2 CHURCH OF ST. THERESA, BRONX FROM THE DESK OF FATHER DERIVAN: The gospel today is about cleansing. Our Lord goes to the temple of Jerusalem, the place revered among the Jewish people as the house of prayer, and He finds something far different than a prayerful place. He finds a marketplace within the holy temple. The issue was not the animals that were being soldjewish law demanded sacrifices of animals as an offering to God. The issue was where this was taking place, not outside the temple, but right within, in the temple area that was considered sacred. He makes a whip out of cords, overturns the money changers tables and drives them out of the temple area, saying, Stop making my Father s house a marketplace. He cleanses the temple to make it what it was and what it should be, a house of prayer for all the nations. Lent is a special time of cleansing, cleansing our souls, cleansing our lives. Just as the Lord Jesus drove out from the temple of Jerusalem all that was wrong there, we must drive out things from the temple of our own heart, things that do not belong there. What does not belong in our hearts and in our lives? What must we cleanseor, more approporiately, what must we allow the Lord to cleanse in us? Pope Francis reminds us that during the Holy Season of Lent we should cleanse our hearts and our lives of three things, namely hatred, hardness of heart and indifference. First, we must cleanse ourselves of hatred. Most of us are not guilty of severe hatred towards another person. But we must admit that our hearts have been affected by anger, by hurts, by spiteful feeling towards others. We could call these little hatreds, not as serious, of course, as the hatred that results in violence, but things of which we should be cleansed, things we should let God cleanse us from during Lent. Let us all examine our lives on how we must cleanse them of these little hatreds. Then the second thing the Pope asks us to consider cleansing is hardness of heart. Now again most people, certainly you are not guilty of that hardness of heart which we read about in terrorist attacks. Those are certainly incidents of hearts being hardened to the sanctity of life and the dignity and sacredness of every human person. But still our hearts can be hardened in other ways, in cherishing grudges, in refusing to forgive those who have offended us, in refusing to bring friendships back together again. The opposite of hardness of heart is forgiveness. If you want to please God the most during Lent, then think of how much God has forgiven us by dying on the Cross and resolve to show that forgiveness to those who have offended you. Forgiveness is certainly one of the best Lenten sacrifices we can offer to the Lord. And then the Pope invites us to cleanse our hearts of indifference, and indifference simply means not caring. That attitude can certainly creep into our lives. We must avoid terrible sins, but can easily forget that we are called to help others in Christ s name. And that is true both for those we should help in body and in soul. In bodylent is our chance to do more and more the works of charity, helping those who need food, clothing or shelter. But it is also our time to help those who have the need of the soul, the need to get back with God. Pope Francis specifically mentioned the example of our holy patroness Saint Theresa. He said this about her, St. Theresa expressed her conviction that the joy in heaven for the victory of Jesus who is crucified love remains incomplete as long as there is still a single man or woman on earth who suffers and cries out in pain. She said, I trust fully that I shall not remain idle in heaven; my desire is to continue to work for the Church and for souls. We too must cleanse our hearts from indifference and, like St. Theresa, we must overcome indifference and work hard for the salvation of others. Our Lord cleansed the temple of Jerusalem, making it once again the sacred temple of God. That cleansing took just a few moments. The cleansing of our hearts and our lives takes a lifetime. But we cannot do that on our own. God s grace and our good efforts must go together. God will never fail to do His part in cleaning of our souls, and making time to make our souls what they should bethe sacred temples of Almighty God. Father Thomas B. Derivan A LENTEN PRAYER My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. I know that you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone. By Thomas Merton MARCH 11, 2018 JOIN US FOR OUR CHURCH TOUR We