According to a decree . . . made public October 5, 2012, and signed by Cardinal Manuel Monteiro de Castro and Bishop Krzysztof Nykiel, respectively penitentiary major and regent of the Apostolic Penitentiary, Benedict XVI will grant faithful Plenary Indulgence for the occasion of the Year of Faith. The indulgence will be valid from the opening of the Year on 11 October 2012 until its end on 24 November 2013. "The day of the fiftieth anniversary of the solemn opening of Vatican Council II", the text reads, "the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI has decreed the beginning of a Year especially dedicated to the profession of the true faith and its correct interpretation, through the reading of - or better still the pious meditation upon - the Acts of the Council and the articles of the Catechism of the Catholic Church". "Since the primary objective is to develop sanctity of life to the highest degree possible on this earth, and thus to attain the most sublime level of pureness of soul, immense benefit may be derived from the great gift of Indulgences which, by virtue of the power conferred upon her by Christ, the Church offers to everyone who, following the due norms, undertakes the special prescripts to obtain them". "During the Year of Faith, which will last from 11 October 2012 to 24 November 2013, Plenary Indulgence for the temporal punishment of sins, imparted by the mercy of God and applicable also to the souls of deceased faithful, may be obtained by all faithful who, truly penitent, take Sacramental Confession and the Eucharist and pray in accordance with the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff. (A) Each time they attend at least three sermons during the Holy Missions, or at least three lessons on the Acts of the Council or the articles of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in church or any other suitable location. (B) Each time they visit, in the course of a pilgrimage, a papal basilica, a Christian catacomb, a cathedral church or a holy site designated by the local ordinary for the Year of Faith (for example, minor basilicas and shrines dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Apostles or patron saints), and there participate in a sacred celebration, or at least remain for a congruous period of time in prayer and pious meditation, concluding with the recitation of the Our Father, the Profession of Faith in any legitimate form, and invocations to the Blessed Virgin Mary and, depending on the circumstances, to the Holy Apostles and patron saints. (C) Each time that, on the days designated by the local ordinary for the Year of Faith, ... in any sacred place, they participate in a solemn celebration of the Eucharist or the Liturgy of the Hours, adding thereto the Profession of Faith in any legitimate form. (D) On any day they chose, during the Year of Faith, if they make a pious visit to the baptistery, or other place in which they received the Sacrament of Baptism, and there renew their baptismal promises in any legitimate form."

A Stewardship Prayer for October
On October 11, 1962, Blessed Pope John XXIII prayed the following prayer to open the Second Vatican Council. Thereafter, the bishops at the Council continued to pray this prayer together before every session.

Jesus offers a hard lesson regarding wealth and possessions in today’s Gospel. The rich man whom he encountered could not part with his possessions as a condition to becoming a disciple of Jesus. Would our response be the same as the rich man? Do we place our trust in our money and possessions instead of trusting in God’s generosity? Do we seek security in our possessions? Good stewards realize that their possessions must not possess them, lest those possessions block their relationship with the Lord.

We stand before you, Holy Spirit, conscious of our sinfulness, but aware that we gather in your name. Come to us, remain with us, and enlighten our hearts. Give us light and strength to know your will, to make it our own, and to live it in our lives. Guide us by your wisdom, support us by your power, for you are God, sharing the glory of Father and Son. You desire justice for all: enable us to uphold the rights of others; do not allow us to be misled by ignorance; or corrupted by fear or favor. Unite us to yourself in the bond of love And keep us faithful to all that is true. As we gather in your name may we temper justice with love, so that all our decisions may be pleasing to you, and earn the reward promised to good and faithful servants. You live and reign with the Father and the Son, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Stewardship involves a change of heart, embodied not just in a single action, nor even a series of actions, but in one’s entire life.

