PASTOR’S COLUMN
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I saw this reflection in Bringing Home the Word published by Ligouri Publications
and wanted to share it with you.
HUMBLE WORDS
“he fell down at Jesus feet saying ‘Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful
man’” Luke 5:8
My husband and I joke that the sweetest three words in the English language
aren’t “I love you” but “You were right.” We relish hearing them, but they’re often
hard to say, especially when you’re certain you were the one who had it right, however trivial “it” was. It’s tough to admit you’re wrong and that you don’t have all the
answers.
Simon Peter faced this dilemma in the Gospel. He had followed Jesus’ command
to lower the nets, but you can almost hear the exasperation – sarcasm, even – dripping from his voice: “We have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at
your command I will lower the nets.” I can’t blame him: He was exhausted, an experienced fisherman, and now someone trained as a carpenter is telling him how to
do his job. I imagine he expected to pull up an empty net and shake his head knowingly at Jesus.
But he ends us having to admit that Jesus was right as the nets practically tear
open from the weight of the fish. His self-confidence melts, and Simon sees himself as
nothing but a sinful man. He joins the ranks of Isaiah (in the first reading) and St. Paul
(in the second) in claiming he is unworthy to draw near to and serve the Lord.
Jesus specifically chooses sinful, broken people as His followers. It’s baffling, but
it’s true. Simon was unworthy and we are unworthy, but as St. Paul reminds us, “His
grace to me has not been ineffective.” God’s grace fills us with what is lacking, and
we are then capable of believing, following, and serving the Lord.
Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
From the Servant’s Heart

7 pm "MAsh" on Ash Wednesday
We shall have an additional Mass at 7pm on Ash Wednesday in Spanish.
Thank you Fr. Pako who suggested it. "ASH and you will receive." Please
take note then that it's NOT going to be at 8pm as I have announced last
Sunday at the 5pm Mass. I apologize for the wrong information. I "ASHure
you. It's 7pm. Not 8."
Additional Masses this Lent
It's the season of Lent once again! "It's the most penitential time of the
year!" As part of our observance of this "most penitential" season in our
liturgical year, we shall offer you an evening Mass at 6pm. Monday and
Wednesday Masses will be in English and Tuesday and Thursday Masses
in Spanish.
We shall also have a Saturday Morning Mass at 8:15 am in English.
"STAYtions of the Cross" on TGIF
What about spending your TGIF evening this Lent by "STAYing" with
Jesus in The "STAY"tions of the Cross? It would be a wonderful Lenten
sacrifice to revisit the passion and death of our Lord that's contained in
this beautiful devotion.
Our Stations of the Cross will be on Fridays. Traditional style at 12:10pm
in English. Another one at 7 pm hosted by various ministries at OLPH. I
am grateful to our friends who have volunteered to take turns as they lead
us and journey with us in this prayer. Thank you very much! This will always be the best "PrayStations" ever!
"Together (ToGather) in Mission"
TIM (Together In Mission) is here with us once again! TIM gives us this
wonderful opportunity to be part of our beloved Archdiocese's mission
which is to financially support other struggling parishes and schools.
"Together" as one let us take part in TIM "ToGather" our prayers and
resources and share them with our brothers and sisters so we keep our
churches and schools open to serve the spiritual needs of the People of
God. "Sharing is Caring."
February 20 - 21
Pope Francis has enlivened the Church to
renew our spirit of evangelization. Through their
ministries and education supported by funds
provided through Together in Mission, recipient
parishes and schools are doing just that, reaching out to their communities and making the
message of God’s love known to those around
them.
The funds we collect will directly benefit
more than 500,000 of our Catholic brethren, and
ensure our parishes and schools remain open
as centers of faith and hope for the communities
most in need.
For those of you that have generously given
to Together in Mission in the past, we prayerfully ask you renew your generous support. And
may God bless you for your continued commitment to help.
"Our Church is alive with the Sound of Music!"
We are grateful to God for Amy and our choir! We missed you. Hopefully,
you had a wonderful and restful break. Thank you so much for keeping
our Masses alive with your gift of songs and music that lead us all to
prayer.
We are also deeply blessed with our new singing group for the 5pm Sunday Mass composed of new guitarists and kids who've volunteered to give
back to God and share with us their wonderful talents in music. Thank you
for singing and playing and serving the People of God.
"No Double Parking Please"
Please do us a favor by not "double parking." God forbid something happens to one of our parishioners and he could not get out. You wouldn't like
that to happen to you, would you? Please help us then to prevent that
"potential accident" lest we find ourselves in "double jeopardy!" Thank you
so much for your cooperation and understanding.
"The Dynamic Duo!"
We thank Dennis Rogers and Mike Baumann for helping us put up our
images of The Divine Mercy and Our Lady of Guadalupe. We really appreciate your accomplishment so that more parishioners can really enjoy
seeing them, appreciating them, and be inspired to pray to The Divine
Mercy and Our Lady of Guadalupe.
"Thank you, my dear Gifts!"
Once again, Fr. Pako and I cannot thank you enough for all your Christmas cards and presents. Thank you also for being great gifts to us and to
our church. Each one of you is a gift from God. We cannot serve the People of God by ourselves. Thank you for all you do to assist us and even
lead us in the mission of our

