Christ's weakness is stronger than any human strength. The power of the cross is greater than anything the world or evil has to combat it. The Lenten season is one of repentance, self-denial, almsgiving, and prayer. Many in our modern world do not see any wisdom in denying themselves anything. Those swept away in a consumer culture want more and they want it faster, bigger, and better. They also are looking for easy and quick satisfaction, unwilling to wait long. Paul speaks of the "foolishness of God" and how it is wiser than any human wisdom. Lent is a time to put aside that which we feel and think as humans and put on the attitude of Christ. The cross of Christ is neither easy nor fleeting, and it will ask us to deny our very selves for him. To the human mind it makes no sense. However, by putting on Christ and seeing with his eyes, we see reality with clarity. Our sacrifice can lead to riches that only a "foolish" man would covet. But it is exactly there that we are satisfied and fulfilled. Our Easter giving trees and baskets are up now. Please take a tag or more from them to help those in need with suggested food items. God bless you -Your Human Concerns Committee Attention: St. Mary’s Parishioners Beginning Monday, February 16, through Friday, March 27th, all daily and weekend Masses scheduled at St. Mary’s will be held in the ANNEX.

Please plan accordingly and feel free to attend weekend Masses at St. Robert’s: 4:30pm Saturday and 10am Sunday’s. This will allow the artists to complete their work without interruption, allowing us to be back in our newly painted and embellished sacred space for Palm Sunday services.
