OUR LITURGY

The prophet Jeremiah is aware that his enemies are

powerful and many. He places his complete trust in God

and sings praise to him. In the Gospel, Jesus tells the

Apostles not to be afraid; their Father in heaven is

watching over them. Even those who can kill the body

cannot kill the soul. Paul teaches that God’s grace comes

to us through Jesus Christ.

Summer Family Festival. We will all miss him and we

wish him very well in his new assignment at Saint

William the Abbot in Seaford. I am extremely grateful

to Fr. Paul for all of his help and support during my

first two years here as Pastor. I would have been lost

with out him as he kept me informed as to how things

were done in the past and what was the long range

plans of Msgr. Midura and the other Pastors that came

before me. I personally will miss Fr. Butler, because in

this past 2 years we have become fast friends, and

while our friendship will continue, it will not be the

same as seeing him almost everyday and our getting

into one of our usual routines-which some of you have

witnessed on your visits to the rectory.

At present, I do not yet know who is coming to St.

Joseph’s. It appears that there were more assignments

than there were priests to fill them. This brings the

Vocation Shortage right to our door. I have been

informed that we will get a replacement for Fr. Butler,

but they are not certain when. So, it is quite possible

that we will have to go most of the summer without a

much-needed priest for our parish. But, I am happy to

announce our dear Fr. Peter Liu will be retuning to help

us for the summer months so that is a bright light for

us. Please pray for vocations to the priesthood-you can

now see the results when there are not enough priests to

go around. In spite of this, we are going to make St.

Joseph’s the best parish in the diocese. And the only

way to do this is for all of us to work together. That

means we all have to do our part and pitch in wherever

and whenever we can. I have asked our Deacons to take

on a more visible role and help when the priests cannot

be present. They have overwhelmingly agreed and I

thank God for them every day. This will also require

more Lay Leaders to come forward and carryout some

of the task that we have always relied on the clergy to

do (of a non-sacramental nature of course). When we

all work together, we will build the parish that we want

and set the standard for others to follow. Thank you,

because without you the Pastoral Staff would never be

able to do what we are called to do. And I thank God

every day for the wonderful gift of being the Pastor of

St. Joseph’s Parish.

On behalf of the Priests, Deacons, our Seminarian

Lee and the entire Pastoral Staff of St. Joseph’s we

wish to all of our fathers,

A VERY HAPPY AND BLESSED FATHER’S DAY!

God bless you for all you do for St. Joseph’s

Fr. Mike

What are you afraid of? Who are you afraid of?

Most of us are afraid of something-maybe its spiders,

snakes, mice, bugs, flying lighting and thunder or

sickness. What we fear or how we fear differs from

person to person, and sometimes it makes perfect sense

to be afraid and sometimes its something just in our

minds. Fear is a normal part of human life, and we must

remember that God gave us some fears so we wouldn’t

take steps that would hurt or even kill us.

Who are we afraid of is like what we are afraid of -

it differs from person to person. But now the question is

put to us do we allow the people we fear get in our way

from living out our faith. That is what Jesus is asking the

12 when He is sending them out, and tells them not to be

afraid, because God will be with them on their mission to

spread the Good News. Fear no one, because you are

more important to God than anything. God cares so

much about you that even the hairs on your head are

counted-that’s how well He knows and loves you. And

if God cares so much even for sparrows-who are sold,

for almost nothing- how much more will He care for you

and be for you.

We see this in our reading from the Prophet Jeremiah,

who is lamenting his prophetic mission-as people are

denouncing him from all sides. Even his friends are

looking for ways to betray him. Faced with this the

prophet is complaining to God, yet in the mid stream of

his complaint Jeremiah realizes that God is with him and

no matter what happens, God would be at his side and

defend him. Jesus is telling us the same thing in today’s

Gospel when He tells us not to allow anyone to scare you

or threaten you so you will lose your faith, or keep you

from spreading your faith with others. Don’t let anyone

tell you that your faith is useless or that God does not

care about you, because He does.

We must not let this type of person get a strong hold

on us or destroy our confidence in God. When these

people come into your life, be like Jeremiah and fight off

the temptation to give it all up. How do we do this? It’s

really quite easy, even when it seems very bleak. Just

turn to the greatest gift that God has given to humanity,

Jesus Christ. Allow Christ to be there for you and we

truly will not be afraid-at least when it comes to our

faith, its practice, and our sharing it. Now, as for a fear

of spiders, mice, tigers and lions and bears, well that’s up

to you and maybe the Wizard of Oz.

Please join us next Sunday after the 12 Noon Mass

for a farewell reception for Fr. Butler. Fr. Paul has

been here at St. Joseph’s for 6 years and has shared with

us many great gifts, his wonderful sense of humor, his

love of theater, and how to make a great profit off the

RESPECT LIFE

With the dramatic announcement by South

Korean scientists that they have created 11

new varieties of stem cells from cloned

human embryos, supporters and detractors

are grappling with the sudden realization that

a once-theoretical technology has burst into

the realm of reality. It has sharpened the debates over

what some say is an unjust destruction of future lives.

Conservative groups have vehemently opposed such

research, arguing that the destruction of human embryos,

however early in their development, cannot be morally

justified – even if the intent is to save another life.

As the stakes in embryonic stem cell research rise, so too

does the potential for confusion about the scientific

process. Scientists, for instance, prefer the term “somatic

cell nuclear transfer” to describe the process of creating

stem cells from cloned human embryos, a technique

sometimes known as “therapeutic cloning”, to underscore

its goal. Some bioethicists, however, dislike that term,

(therapeutic cloning), reasoning that it may mislead

volunteer egg donors into believing they will derive a

benefit from what is still basic research.

Semantics aside, what did the South Korean researchers

really do? The scientists first collected skin samples from

patients and added the DNA from an individual cell to a

donated egg cleared of its own nucleus (the part which

would eventually become a human). Researchers have

learned how to trick this cell into dividing as though it

has been fertilized by sperm, but stop the process at an

early embryonic stage to extract the stem cells. The early

embryo, sometimes called a blastocyst, is destroyed, but

its stem cells may live on in a laboratory setting.

The technique works as follows:

DNA from adult cell injected into egg with no nucleus;

Egg begins dividing, forming a mass of cells; After 5

days it forms a blastocyst, a hollow embryonic ball of

cells; Stem cells are harvested, embryo destroyed
