Manassas, Virginia ALL SAINTS CATHOLIC CHURCH M ass I ntentions This year of 2015-2016, our parish theme is I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the LORD, … plans to give you a future full of hope. Jer 29:11 All Saints is a tithing parish, giving of our time, talent, and treasure so as to give glory to God. World Day for Consecrated Life. In 1997, Pope John Paul II instituted a day of prayer for women and men in consecrated life. This celebration is attached to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on Feb. 2. This feast is formerly known as Candlemas Day; it is the day on which candles are blessed symbolizing Christ who is the light of the world. So too, those in consecrated life are called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all peoples. The celebration of World Day for Consecrated Life is transferred to the following Sunday in order to highlight the gift of consecrated persons for the whole Church. These diverse forms include: Monastic Life, the Orders of Virgins, Hermits, and Institutes completely devoted to contemplation, Apostolic Religious Life, Secular Institutes, Societies of Apostolic Life, and new or renewed forms of the consecrated life (cf. Vita Consecrata, 6-12). The most familiar to us are probably those in religious life taking vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Each form is described in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. World Day Of Prayer for Consecrated Life is today, Sun., Feb. 7. Pray with gratitude for all the women and men consecrated religious who serve the Diocese of Arlington and who have entered religious life from our diocese. Pray too for vocations to the consecrated religious life from young people in our families and parishes. I think of all of the religious sisters who taught me in my youth and all of those with whom I have worked in seminary and now in my priesthood. They have been a blessing.

In itself, mercy means a generous, faithful and compassionate goodness. Mercy has a face! According to Pope Francis, “Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s mercy” (cf. Misericordiae Vultus, no. 1). When he announced the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis asked that “the season of Lent in this Jubilee Year be lived more intensely as a privileged moment to celebrate and experience God’s mercy” (ibid., no. 17). So, this Lent, we are to experience God’s mercy ourselves from God’s own Son Jesus Christ and to offer mercy to others, especially to those in real need, whatever the nature of their need. Mercy, then, has another face: the compassion, forgiveness, assistance and care given to our brothers and sisters. Through more intentional and sustained prayer, we encounter Mercy Incarnate in His Word and through an outward sign in each of the sacraments, especially in Penance and the Holy Eucharist. The Sacrament of Penance is more available in each of our parishes each Wednesday during Lent from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. through our participation in The Light is ON for You initiative. Moreover, through the works of penance or mortification, including fasting, we become more freed and more disciplined in order to listen to Christ’s Word and to embrace Him in prayer and the sacraments. February 7, 2016 Almsgiving —giving generously to those in need —takes on a key focus this Lent, because, in giving alms, we manifest God’s mercy. As Pope Francis states so clearly in his message to us this Lent: “In the corporal works of mercy we touch the flesh of Christ in our brothers and sisters who need to be fed, clothed, sheltered, visited: in the spiritual works of mercy —counsel, instruction, forgiveness, admonishment and prayer —we find more directly our own sinfulness. The corporal and spiritual works of mercy must never be separated” (cf. Message of His Holiness Pope Francis for Lent 2016, no. 3). One tangible way to practice the corporal works of mercy is taking part in the Rice Bowl initiative sponsored by the United States Catholic Bishops and Catholic Relief Services. It is one way in which we can help to alleviate the scourge of global hunger. Lent is given to us disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His Body the Church so that we can reclaim our Baptismal dignity and live more authentically as Christ’s followers. Lent is the season for us to draw closer to Jesus Christ, Mercy Incarnate, so that we can become and remain “convincing heralds of mercy” (cf. Op. Cit., no. 25) all year long, all life long. Yes, Lent is different this year, as each one of us encounters Jesus Christ, Mercy Incarnate, and, thus transformed, becomes mercy incarnate to everyone we encounter. Joining you on the road of Lent, I remain, Faithfully in the Heart of Christ, Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde Bishop of Arlington Ash Wednesday’s Scripture readings call us to a conversion of heart and mind. “Call an assembly! Proclaim a fast!” [Joel 2] Today’s scriptures demand — and so we do. We begin Lent with a reminder to turn to the Lord, just as the people of Israel did with prayers and sacrifices. Jesus reminds us that our prayer, fasting and almsgiving must be done simply, not as a show for others. Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time T he R ite of C hristian I nitiation (RCIA) T he R ite of E lection and of 3 A dults L ent The Rite of Election is about our parish catechumens who are going to the Cathedral of St. Thomas More next Saturday and Sunday for the Rite of Election and Enrollment of Names with Bishop Loverde. The catechumens now become the Elect. This marks the beginning of the period of final, more intense preparation for the sacraments of initiation, during which the elect will be encouraged to follow Christ with greater generosity. Today, on the basis of the testimony of godparents and catechists and of the catechumens’ reaffirmation of their intention, the Church judges their state of readiness and decides on their advancement toward the sacraments of initiation. Thus the Church makes its election, that is, the choice and admission of those catechumens who have the dispositions that make them fit to take part, at the next major celebration, in the sacraments of initiation. This step is called election because the acceptance made by the Church is founded on the election by God, in whose name the Church acts. This step is called the enrollment of names because as a pledge of fidelity the candidates inscribe their names in the parish book that lists those who have been chosen for initiation. After the election, the Church should surround the elect with prayer, so that the entire Church will accompany and lead them to encounter Christ. The baptized but previously uncatechized adults who wish to complete their Christian initiation through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist or those baptized nonCatholic Christians who wish to be received into the full communion of the Catholic Church will participate in the Rite of Calling the Candidates to Continuing Conversion, also at the Cathedral next Sunday. Next Friday, Feb. 12, at 6:00 pm we hold the parish celebration for sending catechumens for election and candidates for recognition by the bishop. This will be a Liturgy of the Word. For the elect and the candidates, Lent is a time of purification and enlightenment. For those of us already baptized, the reminder of our own baptism is joined with the preparation of those seeking Christian initiation, as well as joined in a spirit of repentance, to renew the entire community in celebrating the paschal mystery. This is what Lent is about. L enten L iturgies and D evotions The Light is ON For You. Celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation each Wednesday evening during Lent, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm.

