The prophet Malachi warned those priests who did not
teach the truth, and who did not give glory to God, that
they would be made contemptible. They had caused many
to stumble by their false teaching. The Gospel teaches
about the true nature of religious leadership, that it is not
just a name or a title, but a vocation to reflect God’s

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard for our
Craft Fair. We had two weekends of rain and unfortunately
we had to cancel the event. However, thanks to our
supportive parents we worked together and sold the baked
goods and also the mums. All our work is not in vain, we
will put all the knowledge learned into a
great event next fall.
Our students in grades K-3
worked with the Long Island Science

and fossils and even had the chance to
bring some home as necklaces! It was a
great learning experience for our

Our Nursery and Pre-K classes carved jack-o-lanterns in

The following poem was written by one of our students,
Nicole McCormick in grade 4.
Halloween, so spooky and fun,
Makes us yell in moonlight and sun,
Ghosts, Vampires, Witches too,
All these creatures say, BOO!
We’ll trick-or-treat and hope for good candy,
It’ll keep our Halloween spirit dandy,
Let’s dance in joy,
Every girl and boy,
Let’s sing and shout,
‘Cause that’s what Halloween is all about!

describes his relationship with the Thessalonians-as
being like a nursing mother caring for her children.
Paul was to them a leader who was not only the boss,
but also their older brother and friend. Paul was not
just the administrator of affairs, but their pastor who
was one with them in the daily process of them
knowing Christ and becoming fully Christian.
Yes, Christ, St. Paul, and The Prophet Malachi
give us the proper instruction for all Church Leaders,
and again I ask you to please pray for all of our
leaders. Pray for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI,
Our Bishop William Murphy and all of the Bishops,
all of the Priests and Deacons (especially those of us
who are given the great honor and privilege of
serving here at St. Joseph’s), those preparing for the
Priesthood and Diaconate, and all those in Religious
Life (Brothers and Sisters). Pray for us that we will
always be people who place God and His people
first, and that we dedicate our lives to their serviceas
God has called us to do! Only then can we be
true Christian Leaders, following the one who came
into the world to serve and not to be served!
Remember this example and warning is not just for
Church Leaders, it is also for all Christians to follow,
as all are called through Baptism to put themselves in
service to God and others.
This weekend at all of the Masses we are
speaking about Stewardship, and as this is
Autumn, and we are about to begin our new
Liturgical Year in just a few weeks, we ask
you to consider how you can put yourself in
service to the whole community through
sharing of your treasure. Through your great
generous giving the mandate that Christ gave
the Church, to feed the hungry, clothe the
naked, visit and minister to the sick
(Mt. Chapter 25) and to preach the Gospel to
all nations, is able to happen. Without you,
none of this is possible and none of this
happens. Likewise without you we cannot
maintain our parish home the Church
Building, or the School Building that serves
all of our children (those who attend the
school, our religious education students, our
Sunday School students, CYO, our various
Scout Troops), and the grounds that always
On one occasion a priest when faced with today’s
readings from Malachi and Mathew’s Gospel was
known to get up and offer these words for his homily;
“I should simply like to say that there is no other text
in all of Scripture that frightens me more!” Now, I am
sure that many in the congregation were happy
because it was a very short homily (keep wishing), but
with these, few words he said a great deal.
A few weeks ago, Jesus in the parable of the Tenant
Farmers told the religious leaders that they would be
replaced for not being good leaders. They did not help
the people of Israel come closer to God no; they
placed barriers between God and the people, and cared
only about themselves. Even when God sent the
Prophets and then His own Son, the leaders still acted
wrongly. Well today, Jesus continues the thought, and
again it is directed to all leaders, and it serves as a
warning to those who are Church leaders. But what is
the cause of Jesus’ criticism toward the Pharisees and
Scribes? It has more to do than their acceptance of
titles like Rabbi (remember Jesus was addressed by
many and responded to the title Rabbi), and wearing
Phylacteries [small wooded boxes with quotes from
the Torah that were strapped around their foreheads
and arms]. It has to do with the fact they seemed to
forget why they were called Rabbi and wore the
Sacred Scriptures on their person. It became more
important for them to be treated with respect and given
the places of honor than to realize that they had to earn
them by respecting and caring for the people and
offering humble service.
In one commentary on today’s Gospel, (Douglas R.
A. Hare) clarifies the point by saying: “it is not a
mortal sin for clergy to be addressed as Reverend,
Doctor, Pastor, or Father. However, the eagerness of
the congregation to revere the ordained by the use of
honorific titles serves to intensify the minister’s
responsibility to break down the barrier between
clergy and laity.” In short, Jesus in the gospel is
telling those who He appoints over His flock not to act
like heartless taskmasters or attention grabbers at
public functions. They must not wear their piety like a
costume that one can easily put on and take off. No,
they are instead to be humble servants looking always
to Christ for example, and inspiration with regard to
leadership, piety, integrity, and caring compassion for
Paul’s letter today also backs this up when he

