No arrangements were made

like to have your loved one

remembered in this way

please contact the rectory.

OUR LITURGY

While the prophet Ezekiel emphasizes the serious

obligations of the law to correct one’s neighbor, Paul

gives us insights on how to proceed with love. In today’s

Gospel, Jesus speaks of gently correcting one another so

that the community may be in harmony. Jesus promises to

remain with those who gather in His name.

those who are attending daily Mass to be careful driving

around the parish grounds. Starting this Tuesday

September 6, 2005 we will go back to Mass at 8:45AM.

This will be our Tuesday Morning Schedule until the

end of June when school closes. Even when the school

is closed, we will still have Mass at 8:45 AM, this way

there will not be any confusion.

Next Sunday, September 11, 2005 we will have a

Special Memorial Mass for the Victims and Families of

the events of September 11, 2001. During this Mass, we

will also pray for peace in our world, forgiveness and an

end to all acts of terror- Mass will be celebrated at 3PM.

Remember we will have our usual schedule of Sunday

Masses on that day and the Victims of 9/11 are one of the

intentions at all of our Masses, but the 3 PM Mass will be

just for 9/11.

Also, on the weekend of September 10 & 11, we will

begin the sale of our Backwards Raffle Tickets.

Remember there will only be 500 tickets sold each for

$100. But this gives you a chance to win the grand prize

of $10,000 and many other cash prizes. This a major

fundraiser for the parish and it goes along way to support

the parish. When we sell all 500 tickets we make over

$30,000, and remember you can split the ticket 2 ways, or

5 ways, or 10 or 20 ways. So, many people look forward

to this raffle and we have one group of 5 friends who go

in on one ticket every year-so how about you? The grand

drawing will take place in late November with our usual

party, so get your raffle tickets now!

Next Saturday September 10th, two members of our

parish will begin studying for the Diaconate our parish

and the Diocese of Rockville Centre. They are Mr. Frank

Dell’Aglio and Mr. Bill Dobbins. Please pray for Frank

and Bill their wives Kathy and Blanca and their families

as they begin their studies and increased service to the

Church.

Let us pray, God, you gave me the gift of speech and to

speak in your name. Help me as I use your gifts; may I

always follow the commandment to love. Amen.

Thank you, for all you do for St. Joseph’s

Fr. Mike

PS. We will be welcoming to St. Joseph’s, later

this week, our new Associate Pastor, Fr. Rene`

Tapel. He will be introducing himself at all of the

Masses next weekend.

“Cain said to his brother Abel, ‘Let us go out in the

field!’ When they were in the field, Cain attacked his

brother Abel and killed him. Then the Lord asked Cain,

‘Where is your brother Abel? He answered, ‘I do not

know. Am I my brother’s keeper?’” Cain answers God

back very sarcastically and in a way, that he hopes will

distract God from His question. Cain hopes that God may

answer, No, I suppose not and leave Cain alone. But God

does not let Cain off the hook, because He knows what

Cain did and in fact, as we see in today’s readings we are

told that we are our brother’s (and sister’s) keeper. How do

we know this; look at God’s words to the Prophet Ezekiel.

“When you hear me say anything, you shall warn them for

me.” “If I tell the wicked, ‘O wicked one, you shall surely

die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked from

his way…” And now look at the words of our Lord. “Jesus

said to His disciples, ‘If your brother sins against you go

and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he

listens to you, you have won over your brother.”

Both the Prophet and the Messiah are telling us to help

each other out when they or we are at fault and have put our

will before God’s will. We are told that we cannot take a

blind eye and pretend that something bad isn’t happening or

we really can’t say anything because it is not our business.

But of course, this is not easy. In fact, one of the hardest

things for most people to do is correct the faults of others.

Sometimes we may think, who am I to tell this person they

are doing something wrong? Why would this or that

person listen to me? Well we don’t know if the person is

going to listen to us, and God does speak of the possibility

(in both readings) that we could be rejected- yet we are

told to try.

Again this not about something minor or over

just a mere difference of opinion, no we are told to

take this action for those things which could take a

person away from God and true life. We are told

to take such actions of correcting our brothers and

sisters when they are going to take steps that will

hurt themselves or others. We as Christians are

not supposed to sit idly by and watch people

destroy themselves or do anything that gets in the

way of their journey to Heaven. But remember

success is not what we are being judged upon, only

whether or not we did our part to correct and

speak out against injustice, harmful activity and

selfishness. Of course, we should do all we can to

help the person achieve success, but again its up to

the other person to accept our help and God’s help.

School opens this Wednesday September 7, 2005 and

we are reminded to drive with care as our children make

their way to school in our neighborhoods. Our own St.

Joseph’s School is also opening on this day and we ask

RESPECT LIFE

The following are bits of information

gleaned from the current issue of LIFE

NEWS, the September 2005 issue.

1) You are invited to St. Regis Council,

Knights of Columbus, on Monday, Sept. 26 at 7:45 p.m.

to hear Dr. Elizabeth Rex, President of The Children First

Foundation. She will be the guest speaker; her talk will

touch on such important issues as adoption, Baby Safe

Haven, and the effort to establish a “Choose Life” license

plate in New York. (Several other states already have

such a plate.)

2) Do NOT donate to UNICEF – that organization

doesn’t tell you of their anti-life activity and the millions

of U.S. taxpayer dollars annually given to them for their

programs. For a copy of the LIFE NEWS article

explaining all this, please send a self-addressed stamped

envelope to: LICL-UNICEF-a Halloween Trick

P.O. Box 223, Ronkonkoma, NY 11779

3) Oppose Senate bill S.471 – send a letter to Senators

Clinton and Schumer telling them you oppose causing the

deaths of embryos, since extracting their stem cells

during research ALWAYS kills them. Contact

information: Local phone # Schumer -212-486-4430

Clinton – 212-688-6262

4) Please continue to alert the L.I. Coalition for Life

when you come across a notice about community

events, indoor and out, asking for “vendor exhibitors

needed”. This gives the LICL a heads-up for a prolife

table, such as they had at the Senior Summer

Festival. Why there, you might ask? Here are some

reasons: a) seniors vote; they should know what

many pro-choice candidates stand for b) many

grandparents are raising their grandchildren and

should know about pro-life resources should the need

arise c) their taxes pay for abortions through state

programs, including Medicaid d) women who had

abortions some time ago may still be in need of postabortion

healing.

Call 243-1435 for information about “a table at the Fair”.

It’s A Parish Fund Raiser

It’s Fun And Exciting

It’s Only $5

Here’s how it works:

You buy a ticket for $5. It will have a 3-team code. It is good for all 17

weeks of the NFL regular Season. Each week the combined high score

wins: $100; Second: $85; Third: $70; Fourth: $50 and the lowest score

wins $35. So for just $5 you have a chance to win one of 5 cash prizes

for each of the 17 weeks. At the end of the season, there will be a

drawing for 10 $50 prizes from the tickets that did not already win a

prize. Buy more than one, get friends, family and coworkers to buy

some. It’s a great way to help support St. Joseph’s Parish and enjoy

the Football Season. Please note, once the season begins, any unsold

tickets remain the property of the contest and any winning prizes of

these tickets remain in the fund. These tickets remain open for

purchase, but the holder is entitled only to those prizes awarded after

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!!!
