First Sunday of Lent


Home

 

Genesis 9:8-5; 1 Peter 3:18-22; Mark 1:12-15. In today’s reading from the Book of Genesis, God makes his covenant between Noah and all living beings. Saint Peter, in the second reading, draws a connection between the saving of Noah and his family in the great flood and the saving waters of baptism. Following his temptation in the desert, Jesus begins his public ministry by proclaiming the Kingdom of God.

 


Domenica 1A Di Quaresima

Avviarsi verso la Pasqua  è “salire” verso Gerusalemme. In cammino verso la festa della nostra liberazione riconosciamo I nostril peccati, chiedendo perdono. Nel deserto, Gesù vince le tentazioni e prende slancio per la sua missione di salvezza.


From the Pastor's Computer 

With some 66 hits under his belt, Tomislav Bokšić, or Toxic, has a flawless record as hitman for the Croatian mafia in New York. That is, until he kills the wrong guy and is forced to flee the States, leaving behind the life he knows and loves. Suddenly, he finds himself on a plane hurtling toward Reykjavík, Iceland, disguised as an American televangelist named Father Friend.  After one misadventure after another, he falls in love and is brought to a rather dubious redemption that is roughly like St. Paul’s conversion on the way to Damascus.  His tortuous and violent conversion process where he is tested and manipulated by a karate expert de-programmer called “Torture” is a little something like the journey we take during Lent to test our spirits, acknowledge our sinfulness, renew our baptismal commitments and focus on Jesus who died on the Cross and rose from the dead in Resurrection.

The name of this odd little novel is The Hitman’s Guide to Housecleaning.  Tomislav or “Toxic” has a violent “housecleaning” for his life of murder and sin.  His sin is literally beat out of him in a year-long regimen of scripture, isolation, and physical torture.

In the gospel of Mark, Jesus is violently thrust out into the wilderness to be tested and tempted by Satan.  Jesus is tested and tempted during the whole time in the wilderness.  Testing implies that Jesus was trained for ministry under extreme conditions.  Only after 40 days, like Moses on the mountain for 40 days, like Elijah on the desert journey for 40 days, Jesus begins his ministry with simple yet profound content: he proclaimed the Kingdom of God is near (at hand) present, and asked for response of repentance and belief in the gospel.

Lent becomes a time for all of us to take stock of our response to the gospel about/from God.  We all have some of the “hitman” in us that is in need of “housecleaning.”  We might not be violently shoved into the wilderness like the Spirit did to Jesus or the karate man called “Torture” did to “Toxic,” but we are called to enter into the wilderness of the Lenten time to have a good look at ourselves, do a little housecleaning, review the rules of the covenant and renew our belief in the gospel of God.

-Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Lenten Disciplines: Fast:Everyone over 18, but under 60, is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On these two days, the law of fast allows only one full meal a day, but does not prohibit taking some food during the day, so long as this does not constitute a full meal. Drinking liquids during the day is permitted. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. If in doubt concerning Fast or Abstinence, a priest should be consulted. In the spirit of penance, the faithful should not lightly excuse themselves from this obligation. Abstinence: Everyone 14 years and older is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all the Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday. Mass attendance: During Lent, the Church encourages attendance at daily Mass and reception of the Eucharist. Almsgiving: During Lent, the Church encourages generosity to local, national, and worldwide programs of sharing.

Choose Life! “Catholics hold that marriage is a vocation, a ‘call.’ It is a way of life that offers continual opportunities to be in loving service to the other.” — Life Matters: Marriage, the Sanctuary of Life, 2012 USCCB Respect Life Program

From the Catechism: Why does the faith require definitions and formulas? “Faith is not about empty words but about reality. In the Church, condensed formulas of faith developed over the course of time; with their help we can contemplate, express, learn, hand on, celebrate, and live out this reality.

