In today’s reading from Exodus, Moses reminds the
Israelites that if they keep the covenant they will be God’s
special possession. Paul teaches that God proves His love
for us in that, while we were sinners, Christ gave His life
for us. In the Gospel, Jesus summons the Twelve and
sends them out to proclaim that the kingdom of heaven is
are the Chosen People who the Messiah was promised to,
Jesus only had the 3 years for His Public Ministry. So,
He had only so much time to act. First, salvation has to
come to the Chosen People. Then, through them and from
them, to the rest of the world. We see this at the end of
Matthew’s Gospel when Jesus tells the Apostles, before
He ascends into Heaven, “Go out and teach all nations,
baptizing them in The Name of The Father, and of The
Son, and of The Holy Spirit.” And of course, this call is
not just for one people or for one generation, but for the
whole Human Family until Christ comes again.
But now the charge given to the Apostles is now given
to us, the Church who is made one with God not through
the Covenant at Sinai, but through the greater Covenant
made with us through the Body and Blood of Christ
(through His life, death, and resurrection). So, we are on
a Mission, to go out and work in the fields and bring back
not only the Lost Sheep of Israel, but also, the Lost Sheep
from the Church and the Lost Sheep who do not even
know Jesus. As members of the Body of Christ, we
cannot stand idly by and let the sheep be lost. Remember,
the Sheep cannot exist peacefully and without danger if
they do not have a Shepherd. It is the duty of both the
clergy and the laity, out of love for God and the Lost
Sheep, to lead the Sheep back to the Good Shepherd.
And He who was moved with pity for them will do the
This weekend at all of the Masses Maryann and John
Maddock will be speaking about the Diocesan Mission
located in The Dominican Republic. This is part of the
Annual Summer Mission Appeal, and this year the
proceeds will go to support the Mission run by our own
Diocesan Priests, Religious Sisters, and Laity. The people
of St. Joseph’s have always been generous when it comes
to helping those in need-please help again. There will be
a 2nd Collection taken up for the support of the Mission.
If you would like to support the Mission, but can not do
so today, you can drop off your donation at the Rectory
during the week.
Remember, the St. Joseph’s School Golf Outing on
June 27th and the Summer Family Festival in July.
Both are a lot of fun, with great food, and a big help to
support the School and the Parish. We do need volunteers
for the Festival to help us on the many nights and for the
food or games. And we need all of the members of the
parish to come out and enjoy this wonderful week in July.
See you there!
Thanks for all you do for St. Joseph’s
“At the sight of the crowd, Jesus’ heart was moved
with pity for them because they were troubled and
abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd.” There can be
nothing worse for a flock of sheep than to be without a
shepherd! Without a shepherd to watch over them, the
sheep will destroy themselves. They can easily drown,
walk off cliffs, or fall prey to the wolves, or tigers, and
lions, and bears-Oh my! Jesus sees this crowd of people
who are coming to Him, as the Lost Sheep of Israel. The
people who had fallen away because the Pharisees had
made the practice of the faith so impossible that people
believed they could not live it, so why bother? For the Lost
Sheep, God was too far away, and they believed that God
would not listen to them anyway. So Jesus is showing
them a new way-a way not caught up in the 613 Precepts
of the Law but, caught up in the Love of God and ones
Jesus wants to draw the Lost Sheep back to Himself; He
wants back the very people God called to Himself in the
Desert of Sinai. As we read in today’s 1st Reading as God
makes the Covenant with Israel, “Therefore, if you hearken
to my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my special
possession, dearer to me than all other people…You shall
be to me a kingdom of priests, a holy nation.”
Jesus would not let them stay lost, and He wanted them
back so much that He had pity on them and even though He
was tired, still answered their call and shepherded them.
Jesus is so dedicated to them that He calls others to help
Him shepherd the people-the 12 Apostles. Please
understand that this pity that Jesus feels for the Lost Sheep
goes much deeper than the English word pity conveys.
Jesus felt for this people, was more like the meaning behind
the Greek word SPLANCHNIZO-which is more of a
feeling from one’s gut, a profound sense of empathy, being
moved from the very depth of His being.
