Dear Parishioners,
       Thank you so much for your prayer support of the KAIROS Retreat for high school seniors that was held
this week. The prayer support given by all is of profound good - benefitting those who are experiencing God’s
intervention in their lives. Too often, we fail to be aware of this prayer-power that is available to us.

                         I have been reminding you of the Thanksgiving Prayer times this week; on Tuesday evening,
                         the neighborhood congregations will gather at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Tindall
                         Road to give thanks to God in prayer. On Thanksgiving Day we will gather for Mass
                         beginning at 9:00 a.m. in Mary, Mother of God Church. We invite all to join us for these
                         times of prayer giving thanks to God for His presence to us in all of the circumstances of our
        I always marvel at the level of activity on campus during the Thanksgiving break. Stop around and visit
one of the activities - both indoor and outdoor that will be happening.

        Next weekend via our movie screens, Bishop O’Connell will address us regarding the
updated translation of the Mass. It will be good for us to hear our leader share with us his
insights into the translation and help us grow in our spiritual readiness for the new translation.

        We will begin Advent next weekend and hence our new translation. It is a good time for us to increase the
intensity of our engagement at Mass. We should arrive on time and not leave until it is over. These are basic
etiquette. Recently we have had several things happening in the Narthex on the weekend and I have noticed that
when we begin Mass - we have many who are still coming in and the Liturgy of the Word is well underway before
some arrive. Please look at this and try to plan to arrive a few minutes earlier. Also, I understand why some
may have to occasionally leave early but --- so many, so often --- I don’t understand and I believe that we should
all evaluate why and if we see ourselves as part of those that leave early on a regular basis --- that we try harder to
thank Jesus for coming to us in Holy Communion and conclude the Mass with the other members who have

        I mentioned that we were beginning to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with our younger
members. We start this week. Talk about forgiveness in your household! A question for all of us is – ‘how am I
generating a climate of forgiveness in my home and wherever I spend most of my time during the day?’ It is so
helpful in building our relationships and challenging each of us to a greater measure of good in our lives. Pick a
virtue each week and try to accent its development in your household, e.g., this week pick the virtue of patience
and see how through accenting it … you can build a little more of it among you.

       Have a Blessed Thanksgiving everybody,

                                                                      Fr. Mike

The Catholic Church refers to the family as the “domestic church.”
              So, we are to gather in our homes to praise God and support one another.

Therefore, we are to have a place in our homes in which we can pray. Sacramentals remind us to pray.
Anything from a crucifix, the bible, a prayer book, candles, statues and rosary beads are sacramentals.

                      Dental Erosion – Seven Tips for Your Teeth

You probably take steps to prevent tooth decay – that is, dental caries, better known as cavities – by brushing and
flossing your teeth, especially after eating “cariogenic” foods, such as sweets. But even if you do that, you are still
at risk for dental erosion. This growing and under-appreciated problem now affects as many as one in five

Dental erosion is the acidic dissolution of teeth – starting with the softening of the enamel and underlying dentin
and subsequent structural tooth loss. It’s caused by acids in foods and beverages as well as by regurgitated
stomach acid resulting from gastric reflux disease. Over brushing, abrasive toothpaste, tooth grinding and other
excessive mechanical wear and tear can dramatically worsen the damage caused by erosion.

                                      If Your Teeth Could Talk

If you know you have erosion, or want to prevent it, take these steps:

       Limit acidic beverages, such as soda, especially cola and citrus flavors, energy drinks (such as Red Bull),
       sports drinks, such as Gatorade, citrus juices and wine.

       Limit acidic foods such as grapefruit, sour candies, raisins and vinegary items.

       Rinse with water after consuming acidic foods or beverages.

       Eat dairy products. Their calcium helps reduce the damaging effects of acids and their casein enhances

       Chew sugarless gum to increase saliva flow.

       Use less abrasive toothpaste. Whitening pastes are most abrasive.

