On October 13th, 2010,
the Czestochowa Youth Group held a chicken barbeque fundraiser in the
Cafeteria. As the morning of the 13th dawned, members of the Youth
Group arrived in the Cafeteria, ready to begin serving food. We put in a full
day's worth of work and made the event a great success.
on August 15th, 2011, and ending on August 23rd, the next
upcoming World Youth Day is going to be a terrific week. It will be held in
Madrid, Spain, this year, and offers a great chance for our Youth Group to make
a pilgrimage to see Pope Benedict XVI. Youth from all over the world make the
journey to hear his inspiring message and share their faith with others their
own age. This year, we are finally able to go, and we are very excited about
the wonderful opportunity we are being offered. As a first step to getting
there, we definitely needed to do fundraising. Eventually we decided on a
perfect idea offered to us by Bob Kogut, a veteran of the Polish-American
Festival for many years. He suggested that we host a chicken BBQ fundraiser at
the Shrine. We immediately began work.
So, how can we say that
Christ is a King? Where is His royalty? Where is His regalness? What does Jesus
do on the Cross? In the context of His own dying, how does he respond?
Jesus reaches out!
He turns to another and promises him salvation. Christ, our King, give Himself
away totally while he lived on earth. Here surely was the strongest king of
all. He was not out to conquer but to convert. He was not out to rule but to
serve. He was not out to hoard possessions but to give them away. He devoted
all his love, all his time, all his energy to seeking out the sick, the poor,
the lost and the lonely. At the end He even gave his life away for those he
loved, and He loved everybody. Even as he died he was still giving to those who
were receptive. He could not do much for the crowd. They did not really
understand what was happening. Most of them were there merely out of curiosity.
And of course he could give absolutely nothing to the scoffers - the religious
leaders and the soldiers. Nor could He give anything to one of the thieves, for
the poor man`s heart had long since turned to stone. But surprisingly He was
able to enrich the other thief, the one we refer to since as the good thief.
Niech będzie pochwalony Jezus Chrystus.
Drodzy radiosłuchacze i przyjaciele Amerykańskiej Częstochowy,
W ostatnią niedzielę roku kościelnego, cały Kościół obchodzi
uroczystość Chrystusa Króla. Tę uroczystość zapoczątkował Papież Pius XI w 1926
roku, aby przypomnieć ludziom, że żaden z ziemskich królów nie zapewni sprawiedliwości
i pokoju na świecie jak tylko Jezus Chrystus. Jeśli ludzkość chce cieszyć się
pokojem i ładem, to powinna uznać Chrystusa swoim Królem, a Jego Ewangelię
podstawowym prawem, tak motywował Ojciec Św. wprowadzając to święto do Kościoła
powszechnego. Przez tę uroczystość Kościół chce nam przypomnieć, że całe
ziemskie życie Jezusa było przygotowaniem nas na zrozumienie Jego wielkiej
misji królowania na świecie.