Christ does not want the House of Israel to be without
the guidance and care of the Shepherd-for He loves them so
much. So, He tells the 12-who we see named in today’s
Gospel- that the harvest is abundant, but the laborers are
few, and that they, like Him, are to go out and announce the
good news and do it without payment. Jesus gives them a
share of His power to cast out demons, and cure disease
and illness. All the Lost Sheep are to be called back-the
rich and the poor, the noble and the common, the free and
the slave, even the sinner and the tax collector.
That’s great for the Lost Sheep of Israel-who are the only
ones Jesus is commanding the Apostles to seek out in
today’s Gospel, but what about us? Well there is good
news for us, because we are also meant to be part of this
call-but not at the time Jesus first sent out the disciples.
Remember, this 1st call is for the Lost Sheep because they

Umbilical cord proposals gain momentum
…..on May 9, 2005, the NYS Assembly
unanimously passed A.3346, legislation
sponsored by Assemblywoman Patricia
Eddington (D-Patchogue). This particular bill
would authorize the State Health Department
to review the research using umbilical cord
blood, and make recommendations to promote its use.
Meanwhile, numerous other measures have been
introduced to promote cord blood research and treatment,
an ethical alternative to embryonic stem cell research.
A.457 by Assemblyman Joseph Lentol (D-Brooklyn)
would require health professionals to advise pregnant
women of their option to donate cord blood, mandate a
public awareness campaign and provide for the
collection, preservation and storage of the blood.
A.7926 by Assemblyman Ivan Lafayette (D-Queens)
would require health professionals to advise pregnant
women of t heir option to donate cord blood.
S.5132 by Senator Kenneth Lavalle (R-Selden) would
establish a task force on the medical use of umbilical cord
blood in the treatment of human disease.
The New York State Catholic Conference supports all
of these measures and urges the state to move forward in
promoting and funding this successful and ethical area of
stem cell research and therapy.
NYS Pro-Life Reporter May 2005
“Blood from umbilical cords—a byproduct of normal
childbirth—is a good source of hematopoietic progenitor
cells (HPCs), the type of stem cells also found in bone
marrow that give rise to various kinds of blood cells.
Transplants of these stem cells have saved the lives of
roughly 20,000 Americans with leukemia, lymphoma,
sickle cell anemia, and several their illnesses in recent
years.”----from a new report on cord blood by the
Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, released
April 14, 2005. The report recommends a centralized
national cord blood banking program.

Catholic Ministries Appeal 2005
Catholic Charities is the largest
beneficiary of the Catholic
Ministries Appeal now underway in
our parishes. Last year Catholic
Charities served over 80,000
people, including the homeless,
those with HIV/AIDS, seniors with
disabilities, single mothers, those
struggling with mental illness,
families without health insurance
and the marginalized.
To fully appreciate the vital work in
which Catholic Charities engages,
we need to examine how individual
lives have been changed. Joan (not
her real name) is a 56-year-old
woman suffering from a mild
mental retardation. While still a
young girl, she lost both of her
parents and was forced to enter a
Suffolk County facility for people
with disabilities. While at the
center, Joan showed she could be
very productive in a number of
different jobs and it was clear that
she had the potential to live more
She moved to the Catholic
Charities’ Christopher Residence
located in Valley Stream, a more
home-like environment. She
continued to work and she was
St. Joseph’s by the
Percentage of Goal
known to be exacting, diligent and
well adjusted, although fairly shy.
Some years later, Joan chose to
move to another Catholic Charities
site in Southold, where she could
be even more independent.
She’s there today, holding down a
job and living a high quality life,
with a great deal of freedom, not
so very different from that of most
Long Island parishioners.
Now, Joan’s story could have
turned out quite differently. After
all, what happens to a young,
developmentally disabled woman
who loses her family? Does she
end up in a cold, impersonal
institution? Is she taken advantage
of and mistreated? Does she
become homeless, hopeless and
Our Church responds to those in
need. The Church says she comes
home, and the place Joan calls
home was built and is sustained by
the generosity of our parishioners.
Each year the challenges facing
Catholic Charities grow.
More than ever before, your support
will help people and families in
need in our neighborhoods.
