Western Avenue Chicago, Illinois The Guide Queen of Angels Parish October 26, 2014 Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time HAVE A HAPPY, HOLY HALLOWEEN In 835 AD, Pope Gregory IV moved the celebration for all the martyrs (later All Saints Day) from May 13 to November 1. The night before (October 31) became known as All Hallows Even, or holy evening. Eventually the name was shortened in Scotland to Halloween. On November 2, the Church marks All Souls Day, sometimes celebrated as the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) in memory of deceased loved ones. The purpose of these feasts is to remember all those who have died, including those holy people who are called Saints by the Church. Through the communion of saints, we are not limited by time and space, but stay connected to all of God s family from throughout the ages. Along with eating candy and dressing in costumes, Halloween and the days that follow are a great time to select a patron saint and say a prayer to your patron, share memories of a family member who has died, and donate to children and families in need (see candy drive info on page 5). JOIN US FOR ALL SOULS DAY ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2 Next weekend, November 1-2, we will mark the Commemoration of the Faithful Departed, also known as All Souls Day, at the 5 p.m. Saturday Mass and at all Sunday Masses. Please gather the names of deceased friends and relatives whom you would like to enroll in the Parish Remembrance Society, which is prayed for at Mass several times a month. Then write the names on the back of your All Souls envelope and return it in the collection. Funds go to individuals in need. Thank you! MUSIC MINISTRY UPDATES Choir: Interested in joining the choir?

The ArtsScene: The ArtsScene concert series presents Bow and Hammer, the fourth concert in the series, at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 8. Having been moved by the emotional power of repertoire for piano and violin, Bow and Hammer was born with the common goal of refreshing the relevancy of quality, complex music through poignant programs.

Quigley Scholars are recommended by a parish priest, school and family. They are young men who like to help others, often are involved in their parish and apply themselves at school. Scholars can choose to come to either St. Joseph College Seminary or Mundelein Seminary for a session once a month from September through April. Activities include praying together, attending Mass, dinner and attending a faith sharing session with the college seminarians. Scholars who attend Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese may also apply for a $2,500 scholarship to help offset the cost of high school tuition. The program is open to teens in Catholic and public high schools, as well as homeschoolers. Young men can join at any level.

3 October 26, 2014 Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time Page Three BUILDING ON 100 YEARS OF CARING AND SHARING Love From the Heart For the last few Sundays, the Gospel readings started with some encounter between Jesus and the Pharisees. Today is a repeat of that exchange. One of their members, an expert in the law, posed the question to Jesus, Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law? The Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament, listed about 613 laws. So the lawyer wanted an answer from Jesus as to which of this number was most important. Jesus had a response with two simple rules: Love God and love your neighbor. He went on to say that the whole law and all the prophecies were built on these two commandments. This must have been a shock to the lawyer who, by profession, saw every detail of the law. Looking at what was important for Jesus in his ministry we see that, in addition to being connected with his Father, he had great love for all people he encountered in his daily life. Jesus wanted the people of his time (and ours, too) to be aware of the great love God had for them; hence, the goodness shown by Jesus in healing. If we stop and reflect, God has been unbelievably generous to us. It is apparent in countless ways all of creation is a gift from God, the life we ve been given, the air we breathe, the splendor of the seasons which is always beyond words, health, love of family, etc. May I suggest that once in a while we take a few moments on our way to work, or before we close our eyes at night, to let God s goodness and love sink deeply into our minds and hearts and then whisper, Thank you, God. The psalmist, in the responsorial psalm of today s liturgy helps us express our love for God when he says, I love you, Lord, my strength. He gives all kinds of reasons why God is our security and hope. Some of the images the psalmist uses in describing God are worth meditating upon: God is a rock for us, our strength, our deliverer from evil and pain, a shield of protection as we move through each day, a stronghold who never waivers, but who pleads with us to trust this God. God cares for us as no one in this world can. The second part of the commandment which Jesus gave to the lawyer has a different twist to it: Love your neighbor as yourself. The question that follows for us is: How much do we love ourselves in a genuinely healthy way? As the old adage says, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The challenge is to give to others the same kind of loving treatment you give yourself. And, who are those others to whom we are invited to extend love and care? A second look at the first reading from the book of Exodus will throw light on this question. The writer points out that our neighbor not only includes family and friends, but strangers, the widow, homeless, the poor and the very neediest in society. Enough said! So, who might be the neediest in your life experience, who are the strangers? They may not live next door to you, but they belong to God s family and to the vast community of which each of us is a member. In other words, all people come under the umbrella of love your neighbor as yourself. When love is rooted in the heart, rather than in the details of the laws, it sees the genuineness of another person, of the one in need, of the neighbor next door, of the one who looks different than me. When our actions come from the heart, they are filled with compassion and care. Ask Jesus how to keep the two great commandments of loving God and loving neighbor. Let God teach you today! Monsignor Jim Kaczorowski CANDY CANE CARNIVAL WILL BE NOVEMBER 22 Tired of the same old craft fair? Want something new and fresh? Then we have something for you! The annual Queen of Angels Craft Fair has been retooled and is now the Candy Cane Carnival and will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, November 22 in the Guild Hall. There will be more things for children to do. New activities include a reindeer fun run, paint your own pottery, fast pitch, bouncy house and bouncy boxing, a double shot basketball, an exotic animal show, the dancing heads (like jib jab: make a DVD of your family in front of a green screen with your head and a cartoon body dancing and singing). Some favorites will return such as Breakfast and Lunch with Santa, the North Pole, Santa s Saloon, all new vendors selling new items, homemade holiday gifts made by our schoolchildren and, of course, the Sugar Plum Bakery. So, mark your calendars and get ready to kick off the holidays with fun and frolic and the Candy Cane Carnival! See you there!

SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT depaul REFLECTS: In this Sunday s Gospel, we find the truth that loving God isn t merely a matter of fervor in our hearts, but that it must be expressed in doing well for the sake of others. This month, through your gifts, the Society of St. Vincent depaul was able to show that we indeed love our neighbors by assisting four families by providing referrals as well as help with rent and transportation for those suffering a loss of income due to disability or unemployment. Thank you! SPRED NEEDS YOU TO VOLUNTEER Did you know that the SPRED Ministry in the Parish Center has three SPRED communities? We volunteers share our lives and grow in faith with special persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition, at Queen of Angels, we are also a Resource Center for SPRED parishes around the Archdiocese of Chicago. Twice yearly, training is provided by Queen of Angels catechists to ensure new volunteers are comfortable in their roles and can appreciate the importance of the environment in SPRED to quiet oneself through creative work to be open to understanding God s love for us. This past October 4, 11 Helper Catechists were trained. These eleven catechists are now sharing their friendship and faith with Special Friends with disabilities in parishes in Chicago and the North, Northwest, and South Suburbs. We still need catechists at Queen of Angels, especially on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Would you like to share your friendship and faith in a small faith community? Do you feel God is calling you to this ministry? If you do, please contact Julia Hess at the SPRED Office at Queen of Angels Parish Center, or Betty Rogus, Leader Catechist, IS YOUR COMPANY CONNECTED TO THE UNITED WAY? If yes, then please write in the Learning Resource Program at Queen of Angels. Donations will benefit our Learning Resource Program which continues to make education inclusive and excellent for all of our students here at Q of A. Students who have learning challenges such as autism, dyslexia and hearing loss benefit from the additional staff and resources the Learning Resource Program offers as do advanced learners who require additional challenges and opportunities to explore. Note: our program name will not appear in the official United Way list; however, writing in the Learning Resource Program at Queen of Angels is acceptable and very much appreciated!

5 October 26, 2014 Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time Page Five SPREAD THE SWEETNESS: POST-HALLOWEEN CANDY DRIVE Trick-or-treating presents a unique opportunity to teach our kids about sharing. In the days directly following Halloween, the Queen of Angels Commons Community Service Team will host The Great Halloween Giveaway Project. This is an opportunity for children to donate some of their candy to the Ronald McDonald house located in the Streeterville area near Lurie Children s Hospital. This house will help keep 86 families of hospitalized children together each night. Donate one piece, a handful or bagful of candy. The drive promotes sharing in a way children of any age can understand. Encouraging our children to serve others by giving away what they themselves would like to keep begets a powerful lesson in being grateful and generous. We hope your family will participate and make this Halloween a fun time for giving as well as receiving. Didn t get as many trick-or-treaters as you thought you d have? Need leftover Halloween candy out of your house? Donate it to the drive! The drive will run from Monday, November 3 to Thursday, November 6 with drop boxes in the school office and the preschool wing of the school. Contact Julie Buckert with questions at RETREAT FOR YOUNG ADULTS Too much confusion in your life? Pulled in a million directions? You re not the only one.

Take time to listen to peers share how they find God in their lives, have conversations in small groups, enjoy some quiet time, and explore your faith life. Registration closes October 29.

