Schneider, CAP Office/Business Manager/Fund Raiser Mr. Michael Brennan Bulletin Editor BLESSING OF THROATS ON FEAST OF ST. BLAISE FEB. 3 During the 11:30 a.m. Catholic Masses at O Hare and Midway this Tuesday, Feb. 3, there will be a special blessing of the throats for the Feast of St. Blaise. St. Blaise was a 4th century bishop of Sebaste (modern Armenia). We know more about the devotion to St. Blaise by Christians around the world than we know about the saint himself, according to Leonard Foley, OFM, in Saint of the Day (revised by Pat McCloskey, O.F.M.) His feast is observed as a holy day in some Eastern Churches. The Council of Oxford, in 1222, prohibited servile labor in England on Blaise s feast day. The Germans and Slavs hold him in special honor, and for decades many United States Catholics have sought the annual St. Blaise blessing for their throats. We know that Bishop Blaise was martyred in his episcopal city of Sebastea, Armenia, in 316. The legendary Acts of St. Blaise were written 400 years later. According to them Blaise was a good bishop, working hard to encourage the spiritual and physical health of his people. Although the Edict of Toleration (311), granting freedom of worship in the Roman Empire, was already five years old, persecution still raged in Armenia. Blaise was apparently forced to flee to the back country. There he lived as a hermit in solitude and prayer, but he made friends with the wild animals. One day a group of hunters seeking wild animals for the amphitheater stumbled upon Blaise s cave. They were first surprised and then frightened. The bishop was kneeling in prayer surrounded by patiently waiting wolves, lions and bears. As the hunters hauled Blaise off to prison, the legend has it, a mother came with her young son who had a fish bone lodged in his throat. At Blaise s command the child was able to cough up the bone. Agricolaus, governor of Cappadocia, tried to persuade Blaise to sacrifice to pagan idols. The first time Blaise refused, he was beaten. The next time he was suspended from a tree and his flesh torn with iron combs or rakes. (English wool combers, who used similar iron combs, took Blaise as their patron. They could easily appreciate the agony the saint underwent.) Finally, he was beheaded. WORLD DAY OF THE SICK FEB. 11 The O Hare & Midway Airport Chapels will observe World Day of the Sick & Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes (Patroness of the Infirm) at the 11:30 a.m. Mass Wednesday, Feb. 11. The service will include a Communal Celebration of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. This is a day when many Catholics bring their sick or infirm family members to the church for prayers and for them to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. In this spirit, we will celebrate this Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick as an airport community on February 11, the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes. Those who can benefit from this sacrament: Someone whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age. Those who are chronically ill or have a serious health condition (e.g. diabetes). Someone who will be undergoing surgery, if the surgery is caused by a serious illness. Elderly people who have become notably weakened, even though no serious illness is present. Seriously ill children who have sufficient use or reason to be strengthened by the sacrament. Those who have been anointed if they relapse after recovery or if the condition becomes more serious. Those who have any emotional, mental or physical illness. For more information call or

2 Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time February 1, 2015 Come, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the Lord who made us. Psalm 95:6 AUTHORITY FROM GOD According to Moses, the people decided they didn t want to hear God s voice directly any more. It was much too frightening. Why couldn t God send human teachers, prophets, instead? God agreed, but with a warning. The people had better listen to those teachers, because they spoke in God s name. That arrangement, though, had its own problems, for them and for us. How do I know this teacher is truly from God? And if the teacher is from God, are all parts of the teaching meant for me? We have the Church and scripture to help us with those questions, but still there are always a few loose ends. That is the powerful significance of the sentence in today s Gospel: The people were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes. The people knew that this Jesus was authentic truly a teacher sent by God. They knew it by hearing him. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.

