THE REASON FOR OUR HOPE

“What is the reason for your hope?” Imagine somebody coming up to you and asking you that question. Not “What are you hoping for?” or “What are you hoping to do?” No, this isn’t about our desires for possessions or aspirations for life, it’s “Why do you hope?” Peter today tells us that we ought to be ready to give an answer to this question. Truth be told, few of us spend much time thinking about why we hope. Luckily, the scriptures today give us our answers. We hope because Christ suffered for us, in order that we might come to God. We hope because we know that, in the Spirit, God grants us another Advocate through Christ to remain with us always. No matter what we might hope for, whatever we might hope to do, we must always first know and proclaim the reason for our hope: the presence of God in Christ, with us through the power of the Spirit.

FROM FATHER RICH
I have good news and bad news. Which one do you want first? Lets start with the good news which goes to all children and it says that the school year 2010-2011 is coming to an end. Last Wednesday we had very nice and enjoyable Kindergarten Graduation and all our graduates proved that they are ready for the first grade. Do you remember your kindergarten graduation and going to the First Grade? Last Friday we celebrated the 8th Grade Graduation with the tears in our eyes because we were aware that we are saying goodbye to one of the best graduation classes in our parish. We wish them the best, we thank them for everything they did for our school and our parish and we hope that they will be around. That was the good news about Graduations and upcoming vacations. …..The bad news is that we have to go back to school and continue during the summer studying changes to the Roman Missal so we will be ready for Advent when the changes will be implemented. We hope that the questions and answers below will help you to prepare for the new translation. Is the Mass changing? The essence of the Mass is not changing, but the way it is celebrated will be noticeably different. While the structure and order of the Mass will remain the same, many of the prayers and responses of the liturgy have been newly translated into English from the original Latin text. In addition, new observances for recently canonized saints, additional prefaces for the Eucharistic prayers, additional Masses for various needs and intentions, and updated instructions for the overall celebration of the mass will be added. The most significant change people will notice, however, is the new translation of the actual words of the Mass. What are some examples of the changes made to the prayers of the Mass? A change everyone will notice at the very beginning of Mass is the people’s response to the priest’s greeting, The Lord be with you.” In place of the words “And also with you,” the congregation will reply, “And with your spirit” – wording that better reflects the biblical language of St. Paul in his letters (see Galatians 6:18; Philippians 4:23, 2 Timothy 4:22) and recognizes the unique work of the Holy Spirit through the ordained priest to celebrate the Eucharist. People will also notice a change in the opening word of the Nicene Creed. Instead of saying “We believe in one God…,” the congregation will begin “I believe in one God…,” a more personal expression of faith – as well as a more literal translation of the Latin text of the Creed. Tomorrow we will celebrate Memorial Day praying for all deceased, especially those who gave their lives for freedom and independence. We invite you to one of our morning Masses or to the Mass celebrated in Catholic Cemeteries. The schedule is printed on the following page. Have a Blessed and safe Memorial Day.

God Bless, Fr. Rich

Winners will be notified by the participating organization that distributed the BaseballMania ticket. All ticket stubs must be turned in by June 3, 2011 to St. Albert the Great School or rectory. Thank you for help! Have Questions? Contact Brenda @ 708-670-0675 or St. Albert School at 708-424-7757 FEAST OF FAITH

The Collection: A Privilege As the altar is prepared for the celebration of the Eucharist, the collection is taken up. In the early church, this part of the Mass must have been something to behold, as the people suddenly began to move, bringing forward to the deacons and priests freshly-baked bread and fine wine. Then, after the Eucharistic Prayer, that same community came forward again in the Communion procession, and they received back the very gifts they had given, now transformed into something infinitely more precious than bread and wine: the very Body and Blood of Christ. Beginning around the eleventh century, it became the custom for people to present money instead of bread and wine, and the procession of the faithful gradually disappeared (it survives in the liturgy of Holy Thursday). But the meaning is the same. We continue to bring the fruit of our labors and to offer them freely to God. And God continues to transform them into Christ. It is through our generous sharing of time, talent, and treasure that our parishes can preach the gospel, reach out to the sick and the imprisoned, and celebrate the sacraments. —Corinna Laughlin, © Copyright, J.

