Blessings and Glory

The second reading from Ephesians is rather long and with only six sentences, it is not easy to follow. If you take it apart, you see that Paul is very encouraging. He is giving a description of the many blessings God has given us.

He says that we are chosen by God and destined for spiritual blessings: First is Redemption, meaning that Christ saved us from punishment for our sins by forgiving them instead. Second is the plan of God for saving everyone, by making Christ ruler of the universe. We have to accept these gifts by letting go of the temptations around us and holding on to the love we have received from God. The things of the world, possessions, wealth, or power that pretend to make us happy are replaced with love of God; we then share that love with others, so that they know God loves them, too. As our experience of God's love grows, we begin to understand the mystery of how God lives in all people. Another blessing Paul notes is adoption by God to a new relationship as brothers and sisters of Christ; holiness is now for all believers, not just priests or religious.

Paul also reminds us that we are chosen and destined to help God bring his plan, his Kingdom, to completion. When we teach children how to love and share, when we are honest with customers or suppliers, when we are not ashamed to show our faith in Jesus, when we are respectful of the poor, elderly, or disabled, we are slowly building the Kingdom of God, or as Paul says, "to bring all things together in heaven and on earth under Christ" (Eph 1:10)

Paul mentions three times in this reading about "the praise of God's glory." (Eph 1:14) When we are able to help or forgive, or just be a good example to others, we want them to know that God is in all the good we do. Instead of taking credit for the results, we give God the glory. No, you don't have to take off your glasses and put on a red cape before helping others. Just mention that God does the real work, we just try not to get in his way.

Thank You!!

Thank you to a generous donor
who paid to have the cemetery asphalt road sealed
to prevent future damage to the road.
Your kindness will be rewarded!

To the Parishioners of Sacred Heart:

If there is anyone who has a veteran buried at Sacred Heart Cemetery and they are not getting a flag put on their grave for Memorial Day or Veterans Day, please contact Jerry or Marian Whitson at 618-542-2748 or marianrw@nwcable.net or jeremwhit@nwcable.net. We try not to miss anyone but sometimes we just don’t know.

The family of Adelyn Jones still needs your prayers.
Adelyn’s mommy & daddy - Olivia & Eric Jones, is still asking everyone to pray for their 4 year old daughter who was diagnosed last summer 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.

PSR & High School Youth News...

We hope everyone is having a great summer!
We are busy planning a few changes
for this upcoming school year!

The first exciting event will be a Swim party for all PSR, St. Bruno, Immaculate Conception, and high school students from our parishes! It will be on Monday, August 13th from 6-9 pm at Mary Beth & Joe Lane’s home (8775 Majestic Rd.). Parents are also welcome to come. We ask that those families with kids in grades 1-8 to bring a snack to share, and those in high school to bring a bottle of soda.

We will discuss further plans for our youth activities and faith formation while at the party.
Our hope is that we can get all our youth involved in more activities together.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to call Mary Beth Lane at 618-790-3824.

WITH THANKFUL HEARTS...

While Father Joseph has been enjoying a much deserved vacation, we have been blessed with the presence of Father Walter! But both good things must come to an end: Father Joseph’s vacation will end and he will return to us next week, and Father Walter’s presence will be missed as he will be retuning to Chicago to continue his studies at Loyola University.

Fr. Walter’s last weekend will end on Sunday, July 22nd. Thank you to everyone who made Father Walter feel welcomed and showed him around our beautiful southern Illinois area. He enjoyed visiting with everyone and will have plenty of memories to help him remember his services and visit among us.

Please continue to pray for Father Joseph and Father Walter as they continue to share and spread the word of God as we journey together in this gift of life.

Peace and Blessings to Father Walter!

In appreciation...

The parishes of Sacred Heart and Immaculate Conception are so grateful to Father Walter for serving us so faithfully since Father Joseph has been on vacation. As a way of showing our gratitude, all parishioners are invited to a potluck after the Wednesday evening Mass on July 18th. The potluck will be at Haffner Hall around 6:00 p.m. Hope to see you all there.

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

We are all in this together. Once we are baptized, that is, chosen in Christ, we do not face the world alone. Today, we live and pray in groups of two and more. We are urged to travel light today: to take sandals and walking sticks (as at Passover and Exodus), to trust the community of believers, and to trust God who will provide.

  • How will I focus less on me and more on us this week?
  • What can I give up and give away, in order to “travel light”?
  • On whom will I depend?

CALLED BY GOD

Today's scriptures invite us to listen to two calls. The first is the call issued by the LORD to the prophet Amos, the "shepherd and a dresser of sycamores" (Amos 7:14). The second is the call the Lord Jesus issued to the Twelve, whom he sent out "two by two" (Mark 6:7). These faithful people responded to the call, prophesying and preaching to the people to whom they had been sent. Each of us received a call when we were baptized. The second reading invites us to ponder that call as we are reminded that we are chosen in Christ and that, in love, God "destined us for adoption" (Ephesians 1:5). As adopted daughters and sons of God we are called to bring the presence of Christ into our marriages, families, schools, and places of work. Let us be inspired today to say yes to the call we hear once again through God's living word.

Summer time is here and that can mean increased food insecurity for children in Illinois. Many kids need access to healthy meals when school is out for the summer. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) steps in to provide free meals to children 18 years and younger at approved sites. In our area the sites are Smith Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church (101 N. Maple St.) and Du Quoin Elementary School (845 East Jackson Street).

Respect Life Corner

Love is Our Life Mission – “The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring comfort to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captive.” God‘s love is our life mission. If we choose to embrace this mission, we will have a new perspective on many issues. This may also mean that we will sometimes live as minorities, with different values from our surrounding secular culture.

Learn, Act, Connect, Pray -  If we understand that love is our mission then we have learned a basic truth that will shape many other areas of life. Pray for the ability to see clearly the path to take when situations arise that are contrary to our beliefs as Catholics.
