fift6 S*Qy in 1rfrnary'|ime GOOD NEWS lsaiah 58:7<o /

r Corinthians z:r-5 / Matthew 5:r.3-r5

When my daughter got her first job after college, I handed her a copy of lsaiah 57 so she would always remember she was blessed to have work and that she had a responsibility to care for those who were not as fortunate as she. Without a word, she took the piece of paper, folded it, and put it in her wallet.

A few years later, she hasnt forgotten. When she was looking for

a

position as a lawyer, she sought a firm that would take clients regardless of their ability to pay and that counted hours of volunteer legal (pro bono) counsel in calculating her work hours. I was so proud. lt reminded me that honoring our solidarity with the poor is a lifelong discipline. We've been taught that calling attention to ourselves is a little suspect. Our parents and good friends can call attention to our achievements, but we can't. And yet, to-day's readings include the part of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount that calls us the salt of the earth and the light of the world. This isn't the kind of thing we're sup-posed to hide. But Jesus doesnt mean we should brag or be prideful. Rather, we're to do what lsaiah tells us and honor God by caring for the least among us. We're to follow Paul's example and strive only to "know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified." The example of our lives should be such that those who see us will know God is working through his people. Our love and service to others is not for our glory, but for God's. How doyou let God's glory shine through? M ary Katha ri ne Dee ley

[Sot] *naarian, George,

Lent is later this year, but things are none the less busy as we prepare for this Holy Season. We rejoice in that two of our members have chosen to enter the Catechumenate and have been studying hard and preparing for the Sacraments of the Church. We welcome them in the Rite of Acceptance next week at the 9:3o Mass. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare for the final step on March 9th.

Mass on television instead of skipping Mass altogether, but you're right. Television Masses are a viable option for Catholics who are physically unable to attend Mass, but if your mother is physically able, it's a different matter. There's nothing like "being there" when it comes to worship, and by attending the liturgy with other Catholics every week and on holy days, she'll fulfill her obligation by virtue of baptism in "frlly conscious and active participation" (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy fS atrosanchtm Cowiliuml,l4). Keep encouraging your mom to attend weekly Mass in person, and also encourage her to contact her priest about starting annulment proceedings. If the annulment is granted and her current marriage is conualidated, she'll be able to receive the Eucharist. Receiving Communion may be the privileged encounter with God, but Mass is primarily for worshiping and giving thanks to God. By returning to Mass with other Catholics now and eventually taking Communion, your mom's faith life will clearly be enriched. Fr. Bob Lindsey, CSsR sundaybulletin@liguori.org

$ur [.ady of L*ux'des The sound

of Mary's words at Lourdes had "gone forth to the

ends of the earth." They re-echoed the words of the vicar of her

Divine Son. For she spoke these words l"l om the lmmoculate Conception.') only four years after Pius lX had declared infallibly the dogma of the lmmaculate Conception. "Our speech overflows with joy, ond Our tongue with exultotion.

We give, ond We shall continue to give, the humblest ond deepest thanks to Jesus Christ Our Lord, because through His singulor favor He hos gronted Us, unworthy though We be, to decree, ond offer this honor ond glory ond proise to His Most Holy Mother. All foir ond immoculote, she has crushed the poisonous head of the most cruel serpent and brought salvation to the warld. She rs the proise of the Prophets ond Apostles, the hanar af the Mortyrc, the crown ond joy of all the Soints. She is the sofest refuge ond the most trustworthy helper of oll who ore in donger. "
