And brethren, there is a regular epidemic of diver’s disease among us.” (To be continued next week) Our Stewardship of Treasure for 12/19/10 amounted to $7,566.00 Our Children’s Collection = $60.00 Christmas Decorations = $118.00 Maintenance = $3,047.00

MASSES FOR EPIPHANY
January 2, 2011 Dear Parish Family, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today we celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord. We celebrate the Magi traveling from a faraway land to honor the newborn King. He came not just for His own race, but for all the people of the world. Epiphany means “manifestation”. Throughout my life (first as a young man, then a seminarian and now as a priest) I’ve always enjoyed sitting in front of the Nativity Set. The only lights on (whether in the living room of my parents’ home or in the church) would be the lights on the Christmas tree and the lights illuminating the crèche. I would sit there quietly reflecting on the beautiful scene before me. I would look at the various characters that are part of this familiar story and reflect on their role. Today I want to reflect on the magi coming bearing gold, frankincense and myrrh. Each nativity scene shows the magi either seated on camels or leading them close to their destination. The story of the magi never is how they got there, though. They could have traveled on foot, in chariots, or by camel or horseback – we just don’t know The reason we keep putting them on camels in our art is because of Isaiah’s prophecy. He predicted that caravans of camels would fill Jerusalem, and that people from the East would come bearing gold and frankincense: “Rise up in splendor, Jerusalem!”, he proclaims. “Your light has come.” In Matthew’s story, the magi realize that Jerusalem’s light has come. They follow the star and bring their gifts: gold – because Christ is a King, frankincense as an acknowledgment of Christ’s future priestly role, and the myrrh (which was used to prepare a corpse for burial) probably anticipated Christ’s death on the cross. By telling about these gifts, Matthew turns our attention back to Isaiah. Reading that prophecy, we, Christians, recognize the light Isaiah mentions as the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. When we see the magi seated on camels, we are remembering Isaiah – a major character in our Advent readings. When we remember this important prophet, we remember the light that came to shatter the darkness of our world. The Epiphany celebrates the fact that the mystery of God’s love is now open to the whole world. That is the epiphany, the revelation of God’s love and goodness to every one of us. Thank you for your Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure and for all that you do for our parish! Love, Fr. Larry

St. Genevieve was born about the year 422, at Nanterre near Paris. She was seven years old when St. Germain of Auxerre came to her native village on his way to great Britain to combat the heresy of Pelagius. The child stood in the midst of a crowd gathered around the man of God, who singled her out and foretold her future sanctity. At her desire the holy Bishop led her to a church, accompanied by all the faithful, and consecrated her to God as a virgin. When Attila was reported to be marching on Paris, the inhabitants of the city prepared to evacuate, but St. Genevieve persuaded them to avert the scourge by fasting and prayer, assuring them of the protection of Heaven. The event verified the prediction, for the barbarian suddenly changed the course of his march. The life of St. Genevieve was one of great austerity, constant prayer, and works of charity. She died in the year 512. Her feast day is January 3rd. She dressed in a long flowing gown with a mantle covering her shoulders, similar to the type of garments the Blessed Mother wore. One of the symbols of this saint is a loaf of bread because she was so generous to those in need.

Non-gluten hosts
A few members of the parish have inquired in regard to having nongluten 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.

Make a Gift through an IRA Charitable Rollover Normally, a distribution from your IRA is taxed as ordinary income. However, tax legislation just enacted extends the opportunity for the remainder of 2010 and throughout 2011 for individuals 70½ or older to make a direct distribution from your IRA to a qualified charity, such as (PARISH NAME), the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, the Archdiocese of Newark, or another archdiocesan institution. Such qualified direct distributions to charity from your IRA are not subject to income tax. The new law also provides that you may consider such distributions made in January 2011 as made in 2010. For more information about how you and the Church can benefit from an IRA charitable rollover, contact the parish office or the Archdiocese of Newark’s Planned Giving Office at (973) 497-4048 by e-mail at PGINFO@rcan.org.
