Vocation reflections

Some of us hear the Word of God without truly understanding it, and so it is easily taken away. Others hear the Word of God and accept it with joy, but then, it is easily lost. Still others hear the Word of God, but worldly anxiety and the lure of riches do not allow it to bear fruit. But blessed are those among us who hear the Word of God, take it to heart and allow it to bear fruit in the world. 

 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

True worship is expressed by love of justice and concern for the poor. True discipleship may entail alienation, even rejection, by loved ones.

Personal Meditation 

July 14th   15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mt 13:1-23
That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. Such great crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat there, while the whole crowd stood on the beach. And he told them many things in parables, saying: “Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell on the path, and the birds came and ate them up. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and they sprang up quickly, since they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Let anyone with ears listen!” Then the disciples came and asked him, “Why do you speak to them in parables? ”He answered, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. The reason I speak to them in parables is that 'seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen, nor do they understand. 'With them indeed is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah that says: 'You will indeed listen, but never understand, and you will indeed look, but never perceive. For this people's heart has grown dull, and their ears are hard of hearing, and they have shut their eyes; so that they might not look with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and understand with their heart and turn— and I would heal them. 'But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. Truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it. ”Hear then the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in the heart; this is what was sown on the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet such a person has no root, but endures only for a while, and when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, that person immediately falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the lure of wealth choke the word, and it yields nothing. But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."

Psalm 131:2
A Day to Be a Child
Too often we forget that we are children of God. That means we should live and enjoy life like a child does. When was the last time you experienced the joyous spontaneity of a child? When was the last time you
• enjoyed poetry

• read a story to a child
• listened to a child read a story
• recited a nursery rhyme all the way through
• walked barefoot along a beach
• sang out loud
• harmonized with others around a piano
• threw a Frisbee
• tossed a softball
• played a board game with a child
• picked flowers and gave them as a gift
• rested contentedly in the arms of God

Thought for the Day
Children have not mastered our fine art of deception. They have not acquired the obstructions to faith that come with education; they possess instead unrefined wisdom, a gift from God.
