THIRD SUNDAY IN LENT - March 19th

REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READING: Jesus satisfies our thirst for eternal life.  Through his Spirit his grace has been poured into our hearts.  God satisfies the thirst of the Israelites whose hearts had become hardened and rebellious.   .      

 

On Friday, March 10th from 3 pm to 6 pm, the Maui Christian Churches will be joining forces by holding a rally at the corner of Ka’ahumanu Avenue and Kane Street in Kahului.  Showing our opposition on physician-assisted suicide that is pending in the state legislature. The Bishop is asking all Catholics to join in this rally.  Please attend if you can, as our government representatives need to be shown that this is not what the people want for Hawaii. If you have already signed the petition against the Physician-assisted Suicide Bill, thank you.  If not, please do so at the back of the Church today. “MMM” T-Shirts, standing for Maui’s Moral Majority are $8 and can be ordered at the parish office.  We encourage you to wear this T-shirt at the Rally on March 10th.  Thank you for taking a moral stand for Christian values on the dignity of life.  

The full letter from the Bishop can be found here.

 

 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"A spring of water welling up to eternal life"

Would you do a favor for someone who snubbed you or treated you like an enemy? Jesus did just that and more! He treated the Samaritans, the sworn enemies of the Jews, with great kindness and respect. The Samaritans who lived in middle region of Israel between Galilee and Judaea and the Jews who lived in the rest of the land of Israel had been divided for centuries. They had no dealings with one another, avoiding all social contact, even trade, and inter-marriage. If their paths crossed it would not be unusual for hostility to break out.
