Blessed John Paul II

Excerpts from Pope Benedict's Homily for the Beatification of John Paul II.

Today is the Second Sunday of Easter, which Blessed John Paul II entitled Divine Mercy Sunday. The date was chosen for today's celebration because, in God's providence, my predecessor died on the vigil of this feast. Today is also the first day of May, Mary's month, and the liturgical memorial of Saint Joseph the Worker. All these elements serve to enrich our prayer, they help us in our pilgrimage through time and space; but in heaven a very different celebration is taking place among the angels and saints! Even so, God is but one, and one too is Christ the Lord, who like a bridge joins earth to heaven. At this moment we feel closer than ever, sharing as it were in the liturgy of heaven.

"Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe" (Jn 20:29). In today's Gospel Jesus proclaims this beatitude: the beatitude of faith. For us, it is particularly striking because we are gathered to celebrate a beatification, but even more so because today the one proclaimed blessed is a Pope, a Successor of Peter, one who was called to confirm his brethren in the faith. John Paul II is blessed because of his faith, a strong, generous and apostolic faith. We think at once of another beatitude: "Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven" (Mt 16:17). What did our heavenly Father reveal to Simon? That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. Because of this faith, Simon becomes Peter, the rock on which Jesus can build his Church. The eternal beatitude of John Paul II, which today the Church rejoices to proclaim, is wholly contained in these sayings of Jesus: "Blessed are you, Simon" and "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe!" It is the beatitude of faith, which John Paul II also received as a gift from God the Father for the building up of Christ's Church.

Blessed John Paul II, pray for us!

In Loving Memory of Fr. Francis "Pete" Peterson

Psalm 118
The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.

Francis Peterson was born on July 23, 1925 in Philadelphia, PA. He was ordained tot eh priesthood for the Diocese of Honolulu on May 14, 1960 at the Cathedral of Sts Peter and Paul in Philadelphia, PA. Fr. Francis Peterson was a WW II vet and served the people in Hawaii for 51 years as a priest. His pastoral assignments were in various parishes in the Diocese of Honolulu and he affliated with St Francis medical Center and World Wide Marriage Encounter.

Fr. "Pete" had leukemia and on April 14, 2011, he died at Tripler Medical Center in Honolulu. Fr "Pete" offers himself beyond death and he has donated his body to the University of Hawaii's John A. Burns School of Medicine.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil,
for you with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

Pauline Books & Media and the Daughters of St. Paul offer resources on their website for those saddened by the destructive earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The prayers and reflections are available at no cost and can be used by groups, priests, individuals, and anyone seeking a way to help bring the needs of the victims to God.

Pauline Bookfair at Resurrection Parish!

For many ROL parishioners it's difficult to get downtown to the Pauline Bookstore. So, at the request of ROL parishioner and faithful customer, Gaylene Colon, the Daughters of Saint Paul brought the bookstore to Waipio. After each Mass last weekend Sister Linh and Sister An Mei offered an assortment of spiritual books, DVD's and rosaries for the parishioners of Resurrection of the Lord parish to view and purchase. We at ROL would like to thanks the Daughters of Saint Paul for their dedication and service in bringing the word of Our Lord, and the Catholic Church, to our Hawaiian Ohana.

The Great Aloha Run 2011

Annually on Presidents' Day, the Great Aloha Run takes place in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The 8.15 miles (approx. 13 km) course starts in downtown Honolulu on Nimitz Highway across from Aloha Tower, and runs west on Nimitz Highway along Honolulu Harbor, under the Interstate H-1 viaduct near Honolulu International Airport, and along Kamehameha Highway, finishing on the floor of Aloha Stadium. The Aloha Tower to Aloha Stadium route gives the race its name.

This year about 27,000 runners, 90% are Hawaii residents. This number also includes as many as 5,000 members of the United States Armed Forces who run in formation in the so-called "Sounds of Freedom" division.

There are about 19222 participants have finished the race. Srs. An Mei and Sr Gioan Linh joined Bishop Larry Silva and a group from the Diocese of Honolulu. The cause was to get pledges of prayers for the Akua Run/Walk for Vocations.
