Tale of Two Adams: Scott Hahn Reflects on the
First Sunday of Lent
In today's Liturgy, the destiny of the human race is told as the tale of two
"types" of men—the first man, Adam, and the new Adam, Jesus (see 1
Corinthians 15:21-22; 45-59).
Paul's argument in the Epistle is built on a series of contrasts between
"one" or "one person" and "the many" or "all." By one person's disobedience, sin and condemnation entered the world, and death came to reign
over all. By the obedience of another one, grace abounded, all were justified, and life came to reign for all. This is the drama that unfolds in today's First Reading and Gospel.

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 The Perez Family.
THE CANDLES used today at all Masses have been
offered for the spiritual and temporal welfare of
Kathleen McAdam.
THE HOSTS used today at all Masses have been
offered for the spiritual and temporal welfare of
Bridget Wilson.
THE TABERNACLE CANDLE used today at all Masses
has been offered for the repose of the soul of Eloina
Roman.
Formed from the clay of the ground and filled with the breath of God's
own Spirit, Adam was a son of God (see Luke 3:38), created in his image
(see Genesis 5:1-3). Crowned with glory, he was given dominion over the
world and the protection of His angels (see Psalms 8:6-8; 91:11-13). He
was made to worship God—to live not by bread alone but in obedience to
every word that comes from the mouth of the Father.
Adam, however, put the Lord his God to the test. He gave in to the serpent's temptation, trying to seize for himself all that God had already
promised him. But in his hour of temptation, Jesus prevailed where Adam
failed—and drove the devil away.
Still we sin after the pattern of Adam's transgression. Like Adam, we let
sin in the door (see Genesis 4:7) when we entertain doubts about God's
promises, when we forget to call on Him in our hours of temptation. But
the grace won for us by Christ's obedience means that sin is no longer our
master. As we begin this season of repentance, we can be confident in His
compassion, that He will create in us a new heart (see Romans
5:5; Hebrews 8:10). As we do in today's Psalm, we can sing joyfully of our
salvation, renewed in His presence.

maintain and develop programs for the good of our Parish in the

YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY NEWS
Saint Patrick’s Pro-Cathedral, thanks to the wonderful enthusiasm of Father Bismarck, is looking to start up a Youth and Young
Adult Ministry Program. We are seeking to form a CORE Team of young adults and adults who have a heart on fire for Christ, His

Though the Program itself would not start until the Fall, we are gathering everyone together now in an effort to train and equip
them for the adventure of ministry.

Un relato de dos Adanes: Scott Hahn reflexiona
sobre el Primer Domingo de Cuaresma
En la liturgia de hoy, el destino de la raza humana se nos cuenta como un
relato sobre dos “tipos” de hombre: el primero, Adán, y el nuevo Adán,
Jesús (cf. 1 Co 15,21-22; 45-59). San Pablo construye su argumento en la
epístola mediante una serie de contrastes entre “uno” o “una solo hombre”, y “muchos” o “todos”. Por la desobediencia de una persona entró el
pecado y la condena al mundo, y la muerte comenzó a reinar sobre todos.
Por la obediencia de otro, abundó la gracia, todos fueron justificados y la
vida vino a reinar para todos. Este es el drama que se revela en la primera
lectura y el Evangelio de hoy.

El vino, el pan, y la vela del
tabernáculo pueden ser ofrecidas en
honor de un ser querido por un mes.
EL VINO que será distribuido hoy en todas las Misas ha
sido ofrecido por la salud y bienestar de The Perez
Family.
LAS VELAS que serán usadas hoy en todas las Misas
han sido ofrecidas por la salud y bienestar de
Kathleen McAdam.
Adán, que fue formado de la arcilla del suelo y lleno del aliento del propio
Espíritu Divino, era hijo de Dios (cf. Lc 3,38), creado a su imagen (cf. Gn
5,1-3). Coronado de su gloria, se le dio poder sobre toda la tierra y la protección de sus ángeles (cf. Sal 8,6-8; 91,11-13). Fue creado para adorar a
Dios; para vivir no sólo de pan sino de la obediencia a cada palabra que
sale de la boca de Dios. Sin embargo, Adán puso a prueba al Señor su
Dios. Cedió a la tentación de la serpiente, tratando de tomar para sí todo
lo que Dios ya le había prometido. Pero Jesús, a la hora de su tentación,
venció en lo que Adán había fallado y apartó al demonio.
Nosotros aún pecamos, siguiendo los pasos de la caída de Adán. Como él,
dejamos entrar el pecado en nuestra puerta cuando alimentamos dudas
sobre las promesas de Dios, cuando olvidamos llamarlo en nuestros momentos de tentación. Pero la gracia que Cristo nos ganó con su obediencia implica que el pecado ya no es amo nuestro.
Al comenzar este tiempo de arrepentimiento podemos confiar en su compasión, en que Él creará en nosotros un nuevo corazón (cf. Rm 5,5; Hb
8,10). Como lo hemos hecho con el salmo de hoy, podemos cantar alegremente nuestra salvación, renovados en su presencia.
LAS HOSTIAS usadas hoy en todas las Misas han sido
ofrecidas por la salud y bienestar de Bridget Wilson.
RECUERDE DE SAN PATRICIO EN SU TESTAMENTO DE VIDA
LA VELA DEL TABERNACULO usada hoy en todas las
Misas ha sido ofrecida por el descanso de Eloina
Roman.
Al recordar San Patricio en su Testamento de Vida, nos permitirá
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.
