SERVING OUR FELLOW MAN -SS. PETER AND PAUL PARISH “Christ has no body on earth but yours, no feet but yours, no hands but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ is to look out on a hurting world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless all now.” St. Theresa of Avila

SERVING WITH COMMUNITY PARTNERS SSPP PADS Saints Peter and Paul PADS Ministry provides shelter and meals the first Wednesday of each month from October through May from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. on Thursday morning. The guests are given dinner and breakfast, showers, and a place to sleep. The PADS shelter is located in the First Congregational United Church on Benton and Center Streets. Last season we served between 40 and 60 guests each night. There are two rotations of PADS volunteers from SSPP with each volunteer working a total of 4 times in the season. We have a total of 55 individuals who bring food and personal care items for the guests, and approximately 42 individuals who service the shelter that evening and into the morning. Volunteers prepare the beds, set up and serve dinner, make lunches, and breakfast. We have a number of teens who enjoy working at the shelter for service time and families who work together at this much-needed ministry. If you feel you are being called to participate in this ministry, please contact either Cheryl Kinley, PADS food coordinator at CherylKinley@comcast.net or 630-505-0276 or Katie Neary at 630-305-7961/ neary1@wowway.com or Kari Foley at 630-5777051/karifoley@wowway.com., PADS coordinators.

READINGS FOR THE WEEK

Faith In Action The Faith In Action Team will be making a trip down to the Missionaries of Charity soup kitchen in Chicago on Sunday, September 30th. The team will assemble in front of the church after the 6:30 AM Mass. Once we arrive at the soup kitchen (about 8:30), we will prepare and serve a meal for about 100 guests. Afterward we help clean the kitchen and then we’re done! Typically the entire meal service is completed by 11:00 to 11:30. Due to limited room in the kitchen, we can only take a maximum of 10 volunteers. If you are interested in joining us on this mission to help feed the hungry, please contact me by calling (630) 215-5469 or emailing me at theneisclan@yahoo.com. Our team for this trip will be assembled on a first come, first serve basis. If you don't make it this time please don't worry, there will be future opportunities. Thank you, Kevin Neis

A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners of SS. Peter and Paul, Correction of Statement about Fr. James Nowak The Diocese of Joliet has corrected their previous statement regarding the allegation against Fr. Nowak. Doug Delaney, the Diocesan spokesman, clarified: “The initial notification sent regarding Father Nowak should have said "may have occurred" rather than "has likely occurred". I apologize for any confusion.” Please continue to keep all those involved with this situation and our own parish community in your prayers. Parish Webpage Within the next couple weeks, the parish will be unveiling its new parish webpage. The new design is the latest in web design with a number of interactive areas including our Mass and Parish Calendar as well as a whole new look and new content. Please keep your eyes peeled within the next two weeks. Organ Work In order to maintain the proper working order of our parish organ, we will be having significant maintenance and cleaning as well as the revoicing of some of the pipes done on the organ in the church over the coming weeks. If you see them removing some pipes, you will know what is happening. Don’t worry. It will all be back in order in due time. Door of Faith The parish is launching a series of lectures and activities to celebrate the Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI. We are having a series of renowned speakers and authors visiting the parish to help prepare us. Please watch future bulletins and our parish webpage for more information. Pieta’ The black granite cross has now been installed behind the Pieta’ statue at the rear of church. The cross not only emulates the original design of Michelangelo’s Pieta’ at St. Peter’s Basilica, but the whole idea is that Mary is seated at the foot of the cross holding the body of her son that has just been taken down from that cross. This reminds us not only of the Mother’s sorrow but also the sacrifice of the one she holds. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

Retirement Matters Preparing for retirement is a daunting task. The financial world can be summarized in one word: “volatile.” With the future of social security remaining uncertain, many companies no longer offering pensions, and personal savings rates extremely low; it is imperative on the individual to prepare for retirement. Planning for this major life event does not have to be exhaustive but he key is “planning”. Mike Walschot will present your best options in preparing for retirement. Join us on Thursday, September 18 from 6:30-8:00pm, in room 217/218 in the Ministry Center (Upper Level).

Focus on Marriage Marriage: Love and Life In The Divine Plan: A Natural and Spiritual Blessing “While marriage is a special blessing for Christians because of the grace of Christ, marriage is also a natural blessing and gift for everyone in all times and cultures. It is a source of blessing to the couple, to their families, and to society and includes the wondrous gift of co-creating human life.” To read the document go to http://www.usccb.org/loveandlife/.

