Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday, February 17 this year, is a special invitation for those who have been away to
come home to Christ and the Church. It is a natural day to invite those who may have been away
to stop by again. Please take the time to invite
someone, and not just invite, but offer to go with
them to church on Ash Wednesday. What have
you done to bring home one of our absent brothers and sisters? There is still time to do so much.
El miercoles de Ceniza, el 17 de Febrero este
año es una invitacion especial para aquellos
que se han alejado de la Iglesia a venir a la
casa de Cristo. Es importante invitarlos a que
vengan a nuestro servicio. Tome el tiempo para
invitar a una persona, pero no solamente invitarle si no que tambien se ofresca acompañarle
cuando vengan al servicio de las cenizas.
¿Que es lo que TU has hecho para traer a casa
los que han estado ausentes de su iglesia?

Money Can’t Buy Love
It is said that money cannot buy happiness or that the rich also cry, yet sometimes this
is said more as a consolation for those of us who are not wealthy. Deep down, almost
every-one would like to have a greater abundance of material goods. And today, Jesus
warns us of the danger of this. It is not shameful to be rich. The goods of the world are
made to be used. We have the right to enjoy the fruit of our honest work and use it for
the well-being of the family. What we are warned against is that wealth is not
everything in life. If a person places all their trust in material possessions and wellbeing,
the moment a difficulty or problem arises, it is as if the world had ended. In fact, we
have heard of many suicides provoked by feelings of failure and the catastrophe of the
global economic crisis.
The same occurs when your raise children to think they deserve everything and spoil
them without limits. The moment they faced their first frustration or failure, they may
collapse or seek success in places where they will only find a sense of emptiness and
violence, in other words, tragedy. And this is what Jesus warned us against. It is not that
in cherishing wealth we will endure catastrophes or tragedies as a punishment from God,
but that confiding excessively in them can lead to unhappiness and disgrace. We see
this, after all, in many soap operas where greed or the trust in wealth and power as a goal
in life, in the ends leads to the person’s self-destruction.
Then what does God want from us? Perhaps a better order of our priorities and values;
God wants to be at the center of our heart and not material things. He wants a vision
and objectives focused on Him and not money or well being. He wants people, from all
circumstances of life, poor or rich, successful or not, to see Him as the provider of all
goods.
For Reflection
If I reviewed my life over the past week, what place has concern over material things
occupied and what place has God held?
Lenten Guidelines
Abstinence:
All persons who have completed their
14th year are bound by the law of
abstinence.
Fast:
All adults are bound by the law of fast
from the beginning of their 19th year up to
the beginning of their 60th year.
Explanation:
The law of abstinence forbids the eating
of meat and foods prepared with meat or
meat-products.
The law of fast allows only one full meal
and two lighter meals in the course of a
day, and prohibits eating between meals.
In the United States, Ash Wednesday and
Good Friday are days of fast and
abstinence. All other Fridays of Lent are
days of abstinence only.
Exceptions:
Women who are pregnant and persons
who are sick are not bound by the law of
fast.
Please Pray For...
Those suffering due to the weather in
our country.

Hora Santa, Confesiones y
Misa durante la Cuaresma.
La Cuaresma es hoy un período litúrgico de
cuarenta días, destinados a preparar la digna
celebración de la Pasión, Muerte y Resurrecci6n
de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Por lo mismo, es
un tiempo de mayor penitencia y recogimiento, y
de oración. Para obtener este objetivo aquí, en
nuestra Parroquia de Santa María tendremos
Hora Santa, Confesiones y Misa durante la
Cuaresma. La Hora Santa sera de las 5:00pm a
las 6:00pm. Durante este tiempo el Padre Jesus escuchara confesiones. La Santa Misa iniciara a las 6:00pm. Toma esta oportunidad para vivir mas cerca tu Cuaresma y
acercarte mas a nuestro Dios.
Viacrusis de la Cuaresma.
Recuerde que todos los viernes de Cuaresma tendremos el
viacrucis en español a las 6:00 pm, en la iglesia.

Abstinencia: Todos los que han cumplido
14 años están obligados por esta norma.

abstenerse desde que tiene los 14 años. La
norma del ayuno significa que todos los adultos están obligados despsués de cumplir 19
años de edad hasta la ed ad de 60 años.
Aplicación: La norma de abstinencia pide el
no comer carne y productos preparados con
carne. La norma de ayunar se refiere a
comer una comida complete y dos comidas
muy ligeras en el curso del día y prohíbe
comer entre las comidas. En los estados
Unidos el Miércoles de Ceniza y el Viernes
Santo, son días de ayuno y abstinencia.
Todos los viernes de Cuaresama son días de
abstinencia de carne.

cenizas será.

El Dinero No Hace La Felicidad
Dicen que el dinero no hace la
felicidad. O que los ricos también lloran.
Pero a veces eso se dice como una
cierta consolación para quienes no
somos ricos. En el fondo, casi todos
quisiéramos tener mayor abundancia de
bienes naturales. Y hoy Jesús nos
advierte del peligro de eso. Pero no es
una vergüenza ser rico. Los bienes del
mundo son para usarlos. Se tiene
derecho a disfrutar el fruto de un trabajo
honrado y a usarlo para el bienestar de
la familia. De lo que se nos advierte es
de que eso no lo es todo en la vida.
Porque, si uno pone toda su confianza
en esas posesiones y en ese bienestar,
en el momento en que hay una dificultad
o un problema, es como si se acabara la
vida. De hecho, hemos escuchado de
muchos suicidios provocados por la
sensación de fracaso y la catástrofe de
la crisis económica internacional.
Y lo mismo ocurre cuando se educa a
los jóvenes pensando que todo se les
debe y consintiéndoles sin freno. En el
momento en que llega la primera
frustración, el primer fracaso, se podrían
venir abajo o buscar el éxito en lugares
en donde lo único que se puede
encontrar de verdad es el vacío de
sentido y la violencia, es decir, la
desgracia. Y de eso nos previene Jesús.
No es que, por amar las riquezas, nos
vayan a sobrevenir catástrofes o
tragedias como castigo de Dios sino
que, el excesivo confiar en ellas, puede
llevar a la infelicidad y a la desgracia.
Lo vemos, al fin y al cabo, en muchas de
las novelas. La ambición, la confianza
en las riquezas y el poder como fin
último de la vida, al final lleva a la
autodestruc-ción de la persona.
¿Qué es lo que quiere Dios de
nosotros, entonces? Quizá un mejor
ordenamiento de prioridades y valores.
Dios quiere un corazón donde el centro
sea Él y no algo material. Quiere una
mirada y unos objetivos que se centren
en Él y no en el dinero, el bienestar.
Quiere personas que, en todas las
circun-stancias de la vida sea en
pobreza o riqueza, en éxito o en fracaso,
le miren a Él, como el dador de todos los
bienes.
Para La Reflexión
¿Si hago un repaso de mi vida en esta
semana? ¿Qué lugar han ocupado las
preocupaciones materiales y qué lugar
ha ocupado Dios?
