Fourth Sunday of Lent : March 26, 2017
Gospel: Matthew 2:1-12
“Jesus said to Peter and Andrew “Come after Me and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed Him.
Today’s Gospel is about letting go –letting go of our anxieties and fears, letting go of our selfabsorption and need to control, letting go the strings in our lives that tie us down and tie us up from living a life of joyful compassion and selfless generosity.
Christ calls each of us to be “fishers of men” using whatever net we possess, in whatever oceans and seas we find ourselves. In our own poverty, Christ calls us to “fish” for those who are in need; in our own pain Christ calls us to “fish” for those who suffer; in our own despair, Christ calls us to “fish” for those who have lost all hope.
May we find within ourselves and within our means our own “nets” to bring the grace and peace of God to those in our boats.

“Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure — pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

ABCD: Give and You Shall Receive
Our church is a place to pray, to give thanks, to mourn and to celebrate. A place for us all to unite—in need and abundance—to have mercy, lift each other up and ease pain and suffering. A place people turn to in their time of need. We are all instruments of God’s mercy and peace. One church, one family uniting to help those in need.
Thank you to all who have already generously responded to this year’s ABCD. Your support strengthens the ministries that serve our Archdiocese and allow the Church to form new disciples. As Scriptures remind us, Give and it shall be given to you. Your neighbor needs you. You are the answer to someone’s prayers, and together, we are changing lives.
If you have yet to respond to this year’s ABCD, please join us by making a gift now. You can obtain a pledge envelope from the parish office or you can make a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org. Thank you for all that you do and the spirit in which you do it.
