ear Lord, as I make my Lenten journey
with You, send me Your Spirit, help me to
give of myself, help me to turn away from sin,
and help me to fast and pray, so that I may
know You and serve You better. Let me be renewed through my journey to share Your grace
with the world. Amen.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TODAY
A
A Word from Fr. Rocks. . .
s we begin the holy and penitential season of Lent, let us reflect upon those exercises
most associated with the season: prayer, fasting and alms giving. During Lent we allow
these exercises to deepen our commitment to living as a new creation.
We begin with prayer. Prayer, quite simply, is the raising of the heart and mind to God.
Prayer should be composed of adoration, thanksgiving and petition. By adoration is meant
singing the praises of God for His goodness and His Holiness. When we adore the Lord we
are making an act of love. While praying we reflect upon the blessings the Father has bestowed on us through His Son, Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit. Recalling these blessings leads
us to say thanks and rejoice in God's love for us. When we pray to God we ask that He continue to bless us, while entrusting all of our loved ones, all of our cares, our fears and needs to
Him.
Jesus counsels us to "watch and pray always" (Luke 21:36). St. Augustine comments that to
pray always is to constantly call to mind the Kingdom of Heaven, along with our desire to be
a member of that kingdom. A few years ago an evening news program aired a piece on the
Monks of Mount Athos in Greece. When the monks are not in Chapel singing the praises of
God they busy themselves with various works around the mount. While engaged in these
activities they are constantly at prayer, usually saying some form of the Jesus prayer. Occupying their minds and hearts with Jesus, they are able to live here and now as citizens of the
Kingdom of Heaven.
In order to be able to pray always we need to take time daily to pray. Archbishop Sheen recommended that the laity spend 15 minutes a day in prayer (he recommended that priests
pray for 60 minutes). During that time one could use the Scriptures, spiritual reading or pray
the Rosary. The purpose of using these tools is to bring about meditation, that is, thinking on
the life of Christ, comparing my life to His, making resolution to bring about a change, that is
conversion, in my life.
As we observe Lent, let us keep Jesus' command to watch and pray always in mind. Perhaps
we could begin by praying devoutly and attentively the prayer Jesus taught us, the Our Father. Praying this prayer well will lead us to living out our Baptismal Promises, made when
we were baptized, becoming a new creation in Christ Jesus.
PLEASE REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS THE SICK OF OUR PARISH
AND THOSE WHO ARE IN NURSING HOMES AND IN HOSPITALS.

FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT
The Forty Days between
Ash Wednesday and Holy Thursday
T
he season of Lent began on Ash Wednesday. On that day the Church invited us to
receive a cross of ashes on our foreheads as a
sign of our resolve to root sin out of our lives
through the disciplines of prayer, fasting, and
almsgiving. As Jesus fasted 40 days in the desert, the Church traditionally fasts during Lent.
A form of bodily prayer, fasting and abstinence
in union with other Christians reminds us of
our utter dependence on and love for God. A
gesture of repentance, fasting is symbolic of a
change of heart as we turn away from sin to live
in fidelity to the Gospel.
Weekdays of Lent:
There is no obligation to fast. However, voluntary acts of self-denial are recommended.
Ash Wednesday & Good Friday:
These are days of Fast & Abstinence from meat.
There is a limit of one full meal on these days
for all between the ages of 18 and 59 inclusive.
Days of Abstinence: (All Fridays in Lent)
All who have reached their 14th year are bound
to abstain totally from meat.
Easter Duty Obligation:
After they have received their First Holy Communion, Catholics are bound by the obligation
of receiving Holy Communion at least once a
year. This precept should be fulfilled during
the Easter Season. Catholics are also bound to
confess serious (mortal) sins at least once a
year, but this is not limited to the Lenten/
Easter Season.
“Could you not watch one hour with me?”

DOMINGO 22 DE FEBRERO, 2015
QUÉ DIOS ESTÉ SIEMPRE CONTIGO!
PREPÁRATE PARA VIVIR
UNA SANTA CUARESMA!
L
a Cuaresma comenzó este año con el Miércoles de Ceniza el 18 de febrero. Este tiempo liturgico nos prepara para celebrar el Misterio Pascual de la pasión, muerte y resurrección de Cristo.
Es tiempo de reflexión y renovación espiritual, tiempo de examinar nuestra relación con Dios y con
los demás. La Iglesia también llama a los Católicos a adoptar un espíritu de penitencia, especialmente la práctica de los “Actos Religiosos”: el ayuno, la oración y la limosna. Para fomentar el espíritu
de penitencia y reparación por el pecado, y cultivar la abnegación, y para guiarnos a seguir las huellas de Jesús, la Iglesia tiene por ley que se observe el ayuno y la abstinencia.
