Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 7, 2016
I will give thanks to you, O LORD,
with all my heart,
for you have heard the words
of my mouth.
-- Psalm 138:1
that our Annual Catholic Appeal is off to a TREMENDOUS
Last Saturday evening, the Knights of Columbus, Bishop
Salpointe Council #4584, hosted over 400 of us for the
26th year to a wonderful banquet at the newly-refurbished
Columbian Hall!
Celebrating the Ordination of Fr. Rob Neske to the
Priesthood, Bishop Kicanas joined us in praising God for
His many gifts to us as a Parish. Our Bishop spoke movingly
of the needs of our Diocesan Church and the many ways
in which the Annual Catholic Appeal touches lives with
the mercy of God. Bishop Kicanas also spoke about the
“Cathedral Square Project” and the renovation of the
Diocesan buildings around the Cathedral, the “Mother
Church of the Diocese of Tucson”.
We listened, we talked, we cheered, we talked, we enjoyed
the wonderful dinner, listened and (some) danced to the
music of parishioner Joe Anton’s Desert Swing Band, we
talked, we marveled at the energy of the Life Teens and
Confirmation students who waited the tables, and the great
team of Knights of Columbus who ran the serving lines. We
cheered for those who won the door prizes, and “connected”
with fellow parishioners in an all together wonderful evening
of fun!
And when the evening concluded, parishioners donated/
pledged $56,000 – which is 44% of our Parish Goal! That is
the strongest “launch” so far in the past 26 years!
(After last Sunday’s ACA envelopes were counted, we are
now at a pledge total of $70,800 – which is 55% of our Parish
Goal – all in this first week!!!)
IF you have not yet done so, please consider making your
pledge to the Annual Catholic Appeal this week! With such
a great start, we are well on our way – but that means
that each one will have to make a contribution and show
your support for our 26 Diocese-wide ministries! EVERY
contribution of WHATEVER AMOUNT matters – please
make your pledge/donation as soon as possible!
Many have asked, and the answer is YES, Father Rob has
been assigned to St. Andrew’s as a Parochial Vicar (Associate
Priest) and he will be fully engaged in ministry here. And the
Bishop has asked Father Rob to give as much assistance as
possible to Our Lady of the Mountains Parish, Holy Family
Parish (Fort Huachuca) and All Saints’ School!
A very “full plate” – and our Father Rob has most graciously
and generously said “YES!”
Please pray for him, as he begins his Priestly ministry among
us – and pray for Vocations!
Articles for the bulletin must be in the
parish office before Noon on Tuesday.
Thank you for your cooperation.

This week’s Question: “What is the ‘Eucharistic Fast’?”
The answer to last week’s Question: “What are the Obligations of Fasting?”
Formerly, fast days consisted of all Lenten days except Sunday. Today, the Days of Fast AND
Abstinence (from meat) are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. All the Fridays of Lent are
days of abstinence from meat. The Church Law binds as follows: the law of abstinence (not eating meat)
obliges those who have completed their fourteenth year. The law of Fast (only one full meal, with nothing
between meals) obliges those who have completed their eighteenth year until the beginning of their 60th
Simply put: If you are over 14 years old – you abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday
and all the Fridays of Lent.
If you are between 19 and 59 – you eat only one full meal (no meat) on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
(If you would like to be as smart as the “Quiz Master” – pick up a copy of the Catholic Source Book,
available in the Parish Office, for only $25!)

El sendero de la vida
Oh Dios de reconciliación,
tú eres rico en bondad y lento a la cólera.
En tu gran misericordia,
nos enviaste a Jesús, tu Hijo,
para mostrarnos el sendero de la vida.
Al iniciar nuestra jornada cuaresmal,
llénanos de energía para caminar con Cristo.
Que el ayuno, la oración y la limosna,
nos hagan tener hambre de ti, Señor,
y nos perfeccionen en el amor a ti y al prójimo.
En este tiempo propicio,
purifica nuestro corazón
y llénanos con el amor de tu Santo Espíritu
para que seamos compañeros de camino,
misericordiosos con todos.
Te lo pedimos por nuestro Señor Jesucristo,
tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo
en la unidad del Espíritu Santo,
y es Dios, por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

