OUR LITURGY

Isaiah reminds us that the depth of God’s forgiveness is

beyond our understanding. Paul says, in life or in death, it

is only Christ that matters. In the Gospel, Jesus illustrates

that whether one has long been faithful to God or comes

later to accept the word of God, one’s reward is

determined by the generous love of God.

Fr. Rene comes to us

from the Philippines and he

has years of experience in some parishes in our

Diocese. Fr. Rene will be assuming some of

Fr. Paul’s duties in the near future, and will also

bring to us some new ideas and ministries, but let’s

give him a chance to settle in. Welcome Fr. Rene

and Lachlan, may God bless you both in your

wonderful ministry here at St. Joseph’s.

This weekend we will hold our Annual Fall Plant

Sale, where you can buy beautiful Mums for a great

price and the proceeds go to helping the Church. Get

your plants while supplies last! Don’t forget

Backwards Raffle Tickets are on sale, and this will

give you plenty of time to purchase your ticket or

share it with others to have a greater chance of

winning.

Remember only 500 tickets will be sold for only

$100 each. This is one of the parish’s major

fundraisers so please come out and support it-thanks.

Next weekend members from the St. Regis Council

of The Knights of Columbus will be speaking at Mass

to tell us about the wonderful benefits of

membership in the Knights, Columbiettes, and

Squires. There is an open house scheduled at the

Council Hall and all are invited to see what the

Knights are all about. I am the Chaplin of our local

council, and it is a great honor to be associated with

this wonderful Lay Catholic Organization.

A very special thanks, to all who contributed to

our second collection last week for the victims of

Hurricane Katrina. As of this writing, we have

received almost $20,000. Thank you for your

caring, prayers and outstanding generosity. This

shows all how wonderful the people of St. Joseph

truly are, and again I thank God every day for the

great privilege of being your pastor. If you would

like to make a donation to help the victims, there is

still time to drop it off at the Rectory or you can send

it directly to the Diocese Catholic

Charities Office.

God bless you always and thank

you for all you do for St. Joseph’s

Fr. Mike

Today’s readings present us with Divine

Impossibilities-that is something which is completely

possible for God, but nearly impossible for us. Nearly,

because with God all things are possible, and so if we

follow Paul’s advise they can be possible for us. For

if we can say from the bottom of our hearts that Life is

Christ, then we can understand that death is indeed

gain-for in death we achieve eternal life. We can truly

understand Paul’s problem-yes, I want to stay here and

do all my best for Christ and those whom I love, but I

also want to go to heaven and be with God!

We see the Divine impossibility also at work in the

Gospel when Jesus says, “Thus the last will be first,

and the first will be last.” This does not make sense

for those who don’t have Christ as their life. For when

Christ is our life, we can truly understand the message

of Jesus’ parable and be reminded of the reward

awaiting us in the Kingdom of Heaven, and how

God’s generosity is extended to all. Time and time

again we see that the Father sent the Son into the

world so all could be saved, that includes those who

have known God/Christ all of their lives and those

who might only truly know God for a short part of

their lives.

Most people would say that this is not fair. Why

should a person who has only known God for ½ or ¼

of their lives be given the same access to God and

heaven? After all, I have known and been loyal to

God my whole life, shouldn’t I get more? But

remember what God says through the Prophet Isaiah:

My ways are not your ways! So, the answer to that

question, from the God who loves us more than

anything, is yes. Yes, it is entirely fair for me to offer

salvation to those who have only known me for a short

period of time. And how could we or anybody else

not want to see salvation extended to all. Like God,

we should want to see all get to heaven. When Christ

is our life, we can answer yes, without reservations,

and seek to do all we can to help others come to know

Christ.

Last weekend we welcomed to Saint Joseph’s, our

new Pastoral Year Seminarian Mr. Lachlan Cameron,

and our new Associate Pastor Fr. Rene O. Tapel.

Lachlan will spend the next 10 months with us just as

Lee did last year and we are very happy to have him

with us as we help this fine young man prepare for the

priesthood. I know he will have a wonderful year here

for he will learn from the best teachers-the people of

St. Joseph’s.

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!!!
