|| Christmas 2018! || Celebrating with the family we all created! Youths and the Altar Servers! Still in it despite retired from the committee. Just because it's a place where youths gather, have fun, make mistakes, grow and learn! Youth development to me is important and this is why I stay, and continuously help support, guide and coach them! Another method for me to have a chance to build and develop others! Go Youths! -There are many ways to your end goal, change the method not the end goal- #jasonfung
"When we stand in the light it is not we who illumine the light and cause it to shine but we are illuminated and made shining by the light... God grants his blessings on those who serve him because they are serving him and on those who follow him because they are following him, but he receives no blessing from them because he is perfect and without need." - St. Irenaeus of Lyons
"We do not pay enough attention to prayer, for unless it arises from the heart which ought to be its centre, it is no more than a fruitless dream. Prayer ought to carry over into our thoughts, our words and our actions." - St. Marguerite Bourgeoys January 12 is the feast of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys the foundress of the Congregation of Notre Dame of Montreal. The congregation is an uncloistered religious community devoted to educating young girls and the poor.

Happy Birthday to my oldest friend in the world... We are really good at the awkward embrace and to say that our Rolodex of memories together is stuff of legends wouldn’t even do it justice... @yuckfield , I hope today is special and you enjoy it and find some time to do some Hot Yoga! Thanks for being awesome and consistently authentic... Be The Change. #elk #boyscoutmafia #altarservers #eaglescouts #adultlanguage #thepetersbasement #growinoldtogether #urine
Domus Ecclesiae ⛪️ Today our home was much like a home in the early Church where mass was celebrated where believers lived. What a gift to have mass offered in our house - we love hosting Uncle (Father) Brian. ⛪️ Thomas is wearing an alb fit for a 6 foot man that has had 3 feet of fabric cut from it with multiple safety pins helping to cinch it together. ⛪️ Vianney is wearing a pillowcase with arm and head holes cut into it at the last minute because there was no way he was serving mass in regular clothing. ⛪️ Olivia and Virginia read the reading and psalm and Avila was the biggest helper by napping through the entire mass. . . . . #massathome #stopringingthebell
Many thanks to all supporters of St. John Cantius in 2018. This year in the parish there were 50 baptisms, 8 marriages and many more events with the highlight being the Solemn Consecration of the Church building by Bishop Joseph N. Perry. Christmas Midnight Mass was standing room only and marked 125 years since the first Mass celebrated in our Parish in 1893. Deacon Matthew Schuster, SJC and Deacon David Yallaly, SJC celebrated their first Mass following deaconate ordination. Hundreds of visitors were welcomed to the church for Open House Chicago with the Chicago Architecture Foundation. The annual All Souls Mozart Requiem Mass drew a record crowd with many new visitors experiencing the beauty of sacred music and the Mass. On Instagram we received over 466 thousand likes on 370 posts. Also, our Instagram account also gained thousands of followers reaching 24.3k! The parish hosted events of the @CatholicArtGuild including the conference 'Beauty and the Art of the Sacred' with speakers including Dr. Peter Kwasniewski, architect Ethan Anthony, artist Juliette Aristedes, and sculptor Alexander Stoddart. While 2018 brought unexpected changes and challenges to the parish, the truth of the Gospel and the love of Christ on the Cross stood firm. The parish looks forward to continuing in the work of the Church in the coming year. Highlights will include welcoming a large RCIA class and the upcoming celebrations of the 125th year of the parish.

When Herod realized that he had been deceived by the magi, he became furious. He ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had ascertained from the magi. Then was fulfilled what had been said through Jeremiah the prophet: A voice was heard in Ramah, sobbing and loud lamentation; Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be consoled, since they were no more. Matthew 2:16-18 December 28 is the feast of the Holy Innocents. Today we pray for the Holy Innocents who were killed by Herod 2 millennia ago, and the innocents who are being killed in our modern world through abortion, human trafficking and war. Holy Innocents - pray for us!
"Stephen, full of grace and fortitude, was blessed by God with gifts of oratory and an unimpeachable logic against which no one could stand. His arguments in favor of the faith were accompanied by signs and wonders which were taken as a seal of Divine Authority. He spoke with great wisdom and the Spirit was with him. But even at the beginning, the followers of #christ were looked upon with a suspicion that bred fear, a fear that, in time, bred hatred. Stephen preached to the Jews who adopted Greek customs and ways. His enemies challenged him to a debate but they could not stand against his inspired eloquence. So great was their anger at their hurt pride that they accused him of blasphemy, falsely testifying that he spoke against Moses and against God. Brought before the Sanhedrin for judgment. his accusers twisted Stephen’s words against him, claiming that he wished to destroy the law and change their ancient traditions. When he was allowed to answer, Stephen spoke of the mercies God heaped upon Israel throughout the ages, repaid by the people with disobedience and ingratitude. And more, he testified of the killing of the prophets and the Just One sent by God to deliver the people. It was said that he spoke as if an #angel whispered in his ear. Enraged, the people took Stephen to a high place to be stoned. He raised his eyes and saw heaven opening to receive him, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of the Father. As the first stone struck its mark, Stephen spoke his last words. “Into your hands Lord, I commend my spirit.” The blood of this proto-martyr was the first seed of a harvest that would grow to cover the world over." - The Book of Deacons Feast day: December 26 Patron of #altarservers #headaches #horses #italy bricklayers, casket makers, #deacons masons #ststephen #saintstephen #feastday #saintquotes #saintofhteday #catholicart #catholic #catholicsaints #patronsaints

