A LENTEN THOUGHT! ~ ¡UN PENSAMIENTO!
CURB THE PALATE! Our bodies are the Temples of the Holy Spirit and it is our obligation to keep them strong for the service of God and for the salvation of other souls. We are athletes and soldiers of Christ fighting for the prize of eternal life. Let us wage the battle and conquer our gluttony and as such, achieve and experience the true freedom of the sons and daughters of God! ….On both Ash Wednesday and Good Friday fasting is obligatory… and Lent is a Penitential Season in its totality! Examine your eating habits! If you have a tendency to overeat, then Lent is the time to curb and conquer the “Glutton” you have within you! As a result of Original Sin, Gluttony is a dominant tendency. If we tend to eat too much, then to fast from foods that we like but may not be beneficial is good for our health. FRENAR LA BOCA! Nuestros cuerpos son templos del Espíritu Santo y es nuestra obligación de mantenerlos fuertes para el servicio de Dios y por la salvación de otras almas. Somos deportistas y soldados de Cristo que luchan por el premio de la vida eterna. Vamos a librar la batalla y conquistar nuestra gula y, como tal, lograr y experimentar la verdadera libertad de los hijos e hijas de Dios! ….Por tanto Miércoles de Ceniza y Viernes Santo son el ayuno obligatorio... y la Cuaresma es un Temporada de Penitencia en su totalidad! Examine sus hábitos alimenticios! Si usted tiene una tendencia a comer en exceso, entonces la Cuaresma es tiempo de frenar y vencer la "Glotón" tienes dentro de ti! Como consecuencia del Pecado Original, la Gula es una tendencia dominante. Si tendemos a comer demasiado, entonces ayunar de alimentos que nos gustan, pero que no pueden ser beneficioso es bueno para nuestra salud.

THE SINS OF AVARICE/GREED & GLUTTONY - LENTEN SERIES - PART 2
The Sin of Greed: - "He who loves money never has money enough" - cf. Sirach 5:8
- "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." - Exodus 20:17 - "But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, 'You are my God.'" - Psalm 31:15
Avarice/Greed: there are at least three forms of greed: 1) an obsessive desire for ever more material goods and the attendant power. 2) a fearful need to store up surplus goods for a vaguely defined time of want. 3) a desire for more earthly goods for their own sake. The Greed of Power: In this form, earthly goods are chiefly a means to an end, which is really not that far off from a healthy view. The money, real estate, and cars are simply things used to achieve, wield and display personal power. These things can be used to intimidate or bribe others, reinforce one's own illusions about what is important or to build up a feeling of success... the "products of wealth". The real problem here is more the desire for power than the actual greed. A common thread for sin in general is that it is often borne out of fear. A fear of helplessness or loss of control can turn into a lust for power as a way of preventing an undesirable situation. The parable of the man with an abundant harvest is well worth considering.
To destroy our desire for power, we must be generous in granting power to others. When appropriate, be submissive to others. Avoid jobs that are a temptation for a "power grab". Share credit for successes with others, and claim a fair share of responsibility for failures being blamed on others. The idea is to stop trying to control everything and everyone. In parenting, this means encouraging children to find their own way, and respecting their choices. It does not mean abdicating legitimate responsibilities, but loosening our grip on others' lives as well as our own. God will take care of us, He has the plan. We can't control everything anyway, so we might as well learn to relax in God's hands.
Generosity overcomes the sin of Greed/Avarice.
- How Much Pleasure Is Enough? - "Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. " - 1 Corinthians 7:5 The chief error about Gluttony is to think it only pertains to food. Some people can't have enough toys, television, entertainment, internet, alcohol, sex, or company. It is about an excess of anything. There are at least three forms of Gluttony: 1) Wanting more pleasure from something than it was made for. 2) Wanting it exactly our way (delicacy). 3) Demanding too much from people (excessive desire for other people's time or presence). It is possible to become so caught up in a pleasure, whether food or fun, that we can no longer enjoy other things, and would be willing to sacrifice other pleasures for the one. We enter into Gluttony when we demand more pleasure from something than it was made for. Normally, we can only eat so much food, but some people in Ancient Rome wanted more pleasure, so they threw up after the meal and then ate more. This allowed them to enjoy eating more at the cost of health (and dignity). Delicacy: In "The Screwtape Letters," C.S. Lewis describes delicacy as a desire to have things exactly our way. He gives the example of food having to be prepared just right, or in just the right amount. There is a certain amount of discomfort to be expected in life, but the Glutton will have none of it! Instead of becoming strong by suffering the minor inconveniences of life, the Glutton insists on being pampered. Even in marriage, it is possible for a couple to be so "romantic" that the children are neglected. The cure for Gluttony lies in deliberately reducing our use of pleasurable things, not in eliminating them.
