Vocation reflections

Jesus’ heart was moved with pity at the sight of the crowds who he saw as “sheep without a shepherd.” He then admonished his disciples to “Beg the harvest master to send our laborers to gather his harvest.” It was then that he summoned his twelve disciples and sent them forth. Little has changed in the 2000 years since. We still need shepherds and we too are the ones called, as were the Twelve, to go forth and bear witness to the reign of God. Perhaps the Lord is calling you to do so as a priest, brother or religious?

 If you feel this call, “inquire within” and Please contact the Vocations Office the Vocations Office at (973) 497-4365 or by E-mail at Or visit our web site at

In today’s Gospel, Jesus sends out His disciples to meet the needs of others. His admonition to them is the same challenge He makes to us: “The gift you have received, give as a gift.”

Every Tuesday the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the church from 3PM to 4PM. Those who come dedicate an hour of prayer for the priests, DIVINE MERCY and religious men and women of the church. Prayers are also said for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and religious life. We invite you to come and spend time with the Lord for these intentions and for your personal requests. The Holy Hour closes with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. If you cannot join us in church, we ask you to join us from a quiet spot in your home and pray with us, asking the Lord to guide and protect our priests.

Interviews of Archbishop Myers
Perhaps some of our parishioners were lucky enough to catch this...
On Wednesday, June 12th, NBC’s TODAY SHOW and CNN had carried interviews of Archbishop Myers about the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, the document that the Bishops of the United States had taken up at their meeting in Dallas on June 13th-15th. Archbishop Myers had also appeared live on CNN with Paula Zahn on Friday, June 14th at 9 a.m. Other local and national interviews also had aired as well during the days of the meeting.
The Archbishop is a member of the US Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee on Sexual Abuse, which developed the Charter.

Personal Meditation 

June 16th   11th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Mt 9:36—10:8
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. You received without payment; give without payment.
Psalm 33:13
God Knows When the Water Is Rising
In South America, an immense dam was constructed across a valley, forming one of the world’s largest human made lakes.
As the water gradually rose, it created many temporary islands, which grew smaller and smaller as the water level continued to climb.
Various jungle animals took refuge on those small pinnacles of land. However, their safety was in jeopardy because the water continued to rise. Kind people organized a small fleet of motorboats equipped with ropes, snares, nets, and cages and tried to save the endangered animals.
While some creatures were rescued, many resisted and fought against their rescuers. Unable to understand, the animals were afraid to trust the people who came to save them, and they perished.
God sometimes deals with us in a similar manner. We feel safe and secure on our small islands. When we are called to move off our comfortable, familiar islands, however, let us realize that it may be because the water is rising.

Affirmations for the Day
I am guided to my good by
by the power of God’s love.
My life is abundantly blessed
by the power of God’s love.
live in peace and confidence
by the power of God’s love.

 HappyFather’s Day
