FROM THE DESK OF DEACON MIKE - As we wait for the coming of Jesus, here is a “test” for you about the way we look at the Advent (Coming or Arrival) Season

· Have I been changed for the better from this time last year? Why or Why Not? 

· Are there people that are “invisible” to me because they never happen to cross the “radar screen” of my life – particularly the homeless, the elderly, the chronically ill or those who will have Christmas alone.

· Do I perhaps get caught up in the “competition” of gift giving? `

· Do I believe that perhaps a great gift I could give someone is a carefully written card expressing what he or she means to me or running an errand or checking in with family, friends and neighbors who live alone?


Youth Group: What a gift the leaders of the Youth Group are to our parish. Taking their time, talent, and quite often treasures to help teach the children to be more and more the kids that God wants them to be. When you see them thank them and always pray for them. 


Parish Finances: Last year our income was up $271.00 more than the year before. While collections were down a bit, our fundraising made up for it. Expenses were up even with trying to look for less expensive ways of doing things. While we do not like talking about money, please remember every registered family should have and use envelopes on a regular basis. This gives us a chance to pay our bills on time and purchase needed supplies for our church and parish. We did run a small deficit last year. Please pray and give what you can. More coming next week!!!!


Sunday Second Collection - After the First of the year we will only be passing the basket one time per Mass. If you are using an envelope for the Second Collection please put them into the one collection basket. The envelopes will then be separated by our counters.

A VOCATION VIEW

Christ will come again! This we have been promised. The same Christ has called us all to different vocations, and some of these include Holy Orders and Religious Life. What greater way is there to honor our Lord and King than by faithfully answering his call. If you think God is calling you, call Fr. Andrew Lauricella at 716-847-5535

PLEASE N0TE – The time for weekday Masses has been changed from 7:30am to 8:30am until further notice.


A FEW WORDS FROM DEACON DAVE

I hope you have some idea of how much Lynn and I enjoyed our time at St. Anthony Parish. You welcomed us warmly and we enjoyed working alongside the parish family. We found a warm, accepting, generous spirit here. We were especially moved by the love and support offered to us when tragedy struck our family. We will always be grateful for that great care. Our family responsibilities remain our priority. 

Our plan had always been to retire from this special parish. Despite retiring last year, I have accepted the position of Temporary Parish Administrator for Queen of Angels formerly St. Michael’s Parish. The decision was not easy but the parish needs this support. The former pastor, Fr. John will remain as Sacramental Minister, which is a huge factor in my being able to serve there. As Parish Administrator I, along with dedicated parishioners, will take care of the business end of the parish. This will be a flexible, part time position. It will not be as time intensive as my role at St. Anthony Parish.

We will always pray for the success of St. Anthony Parish and carry fond memories along our new path. Please also pray for us that we may continue to serve the family of God wherever we find them. We love you!

Blessings to all, 

Dave and Lynn

Pope Francis: Jesus is the center of creation; and so the attitude demanded of us as true believers is that of recognizing and accepting in our lives the centrality of Jesus Christ, in our thoughts, in our words and in our works. And so our thoughts will be Christian thoughts, thoughts of Christ. Our works will be Christian works, works of Christ; and our words will be Christian words, words of Christ. But when this center is lost, when it is replaced by something else, only harm can result for everything around us and for ourselves.

FROM THE DESK OF DEACON MIKE - Violence: Another school shooting in the USA and a church being torched in the country of Chile by terrorists. More senseless violence and hatred. More children dead. Yet we sit by quietly as a nation and let it happen. A Christian Nation would try to stop this division and killing of our children, yet we allow this to go on. We need to pray for leaders in this country that are not afraid to step up to the plate and push sensible laws to try to bring the country back to the moral and safe place it should be for our children. One of the messages from Our Lady of Fatima was to pray the Rosary for peace in the world. 


Thanksgiving - We should try to give thanks to God each and every day we wake up in the morning. This time of year we remember and be thankful all the things that have happened in our lives and all the people in our lives that help shape us into the people God wants us to be. 


Feast Day - Our Lady of Divine Providence. The title of "Mary, Mother of Divine Providence" is often traced to her intervention at the wedding in Cana. Christ's first public miracle was occasioned in part by the intercession of his mother. She helped through her foresight and concern to avoid an embarrassing situation for the newlywed couple. à

Devotion to Our Lady of Divine Providence originated in Italy, and spread to France and Spain. The devotion was brought to Puerto Rico in the early 1850s by the Servite Fathers. According to tradition, Philip Benizi (1233 – 1285) prayed to Mary for help in providing food for his friars, and subsequently found several baskets of provisions left at the door of the convent. Our Lady of Providence was declared the patroness of Puerto Rico by Pope Paul VI on November 19, 1969.

DESDE EL ESCRITORIO DE DIACONO MIKE  -  Violencia: Otro tiroteo en una escuela en los Estados Unidos y una iglesia incendiada en el país de Chile por terroristas. Más violencia y odio sin sentido. Más niños muertos. Sin embargo, nos sentamos en silencio como nación y dejamos que suceda. Una nación cristiana trataría de detener esta división y el asesinato de nuestros hijos, pero permitimos que esto continúe. Necesitamos orar por los líderes en este país que no temen dar un paso al frente y presionar leyes sensatas para tratar de devolver al país al lugar moral y seguro que debería ser para nuestros hijos. Uno de los mensajes de Nuestra Señora de Fátima fue rezar el Rosario por la paz en el mundo.
Acción de Gracias - Debemos tratar de dar gracias a Dios cada día que nos despertemos por la mañana. En esta época del año recordamos y agradecemos todas las cosas que han sucedido en nuestras vidas y a todas las personas en nuestras vidas que nos ayudan a formarnos en las personas que Dios quiere que seamos.
Fiesta de Nuestra Señora de la Divina Providencia - El título de "María, Madre de la Divina Providencia" a menudo se remonta a su intervención en la boda en Cana. El primer milagro público de Cristo fue ocasionado en parte por la intercesión de su madre. Ella ayudó a través de su previsión y preocupación para evitar una situación embarazosa para la pareja de recién casados.  
La devoción a Nuestra Señora de la Divina Providencia se originó en Italia y se extendió a Francia y España. La devoción fue traída a Puerto Rico a principios de la década de 1850 por los Padres Servitas. Según la tradición, Philip Benizi (1233 - 1285) rezó a María por ayuda para proporcionar alimentos a sus frailes, y posteriormente encontró varias cestas de provisiones que quedaron en la puerta del convento. Nuestra Señora de la Providencia fue declarada patrona de Puerto Rico por el Papa Pablo VI el 19 de noviembre de 1969.
