Fire HeartEaster Season 2011: Rekindling the Fire…Spreading the Spirit!

This is the Third Sunday of Easter. We live the resurrection by being attentive to the Spirit in our midst, and nurturing the resurrection life that is emerging in and among us. But how do we recognize the movement of the Spirit in and among us? Do we recognize “our hearts burning within us” when meet a companion on our path? Do we recognize Christ present in “in the breaking of the bread,” in the Word, in the Sacrament, in each other? How can we help ourselves to be open to the Spirit’s illuminating fire?

Readings for this Sunday:

  • Acts 2: 14 & 22-28. Death could not hold Jesus
  • 1 Peter 1: 17-21. The ransom was paid in the blood of Jesus
  • Lk 24: 13-35. The two disciples on the road to Emmaus experienced transformation because of a personal encounter with Christ, conversing about the Scriptures and in the breaking of the bread; then their experience was affirmed by the community of believers. We, too, are transformed by encountering Christ in word and sacrament, and in the community.

The Epigram Develops New Electronic Format

The following is a letter from Sr. Mary, the staff representative for the Epigram Committee. As we begin the new electronic format for The Epigram, we also wish to pay tribute to Jane Duerr, a long-time editor of The Epigram, Epiphany’s parish newsletter.

Dear Epiphanites:

We are moving The Epigram into the “future” in a little different way. The Epigram will now be “human interest” stories on the web. We will attempt to post stories twice monthly on the 1st and the 15th of each month. That is dependent on having a pool of “writers”. So….if you love reading human interest stories please consider trying your hand at writing one. The Epigram committee is always in need of new writers.

Below is a little “historical” data about one of our long time editors of The Epigram, Jane Duerr.

Collecting Gloves and Tools for St. Anthony Garden

Garden GLovesImmigrants who are studying English with Catholic Charities are excited to be starting a vegetable garden at the new CC St. Anthony site in the Portland neighborhood. They are in need of overalls, smocks and old shoes that they can change into for their garden work time (they plan to leave these at the classroom to share.) Gloves and tools would also be appreciated.

When: Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 5:30 PM
Where: Community Center

Are you old enough to remember the CARE (Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere) packages that originated after World War II? Bet you didn't know that CARE still exists as a global humanitarian organization now focusing on women and how they are affected by poverty. Currently they are working on getting a law passed by Congress called the Prevention of Child Marriage Act.

Easter SpiritEaster Season 2011: Rekindling the Fire…Spreading the Spirit!

This is the Second Sunday of Easter. We live the resurrection by being attentive to the Spirit in our midst, and nurturing the resurrection life that is emerging in and among us. But how do we recognize the movement of the Spirit in and among us? How do we, like Thomas, pre-judge the motives or perspectives of other members of our community and not believe what they say, even when it is true? How do we help ourselves to be open to the Spirit’s illuminating fire?
