Letter From The Pastor
Dear Parishioners:
It may seem like an epidemic of self-confessions has affected way too many people
around the world. Rather than making use of the confessional as Jesus asks, we tell everyone
else. Of course if it’s not Facebook than Twitter or Instagram, etc.,
etc., etc. There are many ways people misuse the Internet and by
doing so put themselves at risk.
I encourage all of us to subscribe to CovenantEyes or another such
service to help ourselves and our family to be responsible and accountable to one another about our Internet usage. One of the things I like about
CovenantEyes is their commitment to Christian values and the many articles, E-books
about the effects of porn on our brains and souls.
Some will read this and wonder why they might subscribe because they are adults and
have no need of a content filtering program or accountability. One very good reason I
propose is good example. We can tell our children, relatives, friends, etc. that we have
an accountability partner.
No one is so holy that temptation cannot lure you or me into sin. If we think, “I’ll never
do that;” Satan comes after us like gangbusters. He does all in his limited power to drag down the proud. Any of
us could fall. Having an accountability partner helps keep a more humble attitude about ourselves which is always
a good thing. St. Augustine wrote, The three most important virtues for the spiritual life are, humility, humility,
humility.
*************************
Speaking of confessions, here are added times to avail yourself of this merciful sacrament. I repeat my plea
that you not wait until the last day or two. We get in the situation that we cannot hear all the confessions because
there are too many people and so few priests.
EXTRA TIMES:
MONDAY MARCH 7
6:00 PM — 7:00 PM
THURSDAY-MARCH 10 6:00 PM — 7:00 PM
MONDAY MARCH 14
6:00 PM — 7:00 PM
THURSDAY-MARCH 17 6:00 PM — 7:00 PM
9:00 AM — 10:00 AM
SATURDAY MARCH 19
MONDAY MARCH 21
6:00 PM — 7:30 PM
WEDNESDAY-MARCH 23 6:00 PM — 7:30 PM
8:30 AM — 10:00 AM
FRIDAY MARCH 25
9:00 AM — 10:00 AM
SATURDAY MARCH 26
OF COURSE WE HAVE OUR REGULAR TIMES ON SATURDAY AFTERNOONS.
Also, please take some time before you actually enter the confessional. Know what you are going to say so
that your confession does not take an overly long time. The confessional is not a time for counseling about problematic items in one’s life. If each confession takes only four minutes a priest can only hear fifteen confessions in
an hour.
We are so fortunate to be able to receive the mercy of God in so many ways. This sacrament of mercy is a
wonderful testament to God’s love for you and me. When you make your confession in preparation for Easter, be
sure to count your blessings.
Pax et bonum,
Msgr. Bill

Monday, March 7, we will begin our study
of the memoir, "My Life with the Saints"
by James Martin, SJ.
News from the Thursday Night Bible Study...
Father Martin takes us through his spiritual development by way of his personal relationship with the saints
and modern Catholics who inspired him. The product
of a lukewarm Catholic family, his life on Wall Street
left him joyless. A chance encounter with a TV show
about Thomas Merton led him to consider a vocation to
the priesthood. For more information, contact Joan
Gilliland, [email protected] All are welcome
to attend the introductory meeting in the Parish Center
March 7. First full session will be held March 28, when
we will discuss chapters 1-4.
Note Schedule Change: the Thursday night bible
study group is doing a Lenten study for the month
of March--Catholic Way Bible Study's program
"The Passion" with presenter Lavinia Espirito.
"It is a wonderful experience to discover a new saint.
For God is greatly magnified and marvelous in each
one of His saints: differently in each individual
one." (Thomas Merton)
On April 7th, the group will begin Bishop Robert
Barron's study, "Priest, Prophet, King".
All interested adult members of the parish are
welcome. For formation call Joan, 713-408-3556,
or email [email protected]
St. Vincent de Paul Book Club
We will meet Wednesday, March 9, 10:30

A total of 46 blood products were provided. We also
had a number of other folks who tried to donate but
were deferred; please try again.

and mercy.

