A Blessed Easter to All! We Friars wish you a most blessed Easter Day and Season with many graces for you and your family and loved ones. We 6 friars celebrated the beginning of the Easter Season with the Easter Vigil last night. While it was sad in a way that there were only 6 of us, the mass in a way took on a very personal meaning. Fr. Roch preached a beautiful homily about the meaning of the Resurrection. He said that while it is difficult for us to identify with the Resurrection this side of Heaven, we have all “seen the Lord.” We would not be where we are if we hadn’t. That was the experience of so many during the Resurrection appearances of Our Lord. His appearance was veiled yet they knew He was with them. Fr. Roch also mentioned the great faith of Mary Magdalene and her companions Easter Sunday morning when going to the tomb. They were going to anoint the body of the Lord yet they did not know who would roll away the huge tombstone. Yet they instinctively knew that going about the Lord’s business in faith, devotion and love, all would be taken care of. This is a great lesson for us all in our troubled times. Let us rejoice this season amidst a most uncertain future, for the Resurrection is our hope and promise that the Lord is always with us and “taking care” of us and all of our needs. Happy Easter! Fr. Anthony and the Friars

Happy Solemnity of St. Joseph to all! What a wonderful feast we celebrate in the Year of St. Joseph. Isn’t it interesting that God honors this man above all men when so little is known about him? He is such a great intercessor as well as model for all, especially men, of how we should live our lives in this world. He had to be a strong and Godly man for the role that God gave to him. It must have been so humbling to care, teach, raise and provide for the Messiah and His Mother. The title Saint John Paul 2 loved for Joseph was: “The Guardian of the Redeemer.” I think that guarding is an important word for our lives. Part of the life of holiness consists in guarding our hearts and minds and families from anything that could compromise our beautiful Catholic faith and devotional life.

St. Teresa of Avila said that whatever one asks of St. Joseph on his feast day, he will surely obtain. She was probably not referring to winning the lottery but rather the things we really need to get to heaven. Many years ago I entrusted an atheist to his prayers. Shortly after this person had a dream of Jesus calling them to Himself while they were both sitting in a church pew. This person was baptized and started to live a most Godly life. I just knew it was St. Joseph’s prayers. Make no mistake, he is a most powerful intercessor. Let us entrust our troubled Church to his care this day as well as all our loved ones, especially those who are farthest from Jesus. And may St. Joseph, “Terror of demons”, help us to live a most pure and Godly life in our thoughts, words, and actions. God bless you all and thank you again for all your support for the friars. Fr. Anthony and the friars of San Juan Diego Friary

A Blessed Ash Wednesday and 2021 Lent to all. We thank you all for your continued support and generosity to our community and want you to know you are all in our daily prayers. Many of you have by now decided your Lenten practice(s). But may I offer a suggestion to add something. Yesterday while listening to the radio, I heard a study done about deaths in New Mexico over the last 20 years. The radio host was comparing deaths in 2020 to the average for the last 20 years here in NM. What was interesting was that there was no difference in the death rate among the elderly. One would think with our super crazed media hysteria about COVID that that number would be in the hundreds of thousands for us. But unfortunately, the death rate among teens and young adults was way up last year. These were not due to COVID directly, but are called despair deaths. They are due to depression, anxiety, drugs, despair, loneliness, etc. A doctor friend of mine said she has had 4 suicides this week already in her hospital. The fallout of the lockdown is absolutely terrible. May I suggest that you reach out as best you can to family and friends this Lent. Everyone is experiencing mental anguish at this time and we need to help one another through it. When God said that it was not good for us to be alone, He was not kidding. God bless your Lent and let’s hope that by Easter we will be in a much better place. And of course we are never alone for Our Loving Father is always near.

[01/08/21]   A blessed day to everyone! We hope all of you are doing well this last Friday of the Christmas Season.

Many of us have never seen events like we have seen since last March when the Pandemic broke out. There is perhaps a political crisis in our country that is unparalleled in our almost 250 years as nation. Many have asked me what my thoughts are on the whole mess, to which I have little to reply. I have never been through a pandemic much less the political going ons of the last few weeks.

But let me try to offer three thoughts. First, one of our novice brothers, from Brazil, was telling me the other day that his country went through some dark years of socialism where religious liberty, the church, life and family were all attacked by legislators and judges. But now they have a devout Catholic as president who’s very pro life. His administration is likewise very pro life and family. This should give us hope that the incoming administration does not have the last say in the history of our nation - God does.

Second, we must remember that people are never our enemies in the truest sense. Our warfare is with evil spirits, says St. Paul. People who work alongside evil spirits, doing evil, promoting evil, are pawns who need our prayers, not our hatred and anger.

And finally, before COVID there was an annual pilgrimage to a Our Lady of Częstochowa in Doylestown PA every august. Hundreds would walk over 60 miles in her honor. The first group of three was always the Polish Adults, those who lived and grew up under the harsh communist regime in Poland. They never smiled and were all business, praying rosary after rosary, going to confession, adoring Jesus at Mass. I’ve come to realize their immense strong faith was born through persecution. Brothers and Sisters, be assured, persecution is coming. Jesus promised this to us in the Gospels time and time again. We must realize that God uses it to make our faith strong, to purify our hearts and Church of worldly attachments.

Let us not be ruled by fear, anxiety, hatred or anger in these difficult times. Everything is in the hands of the Living God, Our Blessed Lord, In Whom All authority in heaven and earth has been given. God bless you all, Fr. Anthony and the friars.
