From the Pastor’s Desk
Del escritorio del Párroco
By Rev. David J. Gaffny
Por Pbro. David J. Gaffny
Not so many years ago at this time of year, and still today in
some places by some people, Christian children used to make
sport of their Jewish schoolmates or neighbors calling them
“Christ killers”. It has always been easy to blame the death of
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on someone else or on some
other group. To do so makes us feel that we ourselves are not
to blame. Nevertheless, when a person points a finger at another person, three fingers point back to accuse the pointer.
No hace muchos años en este tiempo del año, y aún hoy en algunos lugares por alguna gente, los niños cristianos hacían el deporte de sus compañeros de clase o vecinos judíos que los llamaban
los “asesinos de Cristo”. Ha sido siempre fácil culpar la muerte
de Nuestro Señor y Salvador Jesucristo en otra persona u otro
grupo. Hacerlo nos hace sentir que nosotros mismos no tenemos
culpa. Sin embargo, cuando una persona apunta un dedo a otra
persona, tres dedos puntean al indicador.
Perhaps we finger pointers want to use the fool’s consolation
that others are worse off than ourselves. The sad truth is that
our sinfulness is much worse than any of the Jews of Jesus’
time or, even more so, those of today. We who call ourselves
Christians claim that we are followers of Jesus Christ, our
Lord and Savior, while they are not. Yet, all too often we
only follow him when it is convenient to do so or we pick and
choose those teachings of Holy Mother Church which give us
warm and fuzzy feelings but require no sacrifice. (The term
“cafeteria Catholic” is appropriate here.) As a result, we crucify the Son of God anew in our hearts and hold him up to
scorn by our example. Our guilt is worse because we know or
should know what we are doing and we know its effect on the
body of Christ. As for the Jews, Jesus himself said, “Father,
forgive them; they do not know not what they are doing” (Lk
23:34). Or, as Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “None of the
rulers of this age understood this [that is, God’s plan]; for if
they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” (I
Cor 2:8).
Quizás cuando apuntamos el dedo deseamos utilizar el consuelo
de los tontos porque los otros son peores que nosotros mismos. La triste verdad es que nuestra culpa es mucho peor que
cualquier de los judíos del tiempo de Jesús o, aun más peor, los
de hoy. Nosotros que nos llamamos cristianos pretendemos que
somos seguidores de Cristo, Nuestro Señor y Salvador, mientras
muchas veces no lo somos. Todavía, muy a menudo lo seguimos
solamente cuando es conveniente hacerlo o seleccionamos esas
enseñanzas de la Santa Madre Iglesia que nos den sensaciones de
complacencia pero que no nos requieren ningún sacrificio. (El
término “católico de la cafetería” es apropiado aquí.) El resultado es que crucificamos al Hijo de Dios de nuevo en nuestros corazones y hasta lo ponemos en ridículo por nuestro mal ejemplo. Nuestra culpabilidad es peor porque sabemos o debemos
saber lo que estamos haciendo y sabemos su efecto en el cuerpo
de Cristo. En cuanto a los judíos, Jesús mismo dijo, “Padre,
perdónalos, no saben lo que están haciendo” (Lc 23:34). O, como Pablo escribió a los corintios, “Esto [el plan de Dios] es algo
que no han entendido los gobernantes de este mundo, pues si lo
hubieron entendido no habrían crucificado al Señor de la gloria” (1 Cor 2:8).
God gives each one of us opportunity after opportunity to turn
back to him, to abandon our reckless ways, to truly trust in his
love and mercy, in a word, to take up our cross daily and follow him. His love is never lacking; it is unconditional. He
waits for us as the father waited for his dissolute son to return
to his home; where the father ordered that the son be clothed
in the finest robes, that a ring be put on his finger, sandals on
his feet, the fatted calf be butchered, and a celebration begin
with music and dancing (Lk 15:22-24). Are we ever to think
that the son left his father again?
