10 Things to Remember for Lent
1. Remember the formula. The Church does a good job capturing certain
truths with easy-to-remember lists and formulas: 10 Commandments, 7
sacraments, 3 persons in the Trinity. For Lent, the Church gives us almost a
slogan—Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving—as the three things we need to
work on during the season.
2. It’s a time of prayer. Lent is essentially an act of prayer spread out over
40 days. As we pray, we go on a journey, one that hopefully brings us closer
to Christ and leaves us changed by the encounter with him.
3. It’s a time to fast. With the fasts of Ash Wednesday and Good Friday,

meatless Fridays, and our personal disciplines interspersed, Lent is the only
time many Catholics these days actually fast. And maybe that’s why it gets
all the attention. “What are you giving up for Lent? Hotdogs? Beer? Jelly
beans?” It’s almost a game for some of us, but fasting is actually a form of
penance, which helps us turn away from sin and toward Christ.
4. It’s a time to work on discipline. The 40 days of Lent are also a good, set
time to work on personal discipline in general. Instead of giving something
up, it can be doing something positive. “I’m going to exercise more. I’m
going to pray more. I’m going to be nicer to my family, friends and
coworkers.”
5. It’s about dying to yourself. The more serious side of Lenten discipline is
that it’s about more than self-control – it’s about finding aspects of yourself
that are less than Christ-like and letting them die. The suffering and death of
Christ are foremost on our minds during Lent, and we join in these
mysteries by suffering, dying with Christ and being resurrected in a purified
form.
6. Don’t do too much. It’s tempting to make Lent some ambitious period of
personal reinvention, but it’s best to keep it simple and focused. There’s a
reason the Church works on these mysteries year after year. We spend our
entire lives growing closer to God. Don’t try to cram it all in one Lent. That’s
a recipe for failure.
7. Lent reminds us of our weakness. Of course, even when we set simple
goals for ourselves during Lent, we still have trouble keeping them. When
we fast, we realize we’re all just one meal away from hunger. In both cases,
Lent shows us our weakness. This can be painful, but recognizing how
helpless we are makes us seek God’s help with renewed urgency and
sincerity.

Lent con’t from Page 1
8. Be patient with yourself. When we’re confronted with our own
weakness during Lent, the temptation is to get angry and frustrated.
“What a bad person I am!” But that’s the wrong lesson. God is calling us
to be patient and to see ourselves as he does, with unconditional love.
9. Reach out in charity. As we experience weakness and suffering during
Lent, we should be renewed in our compassion for those who are
hungry, suffering or otherwise in need. The third part of the Lenten
formula is almsgiving. It’s about more than throwing a few extra dollars
in the collection plate; it’s about reaching out to others and helping them
without question as a way of sharing the experience of God’s
unconditional love.
10. Learn to love like Christ. Giving of ourselves in the midst of our
suffering and self-denial brings us closer to loving like Christ, who
suffered and poured himself out unconditionally on cross for all of us.
Lent is a journey through the desert to the foot of the cross on Good
Friday, as we seek him out, ask his help, join in his suffering, and learn
to love like him.
-Bishop David L. Ricken of Green Bay, Wisconsin, former chairman of the Committee on
Evangelization and Catechesis of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)

Come Spend An Hour with
Jesus
The Cathedral has Perpetual
Adoration which means there is
always someone praying in front of
the Blessed Sacrament in our chapel
twenty-four hours a day, seven days a
week. We are always in need of
guardians who will make a
commitment to come one hour per
week. We especially need guardians
the following hours: 12 -1 pm on
Monday; 3-4 pm on Wednesday; and
3-4 pm and 5-6 pm on Friday. We
also need weekend guardians from 12
-1 pm, 1-2 pm, and 2-3 pm on
Saturday, and 1-2 pm, 2-3 pm, 3-4
pm, and 4-5 pm on Sunday. If
interested, please email
2adorehim@gmail.com.
Stewardship of Treasure
How shall I repay the Lord for his goodness to me?” Psalm 116
Baptism and repentance are the themes of today’s readings. In Baptism we are saved and
called to be Christ’s disciples. Stewardship is how we act out this call to discipleship. At
Easter, we will strengthen our discipleship by renewing our baptismal promises including a
commitment to reject the glamour of evil in our lives. We, as Christian stewards, find
inspiration in today’s Gospel where Jesus, in the desert, repeatedly stands firm against the
devil’s temptations. May we seek the Lord’s guidance and strength in our times of weakness
to avoid temptation that leads to sin.

