THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT PDF Print E-mail

.Transfiguration by Brother Blair Nuyda, A.A.

There is no doubt that we have made immense progress largely due to the advancements in science and technology. However, there is no denying that this progress has led to an unprecedented inhumane disassociation with God, other humans, and other non-human-creatures. Like the Israelites while they wandered in the desert, we have abandoned the fullness of God’s wisdom and have made into gods the works of our own hands. We now consider our neighbors as nothing more than objects to be exploited or threats we must guard ourselves against. We daily pillage and abuse the earth and other non-human-creatures because we have wrongly convinced ourselves that nothing else matters but us.

SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT PDF Print E-mail

.Transfiguration by Brother Blair Nuyda, A.A.

Today’s Lenten reflection is written by Father Chi Ai Nguyen, A.A.,
Theology Professor at Assumption University

In the depths of our being, there is the power of life that is irrepressible. It helps us to overcome our difficulties. Being powerful doesn’t mean being without weakness. Being powerful means being capable of overcoming our weaknesses. The more we are able to face our weaknesses, the more powerful we become.

When we contemplate Jesus on the cross, we understand that the power of God is at work within weakness. God’s love for us appears the most powerful when Jesus, his Son, endures human suffering and accepts death. God’s love demonstrates its greatest strength when it embraces human weakness to the end. In today’s Gospel, Jesus takes Peter, James and John onto a high mountain to show them the horizon of their hope. This moment of light doesn’t eradicate the reality of the cross. The transfiguration precedes the cross without destroying it.

BISHOP BARRON ON WHY BEING GOOD IS NOT ENOUGH PDF Print E-mail

.

As we enter into the liturgical season of lent, the church around us changes. Songs become more somber, the priest and deacons wear different colored robes, and Mass parts change. But how does this help us enter into Lent? Let’s dive into this with Bishop Barron.

YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH PDF Print E-mail

.

Today we begin our Wednesdays with St. Joseph, our weekly reflection on his life and virtues during this Year of St. Joseph. Our weekly reflections are courtesy of Pflaum Weeklies of Bayard USA - an Assumptionist sponsored ministry.

Pope Francis surprises us again! He’s been keeping busy during this pandemic and is marking the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as the patron of the universal Church in a special way. He has released a new apostolic letter, With a Father’s Heart (Patris corde), and proclaimed a special Year of Saint Joseph beginning on 12/8/20, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, and extending to the same feast in 2021.

Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a father who was beloved, tender, loving, obedient, accepting, creatively courageous, working, and in the shadows. As he concludes the apostolic letter, Pope Francis encourages us to pray this prayer for our own conversion:

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil.

Amen.

Imagine for a moment that you are living in a world where all of your current burdens and fears are gone. You wake up in the morning with a smile so large it could move mountains; you walk around with a confident posture, knowing that there is nothing in the world that could bring you down; you greet strangers with a joyous laugh – You think to yourself, ‘This must be what Heaven is like’.

FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT REFLECTION PDF Print E-mail

Temptation of Christ by Brother Blair Nuyda, A.A.

Today’s Lenten reflection is written by Brother Hugo Morales, A.A.,
 Campus Minister at Assumption University

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Lent, a liturgical season where we are invited to turn our hearts to God as we prepare to experience the Easter Vigil in an authentic way. For this reason, the reading from the Gospel of St. Mark mentions that the Spirit led Jesus into the desert where he remained for forty days and was tempted by the devil. 

From this biblical context, what does the word “desert” mean as a hermeneutical key for the beginning of Lent? This word has several interpretations, among them, I would like to emphasize its meaning as a trial in order to strengthen our Christian life during this significant time of Lent.
