Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Thirsting for God
Perhaps there is no better example for the universal human thirst for God than the
Samaritan woman at the well. The Samaritan woman has been living a sinful life
and has struggled to live the virtue of chastity. Her reaction is typical and
resembles most individuals’ reactions to the truth of Christianity today, namely,
rejection and anger. Over time, though, she realizes that Jesus is genuinely
seeking her salvation and He longs to satisfy the desires of her heart. Just as
Jesus sought the eternal salvation of the Samaritan woman, he seeks us out as
well. He continually reaches out to us and desires our eternal salvation.
Paragraph 27 of the Catechism provides us with a beautiful summary of the
Gospel today: “The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is
created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only
in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for.” Will we
allow God to draw us to Him?
So many parishioners find each of our parish’s myparish app so helpful in getting updated information, messages,
bulletins, calendars, and spiritual renewal items. It has become an important way to get important information about
illnesses, emergencies, and death notices and visitation information quickly to as many as possible.
Consider becoming a part of the myparish app community.
It’s FREE. Go to your app store to download the app, place in the zip code, click on the parish, and you’re in! There are
also cards in the vestibules which also give information about myparish app.
For those who currently use the app, please remember to update your app every so often. To do that, click on the button
to ‘change parish’ and then click back on your home parish. It’s that simple.
|ARCHDIOCESAN LENTEN REGULATIONS
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For
God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.” (John 3:16-17)
The Church has always helped us fulfill these words of Jesus by prescribing very definite penance for all Catholics, so that we too might
have Eternal life. Accordingly, the Pope and the American Bishops have outlined obligatory fast and abstinence as follows:
Ash Wednesday (March 1, 2017) and Good Friday (April 14, 2017) are days of abstinence for all Catholics over the age of 14. On these two
days, fast, as well as abstinence, is also obligatory for those from the ages of 18-59. Abstinence means refraining from meat. Fast means
one full meal a day, with two smaller meals and nothing between meals (liquids are permitted). No Catholic will lightly excuse himself or
herself from this obligation.
All Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence from meat. Here again Catholics will not hold themselves lightly excused, but if there is a serious
health problem, this obligation would not apply.
We should strive to make all days of Lent a time of prayer and penance. Following are several resources that can aid in finding different
forms of prayer and penance.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
THIS weekend, after all Masses, there will be a membership drive for all interested in
joining the Knights of Columbus, a vital international fraternal men’s organization. It
was founded by Fr. McGivney to provide an opportunity for men to be of service to their
parishes and the community at large. We are most appreciative for all the works that
our brother Knights provide for our cluster parishes. Please see the Knight rep after
Mass for more information.
