OUR LITURGY

Speaking through Isaiah, God tells of the power of His

word to do His will upon the earth. Through a parable,

Jesus teaches the crowd that the word of God is planted in

the rich soil of the faithful so as to bear abundant fruit.

Paul writes that all of creation awaits the abundant harvest

of freedom that will shine forth in the lives of God’s

children.

Mark your calendars for the Monday Evenings of

Prayer and Fellowship on the Rectory Lawn at 7 PM.

Bring your Rosaries, a Lawn Chair, and perhaps a

nice dessert to share with your parish family. See

you there!

Special thanks to Mr. Thomas Waring for

donating his time and talents to the parish by putting

up the new wooden fence by the School Yard,

Religious Education, and Parish Outreach. Thanks,

to the whole Waring family for all they do for St.

Joseph’s. This certainly one of the ways that we get

things done here, and that’s what makes St. Joseph’s

such a special place.

Let us close with these questions: In terms of

finding God, when has your life seemed filled with

particularly good soil? How did you respond?

When has it seem particularly rocky? How did

you respond?

God Bless you always.

Here we are just 2 weeks out of school, and we are

being taught again, but this time the teacher is Jesusnot

bad. The Divine Teacher is speaking directly to

our hearts in the form of Parables. God’s word for

those who will listen will accomplish all that God

wants it to achieve, as we see in the reading from

Isaiah. “…so shall my word be that goes forth from my

mouth; my word shall not return to me void, but shall

do my will, achieving the end for which I sent it.”

Perhaps there are times you have asked, like the

disciples, why can’t Jesus speak plainly? Why does He

speak in Parables? Well it all goes to what God

intends for His word, or better yet, who God intends to

act upon His word! For anyone who has ears should

listen and realize that Jesus’ Parables are more than

just interesting stories, for they contain so much more.

For the parables reveal the Reign of God as a mystery,

and God’s mysteries are not to be explained in prose

that will render them commonplace and be ignored by

people, nor are they to be in such esoteric language

that they are too hard to understand. No, the parable

invites us to see God in the familiar rounds of daily

life, as in the sowing of seeds, and to contemplate

quietly until the commonplace awakens our minds and

hearts to the wonder of the mystery and deepen our

understanding.

Now the parables are explained to the disciples (and

in turn us) because they (and hopefully us) have

already accepted the invitation to follow Jesus. With

this acceptance, comes the gift of grace that enables

them (us) to explore and understand the deeper

significance-“blessed are your eyes because they see,

and your ears because they hear.”

Just 10 More Days Until the 10th Summer Family

Festival, and we certainly would like to thank the

many local businesses that donated prizes, services, or

sponsored booths, rides, and even whole nights. They

have helped us a great deal in making the Festival a

success. Please thank them for their generous gift to

St. Joseph’s by patronizing them. Thanks, to all who

have volunteered to help at the Festival-we could not

do it without you! There are still Limited Raffle

Tickets available and don’t forget the many Basket

Raffles and so much more… Come out and support

the Festival/ St. Joseph’s and come out and have a

good time. Come early and come often! Remember

the Festival is one of the main fund/fun raisers for the

Parish-so we need your help.

RESPECT LIFE

On June 22nd the New York State Senate voted 34 to

27 in favor of bill number A.116/S.3661 which would

allow the unfettered distribution of “emergency

contraception” to any female regardless of age or health

condition and without a prescription. These high-dose

birth control pills not only prevent conception, but can act

as an abortifacient. As of this writing the bill has not yet

been sent to the Governor’s office for his signature.

The Respect Life Office of the Diocese of

Rockville Centre is requesting that everyone

contact Governor Pataki and urge him to veto

bill number A.116/S.3661.

Contact Governor Pataki: E-mail –

www.state.ny.us/governor. Click “contact the

Governor” on left menu. Or you may telephone him at:

518-474-8390. Write the Governor at: Executive

Chamber, State Capitol, 2nd floor, Albany NY 12223.

Please send a copy of your correspondence to: Richard

Platkin, Esq., Counsel to the Governor.

Following are a few “talking points” for when you

speak or write to the Governor:

*In 2004 the FDA ruled that the morning-after pill should

not be distributed without a prescription and declined a

request to allow the drugs to be soldover the counter.

Why should the NYS legislature encourage greater access

to the drugs than the FDA?

*Emergency contraceptives can either prevent

fertilization or destroy an already fertilized egg, thereby

causing, in effect, an early abortion.

*The bill will undermine families by allowing school

nurses and drugstore pharmacists to dispense these drugs

without parental approval or guidance. Any 14-year-old

child could obtain the pills without a physician’s exam or

oversight.

Marketing these drugs as “contraception” only is false

advertising and denies women informed consent. Women

deserve to know that these pills can either prevent

pregnancy or destroy a developing embryo.

Catholic Ministries Appeal 2005

Like the veteran star of school

plays that she is, 11-year-old

Soraya Navia of St. Brigid’s in

Westbury spoke eloquently at

Masses last weekend on behalf of

the Catholic Ministries Appeal.

Many in the diocese would

instantly recognize Soraya. As the

“Poster girl” for the Appeal, her

picture, beaming with enthusiasm,

appears on the cover of all Appeal

brochures. With confidence and

feeling, she reminded the

congregation of all the good that’s

accomplished by the Catholic

Ministries Appeal, including the

ministries of Catholic Charities,

Catholic education, priestly

formation and local parish aid. In

particular, she encouraged support

for seniors, poor children and,

close to home, much-needed

repairs at St. Brigid’s. St. Brigid’s

is still embarking on an all-out

effort to reach and surpass its

Appeal goal. If the enthusiastic

applause that greeted Soraya’s

superb performance is any

indication, St. Brigid’s campaign

is sure to succeed.

St. Joseph’s by the

Numbers

Goal $74,800.

Pledged 50,413.

Percentage of Goal

67.4 %

Soraya herself is a perfect

example of the excellence our

Catholic schools foster. A student

at St. Brigid’s elementary school,

she will be entering the sixth

grade in September. Her dream,

not surprisingly, is a career in the

performing arts. Her father, a

college professor, and her mother,

a teacher and highly regarded

professional translator, knew the

value of a top notch education and

chose the Catholic school system,

not only for Soraya, but also for

her three older sisters, now all

enjoying successful careers.

Your support of the Catholic

Ministries Appeal helps the many

worthwhile programs that Soraya

spoke of to continue, so that the

poorest and most vulnerable on

Long Island can live better lives.

Please give as generously as you

can to the Appeal. You can

Appeal by calling 516-379-5210

Please Help

Evan McAteer ‘s (a kindergarten student at St Joseph’s) aunt, Allison

McAteer, is very sick. She is an elementary Teacher Assistant and not married.

Unfortunately, she also has no medical insurance coverage. Financially she just

makes ends meet. She has two neurological disorders, Syringomyelia and Chiari

Malformation. Surgery is necessary to treat this condition. The procedure involves

removing a piece of the skull in the back of the head near the bottom (craniectomy).

Having to go through this ordeal is difficult enough but the financial burden that it

is creating is almost too much to bear.

Evan’s family is trying to raise funds to help defray some of her medical

expenses. They would appreciate any donation which will go toward the cost of her

medical care. They are very concerned and hope that you will keep her and the

family in your prayers.

Any donations should be made directly to Katherine Yamaguchi (her sister in

law) and dropped off either at the church or rectory. You may also mail it directly to

Katherine Yamaguchi at 38 West Court Drive, Centereach, NY 11720

Sincerely,

The McAteer Family

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!!!
