TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
The first "presbyters" were advisers to the bishops rather than
what we would call "priests," yet by the year 1000 our presentday understanding of the ordained priesthood is clearly in
place. The Germanic influence was strong in those days,
reflected in a series of questions posed to the candidate about
his intentions.
The priest's role in the celebration of Mass had by then come to
the fore, as the ritual notes that Mass vestments must be worn,
the hands of the priest must be anointed with chrism, and a
chalice with wine and water and a paten with a host must be
given. Up to then, the ordination rite had stressed the presbyter
as a collaborator with the bishop and a member of the order of
presbyters. Then, in a not-so-subtle shift, the presbyter came to
be seen as a "priest" designated to celebrate the Mass and, as
the prayer suggests, to touch the chalice. By these days,
remember, the cup had long vanished from Communion for the
laity. A thousand years ago, today's patterns were already in
place. The priest no longer saw himself as a member of a
council of elders, a presbytery, and in some dioceses he had
little influence over the bishop. Instead, he was either a pastor,
with relationship to the eucharistic community in the parish, or
he was a priest monk, offering Mass for the salvation of the
departed or the intentions of the living.

Year of Mercy
Reflecting on God’s Word
"The newness of the Gospel lies in the giving of oneself,
giving the heart, to those who actually dislike us, who harm us,
to our enemies. The Gospel is a new message that is difficult to
carry forward. In a word, it means to go behind Jesus. Follow
him. Imitate him . . . Jesus' response to the Father is: 'I shall do
your will'. And indeed, in the Mount of Olives he says to the
Father: 'Thy will be done'. And thus he gives his life, not for
his friends but for his enemies!"
—Pope Francis
15th Sunday of Ordinary Time-C-July 10, 2016
When Jesus told the parable of the good Samaritan, he asked
his questioner, “Which of these three, in your opinion, was
neighbor to the man who fell in with robbers?” The answer
came, “The one who treated him with compassion” (The New
American Bible translation). Jesus told him (and us) “Then go
and do the same.”
—————————————————————————
Mercy has a face. Some hospitals in our region have a corps
of volunteers called Good Samaritans. They do all manner of
kindness so that the sick can get the care, the treatment they
need. Mercy has the face of real live people, those who (1)
love God, (2) love self, and (3) love the other by being the
neighbor. We hear Moses, in the fifth book (Deuteronomy) for
God’s Chosen People, say to them – and now to us today: this
command to love like God is not too mysterious or remote.
 Who needs my acts of love today – perhaps even beyond
my close circle of family and friends?
 Who needs a ride to church, to doctor, to grocery that I
can give?
 How can I manifest the mystery of mercy by being a face
of mercy?
———————————————————————Could anyone object to Jesus' supreme lesson in mercy, the
parable of the Good Samaritan? Jesus' devoutly religious
audience certainly did! Scant sympathy for anyone foolish
enough to travel crime-ridden "Jericho Highway" alone. Much
sympathy for priest and Levite, hurrying to assigned temple
ministry, unwilling to risk ritual impurity through hands-on
mercy. No sympathy for Jesus' scandalous hero. Samaritans
were religious apostates and political enemies. Jesus
challenges them--and us--to seek God's presence not only in
liturgical beauty but in a fellow traveler's self-inflicted
misfortunes. See God's presence even in someone outside the
law, whose hands-on mercy springs not from religious
obligation but from the heart's instinctive goodness. Since
Jesus became our "Good Samaritan" despite our foolishness
and sins, who are we to ration our mercy? "Who is my
neighbor?" (Luke 10:29). The next person we see who needs
hands-on mercy! No conditions, no limits, no exceptions.
Especially in this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Jesus commands,
"Go and do likewise" (10:37).
--Peter Scagnelli,
Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.
Jesus mandates compassion. He can mandate compassion
because biblical compassion is not a feeling or emotion (one
cannot mandate emotions, they just spontaneously happen).
Notice that it is irrelevant to Jesus whether someone feels guilty
or not (guilt is always an emotion or feeling). But biblical
compassion is a moral decision. Guilt may indeed lead to
behavioral change, but not always. Compassion by Biblical
definition is always an intentional act or behavior.
