Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is encouraged by spotlighting the Tabernacle outside the times of the Holy Sacrifice. HOLY COMMUNION: We welcome to the Holy Mass all who share our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. While all are welcome here, we cannot extend to all an invitation to receive Holy Communion. This is not for lack of Christian hospitality. Rather, it is the recognition by the Catholic Church that real divisions of faith and practice do sadly exist among Christians. Practicing Catholics who go to Confession whenever needed are invited to receive Holy Communion. Non-Catholic Christians and those Catholics in need of the Sacrament of Penance are asked to pray for a spiritual communion with the Lord Jesus and for the unity of His Church. 7:30 am 9:00 am 10:30 am 12:00 pm 5:00 pm Special Intention (G.

It is a Holy and Wholesome Thought To Pray for the Dead. More effective than flowers or memorial gifts, is to have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered for your deceased loved ones or a Mass celebrated as a “special intention” For a living person. Call or visit the parish office to request a Mass 304-342-8175. Use of Contribution Envelopes Those who insist on anonymity in contributing to the parish are asked to use the parish contribution envelopes and mark the contribution space -0- or -?-. This will enable pastor to know you are a practicing Catholic and regularly attend Mass for reasons noted under Sponsor Certificates. Sponsor Certificates To act as Sponsors of Baptism/Confirmation, certificates are gladly issued to registered members of the Basilica of the CoCathedral of the Sacred Heart who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation, are known to attend Mass regularly by use of envelopes, receive Holy Communion regularly, have children receiving Catholic Religious Education and, if married, have done so in conformity with the regulations of the Catholic Church. Same criteria required for families to receive special parish rates for SHGS tuition. “SMILE” November, 2014 “Partners-In-Hope” November, 2014 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39.

THE NATIONAL CATHOLIC REVIEW Encountering Islam How can Catholics elevate interfaith dialogue? November 17, 2014 | The Editors Pope Francis’ trip to Turkey at the end of November comes at a critical time and place in the history of Christian-Muslim relations. Bordering Iraq and Syria, Turkey has in recent months been inundated with refugees fleeing the advance of Islamic State militants. The Christian presence in the Middle East has been on the decline for decades, but today civil war and the rise of extremist groups threaten to expel the tiny minority that remains. The plight of persecuted Christians is an issue close to Pope Francis’ heart, and at a gathering of cardinals on Oct. 20 denounced “terrorism of previously unimaginable proportions” and the perpetrators on whom “the value of human life has been lost.” Nowhere in his remarks, however, does he draw a connection between this violence and the religion of Islam. His careful use of language reflects his belief, expressed a year ago in his apostolic exhortation “The Joy of the Gospel,” that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Quran are opposed to every form of violence.” For that reason, he writes, Catholics must avoid “hateful generalizations” in the face of violent fundamentalism. Such nuance often is lost on American commentators. In September the talk show host Bill Maher said the “Muslim world…has too much in common with ISIS”; his guest, the author Sam Harris, conceded that there are certainly “nominal Muslims who don’t take the faith seriously, who don’t want to kill apostates, who are horrified by ISIS.” As there were no Muslims present in this exchange, the source of religious authority cited was the Pew Research Center, which found that 86 percent of Egyptians support the death penalty for apostates. That is a troubling statistic, but religions are not defined by opinion polls. Those who wish to make sweeping generalizations about Muslims have their work cut out for them. There is no equivalent to the pope in Islam, no single catechism or hierarchy to consult for definitive interpretations of religious texts. Any sentence that begins “All Muslims” and does not end with “believe there is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah” probably paints an incomplete or inaccurate picture of a faith held by over 1.5 billion people from every region of the world. In Afghanistan 99 percent of Muslims favor making Sharia law the law of the land; in Azerbaijan just 8 percent favor this. Factors other than faith are at play here. This is not to say that the Muslim faith in its diversity of expressions should not be engaged with critically. Groups like ISIS and Boko Haram commit horrific acts of violence in the name of Islam, and it is not enough to simply say, “They are not true Muslims.” But neither should their actions be used to perpetuate what the theologian William T. Cavanaugh calls “the myth of religious violence,” the idea that religion is “more inclined toward violence than secular ideologies and institutions.” What, then, can Catholics do to elevate the conversation around Islam? First, we must recognize that narratives matter. According to a poll by the Public Religion Research Institute in 2011, only about a third of Americans personally know a Muslim, and 86 percent report knowing little or nothing about Islam. If what most Americans know about Islam is what they see in the headlines—rebels beheading journalists in Syria and kidnapping school girls in Nigeria—it is easy to understand why a Pew poll in 2014 found 50 percent, the highest share since 2002, believe Islam is more likely to encourage violence than other religions. These stories deserve our attention; but so too does the fact that Malala Yousufzai, who recently won the Nobel Peace Prize for her work promoting girls’ education, is Muslim, as were four others among the past 12 peace laureates. Catholics can also follow Pope Francis’ lead by creating a “culture of encounter” with Muslims. This fall Bishop Arthur Serratelli of the Diocese of Paterson, N.J., attended an iftar, the evening meal at which Muslims break their Ramadan fast. At the dinner the bishop joined Imam Mohammad Qatanani in a discussion about volunteerism, another fruitful ground for interfaith engagement. The Interfaith Youth Corps, for example, fosters cooperation among faith and secular communities through service work on over 100 campuses nationwide. Catholic high schools and universities could also incorporate introductory classes on Islam into their curriculum and welcome imams as campus chaplains, as Georgetown University has done since 1999. In a world where senseless terror threatens Muslim and Christians alike, we must take up the call of the Second Vatican Council, in the “Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions,” “to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.” ADULT CONFIRMATION If you are an ADULT or young adult that has not received the Sacrament of Confirmation, we encourage you to contact us so that we might assist you with receiving this wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit.