Bean bag toss game results at the Festival of Faith.
I would like to thank all those who participated at the bean bag toss game/tournament held during the Festival of Faith on October 7th. This includes the Nilson, Benshoof, Pierscionek, Watts, and Lukaszek families, and the Lombard Park District, who lent us the use of their boards and bag sets. We also had Austin, Carol, Emma and Max play each other in the 12 and under tournament. Congratulations to Carol and Emma. Alex and Allysa, Alex and Annie, Lillian and Ivan, Kimberly and Regina, Nick, and Anna all competed in the 13 to 20 age bracket, with Alex and Allysa ending up on top. We ended the day with Joe, John, Kevin, Matt, Debbie, and Deacon Peter, Bob and Joyce, and Mark and Roberta playing in a very closely contested set of rounds for those 21 and over. Mark and Roberta ended up winners in the final match. A good time was had, and excellent sportsmanship was exhibited, by everyone. And everyone who participated went home with a prize. Finally, a special thanks to Nick, Victor, Matt, Chuck, and everyone else who helped set up, and tear down the games area. Matt Novak

Respect Life Month "FAITH OPENS OUR EYES TO HUMAN LIFE IN ALL IT'S GRANDEUR AND BEAUTY" Dear Sister and Brother in Christ, The theme of this year's Respect Life Program is one often expressed by our Holy Father, Benedict XVI: "Faith opens our eyes to human life in all its grandeur and beauty." This simple yet profound quote serves as our call during these special weeks to develop within our own hearts and minds a Christian Anthropology, a vision of humankind that embraces and protects the sacredness and dignity of life. We all remember the story of Creation we learned early in our days of catechism, how in Genesis God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness... And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. And God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and steward it; provide care for the fish of the sea and for the birds of the sky, and for every living thing that moves on the earth..., And God saw all that He had made and said it was very good." Gen. 1:26-31 The Creation Story speaks to us of how each individual is called into being, unique and personally loved by the Creator, and by that love is invited into a personal relationship with God. Created by an act of God's love, and designed for God's love, we are not our true human selves until we surrender ourselves to that Love. We are created for a love, which while very personal, is not private, but rather finds its fullest expression in relationship with others. That is, we were made in the image of the Triune God, a God of eternal community. We were created for relationship with that Community of God, and for each other, "male and female He created them," leading forth into a glorious celebration of love that multiplies through children, families, neighbors, communities, and strangers throughout the earth. This celebration of love extends even into all of creation. Somehow, who God is, and who we are in God, this sacred and dignified vision of human kind, is expressed even in how we relate to creation. How wonderful is God's plan for us! And so, in this Respect Life Month, we embrace this vision, and we commit to protect it from all threats. We resists efforts to limit our ability to express our love for God, measures that would restrict the practice of our faith in the public arena, remembering that our faith while personal is also social and must find concrete expression there, unfettered by government interference. We speak on behalf of the unborn threatened in the womb, and mourn for the million babies each year who are lost to God's first vision for them. We seek to strengthen marriage as first revealed in the Creation Story. We work to ensure that families and by extension all societies, have their basic needs met, that they might live with a dignity which reflects the sacredness of God's design. We reach out to the stranger, the refugee, the immigrant, all those who wander seeking a place to live with freedom and dignity. We do all these things and more, as God may stir each individual to a special task, in proclaiming the Sacredness and Dignity of Human Life. In Christ, Tom Garlitz, Director

