2 Page Two Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time October 14, 2007 THREE DIMENSIONAL HOLINESS : St. Teresa of Avila Saints are real people. Some are simple, others brilliant. Some have charm and charisma, others are nervous or even neurotic. Some wear sanctity like a very conventional halo, others wear sanctity like a jester's cap. Some saints, like Therese of Lisieux, are sweet and gentle. Others like Jerome are grouchy and aggressive. I have always been convinced that there is a saint for everyone! The wide spectrum of holiness is God's universal, inclusive invitation to be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect. strict and pristine observance was often fierce and violent. Teresa and her male counterpart, John of the Cross, were at odds with fellow Carmelites, civil authorities, and even the Inquisition. Teresa was challenged, but remained undaunted. Here is the face of a Mother General, commanding, yet compassionate. Here is a future Doctor of the Church, wise in the ways of God and wily in the moral minefields of this world. Among the saints, few can compare with Teresa of Avila ( ). She was a great reformer. She wrote sublime spiritual classics like her Autobiography, the Way of Perfection and Interior Castle. She was a mystic who experienced visions and heard voices. She could also be hardheaded and tough. In many ways she was a living paradox a contemplative activist. The paradox of St. Teresa is visualized in three very different likenesses. One is an actual portrait of her toward the end of her life. Another is Bernini's sculpture of the Ecstacy of St. Teresa in the Conaro Chapel of the Church of Santa Maria Della Vittoria in Rome. And the third image is a contemporary icon by Robert Lentz. The Ecstacy of St. Teresa is a dynamic sculpture. Bernini had a rare gift for capturing moments of high emotional intensity and spiritual energy. In this baroque masterpiece, Teresa is ravishingly beautiful, but virginal. She has just had a great unitive mystical experience. Through grace, she has shared the last moment of Christ' s Passion as the lance was thrust into his heart and then withdrawn. Teresa's own reflection describes what she felt when an angel pierced her heart with a golden arrow. The pain was so great that I screamed aloud, but simultaneously felt such an infinite sweetness that I wished the pain to last eternally. It was the sweetest caressing of my soul by God. The portrait of St. Teresa shows a woman who has survived years of hardship, sickness and frustration. Opposition to her reforms of the Carmelite Order to its Mystic submission to God was the fruit of St. Teresa's prayer and contemplation. It did not contradict her practical intellect or her sense of hard discipline. Mother General was first and always the Bride of Christ.

3 October 14, 2007 Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time Page Three Stewardship Sunday Collections Weekly (This Year) 10/7/07 - $12, (Last year) 10/9/06 - $9, Robert Lentz's whimsical, but engaging, icon completes the three dimensions of Teresa's holiness. The icon has a blue Spanish tile background. On each tile is a Star of David. It reveals that part of Teresa s ancestry was Jewish. Lentz's Teresa plays the tambourine (which she did!) While Teresa had great discipline and demanded the same of her nuns, she also had a keen sense of humor and a commitment to joy. She once said: Deliver us from sullen saints. She never let her nuns undervalue recreation. If she found herself in an innocently compromising situation, Teresa was always ready with a holy sound bite. Once Teresa who encouraged selfdenial, was caught stuffing herself with roast partridge. Her sisters gasped: Oh, Reverend Mother! She countered with What? When I pray, I pray. When I eat partridge, I eat partridge! The three dimensions of Teresa's holiness were strength in trial or achievement, her unity with Christ, and an unconquerable joy. Poet Phyllis McGuinley s tribute to Teresa makes her a recognizably human saint! Teresa was God's familiar. She often spoke to Him informally, As if together they shared some heavenly joke. Once, watching stormily Her heart's ambitions wither to odds and ends, With all to start anew, She cried, If this is the way You treat Your friends, No wonder You have so few! There is no perfect record standing by Of God's reply. Bravo Santa Teresa! Fr. Luczak St. Teresa of Avila's Feast Day October 15 Today's theme is perseverance Moses keeping his hands upraised throughout the battle, Paul urging Timothy to stay with the task of preaching and teaching, and the widow appealing to the corrupt judge. To be faithful stewards of God's gifts, we, too, must persevere in the roles to which we are called. SPIRITUAL LIFE LITURGY BOARD AND PLANNERS MEETING The Liturgy Board and Planners will meet to begin planning for the Advent/ Christmas season this Monday, October 15 th, 8:00 p.m. in the Holy Family Room.

4 October 14, 2007 Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time Page Four On this Respect Life Sunday, and throughout the month of October, the Church proclaims again, as she does each day, the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. We continue with excerpts from pro-life materials from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. At the other end of life, as well, the bonds of love between generations are being stretched thin. Some doctors and ethicists claim that patients with dementia or in a so-called 'persistent vegetative state' are no longer really persons, and that families should deny them even the most basic forms of nourishment and care. And yet, however weak and vulnerable such patients may appear, they have the awesome power to inspire heroic, sacrificial love from their family members and caregivers a power that can lead to the sanctification of those who care for them. It matters not to God whether we are now, or ever, conscious of our existence or capable of 'higher thought.' The value of a human life does not depend on exercising one's intellect; it comes from God's fatherly love for each human, created in his image. His love is present long before our brain waves can be measured at six weeks' gestation, and long after our brains no longer function so well. His love is present long before our heart begins to beat at 22 days after conception, and long after our heart begins to fail. His love is present at every step and misstep of our lives. And to some of us who are humble and lowly, God grants the privilege to be his instrument in bringing forth holiness from others. God loves, and wants us to love, the grandfather lying unconscious in a hospital bed, the child with severe physical and mental impairments, the frightened teenaged mother, and the unplanned embryo nesting in her womb. Each of these vulnerable persons is given to us so that we may learn to love as God loves generously, sacrificially, unconditionally. May we never tire of proclaiming the dignity and worth of every human life. May we never tire of serving the vulnerable and their caregivers with generous hearts. And may we never cease to pray for the day when all people, and all societies, will defend the life of every human from conception to natural death.

October is the chosen month to highlight our respect and esteem for all living things. The unborn child is a precious example of life in its most fragile and vulnerable state. An unplanned pregnancy can be a devastating experience for someone unwilling or unable to make changes in her life. Abortion presents the alluring illusion of escape for the frightened and confused. Carrying an unplanned pregnancy to term requires tremendous courage. Through support, referrals, and prayer, the Hopeline ministry reaffirms the decision to choose life. Join us in prayerful remembrance of the unborn during Respect Life Month and always. You needn't struggle through a problem pregnancy alone. Call (847) 823-HOPE

We have tried to keep close track of these names for our Bulletin as they are made available to us. However, now we face an important privacy issue, very much like the issues faced by hospitals, health institutions, and certainly by other parishes. We cannot (by law) publicly let our parish community know the health status of any of our members without their permission. We appreciate the fact that often friends, neighbors, and acquaintances wish to do something special for a person who is ill, and ask to place their name on the list to be prayed for. While their intentions are surely good, we simply can no longer accept names in this manner. We will institute a new process regarding calling in names for the Bulletin list. Names for the sick list placed in the Bulletin have to be called in by the person who is ill, or by a member of their family. At the time they call in the name, they will be asked whether they are the sick person him/ herself, or a member of their family, and if they give permission for the name to be placed on the list. They will be asked for the correct spelling of the sick person's name. If a family member, they will be required to give their name for our records. Thank you for your patience regarding this new process. We wish to do all we can to offer our parish community the opportunity to offer prayers for those who are ill but we must also be cognizant of the fact that all members of our congregation are entitled to their privacy in this regard.
