Way of the Cross 2017

extradujicial

Way of the Cross on Palm Sunday organized by the JPIC Commission secretariat beginning with Eucharistic celebration at the Divine Word Missionaries Via dei Verbiti 1 at 9:00. Please bring your Palms and it will be in Italian English Spanish and Portuguese. Route Piazza dei Partiggiani – Piramide –Testaccio – PortaPortese – San Francesco a Ripa – San Calisto – S. Maria in Trastevere – S. Egidio – S. Maria della Luce – Fatebene Fratelli Hospital – S. Bartolomeo Tiber Island.

INTRODUCTION: The way of the cross is a sojourn of the soul inviting us to remember that we are faith walkers, compassionate pilgrims and not sightseers or tourists.  As such, this journey takes us to places, memories and realities where we’d rather not go or about which we would rather not think. By walking this way with Jesus suffering now in so many of our brothers and sisters, we feel again their pain, aloneness and suffering. We are urged once again to be full of care for and empathy with our brothers and sisters.

This year 2017’s reflection is based on Pope Francis’ Message for the World Day of Peace entitled: Nonviolence: A Style of Politics for Peace.  In his message, He repeats his observation that “we find ourselves engaged in a horrifying world war fought piecemeal” or world war three “in installments.” His message is that active nonviolence is the only sure way to peace: “Violence is not the cure for our broken world.” The pope asks us to go beyond the surface of a conflict, see others in their “deepest dignity” and “make active nonviolence our way of life.” “Whoever accepts the Good News of Jesus is able to acknowledge the violence within and be healed by God’s mercy, becoming in turn an instrument of reconciliation.”

As we visit various places and stop at monuments that mark historical events of people who lived here before us, let us remember that a follower of Christ cannot desire freedom from the cross which is the nonviolent symbol of love for he or she was specifically chosen to be the disciple of nonviolent love – Jesus Christ. ITALIAN

FIRST STATION: Jesus is Condemned to Death ENGLISH

L:   We adore you O Christ and we praise you

All: By your death you have redeemed the world and its people.

Stazione Ostiense – This Station was built by Mussolini to welcome Hitler to Rome in 1942. We call to mind the dictators and dictatorships of the past and, more importantly, those that exist now and the cruelty, havoc and suffering they are having on their people and the world.

Scripture: While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived, accompanied by a large crowd, with swords and clubs, who had come from the chief priests and the elders of the people. His betrayer had arranged a sign with them, saying, “The man I shall kiss is the one; arrest him.”Immediately he went over to Jesus and said, “Hail, Rabbi!” and he kissed him. Jesus answered him, “Friend, do what you have come for.” Then stepping forward they laid hands on Jesus and arrested him. And behold, one of those who accompanied Jesus put his hand to his sword, drew it, and struck the high priest’s servant, cutting off his ear.

Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its sheath, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.” (Matthew 26:47-52)

Reflection: Jesus himself lived in violent times. Yet he taught that the true battlefield, where violence and peace meet, is the human heart: for “it is from within, from the human heart, that evil intentions come” (Mk 7:21). But Christ’s message in this regard offers a radically positive approach. He unfailingly preached God’s unconditional love, which welcomes and forgives. He taught his disciples to love their enemies (cf. Mt 5:44) and to turn the other cheek (cf. Mt 5:39). When he stopped her accusers from stoning the woman caught in adultery (cf. Jn 8:1-11), and when, on the night before he died, he told Peter to put away his sword (cf. Mt 26:52), Jesus marked out the path of nonviolence. (Pope Francis WDP 2017 message no.3)

Let us pray together: Dear God, we wish peace to every man, woman and child, and we pray that the image and likeness of God in each person will enable us to acknowledge one another as sacred gifts endowed with immense dignity. Especially in situations of conflict, let us respect this, our “deepest dignity”, and make active nonviolence our way of life. Amen.(Pope Francis WDP 2017 message no.1)

Sung Refrain: Grant to us, O God, a heart renewed, Recreate in us your own spirit, Lord

SECOND STATION: Jesus takes up the Cross SPANISH

L:   We adore you O Christ and we praise you

All: By your death you have redeemed the world and its people.

