OUR LITURGY

Paul praises the Thessalonians for their faith and reminds

them that they have been chosen by God. They received

the gospel message not only in word, but through the

Holy Spirit. In today.s Gospel, Jesus recognizes the

hypocrisy of the Pharisees. He tells them to straighten out

their priorities by giving to Caesar and to God what each

one is due.

Jesus. answer in no way means we are not

supposed to get involved in the world or try to

change it, or help people get closer to Jesus (by

what we say and do). As Paul tells us in his letter to

the Thessalonians, we are to labor for the faith and

with much conviction through the help and power of

the Holy Spirit. So yes, we are to change the world

and make it a better place. And yes, we are to use

the things of this world to live in it, but by no means

are we to give this world everything!

Members of The Catholic Daughters of

America, The St. Joseph.s Court, are at the doors

of the Church giving out White Ribbons, for us to

wear as a symbol against pornography and other

immoral elements in Film, Television, Recordings,

and Print Media. This is just one of the many things

that The Catholic Daughters do for the parish and

the Church as a whole. Throughout their time they

have provided scholarships for those going to

Catholic High Schools, they have helped support our

seminarians for the past two years Lachlan and Lee

and they have done so much more.

Representatives of the Court will be speaking at

Masses this weekend to tell you more and seek new

members. Please consider joining one of the oldest

Lay Woman.s Catholic Groups in our country and

parish. I am so grateful to the Catholic Daughters

for all they do and so very happy that St. Joseph.s

has its own court.

This Thursday October 20th, at St.

Agnes Cathedral several members of

our parish will be receiving Service

Awards for their dedication to our

children through the Religious Education

Program. Congratulations to Kathy

Wiener for receiving the Bishop John R.

McGann Award for over 30 yrs. of

service, and to Gil Balkam for receiving

the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Award for

over 20 yrs. of service. We also

congratulate Barbara Hoos, Beth

Beecher, Mary Ann Horvath who will be

receiving the Pope St. Pius X Award for

over 10 years of service. Thank you all

and thank you to all who share their faith

with our young people through our

Religious Ed. Program. Thanks also to Jane Favale,

Catherine Foy, Gloria Napolitano, our Religious

Education Coordinators, for their dedication to our

young people.

God bless you always!

Fr. Mike

.Tell us, then what is your opinion: Is it

lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?.

..repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to

God what belongs to God..

One might think that this Gospel Reading would be

more appropriate for April 15th, but here it is as we

are rapidly moving toward the end of the Liturgical

Year. It is important for this time of the year because

our focus at the end of the year, and at the beginning

of the new year, is the second coming of Christ and

the end of time. And so, this reading is telling us

more about where our focus should be in this life as

we contemplate moving to the next life. Jesus.

answer is far more informative then the audience who

received it could ever have imagined! They are trying

to trick Jesus into saying something that will get him in

trouble with one or several of the groups living in 1st

Century AD Israel. If Jesus says, it.s lawful to pay the

tax then the leadership, or the Anti-Roman Zealots

would call Him a blasphemer or a Roman

sympathizer. Jesus would be a blasphemer, because

Caesar made himself a god, and so if Jesus supports

paying the tax He would be violating the 1st

Commandment. Of course, if Jesus said under no

circumstances should you pay the tax, Jesus would

be found guilty of sedition and could be arrested by

the Romans (of course those who tried to trap Him

would have been the 1st ones to tell the Romans what

Jesus said).

So, Jesus does not answer them, at

least not in the way they were hoping.

Jesus. answer goes to the heart and

depth of our human life. Our lives are

spent here on Earth balanced between

our physical needs, laws, and restraints;

and a life, which should be focused on

God, and in the spirit. Jesus. answer

helps us to keep our lives in a proper

balance. When we give to Caesar only

what belongs to him-when we use the

things of this world, so we can live in this

world, than we maintain a good and

proper balance between our two lives.

Do not give this world more than you

should, and realize that there is more to

human life than just living here. We are

not like the coin used for the tax that bears Caesar.s

image, something finite, no we are made in God.s

image and that means our lives are more than the

number of possessions we have, and much more than

meets the eye. We are not Caesar.s or the state.s, or

even the world.s! No, we are God.s- so give to the

world what is of this world and give to God what

belongs to God, your very self.

RESPECT LIFE

Cord blood- or umbilical fluid . seems to be in the

news lately, and rightly so. It is rich in stem cells, which

are the building blocks of the immune system and all

other blood cells. So far, cord blood stem cells (not to be

confused with embryonic stem cells) have been used in

about 6,000 transplants to treat leukemia, lymphoma,

blood disorders and some genetic diseases. Scientists say

they believe cord blood might soon be used

to repair heart or nerve tissue damaged by

strokes, Alzheimer.s and Parkinson.s

diseases or spinal cord injuries.

It works this way: Cord blood is

collected right after the baby is delivered.

The process, doctors say, doesn.t harm the

child or the mother. After the umbilical cord is clamped,

the physician draws about 4 ounces of fluid from the cord

or placenta and deposits it into a sterile kit that.s rushed

by courier to the banking facility the parents have chosen.

There, the unit is processed and deeply frozen for

indefinite storage. Arrangements need to be made in

advance so the collection kit can be sent to the parents

and brought to the hospital the day of the baby.s delivery.

The benefit, though expensive, extends to siblings,

parents, even complete strangers. Congress is now

considering legislation that would create a federally

funded national registry of donated cord blood, which has

successfully been used in stem cell transplants between

unrelated people. Presently, there are 22 nonprofit public

stem cell banks in the country, the largest and oldest

being New York Blood Center.s National Cord Blood

Program, and these function under the same concept as

organ donor registries. The House of Representatives

recently approved a bill granting $79 million to build a

national public registry of at least 150,000 donated cord

blood units. The future of that legislation rests with the

Senate.

Newsday, October 3, 2005

 

DID YOU KNOW that the Suffolk County Legislature

recently passed legislation requiring that children

younger than 17 will need parental consent to go to a

tanning parlor? We know that even a school nurse cannot

give a child an aspirin without parental consent. How

come, then can a teenager get an abortion without her

parents not only not consenting, but also not knowing, not

being involved at all?

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!!!
