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
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

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

Good Bye Lee
The past ten months we have been blessed with
the presence of Seminarian Lee Descoteaux in our
parish family. Lee has shared with us our joys and
struggles. His compassion, quick wit and
eagerness to help have found him a place in our
hearts. We wish him well in the Dominican
Republic, his next assignment on the road to
priesthood. When he gets back we’re sure he’ll be
speaking Spanish fluently! God has a plan for Lee
and we thank Him for including us in it. Please
keep Lee in your thoughts and prayers as he
follows his calling. Lee, you’re family now, don’t
forget to visit, write, call or e-mail (we’ll take what
we can get!). May our Blessed Mother keep you in
Her loving care
