The elaborateMemorial Day celebrations of years past, which usedto be found in every town and city, are now few andfar between. Even among those who still observe MemorialDay, its original meaning has often been lost.As Chuck Sweeny, a columnist for the Rockford RegisterStar, once pointed out in a Memorial Day column,Memorial Day is not meant to honor veterans or thosecurrently serving in the Armed Forces; instead:It's the day we honor the memories of the armed forcesmembers who never made it to veteran status becausethey were killed fighting for their country in wars, policeactions, peace-keeping missions or terrorist attacks.When I was growing up, our entire village would turnout for the Memorial Day parade, which would end atthe village cemetery, where a bugler would play tapsand the names of all the local men (and boys) who haddied in any war would be read aloud. When the ceremonyended, people would spread out through thegraveyard, visiting the resting places of friends andloved ones, offering prayers and introducing the youngto those who had gone before.That's why, to me, Memorial Day always seemed themost Catholic of American holidays. Respect andhonor for the dead, and the connectionbetween the body that lies inthe ground, awaiting resurrection,and the soul that has gone before it--these are very Catholic themes.And much like All Souls Day(November 2), Memorial Day is avery special time to pray for thesouls in Purgatory, especially thosewho died in the service of ourcountry.


Page Five 6th Sunday of Easter May 29, 2011Sacrament of the Anointing of the SickAll elderly parishionersare invited to the Masswith the Sacrament ofthe Anointing of the Sickwhich will be celebratedin our church on June 4,2011 at 10:00AM. Beforethe Mass at 9:30AM the priests will beavailable for the Sacrament of Penance. Family members,friends and neighbors are kindly asked to assistwith transportation to our church anyone who mightbenefit from the Sacrament on June 4 th .Anointing of the SickThe anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritualand even physical strength during an illness. It is a rite that isperformed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through thepower of the Holy Spirit.Does God Always Heal?Today some Christians go to extremes in their expectation ofdivine healing. God does not always heal the physical infirmitiesthat afflict us. Of course, our healing, like all things, issubject to God’s will. As James pointed out just a chapterearlier, "You do not know about tomorrow. What is your life?For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we shalllive and we shall do this or that’" (Jas. 4:14) We have apromise of healing, but not an unqualified one. It is conditionalon the will of God.The Value of SufferingEven though we must face a certain amount of suffering andaffliction in this life, we know God’s grace is sufficient tosustain us. All of God’s graces, including physical health, arebestowed to lead to the salvation of our souls. God also usesour suffering to help others. If Paul had not become ill whileon his first missionary journey and been forced to stop traveling,he would not have preached to the Galatians, for he tellsthem, "You know it was because of a bodily ailment that Ipreached the gospel to you at first" (Gal. 4:13). If he had notpreached to the Galatians, he would not have later writtenthem the epistle that appears in our New Testament. Godused Paul’s illness to bring salvation to the Galatians and tobring us a work of Scripture, through which we are still receivingbenefits from God. This is just one example of howGod used suffering to bring about good. Therefore, if we suffer,we should look upon it as an opportunity for good, suchas by offering up our sufferings for our own sanctificationand for our departed brothers and sisters in Christ.Mark Your Calendar and Save the Date.June 12, 2011 Pentecost Sunday,12:30 pm MassCome and Join us to celebrateTHE FEAST OF THE HOLY SPIRITHoly Spirit Missionary AssociationChicago, ChapterThere’s still time to get your Market Day order in andhelp us end the year strong!

