March 18: Fifth Sunday of Lent

Sometimes you hear someone say, "I'll forgive, but I won't forget." The implication is that they will always be ready to bring it up if you do anything like this again. But this is not the way God forgives. Jeremiah says God "will forgive their evildoing and remember their sin no more" (Jeremiah 31:34). Indeed, this is the way the Lord has operated throughout scripture, and this is the way God continues to forgive. This is the way we are called to forgive each other. When you think of it, it is amazing that a tiny seed of wheat, planted in fertile soil and given plenty of sun and rain, can grow into a plant that is thousands of times the size of the original seed. But this can only happen if the seed dies, opening and spilling out all of its life force within. The death of the seed pro¬duces the life of the plant. We all have seeds within us that when planted can bear much fruit. But in order for this to happen, we have to break the husk of self-centeredness, let our selfishness die, and focus on the needs of others. Jesus calls us to obedience and service: "Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be" (John 12:26). He himself provides a clear example in today's Gospel. Though troubled, he accepts God's will. Though facing death, his focus is on others, addressing God and then addressing the crowd.

Gorzkie Żale (Bitter Lamentations)
During Lent, every Sunday after the 11:00 am Mass, we will sing GORZKIE ŻALE. It’s a beautiful Polish Lenten devotion. English speaking Parishioners who don’t understand Polish are cordially invited to be with us during this blessed time.

My Dear Parishioners!

May your hearts be filled with the radiant splendor of that true light which came to earth on that sacred night on which our Savior was born. Please know of my prayers for you during Masses of the Christmas Season, that you and your loved ones enjoy the blessings of this sacred time and throughout the coming New Year 2018!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Your Pastor - Fr. Jacek

Question of the Week

When I forgive someone who hurt me, do I truly forget it or does it continue to affect our relationship? How can I let go of the injury? How can I be confident that forgetting it will help?