Volvámonos al Señor
Lecturas del día: Joel 2:12 – 18; Salmo 51:3 – 4, 5 – 6ab,
12 –13, 14 y 17; 2 Corintios 5:20 —6:2; Mateo 6:1– 6, 16– 18.
Hoy, la Iglesia se embarca en un retiro de cuarenta días de
preparación para la celebración de la Pascua. Nos unimos a
los elegidos, a los que se preparan a recibir los tres sacramentos de la iniciación cristiana, para serenarnos y examinar lo que necesita ser transformado en nuestra vida. A
usted, ¿dónde le ha consumido el pecado el corazón, alejándolo de Dios? El pecado se infiltra hasta hacerse hábito. Hay
que examinar cada área de nuestra vida para descubrir si
hay oscuridad. Las palabras del profeta Joel siguen resonando hoy. Necesitamos arrepentirnos y volvernos a Dios.
La conversión no es fácil, ni se realiza de un día a otro.
Requiere disciplina, perseverancia y práctica. Los tres ejercicios de piedad cuaresmal, oración, ayuno y limosna, nos
ayudan a abrirnos a la bondad de Dios y a acercarnos al
corazón de Cristo. En estos cuarenta días, haga que esas
prácticas se le vuelvan hábitos para remover el pecado y lo
conduzcan a reflexionar en su propia vida ante Cristo mientras lo zambullen en el misterio pascual cristiano.
En el evangelio, Jesús nos instruye a no ser ostentosos
cuando oramos, ayunamos o damos limosna. Meditando en
las palabras del salmo, considere lo que usted ha sacrificado
(ayuno), el tiempo que dedica a orar y lo que podría dar en
solidaridad, como un modo de abrazar la Cuaresma y purificar su corazón.
La semana en casa
Lunes, 8 de febrero de 2016
A donde quiera que Jesús iba, atraía a la gente. Apenas llegar,
ya lo buscaban para que los curara. Jesús restableció a aquellos que se acercaban a él en busca de plenitud de vida. Él
quiere que todos estemos sanos para participar de su vida.
¿Necesita usted ser curado? Reflexione en silencio y pídale a
Cristo que lo restaure en la vida plena. Lecturas del día:
1 Reyes 8:1 – 7, 9 – 13; Salmo 132:6 – 7, 8 – 10; Marcos 6:53 – 56.
Martes, 9 de febrero de 2016
Tradiciones humanas
Jesús denuncia que los fariseos están atrapados en las
tradiciones humanas y no se enfocan en los mandamientos.
Él no quiere que nuestras tradiciones humanas se vuelvan en
dios nuestro. ¿Hay alguna tradición humana que perturbe
nuestra relación con Jesús? En siglos pasados, en martes de
carnaval, las casas quedaban limpias de dulces y golosinas
como preparación al ayuno cuaresmal. Prepare esta noche
una cena festiva con familiares y amigos para discutir cómo
observar la Cuaresma y volver a centrarse en Dios. Lecturas
del día: 1 Reyes 8:22 – 23, 27 – 30; Salmo 84:3, 4, 5 y 10, 11;
Marcos 7:1 – 13.
Miércoles, 10 de febrero de 2016
Miércoles de Ceniza
A lo largo de cuarenta días, la Iglesia acompañará a los que
se preparan a recibir los sacramentos en la Pascua. Para ellos,
estas semanas son de purificación y de iluminación. Es un
tiempo de intensa oración, ayuno y enriquecimiento
espiritual. Nos unimos a los elegidos liberándonos del
pecado mediante la oración, el ayuno y las limosnas, para
poder ser renovados y compartir la alegría de la resurrección.
Escoja usted algún ejercicio de Cuaresma que le acerque al
corazón de Cristo. ¡Saboree la Cuaresma! Lecturas del día:
Joel 2:12 – 18; Salmo 51:3 – 4, 5 – 6ab, 12 – 13, 14 y 17; 2 Corintios
5:20 — 6:2; Mateo 6:1 – 6, 16 – 18.
Jueves, 11 de febrero de 2016
Tomar la cruz
La invitación de Jesús en el evangelio no es fácil. Explicita
que los discípulos deben llevar sus cruces, y que tal acto es
vivificante. Vida y muerte han sido puestas ante nosotros
para escoger cuál ruta seguiremos. Escoger una vida enraizada en Jesús no será fácil, pero promete vida eterna, una
vida llena de alegría. Intente pasar algún tiempo contemplando el evangelio de hoy. ¿A dónde lo invita Jesús? Lecturas
del día: Deuteronomio 30:15 – 20; Salmo 1:1 – 2, 3, 4 y 6;
Lucas 9:22 – 25.
Viernes, 12 de febrero de 2016
¿Por qué ayunamos en la Cuaresma? Isaías conecta el ayuno
con la justicia. Ayunamos para ayudar a manifestar el Reino
de Dios, para mejorar el mundo. No ayunamos para tener a
Dios contento o para cumplir una ley. Ayunamos para
vaciarnos de nosotros mismos y poder abrirnos a la gracia de
Dios que nos motiva a servir a otros. Aguardamos el retorno
del novio, entonces ya no habrá más ayunos. Ofrezca el
ayuno de hoy por los arraigados injustamente y por los oprimidos. Lecturas del día: Isaías 58:1 – 9a; Salmo 51:3 – 4, 5 – 6ab,
18 – 19; Mateo 9:14 – 15.
Sábado, 13 de febrero de 2016
El evangelio describe a Jesús como médico para los enfermos. Los médicos ayudan a restaurar la vida y a curar lo que
nos aflige. La promesa en este pasaje es que no importa cuán
enfermos estemos, Cristo nos ama y nos llama junto a sí.
¿Cuáles son las áreas pecaminosas de la vida que necesitan
ser sanadas? Al término de esta semana, piense delante de
Dios en todo lo que hizo a lo largo de ella. Lecturas del día:
Isaías 58:9b – 14; Salmo 86:1 – 2, 3 – 4, 5 – 6; Lucas 5:27– 32.

