    MARY [THEOTOKOS] OF THE PASSION

    THEOTOKOS OF THE PASSION is said to be one of the [many] icons believed to be created by St. Luke the Evangelist. Iconographers of all times tried to show in the image of Theotokos as much beauty, gentleness, dignity and grandeur as they could imagine. They sometimes paint grief, and sometimes sorrowful, but always filled with spiritual strength and wisdom. The Most Pure Lady is always shown with her head covered with a veil, which drops to her shoulders, according to the tradition of Jewish women of that time. This veil or head covering is usually colored red to show her suffering and her acquired holiness. Under her veil her clothing is blue, symbolizing the humanity of the Theotokos. There are three golden stars, one on the forehead and one on each shoulder of the Most Holy Theotokos. The three stars are a symbol of the Holy Trinity. Sometimes the third star is covered by the figure of the Christ Child, the second person of the Holy Trinity.

    FR. STAN, as he likes to be called, pronounces his last name Kuca like “cootsa.” He was ordained for the

    Diocese of Wroclaw in Poland, but came to this country seven years ago with the intention to become a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago. The process leading to Fr. Stan’s appointment to us has had quite a few twists and turns, both on his side and also on ours. Fr. Stan’s journey to us had a number of stops along the way. Priests who are ordained for one Diocese but wish to be transferred to another one have to go through a process called “Incardination.” In the Archdiocese of Chicago, Incardination entails assignments of a couple years each in three different parishes. Then only if all three of the pastors of these parishes recommend him will the Cardinal accept him into the Archdiocese. Fr. Stan is completing the third of these temporary assignments and has received strong recommendations from all three pastors, and so the Priests’ Incardination Board has approved his incardination into the Archdiocese of Chicago, and he is ready to be appointed to a parish as a Chicago priest. The appointment of Associate Pastor is a two-part process. First, in January the newly-ordained class is appointed to parishes. They enter the parish as Deacons, and minister as Deacons for a couple months in Winter and early Spring. Then they are ordained as priests, finish their seminary studies, and return to the parish in the Summer as Associate Pastors. St. Elizabeth Seton was not chosen to be a parish for a newly-ordained priest, and so we entered the second part of the Associate Pastor assignment process, for priests who have been Associate Pastors in at least one parish already. The list of these priests came out in March, and the process entails conducting interviews with some of these priests, and then sending to the Placement Board a list of three priests, ranking them from 1st to 3rd, and giving your reasons for these choices and this ranking. For their part, the priests who are moving are also to send in a list of five parishes they’d be willing to be assigned to, and listing their reasons why. Five priests called me for an interview, so I met

    with each of them, showed them the church, the offices, and the rectory and then talked with them about the kind of parish St. Elizabeth Seton is, how we operate, and what we are looking for in an Associate Pastor. After all the interviews, I chose the three priests I felt would be the best for the parish, ranked them, and sent in the list. The Placement Board’s timeline showed that pastors were supposed to get a call regarding their new Associate on Friday, May 14th. Well, as that day wore on and I didn’t get a call, I be-gan to wonder what was going on, recalling that none of the five priests had called me to say that St. Elizabeth Seton was their first choice, and that there were more parishes on the list than there were priests available. Finally, at the end of the afternoon, the head of the Placement Board called and asked whether I’d be interested in interviewing a Polish priest who was completing the Incardination process. (Implicit in that question was the reality that none of the three priests on my list was being assigned to us.) The Placement Board Director then mentioned Fr. Stan’s name, told me where he’s currently assigned, and that his pastor (whom I know well and respect very much), thinks highly of Fr. Stan and made the comment that he feels Fr. Stan is on a par with, and maybe better than, the three priests on my original list. So I agreed to interview Fr. Stan, we met the following Tuesday, the interview went very well, and I told him I’d be very happy to have him assigned here. The next day he called me to say that he would like to be assigned to St. Elizabeth Seton, and so we both contacted the Placement Board to make our wishes known, and upon the Placement Board’s recommenda-tion, Cardinal George appointed Fr. Stan to our parish. Fr. Stan will begin his ministry here around the First of July, and I look forward to him joining us, and ask God’s blessings upon his priesthood and his work at St. Elizabeth Seton.

    A New Associate Pastor

    P EOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING IF A PRIEST HAS YET BEEN ASSIGNED TO TAKE Fr. Brian’s place as our parish’s Associate Pastor. I’m happy to share with you that last week the Diocesan Priests’ Placement Board recommended, and Cardinal George approved, the appointment of Rev. Stanislaw Kuca as St. Elizabeth Seton Church’s new Associate Pastor.

    May God Bless You,

  • Next week we are reminded of the mystery of the presence of the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist, the major source of ongoing nourishment and strength for all believers. In this sacrament, the Lord

    continues to meet us, dwell with us, and fulfill God’s promise to be with us always.

