25 LECCIONES DE VIDA
Por Regina Brett
1.
La vida no es justa, pero aun así buena.
2.
La vida es demasiado corta para perder el tiempo odiando a
alguien.
3.
Tu trabajo no te cuidará cuando estés enfermo. Tus amigos y
padres sí. Mantente en comunicación.
4.
No tienes que ganar cada discusión. Puedes quedar de acuerdo en
no estar de acuerdo.
5.
Llora con alguien. Es más sanador que cuando lloras a solas.
6.
Está bien enojarse con Dios. Él puede aguantarlo.
7.
Haz las paces con tu pasado para que no arruine tu presente.
8.
Está bien dejar que los niños le vean llorar.
9.
No compare su vida a la de otros. Cada viaje por la vida es
distinto.
10.
Si una relación tiene que mantenerse secreto, no debe estar en ella.
11.
Todo puede cambiar en un parpadear de ojos. Pero no te
preocupes, Dios nunca parpadea.
12.
Lo que no mata, engorda.
13.
Nadie está a cargo de tu felicidad excepto tú.
14.
Marque cada cosa que pueda considerar un desastre con estas
palabras: “En cinco años, ¿esto será importante?”
15.
Siempre elija la vida.
16.
Perdónele todo a todos.
17.
Lo que otros piensen de usted no es asunto suyo.
18.
El tiempo lo cura casi todo. Dale tiempo al tiempo.
19.
Por más buena o mala que sea una situación, lo cierto es que
cambiará.
20.
Cree en los milagros.
21.
Dios te ama por ser quién es Dios, no por algo que hiciste o
dejaste de hacer.

WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
The Gospel according to Mark marks the beginning of the public mystery
of Jesus where he reveals his teachings and his power over an “unclean”
spirit. Trying very hard to understand what they had just witnessed, the
multitude of people congregated described not only what had happened
but also the manner in which it was done: Jesus teaches with authority, an
authority that reaches limits over and above evil. What greatness this is that
not only does he astonish the living but also chases away the evil spirit. Nevertheless, with
all this the multitude is still not capable of identifying the source of this authority and
power. The possessed one recognized Him and shouted “I know who you are—the Holy
One of God!”
Throughout the Gospel of Mark, on which we will reflect throughout this year, we continue
to hear about the miracles of Jesus, with one persistent question, “Who is this man?” This
question will continue to concern the people until the moment of his death on the cross,
when another voice –having suffered- reveals Jesus’ identity: the Roman soldier watched as
Jesus took his last breath and said in a loud voice, “Truly this man was the Son of God!”
We can admire Jesus’ teachings. And why not? They have been of great influence in the
western world and beyond. We can admire the miracles written in the Gospels. But, do we
really understand and trust in the truth from He who has told us? Jesus is not only a “good
man” or “the best of men”; He is the Holy One of God, the Son of God.
If we truly understood Jesus’ identity we would not have so many problems or take so
many wrong paths; we would not abandon our faith or much less our Church. If we had a
deeper relationship with Him, nothing or no one could take away our happiness, salvation,
health, or holiness.
Pope Francis cited the words of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, when he reminded us
that, “Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter
with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.”
We will have difficulties, storms, illnesses, and obstacles, but nothing should stand in our
way. Let us continue to pray for each other so that all these fleeting things will not take
away our new horizon that is permanent and eternal: our Eternal Life.
My brothers and sisters let us remember that if we who follow Christ find things murky at
times, how much more do those who do not know Him? The opportunity to be a live
witness of Christ is unique. Remember your brothers and sisters in Christ, your neighbor,
and remember to give a hand to those in need, don’t close off your heart to them or deny
your service to them. By giving of yourself others may see the silhouette of Christ, which
never leaves us, in you, and may understand what the soldier and those that were healed
understood: Jesus is the Son of God, He is here in His Kingdom, our midst.
Lord Jesus Christ, draw our hearts to your heart that we may know you as you are: the Holy
One of God, the Son of God, our Savior and Lord, live and in our midst.

