Dear faithful of Our Lady of the Lakes,

I share with you this great joy: Christ is risen! He is truly risen! Resurrection Sunday or Easter is the most important holiday for all Christians since the Resurrection of Jesus is the fundamental reason for our faith. We joyfully celebrate Christ's triumph over sin and death, thus opening the door to reconciliation and eternal life.

In times of so many trials such as those we have been living for more than a year, Jesus extends his love and his resurrection to us to begin again, to close the door to our selfishness and excessive ambitions, to our fears and lack of faith in him, to our hatreds, to our way of judging others, to give way to truth, to forgiveness and to reconciliation, to true justice and love.

This time offers us the opportunity to renew our life in God as we renew our baptismal commitment to live in the light of the Savior and Redeemer of the world. May the resurrection of Christ help us all to value and defend life in all its stages. He is Lord and giver of life. May He continue to guide and protect everyone. Many blessings to all.

On behalf of Fr. Luis Flores, the Deacons, the Parish Staff, and I, Fr. Flavio Montes, have a happy and joyful Resurrection Sunday, and endless blessings during these fifty days of Easter!


Queridos feligreses:

Les comparto esta gran alegría: ¡Cristo ha resucitado! ¡Ha resucitado de veras! El Domingo de Resurrección o de Pascua es la fiesta más importante para todos los cristianos ya que es la Resurrección de Jesús la razón fundamental de nuestra fe. Celebramos con gozo el triunfo de Cristo sobre el pecado y sobre la muerte abriéndonos así las puertas a la reconciliación y a la vida eterna.

En tiempos de tantas pruebas como los que hemos estado viviendo por más de un año, Jesús nos extiende su amor y su resurrección para comenzar de nuevo, para cerrarle la puerta a nuestros egoísmos y ambiciones desmedidas, a nuestros miedos y faltas de fe en Él, a nuestros odios, a nuestra manera de juzgar a los demás, para así poder dar paso a la verdad, al perdón y a la reconciliación, a la justicia y el amor verdaderos.

Este tiempo nos ofrece la oportunidad de abrir, de par en par, nuestra vida a Dios al tiempo que renovamos nuestro compromiso bautismal para vivir bajo la luz del Salvador y Redentor del mundo. Que la resurrección de Cristo nos ayude a todos a valorar y defender la vida en todas sus etapas. Él es Señor y dador de vida. Que Él pues, continúe guiando y protegiendo a todos. Muchas bendiciones para todos.

A nombre de los reverendos padres Luis Flores Miguel Gil, Jorge Noda, Rolando Medina, los señores diáconos, el personal parroquial, y en el mío propio, el padre Flavio Montes, les deseamos que tengan una muy ¡Feliz Pascua de Resurrección y gracias sin fin durante esta cincuentena Pascual!
