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
Dal nostro DIACONO DANTE COLANDREA
Riflessione del mese di febbraio
MERCOLEDI DELLE CENERI
Date un pensiero al rito dell'imposizione delle Ceneri.
Meriterebbe una prefazione storica, che lo fa risalire
all'antico Testamento (Cfr. ad es. Ier. 25, 34; Iud. 9, 1;
Dan. 9, 3, etc.), e lo travasa nel nuovo (Cfr. Luc. 10, 13;
Matth. 11, 21), e poi nella prassi dei primi secoli cristiani
e nei seguenti.
MERCOLEDI’ DELLE CENERI - questo mercoledi, 10
febbraio sono le ceneri.
Ma guardatene il senso, il pessimismo cioè che grava
sulla vita umana nel tempo; rileggete uno dei libri,
sapienziali, e in certo senso, quasi sconcertante, della
Bibbia, l'Ecclesiaste (ora indicato col termine ebraico
Qohèlet), che comincia con le famose parole, adatte per
un cimitero dell'umanità senza speranza: «vanità della
vanità, tutto è vanità» (Eccl. 1, 1);
TRIDUO PASQUALE - LUNEDI, 14 Marzo, MARTEDI’
15 marzo, MERCOLEDI’ 16 marzo, organizzato da
G.I.S.A. Gruppo Italiano San Atanasio - Confessioni
alle 7:30. Messa alle 8pm. Confessioni anche dopo la
Messa. Questo triduo sara condotto ogni sera dal Rev.
Padre Al Barozzi.
e ripensate al pauroso verismo di certa letteratura e di
certa filosofia contemporanea; e vi convincerete della
sincerità della Chiesa nella sua pedagogia spirituale; ella
non può passare sotto silenzio l'esperienza della morte e
del dissolvimento, a cui la nostra temporale esistenza è
condannata.
QUARESIMA – TEMPO DI PENITENZA E PREGHIERA.
Vi ricordiamo che durante la quaresima e’ molto
importate confessarsi. Cortesemente leggete il bollettino
per l’orario delle confessioni nella nostra parrocchia.
Ma con questa immediata rettifica ad una concezione
disperata del nostro vero destino: la vita, in Cristo, sarà
vittoriosa. E cioè bisogna ricordare e scoprire l'aspetto
positivo della quaresima, cioè della penitenza cristiana.
Essa non è voluta e promossa per offendere e per
rattristare l'uomo, insaziabilmente avido di vita, di
pienezza, di felicità, ma per ammaestrarlo e per condurlo,
mediante l'arduo cimento della penitenza, alla conquista,
o meglio alla riconquista del «paradiso perduto».
Periodo perciò di riflessione si apre davanti a noi.
È la concezione, in fondo, della nostra vita che passa
all'analisi della coscienza cristiana; è l'autocritica
fondamentale, è la filosofia che sfocia nella sapienza, è lo
sforzo
di
salvataggio,
dall'inevitabile
naufragio
travolgente, che accetta la mano salvatrice di Cristo, che
ci è offerta in questa palestra spirituale.
Procuriamo di comprendere, cerchiamo di profittarne.
Vi ricordiamo cortesemente di pregare per tutti i
malati della nostra parrochia – grazie.
VIA CRUCIS - A partire da venerdi’, 12 febbraio si inizia
la via crucis. Come ogni anno, ogni venerdi’ sera ci
riuniremo tutti nella chiesa superiore per la Via della
Croce che terminera’ venerdi’ Santo con l’annuale
processione. Unitevi a noi numerosi ogni venerdi’.

TOMADO DE LA PALABRA ENTRE NOSOTROS:
En el Evangelio de hoy vemos que, ante la orden de
Jesús , Simón Pedro echó las redes al mar y sacó
una increíble cantidad de peces . Simón se quedó
atónito, por que hasta entonces no había pasado nada . Viendo tan petente milagro , se dio cuenta de
que estaba delante del Señor y cayó de rodillas arrepentido. Pero Jesús le dijo: “ No temas ; desde ahora
serás pescador de hombres.
El profeta Isaías tuvo la misma reacción cuando tuvo
una visión del Señor y se sintió lleno de miedo: “ay
de mi , estoy perdido , por que soy un hombre de labios impuros….por que he visto con mis ojos al Rey
y Señor de los ejercitos. Pero un ángel le tocó los
labios con una brasa del altar y lo purificó de toda
culpa. Luego, el profeta escuchó que el Señor
decía : A quien enviaré ? Quien irá de parte mía? Sin
dudarlo un instante, Isaías exclamó; Aquí estoy , Señor , envíame. Dios está deseoso de enviar a cada
uno de nosotros como envió al profeta Isaías y al
apóstol Pedro. Si estamos dispuestos a recibir el
amor el Señor, también escucharemos su llamada al
discipulado; nos reconoceremos indignos de
semejante honor, pero también sabremos que, si somos fieles, podemos recibir el poder del Espíritu
Santo para interceder , perdonar y anunciar el Evangelio. A medida que crezcamos en unión con Cristo,
también creceremos en amor a Dios y estaremos dispuestos , como Isaías y Pedro, a dejarlo a todo para
seguir al Señor. No tengamos miedo de ser humildes
delante de Dios ni de recibir la misión que él quiera
darnos. No se trata de salir a la calle a predicar , sino
de aprovechar las oportunidades que tengamos, en
las conversaciones normales, de dar a entender o
decir abiertamente que creemos en Cirsto y que él no
ha cambiado la vida. No hay honor mas grande que
ser siervo del Señor , enviados a pescar almas para
su reino.
February 7, 2016
Llegamos al umbral de la Cuaresma , época donde
nos preparamos espiritualmente hacia el encuentro
con Jesucristo , su pasión , muerte y Resurección.
Este
tiempo es propicio para recuperar la gracia
santificadora a traves de las obras y de la fe , pero
esas obras no sirven de nada sino se hacen con un
corazón sincero y lleno de arrepentimiento. Al experimentar la nueva vida debemos empezar por tomar la
desición de renunciar a los malos hábitos y lo que
nos ata al mundo. Jesús Señaló en algun momento
que las obras deben hacerse con el fin de
demostrar el amor y la verdad. . La practica del ayuno y
la limosna son dos de las obras que siempre la Iglesia recomienda por que nos ayudan a centrar la
atención en el sacrificio redentor de Jesucristo, nuestro Señor , y
recibir la gracia de Dios. Aparte de
esto, nos conviene dedicar mas tiempo y atención a
la oración personal , la lectura de las Sagradas Escrituras , en especial a los relatos de la Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección de Nuestro Señor. Y finalmente
reconociendo nuestras culpas nos adentraremos en
esta epoca de penitencia , donde tendremos la oportunidad de centrarnos en reflexionar acerca de nuestra vida y la respuesta que estamos dando al
llamado de Jesucristo a la conversión en este año de
la Misericordia.
Preparemonos pues para que este miercoles
comenzemos con la mejor actitud esta temporada de
cuaresma con el corazon abierto y dispuesto a
reencontrarnos con Jesús durante los 40 de desierto
para llegar así a la gloria de la resurección.
