2 Page 1 Third Sunday of Lent March 03, 2013 MY DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS, ast Monday morning, I presided at a Votive Mass for Pope Benedict XVI in our church, an offering which was highly endorsed by the USCCB and our Diocese. I celebrated it on behalf of all of you, the faithful of Resurrection Parish. We prayed for God's continued blessings for the Holy Father as the culmination of his pontificate approached. We will remember him as the Pope who showed so much love for God, the Holy Mother Church and her teachings. We witnessed the orthodoxy of his theology and his fidelity to Catholic doctrines. Sadly, his physical condition and health issues have made him decide to pass the leadership on to somebody who will continue to feed the flock, as instructed by the Lord Jesus. He will still be addressed as His Holiness, and will have the title Pope Emeritus. Although it has gradually started to sink in, most of us still feel the shock brought on by this event. If it is a consolation, we have to understand that Canon Law DOES NOT prohibit resignation by a Pope. Canon 332 paragraph 2 states that If it happens that the Roman Pontiff resigns his office, it is required for validity that the resignation is made freely and properly manifested but not that it is accepted by anyone. We know that Pope Benedict XVI is not the first one to resign from office. History tells us that the following Popes resigned from the papacy because of different reasons, to wit: 1. Pope Pontian resigned in 235 AD after having been arrested and deported to Sardina, as part of Emperor Maximinus Thrax's persecution. The Pope resigned to allow an orderly succession in Rome during a lull in the imperial crackdown. He and his successor were later on martyred. 2. Pope Marcellinus resigned in the year 304 AD when he succumbed to the harsh persecution by Diocletian. He was forced to surrender copies of the Sacred Scriptures and to burn incense to pagan gods. 3. Pope Silverius resigned in 537 AD. He was coerced to abdicate office to legitimize the papacy of his successor Pope Vigilius. 4. Pope Martin I was forced to resign in 655 AD. He was exiled by Emperor Constans II to Crimea. 5. Pope John XVIII was thought to have abdicated the papacy in 1009, shortly before his death, to spend his last days as a monk at the monastery of Rome's San Paolo Fuori le Mura (Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls). 6. Pope Benedict IX fled Rome in the year 1044 to escape unrest by the locals at his papacy who w e r e not happy about his desire to marry. Then he made a deed handing the papacy over to his godfather, John Gratian who became Pope Gregory VI (reputedly in exchange for some 1,450 pounds of gold). 7. Pope Celestine V resigned in the year He was a hermit who was elected Pope at the age of 80 and was overwhelmed by the responsibilities of the office. He hoped to go back to being an aesthetic monk, but was imprisoned instead by his successor. He was canonized a saint in Pope Gregory XII resigned on July 4, 1415 to help end the Great Western Schism when there were multiple rival popes in the Church. As you are reading this, the Cardinals of the Church are gathered in Rome, preparing to elect a successor to the outgoing Pope We are all called to spend some moments in prayer to the Holy Spirit to guide the electors of the Church as they choose our next Supreme Pontiff. Above all, we trust in the Holy Spirit, believing that all these are happening to let God's will prevail for the good of the flock. We will for ever be grateful to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI - Pope Emeritus - for his great contributions to the Holy Mother church. GOD LOVES YOU ALL VERY DEARLY. In Christ, FR. ROMY

Dionisio God s grace within me and God s strength behind me can overcome any hurdle ahead of me. Anonymous ERCY God is mercy. That seems to be the main message of the reading from Exodus. God has seen the suffering of the Israelites and promises mercy and rescue. From then on, God is to be known as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Paul calls his readers to continue to grow in the faith. The God who rescued Israel also rescues them. As beneficiaries of God s mercy, Christians must keep on working, doing their part to become ever more trusting and loving people of God. The Gospel s second section is a homey story about God s mercy. Against the advice of the land owner, the vinedresser pleads for mercy and shows mercy to allow the poor fig tree yet another year to become productive. Copyright J. S.

LEOTA ROESCH - COORDINATOR ext.125 Dismissal - Unless other information to the contrary, each Sunday at the 10:30 Masses. Extended Catechesis-Our next gathering is March 6, John XXIII at 6:30 pm. Today, our Elect, Sam, Robert, Anthony, Christopher and Emily, celebrate the First Scrutiny Rite prescribed by the Church. All over the world today, those preparing for baptism are prayed over by their parish community, as they enter the last stages of preparation for the Easter sacraments. Father prays a prayer of exorcism over them, asking for the removal of evil and obstacles to faith from their lives as they near their baptism. There are two parts to the rite: 1) to uncover and heal and 2) to bring out and strengthen. The Gospel for today s Mass at this rite is from Year A and tells us of the Woman at the Well. We see Jesus breaking many barriers to minister to this woman bound up in sin and sorrow. He does the same for our Elect; he does the same for us. PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR ELECT AND CANDIDATE DURING THIS LENTEN SEASON. If you haven t done so already, take a card from the basket in the Narthex with the name of one of the Candidates for Sacraments remembering that you promised to support these adults and children and include them in your prayer and affection as we move toward Easter.

YEAR OF FAITH - Confessing with the lips indicates in turn that faith implies public testimony and commitment. A Christian may never think of belief as a private act. Faith is choosing to stand with the Lord so as to live with him. This standing with him points towards an understanding of the reasons for believing. Faith, precisely because it is a free act, also demands social responsibility for what one believes.
