Dear Parishioners,
Ash Wednesday and Lent begins this week!
I invite you to journey with the Lord for the next 40 days. Try to keep your time with God
down-to-earth and don't try too hard to be absolutely perfect! Very often, you and I are
very hard on ourselves, almost harsher on ourselves than we would be on another. During
these days of prayer, fasting and alms giving try to be understanding, forgiving and
encouraging to yourself! Take it easy! Please let me be clear. I'm not discounting the
tensions that arise within or the seriousness of the season but we need not fear, after all it is
God who inspires and directs us.
In all of this I use the paschal image of our life as a journey. St. John of the Cross also uses
this image of journey for the spiritual life, and he has this advice: we will not make it far,
he says, unless we can distinguish the absence of God from our feelings of God's absence.
We must be able to move ahead, despite the feeling of absence, confident of God's
You are in my prayers!
Fr. Mike Meany

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.

Drodzy Parafianie,
Wielki Post i Środa Popielcowa zaczynają się w tym tygodniu!
Zachęcam Was do podróży z Panem przez następne 40 dni. Postarajcie się, aby czas z
Bogiem był normalny i nie starajcie się być perfekcyjni! Bardzo często, Ty i ja, ludzie
chodzący do kościoła, są dla siebie ostrzy, bardzo często bardziej ostrzy dla siebie samych
niż bylibyśmy dla innych. Podczas tych dni modlitwy, postu i jałmużny, postarajcie się
być wyrozumiali, przebaczający i zachęcających siebie samych! Wyluzujcie się! Proszę
mnie dobrze zrozumieć, nie bagatelizuję napięć, które narastają wewnętrznie i powagi
okresu Wielkiego Postu, ale nie możemy się lękać, bo przede wszystkim to Bóg inspiruje
nas i nas prowadzi.
W tym wszystkim używam paschalnego obrazu naszego życia jako drogi. Św. Jan od
Krzyża, również używa obrazu drogi dla duchowego życia i radzi on: nie zajdziemy
daleko, mówi on, chyba że odróżnimy nieobecność Boga od naszego uczucia
nieobecności Boga. Musimy iść naprzód, pomimo uczucia nieobecności, pewni Bożej
Zapewniam o modlitwie!
Ks. Mike Meany
Pavel Jurkulak, nasz parafianin Św. Jana Brebeuf, otrzyma
święcenia diakonatu 17-go maja, 2015 w katedrze Św. Imienia
przez Arcybiskupa Błażeja Cupich, Arcybiskupa Chicago. To jest
publiczne ogłoszenie nadchodzących święceń i spełnia kanoniczne
wymogi. Katolicy są zobowiązani, aby wyjawić jakiekolwiek
przeszkody lub okoliczności, które uniemożliwiałyby Pavlowi
Jurkulakowi przyjęcie Święceń i powinni skontaktować się z
proboszczem lub arcybiskupem z takimi informacjami jak
najszybciej, jeżeli są poważne wątpliwości co do osoby kandydata
i jego święceń.
Wielki Post 2015 Festiwal Przebaczenia
Dla katolików z całego świata, Środa Popielcowa rozpoczyna okres Wielkiego Postu. Jest to czas
nowego startu. W tym roku, Wielki Post dostarcza nam specjalnej szansy, aby zaprosić ludzi do szukania
uzdrowienia i uczestnictwa w Festiwalu Przebaczenia. Wierni katolicy, a szczególnie ci, którzy są daleko
od sakramentów, są zaproszeni, aby przyjść i dzielić się Bożym miłosierdziem. Od południa w piątek, 27
-go lutego do południa w sobotę, 28-go lutego, skarament pojedniania będzie celebrowany w 24
miejscach przez 24 godziny. Św. Jan Brebuf został wybrany jako jedna z parafii. Będziemy otwarci do
udzielania sakramentu, modlitwy i Adoracji przez 24 godziny podczas Festiwalu Przebaczenia.
