JUDE CATHOLIC CHURCH CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE FEBRUARY 22, 2015 SPIRITUAL LIFE PARISH LIFE SACRISTAN MEETING: NEW DATE AND LOCATION CALLING ALL ARTISTS Do you have artistic talent you would like to share with your St. Jude Parish community? Get your paint brushes, sewing machine, knitting needles, sketch pads, or whatever your medium may be, ready for this year's St. Jude Fine Arts Festival, hosted by the St. Jude Home & School Association on April 15, 6-8pm. There will be a community gallery in the Scout room of the gymnasium in which parishioners are invited to display their talents. Please contact Cammie Hunt (645-1437or [email protected]) to submit your works of art for others to enjoy! As you arrive for Mass, the altar breads, water, and wine are there in the inner lobby; chalices can be seen on the credence table to the left of the altar. After Mass, as you take a few minutes to talk to friends or get a hug from Fr. Charlie, the “altar dishes” (sacred vessels) are cleared away. Setting up for each Mass and cleaning up afterwards are not difficult jobs, but our priest-celebrants or deacons must do it—unless someone helps. This “helper,” whom you may never see, is a Sacristan. If you can devote a few minutes to this ministry before and after Mass, or if you are a Sacristan now, please come to the Parish Life Center on Thursday evening, February 26, at 7pm. Questions: contact Bill Laudeman at 877-8025 or [email protected] SJS APPLICATIONS FOR 2015-2016 St. Jude School is now accepting applications for students and families interested in Grades PK3-8 for the school year 2015-2016.

During this season of Lent, the production will come to Our Lady of the Mount Catholic Church on Lookout Mountain on Sunday, March 1, at 6:30pm. Actor Brad Sherill—producer and star of the one-man show—spent nearly five months memorizing all 20,000 words of John’s gospel. Using a dozen simple props in various ways, Sherrill transforms the gospel into a captivating drama, presenting the entire story of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Seating for the performance begins at 6pm. No reservation is necessary. An offering will be taken for those who choose to contribute. VIRTUS Training is required by our diocese for all adult employees and volunteers who interact in programs with parish or school youth. The next 3-hour VIRTUS awareness session will be held at St. Jude on Thursday, March 5, at 12 noon in the Parish Life Center. Please register by going online to www.virtus.org.

Un tiempo litúrgico fuerte que recuerda los cuarenta años de peregrinación del pueblo de Dios por el desierto hacia la Tierra Prometida; los cuarenta días de Moisés y Elías previos al encuentro con Dios; los de Jonás para alcanzar la penitencia y el perdón; y, sobre todo, los de Jesús antes del comienzo de su ministerio público. Un tiempo, pues, de profunda renovación interior. La Iglesia hace un llamamiento apremiante a cada uno de nosotros para que, así como Jesús se entregó por espacio de cuarenta días a un ayuno riguroso y rechazó las tentaciones del enemigo, de igual modo nosotros ayunemos de toda palabra u obra que no sea grata a Dios, preparándonos con sinceridad de corazón a las celebraciones pascuales, preludio de la Pascua eterna que disfrutaremos un día. En nuestra vida cristiana no debe extrañarnos la tendencia a la comodidad egoísta. El Señor permite la tentación porque, al superarla con la ayuda de su gracia, ella hace a la persona más madura, más comprensiva, más realista, encaminándola así hacia la eternidad. “Dichoso el varón que soporta la tentación porque, probado, recibirá la corona de la vida que el Señor prometió a los que le aman” (Sant. 1, 12). Cuaresma. Una oportunidad de oro para practicar por amor a Dios la oración, el ayuno y la limosna. Oración para conocer y amar cada día más a Jesucristo. Ayuno, no tanto del alimento cuanto de todo aquello que sabemos que desagrada a Dios. Limosna que, por ser un ejercicio de la virtud de la caridad, permite que nos acerquemos a la cumbre del vivir cristiano, porque la plenitud de la Ley de Dios es el amor. Cuaresma. Una invitación a una profunda conversión que se traduzca en una piedad más sincera y constante, no abandonando la meditación de la Palabra de Dios, la Sta Misa y la Comunión con Él por motivos banales. Conversión que se refleje en un trabajo hecho de la mejor manera que sepamos y podamos, con ilusión por la obra bien hecha. Conversión que nos lleve a afrontar con ánimo deportivo las contrariedades y roces propios de toda convivencia, no volcando en los demás el vinagre del mal humor, del resentimiento. Conversión que lleve a una guarda decidida de los sentidos para proteger al corazón de la basura moral que, a veces, impregna el ambienta que nos rodea. En pocas palabras: en un empeño sostenido por apartar de nosotros pautas de comportamiento que desdicen de la conducta de un buen cristiano. Decidámonos a acompañar estos días a Jesús contemplando su entereza al acercarse el momento de su Pasión y Muerte, valiéndonos de ese piadoso y estimulante ejercicio del Via Crucis, de la consideración de los Misterios de Dolor del Sto Rosario, o de la lectura atenta de esas horas de dolor que nos ofrecen los Evangelistas.
