OUR LITURGY

Today, Jesus offers a profound invitation: Bring to him all

that burdens you, all that makes your life weary. Jesus

tells us that we do not have to face our troubles alone.

Instead, we discover what Paul preaches to the Romans,

namely, that within each of us dwells the Spirit of God.

Where God is, peace and rest also abide.

world. This is what Abraham Lincoln meant when

he tells his listeners, that it is up to the living to work

for the good of this nation. So that this nation so

conceived in liberty will not perish from the earth.

Something we need to contemplate this weekend as

we celebrate the 229th Birthday of The United States

of America.

These thoughts and what we celebrate go side by

side with our Old Testament and Gospel Readings

for this weekend. Zechariah tells us that promised

king will come riding on a donkey, and that he will

not be like other kings. He will not be a conqueror,

but a king of peace, love, and through him, justice

will be universally established. In Jewish Scripture,

a donkey was regarded as a distinguished and even

majestic creature (remember this how Jesus, comes

into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday-as a sign that He is

the long awaited Messiah, the King of Justice and

Peace). Jesus tells us to share the yoke with Him

for His yoke is easy and His burden light. Again this

is the great promise of the Messiah-that God would

not impose heavy burdens or demands on people,

but would remove them and anything that got in the

way of the people being one with God. Jesus in fact

showed them and us how very approachable the

God of love and mercy is. Jesus did not only

remove the heavy burdens put upon the people by

the Pharisees, He also takes away from us the

burdens put upon us by a sinful world, a world which

does not know Him or would rather ignore Him and

the Gospel. Just as Lincoln wanted to show

Americans what was worth fighting for-so Jesus

shows us what we are all about.

Only 17 days left to the beginning of the 10th

Annual Summer Family Festival so come out and

have a good time. Come enjoy the many bargains,

The Vegas Nights on Weds., Thurs., Fri., and Sat.,

and lots of great food and fun for the whole family!

Don’t forget the evenings of Prayer on the Rectory

Lawn on Monday Evenings during August starting at

7 PM. Bring your Rosaries, Lawn Chair and maybe

a nice desert and have a wonderful time of prayer

and fellowship with your St. Joseph’s Family.

Let us pray; God of love, Father of us all, Open our

hearts to the truth of the Gospel that your peace

may rule in our hearts. Give us the courage to build

a land that serves you in truth and justice. Grant this

through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives

and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God

forever and ever. Amen

Happy Fourth of July!

Fr Mike

“ Four score and seven years ago, our fathers

brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation,

conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition

that “all men are created equal.” Now we are

engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that

nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated,

can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of

that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of it, as

a final resting place for those who died here, that the

nation might live. This we may, in all propriety do.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate-we can

not consecrate-we can not hallow, this ground-The

brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have

hallowed it, far above our poor power to add or

detract. The world will little note, nor long remember

what we say here; while it can never forget what they

did here.

It is rather for us, the living, we here dedicated to

the great task remaining before us-that, from these

honored dead we take increased devotion to that

cause for which they here gave the last full measure

of devotion-that we here highly resolve these dead

shall not have died in vain; that the nation, shall have

a new birth of freedom, and that government of the

people by the people for the people, shall not perish

from the earth.”

On this very weekend 142 years ago, one of the

worst battles of the U.S. Civil War or the War Between

the Sates (or as our Southern Brethren would say-The

War of Northern Aggression), took place at

Gettysburg, PA. This was one of the most important

battles of the war, for if the North (Union) lost, the war

could have been longer and the South (CSA) might

have even won the war. As a result, the South’s

ability to keep the war going was hurt and the South

never really recovered from their losses. When

President Lincoln gave this famous address, he was

not expected to speak at all, but in these few

sentences, he set forth the tone of what the war was

about and how important it was for American

Democracy. Lincoln also conveyed the sadness of

war. War’s terrible loss of life (military and civilian),

and the attitudes that come from war, especially that

one group of people is better or more important than

another. This war’s impact was terrible for the United

States, as it put American against American and in

many cases brother against brother. Even today, the

war affects us, for even though slavery was abolished,

race relations are far from perfect. Even though the

question of succession has been resolved, there are

still feelings of resentment between the North and the

South. Certainly, we have made progress and

healing takes a great deal of time, but more needs to

be done to make peace in America and the whole

RESPECT LIFE

The International Planned Parenthood Federation is

asking supporters to write letters to the editor

“encouraging Pope Benedict XVI to reconsider his

dangerously outdated stances on birth control, abortion

and sexuality in order to help move the Catholic Church

into the 21st century.” The message refers to Benedict’s

“backward views” and alleges that his positions “pose a

terrible danger to the health of millions of women and

girls around the world.”

