FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK
1. The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are Ash Wednesday (February 18) and Good Friday (April 3).
If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday Night) as the “paschal feast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate more readily his Resurrection. The other Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence.
∎On a day of Fast, only one (1) full meal is permitted, and two (2) smaller meals, which, if added together, would not exceed the main meal in quantity. Those between the ages of 18—59 are obliged to fast.
∎On a day of Abstinence, no meat may be eaten. Those who have reached the age of 14 are obliged by the Law of Abstinence.
2. The obligation to observe the laws of Fast and Abstinence, “substantially,” or as a whole, is a serious obligation.
3. The Fridays of the year, outside of Lent are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self-denial as penance.
The Code of Canon Law allows a pastor to dispense an individual from the specified obligations for a just cause . If you have any questions regarding eating meat on Friday, contact your pastor.
4. The time for fulfilling the Paschal Precept (Easter Duty*) extends from the First Sunday of Lent, February 22, 2015, to The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, May 31, 2015.
*All the faithful, after they have been initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, are bound by the obligation of receiving Holy Communion at least once a year.

SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME ~ FEBRUARY 15, 2015
When the Austrian Augustinian monk Pius Parsch (1884-1954) was ordained a priest, he used gifts of money he received on that occasion
to buy a nine-volume set of books on the liturgy. He didn’t use them to decorate his bookshelves but to spark energetic and creative initiatives in his pastoral care, ones that have greatly influenced our own times. After obtaining a doctorate in theology, he taught novices at the monastery of Klosterneuburg near Vienna, where he belonged for his remaining years. From this spiritual base his many accomplishments included:
∎ the invention of the modern misalette, which he originally devised during his time as a chaplain to Austrian army troops during World War I to instruct them on the meaning of the Mass.
∎ the organizing of study groups for ordinary Catholics on the Bible and on the liturgy. (Father Parsch had chosen his religious name of Pius out of admiration for Pope St. Pius X, who had a great love of Scripture.)
∎ the introduction of the people’s sung participation at the “Kyrie,” the “Holy, Holy,” and the “Lamb of God.”
∎ the use of German for the readings proclaimed at Mass. (He would have lectors read out loud while the priest read the official Latin texts s