An ambry is a cabinet, often beautifully ornamented and kept near the baptistery in the church. Olive oil, with no fragrance added, is blessed at the Chrism Mass in Holy Week by the bishop, although there is now a provision for a priest to bless oil if none is available. This restores to our Latin Rite practice a tradition never lost in the Eastern tradition, in which priests consecrate the oil of the sick, even at the sick person s home. Any vegetable oil may be used now, since olive oil is difficult to obtain in some places. Many priests keep a small supply of oil close at hand in a small metal tube called a stock. In the former rite, every sense of the body was anointed, accompanied by a prayer for forgiveness of sin. So, the eyes, ears, nostrils, mouth, hands, and feet were all touched. Today, this is simplified to an anointing of the forehead and the hands, but generally today the oil is used more lavishly, and the symbolism of touch so central to the rite is enhanced. Often, a priest will invite everyone present to join in the laying on of hands. Sick persons are often pushed aside or feared in our culture, and to be reverently touched in love can be a profound experience of God s healing, forgiving, accepting presence through the ministry of the Church. Rev. James Field, Copyright J. S. Paluch Co. This Week in the Life of the Church Being a compendium of feast days and notable events in Church history. Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Feb. 1, 2015 We Remember: ST. BRIGID, first Irish abbess, was born about 450 in eastern Ireland, near Dundalk, and is said to have been baptized by St. Patrick. "Her memory, as it lived in the hearts of the people, was identified with an extraordinary spirit of charity," says Butler's, and she is much beloved in Ireland to this day. "In Ireland the churches dedicated to her are innumerable; in England we know of nineteen pre- Reformation dedications." Called the Mary of the Gael, her life is shrouded in folklore, but we do know that about 470 she founded a double monastery of women and men at Cill-Dara (Kildare) and was abbess of the convent, the first in Ireland. "The foundation developed into a center of learning and spirituality, and around it grew up the cathedral city of Kildare," says Delaney. St. Brigid's hospitality, compassion and care for the poor are remembered, and she is buried at Downpatrick with St. Columba and St. Patrick, with whom she is the patron saint of Ireland. (E,B,G,P) Monday, Feb. 2, Presentation of the Lord We Remember: The PRESENTATION OF THE LORD, formerly called the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also Candlemas, commemorates the presentation of Jesus in the Temple - according to prescriptions of Mosaic Law (Lv. 12:2-8; Ex. 13:2; Lk. 2:22-32) - and the purification of Mary 40 days after His birth. "In the East, where the feast antedated 4th Century testimony regarding its existence, it was observed primarily as a feast of Our Lord; in the West, where it was adopted later, it was regarded more as a feast of Mary, until the calendar in effect since Its date was set for Feb. 2 after the celebration of Christmas was fixed for Dec. 25, late in the 4th century. The blessing of candles, probably in commemoration of Christ who was the Light to enlighten the Gentiles, became common about the 11th century and gave the feast the secondary name of Candlemas." (Catholic Almanac) In the Old Testament, purification rites cleansed people who had contracted a legal uncleanness through an impurity such as a skin disease, or though contact with the divine, as in childbirth, says Encyclopedia of Catholicism. Jesus Christ emphasized the importance of faith and loving service of brothers and sisters rather than ritual purifications. The second chapter of the Gospel of Luke is proclaimed, in which Simeon calls Jesus a light to the nations. The use of candles was introduced in Jerusalem in the mid-fifth century by a Roman matron. Although the Christmas season officially ends after the Epiphany (January 6) with the feast of Our Lord s Baptism, Candlemas is sometimes identified as the formal ending of the Christmas cycle. In 1522, Pope Leo X bestowed the title "Defender of the Faith" on King Henry VIII of England. Henry had written a treatise on the seven sacraments in 1521 refuting Martin Luther's theology - a treatise said to be written by Thomas More, who Henry would eventually execute. By 1534, the king would pursue an anti-papal, moderately Lutheran course of reform after his excommunication by another pope, Clement VII. Clement had refused to grant the king an annulment, but nonetheless Henry divorced Catherine of Aragon and married Anne Boleyn in 1533, which precipitated the break between the Church of England and the papacy. Henry declared himself "supreme head of the Church of England." Many Catholics were persecuted, and between , pressed for money, Henry ordered the confiscation of more than 300 English monasteries, many ultimately destroyed. In 1544, Parliament authorized the title of "Defender of the Faith" for Henry and his successors - including the present monarch. Henry died in (E) ALFRED DELP ( ), Jesuit priest and martyr, was arrested by the Gestapo in "My offense is that I believed in Germany and her eventual emergence from this dark hour of error and distress, that I refused to accept that accumulation of arrogance, pride, and force that is the Nazi way of life, and that I did this as a Christian and a Jesuit," he wrote. Imprisoned in chains in a dark cell, he wrote a final message to friends: "If through one man's life there is a little more love and kindness, a little more light and truth in the world, then he will not have lived in vain." Father Delp was hanged in the Plotzensee prison on this day in (AS)

