LABORERS FOR THE HARVEST

Today’s Gospel tells the story of the sending out


of the seventy-two, some of the first disciples in
the burgeoning church. They must have been full
of idealism and excitement as they went from
town to town healing the sick and expelling de-
mons. Today, the Fourth of July, we remember
those who founded our country and can also
imagine their excitement and idealism as they
worked in this newly established country. Our
Church, now over two thousand years old, is still
in need of men filled with idealism and excite-
ment who are willing to answer the call to the or-
dained priesthood. Today is a day to pray for vo-
cations to the priesthood; as the Lord tells his
disciples, “[A]sk the master of the harvest to send
out laborers for his harvest” (Luke 10:2).

Those who have loved ones – spouse, child, parent – especially recently, are invited to gather with Father Peter and
staff members Wednesday, July 7. Coffee, etc. will be available starting at 9AM in the Parish Life Center. Prayer and
remembrance will begin at 10AM. We will conclude by 11:30. Please come and share where you are at in your grieving
process, what you find helpful, what might be helpful to yourself and others.

Year of the Eucharist + Diocese of Joliet

Diocese of Joliet Official Biography for Patron Saint of the Year of the Eucharist
July: Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-1680)
Blessed Kateri was born in 1656 to a Mohawk warrior and a Catholic Algonquin woman in the Mohawk fortress of
Ossernenon near present-day Auriesville, New York. She was only four when her brother and her parents died of small
pox, and Kateri was also severely affected and badly scarred by the virus. She was taken in by relatives and, despite
strong criticism, took a serious interest in Christianity when she was teenager.

Kateri was baptized a Catholic at twenty. After converting, she endured the hostility and rejection of her tribe and left for
Quebec, Canada to join other Native Americans who had become Christians. There she lived as a consecrated virgin,
totally committed to living a life of prayer, penance, and service.

Blessed Kateri would arise early before the sun and wait for the church doors to open. Her day began with Eucharist and
prayer. She would spend long hours on her knees in the cold chapel adoring Jesus hidden in the Sacrament of Love.
She was known for her great devotion to both the Blessed Sacrament and the Cross of Christ.

Kateri died on April 17, 1680 at the age of twenty-four and is known as the "Lily of the Mohawks". At her death all the
scars on her face disappeared, which was witnessed by two Jesuit priests and all who were gathered by her side. She
was beatified by Pope John Paul in 1980, and her feast day is July 14. She is the first Native American to be beatified.

Corporal Work of Mercy: to shelter the homeless. Spiritual Work of Mercy: to forgive offenses willingly.

Eucharist Is Not Understood, Laments Pope


Says Well-Celebrated Mass Is Best Catechesis
ROME, JUNE 17, 2010 (Zenit.org).- The doctrine of the Eucharist -- and its relevance for believers -- is not sufficiently under-
stood and must be a catechetical priority, says Benedict XVI. The Pope affirmed this Wednesday when he went to the Basilica
of St. John Lateran to address participants at the convention for the Diocese of Rome. The Holy Father told his diocese that a
"more profound knowledge of the mystery of the Body and Blood of the Lord" is a necessity for the communities of Rome.
"At the same time," he added, "in the missionary spirit that we wish to nourish, it is necessary to spread the commitment to pro-
claim such Eucharistic faith, so that every man will encounter Jesus Christ who has revealed the 'close' God, friend of human-
ity, and to witness it with an eloquent life of charity." The Pontiff went on to give a reflection on the Eucharistic mystery, consid-
ering Christ's sacrifice on Calvary and how it is memorialized. He acknowledged that "sacrifice" is no longer a popular word.
"However, properly understood," he said, "[sacrifice] is and remains fundamental, because it reveals to us with what love God
loves us in Christ."

Entering a reality: Benedict XVI affirmed that Mass itself, "celebrated in the respect of the liturgical norms and with a fitting
appreciation of the richness of the signs and gestures," fosters and promotes Eucharistic faith.
"In the Eucharistic celebration," he said, "we do not invent something, but we enter into a reality that precedes us, more than
that, which embraces heaven and earth and, hence, also the past, the future and the present. This universal openness, this
encounter with all the sons and daughters of God is the grandeur of the Eucharist: We go to meet the reality of God present in
the body and blood of the Risen One among us." It is because of this, the Holy Father affirmed, that liturgical prescriptions are
not mere "external things" but "express concretely this reality of the revelation of the body and blood of Christ." Hence, he con-
tended, the best catechesis on the Eucharist is the Eucharist itself, well celebrated.

Individual altars: Later in his address, the Bishop of Rome noted how the Eucharistic celebration must lead to charity.
"Feeding on him we are freed from the bonds of individualism and, through communion with him, we ourselves become, to-
gether, one thing, his Mystical Body," he said. This surmounts the differences of profession, class and nationality to form "one
great family, that of the children of God."