Father Chuck Dahm, OP, joined us at each Mass last weekend to share his expertise on the subject of domestic violence. Our parish is beginning an important discussion to raise awareness about Domestic Violence issues and how domestic violence affects families in our community. To join local efforts to raise awareness about this issue and to help victims get the support they deserve, a Domestic Violence Action Committee has been formed at Queen of Angels. The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 10 at the Parish Center. For more info, please contact the parish office at or The following information has been provided as a resource by the Archdiocese of Chicago. Ways you can help prevent domestic & sexual violence: Respect yourself and others. Expect to be respected. Know that YOU have the power to make a difference. Educate yourself and others on the reality of domestic and sexual violence. Lessen the stigma for victims by openly speaking about how it affects all. Believe and support victims. Understand the many barriers that make leaving abusive relationships difficult. Help end victim blaming by speaking up when you hear or read it. Have ongoing conversations with youth about healthy relationships and sexual respect. Model the use of respectful language, sowing empathy and treating others as equals. Challenge society s narrow definition of manhood where men are aggressive and controlling and women and girls are sexually objectified. Promote positive parenting and offer support to struggling parents. Practice bystander intervention: safely stop or prevent violence when you see it. Believe that a safer world is possible. If you are seeking help, contact the National Hotline at SAFE or the State of Illinois Helpline at Learn about the mission and resources of the Archdiocesan Domestic Abuse Outreach program by logging onto and select Domestic Violence Committee.

6 Page Six Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time October 26, 2014 CONSTRUYENDO EN 100 AÑOS DE COMPARTIR Y CUIDAR Amor del Corazon Los últimos domingos las lecturas del Evangelio empezaron con algún encuentro entre Jesús y los fariseos. Hoy se repite ese intercambio. Uno de los miembros, un experto en la ley, le hizo la pregunta a Jesús, Maestro: Cuál es el mandamiento más grande en la ley? El Tora, los primeros cinco libros del Viejo Testamento, enlistaba alrededor de 613 leyes. Así que el abogado quería una respuesta de Jesús de cual de este número era más importante. Jesús tenía una respuesta con dos simples reglas: Amar a Dios y Amar a tu Prójimo. El continuó diciendo que toda la ley y todas las profecías se habían formado de estos dos mandamientos. Esto debe haber sido una sorpresa para el abogado quien, por profesión, veía cada detalle de la ley. Viendo a lo que era importante para Jesús en su ministerio vemos que, además de estar conectado con su Padre, él tenía gran amor por toda la gente que se encontraba en su vida diaria. Jesús quería que la gente de su tiempo (y la nuestra, también) supieran del gran amor que Dios tenía por ellos; de ahí, la bondad mostrada por Jesús en sanación. Si nos detenemos y reflexionamos, Dios ha sido increíblemente generoso con nosotros. Es aparente en innumerables maneras toda la creación es un regalo de Dios, la vida que se nos ha dado, el aire que respiramos, el esplendor de las estaciones el cual siempre está más allá de las palabras, salud, amor de familia, etc. Puedo sugerir que de vez en cuando tomemos unos momentos en nuestro camino al trabajo, o antes de cerrar nuestros ojos en la noche para dejar que la bondad y amor de Dios se hundan profundamente en nuestras mentes y corazones y entonces murmuren, Gracias, Dios. El salmista, en el salmo responsorial de la liturgia de hoy nos ayuda a expresar nuestro amor por Dios cuando dice, Te amo, Señor, mi fuerza. Él nos da toda clase de razones de porque Dios es nuestra seguridad y esperanza. Vale la pena meditar en algunas de las imágenes que el salmista usa al describir a Dios: Dios es una roca para nosotros, nuestra fortaleza, el que nos libra del diablo y el dolor, un escudo de protección al movernos a través de cada día, una fortaleza que nunca abandona, sino que nos pide que confiemos en este Dios. Dios nos cuida como nadie en este mundo puede hacerlo. La segunda parte del mandamiento que Jesús le dio al abogado tiene un giro diferente: Ama a tu Prójimo como a ti Mismo. La pregunta que sigue para nosotros es: Cuánto nos amamos a nosotros mismos en una manera verdaderamente saludable? Como dice el adagio, Trata a los demás como te gustaría que te traten a ti. El reto es dar a los demás la misma clase de tratamiento amoroso que te das a ti mismo. Y quiénes son esos otros a quienes se nos invita a extender amor y cuidado? Una segunda mirada a la primera lectura del libro de Éxodo nos echará luz en esta pregunta. El escritor señala que nuestro prójimo no solo incluye familia y amigos, sino extraños, la viuda, las personas sin hogar, los pobres y los más necesitados en la sociedad. Suficiente dicho! Así que: Quién será el más necesitado en la experiencia de sus vidas, quienes son los extraños? Ellos pueden no vivir al lado de ustedes pero pertenecen a la familia de Dios y a la vasta comunidad de la cual cada uno de nosotros es un miembro. En otras palabras, toda la gente está en la misma categoría de ama a tu prójimo como a ti mismo. Cuando el amor esta enraizado en el corazón más que en los detalles de las leyes, ve lo genuino de la otra persona, del que está necesitado, del vecino de al lado, de aquel que se ve diferente a mí. Cuando nuestras acciones salen del corazón, están llenas de compasión y cuidado. Pregunta a Jesús como guardar los dos grandes mandamientos de amar a Dios y amar a tu prójimo. Deja que Dios te enseñe hoy!
