Why not celebrate a counter cultural Christmas? 
Christmas should not be an occasion for selfishness:
Assuming that a counter cultural Christmas would mirror thepersonal lifestyle of Jesus Christ. I think we can say that it wouldbe a lot simpler. The first Christmas was radically simple. Wearytravelers find shelter in a stable. Child is born, and his parentsare greeted by poor shepherds (outcasts living on the margins of their society) and angels who proclaim “peace on Earth, Good willtowards all.” Family, hospitality and solidarity with all humankindare the profoundly simple themes that surround the Lord’s birth.

From One of Our Former Pastors
December 5, 2010I was called by Archbishop McCarrick one afternoon,while participating at a Finance Council meeting at St.Mary’s, Dumont, asking me if I would become pastor of Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish in Maywood. I said yesI would, having been at St. Mary’s for 10 years at thattime, 3 of which I worked full time with Family LifeMinistries, in the area of Separated and Divorced. I later learned Bishop John Smith had suggested my name tothe Archbishop, having served under him at St. Mary’sbefore he became Vicar General in the Archdiocese.I arrived on November 5th for the Saturday eveningMass. It was incredibly dark in the church, so on Mondaymorning after the 9:00 Mass, a friend and myself startedchanging all the light bulbs that were out. Later Mondayafternoon, I was in the cafeteria for a debate on thepresidential election (1988) where I looked around andasked Sr. Teresa, the 8th grade teacher at the time, whenthe cafeteria was last painted. She said she would findout and get back to me. Her response was 17 years. Igot our maintenance man, John Baxter, and the two of usstarted painting until it was finished. After Thanksgiving Istarted on Sr. Louise’s office. Then a number of familieswho had children in the school would come in after work,and they finished the entire school. When I arrived atQueen of Peace, we had a little over 160 children in theschool. During my second year there, we reached thenumber set to keep open a Catholic school. In January of that school year, I had a meeting with the school parentsand informed them of the possibility that our school wouldhave to be merged with a nearby Catholic schoolbecause of dwindling numbers. At the end of that schoolyear, we had 105 children signed up for the upcomingyear. I informed the diocese, and they thought it wouldbe better to close and combine with a neighboring schoolto have a stronger school community. Holy Trinity schoolwas looking for a partner school, but the decision wasmade to merge with St. Peter’s school in River Edge. Our children traveled to St. Peter’s each morning. They hadmore children than Queen of Peace, and we had to pay tosupport the effort to keep the combined school open. Thenuns, under the direction of Sr. Anne Zappatta, and then,Sr. Louise Del Carpine, did a wonderful job, while theschool remained open. In my first year there, the layteachers were paid a salary of $5,000 or $6,000, withoutany hospital benefits. My second year there they werebeing paid $14,000 or $15,000 with benefits. It alsomeant the dissolution of the school.While I was at Queen of Peace, my health suffered. Iwas hospitalized for diabetes with a blood sugar count of 650 (80 to 120 is normal). I spent a week in the hospitaland was back on the job. My heart was gettingincreasingly worse, as well. My problem was difficultywith three heart valves. So I wrote to ArchbishopMcCarrick, asking to go back to the ranks as anassociate.I certainly enjoyed my years at Our Lady Queen of Peace. I remember sitting in my room and watching oneevening as the electrical lines were pulled down during verystrong winds, and the power went out. For three days welived without power and lights, until they got everything backon line.Lastly, I’d like to thank the people of the parish for alltheir help and assistance in getting things restarted in theparish. It was our good fortune to get the school rented outand giving the parish a much-needed source of revenue tohelp with the other costs and expenses.May God continue to bless you all for your goodnessand faithfulness.God Bless You!Father Don McLaughlin
