33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

November 13, 2016

The Pastor’s Desk Dear Friends, May the Lord give you peace! I just returned from voting. Since this column is due to the bulletin editor by Tuesday morning, I don’t know who the next President of the United States will be. However, by the time you are reading this we all will know. A long, vitriolic, divisive, difficult and maybe even a bit un-American campaign season is behind us, but now the real work begins. It’s time for us Americans to unite and heal our nation and move forward. As Catholics we have a special obligation to lead the way in reconciliation. So here are a few of my thoughts as we move ahead. First of all, no matter what you may have heard or read from any misinformed priest, bishop or surrogate, no one is going to hell based on their vote for President. That is completely contrary to Catholic teaching. Voting/following your conscience is not worthy of eternal condemnation! It is our patriotic duty to accept the legitimacy of the election and restore confidence in our democracy. It is contrary to Catholic teaching to fan the flames of hatred against Muslims or any religious group. It is contrary to Catholic teaching to fan the flames of hatred against immigrants, minorities, the disabled and women. It is contrary to Catholic teaching to undermine the dignity of the human person from the moment of conception to natural death. This includes, but is not limited to, abortion, euthanasia, poverty, hunger and homelessness. We must care for the human person every step of the way. We must recommit ourselves to the Catholic and American value of solidarity within society. Venomous and personal attacks on one another only serve to tear down the person and damage our solidarity within society. We must return to the basic American principle of respecting one another’s views when they differ from our own without demonizing the person. In short, sisters and brothers, we must work toward reconciliation in our nation at every turn. We must work to include all people, regardless of faith, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability or even immigration status in our American way of life. That is not only our American duty, it is our Catholic duty. Let us pray for our new President, our nation and our world. May the United States always be leaders in peace, the first to welcome those in need and a beacon of hope for all the world. And now, in honor of our veterans who made the American way of life possible, a reflection: Is Veterans Day really a holiday or is it a holy day? It’s a holy day when we reflect on the many women and men who serve in the military and put their own lives in danger for the freedom we enjoy. (The Pastor’s Desk is continued in the next column)

Page 4

It’s a holy day when we stop our daily life routines to celebrate at a parade, pause our businesses and close our schools to show joy and respect for what our veterans have done for us and our nation, for the rights and freedoms that they have won and protected through all these years. It’s a holy day when we remember and give thanks to God for our veterans who have returned safely from areas of conflict and war. It’s a holy day when we stop everything we are doing and consider what government and military benefits, or lack thereof, our veterans who are returning from service find here at home. It’s a holy day when we feel the pain of guilt and experience the sadness for those veterans who are homeless, disabled from combat wounds, affected by mental, emotional and spiritual agonies and are left alone in their suffering. It’s a holy day when we mourn our own selfishness for forgetting to thank and be ever grateful to those veterans who have served our country yet feel unappreciated, lonely and forgotten. To all veterans, today and every day, we say thank you for protecting us and keeping us safe. We bless you, pray for you and pledge to never forget the sacrifices you have made for our country and for us. It was a great week at St. Mary’s and I’m looking forward to another one to come. Thanks for all you do for us and have a great week yourself! Pace e Bene, Fr. Frank Sevola, OFM Pastor Fr. Frank can be reached at [email protected]

Advent Mornings of Prayer Saturdays, December 3, 10, 17 Catherine Spina Hall, 9:00 - 11:00 AM Led by Fr. Joe Come reflect, discuss and pray!!!

