Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
In my recent homilies, you have heard me preach about the upcoming “Year of Faith” and “the New
Evangelization.” Last week in my Pastor’s Notes, I wrote about the “Year of Faith;” this week I would like to
write about “the New Evangelization.”
The New Evangelization calls each of us to deepen our faith, believe in the Gospel message and go forth to
proclaim the Gospel. The focus of the New Evangelization calls all Catholics to be evangelized and then go
forth to evangelize. In a special way, the New Evangelization is focused on 're-proposing' the Gospel to those
who have experienced a crisis of faith. Pope Benedict XVI called for the re-proposing of the Gospel "to those
regions awaiting the first evangelization and to those regions where the roots of Christianity are deep but
who have experienced a serious crisis of faith due to secularization." The New Evangelization invites each
Catholic to renew their relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.
The New Evangelization offers hope. Jesus grants all people rest and comfort from the world's burdens, (Mt.
11:28) by offering us the hope of salvation and eternal life. Through the “re-proposing” of the Gospel, the
Church seeks to comfort all those who are burdened. The New Evangelization offers the gifts of faith, hope,
love and new life in Christ.
The Church in the United States can be likened to the mustard seed. The Church has been present in the
Americas since the first missionaries arrived in the 15th Century. Over the past five centuries, the Church's
foundation has sprung up and taken root in the U.S., spreading her branches and offering shade to the weary.
This can be seen simply by looking at the work of Catholic Charities on behalf of the poor, the network of
Catholic schools offering education to millions, and the commitment of U.S. Catholics to the Church's social
justice teachings. However, there is still work to do.
The 2008 Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) study “Sacraments Today: Belief and Practice
Among U.S. Catholics,” provides a glimpse into the beliefs, practices and attitudes of U.S. Catholics. According
to the study, only 23% of U.S. Catholics regularly attend Mass once a week, while 77% self-identify as proud
to be Catholic. These statistics also reflect the numbers in the Diocese of Trenton and our very own parish.
These statistics point to the need for the New Evangelization.

The seed of the Church is present, but the message of Jesus Christ needs to be re-sown and watered for those
who have already heard Christ's call, but who have not been fully evangelized or catechized. Truly, the seed
of Christ's message has taken root and yielded much fruit in past seasons. In the spirit of the New
Evangelization, I again invite all parishioners to commit to “just one hour a week” in Eucharistic Adoration.
Your weekly “holy hour” will yield even greater harvests for Christ in the future so that all people can dwell
in the shade.

Have a Blessed Week!                       In Jesus and Mary,
                                             Father Jeff Kegley

                                  Union of Prayer




Hezekiah was a God-fearing king who brought about reformation among the Israelites. His son,
Manasseh, however, was an evil ruler who, although he watched his father walk with God and live
according to God’s Word, chose to ignore God.

Manasseh worshiped false gods, even to the point of sacrificing his sons by fire in order to praise
Moloch. He practiced much evil – including witchcraft and sorcery – and led Israel astray, thereby
provoking God’s anger. The king, along with the people, paid a high price for their rebellion.

Why do I relate this story? Because I believe, it illustrates the Lord’s intolerance of a nation’s
disregard toward Him. Consider our country. We, too, have become a nation that pushes God aside
– one that has turned away from the only true God and embraces idols. Oh, we don’t worship
statues of stone, but we worship money, sports ability, fame, reputation, to name a few.

Our wonderful country, the United States of America, was founded on biblical principals with the
intent to guarantee freedom of worship. But over time, we have removed the Lord from many
aspects of our public life. Prayer in schools, for instance, was deemed unconstitutional. A mother
can murder the baby in her womb and we call it “Freedom of Choice!” What was once a “Nation
under God” has turned into a country that tolerates a growing number of sins and yet belittles
absolute truth.

When a nation turns its back on the Lord, His judgment is inevitable unless the people repent and
return to His loving and merciful arms.




            Intention for the month of August:

                   Pray that the Lord will draw our country back to Himself and that the truth of
                   the gospel will once more spread throughout our land..