"When we receive Christ," the Pope added, "the love of God expands in our innermost self, modifies our heart radically and
makes us capable of gestures that, by the expansive force of good, can transform the life of those that are next to us. [...] A
celebrated Eucharist imposes on us and at the same time renders us capable of becoming, in our turn, bread broken for broth-
ers, coming to meet their needs and giving ourselves. "Because of this, a Eucharistic celebration that does not lead to meet
men where they live, work and suffer, to take to them the love of God, does not manifest the love it encloses. To be faithful to
the mystery that is celebrated on the altars we must, as the Apostle Paul exhorts us, offer our bodies, ourselves, in spiritual
sacrifice pleasing to God in those circumstances that require dying to our 'I' and constitute our daily 'altar.'"

Respect Life Mission Statement


We will work to build a culture of life in our parish by our Christian example and advocacy for life. We will stand up for
the unborn, the elderly, dying and disabled. No human life is beyond our support, because none is beyond the reach of
God's love. "Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first mo-
ment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person, among which is the inviolable
right of every innocent being of life." Catechism 2270 Call Fr Peter if you want to be part of our Life Team.

Thank you Father's Day Angels


Many thanks to our Father's Day angels for their help with in honoring our fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, uncles and
the other men in our lives that mean so much to us. First of all thanks to the parish staff including Father Peter and Bill
Runge for their help with parish announcements, and to Sherry Rochford for copying the list of names. Thanks to Barb
Collins for her help with the bulletin flyers. Judy Knox and Pat LeBeau submitted the publicity, Diane Buyer collected the

A special thank you to Janet Sipolt who donated 12 vases to CCW to use for Father's Day and future flower displays.
The vases were donated in memory of her parents Marie and Frank Horn and late husband Nick Sipolt.

Final thanks goes to Janet for volunteering to head up the Mother's Day and Father's Day flower sales this year. She did
a fantastic job and the results were 2 spectacular displays of flowers that adorned the altar on 2 very special days.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

In 2009, U.S. families experienced an economic downturn that


devastated many. Despite these struggles, the faithful have shown
that they consider it a priority to help those less fortunate than
themselves through their support of the Peter’s Pence Collection.

“God’s love . . . gives us the courage to continue seeking and working for the benefit of all” (Caritas in Veritate, no. 78).

The Peter’s Pence Collection allows the Holy Father to support victims of disaster, war, and oppression and others most
in need of emergency assistance. The pope, being pastor of the whole Church, is attentive to the material needs of poor
dioceses, religious institutes, and the faithful in grave difficulties. Through loving charity, the Holy Father casts Christ’s
love upon the world.

Nazareth Boys Town in Mbare, Rwanda, received assistance from Pope Benedict XVI for abandoned orphans who are
victims of genocide and civil war. Casa di accoglienza Giovanni Paolo II Opera Don Orione, a residence that gives free
shelter and specializes in assisting special-needs pilgrims traveling to Rome, was recently refurbished through the Pe-
ter’s Pence Collection. And in Bosnia, the Hospital of St. Vincent de Paul, a health institution in Sarajevo staffed by reli-
gious, was established with support from the Collection.

Please be generous in the Collection and, in doing so, cast the love of Christ upon the world.

Thank you and God bless you!

Sincerely in Christ,

Most Rev. J. Peter Sartain Most Rev. Joseph M. Siegel

Good News Reflection

In this Sunday's Gospel reading, Jesus tells his disciples to ask the “Master” (God the Father) of the
“harvest” (conversion to Christ) to send out more “laborers” (evangelizers). And in the next breath, he tells them that
THEY are the laborers and that they must get busy: "Go on your way," he says. When you think of evangelizers in the
Catholic Church, who comes to mind first? Most people think of priests, and we all know that we need more priests. New
vocations in Western societies are still way too few to compensate for the elderly ones who are retiring and dying.
Do you pray for an increase of vocations? Good, but that's only part of what Jesus is asking for. "Go on your way," he
says to ALL of us, "and use YOUR gifts, YOUR talents, and YOUR skills to assist in the harvest.

Jesus has always been collaborative. The number of laborers for the mission of the Church will only be sufficient when
we all join the effort – clergy, religious, AND laity – working together with our separate and unique talents and skills,
humbly assisting each other as members of the same team.
To reach this sufficiency, many of us have to overcome the "someone else will take care of it" attitude. Others have to
overcome the desire for perfection, the "I can take care of it better myself" attitude, which robs others of the opportunity
to serve.

Many who are in leadership have to overcome the fear of losing control, the "I must tell others how to do their job" atti-
tude, which chases away some very talented laborers. Jesus said we should carry no supplies into ministry; we should
accept whatever is offered to us.
Our prayers for an increase of consecrated vocations are answered from within collaborative ministry. Clergy and reli-
gious have to be good role models to attract new vocations, but the laity have to serve God with the same zeal and holi-
ness that we expect from them, because out of families who serve come the holy priests and religious who serve.

Questions for Personal Reflection: Which ministries in your parish and diocese are lacking sufficient laborers? If you're
not already busy in the work of God's kingdom, how can use your talents to help there? If you're already serving enthusi-
astically, how can you encourage others to get involved?

Questions for Family & Community Faith Sharing: Name some of the attitudes and obstacles that block the spirit of col-
laboration. How can these be overcome? What will you do to improve the conditions of the mission field so that more
people will get involved?
