SEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

TODAY’S FOCUS – Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time: God is merciful and desires to pour forth this mercy upon our lives. We only need to come to Him through His Son Jesus. We know that Jesus healed body, mind and soul as He forgave sins. He has empowered and commanded the Church to continue this ministry of healing and forgiveness. We only need to say Yes to His offer.

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION

The sacrament of Penance is a sacra- ment of healing. Through Isaiah God revealed that though He chose the na- tion of Israel to be His own, Israel kept sinning and turning from Him. God’s message is that he will wipe out the offenses and remember them no more. In the gospel Jesus, too, chooses to for- give sins when he is given the oppor-

tunity. When Jesus heals the body of the paralytic, he also heals his soul by forgiving his sins. As we pray each time we sat the Lord’s Prayer, may we be forgiven in the same way we forgive others.

Deadline for signing up for Pass- over at Our Lady of Lourdes. The Passover is on Sunday, March 4 th , 6:30-8:15 p.m. at the parish hall. The deadline for registra- tion is Ash Wednesday (Feb. 22 nd ). Jesus, the Lamb of God, celebrated the Last Supper at Passover time. Participating in a Seder/Passover liturgy [complete with the ritual foods, lamb and four small cups of wine or grape juice] helps understand the background to the institution of the Eucharist which we Catholics celebrate on Holy Thursday. The Passover meal will include a drink, lamb, potatoes and gravy, a salad, the choice of apple or chocolate pie, and humus with pita bread. Some of the youth of the parish will help make the occasion festive with a traditional Jewish dance. The do- nation for adults will be $10 per person for adults and $6 for chil- dren under 12; payment is ex- pected at the time you register. To register, please contact the par- ish office or contact Gary or Fran McGrath , 620-231-5410.

Parish Concert—Today This Sunday there will be a Holy Hour and a concert with Catholic recording artist Michael John Poirier, @ 4:00

p.m. in the church. Michael has re- ceived the “Best Devotional Album” award by the United Catholic Music and Video Association. The focus of his music, some traditional and some self- written, is the Eucharist, Mary, uncondi- tional love, and God’s call in each of our lives. There is no cost for this pro- gram.

ASH WEDNESDAY IS THIS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND

LENTEN FASTING & ABSTINENCE REGULATIONS

The Catholic Church cannons regarding fasting and abstinence:

Fasting The law of fasting requires a Catholic from the age of 18th to 59 to forgo the normal amount of food eaten. The Church defines this as one

normal meal a day, and two smaller meals which together would not ex- ceed the main meal. Such fasting is obligatory on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The fast is broken by eating between meals and by drinks which could be considered food. Abstinence The law of abstinence requires a Catholic 14 years of age until death to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday and Fridays of Lent in honor of the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday.