    A “B” AND “B” FOR THE SOUL

    Jesus is portrayed as being compassionate throughout the Gospel of Luke. We see this at the beginning of the passage when Jesus heals those who are ill, and also later when he nourishes the crowd of over 5000 (this is a count of men only, for women and children were generally not counted). There were five loaves. This makes seven items, and seven was the perfect number. What was given to

    Jesus was already good (for this was all that the disciples had), but Jesus blesses it and multiplies its goodness. There are a number of terms in this account that are Eucharistic (e.g., took, blessed, broke, gave, etc.). This miracle is presented as a predecessor to the institution of the Sacrament of the Eucharist. The twelve baskets of fragments are for the twelve tribes of Israel. No one in Israel would be hungry (physically or spiritually).

    They all ate and were satisfied (Luke 9:11b-17).

    At a little “B and B” (Bed and Breakfast) resi-dence) where a traveler can be promised a clean place, a good night’s sleep and a good meal to begin the day, could also say it offers rest and sustenance. Is it too irreverent to pro-pose that the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ offers an ongoing opportunity to have available the “B and B” of all “B and Bs” in the Eucharist? Our scriptures all deal with offering

    sustenance, beginning with Melchizedek presenting Abraham a little bread and wine along with a blessing. Then there is Paul reminding the fractious Corinthians how eating the bread and wine sustains them as they proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes. Finally, Jesus pro-vides rest and sustenance for his disciples, along with 5000 others who show up. There is a gentleman who works off a truck, checking gas meters and doing repairs for the gas company. He stops in his local church to have his lunch there. He said it provided him a chance to talk to the Lord and rest for a few moments in the Lord’s presence. It sustained him over the years. Again, rest and sustenance. God’s ongoing hospitality in the Eucharist has continued over gen-erations to offer rest and sustenance. What could be better than having the Lord coming to dwell within us, giving us the nourishment necessary to sustain us on our journey. How does the real-ity of the Eucharist sustain you in your life?

    Readings for the Week May 31st-June 5th: Mon.: Zep 3:14-18a; Lk 1:39-56 Tues.: 2 Pt 3:12-15a; 17-18; Mk 12:13-17 Wed.: 2 Tm 1:1-3, 6-12; Mk 12:18-27 Thurs.: 2 Tm 2:8-15; Mk 12:28-34 Fri.: 2 Tm 3:10-17; Mk 12:35-37 Sat.: 2 Tm 4:1-8; Mk 12:38-44

    Melchizedek brought out bread and wine (Genesis 14:18-20). FIRST READING

    Melchizedek is a king and priest of the city of Salem. He was seen as one who prefigured Jesus. Jesus, too, was a priest and king. He, too, was the king of Jerusalem (“city of” is

    “jeru” in Hebrew—so the phrase “city of Sa-lem” is actually “jeru-salem”). He, too, offered bread and wine at the Last Supper, just as Melchizedek did when he met Abraham.

    This is the oldest written version of the institution of the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Paul writes to help the Corinthians understand the gravity of their sin in their failure to be charitable to the members of their community (for in the Eucharist we are in communion with God and also with our sisters and brothers).

    Although this version is the oldest written form, it is actually more edited than the earlier version found in Mark and Matthew. We know this is true because of the repetition of “remembrance” and the phrase “cup is the new covenant in my blood,” as opposed to cup of “my blood of the covenant.”

    For as often as you eat and drink, you proclaim the death of the Lord (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). SECOND READING

    Journey with the Lord and let your heart hear God’s Words….

    By Margie Guadagno St. Elizabeth Seton Pastoral Associate

    When the disciples

    met Jesus

    on the road,

    they were

    disappointed

    and sad.

    He walked with them

    and listened to

    their story.

    Then, by opening up

    the Scriptures

    He gave them hope!

    He helped them see

    that they were

    not abandoned

    or left orphaned,

    that God

    was with them

    and would

    always be part

    of their journey.

    The Way We Were

    W HEN I WAS GROWING UP, THERE WERE CERTAIN THINGS WE DID IN MY FAMILY AND CERTAIN THINGS WE DIDN’T

    DO. We made our beds, put dirty clothes in the hamper and washed the dishes after dinner. We didn’t talk back to Mom or Dad, we didn’t say bad words, and we did-n’t hit each other. That’s what made us a family. When it came to our faith, we got ashes on Ash Wednesday, palms on Palm Sun-day, went to Confession on Saturdays and Mass on Sundays. We didn’t eat fish on Friday, we didn’t miss saying the Rosary at wakes, and we didn’t eat or drink any-thing for 3 hours before receiving Com-munion. That’s what made us Catholic. Becoming Catholic during the last 500 years or so pretty much followed the same format. You met with the pastor who told you what to believe and what not to be-lieve and what to do and what not to do. There were lots of lines and boundaries between Catholics and everybody else and certain rules applied depending on which side of the line you were standing. For most of us, we believed this was the way it had always been in the Church. It was-n’t until after Vatican II that much of the research into the history of the very early Church and the development of our Sacra-ments that had gone on since the early 1900s became more generally known among the ordinary Catholic sitting in the pews. Besides the reform of the Liturgy, the Council called for a reform of the process