At Mass on Ash Wednesday, the imposition of ashes replicates an ancient penitential practice and symbolizes our dependence upon God’s mercy and forgiveness. During Lent, the baptized are called to renew their baptismal commitment as others prepare to be baptized through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, a period of learning and discernment for individuals who have declared their desire to become Catholics. The three traditional pillars of Lenten observance are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The Church asks us to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms. The fasting that all do together on Fridays is but a sign of the daily Lenten discipline of individuals and households: fasting for certain periods of time, fasting from certain foods, but also fasting from other things and activities. Likewise, the giving of alms is some effort to share this world equally—not only through the distribution of money, but through the sharing of our time and talents. The key to fruitful observance of these practices is to recognize their link to baptismal renewal. We are called not just to abstain from sin during Lent, but to true conversion of our hearts and minds as followers of Christ. We recall those waters in which we were baptized into Christ’s death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ. The text below is from Penitential Practices for Today’s Catholics, (Committee on Pastoral Practices, National Conference of Catholic Bishops: Washington, DC, February, 2001). Penitential Days • Ash Wednesday — This day marks the beginning of the Lenten season. The imposition of ashes is an ancient penitential practice symbolizing our dependence upon God’s mercy and forgiveness. Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence in the Church. • Good Friday — Christ suffered and died for our salvation on Friday. On the Friday that we call “Good,” the Church gathers to commemorate Jesus’ Passion and death. Good Friday is a day of fast and abstinence. The Good Friday fast is the Paschal fast — a fast of anticipation and longing for the Passover of the Lord, which should continue, when possible, through Holy Saturday. • Fridays During Lent — In the United States, the tradition of abstaining from meat on each Friday during Lent is maintained. • Fridays Throughout the Year — In memory of Christ’s suffering and death, the Church prescribes making each Friday throughout the year a penitential day. All of us are urged to prepare appropriately for that weekly Easter that comes with each Sunday. Forms of Penance • Fasting — By refraining from eating, we signify our oneness with the Lord, acknowledge our need for conversion, and give witness to our solidarity with those less fortunate. Catholics who are eighteen years and older and in good health are bound until their fifty-ninth birthday by the obligation to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Traditionally, the canonical obligation of fasting has been understood in the Church as the taking of only one full meal a day. [Editor’s note: Two other light meatless meals, are permitted in accord with local custom as to the amount and kind of food. The consumption of solid food between meals is prohibited, but liquids may be taken at any time.] • Abstinence — In the United States, this penitential practice consists of refraining from the consumption of meat. The Latin Church’s requirement of abstinence binds Catholics after they have celebrated their fourteenth birthday, and it is practiced on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and the Fridays during Lent. Pastors and parents are encouraged to see that children who are not bound by the obligation to fast and abstain are led to appreciate an authentic sense of penance. The following is taken from the website for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Liturgical Resources for Lent ( www . u s cc b . o r g / p r ay e r - a n d - w o r s h i p / l i t u r g i c a l y e a r / l e n t / c at h o l i c - i n f o r m at i o n - o n - l e n t e n - fa s t a n d - a b s t i n e n c e . c f m ). Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.

