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. .
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.
(Reflection on Sunday
"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.
Middle School Fun Day is for those in grades 6 - 8 only.
Should you have any questions or would need more information,
please contact Jason and Diane Jacinto, Youth Moderators at 572-4623
