2nd Sunday of Lent

It’s another fantastic week at Newman. We’ve got Adoration on Monday night 9-10, plus all Friday morning for First Friday Adoration. Tuesday there’s Stump the Priest during lunch at the caf. Wednesday we’re having an info session for the Spring Break Service Trip to Idabel, Oklahoma. Don’t miss this free chance to serve and grow spiritually!

Furthermore, we’re launching a new speaker series called Fireside. It will be a casual evening with a distinguished guest and conversations around the fire, either in our lobby or on the new patio if the weather permits. Our first Fireside guest, Deacon Kenny Longbrake, will be speaking on the Prodigal Son painting in our chapel. Snacks, desserts, and light refreshments will be included.

It’s not too late to get involved with the Clear Creek Abbey Work Day. We’ll carpool from Newman at 6:00a sharp. Finally, don’t forget about the opportunity every Friday in Lent for Stations of the Cross, a meager meatless meal, and the Catholicism film series starting at 5:00p.

The Gospel reading for next Sunday (Luke 13:1-9):

Some people told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices. Jesus said to them in reply,  “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way  they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did! Or those eighteen people who were killed  when the tower at Siloam fell on them— do you think they were more guilty  than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!”  And he told them this parable:  “There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard,  and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none, he said to the gardener, ‘For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree  but have found none. So cut it down. Why should it exhaust the soil?’ He said to him in reply, ‘Sir, leave it for this year also,  and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it;  it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down.’”

The Gospel for next Sunday (Luke 9:28-36):

Jesus took Peter, John, and James
and went up the mountain to pray.
While he was praying his face changed in appearance
and his clothing became dazzling white.
And behold, two men were conversing with him, Moses and Elijah,
who appeared in glory and spoke of his exodus
that he was going to accomplish in Jerusalem.
Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep,
but becoming fully awake,
they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
As they were about to part from him, Peter said to Jesus,
“Master, it is good that we are here;
let us make three tents,
one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
But he did not know what he was saying.
While he was still speaking,
a cloud came and cast a shadow over them,
and they became frightened when they entered the cloud.
Then from the cloud came a voice that said,
“This is my chosen Son; listen to him.”
After the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone.
They fell silent and did not at that time
tell anyone what they had seen.
