4 March 8, 2015 Third Sunday in Lent Page Four A Quick Reflec on On Marriage. Jonathan Doyle In his culture changing book Love and Responsibility, John Paul II said that a young man is never more vulnerable than when he is on his knees asking a young woman to marry him. If you think about that moment there is so much taking place. With a single word of a single syllable, his en re future hangs in the balance. Yes or No. The en re path of his life stretches out before him in a moment. He is at the mercy of another human person s radical freedom to choose. Ge ng down to it. Let s get down to it. Marriage is about the Trinity. It is about bringing into the world the witness of the eternal, stable, perfect Trinity. Just as the Trinity is a community of persons whose perfect love overflows in abundant life that holds the very universe in being, so is marriage a community of persons that, when open to the grace of the sacrament which it reveals, becomes a life giving community of love that sustains the socie es in which it flourishes. Even more simply; no marriage, no culture. Marriage is a voca on because the root of that word vocare means to draw forth from within. Marriage calls us out of our terrible isola on and selfishness. It draws forth the life of grace from within if we will but slowly and humbly mirror the pa ern of Christ himself, who came to serve and not to be served. As one friend, recently said to me in an , Marriage is a race to be the first loser. Christ poured himself out on Calvary. My wife and I are called to pour ourselves out daily in love and service for each other and our children. And if I have learned one thing so far in twelve years it is that I cannot do this if my inner life is not hidden in Christ and in the heart of the Church. The sacraments bring Christ to me and Christ is slowly and pa ently making me the husband and father I could never have been by willpower alone. Witness changes the world. It was the witness of Chris an marriages and families that arguably had the single greatest impact on Imperial Rome. At the me of Christ there was massive issues with divorce, infan cide, immorality and social breakdown. Sounds like the pages of any paper you could pick up today. However, in many ways it was the witness of Chris an marriage and family life that transformed the Roman Empire. God is the God of small things. He is the God of the mustard seed. A single marriage, lived under grace, sustained by the sacraments, embedded in the Church, can change the neighbors, the neighborhood, the na on. The grace is always there. All we have to do is cooperate.
5 Page Five Third Sunday in Lent March 8, 2015 God is the Giver of Every Good Gi Principles of Stewardship Stewardship is based on the spiritual principles of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus. It is a way of thanking God for all the blessing God has given us by returning to God a por on of our me, talent, and treasure. Stewardship is based on our need to give back to God our of gra tude, not on the Church s need to receive. It is based on the premise that all that we have and all that we are comes from God and, as a way of thanking God for all our blessings, we return a por on of the me, talent, and treasure that has been allo ed to us Please con nue to give prayerful thought to your commitment of me talent and treasure to the Church and community.

To filmowa biografia Prezydenta Kaczyńskiego przedstawiona w sposób precyzyjny i szczegółowy i obejmująca Jego polityczne zmagania w III RP, ukoronowane prezydenturą, którą to przerwała tragiczna śmierć w katastrofie pod Smoleńskiem w 2010 roku.

Reynolds St. Ferdinand Parish A long-term employee at my workplace died suddenly last week. Ken Guy had been at Topco for 41 years when he re red a couple of years back. At that me, Topco itself was pushing 70 years old, and Ken was 67 when he passed away. As our president put it in a shared le er to Ken s wife Jennifer, Ken was the face of Topco. I started in 1978, so I grew up there as well, and Ken and I occasionally traveled to our member-owners to tell the Topco story. He gave the overview; I did the Quality Assurance por on. Ken o en began with the same message, and I can hear him saying it even now: The only trouble with drawing a en on to yourself is you draw a en- on to yourself. Like me, Ken was proud to speak of our Topco work. I learned at the memorial service, however, that this work barely had a place in Ken s away-from-work conversa ons. Perhaps this is why I didn t hear Topco men oned once. I heard from so many though--and over and over--about what a good and kind man Ken was. I knew that. Before the service, I bumped into a friend I hadn t seen in decades. Anne started Topco in 1978 too, and we laughed much about the old days. Back then, we used to go on tour around the building to visit colleagues, and because Ken was such a good and kind man, he was a usual stop. And even though he was a big shot, he never turned us away. Music was a major part of Ken s life. In fact, the website that the family put together in his honor carries this headline: Life is a song. Love is the music. I didn t know the depth of Ken s musical immersion un l the memorial service, but when I took guitar classes years ago at Chicago s Old Town School, I learned through some work colleagues that Ken was connected with the place and that he was an accomplished guitarist. I had wri en a song for my wife back then but at that point, I didn t know which chords went with the melody in my head. I asked Ken if he d help me. He said sure, so I gave him the lyrics and a tape of me singing. He gave me the chords. His C s and G s are s ll on my music stand, and looking at them now brings both smiles and tears. Which is precisely how the memorial service--a thanks-giving for Ken s life--played out. Smiles and tears all night long. Per Jennifer on the website, the most generous, loving man I have ever known has le us. Per son Mac that night, referencing his father s ways, Make sure those that you love know that you love them. And per daughter Suzanne, Let s all live with a li le more Ken Guy in our lives. Hmmmm Lent s half over. Old school Catholics o en give things up for the season. New school Catholics o en say they will strive to be be er persons, but the details go lacking. Well, one of the Scripture readings at the service has the details: The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, pa ence, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Very Ken Guy-esque. As we discussed in this space weeks ago, we all want to have a good Lent, and now Suzanne--without even knowing it--has given us the path. Yeah. Let s all just put a li le more Ken Guy in our lives.
