3 Lent is all about Love and Change Pastor s Corner R emember man or woman that you are dust and from dust you came and into dust you shall return. These are the memorable words Holy Mother of Church reminds us with during Ash Wednesday and throughout Lent. We are only temporaries in this game of life. The real life is yet to come after we die. When will it come for you and for me? That is God s decision and choice. But it is our duty and responsibility to be prepared. God gives us many chances during our life time to repent and change our ways if we are off the narrow path to heaven and on the broad path to hell. He says: Come back to me with all your heart, don t let sin keep us apart, long have I waited for your coming, home to me and living. How many people have turned their evil and sinful, addicted or blasphemous lives around during a Lenten season. Are you one of them who needs major changes and a good cleansing. Well you can t get it at the dry cleaner s store. You must get it 1) by repenting of your sins, 2) turning your life around or back to God with good works, holy prayer and Worship at Mass and 3) a good Confession. So make sure you rise with Christ this Easter as clean and spiritually spotless as a newborn baby. Always remember, God loves you and is waiting for you! This Lent do you need to give up liquor or drunkenness? Will it make you a better person than seeing the world through the bottom of a beer glass? Will your family see you in a new light as a good person that God made you to be when sober? Why not try it! Are you destroying your personality with sins of impurity, hook ups, unmarried or outside of married sex or relationships? Is pornography on your mind all the time to the detriment of wholesome, pure, positive thinking? Are you a stealer of big or small stuff? Remember little things can lead to bigger things. Are you a lazy Catholic in name only who does not worship God at Holy Mass on Sundays and Holy Days or keep His Ten Commandments? Do you use God s name in vain in your conversations and speech. God s name is only to be used with respect, reverence, prayer and adoration. Have you killed or murdered someone even through abortion or violence? If any of these sins is bothering you, get to confession and start over. Remember God made you GOOD but you may have made bad or sinful choices even habitually. But now is the time to come back to God. Jesus is waiting for you! He died for you! He loves you with an everlasting love and wants to forgive you if you are repentant and turn around. So what s keeping you if you are in Satan s strangle holds? Break loose with a good confession and repentance. Start over and become a sincere Christian not only in name but in fact, deed and practice. That s what Lent is all about. The ashes on Ash Wednesday are only a reminder that one day we shall die and have to give an account of our lives and choices. So always be prepared. The old must die, but the young may die and suddenly too! Semper Paratus as the military men and women say!!! Have a good Lent and Come back to God with all your heart. Don t let sin keep you apart. God and Heaven are your inheritance forever if you so choose. Don t throw it away by sinful pleasures here on earth in this short life that is meant only to be a preparation for eternal life in heaven if we prove worthy. Rev. Michael Bonner, SVD

6 Del escritorio de Padre Krzysztof (Kristof) E s cuaresma hermanos. Iniciamos el Miércoles de Ceniza cuarenta días de peregrinación. Parece que fue ayer cuando prometíamos a Jesús en Belén nuestro deseo de ser mejores y, ahora, es cuando con la cruz camino del calvario no solamente hacemos buenos propósitos sino que, además, nos comprometemos a no caer en la mera apariencia. A no quedarnos en lo superfluo. A ser conscientes de que la fe exige pruebas, signos, purificaciones y también profesión firme y entusiasta de nuestra fe. Desde algunas instancias se nos quiere hacer ver que, lo que propone y enseña la sociedad o las leyes de turno, es el camino relajado y moderno de la felicidad. El Señor, en cambio, una vez más nos pide muestras de sensatez y de ser más que de tener. No podemos ceder a presiones sociológicas, ni mucho menos políticas, donde se nos vende (a precio muy alto) un escaparate del todo lo de ahora vale y, todo lo de antes, es retrógrado inservible. Cuaresma! Tiempo de recuperación de las fuerzas espirituales. Taller para poner a punto las piezas de la vida cristiana cuando son aflojadas por el choque con la dura realidad. Jesús, antes de comenzar los años de su vida pública, movido por el Espíritu Santo se retira al desierto, en total ayuno durante cuarenta días, al final de los cuales es tentado por el demonio. La Iglesia quiere que antes de celebrar el misterio de la Pascua del Señor -su Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección- nos preparemos mediante la acción del Espíritu Santo, por la oración y la penitencia, a fin de que, purificados