The Beauty of the Christian Marriage

How beautiful, then, the marriage of two Christians, two who are one in home, one in desire, one in the way of life they follow, one in the religion they practice…
Nothing divides them either in flesh or in spirit…They pray together, they worship together, they fast together; instructing one another, encouraging one another, strengthening one another. Side by side they visit God’s church and partake God’s banquet, side by side they face difficulties and persecution, share their consolations. They have no secrets from one another; they never shun each other’s company; they never bring sorrow to each other’s hearts…Seeing this, Christ rejoices. To such as these He gives His peace. Where there are two together, there also He is present. 3rd Century theologian, Tertullian

No Stunt Man for Jesus

Today’s first and second readings seem to contradict each other. In the Acts of the Apostles, Paul and Barnabas remind the other disciples that they would “undergo many hardships to enter the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22). But in the second reading from Revelation, John says there will be “no more . . . mourning, wailing, or pain” (Revelation 21:4). These two sides of the Kingdom show how real our faith is. Life is frequently contradictory. A woman in labor moves from pain to joy in seconds after her child is born. She doesn’t forget the pain, but knows it is necessary for the joy of new birth. Only the artist knows how much effort and pain went into the creation of a painting, sculpture, or symphony.

That’s why Jesus in the Gospel talks of his coming death on the cross as the way that God will glorify him. Even God does not do things the easy way. Jesus didn’t send a stunt man to take his place on the cross. It was God who was born in poverty, in a time of high infant mortality (even higher when Herod tried to kill the Child). It was God who suffered, from the Agony in the Garden through the Crucifixion.

So when Jesus tells us to love one another as he has loved us, he knows what it cost. And he also knew that his death on the cross would be the beginning of a way of love that will eventually lead to “no more death or mourning, wailing or pain.” We’re not there yet, but we know we are not alone in our suffering for “God himself will always be with them” (Revelation 21:3).

The family of Adelyn Jones still needs your prayers.
Adelyn’s mommy & daddy – Olivia & Eric Jones, are still asking everyone to pray for their 5 year old daughter who was diagnosed the summer of 2017 with leukemia. Adelyn is doing as well as can be expected, considering all the drugs she’s on, but she still needs your prayers. She still has a long road ahead of her that she has to continue to meet with her doctors and more visits to the hospital for such things as  lumbar punctures, intrathecal chemo injections in her spine, and bone marrow aspirations.

Please be a prayer soldier in Princess Addy’s Army!

News For This Week:


Fifth Sunday of Easter

The love command. Today, Paul and Barnabas proclaim Good News. John sees a new heaven and a new earth. Jesus tells us how to live within this resurrected reality: love one another. Short. Not always easy. But profound. Fr. Clarence Rivers wrote “God Is Love” in 1964 – listen to this compelling refrain (John 4:6) and song at: http://www.godsongs.net/2015/09/god-is-love-and-he-who-abides-in-love-abides-in-love-clarence-rivers.html.

  • How has God loved me?
  • Who will I choose to love? What will I do?
  • Doing mercy work is a perfect way to manifestthe love command. What will I do this week?

Respect Life Corner:

Mary, Pro-Life Inspiration: Mother Mary has many beautiful titles; Patroness of the Americas, Patroness of the New Evangelization and Patroness of the Unborn. Mary is also a perfect example for authentic Christian living. She shows immense faith and total gift of herself at the Annunciation; she shows sensitivity and her charitable spirit when she visits Elizabeth; we see her love and maternal care for new live when she shelters baby Jesus in the stable; we see her at the foot of the cross, with her heart open for all of humanity.

Learn, Act, Connect, Pray: How can we follow Mary’s example of living? How can we strive to be life- giving and love-affirming towards those in our communities? If you don’t already, look into praying the Rosary or the Angelus or the Regina Caeli with those that are close to you and remember Mary’s message of life, love, and true freedom.

If you know someone who can no longer attend mass, is sick, or homebound but who would like a visit or to receive Communion, please contact Kelly at the rectory office by calling 542-3423, or sending an email to sacredheartduquoin@gmail.com.
