A Message from our Pastor Dear Parishioners of Saints Peter and Paul, Mercy Sunday – 10th Anniversary of Adoration Chapel This Sunday we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our perpetual adoration chapel. It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years. We have a series of guest speakers at each of the Masses this weekend including Bishop Joseph Siegel, Fr. Dominic McManus, OP, Fr. Michael Lane, Fr. William Vagenas and Fr. Douglas Martis. On Sunday afternoon, Fr. Gregor Gorsic will lead us in the Divine Mercy Chaplet and reflect on the importance of Eucharistic Adoration and Divine Mercy in our lives. Please join us and take the opportunity to sign up for an hour of adoration.

Commemorative Bell Booklet If you did not get a chance to purchase a commemorative booklet about the bells last weekend, you can do so by stopping by the office. If you would like to see the booklet before purchasing, please simply ask one of the many parishioners who have purchased one or stop by the office to peruse. The booklet includes photos of the bells lost in the church fire, the new bell being cast and put into our tower as well as Bishop Siegel baptizing our bells. The cost is $10.00 a copy and any proceeds will go to on-going maintenance for the bells. Although the restoration of the bells was paid by two parishioners, this is a way that you too can show your support for the project. Please also check out the great video of the blessing of our bells on our parish webpage. May Almighty God bless you and keep you. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

The Election of Pope Francis - Reflection by Max Behna March 13, 2013 What a day! First, some background information. I am studying in Rome through the Catholic Studies department at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. As seminarians living on the campus and attending classes at St. Thomas, about a dozen of us every semester are able to study abroad in Rome with other university students involved in Catholic Studies. The evening of the conclave! The plan was to meet at St. Peter’s square around 5:30pm, wait for the smoke, and then head back to the house for a community dinner. After leaving the Angelicum, the university we are studying at in Rome, I arrived at St. Peter’s square a little after 5:30pm. To my surprise, the square already looked nearly full. After making my way through the crowd I found Fr. Justin, one of the priest chaplains, and Deacon Nick, a deacon helping out with the St. Thomas program. After waiting for a while we realized that we were cut off from the rest of the group so I was asked to go out and see if I could find them. The search ended up turning into a profound experience for me. As I made my way through the congested square I received a glimpse of the Universal Church. I saw priests, monks, and sisters from all kinds of different orders. I saw both the young and the elderly and everyone in between. I encountered people with many different ethnicities ranging from all different parts of the globe. If there ever was a truly universal institution the Catholic Church was it! But the Catholics eagerly awaiting a new Pope were not the only ones there. I predict there were hundreds of people from the media in and around the square. Every direction I went there were reporters from all parts of the world. The Holy Father is not merely a father for the Catholic Church but for all of humanity. The amount of reporters and their interest in the election of the new Pope made this truth really hit home. Whether they realized it or not, it really seemed like the whole world was awaiting the man who would become our new holy father. I finally found the rest of the students and eventually we all made our way towards the front of the square across from the statue of St. Peter. Waiting outside of St. Peter’s was thrilling! It had been raining all day but that didn’t stop anyone. Nevertheless, not many people I talked to thought we would see white smoke that evening. I remember hearing things like, “I predict black smoke at 6:30pm” or “It’s still a bit early in the conclave.” About an hour and a half had gone by since I first arrived. It was five after seven and I was talking with a Chicago CBS news cameraman off the air when I heard gasps and frantic voices. The smoke had started to come out of the Sistine Chapel! At first, it appeared to be the same color it had started with the night before just before it had turned black. Seconds felt like minutes as we waited for the smoke to change colors. This time, however, it stayed white! Loud cries ripped through the square. “White smoke! We have a Pope,” people shouted. I couldn’t believe it! Within just over a day of starting the conclave we had a Pope! At that moment, everyone frantically started to run towards St. Peter’s. The square went from being full with pockets of space here and there to full with no room to move whatsoever! Hundreds of thousands of people where packed shouting, “Viva il Papa! Long live the Pope!” From there we had been told it would take about 45 minutes for the Pope to come out on the balcony and greet the people. Our group was divided into two from the push forward. The group I was with decided to pray a rosary for the new Holy Father with the time we had before his greetings. It was a good intention but, honestly, I don’t think any of us could focus! After the rosary I remember looking at everyone around me. I was looking eye to eye and smiling at people from several different countries who were doing the same to me. Again, the Universal Church was so present. We were complete strangers but united with the same faith, same joy, and now the same Holy Father. About an hour had gone by since the white smoke! During this time the Swiss guard had all lined up in formation ready to greet the Pope. After raining all day, by Divine Providence, it came to a complete stop. The people were getting restless at this point eagerly waiting to see who he would be. Finally, the larger window doors began to open leading out to the balcony! The crowd immediately rang out a cry and began to cheer. The Proto Deacon, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran stepped out and announced those famous words, “Habemus Papam” (We have a Pope)! Immediately the crowd erupted in the loudest cheer I’ve ever heard! I don’t think I’ve ever cried out so loud in my life! They would quickly quiet down, however, as he began to announce the chosen Cardinal. “Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio!” There came an unexpected quiet over the crowd as just about everyone whispered to their neighbor, “who?” Hardly anyone knew who he was but in the end, it didn’t matter! Within seconds of learning the new Pope’s name the whole crowd began to chant, “Francesco, Francesco, Francesco!” At that point, it didn’t matter who it was. All we cared about was that we had a Pope! At this point, we had only to see our new Holy Father. Word on who this man was passed through the crowd like lightening! “He’s an Argentinian! He’s a Jesuit! He’s 76 years old!” Finally, around 8:20pm Rome time, Pope Francis stepped onto the balcony. Again, the crowd erupted in cheers! After a while, however, in a humorous way, it became a little awkward. He wasn’t doing any great waves with his arms like his previous two predecessors. He was just sort of standing there. The crowd picking up on this started to die down, that is, until he very simply raised his arm. Again, shouting and cheers ripped through the crowd! Then came the very simple, “Bona sera” (good afternoon). Again, piercing cries and shouts of joy ran through the crowd. I’m convinced he could have said anything and we would have gone nuts! He then asked “how are you?” During the loud cries I think a fitting response could have been, “Forget about us, how are you? You’re the one who just became Pope!” Our new Holy Father seems to have a good sense of humor and I think these first two remarks demonstrated that! The rest of the greeting was quite powerful. One of the first things he did was thank Benedict XVI for his success and service to the Church. He then led us in an Our Father, a Hail Mary, and a Glory Be for his predecessor. Another striking moment was when he humbly asked for a moment of silence so that we could ask God to bless him. At that point, St. Peter’s Square was dead silent. There were no sirens, no shouting, (continued on next page)

