St. Edward Catholic Church
Fourth Sunday of Lent
March 15, 2015
Early and Often
For us, Christ is everything. We begin
in each day in his presence. We are his
people, from many walks of life, and
from many nations and languages. We
adore the Lord, address him with the
psalms of our ancestors and enter the
sacred Liturgy, the source and summit
in our life in Christ. Through our
Catechetical programs we pass on the
faith both to adults and children, training
in holiness which calls us to a Holy life
distinguished above all in the art of
prayer. Rising from prayer we minister
to the needs of those who ask our help,
with food and other assistance. We are
the people of St. Edward Catholic
Church in Newark, California. Christ is
everything. If you have a wound to heal,
he is the doctor; if you are in need of
help, he is strength; if you fear death, he
is life; if you desire Heaven, he is the
way; if you are in the darkness, he is
light. Blessed are they who hope in him!
Early and often did the LORD, the God of their fathers,
send his messengers to them,
for he had compassion on his people and his dwelling place.
But they mocked the messengers of God,
despised his warnings, and scoffed at his prophets,
From today’s first reading
“Early and often,” sometimes sounds like old-time
Chicago voting habits. In today’s first reading it describes
our God’s relentless pursuit of us in spite of mocked
messengers, despised warnings, and abused prophets.
God is faithful. In the end he sent his Son. God so loved
the world, he sent his only Son, but is the world ready to
listen? Nicodemus comes to him at night, afraid that me
might ruin his reputation. Later he speaks up for him in
the Sanhedrin and bears some abuse. Finally Nicodemus
provides for Jesus’ burial. Slowly but surely Nicodemus
comes to identify with Jesus.
There are two kinds of responses to Jesus and
his love. We may fear the dangerous world and develop
a fortress mentality, or we may join with him in his mission
to the world, never being upset by failure. God has come
to us from the beginning, and has often sent his
messengers to us to show us how much we are loved.
We are, with Nicodemus, slowly moving toward the light.
God sent his Son to love, not to condemn. We still often
condemn ourselves. Early and often, then, we must
resort to prayer, to speaking and doing the truth, and to
observing the Lenten practices. St. Gaspar provides the
encouragement for today that in spite of past failures we
can still hope in as merciful God.
Let us listen to St. Gaspar:
Those who seek The Lord lack nothing good. (Ps 34:10.)
Through the goodness of our most loving Father, we shall
indeed see in ourselves continuous miracles of grace. He

has loved and still loves us dearly. He tenderly shows us
his Sacred Heart as a sweet asylum for souls thirsting for
Jesus Christ. Could it be possible that we custodians and
dispensers of the heavenly treasurers be deprived of the
riches which adorned the daughters of Sion? Indeed,
neither the place where we live nor the insignia we wear
form the essentials of holiness. On the contrary, a holy
life, desire for perfection, thirst for the love of God,
confidence in him, willingness to bear cheerfully all
sacrifices for his sake, these are the qualities that make
us saints.

Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ
Bishop of Oakland
In the midst of the political complexity surrounding
immigration in this country I am very pleased that the
social service arm of our diocese, Catholic Charities of
the East Bay (CCEB), is fully engaged. They have
attorneys, law students, accredited paralegals, teachers
and counselors providing legal, resettlement and
employment services to very needy refugees and
immigrants, our neighbors. On Ash Wednesday I was
happy to hear their fine work highlighted on a national
NPR news broadcast. Listen to that here. Parishes can
reach out to CCEB to connect parishioners who need
legal help by calling Maciel Jacques, Legal Services
Program Coordinator, at (510) 768-3137. Cardinal Sean
O’Malley is co-chair of the US Bishops’ Committee on
Domestic Justice and Human Development. He reminds
us, “Immigration is not primarily a political problem, but
rather a deeply human and profoundly moral challenge
facing our nation.” Catholic social services provide one
of the refuges for those grappling with these very human
challenges. These challenges are world-wide. Speaking
on the Italian island of Lampedusa, at the borders of
Europe, Pope Francis said “We have lost a sense of
responsibility for our brothers and sisters. We have fallen
into the hypocrisy of the Priest and the Levite whom
Jesus described in the parable of the Good Samaritan:
we see our brother half dead on the side of the road and
perhaps we say to ourselves, ‘Poor soul’ and then go our
way.” His words resonate in our part of the world as well.
I invite all to join voices with the California bishops: “We
call on Congress and the President to work together
toward a more comprehensive response to the
humanitarian crisis of a broken immigration system. We
will work with the California Congressional delegation and
3 the President to accomplish that goal.”
Live the Word of God!

