Hau’oli la Pakoa!  Happy Easter!

Hau’oli la Pakoa!  Happy Easter!

Greetings parishioners and friends of St. Augustine:.

May the Spirit of this Easter Season be with you and your loved ones.  This is the most unusual time in the life of our Church and global community, but it is also a time of great re-awakening.  A time to focus on what are the important things in life and how as a global community of humanity we all are working toward a common goal, how to protect and ensure our future.

These days of isolation have made us rethink about why faith is so important and valuable in keeping us hopeful.  This Lenten Season has truly been an opportunity to practice its prescription of “Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving.”  These help to fine tune our relationship with “AKUA” (God), for he is the only source of our HOPE.  Jesus is  the model of how we are to live and care for each other in times of crisis, especially during this pandemic.  There are those who don’t seem to care and continue on in life as if this pandemic is not serious.  We pray for them to understand the deeper realities that face all of humanity.

I have noticed these days that creation and our relationships with one another speak of our common effort to heal.  Heal the earth, our environment; our relationships with familiy and friends; putting aside our indifferences and prejudices and to think as a global community.

What we do now will ensure what our future will be.  Jesus is that model of teaching us how we can live with one another, especially in times of crisis.

The greatest satisfaction during these days has been to serve the needy, especially the hungry; making contact with those who we care for, especially our parishioner base; and our family and friends from away.  We are connecting with each other as a sign of our caring and love.  We pray, especially during this time, that we will experience the glorious gift of God’s eternal HOPE that Jesus has provided for us.  With Mary as our constant model of faithfulness, she teaches us to persevere and trust in her son, for through him God’s living Spirit continues in our lives of dedication.

Mahalo nui loa to all who continue to support us with your stewardship of giving, especially in helping with Aunty Carmen’s Kitchen, I am grateful for your support.

Know that on Easter morning as I celebrate mass through live-streaming  at 8 a.m., all of your intentions will be lifted up as one complete prayer to the God who first loved us.  Join us at facebook.com/StAugustineHawaii.

Me ke aloha pumehana,
