St. John Paul II and the call of Divine Mercy Sunday

In 2005, Easter was on March 27, and Divine Mercy Sunday was on April 3. It’s the same this year. It will be 141 years before this will happen again. See if you can recall Easter 2005. For me, it will always be bright in my memory.

Bishops’ visit to Capitol models faithful citizenship

When the bishops of Minnesota had breakfast with Gov. Mark Dayton and met with legislators at the State Capitol in mid-March, they weren’t just “keeping up appearances.” Beyond the pleasantries and the occasional photo-op, the day was a powerful encapsulation of the mission of the Minnesota Catholic Conference: to protect human dignity and advance the common good by living out the Church’s right and responsibility to participate in public conversation about laws and policies.

As believers, we need to be joyful, fearless, persevering Church

| Archbishop Bernard Hebda | March 31, 2016

Throughout these days of Easter, the readings at Mass remind us of the connection between being disciples of Christ and giving witness to his resurrection. Like Mary Magdalen, Simon Peter, John the beloved disciple and Thomas, we’re called to announce that the Jesus who suffered and died on the cross truly rose from the dead. It’s a story that tests our credulity (how many people do we know who have risen from the dead?). And yet, we know it to be true because of the eye witness testimony of that first generation of believers who saw the empty tomb, who were invited to explore the wounds in the hands and side of the risen Christ, or who shared a meal with him on the seashore and watched him eat the fish that he had prepared. From generation to generation, that testimony has been passed on with great care in the Church — and today that privileged task falls to us.

Como creyentes, necesitamos ser alegres, sin miedo, una Iglesia perseverante

Como creyentes, necesitamos ser alegres, sin miedo, una Iglesia perseverante

| Archbishop Bernard Hebda | March 31, 2016

A lo largo de estos días de Pascua, las lecturas de la Misa nos recuerdan la conexión entre ser Discípulos de Cristo y dar testimonio de su resurrección. Como María Magdalena, Simón Pedro, Juan el discípulo amado y Tomás, estamos llamados a anunciar que el Jesús que sufrió y murió en la cruz verdaderamente se levantó de entre los muertos. Es una historia que pone a prueba nuestra credulidad (¿cuántas personas sabemos que se han levantado de entre los muertos?). Y, sin embargo, sabemos que es cierto a causa del testimonio de esa primera generación de creyentes que vieron la tumba vacía, que fueron invitados a explorar las heridas en las manos y el costado de Cristo resucitado, o que compartieron una comida con él en la orilla del mar y lo vieron comer los pescados que había preparado. De generación en generación, el testimonio se ha transmitido cuidadosamente en la Iglesia – y hoy el privilegio de esa tarea nos corresponde a nosotros.

Q. I try to follow God in the way that it seems like he is calling me to, but I find that I am often walking alone. I am not surrounded by people who are pursuing God like I believe I am called to. Am I doing something wrong?
