Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” Then the devil took Him to the holy city and had Him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'” Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'”

Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.'” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

A CHRISTMAS REPRISE

The Church's celebration three weeks ago Baptism of the Lord signaled the "official" end of the Christmas season. Today's feast of the Presentation of the Lord seems to extend the Incarnation celebration a bit longer. In fact, some have called this feast a "Second Epiphany."

The first reading recalls the anticipation of Advent, as Malachi writes, "Lo, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me." The reading from Hebrews reminds us of the Incarnation, proclaiming that Jesus had a "share" in our own "blood and flesh." The Gospel finds the infant Jesus on his first visit to Jerusalem and his human parents once again surprised and in awe over the events surround his birth.

In the simplicity of the manger, in the grandeur of the temple, in the domesticity of Nazareth, Jesus comes. May we come to know him and so be filled with "wisdom" and the "favor of God."

Throat Blessing - Monday,February 3

Monday, February 3, is the feast of St. Blaise. Tradition says that St. Blaise was a bishop in the fourth century in Armenia and he is said to have healed a young boy who was choking from a fish bone caught in his throat. On his feast day it is the custom to bless throats. Fr. Sosa will bless throats at the 12:10pm mass.

El Lunes 3 de Febrero, es la fiesta de San Blas. La tradición dice que San Blas era obispo en el 4 siglo en Armenia. Se dice que el sanó a un muchacho que estaba ahogándose por un huesito de pescado en la gargantas. Padre Sosa va bendecir las gargantas en las Misa del 12:10pm.

RETORNO A LA NAVIDAD

La celebración de hace tres semanas del Bautismo del Señor señaló el fin "oficial" del tiempo de Navidad para la Iglesia. La fiesta de hoy de la Presentación del Señor parece extender la celebración un poco más allá. En realidad algunos han nombrado esta fiest una "Segunda Epifania".

La primera lectura nos recuerda la anticipación del Adviento, como escribe Malaquías: "Envío a mi mensajero para que prepare el camino ante mí." La lectura de los Hebreos nos recuerda la Encarnación, proclamando que Jesús tuvo una "parte" de la misma "came y sangre." El Evangelio encuentra al niño Jesús en su primera visita a Jerusalén, y a sus padres una vez más sorprendidos y asombrados por los acontecimientos de su nacimiento.

En la sencillez del pesebre, en la grandeza del templo, en la domesticidad de Nazaret, Jesús viene. ¡Que lleguemos a conocerlo y por ello nos encontremos llenos de "sabiduría y de la "gracia de Dios!" Copyright© J.S.Paluch Co.

Prayer Before Surgery

Loving Father, I entrust myself to your care this day;
guide with wisdom and skill
the minds and hands of the medical people
who minister in your Name,
and grant that every cause of illness be removed,
I may be restored to soundness of health
and learn to live in more perfect harmony
with you and with those around me.
Through Jesus Christ.
Amen.

Into your hands,
I commend my body and my soul.
Amen.