3 Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015 We Remember: The feast of ST. BLAISE (died c. 316), bishop and martyr, has for centuries included the Blessing of Throats, the practice of placing two crossed candles, accompanied by the recitation of a prayer, on the throats of the faithful. St. Blaise was a 4th century bishop of Sebaste (modern Armenia), according to the HarperCollins Encyclopedia of Catholicism. "When Diocletian ordered the persecution of Christians, Blaise hid in a forest. Legend describes wild animals gathering in his cave where, unharmed, he fed them all. When hunters came upon his hiding place and saw him surrounded by lions and bears, they decided he was a magician and took him captive. While in prison, he saved the life of a boy who was choking on a fishbone. The boy's mother rewarded Blaise with food and candles. Blaise was later beheaded. After his martyrdom he was invoked, as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers, on behalf of people suffering from throat infections." The blessing of throats began in the 16th century when veneration for St. Blaise was at its peak. Today we also commemorate ST. ANSGAR ( ), the first Christian missionary to Scandinavia, called "The Apostle of the North;" he was a French monk named bishop and papal legate to all Scandinavian lands. His success was due to his great preaching ability, the austerity and holiness of is life, and the miracles he is reputed to have performed. (E,V) In 590, Pope Gregory the Great sent St. Augustine to convert the Anglo-Saxons. In 993, ST. ULRIC OF AUGSBURG became the first saint canonized by a pope - Pope John XV - of which there is record, at the Lateran Basilica in Rome during a synod of bishops. Ulric became bishop of Augsburg, Germany, in 923, at the age of 33, and served until his death 50 years later. At one point, Augsburg was almost totally destroyed during a war with Hungary. Ulric led the rebuilding and also built a new cathedral to replace his ravaged church. During this terrible war, he cared for many refugees and hospitalized victims each day. Because of these kind and heroic acts, St. Ulric is the patron of pilgrims and the dying. His feast day is July 4. For an interesting examination of how the Catholic Church determines who becames a saint, who doesn t, and why, read Kenneth L. Woodward s Making Saints. (W) The feast of ST. AELRED OF RIEVAULX ( ) is observed today in Cistercian monasteries. During the term of this great abbot, the Abbey of Rievaulx grew to include more than 600 monks, making it the largest religious community in England. The monastery was one of the casualties of Henry VIII s reign. Aelred died January 12, (AS) In 1518, Pope Leo X imposed silence on the Augustinian monks - the religious order Martin Luther belonged to. In 1985, Desmond Tutu became Johannesburg's first black Anglican bishop. "There is something uniquely valuable that women and men bring to the ordained ministry, and it has been distorted and defective as long as women have been debarred," says Archbishop Tutu. "Somehow men have been less human for this loss." Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015 We Remember: ST. ANDREW CORSINI ( ) was born in Florence. Before he was born, his mother dreamed she gave birth to a wolf that turned into a lamb when it entered a Carmelite church, and thus was the path of Andrew Corsini. His youth was violent and dissolute, but in 1318 he joined the Carmelites, studied in Paris and Avignon, and embarked on a life of austere penance. Known as a father of the poor and a mediator between quarrelsome Italian states of that time, Andrew became a bishop in A patron of peacemakers, he is also invoked against sudden death and quarrels. (B) ST. JANE OF VALOIS ( ), though daughter of a king, suffered humiliation and banishment from the palace because her father had wanted a son, and because she was deformed. On top of that, she was married against her desire to Louis, Duke of Orleans became king of France and promptly separated from Jane, obtaining an annulment. But at an early age, Jane had offered her heart to God, and longed to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in some special way. Grateful that she went away quietly, the king gave his wife a lot of property. She retired to a life of deep prayer at Bourges, giving her great revenues to charity. Five hundred years ago, in 1500, with her spiritual director, the Franciscan Bl. Gabriel Mary, she founded the order of nuns of the Annunciation. Jane built and endowed the first convent of the new Order and died in There was one last indignity visited upon her in death - the Huguenots burned her remains in She was canonized by Pope Clement XII in (B) ST. GILBERT OF SEMPRINGHAM ( ) died on this day in 1189, more than 100 years old. Son