February 22, 2015—First Sunday of Lent
THE MEANING OF OUR BAPTISM
Lent is the time of year that we devote to scrutinizing
our lives in the light of our baptism into the death
and resurrection of Jesus. Today's readings are a nice
shorthand catechism of what our baptized lives
mean. As Noah passed through the waters of the
flood to a covenant with God, so did we enter into a
covenant, a promised relationship with God through
our baptism. The psalm reminds us that if we truly
keep the covenant, the way of life God expects us to
follow will not be a burden, but a source of love and
truth. Peter's letter gives one explanation of what our
baptism means: it is an appeal that we make to God
for a clear conscience. How do we obtain this clear
conscience? The words that Jesus proclaims immediately following his temptation show us the way:
"Repent and believe in the gospel." It might be a
good spiritual exercise to keep these readings before
us throughout the entire season of Lent, a means to
help us return to a life lived in our baptismal promises.

Christ-centered lives. The group will
meet for breakfast on Wednesday

February 25th, during the first week

Fasting may be a priority in your Lenten spring-cleaning regimen. Almost
every religious tradition recognizes
that fasting is a key to heightened
spiritual awareness. You know this
from your own experience. When
you are engaged in a hobby, painting
a room, keeping vigil near a delivery
room, or standing watch at a sickbed,
you may simply forget to eat. What
you are doing so fills you that the
intensity of the action is itself nourishing. In fasting from food, or drink, or
habitual behaviors, you make room
for what is truly important.
Even though Lenten Sundays stand
apart from the Lenten fast, you will
notice traces of fasting in our liturgy.
We fast from singing the Gloria and
Alleluia, we fast from flowers bedecking the altar, and there may be a noticeable drop in the number of infant
baptisms as parents elect to wait until
Easter. This hints that fasting is a
prelude to feasting, and the vigor of
our Easter alleluias is rich fare after a
long silence. In the same way, even a
small fast--no cream in the coffee, no
pepper in the soup, no radio in the car
--can not only point to deeper hungers, but help us rejoice more fully in
the feast when we break our fast together.

The Miracle of LIFE
The human body is the most complicated and incredible machine in the
world.
Its bones, muscles, arteries, veins and
internal organs are organized
with marvelous design. Every part of
the body, though each may seem to be
so different from another, is made up
of the same material: cells.
Cells, each of which is one thousandth of a millimeter, are the structural units that form our body and
everything in it. Some of these cells
unite to form bones, others to form
nerves, the liver, the inner layer of the
stomach, the skin or the cornea of the
eyeball. Each has the size and shape
that exactly meet the requirement of
that part of the body.
How and when did cells, which have
such varied functions, come into being? All the approximately 100 trillion
cells that make up your body today
came from the division of one single
cell. That single cell which had the
same structure as all the cells in your
body now, came from the union of
your mother’s egg cell and your father’s sperm cell.
Yes, life begins at conception!

Lent...activities for families
for the 40 Days…
Lent is a time of prayer, penance and
sacrifice, a time for the entire family
to be more attentive to the words of
Jesus and to each other. It is a time to
try harder to put Christ’s teachings
into practice. It is a time of concentrated effort toward the springtime of
spiritual growth, or rebirth and renewal. It is a time when the whole Church
goes on retreat for 6 weeks. It is a 40day journey with Jesus. Lent means
doing something as well as giving up
something.
Clay Pot—shatter an inexpensive clay
pot and give each family member a
piece to keep during Lent as a reminder that we are like clay in God’s
hands. During Lent, we can allow
God to shape us into new vessels.
Fasting during Lent has always been
a popular religious practice.
•
Fast from fast food.
•
Fast from TV one day a week.
•
Fast from electronic games one
day a week.
•
Fast from using the computer and
spend that time with your family.
•
Fast from buying anything that is
unnecessary during Lent.
•
Fast from bad habits that need to
be changed or given up.
Attend a Simple Lenten Meal and
donate what you would normally
spend on a meal out. This is a way of
living the Beatitudes and joining in a
Parish Lenten activity.
Schedule a Family Night. Plan time
together and enrich your family life.
Themes for families and small groups
to use at home, including prayer,
something to think about, conversation starters, activity ideas for Young
Families, Middle Years Families and
Adult Families, entertainment, and
even snack suggestions.

Signs of Love for Lent
Stress the importance of quiet time

each week or each day—no TVB,
Ipods, music, or cell phones.
Write a letter or call someone who is
lonely or shut-in.

EL SIGNIFICADO DE NUESTRO
BAUTISMO
Cuaresma es la época del año que dedicamos a escudriñar nuestras vidas a la
luz de nuestro Bautismo en la muerte y
resurrección de Jesús. Las lecturas de
hoy son como un catecismo abreviado
de lo que nuestras vidas de bautizados
significan. Tal como Noé pasó por las
aguas del diluvio a una alianza con Dios, así también nosotros entramos en
una alianza, una relación con Dios
prometida por nuestro Bautismo. El
salmo nos recuerda que si realmente
vivimos la alianza, el modo de vida que
Dios quiere que vivamos no va a ser una
carga, sino una fuente de amor y
verdad. La carta de Pedro ofrece una
explicación de lo que significa nuestro
bautismo: es una plegaria a Dios pidiendo una buena conciencia. ¿Cómo obtenemos esta buena conciencia? Las
palabras que Jesús proclama justo
después de su tentación nos señala el
camino: "Arrepiéntanse y crean en el
Evangelio". Podría ser un buen ejercicio
espiritual mantener estas lecturas a
Goldsboro, N. C.
nuestro alcance durante todo el tiempo
de Cuaresma, un medio para ayudarnos
a volver a una vida vivida según nuestras
promesas bautismales.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Según un dicho árabe, si quieres
conocer bien a una persona, debes convivir durante cuarenta días con ella.
Cuarenta no puede tomarse al pie de la
letra, ya que en las culturas semitas de
siglos pasados cuarenta significaba "un
largo periodo de tiempo". Los judíos,
cristianos y musulmanes provenimos de
esas culturas antiguas y es por eso que
para nosotros el número cuarenta es
muy importante. Algunos ejemplos bíblicos: El diluvió duró cuarenta días.
Moisés habló con Dios durante cuarenta
días en el Sinaí. El pueblo de Israel pasó
cuarenta años en el desierto purificándose de sus pecados. Jesús ayunó
cuarenta días en el desierto antes de iniciar su ministerio público. El profeta
Mahoma tenía cuarenta años cuando
Dios lo llamó; asimismo, según el Islam, Dios creó a Adán en cuarenta días,
y la persona que desea sabiduría necesita ayunar cuarenta días.
No se sabe de dónde viene esta conexión del número cuarenta con la religión.
Algunos astrónomos piensan que es
debido al planeta Venus. Venus (estrella
matutina) viaja por el cielo regresando a
su lugar de origen cada cuarenta años
menos cuarenta días.