LETTURA DEL GIORNO
AUTORITA’ DA DIO
Secondo Mose’, il popolo decise che
non voleva piu’ sentire la voce di Dio
direttamente. Era troppo spaventosa.
Perche’ Dio non poteva invece
mandare maestri umani, profeti? Dio fu d’accordo,
ma con una cautela. Il popolo doveva ascoltare quei
maestri, perche’ loro parlavano in nome di Dio. Ma
questo accordo aveva i suoi problemi, per loro e per
noi. Come sappiamo che questo maestro viene da
Dio? E se il maestro viene da Dio, sono tutte le parti
dei suoi insegnamenti intese per me? Abbiamo la
Chiesa e le scritture per aiutarci con queste domande,
ma ci sono sempre dei dubbi.
Quello e’ il potente significato della frase nel
Vangelo di oggi: “Il popolo fu sorpreso dai suoi
insegnamenti, poiche’ insegnava come uno che ha
autorita’e non come gli scribi.” Il popolo sapeva che
questo Gesu’ era autentico---veramente un maestro
mandato da Dio. Lo sapevano da come lo sentivano.
OLD PALMS
We will be collecting old palms till

INCLEMENT WEATHER
In case of inclement weather on the

number 609-695-6089 with any change in mass

LENTEN REGULATIONS
Here is what the Catholic Church in the United States
asks of us as baptized Catholics:
1.
The days of fast (only one meal) and
abstinence (no meat) are ASH WEDNESDAY
(18th February 2015) and GOOD FRIDAY (3rd
April 2015)
2.
The other Fridays of Lent are DAYS OF
ABSTINENCE (No meat).
Those between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to
fast (only one full meal) as above. From the age of 14,
people are also obliged to abstain (no meat: this
obligation prohibits the eating of meat, but not eggs,
milk products or condiments of any kind, even though
made from animal fat). The obligation, the privilege
really, of receiving the Eucharist at least once a year -- often called “Easter duty” --- for those in the state
of grace should still be fulfilled during the period
from the First Sunday of Lent, February 22nd to
Trinity Sunday, May 31st, 2015.
Save us, O Lord our God! And gather us from the
nations, to give thanks to your holy name, and make it our
glory to praise you. (Psalm 106 (105):47)

READING OF THE DAY
AUTHORITY FROM GOD
According to Moses, the people
decided they didn’t want to hear
God’s voice directly any more. It was
much too frightening. Why couldn’t
God send human teachers, prophets, instead? God
agreed, but with a warning. The people had better
listen to those teachers, because they spoke in
God’s name.
That arrangement, though, had its own
problems, for them and for us. How do I know this
teacher is truly from God? And if the teacher is
from God, are all parts of the teaching meant for
me? We have the Church and scripture to help us
with those questions, but still there are always a
few loose ends.
That is the powerful significance of the
sentence in today’s Gospel: “The people were
astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as
one having authority and not as the scribes.” The
people knew that this Jesus was authentic—truly a
teacher sent by God. They knew it by hearing him.
TODAY’S
READINGS:
First
Reading:
Deuteronomy 18:15-20 Second Reading: 1
Corinthians 7:32-35 Gospel: Mark 1:21-28
Jesus came as one who spoke in the name of the
Lord, teaching with authority. Let us listen to his
voice and adhere to him above anything else.
From ORDO 2015
REFLECTION QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK
ADULT: What are the evils in today’s world that
you pray God will free us from?
CHILD: Name some bad things that you pray Jesus
will take away from our world.

