Memory of All the Victims of
September 11, 2001
The number seven in Scriptures denotes fullness or
completeness. Peter is being generous in offering to
forgive seven times. Jesus teaches that God’s forgiveness
is beyond limitation, even seventy times seven; our
willingness to forgive should be likewise. From the time
of Sirach the lesson is clear, forgive and you will be
when we need it. We must
forgive because with forgiveness
comes healing, and as Jesus tells Peter our
forgiveness must be limitless. Again, if we don’t forgive
then pain, hatred, and vengeance will destroy us. We must
be on guard, not to be like the servant who after he
receives forgiveness of his debts does not do the same for
the man who owes him. For if we act like that servant,
God tells us we will receive the same treatment he got
from the king when the king heard how badly he treated
the other servant. As we see: “in anger his master
handed him over to the tortures until he should pay back
the whole debt. “So will my heavenly Father do to you,
unless each of you forgives your brothers from your
Oh Lord, this is so hard to do, especially with what we
remember on this fateful day. How Lord can we forgive,
when we have suffered so much, lost so much and
continue to suffer? Help us please so that we can be
healed a little bit more this year and years that are to
My dear family, remember that the only way we can
do this is through Jesus Christ our life and our salvation.
The only way we can do the Divine thing as opposed to
the human thing is to let Jesus do it for us and with us
through the power of The Holy Spirit. God please help
Today [Sunday] September 11th at 3 PM we will
celebrate a Special Memorial Mass for the victims and
families of that day. We will also pray for peace, an end
of terror acts, and God’s forgiveness and help. The
proceeds from the collection that we will take up at
this 3 PM Mass will go to the victims of Hurricane
Katrina. Also at all of the other Masses today we will
be taking up a special second collection for all of the
victims of the Hurricane-please God help them get
through this terrible disaster. If you wish to help, but
can’t do it this weekend, you can drop off your
donation at the rectory during the week.
Let us close with the great prayer of forgiveness given to
us by our dear Savior: Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be
done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our
daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as
we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from evil. Amen
On this day four years ago, our way of life totally
changed as our nation suffered through the terror attacks
upon the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and those who
died in the Three Airliners. Firefighters, Police Officers,
EMT’s and all types of Emergency Workers lost their
lives in an attempt to rescue those who were trapped. And
those who survived or were present on the days, weeks and
months that followed, will forever have these events printed
on their memories. So many families still suffer the loss of
loved ones who died in these attacks and the pain never
seems to go away!
We as a nation, as a world, now have gotten accustomed
to living in a way we never thought possible-including
armed troops at bridges, tunnels, train stations, stadiums,
and airports. We have grown accustomed to being
personally searched and opening our bags for inspection.
While they may be necessary concerning the times, these
are all things that we thought would never happen in
America. How do we cope?
Our readings today have the answer, but their message is
difficult for some (if not most) to hear. While many
feelings and emotions are everywhere, one we must
consider is what the readings call for-FORGIVENESS.
Some may be inclined to rule out forgiveness, citing how
terrible the events were and the lack of the remorse on the
part of those who organized these events and sadly the ones
that followed. Others may still be overwhelmed by grief
and find some solace in hatred and revenge. But in reality
that will get us nowhere, and it will only exhaust and
Jesus ben Sira, the author of The Book Sirach, and
Jesus the Christ, the author of all life, are telling us we
must move on and that anger, hatred and vengeance will
only lead us to sin. While God is indeed a God of Justice,
and justice must be carried out against those who planned
and carried out these attacks and the ones that followed, we
must remember that vengeance belongs to God alone. Yes,
the nations of the world must protect themselves, yet we
must also work for Peace and Justice, and bring those guilty
to justice. But we must not do it with uncontrolled hatred
and anger. The world has been greatly wronged by misguided
people who must be stopped. However, as
followers of Christ we must pray for healing, ask God to
forgive them, and we must forgive them. Forgiving them
does not mean letting them off the hook or not punish them
with prison, but it does mean not trying to hurt them, as we
were hurt, or give them back twice as much as we receivedeven
though that is our first human response. We are asked
not to give the human response, but the Divine responsewhich
we are capable of doing through the Life, Death and
Resurrection of Jesus Christ (which we participate in
everyday through Baptism).
We must forgive so that we can be open to forgiveness

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

Even Used Inkjet Cartridges,
Have Their Uses
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!!!
