A reflection on the Gospel for the Fifth Sunday of Lent

I believe in death, that is part of life. I believe that we are born to die, that we may live more fully; born to die a little each day to selfishness, to pretence, and to sin. I believe we taste death in moments of loneliness and rejection, in moments of sorrow and disappointment, when we are afraid, lose courage, and give up, when we see our dreams broken, and every time we say goodbye. I believe, too, that we are dying before our time when we live in bitterness, in hatred, and in isolation. I believe that each day we are creating our own death by the way we live. To those who believe in Christ, death is a gateway to eternal life.


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del quinto domingo de Cuaresma

Yo creo que la muerte es parte de la vida. Creo que nacemos para morir, para que podamos vivir más plenamente; nacemos para morir un poco cada día al egoísmo, a la pretención y al pecado. Creo que saboreamos la muerte en momentos de soledad y rechazo, en momentos de tristeza y frustraciones, cuando tenemos miedo, perdemos el valor y nos damos por vencidos, cuando nuestros sueños se ropen, y cada vez que decimos adiós. Creo también, que estamos muriendo antes de tiempo cuando vivimos con rencor, con odio y cuando nos mantenemos aislados. Creo que cada día estamos creando nuestra propia muerte por la forma en que vivimos. Para aquellos que creen en Cristo, la muerte es una puerta de entrada a la vida eterna.


This coming Tuesday, April 4th we are having a Communal Penance Service, (Bilingual) beginning at 7:00 pm. Don’t miss this special opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation at this special time if you have not done so yet.

Este martes 4 de abril tendremos un servicio de penitencia comunal (bilingüe) comenzando a las 7:00 pm. No pierda esta oportunidad para celebrar el sacramento de reconciliación en este tiempo especial si todavia no la ha hecho.

On Tuesday in Holy Week, April 11th, the Archbishop Niederauer will celebrate the annual Chrism Mass at the Cathedral in San Francisco at 5:30 p.m. At this Mass, the Archbishop will bless the sacred oils, which will be used in Sacramental celebrations in all of the Parishes during the year. All of the priests of the Archdiocese are expected to be present for this special Mass, when the priests also make a renewal of their priestly promises. Fr. Rene and Fr. Nicasio are hoping to participate or concelebrate at this Mass. And so here at St. Bruno’s, because of this we are canceling our 6:00 pm Mass on this day, that is on Tuesday April 11th. All parishioners are specially invited to celebrate the Mass at the Cathedral at 5:30 pm. We will be most happy to see you.

El martes 11 de abril en semana santa el Arzobispo Niederauer celebrará la misa anual “Chrism “ en la catedral de San Francisico a las 5:30 pm. En esta Misa los aceites sagrados que se usan en celebraciones sacramentales en todas las iglesias durante el año serán bendecidos por el Arzobispo. Todos los sacerdotes de la Arquidiócesis deben estar presentes para esta misa especial, en la cual todos los sacerdotes renuevan su promesa sacerdotal. Y el Padre René y el Padre Nicasio esperan poder participar o concelebrar en esta misa. Entonces aquí en San Bruno cancelaremos nuestra misa diaria de 6:00 pm el martes 11 de abril. Todos los feligreses están invitados a celebrar la misa en la catedral a las 5:30 p.m. Nos dara mucho gusto verles.
