GOOD NEWS lsaiah

49:r4-r5l r Corinthian*4:r-5 / Matthew 6:24-34

Saturday, March r:

"Jesus loves me, this I know." We nod our heads when asked whether God loves us, but what would you say if you were askedr "Does God like you?" God's love is often difficult to fathom. Some of us are rational: "God loves ev-eryone"-the unspoken thought being, "lt's his job to love me." We say this about parents as well: "She's my mom, she has to say that." This idea of God's love never moves further than the head.

Other people compaftmentalize the love: "God loves me, but only when l'm good" or "God loves only the good parts of me." Still others use God's love as a shield against responsibility: "God forgives me no matter what I do and would never judge me harshly." God becomes a marshmal-low-all sugar, no nutrition. ln reality, God's love holds us in delight as parents delight in their children. God's love rejoices in us as the Creator rejoices in endless variety and hidden mystery. God's love doesn't come out of neces-sity. Rather, it springs out of the nature of God. Out of love, God holds us account-able for our actions, -forgives us when we ask, and is an abiding presence whether we recognize it or not. When we turn away, God is there. When we suffer, God walks with us. When we sin, God is the source of our conversion. God grounds us in peace and joy. God doesn't love us because we are the greatest and best-in that case, none of us would be worthy. God simply

LIVING IN LOVE RETREAT MArCh 15-1 6, 2474 Often we say that we want to live our lives as Jesus would want us to. Sometimes we hear about Pope John Paul ll's Theology of the Body and wonder how to incorporate his divine plan for couples into our everyday lives. Some days we feel like we want to love our spouse and make him or her feel loved and special. But it can be such a mystery to know and be able to actually make this real for us with our busy lives. A Living in Love Weekend will be presented by the best-selling authors of Passionate Parent Passionate Couple, Ed and Betty Coda, please join us at St. Stephen Church on March 15-:.6. After they experienced this mini-retreat, they learned ways to solve this mystery for their own marriage and now they want to share this good news with others. (Pease take home aflier.) Please join them. See the website www.livinginlove.org for more information and to register or call 839-o837.

Is tlrere anything eke slu can d.ofor Lent?

of Canon Lau, at age 14 your daughter isn't required to fast (eating only one full meal a day, no snacks); the Church requires this only of people aged 18 through 59 because people outside those age groups need more than one full meal a day to maintain Code

good health (1252).

She is, however, old enough to abstain from meat as required of Catholics aged 1.4 rnd older. But she should replace that meat with another source of protein like cheese or fish. Please tell your daughter that the knten fast is about preparing our heafts to celebrate the joy of Easter. Fasting and abstinence are not about starving or losing weight; they're about making room for God, deepening our relationship with Christ. And the word abstain isn't limited to matters involving food. Your daughter can abstain from watching television, using her cell phone except in emergencies, or using the computer for anything other than schoolwork Prayer and almsgiving (donating money and/ or time to charity) are also part of our Lenten practice. Anyone can safely do these thinp to achieve the same result: growing closer to God in preparation for Easter. Fr. Patrick Keyes, CSsP. sundaybulletin@liguoi.org (Plcase seeb are tno

Those who have been accepted as Catechumen now move forward to the Order of the Elect (something like electing someone to office). The are received by the Bishop at the Cathedral, they sign their names in the Book of the Elect and begin the final days of preparation. Please keep them in your prayers.