Blessed Bernard Lichtenberg Blessed Bernard Lichtenberg was born on the 3rd of December, 1875, in Ohlau in the Prussian province of Silesia, near Breslau, where he was ordained in 1899. In 1900, he began his priestly service in Berlin. He was appointed parson of the Sacred Heart Parish in the quarter of Charlottenburg in 1913, where he laid the foundation for five parishes and a monastery as a pioneer in the building of Catholic communities in the ever growing metropolis and capital of the German Empire. He also was a member of the local parliament for the German Catholics’ party, called The Centre. In 1931, the first bishop of the newly erected diocese of Berlin, the Most Reverend Dr. Christian Schreiber, made him a member of the Cathedral Chapter and, in 1932, appointed him parson of St. Hedwig’s Cathedral. He became Cathedral Provost of St. Hedwig’s in 1938. Since the excesses against the Jews on the 9th of November, 1939, he held evening prayers at St. Hedwig’s (just a thousand meters from Hitler’s Third Reich) interceding publicly and emphatically for them. In October 1941, Fr. Lichtenberg again spoke out against the euthanasia program of the Nazi government. Subsequently in May 1942, he was arrested and was sentenced to two years in a Nazi prison. Authorities judged that Fr. Lichtenberg was too outspoken and that he was incorrigible. They ordered his further detention and the transport to the concentration camp of Dachau. On November 5, 1943, already in poor health, Fr. Lichtenberg collapsed and died on the way to the concentration camp. In April 1965 the process of his beatification was instituted; on June 23, 1996, His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, elevated blessed Bernard to the honor of the altars at a solemn Pontifical Mass held at the Olympic stadium in Berlin. His tomb is situated in the crypt of St. Hedwig’s Cathedral in Berlin. His Feast is celebrated in the archbishopric of Berlin on the 5th of November as a Memorial.

The New Evangelization Door of Faith Speaker Series •

On Friday, October 12th, Ss. Peter and Paul will be hosting the first in a series of speakers for the Year of Faith. We are excited to have joining us popular Catholic philosopher, author and speaker, Dr. Peter Kreeft. The event will be at 7:00pm in the Holy Family Chapel. No tickets necessary. A free will offering will be taken and a selection of Catholic books will be on sale. Please also mark your calendars for Friday, November 2, as Ss. Peter and Paul welcomes back Theater of the Word to present a dramatic interpretation of one of Dr. Kreeft’s books, “Socrates Meets Jesus.” There’s Still Time to Sign Up!!

The Main Event – How many of us Catholics received the sacraments as children, but never gained an adult understanding of the Gospel and the teachings of the Church? Or perhaps it’s just time for a refresher on Catholicism 101! The Main Event is a thorough study of the Catholic Faith, beginning in the fall and finishing in the spring. It is called the Main Event because it is a significant catechesis (teaching of the Catholic Faith) offered at our parish. The Main Event is open to anyone who wishes to come. Any adult Catholic wanting to understand the Faith better – and especially to see the “why” behind many of our beliefs and practices would benefit from this series. Join us Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:00 in the Ministry Center Social Hall beginning Tuesday, September 11th. No fees and no registration required. Gifts of Finest Wheat - Marriage: Life and Love in the Divine Plan – Gifts of Finest Wheat is back! This year our Fall session will focus on the U.S. bishops’ document “Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan.” This study is perfect for married, engaged, or dating couples, singles, priests, religious…anybody! We meet for eight Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Social Hall, beginning Thursday, September 13th. The format is some light reading in preparation, small group discussion, and lecture. Cost is $7.00 for materials. To register, contact Denise at 630-718-2156 or dstephen@sspeterandpaul.net God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage – This one day workshop for married and engaged couples delves into Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body with DVD presentations from popular presenter, Christopher West. Saturday, October 27th from 9:00-5:00. Watch the bulletin for more details. Edith Stein Book Study – Tuesday Evenings in the Fall Join other women this fall to read and discuss “Saint Edith Stein: A Spiritual Portrait.” This readable biography of Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) highlights her life and spirituality. Learn about Stein’s conversion, commitment to her family, and devotion to the Eucharist and Our Lady. Be inspired, grow in faith, and develop friendships with other women. Tuesdays, September 25 – November 6 (7 weeks) 7:00 – 8:30p.m. Ministry Center, Room 217/218 (10/23 and 10/30 study will meet in the lower level). The book, written by Dianne Marie Traflet, is available at Amazon or other bookstores for $15. Purchase the book on your own and call Denise at 630-718-2156 to register by September 18th. Space is limited. SSPP Men’s Group – Great Time to Join Ss. Peter and Paul Men’s group meets Saturdays, from 7:30-8:30 am in the St. Paul Center for the New Evangelization (entrance on Benton and Brainard). Beginning Saturday, September 8th, we’ll be reading and discussing the book “Wild at Heart.” This is a great time to join! New men welcome any time. Just drop in. Praised be Jesus Christ! Mike Brummond Director of the New Evangelization

