My travels around town…
This week is a good time to let you know about some of the events I took part in this month. I’ll
start with my visit to the local Mosque. It is called ‘DarusSalam’ which means ‘House of
peace.’ You’ve probably spotted the dome and twin minarets as you travel along North Avenue;
it’s just west of 355 and Swift Road. On January 9 they hosted an open house. As I entered, I
noticed it is a really clean and well-kept house of prayer. Visitors were asked to take off their
shoes or wear those slippers workers sometimes wear when they come to your house. The
prayer area is carpeted and usually empty of furniture, although chairs were present for the
visitors. The day began with a brief description of the mosque. It is filled with golden
calligraphy and a large chandelier fills the center of the dome. Then we went downstairs for refreshments and brief
description of Islam; there was time for open questions. We ended the day back upstairs with prayer. As the men
knelt and bowed and prayed their daytime prayers, I said the Church’s daytime prayers. I would say that these
neighbors of ours have a fearful concern about world events and national events and that they simply wanted to
share who they are in order to maintain a spirit of peace. I would also say that this would be something we could
share with them. The members of this group were eager to profess their belief in the One God. Christians and Jews
also believe in the One God, living and true. The people I met were somewhat in error regarding Judaism and
Christianity, it is only by mutual dialogue that error can be uncovered. These are our neighbors and it is important
to share with our neighbors who we are.
On January 23 I attended once again the local Prayer for Christian Unity. This year it was held at the Gary United
Methodist Church in Wheaton. Catholics and other Christians gathered together for prayer including singing and
the reading of the Scriptures along with a sermon. Afterwards, we mingled together and shared some refreshments.
As Catholics, we’re accustomed to the Mass; in this setting, Mass is not offered due to the different beliefs
regarding the Sacraments. As Christians, we are not in full agreement, or communion, regarding the Eucharist. So
we would not share Holy Communion together. We do share much regarding the Scriptures, our belief in Jesus,
and the Holy Trinity, and it is a blessing to share that together in a spirit of prayer. Here, too, I have met friendship
among our neighbors. It is important to pray together with our neighbors, most especially those who are Christian.
It was our Lord’s prayer at the Last Supper, that we might all be one (John 17:21). This unity is a gift and a sign of
his Catholic Church, so it is important that we live it and share it with others.
And that is why I’m sharing this month’s travels with you. These types of events and contacts and conversations
are not simply the work of the pastor—they are to be part of the life of every Catholic Christian. Who are your
neighbors? Do you get to know them? Do they get to know you? Do you share together mutual dialogue and
mutual prayer, as you are able? I hope so. One thing is certain: Where there is true prayer and dialogue, there is no
violence. In fact, there is peace. If you want a peaceful neighborhood, get to know your neighbors.
With my prayers,
Fr. Jerome
Third Sunday in Ordinary Time — January 24, 2016
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring glad tidings to the poor.

LIVING AS THE BODY OF CHRIST
Some of Saint Paul’s best known and most beloved
imagery is contained in the passages from First Corinthians
that we have heard last week and this week: the many gifts
granted by the one same Spirit and the many members
making up the one Body of Christ. Few passages from
sacred scripture more accurately sum up how Christian
vocations work together.
Unlike some of Paul’s other writings, which are a
product of the social and religious conventions of his time,
these enable us to look at our own lives and the lives of
those around us to discern what gifts, what vocations the
Holy Spirit has given for the good of all. We can likewise
know the joys and sorrows of the other members of the
Body and share in them for the strengthening of the whole
Body of Christ.

income cannot exceed $55,000. Additionally, the property must
be used exclusively for the owner’s primary residence.

THE 2016 CATHOLIC MINISTRIES ANNUAL
APPEAL IN UNDERWAY
“Chosen by God’s Grace”
The Appeal not only funds many of the operations of the
diocese, it funds services that are of great help to the ministries
here in our parish. For example, funds support…Catholic and
Religious Education, Seminarian Education and Vocations,
Family and Life Ministries, and Hispanic Ministry.
How do we acknowledge God’s Grace and show Him our
gratitude? One way is by giving back to God the gifts He
shared with us. We can support our parish, our diocese and the
church throughout the world with gifts of time, talent and
treasure.
Our parish goal is $63,067. With your financial support, we can
exceed this goal. When we exceed our goal in pledges, we will
receive 65% of the amount over goal for use in our parish.
Please answer Bishop Conlon’s request and make a generous
pledge. All pledges can be paid in ten (10) installments. Thank
you in advance for your support.

LA VIDA DEL CUERPO DE CRISTO
Algunas de las imágenes más conocidas y queridas de
san Pablo se encuentran en los pasajes de la primera carta a
los corintios que hemos escuchado la semana pasada y hoy:
los muchos dones de un mismo Espíritu y los muchos miembros que componen el Cuerpo de Cristo. Pocos pasajes de la
Sagrada Escritura resumen con mayor claridad cómo las vocaciones cristianas trabajan en colaboración.
A diferencia de otros escritos de san Pablo, producto de
las convenciones sociales y religiosas de su época, estos nos
permiten mirar nuestra propia vida y la vida de los que están
a nuestro alrededor para discernir los dones, la vocación que
el Espíritu Santo nos ha dado para el bien de todos. Así también podemos conocer las alegrías y las penas de los otros
miembros del Cuerpo y compartirlos para así fortalecer todo
el Cuerpo de Cristo.

Año Jubilar de la Misericordia
24 de enero de 2016
Tercer Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Cuando se anunció este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia, el Papa Francisco subrayó el evento
del Evangelio de hoy: Jesús proclamando en la sinagoga de su propio pueblo su misión ungida por
el Espíritu para cumplir plenamente las promesas del profeta Isaías. Así que el Papa Francisco dice que la misión de
Jesús es nuestra misión como discípulos de Jesús este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia: llevar la Buena Nueva a los
pobres, la libertad a los cautivos, la vista a los ciegos, el rescate a los cautivos y a proclamar un año de gracia del Señor,
un año de la misericordia de Dios. El Papa Francisco nos desafía a interpretar la misión de Jesús a las necesidades
presentes: a consolar con palabras y obras a las personas que sean pobres espiritual o materialmente, a liberar a quienes
están atados a las nuevas formas de esclavitud de la sociedad moderna, a abrir los ojos a las personas que están ciegas
por su mismo egoísmo y a restaurar la dignidad a todas aquellas personas a las que se les despojo. ¡Para actuar con
misericordia con un espíritu de alegría!