Piazzale Ostiense–The Monument erected in 1995 on the 50th anniversary of memory of the victims of Nazi – Fascism, five types of people that were discriminated and condemned to be deported to concentration camps: Homosexuals, immigrants, the gypsies, Jews and political adversaries.

Scripture: Jesus called the people with his disciples and said to them, “If any want to be my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” (Mark 8:34)

Reflection: Saint Francis of Assisi said “If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.” We live in the time of diversity. In our local neighborhood, we experience different nationalities, different cultures, different values, different religions, hear different languages and so on. Let us be the witness of compassion and pity, not exclusion and indifference. Let us carry our own cross, the cross which invites all humankind to salvation.

Let us pray together: Dear God, you invited us to carry our own cross and follow you. Open our heart to our sisters and brothers of a different culture, orientation, race, religion, belief and country. Give us strength to carry the cross to witness your love.

Sung Refrain: Grant to us, O God, a heart renewed, Recreate in us your own spirit, Lord

THIRD STATION: Jesus falls for the first time PORTUGUESE

L:   We adore you O Christ and we praise you

All: By your death you have redeemed the world and its people.

This Aurelian Walls (Mura Aureliane): This Aurelian Walls (Mura Aureliane) are a line of city walls built between 271 AD and 275 AD during the reign of the  Emperors Aurelian and Probus. They superseded the earlier Servian Wall built during the 4th century BC.The walls enclosed all the seven hills of Rome plus the Campus Martius and, on the right bank of the Tiber, the Trastevere district. The size of the entire enclosed area is 1,400 hectares (3,500 acres). This wall was built to protect people against outside violence.

Scripture: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his wounds we are healed”. (Isaiah 53:5).

Reflection 1: Along the slow and final journey of his mission, Jesus succumbs under the weight of the consequences of his choice. All the heavy burdens of human weakness which, in moments of fear and pain, are capable of betraying and condemning weighs upon His shoulders and brings Him to the ground. He is blended in with the material from which every human being is made. That is the earth from which every human is drawn to be free, to live as sister and brother. But with this same earth we erect walls. Apparently walls serve to protect, but in fact, they, end up growing selfishness, division, pride, separation, prejudice and death.

Reflection 2: When human beings feel unsafe there is a tendency to build walls. This is unlike Jesus who became a bridge between God and us. When we feel afraid of other human beings, this project of Jesus for us collapses. Pope Francis often appeals “not to create walls but to build bridges; to defeat evil with good, the offence with forgiveness; an offence you overcome with forgiveness.”

Reflection 3: Mahatma Gandhi, the well-known master of non-violence, experienced many times in his life the meaning of facing the social walls that overwhelm and weigh on people shoulders. Fighting against prejudice and division in the society, he always defended life and the peaceful way to solve problems. Gandhi said: “A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act”. Then, he added: “There are many causes I would die for. There is not a single cause I would kill for.”

Let us pray together: Lord Jesus, help us, with your grace, to bring down the real and imaginary walls created by our sins. Please, strengthen our courage, so that we may be signs of life and hope, building bridges instead of walls. Help us to set free the sons and daughters of God oppressed by injustice, prejudice, war and corruption. May we, like Mahatma Gandhi and many others, be able to dream and affirm the value of love with the testimony our life. Amen

(Let us stretch out our two hands toward the wall like we were pushing out all the walls we build in our mind and our heart and repeat together three times: We are bridge builders!)

Help us to be present to one another, so that we may begin to heal the wounds of time.

MIGRANTS PROJECT INTERNATIONAL DESK

Sr. Florence de la Villéon

rete.migranti@uisg.org – www.uisg.org

 

The migration of peoples is a reality that continues to grow and the challenges of integration are multiplying. In order to respond to this globalization and to the magnitude of this phenomenon that increases, we need to organize a world-wide response that promotes charity, hospitality and generosity. We must make our world more human and more sensitive to the suffering of people on the move. It is necessary to respond to the globalization of migration by the globalization of charity and of mutual assistance we must make the life of migrants more human.

