February 1st 2015, The Fourth Sunday In Ordinary Time
Dear Friends:
Greetings and welcome! Many thanks
for your continued support to our Church.
It is listed on our collection schedule from
the Archdiocese that next week our second
collection
is
the Annual
Catholic
Charities Appeal offering. If you have
received your mailing from the Catholic
Charities office, please place it in the
collection next weekend. The Appeal will
continue through the month of February, so
you may place your offering in the
collection at any time or send it directly to
the Catholic Charities Office. Thank you for
your support to this important endeavor.
As we continue with Ordinary Time, this
weekend the Fourth Sunday, our Gospel
reading tells us how the people of God
recognized from the beginning of His public
ministry that He was a prophet mighty in
word and deed. We will continue to see in
the beginning of St. Mark's Gospel that the
people did recognize Jesus for the work He
was doing. Jesus astonished His listeners
because He taught with authority. Perhaps
what was new and refreshing about His
teaching was that He taught about a God
Who offers salvation to all. We need to be
open to what Jesus offers us today and
perhaps even to be amazed ourselves. "If
Today you hear His voice, harden not
your hearts!"
Congratulations to Sr. Margaret Rose,
our teachers, staff and students on the
celebration of Catholic Schools Week. We
will conclude Catholic Schools week at our
10:30 Mass this weekend. I thank the
students and teachers who will participate
in the Mass. I thank you, our parishioners,
for your continued support to Queen of
Angels School.
Have a good week and may God bless
you!
Father Janton...

LITURGY CORNER
MUSIC TODAY
Entrance: #375 "Gather us Together"
Gift Preparation: #475 "Open my Eyes"
Communion: #367 "Precious Lord"
Recessional: #479 "Lead me Lord"
TODAYS READINGS:
First Reading: Deuteronomy 18:15-20
Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 7:32-35
Gospel: Mark 1:21-28
Today Jesus is presented as a prophet like Moses, a
prophet whom Moses promised that God would raise
up and about whom God said, "I will put my words into
his mouth." This prophet would deliver God's message,
speaking definitively in God's name. Mark presents
Jesus as the one who fulfills that promise by his
teaching with an authority that makes people marvel.
Then, in this first act of casting out an evil spirit, we see
the kingdom of God breaking into our world. By naming
Jesus as the "Holy One of God," the evil spirit tries to
take control over Jesus, but for naught. Jesus silences
the spirit and calls him out of the man. He restores the
man to himself. God's power to confront and overcome
evil is at hand. The power of evil has been overcome by
the death and resurrection of Jesus. What "unclean
spirits" continue to take up residence in our world
today? Do we trust the power of Jesus to vanquish
them? Do we welcome the power of God into our lives
or have we become comfortable when other powers
wish to possess us?
