Dear St. Paul Parishioners,
During our weekend Masses this month we are reminded that October is “Respect Life
Month.” I presume that as Church-going Catholics we align ourselves fully with the Magisterium of the Church with regard to all life issues. God is the Giver of all life and as such, He
alone is the ultimate arbiter of life and death decisions. We affirm with the universal Church
that we respect life from natural conception to natural death.
During my doctoral studies, I surveyed Church-going Catholic students with regard to
their attitude to abortion. As part of my course on public opinion I administered a questionnaire
to 1,000 students at the University of Illinois at all Sunday Masses. To my total shock, I discovered that almost onethird of those students did not embrace totally the Church’s position. They subscribed to the opinion of mainstream
American culture that maintains abortion to be a matter of choice rather than a matter of life. I guess that many young
Catholics today align themselves more with popular opinion than with Church teaching.
Even though I am preaching to the choir, I would like to offer my thoughts on a couple of these issues. First of
all, I am intrigued by the deep divisions that exist in our society with regard to these topics. Sometimes I am frustrated
that the real substance is often confounded by rhetoric and semantics. Second, I believe that even well-meaning
individuals sometimes fritter away their limited resources on futile enterprises instead of fighting battles that they can
win. So much time and money are invested in trying to overturn Roe v Wade while the real battle should be conducted
in the hearts of people.
First of all, all of us need to work towards a consistent moral perspective on life issues. There are people in this
country who hug trees and protest product testing on animals but have no qualms of conscience over getting rid of a
helpless human being. They refuse to wear fur and yet in their eyes the egg of a bald eagle is far more precious than a
human fetus. These individuals will not allow their daughters to get a tattoo without their permission, but they object to
laws that require parental notification in case of abortion. On the other side, there are certain individuals who fight
abortion with all their might – and rightly so – and yet, they have no problem with the use of violence or war. They are
also in favor of the death penalty.
In order to have a consistent moral perspective we must renounce the temptation to play God and decide who
deserves to live and who deserves to die. God alone should make that decision. We must protect unborn babies and
at the same time find ways to take care of babies after birth. We should care for the elderly, the disabled and the
physically and mentally challenged. We must work to establish what Pope John Paul II called “the culture of life.”
Second, in recent years many sincere Christians have spent huge amounts of money, time and energy to overturn Roe v Wade and they have not succeeded. I do believe that we must make every effort to change the law. However, I am also sadly aware that outlawing abortion is not going to stop it. I am convinced that the battle over abortion
will not be won in the halls of Congress or in the chambers of justice. It will be won in the hearts of people.
We need to educate our young people that sexuality is a fragile gift that should be used within the context of
married love. The gift comes with great responsibility. We need to tell our young people that adoption is a worthy
choice. We need to convince parents and families that they should accept their children when “mistakes” happen and
support them in difficult times. We need a comprehensive Christian education in chastity. I am of the opinion that
many of our problems in marriage and relationships are closely tied to the carefree use of sexuality prior to marriage.
In addition, we need also to help Catholics develop a personal spirituality. For without a strong spirituality and prayer
life it is not possible for someone to accept and live the Christian ideals of chaste love proposed by the Church.
Let us pray for an end to abortion. Let us pray that the culture of life will flourish in our nation and in our
world. Let us pray that every human being will be treated with dignity and respect, no matter who they are. Let us pray
that every human person will be protected and cherished from natural conception to natural death. Let us do all in our
power to promote the culture of life.
Yours warmly,
Fr. Britto
Pastor

The next meeting of the Senior Singles will be
Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 3:00 PM.
There will be a meeting followed by a planning session regarding holiday philanthropic ideas for the group.
There will also be discussion regarding the group’s Christmas Mass, followed by brunch. Immediately following
the meeting, the group will enjoy an Oktoberfest dinner at the Edelweiss Restaurant, 7650 W. Irving Park Rd,
Norridge, IL. Make your reservations for dinner by October 23rd, with Loretta Fleischmann 847-696-3061,
[email protected] or Helen Roppel, 847-823-2998, [email protected]
Meetings are held on the fourth Sunday of every month, from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM, in the Kinane Center.
For additional information contact Loretta Fleischmann or Helen Roppel at the contact information above.
The Grief Share program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated
with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of
people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Past participants have related how helpful the
information and follow-up discussions were to them.
Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned
to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do
the God-given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could
help you. Confidentiality is very much a part of this program.
Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and
help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. No matter what the
cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You
will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to
certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope
for the future.

