Our return to God for Blessings on
Sunday, March 13, 2016
Our sincere thanks to all who have volunteered their time &
talent to help the parish in any capacity in this past week.
Stewardship Thought: “I tell you, Peter, before the cock
crows this day, you will deny three times that you know me.
“ (Luke 22:34) How many times have you heard someone
make a disparaging comment about Jesus or the Catholic
faith? How do you react? Do you remain quiet not to cause a
disturbance or worst yet, because you don’t want your friends
or family to think negatively about you? Pray for the courage
to speak up and enter into a respectful dialogue.

 FROM THE ASSOCIATE PASTOR’S DESK 
Dear Parishioners,
Christology is a course of theological studies that concerns its
endeavors to understanding as best it can, Jesus, the Christ and the
Man. Our Christian doctrine defined centuries ago that as far as study
and faith will give us opportunity to know, Jesus the Christ, is one
person, the second person of the Holy Trinity and is uniquely at one
and the same time, Divine and Human, Son of God and Son of Mary.
Our tendency oftentimes is to highlight the divinity of Jesus to the
exclusion of his all too real humanity. Paul goes to the heart of the
matter when explaining to his fledgling church community, that Jesus
was equal with God but at the same time was human as he and they
were: as human as you and I are. And most likely Paul’s all too human
church at the time wondered why an Almighty Person would allow
himself to be slaughtered as he was, just like a common criminal. And
we can only counter that bafflement with Jesus’ own words: “No
greater love hath a man than he lay his life down for his friend.”
Without a lot of theological sophistication, Paul, but with uncanny
insight, described Jesus as taking the form of a slave, coming in
human likeness, found human in appearance,… humbled….., obedient
to the point of death…. that …. Because of this, God highly exulted
him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name…
LORD … and the GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.
Pastoral Council
Our lives are filled with many exhilarating and glorious moments -weddings, babies, graduations, ordinations, jobs, advancements,
wellness, health etc. A closer review of these experiences notes that
anything worth having is worth working for.
Paul was simply telling his converts that all of Jesus’ ministry and
actions showed that, deep within the recesses of this truly human
person, was divinity which would spare no cost in restoring to the
universe, most especially its now fellow human beings, the perfection
with which it was originally made, but weakened by sinister forces.
The almighty allowed those sinister forces the competence to battle
creation’s freedom to choose and love and be loyal.

JOTI: Just Once, Try It
On Palm Sunday the Christian journeys with Jesus in spirit to the
destination of great sacrifice before glory. Fr. Donald, a seminary
professor, often remarked that the good Christian disciple’s life, if
lived with sincerity, would have moments of peace and happiness, but
be mingled with a lifetime of slow martyrdoms, Following Jesus will
always entail repercussions in the midst of the cultures in which we
find ourselves living. There will be many Palm Sundays during the
lifetime of Christian commitment, mingled with many Good Fridays.
Easter remains the promise, though, for the faithful disciple, and the
reason for Discipleship. And the question is: it this all worth living
for?
May Lenten endeavors strengthen our fidelity to Jesus and his gospel
of forgiveness, mercy, compassion - love of neighbor, especially the
poor.
Sincerely,
Fr. Bernie

