In today’s scriptures we hear three instances of people receiving and responding to a call from God. These accounts follow the pattern of most scriptural call narratives: a divine presence appears and speaks; the person expresses fear or unworthiness, receives encouragement, and finally responds to God’s call. Today’s first reading shows an unworthy Isaiah responding to the Lord’s call, “Here I am; send me!” (Isaiah 6:8). In the second reading Paul tells us that, even though he had persecuted the church, he was called to be an apostle. In the Gospel, despite Simon Peter’s protest that he is a sinner, Jesus calls James, John, and Simon to follow him. They leave everything they have and follow Jesus—that is, they become Jesus’ disciples. These scriptures can challenge us to take stock of our lives. How do we experience Jesus’ call to discipleship in our lives? How well and faithfully are we responding?

En las lecturas de hoy podemos oír tres ocasiones en que algunas personas reciben y responden a un llamado de Dios. Estos relatos siguen el patrón de la mayoría de los relatos de llamados: una presencia divina aparece y habla; la persona expresa temor o no ser digna, recibe aliento, y finalmente responde al llamado de Dios. La primer lectura de hoy muestra a un indigno Isaías respondiendo al llamado de Dios: “Aquí estoy, Señor, envíame” (Isaías 6:8). En la segunda lectura Pablo nos dice que, aunque había perseguido a la Iglesia, fue llamado a ser apóstol. En el Evangelio, a pesar de la protesta de Simón Pedro de que es pecador, Jesús llama a Santiago, a Juan y a Simón para que lo sigan. Dejan todo lo que poseen y siguen a Jesús —es decir, se convierten en discípulos de Jesús. Estas lecturas bíblicas desafían a evaluar nuestras vidas. ¿Cómo sentimos en nuestras vidas el llamado de Jesús a ser discípulos? ¿Estamos respondiendo bien y con fidelidad?

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote

With the theme “Open Wide the Doors of Faith,” our Reno Annual Bishop’s Appeal has begun. This diocesan wide fundraising endeavor of our 29 parishes of this diocese helps support the many outreach ministries and social services in Northern Nevada. The ever growing numbers of those faced with challenges to provide basic necessities is overwhelming. Our parish assessment this year is $76,263.00. This figure is determined by a rather interesting formula: the ordinary income from our collections for the past three years is divided by the ordinary income of all 29 parishes of the diocese for the past 3 years, which determines the percentage of each parish goal. I want to thank George and Carol Del Carlo for accepting the invitation to serve as our co-chairs for our CSA (Catholic Service Appeal) this year. Last week they mailed out a letter and your CSA form. If you did not receive it, and wish to support this worthy cause, please call the parish office and we will mail the CSA form and letter to you. I also am most grateful to those of you who have and will support the Bishop’s Appeal. Your sacrificial gift whether large or small will assist the Bishop in reaching out to others. Many thanks. Lent begins this coming Wednesday, February 13th. This penitential season offers us a very special opportunity to grow in our relationship with God and to deepen our commitment to a way of life rooted in prayer, fasting/abstinence and almsgiving. As a child, Lent was always about “What are you giving up for Lent?” As adults, we recognize the real grace from Lent is the opportunity to transform our hearts. Begin with this simple question: “What is God inviting me to change this Lent?” Each of us can immediately think of something that gets in the way of our being loving and selfsacrificing. Too often the ordinary conflicts, divisions, and difficulties in our family life are the result of simple selfishness on our part. For example, I may choose to stubbornly defend my opinion and not listen to another family member; or choose to intentionally hurt another; or maybe choose to hold on to wounds or resentments from the past. Lent is a great time to start a new pattern of prayer. One suggestion could be to use your prayer time to listen to God without other distractions. It may be a simple change, but it so important to have a listening heart, rather than always asking. Lent is a great time to change our eating patterns by fasting (eating only one full meal) or abstaining (no meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent). Fasting and abstaining also help us identify and be in greater solidarity with the poor of the world, who live on less than a dollar a day. What a great cure for sitting on the pity-pot. Lent is a great time to practice generosity or almsgiving. This is not just giving from my excess, but giving from my substance. Giving from your substance, is giving when it makes you change your lifestyle. Generosity is an attitude. It is stewardship; that is, it is admission that no matter how much I have, all that I have, is a gift from God and it is given to me to share with others. During our Lenten communal journey, the Lord calls to us: “Come back to me with all of your heart.” Wishing you a blessed Lent and a Happy Valentines’ Day… Fr. Bill Pg. 6

