OUR LITURGY

In today.s first reading, Solomon asks for an

understanding heart that he might distinguish right from

wrong and govern the people justly. God is pleased with

his request. In the Gospel, Jesus describes heaven as a

treasure or a pearl of great price. Paul reminds the

Romans that God.s love calls them to conform to the

image of Christ.

that all could be saved.

But in order for us to be saved, we must accept

salvation, we must chose to accept God.s gifts

and put them into practice. So now the question

put before us is two-fold (meaning that) not only

are we going to be asked what gifts we will desire,

but also how open will we be to seeking and

accepting the Kingdom of God? How do we keep

open to God.s Kingdom? It.s not as hard as it may

seem. All we have to do is try to see God in

others, work for the good of others and be

instruments of God.s peace, mercy, forgiveness,

and love. Of course we do not do this alone we

do it through the grace of the Holy Spirit and

through all of us working together as Christ Living

Body, The Church!

Tonight (Sunday) is the last day of Summer

Family Festival and what a great time we have

had so far! Tonight is the grand drawing of the

Limited Raffle and its grand prize of $5,000.

There are of course the other raffles and the

Football Pool, which was a big hit last year.

That.s right we have been selling the Football Pool

Envelopes at the Festival and will continue to sell

them for this year.s NFL Season. They are still

the low price of only $5 an envelope. Buy as

many as you like, for the more, you buy the

greater the chances of winning and you help

St. Joseph.s.

Don.t forget the Parish Blood Drive on

Monday, August 8th in Carew Hall. Also, don.t

forget the Monday Evenings of Prayer on the

Rectory Lawn at 7 PM. This will happen rain or

shine, for in the event of rain, we will move into

the Church and fellowship will happen afterward in

the Church Lobby. So, bring your lawn chair,

some dessert and join your parish family for

prayer and friendship!

Let us close with these reflection questions:

The Kingdom of Heaven is like.Create your own

parable: What would you say the kingdom of

heaven is like? What have you asked God for in

your life? How has God answered your prayer?

What are you asking for now?

God bless you always

Fr. Mike

Most of us have heard the story of Aladdin and

his magic lamp, and all he had to do was rub it and

the Genie would come out of it and grant him 3

wishes. I am sure there are times you have

wondered what you would ask for if you were given

the same opportunity. However, you must

remember that you can.t make your third wish,

three more wishes. In today.s first reading form

the First Book of Kings, we see something far

greater than Aladdin and his lamp! We see the

Lord of all things offering His servant Solomon one

wish, but not so much a wish as a gift that God the

Father is willing to bestow upon His child Solomon.

What would you ask of God? What choice would

you make? Would it be long life and health, or

perhaps unlimited wealth and security or something

else? What would it be? Well believe it or not, God

asks us this question every day-What can I give

you, but it can only be what is truly good for you,

those who you love, and the Church/world as a

whole. So now, what gift would you ask God to

bestow on you? I do believe that the

answer to that question is indeed different for each

of us, and it would depend on our situation and our

state in life, and what God has called us to do in

this life. It is indeed something to think about,

however, in our pondering we should remember the

answer that Solomon gave God and perhaps use it

as a guide.

Solomon did not ask for long life or riches, no,

he asked God for the Wisdom, Strength, and

Knowledge to rule over God.s people. He truly

wants to do what is right for the people, and he

wants to do what God wants done. God greatly

credits Solomon for this and gives him so much

wisdom that the only one who surpasses him is

none other than our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This week we again see the Wisdom of Christ

coming out as we see another Parable-this week.s

deal with what the Kingdom of God can be

compared to. The examples given show us how we

should prize and seek the Kingdom over all things.

The Kingdom is like a great catch for a fisherman,

or a pearl of great price for a merchant, or

finding a buried treasure in a field that you will

sell everything you own to buy this field and its

treasure. Jesus tells us, this is what we must do, or

we might find ourselves on the wrong path and not

being counted among the righteous. We must

remember that God sent Jesus into the world so

The Religious Ed Office is closed for the summer we will

reopen on August 22nd.

