Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This first week of Lent brings us an opportunity to deepen
our relationship with our Lord and God Jesus Christ,
second person of the most Holy Trinity and God Head.
Our Lent begins with two celebrations; this past
Wednesday we had our annual parish fish fry, and this
weekend, February 26th, at The Shannon Rose Irish Pub
1:30 to 4:30 p.m., we will inaugurate our Saint Patrick’s
Day Celebration. Saint Mary’s is privileged to have three
of our parishioners represent the Nutley Irish and Saint
Mary’s Church, traditionally the Irish Parish, in the Saint
Patrick’s Day Parade on March 3rd 2012 at 1 p.m.
Congratulations and God Bless you all, Thomas McEnery
(Grand Marshall), Karen O’Connor (Deputy Grand
Marshall) and Thomas Donohoe (Irishman of the year).

The great saints we celebrate in the beginning weeks of
Lent are examples to us of great asceticism and prayer. I
think that both would be dismayed at how we celebrate
their feast days. They show us how in the secular world we
can still focus our lives on God’s will and not our own
selfish desires as we so often do.
Lent is a great time for us to do some deep personal
reflection. We need to reflect on how we have answered
God’s call to faith. How we have expressed our love for
God towards others. Do we forgive as our Heavenly Father
forgives us? Have we concern for our brothers and sisters
in need? These are just some of our Catholic teachings and
commands given to us by Christ. The Church gives us a
full six weeks to examine our lives and take the
opportunity for further conversion and commitment to our
Christian and baptismal calls.
Each first Friday of the month, we have the enormous
advantage of praying before the Blessed Sacrament, this
can be yours too. Exposition begins in the Chapel right
after 12:10 Mass and continues until 9:00 p.m., with the
last hour being given over to the prayers of the Nocturnal
Adoration Society. Come by to pray before the Lord. It is a
great way to develop our spiritual life and relationship
with God. In the scriptures we have many warnings by
Christ as to the consequences of failing to conform
ourselves to the Christian life and live in imitation of
Christ. May we as a Christian community take our faith
seriously and strive to live our Christian principles not just
in thought but also through word and action. Let us not
fail; lets take this Lenten journey as the opportunity to
reflect, conform and live, as Christ wants us to.

March 23rd @ 8:00 p.m. in Church
What is the Mystery Play?
“JESUS THE HEALER,” written by Father Francis Pompei, ofm, a Franciscan Friar
from Holy Name Province, is a dramatic multi-media presentation of the Passion and Death
of the Lord and healing events in His life. It will be offered here at St. Mary’s Parish on
Friday, March 23 at 8:00 p.m. The Mystery Players are made up of high school teenagers,
two young girls, and several young adults. The performances will be in the tradition of the
medieval Mystery Plays that were frequently sponsored by Franciscans who advocated
popularizing scriptural events.
“JESUS THE HEALER” has no speaking parts. Through the use of special lighting,
inspirational music, drama, and soul-searching meditations, the play helps people get in
touch with their goodness, struggles, and sins. In a very unique way the play becomes a
prayerful vehicle for the Lord’s spirit to forgive, renew, and especially heal.
No matter how many times a person sees the Mystery Play, each viewing experience offers
unique comfort and life perspective. YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS THIS!
