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.

ALL SAINTS CATHOLIC CHURCH
Ash Wednesday
February 10, 2016
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,
The season of Lent will be different this year,
because it occurs during a unique time: the Jubilee Year
of Mercy. 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.

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.

ALL SAINTS CATHOLIC CHURCH
and
A bstinence
Our observance of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, a
day of fast and abstinence for Catholics. 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.

Miércoles de Ceniza
10 de febrero de 2016
Estimados hermanos y hermanas en Jesucristo:
La temporada de Cuaresma será diferente este
año porque ocurre durante una época singular: el Año del
Jubileo de la Misericordia. 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.
