Inspired by Luke 4:18 & John 1:29

THE FIRST CATHOLIC THANKSGIVING
The first Catholic Thanksgiving on U.S. soil:
Don Juan de Oñate, the Basque leader of the New Mexico expedition, should become a name as familiar as Plymouth founder Captain John Smith or Puritan Governor William Bradford. Juan de Oñate was from a noble Basque Spanish family that had become wealthy in the New World in silver mining. As a young man, Don Juan had led campaigns at his own expense in service to the Crown to pacify Indians near the northern outposts of Mexico. In his late 30s, he married Isabel de Tolosa, the granddaughter of the conquistador Fernando Cortes and Isabel Montezuma, the daughter of the late Aztec emperor. Don Oñate, age 43, and his expedition set out from Santa Barbara, the most northern Spanish outpost in Mexico, on January 26, 1598, under the symbol of the Cross and the authority of the Crown. He aimed to establish a short, direct route due northward through 200 miles of Chihuahuan desert, a trail that would later become part of the famous El Camino Real. The sprawling train he led was reported to spread out for three miles in length. It was a formidable sight: some 500-600 men, 175 of them soldiers, many of them in armor, 83 ox-carts, 26 wagons and carriages, and over 7,000 head of livestock. Three months later, after a long, dangerous trek forging a new trail northward, on April 21, 1598, the exhausted expedition reached the banks of the Rio Grande. For the last five days of the march, the expedition had run out of both food and water, and the colonists had suffered a mind-numbing thirst. Don Oñate, seeing the extreme fatigue on the faces of the people, pro

claimed a week’s rest on the river bank as scouts searched for a suitable place to ford the river and cross into New Mexico, what is the present-day El Paso, Texas. Oñate ordered a temporary church to be constructed with a nave large enough to hold the entire camp. Under those boughs, on April 30, 1598, a Mass of Thanksgiving was said on the feast day of the Ascension of Our Lord, the Te Deum was sung and the Franciscans celebrated a solemn high Mass, the first Thanksgiving celebration in our lands. Don Juan de Oñate, took formal possession of the new land, called New Mexico: “In the name of the most Holy Trinity … I take possession of this whole land this April 30, 1598, in honor of Our Lord Jesus Christ, on this day of the Ascension of Our Lord ….” Then, after the Mass, the Franciscan priests blessed the food on tables abundant with fish, ducks and geese, and the 600-strong expedition of soldiers and colonists feasted. The celebration ended with a play enacting scenes of the native Indians hearing the first words of the Catholic Faith and receiving the Sacrament of Baptism. This celebration in El Paso in actually was the first American Thanksgiving. Both colonies – New England and New Mexico - were not the United States at that time. For a short while, New England could claim that theirs was our first Thanksgiving feast, but the moment Texas entered the Union as a part of the American federation, this priority of the Puritan celebration can be contested. This First Thanksgiving included the MASS, a feast, and other celebrations of the Spanish Franciscan missionaries and members of Don Juan de Oñate’s expedition in
1598 and actually predates our first Thanksgiving in 1621 at Plymouth Rock, which took place 23 years later.

LA PRIMERA ACCIÓN DE GRACIAS CATÓLICA
La primera Acción de Gracias Católica en la tierra de EE.UU.: Don Juan de Oñate, el líder Vasco de la expedición de Nuevo México, debe llegar a ser tan familiar como lo de Capitán John Smith, el fundador de Plymouth o lo del gobernador Puritano William Bradford. Juan de Oñate era de una familia noble Vascongada que se hizo rica en el Nuevo Mundo por la industria minera de plata. En su juventud, Don Juan había dirigido a su propio costo, las campañas en servicio al rey para pacificar a los indios cerca de los puestos en el norte de México. En los fines de su 30 años, él se casó a Isabel de Tolosa, la nieta del conquistador Fernando Cortes e Isabel Montezuma, la hija del difunto emperador azteca. A los 43 años Don Oñate y su expedición salieron de Santa Bárbara, el puesto españolo más norteño en México, el 26 de enero de 1598, bajo el símbolo de la cruz y autoridad del Rey. Él apiró establecer una ruta corta y directa hacia el norte a través de 200 millas del desierto Chihuahua, un rastro que más adelante fue parte del famoso Camino Real. La caravana que él llevó fue de tres millas en longitud. Era una vista formidable: unos 500-600 hombres, 175 de ellos soldados, muchos de ellos en armadura, 83 carretas tirada por bueyes, 26 vagones y carros, y sobre 7,000 ganadería. Tres meses más tarde, el 21 de abril de 1598, después de un viaje largo y peligroso para hacer una a nueva ruta hacia el norte, la expedición agotada alcanzó los bancos del Río Grande. Para los últimos cinco días del marzo, la expedición había funcionado sin el alimento y el agua, y los colonizadores habían sufrido una sed entumeciendo de la mente. Don Oñate, viendo la fatiga extrema en las caras de la gente, proclamó una semana del descanso en la orilla del río. Mien

