
¿Qué se acostumbra hacer este mes?
Recordar las apariciones de la Virgen. En Fátima, Portugal; en Lourdes, Francia y en el Tepeyac, México (La
Guadalupe) la Virgen entrega diversos mensajes, todos
relacionados con el amor que Ella nos tiene a nosotros,
sus hijos.
Reflexionar en las principales virtudes de la Virgen María.
María era una mujer de profunda vida de oración, vivía
siempre cerca de Dios. Era una mujer humilde, es decir,
sencilla; era generosa, se olvidaba de sí misma para darse
a los demás; tenía gran caridad, amaba y ayudaba a todos
por igual; era servicial, atendía a José y a Jesús con amor;
vivía con alegría; era paciente con su familia; sabía aceptar la voluntad de Dios en su vida.
Rezar en familia las oraciones especialmente dedicadas a
María. La Iglesia nos ofrece bellas oraciones como la del
Ángelus (que se acostumbra a rezar a mediodía), el Regina Caeli, la Consagración a María y el Rosario.
