Lent Stations & Mass

(Romereports.com) Pope Francis warned against letting the pursuit of success overtake everything else in life. He said that when Christians live only for themselves, their lives can easily become failures.

POPE FRANCIS: "A person can win everything, but in the end become a failure. You might say, 'But no, they built him a monument, they painted his portrait …' Perhaps, but he failed because he didn't choose right from wrong.”

He said people must consider God and others when making decisions. The Pope recommended people slow down, reflect and remember that God is not an enemy but someone trying to help.


Second Sunday of Lent

For a Jew of Jesus' time, Moses and Elijah would symbolize the Law and the Prophets, the two major divisions of the Scriptures. Jesus' conversation with them during the Transfiguration symbolizes something that is emphasized throughout the New Testament, namely, that Jesus fulfills, brings to completion, both the Law and the prophets. He fulfills the promise implicit in the Old Testament.

Gospel: Mark 9:2-10

First Sunday of Lent

Lent begins with a passage about Noah and flood. It's representative of not only sin, but of God's good grace. It's also a fitting entree into Jesus' journey into the desert, also symbolic of sin, and how his presence there infuses a forgotten, desolate place with life and goodness. When we are racked with sin, it is Christ who can infuse us with life and goodness.

Gospel: Mark 1:12-15

The new schedule is posted for daily servers.  Please view the parish website under the heading News and then Ministry Schedules for a list of when your son is scheduled to serve daily Mass.  Thank you.

(Romereports.com) In his homily, Pope Francis urged Christians to listen to Jesus. He said the key was to read the Gospel.

"'How I can do this, father? What TV channel is Jesus on?' He speaks in the Gospel. Searching for Jesus' word in the Gospel is a habit many still don't have. We must always keep a small copy of it handy.”