Reglamentos Cuaresmales
Abstinencia: Todas las personas que hayan cumplido los 14 años tienen la obligación de abstenerse
de comer carne el miércoles de Ceniza y todos los viernes de cuaresma.
Ayuno: Todas las personas, de 18 años cumplidos hasta los 59, tienen la obligación de ayunar el
Miércoles de Ceniza y el Viernes Santo. Generalmente, el ayuno consiste de una sola comida completa al día. Se pueden ingerir otras dos comidas pequeñas suficientes para mantener las fuerzas,
pero juntas no deben ser equivalentes a una comida completa. No está permitido comer entre las
comidas, pero si está permitido ingerir líquidos.
*Se recomienda fuertemente que cada uno por su propia cuenta ayune los días de semana durante la
Cuaresma.
*Los Católicos están obligados a ayunar y a abstenerse de comer carne el Miércoles de Ceniza, y el
Viernes Santo.
*Los viernes de Cuaresma son días de abstinencia obligatoria.
CINCO MINUTOS CON LA PALABRA
urante el tiempo de Cuaresma estamos llamados a preparar nuestras mentes y corazones para la celebración de Semana Santa y Pascuas. Una de las herramientas más
efectivas para lograr éste objectivo es reservar diariamente unos minutos para meditar,
orar y profundizar nuestro caminar con Cristo. Con éste propósito, invitamos a todos los
feligreses a utilizar el libro de meditaciones diarias “Cinco Minutos con la Palabra.” Los
mismos se encuentran ubicados a los costados de las puertas de entrada de la iglesia. Las meditaciones son un obsequio de nuestra parroquia para todos los feligreses, pero las copias son limitadas. Les agradecemos tomar un libro por familia.
D
R
ecuerden: el color litúrgico durante el tiempo de Cuaresma es el morado que significa luto y
penitencia. Es un timpo de reflexión, de penitencia, de conversión espiritual; tiempo de preparación al misterio pascual.
8-636
H
emos comenzado el tiempo penitencial y santo de Cuaresma, reflexionemos juntos a cerca de
las prácticas cuaresmales: oración, ayuno y limosna. Durante la Cuaresma permitimos que estas prácticas nos ayuden a profundizar nuestro compromiso a vivir como una creación nueva de
Dios.
Comenzamos con la oración. La oración, es simplemente elevar nuestra mente y nuestro corazón a
Dios. La oración tendría que estar compuesta de adoración, acción de gracias y petición. Por adoración entendemos dar alabanzas a Dios por su bondad y su santidad. Estamos haciendo un acto de
amor cuando adoramos a nuestro Señor. Mientras oramos, reflexionamos a cerca de las bendiciones
que el Padre nos ha concedido por medio de su Hijo, Jesucristo, en el Espíritu Santo. El recordar estas bendiciones nos lleva a darle gracias y a regocijarnos en el amor que Dios nos tiene. Cuando le
rezamos a Dios le pedimos que continúe bendiciéndonos, le confiamos nuestros seres queridos,
nuestras aflicciones, miedos y necesidades.
Jesús nos dice “estén vigilantes y oren constantemente” (Lucas 21:36). San Agustín comenta que para estar en constante oración debemos pensar continuamente en el Reino de los Cielos y desear ser
miembros de ese reino. Hace algunos años atrás un programa televisivo puso en el aire una nota
referida a los Monjes del Monte Athos en Grecia. La nota permitió ver que cuando los monjes no
están en la capilla alabando a Dios se mantienen ocupados trabajando en el monte y mientras lo
hacen están constantemente en oración, generalmente, recitando alguna forma de la “oración de
Jesús” (por ejemplo Jesús ten piedad de mis pecados). El ocupar sus corazones y sus mentes con
Jesús les permite vivir en el presente como miembros del Reino de los cielos.
Para lograr estar en oración constantemente debemos dedicar diariamente un tiempo para orar. El
Arzobispo Sheen recomienda que los laicos dispongan de 15 minutos diarios para orar (y recomienda que los sacerdotes lo hagan por 60 minutos). Durante ese tiempo uno puede leer la Santas Escrituras, libros espirituales o rezar el santo Rosario. El propósito de usar estos materiales es meditar,
pensar en la vida de Cristo, comparar nuestra vida con la de Él, y comprometernos a cambiar, es decir, convertirnos.
