GRATITUDE
Though most people would agree that we should be grateful for the good
things we have received, thanking someone is not always the first thing
that comes to mind when we receive something good from them. In
Luke's Gospel, when Jesus healed the ten lepers, only one of them came
back to thank him. The inclination to give thanks is the virtue of gratitude
and is our way of showing thanks for the benefits we have received.
Gratitude is the part of justice whereby we pay what is due to our
benefactors. It is distinguished from the virtue of religion where we pay
what is due to God and piety where we pay what is due to our parents.
Ultimately God is the source of all good things, and so all our
indebtedness is primarily due to Him, but part of the debt we owe to God
is to be paid by honoring our parents and showing gratitude to our
benefactors.
St Thomas argues that, as far as possible, we should always show
gratitude to our benefactors, but the way and the extent to which we show
our gratitude varies according to circumstances. People may do us favors
for a variety of mixed motives, but when we excel in the virtue of
gratitude, we more readily see the good in people's actions rather than the
evil, and it is for the good that we give them thanks
It doesn't depend so much on the deed itself, but that the heart of the giver
is directed for the good of the receiver. Likewise, the gratitude shown
should originate in the heart. No matter how poor someone is, they can
still show honor and speak well of the giver. In other situations, the
receiver can show their gratitude by doing some act of kindness in return.
In no situation, should gratitude be shown out of a desire not to be
indebted to someone. But part of the virtue of gratitude is being happy to
be indebted to someone. The virtue of gratitude involves choosing the
appropriate moment for repaying a favor.
The great challenge in being truly grateful is that it is not enough just to
return what has been received. Since the original gift was freely given,
the favor returned should also be freely given. This implies something
more has to be paid back, and we are only able to do this if we let
gratitude flow from our hearts.

A Time to Think
Brothers and Sisters, how is your spirit? How are your resolutions
coming for this New Year? The “gurus” of the mind and liars of daily
life tell stories on how to make effective decisions. Resolutions are a
good opportunity to meet the objectives long ago we abandoned in areas
of health, finances, relationships, or love. This is the time of year where
incentives and memberships increased in fitness clubs even more than
summer and beach time. However, as the weeks progress our January resolutions often
fall by the wayside. A survey indicates that many people leave their New Year
resolutions after 3 and a half weeks this Friday, January 23 could be referred to as
Failure Friday.
Today's readings speak of repentance and change, as signs of new beginnings. In the
first reading, when the people of Nineveh heard how Jonah announces that the city will
be destroyed, they drastically change their behavior and lives. The cries of those who
ask the Lord for help in the Psalm are responded to when he teaches his ways. The
second reading of Corinthians, talks about time running out. In Mark today Jesus
proclaims the Gospel to the people of Galilee: "this is the time of fulfillment the
kingdom of God is near repent and believe the gospel...”.
What we see in the first reading is not just about the salvation of a city, but the
credibility of a man in the promise of God. When we believe in the Lord we are able to
change not only our lives, our home but our society. What a miracle was done in Jonah's
life.
Now when we look at the definition of repentance: to turn from sin and pursue
amendment of life, things get more difficult. Why is it so difficult to change? Our mind
plays an important role, likewise our will. But ultimately it is not about what is written
on paper, or in kilos we want to loose, or the muscles you want to develop ... It's about
gaining eternal life.
Many of the New Year's resolutions are abandoned… they concern on the service of the
kingdom of God, or the good of others. It is so easy to get wrapped up in the values of
society which are concerned most of the time, about the appearance, financial wealth,
or being a celebrity. It is time to see the best of you, your family, and your friends with
big doses of humility. Celebrate the now, when the Lord gives you the opportunity to
make your will subject to His, you can love him and why not, feel loved, saved and
healed by Him.
Some of the things that I am sure and without resolutions is that we will have an
amazing day to celebrate the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd, presenting the
Divine Infant, followed by Our Mother Mary (Our Lady of the Clouds), our candidates
for confirmation, and our children younger than 12 years, who want to be blessed and
presented on the same day. We also will bless our candles.
From Colombia, beside my parents and family, I sent you my blessings.

FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION
OF THE LORD
Will be celebrated on Monday, 2
February 2015 at 7:00PM, ICC.
This feast is often known as
“Candlemas Day” since candles are
blessed on this day. Candles are not used liturgically
for the purpose of giving light, but as a mark of joy
and to show honor to God or holy things. You may
bring candles with you to Mass to be blessed. Also at
this time our Confirmation candidates will be
presented to the community and will profess their
faith in front of the altar. Please join us in this special
event.
MEMORIAL OF ST. BLASÉ
Tuesday, 3 February 2015 is the

MEMORIAL OF OUR LADY OF
LOURDES
11 February has become associated
with the celebration of the World Day
of the Sick for the past years. We are
reminded of the gift of life, we are
reminded to pray for the sick and to appreciate and
pray for caregivers. Thank you and God bless all who
provide compassionate care, Extraordinary Ministers
of Holy Communion to the homebound, healthcare
workers and caregivers.

LETTURA DEL GIORNO
CAMBIAMO LA NOSTRA VITA
Nella prima lettura di oggi, Giona,
mandato da Dio per avvisare il
popolo, si precipita per Nineve,
facendo impaurire i cittadini. Ha successo! Essi
si pentono prima che Giona attraversa un terzo
della citta’, e Dio vede “dai loro atti” che si sono
rivoltati dal male.
Poi sentiamo Paolo dire ai Corinzii che “il
mondo nella presente forma sta finendo.” Egli li
incita a cambiare direzione. Non arriva al punto
di dir loro di abbandonare la vita normale, ma li
incita--- misteriosamente--- a vivere come se non
facessero le cose che stanno facendo. Infine,
Gesu’dalla spiaggia grida , “Il regno di Dio e’
arrivato!” I futuri apostoli abbandonano le loro
reti e lo seguono. Cosi’ in tutte le letture udiamo
un invito ad un cambiamento radicale ed
immediato nella nostra vita.

READING OF THE DAY
CHANGE OUR LIVES
In today’s first reading, Jonah, sent
by God to warn the people, storms
through Nineveh, frightening the
citizens out of their wits. It works!
They repent before Jonah makes his way through a
third of the city, and God sees “by their actions”
how they have turned from evil.
Then we hear Paul telling the Corinthians that
“the world in its present form is passing away.” He
calls for a change of heart. He stops short of telling
them to set aside their everyday lives, but still he
urges them—rather mysteriously—to live as
though they aren’t doing the things they’re doing.
Finally, Jesus stands on the shore and cries,
“The kingdom of God is at hand!” The apostles-tobe abandon their nets and follow him. Thus in all
the readings we hear an invitation to a radical and
immediate change in our lives.
TODAY’S READINGS: First Reading: Jonah
3:1-5 Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 7:29-31
Gospel: Mark 1:14-20
The Ninevites heard the preaching of Jonah and
repented of their evil ways, thus experiencing the
Lord’s compassion. Do we repent when we hear
the preaching of Jesus? Do we invest our lives in
the world rather than in God’s kingdom?. From
ORDO 2015
REFLECTION QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK
ADULT: If you have to make a list of ways you
show your belief in the Good News, what would be
on it?
CHILD: What can you do this week to show your
classmates that you believe in the Good News?
O sing a new song to the Lord; sing to the Lord, all the
earth. In his presence are majesty and splendor, strength
and honor in his holy place.
(Cf. Psalm 96 (95):1, 6)

