Dear Parish Family of Holy Trinity,

Joyful Easter blessings to all of you!

The readings and Gospel this past weekend reminded us of three important points:

First, we learn that the door of faith is opened to the whole world. I know that is something that sounds like a given, but the first debate in our Church was whether Jesus’ sacrifice included the salvation of gentiles (non-Jewish people). We will find out more at next weekend’s readings; and like the Titanic movie, I’m sure you already now the ending by now, but it is worth the read.

Second, we receive hope knowing that God’s dwelling is with the human race; and when we join Him in Heaven, He will make all things new. There will be no more pain, suffering or death.

Third, we are reminded that it is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. I know a first question we might ask is: Why? Whether it is a small annoyance or a horrible tragedy, suffering is not pleasant.

God is perfect, all-knowing, and created a perfect universe. Like a good father, God created a universe with self-correcting measures, which are necessary for us to be rescued from sin and formed in His image so we can dwell with Him. To be able to dwell in God’s love and friendship, God created us with free will. When free will was used to disobey God, sin entered the world. It had horrible consequences that affected our relationship with God, even till this day. How many of us struggle to love God with all our heart and soul? Or have the confidence and patience in God’s salvation plan for us? Do we obey or give God the respect or gratitude as our Father?

Isn’t it interesting that parents form children in the perceived image of what is important or good to the parents? Sometimes it’s easy for parents if the child is obedient and behaves. Sometimes it is with sacrifice and headaches when the child is stubborn. God our Father is forming us so we can dwell with Him in Heaven. He is not only forming us through the good times, but also through hardships. When we place our trust in God during hardships, He forms us and brings forth faith and trust in His promise that He will make all things new.  He is reminding us that we depend and rely on Him as our source of all that is good. He reminds us that we cannot journey alone in this world and that it is only with the help and through the Sacrifice of Jesus, that He will help and carry us through the hardships of this world.

On behalf of Fr. Reynold, Fr. John, Deacon Randy and our Staff, have a joyful Easter Season!

In Christ,

Alonso Rosado

An Invitation to All Holy Trinity Families

At Confirmation this past Wednesday, Bishop Thanh Thai Nguyen encouraged everyone present to be active participants in our Faith and learn to share our Faith with the world. Heeding this call, we want to extend this invitation to all families of Holy Trinity. We will begin with the following:

Every week we will select one or two reflections from you and post them in this weekly email.

Here's how it will work:

1) Read the readings for the coming weekend . Here is the link to this coming weekend readings.

2) Discuss them with your family through the week. Begin your discussion with a prayer such as: In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Our Father; Hail Mary; and/or Gory be. For those of you who want to delve deeper you can read the footnotes of The New American Bible, Revised Edition (NABRE) (aka the Catholic Bible). Or you can also use the technique called Lectio Divina. Click here to learn about Lectio Divina.

3) By Friday, send us a write-up (or video) of what the Holy Spirit revealed to you and your family through the readings. We are not looking for a theological dissertation, just your plain ol’ experience of what was revealed to you through the readings. There is no minimum number of words, but please keep it to less than 500 words.

Send it to: and
Write in the Subject Line: Reflection

4) Come to church on Sunday to increase your understanding of God and to nourish your soul through the Holy Eucharist.

We will not publish anonymous submissions. You can sign your submission as follows:
Joe, Mary, Becky, and Rick Smith
