7 Sunday of Easter


Acts 1:15-17,20-26; John 4:11-16; Gospel: John 17:11-19 

In these verses from the Acts of the Apostles, we witness the early Christian community grappling with the vacancy left by Judas Iscariot's betrayal and subsequent death. The disciples, guided by Peter, recognize the importance of maintaining the integrity of the Twelve Apostles. They understand that someone must be chosen to fill Judas' place, ensuring that the mission of spreading the Gospel continues unabated.
This passage teaches us the significance of leadership within the Church. The apostles' decision to select Matthias through prayer and discernment underscores the importance of seeking God's guidance in all matters, particularly those concerning the governance and direction of the Church. It reminds us that the Church is not merely a human institution but a divine one, guided by the Holy Spirit.
In this excerpt from the Gospel of John, Jesus engages in a profound conversation with a Samaritan woman at the well. He reveals to her the gift of living water, a metaphor for the spiritual nourishment that he offers to all who believe in him. Despite their cultural differences and the societal norms of the time, Jesus treats the woman with dignity and respect, challenging the prejudices of his disciples and demonstrating God's boundless love for all people.
This passage reminds us of the inclusive nature of Jesus' ministry. He reaches out to those who are marginalized and overlooked, offering them the opportunity for redemption and transformation. As followers of Christ, we are called to emulate his example, extending compassion and kindness to everyone we encounter, regardless of their background or circumstances.
In this passage, known as the High Priestly Prayer, Jesus intercedes on behalf of his disciples, praying to the Father for their protection and sanctification. He acknowledges the challenges they will face as they continue his mission in the world but expresses confidence in their ability to remain faithful through the power of God's word.
This prayer offers comfort and encouragement to all who seek to follow Christ. It reminds us that we are not alone in our journey of faith; Jesus is our advocate and companion, interceding for us before the Father and empowering us through the Holy Spirit. As we strive to live lives of holiness and obedience, we can take solace in the knowledge that Jesus prays for our perseverance and strength, enabling us to overcome the trials and temptations that we encounter.

A Special Announcement...

     We are very thankful for the response we have received from our websie readers! In the very short period of time since we created our site, we have received many messages from you via the Contact Us page with comments and questions about our activities, and requests for information about our church, our cemetery and the PNCC in general.  How wonderful that is! Thank you very much.

      We would like to apologize, however, for our failure to keep the site current.  We have a lot going on at St. Casimir's and our volunteer parishioners are really very busy.  We are working on a plan to maintain the website on a more current schedule and ask your indulgence. In order to make the site even more interesting, we are in the process of redesigning it as yu will see in the coming weeks....please send us your comments as we progress.

Rev. Andrzej Tenus