beginning. Staying together is church.

COMMON TRICKS STRANGERS USE

Are you familiar with the news show segments testing children’s safety knowledge?
They often feature “strangers” trying to lure children with offers of ice cream, modeling contracts, or other goodies. They know that while
many children are taught to avoid strangers,
they may not be taught to recognize abduction
tactics.

MINISTERIO HISPANO
Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo,
Vi esta reflexión en Bringing Home the Word publicada por Ligouri Publications y
quiero compartirla con ustedes.
PALABRAS HUMILDES
“se arrojó a los pies de Jesús y le dijo: ¡Apártate de mí, Señor,
porque soy pecador'” Lucas 5:8
Mi esposo y yo bromeamos de que las palabras más dulces en nuestro idioma no
son "Te quiero" sino "Tenías razón". Nos entusiasma escucharlas, pero a menudo son
difíciles de decir, especialmente cuando estamos seguros de que tenemos la razón. Es
difícil admitir que estamos equivocados y que no tenemos todas las respuestas.
Simón Pedro enfrenta este dilema en el Evangelio. Él había seguido el mandato de
Jesús de echar las redes de nuevo, pero casi se puede oír la exasperación – sarcasmo,
incluso, en su voz: "hemos trabajado toda la noche y no hemos pescado nada, pero,
confiado en tu palabra, echaré las redes". No podemos culparlo: él estaba agotado,
era un pescador experimentado y ahora alguien entrenado como un carpintero viene
a decirle como hacer su trabajo. Me imagino que él esperaba sacar una red vacía y
sacudiendo su cabeza se la enseñaría a Jesús.
Pero tuvo que admitir que Jesús tenía razón las redes prácticamente se rompían
por el peso de los peces. Su confianza en sí mismo se desvanece, y Simón Pedro se ve
a si mismo nada más como un hombre pecador. Se une a las filas de Isaías (en la
primera lectura) y a San Pablo (en la segunda) diciendo que era indigno de estar cerca
del Señor y servirlo.
Jesús elige específicamente a personas pecadoras, como sus seguidores. Es
desconcertante, pero es verdad. Simón Pedro era indigno y nosotros somos indignos,
pero como nos recuerda san Pablo, "su gracia para mí no ha sido ineficaz." La gracia
de Dios llena lo que nos falta, y entonces somos capaces de creer, siguiendo y
sirviendo al Señor.

Regulations for Ash Wednesday and Lent
Abstinence from eating meat is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays during
Lent. This applies to all persons 14 and older.
The law of Fasting on Ash Wednesday and
Good Friday applies to all persons who are 18 or
older, but not yet 59 years old. Fasting means
that one full meatless meal per day may be
eaten.
As an alternative, two other meatless meals
may be taken sufficient to maintain strength,
but together they should not equal a full meal.
Liquids, including milk and fruit juice, may be
taken between meals. If health or ability to work
is affected, fasting does not oblige.
Private, self-imposed observance of Fasting
on Lenten weekdays is strongly recommended.
Pastors and parents should ensure that children
who are not bound by the law of fasting and abstinence are taught by authentic sense of penance, conversion, and reconciliation.
