Ascension Catholic Church - Did you get your Catholic Relief Services rice bowl at Mass yesterday? Or on Ash Wednesday? Father Larry blessed them on Ash Wednesday. If not, or if you'd like another one, we have plenty available at all the doors of the church. This is CRS' 40th year of doing the rice bowl collection during the 40 days! Give. Pray. Fast.
Ascension Catholic Church - The Gospel of Mark says little about how Jesus is tempted in the desert. Notice that yesterday we simply heard that the Spirit sent Jesus into the wilderness, and he was tempted there. Matthew and Luke both spell out what the devil said to Jesus. Mark simply gives this unique detail, "he was among wild beasts." Here, British painter Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) fills the frame with the figure of Christ looking inward, examining a scorpion, facing temptation, strengthening faith. What temptations come at you in these first days of Lent?
Ascension Catholic Church - The reign of God is like the Muslims who ring round a synagogue so that the Jews can pray in safety and peace. From parishioner Kate Kinser.