Without fixed forms, the content of the faith would dissipate. That is why the Church attaches great importance to definite sentences, the precise wording of which was usually achieved painstakingly, so as to protect the message of Christ from misunderstandings and falsifications. Furthermore, creeds are important when the Church’s faith has to be translated into different cultures while being preserved in its essentials, because a common faith is the foundation for the Church’s unity.” (YOUCAT question 25). For more Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 170-184.

Choose Life! “Marriage needs to be strengthened, not redefined. Cohabitation, divorce, and contraception all erode marriage’s meaning as a public, total, lifelong, and fruitful communion of persons between husband and wife. The latest challenge to marriage, the proposal that sexual difference doesn’t matter, removes the very basis of marriage’s meaning as a one-flesh communion, open to children, making the definition of marriage in law (and thereby culture) open to limitless variation and ultimately meaningless.” –United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “Marriage: Unique for a Reason. One Man, One Woman, For Life.”


More Choose Life: “Federal law had been generous in protecting the rights of individuals and institutions to act according to their religious beliefs and moral convictions. But political forces are now injecting themselves into the lives of Catholics and Church organizations, sub-stituting their own secular ideology for the Church’s beliefs.

Some say the Church should leave politics alone and concentrate on teaching the faith and serving the needy. But what if the State says the Church may not follow her teachings, even in her own institutions? What if the State limits the Church’s ability to serve the needy? What if it says a Catholic nurse has no right to her livelihood because she will not help perform abortions? What if the Church cannot act on her teaching that marriage is a union of one man and one woman?” -United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Bulletin Insert on Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.

USA Today had a very good interview with His Excellency earlier this year.

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola have helped many to fulfill their desire to grow in knowledge and love of Jesus and so to follow him in greater freedom. Ignatius planned that the complete Exercises (sometimes offered as a 30-day silent retreat) also be offered as a retreat in everyday life, extended over six months or more. In following this form, the retreatant meets with an individual director weekly and prays an hour and a half daily. Doing the Exercises entails a serious commitment of both time and energy and is appropriate for those already cultivating a generous life of prayer and in regular spiritual direction. If you have an interest in doing the complete Spiritual Exercises in everyday life, our staff would be happy to help you to discern the Spirit’s call and will recommend a director when that is timely. Please contact Fr. Tom Carroll (tcarroll@jrclosaltos.org) at The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos for more information.


Marriage Matters to Kids! Proposition 8 forced us to confront important questions, that retain their importance even though the election is over.

What is the meaning of Marriage?
Do Children have a fundamental right to a Mother and a Father?
Do Mothers matter? Do Fathers matter?
Does natural marriage benefit society?
If so, what are the dangers of redefining marriage?
What about equality, and the dignity of the homosexual person?

Watch the video below, and listen to Catholic bishops and priests, (including a charming episode with SSPP’s own Fr. Armand Oliveri!) marriage counselors, lawyers, and people just like you, describe what marriage means and why we are called to protect it. Visit www.MarriageMattersToKids.org

Struggling with Same-Sex Attraction? You are NOT alone and the Church has not abandoned you! Visit the COURAGE website. "COURAGE" is an apostolate of the Church that ministers to those struggling against this particular temptation. They have been endorsed by the Pontifical Council for the Family and our beloved John Paul II said of this ministry, "COURAGE is doing the work of God!"

In the Bay Area, call:

Fr. Mark Taheny (415) 461-0704

Struggling with Pornography Addiction? You also are not alone! Pornographic websites are by far the largest segment of the web.

A new Catholic apostolate, the Serenellians (www.pornnomore.com), is trying to help those caught in the grips of pornography addiction. The Serenellians get their name from Alessandro Serenelli, who killed St. Maria Goretti in a fit of lust and later repented.

“If a man so seemingly wicked, decadent and corrupt as Alessandro Serenelli can receive the fullness of conversion and salvation from Almighty God, then so can each and every like soul caught up in the snares of this insidious evil.”

You can visit their website by clicking on the logo to the left, and there is a good story about them on California Catholic Daily.
