1 April 21, 2019 Easter Sunday ST. GABRIEL THE ARCHANGEL CATHOLIC CHURCH Stewardship Reflection on Readings ACTS 10:34A, 37-43; PS 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23; COL 3:1-4 or 1 COR 5:6B-8; JN 20:1-9 He is risen! He is truly risen! This is what the celebration of Easter is all about the truth that Jesus was crucified for our sins and three days later rose from the dead, conquering death once and for all. We know it s true, but this Easter Sunday, let s ask ourselves if we live as if it s true. Do we live as witnesses to the glorious reality of the Resurrection? A witness, of course, is one with first-hand knowledge. Our readings today focus not only on the Resurrection itself, but also on those who were witnesses to it. In the Gospel, St.John describes the very first witnesses to the empty tomb, Mary Magdalene, John ( the disciple whom Jesus loved ), and Peter. Each had an individual experience of the empty tomb. Each went up close to see for themselves what Jesus love had accomplished. How can we as Christian stewards all these years later see for ourselves and so become His witnesses? We see for ourselves when we prayerfully read the Scriptures knowing they are a living love letter from God with a message to each one of us. We see for ourselves each time we receive the precious Body and Blood of our Lord in the Eucharist. We see for ourselves when we experience His personal and healing power in our hearts during Reconciliation. We see for ourselves when we pour out our lives in loving service to those around us and experience the deep satisfaction that only comes when we are imitating our Savior. This Easter, resolve to live as if the saving power of the Resurrection is true. Experience Jesus for yourself every day from now on. You will be a powerful witness to the truth that He is risen! He is truly risen! PARISH OFFICE 8755 Scarborough Drive Colorado Springs, CO Hours: Monday-Friday 9:00 am-5:00 pm Phone: (719) Fax: (719) PARISH CLERGY Pastor, Fr.

5 MAKING A GOOD CONFESSION 1. Examine your conscience. 2. Be sincerely sorry for your sins. 3. Confess your sins to a priest. 4. Resolve to amend your life. 5. After your confession, do the penance the priest assigns. PROCEDURE IN THE CONFESSIONAL You say: Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been - (state the length of time) since my last confession. These are my sins. Then tell your mortal sins and the number of times committed. If you have no mortal sin to confess, then confess the venial sins you have committed since your last confession. When you have finished telling your sins, you should say: For these and all the sins of my past, I am truly sorry. The priest now gives the necessary advice, assigns your penance and asks you to say the Act of Contrition (in some form). Then wait and listen as the priest gives the absolution. Then say Thank you, Father, then leave the confessional and then perform the penance assigned by the priest. ACT OF CONTRITION O MY GOD, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell; but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen. St. Gabriel the Archangel 5 Colorado Springs, CO

6 An Easter Proclamation The hosts of heaven exult and sing aloud in mighty triumph! Let the earth be glad as glory alights and night reigns no more. Let the Church rejoice at the victory of her Lord and Master, Who paid the debt of Adam, Who frees those doomed to die, Who heals the broken-hearted and bind up their wounds, Who forgives the sinner and raises up the lowly, Who destroys death forever, Whose Kingdom shall have no end. God our Father, eternal is your love for us! Christ the Son, in victory you reign! Holy Spirit, set the Easter fire ablaze in our hearts. Together you live and reign and ransom your people, one God forever and ever. Amen. SPIRITUAL COMMUNION When Should You Make an Act of Spiritual Communion? The most common occasion for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when we cannot fulfill our obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday or Holy Day of Obligation, whether because of illness or bad weather, or some other reason outside of our control. It is also good to make an Act of Spiritual Communion when we can attend Mass, but when something prevents us from receiving sacramental Communion that day say, a mortal sin that we know we have not had the opportunity to confess yet. But our Acts of Spiritual Communion do not need to be confined to those times. In an ideal world, it would be best to attend Mass and receive Communion every day, but we can't always do so. We can, however, always take 30 seconds or so to make an Act of Spiritual Communion. We can even do so multiple times a day even on days when we have been able to receive the Eucharist. Why would we do that? Because each Act of Spiritual Communion that we make increases our desire to receive sacramental Communion, and also helps us to avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Communion worthily.

7 EASTER OCTAVE Easter Sunday is not the end of our Easter celebration. After forty days of preparation with Lent, and the Easter Triduum, from Holy Thursday to Easter Sunday, it is easy to miss looking ahead on the Church s liturgical calendar. This is, after all, the climax of the Christian year with the celebration of the Passion, death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Catechism calls Easter the Feast of feasts and the Solemnity of solemnities. Yet, Easter Sunday is actually just the first day of the Easter Octave, the eight-day festal period, in which we continue to celebrate the momentous conclusion to the Paschal mystery and the economy of salvation played out in liturgical time. The eight days of the Easter Octave are a special time to celebrate the Lord s Resurrection and more deeply contemplate its mysteries. The Church punctuates the special importance of this feast by assigning it the highest liturgical ranking, that is, as a Privileged Octave of the First Order. This means each of the eight days is counted as a solemnity, the highest-ranking feast day, in which no other feast can be celebrated. It begins the fifty days of the Easter celebration to the feast of Pentecost, but these first eight days of the Easter Octave culminates with the second Sunday of Easter: Divine Mercy Sunday. It is entirely fitting that Divine Mercy Sunday is the culmination of the Easter Octave, for as St. Pope John Paul II stated in his Divine Mercy Sunday homily in 2001, Divine Mercy! This is the Easter gift that the Church receives from the risen Christ and offers to humanity.. Divine mercy is the grace and merit won by Christ on our behalf in His Passion and Resurrection. The grace of Easter naturally flows into Mercy Sunday. Even before the official designation, the Church has historically designated these eight days of Easter to celebrate the Paschal mysteries of divine mercy. The early Church celebrated the Sunday after Easter as the feast day, Dominica in Albis depositis, the Sunday dressed in white linen. St. Augustine is attributed to have called it the compendium of the days of mercy. Indeed, in his Regina Caeli address on Divine Mercy Sunday on April 26, 1995, Pope John Paul II said The whole Octave of Easter is like a single day, and that Octave is thanksgiving for the goodness God has shown man in the whole Easter mystery. In these eight feast days, we offer thanksgiving for the divine mercy and salvation wrought for us on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
