1 Corpus Christi Catholic Community Building the Body of Christ February 21, 2016 nd 2 Sunday of Lent This Is The Time To Become Fully Awake Sunday Reflection "Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep, but becoming fully awake, they saw his glory." Today's Gospel records the event we call the Transfiguration of the Lord. In this miraculous moment, Jesus' divine nature was revealed clearly to Peter, James and John. Often, we think only in terms of what happened to Jesus: "his face changed" and "his clothing became dazzling white" and he began a supernatural conversation with two ancient prophets. But that was only half of the story. The other part is what happened to the men. They were able to witness this revelation of Jesus only because they were "fully awake." Had they stayed sleeping, they would have missed out. They would not have had this astonishing insight into the glory of their friend and Master. It's an obvious point but one that may need more attention than we'd care to admit. Of course we have to be "awake" in order to absorb the fullness of our faith. If we are not tuned in, not attentive, not exerting any effort, (cont. on p. 3) In the midst of Lent give a morning of your time to prayerfully reflect on scripture together, sing hymns of our tradition, and offer input for the celebration of the Easter Season at Corpus Christi.

3 Page 3 Lenten Mercy 2016 Contributing Shoes As we Journey Toward Christ the Light we are called to consider the Corporal Works of Mercy in our Lenten exercises. The many foot prints on the east wall of church are headed toward the Risen Lord. Foot prints? Hmmmm? What could that have to do with the Corporal Works of Mercy? Oh, perhaps it has to do with clothe the naked starting right at their very feet. You are invited to buy some new shoes for those served by our St. Vincent de Paul Society and to place them in the planter below the Risen Lord. You may buy shoes for adults or children, women or men. Probably casual shoes or athletic shoes would be most practical. Please leave them in their original boxes; this will make it easy to identify the shoe size and to store the shoes. Thank you already! Deacon Paul and Curtis Simpson, Jr. February 21, 2016 Sunday Reflection (continued from page 1) then we are certainly going to miss out. But the fact is that we don't always realize we are falling asleep. Just as Peter, James, and John were "overcome" with sleep, we too can slip into this state without necessarily realizing it's happening. Spiritually speaking, we can become numb or lazy and slowly fade away from the fervor of authentic faith. This is why the church, in her wisdom, gives us the season of Lent. During these weeks, we strive to purify ourselves by attacking the sins and selfishness that make us spiritual sleepwalkers. This is the time to refocus, to clear away the cobwebs and to become "fully awake." Ultimately, we pray that these efforts will allow us to truly see "his glory" come Eastertide. written by Theresa Schiffer 2016 Liturgical Publications Inc Young Adults CORPUS CHRISTI YOUNG ADULT EMMAUS GROUP Fridays of Lent, 7-8:30 pm in the Rectory living room All Corpus Christi young adults (college students, professionals, singles, married couples) are invited to gather on Fridays during Lent to encounter, or reencounter Jesus Christ, the community He began, and the way of life He showed us.

Separate camping experiences for boys and girls are available which include daily Mass, horseback riding, swimming, archery, various sports, high and low ropes, and crafts. For more information, call or visit Pope Francis On Families For Pope Francis, the family is the cornerstone of our faith. He offers 10 suggestions to strengthen you, refresh you, and illuminate the pages of your own life story. Here is suggestion #3: Do The Little Things. It is true that there as so many difficulties in married life, so many, when there is insufficient work or money, when the children have problems... and many times the husband and wife become a little fractious and argue between themselves... Yet we must not become saddened by this. Love is stronger than the mom ent when there is arguing, and therefore I always advised spouses: do not let a day when you have arguedd end without making peace. Always! And to make peace it isn t necessary to call the United Nations to come to the house and make peace. A little gesture is sufficient, a caress, and then let it be! (from an article excerpted from the book The Blessing of Family: Inspiring Words frm Pope Francis, Franciscan Media) Everyday Stewardship I remember when I was younger, being on a retreat and praying alone in a chapel for the successful talk a friend was giving at the same time. What was different on this day was I decided to pray the psalms aloud since no one else was there to judge either my singing ability or my mode of prayer. For about thirty minutes I sang aloud, one psalm after another. Towards the end of my prayer time, I felt a very strong presence of God. There is much more to the story, but suffice to say that it was an experience that made me break down into tears and one that I will never forget. God had broken through my ordinary life and was present to me in a way that was extraordinary. I often tell people that one reason I love being Catholic is that for us the supernatural is really the natural. We believe bread and wine become Jesus Corpus Christi Needs You!!! Attention confirm ation and high school students! W e have opportunities for you to live out your full m em bership in the church and earn comm unity service hours at Corpus Christi: Noah s Ark Nursery Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Coffee/Donut Fellowship EME, Lector, Altar Server, Usher, Greeter Call to sign up! Christ, we understand the supernatural reality of all the sacraments, and we hopefully are never surprised when we see the powerful results of prayer. There should be no separation between our ordinary lives in the natural world and the elements of the supernatural world. When the apostles see Moses and Elijah before them in this week's Gospel from Luke, they want to immediately pitch tents for them to stay.

