SACRED HEART AND IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

Sacred Heart Parish of Du Quoin, Illinois – Founded In 1857
and
Immaculate Conception Parish of Tamaroa, Illinois – Founded in 1890

~ TWENTY-SEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME ~
October 02, 2022

We hope your stay in 0ur area is pleasant and enjoyable .
We pray for your safety on your return travel back home

We hope you will join us again as we continue
to discover the difference God’s love makes in our lives!
We’re blessed because you’re here!

Often we feel that our faith is weak, unable to overcome all our doubts or give us the confidence to face our trials. Jesus’ closest friends, his apostles, may have felt the same way, as today we hear them aske him to increase their faith. Jesus responds by issuing them a challenge, telling them that even a small amount of faith has the power to do great things. Let us accept that challenge today, recognizing that our faith, however uncertain, has brought us herein the first place to worship the Lord and celebrate the Eucharist.

Taking Care of Business

When we were kids, my brothers and sisters and I thought that you were not supposed to say the blessing before meals in a restaurant. You were not supposed to flaunt your faith in public. It probably had more to do with fear of being embarrassed if non-believers saw us praying. I think of that when I hear St. Paul telling Timothy, “God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7). All three readings mention the difficulties that people of faith will encounter, and each reading has its own way of facing those hardships.

Jesus gives the practical advice: Look at the difficulties of being a disciple as just part of your job. No servant expects to be praised by his master for doing his job. So if the Lord says I must forgive those who hurt me, or be patient with customers, or share what I have with the poor–no problem; it’s part of the job of a disciple. If someone I know is in pain, I’m there to support them. Too tired to go to church after work on a holy day? Just taking care of business.

So how do we get the strength and self-control to roll with the punches? Paul reminds us in the second reading to stir the gifts of the Spirit into flame. If you take time to pray every day, if you look for God in other people, if you see difficulties as your share of the cross–you’ll find those gifts of faith, power, love, and self-control beginning to grow stronger inside.

We can trust that this is more than just wishful thinking by going to the first reading. When the prophet cries out for help with the misery and violence in the world, he hears God’s promise that the vision (of hope for deliverance) will be fulfilled even if it seems to be delayed. We too hear that promise when we start to get discouraged, for God’s promise “will not disappoint” (Habakkuk 2:3).

Mother Teresa Cursillo Fourth Day group will meet the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
Meeting is at 12:15 pm at Haffner Hall.

Are you Searching for something more…

Christianity isn’t simply a philosophy for life – the center of Christianity is a person. In this week’s lesson, we will look at the life of Jesus and what he came to do. Ultimately, we need to decide if Jesus really was who he said he was. We can’t sit on the fence. Because if Jesus really was who he said he was, we need to make him the Lord of our lives, and everything changes. Come join us in adult faith formation this Wednesday, September 28th, after the 5:30 Mass. We will meet in Haffner Hall, where we will watch a short video from Formed, and then discuss how Jesus affects our life stories. Anyone, high school age and above, we would love for you to join us. Hope to see you there.

Are you, or do you know of someone who is interested in learning more about the Catholic faith?

Sacred Heart/Immaculate Conception and St. Bruno’s will begin classes for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults on Thursday October 6th. These classes meet weekly from October through April. You do not have to join the Church. You can just find out more about Catholic faith. If you are interested, please contact Christine Kelley at 618-559-6581.

YEAR OF EUCHARISTIC REVIVAL

When the Church speaks of the “Real Presence” she means “the whole Christ is truly present, body, blood, soul, and divinity, under the appearances of bread and wine – the glorified Christ who rose from the dead after dying for our sins. (The Real Presence of Jesus Christ is the Sacrament of the Eucharist, USCCB, 2020). To experience the Real Presence at our parish, we have Eucharistic Adoration every other Wednesday (watch the bulletin for dates), and the church handicap door is open weekdays until 4 pm for anyone who would like to visit the Real Presence of Christ in the Tabernacle.

Weekly News:

MASS INTENTIONS

When a priest celebrates Mass each day, he offers each celebration of the Eucharist for a particular person, or intention. By doing so he applies special graces from God upon that person or intention.

Would you like to offer a mass for someone special? If so, please contact Kelly at the office: 542-3423 (except Thursday’s, call 496-5867). Mass intentions are $10 per person.

PARISH REGISTRATION

It is important to be registered in a parish so sacrament information can be logged and available for reference for any life event that occurs. Please pardon the oversight if you have not been receiving envelopes, or if there has been a life event (new to the parish, marriage, births, new addresses etc.) that we are unaware of. Give the office a call at 542-3423 and we will get you back on the registry and will answer any questions you may have