invite you to join a TOUR OF ST. THERESA S CHURCH which will take place this Saturday, March 10th, meeting at 1:00PM in the vestibule. One of our parishioners made the excellent suggestion that we have this tour to learn about the different shrines, the structure of the sanctuary, the sacristy and other items of interest in our beautiful church. Many people have attended Mass here for years and may have questions about different items that they have seen again and again. This is your chance to see it all! After the tour (which will take about one hour) we will have prayers remembering the many parishioners who built our church, without whom we would not have our beautiful house of God. We look forward to your joining us on Saturday at 1:00PM

3 THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT REFLECTION OF POPE FRANCIS FOR THE THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT Today s Gospel presents the episode of the expulsion of the merchants from the temple (Jn 2:1325). Jesus made a whip of cords, he drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple (Jn 2:15), the money, everything. Such a gesture gave rise to strong impressions in the people and in the disciples. It clearly appeared as a prophetic gesture, so much so that some of those present asked Jesus: What sign have you to show us for doing this? (v. 18), who are you to do these things? Show us a sign that you have authority to do them. They were seeking a divine and prodigious sign that would confirm that Jesus was sent by God. And He responded: Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up (v. 19). They replied: It has taken 46 years to build this temple, and you will raise it up in three days? (v. 20). They did not understand that the Lord was referring to the living temple of his body, that would be destroyed in the death on the Cross, but would be raised on the third day. Thus, in three days. When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that He had said this; and they believed the Scripture and the word Jesus had spoken (v. 22). In effect, this gesture of Jesus and His prophetic message are fully understood in the light of his Paschal Mystery. We have here, according to the evangelist John, the first proclamation of the death and resurrection of Christ: His body, destroyed on the Cross by the violence of sin, will become in the Resurrection the universal meeting place between God and mankind. And the Risen Christ is Himself the universal meeting place for everyone! between God and mankind. For this reason, his humanity is the true temple where God is revealed, speaks, is encountered; and the true worshippers, the true worshippers of God are not only the guardians of the material temple, the keepers of power and of religious knowledge, [but] they are those who worship God in spirit and truth (Jn 4:23). In this time of Lent we are preparing for the celebration of Easter, when we will renew the promises of our Baptism. Let us walk in the world as Jesus did, and let us make our whole existence a sign of our love for our brothers, especially the weakest and poorest. Let us build for God a temple of our lives. And so we make it encounterable for those who we find along our journey. If we are witnesses of the Living Christ, so many people will encounter Jesus in us, in our witness. But, we ask and each one of us can ask ourselves does the Lord feel at home in my life? Do we allow Him to cleanse our hearts and to drive out the idols, those attitudes of jealousy, worldliness, envy, hatred, those habits of gossiping and tearing down others. Do I allow Him to cleanse all the behaviors that are against God, against our neighbor, and against ourselves, as we heard today in the first Reading? Each one can answer for him/ herself, in the silence of his/her heart: Do I allow Jesus to make my heart a little cleaner? Jesus cleanses with tenderness, mercy, love. Mercy is His way of cleansing. Let us, each of us, let us allow the Lord to enter with His mercy not with the whip, no, with His mercy to cleanse our hearts. Let us open to Him the gates so that He will make us a little purer. Every Eucharist that we celebrate with faith makes us grow as a living temple of the Lord, thanks to the communion with His crucified and risen Body. Jesus recognizes what is in each of us, and knows well our most ardent desires: that of being inhabited by Him, only by Him. Let us allow Him to enter into our lives, into our families, into our hearts. Angelus Message, March 8, 2015 LENT AT ST.