What would your response be to seeing Moses and Elijah? Fear? Confusion? Hospitality? Being prayerful is a prim ary characteristic of an Everyday Steward. The goal is to make our entire day a prayer and to allow God into every mom ent. The more we practice this type of prayer, the more the supernatural and the natural blend. We become more open to being used by God for his glory. And who knows, the chance may increase that one day we might just say without surprise, "Hello, Moses and Elijah!

9 Journey Toward Christ The Light Our Lenten Journey continues. As we travel our path toward Christ the Light, there are often things that hinder our progress. What obstacles, blocks, hurdles, clouds or barriers are deterring you along the Journey to Christ the Light? What clouds, attitudes, feelings or events hold you back from forward progress? Each week during Lent you are invited to write on a slip of paper whatever hinders your journey that week and to put the paper into our Lenten Turn It Over To God Basket. At our weekend Lenten Masses, we will lay at the altar all that hinders us, especially what you have written and placed in the basket. We will then pray together to be freed from all that hinders our Journey Toward Christ the Light.

10 Close to 150 people attended the Generations of Faith Session on January 31. You came because I want to grow in my faith. I love to be with my church family. There is always something new to learn. Father Don twisted our arm. Colleen Vermuelen left the adults with images of the double table, the Word of God as an audible sacrament, and the diagram of the movement of the Mass: from call to hearing the Word to responding to sealing the covenant by sacrifice. We are especially grateful to our catechists: Michele Hudson, Jennifer Long, Gilda & Roy Ford, and Rhonda & Carlton Walker for helping our young members grow in faith. For the closing, the youngest children sang B-I-B-L-E that s the book for me! ; the elementary children shared their learnings about the parts of the Mass and the items in the church; and 17 youth and 2 catechists wrote a psalm which they promised would be published in the parish bulletin. Here it is! Psalm 151 In Thanksgiving and Praise of our God. Give thanks to the Lord who gave us life. You have blessed me with the love of many friends and family; I thank you for every one of them and for your own love for me. Thank you God for music that has saved many people s lives. God s gifts come in many ways such as family, food, water, love and many other ways. You should be proud for whatever He gave to you on earth. If you re mad at any of your family members, try to be happy because God gave you that family member for a reason so don t be mad at them, be thankful! Thank the Lord for He has bestowed His works on us. Meanwhile He continues to bless us as long as we stay faithful to the Lord. Jesus helps us through our bad times and is there for us. He will always be there for us. W e are thankful for that. I praise God for waking me up and for me being alive today and every day. I also praise Him for my mom, dad, sisters and brother that they heal. I praise the Lord for all He has given to me. God is the Father almighty that will bring light when there is darkness. Jesus was given to the world by God to heal, judge, and distribute the rewards of eternity. Jesus is within you every day and will help you through your trials. Even when you give up on Him, He will never give up on you. And Jesus said, I will help you in times of pain and trouble. God works in many ways. Some may seem confusing, but all of them are for a reason and He is always trying to make you happy. God is almighty, the one who would lead us to peace and prosperity. He will also bring us signs, gifts and/or messages to help us in the life we were given, and to help us on the journey to a better place, heaven. God is patient, kind and merciful. He is the alpha and omega; the beginning and the end. He gave his son, Jesus Christ, as a covenant with those who believe in Him that they may have eternal life. Praise the Lord for He is merciful and forgiving. God forgives everyone. He is so powerful; He can even forgive those who have committed the worse sins. God is life. He is Just. He is right. W ithout God we as a human race are not complete. God is the only way to true happiness and prosperity. Coming Soon!
