FIRST SUNDAY IN LENT - February 17th & 18th

REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READING: Mindful of his covenant, the Lord promises never to destroy creation again by floodwaters.  The waters of baptism bring salvation and forgiveness through the death of Christ.  After fasting forty days and being put to the test, Jesus begins his public ministry.       


ST. JOSEPHS HEALING MINISTRY
    
In addition to the Anointing of the Sick, St. Joseph Church now offers a weekly Healing Ministry. This is a time set aside to bring restoration and wholeness to anyone in need of healing of body, mind, or spirit.    
IMAGO CHRISTI (in the Image of Christ) is an international healing ministry.
Offered every Monday evening at 6:00 pm in the Church

* You are invited to come and pray for healing with us. Group prayer and specific individual healing sessions are available to all.  It is the promise of Jesus that, through Him, we are "to have life and to have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10).  Mark 16:17-18 says "these signs will follow those who believe... they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover!"   This is a special time of grace for individuals, couples, and families to ask Jesus for healing for our needs and supplications.  Let the power of the Holy Spirit fill and restore us with His love!   Whether or not you are seeking personal healing, you are welcome to join our Healing Ministry Team. Please call Alda and Jim St. James for more information at 572-8575.  The flyer for the Healing Ministry is here.

 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"Repent and believe in the Gospel"

What is the significance of Jesus spending 40 days and nights of solitude, prayer and fasting in the Judean wilderness? In the Old Testament 40 days was often seen as a significant period of testing and preparation for entering into a covenant relationship with God. In the days of Noah, God judged the earth and destroyed its inhabitants in a great flood because of their idolatry and total rejection of God. Noah and his family were spared because they obeyed God and took refuge in the ark for 40 days. When the flood subsided God made a covenant with Noah and promised that he would not destroy the human race again. Jesus came to fulfill that promise.

 A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT   In today’s Gospel, Jesus urges his listeners to do two things: to believe in the Good News and to repent. The steward is called to repent: to acquire an openness to begin anew, to change existing attitudes and habits, and to act with faith in the Gospel. In this season of Lent, now is the time to ask ourselves whether or not we truly believe in the Gospel; and if we do.

Living Catholic in the 808
Encounter Christ Within
Reflections by Pope Francis, Reprinted from the CRS Rice Bowl Community Reflections    

“Jesus’ whole life, his way of dealing with the poor, his actions, his integrity, his simple daily acts of generosity, and finally his complete self-giving, is precious and reveals the mystery of his divine life.
Whenever we encounter this anew, we become convinced that it is exactly what others need, even though they may not recognize it: “What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you” (Acts 17:23).
Sometimes we lose our enthusiasm for mission because we forget that the Gospel responds to our deepest needs, since we were created for what the Gospel offers us: friendship with Jesus and love of our brothers and sisters. If we succeed in expressing adequately and with beauty the essential content of the Gospel, surely this message will speak to the deepest yearnings of people’s hearts…” The Joy of the Gospel, 265
Prayer: God of all people, open our eyes this Lent that we may see you at work in our lives and in the lives of those we encounter.
