FOURTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Come, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
— Psalm 95:6
AUTHORITY FROM GOD
According to Moses, the people decided they didn’t want to hear God’s voice directly any more. It was much too frightening. Why couldn’t God send human teachers, prophets, instead? God agreed, but with a warning. The people had better listen to those teachers, because they spoke in God’s name. That arrangement, though, had its own problems, for them and for us. How do I know this teacher is truly from God? And if the teacher is from God, are all parts of the teaching meant for me? We have the Church and scripture to help us with those questions, but still there are always a few loose ends. That is the powerful significance of the sentence in today’s Gospel: “The people were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes.” The people knew that this Jesus was authentic—truly a teacher sent by God. They knew it by hearing him.

All are invited to attend Way of the Cross on Good Friday. The procession will start from our church and will go through the streets to St. Catherine of Alexandria Church.


ASH WEDNESDAY

On Ash Wednesday we begin the season of Lent, a time of reflection and renewal of our spiritual life. We remind everyone that Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence. That is, anyone between the age of 14 and 60 may eat one full and two light meatless meals. As we enter into these 40 Days of Lent, the Church encourages us to invite others to experience the season in the spirit of Christian joy. Ashes will be distributed only during each Mass (7:30 am; 8:30am; 7:00pm)
