“Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness
for the child of her womb? Even should she forget, I
will never forget you.” How difficult it is to accept or
even believe these words. God tells us “I will never
forget you” and yet we continue to doubt and question
his presence, his assistance in the time of need. Why is
it that we continue to doubt him? “So do not worry and
say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?'
or 'What are we to wear?' All these things the pagans
seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them
all.”

The wine, hosts, and tabernacle candle
may be offered in honor of a loved one
for a month.
THE WINE consecrated and distributed at all
Masses today has been offered for the spiritual and
temporal welfare of Segundo Perez.
THE CANDLES used today at all Masses have been
offered for the spiritual and temporal welfare of
Alfred Cifelle.
THE HOSTS used today at all Masses have been
offered for the spiritual and temporal welfare of
Eloina Roman.
THE TABERNACLE CANDLE used today at all Masses
has been offered for the repose of the soul of
Rev. Chris Anyanwu.
Trust is all God is asking of us. He desires that we
believe he cares and supplies all of our needs. This
request depends also on our detachments to material
things, because they vanish like smoke in the air, “but
seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given you besides. ”
Worrying does not help our soul nor our physical
health. Surrender all of your worries to Jesus that is
what he desires, that you may say: Lord, I give you all
of my life, with its joys and pains, with its richness and
its poverty. And trust that He will never forget you.
With much love,
Fr. Bismarck

Yo Nunca Me Olvidare de Ti
"¿Puede acaso una madre olvidarse de su creatura hasta
dejar de enternecerse por el hijo de sus entrañas?
Aunque hubiera una madre que se olvidara, yo nunca me
olvidaré de ti." Cuá n difícil es a cepta r y a un ma s creer
estas palabras. El Senor nos dice: “yo nunca me olvidare
de ti” y sin embargo continuamos dudando y cuestionando la presencia de Dios y su ayuda en momentos de
necesidad. ¿Por qué seguimos dudando de él? "Así que
no te preocupes y di: '¿Q ué comeremos o qué beberemos
o con qué nos vestiremos? Los que no conocen a Dios se
desviven por todas estas cosas; pero el Padre celestial ya
sabe que ustedes tienen necesidad de ellas. ”
Confianza en él es todo lo que Dios nos pide. Él desea
que creamos que él cuida y suplirá en todas nuestras
necesidades. Este pedido depende también de nuestro
desapego a las cosas materiales, porque ellas se
desvanecen como humo en el aire, "Por con siguie nte ,
busquen primero el Reino de Dios y su justicia, y todas
estas cosas se les darán por añadidura." Preocupa rse no
es saludable para nuestra alma ni el cuerpo. Entrega
todas tus preocupaciones a Jesús que es lo que desea,
para que digas: Señor, te doy toda mi vida, con sus alegrías y dolores, con su riqueza y su pobreza. Y confía que
Él nunca te olvidará.
Con mucho amor,
LAS VELAS que serán usadas hoy en todas las Misas
han sido ofrecidas por la salud y bienestar de Alfred
Cifelle.

LAS HOSTIAS usadas hoy en todas las Misas han sido

RECUERDE DE SAN PATRICIO EN SU TESTAMENTO DE VIDA

Anyanwu.

mantener y desarrollar programas para el bien de nuestra Parroquia
en el futuro.

ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK: 2017 LENTEN REGULATIONS
1.
The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. If possible, the Fast on Good Friday is
continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “Pascal Fast” to honor the suffering and death of our Lord
Jesus, and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate more readily His Resurrection. The other Fridays of Lent
are days of Abstinence. On a day of Fast, only one (1) meal is permitted, and two (2) smaller meals, which, if added together,
would not exceed the main meal in quantity. Those between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to Fast.
2.
The obligation to observe the laws of Fast and Abstinence “substantially”, or as a whole, is a serious obligation.
3.
The Fridays of the year, outside of Lent, are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self-denial as penance.
4.
The time for fulling the Pascal Precept (the Easter Duty aka receiving the Most Holy Eucharist at least once a year) extends
from the First Sunday of Lent, March 5, 2017 to The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, June 11, 2017.
