LENTEN REGULATIONS

 Ash Wednesday and Good Friday remain days of fast and abstinence. Abstinence is also to be observed on the  Fridays of Lent.

FASTING is required of all the faithful in good health         between the ages of 18 and 59.

Fasting usually is interpreted to mean one full meal and, if necessary, two other small meals. One should not eat            between meals, but milk, fruit juices and other liquids are     permitted.

ABSTINENCE means no meat should be eaten during the    entire day.  All persons are required to abstain from their 14th birthday.

Anyone unable to observe the fast or abstinence obligations because of health or other serious reasons should consider   substituting another penance.


 

TORNADO  RESPONSE: St. Patrick Parish is ready to aid the victims of the multiple tornadoes on March 03, 2019.

LITURGY and  Flu Virus

 

        Each week, we gather together to celebrate and share the Eucharist.  We do not want this to be an occasion to “share” the flu virus.  What  can we do?

         First, we should take the normal precautions: good      hygiene, washing our hands regularly, staying home if we are feeling sick.

         Here are some things that we can do at church: 

  • Disinfectant will be available at the church door  to wash our hands;
  • the Ministers of the Eucharist will disinfect their hands before distribution of Holy Communion;
  • we will still provide the Precious Blood in the chalice — please do not receive from the cup if you are coughing, sneezing or feel ill;
  • at the Sign of Peace, we normally shake hands.  If you want to vary the way you “offer one another a sign of peace” to a bow, a nod, or a smile, that is okay.  We certainly can acknowledge each other without touching.

Gospel Glimpses 

 

 

 What a Friend 

We Have in Jesus

 

When Jesus enters our picture, God enters our picture. God loves all of the world's people and is open to hear the prayers of everyone, regardless of their faith. However, the followers of Christ have a special way of understanding what God is like, and that makes it all easier. Through Jesus we see God as one who comes near to us and who is aware of our human needs, even when they   involve suffering. Jesus becomes both Savior and friend.

 

Jesus lived the life we know, both joys and sorrows. He felt frustration, when people were slow to grasp the full meaning of his message. For example, his own disciples saw Jesus as a potential earthly ruler, rather than one who pointed to the rule of God. Jesus, like all human beings, got tired and had to take time out to rest and nurture his own vision. He demonstrated God's love in action, as he forgave a sinner, enabled the blind to see and empowered people to become free of the demonic forces that afflicted them.

 

If we want the season of Lent to be a time when God enters our own life picture more fully, getting to know and understand the nature of Jesus is a major help. What does Jesus mean, when he speaks of blessings for the meek, the merciful, the pure in heart and the peacemakers? These qualities draw us nearer to God, for God is merciful and pure and a giver of peace. Jesus helps us to know God and to see how we can reflect God's Spirit. We can become healers, enablers and examples of God's love, as he did. In the process, God comes near and lives within us.

"The family idea is dear to God and to the Church ... I declare that I recognize the value of a family spirit, of a family working in the Church, of a family that with ardor will take these words from our dear Lord’s lips: ‘Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'"

 

- Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge,  Founder of St. Patrick School and 3rd Pastor of St. Patrick Church


 

 

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

                                

                                                                         JN 3:16-18