4 MARCH 4TH ST. CASIMIR PATRON OF POLAND St. Casimir was the third among the thirteen children of Casimir III, King of Poland. He was born on October 5, Although educated in a royal court, he had a horror of luxury and practiced many mortifications in secret. Under the care of the holy canon, John Dugloss, he grew up in singular innocence. One of his principle devotions was to the Blessed Virgin, in whose honor he composed, or a least frequently recited, the wellknown Hymn of St. Casimir. When the crown of Hungary was offered to him, St. Casimir marched at the head of an army of 20,000 men to the frontier, to comply with his father s will. The reigning King of Hungary whom the people wished to dethrone was Matthias Corvinus. On reaching the frontier and learning that the differences between King and people had been adjusted, St. Casimir gladly returned home. Realizing afterward the injustice of the attempt against the King of Hungary, he could never be prevailed upon to assume the crown when the Hungarians again offered it to him. To the end of his life St. Casimir preserved untainted his purity of soul and body, nor could he ever be induced to enter the state of matrimony. A lingering tuberculosis ended his brief career, which was brought to a close a Vilna, the capital of Lithuania, in PRAYER Almighty God, to serve You is to reign. By the interceding prayers of St. Casimir help us ever to serve You in sanctity and justice. Amen A LENTEN PRACTICE: PRAY FOR OTHERS During this Lenten season, why not look for opportunities to help others in whatever way you can. Are you a teacher? Just think of the multiple occasions that occur during you classes to help your students individually or collectively. Enjoy the experience and satisfaction of seeing another learn from your help. Are you a mother or father? Over and above your daily chores as a parent, single out a special time to actively participate in a game or other activity with your child. Enjoy the satisfaction that comes from experiencing the joyous response that your help and assistance elicit from your pupils, your children, from any and all that you help. Prayerfully adopt someone in particular someone whom you know or feel needs your prayerful assistance. It can be anyone: your bishop or pastor, the President, an actor or actress in trouble, someone who made the headlines recently or you can be less specific by praying for all who are going to die this day, or for those souls in purgatory. The opportunities to pray for others are unlimited. Make praying for others your Lenten resolution this yearyou may want to keep it up well beyond Easter Sunday. (Reprinted from Franciscan Associates Magazine) MARCH 4, 2018 MARCH 7TH STS. PERPETUA & FELICITY MARTYRS Sts. Perpetua and Felicity and the friends who died with them at Carthage are in a special class among the primitive Martyrs since we possess authentic detailed records that give us a vivid picture of their experiences and personalities. There is a diary of St. Perpetua herself, a page by another martyr, and a concluding account by a firsthand witness who is thought to have been Tertullian. St. Perpetua was a twentytwoyearold noble lady of Carthage with a baby son and St. Felicity was a married slave who was pregnant. They were arrested under the antichristian edict of 202 along with three fellow Christians, Saturninus, Secundulus, and Revocatus. All had been converted by a layman, Saturus, who joined them voluntarily in the dungeon in which they were imprisoned for refusing to sacrifice to the gods. St. Perpetua yielded her nursing child to her pagan father but remained firm in her Faith in spite of his pleas. St. Felicity gave birth to a child in prison and also remained steadfast in the Faith when the child was taken from her. The martyrs were condemned to death and mauled by beasts in the amphitheater before finally being beheaded in the year 203. So shaken was the executioner by St. Perpetua s commanding aristocratic appearance that she herself had to guide his blade to her neck. Their martyrdom became known throughout the Church St. Augustine preached in their honor at least three times. St. Perpetua is mentioned in the Roman Canon or Eucharistic Prayer I, but the Felicity mentioned with her is probably the Roman Martyr of 162. PRAYER God, inspired by Your love, Sts. Perpetua and Felicity were able to disregard persecution and overcome the torment of death. Aided by their prayers, may we make constant progress in our love for You. Amen AnnunciationOur Lady of Fatima parish proudly presents their annual Seven Last Words of Christ concert on Sunday, March 4th at 3:00PM.

