2 ST. BONAVENTURE From our Pastor CONGRATULATIONS to all of our First Communicants! As children, we went nuts on Christmas morning with all the presents we received. We could hardly contain ourselves! This same feeling takes place in our young people receiving the Eucharist for the first time. They KNOW they are receiving Jesus in this very special sacrament. We adults know it as well. But the danger is that we can become complacent over time. This is caused by our human tendency toward sin. To diminish this drift, we are challenged to be as fully engaged in the liturgy as possible, live out what we learn at Mass and learn more about the Eucharist and its abundant graces. As we pray for our First Communicants to continue growing in their faith, we pray for ourselves that we may be good role models for them and strive to taste the same excitement our young people experience. The Real Presence is a real gift to us. Let s be really present in receiving the Body and Blood of Christ. God s Blessings, PARISH NEWS FIRST HOLY COMMUNION Today, we are celebrating with our young people who have prepared to receive First Holy Communion. 9AM - FFF students 11AM - St. Bonaventure students 1:30PM - FFF students (Spanish Mass) COLUMBUS, NE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED We are planning a spring cleanup of our grounds on Saturday, April 21 starting at 9 a.m. Service hours can be earned by students.

En medio de una comida, al partir el pan, en medio de su conversación. Jesús se hace realmente presente a sus discípulos y sigue haciéndose presente hasta ahora en el banquete eucarístico. Los apóstoles sintieron miedo, vemos en los pasajes bíblicos que el miedo es una reacción humana normal ante la presencia extraordinaria de la acción de Dios; el miedo muestra que la resurrección no fue algo inventado o fabricado; era una realidad divina y misteriosa que iban a entender gradualmente según su capacidad humana. Hasta ahora para nosotros la resurrección es un ministerio. Jesús les abrió a los apóstoles el entendimiento para que tuvieran una perspectiva más amplia del plan providencial de Dios. Jesús, a través de los sufrimientos, pasa a revelarse como el Hombre Nuevo, creador de la Nueva Humanidad, que viene a traer el amor perfecto, el perdón y la conversión a todos, comenzando con sus propios asesinos en Jerusalén. Los discípulos deberán seguir sus pasos e imitar su ejemplo. Hoy debemos orar para que también a nosotros el Señor nos abra el entendimiento, como lo hizo con los discípulos. Resulta muy interesante ver que el Jesús resucitado habla muy poco del pasado, de lo que había dicho o hecho antes de su pasión; tampoco habla sobre cómo se había comportado o lo habían defraudado sus discípulos en la pasión. El mensaje del Jesús resucitado mira al futuro, al perdón, reconciliación y ministerio sin límites. El cristiano que resucita con Cristo no necesita ya traer nuevamente a la memoria los rencores y errores del pasado; debe dejar atrás el pasado y comprometerse a crear un futuro nuevo en la reconciliación y el perdón.
