Ministry of Care
If you or a family member are admitted to a hospital and would

the Rectory Office at 708-344-0757.
Si usted o algún miembro de la familia está enfermo en el hospital y desea Confesarse, recibir la Unción de los enfermos y la

un sacerdote, diácono o Ministro de Cuidado de la parroquia,
llámenos a la rectoría. De acuerdo con las leyes del Acta HIPPA, el hospital no puede notificar a las parroquias los nombres

Third Sunday of Easter
REMEMBERING DURING THE EASTER SEASON
The Easter season gives us many opportunities to remember the totality of what
God has done for us. Today, two weeks after Easter, the scripture writers urge us to remember the whole event of the paschal mystery—Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection. This is important because every one of us who is baptized has a share in that mystery. We are constantly
called to die to sin and rise to renewed life in Christ Jesus.
Today’s Readings: Acts 3:13–15, 17–19; Psalm 4:2, 4, 7–9; 1 John 2: 1–5a; Luke 24:35–48

Operation Rice Bowl Collection
We are now collecting Operation Rice Bowls! Please bring your Rice Bowls to place in the labeled
receptacles at the Blessed Mother & St. Joseph shrines. Or, better yet, why not bring the money you
collected to church in a zip lock bag or similar container & keep your Rice Bowl at home. That way you
can put spare change in it all year long, & continue to help those in need. What a great “head start” that
will be for next year’s campaign. Either way, please bring your Operation Rice Bowl offerings to church this coming
week. A big Thank You to everyone who participated in this Lenten activity. May God Bless You, as you have helped
to bless the poor!
You are invited to attend the Sacred Heart Parish

BABY BOTTLE PROJECT
Beginning this Sunday (today) April
19th, our Women’s Club will be hosting
The Baby Bottle Project benefitting The
Women’s Centers of Greater Chicagoland.
This non-profit organization directly assists
mothers and families experiencing crisis
pregnancies by offering emotional, financial, material, and spiritual support through counseling,
clothing & monetary provisions, prayer, and other aid.
Each year the three locations together have over 5,000
appointments with expecting mothers. By God’s grace,
The Women’s Centers have saved over 36,000 babies,
and their mothers, from abortion since opening in 1984.
Please take a Baby Bottle home with you from church,
this weekend, April 18/19, fill it with your spare change,
and return it the weekend of May 16/17.
This is a simple, but crucial fundraising effort for The
Women’s Centers. Please note the Baby Bottles cost almost $1.00 per bottle and are recycled afterwards so
please return upon completion of the project. Thank you
for helping defend life and remember to keep all pro-life
undertakings in your prayers.

you.’ But they were startled and frightened.” - LUKE 24:36-37
Throughout the day we have many opportunities to “see the
face of Jesus” in others and provide some “peace” in their
lives. Just because the person is a stranger, maybe looks different than us or is someone we don’t particularly care for doesn’t
let us off the hook.

Tercer Domingo de Pascua
RECUERDOS
Hace dos años, luego de la muerte de mi hermana menor a
la edad de 37 años, sentí la necesidad de rodearme de recuerdos de
su vida y logros. Los últimos meses que pasó luchando contra una
forma agresiva de esclerosis múltiple fue un tiempo en el que su
cuerpo simplemente se deterioró. Después de su muerte sentí la imperiosa necesidad de colocar fotos en el cubículo de mi oficina y en
mi casa, fotos que mostraban a mi hermana en sus primeros años
como una joven vibrante, saludable y brillante.
Casi un año después, visité a otra hermana y me di cuenta que en su casa tenía solamente dos fotos de
mi difunta hermana. Una de las fotos había sido tomada años atrás y mostraba a nuestra hermana como una
joven en toda su vitalidad. La otra fue tomada pocos meses antes de su muerte. En esa foto estaba en una silla
de ruedas, pálida, delgada y débil. Mi hermana me dijo que siempre quería tener presente la salud, la enfermedad y la muerte, ya que mostraban a nuestra difunta hermana como realmente era. Para mí fue un momento de
gran inspiración. Cuando ahora recuerdo a mi hermana, trato de pensar en las imágenes de sus años de vitalidad, así como en las imágenes de los meses finales y sus últimos días. Todas estas imágenes constituyen lo
que realmente era mi hermana.
RECORDAMOS DURANTE LA TEMPORADA DE PASCUA
La temporada de Pascua nos da muchas oportunidades para recordar todo lo que Dios ha hecho por nosotros.
Hoy, dos semanas después de Pascua, los escritores de la Biblia nos instan a recordar todo el acontecimiento
del misterio pascual: la pasión, muerte y resurrección de Cristo. Esto es importante porque cada uno de nosotros que es bautizado forma parte de ese misterio. Estamos llamados constantemente a morir en el pecado y
resucitar a una vida nueva en Cristo.
Lecturas de hoy: Hechos 3:13–15, 17–19; Salmo 4:2, 4, 7–8, 9; 1 Juan 2:1–5a; Lucas 24:35–48

Heavenly Father, Look upon our brothers and sisters who are ill. In
the Midst of illness and pain, may they be united with Christ, who
heals both body and soul; may they know the consolation promised to those who suffer and be fully restored to health. We ask
this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
If you or one of your loved ones wish to be included on or taken
off the sick list each month, please call the Rectory at 344-0757.
