Job lamented his “months of misery and troubled nights.” Could

see happiness again?
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: 147:1-6
Praise the Lord, who heals the brokenhearted.
SECOND READING: 1 Corinthians 9:16-19,22-23
By preaching the good news, Paul said, he willingly made himself a slave to all in order to win them over. He did everything
for the sake of the good news.
GOSPEL: Mark 1:29-39
Jesus healed ill people and exorcised possessed people. So
many sought Him that He had to seek out deserted places for
prayer and rest.
PLEASE PRAY FOR THE SICK

of Tom & Shirley Angus; currently hospitalized at Barnes Jewish) and the residents of Laclede Groves and Mary, Queen &
Mother.
STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS
STEWARDSHIP
“Brothers and sisters: I should like you to be free of anxieties.”
1 CORINTHIANS 7:32
How much anxiety do we bring upon ourselves by constantly
worrying about not having enough or attaining more things?
God won’t necessarily give you everything you want, but He
will provide everything you need. Try this—use the word
“pray” instead of the word “worry” in the future.
JANUARY 25 COLLECTION
JOY OF THE GOSPEL REFLECTIONS CHAPTER 4
Note: Numbers before text refers to paragraph # in actual text).
198. Inspired by this life of Christ, the Church has always understood a special form of primacy of the poor in exercise of
Christian charity. The poor have much to share with us in their
sense of faith but also in their difficulties they know the suffering of Christ. We need to let ourselves be evangelized by
them. We are called to find Christ in them and to lend our
voices to their causes.

beginning at 7:00 p.m. Mass is offered at 8:00 p.m., followed

to the request of Our Lady of Fatima to pray for the conversion
of sinners.
FEBRUARY 1, 2015
ADULT FAITH FORMATION
BIBLE STUDY
The Gospel of Matthew Bible Study will begin again in February. Evening sessions will start February 17th and morning
sessions on February 18th. Sign-up sheets are in the vestibule. If you signed up last year, please sign again, and be sure
you sign for the session you intend to attend. New participants
are always welcome! If you are interested in joining for the first
time and would like to purchase the study guide, please write a
check for $30 made payable to the parish and return to the
rectory as soon as possible.
CATECHESIS SUNDAY-FEBRUARY 15 (after 8:30 Mass)
Can you give one more half hour or so of your week for the
love of Jesus and salvation of souls? It is a sacrifice well worth
making to even fast another half hour before breakfast. God is
never outdone in generosity.
This is the Year of Prayer 2015 in the four-year Archdiocesan
program, Dynamic Catholic, Alive! For the next five months,
we are offering the DVD presentation, A Biblical Walk Through
the Mass on Catechesis Sundays. This five-part program explores the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience at Mass and explains their profound significance. The
words and gestures will be seen in a new light, giving new life
to the liturgical experience.
REMINDER: Remember the book Four Signs of a Dynamic
Catholic that you received at Christmas? Have you opened it
yet and how are you doing with the material? We will be hosting a parish-wide book discussion on this book beginning the
week after Easter. If you haven’t started yet, why not read a
chapter a week during Lent?
VOLUNTEERS for HOME VISITS
Curé of Ars parishioners and Kenrick Glennon seminarians are
looking for volunteers to join in making home visits to each of
the parish’s registered parishioners. Once a month, we will
gather at church and go out in pairs to meet our parishioners.
If you can assist for one or two hours a month, we would love
for you to join us. Please contact the parish office or Tom
Block if you are interested. We look forward to briefly visiting
with each of our parishioners this year!
BULLETIN REFLECTIONS—Forms of Prayer
It is important for us to include the four main forms of prayer
into our conversations with God. There is an acronym that
helps with this: ACTS. Adoration (acknowledgment that we
are creatures of the Creator), Contrition (interior repentance),
Thanksgiving (gratitude for blessings), and Supplication
(petition). The Eucharist contains and expresses all the forms
of prayer. Do you cultivate these forms of prayer in your prayer
life? Have you ever attended a life-changing retreat, such as
ACTS or Christ Renews His Parish? archstl.org/dynamic
SPIRITUAL OPPORTUNITIES

cards. This billboard keeps the plight of millions of unborn

friends and relatives in a world that has forgotten that Christ is
Christmas.
