T
oday we begin a brief period of Ordinary Time, which will continue
until Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent on February 18 th. We
hear from the Gospel of John the first words on the lips of Jesus:
What are you looking for? That is a continuous challenge in the lives of Christians.
The journey to discover Christ begins with our answering that question. John’s Gospel centers this call on John the Baptist. As he sees Jesus walking down the road, the
Baptist proclaims there is “The Lamb of God.”
He then encourages his disciples to follow Jesus. In John’s Gospel we learn
that Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptist, and that he and another disciple
stayed with Jesus that day. Then they decide to bring Andrew’s brother, Simon, telling him: We have found the messiah! In that first encounter with Simon, Jesus identifies him as Cephas (rock). These translations go from Hebrew into Greek which is
the language of the four Gospels. Peter and the other disciples must discover over
time that it was in fact Jesus for whom they were looking.
We too are called to enter the journey of discovery, and to answer the
question: What are you looking for? This is not unlike the call of Samuel in the first
reading. Samuel did not know that it was the Lord calling for him. With the help of
Eli, Samuel discovers that it is God who is calling him, and Eli tells him to simply respond: Speak Lord, for your servant is listening. We do not know what the Lord told
Samuel, but we do know that Samuel eventually opened his heart to hear the call.
A call from God evolves over time. It may require several adjustments on
our part as life goes on. The initial call brings us into relationship with God, and
through prayer and discernment, perhaps even with the help of another, our call
takes different forms. We are called by God, and with God’s grace we are able
to follow!
Lenten Mustard Seed is almost ready for the printer. Watch for it in the mail because it will contain information on several Lenten offerings here at Resurrection and
in our area. We are also including a post card-sized return asking parishioners to
update their information in the parish data base. We are especially in need of
email addresses and telephone numbers. I cannot begin to count the number of folks
who have dropped their land-based telephone lines and have gone to cell phone
service. We need to have up-to-date information. Please take a moment to update
this information and return it to the parish office. All returns will be entered in a
drawing for the third, fourth, and fifth Sundays of Lent. More information to come!
Parish Pictorial Directory: As I announced earlier we will be doing a new directory
with photo’s being taken during March. We try to undertake this project every five
years. Please be cooperative when asked to schedule your appointment. When
notified of a death or hospitalization, this is the first place parish staff goes, because often we know a person by sight, but may not have had the opportunity to
learn a name. We would like to get a high percentage of participation.
May God bless you during this coming week!
Father Joe Hauer, Pastor
BAPTISMS

GREEN TEAM
CLEAN WATER, GREEN THEME
"All you who are thirsty, come to the water!”
Isaiah 55:1, Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Jan. 11
"In developed countries (such as the U.S.) we take water for
granted, since only 10 million of our collective citizens lack
access to clean water. But 780 million people worldwide
don’t have water supplies they can count on . . . The number
of people who die from water-related diseases every year
is 3.4 million—about the size of Los Angeles. . . . When we
hear statistics like these, we recognize how frequently we
waste and misuse it. With every glass you drink, say a
prayer of thanks. And get involved in the many organizations working for a water-plenty world. “
Alice Camille , www.exploringthesundayreadings.com, January 2015
This water "green theme" continued in next week’s bulletin

STEWARDSHIP
In today’s first reading, we hear Samuel respond eagerly,
“Here I am!” each time the Lord calls him. May we, too,
be listening for the call of God in our lives and be ready
to say like the psalmist, “Here am I, Lord;
I come to do your will.”

MUSIC & LITURGY
HERE I AM LORD!
In our readings today, we are
reminded that God calls us into
relationship with him throughout our
life. The call to come and follow
Jesus continues to develop and
change as we continue to grow in our
lives. What is God calling you to
come and see today? Could it be a
new way to serve others through
getting involved in the liturgy at
church? We are always looking for new people to serve
in Music Ministry and Hospitality Ministry. Don’t be afraid
to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.
Contact Amy Dolan if you would like to get involved.
Time and talent response
THANK YOU to all who responded to the call for
commitment to sharing in our Music & Liturgical Ministry.

FAITH FORMATION
Ann Knier
Director of Religious Education
Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.’
(1 Samuel 3:9)
A FAMILY PERSPECTIVE
Jesus’ question in today’s Gospel is still valid today:
“What are you looking for?” What do you want from
your spouse, children or parents? Families are populated
with imperfect people. To expect perfection is unreal. To
expect and accept imperfection is wisdom. By Bud Ozar

live chaste lives in accordance with the teaching of the Catholic Church.
“EnCourage” is the affiliate support group for family members (e.g. parents
and siblings), spouses, and friends of men and women with same-sex attraction. Based on Catholic teaching, EnCourage members support one another
and their loved ones through prayer, fellowship, discussion, and sacrifice. The

teaching, and Archbishop Jackels supports and approves the presence and
work of these ministries in the Archdiocese of Dubuque.

VOCATION VIEWS
EVERY VOCATION IS ONE THOUSAND INVITATIONS
Speak Lord, your servant is listening. (1 Samuel 3:3-10)
Listening to the Lord requires silence. Make time each day
to be quiet, so that you can hear god’s call.
Please pray for all seminarians of the Archdiocese of
Dubuque, and for those in formation for religious life and
the diaconate.
It is our prayer that more young people will consider God’s call
to Religious Life, and that they will say “yes” for the glory of
God, for the benefit of the Church and, as Pope Francis has
said, to wake up the world to the values preached by Jesus. “O
God, throughout the ages you have called women and men to
pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels of
poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated
Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses of faith
and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to
make a more perfect offering of ourselves to you. Continue to
enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who
lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.” (Official Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life)

JUSTICE JOGGER
POPE FRANCIS WORLD DAY OF PEACE 2015
No Longer Slaves, but Brothers and Sisters "I think also of the living
conditions of many migrants who, in their dramatic odyssey, experience hunger, are deprived of freedom, robbed of their possessions,
or undergo physical and sexual abuse. In a particular way, I think
of those among them who, upon arriving at their destination after a
grueling journey marked by fear and insecurity, are detained in at
times inhumane conditions. I think of those among them, who for
different social, political, and economic reasons, are forced to live
clandestinely. My thoughts also turn to those who, in order to remain within the law, agree to disgraceful living and working conditions, especially in those cases where the laws of a nation create or
permit a structural dependency of migrant workers on their employers, as, for example, when the legality of their residency is
made dependent on their labor contract. Yes, I am thinking of
'“slave labor' . . . "We know that God will ask each of us: What
did you do for your brother? (Gen 4:9-10). The globalization of
indifference, which today burdens the lives of so many of our
brothers and sisters, requires all of us to forge a new worldwide
solidarity and fraternity capable of giving them new hope and
helping them to advance with courage amid the problems of our
time . . . Jan. 1, 2015
