Jesus was led into the desert by the Spirit and was tempted.

(Luke 4:1-13)

First Sunday of Lent February 14, 2016

The word is near you,

in your mouth and in your heart. Romans 10:8


Dear Parishioners,

The entire meaning of the first part of Lent can be well summarized in the command to repent! Repentance not only refers to the those practices which we associate with Lent, namely, prayer, fasting and alms-giving, all of which are important and useful, but more deeply to the re-orientation of our lives. The Trappist monk, Father Tho-mas Keating describes repentance as Jesus call to change the direction in which you are looking for happi-ness. He adds that this implies that we are now looking in the wrong place for happiness, and will never find God in those places. Lent, therefore, is the opportunity to dis-cover the path to true happiness: dedication to the spiri-tual journey.

This Lent, therefore, we ought to ask ourselves hon-estly whether we are on the spiritual journey, or whether we are stuck in harmful and hurtful self-defeating cycles of poor choices and false consciousness. This Sundays Gospel presents Jesus victory over the temptations that manifest our false choices for happiness: the search for security and control, for esteem and prestige, and for pleasure and affection. Notice that none of these things in themselves are bad. We need them and we should enjoy them but in the right measure, which is not possible as long as we have not undertaken the spiritual journey.

Are we on the spiritual journey? Are we willing to rec-ognize the hidden drives for control, prestige and praise that shape our relationships and choices to detriment of all? Are we willing to humble ourselves before the truth that as long as these drives control us, we will fall into cycles of addiction and compulsive behaviors that aim but never succeed in compensating for the fact that we do not ever achieve the security, affection and esteem we desire? As these compulsions are frustrated, they inevitably and easily give rise to the capital sins (i.e., pride, avarice, lust, envy, gluttony, anger, and sloth) that poison our relation-ships.

Lent is the privileged moment not only to ask these tough questions, but also to embrace the chance to address them. Naturally, there are many sound ways to go on the spiritual journey and the Church offers us many possibili-ties. I would like to propose just one about which I have written before and wish to commend to you again: center-ing prayer.

Since the seminar last September, a small but faithful group gathers weekly to support and encourage each other in this practice as a way of going on the spiritual journey. The group now meets at 10 am on Saturdays in the St Theresa Room in the Convent at Saint Patrick. My hope is to be able to sometimes pray with the group whenever my schedule permits.

Cari parrocchiani,

L'intero significato della prima parte della Quaresima pu essere ben sintetizzato nel comando a "pentirsi!" Il pentimento non si riferisce solo quelle pratiche che noi associamo con la Quaresima, vale a dire, la preghiera, il digiuno e l'elemosina, che sono tutti importanti e utili, ma pi profondamente per il riorientamento della nostra vita. Il monaco trappista, Padre Thomas Keating descrive "pentimento" come la chiamata di Ges 'di "cambiare la direzione in cui si cerca la felicit". Egli aggiunge che questo implica che non vediamo l'ora nel posto sbagliato per la felicit, e non potr mai trovare Dio in quei luoghi. Quaresima, quindi, l'occasione per scoprire il cammino della vera felicit: la dedizione al cammino spirituale.

Questa Quaresima, dunque, dobbiamo chiederci onestamente se siamo sul cammino spirituale, o se siamo bloccati in cicli nocivi e dannosi autodistruttivi di scelte sbagliate e di falsa coscienza. Il Vangelo di questa Domenica propone la vittoria di Ges sopra le tentazioni che si manifestano con le nostre false scelte per la felicit: la ricerca di sicurezza e di controllo, per la stima e prestigio, e per piacere e affetto. Notate che nessuna di queste cose in se stesse sono cattive. Abbiamo bisogno di loro e dovremmo goderne, ma nella giusta misura, che non possibile fino a quando non abbiamo intrapreso il cammino spirituale.

Siamo sul cammino spirituale? Siamo disposti a riconoscere le compulsioni nascosti per il controllo, il prestigio e la lode che plasmano i nostri rapporti e le scelte a discapito di tutti? Siamo disposti a umiliarci davanti alla verit che finch queste compulsioni ci controllano, cadremo in cicli di dipendenza e comportamenti compulsivi che mirano, ma non riusciranno mai, a compensare il fatto che non abbiamo mai raggiunto la sicurezza, affetto e stima che desideriamo? Poich queste compulsioni sono frustrate, inevitabilmente e facilmente causano i peccati capitali (vale a dire, l'orgoglio, l'avarizia, lussuria, invidia, gola, ira e accidia) che avvelenano i rapporti umani.