The Sin of Gluttony:
Faith and Moderation overcome the sin of Gluttony.
LOS PECADOS DE AVARICIA/CODICIA Y GLOTONERÍA ~ SERIA CUARESMAL ~ PARTE 2
El Pecado de la Codicia: - "Aquel que ama el dinero, nunca tiene suficiente." - cf. Sir 5:8
- "No codiciarás la casa de tu prójimo. No codiciarás la mujer de tu prójimo, ni su criada, ni su buey o su asno, ni cosa alguna de tu prójimo". - Éxodo 20:17 - "Pero yo confío en ti, SEÑOR, y te digo: Tú eres mi Dios." - Salmo 31:15 Avaricia/Codicia: hay al menos tres formas de codicia: 1) un deseo obsesivo de bienes materiales y de poder. 2) una necesidad temerosa de almacenar bienes de sobra durante un tiempo vagamente definido que quiera. 3) un deseo de más bienes terrenales por su propio bien. La Codicia de Poder: En esta forma, los bienes terrenales son principalmente un medio para un fin, que no es realmente tan lejos de una visión saludable. El dinero, bienes raíces, los carros son simplemente cosas que se usan para alcanzar, ejercer y mostrar su poder personal. Estas cosas pueden ser utilizadas para intimidar o sobornar a los demás, reforzar las ilusiones acerca de lo que es importante o para crear una sensación de éxito... de los "productos de la riqueza". El verdadero problema aquí es más el deseo de poder que de la codicia real. Un hilo común por el pecado, en general, es que es a menudo asumido por el miedo. El temor a la impotencia o pérdida de control puede convertirse en una ambición de poder como una forma de evitar una situación indeseable. La parábola del hombre con una abundante cosecha vale la pena considerar. Para destruir a nuestro deseo de poder, debemos ser generosos en la concesión de poder a los demás. Cuando asignado, esté es sumiso a otros. Evite los trabajos que son una tentación para "agarrar el poder". Comparta el mérito de los éxitos con otros, y reclame una parte justa de la responsabilidad de los fallos de culpa con los demás. La idea es dejar de intentar controlar todo y todos. En la crianza de los hijos, esto significa animar a los niños a encontrar su propio camino, respetando sus decisiones. Esto no significa abdicar de las responsabilidades legítimas, pero aflojando nuestro control sobre las vidas de otros, así como la nuestra. Dios cuidará de nosotros, Él tiene el plan. No podemos controlar todo, por lo que también podríamos aprender a relajarnos en las manos de Dios.
La Generosidad supera el pecado de la Codicia/Avaricia.
El pecado de la Glotonería:
- ¿Cuánto el Placer Es Suficiente? - "No os neguéis el uno al otro sino de mutuo acuerdo, por cierto tiempo, para daros a la oración." - 1 Corintios 7:5
El error principal sobre la Glotonería es pensar que sólo se refiere a los alimentos. Algunas personas no pueden tener suficientes juguetes, televisiones, entretenimiento, internet, alcohol, sexo, o compañía. Es sobre un exceso de algo. Hay al menos tres formas de glotonería: 1) Querer más placer de algo de lo que fue hecho. 2) Querer es exactamente nuestro camino (delicadeza). 3) Exigir demasiado de la gente (deseo excesivo del tiempo de los demás o de su presencia). Es posible llegar a estar atrapados en un placer, ya sea comida o diversión, que ya no podemos disfrutar de otras cosas, y que estaría dispuesto a sacrificar otros placeres. Entramos en la glotonería cuando exigimos más placer de algo para lo que fue hecho. Normalmente, sólo se puede comer tanta comida, pero algunas personas en la antigua Roma querían más placer, por lo que vomitaron después de la comida y luego comieron más. Esto les permitió disfrutar de comer más a costa de su salud (y de su dignidad). Delicadeza: En "Las Cartas de un Diablo a su Sobrino," Sr. CS Lewis describe delicadeza como un deseo de tener las cosas exactamente en nuestro modo. Él da el ejemplo de los alimentos que tienen que estar preparados apenas a la perfección, o en la cantidad perfecta. Hay un cierto grado de malestar que se espera en la vida, pero la Glotonería no tiene nada de eso! En lugar de ser fuerte por el sufrimiento de los pequeños inconvenientes de la vida, la Glotonería insiste en ser mimado. Incluso en el matrimonio, es posible que una pareja al ser tan "romántica" descuiden a los niños. La cura para la glotonería se encuentra en reducir deliberadamente el consumo de las cosas placenteras, no en la eliminación de ellos.
