Message from Father Pergjini:

Mensaje del Padre Pergjini:

It is Mother’s Day! What a beautiful moment to thank, to pray, and to love our dear mothers, grandmothers, godmothers living and deceased! I wanted to share with you a very moving moment of my experience in the parochial school which is one of my priestly joys is to spend time with the students of our parochial school. It was my first assignment at our Lady of Mount Carmel. That day I was scheduled to be with the third grade students. They always were very happy to see me, and I in turn was delighted to be with them. That day I decided to do something that I never experienced with them before. I told them that today we were going to picture ourselves as if we were in the presence of a beautiful place with the Christ, Mary and Joseph. I said to them that they were free to picture whomever person they would like to have with them. Also they could ask questions or express their desires to Christ. After they were set and ready to take this imaginary journey, it was amazing to me to see those innocents faces, beautiful faces with closed eyes and relaxed tiny bodies. It was a deep and profound silence that I felt absorbed into that moving scene. I had my own conversation with Christ, Mary and Joseph. I asked Jesus to guide and lead all the students and their families. Suddenly, Sam, one of the students who unfortunately had lost his dear mother a few weeks before, broke the silence. In his tiny face I saw tears. He said with a trembling voice: Father Pergjini I asked Jesus if I could see my mom again. I miss my mom. And then, he continued: I pictured my mom next to Jesus. I wanted to touch and speak to her, but I couldn’t. Tears. I saw other students with teary eyes. Silence mixed with pain. The eye contact between him and me was too strong. I try to hold my tears, and I painfully cried within my heart. After a few moments Sam with his weak voice said: Thank you for feeling sorry for me. Silence. Again tears. The students who were next to him moved from their seats and hugged him. One of the girls with her tiny hands dried his tears. She said to him: Your mom is with Jesus. She is with Him. We love you Sam. A smile came into his eyes; the joy of friendship warmed his heart. The bell of the school rang. It was time for lunch. To my surprise none of them moved from their seats. They were looking at Sam and at me. These were moments of hope, love, moments filled with Christ’s presence. How powerful is that presence when we experience pain. They and I experienced the pain of Sam, but Christ made it possible to bring his joy and peace. I did not speak much that day. It was Christ that spoke to our hearts. And now, in the spirit of a humble prayer, in the spirit of silence and peace, filled with love and gratitude for our mothers, as I place all living and deceased mothers, the Sam’s mother, my dear mom, before Christ our Savior , our blessed Mother Mary, and Saint Joseph! We love you, we thank you and God bless you! Happy mother’s Day!

Es el día de la madre! ¡ Qué hermoso momento gracias, orar y amar a nuestros estimadas madres, abuelas, madrinas viven y difuntos! Quería compartir con ustedes una muy conmovedor momento de mi experiencia en la escuela parroquial que es uno de mis placeres sacerdotales es pasar tiempo con los estudiantes de nuestra escuela parroquial. Fue mi primera asignación en nuestra Señora del Monte Carmelo. Ese día estaba programado para estar con los estudiantes de tercer grado. Eran siempre muy felices de verme, y a su vez me ha encantado estar con ellos. Ese día me decidí a hacer algo que nunca experimenté con ellos antes. Les dije que hoy íbamos a nosotros mismos como si estuviéramos en presencia de un hermoso lugar con el Cristo, María y José. Les dije que eran gratis a quien les gustaría tener con ellos de la persona. También podrían hacer preguntas o expresar sus deseos a Cristo. Después de que fueran set y con ganas de emprender este viaje imaginario, fue increíble para mí ver esas caras inocentes, caras hermosas con ojos cerrados y relajados de pequeños cuerpos. Era un silencio profundo y profundo que sentí absorbida en esa escena conmovedora. Tuve mi propia conversación con Cristo, María y José. Pedí a Jesús para orientar y dirigir todos los estudiantes y sus familias. De repente, Sam, uno de los estudiantes que desafortunadamente perdieron a su querida madre unas semanas antes, rompió el silencio. En su pequeño rostro vi lágrimas. Dijo con una voz temblorosa: padre Pergjini preguntó a Jesús si pude ver mi mamá otra vez. Echo de menos mi mamá. Y luego, continuó: Foto de mi mamá al lado de Jesús. Yo quería tocar y hablar con ella, pero no podía. Lágrimas. Vi a otros estudiantes con ojos llorosos. Silencio mezclado con dolor. El contacto con los ojos entre él y yo era demasiado fuerte. Tratar de contener mis lágrimas, y lloré dolorosamente dentro de mi corazón. Después de unos momentos Sam con su voz dijo: Gracias por sentir lástima por mí. Silencio. Otra vez lágrimas. Los estudiantes que estaban junto a él se movió de sus asientos y lo abrazaban. Una de las chicas con sus pequeñas manos secó sus lágrimas. Ella le dijo: tu mamá está con Jesús. Ella está con él. Te queremos Sam. Una sonrisa entró en sus ojos; la alegría de la amistad había calentado su corazón. Sonó la campana de la escuela. Era hora de almuerzo. Para mi sorpresa, ninguno de ellos se trasladó desde su asiento. Buscaban a Sam y a mí. Eran momentos de esperanza, amor, momentos llenos de la presencia de Cristo. Lo potente que es esa presencia cuando experimentamos dolor. Ya experimentó el dolor de Sam, pero Cristo hizo posible traer su gozo y paz. No hablo mucho ese día. Era el Cristo que habló a nuestros corazones. Y ahora, en el espíritu de un humilde oración, en el espíritu de silencio y paz, lleno de amor y gratitud para nuestras madres, como colocar todas las madres vivos y difuntas, madre de Sam, mi querida mamá, antes de Cristo nuestro Salvador, nuestra Bendita Madre María y San José! Te queremos, gracias y Dios los bendiga! Día de la madre feliz!
