Parish Offering Program


As we continue our Planned Parish Offering Program we are asked to reflect on God’s blessings in
our lives and also to commit to share these financial blessings as a way to express our love for God
and for others.

Our Planned Parish Offering Program is one very important way to express our self-giving for the
good of others and for God’s greater glory. This week, each registered household will receive a
summary letter and Declaration of Intention Card. This program will conclude next two weekends
with Commitment Sunday. Please pray about this and return your intention card in next Sunday’s
offertory collection.

Your donation aids the parish in forecasting revenue for the next year. Reflect on your spending
priorities, consider where your parish is currently placed within them, and consider making a
planned, proportionate and sacrificial gift to our offertory program. Please respond lovingly and
generously, as you are able, giving from your first fruits in gratitude to God.

Reflecting on This Week’s Readings


Today we consider the call to continue the mission of Jesus by engaging in some form of ministry. The first
and the last readings are call narratives; the epistle contains a statement of the faith that undergirds our re-
sponse to our call; the psalm response celebrates the gracious goodness of God that makes all of this possi-
ble.

Our call is more than a summons to faith; it is a call to ministry. Isaiah is called in order to be sent; the fisher-
men are called in order to gather others to Jesus. So it is with us. We are called to be sent out to the world.
This call comes to us in the ordinariness of life. It will usually come to us as we wash our nets or our dishes,
as we teach or raise children, as we prepare a brief for trial or examine a patient; as we repair cars or work at
the computer. The call of God comes to us in the ordinariness of life.

We are called to proclaim the message of the resurrection by any and every means possible. Some, like
Isaiah and the disciples of Jesus, will witness in open and dramatic ways. They will teach and preach; they
will nurse the sick and care for the elderly. Others will witness in less conspicuous ways. They will insist on
fair practices in their own workplaces; they will weed out expressions of prejudice and violence so that a new
and just world can be fashioned for themselves and for their children. Called in the ordinariness of their lives,
they will witness to the death and resurrection in that very ordinariness, thus transforming everything into ex-
traordinariness.

Spiritual Communion
Do you feel too busy to make time for our Lord? An Act of Spiritual Communion can help! No matter what your day is like, Je-
sus can help make it better, or at least more bearable, if you ask him for His help and guidance in prayers such as this one,
composed by St. Alphonsus Liguori in the 18th century:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You
into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You
have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
The best way to receive Christ is in Holy Communion at Mass. (The picture above from a 19th century holy card commemo-
rates the first Communion given out by our Lord Himself at the Last Supper.)
Yet for those times you can’t make Mass, or can’t take Communion because of an unconfessed mortal sin (for which you can
ask for and receive God’s forgiveness in the Sacrament of Penance), you can still reach out to Him by making a Spiritual Com-
munion in prayer!
St. Thomas Aquinas once defined a Spiritual Communion as “an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament [in
Communion at Mass] and in lovingly embracing Him as if we had actually received Him.”
You can only receive the Lord in Holy Communion once a day (twice in special circumstances such when attending wedding,
funeral, or baptismal masses). However, you can make a Spiritual Communion whenever and wherever you'd like, using the
prayer given above, others like it such as the one below, or your own heartfelt thoughts.
It is an important part of Church teaching that the consecrated bread (in the form of wafers we call hosts) becomes what is
known as the Blessed Sacrament, referred to in St. Alphonsus’s prayer above.
Those hosts not used in Holy Communion at Mass are placed in a special box known as the Tabernacle to be given out later to
the sick or the dying who cannot attend Mass, and to be exposed otherwise for adoration in what is known as the Rite of Eu-
charistic Exposition and Benediction.
You can make a Spiritual Communion such as this one below during Mass, or before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, or
anywhere else where the Spirit moves you.
Oh Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot receive you in
Holy Communion. Come, nevertheless, and visit me with Your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Ren-
der it like unto Your own. Amen.
Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
This last sentence is drawn from Matthew’s Gospel (Matt 8:6), in which a Roman Centurion expressed his deep faith in our
Lord’s healing powers (in this case to cure his servant rather than his soul). Jesus was quite moved by the soldier’s faith, and
healed his servant at once.
Christ might not answer us quite so instantaneously, but rest assured, He can and will respond to anyone who comes to Him in
love and humility for His Divine assistance. After all, didn’t he say in the Sermon on the Mount, concerning the power of prayer,
“Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find” (Matt 7:7)?
Indeed, our Lord loves each of us so much that he gives us great opportunities to be with Him on a daily basis. If the Pope
came to your parish, you’d probably have to elbow your way through crowds of people
to catch a glimpse of him.
And yet, think of it! You can have your own private “audience” with Christ at Mass in Holy Communion or in Spiritual Commun-
ion in front of the Blessed Sacrament! Countless Saints and theologians throughout the centuries have extolled the virtues and
great spiritual benefits we can receive from this time spent with our Lord.
Remember, however, that you can “turn toward the holy tabernacle” and receive Jesus in your heart from anywhere you might
happen to be, at any time, day or night!
You just need to approach Him with sincerity, humility and a desire to follow in His footsteps in acts of faith and charity. And
He’s delighted when we do so! The Baltimore Catechism notes that a Spiritual Communion “is an act of devotion, and one very
pleasing to God.”
St. Jean-Marie Vianney, a French priest famous for converting countless souls to Christ in his parish of Ars in the 19th century,
once said “when we feel the love of God growing cold, let us instantly make a Spiritual Communion. When we cannot go to the
church, let us turn towards the tabernacle; no wall can shut us out from the good God.” We can indeed be grateful for that!

