For Those Not Receiving Holy Communion
Aware that there are often those who come to Mass who are not Catholic, or for some reason cannot partake in
Communion, we would like to invite those people in our assemblies to still come
forward in the Communion procession and, as they approach the Priest
or Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, to simply cross their arms over their chest,
so that they might receive a simple blessing.
This is a practice that is utilized in many parts of our country, as a way of making
people feel more welcomed and included.

G.I.S.A. GRUPPO ITALIANO SAN ATANASIO PRESENTA
L’ANNUALE BALLO IN ONORE DI SAN GIUSEPPE
Dal nostro DIACONO DANTE COLANDREA
Riflessione del mese di febbraio
CARA QUARESIMA
(Diego Passoni)
Cara Quaresima,
bentornata tra noi! So che non sei abituata ad essere
notata, ma quest'anno prometto di considerarti per quel
che meriti, un'occasione per alzare l'asticella.
Da oggi cominciano i quaranta giorni (che ricordano gli
anni di esodo degli ebrei, nel deserto, e i giorni di digiuno
e tentazione di Gesù, prima che iniziasse a predicare)
che precedono la Pasqua. La festa più importante dei
cristiani. No? Beh, così dovrebbe essere!
Da oggi iniziano giorni in cui poter, se non seguire i
precetti del digiuno ecclesiastico e dell'astinenza dalla
carne il venerdì, quantomeno rimettere in discussione le
nostre priorità. Provare a riempirci un po' meno di cibo - e
di cose materiali in genere - ad ascoltare ciò che abbiamo
dentro. E magari scoprire che molte frustrazioni, tristezze
e malesseri, ci vengono solo come conseguenza del
nostro vivere in modo vorace, e che non abbiamo un
tempo infinito per accumulare piacere sulla terra, e che
presto o tardi si tornerà ad esser cenere (che dà il nome
a questo speciale mercoledì) per cui vale la pena di
pensare a chi aspetta le nostre scuse, un nostro sorriso,
o un'attenzione che non abbiamo mai concesso.
E imparare - come recita un antico libro, il Qoelet - che
c'è un tempo giusto per ogni cosa, e vivere bene il tempo
del digiuno, porta a godere il tempo della festa. E se
viviamo bene il tempo presente, arriveremo pronti al
nostro tempo per morire. Altrimenti tutta la nostra vita è
inutile.
SABATO, 12 MARZO 2016 – BALLO ANNUALE IN

termine risorgere.

“L’Angolo della Sapienza” IL VERO DIGIUNO
(Leone Magno)
Il nostro vero digiuno non sta nella sola astensione dal
cibo; non vi è merito a sottrarre alimento al corpo se il
cuore non rinuncia all'ingiustizia e se la lingua non si
astiene dalla calunnia.

ottobre. $505 a persona - Diacono Dante 917-602-3793.

St. Athanasius Church
TOMADO DE LA PALABRA ENTRE NOSOTROS:
Si creemos en la Victoria de Cristo en la Cruz y nos unimos a él en su muerte y resurrección, no
seremos
avergonzados , aunque las fuerzas del mal traten de
destruirnos. En su bondad , Dios libró a su pueblo de la
esclavitud y lo llevó a una tierra de la que fluía leche y
miel. Dios pidió a los israelitas que le ofrecieran los primeros frutos de la tierra que les daba , como muestra de su fe.
De este modo, el diezmo del pueblo era la respuesta al
deseo de Dios de liberarlos. Jesús es el Mesías prometido
que nos lleva a Dios.
Así como el diablo tentó a Jesús en el desierto
tratando
de hacerlo renunciar a su confianza en el Padre, el malign
trata hoy de destruir la obra de Dios para la Salvación
nuestra y la de todos los seres
humanos. A menudo
tenemos la tentación de confiar en nosotros mismos más
que en Cristo, y cuando cedemos a esa tentación , experimentamos el
fracaso en la vida cristiana . Por eso,
conviene mirar el ejemplo de Jesús que , lleno del Espíritu
Santo , triunfó sobre Satanás por que no dejó de confiar en
el amor y el poder de Dios.
La Victoria de Cristo sobre la tentación es un
ejemplo
para nosotros en esta cuaresma. Dios desea que , al igual
que Jesús, seamos llenos del poder del Espíritu Santo y,
confiando en la fuerza del Paráclito , triunfemos sobre el
pecado y satanás , por que estamos unidos a Cristo mediante la Fe y el Bautismo. Hoy se celebra el dia del amor y
la Amistad y es una ocasión propicia para que todos nos
detengamos un momento para hacer una oración especial
por nuestros seres amados,
particularmente por
Neustria esposa o marido, hijos y tal vez nietos, pidiendo
que el Señor les bendiga de un modo especial, nada más
por el hecho de ser ellos objetos de nuestro amor. Tambien no nos olvidemos de saludarlos personalmente y
expresarles nuestro cariño de la mejor manera
posible.
El Señor estará content si lo hacemos.!

COMO PREPARACION A LA CUARESMA :Lo primero
que debemos decir al respecto es que la
finalidad
de la
Cuaresma es ser un tiempo de
preparación a
la Pascua. Por ello se suele definir a la Cuaresma, “como
camino hacia la Pascua”. La Cuaresma no es por tanto un
tiempo cerrado en sí mismo, o un
tiempo “fuerte” o importante
en
sí
mismo.
Es más bien un tiempo de preparación, y un tiempo
“fuerte”, en cuanto prepara para un tiempo “más fuerte”
aún, que es la Pascua. El tiempo de Cuaresma como
preparación a la Pascua se basa en dos pilares: por una
parte, la contemplación de la Pascua de Jesús; y por otra
parte, la participación personal en la Pascua del Señor a
través de la penitencia y de la celebración o preparación
de los sacramentos pascuales – bautismo, confirmación,
reconciliación, eucaristía –, con los que incorporamos
nuestra vida a la Pascua del Señor Jesús.
Incorporarnos al “misterio pascual” de Cristo supone participar en el misterio de su muerte y resurrección. No
olvidemos que el Bautismo nos configura con la muerte y
resurrección del Señor. La Cuaresma busca que esa
dinámica bautismal (muerte para la vida) sea vivida más
profundamente. Se trata entonces de morir a nuestro
pecado para resucitar con Cristo a la verdadera vida: “Yo
les aseguro que si el grano de trigo…muere dará mucho
fruto” estos dos aspectos hay que añadir finalmente otro
matiz más eclesial: la Cuaresma es tiempo apropiado
para cuidar la catequesis y la oración de los niños y
jóvenes que se preparan a la confirmación y a la primera
comunión; y para que toda la Iglesia ore por la conversión
de los pecadores.