A SUNDAY FOR REJOICING
Today’s Gospel story of the prodigal son is a favorite of
many. We can identify with all the major figures and their
crisscross of emotions. The father’s initial grief over his
young son’s avarice is turned to relief at his return. The
son’s grief over his loss of fortune, family, and friends is
turned to delirious joy at the sight of his father. We understand the eldest son’s bewilderment over his father’s
generosity. For the older son, virtue seems not to be its
own reward. For all his honorable toil and loyalty, there
seems to be no celebration. The father, however, is prodigal in his forgiveness and mercy. He expects the same
generosity from his older son. He wants all to rejoice
when the lost one is found. This is a Sunday for rejoicing.
It’s time to pause, consider, and encourage one another.
We are the prodigal children heading home. We are the
elder siblings waiting with the eager Father, who scans
the horizon. In Christ Jesus we are reconciled to the Father and one another. In his death and resurrection we
have passed over. We are a new creation. In this we rejoice. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Guayaquil Mission Dinner and Gala
Students attending the mission school in Guayaquil,
Ecuador, pose in their uniforms donated by students from
our parish school. Please consider attending the
upcoming 9th Annual Guayaquil Mission Dinner and
Gala which will be held on Saturday, April 23, in the
Monsignor Jamail Family Center. This event is the
major source of funds to support the mission. If unable to
attend, your generous donation toward the Gala and
Mission would be greatly appreciated. Remember, no gift
is too small. We are also requesting items (i.e., gift cards,
bottles of wine, etc) for the silent auction to be held the
night of the Gala. Check the Guayaquil Mission page on
the SVdP website for more information and to download
a donor form. Donated items may be dropped off at the
Incarnate Word Convent, 3400 Bradford St., Houston
77025 - next to the church parking lot.
One of the first steps to a Catholic wedding takes place
in the parish rectory, as the newly engaged come forward
to “set a date.” We owe this scenario to reforms made by
the emperor Charlemagne late in the eighth century. He
required that nobles and commoners alike have public
weddings, and also required that marrying couples be
examined for factors that would block a marriage, such
as previous marriages or close kinship. The pope was
more conservative, however, and resisted the emperor’s
creativity. It was enough for the pope that the couples
exchange consent. That tradition is passed on to this day,
to some couples’ surprise. In 866, Pope Nicholas ruled
that a marriage was legal and binding even without a liturgy or public celebration. After that, it was the consent
of the couple, not the blessing of parents or priest, that
made a marriage “count.” If consent was lacking, such as
through abduction or fear, then the marriage could not
“take.”
Charlemagne got a great deal done, but he was a political
flash in the pan, and the empire had virtually collapsed
by the year 1000. Europe broke into a checkerboard of
princedoms and languages, and at last all marriages came
under the church, the glue holding the known world together. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

the Year by Houston Ground Angels.
Ground Angels is a nonprofit organization, whose mission is to

Mass Intentions
Why do Catholics offer Masses for the dead? When we
die in God’s friendship we eventually go to Heaven, but
if we haven’t properly atoned for certain sins we have to
be purified in Purgatory first. We pray for the souls in
Purgatory to help them pass through faster than they
would otherwise. The 2016 Book for Mass Intentions is
now open. Please see Paulette Blackburn in the Apostolic
Center for your Mass Intention requests.

Houston Ground Angels on July 10, 2014.

Cuarto Domingo de Cuaresma
6 de marzo de 2016
“HAGAMOS UNA FIESTA”
A medida que vamos dejando el invierno atrás
y entramos en la recta final de nuestra jornada
de Cuaresma, tenemos buenas razones para
celebrar. Sabemos que con cada nuevo amanecer disfrutaremos de unos días más largos y
más calientes. También sabemos que Cristo,
nuestro “Sol” resucitado, trae más y más luz y
calor al mundo con cada día que pasa. ¡Qué
mejor manera de celebrar que con una fiesta!
La primera lectura, el salmo y el Evangelio de
este domingo, todos se refieren a fiestas. Cada
una de estas fiestas celebra lo que el salmo describe como la bondad del Señor (Salmo 34:9).
La celebración de la Pascua de primavera de la
que habla la lectura de Josué conmemora el regalo que Dios dio a los israelitas: la tierra de Canaán. En la
parábola que nos presenta el Evangelio el padre no da importancia a los pecados de su hijo pródigo ni a sus
propios sentimientos heridos. Él proclama: “Celebremos un banquete de fiesta” (Lucas 15:23). Luego sale
de su propio banquete a rogarle a su hijo mayor que entre, pues “tenemos que hacer fiesta y alegrarnos, porque este hermano tuyo estaba muerto y ha vuelto a la vida, estaba perdido y ha sido encontrado” (Lucas
15:32).
MINISTERIO DE LA RECONCILIACIÓN
Estas tres fiestas apuntan hacia el banquete que todos celebraremos en la tierra prometida del cielo
y que anticipamos en el banquete de la Eucaristía. En la Eucaristía celebramos el amor y el perdón infinitos
que Dios nos ha mostrado en Cristo. Sin embargo, no se trata simplemente de sentarnos a la mesa y brindar
por nuestro perdón. San Pablo nos recuerda que Dios “nos ha confiado el ministerio de la reconciliación” (2
Corintios 5:18). Igual que sucedió con los hermanos de la parábola, la generosidad de Dios hacia nosotros
debe abrir nuestro corazón para perdonar y para pedir perdón a nuestros hermanos y hermanas en Cristo.
Como el padre de la parábola, debemos ser “embajadores de Cristo” (2 Corintios 5:20), difundiendo “el
mensaje de la reconciliación” (2 Corintios 5:19) a todos los que necesitan el perdón reconciliador de Cristo.
El banquete celestial no estará completo hasta que todas las personas vengan a la fiesta y “gusten y vean qué
bueno es el Señor” (Salmo 34:9).
Lecturas de hoy: Josué 5:9a, 10–12; Salmo 34:2–7; 2 Corintios 5:17–21; Lucas 15:1–3, 11–32