and the elderly.
In October, we will
be participating in
Today, we read a Gospel that has connections with the Gospel from
last Sunday. In today’s Gospel, Jesus gives a parable of a King who
gave a wedding feast for his son. After several unsuccessful attempts
to get invited people to come to the Feast, the King says to the servants go out and invite “whomever you find.” He said, “Many are
invited but few are chosen.”
In last Sunday’s Gospel, we read the parable about a vineyard owner who
leases out his vineyard to tenants. At vintage time he sent his servants and
even his son to collect the produce from the tenants. They kill the son and
refuse to give the owner the produce. It is suggested that the owner kills the
tenants and other more responsible tenants are leased the vineyard. Jesus said
“The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people
that will produce the fruit.”
Both Gospels emphasize that in our freedom, we
can refuse God’s invitation to us. But we are the
losers, because God can take the invitation away
from us. Jesus has invited us all to visit Him in
the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel at St. Paul.
Despite the many graces and benefits one can
receive by accepting His invitation, many refuse
it.
This refusal when grace is plain to see, can affect our willingness to
produce the spiritual “Fruit” necessary for our salvation, that Matthew
mentions in his Gospel.

NURSE’S NOTES……….
Hi everyone!
“Got milk?” is a popular advertisement that we have probably seen in
newspapers, magazines, on billboards, etc., but the next question might be: what
kind of milk? If we are lactose intolerant or just wishing to avoid regular milk,
we can choose from a dazzling array of milk substitutes . In many countries,
folks drink raw milk: non-pasteurized-non-homogenized-straight-from-the-cow-milk. As a child
spending summers on a working farm in the Catskills, N.Y., that’s how I drank milk but now doing
so has become somewhat more complicated. Serious illness can occur if unpasteurized milk is not
handled properly or if the farm source is not up to snuff as far as cleanliness and proper procedures
are concerned. Our urban and busy lifestyle can make it difficult to obtain raw milk from a reliable
source so it’s prudent to consume a safer choice. When we purchase cows’ milk, we can choose
between skim, 1%, 2% milk fat or whole milk. When very young children begin drinking cows’
milk, some health professionals recommend using whole milk until the toddler stage ends. It’s best to discuss this with
the physician (or pediatrician). Another cows’ milk choice is organic. This milk should be free of antibiotics,
hormones, the pesticides present in some cow feed, the GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in some cow feed and
also free of feed that was grown in synthetic fertilizer. Organic milk is easy to find these days. Hard to find is “grass
fed cows’ milk.” This type may be organic or not, but comes from cows fed only grass--no grains or other foods given
to them to encourage faster growth. Grass fed milk may contain hormones, antibiotics and pesticides if it’s not organic.
Cows’ milk is nutritious containing calcium, protein, vitamins A,D,B6, B12, CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) and micronutrients. Pasteurized milk, due to the high heat processing, may have a lower micronutrient content. Ultra pasteurization can potentially damage the protein structure contained, but it can extend the shelf life in the frig. Keeping milk in
opaque containers assures that more nutrients are present (especially vitamin A). Milk in a clear container, exposed to
light may have fewer nutrients due to the exposure to light, which can break down contained nutrients. Homogenized
milk is milk that’s been forced, under pressure, through tiny holes in order to break down the large particles of fat.
Some of the smaller fat particles can be absorbed “across the gut walls” more quickly which can increase the chance of
an allergic reaction in some folks according to some health professionals. If we need or want alternatives to cows’
milk, there are quite a few available. Creamy, sweet and containing micronutrients (thereby perhaps boosting the
immune system) is coconut milk. It contains medium chain fats reputed to be anti-viral and anti-bacterial. But, as in
many milk alternatives, sugar, thickeners, and preservatives may be added. Creamy, cholesterol and saturated fat free,
almond milk is available. It’s high in micronutrients like potassium, iron, zinc, vitamin E, calcium, selenium, etc.
Consuming a large amount, however, may give us larger amounts of inflammation prompting omega-6 fatty acids,
common in many foods we consume like vegetable oil. Rice milk is popular, has a mild taste but can be high in starch
and sugar. It’s usually fortified as it’s lower in micronutrients. Soy milk is quite popular but contains a carbohydrate
that folks with gastrointestinal problems may not be able to break down. It can be heavily processed and sweetened to
aid the somewhat bitter taste of soybeans. Soy is a controversial food--some think it’s great, others less so. Hemp milk
is another alternative, rich in magnesium with a good ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Sweeteners and
thickeners may be added but this is also generally, a good alternative. Hemp milk may be a good choice for those with
nut or soy allergies as well as lactose intolerance.
Until next week, let’s remember this quote in the vernacular seen on a milk bottle; “best when chilled (as indeed we all are)”.
