Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Current Concern: HHS mandate Under the Administration’s ‘compromise,’ the Church does not have to pay for those services. Why does this not satisfy church concerns? The Administration’s central claim is that contraceptive services are “free” because they save money on childbirths that enrollees in the plan would otherwise have – but that just means premiums paid by a religious organization for live births will pay for contraception and sterilization instead. A proposed “accommodation” for religious organizations covered by the mandate, while not in final form, offers to have insurers or other third parties impose the objectionable coverage – but this only deprives the employer of the ability to provide coverage to its employees that is consistent with its values, and it disregards the conscience rights of both insurers and employees. However the funding is worked out, the simple offer of health coverage by a religious employer will become the “trigger” for ensuring that all its employees receive morally objectionable services in their health plan.

Is this an effort to deny women access to fundamental reproductive services? Access to contraceptives is already widespread. The great majority of employer-sponsored health plans already include contraception, and even without coverage, birth control pills can be obtained at low cost. The relevant question is whether religious organizations should be forced to facilitate the provision of services that are in direct violation of their teachings, in disregard of the First Amendment and federal laws respecting religious freedom.

Many young women say they can’t afford to pay for birth control and these other medical services. Is the Church position discriminating against poor women? Not at all. This is not about health coverage for the unemployed, or for those who must rely on the government for coverage (for example, by Medicaid). It is about people who are employed by the Catholic Church and its various ministries, which are typically generous in the health benefits they provide to their employees. Those who choose to work for the Catholic Church— and no one is forced to do so— know that they are working for a community with its own guiding mission and values, and many work for the Church precisely for that reason. It is unreasonable to expect the Church to violate its own teachings by facilitating and funding sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs, and contraception. As Archbishop Lori testified before Congress, this would be like coming to a kosher deli and demanding to be served a ham sandwich.

The vast majority of Catholics practice artificial birth control. Some argue that the church is out-of-step with modern family realities? Again, the issue isn’t whether individuals practice artificial birth control. Our teachings may not be popular, but that doesn’t mean that the State can force us to violate our own teachings in our own institutions. (continued on next page)

(Frequently Asked Questions on Religious Liberty, Cont’d)

Some argue that the issue is about fairness and equity between men and women. Many of these insurance programs cover Viagra for men, but not protection for women. Isn’t that hypocritical? Viagra is not a contraceptive for men, so that’s not a valid comparison. In fact, the HHS doesn’t mandate men’s contraceptives or vasectomies either. The relevant issue is whether the State should force the Church to violate its profoundly held beliefs.

Aren’t you making too much of this “religious freedom” issue? Religious liberty is a cornerstone of our democracy. The HHS mandate fundamentally alters the fragile balance between government and religious groups created by the framers of our Constitution. The same First Amendment that protects religious freedom protects freedom of the press. We wouldn’t stand for the State telling newspapers or news programs what to write or whom to interview.

The HHS mandate has become a major political issue in the current Presidential campaign. Does opposition to the mandate put the church in league with the Republicans? This is a bipartisan issue that affects all Americans. Legislation to correct this problem has enjoyed bipartisan support in both houses of Congress. We are asking all citizens—Democrats, Republicans, Independents, people of any faith or none at all—to let their views be known to all their elected representatives and to stand up for religious freedom and the First Amendment.

We Welcome our New Parochial Vicar Fr. Mark Rosenbaum About Fr. Mark… I was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1966. I was baptized at St. Ignatius of Antioch the same year. My family moved to Downers Grove in 1972 and I lived there until my ordination. I was ordained in 2007 and have served at Holy Family in Shorewood and St. Mary Immaculate in Plainfield before coming to Sts. Peter and Paul. I thank you for inviting me into your parish. -Fr. Mark J. Rosenbaum

Dear Parishioners of Ss. Peter & Paul Parish, As you may be aware, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) this summer is conducting a Fortnight for Freedom to begin with the vigil of the memorials of St. Thomas More and St. John Fischer and culminate with Independence Day. The purpose of this effort is to issue a call to defend religious liberty and to urge Catholics to work to protect the First Freedom of the Bill of Rights. It is hoped that this will be not only a forum for action about these issues, but also an influence on other issues pending in Springfield and Washington. The Illinois bishops’ contribution to the Fortnight for Freedom is to launch the Illinois Catholic Advocacy Network, or I-CAN. I-CAN allows you to sign up for occasional e-mail updates from the Catholic Conference of Illinois (CCI). Catholic Conferences in other states are developing similar networks, as we recognize the need for more creative forms of engagement for the laity. I encourage all of you to sign up for these updates from the Illinois Catholic Conference. You can sign up online at http:// If you are interested in signing up but do not have e-mail, please contact the parish office and we will supply you with a post card that you can use to sign up by mail. Catholics, both as citizens and Church members, need to become more engaged with state and federal policies that affect the Church and her mission. The loss of state foster care and adoption contracts for Catholic Charities and the federal HHS mandate forcing insurance coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilizations highlight the need for Catholics to be informed about the Church’s role in the public square. Catholics want a voice, especially when the government is increasingly encroaching on the mission and the operations of the Church. We need the enthusiastic participation of every Catholic in this important endeavor to challenge unconstitutional attacks on our religious freedom. For more information, please visit: In Christ, Fr. Milota P.S. – Please join us for the Fortnight for Freedom Prayer Services held in the Holy Family Chapel in the SS. Peter and Paul Ministry Center at 6 pm every weeknight from June 21st through July 4th . (There will be no prayer services in the Holy Family Chapel on Saturday, June 23 & 30 and Sunday, June 24 & July 1).

Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty O God our Creator, Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society. We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith. Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome— for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us— this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners of SS. Peter and Paul, Happy Father’s Day! We give thanks to God for our Dads who seem so rarely to get their due. We thank them for being the rock who is always there and who is not afraid to tell us when we have gone off the track. Let’s offer a special prayer for our Fathers today. Fr. Marek Jurzyk We thank Fr. Marek Jurzyk for his service to our parish community over the last two years and we wish him well as he begins his new assignment as the assistant at the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus in Joliet. Please take some time to stop after the 9:30 am Mass for a reception to offer Fr. Marek our prayers and support. Fr. Mark Rosenbaum This Wednesday we welcome Fr. Mark Rosenbaum to SS. Peter and Paul. Fr. Mark will be taking the position vacated by Fr. Jurzyk and comes to us from St. Mary Immaculate in Plainfield. Fr. Mark is a fine and compassionate priest so please give him a warm welcome to our community. Fortnight for Freedom – June 21st through July 4th As you are aware the freedom of the Church to teach and act freely is being threatened by the mandate of the US government’s Department of Health and Human Services requiring that the Church pay for services which are contrary to her teachings, including sterilizations, contraception and even the so-called abortion drug. Although many Catholics have had these procedures and practice artificial birth control, this does not change the fact that these are the official teachings of the Church, and her institutions should not be forced to pay for that which violates these teachings. This is a severe infringement on our religious freedom whether you agree with the Church’s teaching or not. Further, the so-called accommodation which altered the mandate to place the requirement on insurance companies instead of the Church’s institutions themselves is no accommodation at all in that most Catholic Institutions are self-insured. This means that the Church is still being required to pay for that which is contrary to her teachings. Finally, some have pointed to churches being exempted from this mandate as long as they serve only their members. The problem, of course, is that Catholic Hospitals and schools including universities have never refused to serve or teach whoever comes to their doors. In fact, Catholic Hospitals will treat those patients which are turned away by other institutions especially those the in inner-city or poor areas. This is the mission of a Catholic help the poor. Hence, simply because a Catholic Hospital helps a Baptist get the care they need, then the government has said the exemption no longer applies to them. Does this seem manifestly wrong? Other Catholic institutions are directed specifically to the care of the poor like soup kitchens and shelters. Once again, these institutions do not restrict those who are not Catholic from receiving those services. This mandate of the government infringing on our religious liberty needs to be overturned. Dioceses, schools and parishes across the country are answering the call to a “Fortnight for Freedom” running from June 21st through July 4th. Here at SS. Peter and Paul, we will be having a prayer service, including exposition, benediction and special prayers for the intention that our government will once again respect our religious freedom every evening from June 21st through July 4th at 6:00 pm except on Saturdays and Sundays. On Saturday and Sunday, June 23-24 and June 30-July 1, we will be praying at all of the Masses the special “Fortnight for Freedom Prayer” after communion. Please join me in praying to keep our government out of our churches and that our government will once again guarantee the free practice of our faith and freedom of speech. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

Bl. María Carmen Sallés y Barangueras: A Champion of Women María Carmen Sallés y Barangueras was born outside of Barcelona, Spain, on April 9th, 1848. The second of ten children, her family had a strong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. At the age of 10, she went on a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Montserrat, and after receiving Holy Communion for the first time there, she knew a strong desire to consecrate herself totally to Christ. María Carmen's parents wanted their sons to be priests, but they thought their daughters would be better served by marriage. Thus, María Carmen's parents resisted her initial desire to enter the religious life. For five long years, she stayed under the supervision of her parents and was not allowed contact with priests or anyone associated with the religious life. Her parents allowed potential suitors only, and this was a time of great spiritual mortification. With the help of a Jesuit, María Carmen finally entered the convent in 1869. During this period, she dedicated herself to the mission of her order, which included prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, and the care of women. She found a particular interest in education, and loved teaching. By interacting with young women, she soon came to believe that their education must begin early. With the Congregation of the Dominican Sisters of the Annunciation, her calling towards being an educator of women grew. Meanwhile, she learned how to balance prayer with work, and this led to even greater unity with Our Lord. With the support of Barcelona's Archbishop, María Carmen was encouraged to start a new congregation. In 1893, she would found the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of St. Dominic, and their chief concern was not only the education of women, but also their betterment in the home and in society at large. María Carmen would serve as the superior general of the congregation until her death on July 25th, 1911. In acknowledgment of her many contributions to the good of God's people, she is set to be canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in October of this year. (Source: Catholic News Service)

