The Gifts Offered at Our Masses
Are donated in Honor of
John and Angela Martin
Using the image of a vineyard that produced wild grapes,
Isaiah speaks of God’s frustration with Israel. Jesus uses a
parable of a vineyard to chastise the chief priests and
elders; because of their hostility, they will lose the
kingdom to others. Paul tells the Philippians to embrace
the virtues that will produce peace and goodness before
service to God and proper care to those who live in the
vineyard, only now they will do it through His Living
Body the Church.
This warning to the Jewish Leaders is not just meant
for them, it also serves as a reminder to Christian Leaders
as well. Church leaders must always be on guard not to
become like those Jesus speaks to in today’s Gospel.
Church leaders must never abuse their power or forget
why Christ founded the Church in the first place-which is
to be of service to God’s people and lead them to the
Kingdom of Heaven! To prevent abuse and bad
leadership from happening, we must all pray for our
Church Leaders (that includes your own Priests, Deacons,
and Lay Staff). We must pray that they will always be
open to the power of the Holy Spirit and that they will
always do their best. Even if there are times and places
where Church Leaders have failed, all is not lost because
you cannot defeat the Holy Spirit. For when human
leaders fail, God always provides, and the Holy Spirit
sends to the Church the people she needs at the right time.
If there is any doubt of this, just look at our history!
Countless times our dear Blessed Mother has come to the
Church, and many great saints have called the Church
Leaders back to their senses, like St. Catherine of Siena,
or the Second Christ St. Francis of Assisi, whom we
honor this Tuesday October 4th. So never, lose hope, and
know that God is always here to guide His Church.
In honor of St. Francis and his love for animals
and all creation, we will bless animals this afternoon
(Sunday) at 3 PM on the Rectory Lawn.
Also happening today is the Long Island Stand
up for Life from 2-3:30 PM along Route 25 and Route
110 in Huntington-if you are able to, please join your
neighbors in praying for an end of abortion. Also, on this
Respect Life Sunday, we will collect Diapers for Infant
and Toddlers, as well as other gifts. Place your gift in the
bassinet at the Church’s main entrance.
This weekend at all of the Masses we will have our
Confirmation Enrollment, as we ask all our Level 8
Young People to come forward and make their
commitment that they will do all that they can to prepare
for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation next month.
Please keep them and their families in your prayers.
This week, our Religious Education Classes begin
for this year; please drive carefully around the parish
grounds in the late afternoon and early evening, as our
students will be attending their Religious Education
Classes. Also, please pray for our young people, and their
teachers as they learn more about their faith.
God bless you always!
“When in the course of human events, it becomes
necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds
which have connected them with another, and to
assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and
equal station to which the Law of Nature’s God entitles
them…That whenever any Form of Government
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the
People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
Government… We Therefore, the Representatives, of
the United States of America, in General Congress,
Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the
world…publish and declare, That These United
Colonies Are, and of Right ought to be Free and
Independent States, that they are Absolved from
Allegiance to the British Crown…”
With these words, and several others, the United
Colonies of America declared themselves free and
independent of Great Britain. This step was taken because
England failed to properly care for the colonies, and
subjected the colonists to acts of tyranny, oppression, lack
of representation, and an oppressive mercantile system,
which took all of the resources and left nothing for those
who produced them. The neglect of the British Crown
caused the people of America to look for new leaders, to
seek self-government and make a better life for all on our
Through the Declaration of Independence, the Second
Continental Congress told the whole world that England
was out and a new nation had begun-The United States of
America. The Founding Fathers set forth a new nation and
established the idea that bad governments and leaders
where not to be tolerated, but changed for that which is
better. However, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin
Franklin and others of that time were not the first ones to
come up with this idea, for we see this idea at work in our
readings today from the book of the Prophet Isaiah and by
Jesus Himself in today’s Gospel.
The vineyard in both readings is the Kingdom of God
and the world, the leadership in both cases have led the
people astray-this especially seen in the gospel when Jesus
speaks of how the tenant farmers refused to pay the
landlord what was due. The landlord, of course, is God and
those who are sent (who represent the landlord) are the
Prophets, who were beaten, and even killed (the last
prophet being St. John the Baptist). The tenant farmers
who refuse to listen, and even think they can steal the
inheritance from the Son, are Israel’s leaders-the scribes,
elders, Pharisees, and Sadducees. Jesus is telling them that
they are poor leaders, who do not take proper care of God’s
vineyard and abuse the people, nor do they offer proper
service to God. New leaders, who will be appointed by the
Son, will replace them. These leaders will offer proper

This weekend, at all masses, our Level 8 students will be

. Since the Right to Life Party is not on the ballot
this year, it is up to the individual voter to find pro-life
candidates. The way to do this is:
1) Ask the candidate his/her stand on life issues. You may
have to call the headquarters of the candidate’s party but
answers must come directly from the candidate. Then you
must pass this information on to others.
2) The Long Island Coalition for Life mailed a
questionnaire to candidates in major races. Call 631-243-
1435 for responses. OR you can check the questionnaire
and the responses which will be printed in Suffolk Life.
3) Remember: What matters most in every election is
who gets out the vote!
4) Election Day is Tuesday, November 8. For names of
candidates on t he ballot in your area, call your Board of
Elections. In Suffolk County the telephone number is
Remember back in November of 2003 when
President Bush signed into law the Ban on
Partial Birth Abortion? (This act prohibited
the killing of a baby in the process of being
born.) Immediately upon its passage the
American Civil Liberties Union, Planned
Parenthood, National Organization of Women and other
like-minded groups called for an injunction against it in
the District Courts of New York, Nebraska and
During the injunction hearing in New York an abortionist
gave a graphic description of exactly how she did this
dismemberment abortion, and this partial quote will tell it
all: “I use my finger to disrupt the contents of the cranial
cavity (skull) to thereby collapse the skull and allow
delivery of the fetus.” (Now dead, one might add.)
Source: Human Life Review, Spring 2005. Each of the
three above named district courts ruled against the ban on
Partial Birth Abortions but all are under appeal by the
Department of Justice.
There will be a pro-life march on Saturday, October 15th

Martin Osborne, then march to the Monument for the
Unborn at Sacred heart Cemetery on Depot Lane, and
then to the K of C Hall for refreshments. Call John

We have found a way to help St Joseph and keep those

boards out of the land fill. Drop them off (in a plastic

company who reuses them and gives the parish a bounty for
each. One note, to clear confusion, if it is larger than a fist,