of Norman knight and English mother, we remember him as the founder of the only religious order to originate in England - the Gilbertine Order. At first it was for nuns, but gradually lay brothers, sisters and canons regular were added. The two sexes lived in separate enclosures with a sealed window between them, and used a common church with two aisles separated by a wall running from west to east, says OCY. The Gilbertines grew to 26 monasteries and the Order spread over the diocese of Lincoln, but not much outside it; a Scottish foundation failed, an invitation to Rome was languidly received. In consequence the Order, in steady decline after the Black Death, had no foreign branches to perpetuate its existence after the Dissolution of the Monasteries under King Henry VIII in the sixteenth century. Gilbert was canonized by Pope Innocent III in (OCY, B) ST. JOHN OF BRITTO ( ), patron of Portugal, was a great Jesuit missionary to the people of India. His methods were unconventional and enlightened - for example, he adopted the dress, diet, and lifestyle of the locals, inasmuch as possible. Many times John and his Indian catechists were subjected to brutal violence, but he survived these attacks and made friends at court, converting the rajah - whom he persuaded to divest himself of his youngest wife. The deposed woman complained to the Hindu clergy, and eventually, after refusing to leave the country, John was captured, tortured and executed. He was canonized in (B) In 1906, the birth of DIETRICH BONHOEFFER, Lutheran theologian, pastor, hanged by the Nazis in 1945 at Flossenburg death camp for his alleged involvement in the attempted assassination of Hitler. "This is the end - for me, the beginning of life," he told friend and fellow prisoner British officer Payne Best. Bonhoeffer received his theological education at Tubingen, Rome and Berlin, and subsequently lectured at Union Theological Seminary, New York, and at the University of Berlin. From the start, Bonhoeffer opposed the Nazi movement and sided with the Confessing Church, for whom he headed a new seminary at Finkenwalde. For his association with the resistance to Hitler and a link with the failed assassination attempt on the Fuhrer, he was arrested in 1943 and later executed. In his theological thought, which matured in prison, he sought to speak in a secular way to secular society about God; this comes across in Letters and Papers from Prison (1953). He had an enduring interest in ecumenism and a link with the United Kingdom through his friendship with Bishop Bell of Chichester. Thursday, Feb. 5, St. Agatha We Remember: ST. AGATHA, Virgin and Martyr, died about the year 251. She is patroness of nurses and invoked against breast diseases, fires, and volcanic eruptions. Her name in Greek means "good." The story of Agatha's martyrdom during the persecution of Decius at Catania in Sicily is quite graphic. Though many renounced their faith, especially officials, Agatha was among those whose steadfast devotion to Christ cost them their lives. The devotion of numerous popes to St. Agatha is possibly based on the legend that St. Peter appeared to her to console and heal her. She had been tortured on the rack and her breasts had been cut off. A few days later she was rolled naked over burning coals. Her last prayer to Christ was "Receive my soul," after which she breathed her last. Devotion to St. Agatha is very ancient. A church was constructed in her honor at Rome in the fifth century, and at the beginning of the sixth century, Pope Symmacus introduced her feast into the liturgy at Rome and dedicated a basilica in her honor. The inclusion of her name in the Roman Canon of the Mass is attributed to St. Gregory the Great, and to this day she is listed in the first Eucharistic Prayer. (S) On this day, AMERICAN BAPTISTS celebrate the arrival in the New World of Roger Williams, who with four companions was subsequently expelled from Massachusetts and settled in Rhode Island; the five families formed the first Baptist community there. (OCY) In 1837, the birth of American evangelistic preacher DWIGHT MOODY ( ), founder of what is now the Moody Bible Institute, 1609 N. LaSalle Drive, Chicago. In 1856 he went to Chicago, where he engaged in mission and Sunday-school work with great enthusiasm. During the Civil War, he was employed by the Christian Commission, and afterward by the Young Men s Christian Association in Chicago. A church was built to accommodate his work and he became its unordained pastor. In the fire of 1871 the church was destroyed, but a much larger one has been erected. [E.B. Sanford in the 1890 Cyclopedia of Religious Knowledge.] He first came to national prominence as a result of a successful evangelical tour of England ( ), traveling with Ira David Sankey, with whom he composed the Sankey-Moody Hymn Book (1873), says the HarperCollins Dictionary of Religion. Moody anticipated many of the tenets of later Christian fundamentalism, most particularly its antipathy to higher criticism of the Bible. This later concern was institutionalized in 1889 in Moody s Chicago Bible Institute, now known as the Moody Bible Institute. He died Dec. 22, 1899, and his funeral was conducted Dec. 26 by C.I. Scofield; he was laid to rest atop Northfield s (Massachusetts) Mount Hermon.

