Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic Church!

gospel of God: “This is the time of
fulfillment. The kingdom of God is
at hand. Repent, and believe in the
gospel.” - Mk 1:14-15
days." Lent is meant to be like our journey
into the desert. Just as Jesus spent these
days fighting with temptation and
ultimately building up his spiritual
strength, we too are called to spend the
next forty days doing battle with the things
that tempt us. We are invited during this holy season to grow in
self-discipline by giving something up for Lent. The long-
standing Christian practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving
are also important elements of this spiritual battle. When we
pray, we open ourselves to the Holy Spirit, thereby squeezing
out any spirit of selfishness or evil that threatens to control our
hearts. When we fast, we exercise the virtue of temperance, or
self-control. This virtue is of tremendous value when we are
tempted to indulge our bodily senses in ways that are not healthy
or holy. And almsgiving--when it is truly generous--also
strengthens us spiritually by shifting our gaze to the needs of
others, even to the point of making a personal sacrifice. Today's
Gospel tells us that Jesus "was among wild beasts, and the
angels ministered to him." What a contrast! The brutal, vicious,
bloodthirsty beasts and the pristine, heavenly angels were both
there at the same time: each with radically different intentions.
And so it is with us. Our reality is also marked by the contrast
between the brutality and vice of sin and the grace and goodness
of faith. During Lent, we acknowledge the battle between good
and evil within our own souls and do what we can to stir up a
victory for goodness. This season of purification can help each
of us to become a better, holier, and therefore happier person.
May we make good use of this, our journey into the desert.
fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays
during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. FASTING: One full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken,
but not to equal a full meal from age 18 until age 59.

Wake up the World, is what Pope Francis has asked us to do in the
special Year of Consecrated Life as we celebrate the Lives of reli-
gious sisters, brothers, and priests, and invite others to consider a
religious vocation. “Religious life out to promote growth in the
church by way of attraction. The church must be attractive. Wake
up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of
acting, of living!...It is wthis witness that I expect of you. Religious
should be men and women who are able to wake the world up.”
