V SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
V DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO
St. Mark is interested in the link between the miraculous activity
of the Messiah and the awakening of faith. Faith leads people to
ask Jesus for healing. Healing leads them to the total
commitment of faith. The cure of Peter’s mother-in-law suggests
more than Christ’s extraordinary power over a sick body. Mark
demonstrates his interest in the meaning of the event: the healing
of bodies is aimed at wholeness of spirits. Made whole by the
power of Jesus, we too must devote our full energy to serving
the Lord.
San Marcos está interesado en el lazo entre la actividad milagrosa
del Mesías y el despertar de la fe. La fe conduce a las personas a
pedir a Jesús sanación. La sanación los dirige al compromiso total
de fe. La sanación de la suegra de Pedro sugiere más que el poder
extraordinario de Cristo sobre un cuerpo enfermo. Marcos
demuestra su interés en el significado del evento: la sanación de
los cuerpos intenta la integridad de espíritus. Hechos por el
poder de Jesús, nosotros también debemos dedicar nuestra
energía para servir al Señor.

PASTORAL MESSAGE
La Comunidad Católica de Sta. Ana

MENSAJE PASTORAL
God is goodness. It is best to choose to be at peace than to be right. Clinging to anger or believing
that others are always wrong does not allow us to have peace of mind or emotional peace. The first
step is willingness to forgive.
God is forgiveness. When we recognize that thoughts of revenge makes us suffer, it is easier to want
to forgive and forget past resentment.
God is peace. We know that even if we forgive, the other person will not necessarily change. It’s
only about changing our thoughts and attitudes. Forgiveness does not mean you have to match the
other’s behavior. Forgiveness raises self-esteem and reduces anxiety and depression.
God is joy. Thinking in the present is good for healing emotional wounds. If you are angry about
something that happened in the past, ask yourself what good it does to be angry today. If it are not
improving your life, don’t stay angry.
God is mercy. Suffering a crime, a sentimental problem or any other situation where you feel powerless, resentment is
common. Often in these instances, you need to forgive yourself, because people tend to blame themselves for what they
could have done and didn’t.
God is wisdom. Perhaps the act of forgiving is not actually just an altruistic fact oriented toward others, but it benefits
physically, spiritually and emotionally the one that forgives because it eliminates the negative feelings that can hurt. It has
a boomerang effect that strengthens the welfare of both people.
God is compassion. Forgiveness takes practice. A decision must be made to have the desire, make a commitment, repeat
it many times to master it and incorporate it as natural. This healing is experienced in the sacrament of reconciliation.
If we live in forgiveness as God forgives us; we will live...!
Dios es bondad. Es mejor elegir estar en paz que tener razón. Aferrarnos al enojo o creer que los demás siempre están
equivocados no nos permite tener paz mental ni emocional. El primer paso es la disposición a perdonar.
Dios es perdón. Cuando reconocemos que guardar pensamientos de venganza es algo que nos hace sufrir, nos resulta más
fácil tener deseos de perdonar y de olvidar el rencor pasado.
Dios es paz. Sepamos que aunque perdonemos, la otra persona no necesariamente cambiará. Sólo se trata de modificar
nuestros pensamientos y actitudes. Perdonar no significa que se tenga que coincidir con la conducta del otro. El perdón
eleva la autoestima y disminuye la ansiedad y la depresión.
Dios es alegría. Pensar en el presente es bueno para curar las heridas emocionales. Si usted está enojado por algo que
ocurrió en el pasado, pregúntese para qué le sirve el enojo hoy en día. Si no está mejorando su vida, no se detenga en la
cólera.
Dios es misericordia. Al sufrir un delito, un problema sentimental o alguna otra situación en la que uno se siente
impotente, es común que se instale el resentimiento. En estas instancias muchas veces se necesita perdonarse a sí mismo,
porque uno tiende a culparse por lo que se podía haber hecho y no se hizo.
Dios es sabiduría. Tal vez, el acto de perdonar no se trate en realidad sólo de un hecho altruista orientado hacia los
demás, sino que beneficia física, espiritual y emocionalmente al que perdona, porque elimina los sentimientos negativos
que pueden perjudicar. Tiene un efecto boomerang que fortalece el bienestar de ambas personas.
Dios es compasión. Perdonar requiere práctica. Hay que tomar la decisión, tener el deseo, asumir el compromiso,
repetirlo muchas veces para dominarlo e incorporarlo como natural. Experimenta esta sanación en el
sacramento de la reconciliación.
¡Si vivimos en el perdón como Dios nos perdona; viviremos...!

