FEBRUARY 16 - SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

We may have learned the commandments by heart when we were in school, but as the psalmist says, what is more important is to keep them with all your heart. Taking them to heart means going beyond the letter of the law, for you have internalized their guidance. The heart is regarded as the seat of human emotion, especially—as the celebration of Valentine's Day this past Friday reminded us—love. As Jesus will say later in Matthew, all of the law and the prophets proceed from the two greatest commandments; love the Lord your God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. Saint Paul tells us that we have a huge advantage over anyone who lived before him, for we have the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The scripture quote he uses is from Isaiah, and though it may still be true that "eye has not seen, and ear has not heard," it has been revealed to us through the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:9, quoting Isaiah 64:3). The Spirit can guide us in following the way of the Lord even if we cannot see or hear it. Jesus addresses the fifth commandment by teaching his disciples how dangerous anger is. Left unresolved, it can cause resentment and lead to the death of a relationship. Jesus insists that we make the reconciliation of the relationship the highest priority, even higher than one's relationship with God. "Go first and be reconciled with your brother (or sister), and then come and offer your gift" (Matthew 5:24).

DIOCESE OF TRENTON ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL

"God gives where he finds empty hands."
St. Augustine

...So should we


This weekend February 15th & 16th, 2020 is Appeal Weekend for the Annual Catholic Appeal throughout the Diocese of Trenton. Each year the Bishop seeks the support of all of the members of the Diocese to further the work of our local church. We, as the local Church, have a very large job to do. It is a job that takes many hands and your help is greatly needed. Our Diocese is growing and our services, programs, and ministries need to respond to this growth. With God’s Grace and your continued support, we will reach and hopefully surpass our goal in 2020. We all need to support each other: the Bishop, the Pastors, and our fellow lay brothers and sisters who do the work of the Church and to help during this time of growth. Your generosity allows us to support our faith and spread the Good News of the Gospel. This weekend every parishioner will have the opportunity to participate in the 2020 Annual Catholic Appeal. During each Mass pledge cards will be distributed and the Bishop’s video will be shown. Our Diocese is following Jesus’ command “Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

My Dear Parishioners
"Today a light will shine upon us, for the Lord is born for us; and He will be called Wondrous God, Prince of Peace, Father of future ages: and His reign will be without end.” As we prepare to mark that great day of the birth of our Lord, may the Child Jesus bless you with strength and perseverance as we celebrate the birth of Love itself from which everything has its beginning.

May the blessing of this holy season and the New Year 2020, be yours in abundance. May your hearts be filled with the radiant splendor of that true light which came to earth on that sacred night on which our Savior was born. A peace filled and Merry Christmas to my Dear Parishioners and to all people of good will.

With prayers and blessing,
Rev. Can. Dr Jacek W. Łabiński
