“For three years now I have come in
search of fruit on this fig tree but have
found none. So cut it down. Why should
it exhaust the soil? He said to him in reply, “Sir, leave it for this year also, and I
shall cultivate the ground around it and
fertilize it; it may bear fruit in the future.
If not you can cut it down.”
Luke 13:1

24 hours so that the faithful might encounter Jesus
Christ anew in the Sacrament of Penance and Eucharistic Adoration. "24 hours for the Lord" will begin on Friday, March 4th with Mass at 8am and end the following
Saturday March 5th, at 8am. For more information,

These weeks of Lent, our Catechumens are preparing for
the celebration of the Easter sacraments of Baptism,
Confirmation and Eucharist. This is the time of intense
preparation. During the Scrutiny Rites they look deeply
into their hearts to see what need to be transformed in
order to let God be the center of their lives. We will
celebrate the Scrutiny rites at the English Masses and
the Spanish Mass on February 27, March 5 and March
13. We will also be welcoming several Candidates to
full communion. They will make a profession of faith,
and receive Eucharist for the first time on April 30.
They will receive Confirmation on May 2 with our
teens. Please pray for these young men and woman
that they have the graces of these sacraments in abundance. That they may live out their lives witnessing to
Christ and supported by our church community. Please
notice their pictures in the back of church.

James Colaianni tells this story. A rather famous painting shows
a young man playing chess with the devil. They are playing for
possession of the young man's soul. The painting portrays the
devil as having just made a brilliant move. Chess players who
study the arrangement of the chess pieces in the painting feel
immediate sympathy for the young man. For he has been put in
a hopeless situation. He has been led down a blind alley with
no exit.
Paul Murphy, a former world-class chess player, became intrigued by the painting. One day, while studying
the arrangement of the chess pieces, he saw something that no one else did. Excitedly, he cried out to the
young man in the painting, "Don't give up!
That story fits in beautifully with the point that Jesus makes in the parable of the fig tree in today's gospel.
Like the young man in the painting, the fig tree seems hopelessly lost. It is about to be cut down. Then,
suddenly, a ray of hope breaks through. Like the young man in the painting, the fig tree is not doomed after all. It gets a last-minute reprieve. It gets a last-minute "second chance."
The story of the young man in the painting and Jesus' parable of the fig tree in the gospel contain an important message for us. Because of Jesus Christ, we are never doomed, no matter how bad things seem.
Because of Jesus Christ, there is still hope for us, no matter what situation we find ourselves in. Because of
Jesus Christ, there is always one "more move left to make, no matter how late in the game it is.

A misericórdia de Deus sempre nos oferece um nova oportunidade. Deus não se cansa de acreditar
na conversão do coração humano. O tempo da Quaresma favorece a conversão e nos desafia a buscar
uma vida nova. Precisamos ser incansáveis em produzir bons frutos de justiça e paz, vivendo a fé que
professamos através de gestos concretos.
Neste Ano Santo da Misericórdia, gratos pela misericórdia infinita de Deus para conosco, temos
uma oportunidade de graça especial para estender a misericórdia aos nossos irmãos. A paciência
misericordiosa de Deus, diante de nossas falhas, deve inspirar misericórdia para com os que estão ao
nosso lado.
Eis aqui modos concretos de viver a misericórdia nesta quaresma:
Obras de Misericórdia Corporais:
Obras de Misericórdia Espirituais:
1ª Dar de comer a quem tem fome;
2ª Dar de beber a quem tem sede;
3ª Vestir os nus;
4ª Acolher os estrangeiros e peregrinos;
5ª Assistir os enfermos;
6ª Visitar os presos;
7ª Enterrar os mortos.
1ª Dar bom conselho;
2ª Ensinar os que não sabem;
3ª Corrigir os que erram;
4ª Consolar os aflitos;
5ª Perdoar as injúrias;
6ª Sofrer com paciência as limitações do próximo;
7ª Rogar a Deus pelos vivos e pelos mortos.

James Colaianni cuenta esta historia. Una pintura famosa
muestra a un hombre joven que juega al ajedrez con el
diablo. Ellos están jugando por la posesión del alma del
joven. La pintura muestra el diablo teniendo justamente
una movida brillante. Los jugadores de ajedrez que estudian la disposición de las piezas de ajedrez en la pintura
sienten simpatía inmediata por el joven. Este se encuentra en una posición de falta de esperanza. Ha sido llevado
a un callejón sin salida.
Paul Murphy, un ex jugador de ajedrez de clase mundial, empezó a interesarse por la pintura. Un
día, mientras se estudiaba la disposición de las piezas de ajedrez, vio algo que nadie más lo hizo.
Con emoción, gritó al joven en la pintura: ¡No te rindas!
Esa historia encaja perfectamente con el punto que hace Jesús en la parábola de la higuera en el
Evangelio de hoy. Como el joven en la pintura, la higuera parece irremediablemente perdida. Está
a punto de ser cortada. Entonces, de repente, un rayo de esperanza se abre paso. Como el joven
en la pintura, la higuera no está condenada, después de todo. Se puso un aplazamiento de último
momento. Un último momento "una segunda oportunidad".
La historia del joven de la pintura y la parábola de la higuera en el Evangelio de Jesús contiene un
mensaje importante para nosotros. Debido a Jesucristo, nosotros no estamos condenados, no importa lo mal que parezcan las cosas. Debido a Jesucristo, todavía hay esperanza para nosotros, no
importa en la situación en que nos encontramos. Debido a Jesucristo, siempre hay un "movimiento
más hacia la izquierda para hacer, no importa lo tarde que estés en el juego.