Tiempo de Reflexión
Hermanos, cómo se encuentran nuestros ánimos y especialmente cómo
van nuestras resoluciones para este nuevo año. Los gurús de la mente y la
mentira nos cuentan historias sobre cómo hacer resoluciones efectivas.
Resoluciones son una buena oportunidad para atender los objetivos a largo
abandonados alrededor de la salud, las finanzas, las relaciones, o el amor.
Ésta es la época del año donde se dan más incentivos y se venden más
membresías para los clubes de fitness, más incluso que previo a la época de
verano y playas. Sin embargo, como las semanas de enero progresan nuestras resoluciones
a menudo se quedan en el camino. Una encuesta indica que muchas personas abandonan
sus propósitos de Año Nuevo después de 3 semanas y media, que este viernes 23 de enero
podría ser referido como “viernes de la caída.”
Las lecturas de hoy nos hablan de arrepentimiento y cambio, como señal de nuevos
comienzos. En la primera lectura, cuando la gente de Nínive oye que Jonás anuncia cómo
su ciudad será destruida, cambian drásticamente su comportamiento. El grito de los que
claman en los Salmos pide que el Señor nos enseñe sus caminos. Hay una urgencia en la
segunda lectura de Corintios, que habla sobre el tiempo que corre. Y en el Evangelio de
Marcos hoy Jesús proclama el Evangelio a la gente de Galilea: "Este es el tiempo del
cumplimiento. El reino de Dios está cerca. Convertíos y creed en el Evangelio”.
Lo que vemos en la primera lectura, más que la salvación de una ciudad, es la credibilidad
de un hombre en la promesa que le hace Dios. Cuando creemos en el Señor somos capaces
de cambiar no solo nuestra vida y nuestra casa sino también nuestra sociedad. Qué gran
milagro el del cambio de la vida de Jonás.
Ahora cuando miramos la definición de arrepentirse: apartarse del pecado y dedicarse a la
enmienda de la vida, las cosas se ponen más difíciles. ¿Por qué es tan difícil cambiar?
Nuestra mente juega un papel importante, nuestra voluntad otro tanto. Pero en últimas no
se trata de lo que esté escrito en el papel, o en los kilos que queramos bajar, o los músculos
que queramos subir…les acerca de cómo ir logrando la Vida Eterna.
No es de extrañar resoluciones de Año Nuevo son abandonadas, ya que rara vez se
basan en el servicio del reino de Dios. Es tan fácil quedar envuelto en los valores de la
sociedad que se preocupan por la apariencia o la riqueza financiera. Comienza a ver los
mejor de ti, de tu familia, de tu pareja. Comienza por celebrar que día a día el Señor te
regala la oportunidad para que tú le puedas conocer mejor a Él, le puedas amar y por
qué no, dejarte sentir amado, salvado y sanado por Él.
Algunas de las cosas de las que estoy seguro es que tendremos un día increíble para
celebrar un gran encuentro de parejas el 7 de Febrero; la Presentación del Señor el 2 de
febrero, presentando al Divino Niño, seguido de Nuestra Madre María (Nuestra Señora
de la Nube), nuestros candidatos a la confirmación, a nuestros niños y niñas menores
de 12 años, y bendiciendo nuestros cirios.
Desde Colombia, en compañía de mis padres y familiares, les envió mi bendición.
Padre Cesar Rubiano.

LECTURA DEL DÍA
CAMBIEMOS NUESTRAS VIDAS
En la primera lectura de hoy, Jonás,
enviado por Dios a dar advertencia al
pueblo, atraviesa Nínive como un
huracán, asustando grandemente a los
ciudadanos. ¡Y funcionó! Ellos se arrepienten antes de
que Jonás cruzara menos de la tercera parte de la
ciudad, y Dios ve “por sus obras” que se han
arrepentido del mal.
Luego oímos a Pablo que le dice a los corintios
que “este mundo que vemos es pasajero”. El les hace
un llamado al cambio de corazón. Aunque no llega a
decirles que cambien su vida cotidiana, sí les insta -un
tanto misteriosamente- a vivir como si no hicieran lo
que hacen de costumbre.
Finalmente, Jesús se detiene a la orilla del lago y
grita, “¡El reino de Dios ya está cerca!” Los futuros
apóstoles abandonan sus redes y le siguen. Así es que
en todas las lecturas oímos una invitación a un cambio
inmediato y radical de nuestras vidas.
EN CASO DE MAL CLIMA, las
misas pueden ser canceladas. Si así
fuera, usted puede informarse antes
de venir llamando a la oficina