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote Con el tema ""abrir de par en par las puertas de la fe", nuestro Obispo de Reno ha comenzado la Apelación anual. Esta recaudación diocesano es el esfuerzo de nuestras 29 parroquias de la diócesis que ayudan y apoyan la extensión de muchos ministerios y servicios sociales en el norte de Nevada. El número creciente de los abrumados problemas para satisfacer las necesidades básicas e son abrumadores. A valuación de nuestra parroquia este año es de $76.263,00. Esta cifra es determinada por una fórmula bastante interesante: los ingresos ordinarios por nosotros para los últimos tres años se van a dividir por cada una de las 29 parroquias de la diócesis durante los últimos 3 años, que determina el porcentaje de cada objetivo de la parroquia . Quiero darles las gracias a George y Carol Del Carlo por aceptar la invitación a servir como nuestros co-presidentes de nuestra SCA (Servicio Católica de apelación) este año. La semana pasada llego por correo una carta SCA. Si usted no la ha recibido, y desea de apoyar esta noble causa, por favor llame a la oficina de la parroquia y le enviaremos por correo el formulario SCA a usted. Yo también estoy muy agradecido a aquellos de ustedes que tienen y tendrán apoyo del obispo de apelación. Su regalo de sacrificio ya sea grande o pequeño ayudará al Obispo a hacer llegar a los demás. Muchas gracias. La Cuaresma empieza el próximo miércoles, 13 febrero. Este tiempo penitencial nos ofrece una oportunidad muy especial para crecer en nuestra relación con Dios y profundizar nuestro compromiso con una forma de vida arraigada en la oración, el ayuno y abstinencia y la limosna. Como un niño, la Cuaresma siempre se trataba de " ¿Voy a dar lo máximo para la Cuaresma?" Como adultos, debemos reconocer la verdadera gracia de la Cuaresma, es una oportunidad para transformar nuestros corazones. Comenzar con esta simple pregunta: " ¿Dios me invita a cambiar en esta Cuaresma?" Cada uno de nosotros perdemos inmediatamente pensar en algo que se interpone en el camino de nuestro ser amado y abnegado. A menudo son demasiados los conflictos normales, las divisiones y las dificultades en nuestra vida familiar son el resultado de un simple egoísmo de mi parte. Puedo elegir o defender obstinadamente mi opinión y no escuchar a otro miembro de la familia. O quizás a elegir intencionalmente a lastimar a otro. O quizás yo elija aferrarme a heridas o resentimientos del pasado. La Cuaresma es un excelente momento para comenzar un nuevo patrón de oración. Les sugiero, utilizar su tiempo de oración, en un momento para escuchar a Dios. Puede ser un simple cambio, pero es tan importante para tener un corazón que escuche, en lugar de siempre estar pidiendo. La Cuaresma es un tiempo estupendo para cambiar nuestros hábitos alimenticios por el ayuno (comer sólo una comida completa) o abstenciones (sin carne el Miércoles de Ceniza, el Viernes Santo y todos los viernes de cuaresma). El ayuno y la abstinencia también nos ayudará a identificar y estar en una mayor solidaridad con los pobres del mundo, que viven con menos de un dólar al día. Que gran pena seria sentarnos en la lastima. La Cuaresma es un tiempo estupendo para practicar la generosidad o la limosna. Esto no sólo es dar de mi exceso, pero dando desde mi esencia. Dar desde la esencia, es cuando hacemos cambiar el estilo de vida. Generosidad es una actitud. Es administración; es decir, es admitir que no importa lo mucho que tengo, todo lo que tengo es un don de Dios y es que se me ha dado para compartir con los demás. Durante la Cuaresma recorreremos nuestro camino cuaresmal, el Señor nos llama a: "Volved a mí con todo tu corazón." Los bendigo en esta Cuaresma y les deseo un feliz Día de San Valentín… El P. Bill Pg. 7