LOS SANTOS Y OTRAS CELEBRACIONES
Domingo: Cuarto Domingo de Cuaresma;
Domingo de las Niñas Exploradoras
Lunes: Santas Perpetua y Felicidad
Martes: San Juan de Dios
Miércoles: Santa Francisca de Roma
Viernes: Abstinencia
UN DOMINGO PARA ALEGRARSE Pocas parábolas
del Evangelio son tan queridas por el pueblo cristiano como
la del hijo pródigo. Nos podemos identificar con todos sus
personajes, y con las emociones que se entrecruzan entre
ellos. El dolor del padre por la avaricia y desconsideración
de su hijo se convierte en alegría al verlo regresar. El dolor
del hijo por haber perdido todo lo que tenía –dinero, familia,
amigos– se convierte en alegría delirante al ver como su padre lo recibe. Pero también comprendemos el desconcierto
del hijo mayor ante la generosidad de su padre. Para el hijo
mayor, la virtud no es su propia recompensa. Ha trabajado
duro, y ha sido un hijo leal, pero eso no se celebra con fiestas ni banquetes. Pero su padre es un padre pródigo, y prodiga su perdón y su misericordia. Y espera que su hijo mayor tenga esa misma generosidad. Quiere que todos se regocijen porque el que estaba perdido ha sido hallado. Este
es un domingo para alegrarse. Es día de hacer una pausa,
y de considerarnos y alentarnos unos a otros. Porque todos somos hijos pródigos, en el camino de regreso al hogar de nuestro padre. Y debemos también ser hermanos
mayores, pero hermanos mayores que esperan junto con
el padre ansioso, mientras vislumbra el horizonte. En
Cristo Jesús nos vemos reconciliados, con Dios Padre, y
con nuestros hermanos. En su Muerte y Resurrección hemos pasado de la muerte a la vida. Somos una nueva creación. Y esto nos llena de alegría. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE Cuaresma es tiempo de reconciliación por medio del perdón. En este espíritu,
el Papa san Juan Pablo II pidió perdón por pecados cometidos por la Iglesia. Uno de estos pecados es la manera como
América fue cristianizada. La relación del latino con la
religión católica ha sido entre buenas intenciones y antagonismos. Gracias a Dios, ¡somos cristianos! Lamentablemente, nuestro bautizo, en la mayor parte de los casos, fue
en agua bendita y sangre indígena a la vez, ya que América
fue evangelizada con cruz y espada. Los pobres misioneros
que con fatiga, predicaron en nuestras tierras venían acompañados por hombres poderosos en busca de riquezas. El
filósofo romano-español Séneca (siglo I) afirmaba: "la religión es algo que para la persona común es verdad, para el
sabio es falso y para el poderoso es útil". A su vez, el romano-judío Pablo de Tarso declara que en Cristo, Dios ha
revelado que la persona común y necia derribará la falsedad de los sabios (1 Cor 1:18-31). El latino creyente reconoce que su fe nació del dolor de la conquista y no niega
los abusos clericales, pero confía en el Evangelio reconciliador. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