4 First Friday, Feb. 6, 2015 We Remember: ST. DOROTHY is identified by apocryphal tradition as a resident of Caesarea, Cappadocia. When she refused to sacrifice to the gods during Diocletian s persecution of the Christians, she was tortured by the governor and ordered executed. On the way to the place of execution, she met a young lawyer, Theophilus, who mockingly asked her to send him fruits from the garden she had joyously announced she would soon be in. When she knelt for her execution, she prayed, and an angel appeared with a basket of three roses and three apples, which she sent to Theophilus, telling him she would meet him in the garden. Theophilus was converted to Christianity and later martyred. (P) ST. WARREN (+1159) (his Latin name is Guarinus), an illustrious cardinal, Bishop of Palestrina and a member of the Order of St. Augustine is also honored today. ST. PAUL MIKI AND COMPANIONS were 26 martyrs, the first canonized saints of the Far East, who died some 400 years ago. Paul, born in 1556, came from a noble family in Kyoto which` converted to Christianity; he was baptized when he was five years old. Son of a Japanese military chief, Paul was educated at a Jesuit college and joined the Jesuits in 1580, becoming known for his eloquent preaching. In 1597 he was crucified along with 25 other Catholics during the persecution of Christians near Nagasaki. The group was made up of six Franciscans (from Spain, Mexico and India), three Japanese Jesuit catechists (including Paul Miki), and 17 Japanese lay Catholics. They were all crucified by being attached to crosses with ropes and chains and then put to death by the thrust of a lance. From his cross Paul proclaimed, "As I come to this supreme moment of my life, I am sure none of you would suppose that I want to deceive you. And so I tell you plainly: there is no way to be saved except the Christian way." At his death, St. Paul Miki said, "I hope my blood will fall on my fellow men as fruitful rain." So fruitful was the rain of his blood on the hills of Nagasaki that missionaries 265 years later discovered thousands of secret Christians there. In 1862 they were all canonized as the Martyrs of Japan. (S,D,P) In 1944, on this feast of the Martyrs of Japan, 65 American Divine Word missionaries died aboard a Japanese prison ship. The priests, brothers, and sisters, who had been forced from their mission posts throughout the Far East, were among the victims of a mistaken attack by a U.S. aircraft whose pilot thought he was attacking a warship. (W) In 1740, the death of POPE CLEMENT XII in Rome; a great promoter of missionary activity, Clement commissioned the building of Rome s famed Trevi Fountain. (W) Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015 We Remember: a Greek farmer, ST. LUKE THE YOUNGER (DIED 946), who was admitted as a novice to a monastery at Athens, and became a solitary on Mt. Joannitza, near Corinth. He worked so many miracles in this place that it was known as Soterion (place of healing) and he himself as the Thaumaturgus (Wonderworker). As a boy, Luke would often give his clothes to beggars or go without a meal to feed the hungry. When he sowed the fields, he would scatter half the seed over the land of the poor - yet he would notice that the Lord blessed his father's crops with abundant increase. Luke wanted to become a monk but his family was unwilling to let him go. But when the family offered hospitality to two monks who were on pilgrimage from Rome to the Holy Land, the monks persuaded Luke's family to allow him to travel with them to Athens. He was 18 when he built himself a hermitage at Mt. Joannitza. (B,L) In 590, the death of the second German pope, PELAGIUS II, during whose reign the first controversy between what became the Eastern and Western Churches began over the title "ecumenical patriarch," used by bishops of Constantinople from the late 5th century. Originally with the meaning "supreme within his own patriarchate," Pelagius felt the title infringed on papal supremacy and called upon his nuncio Gregory (who succeeded him and is known to us as GREGORY THE GREAT) to break off communion with Patriarch John IV. Ultimately, the Orthodox Churches of Eastern rites remained in communion with the Holy See until the SCHISM OF 1054; the ex-communications imposed by the two churches on each other at that time were mutually nullified in In Rome, Pelagius was an active builder and restorer, and he is remembered for building the high altar of the original St. Peter's Church over the Apostle's tomb. When the bubonic plague ravaged Rome as a result of flooding caused by an overflow of the Tiber, he was one of its first victims. (A,O,W) In 1909, the birth of DOM HELDER CAMARA, archbishop of Recife in Brazil; a courageous and prophetic bishop who served as one of the century's "great apostles of Christian non-violence," says Ellsberg. "He has embodied the church's option for the poor and defined through his actions the intimate relationship between love and justice." He died in In 1985, the deaths of FR. JOHN ROSSITER, FERDINAND ROTH, SR., and WILLIAM HAMMES in Onalaska, Wisconsin. While the priest, pastor of St. Patrick's Parish, and the two laymen were conferring in the church this day, a disgruntled parishioner entered the building and shot the three men to death. The killer was upset and obsessed with the fact that Fr. Rossiter allowed schoolgirls to read the lessons during Mass in the parish. The Grim Reaper s Book of Days.
