Fr. George’s Weekly Message:
Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return

Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return
“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” These words spoken by the priest as he signs our foreheads with the ashes on Ash Wednesday, re-minds us of our nothingness. It reminds us of how futile it is to hold tenaciously to things of this world. It reminds us that we came into this world with nothing, and nothing we shall return. It reminds us how useless it is to be boastful or prideful be-cause of our material possessions or success. What does it teach us then?
It teaches us to be more focus on the things that last, and to give gratitude to God who provides for our material needs. It teaches us therefore to apply all that we have to the service of God through the sacrifices we make for the good of others. The Lenten sea-son affords us an opportunity to grow in this regard, by practicing the acts of charity as summarized in prayer, abstinence, fasting, and almsgiving. These traditional disci-plines of lent provide avenues for us to realize how powerful we are made by God with-out being subservient to material things. It is like saying, ‘we own you, you do not own us.’ As Paul tells Timothy, “For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control” (2Timothy 1:7). Being faithful to the disciplines of lent reasserts one’s mastery over self in relation to passions and de-sires.
Going without food, giving up habits and things that otherwise we are addicted to, and making sacrifices by way of charity and almsgiving confirms the power God bestows us with as men and women created in His image and likeness. Jesus’ defeat of evil in the temptation gives us a clue to how we may use our power to the glory of God. He says, “One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God”; “You shall not put the Lord, your God to the test”; “The Lord, your God, shall you worship and him alone shall you serve” (Mat 4:1-11). This puts to perspective where our allegiance lies. For us to overcome the world, we must be masters of ourselves, and lent affords us an oppor-tunity to demonstrate that we are indeed masters of our selves. And So, I pray God’s Love on you and your family; and may we be renewed in body and spirit as we begin this Lenten season. Amen!
Announcement
Parish Lenten Soup: Soup will be served on all Wednesdays of Lent at St. An-thony’s Hall. The evening would begin at 5:45pm with Stations of the Cross, Mass, and Soup. Please endeavor to take your families to these Wednesdays for a spiritual renewal this Lenten season.
Lenten Season: Regulations for Fast and Abstinence
† FASTING is to be observed by all 18 years of age and older who have not yet cele-brated their 59th birthday. On a fast day one full meal is allowed. Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one's needs, but to-gether they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and juices, are allowed. † ABSTINENCE is observed by all 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence no meat is allowed. Note that when health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. When in doubt concerning fast and abstinence, the pastor or pastoral administrator should be consulted. · Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018 and Good Friday, March 30, 2018 are days of fast and abstinence. All the Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence. · Fast-ing, almsgiving, and prayer are the three traditional disciplines of Lent. The faithful, the Elect and those Candidates preparing for Reception into Full Communion in the Catholic Church should undertake these practices seriously in a spirit of penance and of preparation for baptism or of renewal of baptism at Easter.
