No Arrangements were
made for this week. If you would
like to have your loved one
remembered in this way
please contact the rectory.
Today, we are warned of God’s wrath if we commit any
unjust act toward those who are weak. God is
compassionate and hears the cries of those who are
hurting. Paul praises the Thessalonians for their faith and
for being role models to the world. Jesus teaches us the
basis of all law: love for God and unselfish love for one’s
Razors, Shampoo and Conditioners, and Laundry
Detergent and Dish Washing Soap. Thank you!
Next Saturday October 29th, at 10:30 AM, we will
have our Fall Anointing of the Sick Mass. We invite
all who are suffering from the effects of old age or
long-term illness, going in for surgery, or just
diagnosed with an illness to come to this Mass. Also
next weekend at all of the Masses, some members of
the parish family and I, will speak about
Stewardship. In the fall, we concentrate on how we
can be the best stewards with our treasure. We will
go over the parish’s financial needs and realities, and
how we can all help to do our part. In the
springtime, we will discuss time and talent-how we
can use the gifts that God has given us and use them
for the good of all. After we talked about this last
year, our weekly donations increased and I am so
grateful for your wonderful response, and I am
asking for your continued support and help once
Please remember that Tuesday November 1st is the
Feast of All Saints and is a Holy Day of Obligation.
The Mass Schedule is Monday Evening October 31st
at 7:30 PM, Tuesday November 1st at 7 AM, 9 AM,
12:10 PM, 5 PM, and 7:30 PM. On Wednesday
November 2nd The Feast of All Souls, we will
celebrate as Special Mass of Remembrance at 7:30
PM. At this Mass, we will announce all of the names
(during the Prayer of The Faithful) of those who
during the past year had their funerals celebrated
here at St. Joseph’s. However, all are invited to
attend this Mass and come up and light a candle for
loved ones who have passed on.
Let us pray, Gracious God, we come together
with thanks that you have created us in your own
image. We pray strength to love You by loving
our neighbors so we can show Your face in this
world. We ask this through Christ our Lord,
God Bless You Always!
“Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord
alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, our God,
with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with
all your strength.” (Deut. 6:4 & 5)
This ancient quote from The Book of Deuteronomy,
is known as the Shema-the essential creed of Judaism.
This is the sentence with which every Jewish service
opens and the first text, which every Jewish child
commits to memory-including Jesus. It tells us, that to
God we must give total love, and this love must be a
love of dynamic action. This is what Jesus is calling
for, when He offers His answer to the Pharisees and
the Scholar of Law who asked Jesus which
commandment of the Law was the greatest. So, Jesus
quotes Deuteronomy Chapter 6 is telling us that Faith
and Religion are all about Love. But how do we do
this, actively-Jesus gives us the answer. “You shall
love your neighbor as yourself.”
Let’s look at this answer. One cannot love his/her
neighbor without first loving God, but we cannot truly
love God if we do not see God in our brothers and
sisters. God created us this way- to be like Him and so
like God we are to care for others. That is why God
does command the people in the Book of Exodus not to
oppress aliens, or neglect widows and orphans, or take
interest on a loan, etc. So, Jesus’ answer reflects the
bringing together of the ancient teachings of Israel-
Love God and Love Neighbor. But we know that it is
not easy to love one’s neighbor. So, Love God first!
Only when we love God first do our neighbor’s
become lovable-again because God created us in His
image and likeness-so if we can see God in our
brothers and sisters, well you know the rest. We can
only do this together and with the help of the Holy
Spirit. Therefore, the next time you find it hard to
love your neighbor-try to see God in him/her and look
beyond that which gets in the way of blinding you!
One way to show our love for our neighbors (in a
small way) is to help the needy in our community
during the upcoming Holiday Season. So many
people make food donations, and we thank them for
this and ask you to keep doing so, but our brother and
sisters need personal items as well. Starting next
weekend and for the next 4 weekends we will be
asking you to donate some of these items. You can
bring them to Mass with you and place them before
the statue of The Blessed Mother. If you are able, next
weekend please bring with you TOOTHPASTE AND
SOAP. In the following weeks, we will be asking for:

Today let’s look at a few excerpts from
various sources, which all have something to
say regarding abortion: “The abortion was
almost nine years ago. I think of my baby
who I know deep in my heart was a boy – I named him
Baby “J”. I think about him everyday, and I cry everyday
for him. I found this site by accident and the tears just
flowed. I am sick with grief, self-hatred over my
abortion. I have told no one, Baby “J’s” father insisted on
that. I was a single mom at the time, no health insurance,
working a minimum wage job. I had no family support at
all. I felt I had no choice. I wish so much he had been
born, perhaps I could have given him up for adoption.
Sometimes the pain and grief is so overwhelming, I feel
that I have no right to have a happy life.”
“Today is so hard. My child would have turned seven
this week. He should be here with me, we should be
together. Instead, I sit here alone, head pounding, tears
falling, feeling myself drifting back into that pit of regret
and pain that I fought so hard to get out of. Every time I
feel like I’ve moved on, it comes back. When will this
stop?” Anonymous letters to a post-abortion website
“This (Korean cloning of a human) is a sign of moral
regress. Human cloning turns procreation into a
manufacturing process, treating human life as a
commodity made to pre-set specifications.
Science and technology are great human goods when
placed at the service of the human person. Here the
opposite occurred. Human beings were treated as
products of technology, then used and discarded.”
Cardinal William Keeler, February 12, 2004, on the
announcement that Korean scientists had successfully
created a human clone.
According to Dr. Martha Shuping, a psychiatrist with
more than ten years of experience in helping women with
post-abortion issues, delayed reactions are often triggered
by subsequent life events such as the birth of a baby, the
death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a religious
conversion, or even physical changes like menopause.
Many women have “anniversary reactions”, such as
anxiety attacks, depression, suicidal impulses, or
abdominal cramping around the anniversary date or
month of the abortion, or around the time when their
babies would have been due. Supporting citations are
Should you know of anyone suffering so, please tell
them that help is available. The organization called
Rachel’s Vineyard was formed for just that reason. You
can contact them through the Life Center of Long
Island, telephone 631-243-2373.

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!!!
