GOOD NEWS!     Gn 22:1–2, 9a, 10–13, 15–18 / Rom 8:31b–34 / Mk 9:2–10


    The apostle Paul was absolutely certain the love of God would find us no matter what happened and that if we had any role model and ancestor in faith, it was Abraham.

     The stories are familiar. Abraham left his ancestral home to find a land promised him by a God who had only recently revealed himself. Abraham believed a child would come to him and Sarah, though both were old. Finally, he showed he would give everything in obedience to God when he was asked to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac.

     This last story is troublesome to us. Would God require human sacrifice?

    We can understand this as a story of faith in two ways. The traditional interpretation is that God requires everything from us and wants nothing to come between us and our love of God. God’s “test” of Abraham is a test of obedience. Will we give our “all?”

     The second way of seeing the story begins with our understanding that many of the surrounding nations practiced child sacrifice. It may not have been a surprise when God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son, since his neighbors were doing it too. But at the critical moment, when the angel calls out to tell Abraham to stop, he does. The Lord wants a different relationship with his people.

     Abraham’s faith is shown as much in his obedience to the second order as to the first. God doesn’t want us to be just like everyone else. Rather, God wants us as his own people, following the path he carves for us—even if it means going against the tide.

Re: Level 3 Snow Emergency Guidelines for the Diocese of Toledo

On 26 November 2014 the Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas, Bishop of Toledo, accepted the following text as the official policy of the Diocese of Toledo relating to Level 3 Snow Emergencies. This policy is effective immediately.


Whenever a county/city within the Diocese of Toledo is placed under a Level 3 Snow Emergency, during which all roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel, the Catholic Churches within that geographic region will cancel the scheduled Saturday Vigil, Sunday, or Holy Day Masses. Roman Catholics in that region, therefore, are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass. If Masses are cancelled, Catholics are encouraged to participate in Holy Mass via television, radio, or Internet, making a spiritual Communion. When Mass is cancelled, all other diocesan, parish, or school events in that geographic region are also cancelled.

Good Friday is a day of abstinence from meat and also a day of fast. The law of abstinence is binding on all Catholics 14 years of age and older. The law of fasting is binding on all Catholics 18-59. On a fast day, only one full meal may be eaten and eating between meals is forbidden. Together, other meals eaten should not equal more than a full meal. Those who are over 60, the sick, or persons who for other serious reasons should not reduce their food intake, are dispensed from the obligation to fast. In doubt, consult your priest.

Evening of Eucharistic Adoration


On Thursday, March 26th at 7 p.m., there will be a special evening of Eucharistic Adoration at All Saints Church.


The evening will be filled with quiet time in front of the Blessed Sacrament and praise and worship. Please consider joining us for this time of prayer and praise of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Living Stations of the Cross

People of all ages are invited to be a part of our Living Stations of the Cross which will be presented by our parish families this Lent. It is a very prayerful and powerful experience to be part of reenacting the stations of the cross.

The drama will include some acting with statuesque portrayal of each scene with narrators retelling the story, through the eyes of Mary.

Practices will be held on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 pm on March 4th, March 11th, March 18th, and Sunday, March 22nd at All Saints Church in New Riegel. Performances will be held on Friday, March 27th and Sunday, March 29th at 7 pm at All Saints Church in New Riegel.

Fasting Isn’t Just for Lent

News from The United States Bishops Conference: - Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth

The movie Fifty Shades of Grey, was launched in theaters across American on Feburary 13th, 2015. The story is presented as a romance novel but it is far beyond that in content. The theme is that bondage, dominance and sadomasochism are normal and pleasurable. The contrast between the message of Fifty Shades of Grey and God’s design for self-giving and self-sacrificing love, could not be greater. The books and the movie undermine everything we believe as members of a faith community as it negates the gift of sexual intimacy in marriage, the great dignity of women, and the moral reprehensibility of all domestic violence and sexual exploitation.                                                     Click to View Full Letter from USBCC


In stark contrast to this movie is another film, Old Fashioned, also released on Valentines Day weekend. If you want to experience a beautiful and well made film about love and romance, which is also based on Christian values, then please see Old Fashioned.
