OUR LITURGY

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

at hand.

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

rest.

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

Fr. Mike

“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

neighbor.

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.

What

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

In today’s Gospel, Jesus sends out the disciples to meet the

RESPECT LIFE

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.

They include:

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

independently.

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

Numbers

Goal $74,800.

Pledged 49,053.

Percentage of Goal

65.6 %

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

forgotten?

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.

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!!!
