Do Whatever He Tell You
Dear Friends,
The other line that spoke to me this week as I reflected on the
Scriptures is Mary’s very short line to the waiters at the Feast. Her words
to them are her words to us. “Do whatever he tells you.” Too often we
do whatever we want, whatever feels good, whatever is easiest, or whatever
will make the least waves. We are asked today to do whatever Jesus tells us.
What is He asking us to do? How is He asking us to live? Those questions
need to be answered in the quiet of our own hearts. We do, though, need
to answer them. He tells us; He shows us; He commands us, and He guides
us. We must follow. Not only when we sit here in Church on Sundays, but
during the week, in our everyday lives.
Ordinary Time...We are back in it for the next
four weeks, until we begin the season of Lent. Perhaps
you haven’t noticed, but the days are getting longer
and we are heading into spring! But there’s a lot to
accomplish before we get there.
Two great lines from the Scripture readings
this week will be good for us to ponder. The first, from the letter to the
Corinthians speaks of gifts. We all have gifts. They’ve been given to us
from God through the Holy Spirit. Everyone possesses some sort of gift,
because of God’s great grace and generosity. We hear many of the gifts
listed in Paul’s epistle.There are so many more. “To each individual the
manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.” An older
translation of the Greek in Paul’s Epistle said that the gifts were given “for
the common good.” I prefer the old translation.
So the Scriptures challenge us today to recognize and share our gifts,
and to do whatever he tells us. If we do, we will be fulfilled and our world
will be better.
Speaking of doing whatever Jesus tells us and sharing our gifts, I
would like to congratulate Jennifer Cortez, who, on Sunday, received the
Christifideles Award from Archbishop Cupich. The award, given to lay
leaders from throughout the Archdiocese recognizes extraordinary work
in the service of God and the Church. The staff recommended Jennifer to
the Archbishop with the following comments. In her role as Director of
Stewardship and Liturgy at St. John Berchmans, Jennifer has shown
an extraordinary commitment and dedication to our parish and
school. Her hard work creates a beautiful and prayerful liturgical
environment and experience for our parishioners. She also cultivates
and engages donors throughout our community to help us sustain
and grow our fundraising programs at the school and parish levels.
We are so grateful for presence and work at SJB. I add my thanks and
congratulations to that of the staff. We are lucky to have Jennifer on our
team.
You and I have been given gifts to share, not just to hold on to, or use
to lord over someone else, but to share. God wants us to
1. To become aware of our gifts,
2. To give credit to the originator, to the giver of the gifts
(no one else but God),
3. To be grateful for the gifts,
4. To share the gifts.
It is a simple process. True discipleship requires that we complete all
the steps. Each flows logically from the other. But we often forget one or
two of the steps. Sometimes we get in the habit of believing that gifts are
self-gotten. We forget that all we are and all we have come from God. This
leads to an unhealthy self-reliance, narcissism or egocentrism. At times of
our lives we may not be aware of the gifts we possess. We need to realize
that God created us and that we are, as the psalmist writes, “beautifully and
wonderfully made.” God, in his creative genius, fashioned each of us with
a plethora of gifts. Throughout our lives, in every stage of our lives, God
reveals those gifts to us. We need to be aware, to watch as they are revealed.
We need to thank God for the gifts and we need to use the gifts to make
ourselves better people and this world a better place.
Peace,
P.S.With 10 days to go, we still need to raise $15,000 to reach our $900,000
goal. Please give.
Our Mission:
Rooted in Christ, touched by His love and mercy, the Saint John Berchmans community finds unity in its diversity, proclaims by Word, Sacrament, and
service, that the Kingdom of God is at hand, and declares that all are welcome in this place.

