Fourth Sunday of Lent
Jesus, through his suffering and death upon the
cross, won forgiveness for our sins and
reconciled us to God the Father. He calls us to
go forth to share God’s love and forgiveness
with others by seeking to foster unity, peace and
healing in our workplaces, local community,
among our friends and family and in our homes.

MINISTRY MINUTES
Praying the Stations with Saint John Paul II
Reflection ~ Robin Black-Rubenstein
On Good Friday (3/26/16) the major service which
commemorates the Passion of our Lord is held at 3 o’clock
in the afternoon. Additionally Stations of the Cross are held
at 6 o’clock that same evening. Our chapel is not available at
that time and so the Stations of the Cross are held in our
main Church.
Happy fourth week of Lent! As we progress through these
weeks of Lent, our weekly readings progress with us. Like all
worthwhile endeavors that we work towards, we look back to
the beginning to see how far we have come and we look
forward to the goal; see where we will finish. In the first
reading the famine was over for the Israelites, they were
entering their newly promised homeland. They no longer
needed the manna to survive and so the manna stopped. The
Israelites are completing their long journey and are looking
forward in hope to the days to come. What are you looking
forward to when you accomplish your Lenten promises?
For this service we use the Stations of the Cross that were
written by Saint John Paul II when he celebrated the Way of
the Cross at the coliseum in Rome in 1991. At that
celebration Saint John Paul II omitted some of the traditional
stations and added others so each station was based in
Scripture. This is a wonderful version of the Stations of the
Cross to use on Good Friday because our personal
meditations on the Lord’s Passion are based on the Sacred
Word.
In celebrating the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday we
come to know of God’s love and mercy for us and we
understand better the terrible suffering of Jesus. We enter
into Christ’s passion in an effort to make ourselves more
conscience of our failure to be both fully and divinely human.
Please consider observing Good Friday by walking with our
Lord on his Way of the Cross. Observing His Passion on
Good Friday will help to make His Resurrection on Easter
Sunday even more of a celebration.
Lent is hard work – Happy Lent!
~Deacon Dan
Thank you
Bona thanks to all who made the St. Boniface Koinonia
retreat possible. May the gifts of the Holy Spirit continue the
work that has begun.
Way of the Cross
On Saturday, March 19, at 6:00 p.m. a group of young
Hispanic people from different parishes, including our
own, will present in theater form the Way of the Cross. We
invite all to this prayerful reflection on the vigil of Palm
Sunday.
St. Boniface RCIA-RCIC
Monday, March 7 @ 6:30 p.m., Acorn Room
Topic: New Testament Commandments
Presenter: Justin Goebel
In 1 Corinthians Paul tells the Corinthians that new things are
replacing old ones. Paul encourages his readers to be
reconciled with God. Paul is looking forward as the Israelites
did and as we do. We then hear the familiar story of the
Prodigal Son. In the final paragraph we hear the father say to
the jealous son “My son, you are here with me always;
everything I have is yours, But now we must celebrate and
rejoice, because your brother was dead and has come to life
again; he was lost and has been found.” The father sees the
need for celebration and is joyful that the lost son is
recommitting himself to the family.
In these stories of hope and reconciliation we see the two
purposes of Lent; some will come to know Christ for the first
time, and others will recommit themselves to Him. Keep in
your prayers those on the Koinonia retreat this weekend, our
RCIA catechumens and candidates, and all who are striving
forward these last weeks of Lent to achieve their goal.

Father and son volunteer in Guatemala
In early February, parishioner Scott Paul and his son, Zachary Paul, an eighth grader at St. Boniface School, traveled to Adonai
International Ministry (AIM) in Canilla, Guatemala. AIM was established by the Ficker family from the Marine, Illinois area.
The mission sits in the highlands of rural Guatemala, in the midst of the Mayan Quiche Indians.
The pair went to help aid in the construction of a hospital that began in 2015. It’s the hope of the mission to have the first
phase of the hospital open to receive patients in early 2016. This phase will expand the service clinics to include: an emergency
room, three clinical suites, a dental suite, general laboratory, pharmacy, an x-ray room and a prayer room. AIM currently has
three weekly clinics in the villages of and surrounding Canilla and San Andres. These outpatient clinics focus on four main areas:
general consults, chronic condition maintenance, prenatal care and a nutrition program for both children and families in need.
The primary patient population is comprised of women and children.
One of Scott and Zachary’s jobs included setting up all the equipment needed to complete the 20 hour straight concrete pour for
the ceiling of the surgical operatories. Zachary spent many hours busting up
rock using a 14 pound sledgehammer. This rock will be used in the concrete
mixture. Construction in the mountains of a third world country is much
more labor intensive than here in the United States as most jobs are done by
man power instead of machine power.
The entire experience was very rewarding and educational for Scott and
Zachary. They are already discussing their next trip to Guatemala where the
heart of AIM finds its foundation in Matthew 25:40 "...whatever you did for
one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did unto Me."

In our Second Reading from St. Paul’s second letter to the
Corinthians, Paul says, “So we are ambassadors for Christ, as if
God were appealing through us. We implore you on behalf of
Christ, be reconciled to God.” There are two important points
intended for us in those two sentences, especially during our
Lenten journeys.
First, we are to be “ambassadors on behalf of Christ.” Then, as
now, an ambassador was one who represented a ruler, at that
time most likely a king, in dealing with others. Paul’s meaning is
that we are called to represent our King, the Lord, here and
now in our dealings with others. We do things representing our
Lord and Savior, and we need to recognize both that fact and
the responsibility which goes with it. It is what being a steward
means — someone who is placed in charge of gifts which
come to us from God and which are to be used in God’s
behalf. That should be part of our Lenten efforts.
The second sentence reminds us that we need to be reconciled
with God. Note that it does not say that God is to be
reconciled with us. The duty lies with us and needs to be
precipitated by us. At this time as Easter approaches,
reconciliation-confession is important and necessary. At a
recent general audience Pope Francis declared, “I can’t be
baptized two or three or four times, but I can go to confession
often and regularly, and when I go to confession, I renew the
grace of Baptism.”

Lenten Regulations
Abstinence -- Catholics over 14 years of age are bound to the
obligation of abstinence. Abstinence is to be observed on Ash
Wednesday and on all Fridays of Lent. On days of abstinence,
meat may not be used at all.
Fast -- Catholics over 18 and up to the beginning of their 60th
year are bound to the obligation of fasting. Ash Wednesday and
Good Friday are the days of fasting. On these days, only one full
meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain
strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but
together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between
meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices
are allowed.
Regarding other weekdays of Lent, participation in daily Mass and
the voluntary observance of fasting is recommended.

St. Boniface appreciates your gifts to the church. We would
like to suggest some ways to make your gift giving easier:
•
Easy and convenient! EFT is an automatic withdrawal
from your checking account on a monthly basis. There
are no service fee charges! All we need is a copy of your
cancelled check and your authorization form for an
amount to be given automatically. Once a month giving is
as easy as paying your light bill!
•
Traditional weekly contribution envelopes provided by
the church. This allows us to give you credit for the gifts
you give to the church. We have no way to credit
anonymous gifts of cash.
•
Are you visiting or have not yet registered? We will send
you a thank you letter for your contribution (if you give
by check) that can be used for tax purposes. Cash
donations are more difficult unless a name and address
are included with the gift.
