An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love Thee above all things, and I desire Thee in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou wert already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee.
Prayer during the Corona virus threat
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Reflection for Easter Sunday
Reflection for 4 April 2021
Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord
Mass of the Day
Fr. Jose Geronimo Herrera
I read somewhere that in the early church the Christians would greet each other by saying: “He is risen” and the response would be “He is risen indeed.” Today, as we once again recall the event that transformed the world, we proclaim that “on the third day” Jesus rose from the dead! The Gospel for the Mass of the day (On Easter Sunday there are several different Masses that may be celebrated: The Easter Vigil [on Saturday night] and then the Mass at morning followed by the Mass of the Day.) In the Third Mass, called the Mass of the Day, we listen to the Gospel of St. John as he recalls the events of that Easter morning. Peter and John run to the tomb after Mary Magdalen informs them that the body of the Lord was missing. John lets Peter go in first as he is the prince of the apostles, and then when John does enter, John tells us that he “saw and believed.” (Jn 20: 4-8) What did he see? He saw the empty tomb and the shroud that had covered the body of the Lord. Some scholars have speculated, based on the Shroud of Turin, that the shroud in the tomb was laying as if there was still a body in it, but there was no body. As if the body had simply passed through the linen in the same way that the Gospels tell us that Jesus came through the locked door in the upper room after the resurrection. In the same way as the famous mystic, Mary of Agrada, says Jesus passed through the womb of his mother Mary into the world yet she remained a virgin after as before the birth. Like how light passes through a window yet leaves the window intact. Just so, the risen Jesus wants to penetrate the deepest recesses of our hearts and bring them to new life. To make us new again. This easter, let us with John, see and believe for he is risen indeed!
Reflexión para el 4 de abril de 2021
Domingo de resurrección del Señor
Misa del Día
José Gerónimo Herrera
Leí en algún lugar que en la iglesia primitiva los cristianos se saludaban diciendo: "Él ha resucitado" y la respuesta era "Él está resucitado de hecho". Hoy, recordamos una vez más el acontecimiento que transformó el mundo, proclamamos que “al tercer día” Jesús realmente resucito de entre los muertos. El Evangelio para la misa del día (El Domingo de Pascua hay varias misas diferentes que se pueden celebrar: La Vigilia pascual [el sábado por la noche] y luego la misa por la mañana seguida de la Misa del Día.) En la Tercera Misa, llamada ‘misa del día’, escuchamos el Evangelio de San Juan mientras recuerda los acontecimientos de aquella mañana de Pascua. Pedro y Juan corren a la tumba después de que María Magdalena les informa que el cuerpo del Señor había desaparecido. Juan deja entrar a Pedro primero, ya que es el príncipe de los apóstoles, y luego, cuando Juan entra, Juan nos dice que “vió y creyó". (Jn 20: 4-8) ¿Qué es lo que vio? Vio la tumba vacía y el sudario que había cubierto el cuerpo del Señor. Algunos eruditos han especulado, basándose en el Sudario de Turín, que el sudario en la tumba estaba tendido como si todavía hubiera un cuerpo en ella, pero no había cuerpo. Como si el cuerpo simplemente hubiera pasado por el sudario de la misma manera que los Evangelios nos dicen que Jesús entró por la puerta cerrada en el cenáculo después de la resurrección. De la misma manera que la famosa mística, María de Agrada, dice que Jesús pasó por el vientre de su madre María al mundo, su virginidad intacta después como antes del nacimiento. Al igual que la forma en que la luz pasa a través de una ventana, pero deja la ventana intacta. Así, Jesús resucitado quiere penetrar en el recinto más profundo de nuestro corazón y llevarlos a una nueva vida. Para hacernos nuevos otra vez. ¡Esta Semana Santa, vamos con Juan al sepulcro vacío y veamos y creamos que Jesús está resucitado!
