Francis Cardinal George (1937-2015)
Dear Friends,
cares for his flock. Cardinal George cared for this flock, for sure.
Happy Easter!
Another visit from the Cardinal was the second Sunday of Advent
in 2011. Our former Director of Music, Jacob Bancks, a convert to
Catholicism himself, and a great admirer of Cardinal George, wrote a
musical setting for a Mass. The Cardinal, ever the good shepherd, agreed
to come for its premier. He not only celebrated the Mass, he stayed for
a reception honoring Jake. As usual, the Cardinal was one of the last to
leave the reception. He wanted to be sure that each person who wanted
to greet him and to pose for a photograph with him would have the
opportunity to do so. Even though his physical heath caused him pain,
he didn’t let on. He stayed, posing for picture after picture. And in his
humble way, he directed all the attention to Jake.
Fifteen days after the celebration of the
resurrection of our Lord, Francis Cardinal George
slipped away. After valiantly serving this Archdiocese
for over seventeen years, after more than fifty years
of priesthood, after participating in the election of
two popes, after suffering a lifelong illness and after
more recent battles with cancer, our longtime shepherd went home
to the Good Shepherd. This week we laid him to rest. I considered
Cardinal George a pastor and a model of priestly life. He shepherded the
Archdiocese of Chicago for more than two thirds of the time that I have
been a priest here. He loved the Church. He loved our Lord and he loved
Our Lady, and he loved the people of this Archdiocese.
I cannot even count the number of times our pilgrimage groups have
had the opportunity to be with Cardinal George. Cardinal George always
made time for young people. We met him for World Youth Day in cities
around the globe. Without fail, he would stay for questions and photos
every time. He challenged the young people to stay close to the Lord and
close to the Church. He told them that he valued them and that they were
important in the life of the Church.
I guess I am most grateful for Cardinal George’s wisdom and his
directness. I remember that October day in 2005 when I quite literally
bumped into the Cardinal at a priest meeting. I had been a full-time
associate administrator of Catholic Charities and had truly been enjoying
that assignment. After nearly bumping into each other the Cardinal said,
“I want you to be a pastor.” I told him that I was just over three years into
my term and was really enjoying my ministry. The Cardinal responded,
“Then do both!” and turned and walked away. Days later, I received the
parish profile of Saint John Berchmans, and within weeks received my
assignment here.
Some of my best pilgrimage memories of Cardinal George come
from the trip in 2008 when more than 200 people from the Archdiocese
of Chicago joined the Cardinal on the first Archdiocesan pilgrimage
to Lourdes. The Cardinal traveled with, stayed with and ate with the
pilgrims. He accepted no preferential treatment. He even took time to
sit in a confessional — without air-conditioning — for hours hearing the
confessions of the pilgrims who joined him. Pope Francis has said that
a good shepherd smells like his sheep. In his willingness to walk with,
eat with and sweat with his sheep on that pilgrimage in 2008, Cardinal
George showed me and so many other what kind of shepherd he really
was. He imitated the Good Shepherd, because he believed what Saint John
says in today’s second reading: “See what love the Father has bestowed on
us… We shall see him as he is!”
In the nine years that I have been your pastor, Cardinal George
visited this parish twice. In February of 2009, he came for the blessing
and dedication of the elevator and accessibility project. He supported the
project from its inception. Shortly after I arrived, I had a funeral here. A
relative of the deceased arrived, without knowing that the church wasn’t
accessible to a person in a motorized wheelchair. After pulling up to the
church, the relative saw the steps and sent someone to ask where the
accessible entrance was. I told the relative that there really was none.
The relative drove off, turned away from mourning and praying with her
family. I told Cardinal George that story. He pledged to help me get
the elevator installed. He arranged for loans from the Archdiocese to be
made and followed the progress intently. As the work commenced, the
Cardinal encouraged me to not only install an elevator, but to make the
entire sanctuary accessible, so that people of all abilities would be able
to answer the call to liturgical ministry in this church. A good shepherd
May Cardinal George rest in peace; may his good deeds go with him.
Peace,
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.

