Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Temptation
How is the devil tempting you in your life? Today’s Gospel
discusses the temptations of Christ by the devil: “All of this will be
yours, if you worship me” (Luke 4:7). Worship is due to the Creator
alone. It is easy in today’s culture to worship the false idols of
wealth, possessions, pleasure, and fame. Prayer is a strong
antidote to these improperly ordered desires. “It is by his prayer
that Jesus vanquishes the tempter, both at the outset of his public
mission and in the ultimate struggle of his agony” (CCC, 2849).
The Our Father, with its petition to “lead us not into temptation” is
especially effective with these struggles.
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.”
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
Ash Wednesday (February 10, 2016) and Good Friday (March 25, 2016) 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.
Our new St. Vincent de Paul & Immaculate Conception apps are now
available to download for iPhone and Android smart phones. Stay
connected with our parish throughout the week with instant
notifications, an easy-to-access event calendar, and the ability to
quickly reply to or share messages via Facebook or Twitter. Also
enjoy a bunch of additional features like prayers, daily readings,
helpful reminders to silence your phone before Mass or Confession,
and much more.

Look for this symbol to make sure you are downloading the right
church app; there are many different one’s out there. Texting ‘APP’
to 88202 will lead you directly to the app in your appstore. 1 was
able to download the app to my android tablet through the Google
Playstore and it works fine. If someone would try for your iPad and
let me know how well it works.
Play around with the app and if you have any questions, contact me
by text or by e-mail. Once you sign in to your parish, the parish
images will be missing for a while; we have downloaded the Lent

Faithful Catholics are exhorted to receive the sacrament of reconciliation at least once
a year (CCC 1457-58), and many do so during the season of Lent. In addition to the
Examination of Conscience on myParish app, a daily examination can help focus your
thoughts as you prepare to receive the sacrament.
One resource is the Ignatian Examen. This is a version of the five-step Daily Examen
that St. Ignatius practiced.
1. Become aware of God’s presence.
2. Review the day with gratitude.
3. Pay attention to your emotions.
4. Choose one feature of the day and pray from it.
5. Look toward tomorrow.

app for upcoming confession times.
The Season of Lent marks the final part of the journey of those in
our RCIA program preparing for Easter Sacraments. During Lent,
please keep them especially in your prayers:
