First Sunday of Advent November 28, 2010 “You . . . must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” — Matthew 24:44 READINGS FOR THE WEEK Monday: Tuesday: Wednesday: Thursday: Friday: Saturday: Sunday: Is 4:2-6; Mt 8:5-11 Rom 10:9-18; Mt 4:18-22 Is 25:6-10a; Mt 15:29-37 Is 26:1-6; Mt 7:21, 24-27 Is 29:17-24; Mt 9:27-31 Is 30:19-21, 23-26; Mt 9:35 — 10:1, 5a, 6-8 Is 11:1-10; Ps 72; Rom 15:4-9; Mt 3:1-12

STEWARDSHIP: A Reflection: (Continued from last week) Your words might even inspire us to match our diners out with a donation for world hunger. When we buy new clothes to stuff in the closet and wear twice a year we might even give alms to clothe the naked or use one of our automobiles to drive the elderly. It won’t be a drastic change in our lifestyle, Lord, because we aren’t radicals like you. On the other hand we want at least a little treasure in the bank you brag about where the thieves do not come near or moths destroy. Lord, disturb our comfortable ways a little. Help us to comfort the world. Thank you for using the weekly collection envelopes. As a reminder, please fill in amount enclosed in the space provided on the front of the envelope and do NOT tape your envelopes. This will help facilitate the processing. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please remember to place Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish in your Will. Those who generously did this in the past have helped us to stay out of a heavy debt.

PARISH EVENTS

Deacon Joe Mantineo

November 28, 2010

My dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, today, November 28, is the first day of Advent and therefore it is the first day in our Church’s liturgical year. I want to thank Fr. Larry for giving me an opportunity to write a column for this very special day. Advent for many is, sadly, the forgotten season because after Thanksgiving many are in the mad rush to complete all of our gift purchases in time for Dec. 25th. In fact some may have begun this annual marathon back in October when home centers and pharmacies started putting out decorations for Christmas. Yes, sadly some might say, “Who has time for Advent.” Hopefully that is not the case with you. Advent is a beautiful season of preparation when we Christians spiritually prepare for Christmas by recalling how Jesus came into the world two thousand years ago. During Advent we also prepare for the second coming of Jesus at the end of time. It is a good time as well to prepare for when our mortal life ends and we will hopefully be found not wanting, but rather welcomed by Jesus for all eternity into his Heavenly Kingdom. During this season, many Christians traditionally have an Advent wreath in their homes, as we have in our Church. They perhaps light the candles in the evening before supper and recite prayers remembering the Light of the World, Who was born into this world to free us from our slavery to the darkness of sin. If you would like more information on creating an Advent wreath for your home and prayers that you can say I suggest you visit the following Knights of Columbus web site: http://www.kofc.org/un/en/service/church/christmas/action _steps.html Some Christians follow the tradition of the Advent calendar. They use this special calendar by opening on each day of Advent a little flap that reveals in a picture part of the story of Joseph and Mary up to the birth of the Baby Jesus. They can be purchased in card stores or you can make your own. It is a great way of teaching the real story of Christmas to children. In this age of technology here are two good web sites for online interactive Advent calendars: http://www.smmp.com/Advent/Advent.php http://www.ewtn.com/devotionals/Advent/29.html When my wife and I got married, we made the Advent wreath an annual tradition in our home. When our children came along, we added the Advent calendar to our family tradition. As the children grew, they looked forward to celebrating Advent each year by lighting the candles on the wreath, reciting the prayers and opening the little windows on the calendar each evening before supper. Our Lady Queen of Peace began an Advent tradition three years ago. We call it Silent Nights, evenings during Advent when our Church is open so that you can retreat from the hustle, bustle and insanity of the shopping malls

for the peace and serenity that only Jesus can give. There isn’t any service, just some sacred music playing softly in the background and the soft glow of candles illuminating the interior of the Church. If you haven’t in the past, why not take advantage of this beautiful opportunity to spend some time with Jesus and allow Him to relieve you of the tension and even the depression that comes especially at this time of the year. The schedule for the evenings when our Church will be open for the Silent Nights can be found in this bulletin. (Dec. 1st, 15th, & 22nd) A final thought. When I was small my parish did not have a parochial school. I went to Sunday school and was taught my faith through the Baltimore Catechism. Question number 6 asked, “Why did God make you?” The answer was and will always be, “God made me to know Him, to love Him and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in the next.” I know you love God and try to serve Him by following the example of Jesus who taught us to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the lonely and the imprisoned. But how well do you know Him? Why not make a resolution today at the beginning of Advent and our church year to try to get to know the God who loves you as if you were the only person in the world? How? Consider studying the Bible. As we begin Advent and the new church year, our Lectionary will be using the Gospel according to St. Matthew. Tomorrow our Bible study group will begin a 13 week study of the Gospel of Matthew. I would like to personally invite you to join us on Monday mornings at 9:30 AM in the lower rectory or Monday evenings at 7:30 PM in our school. Our sessions are about 90 minutes long. Another way to get to know God is through the lives of the Saints. With this in mind, consider coming to our St. Pio Prayer Service on the first Friday of each month at 7:30 PM. There is a recitation of the Rosary, veneration of a first class relic of Padre Pio, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. After the prayer service we meet in the auditorium for coffee, cake, fellowship and videos on the life of St. Pio. Our newest member, who lived in Virginia, heard about it from her cousin who is a member of our parish. Two months ago while, visiting her cousin, she came to the prayer service. She was so impressed she convinced her husband to sell their home in Virginia. They moved to Maywood and became members of our parish, just to attend the prayer service. Why not join her and the 50 regulars who come each first Friday? The next one is this Friday, December 3rd. A most blessed Advent to all of you, Deacon Joe
Why should I register in the parish?- All members of the parish should be formally registered as members of the parish. However, you MUST be formally registered if you wish to arrange a Baptism, a Confirmation, or a Wedding in the parish Church. You MUST also be formally registered if you wish to register in the Parish School or the Religious Education (CCD) Program. You MUST be a registered member of the parish for at least three months before you can obtain a Sponsor Certificate or schedule a Baptism or a Wedding. 3