(JULY 2014 - JUNE 2015)
Parish Announcements
SEAL
The Rite of Confirmation contains these
essential words for the conferral of the
sacrament: “Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy
Spirit.” The exact meaning of these words may elude us.What does it
mean to be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit? To seal something
can often mean to enclose it, but clearly that is not the meaning of
Confirmation. Another meaning is to certify or to guarantee. When
something is sealed or has a seal affixed to it, we know that it is real
and genuine. As we try to follow Jesus and live his way of discipleship,
we may be uncertain. And we should be, especially if we are relying
on ourselves and our own efforts. In fact, when we are his confirmed
disciples on whom the seal of the Holy Spirit has been set, we can be
absolutely certain.We live and walk, not on our own, but by the grace
and power of the Holy Spirit.
JOIN US AS WE CELEBRATE THE SACRAMENTS
Many of the students in both our school and Religious Education program
are in the final stages of preparing to receive Sacraments in the first week
of May. First Communions will be celebrated at the 5pm Mass on Saturday,
May 2nd and the 9:45am, 11:30am & 6:30pm Masses on Sunday, May 3rd.
Confirmation will be celebrated at 7pm on Wednesday, May 6th. Please
keep these students in your prayers during these final weeks and consider
joining us at one or more of the Masses to share their Sacramental joy!
SUMMER ON THE SQUARE
Save the Date! Summer on the Square will be held on Saturday, June
13th. We will begin with an outdoor Mass at 4pm, and the fun will
continue throughout the evening with foods from around the world,
various musical performances on the Church steps, and games and
activities for the kids!
World Day of Prayer for
Vocations
Raffle tickets will be on sale soon! If you can help with the raffle sale
or in anyway at Summer on the Square, sign-up sheets are available in
the vestibule or you can contact Jennifer in the rectory office. It will
take the entire community to make this event a success. Please consider
volunteering your time or purchasing a raffle ticket.
Today the Church throughout the world prays for vocations. Will you
make a special effort to ask the Lord for more vocations to priesthood
and religious life?
•Pray for the priests who have ministered to you throughout your life,
both living and dead.
•Keep our parish priests in your prayers throughout the week.
•Encourage your children, grandchildren, or other young people to
consider a vocation as a priest or religious brother or sister.
•Pray a rosary for more young men and women in our diocese to
respond to God’s call.
MASS INTENTIONS
All St. John Berchmans parishioners and friends are invited to request
Mass intentions for those who have died, for loved ones on their birthdays
or anniversaries, or for any other occasion or concern. As the Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass is the most powerful prayer of the Church,
this is a very effective way to honor the living or pray for the dead.
“At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were
troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd.Then he said to his disciples:
‘The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest.’” (Mt 9:37-38)
The suggested donation for these Masses is $10 per Mass. We will be
limiting the number of intentions to two per Mass, so in order to ensure
availability of your requested day and time, please submit this request to
the rectory office as soon as possible. Intentions will be added to the
calendar on a first-come basis. Mass intentions are now be accepted for
all Masses through December 2016.

Fourth Sunday of Easter
April 26, 2015
Wayne’s World
Francis Cardinal George (1937-2015)
Queridos Amigos,
capacidades pudieran responder a la llamada al ministerio litúrgico en esta
iglesia. Un buen pastor cuida de su rebaño. No hay dudas, de que el Cardenal
George cuidó de este rebaño.
¡Felices Pascuas!
Quince días después de la celebración de la
resurrección de nuestro Señor, falleció el Cardenal
Francis George. Después de servir valerosamente
esta Arquidiócesis por más de diecisiete años, después
de más de cincuenta años de sacerdocio, después de
participar en la elección de dos papas, después de sufrir
una enfermedad durante toda su vida y después de las batallas más recientes
con el cáncer, nuestro pastor de toda la vida se fue a casa al Buen Pastor. Esta
semana lo pusimos a descansar. Consideré al Cardenal George un pastor y un
modelo de la vida sacerdotal. Él guió a la Arquidiócesis de Chicago durante
más de dos tercios del tiempo que he sido sacerdote aquí. Él amó a la Iglesia,
a nuestro Señor a la Virgen y a la gente de esta Arquidiócesis.
Otra visita del Cardenal fue el segundo domingo de Adviento en 2011.
Nuestro anterior Director de Música, Jacob Bancks, convertido al catolicismo,
y un gran admirador del Cardenal George, escribió un arreglo musical para
una Misa. El Cardenal, siempre como buen pastor, aceptó venir para su
estreno. Él no sólo celebró la Misa, sino que se quedó para una recepción
en honor a Jake. Como de costumbre, el Cardenal era uno de los últimos
en irse de la recepción. Quería asegurarse de que cada persona que deseaba
saludarlo y posar para una fotografía con él tuviera la oportunidad de hacerlo.
