OUR LITURGY

In today’s reading from Ezekiel, the power of repentance

and turning away from sin is proclaimed. Paul writes to

the Philippians that Jesus emptied Himself for the welfare

of the world and because of this, God exalted Him forever

as Christ and Lord. In the Gospel, Jesus says that

repentant sinners will be rewarded in God’s kingdom.

We will be having a baby clothing collection see

details in the further on in the bulletin. Also next

weekend we will have our Confirmation Enrollment

at all of the Masses when our Confirmandi will bring

forward their written commitment to receiving the

Holy Spirit and becoming adult members of the

Church. On the weekend of October 8 and 9 at the 5

PM Mass and the 10:30 AM, Mass we will bless

Bibles and be giving them to our Level 6 Students

from Religious Education and the School. Please

keep them in your prayers.

On Wednesday October 5th, St. Joseph’s School

will be having its annual golf outing-please call the

school for more information or read more on in the

bulletin.

You may recall that last year we converted the

5 PM Mass back to the Youth Mass and it has been

going very well. Young people are serving as

Lectors, Ushers and in the Youth Choir, and they are

doing a great job. This year we are introducing the

next part of our Youth Ministry, The Venturing

Group(s). This component will provide social and

fun activities for the youth of the parish, as well as

helping them become better adult members of the

Church and the Country. Young People and Adults

will work together to minister to each other and

make St. Joseph’s a place for everybody.

Also, we will be starting a Young Adult Group

for people in their 20’s and 30’s- more information

will appear in future bulletins. There is always

something happening here at St. Joseph’s-let’s all

work together to make St. Joseph’s one of the best

parishes in the Diocese.

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

Fr. Mike

In the Book of Genesis we read, “You are free to

eat from any of the trees in the garden except the tree

of knowledge of good and evil. From that tree you

shall not eat: the moment you eat from it you are

surely doomed to die.” “Now the serpent was the most

cunning of all the animals. The serpent asked the

woman “Did God really tell you not to eat from any of

the garden?” The woman answered, “We may eat of

the fruit of the trees in the garden, it is only about the

fruit if the tree in the middle of the garden that God

said “You shall not eat or even touch it, least you

die”. But, the serpent said to the woman: “you,

certainly will not die! No, God knows well the moment

you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be

like gods who know what is good and evil.”

Eve listened to the serpent and ate from the tree of

the knowledge of good and evil, gave it to Adam, and

sin enters into the human family-because Adam and

Eve thought they would become just like God by

trying to capture or steal a little bit of the Divine

Person and Power. They try to take “the easy way

out” and achieve a perfection beyond themselves.

Unfortunately the perfection they were seeking they

already had, but now because of sin they could never

possess it without the help of God-which we receive

only through Christ.

Adam’s pride got in his way, yet Paul tells us this

week about a great act of humility, an act that

achieved our salvation. As Paul tells us, “Have in you

the same attitude that is also in Christ Jesus, who,

though He was in the form of God did not regard

equality with God something to be grasped. Rather,

He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming

in human likeness.” Christ becomes one of us to save

us and restore us. Christ gives us an example to follow

“becoming obedient to the point of death” (meaning

Jesus became a vessel with the capacity of being filled

with God’s will). Paul tells us to be humble in how

we live our lives, to do nothing out of selfishness or

out of vain glory. We are told by Paul to reconsider

how we approach this life and our relationship with

God. Do we stand like Adam and act full of pride and

getting it all wrong, or do we stand like Christ humbly

giving ourselves to God doing everything the Father

asks so they we may have true life? Will we be

instruments of God’s love and life, or will follow the

advice of the serpent and a world that does not truly

understand?

Stewardship

The first son in today’s Gospel said he would do his

father’s bidding, but did not. The second son balked at

first, but then repented and did as he was asked. What

service is God calling me to do? Which son do I

resemble?

RESPECT LIFE

. The St. Joseph Respect Life Committee meeting

previously scheduled for the month of September has

been rescheduled. The new date is Thursday, October 6th

at 7 PM in the library under the stage. As before, all

interested persons are invited and welcome.

Next Sunday, October 2nd, two important events in the

Respect Life community are happening. At our church,

St. Joseph’s, when you come to Mass on Saturday or

Sunday, you will find the bassinet in the church foyer.

Please remember to grab your coupons and buy some

diapers, as this year Parish Outreach asked specifically

for that. Diapers for babies and toddlers are needed.

Whatever you donate will be distributed through Parish

Outreach. We won’t refuse any handmade items, though,

but will welcome them, as usual.

That same day in the afternoon, people from all over

Long Island will gather in Huntington at the intersection

of Rte. 110 and Jericho Turnpike to celebrate Long

Island’s pro-life commitment by standing roadside with

signs affirming their belief that all life is precious, born

and unborn. Each group has a specific place to stand, and

St. Joseph’s is in front of Bloomingdale’s. Please join us

from 2PM until 3:30 PM.

Let’s revisit some Life issues:

The U.S. Supreme Court decisions Roe v.

Wade and Doe v. Bolton legalized

abortion through all 9 months of pregnancy

for ANY reason.

Up to 60% of abortions are coerced. (Aborted Women,

Silent No More).

In New York State, a minor DOES NOT need a parent’s

permission or knowledge to have an abortion. She does

need a parent’s ok to get body piercing, a tattoo, or to get

an aspirin from the school nurse.

Among women who had been pregnant at least once, the

risk of breast cancer in those who had experienced an

induced abortion was 50% higher than among other

women. (National Cancer Institute; (1994); 1584)

There were approximately 8,500 induced abortions

committed in Nassau and Suffolk counties in 2003.

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!!!