St. Andrew / Feast day: November 30
Patron of Fisherman

Dates Nov. 28th through Dec. 5th, 2010
Sunday - FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT Nov. 28th 8:00 am Souls in Purgatory 10:00 am George Malandruccolo 12:00 pm Ann Turchyn Monday Nov. 29th Nov. 30th 8:30 am 8:30 am Juan Padilla James & Margaret O’Rourke & Deceased Family Members Bud Rauch Bernard V. & May Zambelli Cesar & John Aguilar (L) Tuesday - St. Andrew, Apostle

Wednesday Dec. 1st Thursday Dec. 2nd Dec. 3rd 8:30 am 8:30 am First Friday - St. Francis Xavier, Priest 8:30 am

Andrew, like his brother Simon Peter, was a fisherman. He became a disciple of the great St. John the Baptist, but when John pointed to Jesus and said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" Andrew understood that Jesus was greater. At once he left John to follow the Divine Master. Jesus knew that Andrew was walking behind him, and turning back, he asked, "what do you seek?" When Andrew answered that he would like to know where Jesus lived, Our Lord replied, "Come and see." Andrew had been only a little time with Jesus when he realized that this was truly the Messiah. From then on, he chose to follow Jesus. Andrew was thus the first disciple of Christ. Next, Andrew brought his brother Simon (St. Peter) to Jesus and Jesus received him, too, as His disciple. At first the two brothers continued to carry on their fishing trade and family affairs, but later, the Lord called them to stay with Him all the time. He promised to make them fishers of men, and this time, they left their nets for good. It is believed that after Our Lord ascended into Heaven, St. Andrew went to Greece to preach the gospel. He is said to have been put to death on a cross, to which he was tied, not nailed. He lived two days in that state of suffering, still preaching to the people who gathered around their beloved Apostle. Two countries have chosen St. Andrew as their patron - Russia and Scotland.

Non-gluten hosts
A few members of the parish have inquired in regard to having non-gluten hosts made available to them. Happily we now have them. For those who wish to receive Holy Communion with this Altar bread, we ask the following:
1. that you contact the rectory and advise us which Mass you will be attending. 2. that you see the priest that is having the Mass at least 10 minutes before hand. 3. that you sit near the front of the church so you can be the first person to receive from the celebrant. 4. if you have called the rectory to let us know that you have this special need but are unable to attend the Mass you have stated, let us know that you will not be present.

The recent Knights of Columbus Food drive was a big success! Over 90 bags of food were delivered to the Helping Hands Ministry at Sacred Heart Church in Rochelle Park. The need is so great that as soon as the donations were delivered they went out to many families in need. Thanks to all who helped with the Food Drive. A reminder that food is collected each weekend throughout the year to be given to Helping Hands in Rochelle Park.

THE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP ACT Catholic Schools provide an important educational option in NJ by educating students of all economic incomes. Catholic Schools also are a needed resource for the mission of the church. The Opportunity Scholarship Act (S-1872/A-2810) offers opportunities for parents who might be unable to send their children to a Catholic school or another nonpublic school in NJ. In a series of questions and answers, the NJ Catholic Conference, (which has consistently supported this bill) offers a response to misinformation that has been promulgated in many public forums. Please call, write, or email your legislator and ask that they support the Opportunity Scholarship Act. The most convenient way to do this is to go to http://www.capwiz.com/njcathconf/home and click on Take Action. Q. Why should I be interested in S-1872/A-2810, if my district has no chronically failing schools? A. All citizens of NJ need to be interested in the quality of education offered in all districts in the State. Taxes paid to the State support districts whose tax base is not sufficient to cover their needs. A large portion of these State dollars go toward support of public education in the districts with chronically failing schools. All citizens need to be aware of the implications of paying for chronically failing schools whose students graduate (or drop out), because their future success will cost taxpayers even more money for things like retraining or government assistance to those unable to obtain employment. All NJ citizens benefit when we offer these students an option to go to a school where they can be successful.

**Please Look for OLQP Youth Ministry Facebook Page (see website) ** www.olqp.org

Upcoming Service Opportunity Dates: All Confirmation Candidates are required to complete 20 service hours during the 2010-2011 school term. Contact Tom Viola, Youth Minister at OLQP.youth@gmail.com to sign up as soon as possible.
