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

Miracles of Faith

Besides being cured, what do Nathan (first reading) and the leper who thanked Jesus (Gospel) have in common? Both of them began to believe. Nathan proclaims Israel’s God to be the only God. The only leper who returned to thank Jesus was “glorifying God in a loud voice” (Luke 17:15). It makes me wonder, what miracles do we see that help us grow in faith?

For an answer, we can look at a second thing they had in common: they both asked for help. Sometimes we get caught up in self-sufficiency mode, thinking we have to handle all our problems by ourselves. We may miss out on ways to solve those problems by not asking for help. If you think asking for help is a sign of weakness, you may be missing a chance for God to act through one of your friends and give you support. And, of course, you can ask God for help in prayer.

We may have friends who help us in times of need or inspire us with their faith, but we have to decide to make a leap of faith ourselves. The third thing that Nathan and the leper did in common was express their faith. You can spend your whole life thinking that you are a Christian, but if you never express that faith, it will be just a theory. St. Paul in the second reading, for example, was suffering in prison, but he didn’t mind because his suffering demonstrated the importance of Jesus’ message to him. So he wrote from prison in the hope that other Christians would be encouraged in their faith. Perhaps you know of someone who inspired you with their faithfulness and dedication. Having a friend who helps us grow in faith can be a very nice miracle indeed.

Respect Life Corner:

Forty Days for Life Campaign Saves more than 16,004 babies

The Forty Days for Life Campaign has been successful in saving the lives of thousands of babies nationally since it began more than ten years ago.

In one city alone, Charlotte, NC, the lives of 46 children were saved because of prayer, witness, and a courageous move by a local pregnancy center. A local pregnancy center parks its mobile ultrasound RV outside the abortion center. Since the size of the RV makes it almost impossible to ignore, it has encouraged so many women to step inside, reject abortion and choose LIFE for their babies. Prayer works!

Nearly 200 abortion workers have quit since the beginning of 40 Days for Life and more than 100 abortion facilities have closed nationwide. In fact, abortion rates in America have hit an all-time low! In 2017, an estimated 862,320 abortions were performed in the U.S. down from more than a million in 2011. The abortion rate (abortions per 1,000 women) has also decreased from 16.9 in 2011 to 13.5 in 2017.

Learn, Act, Connect, Pray: Read about social justice issues. Saving the lives of the unborn belong in this category. Sign up to take a hour or two weekly at your nearest 40 Days for Life campaign. Email info@40daysforlife.com for more information. Start a discussion with other parishioners after Mass for awareness. Attend an adoration hour and pray for the dignity of all life in all its stages and situations. Or, start a group to pray the rosary for LIFE. The Rosary is the world prayer to end abortion – The Rosary. Ask Mary, the Mother of God, to touch the hearts and minds of our legislators and voters to Choose LIFE.

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. And if you would like to help by visiting some of those that are homebound, please contact the office also. Together we can celebrate the Year of Mercy!
