Vocation reflections

Since we have been saved by the grace of God in the person of Jesus Christ, we have no need to dear. Jesus says,.” not be afraid of anything.” This is the consoling and faith filled message of the Church. This message needs messengers so as to calm the fear of all. Perhaps the Lord is calling you to be that messenger as a priest, brother or sister?

 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

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.

Prayerful Marches
On Good Friday, Archbishop John J. Myers took part in joining pro-life Catholics in Englewood in an annual Stations of the Cross for Life procession and recitation of the Rosary. The annual procession passed on abortion clinic in Englewood, where they gave witness to the sanctity of human life.
This event caused a great deal of interest on the part of many pro-life committees, and we have received suggestions to imitate him by going to pray the Rosary at abortion facilities while mothers are counseled to save their babies.
There are several places where this occurs: At Englewood, on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. At Hackensack, on Monday, Friday and Saturday arrive between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Call Annette (201)569-3246 or Ana Maria (201)652-4938 for information.

Personal Meditation 

June 23rd   12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mt 10:26-33
“So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows. ”Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; but whoever denies me before others, I also will deny before my Father in heaven.
Psalm 71:20
Healthy Dependence
A Boston executive has been through so many personal and professional crises that she refers to herself as “Calamity Jane.” “I’ve been spared nothing,” she says. “Getting fired, running out of money, having my computer stolen, taking on work I could not handle.”
Initially, when trouble came her way, the woman maintained a fierce independence and determination to manage her problems alone, refusing to let anyone know of her struggles. “I put a lot of energy into keeping up a facade of being in control and completely successful,” she says. “Nobody ever knew I was in trouble.”
Then one day she lost an important consulting contract and was devastated. The burden was so great, she finally allowed herself to confide in friends. Immediately, they organized a breakfast to brainstorm ways the executive could network and obtain new contracts. “That got me charged up again to take action,” she recalls.
This woman’s experience taught her the value of healthy dependence. At times, we must be willing to admit we have problems. When we confide in another person, we open ourselves to their insight, support, and assistance. It is often through the help of a friend that God restores our strength.

Thought for the Day
A friend should bear his friend’s infirmities.