A YEAR OF MERCY
VISIT THE
IMPRISONED
Parish Announcements
As he entered his merciful Passion,
Jesus was arrested and imprisoned.
Then they came and laid hands on Jesus
and arrested him. (Matthew 26:50) We
visit the imprisoned, and we meet
Jesus. Paul knew the power of Christ
through his own imprisonment: It has
become known . . . to everyone . . . that
my imprisonment is for Christ; and
most of the brothers and sisters, having been made confident
in the Lord by my imprisonment, dare to speak the word with
greater boldness and without fear. (Philippians 1:13–14)
THE BLACK CHRIST OF ESQUIPULAS
Please join the Spanish language community of Saint John Berchmans as
they celebrate the Solemn feast in honor of the Black Christ of Esquipulas
at the 11:30am Mass on Sunday, January 17th. A simple reception will
follow in the parish hall. The Black Christ of Esquipulas is an image of
Jesus Crucified revered by millions of faithful in Central America that is
in the Basilica of Esquipulas in the city of the same name in Guatemala.
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
In honor of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, both the school and
the rectory will be closed on Monday, January 18, 2016. There will be a
7am Mass as scheduled.
END OF YEAR GIVING/CHRISTMAS APPEAL
SJB HONORS JENNIFER CORTEZ
We need your help. With God’s help (and the help of many of you!), we have come
a long way. We’ve eliminated over a half a million dollars in operating debt, and
completed over six million dollars of long deferred capital and life safety restoration.
After the loans were paid and the construction projects finalized, we have less than a
million dollars in capital debt – which I hope to eliminate by January 31, 2016. If we
raise $430,000 we will be debt free for the first time in decades.
On Sunday, January 10th Jennifer Cortez was awarded the Christifideles
award by Archbishop at Holy Name Cathedral. This award is given to
Archdiocesan lay men and women for their dedication to the Church
and their ministries.
That’s where you come in! We are currently in a match program. Every cent we
raise between now and January 31 will be matched and go against our debt. I ask you
to consider your year-end (or new year) giving. Please consider making a generous
gift to help us become debt free.Whether you give $25,000, $2,500, $250 or $25,
it will be matched and help us reach our goal. To give online, please visit our website
at www.stjohnberchmans.org.
Thanks for helping us reach our goal! Know that I give thanks to God for you.
SJB SWEATER DRIVE
Do you have sweaters, sweatshirts or coats that are in
good condition that you no longer wear? Bring them to
SJB! We will be collecting winter clothing to be donated
to Catholic Charities. This time of year many who are
homeless struggle to stay warm during these cold winter
months, and this is a great way for us to help! Please
bring your donations to the Mass on the week of January
30th and 31st. Donations will be brought up during the
offertory during all Masses. If you are unable to attend
Mass that weekend you are welcome to drop off your
donations at the rectory office during the week. Rectory
office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30am-8:00pm. If
you have any questions please contact the parish office.
Thank you, Jennifer, for all you have done for
SJB and congratulations on this great honor!

