On Sunday, February 17th in our parish, there was a procession and solemn enthronement of the Virgin of Altagracia. Fr. Michael blest this image and touched it to the miraculous original in Higuey in the Dominican Republic. During lent, we ask the help of the Blessed Virgin, to draw ever closer to her Divine Son and his Church. As we take our call to conversion seriously through prayer, fasting and alms giving, we remember our Parish Mission of the Holy Spirit in the Dominican Republic. This lent, pray for them in a special way each day. Have your call to almsgiving attach you to our Mission in La Vega more strongly, by sponsoring a child for a month. And to remember to contribute to the support of our mission regularly throughout the year. May we always remember and heed Our Lady’s words at Cana: DO WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU.

Third Sunday of Lent March 3, 2013 The LORD secures justice and the rights of all the oppressed. -- Psalm 103:6 MERCY God is mercy. That seems to be the main message of the reading from Exodus. God has seen the suffering of the Israelites and promises mercy and rescue. From then on, God is to be known as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Paul calls his readers to continue to grow in the faith. The God who rescued Israel also rescues them. As beneficiaries of God's mercy, Christians must keep on working, doing their part to become ever more trusting and loving people of God. The Gospel's second section is a homey story about God's mercy. Against the advice of the land owner, the vinedresser pleads for mercy--and shows mercy--to allow the poor fig tree yet another year to become productive. Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co.

Tercer Domingo de Cuaresma 3 de marzo de 2013 El Señor hace justicia y defiende a todos los oprimidos. — Salmo 103 (102):6 Domingo 3 de Marzo. Tercer Domingo de Cuaresma Reflexionando la Palabra de Dios Cuando comenzamos la Cuaresma y con la imposición se nos invitaba a la conversión. El Señor nos recordaba que somos su viña. Pueblo de su propiedad. Nación consagrada. Y que, esa viña ese pueblo o nación, han de ser cuidados con la oración, la penitencia o la caridad. ¿Cómo van esos propósitos? ¿Hemos avanzado en algo? ¿Hemos salido del vacío para llenar nuestra vida de contenido? ¿Hemos socorrido alguna necesidad material o espiritual de alguien necesitado? ¿Nos hemos alejado de algunos aspectos opulentos, artificiales o superficiales? ¿Somos conscientes de la variedad de oportunidades que Dios nos da para realizarnos como sus hijos? Dios sigue esperando mucho de nosotros. No siempre saldrán las cosas como nosotros pensamos y como Dios merece. Pero la realidad es esta: Dios nos quiere optimistas en el camino de la fe. Aún en medio de dudas y de complicaciones, de pruebas y de sufrimientos. Y no sólo espera de nosotros mucho sino que, además, se compromete, como propietario de la viña, de la que formamos parte, para que sigamos sembrando ilusiones y esperanzas, el evangelio y sus mandamientos allí donde estemos presentes. El Señor no nos corta el camino, lo ilumina y guía. Es el momento, por lo tanto, de hacer un balance real de nuestra personal o comunitaria cuaresma. ¿Qué frutos estamos dando? ¿De qué esclavitudes tenemos que desentendernos? ¿De qué caminos u opciones hemos de volver para estar más en comunión con el Señor? Soltémonos, en medio de esta cuaresma, de todo aquello que nos impide dar lo mejor de nosotros mismos. Demostremos todo lo bueno que habita en nuestro interior y convenzámonos de que, con la ayuda del Señor, no hay lucha o empeño que nos resulte imposible. Él va delante de nosotros.

10 de marzo-No se olviden de adelantar el reloj 1 hora el próximo domingo.

El jueves, 7 de marzo, 2013 desde 5:00pm a 7:00pm, todas las Parroquias iluminaran la entrada de la Iglesia para indicar que un sacerdote esta presente y esperando para escuchar las confesiones individuales. Le pedimos que devotamente aproveche esta oportunidad de recibir la gracia de sanación por medio del Sacramento de reconciliación durante la Cuaresma.

AÑO DE LA FE: MARZO DE 2013 De la Cuaresma al Triduo Pascual: camino de la conversión Meditación El Año de la Fe es una invitación a una auténtica y renovada conversión al Señor Jesús, único Salvador del mundo. En el misterio de su muerte y resurrección, Dios ha revelado en plenitud el amor que salva y llama a los hombres a la conversión de vida mediante la remisión de los pecados (ver Benedicto XVI, La puerta de la fe, 6). Este mes de marzo, en este Año de la Fe, nos guía en nuestro camino cuaresmal de la conversión al Triduo Pascual: el lavatorio de los pies y la Misa de la Cena del Señor el Jueves Santo, la celebración de la Pasión de Jesús que nos da la vida el Viernes Santo, la Vigila y la alegría de la resurrección gloriosa de Jesús el Domingo de Pascua. En algunas parroquias, especialmente aquellas con catecúmenos, los evangelios durante marzo nos ofrecen el desafío de unirnos con la mujer samaritana y el hombre ciego de nacimiento en profundizar nuestro entendimiento de Jesús como algo más que un profeta, como el Salvador del mundo. En otras parroquias, los evangelios nos invitan a dejar que el Señor nos “pode” del pecado para que demos fruto mientras hay tiempo; para que volvamos como hijos pródigos a la casa de nuestro Padre y preparemos la bienvenida para nuestros hermanos y hermanos, pecadores como nosotros; para que abracemos nosotros el perdón de Jesús, ofrecido con tanta clemencia a la mujer adultera. Estos evangelios nos piden que abramos nuestros corazones a la gracia de Dios, ligera pero poderosa, que lentamente purifica y transforma nuestros pensamientos y relaciones con otros, nuestra mentalidad y conducta. Pero si en Pascua nos encontramos desilusionados con nuestra transformación incompleta, la constante celebración de la Cuaresma cada año nos recuerda: la conversión, como el camino de la fe, es verdaderamente un camino de toda la vida.

Misión Buscar el perdón y la reconciliación en el Sacramento de la Penitencia y ofrecer el perdón y la reconciliación a todos con quienes no tengo la paz. —Peter Scagnelli, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

Retiros “La Viña de Raquel” La Viña de Raquel nos ofrece un lugar seguro donde se logra reconstruir y redimir los corazones rotos por motivo de un aborto. Allí se ofrece un ambiente confidencial donde no se le juzga, y donde hombres y mujeres pueden expresarse y reconciliar aquellas emociones que han suscitado después de un aborto, y así comenzar el proceso de renovación y sanación. El próximo retiro en ingles será: 15 de marzo 17 de marzo y en español el 5 de abril - 7 de abril, 2013.
