The RCIA is the process of welcoming new members to the

TEACHING WITH AUTHORITY
The Jewish teachers at the time of Jesus would
pride themselves on repeating exactly what their teachers
had shared with them. It is not surprising, then, to read in
today’s Gospel (Mark 1: 21 – 28) that Jesus taught as one
having authority. He did not imitate the example of the
scribes who simply repeated the past teachings. Jesus said
that if you do not believe his words, then pay attention to
his deeds, his many miracles.
In Matthew’s Gospel, for example, Christ clearly
teaches with authority as he did here in the synagogue:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘an eye for an eye and a
tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, offer no resistance to
one who is evil. When someone strikes you on the right
cheek, turn the other one to him as well.” (5: 38 – 39)
The Jewish people believed that the Law had come
from God, not to be changed by human beings. Jesus is, of
course, the Son of God, but also a prophet, called by God,
as are all true prophets, to express the divine message to
their contemporaries. God through Moses promised a special prophet in the Messianic period: “A prophet like me
will the Lord, your God, raise up for you from among your
own kinsmen.” (Deuteronomy 18: 15) The early Church
saw this prophecy fulfilled in the ministry of Christ. In the
Acts of the Apostles Peter declares Jesus to be the Messiah
promised in the Old Testament, quoting Deuteronomy 18:
15 to make his point. (Acts 3: 20 – 23)
The people in the synagogue were also amazed by
Jesus’ power over the unclean spirit. The very words of the
demon indicate an important reality about Jesus and his
mission: “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are – the
Holy One of God.” (Mark 1: 24) This exorcism prepares for
the continuing struggles between the Son of God (the Holy
One of God) and Satan. The struggle will end on Good Friday. On the cross, Jesus Christ will be victorious over Satan, winning salvation for all!

of Christ which is beyond all understanding give their
families comfort and peace.

FOURTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
CARDINAL’S APPEAL 2015
STEWARDSHIP
“SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD”
(MATTHEW 6:33)
Many of our parishioners received a mailing from
Cardinal Wuerl this week. He has asked that you make a
pledge to the 2015 Cardinal’s Appeal.
The Cardinal’s Appeal not only funds the operations of the archdiocese, it funds services that are of great
help to the ministries here in our parish. For example,
through the Parish Partners program of Catholic Charities,
supported by the Appeal, our parish has received grants for
our Special Needs Ministry.
The theme of the Appeal is, “Seek First the Kingdom of God.” (Matthew 6:33) As we seek first the kingdom
of God, we have the capability of helping it to be present in
our lives and in the lives of those around us. How does this
happen? Through our works of charity, our works of love,
our works of love and compassion. Contributions to the
Cardinal’s Appeal offers each of us the opportunity to respond to the needs of others by enabling ministries and services that touch thousands of lives.
SHARING OUR TREASURE
Please prayerfully consider a
generous pledge to the 2015
Cardinal’s Appeal.
ST. ALOYSIUS CHURCH SPECIAL NEEDS
MINISTRY: On Saturday February 7th we will be hosting
the 5:00 p.m. Mass and Dinner/Dance immediately afterwards in the Father Andrew White School Gym from 6-8
