Whole Community Catechesis
Question of the Week
Mk 9:2-10
Transfiguration-with the Spirit of Jesus living within us,
we will be transformed
Question for Adults:
Perhaps this reading calls us, not to cling to the
familiar, but to leave the comforts of the parish and reach out to
the world around us. In your neighborhood or community, who is
waiting to hear the Good News?
Question for Adolescents:
Have you ever had a “mountain top” experience where
you felt exceptionally close to God? How was your life changed
by that experience?
Question for Children:
Share about a time when you felt especially close to
God or Jesus.

Raegan AnnMarie Colihan
Jordan Reese Ott
Taylor Ann Press
Dear Parishioners,
In my Ash Wednesday homily, I said that Lent is a
journey, most of all, into the heart: to the place of encounter
and deeper communion with the Lord. What came to mind in
the following days for me personally was a book by Father Ron
Rolheiser, Prayer: Our Deepest Longing. I read the book when
it was published in 2013, and I recently picked it up again to reread after recommending it to a friend.
Rolheiser writes at the beginning of the book about the
struggles and difficulties we encounter with prayer. One of the
big ones is the busyness of our lives, which often leaves us
indisposed to be still and enter into solitude, where an encounter
with the Lord becomes possible.
Rolheiser claims another obstacle for us in prayer is
our greed for experience. The great spiritual writer Henri
Nouwen once said, “I want to pray but I also don’t want to miss
out on anything – television, movies, socializing with friends,
drinking in the world.”
The challenge, then, is to develop a discipline of daily
prayer. Can we find a few minutes each day where we can be
quiet, and open the door into our heart, the place where we can
rest in God?
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Steve Callahan

Out and About
Pauline Books & Media presents:
Sister Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP on Saturday,
March 7th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the store. Sister will give a
talk about her new book entitled: the Prodigal You Love:
Inviting Loved Ones Back to the Church.
Listen and Follow
“This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” And listen they did.
From that moment on, Peter, James, and John were ardent
followers, forsaking everything to follow in their Master’s
footsteps. Like the psalmist crying, “O Lord, I am your servant,”
the three disciples committed themselves to lives of incredible
hardship and indescribable joy. After that day on the mountain,
they never again wavered in their chosen vocation.
Though our tests may not be as severe as Abraham’s and
our peak experiences not as dramatic as the Transfiguration, we
all face the daily challenges of walking “before the Lord in the
land of the living.” As we follow our varied calls to love and
serve, let’s be comforted by Paul’s reminder to the Romans: “If
God is for us, who can be against us?”
