^ We Epiphany Catholic Mission
By Fran Sobieski
The new mass schedule:
Saturday Mass at 5 p.m.,
Thurs. at 8:30 a.m.
Easter morning mass echoes the
Easter Vigil celebration of the night
before the triumphant Easter Sunday.
It remembers and celebrates the very
foundation of our Christian faith:
Jesus is risen and is Lord.
Easter does not end. It begins a
season. Like all major feasts of the
church, it continues for fifty days.

During the early centuries, those
who were baptized at the Easter Vigil
would gather the week of Easter for
further instructions in their Christian
faith, an important lesson for the
newly baptize adult’s journey of new
faith and into fifty days of Eastertime.
When the singing of the all eluia
echoes through clouds of incense
across the many burning candles into
the darkness outside of the church at
the end of the Easter vigil, the “mother
of all vigils” as St. Augustine called
it—we now know that it is celebra-
tion of both memory and hope. It is
praise of both the cross and the res-
urrection, of deliverance from sin and
final death, and of being able to await
ultimate and total redemption in
St. Augustine emphasized the
importance of singing the alleluia
every day throughout the fifty days
of Easter because alleluia will be sing-
ing in the heavenly liturgy. Read Rev-

For forty-odd years, I have done
nothing. We have people who have
given people a place to lay their head,
but I have done nothing. We have
people who have given people food
to eat, but I have done nothing. We
have people who have gone out of
their way to help somebody. But I
have done nothing. We have people
who have counseled others. But I
have done nothing in forty-odd years.
We have people who have pointed
others to Christ Jesus, but I have
done nothing at all. We have people
who have comforted other people in
time of loneliness, but I have done
nothing at all. We have people who

Texas today is more satisfied with each of the components of the crimi-
nal justice system than they were in 1994. The greatest increases in satis-
faction occurred in the area of local law enforcement departments, the
department of Public Safety and the State Prison System. The smallest
increases in satisfaction occurred in the county probation departments
and the State Parole System.
Maybe, finally, we are learning to do our jobs in the proper manner. That
is, more than likely, due to the state requiring more education to be a peace
officer and ongoing continuing education programs after becoming a peace
officer. (By Tom Reader)

Last week, we started a list of char-
acteristics that identify a Christian.
We talk of fearing God, hear and hum-
bly accept His word, boldness an
meekness. But there are several oth-
A Christian is devout, earnest, fer-
vent, not give lip service to God or
fellowman . Cornelius was such a man,
although he was a centurion.
Acts 10: 2 “A devout man, and
one that feared God with all his house,
which gave much alms to the people
and prayed to God always.”
A Christian is a hearer and doer.
James 1: 21, 22 “Wherefore lay
aside all filthiness, superfluity of
naughtiness and receive the en-
grafted word which is able to save
your souls. Be ye doers of the word
and not hearers only deceiving your
own selves. For any be a hearer of
the word and not a doer, he like a man
beholding his natural face in a glass.
For he beholdeth himself, and goeth
his way, and straightway forgetteth
what manner of man he was.”
A Christian must be without guile.
I Peter 2: 1,2 “Wherefore lay aside
all malice and all guile and hypocri-
sies and envies and all evil speakings.
As newborn babes, desire the sin-
cere milk of the word, that ye may
Matt. 5: 6 “Blessed are they which
do hunger and thirst after righteous-
ness for they shall be filled.” A Chris-
tian is holy.
Deut. 7: 6 “For thou are an holy
people unto the Lord thy God: the
Lord they God hath chosen thee to
be a special people unto Him, above
all people that are upon the face of
Col. 3: 12-14 “Put on therefore, as
the elect of God, holy and beloved,

ness of mind, meekness,

longsuffering; forebearing one an-
other, if any man have a quarrel
against any, even as Christ forgave
you, so also do ye. And above all
these things put on charity, which is
the bond of perfectness.”
Christians are to rejoice.
I Thess. 5: 16 “Rejoice evermore.”
Paul gives a good picture of what
will make a Christian stand out from
Romans 7:10-21 “Let love be with-
out dissimulation. Abhor that which
is evil, cleave to that which is god.
Be kindly affectioned to one another
with brotherly love, in honor prefer-
ring one another, not slothful in busi-
ness, fervent is spirit, serving the
Lord, rejoicing in hope, patient in
tribulation: continuing instant in
prayer, Distributing to the necessity
of the saints, given to hospitality.
Bless them them that persecute you,
bless and not curse. Rejoice with
them that do rejoice, and weep with
them that do weep. Be of the same
mind on toward another. Mind not
high things, but condescend to men
of low estate. Be not wise in your own
conceits. Recompense to no man evil
for evil. Provide things honest in the
sight of all men. If it be possible, as
much as lieth in you, live peaceable
with all me. Dearly beloved, avenge
not yourselves, but rather give place
unto wrath, for it is written, Ven-
geance is mine, I will repay, saith the
Lord. Therefore, if thine enemy hun-
ger, feed him, if he thirst, give him
drink: for in so doing, thou shaft heap
coals of fire on his head. Be not over-
come of evil, but overcome evil with
The source of eternal salvation—
In reference to Jesus, the Hebrew
writer said, “Although He was a Son,
He learned obedience from the things
which He suffered; and having been
made perfect, He became to all those
who obey Him the source of eternal
salvation.” Heb. 5: 8,9).
Most people who claim to be
Christian, religiously speaking, rec-
ognize and realize that Jesus is the
source of eternal salvation—thus, the
name Christian. However, many times
the same people overlook the part
where it says, “to all those who obey
Him.” Jesus Himself said that those
who do the will of the Father are the
ones who will enter heaven. (Matt. 7:
Obedience to God and Jesus in-
cludes faith (Heb. 11:6) repentence
(Acts 17:30) and baptism (immersion)
for the remission of sins (Acts 2: 38,
8: 36-39). Will YOU be saved eter-