The sin about which this parable speaks is indifference. The
opposite of compassion is apathy. Therefore Jesus often uses
the image of awareness as characteristic of true love. The priest
and temple official who passed by the wounded man did
nothing to harm him; but they did nothing to help him either.
So we often pray: “I have sinned by what I have done and by
what I have failed to do.” Here’s a possible description of
Biblical compassion: ‘Compassion is my personal conviction
that a hurting or needy person (or group of people) calls upon
me for concrete, effective help and that I obligate myself to
extend that help to the best of my ability—even at some
personal sacrifice on my part.”
Who is the neighbor to the wounded man? The one who
showed compassion. The point of the parable is unambiguous:
Go and do the same.

Eagle Scout Project
Dear Family, Friends and Scouters;
My name is Sean Luner, I am a Life Scout and I will be going to a summer scout camp for two
weeks as a leader. I am currently working on the rank of Eagle Scout. Eagle is the final and highest rank in
the Boy Scouting program and the most difficult to achieve. To obtain this rank, I need to organize and carry
out a project that will benefit the community. This will test all of the skills I have learned in scouting
including leadership, organization and service. For my project, I will be refurbishing cellar doors, replacing
the inner wooden door, painting the stairs and laying concrete on the foundation of the cellar doors that will
take place at St. Pius X Parish. This project will preserve and protect the outer entrance of St. Pius X Parish
office.
An Eagle project is a test of the Scouts skills that he has acquired throughout the years of scouting. An Eagle project needs
to be funded completely by the Scout. In order for my project to succeed, the funding required is around $375.00. This not only
includes cost of materials but the cost of permits and tools that may be needed. I humbly ask for donations at this time. I have no
guideline to how much, only give what you can. Any surplus money left from this project will benefit another Eagle project. I
personally will not keep any of the surplus donated money.
My goal is to have the donations collected no later than August 1, 2016. Thank you for your time, donations and past
support. Please contact me with any questions regarding this request. Please send donations and make checks payable to Sean Luner,
549 N. Kramer Ave Lombard, IL 60148 (630-276-8021).

serán escritas en las jambas de las puertas, serán atadas a la
muñeca y transmitidas de generación en generación. Pero el
levita completa su respuesta con lo que recoge el Levítico en el
capítulo 19: "Y al prójimo como a ti mismo". El binomio Diosprójimo está presente en el Pentateuco. Haciendo esto el letrado
tendrá vida. Pero él quiere saber quién es su prójimo. Es entonces
cuando Jesús relata la historia más sobrecogedora de su mensaje,
la historia que resume todo su mensaje. El samaritano se deja
mover por la compasión, hoy diríamos que es solidario con la
desgracia de su próximo, aquél pobre hombre que agoniza en la
cuneta del camino. Pone en práctica lo que significa
"misericordia quiero y no sacrificios", para él es más importante
aquel "próximo", que el cumplimiento cultual, que es la opción
tomada por el sacerdote y el levita. Estamos en el “Año de la
misericordia”. Hoy se traduce como perdón y solidaridad. Ser
solidario es sentir que "lo que a ti te pasa, a mí me importa", que
yo me uno a tu sufrimiento y lo asumo como mío, que soy capaz
de ponerme en tu lugar y ayudarte a salir del pozo en que te
encuentras. Ahora pregúntate tú mismo, ¿eres solidario, o pasas
de largo ante el sufrimiento de tu hermano? ¿Dónde está tu
hermano, es la pregunta del Génesis que resuena en nuestros
oídos?
3. - La Iglesia debe ser posada. Amar es una decisión
más que un sentimiento. Amar es dedicación y entrega. Amar
es un verbo que invita a la acción. El buen samaritano se acerca
a aquél hombre herido -lo primero que hay que hacer es acercarse
al hermano sufriente-, le vendó las heridas --hizo lo que sabía y
lo que podía-- y después lo llevó a la posada para que lo
atendieran --lo puso en manos de aquellas personas que podían
ayudarlo mejor que él para que se repusiera totalmente-- y
además de hacerse cargo de los gastos, prometió volver para
visitarlo. La posada es el símbolo de aquellos organismos que
dan, o deben dar cobijo a los menesterosos. La Iglesia debe ser
esa posada, esa casa acogedora, en donde es posible rehabilitarse
como persona. Nuestra comunidad parroquial debe ser esa posada
abierta a todos, donde es posible encontrar la medicina material o
espiritual que el enfermo necesita. Y tuvo que ser un samaritano,
alguien peor que un extranjero, el que practicara con él la
misericordia. Recuerdo ahora la hermosura del significado de
esta palabra: "poner el corazón en la miseria". El samaritano puso
su corazón en la miseria y pobreza de aquél hombre.
