OUR LITURGY

The blessings of salvation and eternal life begin with

listening to the voice of God. Jesus is the Living Word of

God given to us and guiding us to truth and life. When we

listen to Jesus and follow Him, we are fulfilling the will

of the Father. Following the example of Christ in doing

the will of the Father will make us one with God in glory.

 

FROM THE DESK OF FR. MIKE

“As they were coming down from the mountain

Jesus charged them, ‘Do not tell the vision to

anyone until the Son of Man has been raised from

the dead.”

Matthew’s account of the Transfiguration ends

differently from Mark’s account-who has Jesus

issuing the same command, but then follows up with

the Apostles wondering what does it mean to rise

from the dead. “…so, they kept the matter to

themselves, questioning what rising from the dead

meant.” (Mk 9:10) I don’t know about you, but I

think that if I saw what the Apostles saw on Mt.

Tabor that day I would be wondering about more

than what rising from the dead meant. After all,

think of what they saw-something so spectacular that

it’s story is told in all three of the Synoptic Gospels.

Think of what they experienced, Jesus changes

before their eyes and becomes as white as light with

Moses and Elijah appearing on either side. They see

Jesus speaking to them about what He is about to

undergo in Jerusalem and of course how it will endor

in this case begin! It’s such a wonderful

occurrence, Peter wants to capture the moment and

live in it forever. However, this is not meant to be,

and as soon as Peter speaks the whole moment ends.

If I were James and John, I think I would have been

angry with Peter. However, we really can’t blame

Peter for trying to capture the pure joy of the

moment, but if it happened the way Peter wanted it,

salvation would be too easy and not as meaningful or

universally felt.

With this in mind, we begin to see why every 2nd

Sunday of Lent (and on August 6th, the Feast of the

Transfiguration) we are told about this amazing

event. We are given a glimpse of Easter and the Last

Day and most of us like Peter; want it now, better yet

yesterday! But the eternal life and glory that Jesus

shares with us cannot come until sin and death are

totally conquered. Jesus, Himself, must first endure

suffering, the Cross and the Grave before this can

happen, and likewise we must go through all of these

steps of dying to sin and death. Unless we do this,

we cannot be ready for the great day of the

resurrection to new life through Jesus Christ. This

season of Lent helps us to do this, to die to ourselves

(namely the things that make us selfish, self absorbed,

blind to the needs of others, and keep us

from forgiving and loving as God wants us), and to

prepare us for the great celebration of Easter.

How then do we make the most of this Lenten

Period of which we are already in its 2nd Week?

How can we make these changes in our lives?

That’s easy, all you have to do is just follow the

command of God our Father when His voice comes

out of the cloud and then focus on the same thing the

Apostles saw when it was over. “This is my beloved

Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him.”

“And when the disciples raised their eyes, they saw

no one else but Jesus alone.” Listen to the Father

and listen to His Son and focus on Jesus alone.

Please for God’s sake, for your sake and your

families, for the parish’s sake and that of the world

listen to Jesus and make the most of Lent!

Tomorrow, Feb. 21st, from 4-9 PM the St. Regis

Council of the Knights of Columbus will be

conducting a much needed Blood Drive at the

Council Hall. If you are able to give blood, please

donate a pint and help save the life of another. We

would also like to thank the St. Regis Council for

their donation of $1,722.00. This gift came as a

result of the C&B Charity Drive that the Council ran

by selling the books after Mass and through our

regular parish mailing. Thanks to your generous

purchase of these books, you have not only helped

the various charities of the Knights, but also St.

Joseph’s. We are very blessed to have a local

council that donates to the Church their portion of

the C&B sales, which they could have rightly used

for the council. Once again thank you to the Knights

and to all who supported this very important drive.

Next, weekend at all of the Masses Fr. James M.

Gaughan from Food for the Poor will speak at all of

the Masses on behalf of the good work they do for

hungry people around the world.

As of Jan. 31st, 101 families have pledged $13,

715.00 to this year’s Catholic Ministries Appeal-we

are now only $68,169.00 away from this year’s goal

of $74,800.00. Thank you, so much to all who have

made their pledges up to this report and to all who

have made their pledge after this report-like me! If

you have not made your pledge yet, there is still

plenty of time-so please do your part to help our

brothers and sisters throughout the diocese by

supporting the Catholic Ministries Appeal.

