A Message from Bishop Malloy:
Mensaje del Obispo Malloy:
October, 2014
Octubre, 2014
Dear Friends in Christ,
We are all aware of how much Pope Francis loves the
poor, the sick, the outcast and the lost. In fact, he says
that our experience of God’s love gives us even more joy
when we share it with others. That is his message for
World Mission Sunday, which we celebrate on October
18th – 19th.
Queridos hermanos en Cristo:
Supporting the Church’s missionary activity with one’s
prayers and financial offerings, the Pope said, are a
“sign of a self-offering, first to the Lord and then to others; in this way a material offering can become a means
for the evangelization of humanity built on love.”
As disciples of Christ, we are to follow His example. Jesus chose to be in solidarity with those that are poor and
hungry to demonstrate God’s mercy and love. Our missionaries follow in Jesus’ footsteps in proclaiming to the
ends of the earth the salvation Christ offers those who
believe in Him.
Our diocesan parishes will hold the annual collection for
the Mission Appeal which supports the Church’s outreach, spreading the Word of God not only in the United
States of America, but also in mission countries and situations abroad. This Mission Appeal includes: World
Mission Sunday; Missions in the United States; the
Church in Latin America; Membership in the Propagation of the Faith; and Rockford Diocesan Priests’ Pension. For the Catholic elementary schools in our Diocese, we have created a special opportunity for you
to assist grade schools that have operating deficits and
need your help to become financially viable.
Each one of us is called to proclaim our faith and encourage others, both near and far, to grow closer to our
Lord. Our diocesan priests, religious priests and sisters
continually say yes to God’s call to teach His message.
Please join with them in their mission to proclaim our
faith by supporting the Mission Appeal.
Thank you in advance for your generosity for this worthy cause!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
The Most Reverend David J. Malloy
Bishop of Rockford
Todos somos conscientes de lo mucho que el Papa
Francisco ama a los pobres, a los enfermos, a los marginados y a los perdidos. De hecho, él dice que nuestra
experiencia del amor de Dios nos da aún más alegría
cuando la compartimos con otros. Ese es su mensaje
para el Domingo Mundial de las Misiones, que celebramos el 18 y 19 de octubre.
Apoyar a la Iglesia es su actividad misionera con oraciones y ofrendas financieras, dice el Papa son “una señal
de que uno entrega, en primer lugar al Señor y luego a
los hermanos, porque la propia ofrenda material se convierte en un instrumento de evangelización de la humanidad que se construye sobre el amor”.
Como discípulos de Cristo, estamos siguiendo Su ejemplo. Jesús escogió estar en solidaridad con aquellos que
están pobres y sufren de hambre para demostrar la misericordia y el amor de Dios. Nuestros misioneros siguen los pasos de Jesús hasta los confines de la tierra
en proclamación de la salvación que Cristo ofrece a
quienes creen en Él.
Las parroquias de nuestra diócesis tendrán la colecta
anual de las misiones que apoyan la extensión de la
Iglesia, esparciendo la palabra de Dios no solo en los
Estados Unidos de América sino también en la misión
en países y situaciones en el extranjero. Esta Colecta de
las Misiones incluye: el Domingo Mundial de las Misiones, Misiones en los Estados Unidos de América, la
Iglesia en América Latina; Membrecía en la Propagación de la Fe y la Pensión de los Sacerdotes de la Diócesis de Rockford. Para las escuelas católicas elementales
de nuestra diócesis, hemos creado una oportunidad especial para ayudar a las escuelas primaria que tienen
déficits de funcionamiento y necesitan tu ayuda para
ser financieramente viables.
Cada uno de nosotros está llamado a proclamar nuestra
fe y estimular a otros, tanto a quienes están cerca como
a quienes están lejos, a crecer más cerca de nuestro Señor. Nuestro sacerdotes diocesanos, sacerdotes religiosos y las hermanas, continuamente dicen sí al llamado
de Dios para enseñar su mensaje. Por favor únase a
ellos en su misión para proclamar nuestra fe, apoyando
la Colecta de las Misiones.
Gracias de antemano por su generosidad para esta valiosa causa.
Sinceramente suyo en Cristo,
Reverendísimo David J. Malloy
Obispo de Rockford

Stewardship Reflection
And my God will supply every need of yours…”
~ Philippians 4:19~
God really does provide for those that are grateful and generous.
This is very difficult for people that don’t live a stewardship lifestyle to believe. People are skeptical and say it’s just coincidence.
If you are skeptical, try living a stewardship lifestyle for just one
month – be generous with your gifts of time, talent and treasure
and see how God provides for your needs.

Vocations Corner by Rev. Keith Romke
Relationship – Identity - Mission
I’d like to propose that in order to know where we are called,
that we must first understand who we are, and that in order to
understand who we are, we have to know where we come from.
So often in life, we assess ourselves based on what we do, we
look at people who have done great things as “somebodies” and
those who haven’t shown much, to be “nobodies.” We ourselves
may feel like we are of little worth if we struggle in life and don’t
seem to see great results from our efforts in life. This assessment of what we do thus affects how we view ourselves, which
can in turn affect our relationships. God, however, wants for us
to see things in the exact opposite way!
We begin by looking at our relationships. From the moment of
our baptism, we are brought into the relationship of being sons
and daughters of God! We must NEVER lose sight of this fact,
because it gives us a profound and extraordinary dignity. This
relationship defines who we are and gives us our Identity! And
only when we accept and acknowledge this identity, are we able
to receive our mission. Look at Mother Theresa, the things that
she did were seemingly small in the eye of the world, but she did
what she did with love as a response to her identity that
stemmed from her relationship with God. Now, I’d say that she
had pretty good results! So today, accept your identity from
God, and let that identity reveal your mission.