Psalm 51
Wednesday, Ash Wednesday,
has Psalm 51 as the responsorial
psalm. “Praying Psalm 51
acknowledging our involvement
in every kind of human
failing…Psalm 51 allows no
protests of innocence or claims
of extenuating circumstances. [It
is] a passionate appeal to God’s
compassion…this psalm asks for
a new act of creation, which in
Hebrew usage is something that
God alone can do. Only if God
creates in us a clean heart will
we be able to live in God’s
presence and in communion with
God’s Spirit, the source of joy
and salvation.
This then is the way that we are
to begin our Lent: with an honest
recognition of our flawed
humanity, a bold reliance on
God’s boundless mercy, and an
even more audacious request that
God create in us a new heart that
belongs to God alone.”

PEACE begins with us
By Connie Clark
“Stepping stone #2:
Get more enjoyment out of your trip. Bring a map.
The difference between a life of peace and a life of anxiety is
prayer. Think about it. When we don’t know where we’re
going, we use a map or GPS. So why don’t we spend more
time consulting the map that directs our whole lives? If
you’ve been away from prayer, all you need is a simple one
to get started. Visualizing a scene from the life of Jesus, and
putting yourself there with him, is a great way for young
children to pray, especially when they’re in stressful
situations. You can help children learn to pray this way by
sharing stories about Jesus. Use a children’s Bible if you have
one, or simply sit together quietly and talk about it.”
Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting
oneself in the hands of God, at his
disposition, and listening to his voice in the
depth of our hearts. Blessed Mother Teresa
Jubilee Year of Mercy…
Vatican City, Jan 26, 2016 (CNA/EWTN News).- By Ann Schneible
“In his 2016 Lenten message, Pope Francis called the
faithful to place special emphasis on the spiritual and
corporal works of mercy this Lent, taking into account the
current Jubilee Year of Mercy.
“God’s mercy transforms human hearts; it enables us,
through the experience of a faithful love, to become
merciful in turn,” the Pope wrote in the short document,
released Tuesday by the Vatican.
The spiritual and corporal works of mercy, the pontiff said,
“remind us that faith finds expression in concrete everyday
actions meant to help our neighbors in body and spirit: by
feeding, visiting, comforting and instructing them.”
“On such things will we be judged,” he said.”

“This documentary is an
important contribution to
the robust and timely
debate that has arisen
surrounding Pius’ wartime
record... this gripping
documentary explores the
difficult choices Pius XII
faced during the Second
World War, and provides
convincing proof that his
bold, yet discreet, prophetic
actions saved tens of
thousands of Jewish lives
and paved the way for a
new era of Catholic-Jewish
relations that have
deepened over the past 50
