    Rectors Corner

    Interruptions! Developing a docile attitude. I am the kind of person who likes to focus completely on a task, be it practicing piano alone, working with my clarinetist friend on chamber music, or reading a book. We can become so focused on the tasks, the goals of our lives that we find interruptions inconvenient. The practices of Lent serve as positive interrup-tions to the routine, and may even involve gentle daily disruptions by the Holy Spirit, as we will, to enter into the following: Prayer. Can I give God permission to inter rupt my day for 15 minutes to pray? To find a quiet place to be alone with Him? A time to accomplish little, really nothing at all, but to sit with Him and his love? Fasting. We fast to remind ourselves to be grateful and to pray. Choosing to go without food or a material comfort, or abstaining from a routine or particular activity is a type of sacrifice. The goal is to arrive at gratitude for gift. We are reminded, through fasting, of contingency: that we are completely reliant upon God for the blessing of life. Almsgiving. The proper response of gratitude is generosity towards others. Encountering those in need, am I able to at least share a name, shake a hand? Am I willing to help agencies that provide assistance, write a check, take a free tour at Catholic Charities (you will be amazed when you do this!), or volunteer? God needs our sacrifice much less than do we. In order to become people with an ever-evolving and deepening spiritual life, we need times to offer sacrifices in prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Lent asks something of uswhat we give, God pays back many times over!

    "Interrupciones! Desarrollando una actitud dcil." Yo soy el tipo de persona a la que le gusta concentrarme completamente en una tarea, como practicando piano solo, trabajando con mi amigo el clarinetista en msica de cmara, o leer un libro. Podemos estar tan concentrados en las tareas, que las metas de nuestras vidas que encontramos la interrupcin inconveniente. Las prcticas de Cuaresma sirven como interrupciones positivas de nuestra rutina, e incluso pueden ser interrupciones diarias por el Espritu Santo, a entrar en el siguiente:

    La oracin. Puedo dar a Dios permiso para interrumpir mi da por 15 minutos para orar? Para encontrar un lugar tranquilo para estar a solas con l? Un poco de tiempo para lograr poco o casi nada, solamente sentarse con l y con su amor?

    El ayuno. Ayunamos para recordarnos a nosotros mismos a ser agradecidos y a orar. Escoger ir sin comida o abstenerse de una rutina o actividad en particular es un tipo de sacrificio. El objetivo es llegar a la gratitud por el regalo. Se nos recuerda, a travs del ayuno, de contingencia: que somos totalmente dependientes de Dios para la bendicin de la vida. La limosna. La respuesta adecuada de la gratitud es la generosidad hacia los dems. Encontrando aquellos en necesidad, soy capaz de, al menos, compartir un nombre o saludar con una mano? Estoy

    dispuesto a ayudar a las agencias que proporcionan asistencia, escribir un cheque, visitar gratuito un lugar como Caridades Catlicas (se sorprender cuando hagas esto!), o voluntario? Dios necesita nuestro sacrificio mucho menos que nosotros. Con el fin de convertirse en personas con una constante evolucin y profundizacin de la vida espiritual, necesitamos momentos para ofrecer sacrificios en la oracin, el ayuno y la limosna. La Cuaresma nos pide algolo que damos, Dios pague muchas veces ms!
