Fr. Bill's Corner:

Fourth Sunday of Lent:
Scripture summary from the Ordo: “Samuel does not see as Samuel sees (1) in the choice of David, who is anointed with oil (Ps). As Jesus cures the blind man (G), so too are we brought from darkness into light (2) through the grace of baptism”
Liturgical Notes:
1. Reconciliation: This coming Tuesday, 3/28, about 1:30, we will have recon-ciliation for our school students and staff followed by reconciliation for the Faith Formation students and staff. We will have about 5 priests hearing confession (however, I will not be one of them).
2. On Thursday next week (4/6) at 7:00PM, we will have reconciliation for any-one who wants to attend. We will have guests priest then, too (however, I will not be one of them)
My Medical Leave of Absence:
This past Thursday, the doctor reaffirmed that the radiation treatments on my forehead will finish on Thursday, April 6, in the afternoon. The time probably will be too tight to get back for reconciliation, so at this time I am anticipating that I will be able to return to Harbor Beach on Friday, April 7. We’ll have to see how this goes, since another doctor told me the last two weeks are the most difficult. As of today, Sunday, I have had 24 treatments with 9 to go. So far, things have been going well. The skin on my forehead looks terrible (red, bloody, etc.), but the doctor told me that it is part of the healing process.
Last Tuesday, I had an outpatient procedure to remove a small cancer from my right cheek. I saw the doctor for that on Thursday and he said it is looking good.
I truly believe that the good reports from the doctors and the fact that I am feeling well after my 24 radiation treatments and one minor surgery, are due to all your pray-ers and concern with questions and cards. I truly want to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate your prayers, cards, and well wishes. I have prayed for you and will offer Mass for you. (I have been able to celebrate or con-celebrate Mass every day at Christ the King Parish or at the chapel at Domino’s Farms, the headquarters of Domino’s Pizza, where they have Mass 8,10, 12, and 5 o’clock every weekday and twice on Saturday morning.)

Fr. George Amos
As we approach the middle of the Lenten season, it is apt for us to take a moment and reflect on how far we have come this year. Whether we have made any significant difference in our spiritual lives over and above how we fared last year during the same period. In reflecting on our journey thus far, St. James’ words may guide us since the Lenten season is a time for practical demonstration of what our faith demands. It reads, “If a brother or sis-ter has nothing to wear and no food for the day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,” but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works is dead” (James 2:15-17).
The barest minimum of lent is prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. These give life to our faith, that is why we are called upon during lent to engage in these noble acts of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. While we acknowledge that these acts are not seasonal, lent affords us an opportunity to keep on nurturing these virtues into a habit that will remain with us all through life. In these acts, we accept that we have a special relation-ship with God and our fellow human beings that needs to be kept alive irrespective of our individual challenges. There are some of us who understand this well and have been exploring various ways to meet the demands of the gospel by expressing their love for God and humanity in different kinds of charitable engagement; some of us have either been reluctant or feel that we don’t have enough to express God’s love to those in need, or even think of ourselves to be equally in need. But, whatever category we may find ourselves, God loves us still, and gives us the opportunity to share in His love to-gether with our brothers and sisters.
