Vocation reflections

Today’s Gospel teaches us that anyone who aspires to greatness must serve the needs of others.  Greatness lies not in worldly accomplishments and honors, but rather in following Jesus’ example of loving service, which is the giving of self for others.  Perhaps the Lord is calling you to serve as a Priest, Religious Sister or Brother, or Deacon.

 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 Lord is King and there is no other.  We are to render to God, therefore, fitting praise and service, as is God’s due.  God’s word to us, in turn, is a matter of power and strength, to be lived with conviction of heart.

Realizing Peace In The Lord

A week of prayer and reflection will take place in Resurrection Parish, at St. Michael’s Church, 9th St. & Hamilton Park on October 20-27.  This builds on the long standing tradition that St. Michael’s inherited when St. Lucy’s was closed years ago on an annual and ongoing novena to St. Jude.  The theme chosen this year is not only timely but important for us as Catholics and Americans: “Realizing the Peace of Christ”.

Evening services will begin with evening mass, followed by a holy hour and conference and end about 8:30 p.m. with benediction.


Separated/Divorced Support Group

 ALL Souls Day

The month of November is dedicated to All Faithfully Departed with All Souls Day being celebrated on November 2nd.  This day, especially, is a traditional time for visiting graves of loved ones.  For this reason, we ask that you take the time to please remember to fill in the names of your dearly departed family members and friends whom you would like to have remembered during the Masses of the All Souls Novena as well as during the Masses offered over the balance of the month.  These envelopes may be placed in the depository next to the altar marked “All Souls” or placed in the collection basket so they may be bundled and placed on the altar for the duration of the month.

Personal Meditation 

Personal Meditation October 20th, 2002

Mt 22:15-21

Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said. So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality. Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?" But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, "Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites? Show me the coin used for the tax." And they brought him a denarius. Then he said to them, "Whose head is this, and whose title?" They answered, "The emperor's." Then he said to them, "Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor's, and to God the things that are God's."

Psalm 84:7

Living With God’s

When faced with an overwhelming challenge, problem, issue, or crisis, don’t forget that God has promised to give you

• strength beyond your strength

• power beyond your power

• hope beyond your hopes

• love beyond your own love

• wisdom beyond your wisdom

• energy beyond your energies

• courage beyond your courage

• faith beyond your faith

• endurance beyond your endurance

• ability beyond your abilities

Remember today’s psalm when you feel helpless or hopeless. God’s people “go from strength to strength.”
