  • Bible Answers: Pope remains respected figure

    “Is the Pope still important? I am not Catholic but I am intrigued by all the secular media attention given to the conclave. Does the Bible help guide my thoughts on this?”—Callie

  • Pope leads Easter Mass in St. Peter's Square

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis celebrated his first Easter Sunday Mass as pontiff in St. Peter's Square, packed by joyous pilgrims, tourists and Romans and bedecked by spring flowers.

    Wearing cream-colored vestments, Francis strode onto the esplanade in front of St. Peter's Basilica and took his place at an altar set up under a white canopy.

    Faithful had already filled the square hours before the Mass began in mid-morning, and throughout the service streams of people kept flocking there for his speech and blessing, traditionally delivered after the Mass from the central balcony of the basilica.

    By mid-ceremony, some 250,000 people had turned out, the Vatican said.

    Francis bowed his head in reflection as the Gospel was sung in Latin, recounting what Christians believe is the central mystery of their faith — the resurrection of Jesus after this death by crucifixion.

    After heavy rain battered Rome during the night, more was forecast. But Sunday saw sunny skies alternate with clouds.

  • LAJC to host Passover Seder

    The Los Alamos Jewish Center will hold its annual community Passover Seder at 5:30 p.m. March 26 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
    The event is open to anyone interested in attending.
    The Seder is a ceremonial dinner filled with rituals designed to celebrate the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt.
    The Seder, which is Hebrew for “order,” ushers in the week of Pesach, in which Jews refrain from eating chametz.
    The celebration of Passover commemorates the delivery of the Jews from years of slavery, ultimately culminating in the birth of the “Torah,” the “Five Books of Moses,” at Mount Sinai.
    Thus, for Jews all over the world, the annual time of renewal is an opportunity to look at themselves and society through the lens of the slave, once again.
    It is a time to let go of all prejudice, intolerance, closed mindedness and limited thinking. It is a time for renewed inspiration to help create a world that is free for all peoples and all religions.
    This year, Rabbi Jack Shlachter of the Los Alamos Jewish Center, will lead the Community Seder as an evening of ritual, dedicated to the memory of the Exodus from Mitzrayim, or Egypt, and the freedom and respect for everyone.
