MESSAGE FOR THE WEEK
Our humanity bleeds through today's Gospel passages in more ways than one. We see both elation and fall, hope in the midst of the darker sides of our natures. If we allow it, these Gospels hold a mirror to our own fickle hearts. The crowds cry "Hosanna" and the Apostles profess allegiance unto death. In a manner of days -- even hours -- Jesus is betrayed, abandoned, denied, condemned, tortured, and executed. As God, he could have stopped this horrific narrative from unfolding, but he doesn't. He allows free will to play itself out. There are nearly two millennia between this spectacle and us. We can stand safely removed, if we choose. But Lent invites us to return to this story. Lent invites us to find ourselves in the people we encounter there. Are we the repentant woman at Bethany? Are we naysayers of such lavish piety? Have we acted in a way that betrays those we love or denies what we know to be good and true? Have we fallen asleep in our faith? Have we unfairly accused others of a crime or immorality we imagine, though perhaps they didn't commit? Do we help others carry their burdens? Do we stand in solidarity with those who suffer? Do we care for the dying? This week, take up today's Gospel again. Look carefully at the Passion narrative and sit with it in silence. Find yourself in the story and ponder its meaning for your own life. Journey with Jesus to the foot of the Cross so that you too may say, along with the faithful centurion, "truly this man was the Son of God!"

F A I T H F O R M A T I O N RECOGNIZE GOD IN YOUR
ORDINARY MOMENTS I read a story recently about a teacher who donated a kidney to one of her former students. This tremendous act of selflessness came about because the young person had lost most of the function of his kidneys due to an illness. Literally, that teacher gave the gift of life to someone who wasn't her own child or another fami-ly member. This is certainly radical stewardship. How far would you go to give of yourself so that another might live? Would you have to love him or her like your own child or parent? No one can deny it would be a difficult decision, especially if your giving put your own health at risk. Reflecting on these things helps to provide some perspective on the crucifixion of Jesus. Not only did he suffer tremendously at the hands of the Romans, he gave his life for us so we might live forever. What does true stewardship look like? The cross is a symbol to us of total surrender. When we are called to give of ourselves in ordinary ways in daily life we sometimes hesitate and think twice. Perhaps when we are unsure we should look to the cross and there we can find our strength. And then when the call comes to truly sacrifice and place our trust in God, we may have already developed a lifestyle that makes responding, "yes," that much easier. Tracy Earl Welliver, MTS

WHY DO WE DO THAT? - CATHO-LIC LIFE EX-PLAINED
Question: Where do Palm Sunday palms come from and where should they go? Answer: The Palm Sunday cele-bration has ancient origins. Beginning the liturgy "outside" the church, we sym-bolically reenact Christ's entry into Jerusalem. The crowds in ancient Israel waved palm branches - a symbol of royalty - to welcome Jesus. These days, obtain-ing palms takes a lot of planning and co-ordination, as hun-dreds of thousands of churches worldwide need them on the same day! Many in the United States order palms from Florida, California, Texas, or Central America. Many companies stress the sustainability of their production and the just wages paid to their work-ers. The palms used on Palm Sunday are blessed at Mass. This means they shouldn't end up in the trash! Many people weave palms into crosses or families display them in their homes. If you do not plan on displaying your palms throughout the year, they should be burned, bur-ied, or left at the church. In the final case, the palms are burned to provide the ashes for next year's Ash Wednesday service.
Do you have an idea that might enhance parish life? A suggestion to enhance the building atmosphere of the parish? Do you see a need for repair somewhere in the church? NEW! At the back of each parish you will find a Share
Board. If you have an idea to share, simply take a card from the board, complete it and drop it into the collection
basket for delivery to the Administration Office! Ideas will be brought to the attention of the buildings and grounds committee of the parish, and to the parish
council to determine what actions need or can be taken.
