On this Third Sunday of Lent, we enter into a reflection on what God’s commands mean to us. Are they a list of does and don’ts? Or are they something that we take to heart and allow to consume us with zeal for the work that God has set before us? Let us pray today for the wisdom to know how God truly wants us to live. Today, Year B’s Lenten invitation to covenant-love features the Ten Commandments, whose twofold call to love of God and neighbor takes flesh in the Person of Jesus. In Jesus’ example of unconditional love, this invitation becomes an enduring model for the baptismal commitment of Jesus’ disciples. Our culture assesses worth and assigns status on the basis of where and how one lives, what someone owns and wears, how much a person has and spends. Choosing instead to lay down one’s life for one’s friends, while forgiving one’s executioners, must surely seem foolishness and weakness. Yet, as Saint Paul reminds us, Christ crucified chose precisely this foolishness. Christian faith proclaims Jesus to be the power of God and the wisdom of God. By baptism, or baptismal renewal, at the forthcoming Easter Vigil, we will profess our faith that the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger that human strength. Further, we will commit ourselves to act on the covenant revealed in Sinai’s Ten Commandments and made flesh in Jesus’ self-sacrificing love. Therefore, we should welcome Lent’s spring-cleaning, Jesus’ cleansing of the temple of our lives, that we may become living temples from which God’s praise ascends and in which God’s weary children can find refreshment. Knowing just how much cleansing must take place for that to happen, how comforting today’s Gospel reminder that Jesus, Who invites us to discipleship, does not need anyone to testify about human nature, that Jesus understood it well and loves us unconditionally.

Living Stations of the Cross Living Stations of the Cross from our Spanish community will take place on Friday, March 27 at 7:00 p.m., following the weekly soup supper. There will be translations in English. Centennial Celebration in March March 19 is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, the man God called to be the head of the Holy Family, and the protector of the Catholic Church. So we have chosen to pray a Novena to St. Joseph in the month of March. The novena will be March 11-19, during all of the Masses. “Feeding the Hungry” is this month’s theme. It fits well with the tradition of the preparation of food altars in honor of St. Joseph. During the month of March, in addition to hosting a food altar for the Solemnity of St. Joseph, we are coordinating volunteers to serve dinner at the Brother Francis shelter each night (except Fridays). More information is available at the Parish Office. Please consider partaking in this service as part of your Lenten journey. Notice that for the month of March the Holy Family statue will be receiving your food donations for the food pantry. St. Joseph’s Table will be set up on the weekend of March 21-22 for the food for St. Francis House. Catechetical Corner Notices for CCD parents: • NO CCD today.

Respect for Life Brittany Maynard's decision to end her life by selfinflicted means reminds us of the tragic reality of suicide and the injustice of laws encouraging physicianassisted suicide. Such laws facilitate the making of unreasonable decisions among those feeling weak and vulnerable as they face a serious disease or old age. Such laws encourage us to abandon the vulnerable to a hastened death, rather than building up the needed human solidarity and mutual support critical to journeying through such important personal moments of crisis. Such laws undermine the noble profession of medicine, redirecting health care workers away from their core mission of healing and toward the works of death and killing. What Brittany chose to do was motivated by fear. She feared suffering. She feared pain. She feared losing control. In a culture that labels assisted suicide as a compassionate choice, she was made to feel that by attacking her own life, she was gaining control over her life, but this was entirely false. When society fosters such fears so that we believe our best option is to kill ourselves, this is not true compassion. It is a false compassion that does not accompany the sufferer, but relegates him or her to a life without hope. It is, in fact, a form of abandonment by the medical community. It is not a “death with dignity” but the frightening indignity of verbal engineering pretending that violence is not really violence. Her death represents a tragedy that tears at our shared humanity, and a failure on the part of all of us in allowing unjust laws like the one in Oregon through which such violent and hurtful actions are granted legal status and the veneer of social acceptability. - Excerpted from The National Catholic Bioethics Center Around the Archdiocese Mark Your Calendars • • • • • March 12 March 26 April 22 May 1 June 15-18 Faith Walk Button Contest Deadline (297-7711) Chrism Mass- 7:00 p.m., Our Lady of Guadalupe Holy Rosary Academy Open House (276-5822) Ordination of Deacons (Our Lady of Guadalupe) Alaska Catholic Youth Conference - contact: [email protected] 40 Days for Life The 40 Days for Life campaign is underway.
