Year of Mercy
Faith Formation
"The Christian life, as Jesus presents it, seems truly to be folly.
St. Paul himself speaks of 'the folly of the cross of Christ,
which is not part of the wisdom of the world'. To be a Christian
is to become a bit foolish, in a certain sense, and to renounce
that worldly shrewdness in order to do all
that Jesus tells us to do. And, if we make
an accounting, if we balance things out, it
seems to weigh against us. But the path of
Jesus is magnanimity, generosity, the
giving of oneself without measure. He
came into the world to save and he gave
himself, he forgave, he spoke ill of no one,
he did not judge."
— Pope Francis
2016-2017 Registration

St. Pius X Youth Ministry
Youth Group Roll Out
On Monday, September 12, from 6:30-8 pm, the youth group
is partnering with our St. Vincent de Paul Society and our
Prayer Shawl Ministry to make mats for the homeless. The
mats are made from plastic bags, like ones from grocery stores.
So from now on, please save these plastic bags and bring
them to the event. Parents, if you know how to crochet, feel
free to bring your hooks and join us at the event. In addition to
rolling out these mats, we’ll also be rolling out the youth
ministry year with kickball and cinnamon rolls. And don’t
forget to roll out of bed and show up with your worst bad hair
day. Invite friends!
Family Mass, RE/YM Introduction, and Ice Cream Social
On Monday, September 19, from 6:30-8 pm, kindergarten
through high school students and parents are invited and
encouraged to attend a Family Mass, RE/Youth Ministry
Introduction, and Ice Cream Social at Pius. After the Mass,
parents and students will receive RE/Youth Ministry packets
and calendars, hear about the RE/Youth Ministry program
this year, and get the chance to ask any questions you may
have. After the meeting, please stick around for a family ice
cream social!
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Join us for RCIA!
Each year men and women embark on an
exploration of the Catholic faith. Some are deciding
if they are called into the Catholic Church; others
have been Catholics all their lives and are now
interested in discovering what this really means.
Together we witness to the fact that our search for
God is a lifelong journey, a journey on which we make the most
progress when we walk it with others and with intention.
The RCIA Program will begin October 5!
WHAT:
Exploring the Catholic Faith
WHO:
Non-Catholics and Catholics Together
SIGN-UP:

Stewardship of Time & Talent Appeal
HAVE YOU BEEN THINKING ABOUT FR. RICHARD’S CHALLENGE TO USE
YOUR GOD-GIVEN GIFTS AND TALENTS IN SERVICE TO GOD AND OTHERS?
HAVE YOU BEEN WONDERING ABOUT HOW TO BECOME MORE INVOLVED IN OUR PARISH COMMUNITY?
Over the summer months, we were challenged to think about the gifts and talents that God has given us. We were reminded that
we are to be good stewards of these gifts and talents. We were also asked to reflect on how we are using our gifts and talents to
serve God and others.
Our annual Stewardship of Time & Talent Appeal will give parishioners the opportunity to respond to the challenge. We ask that
you spend some time in prayer over the next few weeks, reflecting on the gifts and talents God has given you, and considering
how you might use them in ministry in the St. Pius X Catholic Community in the coming year. The Parish Guide to Ministry
will give you an idea of which ministries and special events might match your special gifts and talents. The Guide to Ministry
is available on the parish website or hardcopies will be available in the Gathering Space.
Stewardship of Time & Talent Surveys will be inserted in the parish bulletin the weekend of September 24 and 25. You may
also complete the survey online by visiting our parish website at www.stpiuslombard.org. Completed surveys should be
presented during the Offertory at Mass on Commitment Weekend, October 1 and 2, or they may be returned to the
Parish Office.
FILLED OUT A SURVEY LAST YEAR? All you have to do to recommit to ministries you have
served in within the past year is simply provide current contact information, check one box on the
Stewardship of Time & Talent Survey and list those ministries in the space provided. You may still
indicate if you are interested in other ministries or if you would like to assist with one of the special
events listed on the back of the form.
If you have any questions regarding the Stewardship of Time & Talent Appeal, you may contact
Leanne Newman at [email protected] or 630-638-8509. You may also contact the
Parish Office via e-mail at [email protected] or by calling 630-627-4526.

St. Cecilia Singers (Children's Choir)- The St. Pius X school
children will continue to rehearse on Wednesday mornings at

children in grades 3-8 who would like to perform a wide
variety of music and receive excellent vocal music education.
We will rehearse Tuesdays from 3:15-4:30 and possibly

an older and younger choir. Concerts will be performed in the
church at least once per semester There will be a $60 fee to

meetings have been cancelled. Please email me with any
questions).

