Marriage: Love and Life
In The Divine Plan: God’s Love, Our Love
“God established marriage so that man and
woman could participate in his love and thus
selflessly give themselves to each other in love. A
man and a woman who by their act of consent
are no longer two but one flesh (see Mt 19:6ff.)
render mutual help and service to each other
through an intimate union of their persons and
of their actions.”
(Excerpted from the U.S. Bishops’ Pastoral Letter entitled
Marriage: Love and Life In The Divine Plan. To read the
document go to http://www.usccb.org/loveandlife/)
Baptisms
We welcome the infants who were recently
initiated into the family of Christ. May they
always feel the love of God working through
their lives as they are guided by their parents
and godparents.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES
From the Executive Director of Catholic Charities, Mrs. Kelly Lilles
Kudos to Msgr. Wenzinger and his wonderful parishioners & staff! Catholic Charities received a check for $9,187.00 from the
very generous folks over at St Anthony of Padua on behalf of their Ash Wednesday collection. This was very unexpected but
much needed due to the fact that we’ve been averaging about $500.00 per week in donations since Christmas. Thank God for
Msgr. Rob and his generous parish who remember us all year even during the most difficult times.

MISERICORDIA
Dios es misericordia. Eso parece ser el mensaje principal de la lectura del Éxodo. Dios ha
visto el sufrimiento de los israelitas y les promete misericordia y rescate. Desde ese
momento, Dios es conocido como el Dios de Abraham, Isaac y Jacob. Pablo llama a sus
lectores para que continúen creciendo en la fe. El Dios que rescató a Israel también los
rescató a ellos. Por ser beneficiarios de la misericordia de Dios, los cristianos deberán
continuar trabajando para poner de su parte y convertirse en un pueblo de Dios cada vez
más confiado y lleno de amor. La segunda parte del Evangelio es una historia hogareña
sobre la misericordia de Dios. Desobedeciendo el consejo del dueño de la viña, el viñador pide misericordia — y la
muestra — para permitir que la pobre higuera reciba un año más de gracia para producir fruto. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

HISPANOS. Lunes 4 de marzo 6:00pm Salón#21
CATECISMO Y CONFIRMACIÓN
Hoy domingo 3 de marzo SI HAY CLASES de
catecismo, confirmación y reunión de padres.
Reflexionemos
sobre la Palabra
de Dios
Una mañana de 1888 Alfred
Nobel, el hombre que inventó
la dinamita, se horrorizó al leer
en el periódico que él había
muerto. El reportero había
cometido un error; era el hermano de Alfred quien había
muerto. Al leer su propia esquela Alfred Nobel se dio
cuenta de cómo él sería reconocido y recordado después
de su muerte. Él sería “el rey de la dinamita”, un
mercader de la muerte. Esto perturbó y disgustó tanto a
Nobel, que decidió darle una nueva dirección a su vida.
Comenzó a involucrarse en las obras de paz y justicia,
asegurándose de que hubiese dinero reservado para
honrar todos los años a alguien comprometido con ese
importante empeño.
Es así que, cuando Alfred Nobel murió, su esquela no
hizo mención alguna de que él fuera un mercader de la
muerte. En vez, fue elogiado por sus obras humanitarias,
en particular por crear el Premio Nobel de la Paz. Bien se
pudiera decir que el error de 1888 le dio a Alfred Nobel
otra oportunidad en la vida. Como resultado, el mundo
fue premiado con un maravilloso legado. Padre Richard Zajac

Third Sunday of Lent
Page 10
March 3, 2013
SCRUTINIES: EXAMINING OUR LIVES
The primary way that the Church assists the catechumens (called the elect after the celebration of the Rite
of Election on the First Sunday of Lent) in this conversion process during Lent is through the celebration of
the rites called Scrutinies. These ritual celebrations on the Third, Fourth and Fifth Sundays of Lent are
communal prayers celebrated around the elect to strengthen them to overcome the power of sin in their
lives and to grow in virtue. To scrutinize something means to examine it closely. The community does not scrutinize
the catechumens; the catechumens scrutinize their own lives and allow God to scrutinize them and to heal them.
There is a danger in celebrating the Scrutinies if the community thinks of the elect as the only sinners in our midst who
need conversion. All of us are called to continuing conversion throughout our lives, so we join with the elect in
scrutinizing our own lives and praying to God for the grace to overcome the power of sin that still infects our hearts. . .
. . . . .Taking seriously this dynamic of scrutiny and conversion gives us a richer perspective on Lenten "giving up." What
we are to give up more than anything else is sin, which is to say we are to give up whatever keeps us from living out
our baptismal promises fully. Along with the elect we all need to approach the season of Lent asking ourselves what
needs to change in our lives if we are to live the gospel values that Jesus taught us. Our journey through these forty
days should be a movement ever closer to Christ and to the way of life he has exemplified for us. (www.americancatholic.org)
REFLECTING ON GOD’S WORD
One morning in 1888, Alfred Nobel, the man who invented
dynamite, picked up the morning newspaper and, to his
shock, read an account of his death. The reporter had made
a mistake; it was his cousin, not he, who had died.
In reading his own obituary, Alfred Nobel realized just how
he would be recognized and remembered should he die. He
would be the “dynamite king,” a merchant of death. This so
disturbed and upset Nobel that he decided to give his life a
new direction. He became involved in the work of peace and
justice and made it a point to ensure that money was set
aside so an annual award could be given to those engaged in
that important work.
So when Alfred Nobel died, his obituary made no mention
of his being a merchant of death. He was hailed instead for
his humanitarian deeds, especially the establishment of the
Nobel Peace Prize. You could say that the mistake in 1888
gave Alfred Nobel a second chance at life. As a result, the
world was awarded a wonderful legacy.

SCRIPTURE
•
Strike the rock and the water will flow from it.
(Exodus 17:6)
•
let us acclaim the Rock of our salvation. (Psalm 95:1)
•
the love of God has been poured out into our hearts
(Romans 5:5)
•
only with difficulty does one die for a just person … But
God proves his love for us in that while we were still
sinners Christ died for us. (Romans 5:7)
•
the water I shall give will become in him a spring of
water welling up to eternal life. (John 4:14)
REFLECTION
•
What is your thirst that cannot be quenched?
•
Is your hope for an answer found in a physical thing or
activity?
•
Compare dying of thirst in the desert with dying of
thirst in a culture overrun with entertainment and
diversions - which is worse?
•
Is the “water” of John 4 the grace that God gives
through a sacrament? Are you a sacrament for others?
•
How are you able to die to self for another?
—Rev. Richard Zajac
LIVING GOD’S WORD
The Gospel today unfolds the parable of the fig tree, often
described as the parable of the second chance. The owner
of the vineyard wants it cut down. The vinedresser pleads
that it be given a second chance. Great and wonderful
results can often accompany a second chance.

STRENGTH TO SPLIT ROCKS
Do you know that oftentimes a root has
split a rock, when suffered to remain in
it? Give no judgment to the seed of evil,
seeing that it will break up your faith.
—St. Cyril of Jerusalem
March 3, 2013
Jesus became a sacrament for me, the cause of my salvation,
he brought my time in hell to an end, and put a stop to my
inner disintegration. He washed my patiently in the waters
of salvation, He filled me with the exhilarating joy of the
Holy Spirit in confirmation, he nourished me with the bread
of his word. Above all, he forgave me, he forgot everything,
he did not even wish me to remember my past self.1
