Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; whose sins you
shall retain they shall be held back. It is easier to hear these words
simply as text for the sacrament of reconciliation for that is what the priest
does.
But Jesus addressed these words to me. Who needs my
forgiveness? Whom do I hold back by refusing to extend mercy? Who is
holding me back?

My dear Parishioners,
Today is the wonderful feast day of Divine Mercy
Sunday. This is a recent feast day for the Church,
instituted by John Paul II before his death. With this
special holiday, the former Pope honored Saint
Faustina, a religious sister who had visions of Jesus
showing us his divine mercy. She often quoted verses
16:16 in Matthew's Gospel where we understand more
fully the
mystery
of Jesus
Christ,
our
Savior. Matthew writes, "You are the Messiah,
the Son of the Living God." These words by the
evangelist identify for us Jesus as our Messiah, the
one who came to save us. He is infinite, merciful and
ineffable. Jesus came as a poor child in a manager in
Bethlehem and walked the Stations of the Cross in
Jerusalem where he was tortured and suffered and
died. We were saved by his divine mercy by his death
on the Cross. For all of us who believe and those
plagued by doubt, we need to remember these words
of Simon Peter about Jesus, the Messiah. We should
never be afraid to welcome him into our heart. He is
the one who knows what is deep inside of our
hearts. He alone knows it. If at times we are filled
with doubt and despair because of events in our
lives, we should know that we can always turn to
God. He is merciful and forgives our sins. We just
need to celebrate that wonderful sacrament called
Reconciliation in order to walk with God anew and
refreshed.
His mercy is abundant and lasts
forever. So, today in a very special way we worship
a God who loves us and always has mercy on us. May
God bless you and your family!!!
Long live our
Merciful Lord!
To thank all Parish Volunteers, we are planning our Annual
Appreciation Party. It will be on SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 7PM.

RESPECT LIFE
“A clean heart create for me, O God, and a steadfast spirit renew within me.”
Psalm 51:12
In a recent article for the National Organization for Marriage, Brian Brown spoke of the
steadfast spirit and determination of John Quincy Adams to end slavery in America.
When questioned about his perseverance against the evil of slavery, Mr. Adams replied,
“Duty is ours, results are Gods.” How does one realize, accept his duty and then have
the energy to accomplish it? In articles in the March 15, 2015 issue of Our Sunday Visitor
both Pope Francis and Archbishop Chaput ask us to remember the Christians suffering
nightmarish persecution and death at the hands of ISIS throughout the Middle East.
Christians are dying in 2015 because they refuse to deny their faith in Christ. To
experience spiritual growth and strength, the Pope and Archbishop ask us to read
Scripture daily and learn the truths of the Catholic faith. We live in a country abundantly
blessed with riches and freedoms--limiting our texting, giving up chocolate chip cookies,
being nice to people we disagree with and donating the money we might spend on a night
at the movies to the poor are considered sacrifices for Lent. To attain purity of heart and
a steadfast spirit to defeat evil and work for the common good--Lent has to be more.
PA Senate Bill 549 is legislation introduced in the PA State Senate to legalize
assisted suicide in PA. Please contact Pro-life members of the Senate Judiciary
Committee—urge them to oppose Senate Bill 549, the assisted suicide bill will harm
people with disabilities and the frail elderly. Assisted suicide is a gross distortion of
compassion. Visit www.paprolife.org or call 717-541-0034 for more information.

FOR THE MONTH OF MAY
During the month of May, the priests of the
Archdiocese observe the anniversary of their
priestly ordination.
Our parish family offers
their prayers and congratulations to the priests
who serve St. Patrick’s and the people of the
Archdiocese. We ask God to continue to bless their ministry, and
we thank them for their “YES”.
Pray for all priests, and for an increase of priestly vocations.
DISCIPLES IN MISSION

Study using the Loyola Press series Six Weeks with the

New Parish Position – Recently, we have established a
new full time position within the parish for a Director of Religious
Education. This position was created in order to meet the
growing needs within our diverse bilingual religious community of
CCD students, teachers, and parents. We are currently looking
for someone to fill the new position. We appreciate the many
years of service Maryann Mitchell has provided to the parish as
the Coordinator of Religious Education. We also appreciate her
willingness to continue in her current position until the end of the
current CCD school year.

Queridos hermanos:
Como siempre, después de la gran celebración de La Semana
Santa, la primera cosa que quiero hacer es darles las gracias a
todas aquellas personas que contribuyeron a estas festividades
tan sagradas. Gracias a todos que limpiaron, adornaron y
prepararon la iglesia, a todos que sirvieron durante las Liturgias,
cada uno según sus capacidades: cantando en el coro, sirviendo
como lectores, ministros de la comunión, mujeres, monaguillos, y
las personas que nos ayudaron a mantener orden y reverencia
en todos los eventos. Gracias también a todos que participaron
en el Vía Crucis de viernes santo. ¡Fue muy impactante!
Gracias también a las personas que prepararon a los recién
bautizados, confirmados, y los que recibieron su primera
comunión.
Y gracias a todos ustedes que presenciaron las liturgias del
Triduo Pascual. La participación activa de todos juntos es un
apoyo espiritual para cada uno de nosotros y nos ayuda a
recordar nuestra identidad más profunda como hijos de Dios,
discípulos de Jesucristo, salvados por su muerte y
resurrección. De verdad, estos días nos llenan con esperanza y
con la vida del ¡Espíritu Santo!
Que vivan plenamente estos 50 días de la Pascua!