Dios da a cada uno de nosotros oportunidad tras oportunidad de
regresar a él, de abandonar nuestras maneras imprudentes, de
confiar de veras en su amor y misericordia, en una palabra, de
llevar nuestra cruz de cada día y seguirle. Su amor nunca falta;
es incondicional. Él nos espera como el padre esperó a su hijo
disoluto para volver a su casa; donde el padre mandó a los sirvientes que traigan el mejor ropa para vestirlo, que le pongan un
anillo en el dedo y sandalias en los pies, que le maten el ternero
más gordo para celebrar un banquete con música y baile (Lc
15:22-24). ¿Piensan ustedes que el hijo iba a dejar a su padre
otra vez?
God has committed himself to us; he has loved us. Out of
gratitude we show our thanks for his unmerited gifts to us by
committing ourselves to him. We show this by accepting the
totality of his love and teachings which bring us to the total
practice of our faith. In this we are united to Christ’s sacrifice
as we participate at the Eucharist and we are united to one
another in loving service for the glory of God and the salvation of Jew and gentile alike.
Dios se nos ha encomendado a nosotros; él nos ha amado. De
gratitud, demostrémosle las gracias por los regalos que nos ha
dado sin merito de nuestra parte por encomendárnosle a él. Demostramos esto por aceptar la totalidad de su amor y enseñanzas
cuáles nos lleven a la práctica total de nuestra fe. Con esto nos
unimos al sacrificio de Cristo por participar en el Eucaristía y nos
unimos los a unos a los otros en el servicio cariñoso para la gloria
de Dios y la salvación tanto del judío como del gentil.

Fifth Sunday of Lent
Prayer Request Line 645-6275 ext. 111
March 22, 2015
It is just a bit puzzling that Jesus does not directly answer the disciples
when they come to him with the request from some Greeks who would like
to meet him. We are not actually told whether he met with them or not. Instead, we see him fully absorbed in the brief time that remains for him on
earth. It is quite clear that the full significance of his decision to pursue his
Father's will sits squarely before him, and he is struggling with that reality. "What should I
say," he asks, "Father save me from this hour? But it was for this that I came." The disciples
must surely have been puzzled by the expression of these thoughts, since they did not understand what was about to happen. "When I am lifted up, I will draw everyone to myself." Jesus understands that it is only by his death and resurrection that the work of salvation will be
accomplished. All of this he did out of love, love for his Father, and love for us.
Lent is a time of penance, a time in which we are meant to practice self-denial and to
shore up the weak spots in our personal spiritual edifices. What is the primary tool to which
we must all have recourse if we are to accomplish this goal? How can we find the strength to
restore our faith to its proper place, to come to grips with our failure to serve the poor, or to be
chaste, or to refrain from vanity or over-indulgence? There is one thing and one thing alone
that will suffice: the love of Christ. Certainly the most difficult task we have during Lent is to
believe in our hearts that Christ loves us. We are so absorbed in addressing our sinfulness that
we can easily lose sight of the fact that Christ does forgive the penitent and that we must accept his forgiveness. That acceptance means that we must also forgive ourselves, no matter
how impossible that may seem. If we fail to do so, then we essentially say that our sin is
greater than God's love, we put ourselves and our sins beyond God, and that is a situation that
cannot be true.
"I will place my law within them and write it in their hearts." says the Lord in the first
reading. Yes, we should always be aware of the existence of God's law in our hearts, and as
we go through Lent we should also be aware that God draws us to himself out of love. Failure
to accept that love would be a terrible thing indeed.
Deacon Tim
Unhappy is death
without the love of the Savior;
unhappy is love
without the death of the Savior.

Thoughts on Stewardship
What does it mean to be God’s people? It means we recognize that everything we
have and everything we are belongs to God. We aren’t “owners” of anything, we
are merely “stewards” of the gifts God has given us. It means we are willing to use
our gifts and our lives to care for our neighbors and the world, just as God cares for
us.
“I will be their God and they shall be my people.” – Jeremiah 31:33
Stewardship Commitment forms are available at the church office or on our church
website at www.immaconception.org for your convenience. Thank you.