    for adult Baptism. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is modeled on the way people became Christian during the first 400 years of the Church. In those days, if you wanted to become a Christian, you needed a Sponsor, someone already Christian who would vouch for you that you weren’t a Roman ‘spy.’ Once you were accepted, you en-tered the Catechumenate, a stage that often lasted three years or more. During that time you attended the first part of the Mass, what we call today The Liturgy of the Word. Then you were dismissed from the assembly to go and learn from a catechist what the scriptures you just heard meant. During the week you were watched carefully by members of the Church to see if you were behaving as Jesus called you to behave in the Gospels. That was the only way the Church could know if you truly desired to become Christian. When the time came for your Baptism, your Sponsor stepped forward to speak for you and con-firm that you were indeed ready to be-come part of the community. You were then ‘elected’ to join the others preparing for Baptism and entered a period of deep reflection and intense prayer that led to Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. Once you were part of the community, you spent many more months hearing homilies that opened up the meaning of all you had experienced in your preparation for and reception of the sacraments of initiation. Next week: How the process works today in the Church.

    Keeping In Touch

  • In this month of Marian celebrations, let us reflect with Mary as she was drawn in to experience the life of the Holy Trinity

    MaryMaryMary andandand the the the

    HolyHolyHoly TrinityTrinityTrinity

    By Fr. Brian WelterBy Fr. Brian WelterBy Fr. Brian Welter

    I AM SUGGESTING THAT ONE WAY INTO THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE TRINITY IS THROUGH AND WITH MARY AT HER ANNUNCIATION.

    What this reflection poses to do is awaken an interior taste for God. The Trinity is simply the reality of God. The mystery that was taught, is that there are three persons (Father, Son, Spirit), yet one God. It is a mystery, not to be figured out (which only leads to keep God as a concept), but tasted, relished and understood like any relationship in which you have been pierced by love.

    Relish with Mary this interchange between her and God. By no means is the Annunciation a stoic event at which Mary simply and intellectually replies to God, and then gets on with her life. Rather, Mary is drawn into the heart of God, drawn affectively through the Holy Spirit. “How will this happen?” asks Mary. “The Holy Spirit will come upon you” is the reply. New life is delivered not from outside, but conceived interiorly as Mary completely surrenders to the Spirit. What does Mary relish as she says yes? What is her own heart tasting as the Spirit brings new life to her — and in her?

    Page Eight MOST HOLY TRINITY May 30, 2010

  • SIT WITH THIS FOR A WHILE IN YOUR OWN HEART: What is Mary feeling as the Spirit comes upon her?

    T he Holy Spirit, as we may remember, is the Spirit sent from the Father and Son. The Holy Spirit is pure poverty, in the sense that the Spirit is the last drop of love poured out between the Father and Son. The Holy Spirit is dynamic, al-ways moving between the Father and Son; a ‘poured out’ love. The Holy Spirit unites the Father and Son and is why Jesus says, “The Father and I are One.” The absolute beauty of the pictured Annunciation image (opposite page) is that Mary is listening to her own heart as it is stirred by the love of someone else. Her response is actually the same type of love as the Spirit: nothing is held back. She gives her own life, her own body over to God. Mary is the great icon of reality in the face of a world that is cautious about God. The great fear of many people is the thought that ‘God will take away something if I decide to get too close.’ This image speaks other-wise; God brings life to those who yield, not death. The beauty of the Annunciation, the breathtaking sweetness of this simply beautiful heart, is that we have an image, which opens us to a heartfelt under-standing of what is always happening within the heart of God (God as Trinity). Quite purely, God is a relationship between Father, Son and Spirit. It is always moving, pouring out in love, suffering with each other in love. You have tasted a mirror of this love in your own relationships, the times when you have not held back, but surrendered your love when your own heart was pierced by another.

    NOW THE BIG POINT. When does God, the Trinity, no longer remain a concept?

    T he piercing of your own hearts began the day of your baptism when you received the in-dwelling Holy Spirit. God’s own Spirit rests within your heart. The Father and Son are united by the Holy Spirit and they constantly, like waves roll-ing on the sand, communicate and share with each other an ‘emptying love’. That communication takes place and passes through your heart. It is always happening. Prayer, true prayer, is your personal response to this ongoing presence in your heart (By the way, all prayer is Trinitarian — done in the name of the

    Father, Son and Holy Spirit.) Awareness of this presence develops through noticing what stirs within your heart as you behold images, such as this one, or listen to the words of scripture.