SSPP Peace and Social Justice Committee Invites You to … Explore Catholic Relief Services. It operates in over 100 countries, has been around for over 60 years, gets top marks from charity rating and ranking organizations, and has been commended by voices as widespread as Pope John Paul II, U.S. Congressman James McGovern, and New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof. However, only 11% of Catholics know what Catholic Relief Services is, let alone what it does, or how it does it so well. Indeed, many would be surprised to discover that it is not the same as, or another name for Catholic Charities. Given the many opportunities to live out our faith that Catholic Relief Services (or CRS) offers us, the Saints Peter and Paul Peace and Social Justice Committee would like to help our parish learn more and get involved. First, the basics: What is it? While the extent of CRS’ operations can be a lot to wrap one’s head around, what the organization is can be understood simply by breaking down its name—Catholic, and Relief. What makes it Catholic? The guiding principles of CRS grow right out of Scripture and the themes of Catholic social teaching. They include: • • • • • • • •

The Sacredness and Dignity of the Human Person; The Rights and Responsibilities that flow from that dignity; The Social Nature of Humanity; The Common Good, or a “social fabric” that allows everyone to realize his or her full potential and inherent dignity; Solidarity among the entire human family, across the globe; Option for the Poor, or giving a weighted concern to the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable members of the human family, as their vulnerability wounds us all; Subsidiarity, or allowing people who are closest to and have the best understanding of a problem handle that problem if they are able, rather than allowing a higher level of government or organization to do so; and Stewardship, or caring for, using, and distributing the resources of God’s creation in a manner that is just and equitable for both current and future generations.

While the needs of the poor sometimes require CRS to partner with institutions whose positions and practices do not fall entirely in line with the full range of Catholic teaching, CRS’ associations with those organizations are limited to activities that are fully consistent with Catholic teaching. In addition, CRS employs a careful review system to ensure that it “neither facilitates, endorses nor enables any violation of those teachings.” Finally, CRS is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States (that’s us), and the official overseas relief and development agency of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. It is also a member of Caritas Internationalis (the Vaticanheadquartered international confederation of 165 relief, development and social justice agencies). What makes it (or what does it mean by) Relief? The word “relief” tends to conjure up images associated with the aftermath of a war or of a blindsiding natural disaster, or situations in which the problem and the solution are relatively easy to identify. To be sure, CRS was founded in 1943 (then known as War Relief Services) to serve populations affected by World War II and continues to conduct similar operations. However, as it has grown and the world has changed, CRS has expanded its efforts to reach those affected by what it terms “complex emergencies” and to “challenge structures that promote injustice.” The situations that systemically undermine human dignity are often the result of conflict, climate, culture, natural and manmade disasters, and a number of other complicated factors, which are often exacerbated and fueled by one another. Therefore, CRS’ efforts are equally multifaceted and comprehensive, involving public policy, agriculture, education, emergency response, slavery and human trafficking, health (including HIV and AIDS), microfinance, peace building, social safety nets for individuals with the greatest needs (such as the disabled or elderly), water and sanitation, and food security. CRS conducts these activities across the globe, wherever the need is greatest (one of the traits that differentiates it from Catholic Charities, which has a more domestic focus). Within the United States, CRS’ efforts are entirely focused on helping Catholics live out our faith and act upon our social teaching. Through education and calls to action (including prayer), CRS helps bring us into solidarity and community with our brothers and sisters around the world, inspiring gratitude and compassion, deepening our faith, and strengthening our relationship with God (this could be called its own kind of “relief”). Over the next several months, the Peace and Social Justice Committee looks forward to providing you with more in-depth looks at CRS’ particular operations and fields of action, as well as opportunities to get involved with their efforts. In the meantime, all of the above was pulled from, or accessed via the CRS website (crs.org), which has enough information to keep a curious mind occupied for weeks and a compassionate heart alight for a lifetime.

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING MINISTRY

In today's Gospel, Jesus says, “If a man wishes to come after me, he must deny his very self, take up his cross, and follow in my steps.” The cross of Jesus and the crosses of his members can evangelize us: the sick who bear illness with courage; the grieving, who hope against hope; the dying, who clearly trust in the resurrection; the suffering of our poor brothers and sisters who are hungry and homeless, but who still trust in God’s love. Is there a neighbor or friend of yours who is in temporary need because of a loss of a job or an illness? Please leave a message for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul… we want to help. Contact us at 630-3551-1081.

THM needs women mentors! We currently have a shortage of women mentors and would be especially grateful if any lady who has previously mentored a family in our program would be willing to return now to mentor a new family. If so, please call Jack Flowers at 630-355-4886 as soon as possible. And, if you are a woman who would be willing to attend new mentor training in October and prepare to join one of our mentor teams in the near future, please also call Jack as soon as you can. Thank you!

Adoration Corner "Let us not forget to visit . . . Jesus. Let us tell Him we love Him. We might ask Him what He wants of us, what are His wishes. Sometimes we might ask Jesus something for ourselves and something for others. One can speak to Jesus as brother to brother, as friend to friend, more so, since it often happens that men do not understand us, whereas Jesus understands each of us always." -St. Maximillian Kolbe, Martyr and Franciscan Priest