IN THE PARISH
HAVE YOU NOTICED OUR NEW
CANDLESTICKS FLANKING THE
ALTAR?
Perhaps
not; they
are very
similar to
the ones we
replaced, in
fact they
are reconstructed from pieces of the
former candlesticks which, in turn, had
been made from candlesticks original to
the church in 1940. The new candlesticks
are taller and slightly wider around with a
base that helps them stand up straight all
the time.
The candlesticks were donated to St.
Anne Catholic Church in memory of
Betsy Sauer, who led our Buildings and
Grounds Committee for some 15 years
and served as Project Manager for all our
major construction – think church
renovation, Parish Center, and lastly the
new church offices and the school
administration building!
Betsy was raised at St. Anne Church,
went to school here and made all her
sacraments here. She loved her parish and
was instrumental in making sure that the
buildings and grounds were maintained,
and kept up to her high standards.
St. Anne Parish is grateful to designer Bill
Peck and all the members of Betsy’s
Birthday Club – Catholics and nonCatholics- who honored Betsy with the
newly-designed candlesticks.

SUNRISE MEN’S BIBLE STUDY
will begin the study of “Mary: a Bible
Walk with the Blessed Mother” on
Monday February 9, 6:30 - 8:00 AM in
the St. Christopher Room, Parish Center.
Come be drawn closer to Christ as Mary
leads you to a more profound and
personal relationship with her Son. The
study will be held for eight weeks, a fee
of $30.00. This study is open to all men

PARISH BLOOD DRIVE
Parishioners are encouraged to Commit for
Life by donating blood next Sunday,
February 15, from 8 AM to 3 PM in the St.
Christopher Room. To sign up as a
donor, stop by the table on the plaza after
Mass today.
Check This Out… The primary and indispensable
role of women in transmitting the faith to new
generations was the focus of Pope Francis’ remarks
during a weekday Mass last week. “Faith is a gift. It is not
possible to study Faith. We study things of faith to
understand it better; but with study alone, one never comes to Faith and
is a gift that passes from generation to generation.” He specifically
mentioned mothers and grandmothers.
COLECTA PARROQUIAL DE
SANGRE

sangre el próximo domingo 15 de
febrero, de 8 AM a 3 PM en el Salón St.
Christopher. Puede inscribirse como

RESPECT LIFE NEWS
In January, Project Gabriel helped a
teenage mother, “Kelly,” (name changed
for privacy) obtain necessary baby items,
both for her newborn and for her other
young child. Please pray for Kelly and her
growing family, as well as for her Gabriel
“Angel” (i.e., her project contact and
mentor) as she plans a baby shower to
celebrate Kelly’s decision to choose
motherhood and collect gifts for both
mom and baby!
Moms of the parish: Please stay tuned for
an upcoming Gabriel Angel training at the
parish, where you can learn more about
how to help and mentor mothers like
Kelly! The time commitment is small and
is on your own schedule.

