From the Desk of the Pastor:
My Dear Friends in Christl
Today we continue our journey through the 3 n1 weekend of the Lenten
Season - a Season that has hopefully challenged us to consider the many
"extras" available in our Parish Community IIIld Faith Family. Hopefully,
you've been able to attend some of the extra Liturgies, and that you' ve been
able to begin your journey via the Black Books, Adoration, and other "quiet
moments." As we began this special Season, we certainly looked forward to
that beautiful time of extra Prayer, Fasting, and Alms-Giving. It's a time to
celebrate the Eucharist more often if possible - please consider Monday and
Wednesday evenings, as well as Saturday mornings. As I mentioned in my
Ash Wednesday Homily, it' s also a time to die to Sin - one of the meanings
of the Ashes that were ·administered to each us who could attend the Ash
Wednesday Services. (Maybe that sin that we keep repeating each time we
go to Confession.) Or, maybe it's a time fur "random acts of kindness" to
those we love or interact with most - kindness to our spouse, our children,
our family, our neighbors, co-wOIkers, etc.
In the Gospel today: God's law is important in our lives. Christ implements
the Ten Commandments, teaches His followers the truth, and speaks with
BUthority. God presents us with the "perfect gift" - His Son! Jesus said you
shall know the truth and the truth will set you.free. So it is with this in mind
that we search out what is right and what is wrong; it is absolutely critical to
know the real truth. Morality for instance is not primarily a question of
sexual behavior, it is a question of our whole life. That is why doctrine
matters. And that's why the Church, the community and all of us matter.
Where else can we go, but to Himl The goal of Lent, the end of our fasting,
is the paschal mystery, the joy of Easter. This is the matter of the ligbt of
faith, the light we seek: during this special time. Just as Christ would
conquer the desert during His 4O-day sojourn, so too can we conquer any
temptations that come our way; His obedience to God is the pattern fur our
own. With Him, we can do all things...
BENTON HARBOR MI When we think of today's Gospel, have we ever tried to imagine what the risen Christ would look like? Even in anger or disgust as mentioned today, what did He look like? I have a picture in my office at the Rectory that I think captures what He might have looked like. It's the face of a young man who appears strong, yet inviting; firm, yet gentle, purposeful yet loving. It' s a picture I received as an ordination gift - a picture that I truly treasure .. . In the I- Reading: We find the words of everlasting life in the Bible. Above all, the Ten Commandments are not "recommendations", but are to be treated as "absolutes" in our lives; if we follow them, they guide us to peace, happiness and eternal joy. In the 20d Reading, We know that the preaching of the Gospel does not make sense to everyone. The Word of God demands that we changed om way of thinking and that we change our lives. That is the demand Jesus places on us today. During this Lenten Season, we begin our preparation for Easter. We focus on conversion of heart, resistance to temptation, and the very nature of Sin.. . Let us cherish the vision of the Gospel, the wisdom of the saints, and our perspective ofbeliei A Sign In Front Of an Old Church: "Sorry, but the fruit of the Spirit doesn 't include sour grapesl ** FAST & ABSTINANCE: FASTING: ("Slow Down on Consumption" Ages 18-59 fast on Good Friday, limiting ourselves to one full meal and two smaller meals each day, with no snacking between meals. ABSTINENCE: ("Abstain from meat") Ages 14 & older are to abstain from meat and meal products on Good Friday and all the other Fridays of Lent. SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRAYER:
LENTEN STATIONS OF THE CROSS: The Stations of the Cross will continue throughout the Lenten Season. A light Lenten Meal will precede each of the evening Liturgies when at St John's, and a complete Fish Dinner when at St. Bernard' s (please see Master Schedule). Good Friday will not have a meal. The Knights of Columbus, Woman's Ministty, Men' s Group, IIIld Youth Ministty will be chairing this activity this year. Schedules for all liturgies for the entire Lenten Season were in a prior bulletin - extra copies may be found at the entrances to the Church. OPERATION RJCE BOWL: Please give serious consideration to this annual very worthwhile cause. Rice Bowls and accompllllying literature are available at aU entrances to both Churches. This program supports the needy throughout 40-plus countries including the United States and our local Catholic Community Center. This will be collected at the Holy Thursday Celebration or anytime during the Triduum or Easter weekend. COMMUNAL PARISH RECONCIUATION SERVICE: On Sunday March 22, at 2:30, we will gather at St Bernard' s Church for a Parish Communal Penance Service. It is expected that at least nine (9) Priests will be available for individual Confessions, immediately following a brief liturgy. RC.I.ACANDIDATES: Please keep them, as well as our Catechists who lead them, in your prayers as they make final preparations fur their entrance into the Church at the Easter Vigil. They are Katherine Ellis and Michelle Horton. I ST PENANCE SERVICE: On Saturday, March 28 at 9:00 AM, our second graders will be making their I- Reconciliation at Sl Bernard's Church. Families of these youngsters are certainly encouraged to also receive this special Sacrament at that time. I" Holy Communion will be Sunday, May 3 at 2:30 PM at Sl John' s Church. Rehearsal for this special event is scheduled for Friday evening, May I, at 6:30 PM at St. John' s Church. Also lSI Communicants and at least one
Parent or Guardillll should plan to be present!

Monday April 6,2009 Regular Business Meeting 7 :00 P.M. Officer Meeting
5:45 P.M.
On Ash Wednesday we began our Lenten journey by observing a day of silent
reflection. During the day of silence, we meditated on several aspects of Lent
giving alms, prayer, fasting and the preparation of our hearts for Christ. After
this day of reflection, I became filled with great strength and grace to begin this
new Lenten journey.
For the next forty days and nights, I will be praying and fasting (to some degree)
for you, my loved parish family. I offer my time for you. If you have any
prayers you would like me to include, please feel free to write Of' email your
requests to me. You all have done so much tor me, I am pleased to offer my
Lent for you.

Monday- office hours at St. Bernard
Parish 9-2
Tuesday 9-3
Wednesday 10:30-3
Thursday 9-2
These are general hours and I plan
to be flexible to meet the parish
needs. Always call and leave a
message and I will get back to you
as I check my phone messages
frequently.
The duties of our parish nurse,
Katrina Ogata are to visit our sick,
and to take them Holy Communion.
She holds blood pressure clinics
monthly after all the Masses.
She will also plan educational
programs about various health
issues... diet, exercise, heart issues,
diabetes, etc. All parishioners are
encouraged to call her if you have
any questions. Katrina is quickly be­
coming a very important part of our
parish community. Her kindness &
compassion are such a blessing for
all of us.
