Recognizing that this is a most unusual time in how we are celebrating the Easter Triduum, I, with Fathers Joseph and Orlando, have agreed to observe the Easter Vigil on Saturday separately according to language and culture. In a time when we want for the people of the parish to be nourished spiritually on this the most holiest of nights, we judged it important that our people would be able to celebrate in the language they are most comfortable in understanding and receiving some spiritual enrichment and church connections.
If you should want the Holy Water, please come to the original church on Easter Sunday, bring ONE container, sanitize the handle after you are done, and then proceed out to the Sacristy doors.
May you discover the blessings that come with the Easter Season and know the hope in which all are called into as those who believe in Christ’s resurrection.
Blessings to you, Fr. Bill.

The passionate love of Jesus
The word “passion” has powerful implications. Theologically, we use it to describe the suffering love that Jesus endured for each of us when he was beaten, mocked and crucified as he willingly took onto himself the punishment and destructive forces of our sins.
The world counterfeits the word “passion” by applying it to strong feelings of romantic, even lustful, attraction.
We also use this word to refer to a strong motivation to do something that we enjoy or greatly care about, and this is why we can say that Jesus cared “passionately” about us while enduring The Passion.
The strong love that Jesus exhibited in his ministry and on Good Friday is a lesson on what it means to have “compassion” for others. We walk with them in their sufferings; we “suffer with” them. This is passionate love in its holiest form.
Read the scriptures for Passion Sunday with an eye on how they reveal Jesus’ passionate love for you.
See yourself in the passion of the people who enthusiastically welcomed Jesus as well as in those who rejected and denied him.
Consider how much compassion Jesus must have felt for you when he subjected himself to the excruciating pains of his final hours. He did this for you despite how much you’ve hurt him through any lack of compassion for others. Rejoice is his passionate love for you! This will empower you to repent and grow stronger in holy love for others.
