OUR LITURGY

The prophet Elisha is offered hospitality by a childless

couple. He promises them a son. Paul writes that baptism

is our entrance into a new life empowered by Christ’s

resurrection. When we are dead to sin, we can live for

God. In the Gospel, Jesus teaches us that faith demands

great risks, but it gives even greater rewards.

loss. As of now, we do not know who is coming to St.

Joseph’s, but the Diocese is trying to send the right person

for us-more than just a warm body. So, keep this petition

(that we are sent the right priest for our needs and that he

arrives before the end of the summer) in your prayers and

when I know anything, I will pass the information on. As

always we are grateful to God for the gifts of Fathers

Thomas, Boyle and Liu (who will be with us this

summer) and of course the Deacons and the entire

Parish Staff-please keep them all in your prayers as they

work so hard for the incredible people of St. Joseph’s.

Lee (as he announced last weekend) has completed his

Pastoral Year with us and we already miss him. As we

are reading this letter, he is either on his way to, or

already in The Dominican Republic where he will be

studying Spanish for the next 5 weeks. After that, he

plans to go back up to Maine and spend the rest of the

summer with his family. He will then return to the

Seminary in September where he will complete his last 2

years of priestly training. Keep this fine young man in

your prayers, he will make an excellent priest and each of

us will have had a part in helping him.

Since we did such a great job with Lee, we are to be

blessed with another Pastoral Year Seminarian this

coming September. He is Mr. Lachlan Cameron, and

like Lee, he will be with us for about 10 months, and

learn from the best teachers ever-the beautiful people of

St. Joseph’s. Lachlan will certainly gain a great deal!

Don’t forget the Summer Family Festival, it’s almost

upon us-see details in the bulletin and if you have not

gotten it yet we have a flyer with info being mailed out.

We need all of the help we can get and don’t forget the

Limited Raffle, Basket and Other Raffles, Nightly 50/50

and the great deal of fun-see you there! Also mark your

calendars for Monday Evening Rosary on the Rectory

Lawn every Monday during August.

God bless you always

Fr. Mike

In our Old Testament Reading this weekend, we are

told the story of Elisha’s regular visits to Shunem and how

he would spend time with the woman of influence and her

husband. We see that she decided to build a nice little

room for the prophet with a bed, table, chair and lamp. She

did this so Elisha could be comfortable on his visits, so she

could do something nice for this holy man (and help him in

his mission) and so she could spend more time with him-as

she enjoyed his company and their talks about God. As I

read this passage from the Second Book of Kings, I do not

believe this woman was looking for anything in return for

her kindness (other than what is mentioned above). Yet,

Elisha does more for her and her husband as he offers them

a great gift from God-a child. Indeed her reward was great

because she helped God’s Holy Prophet in his sacred

mission and without counting the cost!

Jesus said, “Whoever receives you receives me, and

whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.” Jesus

is telling the Apostles about their mission and how others

should receive them and what is waiting for those who

respond in the proper way. First, He tells them that those

who receive them because they are prophets will receive

their reward for welcoming them in their holy mission.

And it must be remembered that their mission is even more

intense than Elisha’s, because when they receive the

Apostles in their preaching of the Good News they are

receiving the Son and the Father who sent Him. What a

wonderful thought this is, but now comes the challenge to

us and it is a challenge on several levels.

First, how well do we receive those whom God sends to

preach the Good News? Do we welcome them as we

would welcome Christ, and do we even realize that Christ

is with them? Second, are we open to what they have to

say, or are we closed-minded? Thirdly, how well do we

welcome Christ into our home (the home of our heart and

soul)? Are we truly open to Jesus’ call for a new life with

Him or are we complacent and say to God, not now, or you

could not possibly mean me, that’s someone else’s job!

Remember, Jesus has called us all and is calling us now,

that is why we are members of this Faith Community.

Don’t forget what Jesus says- it was not you who chose me;

it was I who chose you. So now, we are given this 3-fold

challenge on how we are going to revive Jesus and those

who He sends into our lives. How well are we going to do

our part in helping others receive the Good News and Jesus

in their lives? Important questions without a doubt, and

what is our answer as individuals, as a parish, and as the

Church in the Diocese and the world.

