FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT FEBRUARY 26, 2012

VOL. LXIII NO. 9

This Weekend 2012 Combined Diocesan Collection for the Black and Native American and Latin American Missions

A POWERFUL PROCLAMATION As we reflect on how we spend our time, we could well ask ourselves, “What would you want to be caught dead doing?” If we take seriously Jesus’ Gospel proclamation, if we chew on the words until they become part of us, we will find our answer. After coming out of the desert and learning of John’s arrest, Jesus knew it was time to act. Forty days of prayer and fasting had prepared him well. He knew exactly what he wanted to be caught dead doing. His desert experience had prepared him. Fully aware that his actions would put his life in jeopardy, he went to Galilee, where he made the powerful proclamation found in today’s Gospel. “THIS IS THE TIME OF FULFILLMENT” This is the time. Not tomorrow, or after Lent, or after you finish your degree, or after you feel a little better about yourself, or after you retire. This is the time and the place. Here, today, this minute, now. By your baptism, you are fulfilled. All you need to do is realize it. “The kingdom of God is at hand.” It is in the present moment, mirrored back to us many times each day. It is everywhere, even in the darkest corners of the world. To gain access to the kingdom, we just give ourselves to Jesus each morning, and examine ourselves in light of his love each evening. Submit and commit—day after day. “Repent, and believe in the gospel.” For those preparing for full Church membership this Lent, today’s message is especially liberating. When we drop our own agendas and tune in to God’s, miracles begin to happen. And if angels ministered to Jesus in the desert, we know that they will be there for us, too. So as we begin our Lenten observances, let’s listen openly and trustingly to the still small Voice whispering in the silence of the season and then pray for the courage to believe and act on what we hear. We will be changed, and the world along with us.

We ask your continued support in the Diocesan Collection on February 25/26 for Black, Native American & Latin American Missions. In 2011, the Diocese of Albany received a grant of over $ 40,000 for its evangelization efforts with minority populations. Funds from this collection support a range of pastoral projects and are used to help rebuild the Church of Latin America and the Caribbean where natural disasters have devastated it in areas like Haiti, as well as improve catechesis, education and priesthood formation. *************************************************** RCIA Rite of Sending As we enter the Lenten Season please pray for our Catechumen and Candidates as they prepare to join us in Full Communion at the Easter Vigil. They will be joining others from across the Diocese on Sunday, February 26th at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception for the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion. We will celebrate the Rite of Sending Forth at St. Pius X during the 10:00 am Mass on February 26. This year we have one Catechumen, Alan Joseph and two Candidates, Anne Jung and Eric Kim who will enter into full Communion with our family of faith at the Easter Vigil.

In short, we are asking you to acknowledge women in your community whom you would like to see recognized for answering God’s call to service in their Parish community. Deadline for the receipt of nomination forms is Friday, March 16, 2012. All women nominated will receive a personal invitation to the March 25th prayer service where they will be recognized and honored by Bishop Hubbard and the Women’s Commission.

PASTORAL CARE “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe in the gospel.” + Today the church speaks a message of reconciliation through the readings. In Genesis, through Noah the Father offers us another chance to be His people. A reminder of His covenant forever appears throughout creation. What kind of covenant have you made with God? In Mark Jesus proclaims the time has come to live out our part of this covenant. We must repent and believe. This truth completely affects the way we live. This Lent, are you ready for a change? St. Peter brings the point home when he speaks of Christ’s redeeming act, the gift of salvation. It is Jesus who ultimately leads us to God for total and complete reconciliation. Are you willing to do your part? The journey of Lent calls us to renew our pledge to God. Like Jesus in the desert, for forty days, we have the opportunity to grow more deeply prayerful and strengthen our resolve to do God’s will. It is time to begin the hard work of Lent! Don’t put it off! Start today, this very minute. The Lord wants to draw you close. He has need of you.

Our Women’s Scripture Study/Faith Sharing Group will meet again on Wednesday February 29th, 2012. We will view and discuss the last session of Fr. Robert Barron’s amazing Catholicism Series. The focus is on “World Without End: The Last Things”. In the following weeks we will explore women of the bible. If you are interested in joining us on Wednesdays from 10 to 11:30, please call the Pastoral Care Office at 462-1336. Women Bible Study Lenten Project: We are collecting brightly colored scarves to send on to the abused and violated women of the Congo via Marian Hamwey, DC and the Diocesan Commission on Peace and Justice . The scarves are a sign of our encouragement and care for the self-esteem of women who have been raped and tortured. (See Evangelist Article 2/2/2012) They can be delivered to the Pastoral Care Office, if you would like to participate. For more information call Jeanne Pitkin at 462-1336.

GOOD NEWS: Thank you to Mrs. Jeanne Cox’s fourth grade class at St. Pius X School who decorated clay pots filled with Valentine hearts. The St. Pius X Bereavement Committee used them for our Winter Warmth, Valentine’s Day Meal to give a festive touch to the tables.

Family Perspectives by Bud Ozar: Jesus went into the desert to put his life in perspective. This lent, take a fresh look at a difficult relationship in your life. Concentrate on the positive things that person does, not just the negatives. Try to understand why their behaviors ‘bug’ you. Can you honestly share your feelings with them without attacking them? Make Lent a time to MEND and FORGIVE! *************************************************** We respectfully remind everyone to observe the No parking areas on the parish grounds.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE COIN DRIVE The St. Pius X Orphanage Committee is sponsoring an upcoming Coin Drive to raise money for the St. Francis Xavier Orphanage in Haiti. We are hoping to get as many of our parish families as possible involved in this fundraiser. As the Lenten Season approaches, its never too early to start thinking about our Lenten offerings. Similar to the concept of a rice bowl, the committee will be handing out coin containers the weekend of February 1112 after all masses. Considering the average Haitian family lives on less than two dollars a day, your spare change will go a long way. The Coin Drive will end on April 1st when families will be able to return their coin containers after masses. Parishioners will also have the opportunity to help count the change down in the parish center at 11am on Sunday, April 1st. We hope that parishioners and families of all ages will be able to join us for this intergenerational event! *************************************************** There are extra containers available at each of the church entrances for our "CHANGE FOR CHANGE" coin drive. Containers are due back at masses the weekend of March 31st- April 1st. Please consider joining us on Sunday, April 1st at 11:00am in the parish center to help us sort and count the change. Thank you for your wonderful support of the St. Francis Xavier Orphanage in Haiti. Please call Gayle Bouchard at 436-0585 if you have any questions. *************************************************** HISTORY OF SALVATION The first reading today continues the “history of salvation” narrative that we hear throughout Lent this year. Today’s story was among the best-loved in the Jewish tradition (surely Joseph told the story to young Jesus as he formed him in the ways of their faith); the early fathers of the Church were very fond of it as a means of explaining the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. The overall tone of the first reading, psalm, and second reading seems a little incongruous with the dazzling Gospel, until we remember that the Transfiguration was placed as the Gospel for this Sunday precisely to remind us of the glory that awaits those who live faithfully and obediently to the will of God. In the life of Jesus, it is a preview of the glory of his resurrection; for us it is a glimpse of the destiny of those who continue, as we heard in last week’s Gospel, to repent and believe in the Good News.
