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
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
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
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!!!
