Each Friday of Lent we have a simple Lenten meal in the
hall and then Stations of the Cross in church. I do hope
you will make plans to attend this gathering and to experience the traditional Lenten prayer form of Stations of the
Try to incorporate more daily Mass and individual confession into your Lenten practices. Recall that in Lent we
have two more daily Masses each week and still more confession opportunities in the St. Augustine Chapel.
We are rapidly closing in on that time of year when we
have many special events. At Easter we welcome many
new people into the Church. After Easter we have First
Holy Communions, Confirmations, and graduations. I want
to offer some instructions for any religious gifts you may
seek to purchase for these events. I ask you to recall that
certain gifts should have a specifically Catholic character.
Rather than simply a bare cross, it is customary that
Catholics own and venerate a crucifix, which is a cross
bearing the image of the crucified Christ. I encourage you
to make sure that crucifixes you may purchase have the
image of the Lord crucified. Crucifixes showing Jesus resurrected, or in some other posture, are not true historical
images (as he was not resurrected on the cross). These
also are not traditional expressions of the saving image of
Jesus who has sacrificed himself for our salvation. Also,
when it comes to purchasing Bibles, Catholics should make
sure to own and use a Catholic edition or a Catholic translation of the Bible. A Catholic Bible contains more books
than the edited Protestant versions contain. The Bible is a
Catholic book. It both expresses Catholic faith and it was
compiled and put together by the authority of the Catholic
Church under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Catholics
will want to make sure to own and to use Catholic editions
of the Bible. If you are in doubt, ask your priests for advice. We are happy to help! Parents will want to be particularly attentive to providing your children and relatives
properly Catholic gifts. By the way, we are blessed with a
large RCIA crowd this year. The numbers fluctuate some
for various reasons, but at this year’s Easter Vigil we are
anticipating having 12 baptisms and slightly more than 30
additional people enter the full communion of the Catholic
Church. We are blessed by this, as well as by the excitement that builds for our children and youth who will be
making important steps in their Catholic life with First
Holy Communion and Confirmation. Thanks be to God!
Sincerely in Christ

Lighthouse Catholic Media CD Highlights
Evangelizing Catholics: The Bible, the Eucharist, and
the New Evangelization" is Dr. Scott Hahn's dynamic
presentation of why the New Evangelization is the
greatest priority of the Church at this time, and how
we are all called to share our faith. He shows how
the Eucharist relates to explaining Jesus' death and
resurrection, and how Blessed John Paul II's call for a
New Evangelization must be based on the Eucharist.
Glimpses Along the Way of the Cross: Fr. James Shea
guides us along the Stations of the Cross, teaching us
how to better open our hearts to the suffering of Jesus on His way to Calvary. Weaving together the insights of keen believers like Caryll Houselander,
Archbishop Fulton Sheen, and Dr. James Edwards,
these meditations take us into the depths of Christ's
agony, and back out again into the relief and joy of
what His sacrifice means for us.
Communion to the Homebound

Second Sunday of Lent
Todos los viernes de Cuaresma tenemos una sencilla comida de cuaresma en el salón parroquial y en seguida el Vía
Crucis en la iglesia. Haga planes para asistir y para experimentar la forma de oración tradicional cuaresmal del Vía
En sus prácticas cuaresmales trate de asistir a Misa a diario y a confesarse. Durante la Cuaresma tenemos dos misas diarias cada semana y aún más oportunidades de confesión en la Capilla de San Agustín.
Estamos en la época del año cuando tenemos muchos
eventos especiales. En Pascua damos la bienvenida a nuevas personas en la Iglesia. Después de la Pascua tendremos
las Primeras Comuniones, Confirmaciones, y graduaciones.
Quiero ofrecerles algunas instrucciones para regalos religiosos para estos eventos. Les pido que recordar que ciertos regalos deben tener un carácter específicamente católico. En lugar de simplemente una cruz, es costumbre para
nosotros los católicos un crucifijo, que es una cruz con la
imagen de Cristo crucificado. Les aconsejo que los crucifijos que ustedes compren tengan la imagen del Señor crucificado. Crucifijos que muestran a Jesús resucitado, o de
alguna otra postura, no son imágenes históricas verdaderas
(ya que El no resucitó en la cruz). Esto tampoco son expresiones tradicionales de la imagen salvadora de Jesús,
quien se sacrificó a sí mismo por nuestra salvación. Cuando se trata de comprar Biblias, los católicos deben asegurarse de poseer y utilizar una edición católica o una traducción católica de la Biblia. Una Biblia católica contiene más
libros que las versiones protestantes. La Biblia es un libro
católico. Expresa la fe católica que fue compilada y elaborada por la autoridad de la Iglesia Católica, bajo la inspiración
del Espíritu Santo. Los católicos deben asegurarse de tener
y de usar las ediciones católicas de la Biblia. Si tiene alguna
duda, pregunte a sus sacerdotes para pedir consejo.
¡Estamos dispuestos a ayudarle! Los padres de familia deben estar particularmente atentos a proporcionar a sus
hijos y familiares propiamente regalos católicos. Estamos
bendecidos que este año durante la Vigilia Pascual tendremos 12 bautismos y un poco mas de 30 personas quienes
entraran en plena comunión con la Iglesia Católica. Somos
sido bendecidos por todo esto, así como por el entusiasmo
que genera en cada uno de nuestros niños y jóvenes que
tomaran pasos importantes en su vida católica con la Primera Comunión y la Confirmación. ¡Demos gracias a Dios!
Sinceramente en Cristo, Padre Hamilton