La Quaresima il momento privilegiato non solo per chiedere queste domande difficili, ma anche di abbracciare la possibilit di affrontarle. Naturalmente, ci sono molti modi sani per andare sul cammino spirituale e la Chiesa ci offre molte possibilit. Vorrei proporre una sola di cui ho scritto prima e desidero di raccomandare a voi ancora una volta: la preghiera di centratura (che si pu fare senza parlare una parola dinglese!).

Da quando il seminario lo scorso settembre, un piccolo ma fedele gruppo si riunisce ogni settimana per sostenere e incoraggiare l'un l'altro in questa pratica come un modo di andare sul cammino spirituale. Il gruppo si riunisce adesso alle ore 10 di sabato nella sala di S. Teresa nel convento di San Patrizio. La mia speranza di poter pregare a volte con il gruppo ogni volta che il mio programma lo permette.

Let us pray for the intentions of our Holy Father during the month of February.....

Universal Intention: That we may take good care of creation - a gift freely given - cultivating and protecting it for future generations.. For Evangelization Intention: That opportunities may increase for dialogue ad encounter between the Christian faith and the peoples of Asia.

Saturday: 3:00pm - 3:45pm

Bulletin Reflection Todays first reading describes the offering of first fruits the people of Israel were to present to the Lord in thanksgiving for their deliverance from Egypt and the gift of the promised land. Is my offering at todays Mass an appropriate response to the many blessings the Lord has given me?

Living Stewardship We are grateful this week for all stewards in our parish who share their first fruits by practicing a corporal work of mercy - welcoming the stranger - by extending invitation, hospitality and inclusion to the newest members of our parish community.

The regular collection on 2/7/2016 was $3,449.00. The second collection for Maintenance & Repair was $1,463. 00. May God bless you for your continued support and generosity.

Thank you, Fr. Elias


The Canonry of Saint Leopold Vatican Two (Re)views

2/16 No meeting Winter Recess

Centering prayer is a classical Christian spiritual practice that emphasizes the purification of intention. As one starts, one consents to the presence and action of the Holy Spirit, whom we have all received in Baptism and Confirmation. Then one introduces a sacred word as a symbol and sign of ones inten-tion to belong completely to God. The sacred word is not im-portant in itself. It is merely a way of reaffirming ones inten-tion to consent to the presence and action of the Holy Spirit, who is healing us and making us whole/holy (which is what salvation means).

The prayer lasts from fifteen to thirty minutes depending on ones capacity. When one first starts, fifteen minutes will seem very long! During the prayer, one learns not to worry about thoughts, feelings, images, etc. because this is not Eastern me-diation that seeks to quiet the mind. Whereas those forms of meditation focus on the attention whereas centering prayer since it a prayer and not meditation per se is focused on inten-tion, on my intention to belong wholly to the God, who has re-vealed Himself in and through Jesus, His Son, and through their Spirit.

Its Lent! Its time for all of us to repent. Our Lord urges us to change the direction in which we are looking for happiness. Perhaps you too will find that Centering Prayer is a great way to do this.

God bless, Father Elias

La preghiera di centratura una pratica spirituale cristiana classica che enfatizza la purificazione delle intenzioni. Per iniziare, acconsente alla presenza e l'azione dello Spirito Santo, che noi tutti abbiamo ricevuto nel Battesimo e nella Cresima. Avanti introduci una parola sacra come un simbolo e segno della tua intenzione di appartenere completamente a Dio. La parola sacra non importante in s. Si tratta semplicemente di un modo di riaffermare l'intenzione di acconsentire alla presenza e l'azione dello Spirito Santo, che ti guarisce e ti fa intero / santo (che ci che la salvezza significa).

La preghiera dura da quindici a trenta minuti secondo la propria capacit. Al primo avvio della pratica, un quarto d'ora pu sembrare molto lungo! Durante la preghiera, si impara a non preoccuparsi di pensieri, sentimenti, immagini, ecc. perch questa non la mediazione orientale che cerca di calmare la mente. Considerando che tali forme della meditazione mettono a fuoco attenzione, la preghiera di centratura - perch una preghiera, e non meditazione di per s - focalizzata sullintenzione, sulla mia intenzione di appartenere totalmente al Dio, che si rivelato in e attraverso Ges, Suo Figlio, e attraverso il loro spirito.

Quaresima! il momento per tutti noi di pentirsi. Il Signore ci spinge a cambiare la direzione in cui si cerca la felicit. Forse anche voi troverete che la preghiera di centratura un ottimo modo per fare questo.

Dio vi benedica, Padre Elias