God bless you always.

At Our Lady of Grace Church in West

Babylon Catholic Charities will soon be

opening two group homes for the developmentally

disabled. Each house will become

home to six adults who are

developmentally disabled. Catholic

Charities will administer the homes. This is

one very exciting and wonderful

undertaking among the many, many good

works of Catholic Charities. These two

group homes are the result of cooperation

between the parish and Catholic Charities.

In other words, various members of the

Body of Christ joined together to do

something beautiful for God.

At the same time this is only one

example of the work of the Church on

Long Island. Through Catholic Charities,

the education and pastoral formation arms

of the diocese, our exceptional Seminary of

the Immaculate Conception in Huntington,

and Catholic Health Services (to name but

a few), the Church on Long Island is doing

marvelous work in caring for countless

people. It is because of the good I see

being done by so many agencies and so

many people that lam an ardent supporter,

of the Catholic Ministries Appeal. The

money from the appeal goes to the pastoral

care of people. This appeal has been

renamed and restructured so that none of

the money raised is used for administrative

needs but all of it serves those in need and

benefits local parishes. Twenty-two

percent of the money raised in this appeal

supports the work of Catholic Charities. I

have had the privilege to know and to work

closely with many of the personnel in

Catholic Charities and I have been very

impressed by their competence and their

dedication. Twenty percent of the appeal

fosters the work of Catholic education. Our

Catholic grammar schools and high

schools not only offer a great education but

place that learning in the context of a solid

Catholic tradition filled with Gospel

values. The work of faith formation for

public school pupils also receives funding

from this part of the appeal.

Twenty percent of the appeal goes to

pastoral outreach. This includes initiatives

for respect for all of human life and our

campus ministry programs to bring Christ

to our college students. It also includes our

diocesan mission. My dear friend, Msgr.

John Cervini, is presently serving our

diocesan mission in the Dominican

Republic along with dedicated Sisters and

Peace Corps workers. The Catholic

Ministries Appeal supports our diocesan

mission.

Eighteen percent of the money raised in

this appeal is used for the formation of lay

leaders in our parishes for the future needs

of the Church. I could not run my parish

without the generous assistance of a fine

pastoral staff and an army of gifted

volunteers. The work of the Church on

Long Island is greatly enhanced by the

many people who serve others by the use

of their time and talent. The spiritual,

theological and social justice formation of

these good people assures that we are

living the Christian life in accordance with

the teaching and example of Jesus Christ.

The Catholic Ministries Appeal funds,

these formation efforts. At our seminary in

Huntington we have a rich resource of

trained faculty members who ably prepare

men for the priesthood mid who also bring

the wisdom of good theology to the

diaconate program and to lay men and

women receiving degrees in theology.

And finally, 20 percent of the money

raised in the Catholic Ministries Appeal is

returned to parishes through the increased

rebate worked out last year. This is a

popular part of the appeal for all of us who

are pastors in the diocese.

I mention all these details because I do

not think many people realize what great

good comes from the appeal. I think most

people think the money goes to

bureaucratic needs or to the bishop. It does

not. I am an ardent supporter of the

Catholic Ministries Appeal because I am

convinced that the money is being well

used in very, worthwhile endeavors.

We are living through a very difficult

time in the Church. To me it is important

that we do not lose sight of all the good the

Church does. This happens every day on

both a diocesan and a parish level. While

seeking to renew and reform the Church, I

invite you to join me in supporting the

pastoral work of the Church through the

Catholic Ministries Appeal. I specifically

invite those who have not been aware of

the good of this appeal in the past to

consider making a pledge this year. No

pledge is too small. The more that each of

us makes a contribution to this appeal, the

more the Church will be at its best on Long

Island. Together we can do beautiful things

for God and for one another.

May the Lord give you his peace.

Even Used Inkjet Cartridges,

Have Their Uses

We have found a way to help St Joseph and keep those

complicated pieces of plastic, metal and printed circuit

boards out of the land fill. Drop them off (in a plastic

baggie) when you come to mass. We will send them to a

company who reuses them and gives the parish a bounty for

each. One note, to clear confusion, if it is larger than a fist,

it is not an inkjet cartridge!!!