tras, los exploradores lograron encontrar un lugar conveniente para cruzar el río. Entraron Nuevo México al punto que hoy es El Paso, Tejas. Oñate ordenó que se construyeron una iglesia temporal con un nave bastante grande para acomodar toda la gente. El 30 de abril de 1598, una Misa de la Acción de Gracias fue celebrado por la Fiesta de la Ascensión de Nuestro Señor, el Te Deum fue cantada. Los franciscanos celebraron una Misa solemne, la primera celebración de la Acción de Gracias en nuestras tierras. Don Juan de Oñate, tomó posesión formal de la nueva tierra, llamada Nuevo México diciendo: “En nombre de la Santísima Trinidad… tomo posesión de esta tierra entera este día, el 30 de abril de 1598, en honor de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, en este día de la Ascensión de Nuestro Señor.” Entonces, después de la Misa, los sacerdotes franciscanos bendijeron el alimento abundante en las mesas: los pescados, los patos y los gansos. Los 600 soldados y los colonos banquetearon. La celebración terminó con una drama que decretaba escenas de los indios nativos que oían las primeras palabras de la fe católica y que recibían el sacramento del bautismo. Esta celebración en El Paso en realidad era la primera Acción de Gracias Americana. Ambas colonias - Nueva Inglaterra y Nuevo México - no eran de Los Estados Unidos en aquel momento. Por un tiempo breve, Nueva Inglaterra podría decir que el suyo era nuestro primera fiesta de Acción de Gracias, pero el momento que Tejas entró en la Unión como parte de la federación americana, esta prioridad del Puritano se pudiera disputar.. Esta primera Acción de Gracias incluyó la Misa, una fiesta, y otras celebraciones de los misionarios Franciscanos españoles y los miembros de la expedición de Don Juan de Oñate tomó lugar en 1598 y precede realmente nuestra primera Acción de Gracias en 1621 en Plymouth Rock, que ocurrió 23 años más adelante.

Bendición de la Cena del Día de Acción de Gracias
(Puedes encender las velas de la mesa, si están presente)

Leader: "It is good to give thanks to the LORD, for His love endures forever." (Psalm 136;1) Loving Father, before we share this Thanksgiving Day Dinner, we pause to remember to thank You. It is You who have given each of us life and it is You who have given us the privilege of living in a wonderful, beautiful country. Thank you for this Thanksgiving Day meal which is set before us. Bless those who have prepared it. Bless those, too, who do not have enough to eat today and make us generous in our gifts to them throughout the year. Like St. Theresa of Liseaux keep us aware of the Gospel. Like Blessed John Paul the Great, help us to live each day in your grace. Like St. Francis of Assisi make us grateful for everything we have. Together: "Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty through Christ, Our Lord. Amen."

Líder: "Den gracias al SEÑOR, porque Él es bueno, porque su amor perdura para siempre." (Salmo 136;1) Padre de amor, antes de compartir esta cena del Día de Acción de Gracias, hacemos una pausa para recordar a ti las gracias. Tu has dado a cada uno de nosotros la vida y eres tú que nos ha dado el privilegio de vivir en un país maravilloso y hermoso. Gracias por esta comida de Acción de Gracias que comemos. Bendice a los que lo han preparado. Bendice a los que no tienen lo suficiente para comer hoy y nos hace generosos en nuestros regalos a lo largo del año. Como Santa Teresa de Liseaux mantenernos al tanto del Evangelio. Como beato Juan Pablo el Grande, nos ayude a vivir cada día en tu gracia. Como San Francisco de Asís nos hace agradecidos por todo lo que tenemos. Juntos: "Bendícenos, Señor y bendice estos alimentos que de tu generosidad vamos a recibir, por Jesucristo, Nuestro Señor. Amén."s

How would you spend your day if you knew it was the last day you would spend on earth? Undoubtedly, it would not be a normal day. The point of today’s Gospel reading is that the end-time is always imminent. The good steward remains prayerfully alert, ready to give an accounting; and living each day in the awareness of the coming judgment and salvation.. How do we exercise stewardship over our daily lives? Are we prepared to give an accounting? How will we allow Christ to work in and through us to prepare for the reconciliation of the heavens and the earth?

Plenary Indulgence for the Year of Faith
As we continue to celebrate this "Year of Faith," we have the opportunity to receive a Plenary Indulgence, which through the mercy of God, frees an individual (living or dead) from the temporal punishment of sin. The Plenary Indulgence is gained by performing the indulgenced work and fulfilling three conditions--sacramental confession, eucharistic communion, and prayers (an Our Father and Hail Mary) for the Pope's intentions. One can obtain a Plenary Indulgence during this "Year of Faith" by: --visiting the church of Baptism and renewing one's baptismal promises; --visiting one of the 'pilgrimage' churches in the Diocese and participating in a sacred celebration or spending time in prayer or pious meditation concluding with the recitation of the Our Father, the Profession of Faith and invocations to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Apostles and patron saints:   the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus in Joliet (Cathedral is opened from 6 am to 12:30 pm Monday - Friday, 7 am to 6 pm on Saturday, and 7 am to noon; 6 pm to 8 pm on Sunday) and Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Bourbannais (the church is opened from 8 am to 3 pm during the week, 8 am until after the 4:30 pm Mass on Saturday, and 8 am to 1 pm on Sunday),

