2013 CATHOLIC APPEAL
This weekend, our parish joins with all the parishes in the Archdiocese of Boston in the 2013 Catholic
Appeal. The Appeal supports the 50 ministries that benefit hundreds of pastoral, charitable and
educational programs. This is the most effective way for our parish community to join in the Church’s
universal work of caring for those among us who are in need. We are each called to care for our
neighbors, and during this holy time of Lent, we have the opportunity to be the Good Samaritan to others
through our support of the Catholic Appeal. Envelopes are provided in the pews for your pledge.
Thank you for your prayers and support of this important effort.

LENTEN MOVIE NIGHT
WRITER’S WORKSHOP
As part of our parish's Lenten journey, the
Spiritual Life Commission will present a
showing of the 1995 film "Dead Man Walking"
(Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn, 122 min). In
this powerful film, based on the real-life
experiences of Sr. Helen Prejean, we see her
struggles as she accompanies a man on death
row while also trying to help the family of his
victims.
The Women’s Table of The Sisters of St.
Joseph of Boston is sponsoring a 6-week Writer’s
Workshop for women. This series helps women
explore their life through writing prompts and
provides an opportunity to connect with others
in a meaningful way. No prior writing
experience is necessary, just a desire to learn
more about one’s life. The instructor is Mary
Caruso who is trained in writing, education and
law. These sessions are free and will be held at
the Sisters of St. Joseph Motherhouse at 637
Cambridge St., Brighton. We will meet on
Thursday mornings, from 10 – 11:30 am: March
14, 21, 28, April 4, 11 and April 18th. Please
consider joining us! To register, call Mary Rita
Weschler
at:
617.746.2056
or

We will begin with a bite to eat in the Friary
Room at 5:00 PM on Saturday, March 16, and
then proceed to watch the film, ending with
dessert and a shared reflection and discussion.

Queridos Parroquianos,
En mi homilía del domingo pasado hablé de la pregunta que nos hacemos en los momentos mas
trasformativos de nuestras vidas. ¿Quién soy yo? ¿ Quien soy yo, frente del misterio de Dios? Hablé
de Abram cuando miraba el cielo y trató de contar las estrellas. Debío hacerse la pregunta, ¿ Quien
soy yo frente de esta creación tan inmensa y incomprensible? En la primera lectura de hoy la
pregunta es similar. Moisés le hace la pregunta a la voz que habla de la zarza ardiente, ¿ Quien eres
tu? ¿ Cual es tu nombre? Y Dios le revela su nombre a Moisés. Yo Soy el que soy. La razón por la cual
venimos a la Eucaristía todos los domingos tiene que ver con esta experiencia de la revelación del
misterio de Dios, especialmente en su Hijo amado, Jesucristo. Igualmente tenemos la oportunidad de
conocernos mejor como individuos y como comunidad.
Al final de la Misa el domingo pasado hablé del artículo que escribí hace 4 meses y fue publicado en
la revista AMERICA esta semana pasada. Tiene que ver con la experiencia de uno de los miembros de
nuestra comunidad que fue deportado con su familia y como me afectó. Está escrito en inglés pero le
he pedido a uno de los miembros de la comunidad que lo traduzca al Español. Si prefieren leerlo en
inglés, les doy la página en el internet.

Espero que se acaben las tormentas y podamos celebrar las Misas dominicales que nos quedan en esta
temporada de Cuaresma sin estos obstáculos!
En la paz de Cristo
Padre Bob
