A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR
Dear Holy Apostles Parish Family,
I hope you all have a pleasant Memorial Day
weekend!
Congratulations to Fr. Sherry on his 50th
Anniversary as a priest! As always, he does not
look old enough to be a priest that long, but he
is. Holy Apostles is blessed that he has spent
almost half of his priesthood here. I remember
meeting him in the winter of 1982, in Aurora,
when he was Vocations Director. He then moved
that summer to Washington DC, to become
Executive Director of the Bishops Committee on
Vocations, until he came here to start Holy
Apostles in 1989.
I was ordained and stationed in Algonquin in
1989. I remember saying my first Mass in
Rockford and Fr. Sherry was right next to me
holding my hand during the Lord’s Prayer. I also
remember doing a few Saturday night Masses in
Tonyan Cathedral to help him and being invited
to his 50th birthday party. The parish brought his
mom in for a surprise.
Fifty years is a wonderful milestone! I hope you
all enjoy celebrating with Fr. Sherry this weekend. I know he is excited to be with you and of
course, have a few chocolate-covered donuts
from Riverside Bakery. I have come to realize
this to be his favorite food in the world.
Have a Blessed Weekend!
Fr. Paul
Please make your
pledge to the 2016

Solemnidad del Cuerpo y Sangre de Jesús
Mi carne es verdadera comida, y mi Sangre verdadera
bebida; el que come mi Carne, y bebe mi Sangre,
permanece en mí, y Yo en él.” Jn 6, 56-57)
La Solemnidad del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo, Tiene
como finalidad proclamar la fe en la presencia real de
Jesucristo en la Eucaristía. Presencia que es adorada
en las exposiciones solemnes como en las procesiones que se realizan en torno a esta fecha, convirtiéndose así en verdaderos momentos de espiritualidad, y
piedad popular. Pero ¿qué significa para nosotros el
celebrar la fiesta del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Jesucristo?
Celebrar la fiesta del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo significa honrar a Jesús como nuestro Dios y Salvador y
recordar que ha sido gracias a su Encarnación, y principalmente a su Pasión y Muerte, que nosotros somos
parte de la Nueva Alianza, sellada con su sangre. Celebrar la fiesta del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo significa
recordar que todos formamos parte del Cuerpo de
Cristo y que tenemos la responsabilidad de cuidar de
nuestros hermanos y hermanas en la fe y de servirlos
de acuerdo a nuestros dones y capacidades.
En la celebración eucaristía en la que se celebra esta
fiesta, se proclama el evangelio de Lc 9,11b-17. En él
las palabras de Jesucristo nos dan algunas claves para seguir profundizando en el significado que para nosotros hoy tiene el Corpus Christi que nos interpela y
nos mueve a no quedarnos en una piedad ajena a la
realidad. Dice la cita bíblica que:
“En aquel tiempo, Jesús se puso a hablar a una multitud acerca del Reino de Dios y curó a los que lo necesitaban. Caía la tarde, y los Doce se le acercaron a
decirle:
- Despide a la gente para que vayan a las aldeas cercanas comida y alojamiento, porque aquí estamos en
descampado.» Él les contestó: - Denles ustedes de
comer.» Ellos replicaron: - «No tenemos más que cinco
panes y dos peces… ¿qué es esto para tanta gente?»
Porque eran unos cinco mil hombres. Jesús dijo entonces a sus discípulos:
- «Díganles que se reúnan en grupos de cincuenta.»
Así lo hicieron. Él, tomando los cinco panes y los dos
peces, alzó la mirada al cielo, pronunció la bendición
sobre ellos, los partió y se los dio a los discípulos para
que se los sirvieran a la gente. Todos comieron se saciaron y recogieron las sobras llenando doce canastos.
Veladoras en la Capilla de Adoración
Si usted desea que una de las veladoras que están
en la Capilla de Adoración al Santísimo sea encendida
por alguna intención personal, puede pasar a la oficina de la Iglesia para solicitarla. Dura 14 días encendidas y el costo $15 dólares por veladora. En esta ocasionan son encendidas por las intenciones de Kevin
Mayores del día 22 de Mayo al 4 de junio.
