Israel, David & The Kingdom
Join us Wednesday, February 4th at 6:30PM in the Parish Hall for an introduction to this amazing study of
God’s chosen people. Through this study we will travel with the Israelites from their preparation to enter the
Promised Land to their return from exile. We will learn, like the Israelites, what it means to be “God’s people”.
What others are saying about the study. . .
“The study provides a powerful combination of sound,
up-to-date Catholic Bible scholarship and effective use of
the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the wisdom of the
Saints and a consistent depth of insight in applying
scripture to daily life” Peter Herbeck, Renewal Ministries
The introductory session will be held Wednesday, February 4th in the Parish Hall.
Registration is required!

Commandments of Love
In a book I’ve been reading there is an account of a man who lived in Paris for eighty years with no desire to leave. One
day he was commanded by the King of France to remain there for the remainder of his life. In response, he immediately
left the city to see the country which he had never wanted to see during his previous days.
God’s commandments sometimes affect us in this way. If we view God’s commandments as tyrannical, unfair or even
impossible with which to live, rebellion is the typical response. It is only when God’s commandments are understood as
stemming from love that we begin to find in ourselves the capacity to comply with increasing docility and thanksgiving.
We begin recognizing the great benefit to ourselves in the framework of eternal life but also in the present time.
When I find myself lapsing even in a minor way, there is inevitably a degree of discord that I sense in my soul. It begins to
manifest physically as irritation, aggravation, frustration and myriad other agitated states that I direct both towards myself
and towards others. For all of us, disconnection from God is reflected in every other relationship we hold dear. Conflicts
emerge and contentiousness abounds. This is why David cried out in psalm, “O Lord, Your justifications are sweet songs
to me in this place of my pilgrimage.” (Ps 118:54)
God’s justifications, grounded in His commandments are great gift and sweet songs. We can see this in the world itself as
we continually drift through the stormy sea of relativism. When all becomes a matter of personal choice, when the lines
increasingly blur between right and wrong, all of society becomes unsettled.
There was a time not long ago when the world of a child was relatively the same as the world of parents and grandparents.
Change happened slowly. Values were passed on one to the other. But now everything changes at lightning speed.
Innovation and technology are transformed faster than any person can possibly keep pace.
The first published newspaper was printed in 1605. The first public library opened in 1833. Radio broadcasting began in
1920. What used to happen over the course of many generations now occurs within the time span of one. My
grandparents had no radio in their youth, my parents had no TV, and I had no computer in my childhood years.
In a few hundred years we’ve gone from limited word of mouth information to limitless information at the press of a button.
And in a few decades we’ve moved from computers that required data processing skills to internet availability in the
pockets of grade school children. There is simply no disciplined way to adapt to this massive onslaught of information.
Quality of knowledge from the days of the great theologians, philosophers and scientists is being wiped out by the tsunami
of poor quality information that is not evaluated, sorted or filtered in any meaningful way.
When every conceivable bit of information can now be viewed in full color on a screen, the individual person may lose the
ability to distinguish evil from good or perhaps begin to believe neither one truly exists. Everything loses context.
Everything just is. So then is the individual. A person is whittled down to a single mish-mash of personal choices. Deep
confusion is the result, and seeking distraction is the often sought after remedy. And Satan and his minions most certainly
laugh at how easy their work has become.
God’s commandments are a great gift of love. They enable us to recognize a value in ourselves and others. They are not
hurdles to overcome, but molds to conform us to the shape of God Himself; not obstacles that repress joyful living, but
armor to defend us both now and for eternity.
EVANGELISM IN ACTION: Put on the armor of God’s love-filled commandments.

THE CATHOLIC FAITH EXPLAINED
The sacrament of the Eucharist lies at the very heart of the
Catholic faith. When we receive Holy Communion, we are
united with Jesus in the most intimate way possible here
on earth. The almighty God, Creator of the universe,
humbles himself so that he can become one with each of
us. God is within us, within our very souls, each time we
attend Mass and receive communion.
Join us January 18th as we take a closer look at The
Eucharist as Real Presence, Sacrifice and as Communion.
Everyone is welcome, so don't forget To invite a friend or
two! Sundays: Fellowship
and Continental breakfast
at 10am followed by
instruction at 10:30am.

“Prayer is the foundation of all that we do in defense of human
life. Our efforts—whether educational, pastoral, or legislative—
will be less than fully fruitful if we do not change hearts and if we
do not ourselves overcome our own spiritual blindness. Only with
prayer—prayer that storms the heavens for justice and mercy,
prayer that cleanses our hearts and our souls—will the culture of
death that surrounds us today be replaced with a culture of life.”
— Excerpt from the Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities, USCCB
Please prayerfully consider committing to a Holy Hour each week

Sacrament. If you are unable to commit to a specific hour each

STRUGGLING AFTER AN ABORTION OR A MISCARRIAGE?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
RACHEL’S VINEYARD HEALING RETREAT
HOPE AFTER ABORTION OR A MISCARRIAGE: Rachel’s Vineyard weekends are a beautiful opportunity
for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of abortion and miscarriage. The
weekend is a very specific process designed to help you experience the mercy and compassion of God.
It is also an opportunity to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt and grief.
Experience the healing love of Jesus Christ during a Rachel’s Vineyard healing retreat. This retreat
offers a chance to get away from daily pressures and to focus deeply into the grieving process, buried
emotions and identify the ways your abortion or miscarriage may have affected you.
Discussions, spiritual exercises, prayer and reflection combined with the Sacrament of Reconciliation, a
Memorial Service honoring your child and a Mass of Entrustment will help to heal the wounds of your
past. Rachel’s Vineyard provides a non-judgmental, safe environment. Participation is strictly
confidential and offers a beautiful opportunity to experience God’s love, forgiveness and tender
compassion. Both men and women are invited to experience this weekend, which will help your soul find
a voice, and transform the pain of the past into love and hope. This healing program is an apostolate of
the Catholic Church, but those from other faith backgrounds are welcome to attend.
The retreat begins on Friday, February 27, 2015 and will go through Sunday, March 1, 2015. It will be
held at Casa San Carlos in Delray Beach.
Pre-registration is required.
