From the Desk of Fr. Joseph - Second Sunday of Lent

Dear Parishioners,

On this 2nd Sunday of Lent the Gospel of Matthew speaks of the Transfiguration of the Lord. The Promise of the Life to Come. "And when they raised their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus." In the ordinariness and hardships of life this is the case: we have to be reminded of our call and our glorious destiny that lie hidden beneath the mundaneness and problems of daily life. But just below the surface lies the sublime promise that is ours in the crucified and risen Christ.

St. Paul tells us that Christ has "abolished death, and has proclaimed life and immortality through the Good News." The Transfiguration teaches us a fundamental truth about God's revelation of himself in Jesus, and how this addresses our human situation: that "the promised Christ had first to suffer and so come to the glory of the Resurrection."

God continues to call each one of us to be transformed, especailly during this Lenten Season. May we raise our eyes to Jesus, Our Lord!

Your brother in Christ

Fr. Joseph

I invite you to join me, in availing your heart to the graces of Christ, by making the act of Spiritual Communion.
Let us pray ...
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

O Sacrament most holy,
O Sacrament divine! All praise
and all thanksgiving be
every moment Thine! (three times)

O God of compassion,
your people are anxious
in this time of pandemic.
Send your Holy Spirit among us
to dispel our fears.
We cry out to you in our confusion;
comfort us in our affliction.
Grant our leaders wisdom to guide us.
Strengthen and sustain those who are ill,
and be with those who care for them.
Help us to travel this road
in solidarity with our neighbors,
with our eyes fixed on the salvation promised us
through the death and resurrection of your Son,
who is Lord forever and ever.
Amen.

Bible Verse for Today

While still more people gathered in the crowd, Jesus said to them, “This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it, except the sign of Jonah.At the judgment, the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation and condemn it, because at the preaching of Jonah they repented, and there is something greater than Jonah here.”

Luke 11:29-32, Matthew 12:38-42
