5/22/22 - Jesus Promises to Send the Holy Spirit - Cycle C
In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus promises his disciples that he will send the Holy Spirit after he was gone. They would never be alone; the Holy Spirit would teach them. God the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, would come to them and guide them in what they needed to do to continue his teachings.
Jesus’ promise is still with us today. The Holy Spirit is always working with us. He inspires all of us to do what is right, learn the truth, and share our faith. He is the perfect teacher and knows what we need to learn and the best way to teach it to us.
As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other these questions.
What is the Holy Spirit teaching you? How does the Holy Spirit teach you?
Family Prayer: Come Holy Spirit, help us to learn what God needs us to know. Amen.

May 22, 2022- Sixth Sunday of Easter
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
The Gospel of this Sunday is inviting us to participate in the dynamic of divine love, love that we perceive with our human hearts as we do with perceiving the human love. Jesus said: “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him” (John 14:23).
In human love we hold on to the words of love told to us by the one we love, and those words continue to stir in us more love, and it happens over and over again, every time we remember the words of love. How much more do the words of Jesus do for us, that are 100% full of love and life from God. If we give those words of Jesus our total trust, then they will transform us by empowering us from within with the power of divine love.
As experience of human love puts a smile on our face, how much more joy will the experience of divine love bring us. This dynamic of our empowerment coming from internal experience needs to be protected from our experience of troubles, sadness, cultural bombardment of ideas and news. All those negative experiences have power to become dominant in our human heart and mind and so creating in us unhappiness, sadness and depression. We need to monitor what feeds our heart, our soul. It could be the social media that often create our dependence of our need to follow and to control what is there in the web, instead of our need for peace, integrity and our own independence of life, over the life observed out there in virtual world.
5/22/22 - Sexto Domingo de Pascua
Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,
El Evangelio de este domingo nos está invitando a participar en la dinámica del amor divino, amor que percibimos con nuestro corazón humano como percibimos el amor humano. Jesús dijo: “Si alguien me ama, guardará mi Palabra, y mi Padre lo amará, y vendremos a él y haremos morada con él”.
En el amor humano nos aferramos a las palabras de amor que nos dice aquel a quien amamos, y esas palabras siguen suscitando en nosotros más amor, y sucede una y otra vez, cada vez que recordamos las palabras de amor. Cuánto más hacen por nosotros las palabras de Jesús, que son 100% llenas de amor y vida de Dios. Si confiamos totalmente en esas palabras de Jesús, entonces nos transformarán al empoderarnos desde adentro con el poder del amor divino.
Así como la experiencia del amor humano dibuja una sonrisa en nuestro rostro, cuánta más alegría nos traerá la experiencia del amor divino. Esta dinámica de nuestro empoderamiento proveniente de la experiencia interna necesita ser protegida de nuestra experiencia de problemas, tristezas, bombardeo cultural de ideas y noticias. Todas esas experiencias negativas tienen el poder de volverse dominantes en nuestro corazón y mente humanos y así crearnos infelicidad, tristeza y depresión. Necesitamos monitorear lo que alimenta nuestro corazón, nuestra alma. Podrían ser las redes sociales las que a menudo crean nuestra dependencia de nuestra necesidad de seguir y controlar lo que hay en la web, en lugar de nuestra necesidad de paz, integridad y nuestra propia independencia de vida, sobre la vida observada en el mundo virtual. .
