3 Communications from the Bishop World Mission Sunday 2013 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, World Mission Sunday, organized by the Propagation of the Faith, is a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church s missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice. This year, World Mission Sunday will be celebrated on October 20. Each year the needs of the Catholic Church in the missions grow as new dioceses are formed, as new seminaries are opened, as areas devastated by war or natural disaster are rebuilt, and as other areas, long suppressed, are opening up to hear the message of Christ and His Church. That is why the involvement and commitment of Catholics from around the world is so urgently needed. Mission dioceses about 1,000 at this time receive regular annual assistance from the funds collected from this annual appeal. These funds help support catechetical programs, the work of Religious Communities, communication and transportation needs, and the building of chapels, churches, orphanages and schools. Modeling Pope Francis s love for the least among us and fulfilling the call from Christ to love our neighbor, I ask you to support this special collection on World Mission Sunday. Last year the diocese provided $235, to this effort. May the Lord bless you for your generosity. Sincerely yours in Christ, Domingo Mundial de las Misiones 2013 Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo, El domingo mundial de las misiones, organizado por el grupo Propagación de la Fe, es un día dedicado para que católicos alrededor del mundo se comprometan con las actividades misioneras de la Iglesia a través de la oración y el sacrificio. Este año, El domingo mundial de las misiones será celebrado el 20 de octubre. Cada año las necesidades de la Iglesia Católica en las misiones crece, al formarse nuevas diócesis, al abrirse nuevos seminarios, al reconstruirse áreas devastadas por guerras o desastres naturales y al abrirse a escuchar el mensaje de Cristo y su Iglesia otras áreas que han sido oprimidas por largo tiempo. Es por esto que la participación y el compromiso de los católicos alrededor del mundo es urgentemente necesaria. Diócesis misioneras; alrededor de 1000 hasta el día de hoy, reciben asistencia anual regularmente de los fondos recibidos de esta colecta anual. Estos fondos ayudan a apoyar programas de catequesis, el trabajo de Comunidades Religiosas, necesidades de comunicación y transportación y para la construcción de capillas, iglesias, orfanatos y escuelas. Siguiendo el modelo de amor de nuestro Papa Francisco por el más pequeño entre nosotros y realizando el llamado de Cristo a amar a nuestro prójimo, yo le pido que apoye esta colecta especial de El domingo mundial de las misiones. El año pasado esta diócesis aportó $235, a este esfuerzo. Que el Señor bendiga su generosidad. Sinceramente suyo en Cristo, Most Reverend R. Daniel Conlon Bishop of Joliet Monseñor R. Daniel Conlon Obispo de Joliet Special Collection for World Missions on October 19/20 This year we are invited to act in solidarity with missionaries in India and throughout the world. A special collection will be held during next weekend s Masses for World Mission Sunday. Please remember to place both your regular weekly offering and your special collection envelope in the regular collection basket. October 13, 2013 One Family in Faith Making Christ Known Page 3

4 Reflections from Fr. David Here is the second and final part of selections from an outstanding article by Fr. James V. Schall, SJ on Pope Francis recent talk given to catechists. The link to the article is: religion/ /posts?page=7 II. If the first step is to stand before the Master, the second is to imitate Christ in going out of ourselves and meeting others. This advice reflects the Dominican motto, to pass on to others what we ourselves have first contemplated in our hearts through study and silence. To do this is also a beautiful experience and a little paradoxical. To be true to ourselves we have to go out of ourselves. The faith itself (points us in) this direction. In an age in which everything is centered on our rights, our pleasures, our freedom to do whatever we want, to talk about taking the faith to others seems odd. Are we not impinging on others? Yet, we are to receive the faith as a gift and this, not without God s help. We are to give it to others. God is always the center. But He leads us to community, to others. We do what the Lord does. We go out of ourselves to encounter others. This is always the dynamism. We look to Christ, go out to others. We are conscious that we have received, not earned, the gift of faith, that gift we bring to others. As St. Paul said, the love of Christ urges us on. But first this love must possesses us. III. Thus, we are closed beings if our love does not urge us out of ourselves. This indeed is what the modern world is, how it views itself as closed in itself with nothing allowed from the outside. This going out of ourselves brings us to the third aspect of our faith. We should have no fear of doing what we are asked by the Lord to do. These words of Scripture fear not were often invoked by John Paul II Do not be afraid! Francis recalls the story of Jonah to illustrate his point. Jonah was told by God to go to a place to which he did not want to go. So he tried to stay home and escape, but God had other plans which finally brought Jonah to the city, Nineveh, where he did not want to go. Because he made it there, contrary to his own will, the city was saved. We need to go out of our own little scheme of how the world ought to be and recognize that God has His own plan. What are we being taught here? We are not to be afraid to go out from our own circumstances to follow God, because (going out from oneself) is what God always does. If we go to the periphery, to the limits of our civilization, we will find God there before us. God is not rigid. We too are to be creative. Yet, we must be ready to change. Why? To adopt the circumstances in which we Being faithful means outreach to others can announce the Gospel. If we simply are quiet about what we believe, we are like a statue. Pope Francis reminded us that the Church already has enough statues! We are not to be enclosed in our group, in our movements, in our parish, in an ambience where we remain closed. We should have the courage to risk going out of ourselves. Jesus did not say: 'Go forth, arrange things. No, He said, Go forth, I am with you. This is our beauty and our force. God always firsts (primerea) us. He is always there before all else. He is the First and the Last. The Pope tells us that in his diocese of Buenos Aries, there were children who did not even know the Sign of the Cross. When this happens, it is an outskirt that is calling us to teach them. And Jesus is there to help children learn to make the Sign of the Cross. So Pope Francis tells us to be before the Tabernacle and know how to make the Sign of the Cross. The Pope s final words to the catechists are eloquent: Remain with Christ, strive always to be one with Christ, imitate Him in His movements of love, in His going out to meet man, in having the courage to go out into new streets to announce the Gospels. Pope Francis...says many startling things. But at bottom, he wants everyone to know what the faith teaches. And if a young man does not have the gift of faith, he is not turned away, but told to look at the Lord. Nothing more. The Pope, if we read him carefully, is not ignorant of the many obstacles that are out there in the world that make most efforts to do what he urges almost impossible to achieve. Still he is not deterred...francis seems to have bigger fish in mind than teaching the Sign of the Cross. But we begin there. There is a certain restlessness about Francis that does not see Islam, the liberal secularists, the Chinese, the Hindus, or much else as an insurmountable obstacle. He says of himself that he is sometimes naïve, yet when we see how extraordinary it is that modern popes remain in the center of world attention, we wonder. Pope Bergoglio is initially more concerned with rousing the faithful to see and live what they are given in faith. He sees much stagnation in Christian souls that he challenges. Sometimes one is almost exhausted in imagining the feverish activity that the Pope sees as necessary. Yet, the Lord is first. The Holy Father is careful to begin with each one of us before God, not telling God what we think. We are, as it were, waiting for instructions and inspiration. Needless to say, though he is aware of them, this approach bypasses all the evidently central issues of politics and economics to re-establish what is really first.

