A Message from our Pastor October 1, 2013 Memorial of St. Therese Dear Parishioners, Respect Life October is designated as Respect Life Month by the US bishops and the first Sunday in October as Respect Life Sunday. During this month, we are reminded of the Sanctity of every human life from conception to a natural death. As Pope Francis has said quoting Pope Benedict: “If personal and social sensibility is lost to welcoming a new life, other forms of reception useful to social life are hardened. The reception of life tempers moral energies and makes possible mutual help’ (n. 28). The paradoxical situation is seen in the fact that, while new rights are attributed to the person, sometimes even presumed, life is not always protected as primary value and primordial right of every man. The ultimate end of medical action always remains the defense and promotion of life.” So, too, we are all called to hold up the protection of life at all stages as paramount. Let us pray for a fostering of the culture of life in our nation and our community. Pro-Life Display Thank you to our American Heritage girls and our Boy Scouts for setting up our prolife display in the front yard of the parish. Please respect them as you would want to be respected. October and Mary The month of October is also an important month dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and at the very center of the month, October 13th, we celebrate the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima. This feast commemorates the apparitions of our Lady to three small children in the town of Fatima, Portugal at the start of the 20th century. Pope Francis will be consecrating the entire Church to Mary on that day, Bishop Conlon the Diocese of Joliet and we will be consecrating our parish on the same day to the Protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Please watch for more details in the parish bulletin. Convocation Every other year, all Diocesan priests are required by the bishop to be in attendance at the three day priest convocation. Although all three priests will be gone from Monday afternoon through Thursday evening this week, we will still have a full schedule of weekday Masses. Confessions will be cancelled during this time. If you need a priest for some other need, please phone the parish office and we will do our best to put you in touch with a priest. Fr. Cassian Folsom We thank Fr. Cassian Folsom, OSB, who is the founding prior of the Monastery of St. Benedict at Norcia, Italy, the birth place of St. Benedict and St. Scholastica. Fr. Cassian is the former President of the Pontifical Liturgical Institute at St. Anselmo and consultor to the Congregation for Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. As an authority on the Liturgy, he enjoyed celebrating the Eucharist here with us and complements you all on your chanting! Rome Trip and Canonization of Blessed Pope John Paul You may remember that our parish is offering a pilgrimage to Rome the week after Easter with our parish choir. It just so happens that Pope John Paul will be canonized a saint during the time of our trip and we will have the opportunity to attend that canonization. The trip is not restricted to members of our choir. Although we still have some spots available, these will go quickly as the formal announcement of his canonization was made yesterday. If you would like to obtain more information or sign up for the trip, please log onto our parish webpage and click on the “Rome Pilgrimage” banner. May Almighty God bless you and keep you.

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas A. Milota

ANOINTING OF THE SICK MASS On October 27th, 2013, at the 12:30p.m. Mass, we will celebrate a special Anointing of the Sick Mass in conjunction with the Prayer Shawl Ministry. The Catechism of the Catholic Church and the ritual directives have this to say about the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick:

Anointing of the Sick

"The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick has as its purpose the conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age. (1527) The proper time for receiving this holy anointing has certainly arrived when the believer begins to be in danger of death because of illness or old age.(1528) Each time a Christian falls seriously ill, he may receive the Anointing of the Sick, and also when, after he has received it, the illness worsens. (1529)" (Catechism of the Catholic Church) The Anointing of the Sick is not only for the critically ill, it also applies to those who are presently involved or are going to be involved in a prolonged health procedure, those facing or recuperating from major surgery, those entering hospice care or facing other serious health events. Those wishing to receive the sacrament, please RSVP to Paulette Shea, at 718-2127 by Friday, October 25th.

is at a historic crossroad. Secularists are trying to remove God from the public square. They reject His beneficial action upon society. But without God, where will our leaders get the wisdom to solve the great problems we face? At this point of our country’s history, our religious freedom is at stake. We must not allow the secularists to advance their agenda. We must pray to God for help. He will hear us, if we pray through the intercession of His Blessed Mother. In The Secret of the Rosary, Saint Louis de Montfort said:

“Public prayer is far more powerful than private prayer to appease the anger of God and call down His mercy, and Holy Mother Church, guided by the Holy Ghost, has always advocated public prayer in times of public tragedy and suffering.” So please come and join us: What:

The Holy Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet and other Marian Prayers.

Where: The Corner of Washington and Benton Streets in downtown Naperville. (In front of the IVF clinic) When:

Saturday, October 12th, at 12:00 Noon.