Hacer lo que Él Diga
Queridos Amigos,
La otra línea que me llamó la atención esta semana cuando reflexioné
en las Escrituras es la línea muy corta de María a los sirvientes en la Fiesta.
Sus palabras a ellos son sus palabras para nosotros. “Hagan lo que él les
diga.” Con demasiada frecuencia hacemos lo que queremos, lo que nos
conviene, lo que es más fácil, o lo menos posible. Hoy se nos pide hacer lo
que nos dice Jesús. ¿Que nos pide Él que hagamos? ¿Cómo nos pide Él que
vivamos? Esas preguntas deben contestarse con sinceridad en nuestros propios
corazones. Sin embargo, necesitamos responderlas. Nos dice; nos demuestra;
Él nos manda y nos guía. Debemos obedecer. No solamente mientras que
permanecemos aquí en la iglesia los domingos, sino que durante la semana, y
en nuestras vidas cotidianas.
Tiempo Ordinario...Estamos en el tiempo
ordinario por las próximas cuatro semanas, hasta que
comience la temporada de Cuaresma. ¡Quizás no ha
notado, pero los días son más largos y muy pronto
llegará la primavera! Pero hay mucho que lograr antes
de llegar allí.
Dos grandes líneas de las lecturas de esta semana
nos ayudaran a reflexionar. La primera, de la carta a los a los Corintios habla de
dones.Todos tenemos dones. Los hemos recibido de Dios a través del Espíritu
Santo. Cada uno posee algún tipo de don, debido a la generosidad y la gran
gracia de Dios. Escuchamos muchos de los dones mencionados en la epístola
de Pablo. Hay muchos más. “En cada uno se manifiesta el Espíritu para
el bien común”. Una antigua traducción griega de la epístola de Pablo dice
que los dones fueron dados “para el bien de la comunidad.” Yo prefiero la
antigua traducción.
Así que las Escrituras nos desafían hoy a reconocer y compartir nuestros
dones, y de hacer lo que Él nos dice. Si lo hacemos, cumpliremos y nuestro
mundo será mejor.
Hablando de hacer lo que Jesús nos dice y compartir nuestros dones,
me gustaría felicitar a Jennifer Cortez, quien recibió el Premio Christifideles
del Arzobispo Cupich el domingo. El premio, otorgado a los líderes laicos de
toda la Arquidiócesis reconoce la extraordinaria labor en el servicio de Dios y
de la Iglesia. El personal recomendó a Jennifer al Arzobispo con los siguientes
comentarios. En su papel como Directora de Administración y Liturgia
en San Juan Berchmans, Jennifer ha demostrado un extraordinario
compromiso y dedicación a nuestra parroquia y escuela. Su arduo
trabajo crea una experiencia y ambiente litúrgico devoto y hermoso para
nuestros feligreses. Ella también cultiva y se involucra con los donantes
en toda nuestra comunidad para ayudarnos a mantener y hacer
crecer nuestros programas de recaudación de fondos a nivel escolar y
parroquial. Estamos muy agradecidos por su presencia y trabajo en
SJB. Añado mi agradecimiento y felicitaciones. Somos afortunados de tener
Jennifer en nuestro equipo.
Usted y yo hemos recibido esos dones para compartir, no para aferrarnos
a ellos, o presumirlos a los demás, sino para compartirlos. Dios desea que:
1. Reconozcamos esos dones
2. Demos crédito al autor, al donante de esos dones
(nadie más que a Dios)
3. Apreciemos esos dones
4. Compartamos esos dones.
Es un proceso sencillo. El verdadero discipulado requiere que
completemos todos los pasos. Cada paso sigue lógicamente al otro. Pero
a menudo se nos olvida cumplir uno o dos de los pasos. A veces tenemos
la costumbre de creer que merecemos esos dones. Olvidamos que todo lo
que somos y todo lo que tenemos viene de Dios. Esto conduce a una dañina
autosuficiencia, al narcisismo o egocentrismo. Hay momentos en nuestras
vidas que no podemos reconocer los dones que poseemos. Necesitamos
darnos cuenta que Dios nos ha creado y somos, como el salmista escribe,
“creados maravillosamente.” Dios, en su creatividad, nos creo a cada uno
de nosotros con una gran cantidad de dones. A lo largo y en cada etapa de
nuestras vidas, Dios nos revela esos dones. Tenemos que ser conscientes y ver
como se revelan. Necesitamos dar gracias a Dios por los dones y debemos
utilizarlos para convertirnos en mejores personas y hacer de éste un mundo
mejor.
Paz,
P.D. Nos quedan solo 10 días, todavía tenemos que recaudar $15,000 para
alcanzar nuestra meta de $900,000. Por favor contribuyan.
Nuestra Misión:
“Arraigada en Cristo y tocada por Su amor y misericordia, la comunidad de San Juan Berchmans encuentra unidad en su diversidad, proclama por medio
de la palabra, Sacramento y servicio, que el Reino de Dios esta cerca y declara que todos son bienvenidos en este lugar.”

