Zoning Approval for Cemetery Expansion Print E-mail

Cemetery in American Czestochowa The National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa announced today that it would be expanding its cemetery by approximately 500 burial plots. The Shrine said it had obtained a zoning permit from the Township of New Britain allowing the installation of burial crypts in portions of the Shrine's existing cemetery which are designated as 'yard' under the Township zoning ordinance. The permit requires that the cemetery maintain a 45 foot planted buffer area in which no burials are permitted and that any above ground structures must be set back a full 100 feet from the property line. The permit also requires that the 45 foot buffer planting be completed before the burial crypt expansion is begun.

Fr. Provincial of the Shrine said "that work will begin as soon as weather permits on the planting within the 45 foot buffer and that the installation of burial crypts in the area behind the 45 foot buffer will begin promptly after the planting is completed."

Fr. Christopher said "this will add substantially to the capacity of our cemetery."

 

 
III SUNDAY OF EASTER Print E-mail

 The Gospel  (Lk 24:13-35)

Now that very day two of them were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. He asked them, "What are you discussing as you walk along?" They stopped, looking downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, "Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?" And he replied to them, "What sort of things?" They said to him, "The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him. But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place. Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive.

Śladami Jana Pawła II zdążajmy do Emaus... Print E-mail

Jan Paweł II2 kwietnia 2005 roku o godz. 9:37 wieczorem opuścił ziemię Ojciec Święty Jan Paweł II, aby na zawsze zamieszkać w domu naszego Niebieskiego Ojca w niebie. To był pamiętny czas dla wszystkich ludzi ziemi, wielki i pamiętny tydzień całego ówczesnego świata, który mimo obowiązków, zabiegania zatrzymał się i trwał na modlitwie. Ludzie wszystkich krajów, kultur, wyznań podawali sobie ręce wznosząc je ku niebu w jednej i tej samej intencji. Zniknęły granice państw, zniknęły poglądy i dążenia - wszystko to zamilkło i zeszło na margines, a wszyscy staliśmy wobec tajemnicy przechodzenia z życia do życia Kogoś kogo tak bardzo kochaliśmy, Kogoś - kto poprzez tajemnicę swojego przechodzenia do Domu Ojca uczynił na świecie jedno państwo - Bożej miłości. Towarzyszyliśmy w odchodzeniu tego bez którego nie wyobrażaliśmy sobie, że może istnieć ziemia, świat, pokój, jedność, a nade wszystko ta miłość, która tryskała każdego dnia z Jego gestów, słów, czynów, uśmiechu.

The Annunciation of the Lord Print E-mail

The Annunciation of the LordThe feast of the Annunciation goes back to the fourth or fifth century. Its central focus is the Incarnation: God has become one of us. From all eternity God had decided that the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity should become human. Now, as Luke 1:26-38 tells us, the decision is being realized. The God-Man embraces all humanity, indeed all creation, to bring it to God in one great act of love. Because human beings have rejected God, Jesus will accept a life of suffering and an agonizing death: "No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends" (John 15:13).

Mary has an important role to play in God’s plan. From all eternity God destined her to be the mother of Jesus and closely related to him in the creation and redemption of the world. We could say that God’s decrees of creation and redemption are joined in the decree of Incarnation. As Mary is God’s instrument in the Incarnation, she has a role to play with Jesus in creation and redemption. It is a God-given role. It is God’s grace from beginning to end. Mary becomes the eminent figure she is only by God’s grace. She is the empty space where God could act. Everything she is she owes to the Trinity.

ZWIASTOWANIE PAŃSKIE Print E-mail

Oto ja, służebnica Pańska - niech mi się stanie według Słowa Twego! Niech mi się stanie według TWEGO SŁOWA!

W dzisiejszą uroczystość Zwiastowania Pańskiego słyszymy słowa:   Co znaczy dla mnie ten wers z modlitwy Anioł Pański? Wiele: chcę - próbuję chcieć - przyjąć Panie Twe wyroki, plany, jakie masz wobec mnie. Są one zakryte przede mną, bo gdybym je znał wcześniej i wiedział ile bólu, ile cierpienia mi szykujesz, aby skruszyć moje serce pełne pychy, to pewnie uciekłbym daleko. Próbuję przyjmować, ale jakże trudno mi to idzie! Jak trudno! Ciągle powracam do swego pomysłu na życie, ciągle porównuję się z innymi, ciągle mam pretensje, bo ludzie nie są tacy, jak by mi pasowało.  Dzisiaj, Panie Boże, ja to wszystko rozumiem i nawet chcę Ci się podporządkować z pokorą, jednak wychowanie, nawyki, wzorce świata atakujące ze wszech stron - bardzo utrudniają mi spotkanie z Tobą, słuchanie Ciebie, ujrzenie ścieżek, którymi chcesz mnie prowadzić.
