  • SAINT ANNE’S CATHOLIC CHURCH BRISTOL, VIRGINIA February 12, 2017 Remember St. Anne’s in your Will and Trusts

    Most of us recall a time when we did only what was

    absolutely necessary to get by. When it comes to our

    Christian life, however, Jesus calls us to a higher standard.

    Perhaps our prayer can be for the grace and the courage to

    go beyond the letter of the law in order to live according to

    a higher law, the law of love.

    Scripture Readings for this Week (Feb. 13-18)

    Monday: Genesis 4:1-15, 25; Mark 8:11-13

    Tuesday: Gn. 6:5-8; 7:1-5, 10; Mark 8:14-21

    Wednesday: Gn. 8:6-13, 20-22; Mark 8:22-26

    Thursday: Genesis 9:1-13; Mark 8:27-33

    Friday: Genesis 11:1-9; Mark 8:34—9:1

    Saturday: Hebrews 11:1-7; Mark 9:2-13

    Scripture for next Sunday (7th Sunday/Ordinary)

    Leviticus 19:1-2, 17-18

    Love your neighbor as yourself.

    1 Corinthians 3:16-23

    “God catches the wise in their own ruses.”

    Matthew 5:38-48

    Love your enemies.

    Notice in next Sunday’s readings that even though Jesus

    quotes common sayings about revenge and hatred for one’s

    enemies, inviting his disciples to live contrary to those

    aphorisms, the first reading says exactly the same as Jesus.

    “You shall not bear hatred for your brother or sister in

    your heart.” What a joy to know that our God of love has

    always invited us to show love for one another, and to

    overcome our fear and hatred!

    ISSUES OF FAITH UNDER THE LAW

    Do you ever wonder how one administrates the law

    when it conflicts with issues of faith? Or, what impact

    does the law have on your faith as an individual?

    Strength in Numbers

    True friends walk together through their weakness.

    Betrayal, gossip, and scandal: these traits often

    characterize friendships portrayed in the entertainment

    industry. What if our friendships, were instead

    marked by support no matter the circumstances?

    Join us as we explore the role of authentic friendships

    and their ability to empower us to greatness.