    In the face of this beautiful Marian image, let your heart be drawn by what draws Mary.

    A s this happens, as you behold the beauty of this interchange, notice what stirs within you:

    Is there fear? What is your attitude toward the fear? Is there hesitancy to acknowledge God? Are there tears? Is there no feeling? Is there sorrow or sadness? Is there joy? Is there a tangible silence?

    Regardless of what is felt, speak directly to God from what stirs within. Listen interiorly for the reply from God, taste what is being brought to life within you. How do you desire to respond as you relish what God communicates to you? Prayer now becomes God’s work within you, the Trinity

    becomes the reality of life itself. Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding and my entire will, All I have and call my own. You have given all to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Everything is yours; do with it what you will. Give me only your love and your grace. That is enough for me. — By St. Ignatius of Loyola

    Have you visited the new St. Elizabeth Seton our new website yet? www.steseton.com

    “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord;

    there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone... As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body,

    though many, are one body, so also Christ.” 1 CORINTHIANS 12

    We have gone through many changes since those first Masses of St. Elizabeth Seton Church that were celebrated at Andrew High School over 24 years ago. We, united through liturgy, formed

    a community. Today, the tapestry of prayer and music that is woven into our daily and weekly liturgies is the cornerstone of our church and that bond is stronger than ever. Once a community is united in celebration and in its beliefs, it can accomplish a great deal through a sharing of time, talent and treasure. Like our humble beginnings, the website will continue to evolve, offering new

    opportunities for parish life. Visit the site to learn about our ministries, how to get information about upcoming events, all ministers schedules and download forms from parish registration to athletics!

  • TheTheThe HelpHelpHelp A Novel by Kathryn Stockett

    Once again the Seton Summer Readers are asking about a book we may all enjoy during the coming months and then in September gather together to reflect on it. The Help is a novel relating the story of women – mothers, daughters, caregivers, and friends and how they view one another. The setting is Mississippi in 1962 and centers on three women who come together for a risky project. It’s a story of individuals who are hemmed in by customs and rituals that are suffocating.

    Seniors of Seton SAINT OF THE WEEK St. Venerable Bede

    BEDE IS ONE OF THE FEW SAINTS HONORED AS VENER-ABLE EVEN DURING HIS LIFETIME. HIS WRITINGS WERE FILLED WITH SUCH FAITH AND LEARNING THAT EVEN WHILE HE WAS STILL ALIVE, A CHURCH COUNCIL OR-DERED THEM TO BE READ PUBLICLY IN THE CHURCHES.

    At an early age Bede was entrusted to the care of the abbot of the Monastery of St. Paul, Jarrow. The happy combination of genius and the instruction of schol-arly, saintly monks produced a saint and an extraor-dinary scholar, perhaps the most outstanding one of his day. He was deeply versed in all the sciences of his times: natural philosophy, the philosophical princi-ples of Aristotle, astronomy, arithmetic, grammar, ec-clesiastical history, the lives of the saints and, espe-cially, Holy Scripture. From the time of his ordination to the priesthood at 30 (he had been ordained deacon at 19) till his death, he was ever occupied with learn-ing, writing and teaching. Besides the many books that he copied, he composed 45 of his own, including 30 commentaries on books of the Bible.

    Although eagerly sought by kings and other notables, even Pope Sergius, Bede managed to remain in his own monastery till his death. Only once did he leave for a few months in order to teach in the school of the archbishop of York. Bede died in 735 praying his fa-vorite prayer: “Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As in the beginning, so now, and forever.”

    His Ecclesiastical History of the English People is com-monly regarded as of decisive importance in the art

    and science of writing history. A unique era was com-ing to an end at the time of Bede’s death: It had ful-filled its purpose of preparing Western Christianity to assimilate the non-Roman barbarian North. Bede

    recognized the opening to a new day in the life of the Church even as it was happening.

    COMMENT Though his History is the greatest legacy Bede has left us, his work in all the sciences (especially in Scripture) should not be overlooked. During his last Lent, he worked on a translation of the Gospel of St. John into English, completing it the day he died. But of this work “to break the word to the poor and unlearned” nothing remains today.

    Saturday, Aug. 21st, Allen Edwards, “The Voice of Branson” will make a special appearance

    at Polonia Banquets. More details to follow.

    Our next meeting is Tuesday, June 1st. Mass will be celebrated at 9am in the church. The doors to the Parish Life Center will not open until 9:30am. John Shattuck, who has spear-headed Haitian relief efforts, will give us a first-hand account of conditions in Haiti. To end this busy active season, light refreshments will be served as a member “thank you.”

    Your Officers and Board wish you all a happy, healthy, and safe summer until we meet again in September.