need a great deal of attention. Without your
great help, we will not be able to provide the
services and facilities we have grown
accustomed to receiving at St. Joseph’s.
We know the economy is rotten and prices keep
going up-especially gasoline, oil, gas, phone and
electricity. We know because we are faced with the
same bills (and in most cases we are treated as a
business so we have to pay the higher commercial
rates) and like you so many more. Just think of your
monthly bills and multiply them by 10 or 20 then you
realize what we as a parish have to pay! Please be
assured that we are doing our best to cut cost and even
personnel where ever we can, but there is only so much
we can cut. Like you, we are not going to live above
our means, but there are still necessary repairs and
renovations that have to be carried out AND WE
CANNOT DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
Please use this week and the weeks ahead to look at
what you return to the Lord from the many gifts He has
given to you. If you can increase, your donations even
a little bit more thank you. If you feel that you cannot
give any more, please continue to give what you are
currently giving. And if times are really hard and you
feel that it is even harder to give that, we
understand and ask you to do what you can and
continue to pray for those who are able to do more.
Also, if you have not increased your offering over the
course of years, and you have the means to do so,
please consider doing it at this time perhaps you can
make a difference in what St. Joseph’s is able to do!
I assure you that your contribution will not be
wasted, no it will go to support all we do here and help
us to do all that Jesus command us to do in His Holy
Name. Thank you, for your prayers and your
thoughtful consideration of the Parish’s financial needs
and obligations, and thank you in advance for your
generous response. God bless you always.

Almost everyone knows the cute, orange
boxes young supermen, gorillas, ghosts, and
cartoon characters carry around collecting
money for United Nations Children’s Fund
(UNICEF). But what they don’t know is where the
money really goes. UNICEF was created to feed, clothe
and provide medication for poor children caught in the
disastrous wake of WWII. In spite of this, over the past
thirty to forty years, UNICEF has been playing a devious
little trick of its own. Starting in the late 1960s under
pressure from Sweden, India, and Pakistan, UNICEF
began funding contraceptives, abortifacients and
sterilizations worldwide. This was begun in spite of
opposition from all African countries except Nigeria and
nominal opposition from the United States. In 1972,
UNICEF met with the World Health Organization
(WHO), another pro-abortion organization, to discuss the
“ways of accelerating the expansion of family planning
services.” This, like many of UNICEF’s statements, may
sound benign, but their actions proved their evil
intentions. In 1987, UNICEF, according to its own
records, officially endorsed abortion after years of
silently supporting it as a way of family planning. But the
worst was to come. In 1997 this
organization named China as the “most baby friendly
nation in the world.” They forgot, however, to mention in
their report China’s “One Child” policy, the freezing and
dying rooms for unwanted baby girls, and the frequency
of forced child labor.
By 1998, UNICEF could no longer carry out projects
like this on its own, so the UN allied it with UNFPA
(United Nations Fund for Population Activities) and the
WHO, both of whom had strong ties to Planned
Parenthood International and encouraged abortion and
sterilization. The bottom line is that UNICEF has
changed drastically over the years, from what it started
out to be, a
humanitarian group, to a group associated with Planned
Parenthood, the largest and richest abortion provider in
the world. You could do better things with your spare
change than to put it in any of these boxes.

it is not an inkjet cartridge!!!
