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

The scriptures today speak of hospitality and welcoming Ministers of hospitality are a visible example of using one’s time and talents to welcome the people of God. But the Gospel assures us that all who give even just “a cup of cold water” to one of His lowliest ones will be rewarded.

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.

Personal Meditation 

June 30th   13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mt 10:37-42
Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. “Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet's reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.”

Psalm 119:28
It Is Courage That Counts
When the first locomotive was invented, several “experts” agreed that if a train went at the frightful speed of fifteen miles an hour, the passengers would suffer from nosebleed. They also cautioned that people could suffocate when the train went through a tunnel.
In 1881 the New York YWCA announced typing lessons for women. Protests were made on the grounds that the female constitution would break down under the strain.
Shortly after the telephone was invented, Joshua Coppersmith was arrested in Boston for trying to sell stock in the company that would produce telephones. Authorities said that all well informed people knew it was impossible to transmit the human voice over a wire.
If you are struggling over an impossible-looking task, don’t give up just because others say it cannot be done. Continue on. Act on your convictions. Exercise courage and persistence in the face of resistance and opposition. Ask God to deepen your determination.
Remember that almost every great idea or invention faced fierce resistance from authorities and experts who said it couldn’t be done.

Thought for the Day
Success is never final. Failure is never fatal. It is courage that counts.
