Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart
In your busy lives we are faced with a number of obstacles that
aggravate us, discourage us, and can even hinder our relationship with
Christ. Finding the time to address them is often overshadowed by the
hectic pace of our life. How can we slow down, focus on these
obstacles, and allow God to speak to our hearts?
Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart, the second series by Jeff Cavins
in the Walking Toward Eternity Program, is a challenging study that
can open our eyes to obstacles in our Christian walk such as greed,
envy, fear, and shame. Through prayer, reflection, guidance, and the
aid of the Holy Spirit, we begin to engage these difficulties in a positive
way as we continue toward our goal of a union with Christ.
The Study introduces seven common struggles. You will learn how to
engage your:
Appetites – Shame – Envy – Anger – Fear – Loneliness – Hopelessness
Eight week session starting February 5th, 2015
The sessions will be held at the Activity Center in Sun City
Workbook cost $17.00. Twenty places are available.

International Day of Prayer and Awareness
Against Human Trafficking
February 8: International Day of Prayer and Awareness
against Human Trafficking
The Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and the International Union of
Superiors General has designated February 8 as an annual day of prayer and
awareness against human trafficking. February 8 is the feast day of St. Josephine
Bakhita, who was kidnapped as a child and sold into slavery in Sudan and Italy.
Once Josephine was freed, she became a Canossian nun and dedicated her life
to sharing her testament of deliverance from slavery and comforting the poor
and suffering. She was declared a Saint in 2000.
On February 8, Catholics all over the world are encouraged to host or attend
prayer services to create greater awareness about this phenomenon. Through
prayer, we not only reflect on the experiences of those that have suffered
through this affront to human dignity, but also comfort, strengthen, and help
empower survivors.
Prayer to St. Josephine Bakhita
St. Josephine Bakhita, you were sold into slavery as a child and endured untold
hardship and suffering. Once liberated from your physical enslavement, you
found true redemption in your encounter with Christ and his Church.
O St. Bakhita, assist all those who are trapped in a state of slavery; Intercede
with God on their behalf so that they will be released from their chains of
captivity. Those whom man enslaves, let God set free. Provide comfort to
survivors of slavery and let them look to you as an example of hope and faith.
Help all survivors find healing from their wounds. We ask for your prayers and
intercessions for those enslaved among us. Amen.
El Evangelio de hoy nos dice que Jesús enseñó en la sinagoga "como
alguien con autoridad." ¿Puede recordar a su catequista o maestro de
educación religiosa favorito? Ore por esa persona y las cosas buenas
que le enseñó.
Catholic Social Teaching Corner
The Gospel today tells us that the crowds were spellbound by
Jesus’ teaching “…because he taught with authority…” As a
church, we share the privilege and responsibility of living God’s
truth with authority so that the whole world might hear and
believe. Under the leadership of Pope Francis and Bishop
Vásquez we call all to protect and defend every person
throughout their lives; to promote the dignity of every person
by ensuring they have what they need to live with dignity; to
grow in solidarity by recognizing our common humanity with
everyone. These authoritative teachings are challenging. How
are you called to grow in understanding and proclaiming them?
El Evangelio de hoy nos dice que las masas estaban fascinadas
con las enseñanzas de Jesús “…porque Él enseñaba con
autoridad…” Como una iglesia, compartimos el privilegio y la
responsabilidad de vivir la verdad de Dios con autoridad de
manera que el mundo entero escuche y crea. Bajo el liderazgo
del Papa Francisco y del Obispo Vásquez, llamamos a todos a
proteger y defender a cada persona a lo largo de sus vidas; a
promover la dignidad de cada persona asegurándonos de que
tengan lo que necesitan para vivir con dignidad; para crecer en
solidaridad al reconocer nuestra humanidad en común con
todos. Estas enseñanzas autoritarias son desafiantes ¿Cómo está
usted llamado a crecer en su entendimiento y su proclamación?