       Use a soft toothpaste, but not too forcefully or for more than a couple of minutes. It’s easy to overdo it
       with an electric toothbrush, since it requires little effort.

                                                                                                    Eileen Theall, R.N.

                          CHRIST THE KING

        Nurturing generous disciples to serve
           as the hands and feet of Christ

“Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones,
                      you did not do for me.”

                   In today’s readings we see that Jesus is the Good
                   Shepherd who will care for us in our time of need.

                   However, our relationship with Jesus should not be all
                   take and no give.

                   We, in turn, are expected to care for one another just as
                   Jesus cares for us.

              “Love one another as I have loved you”
                                                                    John 13:34

        I want to thank everyone who signed up for the Viridian Energy Fundraiser!

Unfortunately we are nowhere near our goal of 500 families! The success of this fundraiser relies on
a great response from the parishioners. If you are not currently purchasing your electricity from a
3rd party supplier - then you are definitely not saving any money! By switching to Viridian Energy
as your energy supplier you would have saved 8% last year on the supply portion of your bill. This is
a very simple agreement with no contract and no cost to switch back to the utility rate if you choose.
I know it is important to everyone that they do save money! As the liaison for the Parish I will
update the parish every 3 months to let you all know what the savings were for that period and for
the year. So let’s help the Parish and help ourselves and signup at
    or call 866-663-2508 and give associate id 21484 to make sure the parish gets credit.

Next week, along with all of the rest of the English speaking world, we will
begin to utilize the new translation of the Roman Missal. Our sung Mass Responses
will not change all that much. You will find an insert inside the vinyl cover to the
Word and Song hymnal/missalette that will assist you with the spoken prayers
and sung responses during the Mass. We will be singing the Glendalough Mass Setting written by Fr.
Liam Lawton. It is published by GIA Publications. Their website is www.giamusic.com. On the website
you will find music samples, CD’s, octavos, sheet music and worship aids. You can even purchase your
own copy of the Glendalough Mass insert, to keep for your own use, for only $0.85 each. GIA
Publications is a major supplier of Sacred Music for Catholic Churches. Many of the beautiful pieces of
music that we performed in Carnegie Hall were published by GIA.

We have already learned the sung Memorial Acclamation and Amen. Last week we introduced the Lamb
of God. Next week we sing the new Holy, Holy, Holy. Hopefully this introduction of the Glendalough
Mass will continue to go smoothly. This Mass Setting has a melody that flows beautifully and isn’t difficult
to master. The Adult Choir learned it very easily and hopefully we have all become familiar with the
music, hearing it played each week before Mass for the last few months.

This Tuesday evening, Nov. 22nd, our Adult Choir will join with other area church choirs, to assist with the
music for our Annual Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service. It will take place at the Westminster
Presbyterian Church on Tindall Rd., across from Middletown H.S. North, beginning at 7:30pm. All are
invited to come together to offer our prayers of Thanksgiving. Choir members are asked to be there no
later than 7:00pm and to please bring their choir robes. November 22 nd is also the Feast Day of St.
Cecelia, the Patron Saint of Music.

We will celebrate Thanksgiving Mass at 9:00am on Thanksgiving morning. All Music Ministers are
welcome to assist at this Mass at Mary, Mother of God Church.

                     May you all have a Blessed, Happy and Peaceful Thanksgiving.

                    Two year old Needs Van for Medical Transport

A van is needed for little Bella. She is not two-years old as yet. She is the little girl we have
been praying for. Bella’s parents have to transport her from their home to various doctors and
back to Children’s Hospital in Philly. Bella together with her parents lives in Pennsylvania.

The parents of Baby Bella are trying to obtain a van (either new or used) to transport Baby Bella. When they have to take
Baby Bella to appointments, they are using an ambulance service. However, the cost of the ambulance is not covered by
insurance. Bella’s parents are looking for a donation of a van (used/new). We pray someone in the parish is able to help her.
If you can help, please call Deacon Bob or Mrs. Diane Scharen, 732-471-0278. Thank you.