Los católicos en general y los latinoamericanos en
particular, somos muy dados al uso de imágenes y
símbolos religiosos para acercarnos a Dios o para
sentirnos más cerca de él. En realidad el cristianismo
entero es así, gracias a la encarnación del Hijo de
Dios. Hay quienes critican el uso de imágenes, pero
recordemos que Jesús usó imágenes para explicar
cómo es Dios. En el Evangelio de Juan (3:14) Jesús
recuerda que Moisés había hecho uso de imágenes
para sanar a los hebreos.
En Números 21:4-9 Dios le pide a Moisés que
haga una serpiente de bronce y la levante en alto de
tal forma que los hebreos puedan verla. Muchos de
ellos habían sido mordidos por serpientes en el
desierto y al ver la imagen de bronce sanaban, gracias
a Dios. El pueblo de Israel se quedó con la imagen. No
obstante, con el paso del tiempo olvidaron que era
sólo una imagen y comenzaron a adorarla hasta que el
rey Ezequías se vio en la necesidad de destruirla (2
Reyes 18:4). Las imágenes pueden ser útiles para
recordarnos la presencia y misericordia de Dios, pero
no permitamos que se conviertan en ídolos.

Missa Domingo IV Da Quaresma
COMENTÁRIO Continuamos neste VI domingo da
Páscoa a leitura do cap. 14 do Evangelho de João, um
texto singular onde é mostrada a cara da comunidade
joanina que vive a experiência da fé, encontrando cada
vez mais com maior clareza a própria identidade dentro
do vasto mundo no qual se encontra inserida e, às vezes,
perdida diante das dificuldades que deve enfrentar, em
particular, uma comunidade que é chamada a viver uma
lógica que diante da qual reagiram negativamente os
chefes da época e as autoridades religiosas, a saber, a
lógica da cruz.
Mas esta pequena comunidade recebe um mandamento
muito forte do Senhor, sobre o qual se baseia toda a sua
vida e identidade: “Não se perturbe o vosso coração.
Tendes fé em Deus, tende fé em mim também”. A fé
liberta o homem do medo radical que este prova na
experiência cotidiana da própria fragilidade: é uma coisa
cada vez mais evidente como nós naturalmente
buscamos na experiência religiosa, nas suas formas mais
diversas, um refúgio para os nossos “turbamentos”. E, a
novidade cristã é que a sua coragem, “escandalizou” os
chefes políticos e religiosos: “tendes fé em Deus, tende fé
em mim”, diz o Senhor aos seus discípulos. “Ele propõe
um duplo mandamento sobre a fé: ter fé em Deus e ter fé
em Jesus... Não são dois atos separados, mas um único
ato de fé” (Bento XVI).
Os discípulos sentem a dor da separação e se perguntam
como serão as coisas depois da partida de Jesus. Nós
também na nossa caminhada de relação pessoal com o
Senhor, podemos muitas vezes senti-lo longe,
inalcançável. Mas Jesus demonstra que ele não
abandona nunca os seus. Ele nunca nos abandonará. No
Evangelho deste domingo, ele anuncia a vinda de um
auxílio, um defensor, um consolador, um advogado, o
paráclito, o Espírito de Verdade (14,15-17) e a sua
própria vinda (14,18-21). E, por fim, declara que todos os
ensinamentos que ele deu até aquele momento nunca
serão ultrapassados, mas serão válidos para sempre.
Somente quem se deixa guiar por seus mandamentos
pode receber o Espírito Santo e se abrir ao amor de
Jesus e do Pai.
A primeira consideração a ser levada em conta na leitura
deste texto é que no seu início e no seu final Jesus fala
respectivamente do amor por ele e da necessidade de
seguir os seus mandamentos. Na dor que os discípulos
sentem por separar-se de Jesus, revela-se o amor deles
por ele. Por isso, se querem demonstrar que este
sentimento é verdadeiro, este desejo de tê-lo presente
sempre, deverão fazê-lo, mantendo esta comunhão
através da observância dos seus mandamentos.
Observar os mandamentos significa acolher com fé o
conjunto da sua Palavra (14,23-24), sendo guiado por
ela. Jesus permanece presente na sua palavra e no seu
chamamento. Quem se deixa guiar por esses, segue
Jesus, permanece unido a ele e demonstra assim o seu
amor por ele. Pois o amor não consiste em palavras,
sentimentos ou recordações, mas em dar ouvidos,
acreditar e em atos.
Na verdade, a quem permanece unido a Jesus desta
forma, Deus concede o Espírito Santo como novo
socorro, a pedido de Jesus. Até agora, os discípulos
sempre contaram com a ajuda de Jesus, com a sua
proteção, o seu cuidado, a sua guia, a sua força. Em
nenhum momento, foram deixados de lado ou rejeitados
por Jesus, sempre o tiveram presente. Agora que Jesus
vai embora, os discípulos começam a sentir medo de
ficar sozinhos, desamparados, mas Jesus promete um
outro auxílio: o Pai lhes dará o Espírito Santo.
