Are Donated in Honor of
Mrs Phyllis Dinatale
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
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
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

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
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.
Registration forms are available on line at :

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
--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

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

Even Used Inkjet Cartridges,
Have Their Uses
We have found a way to help St Joseph and keep those
complicated pieces of plastic, metal and printed circuit
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!!!