OD KS. RYSZARDA
„Jeżeli Mnie miłujecie, będziecie zachowywać moje przykazania”. (J 14, 15
Jednym z największych ciężarów, jakie z trudem dźwiga ludzkie serce, jest samotność. Nic tak nie boli jak puste miejsce pozostawione przez kogoś, kto odszedł. Nic tak nie sprawia przykrości, jak świadomość nigdy niekończącej się rozłąki. Dlatego Jezus żegnając się ze swoimi uczniami, zapewnia: Nie zostawię was sierotami (J 14, 18). Mówi tak, ponieważ ich kocha, a kochać, to być obecnym. Jezus pozostał z nami w Eucharystii oraz przez dar Parakleta – Ducha Świętego, którego przyjście zapowiada w dzisiejszej Ewangelii. Duch Święty jednoczący Syna z Ojcem jest sprawcą naszej komunii z Bogiem. Greckie paracletos pochodzi z języka sądowego i oznacza obrońcę, adwokata, a także świadka, który zeznaje na korzyść oskarżonego. Duch Święty, którego otrzymają Apostołowie stanie się źródłem wewnętrznej mocy do dawania świadectwa Jezusowi wobec tych, którzy Go odrzucają. To ktoś niezwykle potrzebny w sporze, jaki chrześcijanin będzie musiał toczyć ze światem. W piątek, 20-go maja uroczystą Maszą Świętą zakończyliśmy rok szkolny 2010-11 w Polskiej Szkole im. Mikołaja Reja przy Parafii Świętego Alberta. My Kapłani, którzy uczyliśmy Katechezy przygotowując dzieci do 1-szej Komunii i młodzież do Sakramentu Bierzmowania dziękujemy dyrekcji szkoły, rodzicom i dzieciom za wyrazy szczerej wdzięczności. Zapewniamy o pamięci modlitwewnej w intencji szkoły i tych wszystkich, którzy są z tą szkołą związani. Przypominamy, że nie ma wakacji od Boga i dlatego zapraszamy wszystkie dzieci z rodzinami do Kościoła na Pierwszy Piątek miesiąca czerwca. Spowiedź będzie od godziny 5:00 do 6:00 a o godzinie 6:00-tej będzie Msza Święta o Najświętszym Sercu Pana Jezusa. Poniedziałek, 30-go maja jest obchodzony w USA jako dzień pamięci o zmarłych, a zwłaszcza tych którzy oddali życie za wolność ojczyzny. Msze Święte będą odprawione w tym dniu na różnych cmentarzach i rozklad tych Mszy Świętych jest zamieszczony w biuletynie. W naszej Parafii w tym dniu będzie Msza Świeta za wszystkich zmarłych z naszych rodzin i tych których imiona wypisane są w Księdze Zawierzenia Błogosławionemu Janowi Pawłowi II umieszczonej w kaplicy Matki Bożej przy obrazie Ojca Świętego o godzinie 6:00 pm połączona z ostatnią Majówką. Święto Wniebowstąpienia Pańskiego przypada w tym roku w czwartek 2-go czerwca, ale w USA święto to jest przeniesione na niedzielę i będziemy obchodzić je uroczyście w niedzielę 5-go czerwca.

Szczęść Boże, Ks. Ryszard

W niedzielę 12 czerwca o godz. 1;30 pm zostanie odprawiona w naszym Kościele Msza Święta Odpustowa “Koła Skrzypne”.
Po Mszy Świętej w sali pod Kościołem zostanie podany smaczny obiad, a po nim rozpocznie się zabawa. Do tańca przygrywać będzie zespół “Millenium”. Cały dochód przeznaczony jest na remont plebanii w Skrzypnym. Bilety są w cenie $20.00 - dorośli, $10.00 - dzieci. Bilety można już nabywać po Mszy Świętej lub w tygodniu w kancelarii parafialnej. Do udziału w tej zabawie zachęcamy zaprzyjaźnione Góralskie Koła oraz wszystkich parafian! Telefon kontaktowy: Jan Mrowca 780-430-9518