or even whispering. It was a rather extraordinary moment. Finally, towards the end of his short remarks he recited a long, formal prayer over us and the Church, invoking Saints Peter and Paul numerous times. This would be the end of Pope Francis’ opening greeting as Pope but only the beginning of his Pontificate. After reflecting on all that has happened, I’d say the extraordinary thing about this entire experience was not witnessing the man Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio become Pope. The extraordinary thing about this entire experience was witnessing Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, continue once again to shepherd His Church through Jorge Mario Bergoglio as he became Pope. I’ve realized it would be a great mistake to see this election as a purely human event no different than the election of a president of a secular organization. This would be seeing the Church as a merely human institution. The reality is the Catholic Church is both human and divine! God knows the weaknesses and struggles that every human being faces. He knows firsthand how we are tempted to sin and inclined to fall. “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has similarly been tested in every way, yet without sin” (Heb 4:15). Yet, in spite, or rather, because of our weaknesses and great need for a savior and redeemer, God chose to unite humanity with Himself, transforming us into “one body in Christ” (Rom 12:5). It is this Body of Christ we call the Church; where the human meets the divine. After going from being present in St. Peter’s square the moment the seat of Peter went vacant to witnessing the election of the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church, this truth has never been so clear. It is the Lord who is at work in His Church. It is the Lord who gives each successor of Peter authority to which whatever they bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever they loose on earth is loosed in heaven (Matt 16:19). It is the Lord who leads his sheep to the green pastures of Eternal Life. How blessed we are to be members of this Church and sheep of this Shepherd!

