5 St. Pius X RCIA Kevin Hernandez is a Candidate in the St. Pius X RCIA Program. Kevin was baptized at St. Simeon Catholic Church in Bellwood. He needs to complete his Sacraments of Initiation: Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Kevin will join some of the other members of RCIA at the Easter Vigil, receiving First Eucharist and Confirmation. Reconciliation will take place during Lent. Kevin lives in Villa Park with his parents, a sister, and a brother. His sister, Ashley, is also participating in RCIA, and his brother Daniel is a third grade student in the St. Pius X Faith Formation Program. Kevin attends Willowbrook High School where he is a Senior, planning to attend the College of DuPage after graduation. After completing his basic courses at COD, he hopes to transfer to Northern Illinois University to study for a degree in Business. Joining the RCIA Program marks a return to the Catholic Church for Kevin. Although baptized into the Catholic Church, he and his family, for different reasons, did not attend or belong to a specific Church. Now Kevin and his family are ready to become full members of the Catholic Church, leading to Kevin s participation in RCIA. Kevin is enjoying the classes, I m having fun interacting with others. The topics of the classes have had an effect on Kevin s life. He says he is a much nicer person. I ve changed my personality and look at God. He sees that he is applying his newly deepened faith in active ways, trying to connect and help people with problems, and tell them what is good for you and what is not good for you. The community of St. Pius has made an impression on Kevin as well. There are a lot of friendly people here. He related being at a Friendship Sunday event after Break Out Class, and Sr. Ann greeted him and asked him how he was doing. That one example of reaching out really made an impression on him. Please pray for Kevin and all the participants in the RCIA Program. And don t forget to greet our Catechumen and Candidates when you see them. As you can see from Kevin s response, it really makes a difference! James: Pearls for Wise Living Week of Jan. 27 Session 2: Wisdom and Pure Religion Readings: James 1:19-27 James moves on to the wisdom needed in the daily practice of our faith. What does Christian life look like when it is practiced correctly? What is pure religion? James original audience may have had more trials leading to anger than Christians do today as well as temptations to keep their faith a private matter rather than applying it to their daily life. Many of them were also first generation Jews turned Christians who needed to shift their focus from the Temple and practicing their faith via sacrifice and observance of the Law to the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, the New Temple and practical application of God s Word beginning in the heart. It is important to keep in mind that the Catholic Church understands that word of God refers first and foremost to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is the Word made flesh (John 1:1) whereas our Protestant brothers and sisters think of it as referring only to Scripture. God s word is more than just ink on paper. The word of God is living and active (Hebrews 4:12). It has come to us through the preaching and teaching of Jesus and the Apostles, both oral and written; through the inspired writings of the Old Testament; and through God s creative word such as that which gave rise to creation in Genesis 1. Please remember to arrive at least ten minutes prior to your session start time so that sessions may begin on time. If you have any questions about the study, call Kelly Reznicek at or Year of Faith: October 11, 2012 November 24, 2013 Catechism Corner: The Holy Spirit is the principle of every vital and truly saving action in each part of the Body. He works in many ways to build up the whole Body in charity: by God s Word which is able to build you up by Baptism, through which he forms Christ s Body; by the sacraments, which give growth and healing to Christ s members; by the grace of the apostles, which holds first place among his gifts ; by the virtues, which make us act according to what is good; finally, by the many special graces (called charisms ), by which he makes the faithful fit and ready to undertake various tasks and offices for the renewal and building up of the Church.

EL TIEMPO Los días de fiesta ya pasaron, el año se nos viene encima. Y qué clase de año será? De acuerdo con las palabras de Jesús en el Evangelio de hoy, será el año de la gracia del Señor. Y Jesús con seguridad no se refería solamente a los próximos trescientos sesenta y cinco días cuando hablaba a la gente en ese tiempo. El anuncio de la llegada de la gracia de Dios lo hizo Jesús para todos los tiempos, para cada año. De manera similar, leemos hoy en Nehemías cómo la gente se reunía con solemnidad a escuchar la Palabra de Dios como si fuera la primera vez. Escuchaban y luego se postraban con el rostro en la tierra y lloraban. Pero el profeta decía: Este día está dedicado al Señor no estén tristes. El año de la gracia del Señor es este año. El día dedicado al Señor es hoy. El tiempo de escuchar es ahora. Qué clase de año tendrás? Qué clase de día? La ayuda de Dios siempre está aquí. Lo que haces cada día será santo y aceptable al Señor solamente si escuchas y practicas la palabra de Dios. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.