May 29, 2011 6th Sunday of Easter Page TenPONIEDZIAEK30 MAJA — MEMORIAL DAYSAKRAMENT NAMASZCZENIACHORYCHW poniedziałek, 30 maja będziemy obchodzić święto PamięciNarodowej (Memorial Day). W tym również dniuzostaną odprawione Msze święte polowe celebrowane przezks. kardynała Georga, księży biskupów oraz kapłanów nawszystkich katolickich cmentarzach naszej Archidiecezji.Początek Mszy św. o godz. 10:30 rano. W obecnym biuletyniew sekcji angielskiej na stronie 4 można znaleźć nazwynajbliższych cmentarzy katolickich oraz nazwiska księży ibiskupów, którzy będą tym Liturgion przewodniczyli. Pozostałalista cmentarzy znajduje sie na witrynie internetowejCmentarzy katolickich w Archideicezji Chicago pod adresem:www.catholiccemeteries.orgW tym dniu, w naszym kościele zostanieodprawiona tylko jedna Msza świętąo godzinie 9:00 rano.Nie będzie Mszy św. o godzinie7:00 i 8:00 rano i o 7:00 wieczorem.Biuro Parafialne w tym dniu będzieNIECZYNNE.Memorial Day jest swietem federalnym, ktore obchodzone jestw ostatni poniedziałek i upamietnia wszystkich poleglych wczasie służby wojskowej.Początkowo (oficjalnie od 1868roku )- Memorial Day był świętem ku pamięci żołnierzypoległych w wojnie secesyjnej. Święto to również miało byćkolejnym krokiem ku narodowemu pojednaniu. Pierwotnanazwa (Decoration Day) tego święta pochodzi od składaniakwiatów na grobach żołnierzy: pierwsze tego typuzorganizowane oddawania czci poległym żołnierzom, miałomiejsce jeszcze przed zakończeniem wojny secesyjnej!Memorial Day był różnie obchodzony w różnych stanach. Do1890 roku obchodziły go praktycznie wszystkie stany Północy.Aż do czasów po pierwszej wojnie światowej (gdy charakterświęta zmienił się i jest ono obchodzone, by uczcić pamięćwszystkich którzy polegli w jakiejkolwiek wojnie - nie tylkosecesyjnej) Memorial Day nie był obchodzony wpołudniowych stanach. Pomimo ustawy o świętachfederalnych z 1971 roku, do dzisiaj część stanów Południaobchodzi dodatkowe uroczystości upamiętniające poległychżołnierzy Konfederacji.Zapraszamy wszystkie osoby chore lub w podeszłym wiekuna Mszę św. podczas której udzielimy SakramentuNamaszczenia Chorych w sobotę, 4 czerwca o godz.10:00 rano. Przed Mszą św. od godz. 9:30 rano będziemożliwość skorzystania z Sakramentu Spowiedzi św. Bardzoprosimy o wsparcie i udzielenie pomocy członkom naszychrodzin, znajomym lub sąsiadom, którzy mają trudność zdojazdem do naszej parafii, aby mogli w pełni skorzystać ztego doniosłego i ważnego dla nich Sakramentu.Jakie łaski otrzymuje człowiek w sakramencienamaszczenia chorych?Udzielenie sakramentu chorych nie ma na celu -jak się nierazsądzi- wyłącznie przygotowania człowieka na śmierć, leczrównież umocnienie go w jego cierpieniach. „Człowiekniebezpiecznie chory potrzebuje szczególnej łaski Bożej, abypod wpływem lęku nie upadł na duchu i podlegając pokusomnie zachwiał się w wierze. Dlatego Chrystus w sakramencienamaszczenia daje swoim wiernym, dotkniętym chorobą,potężną moc i obronę”. „Sakrament ten udziela choremu łaskiDucha Świętego, która pomaga całemu człowiekowi dozbawienia, a mianowicie umacnia ufność w Bogu, uzbrajaprzeciw pokusom szatana i trwodze śmierci. Dzięki tejpomocy chory może nie tylko znosić dolegliwości choroby,ale także je przezwyciężać i odzyskać zdrowie, jeżeli to jestpożyteczne dla zbawienia jego duszy. Jeżeli jest to potrzebne,namaszczenie odpuszcza grzechy i staje się dopełnieniemchrześcijańskiej pokuty”. W sakramencie namaszczeniachorych człowiek dostępuje udziału w zbawczej męce iśmierci Chrystusa. Kościół zachęca wszystkich cierpiących,chorych i umierających, aby świadomie łączyli się z męką iśmiercią Chrystusa i w ten sposób przysparzali dobra całemuludowi Bożemu, przyczyniając się do jego zbawienia.Sakrament ten jest niejako konsekracją chorego, aby przezswoje cierpienia skutecznie przyczyniał się do zbawianiaświata oraz aby przez śmierć sam wszedł do chwałyniebieskiej. Wielu teologów twierdzi, że przez sakramentnamaszczenia chorych Chrystus gładzi człowiekowi,przyjmującemu go w dobrej dyspozycji, nie tylko grzechy,ale również i wszystkie należne za nie kary, dzięki czemuzaraz po śmierci przechodzi on do chwały nieba.

