Letters from a Pastor to His People October 25, 2020
Picture the most serious love you have. Im not thinking about love for the Bears or for White Castle (ok, maybe thats just me), but love for your spouse or for your child or for your parents or siblings. Do we love God that way? We have to. Jesus says so. We are commanded to love.
But how can love be a commandment? You cant be forced to love. No one forced you to love your husband or wife, and if they did, it probably wouldnt have been love.
The First Reading is from the Book of Exodus. This passage illustrates that there is an integral connection between love of God and love of neighbor. It especially underlines the call of the men in Israel to care for three groups of vulnerable people women, orphans, and aliens. The words I will kill you with the sword are not to be taken literally. Rather, they are intended to convey how abominable it is in Gods eyes to fail to care for the most vulnerable in their midst. Therefore, Neighbor is anyone with whom we come in contact. Love in this usage is meant to include all the components of that word Respect, Helpfulness, Forgiveness, etc. Finally, Love of God and love of neighbor, especially the needy, are intimately connected.
Loving God, A Loving People A VIRTUAL SHARING OF PRAYER AND COMMUNITY
On Sunday, October 25 at 200pm, the Archdiocesan Commission on Mental Illness and Faith & Fellowship will hold its annual Mass supporting people with mental illnesses, families, friends, and mental healthcare providers. In these unprecedented times, mental health is in the forefront of our concerns. We know our faith is a key part of our being well. This is a time for all to pray together and share our similar journeys. This year will be different but still with the same purpose of caring and supporting one another.
On Zoom, there will be opening comments from Cardinal Cupich, we will celebrate Mass, and then have an opportunity for conversations for sharing and connecting. Please register in advance by using the Zoom link below and we will send you the log‐in link to the Mass.
Please Join us for the Ninth Annual Hope and Healing Prayer Service on October 24th at 10am for the Continued Healing of Persons Who Have Survived Abuse, for Those Who Support Them, and for Continued Vigilance on Behalf of the Wellbeing of All Children and Youth

Virtual Baby Bottle Fundraiser
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.
Magnificent Desolation.Those were the first words spoken by the second man on the moon as he stood on the new terrain. And more striking than the first mans words they are. True progress for mankind is ultimately in the spiritual and moral realm, and sometimes we advance through desolation and darkness.
Desolation, or desolatio, has the Latin word for sun,solis, in its root. The sun is darkened or declined in this style of prayer. We do not feel the warmth of God. Prayer is, instead, flat, dry, and difficult.
In conjunction with Deacon Toms article last week, I thought it might be appropriate to provide some explanation about the roles that the wives of Deacons have in their spouses ministry. Although the wives are not ordained, we do share in our spouses ministry, yet we are independent laity.
