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

Getting to Know the Trinity

As if his own life, his teachings about God’s love, his miracles, his death and resurrection were not enough, Jesus told us something about God that we never would have imagined: There are three Persons in one God. It is also something we cannot completely comprehend. So instead of trying to explain it, let’s look at what it means for us believers.

One thing it shows is that God wants to be known by us. In ancient times, people would expect their gods to be mysterious and hidden. Many cultures thought that you could control a spirit or god if you knew its name. God sees us not as a threat, but as beloved children. Just as a couple falling in love wants to know everything about each other, so God wants to be known by those whom God loves. That leads to my second point.

The Trinity also shows us that “God is love” (1 John 4:16) because the three Persons are united in one God. God calls us to be united in love with God and with each other. Remember that God knows us perfectly and still loves us. Yet knowing our weaknesses and our sins does not hurt God’s love for us. On the contrary, our weaknesses allow God to help us by forgiving sins, or inspiring someone to come to our assistance. We may not be able to grasp the full meaning of the Holy Trinity, but knowing that God shares this with faithful people helps us to love God even more.

Please Pray For . . .

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!

THE DIOCESE OF BELLEVILLE

June 10, 2019
The Commemoration of Mary, Mother of the Church

Dear Deacon Schrage,
May the peace of Jesus Christ be with you!

I was very pleased to confirm your vocation by calling you to Holy Orders and ordaining you and welcoming you to the Order of Deacon, on June 8, 2019. You have now assumed your place at the side of the priests of the Diocese as co-workers with me in the field of the Lord’s harvest.

I am now pleased to formally appoint you to Pastoral Ministry as a Deacon at Sacred Heart Parish in Du Quoin and Immaculate Conception Parish in Tamaroa. This appointment is effective June l, 2019 and will end in August when you return to Seminary.

Please read and study carefully canons 273, 274 §2, 275,276, 278 §3, 282, and 283, in your copy of the Code of Canon Law, concerning your state of life as a member of the clergy. If you have not already done so, please speak with Father Joseph O. Oganda, the Pastor, to develop the details of your Ministry Agreement. I am confident that you will both be a source of support and encouragement to each other.

May God continue to bless you, dear Carl, as you continue your diaconal ministry in the Church of southern Illinois , serving your friends daily in Jesus’s name. I urge you to serve always in complete fidelity to the magisterium of the Church. May you be a true witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ. And may God, who has begun this good work in you, bring it to fulfillment.

Prayerfully yours in Christ,
The Most Reverend Edward K. Braxton, Ph.D., S.T.D. Bishop of Belleville

News For This Week:


Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
Giving glory to God. 

In the daily prayer of the Church – the five to seven times for prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours (or Divine Office) – every psalm and canticle that is sung ends with this doxology:
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.
Oh, that every word from our own mouths would in big and little ways give God glory!

  • What first words will I speak at waking to sing thepraise of God?
  • How will I give thanks to Father-Son-Spirit throughout the day?
  • What last words will I speak at bedtime?

Three to be ordained as Transitional Deacons…

There will be three men ordained at Transitional Deacons on June 8th at St. Peter’s Cathedral at 10:00 am. Please pray for Carl Schrage, Nicholas Fleming and Joel Seipp. As they continue their journey to become priests in the Diocese of Belleville.

Mr. Carl Schrage will celebrate his First Mass as a Transitional Deacon on Sunday, June 9th at his home parish of St. Rose, and then you will be seeing him here at our parishes for the next couple of months. Please welcome him in to our Christian Community as he will be praying with us and learning while he is under the guidance of Fr. Joseph. Let us engage him into the life of our parishes.

Carl Schrage is the son of Edgar and Ruth (both deceased) and is the 7th of 8 children (3 of which are deceased). His education began at St. Rose Grade School in St. Rose, then on to Central High School in Breese, University of Illinois (B.S. Accountancy) Urbana – Champaign, Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology (Class of 2020).

The call: “I had always considered the priesthood, since I was a child. Throughout my career, I never stopped considering the priesthood. Finally a few years ago, I felt God telling me it was not too late, so I began to pray on it. Accidently, I bumped into Bishop Stan at the convent in Ruma on Christmas day in 2014. When I met him, he could sense I was considering the priesthood, so I started meeting with him for spiritual direction. After several months of spiritual direction and discernment, I entered the seminary in August 2015.