¡SABEMOS QUIÉN ERES!
El evangelio de Marcos marca la inauguración del ministerio público de Jesús
con una escena donde demuestra su enseñanza y su poder sobre un espíritu
"impuro”. Tratando de comprender lo que han observado, la multitud reunida
describen no solo los hechos sino la forma en cómo dirige su enseñanza: Él
enseña con autoridad, y ésta es tal, que incluso alcanza los límites sobre el mal,
qué grandeza la de su actuar que no solo asombra a los vivos sino que también
aleja a los demonios. Sin embargo, con todo esto, la multitud no parece ser capaz de identificar la
fuente de esta autoridad y poder. El poseído lo reconoce y grita “¡Yo sé quién eres - el Santo de
Dios!"
A lo largo del Evangelio de Marcos con el cual meditaremos a lo largo de este año, seguiremos
escuchando acerca de los milagros de Jesús, y la pregunta persistirá: ¿Quién es este hombre?
Esta inquietud continuará hasta el momento de su muerte en cruz, cuando otra voz –haciendo
sufrir-, revelará la identidad de Jesús: el soldado romano que ve morir a Jesús dice en voz alta:
"¡Verdaderamente este hombre era Hijo de Dios!"
Podemos admirar las enseñanzas de Jesús. ¿Y por qué no? Ellas han tenido una gran influencia en
el mundo occidental y mucho más allá. Podemos admirar los milagros descritos en los evangelios.
Pero, ¿realmente comprendemos y permanecemos en la verdad de aquel que nos las ha
comunicado? Jesús, no es simplemente un "buen hombre" o el " mejor de los hombres", Él es el
Santo de Dios, el Hijo de Dios.
Si verdaderamente comprendiéramos la identidad de Jesús, no correríamos en falsos escapes, no
tendríamos tantos problemas, no abandonaríamos nuestra fe y mucho menos nuestra Iglesia…Si
tuviéramos una relación más profunda con El, nada ni nadie nos quitaría nuestra felicidad,
salvación, salud y santidad.
El Papa Francisco, al citar las palabras de su predecesor, el Papa Benedicto XVI, nos recuerda
que: "Ser cristiano no es el resultado de una decisión ética o de seguir una ideología, o un
compromiso social, sino que es el encuentro con un acontecimiento transformador, con una
Persona, que da un nuevo horizonte a la vida y una orientación decisiva a nuestras acciones".
Tendremos dificultades, tormentas, enfermedades y obstáculos, pero nada nos podrá vencer.
Seguimos orando unos por otros para que todo esto que es pasajero, no nos quite o aleje de
nuestro horizonte que es permanente y eterno: Vida Eterna.
Amigos y hermanos, recordemos que si las cosas en ocasiones son obscuras para nosotros, que
seguimos a Jesús, ¿cuánto más no lo será para aquellos que no le conocen? La oportunidad de ser
testimonio viviente de Jesús es única. Siempre acuérdate de tus semejantes, de tus vecinos,
recuerda si puedes dar una mano aquellos que lo necesitan, no te niegues en tu corazón y en tus
acciones al servicio, pues al hacerlo otros podrán ver en ti el rostro de Jesús que nunca nos deja
solos, y podrán reconocer como el soldado o los curados lo hicieron, que Jesús el Hijo de Dios,
está aquí y en medio de su Reino.
Jesús, atrae nuestros corazones a tu corazón para poder conocerte tal como eres: ¡el Santo de
Dios, el Hijo de Dios, nuestro Salvador y Señor, vivo y en medio de nosotros!
Padre Cesar Rubiano.

LECTURA DEL DÍA
AUTORIDAD DE DIOS
De acuerdo a Moisés, el pueblo
decidió que no quería ya más oír la
voz directa de Dios. Era demasiado
aterradora. ¿Por qué no les podía Dios enviar a
maestros o profetas humanos? Dios aceptó pero
con una advertencia. El pueblo debía escuchar a
estos maestros, puesto que hablaban en nombre de
Dios.
Ese acuerdo, sin embargo, resultó en otros
problemas, para ellos y para nosotros. ¿Cómo sé si
este maestro es en realidad de Dios? Y si el
maestro es de Dios, ¿están todas las partes de su
enseñanza dirigidas a mí? Tenemos la Iglesia y la
Sagrada Escritura para ayudarnos con todas estas
preguntas, pero así y todo siempre quedan algunos
cabos sueltos.
Ese es el poderoso significado de la frase en el
Evangelio de hoy: "Los oyentes quedaron
asombrados de sus palabras, pues enseñaba como
quien tiene autoridad y no como los escribas". El
pueblo sabía que este Jesús era auténtico
-verdaderamente un maestro enviado por Dios. Lo
sabían con sólo escucharle.

25 LIFE LESSONS
Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old,
of Cleveland, Ohio.
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
3. Your job won't take care of you when you are
sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
4. You don't have to win every argument. Agree
to disagree.
5. Cry with someone. It's more healing than
crying alone.
6. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
7. Make peace with your past so it won't screw
up the present.
8. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
9. Don't compare your life to others as each
journey is different.
10. If a relationship has to be a secret, you
shouldn't be in it.
11. Everything can change in the blink of an eye;
don't worry, God never blinks.
12. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make
you stronger.
13. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
14. Frame every so-called disaster with these
words 'In five years, will this matter?'
15. Always choose life.
16. Forgive everyone everything.
17. What other people think of you is none of
your business.
18. Time heals almost everything. Give time,
time.
19. However good or bad a situation is, it will
change.
20. Believe in miracles.
21. God loves you because of who God is, not
because of anything you did or didn't do.
22. All that truly matters in the end is that you
loved.
23. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw
everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
24. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all
you need.
25. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.”

FEBRUARY ADULT FAITH FORMATION
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.