podamos recibir los frutos de la Redención. El Demonio emplea sus poderes contra Jesús para que oriente su misión en provecho propio y, y a espaldas de la voluntad del Padre. De hecho, el Señor debió rechazar a lo largo de su vida las presiones del ambiente, e incluso a veces, la de sus discípulos, que le empujaban en una dirección contraria al plan del Padre. Es la misma tentación que promueven los judíos al final de su vida cuando, estando el Señor clavado en la cruz dicen: Si eres el Hijo de Dios, baja de la cruz, y creeremos. Se trata de tentaciones numerosas y reales que Cristo vence con perseverancia. El gran tentador de Jesús es Satanás, pero la tentación brotará también más tarde de sus mismos discípulos. Para que la experiencia de la tentación sea real, y su vencimiento una auténtica victoria, no es necesario que el corazón del hombre esté inclinado al mal. En Jesucristo no hay ninguna aproximación al mal; no reina en El ninguna ley del pecado, pero fue tentado verdaderamente. Tengamos siempre presente que contamos en todo momento con la gracia de Dios para vencer cualquier tentación. Pero para ello, también necesitamos armas para vencer la batalla espiritual. Y esas armas son la oración, la Eucaristía y el Sacramento de la Penitencia, la humildad del corazón y una profunda devoción a la Santísima Virgen.

9 LETTER OF POPE FRANCIS TO FAMILIES Dear families, With this letter, I wish, as it were, to come into your homes to speak about an event which will take place at the Vatican this coming October. It is the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, which is being convened to discuss the theme of pastoral challenges to the family in the context of evangelization. Indeed, in our day the Church is called to proclaim the Gospel by confronting the new and urgent pastoral needs facing the family. This important meeting will involve all the People of God bishops, priests, consecrated men and women, and lay faithful of the particular Churches of the entire world all of whom are actively participating in preparations for the meeting through practical suggestions and the crucial support of prayer. Such support on your part, dear families, is especially significant and more necessary than ever. This Synodal Assembly is dedicated in a special way to you, to your vocation and mission in the Church and in society; to the challenges of marriage, of family life, of the education of children; and the role of the family in the life of the Church. I ask you, therefore, to pray intensely to the Holy Spirit, so that the Spirit may illumine the Synodal Fathers and guide them in their important task. As you know, this Extraordinary Synodal Assembly will be followed a year later by the Ordinary Assembly, which will also have the family as its theme. In that context, there will also be the World Meeting of Families due to take place in Philadelphia in September May we all, then, pray together so that through these events the Church will undertake a true journey of discernment and adopt the necessary pastoral means to help families face their present challenges with the light and strength that comes from the Gospel. I am writing this letter to you on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple. The evangelist Luke tells us that the Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph, in keeping with the Law of Moses, took the Baby Jesus to the temple to offer him to the Lord, and that an elderly man and woman, Simeon and Anna, moved by the Holy Spirit, went to meet them and acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah (cf. Lk 2:22-38). Simeon took him in his arms and thanked God that he had finally seen salvation. Anna, despite her advanced age, found new vigour and began to speak to everyone about the Baby. It is a beautiful image: two young parents and two elderly people, brought together by Jesus. He is the one who brings together and unites generations! He is the inexhaustible font of that love which overcomes every occasion of self-absorption, solitude, and sadness. In your journey as a family, you share so many beautiful moments: meals, rest, housework, leisure, prayer, trips and pilgrimages, and times of mutual support Nevertheless, if there is no love then there is no joy, and authentic love comes to us from Jesus. He offers us his word, which illuminates our path; he gives us the Bread of life which sustains us on our journey. Dear families, your prayer for the Synod of Bishops will be a precious treasure which enriches the Church. I thank you, and I ask you to pray also for me, so that I may serve the People of God in truth and in love. May the protection of the Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph always accompany all of you and help you to walk united in love and in caring for one another. I willingly invoke on every family the blessing of the Lord. From the Vatican, 2 February 2014 Feast of the Presentation of the Lord FRANCIS
