LENT

THE TIME THAT SETS OUR HEART FREE

In the beginning, God calls us into existence. From nothing, He invites dust and ash to take shape and form. They listen to Him and become sun and moon, fish and bird, man and woman …… for His word creates life. However, the word of the creating God is overshadowed by another word from the serpent voice. This voice deceives man and woman into eating the forbidden fruit as the way to have life and they forget they are already given life more than anything can give. They fall into the trap of eventual death and abandon the fullness of life.

Lent is the journey to restore us to God’s original call. It is the season for us to sort out among many voices and still be able to stay true with the original call. Lent is the time that Jesus leads us through multi snares of temptations and delivers us our redemption. Jesus enters the wilderness to face the ancient serpent itself, to show us the way out, and win back our call of life. In this purifying journey of 40 days and nights, Jesus’ followers will have that same opportunity to learn the listening skill to identify where the Devil is and where God is, where a fake life dangles and where the true life resides.

This year, we also have St. Joseph specially to company us. Our Holy Father Francis has invoked this Patron Saint of the Universal Church for 2021. Joseph is the model right next to Mary of how to discern between life and life illusion, to follow God and no other. As the legal spouse of Mary and designated guardian of Jesus, Joseph has been tested. Like the Virgin Mary, he has faced the ancient coiling temptation to choose between the Lord’s message and the message of his own mind. He was pursuing his own family style with earnest desire but turned around to the call to the family life that the Lord has for him.

Please mark on your worship calendar two coming celebrations of St. Joseph. They are March 19 - the Solemnity of St. Joseph, and May 1 - St. Joseph the Worker. Our Parish will celebrate the two feasts with devotion. Please send pictures of this Universal Church Patron that you have in your possession to the Parish at info@mountvirgin.org. We would like to honor his various pictures in our Websites and Facebooks. There are also more resources about this saint for your faith journey at mountvirgin.org. Let us now invoke St. Joseph and the Holy Family to begin our Lenten journey:

St. Joseph, pray for us. Our Lady of Mt. Virgin, pray for us.

Jesus, save us and set us free.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Hung Nguyen, Pastor


ST. JOSEPH, A MAN WHO SET HIS HEART FREE BY LISTENING TO GOD'S CALLING

A year of St. Joseph

December 8 2020 to December 8 2021

WELCOME BACK TO MASS

Archbishop Paul D. Etienne welcomes people back to Mass.

Governor Jay Inslee issued a new directive on May 27 permitting religious and faith-based organizations to hold services within strict requirements. The Washington State Catholic Conference bishops have provided parishes with guidance for safely and correctly reopening in accordance with the governor's direction.

Our Lady of Mount Virgin started publicly celebrating Mass on weekends. Mass looks, feels, and sounds different. Following these protocols, however, will allow us to be together in a safe and healthy way. We will all need to follow these guidelines carefully to continue to have public Mass.

My sincere thanks to your Parish Safety Team who has made our Parish reopening Masses possible. These are trained and dedicated members of our Parish who have come together to learn and establish procedures according the Archdiocese and WA State guidelines. They consistently carry out those safety procedures from the time of registration, to the day of set up and clean up for each Mass. They do not only offer their talent and labor; they also donate safety supplies with other donors as well. In this unusual time, we have received unusual gift – Our Parish Safety Team and their collaborating efforts.
