A Deep, Biblical Look at
Jesus Christ
Priest, Prophet, King
Father Robert Barron
Monday – Wednesday
March 30 – April 1 at 6:30 PM
Taizé Prayer
Tuesday, March 24th, at 7:00pm in our Parish
Candlelight, prayer, scripture, psalms, and quiet
reflection as we gather in song and meditation to
find the Lord within us. Come and be with us.
The better we understand Jesus, the better we understand
ourselves. But who was Jesus, this itinerant preacher whom
many called the Messiah?
In Priest, Prophet, King, you’ll discover Jesus as the Anointed
One–the ultimate priest, prophet, and king foreshadowed
throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Using biblical insights
and engaging stories, Father Barron affirms that we see
Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament.
Through this deeply biblical program, you will better
understand Jesus, become more familiar with Scripture, and
realize your own priestly, prophetic, and kingly mission,
received when you are baptized “into Christ.”
Come experience the Labyrinth
St. Celestine Parish, 3020 N. 76th Court, Elmwood Park, IL, invites you to discover the positive effects of walking the
labyrinth to reflect, meditate, and to realign your deeper self during this Lenten season.
The labyrinth and meditation room will be open during the following hours. It takes
approximately 20 minutes to walk.

Reflections from our Holy Father Pope Francis
And the Lord invites us to this: to be rejuvenated Easter people on a journey of love, patience, enduring our
tribulations and also – I would say – putting up with one another. We must also do this with charity and love,
because if I have to put up with you, I’m sure you will put up with me; and in this way, we will move forward on our
journey on the path of Jesus. (Homily, May 7, 2013)

Thoughts for the Week
I risk being wrong if I trust too much. But I risk living
in torment if I don't trust enough.--Anonymous
Unhappy is death without the love of the Savior;
unhappy is love without the death of the Savior.