This is Fr. Paul’s last weekend with us, and on

Wednesday 12 Noon he reports to St. William the Abbot

Church in Seaford as their new Associate Pastor. We will

all miss him, and we thank him for all the many gifts he

shared with us for 6 wonderful years. Go and make us

proud in Seaford and remember their gain is indeed our

School News

All St. Joseph School Twirlers performed last

Saturday at the annual June recital and did wonderful

jobs. Special congratulation to Shannon Cosgrove,

Teresa Schmitt, Bridget Synder. Stephanie Szwech

and Marie Guidice for winning first place.

Congratulations are also in order for Victoria Massey

and Chelsea Norris who competed at the Regional

Championships in Pennsylvania last weekend and

also earned titles. Congratulations to all!

Stewardship

Both the first reading and the Gospel today speak of

hospitality and welcome. Our ministers of hospitality

are a most visible example of using one’s time and

talents to welcome the people of God. But the

Gospel assures us that all who give even just “a cup

of cold water” to one of His lowliest ones will be

rewarded.

RESPECT LIFE

It’s encouraging to note that a very

prominent and influential person such as

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) is

promoting the use of umbilical cord blood for

stem cells to treat certain diseases. At the Long Island

Blood Services office in Westbury on June 13th, the

Senator announced that he is co-sponsoring a bill calling

for $200 million in federal funds to establish a program

which would set up cord blood collection centers around

the country. (Sam Brownback (R-KS) is the other

sponsor).

Umbilical cord blood, which is routinely discarded

after birth, is rich in stem cells, which can be used to treat

many blood diseases, including leukemia and sickle cell

anemia. The only other source of these cells is bone

marrow, but bone marrow donors are harder to find,

requiring a closer genetic match than the more immature

umbilical cord cells. About 20 blood cord banks operate

now but there are no government standards to oversee

cord blood collection and storage, and many areas are

without close access to the banks. (On June 5th here we

mentioned STEMBANC – 1-877-836-2262).

Sen Schumer said his bill would establish a

nationwide network of cord blood banks to be licensed by

the Food and Drug Administration. The House passed a

similar bill several weeks ago. “Blood centers around the

country that stored cord blood could save tens of

thousands, hundreds of thousands,” Sen Schumer said.

He also said that cord blood banks would save money in

the long run because of the high cost of bone marrow

transplants.

About 175,000 people nationwide – about 6,300 of

them on Long Island – have had a blood disease

diagnosed in the past five years that could be treated by

stem cells from either bone marrow or umbilical cord

blood, Schumer’s office said. Ridgely Ochs, Newsday, June

to everyone throughout the diocese,

whose extraordinary generosity

made this success possible.

Although surpassing this milestone

is important, our goal is for every

family to participate in this

important initiative. Please

remember that it is not too late to

help us. Whatever the size of your

gift it is useful, and keep in mind

that all monies collected by the

directly benefit the vital ministries

of Catholic Charities, religious

education, Catholic schools,

pastoral outreach, formation and

Long Island’s notoriously high cost

of living is especially hard on

senior citizens and people with

disabilities. Many seniors whose

incomes decline after retirement

cannot afford to stay on Long

Island and enjoy the standard of

living to which they have contributed.

Catholic Charities, aided

by the Catholic Ministries Appeal,

provides low-to moderate-income

senior citizens with the opportunity

for safe and affordable housing and

access to a supportive network of

services.

Fifteen housing facilities in Nassau

and Suffolk Counties, totaling more

than 1,263 units, are in operation.

Each facility ensures the social and

spiritual well-being of residents. A

social service coordinator arranges

events and helps residents obtain

services for which they are eligible.

Pastoral care coordinators visit all

housing sites to assist residents.

Weekly on-site medical services are

available, as is access to Catholic

Charities’ Food and Nutrition

Program (FAN).

Our love and best wishes go with Fr Paul as he

leaves for his new home at St William’s in Seaford.

We will certainly miss his smile, his great homilies

and of course his great organizational skills!! Around

the parish offices he is known as the go-to man for

all our computer problems (we actually thought we

were the sorcerer’s apprentices– he being the

sorcerer!). We are considering putting his new phone

number on speed dial!

We all wish Fr Paul God’s blessings that he will find much happiness and

fulfillment in his new parish.

We have found a way to help St Joseph and keep those

boards out of the land fill. Drop them off (in a plastic

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!!!
