HERE AND NOW

We know that we can count on our own families to be there for us in good times and bad; to support and comfort us; to rejoice with us; to help us through the thousand natural shocks that we have to cope with on our life's journey. Then there is our parish family; not blood related, but bound to us by ties of shared worship, faith, prayer and genuine concern. Last week, I observed this dynamic up close at the wake and funeral for a dear friend of over forty years. The family members and close friends gathered--some travelling from long distances--to say their final farewells and celebrate the life of someone we will sorely miss. Stories were exchanged, memories rekindled and not surprisingly, there was much laughter. Friends who had not met in years renewed their friendship, recalled old times, and were comforted by each other's presence. Our friend is safely home; we are still on our journey. If he could send us a message, given his Irish roots, it might take the form of an Irish blessing: "May the road rise before you May the wind be always at your back May you be in heaven for half an hour before the devil knows you're dead." ~C. O'S

Do You Want to Read the Bible, But Don't Know How to Begin? If you have ever wanted to read the Bible, but didn't know where or how to begin, A Quick Journey Through The Bible Parish Study is for you. A Quick Journey Through The Bible makes reading the Bible not only easy, but exciting. In this study, you will learn the major people, places and themes of the Bible--getting the "big picture" of salvation history. Perhaps for the first time in your life, you will understand the overview of the Bible story. This, then, makes your Bible reading and even the Sunday Mass readings come alive like never before. A Quick Journey Through the Bible will be offered here at St. Joseph's beginning on Thursday, March 31, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. The course will be offered for eight Thursdays (excluding Holy Thursday) and ending on May 26, 2011. To learn more, please contact the Friary at 201-939-0457.

A Canon lawyer from the Archdiocese of Newark will discuss the most recent theology, guidelines and requirements for obtaining a Church annulment. The information will be presented in terms that all can understand. A question and answer period will conclude the session. Pre-registration is not necessary. This evening of information will be held at St. Theresa's Roman Catholic Church (school auditorium), 541 Washington Avenue, Kenilworth, at 7:30 p.m. For additional information, please call the Office of Family Life Ministries at 973-497-4327.

St. Joseph's Stands for Peace

This month marks 8 years that we have been gathering in front of the church on the second Sunday of each month in silent witness and prayer for peace. In the past year we have stood with as few as three and as many as twelve. Maybe you have read these announcements and thought, "Gee I should do that sometime." This could be the time--consider joining us once this Lent. We will meet next Sunday, March 13 at 8:00 pm in front of the church. It is very simple: We begin by praying the Prayer of St. Francis together. Then we stand in silence with lit candles for thirty minutes, each praying silently. We finish our time by joining together to say the Our Father. Think about it.

Eva's Village Tours

Join Eva's Village for a tour of the soup kitchen and sheltering programs. Eva's Village feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, treats the addicted and provides medical and dental care to the poor at 393 Main Street, Paterson. Easily accessible--right off Route 80 with secured parking. 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., March 22 Contact Felicia for info and to sign up: 973-523-6220, ext.226 [email protected]

RETURN TO GOD Lent 2011

"What if we looked at Lent as a season of growth: a season of planting and of slow, quiet development in our spiritual lives? Nourished during this season by prayer and meditation on God's word, strengthened by the discipline of fasting, stretched by our generous almsgiving and service to others, we will be ready to blossom into the new life of Easter." ~from The Almanac for Pastoral Liturgy (Liturgical

Training Publications)

Questions and Answers on the Mass Changes March 6, 2011 - Part 1 of 7 On November 27, 2011, the English speaking Church in the USA will begin using a new translation of the prayers used at Mass (The Roman Missal). A series of Questions and Answers on this topic will be posted here to help explain the thinking behind these changes. Please check back weekly. 1. Why is there a need for a new translation? Pope John Paul II issued the third edition of the Missale Romanum (the Latin text of the Roman Missal) during the Jubilee Year in 2000. This new edition included many new texts requiring translation. In addition, the experience of the years after the Second Vatican Council gave rise to a desire for more formal and literal translations of the original Latin texts. This new translation will employ the best of what we have learned about translation and liturgical language in two generations of celebrating the Liturgy in the vernacular. It will provide an opportunity to reflect ever more deeply on the eucharistic celebration that lies at the heart of the Church's life.

Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Living Stewardship Now Is your Church among the top five priorities in your life? If not, why not?

ARE YOU LAUGHING? Funny how long it takes to serve God for an hour, but how quickly a team plays sixty minutes of basketball. How people can't find the time to pray, yet have all the time in the world to talk to their friends, and actually complain when a homily is longer than ten minutes. It's strange how long a couple of hours spent at a church meeting can seem, but how short they seem when watching a movie. It may seem boring to read a chapter in the Bible, but it's easy to read a hundred pages of a best-selling novel. It's amazing the effort we make trying to get a front seat at any game or concert, yet we scramble for a back pew at Mass. And how many of us insist we need two or three weeks advance notice to fit a church event into our schedule, but can adjust for other activities in a heartbeat? Maybe you feel it is too hard to learn and pass on the faith, but consider how simple it is to understand and repeat gossip. So many people believe what the TV news says, and question what the Church says. And why does a one hundred-dollar bill looks so big in the offertory basket, but so small when taken to the mall? Ever wondered why you can send a thousand "jokes" through e-mail, but start sending messages regarding faith or Church teaching, and people think twice about sharing with you? How strange that everyone wants to go to heaven, provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything different or difficult. Funny how we always expect the Church to step up to help us, but we don't think we have to step up to help the Church. Funny, isn't it?
