March 13, 2011 1st Sunday of Lent Page ThirteenWhat goes around comes around. Biblically speaking,anyway. I mean, depending on where you look--and how you interpret things when you get there--the Book isfilled with passages of one thing foreshadowing another. Forexample, Isaiah’s four “Servant of the Lord” oracles describinga sinless servant who voluntarily suffers to atone for the sins ofhis people foreshadow Jesus, the ultimate fulfillment of Isaiah’sprophecy. Called out of Egypt to the Promised Land at the timeof the Exodus, the people of Israel foreshadow the Holy Family,called out of Egypt to Nazareth after Herod died. Manna, thebread from heaven given to Moses and his people in the desert,foreshadows the Christ, the true Bread of Life come down fromheaven. And Moses’ raising up of a golden serpent in the desertto save all those who looked upon it foreshadows our Lord beingraised up on the cross to save us from our sins.Foreshadowing can also be a reverse sort of thing: Adam, whobrings sin to the world, contrasts with Jesus, who brings salvation;Saul’s persecution of Christians contrasts with Paul’s discipleship;Christ’s threefold do-you-love-me questioning of Petercontrasts with Peter’s threefold denial of Jesus. Again consideringthe Exodus, I agree with something I read once about today’sGospel being the foreshadowed reverse conclusion of earlierevents. While the Israelites complained of hunger, Jesusdoesn’t fall to temptation to feed himself (“If you are the SonGod, command that these stones become loaves of bread”).Support StaffMrs. Dorota Gołda, Parish SecretarySr. Bernadetta Gościniak, Administrative AssistantMs. Elizabeth Ceisel-Mikowska, Bulletin EditorLiturgicalMrs. Betty Hotcaveg, Lector CoordinatorDeacon Irv Hotcaveg, Coordinator of Eucharistic Ministers &Ministers of CareMs. Jane Lohrmann, Homebound Ministers of Care SchedulerParish CouncilMrs. Sophie Kass—President, Mrs. Mary Bucaro, Mr. Stan Mastalerz,Mr. Antonio Supan, Violet Del Vecchio, Tony Mangiaracina, HerbertMarros, Elzbieta Kata, Jan Bobek, and Rob Heidelbauer .

Reynolds (email@example.com)St. Ferdinand ParishWhile the Israelites put God to the test by demanding water,Jesus doesn’t fall to temptation to prove his Godly worth (“Ifyou are the Son of God, throw yourself down…”). And whilethe Israelites worshiped a golden calf, Jesus doesn’t fall to temptationto give the devil homage in return for worldly wealth(“All these I shall give to you, if you will prostrate yourself andworship me”).And what does any of this have to do with us? Well,here we are, embarking on another Lenten journey. We knowthat this holy season calls us to change, but we probably won’tarrive changed at the empty tomb unless we set our hearts on itright here and right now. Keeping this foreshadowing businessin mind, let’s look at these next six weeks as an opportunity torealize a foreshadowed reality. But from which starting point? Ifwe follow the Israelites, we will spend our Lent grumbling, puttingGod to the test, and worshipping whatever false gods comeour way. If we follow Jesus, however, we will stay true to thepath of our discipleship, resisting the temptations of this worldto accomplish the change we seek. If this sounds preachy, forgiveme, and let me be the first to say that I fall short of the idealevery day. Remember with me, though, that Peter fell short justthe same, as did Paul, as did all of the saints on their respectiveways to heaven. What goes around comes around. Biblicallyspeaking, anyway. During Lent and always, may we let the verylife of Christ foreshadow our journey home.Market Day: Mrs. Connie Glorioso, CoordinatorPolish Altar Servers — Fr.
