Dear Holy Apostles Parish Family,
I hope you are surviving the height of cabin
fever season. It is good to see the Spring
Training season start.
We are working our way through our Lenten
season of SURRENDERING. It is a very difficult task and attitude, requiring a great deal
of faith and trust. Last weekend, when we
offered the Sacrament of Anointing of the
Sick. I noticed many people receiving this
sacrament. On March 16, the entire diocese
will have a Day of Reconciliation as we have
the past two years. It is a great opportunity
for people to go to confession anytime on
that day. We will be at: St. Mary’s, McHenry,
from 9 AM to noon; Christ the King, Wonder
Lake, noon-2 PM; St. Patrick, McHenry, 2 to
5 PM; and Holy Apostles, 5 to 8 PM. We will
have six priests here that night, so please
plan to take advantage of this opportunity.
Also on Wednesday, March 16 is the St.
Baldrick’s Community Shave at McHenry
West Campus High School. Please join the
team or sponsor someone you know.
All the homeless, the unemployed, the military, the addicted, the
grieving, the imprisoned, and the physically and emotionally ill.

During This Week We Remember:
Lorraine A. DiLeonardo
Week 3:
Trust in the mercy of God
God's mercy belongs to those who trust in him.
Our God is the God of second chances. Each
year Lent comes around, and we have yet
another chance to turn to his mercy, to grow
and produce
fruit in his
But it is a
leap of faith.
We have to
and fear,
and trust in God's mercy. That if we do the
right thing, God's kingdom on earth will be
realized and his mercy will be upon all our
lives. The 'right thing' is to repent – to have
the humility to recognize that we cannot succeed alone, to stop worrying about silly concerns and useless custom, and to focus on
what matters most in the work of building
the kingdom: people!

Christ during this special season of prayer, fasting and
almsgiving. For those who have not yet attended Spirit of

and extend them to an innocent child and their family.
The monies collected go to research to fight childhood
cancer. Your donation could be the one that finds a cure.
Join our team, or donate to one of the team members.
We all have a part to play in this battle against cancer.
You can also help this cause by purchasing a St. Baldrick’s

Your Gifts to SVdPS Feed Many Needs
When friends in need call the St. Vincent de Paul Society,
these individuals are in desperate need of assistance.
These callers often ask for help to pay for the basic necessities of living. One such call came in recently from a
mother of four who was stretching
her meager budget to provide everything her family needed. This middle-aged mother simply asked for
food to help her family eat that
week and three rosaries so that
they could pray the rosary together.
For this woman, having a rosary for each member of her
family was a necessity and, other than food, the only
thing she said that they needed. In this Year of Mercy,
she had heard God's call and answered Him with a focus
on family prayer. "A generous man will himself be
blessed, for he shares his food with the poor." Prov 22:9

Pope’s Prayer Intentions for March
Families in Difficulty: That families in need may receive
the necessary support and that children may grow up in
healthy and peaceful environments.
Persecuted Christians. That those Christians who, on
account of their faith, are discriminated against or are
being persecuted , may remain strong and faithful to the
Gospel, thanks to the incessant prayer of the Church.

Day of Reconciliation—March 16
Every time we sin, we hurt ourselves, other people and
God. The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also called
Penance or Confession) was given to us by Christ to help
us reconcile with Christ and his Church when we have
committed harm. Through the Sacrament, we
acknowledge our sins, express our sorrow in a meaningful way, receive the forgiveness of Christ and his
Church, make reparation for what we have done and
resolve to do better in the future.
The rite for Reconciliation involves four parts:
Contrition: a sincere sorrow for having offended God and
the most important act of the penitent. There can be no
forgiveness of sin if we do not have sorrow and a firm
resolve not to repeat our sin.
Confession: confronting our sins in a profound way to
God by speaking about them -aloud- to the priest.
Penance: an important part of our healing is the
"penance" the priest imposes in reparation for our sins.
Absolution: the priest speaks the words by which "God,
the Father of Mercies" reconciles a sinner to Himself
through the merits of the Cross.
Our McHenry area parishes will offer a full day of
Reconciliation on Wednesday, March 16, as follows:
St. Mary, McHenry:
9 AM to 12 noon
Christ the King, Wonder Lake: 12 to 2 PM
St. Patrick, McHenry:
2 to 5 PM
Holy Apostles:
6 to 8 PM
Come, take advantage of this opportunity to prepare
your heart for the Risen Christ.
Pray for Military Personnel

family of our parish members especially Adam Krey,

Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their
families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our
time of need and give us peace. We ask this in

El Culto a la Santa Muerte
Declaraciones de los obispos de México:
Quienes caen en este tipo de culto son personas que se
encuentran desesperadas, pero no por una crisis económica, sino por una crisis de fe. Los católicos que caen en
este culto deben saber que es un pecado grave: idolatría.
Y advierten a los seguidores de la santa muerte que
“esto no es un juego, ni la muerte es una deidad divina,
detrás de ese culto hay algo diabólico y la gente debe
tener mucho cuidado. Detrás de esto está el reino del
maligno y la gente puede ser víctima de una posesión
La Iglesia católica alerta sobre el peligro que representa
adorar a la “santa muerte”, dado que esto trae como
consecuencia pérdidas de algún familiar o desgracias en
los hogares.
No es una devoción católica
Conviene señalar que los católicos que rinden culto a la
Santa Muerte y a sus imágenes, están haciendo un pecado gravísimo, pues les están atribuyendo poderes que
no tienen ni tendrán jamás. Por otra parte, en vez de poner la propia confianza en Dios, la ponen en una supuesta
entidad (o ser) espiritual que, sencillamente, no existe.
En realidad, la Santa Muerte no es una persona. Es sólo
un fenómeno natural como el nacer o el crecer (el inicio y
el desarrollo de la vida), aunque nunca se habla del Santo Nacimiento o Santo Crecimiento.
Sólo a Dios se le da el culto
Bien conocido es el pasaje del Evangelio en el cual un
doctor de la Ley le pregunta a Jesús sobre cuál es el principal mandamiento de la Ley y la respuesta: “Amarás a tu
Dios con todo tu corazón, con toda tu alma y con toda tu
mente. Este es el mayor y primer mandamiento”.(Mateo
22, 36-38).
Ya en el Antiguo Testamento, encontramos el mandato
de Dios: “Yo, el Señor, soy tu Dios, que te ha sacado del
país de Egipto, de la casa de la servidumbre. No habrá
para ti otros dioses delante de mí” . (Ex. 20, 2)
Amar a Dios como al Ser supremo es una virtud. Podemos
definir la virtud de la religión como el hábito de amar a
Dios por encima de todo. Se exterioriza por medio de los
actos de culto y por el cumplimiento de los Mandamientos.
El culto: son las acciones a través de las cuales el hombre expresa su relación de amor y respeto a Dios.
Existen diferentes tipos de culto:
Interno: culto que se rinde a Dios en la conciencia, en el
corazón, en la inteligencia y la voluntad. Es el fundamento de la virtud. (Mateo 15, 8) Como pueden ser la
devoción, es decir, la disponibilidad y la generosidad ante
lo referente al servicio a Dios, y la oración.
Externo: manifestaciones externas en actos visibles, de
la relación que se vive con Dios.
Hay diferentes categorías de culto:
Adoración: culto interno y externo que se tributa a Dios y
que en sentido estricto solo se debe a Él, porque como
criaturas sólo existimos por Él. Se llama de “latría”.
