Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Spiritual Heartburn and Typology
The disciples recounted how their hearts were burning within them when Jesus opened the Scriptures to
them. One of the many beautiful elements of the Faith is Biblical typology, the fulfillment of elements of
the Old Testament in the New Testament. Common examples are Noah’s ark prefiguring the Church, the
Flood prefiguring Baptism, and Moses prefiguring Jesus Christ. As we rejoice throughout this blessed
Easter Season, let us pray with the Old Testament and see how Christ fulfills what is found in it. St.
Augustine wrote, “In the Old Testament the New Testament is concealed; in the New Testament the Old
Testament is revealed." Through typology we can experience spiritual heartburn, the best kind, and more
fully appreciate God’s plan in salvation history.
So many parishioners find each of our parish’s myparish app so helpful in getting
updated information, messages, bulletins, calendars, and spiritual renewal
items. It has become an important way to get important information about
illnesses, emergencies, and death notices and visitation information quickly to as
many as possible.
Consider becoming a part of the myparish app community.
It’s FREE. Go to your app store to download the app, place in the zip code, click on
the parish, and you’re in! There are also cards in the vestibules which also give
information about myparish app.
For those who currently use the app, please remember to update your app every
so often. To do that, click on the button to ‘change parish’ and then click back on
your home parish. It’s that simple.
Blessings on our First Communicants from St. Vincent who are receiving
Jesus in Eucharist at the 10am Mass this Sunday!

Easter Joy for Everyday Life
More than just a day, the Church gives us a seven-week Easter season to celebrate. Yet sometimes our
everyday lives feel so heavy that celebration is not a part of them. Critical illness in the family, loss of a
job, disappointment in a relationship and the burdens of everyday life can make it a challenge to feel
particularly joyful – even in the Easter season.
But the joy we are being invited into this season is beyond what we see in our everyday lives. It's true that
Jesus says “Come to me and bring me your burdens” but we usually can’t believe it. Maybe we don’t
want to believe it. If I really allow Jesus to come into my heart the way he wants to, will he ask me to
change my life in ways that are too hard? How do I share the chaos of my life with Jesus? If I keep him at
arm’s length, my life might be difficult, but at least my problems are familiar. What would it cost me to let
go and change my life?
We know our own faults and failings so well. Too well. We begin to believe that Jesus loves the way we
love – with all of our human limits. How could Jesus love us and accept us the way we are right now?
Maybe when we fix a few things about our lives, love our spouse a little better, stop being so critical of
family members, stop drinking, stop nagging, love a little more… remember, as we journey fixing what
needs fixing in our lives, Jesus continues to love us. (from Creighton Online Ministries)
