Devotion of the Month

March –  St. Joseph 

The Church traditionally dedicates the month of March to the special veneration of St. Joseph, whose feast day is March 19th. “He was chosen by the eternal Father as the trustworthy guardian and protector of his greatest treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph’s wife,”  says St. Bernardine of Siena. “He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying ‘Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.'” Due to St. Joseph’s leadership of the Holy Family, he has been declared the protector and patron of the universal Catholic Church.

Bishop’s Services Appeal

The BSA is a primary source of funding for sustaining and expanding the nearly 40 ministries of the Diocese. Gifts to the appeal enhance diocesan efforts to provide hope, dignity and compassionate care in the lives of others. It is a reminder that as faithful Catholics, we are compelled to be part of a Church, a communion of believers, which is greater than ourselves and not limited to our local church parishes.  Pledge cards will be available in pews if you have not already received something in the mail. Last year we went over our goal and received some $1,300 back for our parish. So let’s surpass our goal again.

Lent and Life

“By our gracious gift each year, your faithful await the sacred paschal feasts with the joy of minds made pure” (Preface of Lent 1).  The purpose of Lent is succinctly expressed by this preface.  Catechumens prepare for baptism into the paschal mystery.  The faithful are reminded of their baptism and will renew their baptismal vows at the Easter liturgy. Baptism initiates us into the eternal life Christ gives us.  The baptized are sons and daughters of God and are members of the Church, the People of Life.

The choices of the baptized are therefore to be shaped by their new identity (see Rom 6:6; Eph. 4:17-24).  Christ calls the Samaritan woman to repent as she accepts the waters of new life (see John 4:15-24).  Lenten repentance is necessary so that God’s people may more deeply become who they are.  They are called to see their sins more clearly.  Hence baptism is known as “illumination.”

Anyone who makes the Lenten journey is called to be more alert to the attacks on human life and dignity around them.  The people of life are called to reject sin and all the devil’s works and empty promises (Renewal of Baptismal Promises, Easter Liturgy).  The “pro-choice” and “right to die” mentalities are two of those “empty promises” which are firmly rejected by the baptized.  A firm rejection of these positions is integral to repentance.  Lent is the perfect time for us to call our congregations to a clearer understanding of why this is true, and to lead them to a deeper affirmation of life, both natural and eternal, in the celebration of the Paschal Mystery.