Since our office is closed during the summer months we

would like to take this opportunity to welcome the new

families who will be moving into our parish and inform

you about our Religious Education program. Each week

we will give you a heads up on the different levels of our

Program.

Sacrament Readiness I

This program is designed for the children who have not

yet received any formal religious instruction and have

passed the age of seven. The children will be introduced

to their faith. This is the first part of a two-year program

that will prepare the children to receive the Sacraments of

Reconciliation and Eucharist. All children will visit with

one of the priests and recite their prayers. They will not

be placed in Sacrament Readiness II until this is done.

Sacrament Readiness II

This is the second year following the completion of

Sacrament Readiness I. The children will receive the

Sacrament of Reconciliation in mid-year and First

Eucharist at the end of the term. After completion of

this level they will be placed in an appropriate class to

prepare for Sacrament of Confirmation.

RESPECT LIFE

In his very enlightening article in the LI Catholic of

July 13th, George Weigel, an author and columnist tuned

in to the rights and wrongs of the stem cell debate,

offered this: .If your representative is on the list of those

who voted to provide federal funding for embryodestructive

stem cell research, even though the U.S.

Conference of Catholic Bishops had made clear that this

issue involved fundamental issues of justice, take some

time this summer to write him or her a letter demanding

answers to questions such as:

--Why did you support legislation that for the first time in

American history requires the federal government to

promote and support the destruction of innocent human

life?

--Why did you vote for a bill that tramples on the moral

convictions of the majority of the American people who

do not favor embryo-destructive stem cell research?

--Why did you vote for a bill that deflects scientists.

attention from forms of stem cell research that have

already shown great promise, or may show such promise

in the future? Were you aware that, to date, not a single

therapeutic application has been derived from embryonic

stem cell research, while miracles of biblical proportions

. the blind recovering their sight, the lame walking- are

being performed with therapies using adult stem cells and

stem cells from cord blood?

--Why did you vote for H.R. 810 when the President.s

Council on Bioethics reports there may be ways to create

the kind of .pluripotent. stem cells sought by scientists

without destroying embryos in the process?

--Why did you vote for embryo-destructive stem cell

research while knowing that this practice will strengthen

pressures for cloning, against which the United States has

no federal legal barrier today? (And if you didn.t know

this, why didn.t you?).

It.s interesting to note that among those voting for the

passage of this bill, 73 Catholic representatives- 57% of

the Catholics in the House- did so even though they knew

they were voting to spend taxpayer dollars to destroy

human life for research purposes. Among those

representatives were the following from New York State:

Joseph Crowley; Vito Fossella; Brian Higgins; Carolyn

McCarthy; Michael McNulty; Charles Rangel; John

Sweeney; and Nydia Velasquez.

About George Weigel: The man was granted

unprecedented access to Pope John Paul II and the people

who knew him in order to write Witness to Hope, a

biography of the Pope, in 1999. He is a Roman Catholic

theologian and a leading commentator on religion and

public life.

The August issue of LIFE NEWS will be made ready

for mailing on Saturday, July 30th. If you can give us

.Pennies From Heaven.

Help raise money for the WALK FM KIDS CAMPAIGN

Give all of your pennies that you have been saving to a worthwhile cause.

As we begin the summer thinking of the beach, pool parties and barbeques, we

need to remember those children who are less fortunate. Our children look

forward to summer vacation, but children less fortunate look forward to school

starting again so that they will have a place to go, friends to play with and healthy

food to eat. Please, give those pennies or other spare change to a most needed

cause. 100% of your donations will go directly to the WALK FM KIDS

CAMPAIGN.

THANK YOU !!

Your pennies will be collected in the lobby of the church as you leave Mass.

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

Even Used Inkjet Cartridges,

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

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

baggie) when you come to mass. We will send them to a

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!!!
