Knowing, Living and Sharing Our Faith
1st Sunday in Lent—Year C
Tempted by the devil
In today’s gospel, the encounter of Jesus with “the devil”
parallels our own encounters with “the devil.” By resisting
the devil’s temptations to act against who God created us
to be, we fully embrace our human identity.
Jesus chooses not to misuse his divine power, taking up the
mission for which he was sent. We choose not to act against
the Divine Life God has bestowed upon us, taking up the
mission on which we have been sent.

Be a part of our outreach to the homeless
Ayuda a las personas indigentes.
From ancient times, the poor have been especially served on
Holy Thursday connecting to Jesus' words about serving our
brothers and sisters, during the Washing of the Feet.
This year when you prepare to come to Holy Thursday Mass of
the Lord's Supper (March 24th), we ask you to bring items for
the homeless. We suggest that you take a quart-size Ziploc
freezer bag and place the following (travel size) items in it:
Toothpaste, Mouthwash, Small Soap, Shampoo, Lotion, Comb,
Toothbrush. (Socks may be given separately.)
Desde tiempos antiguos, los pobres han sido servidos de forma
especial el Jueves Santo, en conexión con las palabras de Jesús
acerca de servir al prójimo, durante el Lavado de Pies.
Este año, al prepararnos para la Misa de Jueves Santo (24 de
marzo) les pedimos que recolecten los siguientes artículos
(tamaño viajero) para donar a las personas indigentes.
Los siguientes artículos deben venir en bolsas Ziploc:
Pasta de dientes, Enjuague Bucal, Jabón, Champú,
Crema de manos, Peine, Cepillo de dientes
You will be invited to place your gift for the poor in a large
basket at the Offertory of the Mass.
