    Dear Friends in Christ, A special combined collection is being taken up in parishes across our Diocese in June. I ask you to reflect on the important work being done by the Church throughout the world and respond with a generous heart. It may be difficult to imagine because of the many resources available to most parishes in the United States, but the Church in Latin America struggles to meet the needs of their large and active Catholic population. Your support of the Collection for the Church in Latin America provides lay leadership training, catechesis, priestly and religious formation and other programs to build the faith of those who long to grow in their knowledge and love of Christ Jesus.

    With your help, the Catholic Relief Services Collection supports people in some of the most marginalized communities in the world. The collection assists in providing aid to victims of persecution and natural disasters and advocates for the people who are all too often discarded by society. Your help is their hope. I ask you to please support this special combined collection when it is taken up in your parish. May God bless you always for your concern for His people.

    NEXT WEEKEND’S COLLECTION

  • PENTECOST - A TIME OF AWAKENING June 3rd and 4th Page Three

    Today we celebrate Pentecost which marks the end of the Easter Season, fifty days of reflecting and meditating on the resurrection of Jesus and drawing inspiration from the events and activities of the early church. This is why we read from the Acts of the Apostles throughout the Easter Season at Mass. On that first Pentecost the early followers of Jesus gathered as their Lord commanded them, expecting the fulfillment of the promise he had made. We refer to Pentecost as the "birthday" of the missionary church. Their encounter with the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room changed them. As they were filled with the same Spirit which raised Jesus from the dead, so too are we. The Holy Spirit empowers us to carry forward in time the ongoing mission of Jesus Christ until he returns to complete the work of redemption. Every year this celebration of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost is an opportunity for us to renew our commitment to living the life of the Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit which makes it possible for us to live lives of sacrificial love, holiness and service in the world - a world into which God, the Father, continues to send His Son, through the Body of Christ, the Church - of which we are all members by virtue of our Baptism and Confirmation. This life of the Spirit is essential for our continued growth in the ways of faith. In reading the Acts of the Apostles there is no hesitation in noting that the Holy Spirit turned lives around and upside down. We read of Peter who was scared to offer witness to Jesus because he was intimidated by the recognition of his association with Jesus by a servant girl in the courtyard. Yet, after the descent of the Holy Spirit, we read of Peter standing toe to toe with the religious leaders of his time telling them that they had rejected the Messiah of God and that if they repented and believed they could be saved. Such courage and conviction in Peter is also evidenced in Paul and so many others who we encounter in the texts of the Sacred Scripture. An examination of the teaching of Jesus and the New Testament reveals the essential role of the Holy Spirit in the life and mission of the Church - and in the life and mission of every individual believer. Certainly there are Christians today who have that same Spirit alive in their witness to Jesus. Can we be counted among them? The purpose of Pentecost is the empowering of the Church with the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead! The Holy Spirit draws us into intimacy with the Lord. That intimacy is lived in our communion with the teachings of the Church. The Catechism of the Catholic Church, quoting St Augustine, affirms "What the soul is to the human body, the Holy Spirit is to the Body of Christ, which is the Church." (CCC # 797) St. Pope John XXIII prayed in 1962 for “a new Pentecost”. In preparation for the Second Vatican Council, he prayed for God to “Renew Your wonders in this our day, as by a new Pentecost. Grant to Your Church that, being of one mind and steadfast in prayer with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and following the lead of blessed Peter, it may advance the reign of our Divine Savior, the reign of truth and justice, the reign of love and peace. Amen.” This is a beautiful prayer, among the many others directed to the Holy Spirit, to immerse ourselves in the powerful graces bestowed by the Spirit. This anointing enables us to live our life in Jesus more fully causing us to be credible witnesses and, through that witness, evangelizers. Keep in mind that the mission of the church is to evangelize. This mandate she has received from her Lord at the time of His Ascension with the promise that He is with us always until the end of the age. To be effective in our evangelization we need a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit. While this is our focus as we celebrate Pentecost, it is not something confined to the great Feast of Pentecost. We should ask for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit each day. Anointed in His Spirit, Jesus can use us to bring others to know His saving message and love. In his homily for Pentecost 2015 Pope Francis said, “The world needs men and women who are not closed in on themselves, but filled with the Holy Spirit. Closing oneself off from the Holy Spirit means not only a lack of freedom; it is a sin. There are many ways one can close oneself off to the Holy Spirit: by selfishness for one’s own gain; by rigid legalism – seen in the attitude of the doctors of the law to whom Jesus referred as “hypocrites”; by neglect of what Jesus taught; by living the Christian life not as service to others but in the pursuit of personal interests; and in so many other ways. The world needs the courage, hope, faith and perseverance of Christ’s followers. The world needs the fruits of the Holy Spirit: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Gal 5:22). The gift of the Holy Spirit has been bestowed upon the Church and upon each one of us, so that we may live lives of genuine faith and active charity, that we may sow the seeds of reconciliation and peace. Strengthened by the Spirit and his many gifts, may we be able uncompromisingly to battle against sin and corruption, devoting ourselves with patient perseverance to the works of justice and peace.” Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts and renew the face of the earth through our witness to Jesus. Peace, Fr. Richard

    READINGS FOR NEXT SUNDAY

    First Reading: Exodus 34:4b-6, 8-9 The Lord appears to Moses on Mount Sinai and proclaims to him that he Lord is a “merciful God...slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity.” Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 13:11-13 Paul exhorts the Corinthians to live in peace and harmony, and for the first time, invokes the Blessed Trinity. Gospel: John 3:16-18 In this beautiful passage, Jesus tells Nicodemus that God loved his people so much that he “gave his only son.” Jesus reveals to Nicodemus that anyone who believes in him will not die but will enjoy life with him for all eternity.

    May 18, 2017 Dear Fr. Richard, Thank you for your generosity in throwing a Baby Shower recently at St. Vincent de Paul on our behalf. Your generous parishioners gave diapers, a changing table, a stroller, $25 BuyBaby Gift Card, other baby items, and rosaries for Good Counsel’s mothers and babies! God’s compassion is at work at Good Counsel because of you and your parish.

    I’d like to let you know how your kindness helps Good Counsel mothers and babies. Martha, a graduate of Good Counsel’s program asked me to say “Thank You!” for the love you have shown her and her baby. Martha arrived at our home, abandoned by her family because of her pregnancy, and in a moment of despair she thought seriously about getting an abortion. Thank God, a worker in a hospital encouraged her to contact Good Counsel and her daughter was then born!

    Now married to a supportive young man, Martha is a student at Suffolk County Community College with a major in Social Science. On the Dean’s List, her goal is to earn a degree in social work. Martha says she wakes up every day thankful that she wasn’t forced to go to a shelter. She thanks God for placing her in a real home at Good Counsel—with a Case Manager to help her and a House Manager as her guide—and she believes that she would not have been able to reach her milestones if it weren’t for the nurturing she received at Good Counsel. Thank you for allowing our mothers and children to have bright futures!

    Please thank and remind everyone at the parish to connect online: www.goodcounselhomes.org as well as on Facebook at Good Counsel Homes. Our 24/7 helpline is 1-800-723-8331 for any pregnant mom in need. Most importantly, please remember everyone at Good Counsel in your prayers and know that everyone at St. Vincent’s is remembered in my prayers, those of my family, and all in our Good Counsel family.

    God bless you!
