Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS

The whole purpose of Lent and its disciplines, prayer, fasting and almsgiving, was to prepare us for Easter, when we live and celebrate the Paschal Mysteries. This time is about recognizing the presence of the Risen Jesus in our midst. Failure to recognize the presence of God among us, through Jesus, is precisely the root of all sin. Let us fully dive into this wonderful season, which helps us better appreciate Sunday Mass. Let us live these days intensely, preparing well for the renewal of our baptism and confirmation — as individuals and communities — on Pentecost. We must be re-born of water and Spirit.

The archdiocesan Mass for consecrated life jubilarians was celebrated by Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS, at St. Anthony de Padua Church on April 17. As this was the first post-pandemic congratulatory liturgy, jubilarians from the past four years – 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023, were recognized. The religious also renewed their vows, praying, “I wholeheartedly renew and confirm my religious vows to follow Jesus in poverty, chastity and obedience in my religious community. Loving Father, I ask you for the grace to remain faithful to my call, responding generously and joyfully to my vocation.”
