GOD IS WAITING FOR ME…TO RETURN TO HIM.
Imagine for a moment that you are the fig tree of the gospel. You
have failed to produce any fruit for a long time. The orchard owner
says, “Enough! You’re wasting my time and resources! It’s time to cut
We might react to this by blaming the gardener for not giving us
enough attention, or the other trees for overshadowing us and
taking all the rainwater. Is it the fault of the gardener? Is it the
fault of the soil, the sun, or the rain? Of course not! It is OUR fault!
The first step to becoming fruitful is to stop the blame and take
responsibility for how we act. We make the soil unhealthy by what
we give our time to, the prejudices we hold, and our pride. We
exhaust God with our good intentions. We further stunt our growth
by feeding the soil with anger, judgmentalism, envy, laziness, and
gluttony. Rather than finding the blessing in the rain that falls for
our growth, we react with bitterness. We need the nutrients of
prayer and service to enrich our soil. We need the daily watering
that helps us grow closer to God, our Gardener. We thrive when
we allow Jesus, the SUN, to bring us out of darkness and into the
light as we spend more time with Him. God NEVER gives up on us.
God’s mercy makes us all fruitful.

Ask Father Randy, “What is redemptive suffering?” It is the suffering Jesus did which we remember when we pray the Stations of the Cross. Jesus suffered and died for us. He is our redeemer. We join in Jesus’ redemptive suffering when we are suffering because the people we love are suffering, or when we ask Jesus to unite our
suffering to his and use our it to help people know God’s love and mercy.
If you use Facebook and God has put it into your heart to share the faith, you can use Facebook to do so. Simply write one positive thing a week about God and/or the Church. For those who don’t go to Church often, they seldom hear positive things about God and the Church. You can help them hear at least one positive thing.
“We come to confession to be healed. We come to be educated...our soul has constant need of education.”

In Memory Of:
March 24, 2019 3rd Sunday of Lent
Perhaps this Lent you are working hard to stick with your devotions, avoid hamburgers on Fridays, and fight your temptations for soda since you gave it up for Jesus. You are planting seeds in your spiritual life in hopes of growing them into something beautiful and meaningful.
However, you have been trying this approach now for many years, and it is hard to say that much has grown during all that time. You could deduce that what you are doing is not as worthwhile as you once believed. There is no fruit because these things don't matter. Or you could take a real hard look at your life, see where you are planting those seeds, and finally notice what the problem has been all along. WEEDS!
Too often, we plant seeds over and over again in soil that is not rich in nutrients and is filled with weeds. The weeds choke the life out of any growth that comes to the seeds planted. We think that adding good things to our life will change it, and removal of sin will not be necessary. It is like eating two large hamburgers and large fries and believing you won't gain weight because you drank a Diet Coke.
As good stewards who are called to discern how we respond to the call of Jesus Christ, we must be about ripping those weeds out of our lives so the good seeds we plant can grow. For each of us, the weeds are different:
money, ego, sex, greed, etc. If we don't take a good honest look at our lives and make some tough choices, no amount of devotion or good works will make us better disciples. We will simply wait for the next Lent to do the same things all over again.
-Tracy Earl Welliver, MTS Mother’s Day - Community Service Project
The deadline for donations to this project is April 7th.
A collection box is in the gathering area. Full size shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, along with new bath towels, lotion, deodorant, razors for shaving, face masks, nail polish, nail files, bath salts/bombs, scented candles and chocolates would be appreciated. These gift bags will be given to local single moms at Mother’s
Day, who may not typically receive a gift.
Monetary donations can be labeled, “MOPS” and placed in parish secretary’s drop box. Thank you.

St. Ann’s is hosting the Spiritual Adoption Program beginning today. This program offers parishioners the opportunity to spiritually adopt an unborn baby (through a prayer by Archbishop Fulton Sheen) for the next nine months.
You are invited to take home a prayer card available in the Gathering Area and at the side entrance after Masses this weekend. They will also be available on the Pro-Life table in the
Gathering Area the following weekends.
This program will conclude with a Layette Collection at Christmas (after nine months of prayer) for the benefit of pro-life agencies in our area helping expectant mothers. Please make the commitment to pray every
day for an unborn child, for through prayers miracles happen.