The women religious, called and sent by Christ for his mission, wish to respond with love, passion and compassion to the needs of those who arrive among us and who suffer as refugees and migrants. They wish to respond to their calls with the richness of our different charisms, cultures and spirituality. God, who constantly loves us, is close to our brothers and sisters who live today on the roads of exile or foreign lands, and suffer. He invites us to join them in a spirit of welcome and sharing.

BLESSED BISHOP OSCAR ARNULFO ROMERO AND MEMORY OF THE MARTYRS

Romero

MEMORY OF BLESSED

BISHOP OSCAR ARNULFOROMERO

AND MEMORY OF THE MARTYRS

Centenary of his birth: born August 15, 1917

“You know the language of my preaching. A language that wants to plant hope, which denounces, Yes, but not with hate, but with love; calling to conversion” (Homily 6 November 1977).

 

PRAYER IN THE CHURCH OF

“SAN MARCELLO AL CORSO”

Piazza di San Marcello 5, Roma

Friday, March 31, 2017

From 19 to 20

 

PROMOTERS OF JPIC  UISG/USG

 

Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez (15 August 1917 – 24 March 1980) was a prelate of the Catholic Church in El Salvador, who served as the fourth Archbishop of San Salvador. He spoke out against poverty, social injustice, assassinations and torture. In 1980, Romero was assassinated while offering Mass in the chapel of the Hospital of Divine Providence.

Pope Francis stated during Romero’s beatification that “His ministry was distinguished by a particular attention to the most poor and marginalized.” Hailed as a hero by supporters of liberation theology inspired by his work, Romero, according to his biographer, “was not interested in liberation theology”, but faithfully adhered to Catholic teachings on liberation, desiring a social revolution based on supernatural interior reform.  His spiritual life drew much from the spirituality of Opus Dei.

In 2010, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 24 March as the “International Day for the Right to the Truth Concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims” in recognition of the role of Archbishop Romero in defence of human rights. Romero actively denounced violations of the human rights of the most vulnerable people and defended the principles of protecting lives, promoting human dignity and opposition to all forms of violence.

In 1997, Pope John Paul II bestowed upon Romero the title of Servant of God, and a cause for beatification and canonization was opened for him. The cause stalled, but was reopened by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012. He was declared a martyr by Pope Francis on 3 February 2015, paving the way for his beatification, which took place on 23 May 2015.

Servites providing assistance to the undocumented immigrants in the US

St. Philip Benizi Parish, Fullerton, CA, USA – As elsewhere, the election of Donald Trump as the President of the United States came as a surprise to many / most of our parishioners.  However, with the parish being 70-80% in number Hispanic and almost EVERY family knowing at least someone who is undocumented, surprise here was accompanied with palpable concern.   Working closely with the Diocese’s Office of Life, Justice and Peace (the head of which is a Parishioner at St. Philip’s), our Servite Community has worked very hard to accompany and prepare parishioners fearing the worst.

As the one responsible for operation of the parish (as Pastor) I have made known to the Parish staff that I DON’T give permission to the Civil Authorities to enter our Parish grounds pursuant to an Immigration or otherwise Legal matter without a Court Order and even if they did come with a Court Order, since Church / State issues are involved, I still DON’T give permission for them to enter our grounds until I have spoken with my Superiors both at the Province and Diocese and receive counsel from their lawyers regarding the specifics of the Court Order and the situation at hand.  (My letter, signed and with the parish seal, is hanging in a prominent space in our Parish office for our parish staff to take down and bring to the Authorities should they come).   Our staff has prepared a prioritized list of media and legal contacts to call should the Authorities come knocking,  And everybody on our staff, mostly quite young, know how to operate their cell phones to video anything that were to happen in such a situation.

Further, we distributed some 2000 “know your rights” cards (one side in English, the other in Spanish) to parishioners, so that they know what to do (mostly remain silent and ask for a lawyer) should they be stopped by the Authorities.  The text of these quite handy cards was prepared by the Diocesan Office of Life, Justice and Peace.

Finally, we held an all night prayer vigil with the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the night before President Trump’s inauguration, an event that was attended by hundreds of people throughout the night both from the Parish and beyond.

We don’t know what will come, but in as much as we can be, we are prepared.

Fra Dennis Z.M. Kriz, OSM
