5th Sunday of Easter [A], 2017 May 13-14, 2017

Posted on 16 May 2017, Pastor: Rev. Jeff McGowan

1st Reading: Acts 6:1-7  You may announce the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Psalm 33  Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.

2nd Reading: 1 Peter 2:4-9  The word of God continued to spread and the number of disciples in Jerusalem increased greatly.

Gospel: John 14:1-2  Jesus said to him: “Have I been with you so long and still you do not know me, Philip?”

Mother’s Day


This is the 100th anniversary the first time Mary appeared to the shepherd children in Fatima. Catholics throughout the world are celebrating. Of course, Pope Francis was there for a celebration with some estimates say was 1 million strong. He recently returned from visiting Egypt. Nearly everyone is scared to go to Egypt, but not our Pope. He embodies courage. He went with the same message the Blessed Mother brought to Fatima, peace in a world that seems headed toward war.

This Gospel passage makes a visceral connection for me. Whenever the challenges mount and I get stressed and tired, as I celebrate Mass and prepare to raise the Body of Jesus for you all the say Amen, I remember this gospel and say to myself for Jesus: “Have I been with you so long and still you do not know me?” It reminds me to place my trust in Him.
