We ask your prayers for our beloved parishioners,
family members, and friends who have
recently died. Our parish family extends
its sympathy and assurance of prayer to
their family, friends, and to all those
mourning the death of a loved one who
died, especially Nelda Ragan and
Mary Birle. May the Lord Jesus sustain
them with His peace.
Please note: Due to early bulletin deadlines, the Easter

Parish News and Upcoming Events
Easter Egg Hunts This Sunday!
Easter Egg Hunts Palm Sunday, March 29th,
after 10 AM and 5 PM Masses. This year, bring
children directly outside and CYO teens will take
them to join their age group!
Don’t Just Be a Bystander!
Because of Easter, St. Mark's
Altar Rosary Society will have its
April meeting and luncheon on the
2nd Monday in April, April 13th,
following the 11 AM Mass and Rosary.
The guest speaker will show attendees how to perform
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
Shroud of Turin Talk
Dr. Larry Mueller, a St. Mark’s parishioner and
thoracic surgeon, will offer an encore presentation from
his unique perspective of “The Shroud of Turin”
on Tuesday, March 31st, from 7 PM to 8:30 PM, here
at St. Mark’s. A thoracic surgeon is a medical doctor
who performs operations on the heart, lungs,
esophagus, and other organs in the chest. You won’t
want to miss this amazing talk!
Explore the Shroud in Detail
A new app, called Shroud 2.0, is available for
iphones and smartphones at
us/app/shroud-2.0/id614248391?mt=8. The app is the
result of a digitalization process that recomposed 1,649
photographs into one single 12 billion pixels image
(72 Gb). These new images of “The Shroud of Turin,”
along with scientific and theological interpretations
prepared with the Diocese of Turin and the
International Center of Sindonology, dispute earlier
findings to date the shroud from between 300 BC and
400 AD, in the era of Christ. The high resolution
image also purportedly shows nail wounds at the wrists
and pinpricks around the brow, consistent with the
"crown of thorns" mockingly pressed onto Christ at the
time of his Crucifixion. While many experts have stood
by a 1988 carbon-14 dating of scraps of the cloth
carried out by labs in Oxford, Zurich and Arizona that
dated it from 1260 to 1390, this testing was done with
infra-red light and spectroscopy (the measurement of
radiation intensity through wavelengths). The tests also
reaffirmed the 1988 findings where traces of dust and
pollen on the shroud could only have come from the
Holy Land.

14. Jesus is placed in the tomb (Matthew 27: 57-60)

In the traditional form of the Stations of the Cross,
however, stations 3, 4, 6, 7, and 9 are not explicitly
biblical. In 1991, St. John Paul II
instituted a new series of fourteen Stations of Cross,
each of which was based on Scripture alone. However,
Pope Francis has reverted to practicing the traditional
form as follows:
1. Jesus is condemned (Luke 23:24)
2. Jesus carries his cross (John 19:17)
3. Jesus falls the first time (By inference from stations 2 & 5)
4. Jesus meets his mother (By inference from John 19:25-27)
5. Simon of Cyrene helps carry the cross (Matthew 27:32)
6. Veronica wipes Jesus’ face (Not recorded in Scripture)
7. Jesus falls a second time (Not recorded in Scripture)
8. Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem (Luke 23:27-31)
9. Jesus falls the third time (Not recorded in Scripture)
10. Jesus is stripped of his garments (John 19:23)
11. Jesus is nailed to the cross (Mark 15:24)
12. Jesus dies on the cross (Mark 15:37)
In 1st Corinthians, St. Paul says, “...but we
preach Christ crucified.” Why does St. Paul preach
Christ crucified? Through the power of the crucified
Christ on the Cross, the bonds of sin and death are
“For I decided to know nothing among you
except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” St. Paul
explains that an empty cross has no power. The
Cross that bears the beaten, ba ered, and bloodied
body of Jesus Christ, however, that Cross is the
“power of God.”
The Crucifix reminds us not only of God's
power, but also His love for us–giving His only
bego en Son up for suffering and death.