ENFOQUE
catechumenate. At this time that the final preparation
for the sacraments takes place with great intensity. This
step is called election because the acceptance made by
the Church is founded on the election by God, in
whose name the Church acts. This step is also called
the enrollment of names because as a pledge of
fidelity the catechumens inscribe their names in the
book that lists those who have been chosen for
initiation.
In
the coming weeks the parish will be celebrating a
number of rites, in which the Rite of Christian
Imitation of Adults (RCIA) will be taking part. Starting
on February 7, the Rite of Acceptance into the order
of catechumen will take place. This is when the person
who has not been baptized declares their intention to
the Church, and the Church in turn accepts them as
persons who intend to become its members. It is our
belief that God showers His grace on the catechumen
since the celebration manifests their desire publicly and
marks their reception and first consecration by the
Church. On Sunday, February 8, the Rite of
Welcoming will be celebrated for those Christians who
were baptized in another denomination. The Church in
turns welcomes these candidates as they declare their
intentions to become members.
There will be three Sundays during Lent that the rites
belonging to the period of purification and
enlightenment will take place. They are referred to as
the Scrutinies. The Scrutinies are rites for selfsearching and repentance. They are meant to uncover,
then heal all that is weak, defective, or sinful in the
hearts of the elect—to help bring out all that is
upright, strong and good. These rites are to help with
the conversion of the elect and deepen their resolve to
hold fast to Christ and to carry out their decision to
love God above all.
On Saturday, February 21, the Rite of Sending will be
celebrated. At this time we, the Church, send the
Catechumens and Candidates to the Rite of Election
with the Bishop. This Rite is seen as both election and
the enrolment of names, closing the period of the
During the season of Lent the Church is asked to place
the concerns of the Catechumens and Candidates in
your daily prayers as they continue their faith journey
to join the Church as full members.

Dear Father Jay,
Thank you for visiting our classroom and helping us prepare to receive the Sacrament of
Penance.
All the wisdom, experience, and stories you shared with us will
help us be better followers of Jesus.
We loved the “pretend” confession. You helped us understand
that the Sacrament of Penance is a gift of God’s love and
forgiveness.
We are very happy to receive the Sacrament of Penance for the
first time next Wednesday. We are also very happy that you will
be there too!
Please come visit us again before our First Communion in May.
May God Bless you always for being our good shepherd!

SPONSORS FOR RCIA—Our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) process has begun. At this time we have 16 individuals
who are seeking to join the Roman Catholic Church. Many of these who are thinking of entering the Church are in need of a sponsor.
The role of a sponsor is one who will serve as a bridge for the candidate or for the catechumen to the greater community of the
Church. Your role is to become the extension of the parish and the universal Church to them. You are not expected to know every
aspect of the Church’s teaching, but rather simply to be a guide, an example of a Catholic living your faith as best as you can. Some of
the ways that you will do this is by sharing prayer, listening, and walking with them through the formation process to become
Catholic. A sponsor is to be over the age of 16, to have been Confirmed, receives Holy Communion and who leads a life of fait h in
keeping with the Church, and whose marriage is recognized by the Catholic Church, if married. If you are interested in becoming a
sponsor, please contact Cary Ann Nunn, at 713-525-4234 or email [email protected]
SPONSORS FOR ADULT CONFIRMATION
The Adult Confirmation Sessions began on Tuesday, February 3. There are eight adults needing a sponsor for the Sacrament of
Confirmation. These people will be receiving Confirmation at the end of April. It is a about an eight-week commitment on Tuesday
evenings from 6:30 -8:30 PM. If you would like to serve in this role and help minister to one of these candidates please contact Cary
Ann Nunn 713-525-4334 or [email protected]
The following projects are in need of volunteers to assist in bringing them to the community. To help with an upcoming project and
for more information please contact Cary Ann Nunn, Director of Religious Education at 713 525 4234 or [email protected]
ACTS Retreat (Adoration, Community, Theology and Service): A team of four has met to begin the study to offer the ACTS
Retreat to the parishioners of St. Anne’s. Before this life-changing retreat can be presented, a team needs to be formed from people
who have attended an ACTS retreat. The team will meet Wednesday, February 11 at 7:00 PM, at Jason’s Deli. This gathering is for
people who have already attended the ACTS Retreat or those interested in making the Retreat before it is offered here.