Lectio Divina


ectio Divina (Latin for Divine Reading) is a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to increase the knowledge of God’s Word. It is not a theological analysis, but a sharing time for reflection and interpretation. On three Mondays during Advent [December 5, 12 and 19] from 7:00 - 8:00 PM in the Prayer Room, we will use the Gospel for the following Sunday as our point of reference. The hour-long practice goes back to monastic times when the same scripture passage is read three times with a period of silence after each reading, followed by participants sharing their insight into God’s Word (if they choose). This is based on two beliefs: 1) silent time gives time to listen to God and 2) each of us carries a piece of the Good News within our hearts.


his is the 39th year of St. Mary’s Giving Tree; we again invite you to share the Gift of Christmas with those less fortunate. Please consider selecting an ornament from our Giving Trees [hanging in church, the Carnevale Center and the Parish Office] to help someone in need experience a special gift this Christmas Season. Please make a check payable to St. Mary’s and drop it off [with the ornament] in the Giving Tree box at the Parish Center. You can also mail your check [with the ornament] to St. Mary’s Parish. [Gift cards will again be provided by St. Mary’s School Scrip Program.] We thank you for your support and remind all that your checks and ornaments are due in the Parish Office by Wednesday, December 7.

fuese castigada por el noble germánico, según la leyenda Dios hizo convertir el contenido del cesto en rosas.

JUEVES 24 DE NOVIEMBRE 2016 – Día de Acción de Gracias

Los domingos a las 9:00 AM en el Centro Carnevale (10 Lenox Ave, Pompton Lakes, NJ). Durante el año celebramos varias eucaristías en la iglesia principal. Algunas celebraciones son bilingües como la Fiesta de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, la Vigilia Pascual, y el Día de Acción de Gracias (Thanksgiving)

En aquel tiempo, cuando Jesús iba de camino a Jerusalén…le salieron al encuentro diez leprosos, los cuales se detuvieron a lo lejos y a gritos le decían: “Jesús, maestro, ten compasión de nosotros”. Al verlos, Jesús les dijo: “Vayan a presentarse a los sacerdotes”. Mientras iban de camino, quedaron limpios de la lepra. Uno de ellos, al ver que estaba curado, regresó, alabando a Dios en voz alta, se postró a los pies de Jesús y le dio las gracias. Ése era un samaritano. Entonces dijo Jesús: “¿No eran diez los que quedaron limpios? ¿Dónde están los otros nueve? ¿No ha habido nadie, fuera de este extranjero, que volviera para dar gloria a Dios?” Después le dijo al samaritano: “Levántate y vete. Tu fe te ha salvado”. (Lucas 17:11-19) Los católicos no sólo debemos celebrar el Día de Acción de Gracias con profundo espíritu de oración, agradecimiento y alegría, sino que la celebración de este día nos debe llevar a recordar que nuestra vida como católicos es una constante acción de gracias. A través de nuestros actos de la vida cotidiana, que deben todos ellos dar gloria a Dios, y de manera especial a través de la celebración de la Eucaristía.

Misa en Español

“Entonces le preguntaron: "Maestro, ¿cuándo va a ocurrir esto y cuál será la señal de que ya está a punto de suceder?" Él les respondió: "Cuídense de que nadie los engañe, porque muchos vendrán usurpando mi nombre y dirán: 'Yo soy el Mesías. El tiempo ha llegado'. Pero no les hagan caso. Cuando oigan hablar de guerras y revoluciones, que no los domine el pánico, porque eso tiene que acontecer, pero todavía no es el fin… Pero antes de todo esto los perseguirán a ustedes y los apresarán; los llevarán a los tribunales y a la cárcel, y los harán comparecer ante reyes y gobernadores, por causa mía. Con esto darán testimonio de mí. Grábense bien que no tienen que preparar de antemano su defensa, porque yo les daré palabras sabias, a las que no podrá resistir ni contradecir ningún adversario de ustedes.” Lucas 21: 5-19

JUEVES 17 DE NOVIEMBRE 20156– Memoria de Santa Isabel de Hungría

Isabel se quedó viuda siendo aún joven, dedicó su riqueza a los pobres, construyó hospitales. A partir de su canonización en 1236 se convirtió en un símbolo de caridad cristiana para toda Europa. Santa Isabel se suele comúnmente representar como una dama vestida con ropas reales y corona cargando un cesto lleno de rosas. Esto es una alegoría al milagro de las rosas que ocurrió cuando estaba obsequiando pan a los pobres y fue sorprendida por su cuñado Conrado de Turingia.
