          Dear Family,

            HAPPY HOLY WEEK. If Happy Holy Week seems like an
          odd greeting, you know it isn’t when you realize Holy Week is
          about everything we are: a people greatly loved.

            From today’s powerful proclamation of the Passion of the
          Lord, to his gathering of his apostles and friends, to His
          extraordinary gift of Himself which we continue to receive
          every time we gather around his table, to his handing over
          his will to his Father, to the ultimate human suffering to
          make the point that the very worst that we can do to each
          other can never defeat us, to the final “Son, Be Raised.”

            From one saving moment to another, we move in a
          progression that brings us face to face with unconditional
          love, complete forgiveness and the promise of eternal

          Think about turning the television off on Good Friday or at

            All of us wish you a blessed Easter and more to the point,
          we are praying that you grow deeper in your relationship with
          the Lord.

           Be kind to the many who will be here next Sunday. You
          may be the “only Jesus they will see up close and personal.”

           With our prayers and heartfelt appreciation for all of you,
                     In Jesus,

Pensamientos de Media Noche                                            5 de abril de 2009
                                                                          Padre Fetscher
        Querida Familia

           FELIZ SEMANA SANTA. Si les parece que decir Feliz
        Semana Santa es extraño, ustedes saben que no es así si
        realizan que la Semana Santa significa todo lo que somos:
        personas muy amadas.

           Desde hoy, con la poderosa proclamación de la Pasión del
        Señor, hasta su reunión con los apóstoles y amigos, a Su
        extraordinario regalo de su propia entrega que continuamos
        recibiendo cada vez que nos reunimos alrededor de su mesa, a
        su sumisión ante el deseo del Padre, a el último sufrimiento
        humano para enseñarnos que lo peor que podemos hacer a
        nosotros mismos no puede derrotarnos, hasta el final “Hijo,

           De un momento salvador a otro, nos movemos en una
        progresión que nos lleva cara a cara con amor incondicional,
        perdón absoluto y la promesa de su presencia eterna.

           Vean el programa de la Semana Santa y vean donde encajan
        ustedes. Piensen en apagar la televisión el Viernes Santo o por
        lo menos parte del día y díganles a los niños por qué. Pídales
        que oren con ustedes y por ustedes, y por las personas no
        tienen hogar.

          Todos nosotros les deseamos una bendita Pascua, y más al
        punto, oramos por su profundo crecimiento en su relación con el

           Sean amables con los hermanos que nos visitarán el próximo
        domingo. Tal vez ustedes serán el “único Jesús que ellos vean
        de cerca y en persona.”

           Con nuestras oraciones y nuestro profundo agradecimiento
        por todo lo que hacen,

          En Jesús,