5 PRAYER FOR THE THIRD WEEK OF LENT Sunday Loving Father, So many times I turn away from you and always you welcome me back. Your mercy and love gives me confidence. Thank you for the invitation to share, fast and pray so that you can form a new heart within me. Your powerful compassion for my weaknesses leads me to ask for mercy and await with great hope the Easter joy you share with us. Monday Merciful God, free your Church from the sins of this world and protect us from the evil we see and the evil we prefer to ignore. We need your guidance, Lord for we cannot do this alone. Only with your help can we be saved. Thank you for your desire to save us and love us. Tuesday God of infinite love, I thank you for this reminder of your love and your call that we be more patient, gentle and compassionate with others. Here in the middle of Lent, I turn to you to beg for your help. Please soften my heart. Help me to let go of judging others. I ask you this, in Jesus name. Wednesday God, you love me as your own child. May I bend my life and will toward you so that I might accept your teaching and guidance. I am so grateful for your support in my life, now and in the eternal life you are preparing for me. I beg for your help and Spirit in my life today. Thursday Loving God, I hear you invitation, Come back to me and I am filled with such a longing to return to you. Show me the way to return. Lead me this day in good works that I do in your name and send your Spirit to guide me and strengthen my faith. I ask only to feel your love in my life today. Friday God of Mercy, I feel my heart overflowing with your tenderness. I sense your loving touch deep within my soul. I ask for your help in my weakness that I might be faithful to your word and I am so grateful that your mercy for my failings is as strong as your unbounded love for me. Saturday God of Mercy and Understanding, I know that with help I can open my heart more fully to the mysteries of the suffering and death of your son. Help me to be humble in this journey and remember that any mercy and compassion I feel is a gift from you. I await the joy of Easter with new longing and patience. (Creighton University) WHY PRAY THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS? 8 REASONS FROM POPE FRANCIS The Stations of the Cross are an ancient tradition in the Catholic Church going back to the fourth century when Christians went on pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Like many of our Catholic traditions, the Stations of the Cross can be rich, deep, and meaningful, but at the same time we can lose sight of their significance and how to relate them to our everyday lives. Here are 8 reasons from our Holy Father on why we should pray the Stations of the Cross. 1. They Allow Us to Place Our Trust in Him The Cross of Christ contains all the love of God; there we find his immeasurable mercy. This is a love in which we can place all out trust, in which we can believe.let us entrust ourselves to Jesus, let us give ourselves over to him, because he never disappoints anyone! Only in Christ crucified and risen can we find salvation and redemption. 2. They Put Us into the Story And you, who do you want to be? Like Pilate? Like Simon? Like Mary? Jesus is looking at you now and is asking you: do you want to help me carry the Cross? Brothers and sisters, with all the strength of your youth, how will you respond to him? 3. They Remind Us That Jesus Suffers with Us The Cross of Christ bears the suffering and the sin of mankind, including our own. Jesus accepts all this with open arms, bearing on his shoulders our crosses and saying to us: Have courage! You do not carry your cross alone! I carry it with you. I have overcome death and I have come to give you hope, to give you life. 4. They Compel Us to Action But the Cross of Christ invites us also to allow ourselves to be smitten by his love, teaching us always to look upon with mercy and tenderness, especially those who suffer, who are in need of help, who need a word or a concrete action. 5. They Help Us Make a Decision for or Against Christ [The Cross} reveals a judgment, namely that God, in judging us, loves us. Let us remember this: God judges us by loving us. If I embrace his love then I am saved. If I refuse it, then I am condemned, not by him, but my own self, because God never condemns, he only loves and saves. 6. They Reveal God s Response to Evil in the World The Cross is the word through which God has responded to evil in the world. Sometimes it may seem as though God does not react to evil, as if he is silent. And yet, God has spoken, he has replied, and his answer is the Cross of Christ: a word which is love, mercy, forgiveness. 7. They Give Us the Certainty of God s Love for Us What has the Cross given to those who have gazed upon it and to those who have touched it? What has the Cross left in each one of us? You see, it gives us a treasure that no one else can give: the certainty of the faithful love which God has for us. 8. They Guide Us from the Cross to the Resurrection O, Our Jesus, guide us from the Cross to the resurrection and teach us that evil shall not have the last word, but love, mercy and forgiveness. O Christ, help us to exclaim again: Yesterday I died with Him, today I live with Him. Yesterday I was buried with Him, today I am raised with Him.