New Hymnals for Our Parish
Christ the King Parish will introduce a new hymnal this coming Advent. After researching the many publishers’ options, we have chosen the new Gather Third Edition hardbound hymnal as our principle liturgical resource. This new hymnal will include much of the loved music our community is familiar with, but also offers much new music. The hymnal will also include the scripture readings and mass parts for us all in the same book. Why would we change our pew books after so many years? There are several answers to this question: It’s the Economically Best Choice: Our current resource is the Music Issue and Today’s Missal. These are yearly subscriptions. Just as you subscribe to your favorite magazine, Christ the King subscribes to 800 copies of these two “magazines” or music books/missalettes. Although the yearly cost is less than the cost of the new hymnals, it is still a recurring cost! One of the main reasons for a hardbound hymnal is that it is expected to last about 10 years. This adds up to tens of thousands of dollars in savings over 10 years! It’s an Earth-Friendly / Green Choice: We are all stewards of God’s creation. Think for a moment, about the 800 music issue books that are replaced yearly; then think of the 800 Missalettes that are replaced quarterly; that is a lot of paper! Also, think about all the shipping too! We receive 5 shipments a year with our current resource. That is a lot of fuel and CO2 emissions. It’s Local: Our current publisher is located in Portland, Oregon. The distance increases shipping costs, and also the amount of time to receive new materials from the publisher. Gather Third Edition is published by GIA Publications, and is located right here in Chicago. So, how are we going to fund this large purchase? As I stated earlier, the cost of these books, in the long-run, will give us significant savings. However, there is still the large, up-front cost that must be paid for. Christ the King Parish would like to offer the opportunity for our parishioners to purchase a book as a memorial for a loved one, or in celebration of a milestone in one’s life. Some examples include memorializing your loved one after death, recognizing an anniversary or other important event in a loved one’s life, etc.. More information about memorials for the hymnals will be printed in upcoming bulletins. This is an exciting time for our parish. Some may be weary about new hymnals, thinking that all of our music will be new. This is nothing to worry about. Yes, the new book will give us the opportunity to learn new music, but much of our repertoire does not have to change because we are changing the books. If you have any questions regarding our new Hymnal, please feel free to talk with me after mass. You can also contact me at the rectory via telephone, 630.396.6075, or email, Bill Runge - Director of Music and Liturgy

Election 2012
Election 2012
This is the third of four bulletin inserts to offer guidance and reflection points from Illinois’ Catholic Bishops in preparation for the elections of November 6, 2012. The first insert was an introduction to this effort. The second insert discussed the expectations of a well-formed conscience. (Go to for a copy of the first and second insert.)

“Christ…fully reveals man to man himself and makes his supreme calling clear.” –Gaudium et Spes, 22 As followers of Jesus Christ, we understand the human person in light of the mystery of the Incarnation. HUMAN DIGNITY flows both from our origin (being created in the image and likeness of God) and from our ultimate destiny, which is communion with God. Legitimate concern for the material well-being of all must never eclipse our concern for their spiritual and moral well-being. [Matthew 10:28] The preciousness of every human being demands our concern for well-being of all, beginning with those closest to us for whom we bear the greatest responsibility, and with a special concern for the weakest and most vulnerable among us and for future generations. The moral imperative to respond to the fundamental needs of our neighbors—needs such as food, shelter, basic health care, education, and meaningful work—is universally binding on our conscience, but may be legitimately fulfilled by a variety of means. These responsibilities cannot be simply delegated to the State.1 As the Catechism reminds us, “It is not the role of the Pastors of the Church to intervene directly in the political structuring and organization of social life. This task is part of the vocation of the lay faithful, acting on their own initiative with their fellow citizens.”2 Relying on well-formed consciences, Catholics citizens must use prudence in responding to these needs and serving the COMMON GOOD. While there may be many legitimate ways to address the needs of our neighbors, there are some actions which are always and everywhere immoral. As Catholics, we must recognize that not all issues carry the same moral weight. The continuing slaughter of innocent children through legal abortion—to take the most appalling example of such “intrinsic evil”—is a grave offense against God and our own human dignity, and cries out for justice. Accordingly, “the moral obligation to oppose intrinsically evil acts has a special claim on our consciences and our actions.”3 Those who knowingly, willingly and directly support public policies or legislation that protect and perpetuate such injustice cooperate with that grave evil. Candidates who promise to support the common good, while at the same time glossing over their support for intrinsic evils such as abortion, perpetrate a lie. Catholic candidates who do so are also a cause of scandal among the faithful. Finally, two other issues of particular importance in this election year demand our attention. The first is marriage: the permanent, faithful relationship of a man and a woman as husband and wife is the root of a family and the foundation for all of society. The decline of marriage in our culture has already inflicted untold spiritual and material costs upon society and individuals alike. Attempts to redefine marriage are contrary to the natural and moral law and only serve to further erode this fundamental institution. The defense of marriage is a matter of social justice. The second issue— which is of such pressing importance that the final insert, beginning on October 28th, will address it specifically—is religious freedom.
