Stewardship Sixth Sunday of Easter

Your Pledge Makes a Difference!

Jubilee Year of Mercy n formal documents, presenta ons, and homilies outlining the purpose of this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis explains that compassion and understanding for those in difficult situa ons is not only our individual responsibility, but something the whole Church officially needs to manifest. Today’s Acts of the Apostles reading presents a moving example of the early church doing precisely that. Prayerful openness to the Holy Spirit assures the assembly that they have not acted alone in discerning the correct resolu on: “It is the decision of the Holy Spirit and of us.” And they have chosen the compassionate response: “not to place on you any burden beyond these necessi es” (Acts 15:28). Yet how daringly crea ve—the Jewish majority sets aside lifelong rituals that establish spiritual iden ty and express covenant fidelity. How radically trus ul—the church affirms universally valid principles while respec ng uniquely local and personal situa ons. Exactly the grace Pope Francis prays this Jubilee Year will renew in today’s Church! —Peter Scagnelli, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

What was happening in the Sixth Century? When most people hear the name St. Augus ne, they think of the illustrious fi h century Bishop of Hippo in North Africa; but he is not the only major religious figure to bear the name. Another Augus ne was to be fundamental in the Chris aniza on of Britain. The date and place of his birth and his family background are not known, but by the late sixth century, Augus ne was the Prior of St. Andrew’s Benedic ne Abbey in Rome. Since the Abbot of this abbey was also the reigning Pope, Gregory I, Augus ne as Prior carried out the daily administra ve du es of the abbey. He was an educated man especially knowledgeable in the Scriptures. Pope Gregory knew Augus ne well, and trusted him implicitly.

The rela onship of trust between the two men may be the reason that Gregory appointed Augus ne to lead a new mission, known as the Gregorian Mission, into England for the purpose of conver ng King Aethelberht of Kent, and the Anglo-Saxon people. Chris anity was not new to the people of Britain. Missionaries had arrived in Britain in the fourth century while it was s ll part of the Roman Empire and were successful in spreading the faith. Rome withdrew its troops from Britain in 410 leaving the territory vulnerable to the invasion of Saxon Tribes. By the fall of Rome in the late 5th century, the Saxons had conquered most of eastern and southern Britain, destroying what remained of Roman culture, including civil and religious structure. Small enclaves of Chris ans remained, but it does not appear that they a empted to convert their conquerors, and the church in that region had li le support. The Saxons did not reach the west coast of Britain where Chris anity con nued to flourish, although somewhat disconnected from Rome, and primarily ruled by the Irish monasteries. King Aethelberht of Kent, who was a pagan, had married a Chris an princess named Bertha, daughter of the King of Paris and great granddaughter was Clovis I, the first Chris an Frankish king. The marriage was, of course, a poli cal alliance, and Bertha was intended to influence her husband toward Chris anity and toward peaceful coopera on with the Franks. She must have done well with this, as when Augus ne and his companions entered Kent, they did not meet with resistance from Aethelberht, who accepted bap sm and supported the cause of the missionary endeavor. Queen Bertha had the ruins of an old Roman era church in Canterbury renovated and made into her private chapel which she dedicated to St. Mar n de Tours. It is the oldest remaining church in the English speaking world. Queen Bertha, received a le er from Pope Gregory in 601 AD commending her for her faith, and a er her death later that year at age thirty-six, she was popularly acclaimed as a saint. Today, May 1, is St. Bertha’s feast day. Augus ne arrived in Canterbury, Kent, in 597, and was welcomed by Queen Bertha. The royal couple donated nearby land on which the Monastery of Saints Peter and Paul was constructed. Later the name was changed to the Monastery of St. Augus ne. Many of King Aethelberht’s subjects followed the example of their King and also converted to Chris anity. Thousands were bap zed in a special liturgy on Christmas day 597, some reports claiming that the number exceeded 10,000. By 598 Augustine was formally installed as Bishop of Canterbury. In 601 a cohort of missionaries arrived from Rome, bringing with them sacred vessels, vestments, and a palladium for Augustine along with the decree from Pope Gregory that Augustine was the Metropolitan Archbishop. He was instructed to select and consecrate twelve additional Bishops to serve in the Saxon areas of Britain. Augus ne of Canterbury died May 26, 604 AD, and was buried in the monastery he had built, though it was destroyed during the Protestant reforma on and his relics lost. Shortly a er his death he was acclaimed as a saint, with his feast day established as May 26. He is known as the Apostle to the English. And so, the history of the Church con nues.

Ministerio Hispano Sexto Domingo de Pascua

Invitación a los Integrantes de Coros

Año Jubilar de la Misericordia

Se invita a todos los par cipantes de coros, para que anoten la fecha en sus calendarios y par cipen del día de formación Diocesana. Cuando: 7 de mayo Hora: 9:30 a.m. a 3 p.m. Lugar: Catedral de Cristo Costo: $15.00 dólares, no incluye almuerzo Conferencistas: Reverendo Juan Navarro y Doctor Ricardo Soto. Para más información pueden ver la página de Internet www.rcbo.org/office-for-worship o llamar al número telefónico (714) 282-3040

En documentos oficiales, presentaciones y homilías que delinean el propósito del Año Jubilar de la Misericordia, el Papa Francisco explica que la compasión y la comprensión por aquellas personas en situaciones di ciles no es solamente nuestra responsabilidad personal, sino algo que toda la Iglesia oficialmente necesita manifestarse. Hoy el texto de los Hechos de los Apóstoles presenta un ejemplo conmovedor de la Iglesia de los primeros siglos haciendo precisamente eso. El comienzo de una oración al Espíritu Santo asegura a la asamblea que ellos no actuaron solos discerniendo la decisión correcta: “Porque pareció bien al Espíritu Santo y a nosotros”. Y ellos ya eligieron una respuesta compasiva: “no imponerles mayor carga que estas cosas esenciales” (Hechos 15:28). Sin embargo, que crea vamente, la mayoría judía puso a un lado los rituales establecidos de toda la vida que establecían iden dad y expresaban fidelidad a la alianza. Que confianza tan fundamental, la comunidad afirma principios validos universalmente y al mismo empo respeta situaciones personales y par culares. ¡Exactamente la gracia por la que el Papa Francisco ora que este Año Jubilar renueve a la Iglesia de hoy! —Peter Scagnelli, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.