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

            “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish;
                       but what good are these for so many?”
                                                                                                 -John 6:9




The miracle of the Loaves and Fishes is the only one of Our Lord’s miracles, which
is recorded six times in the Gospel. It carries two important messages.
       First, no matter how little we have, we always have enough to share.
 Second, Christ can take our humble gifts and do great things with them if we are
                               just willing to let Him.

                            From our Twinning Ministry ~




        As you saw last week, The Village of Chucilla completed construction of its church. We also
        had an opportunity to visit Santa Maria, another Community that had just started building
              their own church even though it is located a very short distance from Chucilla.
        The priority to build a church is very much part of their culture and not something that is
               easy for us to understand when they appear to have so many other needs.
          We spent some time discussing their needs and then our brothers and sisters provided
             some cake and soda to celebrate our visit. –David Legg, for the Twinning Team

                        How to Protect Kids from Whooping Cough


       Whooping cough was once a terrible menace to U. S. children, with hundreds of thousands
of cases reported annually. Then a vaccine drove cases down, and the illness became thought of
as rare and even antiquated. But it never totally disappeared, and now there’s been a spike in
cases.

      With nearly 18,000 cases so far this year, health officials say this is shaping up to be the
worst national epidemic in more than 50 years for the highly contagious disease.

      Worrisome numbers have been reported in more than a dozen years. Cases in New York
State have tripled since last year.

                                   What’s a parent to do? Some advice ~

FIRST STEP: Make sure your child is up-to-date on vaccinations against whooping cough, or
pertussis. There are 5 doses, with the first shot at 2 months, and the last between 4 and 6 years.
A booster shot is recommended around 11 or 12. It’s part of routine childhood shots that also
protect against diphtheria and tetanus.

PROTECT YOURSELF: Adults who are around kids should get a whooping cough booster shot
so that they don’t spread it to young children, who are the most vulnerable to whooping cough.
Nine young children have died so far this year. The booster for teens and adults, approved in
2005, was combined with the tetanus booster that adults are supposed to get every 10 years or so.

VACCINE NOT PERFECT: No vaccine is 100% effective, and its ability to fend off infections
wanes as years pass. But even diminished vaccine protection is better than nothing, and usually
people who are vaccinated have milder cases. In this current epidemic, experts are investigating
whether the childhood shots and the booster offer less lasting protection than previously
thought.

WATCH FOR SYMPTOMS:             The illness typically starts with cold-like symptoms that can
include a runny nose, congestion, low-grade fever and a mild cough. Infants may have a pause in
breathing, called apnea. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises parents to see a
doctor if they or their children develop prolonged or severe coughing fits, vomiting and
exhaustion.

       The name comes from the sound children make as they gasp for breath. The disease is
spread through coughing or sneezing. Whooping cough is treated with antibiotics. The earlier
the better!

                                                                                                           Eileen Theall, R. N.

                                          The Eucharist and Adoration. . . . .Create silence within yourself, for God is the
                                          friend of silence. He is always waiting for us in silence – to speak to us and to
                                          listen to us. “In the silence of our hearts, God speaks of His love; with our
                                          silence, we allow Jesus to love us.” (Mother Teresa of Calcutta)

                                                         

       Everyone loves the beauty and innocence of a baby. As an expression of that love, we will begin an adoption
program on August 11/12, 2012. You will have the opportunity to “spiritually” adopt a child who is newly conceived
that month.

       Not all newly conceived babies are allowed to be born. In fact, more than 4,000 babies lose their lives to
abortion each day. It is these babies that you are being asked to “adopt”.

         You may “adopt” a child individually or as a family by signing up during the weekend of August 11/12. You
will be asked to name the child for whom you will be praying, thereby giving the baby the humanity he or she deserves.

       You will be asked to pray a 10-second prayer each day for your unborn child and for all unborn children – for
the power of prayer is great!

       A monthly report describing your baby’s development from conception to birth will be printed in the bulletin.

       There are millions of unborn babies desperately in need of your prayers. Won’t you please “spiritually” adopt
one and share the love for life that God has given you?

This program has been approved for us in the Diocese by the Respect Life Ministries of the Diocese of Trenton.

                                                 God bless all of you,
                                                                            Mother of God Respect Life Committee