LA TERNURA DE DIOS
1.- Dios es misericordioso. El Salmo Penitencial (nº 50) y el
Evangelio de la Misericordia (las tres Parábolas del capítulo 15
de Lucas) transmiten una feliz noticia: que Dios es
misericordioso y bueno con nosotros. En el fragmento del salmo
se expresan dos sentimientos: el reconocimiento de nuestro
pecado ante Dios y la seguridad de ser renovados por su Espíritu
en lo más íntimo de nuestro ser. El pecado es una infidelidad al
amor que Dios nos tiene, y no una mera infracción de un código
externo. El pecado nos separa de Dios, principio de vida. El
perdón que Dios nos regala es una nueva creación, una
renovación interior expresada mediante la imagen de "un corazón
nuevo". La purificación profunda que el salmista pide a Dios
produce la restauración de las relaciones con Dios. El pecador
arrepentido se siente perdonado por Dios y quiere que todos los
conozcan: "Señor, me abrirás los labios y mi boca proclamará tu
alabanza". Quiere que todo el mundo experimente la misericordia
de Dios y se hace pregonero de su amor. Dios acepta como única
ofrenda "un corazón quebrantado y humillado".
rasgos de la vida. El da vida a aquellos que, libremente, deciden
seguirle. Dios Padre nos da vida porque es Amor. Habitar en la
casa del Padre es gozar de la misericordia y el cariño de Dios. El
hijo menor representa al discípulo autosuficiente que se ha
alejado del camino. Lejos de la casa del padre no hay vida
verdadera, sino desgracia y muerte. Pero el discípulo decide
volver al buen camino y allí goza de la profundidad de la vida. El
Padre lo acoge de nuevo y, de alguna manera, vuelve a
engendrarlo. La acogida paternal y amistosa del Padre devuelve a
aquel hombre la certeza de sentirse querido y lo rehabilita como
persona. El hermano mayor es el paradigma del cristiano que
siempre se ha creído en el camino adecuado, pero le ha faltado lo
más importante: el amor que supone el encuentro personal con el
Dios que nos da vida. Había vivido en la misma casa del Padre,
ha pertenecido desde su bautismo a la Iglesia, quizá ha trabajado
duramente en defensa de su fe, pero no ha experimentado el gran
gozo del amor del Padre. Por eso pone dificultades a la
misericordia, no entiende a una Dios que perdona siempre sin
límites.
4.- El Padre es el auténtico protagonista de la Parábola.
Debería titularse: "Parábola del Padre Pródigo en amor", o
"Parábola del Padre que sale al encuentro y perdona". El Dios de
Jesucristo es el Dios de la vida. Cuando nos alejamos de El
nuestra vida se debilita. Cuanto más estemos lejos del fuego de su
amor, más frío tendremos. Nos sentimos solos y abandonados,
como la oveja perdida. Cuando nos cerramos a su amor, como el
hijo mayor, nos invade la rutina, la desesperación y el desamor.
Lo más significativo que nos enseña la parábola no es ni nuestra
huida ni nuestra cerrazón, lo más importante es la misericordia y
la ternura de Dios, que quiere que vivamos de verdad. Hemos de
darnos cuenta de que Dios nos lleva en la palma de la mano, solo
quiere nuestra autorrealización personal. Esta es la invitación que
el Padre nos hace, ¿la aceptamos?
5.- La actitud de Dios es la acogida, la comprensión y el perdón.
Es semejante a lo que me contó hace unos días un joven:
"Una mañana cuando me dirigía al trabajo en mi coche recién
estrenado fui golpeado levemente en el parachoques por otro
automóvil. Los dos vehículos se detuvieron y el chico que
conducía el otro coche bajó para ver los daños. Yo estaba
asustado, reconocía que la culpa había sido mía. Me daba terror
tener que contarle a mi padre lo que me había sucedido,
sabiendo que sólo hacía dos días que mi padre lo había
comprado. El otro chico se mostró muy comprensivo tras
intercambiar los datos relativos a las licencias y el número de
matrícula de ambos vehículos. Cuando abrí la guantera para
2.- Es Dios el auténtico protagonista de las tres parábolas. En sacar los documentos me encontré que con un sobre donde vi una
evangelio de Lucas se describen tres parábolas de la misericordia: nota de puño y letra de mi padre, que decía: "hijo, en caso de
la oveja perdida, la moneda perdida y el hijo pródigo. En los tres accidente, recuerda que a quien quiero es a ti, no al coche".
Yo pensé al escuchar este relato: si esto lo hacen los padres y los
relatos se repiten los binomios, perdido-encontrado y tristezaamigos, cuánto más Dios que es Padre misericordioso. Pensé
alegría. La lejanía de Dios es lo que produce la pérdida y su
además, que Dios nos da siempre una nueva oportunidad y
cercanía la posibilidad del encuentro. La tristeza por la soledad
comprendí qué entrañables eran las palabras que escribió San
experimentada lejos de Dios se transforma en alegría tras el
Agustín tras su conversión. "Ahora te amo a ti sólo, a ti sólo sigo

justamente señoreas. Manda y ordena, te ruego, lo que quieras,

pero sana mis oídos para oír tu voz". Comprendí qué es la
auténtica conversión y lo que significa el amor misericordioso de
