Abstinence
Living God’s Word
As much as we may want the temples of our lives cleared, we
also like much of what takes up our lives. Still, God does come
and does clear our temples in unsuspecting ways. Children
grow up; friendships melt into memories. What is God asking
us to clear away today?

UPCOMING EVENTS
Reflecting on God’s Word
All of us wish we could be holy, we say, if only Jesus would come and
do to the temple of our faith what he did to the temple of Israel’s faith:
cast out what doesn’t belong, because we don’t seem to be able to do it
for ourselves, at least not with much effectiveness. We try to pray and
find ourselves daydreaming about what to make for supper, about the
latest family argument, about the meeting we’re going to attend, about
where we’re going to spend our money.
We try to simplify, but we also like our lives the way they are. We like
the cut of style, the thick of our lawn, the escape of vacation, the high
from shopping or chocolate or daytime soaps or whatever catches our
fancy. We wish we would love better, care better, have more compassion or patience, be more generous, but original sin always gets in the
way—only we don’t call it original sin. We say we don’t have
willpower or the energy.
So what are we to do? John’s Gospel promises that God will come and
drive such stuff from our lives. In fact, the promise is that God will do
it whether we wish God to or not, which is probably a good move on
God’s part simply because most of us are a bit fearful of what God
may clear away.
—Rev. Joseph J. Juknialis

In Pope Francis’ 2015 ‘Message for Lent’ he shares how we must
focus on fighting indifference within all areas of the church and within
ourselves. He emphasizes the need for us, as Catholics and people of
good will, to reach out to those in the outer limits and not to preoccupy
oneself with one’s affairs and self-interests. The Holy Father said that
we become more like Christ by hearing the Word of God, receiving
the sacraments, letting ourselves be touched by the love of our Father,
and by uniting in prayer. We can transform a world filled with
indifference by using Lent as an opportunity to form our hearts.
The Holy Father asks us to reassess the nature of this activity this
Lenten season. Furthermore, we should not allow fasting to become
superficial. He frequently quotes the early Christian mystic John
Chrysostom who said: “No act of virtue can be great if it is not
followed by advantage for others. So, no matter how much time you
spend fasting, no matter how much you sleep on a hard floor and eat
ashes and sigh continually, if you do no good to others, you do nothing
great.”
This is not to downscale the importance of sacrifice during the Lenten
season, but rather placing value on what is given up during a time of
penance and self-denial. Pope Francis reminds us that our actions and
activities are done with purpose enriching the lives of others. ‘I distrust
a charity that costs nothing and does nor hurt.’

RCIA News—Praying for the Elect
Now is an exciting time for both catechumens and candidates. The catechumens are anticipating rebirth in Baptism; the candidates are anticipating
new life in our Catholic Faith, joining in a community of believers which number in the tens of millions across the U.S., and more than one billion
around the world. Please continue to pray for The Elect, those that will be baptized, Sarah Renaghan, Jo-Anne Slicker, Nancy Lee and those that
will be joining us in full communion, Amanda Martinez, Jessica Martinez, Katharine Martinez, Lindsey Bosworth, Jeffrey Brandt, Jeffrey Pfeifer,
Victoria Rich, and Henry “Trev” Moncure.
Advocacy Day
March 24, 2015
Participating in advocacy is an urgent task for the Catholic faithful in our archdiocese. Perhaps, now more than ever, we must unite
as Missionary Disciples and bring our message to the public square, and especially to our state legislators. By our very baptism, we
have been called to hunger and thirst for justice and to be peacemakers in our communities. These actions affirm the dignity of each
person as made in God’s image with rights to be respected and responsibilities to fulfill. Archbishop Gustavo wants to encourage
you to participate in Advocacy Day on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 to bring awareness, prayer and advocacy for laws and policies
that defend our religious liberty, which pursues true social justice founded upon respect for life and the common good. If you are
interested in participating in Catholic Advocacy Day or have any questions please contact the Office for Life, Justice and Peace at
210-734-1655.

40 Cans for Lent—St. Vincent de Paul
Please consider donating one can of food for each day of Lent as a
penance in preparation for the Passion of our Lord.
Have you ever thought about joining a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group? Mops is a nationally recognized organization that brings
moms together that have children between the ages of newborn
through kindergarten. Meetings will most likely be held on the first
and third Fridays of the month between 9:00-11:00 a.m. in the
St. Peter Annex Building. Dues will be $75.00 per semester (fall and
spring). During a Mops meeting, moms can gather to learn new
things by listening to a guest speaker, create a new “pinteresty” craft,
participate in a service project, or just visit with other moms.
Childcare will be provided during the meeting by having our little
ones attend “Moppets.” Older, wiser, experienced moms are invited
to join Mops as a “Mentor Mom.” We are looking to start a new
Mops group at St. Peters for the spring semester. If you are interested
in joining a Mops group, please contact Katherine Trimble at
713-822-7220.
