GOOD NEWS!        Mk 11:1–10 or Jn 12:12–16 / Is 50:4–7 / Phil 2:6–11/Mk 14:1—15:47 or 15:1–39

    Traditions help us order the world and mark the passing of time. As my children grew up, we marked our entry into the Christmas season by decorating the Christmas tree, reading the Dylan Thomas classic A Child’s Christmas in Wales , and singing the choral parts of Handel’s Messiah .

    Most people are familiar with Handel’s masterpiece, but not many know it was composed as an Easter—not Christmas— oratorio. If we listen to the whole thing, we hear the familiar prophecies of Isaiah and Paul’s triumphant cry, “O Death, where is thy sting?” The glorious “Hallelujah Chorus” announces the triumphant reign of the risen Christ.

    Every year on Palm Sunday and Good Friday, for much longer than our traditions have held sway, the Church has told the story of the passion and death of Jesus. This story marks our entrance into the faith of the Church and orders our sacred time.

    It’s the story of a death that leads to life—both the resurrected life of Jesus, which we celebrate next week, and the eternal life that’s ours if we follow him.

    In Mark’s telling of the story, we encounter the woman who anointed Jesus and the young man who ran away when Jesus was arrested.

    Each gospel writer gives us a slightly different version of the story, and each writer adds to our perspective and our understanding that this man and this death weren’t like any other. This Jesus was God, who emptied himself so we might live.

    Surely that’s worth singing about.

Good News !!!!!!!



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.

Living 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. This movie trailer many be viewed at their website: www.oldfashionedmovie.com