A pesar de que su salud física le causaba dolor, no lo demostraba. Se quedó,
posando para un sinnúmero de fotos. Y en su humilde manera, el dirigió toda
la atención a Jake.
Ni siquiera puedo contar el número de veces que nuestros grupos de
peregrinos tuvieron la oportunidad de estar con el Cardenal George. El
Cardenal George siempre hizo tiempo para los jóvenes. Nos reunimos con
él para el Día Mundial de la Juventud en ciudades alrededor del mundo. Sin
lugar a dudas, cada vez él permanecía para las preguntas y fotos. Él desafió a
los jóvenes a permanecer cerca del Señor y cerca de la Iglesia. Les dijo que los
valoraba y que eran importantes en la vida de la Iglesia.
Admito que estoy muy agradecido por la sabiduría y franqueza del
Cardenal George. Recuerdo aquel día de octubre en 2005, cuando yo
literalmente me topé con él en una reunión de sacerdotes. Yo ejercía el
puesto de administrador asociado de tiempo completo en Caridades Católicas
y verdaderamente había estado disfrutando de esa asignación. Después de casi
topar el uno con el otro, el Cardenal me dijo, “Yo quisiera que usted fuera
un pastor.” Yo le dije que solo tenía un poco más de tres años de mi término
y estaba disfrutando de mi ministerio. El cardenal respondió: “¡Entonces,
haga ambos!”, y dio la media vuelta y se alejó. Días más tarde, recibí el perfil
de la parroquia de San Juan Berchmans, y en cuestión de semanas recibí mi
asignación aquí.
Algunos de mis mejores recuerdos del peregrinaje del Cardenal George
son del viaje en 2008, cuando más de 200 personas de la Arquidiócesis de
Chicago se unieron al Cardenal en la primera peregrinación arquidiocesana a
Lourdes. El Cardenal viajó, se quedó y comió con los peregrinos. Él no aceptó
ningún tratamiento preferencial. Incluso tomó el tiempo para sentarse en un
confesionario sin aire acondicionado durante horas oyendo las confesiones
de los peregrinos que le acompañaban. El Papa Francisco ha dicho que un
buen pastor huele como sus ovejas. En su buena voluntad de caminar, comer
y sudar con sus ovejas en esa peregrinación en 2008, el Cardenal George me
demostró, y a los demás que clase de pastor realmente era. Él imitó al Buen
Pastor, porque creía lo que San Juan dice en la segunda lectura de hoy: “¡Miren
cuanto amor nos ha dado el Padre ... lo veremos tal cual es!”
En los nueve años que he sido su pastor, el Cardenal George visitó esta
parroquia dos veces. En febrero de 2009 vino para la bendición y dedicación
del proyecto del elevador y accesibilidad. Él apoyó el proyecto desde su
inicio. Poco después de mi llegada, tuve un funeral aquí. Un pariente del
difunto llegó, sin saber que la iglesia no era accesible a una persona en una
silla de ruedas motorizada. Después de detenerse en la iglesia, el pariente vio
las escaleras y envió a alguien para que preguntara dónde estaba la entrada
accesible. Le dije al pariente que en realidad no había ninguna. El pariente
se marchó, sin participar en la Misa y sin rezar con su familia. Le comenté
al Cardenal George esa historia. Se comprometió a ayudarme a conseguir
la instalación del elevador. El arregló que los préstamos de la Arquidiócesis
se hicieran y siguió atentamente el progreso. A medida que el trabajo
comenzaba, el Cardenal me animó a que no solo se instalara un elevador, pero
a que se hiciera todo el santuario accesible, de modo que la gente de todas las
En paz descanse el Cardenal George; que sus buenas obras lo acompañen.
Paz,
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.”

Fourth Sunday of Easter
EL AÑO DE LOS SACRAMENTOS
La Visión del Papa Francisco Sobre la Sancación y la Comunión
(JULIO 2014 - JUNIO 2015)
SELLAR
Anuncios Parroquiales
El rito de la Confirmación contiene estas palabras
esenciales para la administración del sacramento:
“Recibe por esta señal el don del Espíritu Santo”.