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops + Audit 2010


Dioceses will again be audited through the USCCB Office of Child and Youth Protection in 2010.
Parish Offices will receive a copy of Chart C/D to record statistics concerning parish/school employ-
ees and volunteers. They will also be asked to provide information about supply priests. Schools and
religious education programs will report their statistics directly to the Catholic Schools Office and the
Religious Education Office. Pastors will be asked to submit a letter to Bishop Sartain certifying that
1. diocesan approved safe environment educational programs have been presented to children and
youth of the parish; 2. all parish, school and religious education employees and volunteers have un-
dergone a criminal background investigation in accord with diocesan policy, and that documentation
for such is on file at the parish; 3. all parish, school and religious education employees and volun-
teers have attended the Virtus Protecting God’s Children program, and that documentation for such
is on file at the parish.

RECORD REVIEW: One of the responsibilities of deans during their annual parish visitations is to
check parish records, including compliance with safe environment requirements. Deans review files
to make sure that documentation (background check, attendance at Protecting God’s Children and
signed acknowledgement of the Pastoral Policy Regarding Sexual Abuse of Minors and the Stan-
dards of Behavior for Those Working with Minors) is on file for all employees and volunteers.

To facilitate record review, the pastor is asked to appoint one person at the parish, Eileen Maggiore
whose duty, along with the Pastor is to make sure that records of all parish, school and religious
education employees/volunteers reflect compliance with safe environment requirements.

These are instructions from Bishop Sartain to all Pastors that I want to share with you. The staff at
Christ the King assures you that we have a safe environment not only for our children and teens but
also for the adults. We strive daily to maintain the instructions and guidelines from the Joliet dioce-
san Chancery office and the United Sates Conference of Catholic Bishops. Any questions or clarifi-
cations, please contact my designate, Eileen Maggiore, Pastoral Associate. Let us pray through the
intercession of St. Joseph, the protector of the Universal Church that He with Mary may guide and
protect the church of Christ the King. ~ Fr. Jarosz, Pastor

civil authorities, are asked to come forward in order to
receive pastoral assistance. The Church has a
responsibility to help victims of sexual abuse and to
ensure that offenders are brought to justice. Reports may
be made to any pastor or to Sister Mary Frances Seeley
at (815) 263-6467. Contact DCFS at 1-800-25-ABUSE.
