Students, and most adults recalling their school days, are familiar with the phrase compare and contrast that shows up from time to time on tests. Today we hear two different accounts of the giving of the Holy Spirit to the Church. Lets contrast, then compare. Lukes account from Acts is filled with arresting details: the mighty wind from heaven, the tongues of flame, the miracle of different languages. Johns account seems timid: fearful disciples, the wounded Christ, the expelling of breath from his risen body, not from the sky. Our literal, modern minds wonder which way it happened; our noisy culture probably makes us prefer the former. But if we compare the two, we find that the dazzling richness of the Spirit fills both accounts, for it is the very breath of the risen Christ, ascended to the sky in Luke, that appears to his disciples in John and sends his followers forth to carry on his mission of forgiving sin and proclaiming the mighty acts of God.

Dear Friends in Christ, On the weekend of June 1112, 2011, the special second collection is for the Retired Priests of the Archdiocese. The retired priests celebrate Mass and sacraments in hundreds of parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Chicago. Without their dedicated service, many parishes would need to reduce the number of Masses celebrated each weekend. Some retired priests are called upon to be temporary administrators of parishes and others fill in to allow pastors some needed time off. Our senior priests do this willingly as a continuation of the many years that they have faithfully served our Church. Please join me in offering our retired priests words of appreciation and gratitude for their many years of priestly ministry. The Priests Retirement and Mutual Aid Association (PRMAA) cares for our retired priests. This year, as is the case in every family, we have seen the cost of health care, prescription drugs, and nursing-home care increase. In addition, the priests pension fund remains seriously impacted by the economic downturn. This special collection will help us continue to support our retired priests. You may be aware that the December collection for retired men and women Religious is designated to provide only for those in Religious Orders. Archdiocesan priests do not receive any funds from this collection. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our retired priests for their lives and their exemplary ministry. We are blessed to have more than one hundred retired priests ministering in our parishes. May their spirit continue to enliven our Church! I am thankful to all of you for your remarkable generosity in this collection last year. I ask you to repeat your kindness this year. Your donations and your prayers are a great affirmation of our retired priests. Please pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood. You and those you love are in my prayers; please keep me in yours. Sincerely yours in Christ, Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I.
I think its time to retire...


Speaking of the retired priests, we have to announce with Fr. Mariusz that we will be retiring from St. Albert the Great Parish in two weeks. We are not really looking forward to it because we love you and we will miss you very much. We will do everything to make this transition as smooth as possible for the new priests and for the parish. The new pastor, Fr. Mike Zoufal is coming to St. Albert the Great Parish with his Associate from St. Blas Parish, Fr. Richard Czerniak, who is Polish and who is a member of the Society of Christ Congregation. I met with Fr. Mike again last week and we covered the most important matters regarding the transition. I promised Fr. Mike to fix as much I can during these last two weeks at the Pastors residence, where he would like to move when he comes in. The building abandoned for more than four years needs new windows, new doors and stairs, very serious repair of the airconditioning system, new carpets or tiles on the floor, painting and furniture because there is nothing left. We will be leaving St. Albert with Fr. Mariusz after the last weekend of June 25-26 and you will have chance to say good bye after all Masses in the Rogers Hall. At this moment, I do not know where I am going but I will let you know as soon as I find out.

God Bless, Fr. Rich
