    SAINT PAUL ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH NINETEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

    SUNDAY AUGUST 7, 2016

     

    Natural Family Planning Awareness Week is a national education campaign endorsed by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and supported by indi-vidual dioceses throughout the country. In the Diocese of Raleigh, Rowena Crist, NFP coordinator, clarified that Natural Family Planning is “not all about sex.”

    It is, rather, a gift from God to help couples grow closer to one another, while working together with God. And, she added, it’s about more than how many children a couple should have or how a couple may avoid or achieve preg-nancy. Crist wrote:  

    NFP encompasses chastity education. The two main virtues in marriage are charity (the virtue of sacrificing, self-giving love) and chastity (conjugal love shared only between a husband and wife.)

    Those with infertility, miscarriage and even adoption may be assisted by NFP. When couples learn and practice NFP, many different issues are brought to light. As they learn to chart their times of fertility and infertility, the woman’s gynecological health becomes evident through bio-markers. Couples who have suffered miscarriage may be helped through NFP, both physically and emotionally.

    Often, couples come to NFP because of infertility. Success rates for NaPro TECHNOLOGY® in infertility through charting with the Creighton Model Fertili-tyCare™ System is 20 - 40 percent with no medical intervention. Success rates for NaProTECHNOLOGY® in infertility is up to 80 percent with charting and medical or surgical restorative treatment.

    We need to acknowledge that NFP is a concrete way which God uses to bring life and love to families. At times, when it is obvious that the couple will not have their own biological child, NFP practitioners may gently lead the couple to the gift of adoption. NFP can provide a place where couples can share inti-mate and personal thoughts and feelings. At times, their practitioner is the one person who can provide compassion and support in accepting the couples’ infertility so that they may move forward.

    OUR FATHER IN FAITH

    The Letter to the Hebrews today sings a hymn of praise to Abraham and to his faith, upon which are founded the religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Abraham is called "father" in faith by more people on earth than anybody else, numerous as the sands of the seashore or the stars of the heavens. Hebrews tells us it was this foundational faith that led Abraham to obey God's call when he heard it, though he was called to journey to a land he did not know and told he would father a mighty race through a marriage he thought was barren. But Abraham's faith, the author of Hebrews tells us, was his realization of what he hoped for, and the evidence of what he could not see. How often are we, in simple daily events of our own Christian vocation, called to an unfamiliar place or told we are to do something we do not believe we can? How fortunate we are to have Father Abraham as our guide and example!

    TODAY'S READINGS

    First Reading -- Your ancestors waited in faith and courage for God's promised summons (Wisdom 18:6-9). Psalm -- Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own (Psalm 33). Second Reading -- Because of his faithful obedience to God's call, Abraham's descendants number as the stars (Hebrews 11:1-12). Gospel -- Keep watch and be prepared, for you do not know the day or the hour when the Son of Man will appear (Luke 12:32-48).

  • PASTOR’S CORNER Sunday, August 7, 2016

    Father Tully's sister, Catherine, and her husband, Rev Deacon Ralph Muscente, are in Krakow, in pilgrimage for World Youth Day 2016.

    There are also representatives of our Diocese accompanying the Holy Father. Pope pays tribute to Holocaust victims in silence, prayer 07-29-2016 By Junno Arocho Esteves, Catholic News Service OSWIECIM, Poland (CNS) -- Sitting with head bowed and eyes closed, Pope Francis paid silent tribute to the victims of one of the worst atrocities of the 20th century.

    The pope arrived July 29 at the Auschwitz-BirkenauNazi death camp in Oswiecim, an area now blanketed by green fields and empty barracks lined by barbed wire fences, remnants of a horror that remains embedded in history.

    Among those killed were St. Maximilian Kolbe, a Polish Conventual Franciscan friar, and Edith Stein, a Jewish philosopher who converted to Catholicism and became a Carmelite nun, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. Passing each plaque, Pope Francis reached the end of the monument where he set a candle in a large glass bowl and once again stood in silence, clasping his hands together over his chest in prayer. While he prayed, the voice of Poland's Chief Rabbi Michael Joseph Schudrich echoed Psalm 130 in Hebrew throughout the camp. The psalm begins with a cry to God: "From the depths I have cried out to you, O Lord."

    The event ended with the pope greeting 25 people honored as "righteous among the nations," a recognition of non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews from the Nazi extermination. Among those present for the solemn occasion was Rabbi Abraham Skorka, a longtime friend of the pope from Buenos Aires.

    Speaking to journalists July 28, Rabbi Skorka recalled a telephone conversation with Pope Francis in which he asked about the visit to Auschwitz.

    "The pope told me, "I am going to behave the same way I did in Armenia -- the places where people were killed -- I will remain silent,'" he said.

    "From a theological point of view and from a biblical point of view, this attitude means a lot," the rabbi said.

  • ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

    My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now

    receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite

    myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

    MOVIE OF THE MONTH Indescribable

    The true story of how the classic hymn “The Love of God” came to be,

    August 28th at 2:30PM in the Chapel

    Blynn Lehman is an adventurous boy determined to help his family face the financial struggles brought about by WWI. Since his father has already

    begun writing a song about the love of God, Blynn and his siblings try to help him finish it. Their comical failed attempts to write a verse for the song cause Blynn to realize he doesn’t really understand what it means to love God. As he grapples with feelings of failure and grief, it’s up to Frederick to help his son discover the truth about God’s love.

    This is a movie that will inspire you! For everyone who has ever experienced pain and questions about life, this film

    delivers the ultimate message: God loves us during our pain and His love is inexhaustible as well as…indescribable.

    CHARISMATIC RETREAT

    Have you been away from the Charismatic Renewal? Do you want

    to reconnect? Do you want to be refreshed? St. Paul’s One in the Spirit

    Prayer Group is sponsoring a charismatic retreat on October 19, 20 and 21, 2016. It will be

    held at Trinity Retreat Center in Salter Path NC.

    Please contact Karen Moore at [email protected] or 252.672.0490 for more information on registration.

    Food Supplement Distribution: Thanks to the Knights of Columbus for the funds providing distribution of foods and snacks for several destitute inmates who are without family and other monetary resources. This is the only means for disseminating supplemental nourishments to prisoners in confinement. Without aid from the Knights, it would have been impossible to order these nutritional supplements by the Aug. 1st deadline. Such

    assistance is a primary example of how Saint Paul’s parishioners comply with Pope Francis’s appeal for Catholics to participate in this Corporal Work of Mercy on behalf of our prisoner brethren. Dismas Union of Prayer: St Paul Prisoner Prayer Guides are

    now available in the Parish Office and from a box located at the Atrium counter. Prayers are included both for inmates and those outside the prison walls to recite daily prayers on behalf of our incarcerated brethren. Instructions [on page 25] also provide information on how to enroll with the Dismas Union

    of Prayer Ministry whereby you simply agree to pray regularly as part of this nation wide prayer effort. It is not practical for all to become prison volunteers, but this is an excellent way for ALL of Saint Paul’s parishioners to actively comply with Pope Francis’ initiative. Only through a unified coalition of outside prayer to support this prisoner outreach effort can we collectively participate in this Corporal Work of Mercy.

    FYI: There’s a TON of people down there thanking you that it is Friday.

  • Saint Paul Catholic Church had 20 volunteers help with Paint Your Heart Out, New Bern. They withstood 100 degree heat all week and they worked on many of the 50 homes that were updated this year. Thank you to all who participated in helping families in need. God Bless you!

    SENIOR CARING OUTREACH

    The parish is starting a group of caring volunteers to reach out to elderly or movement restricted parish members in need of staying connected to the Saint Paul Community. We will need volunteers to help our fellow parishioners with

    transportation, meals and weekly visits. You can help as much as you would like.

    If you are interested in Senior Caring Outreach, please call the church office. 638-1984

    OLIVE BRANCH STORE & LENDING LIBRARY

    Did you know that we have a good selection of St. Michael medals in

    stock for you to choose from? He is the patron saint of soldiers, police, doctors, mariners, paratroopers, and even grocers! He is known as a healing angel, and as a protector and the leader of the army of God against the forces of evil. Devotion to Michael the Archangel is one of the oldest devotions of the Church. Come see our items.

    Open Sun. 9–1 & Wed. 9–12 in the Family Life Center. All proceeds benefit St. Paul Catholic Church.

    The Knights of Columbus recently held a local collection for funds for their LAMB (Least Among My Brothers) project. This project was started in 1960 in North Carolina by Bill Scott and became a statewide program in 1974. This year we have collected over $3,000 with one more collection slated for October 21 and 22 at Wal-Mart. We will also be soliciting local businesses for contributions. 85% of the funds collected are distributed to local organizations within the tri-county area that administer to, educate and train our mentally challenged citizens. The remaining 15% is sent to the State LAMB Director for distribution to statewide charitable programs. Since 2012 we have collected and distributed to local organizations over $30,000. We wish to thank the citizens of Craven, Pamlico and Jones County for their generosity. We also thank Walmart, Food Lion and Harris Teeter for allowing us to collect at their stores. And finally

    thanks to the Brother Knights who passed out the Tootsie Rolls and solicited funds for this most worthwhile project. Pictured above are two of our dedicated Knights, Mike Farino and Nick Dalessandro, doing a great job.

    IS GOD CALLING YOU TO BE A CATECHIST?

    A catechist is one who is open to the Word, to God, to the church and has a “missionary openness” to the world. We are looking for people of

    faith willing to grow more deeply in your faith, in your relationship with God and willing to serve our parish community by passing on our most precious catholic faith to our children. Please ask the Lord for His guidance.

    Call Joy Harsen 252-229-2394 to find out about the vocation of a catechist.

    Next Monday, August 15th, is not a Holiday of Obligation as it falls on a Monday, but we will still

    celebrate the Assumption at 8 am and 12 Noon Masses.
