Nun devotes 11 years to archdiocesan Hispanics

Sister Angela Erevia, MCDP, was told that in her new position as director of Hispanic ministry for the Diocese of Dodge City in Kansas she will be a big fish in a little pond.

The 74-year-old nun, who has served Hispanics in the Archdiocese of Omaha for the past 11 years, said that doesn't intimidate her.

"I know how to dig, so I'll dig a bigger pond and put more fish in there and won't be so lonely," she told the Catholic Voice. "It's about building community, and the fish is a symbol of Christ."

Because of Christ's resurrection, we are assured a future beyond the grave

Recently Pope Benedict XVI affirmed the new life that all Christians share by participating in the resurrection of Jesus. This gives us cause for joy no matter the pain we suffer or the difficulties that surround us at times. Nothing and no one can take away from us the hope that we carry within us because of the assurance we have from Jesus about life beyond the grave. By his death and resurrection, Jesus has definitively triumphed over evil and death itself. This is the reason we are able to live with physical and emotional pain, and all kinds of defeats and losses in our lives.
