    St. Francis of Assisi Staff and Faithful Church Family,

    Words cannot fully express the thankfulness and appreciation in our hearts for all the prayers, love, care, and empathy you have shown us during the loss of our beloved daughter. Your presence during her services was greatly appreciated. All the cards, letters, food, flowers and phone calls to check up on us, along with your hugs and visits were beyond measure. The multiple masses being said throughout the year at St. Francis and the surrounding churches and the perpetual masses are so greatly appreci-ated. We are so blessed to belong to such an amazing and wonderful church family.

    With love and appreciation,

    Larry and Michele Pulec

    Pastors Corner It is very fitting that at the beginning of Lent we hear the basic story of temptation, beginning at creation and up to the time of Jesus. Temptation is what draws us away from God. We live indeed to determine good from evil, and to do good and avoid evil. Satan of course doesnt want to make it easy for us. You notice how conniving he is with Adam and Eve, changes the truth subtly and lies very easily. But temptation isnt what leads to sin, it is our inability to recognize the truth of temptation. The woman saw that the tree was good for food, pleasing to the eye, and desirable for gaining wisdom (Gen. 3:5). Because her desires dimmed her vision, Eve failed to see the truth that, although the fruit looked good, she would have to disobey God if she ate the fruit. That really is the essence of sin for most people. It is our failure to recognize the truth of any temptation because of a greater desire for something else, whether its a good thing that requires us doing something bad to get, or a failure to do something that is hard but good (accepting responsibility for our creative actions). For example, truth tells us that abortion is the killing of a human life, which starts at conception. But our desire to be freed from responsibility for our human sexuality leads us to accept the deadly sin of abortion. We choose to ignore the truth that engaging in the act of creation is designed by nature to result in the conception of a new human life, within the context of a married husband and wife committed to the protection and education of the child. When we clear away the smoke and mirrors Satan creates and look at the issue clearly, we see that as a society we value sexual irresponsibility over human life itself, since we do little to change that value through the political process. Another lie, and this is Satan at his best, is that we have convinced ourselves that the sacrifice (killing) of the human life of the fetus through embryonic stem cell research is necessary in order to possibly cure many devastating diseases. We blind ourselves to the truth because we want the desired results and because we dont have to personally destroy the embryo. Thus, we make ourselves gods with the power of life and death over others. We turn away from God. Let us use this Lent as an opportunity to rededicate ourselves to God and His teachings. Let us ask for the grace to recognize temptation, and the strength to overcome it to serve the Lord with our whole heart, mind and being. Jesus gives us the grace to overcome evil and temptation. Let us accept that grace and reflect Christs light in our lives for all to see! Amen!

    ...but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.

    Catechesis in the Catacombs #5 - Why evangelization is perfect for Lent

    So what are you doing this Lent? Giving up chocolate, certain foods, fasting, or throwing in an extra prayer or rosary? Yes, Yes, they are good things, BUT seriously, are these really penitential acts? Yes, these acts are meant to change oneself, but if you want to seriously change this Lent, then how about sharing the gospel with others.

    Every time I plan to go out and evangelize, I get sick, I get knots in my stomach, and every inch and fiber of me wants to stay home, I am terrified, I want to hide. So why evangelize if I feel so much discomfort? My response is: precisely. It is precisely because I am uncomfortable that I know I am called to do this. No one ever "feels" or is "inspired" to evangelize, but when we love, we are convicted by the Holy Spirit to evangelize, because we genuinely care about other people. And so if you are waiting to be "inspired" to evangel-ize, it will never happen, the devil will not allow it. Christ calls us to love our neighbor, not to always inspire them.

    One reason why we give something up for Lent is to feel discomfort. Every time we are outside our comfort zone, our conscience awakens to what is happening around us and we become more aware of the needs of those around us. Think about it, it's only on days of fasting that we become uncomfortable, and when we are uncomfortable (by being hungry) we become consciously aware how much we appreciate food. Continuing, when we appreciate food, we hopefully begin to appreciate God who provides us with food.

    In our American relativistic culture, the greatest evil is discomfort, and as Catholics living in America we have been influenced by this as well. As Catholics living in America we want a faith that makes us "comfortable". Thankfully we have Lent to remind us that the Catholic Faith is not about comfort, but about love, and love can often feel uncomfortable. That is correct, to love does not always make us feel good, and in fact, to love another person can be quite painful, because of the sacrifices that are needed to be made in order to love.

    One purpose of doing penance is to make us feel discomfort. So ask yourself, what will create the greatest discomfort for you, that you can offer up for the salvation of souls, that will change you the most. From what I hear from most people, the greatest discomfort they have is sharing the gospel with strangers, so what better way to spend Lent then to go outside your comfort zone and share the gospel.

    So my challenge for you this Lent, is pick one person a week to share the gospel message with, and ask the Holy Spirit for guidance in finding that person. It can be a complete stranger, or someone you may have known for a long time. But this Lent give them the greatest gift ever, the knowledge that they were created to be with God for all eternity, and that God has a plan for them.

    Religious Ed. Continued TILLIE & MAIZEY Mmm, Mom was baking bread today. Tillie loved it when Mom made homemade bread, she even liked the crust. Tillie would just eat nothing but bread and butter. Sometimes she sneaked some before dinner. Of course she could never stop with just one piece, so she wouldnt have room for dinner. That was okay, she would just have another piece of bread and butter with some honey.

    RE CHALLENGE: When you have nothing but bread to eat, does that satisfy you?

    There are dozens of instances in the Bible exhorting us to not be afraid. Its about trust; trust God to watch over us, our families and our friends. Jesus wants us to trust and follow him.

    As God made man, He knew what our fear is about, what it feels like. So, He says to us, knowing our fears and anxieties, I am here: Arise and do not be afraid. This years Journey will focus on how Jesus speaks to us in our times of need. Come support, and be supported by other women of faith, to allow the Holy Spirit to transform your

    doubts and anxieties into trust and hope. We welcome you to be on the mountain and feel Gods love, healing and peace!