HATRED: "As long as we live in hatred for our neighbors we
are hating our own selves, because hatred deprives us of divine
charity. How blind are we not to see that with the sword of
hatred for our neighbors we are killing ourselves."
St. Catherine of Siena
EASTER OFFERING: Thanks to all of you over these years,
our capital improvements are done and paid for. A few pledges
are still being completed. You may have noticed that our
Sunday offerings have diminished over the months. That has
left us struggling to keep up with all our ordinary operating
expenses. We hope that our Easter collection and a successful
Festival will bring us even when we end the fiscal year in
June. Please be as generous as you can with your Easter gift to
the parish. Thank you for what you have done and whatever
you can do. Fr. Bob
FESTIVAL NEWS: Send your tickets into the parish
office for a chance to win the next Early Bird drawing
on Wednesday, March 23. Please remember to write
the seller’s name on your tickets.
Pope Francis Against the Death Penalty
On February 21, Pope Francis reiterated the Church’s
opposition to the death penalty, noting that the current Year of
Mercy “is a propitious occasion to promote in the world every
more mature forms of respect for life and dignity of every
person. Even the criminal keeps the right to life, the gift of
God.”
Likewise, John Paul 11 challenged followers of Christ to
be “unconditionally pro-life.” noting that “the dignity of
human life must never be taken away, even ion the case of
someone who has done great evil. Modern society has the
means of protecting itself, without definitively denying
criminals the chance to reform.”
“On this Good Friday, a day when we recall our Savior’s
own execution,” the US Catholic Bishops “appeal to all people
of good will, and especially Catholics, to work to end the death
penalty.” For more information go to the Catholic Mobilizing
Network at www.catholicsmobilizing.org.

MISS BEHAVIOR
REQUESTS YOUR PRESENCE
Dear Miss Behavior:
Here it is Palm Sunday, and soon we will celebrate Easter. Do
you have any advice on what I should be doing this week?
Sincerely,
Justa Parishioner
Dear JP:
This is the high point of the liturgical year, and I hope that you
will participate fully in this week’s liturgies—with your
presence, prayer, singing, and joy. Today, Palm Sunday, we
observe Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and receive
blessed palms; soon the mood changes as we listen to the
account of Jesus’ passion and death from the Gospel of Luke.
Then, on Holy Thursday morning (Tuesday in our diocese) in
cathedrals throughout the world, bishops will bless the holy
oils to be used in our parishes during the next twelve months.
If you can get to the Chrism Mass, do so.
On Holy Thursday we begin the Triduum, the three-day
observance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The
Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper is the only Mass
celebrated in our parishes on Holy Thursday. This is the night
when we commemorate the installation of the Eucharist. It is
the night for the Washing of Feet. It is the night when, at the
end of Mass, the tabernacle is empty, the sanctuary lamp is
extinguished, our priest transfers the Holy Eucharist to the
altar of repose, and parishioners gather during the evening for
adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
The drama continues on Good Friday as we listen to the
account of Jesus’ passion and death, this time from the Gospel
of John. We venerate the cross, and we pray for people
throughout the world.
The Easter Vigil takes place on Holy Saturday after sunset.
The priest lights the paschal candle from the new fire, and we
process into the dark church with our candles that have been lit
from the paschal candle. We hear the Easter Proclamation, and
we know that Christ has triumphed over death. Bells ring as
we sing the Gloria. Our new converts are baptized (if they
have not already been baptized) and confirmed
There is so much drama, so much beauty, and so much
meaning to these Holy Week liturgies. Let us all be present
and let us all participate fully in the riches that have been
prepared for us.
Sincerely,
Miss Behavior
A Tweet From POPE FRANCIS: God is truly rich in mercy
and extends it abundantly upon those who appeal to Him with
a sincere heart.

GOOD FRIDAY COLLECTION for the HOLY
LAND: Pope Francis has asked our parish to support
Christians in the Holy Land. The Good Friday collection gives
use and Catholics around the world a chance to do that. Your
contribution to the Pontifical Good Friday Collection makes
you an instrument of peace in a troubled land. The Church in
the Middle Easter conducts parish ministry, provides Catholic
education, feeds the hungry, builds housing for Christians,
maintains shrines and operates refugee centers. The political,
religious and military challenges there are more complex than
ever. The wars, unrest and instability have been especially
hard on Christians. Like Simon of Cyrene, help carry Christ's
cross there by supporting Christians in the Holy Land through
the Good Friday Collection. Thank you.
Moments With Miss Martha: Faith in God’s goodness and
mercy puts a song in your heart.
We welcome our newest Saint,
baptized into Christ Jesus by water
and the Holy Spirit:
Aubrey Morgan