Durante este tiempo de Cuaresma, tratemos de tener presente el comando de Jesús de estar vigilantes y en oración constantemente. Quizá podamos comenzar por rezar con atención y devoción el Padre Nuestro, la oración que Dios nos enseñó. Esto nos llevará a vivir las promesas
bautismales que hicimos al ser bautizados, convirtiéndonos en una creación nueva
E
l Vía Crucis consiste en recordar con amor y agradecimiento lo mucho que
Jesús sufrió por salvarnos del pecado. Se trata de un camino de oración que
busca adentrarnos en la meditación de la Pasión de nuestro Señor Jesucristo en su
camino al Calvario. Durante la Cuaresma, nuestra comunidad de fe se reunirá para
rezar las Estaciones del Vía Crucis todos los viernes a las 6:30 de la tarde (antes de la
Misa). Acompáñenos y renovémos juntos el recuerdo de los sufrimientos de Cristo.
9-636
ARMANDO CON EL PADRE ARMANDO
Dios se sostiene en la palabra dada
A
l comienzo de esta cuaresma Dios quiere renovar con nosotros su alianza. Así mismo hizo con
la familia de Noé, después del diluvio, diciendo: "Yo hago un pacto con vosotros." La alianza con
Noé era como crear nuevamente la humanidad, después de la catástrofe purificadora del diluvio.
Después va a sellar otra vez su Alianza con Moisés y el pueblo de Israel, tras los años de la esclavitud de Egipto.
A quienes vivieron los tiempos de Noé Dios les indicó un signo muy sencillo y fácil de aplicar: cuando vieran el arcoíris, que sale después de la tormenta, ellos debían recordar la indestructible bondad
de Dios.
A nosotros, los cristianos, es el mismo Cristo Jesús, con su Muerte y Resurrección (con su Pascua)
quien nos recuerda este amor de Dios, como si fuera un nuevo arcoíris. Ha sido El, Jesús el Salvador,
el que "murió por los pecados una vez para siempre, el inocente por los culpables, para conducirnos
a Dios" (lo hemos escuchado así en la lectura de san Pedro). La Alianza ahora es "la Nueva Alianza
en la sangre de Cristo". Ha habido algo más que un diluvio o un período de esclavitud: Cristo se ha
entregado hasta la muerte, por solidaridad, y ha restablecido de una vez por todas la alianza entre
Dios y la humanidad. Es lo que celebramos en los más de noventa días que duran la cuaresma y la
pascua.
El día de nuestro Bautismo entramos cada uno de nosotros como miembros de esta Alianza. San Pedro nos ha dicho que el diluvio fue como símbolo del bautismo: por medio del signo del agua Dios
nos salvó y nos introdujo en la nueva humanidad. Cuando celebramos la Eucaristía, haciendo el memorial de la Muerte de Cristo, participamos de su Cuerpo y su Sangre, la "Sangre de la Nueva Alianza". Cristo en su existencia gloriosa nos hace partícipes de la fuerza salvadora de su Muerte pascual.
La cuaresma nos invita a renovar nuestro compromiso con Dios. Alianza es amistad, fidelidad y
compromiso. Por las dos partes. De la fidelidad de Dios no podemos dudar. El es siempre fiel. Nos
lo ha demostrado de una vez por todas en la Pascua de su Hijo. Pero nosotros estamos siempre tentados de infidelidad. Todos tenemos experiencia de ello.
Tenemos experiencia de que vivir según el plan de vida que Dios nos ha mostrado en Cristo Jesús es
difícil, y supone luchar contra las tentaciones de este mundo. Como también lo experimentó Jesús,
en sus tentaciones del desierto, que recordamos cada año en este primer domingo de Cuaresma, para mostrarnos el ejemplo de su fidelidad a Dios.
Tenemos experiencia del pecado, y por eso, además de los sacramentos del Bautismo y la Eucaristía,
necesitamos también el de la Reconciliación o Penitencia, que en este tiempo tendrá especial significado. Sólo podemos celebrar la Pascua con Cristo si nos dejamos purificar por El y reconciliar con
Dios. Las primeras palabras de Jesús, por tierras de Galilea, fueron: "está cerca el Reino de Dios, convertíos y creed en la Buena Noticia".
Miremos el ejemplo de Cristo que empieza su camino, cargado de dificultades y también de tentaciones, hasta llegar hasta la obediencia total de la Cruz y luego la alegría de la Pascua.