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY In the Gospel, Jesus says: “This is how it is with the reign of God. A man scatters seed on the ground. He goes to bed and gets up day after day. Through it all, the seed sprouts and grows without his knowing how it happens.” Through your generosity, you are sowing seeds that grow far greater than you know. The donations in the green envelopes (found in the rear of the church or chapel) bring Christ’s love and compassion to the poor. Please contact us at 630-355-1081 if we can be of service to you or someone you know.

FORMING CONSCIENCES FOR FAITHFUL CITIZENSHIP The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has developed a document to assist Catholics in understanding their political responsibilities based on church teachings. Continuing this week, we present this document in its entirety through a series of weekly bulletin articles presenting a portion of the document each week. We hope you find this document helpful as you prepare for the upcoming elections in November. Please note: The entire document can be downloaded from the USCCB website in PDF format at

The Right to Life and the Dignity of the Human Person 44. Human life is sacred. The dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. Direct attacks on innocent persons are never morally acceptable, at any stage or in any condition. In our society, human life is especially under direct attack from abortion. Other direct threats to the sanctity of human life include euthanasia, human cloning, and the destruction of human embryos for research. 45. Catholic teaching about the dignity of life calls us to oppose torture,7 unjust war, and the use of the death penalty; to prevent genocide and attacks against noncombatants; to oppose racism; and to overcome poverty and suffering. Nations are called to protect the right to life by seeking effective ways to combat evil and terror without resorting to armed conflicts except as a last resort, always seeking first to resolve disputes by peaceful means. We revere the lives of children in the womb, the lives of persons dying in war and from starvation, and indeed the lives of all human beings as children of God.

Call to Family, Community, and Participation 46. The human person is not only sacred but also social. Full human development takes place in relationship with others. The family—based on marriage between a man and a woman—is the first and fundamental unit of society and is a sanctuary for the creation and nurturing of children. It should be defended and strengthened, not redefined or undermined by permitting same-sex unions or other distortions of marriage. Respect for the family should be reflected in every policy and program. It is important to uphold parents’ rights and responsibilities to care for their children, including the right to choose their children’s education. 47. How we organize our society—in economics and politics, in law and policy— directly affects the common good and the capacity of individuals to develop their full potential. Every person and association has a right and a duty to participate actively in shaping society and to promote the wellbeing of all, especially the poor and vulnerable. 48. The principle of subsidiarity reminds us that larger institutions in society should not overwhelm or interfere with smaller or local institutions, yet larger institutions have essential responsibilities when the more local institutions cannot adequately protect human dignity, meet human needs, and advance the common good.

Rights and Responsibilities 49. Human dignity is respected and the common good is fostered only if human rights are protected and basic responsibilities are met. Every human being has a right to life, the fundamental right that makes all other rights possible, and a right to access to those things required for human decency—food and shelter, education and employment, health care and housing, freedom of religion and family life. The right to exercise religious freedom publicly and privately by individuals and institutions along with freedom of conscience need to be constantly defended. In a fundamental way, the right to free expression of religious beliefs protects all other rights. Corresponding to these rights are duties and responsibilities—to one another, to our families, and to the larger society. Rights should be understood and exercised in a moral framework rooted in the dignity of the human person.

Option for the Poor and Vulnerable 50. While the common good embraces all, those who are weak, vulnerable, and most in need deserve preferential concern. A basic moral test for our society is how we treat the most vulnerable in our midst. In a society marred by deepening disparities between rich and poor, Scripture gives us the story of the Last Judgment (see Mt 25:31-46) and reminds us that we will be judged by our response to the “least among us.” The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains: Those who are oppressed by poverty are the object of a preferential love on the part of the Church which, since her origin and in spite of the failings of many of her members, has not ceased to work for their relief, defense, and liberation through numerous works of charity which remain indispensable always and everywhere. (no. 2448) 51. Pope Benedict XVI has taught that “love for widows and orphans, prisoners, and the sick and needy of every kind, is as essential to [the Church] as the ministry of the sacraments and preaching of the Gospel” (Deus Caritas Est, no. 22). This preferential option for the poor and vulnerable includes all who are marginalized in our nation and beyond—unborn children, persons with disabilities, the elderly and terminally ill, and victims of injustice and oppression. 7
