First to all of our  Cursillo mothers I say Happy Mother’s Day.  Thank you for saying yes to life ! Thank you for saying yes to love !  Thank you for all you do, especially those who are home schooling their kids right now !

Our first reading today talks about the first seven deacons.  To the gaggle of deacons who assist with Cursillo, I say thank you.   In two days I will celebrate my 41st anniversary of ordination.  I often reflect upon this reading from Acts 6:1-7.  After the apostles laid hands upon them the scripture says; “The word of God continued to spread, and the number of disciples in Jerusalem increased greatly…”  After this time of isolation with the Coronavirus, let us pray the number of disciple will increase greatly!

During this Lenten and Easter season, we have experienced a great change in our lives and in our routines.  Thing we were accustomed to were disrupted.   Because of these changes we might wonder if Jesus is still with us.  Jesus has not left us alone.  He wants to give us eyes to see him in every situation we may face.

So let us take to heart the words of today’s gospel, John 14:1. “Do not let your hearts be troubled.  You have faith in God; have faith also in me.”

DeColores, Deacon Doug