UN AÑO DE MISERICORDIA
VISITAR A LOS PRESOS
Jesús fue arrestado y encarcelado al
comienzo de su misericordiosa Pasión.
Entonces se acercaron, le echaron
mano y arrestaron a Jesús (Mateo
26:50). Nosotros visitamos a los presos,
y nos encontramos con Jesús. San
Pablo conoció el poder de Cristo por
medio de su propio encarcelamiento:
. . .todos. . . saben que estoy preso por
Cristo, y la mayoría de los hermanos
que confían en el Señor, con mi
prisión se han animado a anunciar el
mensaje sin temor (Filipenses 1:13–14).
Anuncios Parroquiales
EL CRISTO NEGRO DE ESQUIPULAS
Por favor únase a la comunidad de habla hispana de San Juan Berchmans
mientras celebran la fiesta solemne en honor al Cristo Negro de Esquipulas
en la misa de 11:30 am el domingo, 17 de enero. A continuación habrá una
recepción sencilla en el salón parroquial. El Cristo Negro de Esquipulas es
una imagen de Jesús Crucificado venerado por millones de fieles en América
Central que se encuentra en la Basílica de Esquipulas en la ciudad del mismo
nombre en Guatemala.
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
En honor del Día de fiesta del Dr. Martin Luther King, la escuela y la rectoría
estarán cerradas el lunes 18 de enero de 2016. Habrá Misa a las 7am ese día.
SJB HONORA A JENNIFER CORTEZ
COLECTA NAVIDEÑA/DE FIN DE AÑO
Necesitamos su ayuda. Con la ayuda de Dios (y la ayuda de muchos de ustedes!), hemos
recorrido un largo camino. Hemos eliminado más de medio millón de dólares de la
deuda de operación, y completamos más de seis millones de dólares de capital de tiempo
diferido y la restauración de seguridad vital. Después de que se pagaron los préstamos, y
los proyectos de construcción se finalizaron, tenemos menos de un millón de dólares de
la deuda de capital – la cual esperamos eliminar el 31 de enero de 2016. Si recaudamos
$430,000 estaremos libres de deuda por primera vez en décadas.
El Domingo, 10 de enero 2016, Jennifer Cortez fue reconocida con el
premio Christifideles por el Arzobispo Cupich en Holy Name Catedral.
Este premio se otorga a laicos, hombres y mujeres de la Arquidiócesis
por su dedicación a la Iglesia y sus ministerios.
¡Ahí es donde usted puede participar! Estamos actualmente en un programa de igualar.
Cada centavo que recaudemos desde hoy hasta el 31 de enero será igualado e irá en contra
de nuestra deuda. Le pido que considere su donación de fin de año (o año nuevo). Por
favor considere hacer una generosa donación para ayudarnos a estar libres de deudas. Si
usted da $25,000, $2,500, $250 o $25, será igualado y nos ayudará a alcanzar nuestra
meta. Para dar con tarjeta de crédito, por favor visite nuestro sitio de web en www.
stjohnberchmans.org.
¡Gracias por ayudarnos a alcanzar nuestra meta! Sepa que le doy gracias a Dios por usted.
DONACIÓN DE SUÉTERES EN SJB
¿Tiene suéteres, sudaderas o chamarras que aun se encuentran
en buenas condiciones que usted ya no usa? ¡Tráigalos a SJB!
Recogeremos la ropa de invierno para donarla a Caridades
Católicas. ¡En esta época del año mucho de los que no tienen
un hogar luchan para mantenerse cálidos durante estos
fríos meses de invierno, y ésta es una gran manera para
que ayudemos! Por favor traiga sus donaciones a la Misa en
la semana del 30 y 31 de enero. Las donaciones ocurrirán
durante el ofertorio en todas las Misas. Si usted no puede
asistir a Misa ese fin de semana le invitamos a dejar sus
donaciones en la oficina de la rectoría durante la semana.
Las horas de oficina de la rectoría son lunes-viernes de
8:30am-8:00pm. Si tiene alguna pregunta por favor, póngase
en contacto con la oficina de la parroquia.
¡Gracias, Jennifer, por todo lo que ha hecho por
SJB y felicitaciones por este gran honor!

We are down to the final weeks! Our Legacy Campaign will
officially end on Sunday, January 31st. We began this year with $1.8
million in debt. Because Father Wayne refuses to take “NO” for an

Year One of our campaign.

Raising $900,000 was a lofty goal – we knew that – but we also knew

make it happen. As of last this week, we have collected $885,000 –
leaving us with $15,000 more to go.

2016 Prayer for Christian Unity
¡Estamos hasta las últimas semanas! Nuestra Campaña de Legado
terminará oficialmente el domingo, 31 de enero. Comenzamos este
año con $1.8 millones en deuda. Debido a que el Padre Wayne se
niega a aceptar un “NO” por respuesta, que fue capaz de hablar con la
Arquidiócesis para permitirnos participar una vez más en el Programa
de Reducción de la Deuda - tal como lo hicimos en el primer año de
nuestra campaña.
God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may you
give to all the Christians, and especially to those entrusted
with leadership in your Church, the spirit of wisdom and
revelation. With the eyes of our hearts may we see the hope
to which you have called us: one body and one Spirit, one
Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who
is above and through all and in all. This we ask through Jesus
Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity
of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever
El recaudar $900.000 fue un gran objetivo – lo sabíamos – pero
también sabíamos que la gente de San Juan Berchmans se uniría para
que sucediera. Hasta el domingo pasado, hemos colectado $885.000
- dejándonos con $15.000 más para recaudar.
Amen.
En las últimas semanas, gran parte de este dinero ha venido de fuera
de nuestra parroquia – aunque varios feligreses se unieron a nosotros
en ambas formas, grandes y pequeñas. Ahora es el momento de
preguntarse a si mismo: “¿He ayudado? ¿Lo he hecho profundamente?
¿He dado todo lo que puedo dar?”
