Vocation reflections

Jesus calls to himself all who labor and are burdened. Is Jesus calling you to reach out to people to lift their burdens and give them rest? Is He calling you to do this as a Priest, Deacon, or Religious Sister or Brother?

 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.

Finding Hope...
Many continue to grieve the personal losses of the September 11th tragedy. Others are direct survivors of the attack. All struggle with a grief that is unique. Finding Hope is a spiritually-based bereavement support group program for those directly affected by the events of September 11th. If you would like further information about this program, please call the Office of Family Life Ministries of the Archdiocese of Newark at 973-497-4327.

Allow yourself to be lifted up and experience the wisdom and holiness of God. This is what Jesus wants for you. The Christian Foundations for Ministry (CFM) program, a program of adult spiritual formation, shows you the way. Classes begin in September at a Parish Center near you. The group meets once a week for a period of eight weeks. Call the Ministerial Development Center at 973-497-4350 for information and a brochure.

Personal Meditation 

July 7th   14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mt 11:25-30
At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. ”Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Psalm 116:10
Learning to Fly With One Wing
“Ever since my husband died, I feel as if I’m trying to fly with one wing,” said a depressed widow at her support group. She is not alone in her feeling. Every day, people are widowed, separated, or divorced; lose a job; or discover that they have a serious illness. Sooner or later, all of us have to learn to fly with one wing. Here are some suggestions to keep in mind when such a situation arises in your life:• Substitute a new way for the old way. Things are no longer the same. You must learn to replace old ways of thinking, doing, and acting with new ways.
• Forgive. Every loss brings feelings of anger, guilt, regrets, and remorse. The way to let go is to forgive yourself and anyone who has hurt you.
• Toughen up. Life is not always smooth, clear sailing. When hard times come, get tough. Self-pity saps your strength and courage.
• Face your own worst enemy. Avoid the “Why me?” syndrome. If you don’t, you will become your own worst enemy suffocating in self-pity.
• Look for joy. Biblical people faced great crises in their lives, yet Scripture is filled with the word joy. Like those people, look for reasons to laugh, sing, dance, and be joyful.
• Concentrate on what you have. Remember that few situations in life take everything away from you. Even after a great natural disaster, something is left. Take what remains, thank God for it, and ask God to bless it and expand it.You can learn to fly with one wing if you make the remaining wing strong enough to keep you flying steadily. Keep believing in God and yourself even if you feel “completely crushed.”

Prayer for the Day 
Loving and good God, I look to you for daily strength, guidance, wisdom, perseverance, and patience.
