NEW MASS TIME/ NUEVO HORARIO DE MISA Our faith community continues to grow! Our Sunday 11a.m. and 1p.m. Spanish Masses are seeing attendance of 600 plus at both Masses. This is causing safety concerns as the church has seating for only 250. Therefore, it has been decided in the best interest of our faith community to add an additional Spanish Mass on Saturdays at 7p.m. The new Mass will begin on Saturday March 7, 2015 at 7p.m.. We hope that you will take advantage of the additional Mass to make your faith experience more enjoyable! La comunidad Hispana ha crecido de manera constante en los últimos anos y la asistencia tanto en las misas de las 11 a.m. y 1:00 p.m. están arriba de su capacidad. Ya que regularmente asisten entre 500 a 700 personas aproximadamente a las misas de 11 a.m. o 1:00 p.m. Nuestra iglesia tan solo tiene capacidad para 250 personas. El jefe de bomberos podría cerrarnos las puertas. Debido al crecimiento constante y en el mejor interés de nuestra comunidad de la iglesia, se ha decidió añadir otra misa en español en sábado a las 7p.m., que comenzara el 7 de marzo del 2015. Si actualmente usted ya es un ministro laico y desea formar parte de la misa de los sábados por favor pónganse en contacto con la oficina al 281-399-9008, necesitamos todo el apoyo de su parte. Esperamos tome provecho de esta nueva misa para hacer de su fe una experiencia mas emotiva. FOOD PANTRY NEWS February is peanut butter & jelly month. Thank you for all your help.

2015 CRS RICE BOWL

Hungering for a Bountiful Earth

This week CRS Rice Bowl takes us to the coffee highlands of Nicaragua, where we’re called to protect both the goodness of creation and the livelihoods of struggling families. How will this week’s fast remind us of the sacredness of God’s creation and our duty to protect it? 2015 PLATO DE ARROZ DE CRS

Hambre de una tierra abundante Esta semana Plato de Arroz de CRS nos lleva a las tierras altas de café de Nicaragua, donde somos llamados para proteger tanto el bien de la creación como los medios de vida de las familias que luchan. ?Como nos recordara el ayuno de este a semana lo sagrado de la creación de Dios y nuestro deber de protegerla? CDA NEWS Dearest Lord, during this holy time for so many, we pause to remember that your light can never be extinguished. Help us to believe in this truth so that we might live lives that display your eternal illumination. Amen.

If God is for us, who can be against us?—Romans 8:31b TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION Within the tradition of the Christian church, there are differing ways of observing a Lenten fast. For Eastern Catholics and Orthodox, the discipline is close to our understanding of “abstinence.” Certain foods are eliminated from the diet entirely. The rules are basically monastic rules, and the customs of a monastery table are embraced in the home. This year, “Meatfare Sunday” is February 26, and it is the last time that meat is admitted to the diet until Easter. The following Sunday, known as “Cheesefare Sunday,” takes cheese and all dairy products from the table. It is also known as “forgiveness Sunday” because a true fast is about crowning life with love, holding back harsh words, and cutting off anger. The Eastern churches fast even from celebrating the Eucharist from Monday through Friday. We don’t count Sundays as fast days, but Eastern Christians fast through the weekends. People are expected to come as close to the ideal as possible, and the Lenten services keep reminding them not to take pride in their fasting, since the devil himself never eats! What’s left on the menu? Grains, vegetables, eggs (maybe), and fish. Imagine the joys of the Easter table after such a fast!—Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE Cuando Jesús se transfiguró sobre la cima de un monte, Pedro, reconociendo que algo sagrado ocurría en ese lugar quiso construir tres chozas. Como si buscara hacer un santuario, un lugar santo, donde Dios se manifestara de manera particular. El santuario puede ser el lugar entero o sólo parte de un edificio. En nuestras iglesias, el santuario es el presbiterio donde se encuentra el altar mayor, donde son consagrados el pan y el vino. iglesias antiguas como las Basílicas romanas tienen un segundo santuario que es la capilla donde se reserva el Santísimo Sacramento en el tabernáculo o sagrario. Los santuarios más importantes de la cristiandad se encuentran en Palestina. Europa tiene varios santuarios como la tumba de Santiago en Compostela, España. Algunos santuarios famosos de América son los de Guadalupe (México), Teresa de los Andes (Chile), Señor de los Milagros (Perú), Cristo Negro de Esquipulas (Guatemala), Montserrat (Colombia) y el de la Divina Misericordia (Chicago). Todo santuario es un lugar donde se une el recuerdo y la vivencia contemporánea de la fe, son lugares donde la Iglesia institucional y la religión popular conviven y se enriquecen mutuamente.—Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

THE ART OF LISTENING If you want God to listen to you when you pray, shouldn’t you listen to God when God speaks to you? —Anonymous

EL ARTE DE ESCUCHAR Si quieres que Dios te escuche cuando rezas, ¿no deberías tú escuchar a Dios cuando te habla? —Anónimo
