Old Mission Church is deeply blessed that one of our families will be making a pilgrimage of healing through the generosity of the Order of Malta and the grace of Our Lady of Lourdes. The 900 year old Order of Malta performs works of charity and faith outreach to those in special need. Last fall Old Mission received a letter from the Order of Malta, Western Association, inviting the parish to nominate one or more candidates to be granted an all-expense paid journey to the healing site of Lourdes, France where the blessed Mother appeared to Bernadette Soubirous in After inquiring about the needs of both parish and Old Mission School families, we nominated Hank Gibbs, son of Jeff and Terri Gibbs and brother of Charlie and Lucy. Hank is an eighth-grader at OMS who is affected by Parry-Romberg Syndrome, an auto-immune disorder which attacks the bone, tissue and nervous system connected to facial features. There is no known cure and to date Hank has undergone five surgical procedures to repair and replace damage caused by this rare disease. In spite of his challenges, Hank continues to inspire others and is a champion for those who must live and thrive with a rare disease. In his letter of nomination I wrote, Hank comes from a deeply loving and faithful family and has accepted this challenge with courage and dignity. He also has the respect and support of his classmates and Old Mission School. I cannot imagine a more deserving young person than Hank to be included in a Lourdes pilgrimage. I have spoken to his parents and they have given their full permission and support. The Gibbs Family Left to Right: Charlie, Terri, Lucy, Jeff & Hank Earlier this year we learned that Hank was among 50 persons of all ages and conditions from throughout the western United States chosen to join the 2015 Malta pilgrimage to Lourdes during the first week of May. The Order of Malta is also partially subsidizing the travel costs of Hank s mother Terri who will be joining the group as co-pilgrim and care-giver. They will depart on April 28 to join more than 25,000 malades from around the world gathering in Lourdes for a week of services, prayer and healing. To learn more about Hank and his family, to help with medical costs, and to follow their journey of a lifetime, go to or To learn more about Lourdes, a good website is: Please keep Hank and his family in your prayers and remember your own needs during this pilgrimage. Hank is on his own journey but he is also aware that he is our ambassador to Lourdes and is mindful especially of those with rare diseases and difficult diagnosis. Continuing Easter Blessings Fr.

6 LA VOZ LATINA Cuarto Domingo de Pascua 26 de abril de 2015 Miren cuánto amor nos ha tenido el Padre, pues no sólo nos llamamos hijos de Dios, sino que lo somos. 1 Juan 3:1 TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE Imágenes antiguas de Cristo lo mostraban como un pastor joven cargando una ovejita en sus hombros. Él mismo se presenta como el buen Pastor (Juan 10:11). Esta imagen que nos conforta con el amor de Cristo, es en realidad una imagen radical. Hay que saber dos cosas sobre el pastor palestino de aquella época: 1) los pastores eran considerados sucios, peligrosos y ladrones, y 2) cuando cargaban una ovejita era porque ellos mismos le habían quebrado la pierna. Porque Jesús se describe como uno de ellos? Jesús ve más allá de las apariencias y los estereotipos, y se asocia con aquellas personas que la sociedad de su tiempo odiaba y marginaba. Por voluntad propia decide estar entre los pobres y despreciados. Si Jesús viniera a la tierra en nuestro tiempo, se describiría a sí mismo como el buen inmigrante. En cuanto a la ovejita sobre el hombre: en casos extremos, de ovejas rebeldes que se alejaban del rebaño, los pastores tenían que quebrarles la pierna para cargarlas sobre los hombros. De esta manera las amansaban para que no se alejaran de él. Dios no hace esto en nosotros, pero tampoco nos evita el sufrimiento. Antes bien, nos ayuda a llevarlo de manera heroica, como lo hizo con el santo Job. Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright J. S. Paluch Co. EL BUEN PASTOR El Cuarto Domingo de Pascua tradicionalmente se conoce como el Domingo del Buen Pastor. Hoy escuchamos las palabras del Señor cuando se llama a sí mismo el buen pastor que da la vida por sus ovejas. A veces es tan difícil para nosotros comprender la realidad de que alguien esté dispuesto a dar su vida por alguien. Esto es muy cierto en una sociedad que pone tanto énfasis en el poder y en el avance social, con frecuencia a expensas de pisotear a otra gente para escalar a la cima. Las Escrituras de hoy nos muestran a quién debemos imitar al que da su vida por las ovejas. Las Escrituras de hoy nos retan a descubrir la manera de llevar vida a los que están a nuestro alrededor a construir y no a destruir. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.