GRATITUD
Aunque la mayoría de las personas coincidimos en que
debemos ser agradecidos por las cosas buenas que
hemos recibido, agradecerle a alguien no es siempre la
primera cosa que se nos viene a la mente cuando
recibimos algo bueno de los demás. En el evangelio de
Lucas, cuando Jesús curó a diez leprosos, sólo uno de
ellos regresó para darle las gracias. La inclinación para
dar las gracias es la virtud de la gratitud y es nuestra
manera de demostrar agradecimiento por los beneficios
y bondades que hemos recibido.
La gratitud es la parte de la justicia por la cual pagamos
lo que le debemos a nuestros benefactores. Se distingue
de la virtud de religión con la que pagamos lo que le
debemos a Dios, y de la piedad, con la que pagamos lo
que le debemos a nuestros padres. Finalmente Dios es la
fuente de todas las cosas buenas, así que todo se lo
debemos a Él, pero parte de la deuda que le debemos a
Dios debe ser pagada honrando a nuestros padres y
demostrando gratitud a nuestros benefactores.
Santo Tomás afirma que en lo más que podamos,
siempre debemos mostrar gratitud a nuestros
benefactores, pero la forma y el grado para demostrar
nuestra gratitud varían de acuerdo a las circunstancias.
La gente puede hacernos favores por una variedad de
motivos, pero cuando sobresalimos en la virtud de la
gratitud, vemos más fácilmente lo bueno en las acciones
de las personas y no el mal, y es por lo bueno por lo que
damos gracias.
No depende tanto del hecho en sí mismo, sino de cómo
el corazón de la persona que otorga el favor se dirige con
bondad hacia quien lo recibe. Asimismo, la gratitud
demostrada se debe originar en el corazón. No importa
cuán pobre sea una persona, el que recibe el favor debe
demostrar respeto y hablar bien del donador. En otras
situaciones, el receptor puede demostrar su gratitud
realizando un acto de amabilidad en recompensa. En
ninguna situación la gratitud debe mostrarse como el
deseo de no deber nada a nadie. Parte de la virtud de la
gratitud es ser feliz al estar en deuda con alguien. La
virtud de la gratitud implica el escoger el momento
adecuado para recompensar un favor.
El gran reto de ser una persona sinceramente agradecida,
es que no es suficiente con regresar lo que hemos
recibido. Si el regalo original fue dado gratuitamente,
implica que algo más debe ser otorgado en recompensa,
y seremos capaces de hacer esto solamente si dejamos
que la gratitud fluya de nuestros corazones.

EXPLORING PRAYER PRACTICES
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 7:00--9:00 p.m.
CHURCH OF SAINT ANN
1253 Lawrenceville Road, Lawrenceville, N.J.
Dr. Laura Dunham
Lent is a season for deep prayer and reflection focused
on the Paschal Mystery, penitence, and redemptive
suffering. In this two-hour class, we will explore
spiritual and prayer practices that enable us to
accompany Jesus to the cross and beyond. These
include journaling, the daily Examen, fasting, walking
the labyrinth, retreats, and forms of prayer and
meditation such as Lectio Divina, contemplative and
Centering Prayer, the rosary, and the Stations of the
Cross. This class stands alone or may serve as an
introduction to the six week class, "Lent with Mary,"
which begins Feb. 17/18.
For more information contact Gary Maccaroni at 8826491, ext. 116, or at gmacc@churchofsaintann.net.