Issues of Peace and Justice Our readings today speak of God’s initiating forgiveness and calling into service – of Isaiah, of Paul, and of the fishermen apostles. We believe, of course, that these are some of the examples of God’s callings and that God also calls each of us. To what, though, are we called? The Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church tells us that “making this [social] doctrine known constitutes a genuine pastoral priority, so that men and women will be enlightened by it and will be thus enabled to interpret today’s reality and seek appropriate paths of action: ‘The teaching and spreading of her social doctrine are part of the Church's evangelizing mission’ (Pope John Paul II).” “The Church's social doctrine ‘is itself a valid instrument of evangelization’ and is born of the always new meeting of the Gospel message and social life. Understood in this way, this social doctrine is a distinctive way for the Church to carry out her ministry of the Word and her prophetic role. ‘In effect, to teach and to spread her social doctrine pertains to the Church's evangelizing mission and is an essential part of the Christian message, since this doctrine points out the direct consequences of that message in the life of society and situates daily work and struggles for justice in the context of bearing witness to Christ the Savior.’ This is not a marginal interest or activity, or one that is tacked on to the Church's mission, rather it is at the very heart of the Church's ministry of service: with her social doctrine the Church ‘proclaims God and his mystery of salvation in Christ to every human being, and for that very reason reveals man to himself’” (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, #7 & #67).

Our Liturgical Season / Nuestro Tiempo Litúrgico FASTING AND ABSTINENCE The Catholic Church requires its members to observe certain dietary rules—fasting and abstinence—to recognize and mark the importance of particular days during its liturgical year, as well as to express penance for personal sin. The regulations apply as follows:

 Generally,

the laws of fasting require that on the designated days the person eat just one full meal and two smaller meals, and avoid eating between meals. Abstinence laws require that the person avoid meat altogether.  The

regulations governing abstinence from meat apply to all Catholics age fourteen and older. Adults who have completed their eighteenth year until the beginning of their sixtieth year are bound by the regulations that govern fasting. Pregnant women and sick people are excused from the regulations.  Ash

Wednesday and Good Friday are days of both fasting and abstinence; all the other Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence only.  In

addition, the Church encourages its adult members to observe some form of penance, perhaps including some kind of fast and abstinence, on all Fridays throughout the year.  The

Church also calls for fasting prior to receiving Communion during the Mass. In this case, the fast helps us prepare our minds and hearts for the great gift of the Eucharist by doing something physical to help focus our attention. Church law calls for us to avoid all food and drink, with the exception of water and medicine, for one hour before receiving Communion. Again, this regulation does not apply to sick people or others for whom such restrictions would jeopardize health.

Pg. 10

Our Liturgical Season / Nuestro Tiempo Litúrgico AYUNO Y ABSTINENCIA La Iglesia católica necesita que sus miembros cumplen con ciertas reglas dietéticas de ayuno y abstinencia a reconocer y marcar la importancia de ciertos días durante El año litúrgico, así como hacer penitencia por los pecados personales. Los reglamentos se aplican de la siguiente manera:

Las reglas del ayuno en general exigen que en los días designados la persona coma una comida completa y dos comidas más pequeñas, y evitar comer entre comidas. La abstinencia son leyes que requieren que la persona evite comer carne por completo.

Las normas que rigen la abstinencia de carne son aplicables a todos los católicos desde los catorce años de edad. Los adultos que han cumplido sus 18 años hasta 60 años están obligados a cumplir las reglas del ayuno. Las mujeres embarazadas y los enfermos quedan dispensados de las reglas.

El Miércoles de Ceniza y el viernes son días de ayuno y abstinencia; todos los demás viernes de Cuaresma son días de abstinencia solamente.

Por otra parte, la Iglesia alienta a sus miembros adultos a observar alguna forma de penitencia, incluyendo tal vez algún tipo de ayuno y la abstinencia, todos los viernes durante todo el año.

La Iglesia pide también el ayuno antes de recibir la Comunión durante la misa. En este caso, el ayuno nos ayuda a preparar la mente y el corazón para recibir el gran regalo de la Eucaristía también hacer algo físico para ayudar a centrar nuestra atención. La ley de la Iglesia nos pide evitar todos los alimentos y bebidas, con la excepción de la agua y la medicina, una hora antes de recibir la Comunión. Una vez más, este reglamento no se aplicará a personas enfermas o a otros los cuales estas restricciones serían peligrosas para la salud.