La Fe y la Moderación supera el pecado de Glotonería.

SAINT JOSEPH’S DAY TABLE 2013 FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013 5 00 p.m.—7:00 p.m.
In Italy, it was known to all the people that the patron saint of the family was St. Joseph. Word spread that when someone was gravely ill in the family the prayers to St. Joseph began in earnest. The person offering prayers promised in thanksgiving to cook and offer a “table” laden with food for anyone who was hungry. Thus in a sense the “alms” were given to announce to all that St. Joseph had granted (through our Lord) the plea presented. Every year a large table was set up during Lent which was naturally a time of fasting and abstaining from meat; thus the custom of the table being meatless. We continue this tradition each year at Saint John the Baptist Parish. Please join us for a planning meeting this
coming week at the home of George and Karen Tsaparis. Call 630-917-0565 for the date and directions. The Saint Joseph’s Day Table is open to all parishioners and will be held in the school hall on Friday, March 15th
from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. Those interested in bringing a meatless dish to grace the table, please e-mail us, or fill out the form below and drop it in the basket at mass or at the rectory.

On Wednesday February 13th at the 1:40 p.m. Children’s Mass we celebrated the beginning and meaning of Lent with the “St. Vincent de Paul Faith Family” our Resource Teacher, Mrs. Julie Noonan and Fifth grade and First Grade. We spoke on the Love of God for all of us. We invite all to join our children’s Masses that are held on most Tuesdays at 1:40 pm (check the bulletin to make sure we
have it on the week you wish to attend).
St. John the Baptist School News - In the Spotlight
We are so blessed at SJB to have an amazing teaching staff. However, many of us only really know the teachers we come in direct contact with through our kids. We have created a series called "In the Spotlight" to help introduce our teachers to our entire school and parish community. The teachers answered a series of questions about themselves. We have included photos as well to assist all in recognizing our educators at school events. We hope you enjoy this information!
My name is Suzanne Pepping and I teach preschool at St. John the Baptist. I have been teaching in the Joliet Diocese for 23 years and at SJB for 13 years. I have a Bachelor degree in Elementary Education from Northern Illinois University and recently completed a second certificate in early childhood education from National Louis University. I am the mother of two adult children both in their twenties. I attended a Catholic school as a child and my two children did as well. My parish is St. Katherine Drexel in Sugar Grove. In my free time, I like to write and read. I enjoy reading about early childhood education and am quite passionate about how preschool children learn and develop. I also enjoy taking classes at the Vaughn Athletic Center and I especially like Yoga. I have owned horses in the past, but currently I only have 2 cats (Cujo and Bob Marley) While it will sound cliché, my favorite part about teaching is the children! They make me laugh and put a smile on my face and in my heart everyday that I spend with them. They are the reason I returned to school to obtain a second certificate…I want to know how their minds work and the most developmentally appropriate way to teach them. I have wonderful memories from my time spent at SJB, but my favorite memories would be the annual Preschool Spring Sing and the 8th Grade Graduation. I have a chance to see my preschool students shine as well as my former students leaving SJB after a job well done!
St. John the Baptist Council of Catholic Women is participating in the Bishop Blanchette Scholarship award given by the Joliet Diocese CCW to students attending a Catholic High School in the Joliet Diocese. Applications must be filed in St. John’s parish office by March 15th. If you are interested in applying, pick up a packet in the parish office or send an email requesting the information to:firstname.lastname@example.org An application must also be filed with the FACTS program by March 22. If your family has submitted a FACTS application for the upcoming year for another award, you are still eligible for the JDCCW-BBSF scholarship. Call FACTS at 1-800-390-4690 and request to be added to the Joliet Diocesan Council of Catholic Women awards. The FACTS application is separate from what is submitted to St. John’s parish. St. John’s CCW does not review the financial information an applicant submits. St. John’s CCW reviews the questions applicants and their parent(s) answer and recommendations from their school principal and/or our REO director, Maureen Brennan. An applicant also must have our pastor, Fr. Tom Cargo, sign that he or she is a member of the parish, extent of family involvement and any known extraordinary circumstances. St. John’s CCW can only submit one applicant to the JDCCW; therefore the candidate selected from St. John’s will be based on the application information submitted to our parish office by March 15th. If you have further questions, contact Venessa Lopatka at 630-336-5414 or email@example.com