8 Our Family in Faith International Singing Star, Tatiana (Tajči) to Perform 7:00 PM on Saturday, October 19, 2013 St. Mary Immaculate Parish in Plainfield, IL Imagine for a moment at the age of 19, you became the #1 pop musician in your country with people of all ages jamming your concerts, your records achieving Platinum and Diamond sales, newborns being named after you, and magazines and tabloids filling their pages with stories and photos of you. That was the life of Tatjana Matejaš of Croatia, known as Tajči (TY-chee) to her adoring fans, before she came to America. Shocking her country and peers, Tajči left her pop stardom, glamour, fame, friends and family to come to the United States, alone and unknown at age 21. She came to America to be free of her celebrity, and to find herself. For a while, she fled her image and changed her name. While living in New York, she did menial jobs, studied musical theater and learned to speak English fluently. In her newfound anonymity, Tajči found her answers. Today, Tajči is once again a world renown musician, a Christian singer/songwriter who performs throughout the United States and Europe filling stadiums, concert halls and churches as she sings about her faith and her faith journey. On Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 7:00 p.m., Tajči will perform Let It Be Mary s Story at St. Mary Immaculate Parish. Tatiana Cameron Tajči, in collaboration with Los Angeles based producer Denny Bouchard, adopted and arranged a wide array of musical styles, traditions and ethnic origins into a mesmerizing musical performance. This performance, executed with tremendous artistry and deep sincere spirituality, features Contemporary Christian favorites, Tajči s original songs, Hebrew and Gregorian chants and Classic Hymns. The Concert Event will be free for all those who attend. A good will donation basket will be passed to support Tajči and her mission. In addition, CD s will be available for sale and Tajči will be on hand for photos and signatures following the Concert Event. For more information about Tajči, including sample songs, please visit All are invited - The Legacy of Blessed Pope John Paul II Tuesday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Cana Hall As a parish, we will be working to bring the teachings of Pope John Paul II into our ministries and parish life. Blessed Pope John Paul II's feast day is Tuesday, October 22. To celebrate, we will be having a dinner and a speaker on the Legacy of Pope John Paul II on Tuesday October 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Cana Hall. Our speaker will be Sr. Helena Burns, who is an energetic, relevant sister who presents on various topics using modern media. The event is free and is open to all ages. Babysitting will be provided!

14 Men and Women Knights of Columbus Good Shepherd Council #5573 For all those who work with the elderly: that they may be renewed in wonder and gratitude for those who have been entrusted to their care. We pray to the Lord. Por todos los que trabajan con los ancianos: para que sean renovados con la capacidad para maravillarse y ser agradecidos para quienes han sido encomendados a su cuidado. Roguemos al Señor. Word of Life But at the other end of life, the elderly, they too are the future of a people. A people has a future if it goes forward with both elements: with the young, who have the strength, and things move forward because they do the carrying; and with the elderly because they are the ones who give life s wisdom. And I have often thought that we do the elderly an injustice, we set them aside as if they had nothing to offer us; they have wisdom, life s wisdom, history s wisdom, the homeland s wisdom, the family s wisdom. And we need all this! ~ Pope Francis, Meeting with journalists during flight to Brazil for World Youth Day, July 22, 2013 Palabra de Vida Pero también el otro extremo de la vida, los ancianos, son el futuro de un pueblo. Un pueblo tiene futuro si va adelante con los dos puntos: con los jóvenes, con la fuerza, porque lo llevan adelante; y con los ancianos porque ellos son los que aportan la sabiduría de la vida. Y tantas veces pienso que cometemos una injusticia con los ancianos cuando los dejamos de lado como si ellos no tuviesen nada que aportar; tienen la sabiduría, la sabiduría de la vida, la sabiduría de la historia, la sabiduría de la patria, la sabiduría de la familia. Y tenemos necesidad de estas cosas. ~ Papa Francisco, Encuentro con los periodistas durante el vuelo hacia Brasil para la Jornada Mundial de la Juventud, 22 de julio de 2013 Knights of Columbus Good Shepherd Council #5573 French Toast, Scrambled Eggs and Sausage Breakfast Sunday, October 27, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The Knights of Columbus & Ladies Auxiliary - Good Shepherd Council #5573 will be donating the kitchen labor for a French Toast, Scrambled Eggs and Sausage Breakfast after all the morning Masses.