"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice. Indeed, the Lord is near" - Philippians 4:4 Gaudete! Rejoice! The name for the third Sunday of Advent in the church calendar is from the opening word of the traditional introit for today's Mass. The violet vestments and candles of Advent are lightened to rose (not pink) and the readings speak of miracles and coming joy of Christmas.
A Bishop for Mass, and a bake sale after. Many thanks to Bishop Mueggenborg and the ladies of the Altar Society for truly making this a memorable weekend. #holyrosarytacoma #holyrosarybilingualacademy #bishopmueggenborg #catholictacoma #tacoma_wa #northwestcatholic #altarservers
// Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice! // Phil 4:4 ⠀⠀ Happy Gaudete Sunday, the 3rd Sunday of Advent! Gaudete means "rejoice" in Latin and the liturgical color is rose/pink, to symbolize joy amid anticipation, and serves to remind us of the coming celebration of the birth of Christ.

Are we just “tickled pink?” Well, maybe. Join us this Sunday for Gaudete Sunday- one of the two times a year rose colored vestments are worn.

Accept this saving host, O Lord, which we offer you on the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We firmly believe that she was shielded from all stain of sin by Your prevenient grace; may we be freed from all our faults through her holy intercession. Secret prayer in the 1962 Missal for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Virgin Mary, conceived without sin, patroness of our country - pray for us!
“Listen to me, people of all nations, men, women, and children, all of you who bear the Christian name: If any one preach to you something contrary to what the holy Catholic Church has received from the holy apostles and fathers and councils, and has kept down to the present day, do not heed him. Do not receive the serpent’s counsel, as Eve did, to whom it was death. If an angel or an emperor teaches you anything contrary to what you have received, shut your ears.” – St. John of Damascus in his Apologia Against Those Who Decry Holy Images. December 4 is the feast of St. John Damascene (675-749), a Syrian monk and priest who is remembered as a Doctor of the Church. St. John Damascene - pray for us!
No one can ever excel in great things who does not first excel in small." - St. Francis Xavier December 3 is the memorial of St. Francis Xavier. St. Francis Xavier was one of the first men to take vows as a Jesuit in 1534. He then traveled as a missionary through India, SE Asia and Japan. Today St. Francis Xavier is honored as the patron Saint of navigators, missionaries and many locales - from Green Bay, Wisconsin to Goa India.
“If you have God as the center of all your action, you will reach the goal.” - Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
"I need nothing in this world in order to be happy. I only need to see Jesus in heaven, Whom I now see and adore on the altar with the eyes of faith." - St. Dominic Savio
"All should serve charity and charity should service no one, not even her Beloved, of whom she is not the servant, but the spouse, and to whom she owes love, not service." - St Francis de Sales⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #service #servers #altarboys #altarservers #instituteblue #gettingready #sfdsoratory #charity
[Quote of the Week - St John Berchmans] Today is the feast day of Saint John Berchmans, SJ (Dutch: Jan Berchmans)(1599 – 1621). St John was a Jesuit scholastic and is the patron saint of altar servers and youth/students. He said, "If I do not become a saint when I am young, I shall never become one." When he was young he loved being an altar server and was very devout. He decided at the age of 13 that he wanted to become a priest. He then entered the Jesuits when he was 16, studied at the Jesuit College in Malines, and after that went to Rome to study philosophy in 1618. He died in Rome, Italy, in 1621, at the young age of 22, short of being ordained a priest. "Our true worth does not consist in what human beings think of us. What we really are consists in what God knows us to be." He also said. St John Berchmans is a true role model for all youth of today, and his story that proves even our young can desire to be saints - all the more should we pray and guide them with everything we have!