Es ser sellados con el don del Espíritu Santo. El
significado exacto de estas palabras puede parecernos poco claro. ¿Qué
quiere decir ser sellados con el don del Espíritu Santo? Sellar algo con
frecuencia quiere decir encerrarlo, pero claramente no es este el significado
de la Confirmación. Otro significado es certificar o garantizar. Cuando algo
está sellado o se le aplica un sello, sabemos que es real y genuino. Mientras
intentamos seguir a Jesús y vivir su camino de discipulado, podemos
sentirnos inseguros. Y deberíamos estarlo, especialmente si dependemos
de nosotros mismos y de nuestros esfuerzos. De hecho, cuando somos sus
discípulos confirmados sobre quienes se ha impreso el sello del Espíritu
Santo, podemos sentirnos absolutamente seguros.Vivimos y caminamos, no
por nosotros mismos, sino por la gracia y el poder del Espíritu Santo.
ACOMPÁÑENOS A CELEBRAR LOS SACRAMENTOS
Muchos de los estudiantes en nuestra escuela y del Programa de Educación
Religiosa están en las etapas finales de preparación para recibir los
Sacramentos en la primera semana de mayo. Las Primeras Comuniones se
celebrarán durante las Misas el sábado, 2 de mayo a las 5pm y el domingo 3
de mayo a las 9:45am, 11:30am y 6:30pm. La Confirmación se celebrará el
miércoles, 6 de mayo a las 7pm. ¡Por favor mantenga a estos estudiantes en
sus oraciones durante estas últimas semanas y considere unirse a nosotros en
una o más de las Misas para compartir su alegría Sacramental!
VERANO EN LA CUADRA
¡Reserve la fecha! El Verano en la Cuadra se llevará a cabo el sábado, 13 de
junio. Comenzaremos con una misa al aire libre a las 4pm, y la diversión
continuará durante toda la noche con alimentos de todo el mundo, diversas
actuaciones musicales en las escaleras de la Iglesia, y ¡juegos y actividades
para los niños!
Día Mundial de Oración por las
Vocaciones
¡Los boletos de la rifa están a la venta! Si usted puede ayudar con la venta de
la rifa o cualquier otra forma en el evento del Verano en la Cuadra, las hojas
de inscripción están disponibles en el vestíbulo o puede ponerse en contacto
con Jennifer en la oficina de la rectoría. Es necesario que toda la comunidad
participe para que este evento sea un éxito. Por favor, considere donar su
tiempo o la compra de un boleto para la rifa.
Hoy la Iglesia universal reza por las vocaciones. ¿Hará usted un esfuerzo
especial para pedir al Señor por más vocaciones al sacerdocio y a la vida
religiosa?
• Rece por los sacerdotes que le han ministrado a lo largo de su vida,
tanto por los vivos como por los muertos.
• Mantenga a nuestros párrocos en sus oraciones durante toda la semana.
• Anime a sus hijos, nietos u otros jóvenes que consideren una vocación
como sacerdote, hermano o hermana religiosa.
• Rece un rosario para que más hombres y mujeres jóvenes de nuestra
diócesis respondan al llamado de Dios.
INTENCIONES DE LA MISA
Se invita a todos los feligreses y amigos de San Juan Berchmans que soliciten
las intenciones de Misa para sus difuntos, seres queridos en sus cumpleaños o
aniversarios, o para cualquier otra ocasión o preocupación. Como el Santo
Sacrificio de la Misa es la oración más poderosa de la Iglesia, esta
es una forma muy efectiva para honrar a los vivos y rezar por los muertos.
“Al ver a la multitud, su corazón se compadece de ella, porque estaban preocupados y
abatidos como ovejas que no tienen pastor. Entonces dijo a sus discípulos:“La cosecha
es abundante, pero pocos son los obreros; Pídanle, por tanto, al Señor de la cosecha
que envié obreros a su campo “(Mt 9, 37-38)
La donación sugerida de estas Misas es de $ 10 por Misa. Limitaremos el
número de intenciones a dos por Misa, así que para asegurar la disponibilidad
de su día y hora solicitada, por favor, someta la solicitud a la oficina parroquial
tan pronto como sea posible. Las intenciones se agregarán al calendario en
orden de su llegada.Ya son aceptadas las intenciones para todas las Misas hasta
diciembre del 2016.
