Letters from a Pastor to His PeopleOctober 11, 2020
Moderation is key in life. Often the path to holiness is simply finding the mean between extremesIt is okay to have sweets, but one piece of candy, and not ten.Okay, maybe two pieces of candy.The Old Testament acknowledges thepermission of delicacies when Isaiah prophesies, On this mountain the LORD of hosts will provide for all peoples a feast of rich food and choice wines, juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines (Isaiah 256).This isnt permitting getting drunk or stuffed on those rich wines/foods, like that hillside for the overservedatOktoberfest in Munich, but just recognizing that it is okay for God to delight us.
In the First Reading from Isaiah we have a graphic description of the great banquet that the Lord will prepare not only for the people of Israel, but for all people who hear and answer Gods call. The veil or all that separates us from God will be lifted and the spiders web that imprisons us in ignorance and isolation will be brushed aside.At this banquet, there will be rich food and fine wines, there will be neither mourning nor death.
I invite everyone to renewed hope Pope Francis writes in his new encyclical letter Fratelli Tutti, addressed to his brothers and sisters all in this wounded world brought to its knees by the coronavirus pandemic and other crises, including poverty, racism and violence. The pope signed the encyclical letter at the tomb of St. Francis in Assisi, Italy, on Oct. 3, after celebrating Mass there.
In lieu of our regular baby bottle drive, for the month of October, we will be promoting a fundraiser. Your donation can make a difference in the lives of a mother and her baby. Aid for Women provides the emotional, practical, and spiritual support that a women needs to choose life for her unborn baby and to create a brighter future for herself and her child.
What is RCIA? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which individuals prepare to enter the Catholic Church and receive the Sacraments of Initiation Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.
Who is it for? People who are not baptized, who are members of other Christian churches, or if you are Catholic and never received Communion or Confirmation.
At Saint Juliana Parish, we will begin our RCIA program on Sunday, October 11th to explore what it means to believe, pray and live as a Catholic. For more information, please contact Fr. Emanuel at email@example.com or call the parish office at 7736314127. If you know someone who may be interested, you may be the way that they get introduced to the church. Were looking forward to meeting you in October!
The Saint Juliana Parish Book Club will meet on Saturday, October 24th at 915am in the back of the church to discuss A Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man, by James Joyce
A masterpiece of modern fiction, James Joyces semiautobiographical first novel follows Stephen Dedalus, a sensitive and creative youth who rebels against his family, his education, and his country by committing himself to the artists life.
The CDC stresses, Geƫting a flu vaccine is more important than ever during 20202021 to protect yourself and the people around you from flu, and to help reduce the strain on healthcare systems responding to the COVID19 pandemic.†We at Saint Juliana Parish will be doing our part to help this cause by offering flu shots on October 12 from 900am‐noon and on October 16 from noon‐300pm
I was horrified when we watched a YouTube video during the pandemic on how to make a facemaskThe individual cut and destroyed a teeshirt.Other than books, my one material attachment is to teeshirtsChicago Blackhawks championship shirts, a Saint Juliana Mens Club Golf Outing shirt, a Mark Grace Chicago Cubs shirt (hes the real 17), a Grateful Dead tiedyed shirt, an Archdiocese of Chicago shirt, and so on.I dont collect knickknacks and I really dont take pictures.The teeshirt under my Roman Collar that I wear every day is the one way to express myself, so the prospect of destroying one is abhorrent to me.Cutting up an old pillowcase would have been more sensitive.
One of the biggest privileges of being a seminarian is that its part of our daily routine to have direct encounters with Christ.From Adoration and Mass in the campus chapel to cafeteria chats with priests or nuns, we have opportunities to experience Christ firsthand every day. That tremendous blessing is due in no small part to your generous prayers and giftsthank you!
