A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR Dear Parishioners of Saints Peter and Paul, As the anniversary of the Supreme Court Decisions Roe V. Wade and Doe V. Bolton will soon be upon us, I thought some facts provided by the U.S. Bishops might be helpful to us. Please remember that our parish prays the rosary outside one of the largest Planned Parenthood Abortuary's in the country each Tuesday at 2 pm. It is located on New York Street in Aurora. In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota CURRENT ABORTION STATISTICS Important Note While abortion is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the United States, nationally valid data is available from only two sources: the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Guttmacher Institute – a research affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Data from both sources is extremely limited. The CDC provides an annual report of abortion statistics based on data voluntarily submitted to state health departments by abortion providers. Forty-five state health departments consistently report data on abortion; California, New Hampshire, Alaska, West Virginia and Oklahoma do not. Due to the fact that many states do not report complete data on all characteristics (e.g., age, race, and weeks' of gestation), abortion statistics provided by the CDC may not be truly accurate. The Guttmacher Institute provides a report of abortion statistics every four years based on direct survey responses from all known providers of abortion services in all fifty states. As a result, statistics on abortions reported by the Guttmacher Institute are generally accepted as more accurate than those reported by the CDC. However, all statistical reports from the Guttmacher Institute should be viewed and utilized in the context of their mission to advance abortion services. The following statistics, graphs and charts are based on research published by the Guttmacher Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The most recent figures available for incidence statistics are from 2005, with the latest demographic information from 2004. Incidence of Abortion   

  







In 2005, 1.21 million abortions were performed in the U.S. From 1973 through 2005, more than 45 million abortions occurred in the U.S. The abortion ratio, the proportion of pregnancies ending in abortion, was 22.4. In other words, 22% of all pregnancies in the U.S. (excluding miscarriages) ended in abortion in 2005. The abortion rate, the number of abortions per a given subgroup, was 19.4 per 1,000 U.S. women aged 15-44. Each year, about 2% of U.S. women aged 15–44 have an abortion; 47% of them have had at least one previous abortion. 50% of U.S. women obtaining abortions are younger than 25. Women aged 20–24 obtain 33% of all abortions, and teenagers obtain 17%. Black women are 4.8 times as likely as non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are 2.7 times as likely. 37.1% of all abortions are performed on black women who make up only 14% of the total population of U.S. women of childbearing age. 54% of U.S. women who had an abortion in 2000-2001 had used a contraceptive method during the month they became pregnant.

MATTHEW’S GOSPEL CORNER In today's Gospel taken from John 1:29-34, John the Baptist, the one called to bear witness to Christ, succinctly describes Jesus' person, origin, and role. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, the pre-existing Son of the Father who became man to redeem us and send us the Holy Spirit. He is the Anointed One, the Messiah, God's Chosen. In just these few verses the evangelist encapsulates the entire Gospel message, pulling together in Christ imagery and prophesy from throughout the Scriptures, and most especially the imagery of the Lamb who was slain. In Egypt before the Exodus, God's chosen people were told to sacrifice an unblemished male lamb and apply its blood above the doors of their homes with a hyssop branch so that the angel of death would pass them by. They also partook of its flesh that they might be united to this paschal lamb. As the Book of Exodus recounts, “This is the Passover sacrifice to the LORD, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians" (Exodus 12:27). As recounted in the New Testament, the early Church quickly recognized in Jesus the new Pascal Lamb whose blood poured out, “takes away the sins of the world.” St. Peter proclaimed, “[Realize] that you were ransomed ... not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a spotless Lamb" (1 Peter 1:18-19). St. Paul wrote, “Christ our Passover has been sacrificed” (1 Corinthians 5:7). In John’s Gospel, Jesus is condemned to death at noon, the same time that the lamb is slain in the Temple, in recompense for sin. The evangelist details that Jesus was thrust with a sword in His side in fulfillment of the Scriptures so that “no bones may be broken,” just as “no bones may be broken” in the Passover lamb in Exodus 12:42. St. John recounts that a hyssop branch filled with wine was lifted to Jesus’ lips during His Passion to recall the hyssop branch that spared God’s chosen people from the angel of death. After the Resurrection, Jesus' disciples recognized in Jesus the Suffering Servant prophesied by Isaiah 53: "We had all gone astray like sheep, all following our own way; but the LORD laid upon him the guilt of us all." In 1 Peter 2:22-25 these same passages from Isaiah are applied to Christ: “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth. When he was insulted, he returned no insult; when he suffered, he did not threaten; instead, he handed himself over to the one who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body upon the cross, so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” Apocalyptic Jewish literature at the time of Christ also spoke of a Lamb of God who would conquer evil, shepherd God’s people, and bring recompense to the good and the bad. Similarly, John the Baptist warned of the coming wrath and before him the prophets spoke of the Day of Yahweh. It is not surprising then, that in the Book of Revelation, Jesus is described as the apocalyptic Lamb of God who destroys all evil: "They will fight with the Lamb, but the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, and those with him are called, chosen, and faithful” (Rev. 17:14). Christ is the Good Shepherd who has defeated death and will destroy sadness and sorrow: “For the Lamb will shepherd them and lead them to springs of life-giving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes” (Rev. 21:4). He is the exalted Lamb of God who draws all people to God: “I had a vision of a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation, race, people, and tongue. They stood before the throne and before the Lamb, wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice: ‘Salvation comes from our God, who is seated on the throne, and from the Lamb. Amen. Blessing and glory, wisdom and thanksgiving, honor, power, and might be to our God forever and ever. Amen’” (Rev. 7:12). At at the baptism of the Lord, the Spirit of God came to rest upon Jesus, signifying that He is God’s Chosen One, the Anointed, the Messiah, a descendent of the throne of David as Isaiah foretold: “But a shoot shall sprout from the stump* of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him” (Isaiah 11:2). This Spirit Jesus promises to send to His disciples throughout His public ministry and particularly before His Passion and death, as is seen in John’s Gospel (see John 3:5, 34; 7:38-39, especially Chapters 14, 16, and 20:22). The richness of God’s plan of salvation and the beauty of how that plan is revealed to us in the Scriptures is made known in today’s Gospel. And like the Israelites of old, we too are invited to partake of the Paschal Lamb, but the Lamb we share in is the Lord of Lords, and King of Kings. He is Son of God and Son of Mary, true God and true man. As this New Year begins, let us commit to discovering Christ anew in the Scriptures and in the Eucharist. Take time to read, reflect, and pray about the Sunday readings throughout the week. Read the New Testament or the Catechism of the Catholic Church, particularly the section on the Eucharist and the other sacraments. Consider committing to a weekly visit to the Adoration Chapel. Spend a few moments after Mass in Thanksgiving for whom you have just received, the Lamb of God, the One John the Baptist bore witness to. 1

