Riflessione del mese di marzo
UNA RELIQUIA DELLA PASSIONE
Se dovessi scegliere
una reliquia della tua Passione,
prenderei proprio quel catino
colmo d'acqua sporca.
Girare il mondo con quel recipiente
e ad ogni piede
cingermi dell'asciugatoio
e curvarmi giù in basso,
non alzando mai la testa oltre il polpaccio
per non distinguere
i nemici dagli amici,
e lavare i piedi del vagabondo,
dell'ateo, del drogato,
del carcerato, dell'omicida,
di chi non mi saluta più,
di quel compagno per cui non prego mai,
in silenzio
finché tutti abbiano capito nel mio
il tuo amore.
VI INVITIAMO A RINGRAZIARE I SACERDOTI E
DIACONO per tutto il loro enorme lavoro. Giovedi’

Es asi como en Esta Semana Mayor , Jesús nos llama a
unirnos en comunión con Él, transformando nuestra vida ,
en el hombre Nuevo , en el Resucitado , limpio de Pecado ,
lleno de luz y sobretodo con un Corazón entero , integro y
totalmente puro para el servicio del Señor .
Cada uno Experimenta, de diferentes maneras, situaciones
adversas en la vida; Cada uno se desestabiliza al Pasar por
una crisis familiar , economica , Divorcio , perdida de un
Ser querido ; todas estas sitaciones nos llevan al borde del
abismo , pero es alli mismo donde debemos poner un alto y
recibir al Señor , a través de la Oración y la meditación ,
donde recordaremos esta Pasión de Cristo, y sera para
cada uno de nosotros como un balsamo que aliviara el
dolor de nuestros Corazones.

DE JESUS
LO QUE LLEVO A JESÚS A LA CRUZ FUE SU VOLUNTAD
DE QUE LAS PERSONAS FUERAN FELICES , ES DECIR , DE
QUE SE CONSTRUYERA EL REINO DE DIOS. EN LA CRUZ ,
DIOS SE MUESTRA COMO ES: POR AMOR ESTA DISPUESTO A TODO . NO LE INTERESA LA HONRA : SI ASÍ
FUERA, NO HUBIERA TOMADO LA CRUZ. NO LE INTERESA RECIBIR , SINO DAR, OFRECECERSE AL MUNDO.
LA RESPUESTA DE LOS CRISTIANOS DEBE SER, AQUÍ
ESTAMOS , SEÑOR, PARA AMAR COMO TU AMASTE.
AMEN!!!!!!!!!

“HOSSANA AL HIJO DE DAVID.BENDITO EL QUE VIENE EN
NOMBRE DEL SEÑOR . EL REY DE ISRAEL, HOSSANA EN
EL CIELO ”
El dia de hoy la Iglesia comienza la festividad de la Semana
Santa , donde conmemoramos la Pasión , muerte y Resurreción de Cristo Jesús.
La manera como se nos ha mostrado Jesús no fue solo
quedandonos en la Cruz , fue tambien recibiendo la vida a
través de su Resurreción gloriosa , y la consumación o
realización del trabajo en la tierra; Siendo un fiel cumplidor de su misión como hijo de Dios ,servidor humilde y obediente al Padre.
Jesús siempre deseó hacer la voluntad del Padre y lo hizo
con valor , pues tenia la capacidad para ayudar a los mas
necesitados y tambien de enfrentar a quienes lo
detractaban , pues sabia que la palabra de su Padre ,
transformaba y renovaba vidas.

KNIGHTS of COLUMBUS CELEBRATES 50th ANNIVERSARY
Joseph B. Cavallaro Council #4884 Knights of Columbus is celebrating its 50th Anniversary of Columbianism in the
Bensonhurst area, and its affiliation with Saint Athanasius Church, its home Parish. Cavallaro Council Knights of Columbus has always been a friend to St. A's Parish and has donated to many of the youth programs, the Church, and
School over the past 50 years. To continue doing this they must raise funds. They normally do this on their own and "inhouse". As a part of the celebration of their 50th Anniversary, they are sponsoring a SUPER RAFFLE trip to Disney World in Orlando Florida. They are happy to announce that Mr. & Mrs. Michael DeLuca have donated 25% of the
cost of this trip to the Council; thank you Mike & Fran! This raffle is LIMITED TO 250 TICKETS. The winner will receive
an ALL EXPENSES PAID TRIP FOR 4 TO DISNEYWORLD for 5 DAYS. Ticket price is $50.00. Please help us reach
our goal so we may continue our Charitable works in Columbianism. Please buy or help us sell these raffle tickets. The
Council looks forward to seeing many of St' A's parishioners join us on April 11, 2010 at Sirico's Catering Hall for the
Dinner & Dance Celebration. Tickets to the dinner & dance are $50.00 pp. For more information about the 50th Anniversary Celebration and raffles, contact Bob Vezzuso (usually attends the 10:00 am Mass) or Billy Valentine (usually
attends the 11:30am Mass) or call the K. of C. at 718-259-5080
