4 From the Pastor s Desk November 14/15 Signs in the Heavens Dear Parish Family, It was 50 years ago this week that an incorrectly set circuit breaker at a power plant in upstate New York tripped. Its failure caused a cascade of similar events that continued until just about all of New England and our metropolitan area were plunged into darkness. Needless to say, countless people were thrown into panic as the grid became unglued! In Queens, where I grew up, people scrambled for flashlights and candles and tried to find out what was happening. Local stations were off the air and people tuned to distant stations hoping to learn what happened and, most of all, when the lights would come back on. There were lots of things that weren't working: subways, refrigerators, elevators, radios and televisions; but what most people remember was the lights! When you are used to lights everywhere, the dark can be pretty intimidating. Some remember only the fright and inconvenience. Others remember the night with some affection. It was quiet. Families gathered around candles in the kitchen. Ordinary life came to a halt. I remember going outside to look at the sky. On ordinary nights in Queens, the streetlights and the glow of the city made stars barely visible. But that night was just beautiful. The stars were everywhere and the Milky Way was clearly visible over Manhattan. An event that interrupts our usual pattern of life always helps us notice things more clearly. Sometimes we can see them coming. Sometimes we need to pay more attention. In the gospel today Jesus reminds his disciples that they are very good at interpreting signs. They can see storms coming, seed about to sprout, and the nearness of the harvest. But they are not so astute at seeing what is happening to them as they journey with Jesus toward Jerusalem, the city of his dying and rising. In Mark s gospel this discussion of signs is the last discourse of Jesus before his anointing at Bethany and the beginning of his passion. Remember that the resurrection happens to Jesus and also to the disciples. Jesus wonders if these followers who are so good at ordinary signs can sense the life that is about to take fire in them. In a couple of weeks we are going to seal the two doors at the beginning of our main aisle. They are being closed so that we can open them with great ceremony at the beginning of the Holy Year of Mercy on December 13th. Their closing will get your attention. It will be a little inconvenient. You will have to go toward one of the other doors. I will be asked a million times: What is wrong with the doors? I can t wait to explain. Their opening will be a sign. At a church an open door is always a sign of welcome. In this year it will be a sign of welcome expressed in God s mercy to us and our mercy to each other. Some signs are easy to see and some require more attention. Be attentive and see that your life, and your own kindness, are signs of God s mercy. Sincerely yours in Christ, Rev. Michael A. Vetrano, Pastor

7 BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE November is the Month of the Holy Souls. Our church has the custom of giving a place of honor to a book in which parishioners write the names of their deceased. We recall and pray for our beloved dead, trusting in God's eternal love and mercy to welcome them into the glory of heaven. We invite you to share this time of remembrance by writing in the book the names of those friends and loved ones who have fallen asleep in Christ. The book will be conveniently located in the church's center aisle.

10 Prevención del Cáncer - Mujeres! Para hacer una cita para una mamografía gratis llame a la trabajadora, Claudia, en el número Seguro de Salud para Niños - La representante de Fidelis Care, Konny Tapias, estará en el Apostolado Hispano los miércoles de las 10 AM hasta la 1:00 PM, para ayudar con seguro de salud para los niños. Rincón de Información APOSTOLADO HISPANO Tomado de El Papa Francisco habla sobre de las Familias - Quisiera marcar dos puntitos de la familia en los que quisiera que se tuviera un especial cuidado. No sólo quisiera, tenemos que tener un especial cuidado. Los niños y los abuelos. Los niños y los jóvenes son el futuro, son la fuerza, los que llevan adelante. Son aquellos en los que ponemos esperanza. Los abuelos son la memoria de la familia. Son los que nos dieron la fe, nos transmitieron la fe. Cuidar a los abuelos y cuidar a los niños es la muestra de amor no sé si más grande, pero yo diría más promisoria de la familia, porque promete el futuro. Un pueblo que no saber cuidar a los niños y un pueblo que no sabe cuidar a los abuelos, es un pueblo sin futuro, porque no tiene la fuerza y no tiene la memoria que lo lleve adelante. La familia es bella, pero cuesta, trae problemas. En la familia a veces hay enemistades. El marido se pelea con la mujer, o se miran mal, o los hijos con el padre. Les sugiero un consejo: Nunca terminen el día sin hacer la paz en la familia. En una familia no se puede terminar el día en guerra. Que Dios los bendiga. Que Dios les dé fuerzas. Que Dios los anime a seguir adelante. Cuidemos la familia. Defendamos la familia porque ahí se juega nuestro futuro. Gracias. Que Dios los bendiga y recen por mí, por favor. Tomado de w2.vatican.va.

12 Life Corner :: SHJM Respect Life Ministry RESOURCES FOR THOSE SEEKING AN ALTERNATIVE TO ABORTION: Rockville Centre Diocese, , ext.626, Priests for Life, , Birthright, , Healing post-abortion: Rachel's Vineyard, , The Faith that Does Justice Did You Know... since 2001 there has been an organization, called Generation Life, headquartered in the Philadelphia area, dedicated to fostering a culture of life for teens? They provide speakers for schools and parishes, promoting chastity, and encouraging our youth to lead lives of virtue. For more information go to or call Reflections On the Gospel from Pax Christi November 15, 2015 The end is approaching, at least the end of the liturgical year, and Sunday s readings make that point very clear. As a matter of fact, if we consider the forewarnings of doom and gloom and look at our own news, it might seem that not just the end of the liturgical year is near. So should we be depressed, despondent, frightened? Should we rest assured that we are among the saved and not worry? Or should we see this time as opportunity to resist both resignation and overconfidence and use it in the service of one another, leading many to justice, alleviating distress and disgrace as much as possible? Turkeys Wanted!! Human Resources of the Hamptons needs donations of turkeys for their holiday baskets. If you can donate a turkey please contact Hilton Crosby at