De por sí, misericordia significa bondad generosa, fiel y compasiva. ¡La misericordia tiene rostro! Según el Papa Francisco: “Jesucristo es el rostro de la misericordia del Padre” (cf. Misericordiae Vultus, no. 1). Al anunciar el Año del Jubileo de la Misericordia, el Papa Francisco pidió que “la Cuaresma de este Año Jubilar sea vivida con mayor intensidad, como momento fuerte para celebrar y experimentar la misericordia de Dios” (ibid., no. 17). De manera que, en esta Cuaresma, nosotros mismos vamos a experimentar la misericordia de Dios proveniente de Jesucristo, el propio Hijo de Dios, y a ofrecer misericordia a los demás, en particular a quienes tengan una necesidad real de cualquier naturaleza. Entonces, la misericordia tiene otro rostro: la compasión, el perdón, la asistencia y el cuidado dados a nuestros hermanos y hermanas. Por medio de una oración más intencional e ininterrumpida, encontramos a la Misericordia Encarnada en la palabra de Dios y a través de una señal externa en cada uno de los Sacramentos, particularmente en la Penitencia y la Sagrada Eucaristía. El Sacramento de la Penitencia se ofrecerá más ampliamente a todos en cada una de nuestras parroquias todos los miércoles de Cuaresma de 6:30 p.m. a 8:30 p.m. por medio de nuestra participación en la iniciativa La luz está encendida para ti. Además, por medio de actos de penitencia o mortificación, como el ayuno, nos liberamos y disciplinamos más con el fin de escuchar la palabra de Cristo y abrazar al Señor en la oración y los Sacramentos. La Cuaresma es el tiempo litúrgico de conversión, que marca la Iglesia para prepararnos a la gran fiesta de la Pascua. Es tiempo para arrepentirnos de nuestros pecados y de cambiar algo de nosotros para ser mejores y poder vivir más cerca de Cristo. La Cuaresma dura 40 días; comienza el Miércoles de Ceniza y termina antes de la Misa de la Cena del Señor del Jueves Santo. A lo largo de este tiempo, sobre todo en la liturgia del domingo, hacemos un esfuerzo por recuperar el ritmo y estilo de verdaderos creyentes que debemos vivir como hijos de Dios. El color litúrgico de este tiempo es el morado que significa luto y penitencia. Es un tiempo de reflexión, de penitencia, 7 de febrero, 2016 La limosna—el acto de dar con generosidad a los necesitados—adquiere un enfoque importante en esta Cuaresma porque al darla manifestamos la misericordia de Dios. Como dice claramente el Papa Francisco en el mensaje que nos envía en esta Cuaresma: Mediante las [obras] corporales … tocamos la carne de Cristo en los hermanos y hermanas que necesitan ser nutridos, vestidos, alojados, visitados, mientras que las espirituales tocan más directamente nuestra condición de pecadores: aconsejar, enseñar, perdonar, amonestar, rezar. Por tanto, nunca hay que separar las obras corporales de las espirituales” (cf. Mensaje de Cuaresma de Su Santidad el Papa Francisco, 2016, no. 3). Una forma tangible de practicar las obras corporales de misericordia consiste en participar en la iniciativa del plato de arroz patrocinada por los Obispos Católicos de los Estados Unidos y Catholic Relief Services. Es una forma que nos permite ayudar a aliviar el azote del hambre mundial. La Cuaresma se nos da como discípulos de Cristo y miembros de su Cuerpo, la Iglesia, para que podamos recuperar nuestra dignidad bautismal y vivir más auténticamente como seguidores de Cristo. La Cuaresma es la temporada propicia para acercarnos más a Jesucristo, Misericordia Encarnada, con el fin de convertirnos en heraldos convincentes de misericordia (cf. Op. cit., no. 25) y seguir siéndolo todo el año, toda la vida. Sí, la Cuaresma de este año es diferente, puesto que cada uno de nosotros al encontrarse con Jesucristo, Misericordia Encarnada, y transformarse por medio de ello, se convierte en misericordia encarnada para todos los que encontremos a nuestro paso. Unidos a ustedes en el camino de la Cuaresma, me suscribo, Fielmente en el Corazón de Cristo, Monseñor Paul S. Loverde Obispo de Arlington de conversión espiritual; tiempo de preparación al misterio pascual. En la Cuaresma, Cristo nos invita a cambiar de vida. La Iglesia nos invita a vivir la Cuaresma como un camino hacia Jesucristo, escuchando la Palabra de Dios, orando, compartiendo con el prójimo y haciendo obras buenas. Es el tiempo del perdón y de la reconciliación fraterna. Cada día, durante toda la vida, hemos de arrojar de nuestros corazones el odio, el rencor, la envidia, los celos que se oponen a nuestro amor a Dios y a los hermanos. En Cuaresma, aprendemos a conocer y apreciar la Cruz de Jesús. Con esto aprendemos también a tomar nuestra cruz con alegría para alcanzar la gloria de la resurrección.
