OUR LITURGY

Peter makes clear the source of the authority of the Apostles.

Jesus, anointed by God, commissioned the Twelve to preach

to all people. Paul teaches that those who seek Christ will be

glorified with Him when He returns. Today’s Gospel

describes the discovery of the empty tomb, but its significance

is not yet fully understood.

FROM THE DESK OF FR. MIKE

“Then the angel said to the women in reply, “Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking

Jesus the crucified, He is not here, for He has been raise just as He said. Come and see the place

where He lay. Then go quickly and tell His disciples. He has been raised from the dead and He is

going before you to Galilee; there you will see Him.” “And behold, Jesus met them on their way and

greeted them…Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid.”

Today is the great day we have been waiting for, when everything comes into clear focus, as we fully

realize that God can take even death and turn it into eternal life. And it is not just for one day, but every day.

The angel has removed the stone from the tomb and we are filled with great joy, anticipation, and a sense of

abiding peace. JESUS CHRIST HAS RISEN TODAY and with Him the whole Human Race. The whole

Church shouts out Alleluia and we have new hope. Yes, a new hope which makes life totally different,

for we can no longer look at humanity the way we did before the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We have been restored to that which we were meant to be before sin entered into the human family. We

have now shed the black mantle of sin and put on the white garment of the Risen Christ. All we need do is

be open to the Power of Holy Spirit, the power we received in Baptism. We must realize that through the

Risen Christ, we can make a real difference, and we can help others flee from sin and despair and embrace

the new life of Christ. We can indeed do it. We must certainly do it, and with Christ behind us, we can do

anything. So don’t delay, rejoice and be glad and after you celebrate with family and friends, get out and

GET BUSY. Remember we now have 50 Whole days to celebrated Easter.

On behalf of Fathers Paul, Thomas, Mike Boyle, Peter Liu, our Deacons James Altonji, Joseph Califano,

Michael DeBellis, Michael Devenney, Joseph Dougherty, our Seminarian Mr. Lee Descoteaux, and the

entire Parish Staff of Saint Joseph’s, we wish you and your families a very Holy and Happy Easter-may the

peace of the Risen Christ be with you always.

Also, a very special word of thanks to all those who help put together and served at the very festive

breakfast last Saturday in honor of St. Joseph’s Feast Day. Thank you all and God bless you.

Next Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday; we will observe this holy day with a special Holy Hour before the

Blessed Sacrament and the reciting of the chaplet of the Divine Mercy at 3 PM. Also, on that same day at

the 12 Noon Mass we will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Ordination for our dear Father Santiago

(Jimmy) Dineros. He will be the principle celebrant at that Mass and a reception will follow the Mass in

Carew Hall. Happy Anniversary Fr. Dineros, thank you for the many wonderful years of faithful service.

Let us pray, God of unchanging power and light, look with mercy and

favor on your entire Church. Bring lasting salvation to us all, so that the

world may see the fallen lifted up, the old made new, and all things

brought to perfection, through him who is their origin, our Lord Jesus

Christ, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen

HAPPY EASTER

Respect Life

“To kill one human being for the benefit of another

is never morally justifiable”, said Patricia Payne, a

woman suffering from Parkinson’s for 14 years,

adding “to kill the weak in order to benefit the strong is

even more objectionable.” Ms. Payne recently testified

before the Massachusetts Legislature’s newly created

Joint Committee on Economic Development and

Emerging Technologies. She has been selected as one

of a dozen participants in Dr. Michel Levesque’s adult

stem-cell research and therapy program to treat

Parkinson’s.

According to Fr. Tadeusz Pacholczyk (Father Tad),

who studied neuroscience at Yale University and

theology at Gregorian University in Rome, the

Catholic Church supports three of the four ways that

stem-cell research is currently being conducted. They

are: >Adult stem-cell research, involving the growth of

stem cells from the patient’s own tissue or that of

another living donor. >Stem cells developed from

umbilical cord blood or placentas after a delivery is

completed. >Cells from fetal tissue derived from

miscarriages (also called spontaneous abortions), as

long as the parents give informed consent.

The morally unacceptable fourth method is the use

of embryonic stem cells, usually harvested from living

embryos five to seven days after their creation in a test

tube. L.I. Catholic, March 9, 2005

We here in New York State must be on the alert, as both

our Assembly and Senate are planning to introduce

legislation to promote and fund (to the tune of $100

million the first year) embryonic stem cell research.

Because both houses of the Legislature are now actively

discussing the issue, now is the time to make your voice

heard. Contact your Senator and/or your Legislator to

voice your opposition to this plan.

Here’s one address: Hon. --------(your legislator) NYS

Michael Myles, a 5th Grade student at our school, took

foundation to find a cure for children with cancer. The

event calls for volunteers to collect pledges and have their

heads in solidarity with children with cancer—and that’s

just what Michael did! He and his father were one of the

top 5 volunteers who raised the most money. All of St.

Joseph’s School is so proud of you, Michael!

The Office of Youth and Young

Adult Ministry is one of the

areas that receive funding from

the Catholic Ministries Appeal.

It falls under the category of

Education and Formation and

consists of four major program

areas: Parish Youth Ministry

Development, Scouting, CYO

Support and Young Adult

Ministry.

Parish Youth Ministry

Development offers services

including a course on youth

ministry, retreats and prayer

days. It was also through its

efforts that over 550 youth of our

Diocese traveled to Toronto in

2002 to join Pope John Paul II

for World Youth Day.

Scouting has been adopted as

part of the Church’s ministry to

young people. Under the

guidance and support of Youth

and Young Adult Ministry,

activities for Catholic girls and

boys involved in Scouting, such

as Retreats and Pilgrimages are

offered so that young scouts can

grow in wisdom and grace

before God.

The CYO Support program

assists parishes in various areas

such as conducting an annual

conference for coaches that

emphasizes character

development, sportsmanship, and

spirituality as integral

components of youth sports.

CYO of Nassau & Suffolk is

responsible for the overall

running of the CYO sports

program throughout the Diocese,

which includes 27,000 youth

participants in 100 parishes.

Young Adult Ministry refers to

people in their late teens,

twenties, and early thirties,

whether single, married, or

divorced. It provides them

opportunities through programs

and resources to explore ways of

integrating faith into their lives.

Young Adult Ministry develops

leadership that will awaken,

empower, and strengthen others

in their journey of faith. This

past summer a group of 24

culturally diverse young adults

from our diocese participated in

a weeklong service project in the

Hartford, Connecticut area

working as a community of faith.

They served at various settings,

including a shelter for battered

women, a half-way house for the

mentally challenged, and

Catholic Charities Immigration

Services. This year a group of

young adults is planning a

similar experience at various

sites on Long Island.

How fair and lovely is the hope that the Lord gave to the dead when He lay down beside them. Rise

up and come forth and sing praise to Him who has raised you from destruction.

What one sees depends on where one sets up one’s shop. Mine is at the entrance of an empty tomb.

Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible. ~ Corrie ten Boom

***

It Began With One

It started with Jesus,

One drop of His blood,

It started as one drop

And welled to a flood.

His gift made your heart clean.

He made you His own.

Now you are His vessel,

To pass the gift on.

Go double the harvest,

Go spread His love out,

Go bless other people,

Go water the drought.

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!!!