4.- "Haz tú lo mismo”. ¿Quién se portó como prójimo
de aquel pobre hombre? Es Jesús el que pregunta al letrado:
¿quién se portó como prójimo de aquel pobre hombre?, ¿quién
fue el que estuvo próximo a él? Los discípulos y el letrado
comprendieron muy bien cuál era la respuesta. Jesús mismo nos
dio ejemplo de "proximidad", cuando se hizo uno de nosotros, se
rebajó hasta la muerte y una muerte de cruz. El sí que se portó
como prójimo de nosotros. Pero ahora te dice a ti: "Haz tú lo
mismo". Es el mejor método para conseguir tu objetivo: heredar
la vida eterna. Todo lo demás es secundario, sólo importa el
amor. Ama, es decir, acepta al otro, valora al otro, dale afecto y
ternura, compréndele y ayúdale.
PRACTICAR LA MISERICORDIA CON EL PRÓJIMO
1.- Todos buscamos la vida, todos queremos vivir
para siempre. Todos deseamos vivir para siempre. ¿Qué he de
hacer para heredar la vida eterna?, le pregunta el letrado. En
nuestra época se diseñan multitud de estrategias y procedimientos
para adquirir unos objetivos determinados. Así funcionan las
empresas, lo fundamental es la productividad, la consecución de
los fines propuestos. Si esto ocurre con las cosas de este mundo,
¿por qué no nos preocupamos de lo que va a ocurrir con nosotros
para toda la eternidad? En la cultura postmoderna lo que importa
es el ahora, lo inmediato, lo inmanente, carecen de valor los
planteamientos a largo plazo, pero esto no elimina la pregunta
fundamental de todo hombre/mujer: ¿Hacia dónde voy, que va a
ser de mí después de esta vida? Al letrado del evangelio sí le
preocupaba la cuestión del más allá, por eso se dirige al
"Maestro". El hombre de hoy tarde o temprano se encuentra
también con este interrogante.
2. - Misericordia es solidaridad. Jesús le devuelve la
pregunta al letrado: ¿qué está escrito en la Ley? La respuesta
está en la "Shemá", el alma de la fe del pueblo, manifestada en el
capítulo 6 del Deuteronomio: "Escucha, Israel: el Señor nuestro
Dios es solamente uno. Amarás al Señor tu Dios con todo tu

in the next few days. It is very important that these pledges be
paid so that our parish will reach our goal. Once we have
reached goal in paid pledges, 65% of the additional funds
received will be returned to the parish for our use.
As we celebrate this Jubilee Year of Mercy, come experience
the mercy of God during an hour of prayer at
Immaculate Conception Church,
Pilgrimage Church of Eastern DuPage County,
held on the third Tuesday of every month of our jubilee year.
In the month of July we will be praying for our Youth.
PARISH GOAL: $64,489
AMOUNT PLEDGED: $55,789
Obtaining a Plenary Indulgence during the Year of Mercy
A plenary indulgence frees a person from all of the temporal
punishment due to sins and may be gained only once on any
one day. Indulgences are only applicable to oneself and to the
dead.
How can one obtain a plenary indulgence
during the Year of Mercy?
One obtains this indulgence by:
· having the intention of acquiring the indulgence, going
to confession (before or after the visit), receiving Holy
Communion, making a profession of faith, praying for
the Holy Father and for the intentions that he bears in
his heart for the good of the Church and of the entire
world, while doing any of the following:
· The faithful by visiting one of the Diocesan Pilgrimage
churches
· The sick and people who are elderly and alone by
receiving Holy Communion or attending Holy Mass
and community prayer (even through the various means
of communication)
· The faithful by personally performing one or more of
the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy
· The faithful by remembering the deceased at Holy
Mass and praying that they be freed from every
remnant of fault and thus be embraced by God in the
blessedness of life eternal.
