Dear Parishioners,
Ten or 15 years ago, psychologists thought that a person's disposition was determined early in life. If
someone was always cheerful, their happy mood was probably set in the early years of life and if someone
was always grumpy, that too went back to those formational moments. But more recently one of the
world's leading psychologist, Robert Emmons, did a pioneering study on whether or not one can change
their personality disposition – the set point? He found after extensive study that if people take the time to
note all the things they are grateful for, they will feel 25% better and be much happier in their day to day
outlook on life.
The study is summarized in a short book, “Thanks! How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier” by
Robert Emmons --($13.95 – Amazon.com).
As we move into the winter doldrums, perhaps we can all use a little cheering up! Well, write down what
you're thankful for! While you may not feel any warmer, you'll feel 25% happier looking out the window!
Once again, we hope to have our Ice Skating Rink out by the gym during Catholic Schools Week – beginning January 25th. Anyone interested in organizing it? Another lesson, “Don't fight it, go with the flow!”
Go Blackhawks!
Happy Winter!
Father Mike Meany

The Marvelous Rosary
Join in Rosary Prayers daily,
Monday through Friday,
immediately following the 8:45
AM Mass; Saturday following
the 7:30 AM Mass; Sunday
before the 7:30 AM Mass.
Praying the rosary
together in front of the Blessed Sacrament
gives many graces and is so peaceful.
Christ's followers were
skeptical when He preached
the reality of His Body and
Blood as food and drink. St.
John said, "many of His disciples withdrew and no longer
went about with Him."
Seeing this, Jesus asked the Twelve, "Do
you also want to leave me?" Simon Peter did
not understand any more than those who left
Christ, but his loyalty was more firm. "Lord,"
he said, "to whom shall we go? You have
the words of eternal life."
We have the "Word of Eternal Life"
right here with us day and night in our
Adoration Chapel. Do you have something
you want to ask Him? There are several
hours needing adorers. Please pick one for
your personal hour with Him.

The Baptism of the Lord:
After Jesus was baptized,
he saw the Spirit of God
descending like a dove, and a
voice was heard “This is my
beloved Son, with whom I am
well pleased.” As we give to
the poor, we also can hear
these same words.
As you place your gift in the
Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Poor Box, know that you are
a sign of God’s love to those
who are suffering and you
give them reason to believe
and to trust.

We are again asking our parishioners to participate in this special fund-raiser to help women in crisis pregnancy situations by supporting the pro-life work of The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland starting
on January 10 and 11, weekend. They provide kind and compassionate counseling to women in crisis pregnancies, along with ongoing material and financial assistance. They are Catholic-run, so the Mass and other
prayers are said for women and babies every day in their chapel. This is a wonderful opportunity for parishioners of all ages, including children, to be able to work together to support "life".
Baby bottles will be found in main entrances of church for you to take home and fill with spare change.
Please return the bottles before any of the masses on the weekend of February 14-15. Please take one bottle per family. Extras will be available in the back of the church the next couple of weekends if you fill up
your first one. Thank you for participating in this worthy cause.

Drodzy Parafianie,
Jeszcze 10, 15 lat temu, psychologowie myśleli, że usposobienie człowieka jest określone we wczesnej fazie życia.
Jeśli ktoś był zawsze wesoły, to nastrój ten był już ustawiony we wczesnej fazie rozwoju, a jeśli ktoś był zawsze w
złym humorze to również nastrój ten pochodził z wczesnych lat. Jednak obecnie, jeden z czołowych psychologów,
Robert Emmons, przeanalizował problem na temat tego, czy człowiek może zmienić swój charakter – moment, w
którym charakter został określony? Odkrył on, po obszernych badaniach, że jeśli osoba spędzi czas, aby zauważyć
rzeczy, za które jest wdzięczna, poczuje się 25% lepiej, będzie bardziej szczęśliwsza w życiu codziennym.
Badania te są opisane w krótkiej książce “Thanks! How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier” napisanej
przez Roberta Emmons – ($13.95 – Amazon.com)
Podczas zbliżania się do mrozów, każdy z nas może skorzystać z pocieszenia! Napisz na kartce za co jesteś
wdzięczny! Może nie poczujesz się cieplej, ale poczujesz się o 25% bardziej szczęśliwym patrząc przez okno!
Jeszcze raz przypominam, że planujemy mieć lodowisko przy Sali gimnastycznej, podczas tygodnia szkół
katolickich – rozpoczynającego się 25-go stycznia. Następna lekcja, „Nie opieraj się, tylko płyń z prądem” Do boju
Miłej Zimy!

Projekt Dziecięcej Butelki
10 lat w Parafii Św. Jana Brebeuf
Po raz kolejny, zachęcamy naszych parafian do uczestnictwa w tej specjalnej
kweście, aby pomóc kobietom w kryzysowych sytuacjach związanych z ciążą,
poprzez wsparcie pracy Centrum w Obronie Życia w całym Chicago, rozpoczynającym się w weekend
10 – 11 stycznia. Centrum dostarcza dobrej i miłosiernej porady dla kobiet w kryzysie związanym z
ciążą, wraz z materiałami i pomocą finansową. Jest to centrum katolickie, więc Msza Św. i inne
modlitwy są odmawiane za kobiety i dzieci każdego dnia w kaplicy. Jest to wspaniała okazja dla
parafian różnych grup wiekowych, wliczając dzieci, aby pracować wspólnie w obronie ”życia”.
Dziecięce butelki będą dostępne w nawie głównej kościoła, aby zabrać je do domu i wypełnić
drobnymi pieniędzmi. Proszę przynieść butelki przed jakąkolwiek Mszą Św. Podczas weekendu, 1415 lutego. Proszę wziąć jedną butelkę na rodzinę. Dodatkowe butelki będą dostępne przez następne
weekendy z tyłu kościoła, jeśli zostaną zużyte te pierwsze. Dziękujemy za uczestnictwo w tym
dobroczynnym dziele.

Co roku mamy pomiędzy 150 a 200 pogrzebów celebrowanych w parafii Św. Jana Brebeuf. Dzisiaj,
chcielibyśmy rozpocząć Duszpasterstwo Osób w Żałobie, które będzie służyło naszej parafii. Prosimy, abyście
rozważyli w jaki sposób możecie służyć w tym duszpasterstwie dla siebie nawzajem i dla rodzin, które są w żałobie.
Wyobraź sobie, że asystujesz rodzinie, prowadząc modlitwy, pomagając im podjąć decyzje związane z Mszą Św.
pogrzebową, ofiarując pomoc rodzinie po pogrzebie. Otrzymacie szkolenie i pomoc związaną z żałobą. Naszym
celem jest, aby stworzyć zespół ludzi, którzy będą się wspierać i wymiennie służyć, podczas pogrzebów w parafii.
To duszpasterstwo pozwoli Wam być wrażliwymi dla rodzin, służyć im w potrzebie i umocnić ich nadzieję.
Zadzwońcie do biura parafialnego, aby zostawić swoje imię i numer telefonu. Modlimy się, aby wolontariusze
podjęli nowe wyzwanie w tym nowym duszpasterstwie w parafii Św. Jana Brebeuf.