2013 St Vincent DePaul Clothing Drive April 13-14th It’s March and spring house cleaning can’t be far away. Yes, time to clean out the closets, storage room, attic, and basement of all clothes and items you haven’t used in a while. The St. Vincent de Paul Society knows of someone who would be thrilled to wear or use them. On the weekend of April 13-14, the St. Vincent de Paul trucks will be in our parish parking lot. This year we will be accepting clothing, shoes, linens, and books in good or bad condition. Unusable clothing, shoes, linens, and even books generate income for the needy because they are sold for rags or in bulk. Yes, it is okay to bring us your smelly old gym shoes! We also accept small housewares (toasters, blenders, mixers, etc.) and electronics, as the SVdP Thrift Shops are now electronic recycling centers! They will accept your old televisions, stereos, computers, and other electronic equipment—working or not. If you have any large items or furniture you would like to donate, we cannot accept on the trucks, but you can call and schedule a pick up at your home at 630-231-4658.

SCHOOL MASSES The next school Masses will be celebrated at 8:00am on Tuesday, April 9th and Thursday, April 11th.

St. Francis Chapel of Eucharistic Adoration

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY In the Gospel today, Jesus stands in the midst of us and says” Peace be with you!” During Mass we turn to each other and say, “Peace be with you!” As you put your gift into the green envelopes, found at the rear of the church or chapel, you are also saying “Peace be with you!” to those who are poor and hungry. Please take a plastic bag or two and return them before or after all Masses next week.

Second Sunday of Easter/ Divine Mercy Sunday

Have you been looking for a ministry to join? Would you like to serve your church but don’t have a lot of extra time on your hands? Do you wish you could get to know a few more members of the parish? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, consider becoming an Altar Server, an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, or a Lector. We need people to fill those roles at ten Masses each weekend. You would be able to specify which Mass times you attend and would like to serve at. With enough people on the schedule, your commitment would generally only be a couple of times each month. Training will be provided. For more information, or to volunteer, contact Deacon Michael Crowell at 630-718-2197 or at

ELIZABETH MINISTRY As Mary went in haste to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was with a child to help and comfort her, so does our Elizabeth Ministry for all those who are in need. If you have experienced infertility, loss of a pregnancy, an infant or child death, you are not alone, many of our parish families have experienced the same and the Elizabeth Ministry would like to help you through it. On the other hand, if you are expecting for the first time, or you are new parents who just had a baby or adopted a child, the Elizabeth Ministry would like to celebrate with you and offer our services to you. Through prayers, adoration hours, and sharing personal experiences, our ministers will try to bring you some peace and comfort no matter what your situation is. Contact Sarah at: 630-809-5925 or at:

Saint Teresa of Jesus of the Andes “Teresa de Jesús de los Andes” (St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes) was born Juana Enriqueta Josefina de los Sagrados Corazones Fernández y Solar on July 13, 1900 in Santiago, Chile into an upper class family. Early in her life she read the autobiography of Therese of Lisieux. The experience had a profound effect on young Juanita's already pious character, leading her to the realization that she wanted to live for God and God alone. She had to work to overcome a very self-centered personality toward being one which cared for others above self. Her further inspiration for this self-transformation was her upcoming First Holy Communion, which led her to commit herself to making herself worthy of what she was about to receive. In 1919, at the age of 19, Juana entered the novitiate of the Discalced Carmelite (O.C.D.) nuns in the township of Los Andes. She was given the name Teresa of Jesus. The new Sister Teresa began an apostolate of letter-writing, sharing her thoughts on the spiritual life with as many people as possible. Her goal was to get the entire world to know the love and joy of Jesus Christ. Just a few months after joining the Order, however, she contracted Typhus (a bacterial disease spread by lice). She was still three months short of her twentieth birthday, and had yet six months to complete her canonical novitiate, so as to be normally able to make her religious vows. Being in articulo mortis (in danger of death), she was allowed to profess her final vows early. Shortly after doing so, on April 12, 1920 (which fell during Holy Week that year) the disease took her life. She died a joyful death knowing that she was a professed nun of the Order. She was only 19 years old. On April 3, 1987, Teresa of Jesus was beatified by Pope John Paul II in Santiago, Chile. Six years later she was canonized a Saint. She was the first Discalced Carmelite nun from outside of Europe to be declared a saint and the fifth "Saint Teresa" of the Order, together with the foundress, St. Teresa of Jesus, Saint Teresa Margaret of the Sacred Heart, the aforementioned Saint Therese of Lisieux and Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. St. Teresa of the Andes remains popular with the estimated 100,000 pilgrims who visit the shrine dedicated to her each year. It is there that her remains are venerated in the Sanctuary of Auco-Rinconada in the township of Los Andes (60 miles from Santiago). She is Chile's first saint, and is especially popular among young women. (Source: The Discalced Carmelites of South America)
