Bulletin for the Week of March 16, 2014 and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

Many thanks to all for the success of our parish mission last week!  It was great to see so many praying and learning together.  What a great way to start our Lenten Season!!  We especially thank Deacon Randy Hyde for his stirring story of the working of Christ in his life and his helping us how to learn to "Embrace Calvary." We also thank Deacon Joubert for his efforts in coordinating and providing for the logistics of the mission. The purpose of the mission is to help us come to know Jesus more deeply during Lent, and by acknowledging the healing power of His Mercy, to be able to imitate Him more deeply in our lives.  Properly lived, Lent will bring us greater joy when we come to Good Friday and Easter.

For those of you who were unable to attend the mission, please know that the mission talks can be heard on our website.  We thank Andrew Guidroz, our site manager, for recording and making these talks available for all.

"What's wrong with us?"  That's the question Deacon Hyde asked at the beginning of his homily last weekend while introducing the mission.  We heard in the first reading last weekend the Story of the Fall of Mankind, when Adam and Eve were tempted by the serpent and then ate of the forbidden fruit.  Because of this, sin entered the world.  As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we will explore the nature of sin over the next two weeks in the Sunday homilies.  This weekend, we will explore the nature of sin in general, beginning with Adam and Eve.  Next weekend, we will examine how we are to evaluate specific acts for their goodness or their sinfulness.  Understanding the nature of sin and how to evaluate or examine our own actions is critical to being able to properly repent of the things we have done wrong, and then to make sure that we truly imitate Jesus in all His Goodness.

May God continue to bless us on our Lenten journey!
