First Sunday of lent
Lent in the Year of Mercy The primary pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. All of these are intended to turn our hearts back to God and prepare us for the celebration of Christ’s resurrection at Easter. In this Year of Mercy, it is good to take time to review the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Our Cathedral community practices these works through various ministries throughout the year.

Christ the King School Christ the King School creates a nurturing, Christ-centered environment based on its Catholic tradition of fostering academic excellence, individual responsibility, spirituality, and growth of the whole child, in order to spread the Good News of Jesus in word and deed.
Tricia Ward, Principal • 404-267-3669 • www.christking.org CKS Peacemakers Each year, Christ the King School recognizes students from each homeroom who have been outstanding role models for initiating just solutions in the classroom and on the playground. This coveted award is very special to students, because the recipients are selected by their peers. To be eligible, students must be honest, thoughtful, loyal, and display a generous spirit. They must live by the virtues taught at CKS and encourage others to be the Lord’s messengers of peace and hope in the world. Congratulations to all those who were recognized as Peacemakers this year.
What is an Active Parishioner? Our parishioners are often asking us to verify that they are an “active practicing Catholic.” The question of parishioner status is important because this question comes up in many circumstances such as
Certification as godparents and sponsors for Baptisms and Confirmation Active parishioner tuition rates in Catholic schools Marriage/Baptism preparation Scheduling of the facilities for services such as Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals Enrolling children in our programs
In practice, Parishioner verification is done by looking equally at three criteria: Registration, Regular Mass Attendance, and Financial and Time Support.
Cullum Owings Scholarship A special part of the Peace and Justice Mass is the presentation of the Cullum Owings Scholarship. Cullum attended CKS from kindergarten through sixth grade and was known for his well-rounded personality, embracing academic, athletic and social interests with balanced energy. He was compassionate, kind to all, and displayed a natural leadership ability inside and outside the classroom. This wonderful young man was fatally injured in a traffic accident, while returning from Thanksgiving break to finish his senior year of college in 2002. Friends of the Owings family established the Cullum Owings Scholarship at CKS to ensure that his spirit and memory remain alive in our community.
If you have any questions regarding the parishioner verification process, please contact Amanda Vergenz at [email protected]
Msgr. Frank McNamee encourages you to be an active member of our parish. Your parish – and your own faith life – is enriched and strengthened by the participation of our members!
At the Peace and Justice Mass, Cullum’s scholarship is awarded to a fifth grade girl and a fifth grade boy, who embody Cullum’s wonderful character and who plan to complete the sixth grade at CKS. Congratulations to the 2016 Cullum Owings Scholarship presented to Grace Bradley and Will Fligg. 5

¿Qué significa "entrar en la Cuaresma"? La «cruz», por más pesada que sea, no es una desgracia que hay que evitar lo más posible, sino una oportunidad para seguir a Jesús. Este miércoles, con el ayuno y el rito de las cenizas, entramos en la Cuaresma. Pero, ¿qué significa "entrar en la Cuaresma"? Significa comenzar un tiempo de particular compromiso en el combate espiritual que nos opone al mal presente en el mundo, en cada uno de nosotros y a nuestro alrededor. Quiere decir mirar al mal cara a cara y disponerse a luchar contra sus efectos, sobre todo contra sus causas, hasta la causa última, que es Satanás. Significa no descargar el problema del mal sobre los demás, sobre la sociedad, o sobre Dios, sino que hay que reconocer las propias responsabilidades y asumirlas conscientemente. En este sentido, resuena entre los cristianos con particular urgencia la invitación de Jesús a cargar cada uno con su propia «cruz» y a seguirle con humildad y confianza (Cf. Mateo 16, 24).

La «cruz», por más pesada que sea, no es sinónimo de desventura, de una desgracia que hay que evitar lo más posible, sino una oportunidad para seguir a Jesús y de este modo alcanzar la fuerza en la lucha contra el pecado y el mal. Entrar en la Cuaresma significa, por tanto, renovar la decisión personal y comunitaria de afrontar el mal junto a Cristo. La Cruz es el único camino que lleva a la victoria del amor sobre el odio, de la generosidad sobre el egoísmo, de la paz sobre la violencia. Desde esta perspectiva, la Cuaresma es verdaderamente una ocasión de intenso compromiso ascético y espiritual fundamentado sobre la gracia de Cristo.

¿Qué es el viacrucis? Es la meditación de los momentos y sufrimientos vividos por Jesús desde que fue hecho prisionero hasta su muerte en la cruz y posterior resurrección. Literalmente, vía crucis significa "camino de la cruz". Al rezarlo, recordamos con amor y agradecimiento lo mucho que Jesús sufrió por salvarnos del pecado durante su pasión y muerte. Dicho camino se representa mediante 15 imágenes de la Pasión que se llaman "estaciones". Te animarás a cargar con las cruces de cada día, si recuerdas con frecuencia las estaciones o pasos de Jesús hasta el Calvario. Promesas para los devotos del Vía Crucis: 1. Yo concederé todo cuanto se me pidiere con fe, durante del Vía Crucis. 2. Yo prometo la vida eterna a los que, de vez en cuando, se aplican a rezar el vía crucis. 3. Durante la vida, yo les acompañare en todo lugar y tendrán Mi ayuda especial en la hora de la muerte. 4. Aunque tengan mas pecados que las hojas de las hierbas que crecen en los campos, y mas que los granos de la arena en el mar, todos serán borrados por medio de esta devoción al Vía Crucis. (Nota esta devoción no elimina la obligación de confesar los pecados mortales. Se debe confesar antes de recibir la santa comunión.) 5. Los que acostumbraran rezar el vía crucis frecuentemente, gozara de una gloria extraordinaria en el cielo. 6.Despues de la muerte, si estos devotos llegasen al purgatorio, yo los librare de ese lugar de expiación . El primer Martes o Viernes después de Morir. 7. Yo bendeciré a estas almas cada vez que rezan el Vía Crucis, y mi bendición les acompañara en todas partes de la tierra. Después de la muerte, gozaran de esta bendición en el cielo, por toda la eternidad. 8. A la hora de la muerte, no permitiré que sean sujetos a la tentación del demonio. Al espíritu maligno le despojare de todo poder sobre las almas. Así podrán reposar tranquilamente en mis brazos. 9.Si rezan con verdadero amor, serán altamente premiados. Es decir, convertiré a cada una de estas almas en copón viviente, donde me complaceré en derramar mi gracia. 10. Fijare la mirada de mis ojos sobre aquellas almas que rezan el viacrucis con frecuencia y mis manos estarán siempre abiertas para protegerlas. 11. Así como yo fui clavado en la cruz, igualmente estaré siempre muy unido a los que me honran, con el rezo frecuente del vía Crucis. 12. Los devotos del vía crucis nunca se separaran de mi porque yo les daré la gracia de jamás cometer un pecado mortal. 13. En la hora de la muerte, yo les consolare con mi presencia, e iremos juntos al cielo. La muerte será para todos los que me han honrado durante la vida con el rezo del vía crucis. 14. Para estos devotos del vía crucis, mi alma será un escudo de protección que siempre les prestara auxilio cuando recurran a mi. Los invitamos a Rezar el vía crucis todos los viernes desde el 12 de Febrero hasta el 25 de Marzo en la Misión de Cristo Rey a las 7PM.
