Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
A Valentine's Day Blessing
Love, the Bible says, is patient.
May you never lose your temper with
the one you love,
but be patient as God was
with his people.
Love, the Bible says,
is never boastful.
May you cherish your love
as a masterpiece of God,
and not as a trophy to be displayed.
Love, the Bible says, is never selfish.
May you always be generous to your
love, with time, with affection,
with encouragement
and assistance.
For as Christ loved the Church,
so we should love our beloved.
As Mary was devoted to her Son,
so we should be devoted
to those we love.
And as God loved and
sacrificed for the world,
so may we always be
to those we love.
Amen.

Welcome to St. Therese Parish · Appleton, WI
“Notes from Fr. Bill”
World Day of the Sick
On February 11, we celebrate the World Day of the
Sick, an event that coincides with the apparition of Our
Lady of Lourdes. The objective of this day is to create
consciousness among the Christian community on the
importance of the ministry of caring for the sick. Often
times in our lives and families this “care” is given quietly and
lovingly; many of you have been „caregivers‟ with your children
when they were sick, with an aging mother or father, or with a
spouse.
In his message for this day, Pope Benedict cites the parable of
the Good Samaritan who took pity on a man, left for dead on the
road following an attack by thieves, and took him to heal his
wounds. At the end of the parable, Jesus said: “Go and do likewise.” With these words he is also addressing us. Jesus exhorts
us to bend over the physical and mental wounds of so many of
our brothers and sisters whom we meet on the highways of the
world. He helps us to understand that with God‟s grace, accepted and lived out in our daily life, the experience of sickness
and suffering can become a school of hope.
In his encyclical Spe salvi, Pope Benedict affirms that “It is
not by sidestepping or fleeing from suffering that we are
healed, but rather by our capacity for accepting it, maturing
through it and finding meaning through union with Christ, who
suffered with infinite love.”
We pray for our sick: “O most loving Virgin of Lourdes,
Mother of God and our mother! Filled with affliction and with
tears flowing from our eyes, we turn to you in the bitter hours of
sickness so that your motherly love may pour abundantly on us
the treasures of your mercy. …obtain from your Divine Son
Jesus Christ the health we wish, if that will be to the greater
glory of God…Amen.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
Comforter of the afflicted, pray for us.
Health of the infirm, pray for us.
Jornada Mundial del Enfermo
El próximo 11 de febrero, se llevará a cabo la
Jornada Mundial del Enfermo que coincide con la
celebración de la primera aparición de Nuestra Señora
de Lourdes. El objetivo de este día es sensibilizar a
toda la comunidad cristiana sobre la importancia del
servicio pastoral en la salud. Cuántas familias dan este
servicio en silencio, atendiendo a un hijo enfermo, los
padres en su vejez, o un esposo/a.
El Papa Benedicto, en su mensaje para la Jornada Mundial
del Enfermo, cita la parábola del buen Samaritano, donde
éste se apiada del pobre hombre al que los ladrones dejaron
medio muerto en el camino, llevándoselo y curando sus
heridas. Al final de la parábola, Jesús dice: “Ve y haz tú los
mismo.” Esto nos exhorta a inclinarnos hacia las heridas
del cuerpo y el espíritu de nuestros hermanos alrededor del
mundo. Nos ayuda también a comprender que con la gracia
de Dios, la experiencia de la enfermedad y del sufrimiento
puede llegar a ser escuela de esperanza.
En su encíclica Spe salvi el Papa Benedicto afirma: “lo
que cura al hombre no es esquivar el sufrimiento y huir ante
el dolor, sino la capacidad de aceptar la tribulación, madurar
en ella y encontrar en ella un sentido mediante la unión con
Cristo, que sufrió con amor infinito.”
Oremos por nuestros enfermos: “Oh amabilísima Virgen
de Lourdes, Madre de Dios y Madre nuestra! Llenos de
aflicción y con lágrimas fluyendo de los ohos, acudimos en
las horas amargas de la enfermedad a tu corazón maternal,
para pedirte que derrames a manos llenas el tesoro de tus
misericordias sobre nosotros. …alcánzale de tu Divino
Hijo Jesucristo la deseada salud, si ha de ser para mayor
gloria de Dios …Amen.”
Virgen de Lourdes, ruega por nosotros.
Consuelo de los afligidos, ruega por nosotros.
Salud de los enfermos, ruega por nosotros.

Reaching Out to the Homebound
Imagine being homebound. You are unable to
attend Sunday Mass. For some people within the Catholic
Diocese, this is a reality. The Bishop‟s Appeal makes it
possible for the homebound to celebrate God‟s Good News
with thousands of Catholics across the airwaves. TV Mass
provides them with the opportunity to participate in
Sunday Liturgy while bringing comfort and joy to
people in need. It is a sort of peace that one can only
achieve through their relationship with God. Making a gift
makes a difference in the life of someone else and is one
way we are called to serve the Lord.
Please give generously to Bishop’s Appeal 2011.
