Today we sense the apostles’ trepidation as they begin to realize that the Lord would soon be leaving them. In their fear, they ask, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” (John 14:5). Jesus tells them that he is the way. The Easter season has been a time of growing in Easter faith so that we, too, may learn to know that Jesus is the way. We can take comfort in the Lord’s promise that he is going to his Father’s house to prepare a place for us, his chosen people who have been called out of darkness into God’s wonderful light. As the paschal candle continues to burn during this holy season, let us remember that in baptism we were given the light of Christ. With Christ our light as the beacon lighting our way, let us march toward the glory of Pentecost.

My mom will have her first round of post-operation chemo tomorrow.

Please pray for the chemo to be both effective and gentle, and for her overall recovery. She is so grateful for your prayers, which have sustained her (and us) at this tough time!
I also must ask you for prayer for my beloved mother-in-law Betty Zepeda. As some of you know, in...Read more