10 Cosas para recordar durante la Cuaresma
 Recuerde la fórmula. La Iglesia hace un buen trabajo al recopilar ciertas verdades con fórmulas muy fáciles de recordar: 10 mandamientos, 7 sacramentos, 3 personas en la Trinidad. En la Cuaresma, la Iglesia nos da algo muy similar a un lema: Oración, Ayuno y Caridad. Estas son las tres cosas en las que
tenemos que trabajar durante este tiempo.
 Es un tiempo de oración. La Cuaresma es esencialmente un acto de oración
repartido en 40 días. Al orar, iniciamos un viaje, que esperamos nos acerque a
Cristo y nos deje renovados para nuestro encuentro con El.
 Es tiempo de ayuno y abstinencia. Con el ayuno de Miércoles de Ceniza y
Viernes Santo, y la abstinencia de carne los Viernes, y nuestros propios sacrificios, la Cuaresma es el único tiempo en el que muchos católicos ayunan.
Y quizás por eso mismo es que nos llama tanto la atención el tema del ayuno
y la abstinencia. “¿A qué vas a renunciar durante la Cuaresma? ¿Hot dogs?
¿Cerveza? ¿Caramelos?” Es casi un juego para nosotros, pero el ayuno y la abstinencia son realmente formas de penitencia, que nos ayudan a alejarnos del
pecado y acercarnos más a Cristo.
 Es tiempo de trabajar en nuestra disciplina. Los 40 días de Cuaresma son
también un buen momento para trabajar en nuestra disciplina personal. En
lugar de renunciar a algo, podemos hacer algo positivo. “Voy a hacer más ejercicio. Voy a rezar más. Voy a ser amable con mi familia, mis amigos y mis
compañeros del trabajo o de la escuela.”
 Se trata de morir a uno mismo. El aspecto más serio de la Cuaresma es que
se trata de algo más allá que el auto control. Se trata de encontrar aspectos en
uno mismo que no son tan cristianos y dejarlos morir. El sufrimiento y la
muerte de Cristo debe estar presente en nuestras mentes durante la Cuaresma,
y debemos unirnos a estos misterios. Al morir y sufrir con Cristo, somos purificados y resucitamos con El.
 No trate de hacer demasiado. Algunas veces nos sentimos tentados durante
la Cuaresma a iniciar un período muy ambicioso de transformación personal.
Pero es mejor mantenerlo simple y sencillo. Hay una razón por la cual la Iglesia trabaja en estos misterios cada año. Pasamos nuestras vidas enteras tratando de acercarnos a Dios. ¡No trate de hacer todo este viaje en solamente 40
días! Lo más probable es que no sea exitoso en su intento.
 La Cuaresma nos recuerda nuestras propias debilidades. Por supuesto, aún
cuando nos pongamos metas simples durante la Cuaresma, aún tendremos
problemas en cumplirlas y en ser perseverantes. Cuando ayunamos, nos damos cuenta cuán cerca estamos del hambre. La Cuaresma nos muestra nuestras debilidades. Esto puede ser doloroso, pero al reconocer que necesitamos
ayuda, buscaremos la ayuda de Dios con urgencia renovada y sincera.
 Sea paciente consigo mismo. Cuando somos confrontados con nuestras propias debilidades durante la Cuaresma, nos sentimos tentados a molestarnos o a
sentirnos frustrados. “¡Soy una mala persona!” Pero estamos equivocados.
Dios nos llama a ser pacientes y a vernos a nosotros mismos, como El nos ve:
Con amor incondicional.
 Sea caritativo. Al experimentar debilidad y sufrimiento durante la Cuaresma,
debemos renovar nuestra compasión por quienes sufren hambre y otros padecimientos. La tercera parte de la fórmula de la Cuaresma es la caridad. La Caridad va más allá de poner algo más de dinero en la canasta de la colecta; se
trata de acercarse a otros y ayudarles sin esperar nada a cambio. De esta manera compartimos nuestra propia experiencia del amor incondicional de Dios.

“¿Cómo podré pagar al Señor todo el bien que me ha hecho?” Salmo 116
El bautizo y el arrepentimiento son los temas de las lecturas de hoy. En el Bautizo
somos salvados y llamados a ser discípulos de Cristo. La corresponsabilidad es la
manera de responder a este llamado. En la Pascua, reforzaremos nuestro
discipulado al renovar nuestras promesas bautismales que incluyen una
compromiso a rechazar el mal en nuestras vidas. Nosotros, como administradores
cristianos, estamos inspirados por el Evangelio de hoy donde Jesús, en el desierto,
se mantiene firme ante las repetidas tentaciones del demonio. Que busquemos
siempre la guía y la fuerza en el Señor en los momentos de debilidad para evitar
las tentaciones que nos llevan al pecado.

buscamos a Cristo y le pedimos su ayuda, nos unimos a su sufrimiento y
aprendemos a amar como El.

part of the community of Christ the King. If you are passing