--attending a Holy Mission and being present for three homilies, --attending at least three lessons on the Acts of the Councils, or the articles of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in church or any other suitable location. This information can be found on the Diocesan 'Year of Faith' website, www.dioceseofjoliet.org

“Taps”
Paul Turner When Catholics celebrate the funeral of a veteran of the U.S. armed forces, they may hear “Taps” played at the graveside. Although the practice does not appear in the official liturgical book, the custom is honored throughout the United States. “Taps” was composed in 1862 as a bugler’s call commanding troops at the end of the day to extinguish their lights and prepare to sleep. The 24-note tune was adopted by both Union and Confederate forces. Because of the melody’s connotations with sleep, buglers soon started playing it for military funerals. The celebration of a Catholic funeral extends over three stages-a vigil service at the church, funeral parlor, or home; the funeral Mass at the church; and the burial service at the grave. Whenever military honors are appropriate, they are observed near the conclusion of the graveside service; a flag is presented to mourners, guns are fired into the air, and “Taps” is played. The presider at the graveside usually conducts the Catholic service first, pausing near the end for these military honors. The presider may then regain the leadership role by dismissing the people afterward. “Taps” was composed for a bugle, which explains why is employs only four pitches. Bugles do not have the same range as trumpets. Nonetheless, “Taps” can be played effectively on a trumpet. Some organizations providing this service do not have musicians available to play “Taps,” so mourners may actually hear a recording from a trumpet-shaped device, held to the lips of a uniformed “bugler.” The Catholic liturgy always favors live music, not prerecorded music. Anyone who can play the four pitches of taps would give fitting tribute to a faith-filled veteran by offering to perform it live for funerals.

The Traveling Madonna of St. John the Baptist
The Holy Rosary is one of the many great gifts given to us by our Blessed Mother. In it, we meditate on the life of Jesus and our salvation. The Traveling Madonna is a ministry which seeks to promote the Holy Rosary. In John 19:27, Jesus said to John “Behold, thy Mother” and from that hour the apostle took her to his home. Let us follow the example of John and open our doors to Mary. We are looking for families to accept the Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary into their home for one week. This will continue throughout the year. The only request is that you keep her in a very special place in your home. A Knight will bring the statue to your home and if desired, pray the Rosary with your family. A Knight will return the following Saturday to pick up the statue. If you are interested in becoming a host of the Traveling Madonna please contact: Vince Kelley 630-293-4541 Knights of Columbus Father McGivney Council #8002 [email protected]

A THANK YOU LETTER FROM WATERLEAF Thanks to your generosity, we continue to see God working through us at Waterleaf. We are so grateful for all the generous gifts we receive from our donors. One of the many clients we have recently helped is a young woman directed to us by an area deacon. She had confided in him that she was pregnant and had no choice but to abort. He referred her to us, the team performed a pregnancy test, researched resources and options and called to check on her. She sadly admitted that she had no medical insurance and had made an abortion appointment. We prayed, but were broken hearted for her. She had a change of heart and cancelled her appointment with Planned Parenthood. Days after she decided to keep the baby, she got a call from Veteran's Assistance notifying her that her pregnancy was indeed covered by the VA! She is keeping the baby and has a doctor's appointment and continues to receive our support. We have since found out that she is carrying twins and is due on December 25th! What a blessing! Thank you so much for your recent donation of $400.00! We hope you enjoyed reading the Newsletter and we so appreciate your support! It is through the generosity of friends like you that we are able to help so many young women choose life fort heir babies! Please continue to pray for our ministry as we continue to pray for you! In faith, Sheryl Finn Director of Marketing & Development

St. John the Baptist School News
We are so blessed at SJB to have an amazing teaching staff. However, many of us only really know the teachers we come in direct contact with through our kids. We have created a series called "In the Spotlight" to help introduce our teachers to our entire school and parish community. The teachers answered a series of questions about themselves. We have included photos as well to assist all in recognizing our educators at school events. We hope you enjoy this information!

In the Spotlight My name is Gina Baumann. I’m happy to be back at St. John the Baptist School for my second year of teaching fourth grade! Working here has been a very positive experience for me; the students are wellbehaved and eager to learn, and the staff has been tremendously supportive and helpful. Teaching is a career change for me. I worked in the field of Marketing, before I stayed home to raise my four children. I later pursued my passion for teaching by earning a degree from National Louis University. I gained experience by completing long-term maternity leaves in the Glen Ellyn and Lombard school districts before arriving at St. John’s. Upon joining the St. John’s team, I experienced a true sense of family, which included the staff, the parents, and of course, the blessed children. My husband, Tom, and I live in Wheaton, along with our four children, Anneliese, Eliza, Robert, and Melanie. We attend St. Petronille Parish in Glen Ellyn, where I taught religious education classes. I’m anticipating another successful year of teaching and sharing my faith in God at St. John the Baptist School.
