Our Weekly Parish Newsletter for February 26/First Sunday of Lent
""Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished. The tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread." But he answered, "It is written, 'Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
(Matthew 4. 1-11)
Message from Fr. Mike for Sunday, Feb. 26
To the parishioners of St. Philip Neri Parish, sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints –
"Grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ”.
If we are afraid to be different, how can we make a difference in the world? (St. Ignatius of Loyola)
Today … do not harden your hearts but listen to the voice of the Lord.
The man was a dishonest painter. He had an on-going “trick” – he would thin his paint to make an extra profit. In this way, he could under-cut the estimates of other painters and further his business. He was given the contract to paint the local church. His quote seemed exceptionally reasonable, affordable to the parishioners. As usual he “thinned” his paint, also reasoning that the people wouldn’t notice that it was not a quality performance. By the end of the day, he had completed his task … the church had a new coat of paint. But that night there was a terrible rainstorm, washing his paint job to the ground. In one of the cracks of thunder, he heard a booming voice say, “Repaint, you thinner! And thin no more!” This man not only had a dishonest business, but he also had a dishonest heart. It was time for him to clean up his act!
The Season of Lent is a time for us to “repent”. As St. Paul (speaking to the Corinthians) reflects the voice of the Lord, “At an acceptable time I have listened to you, and on the day of salvation I have helped you. NOW, this is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation.” Lent can be for all of us – a time to clean up our act. It’s a time to reflect on our “hypocrisy” – when I “pretend” to be upright and honourable – when, in fact, my attitudes and behaviors show that I am not righteous.
The graces of reconciliation invite us to reflect on those areas (attitudes) that need to “turn around” (our metanoia), to see life differently, to allow the love of the Spirit to make the changes necessary, so as to live in the Kingdom of God.
I invite you to consider the following Lenten practice. What do I need to change, to “let go”, so that I have an unshakeable freedom to come to the Lord … in the Eucharist? During Communion time at Mass, as I watch each person pass before me or behind me, that I can say to each person – in the quiet of my heart – “I see you as the Body of Christ!” … so that when I receive the Eucharist in my hand, I can truly say “AMEN”, to the Body of Christ. NOW is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation!
Let us pray:
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and sustain in me a willing spirit.
O Lord, open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise.
Praise be Jesus Christ … and Mary Immaculate
St. Philip Neri … pray for us
St. Eugene de Mazenod … pray for us
St. Kateri Tekakwitha … pray for us
God is good … all the time.
Fr. Mike Dechant OMI
Something from the Parish:
MARCH 3 is designated as WORLD DAY OF PRAYER. This year, along with other Christians churches in the area, St. Philip Neri Parish will host an ecumenical gathering for prayer and food and fellowship – to pray for the people of Taiwan, and for our own concerns to gather as children of God. We will gather at 5 pm, at St. Philip Neri Parish, on Friday, March 3.
Jesus told his disciples (and each one of us), “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24). Then he also assures us, “Come to me all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest … for I am gentle and humble of heart.” (Matthew 11:28-29). Thus, another Lenten reminder: Each family attending the Celebration of the Eucharist at St. Philip Neri Parish, is invited (and encouraged) to carry in the Processional Cross at the beginning of each Mass. All families “who are weary and carrying heavy burdens”, will have an opportunity to bring their cross(es) to the foot of the altar. Carry in the cross on behalf of your own family, and each family gathered for prayer… to sense Jesus’ promise, “and I will give you rest”. We can’t get to heaven alone … so we help carry each other’s crosses along the way.
“A stranger is a friend you haven’t met, yet!” Choose a Lenten Friend/Family. Find someone “at Church” that you see regularly, but don’t know their names, yet. For example, if you are a family, find another family, to meet and introduce yourselves to. Introduce your children to one another – visit and enjoy each other’s company. During Lent – and into the Easter Season – meet and greet each time you gather for prayer or at social events.
A Prayer for Ukraine
Sadly, the One Year Anniversary of this horrible war
God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children at risk and in fear that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus the Prince of Peace. Amen.
Just a few days left of February and we are into March. For whatever reason, Mother Nature decided to wallop us with some very frigid temperatures (aka "Extreme Cold Warnings"!) this past week to remind us of where we live and what season it is! OK! We get it! Let's move on! Thankfully we ARE moving on, to -5C by this Sunday! Now that's more like it! March is definititely coming in like a lamb, and hopefully this litte lamb is going to stick around until Spring! (No lions allowed!)
Our Lenten journey has begun. Let's see what's coming up for this week, in our Parish and around our Diocese, as we proceed along our journey of prayer, fasting and alms-giving:

In keeping with alms-giving, some parishioners did not have Ash Wednesday envelopes at Mass this past Wed. evening and we apologize for not having some extras available. If you would still like to give, you may now grab a grey Ash Wednesday Offering envelope from either of the small tables either before or after you enter the church area. There are also more white "Special Collections" envelopes set out as well, for your convenience during Lent, especially for those parishioners who give through our PAG (Pre-Authorized Giving) program, and don't have a box of envelopes.

Horizons of Hope: A Toolkit for Catholic Parishes on Palliative Care is an important resource that will be presented from 7 - 9 pm on four Tuesdays - February 28, March 7, 14 and 21 - at the Cathedral of the Holy Family.
When confronted with a life-limiting diagnosis, we can find ourselves in an unfamiliar and even frightening situation. These moments are usually marked by having to make numerous practical decisions surrounding care and support for loved ones and ourselves. More often than not, such decisions require moral discernment through the lens of our faith. We believe in the dignity and sacredness of human life at all stages, from conception to natural death. At the same time, our faith does not demand that life is to be sustained at all costs. As Catholics, our faith in Jesus Christ has much to teach us about living and dying well. To register, please contact Diane Waldbillig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