The pro-abortion group takes the pontiff

to task because “he told Catholics in the U.S.

it would be a sin” to vote for pro-abortion

candidates. International Planned

Parenthood’s suggested letter to the editor

says in part, “The pope must reconsider his

views for the sake of millions of women and

men who will suffer and may die as a result of his

opposition to birth control and condom use, in

particular.”

Another group offering advice to Pope Benedict call

themselves Catholics for a Free Choice. They are

considered a dangerous group because they have shown

nothing but contempt for the Catholic Church and its

teachings on the sanctity of each human being’s life. The

American Life League is asking us to pray for their

conversion; to that end ALL led a pro-life prayer vigil

outside of Planned Parenthood’s national conference at

the Hilton, Washington, D.C., in April.

Joe Starrs. Director of ALL’s Crusade for the Defense

of Our Catholic Church has this to say: “The bottom line

is, you can’t be Catholic and pro-abortion. Individuals

who work for abortion organizations such as Planned

Parenthood play a key role in the killing of

pre-born children, and that is always wrong.”

American Life League News, 5/2005

Prayer Corner: If anyone wishes to be first, he

shall be the last of all and the servant of all.

Whoever receives one child in my name, receives

me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but

the one who sent me.

Heather is one of five siblings who

spent much of their young lives

moving from one welfare motel room

to another before they were placed in

foster homes. When Heather became

pregnant, she was put out of her foster

home and had nowhere to turn for help

until she entered Regina Residence.

She is now the mother of a very active,

eight-month-old daughter she loves

very much. Heather finds that being at

Regina Residence, as a new mother,

gives her the opportunity to give her

baby and herself a warm, safe place to

live and thrive. A bright student,

Heather has written poetry and was a

finalist in this year’s Respect Life

contest. She hopes to receive her high

school diploma in 2005 but that will

not be easy for her with her new

responsibilities. Along with having her

daughter to care for, she needs to

double up on many courses because

she was not always able to attend

school during the years that she lived

in welfare motels. She wants to

continue her education after graduating

and would like to become either a

registered nurse or a fashion designer.

She wants to be able to give her

daughter the privileges and security

she did not have when she was

growing up.

Regina Residence runs a wonderful

program for expectant or new mothers

and their babies. In a meticulously

kept, ten-bedroom house in Merrick,

six new mothers and their babies are

presently living along with three young

women expecting babies. The allfemale

staff, headed by Kathleen Ryan,

program administrator, share the duties

of caring for these residents, 24 hours a

day, making sure they keep all their

appointments and overseeing the teenage

mothers and mothers-to-be as they

cook, clean and do laundry, and learn

the parenting and homemaking skills

they will need once they are on their

own. Every evening they sit down

together to a dinner they have

prepared. This event is one that is

somewhat unusual for many of the

residents; most of whom come from

broken or foster homes and may not

have experienced family life before

coming to Regina Residence.

All the residents and their children

attend the Nassau County BOCES

TAP program (Teenage Parenting

Program) in Seaford, where they

continue their high school education

and learn to become responsible,

competent mothers. If they have earned

their high school diploma, they begin

vocational training to prepare

themselves for a successful future.

There is almost always a waiting list

for this facility in Nassau County run

by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of

Rockville Centre. We must provide a

life for these young girls who have

chosen to keep and love the young life

they now care for.

Heather and her daughter, as well as

the other young mothers, are grateful

for the assistance they receive. This is

only one program of Catholic Charities

that the Catholic Ministries Appeal

helps to fund through your generous

support of the diocese’s annual appeal.

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!!!