May 29, 2011 6th Sunday of Easter Page ThirteenON BEING ORPHANED…NOTCopyright 2011 by John B. Reynolds (john@jrwrites.com).In Little Orphan Annie, our heroine is abused at theorphanage by Miss Hannigan, the mean-spirited supervisor.Annie escapes to look for her parents, and though thepolice return her to Miss Hannigan, Annie ends up with DaddyWarbucks and all goes well for her. Not so much for Miss Hannigan.In A Little Princess, Sara is placed in a boarding housewhile her well-to-do British father goes off to fight in WorldWar I. When word comes back that he dies there and his fortuneis lost, the school owner Miss Minchin--who never liked Sara--grows even meaner. Eventually, though, it all goes well for thegirl. Not so much for Miss Minchin. And in the Cinderella-likeEver After, Danielle, the daughter of a nobleman, is raised by hiswidow Rodmilla who has two daughters of her own. All threeare cruel to Danielle at first, but with time, one of the daughters--Jacqueline--softens. In the end, it all goes well for Danielle andthe kind stepsister. Not so much for Rodmilla and Marguerite.If I had to sum up all these plotlines in a single sentence, Iprobably go with: Be nice to orphans, or else! We all seem tolike it when the bad guys get theirs, and while biblical precedentdoesn’t take it quite that far, we get plenty of Scriptural directionto shower orphans with kindness. In Deuteronomy, for example,Moses puts down the law for his people concerning suchthings. “You shall not violate the rights of the orphan,” he says,adding “…when you pick your grapes, you shall not go over thevineyard a second time; let what remains be for the orphan.” InPsalms, the psalmist puts his (orphaned) trust in God: “Thoughmy father and mother forsake me, yet will the Lord receive me.”And according to James, “If a man who does not control histongue imagines that he is devout, he is self deceived; his devotionis pointless. Looking after orphans…in their distress andkeeping oneself unspotted by the world make for pure worshipwithout stain before our God and Father.” In today’s JohannineGospel, Jesus continues his farewell to the disciples on the nightbefore he dies which we began reading last Sunday. Now,though, he introduces the Holy Spirit into the conversation, tellinghis friends that if they keep his commandments, he will askhis Father to send to them “…another Advocate to be with youalways, the Spirit of Truth…” Advocate. According to my lectors’workbook, only in the Gospel of John is the Holy Spiritacknowledged as such. And per the same workbook, the wordadvocate “…comes from a legal setting and means a defenseattorney, one who defends and consoles another.” Orphans, itwould seem, need defense and consolation “It’s the Hard-Knock Life,” after all. But Jesus tells us--and he seems to say itwith great love, “I will not leave you orphans. I will come toyou.” He comes to us, of course, in the Spirit, who comes to usin turn when we love God and keep his commandments. Anniewas always hopeful for “Tomorrow.” We are too, certainly, butjust as certainly, even today, we have all we really need.Support StaffMrs. Dorota Gołda, Parish SecretarySr. Bernadetta Gościniak, Administrative AssistantMs. Elizabeth Ceisel-Mikowska, Bulletin EditorLiturgicalMrs. Betty Hotcaveg, Lector CoordinatorDeacon Irv Hotcaveg, Coordinator of Eucharistic Ministers &Ministers of CareMs. Jane Lohrmann, Homebound Ministers of Care SchedulerParish CouncilMrs. Sophie Kass—President, Mrs. Mary Bucaro, Mr. Stan Mastalerz,Mr. Antonio Supan, Violet Del Vecchio, Tony Mangiaracina, HerbertMarros, Elzbieta Kata, Jan Bobek, and Rob Heidelbauer .ExOfficio Members: Dr. Lucine Mastalerz , Sr. Anna StrycharzParish Finance CommitteeMr. Tom Bucaro-Chairperson, Fr.
