And we will alter our face to our advantage if we can. Sometimes the change is not just in looks but in our whole image - including our name. Larushka Shikne did not like the image he thought his name projected, so he changed his name to Laurence Harvey. Issur Danielovitch Densky did the same thing and became Kirk Douglas. In the same way, Frances Gum transfigured herself and her image into Judy Garland. Archibald Leach became Cary Grant. Asron Schwalt became Red Buttons. And would you have paid money to see Marion Morrison in the movies? Maybe, but Marion didn’t take that chance, he became John Wayne. Remember that in Holy Scriptures many people got new names to go with a new life and a new image. Abram became Abraham. Sarai became Sarah. Jacob became Israel. Saul became Paul. Simon became Peter, “the Rock.” Transfigurations are not the exception. They are the rule. We are all being altered in the appearance of our face, our countenance. We are all changing. To live is to be continually transfigured. So who are we becoming? ~~~~ David A. Redding tells in one of his books about Orville Kelly - a man who was informed years ago that he was suffering from terminal cancer. He and his wife went home to cry and to die. Should they keep it a secret? They wondered and they prayed. The answer, they decided, was that they should not only pray but also play. They decided to put on a big party. They invited all their friends. During the festivities, Orville held up his hand to make an announcement: “You may have wondered why I called you all together,” he said. “This is a cancer party. I have been told that I have terminal... Continued on page 5 Second Sunday in Lent March 12, 2017 Del Escritorio y Corazón del Pastor: ~~~~ Las transfiguraciones son un negocio grande porque estamos concientes de la cara que presentamos al mundo y alteramos nuestras caras hacia nuestra ventaja si podemos. A veces el cambio no es solamente de como lucimos sino en nuestra imagen total incluyendo nuestro nombre. A Larushka Shikne no le gustaba la imagen que ella pensaba que su nombre proyectaba, entonces se cambió el nombre a Laurence Harvey. Issur Danielovitch Densky hizo lo mismo y se cambió a Kirk Douglas. Del mismo modo, Frances Gum transfiguró su imagen en Judy Garland. Archibald Leach se cambió a Cary Grant. Aaron Schwart, se volvió Red Buttons. Y usted tendría que pagar dinero para ver a Marion Morrison en el cine?. Tal vez, pero Marion no tomó ese chance, se hizo John Wayne. Recuerden que en las Escrituras Sagradas mucha gente alteró su nombre para seguir con una nueva vida y una nueva imagen. Abram se volvió Abraham. Sarai, se volvió Sarah. Jacob se volvió Israel. Saul se volvió Paul. Simón se volvió Peter "la roca" . Las transfiguraciones no son la excepción, son la regla. Todos somos alterados en la apariencia de nuestros rostros, nuestros aspetos, todos estamos cambiando. Vivir es estar continuamente transfigurados. Entonces, en quién nos convertimos ? . ~~~~ David A. Redding nos dice en uno de sus libros acerca de Orville Kelly, un hombre quien fue informado hace algunos años que estaba sufriendo de un cancer terminal. El y su esposa fueron a su casa a llorar y a morir. Debian ...

We decided to start a new organization. It is called M.T.C. - ‘Make Today Count.’ You are all charter members.” Since that time that organization has spread across the country. Orville’s recognition of his mortality was a new beginning. Such an attitude is not as rare as you might think. Former Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin noted years ago that some people meet tragedy and fall apart at the seams. Others meet the same adversities and see their troubles as a challenge to their faith and courage. They make their troubles work for them, and the harder they fall, the higher they bounce. Bingo at St. Matthew Every Wednesday in Parish Hall Doors open at 10:00am Games start at 11:00am Fr. Quinn wishes to extend his sincere thanks to everyone who helped him celebrate the 50th Anniversary of his Ordination at Mass on Sunday, February 26th. Thank you to Fr. Kubala for his invitation to have the Mass here at St. Matthew and to Archbishop Wenski for attending and giving the Homily. Thank you to Eva Hart, Joan Ochoa and their wonderful volunteers for the beautiful luncheon provided after the 10:00 Mass. It was a lot of work and was appreciated by Fr. Quinn very much. God bless all of you. 2017 Archbishop’s Charities & Development Drive Our Parish Goal for the 2017 ABCD is $80,731.00. To date, $58,475.06 in pledges have been received. If you have not yet pledged, you may do so by filling out the pledge envelopes in the pews. May God bless your generosity. Viene de la Pagina 2 … mantenerlo como un secreto? Se epreguntaron y oraron. La respuesta, ellos decidieron, que no solo debían orar sino gozar. Decidieron hacer una gran fiesta. Invitaron a todos sus amigos. durante la fiesta, Orville levantó la mano para hacer un anuncio : "Ustedes se preguntaran por qué los llamé a todos juntos? les dijo. "Esta es una fiesta del cáncer. Me han dicho que tengo cáncer terminal. Entonves mi esposa y yo nos dimos cuenta que todos somos terminales. Decidimos empezar una nueva organización. Se llama M.T.C. ( make today count), Haga que hoy dia cuente. Todos ustedes son miembros titulares". Desde ese tiempo esa organización se ha difundido en todo el país. El reconocimiento de la inmortalidad de Orville fue un nuevo comienzo. Tal actitud no es tan rara como Ud. cree. Un Sociólogo de Harvard Pitirim Sorokin notó hace unos años que algunas personas encuentran una tragedia y se desmoronan. Otros encuentran las mismas adversidades y ven sus problemas como un reto a su fé y coraje. Hacen que sus problemas trabajen para ellos, y por más duro que caigan, más alto se levantan.