BACK TO BASICS “What Bible should I Read?” So it’s a new year, and you’ve decided to spend more time reading God’s Word. A few practical questions may arise, starting with which Bible you should read. After all, there are all kinds of English versions of the Bible: The King James Version, the New King James Version, the New International Version, the New American Bible, the New Living Translation, the English Standard Version, the Revised Standard Version, the Message Bible, the Jerusalem Bible, and others… even a comic book version of the Bible called the Action Bible! Which Bible is the best to choose? First off, the best Bible is a worn-out Bible. That is, the best Bible is the Bible that is actually picked up and read, studied, and lived in. A big beautiful Bible that sits on the shelf or coffee table, but has clearly never been opened is not benefiting anyone. It’s nice to have the family heirloom Bible in which you record important dates and events, and which you hand down to the grandkids. But be sure you also have a Bible you can make notes in, highlight, and carry around with you. That being said, be sure you also have a Catholic edition of the Bible. Many people don’t know that Protestant versions of the Bible are seven books light compared to Catholic editions. Catholic versions of the Bible have seven more books in the Old Testament: 1&2 Maccabees, Judith, Tobit, Baruch, Wisdom, and Sirach, as well as additions to Esther and Daniel. This larger 46-book canon (or list) of the Old Testament can be dated to the very early church, in fact, this list goes back as early as official lists existed. Pope Damasus promulgated this Catholic list of Old Testament books at the Synod of Rome in A.D. 382, and later, at the regional councils of Hippo (393) and Carthage (397, 419), the Church again defined the same list of books as inspired. These are the same synods that determined and closed the 27-book canon of the New Testament that all Christians agree upon. This decision was ratified by the councils of II Nicea (787), Florence (1442), and Trent (1546). The great Church father St. Augustine (among many others) also accepted as biblical the seven books lacking in the Protestant Bible. So why do Protestant versions of the Bible lack these seven books while Catholic and Orthodox Bibles contain them? To give a very simplified explanation of this, it was thought that these seven books were written originally in Greek, while the rest of the Old Testament was written in Hebrew. The translation of the Old Testament used at the time of Christ and the Apostles was a Greek Translation known as the Septuagint which contained these seven books. This is the version most quoted in the New Testament. Around the year 100 AD, partially in reaction to Greek influences in Judaism, a group of Rabbis decided to fix their canon excluding these seven books. Many early Christians, however, maintained them in their own list of inspired books, though there is some early debate. In the 16th century, Martin Luther, along with the other Protestant Revolutionaries, rejected these books as part of scripture. This was due largely to the fact that these books clearly taught doctrines they disagreed with, such as Purgatory. Catholics, however, maintain the canon used by Christ, His Apostles, and the early Christians. So, be sure your Bible contains these seven books, often referred to as the Deuterocanonical books. But you may still be asking, “Which version should I read?” Here are a few suggestions: 

 

The Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition, often seen as the Ignatius Bible, is the version used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The New American Bible is the version used in the readings at Mass. The Jerusalem Bible and the Douay Rheims are also fine translations. Have a question about the Catholic faith?
