21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today we see a Scriptural theme of wisdom interwoven
with an invitation to eat and drink. The choicest invitation from the ultimate Host! Over the centuries this
invitation of Christ is conveyed through His Church.
The early community slowly came to realize this in the
wake of Pentecost. The departure of Jesus visible and
the coming of the Spirit invisible gave them the impetus
to rely on each other for support in the battle against
temptation and sin.
We faithful followers know all this from the Bible and
our catechetical education. We respond as best we can
come Sunday. Hopefully we come to Mass motivated by
love and not merely by law. How could we ever turn
the Lord down?
It is true that many people who would quickly call
themselves “Catholic” to a survey taker casually ignore
Christ’s invitation. We can never judge them, but they
are not the norm. Nor can we erase the words of Christ
that people who do not feed on His Body and Blood “do
not have life.” They stand firm and immutable. Our
role is to pray that their hearts and minds soften
enough to hear the voice of Wisdom.

Friday, Sept 4, there will be Eucharistic Adoration in
the chapel after the 9:00am mass from 9:30am to
Think of it! Our Lord Jesus Christ could calm the
winds and the waves with a rebuke (Mk 5:3541). He could turn a meal for one into one for
5000 (Mt 14:13-23). He could even heal people of their physical afflictions with just a
touch (such as in Lk:12-14). This very same
God of such power and majesty makes Himself
present and readily available in countless altars and
tabernacles in churches around the world to be with
each one of us, indeed to be with you!
Please come to adore, praise, thank God for his love
and mercy. Bring your petitions to Him and ask for His
graces to do His will. Call Barbara McGeachen at 609448-8399 to sign up for Adoration.
First Reading: Joshua 24:1-2a, 15-7
All of Israel is united under Joshua just as they were
when fighting their various battles. The covenant at Shechem is a renewal of the earlier one of the people with
Second Reading: Ephesians 5:21-32, or 5:2a, 25-32
The accepted code of the household in those days is enhanced by Christian principles. Christ’s lordship over the
Church is one of love like that of a husband for his wife.
Gospel: John 6:60-69
Jesus’ “saying” about the Eucharist proves too much for
some of His disciples, and so He loses some of them at this
point. But Peter, speaking for the Twelve, makes a beautiful confession of faith to offset the loss.

Social Justice Corner - August 23, 2015
Live in love, as Christ loved us. Ephesians 5
Do we really believe that God loves us? Would it be easier
for us to live in love if we really felt loved unconditionally?
“The real reason we can live so comfortably as the gap between the rich and the poor widens is because we don't
know how much we are loved by God, not because we are
bad and without conscience. We feel unloved and so we
feel we have to take life for ourselves.
“Small wonder we settle for second-best or for almost anything else that promises to fill an aching void inside us.
Jesus, no doubt, is looking at us and saying:' Forgive them
Father for they know not what they do!' Too few of us, at
any personal level, have ever heard God say to us: 'I love
you!' Too few of us have ever felt what Jesus must have felt
when, at his baptism, he heard his Father say: 'You are my
beloved child, in you I take delight.'
“There is a place inside us, a place we are rarely aware of,
where each and every one of us is being touched and held
unconditionally in love by God.” excerpted from
“Daybreaks” by Father Ron Rolheiser

In order to secure the future of the parish and the Diocese,
Bishop O’Donnell has announced a diocesan-wide
fundraising campaign to raise a minimum of $75
million, of which 30% will be returned to the parishes to address local needs.
The Diocesan share will be used to create endowed
funds to enhance and grow our current ministries
and to ensure the long-term sustainability of our
Church. Our priests spend their lives in service to us. That
is why it is a priority to provide for them when they retire.
In the next 10 years alone, 44% of our current priests will
be eligible for retirement. This will require an additional
$800,000 each year to care for these dedicated men.
Our parish goal is $695,000 — to date we have $398,225
in pledges (57% of our goal) from 41 families. Please visit
our website to see how you can help:
Spiritual Adoption—Week 32
I’m not moving as much now. I’m running short on room;
but I still have plenty of growing to do!! All five senses are
working at 32 weeks (taste, hearing, touch, sight, and
smell), and I’m testing these out as much as possible. My
toenails are completely formed, but I’m not quite ready
for a pedicure. A brain scan will show I have
periods of dream sleep (REM) starting around
the eighth month. I am 16.7 inches long and I
weigh 3.75 lbs. “Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love
you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the
unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted
who is in danger of abortion.”
Prayer of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Here’s to Your Health with Sheila Conway

exercise or diet regimen.)
Crucial Water Safety Tips Lifeguards Wish Parents Knew
Bounce once, bounce forward—There’s a right and
wrong way to bounce on a diving board. Bounce once,
and jump straight ahead—not to the side. Bouncing
twice can cause you to slip or land in shallow water.
Floaties don’t always keep a child afloat—A lifeguard’s
rule of thumb: Don’t float where you can’t swim. Not
only can floaties slip off, they can give children a false
sense of confidence in their swimming
Parents, please, put the phone away— The
phone is the biggest distraction. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported
that injuries involving swimming pools
climbed 36 percent in children under 5
years old between 2007 and 2010, a time period in
which adult smartphone use also skyrocketed. Though
the association does not prove that phones were solely
responsible, keep the phone down and stay alert to help
keep your child safe.
Treat swimming like a soccer tournament—Swimming
can be as exhausting as any other sport. Have your children take breaks every two hours to rest, reapply sunscreen, and have a snack. (Contrary to common belief,
lifeguards say it’s perfectly safe to swim after eating).
Observe the water at the beach—Murky water is often a
sign that there’s a rip current beneath the surface. A rip
current often occurs because there’s a break in the sand
bar. A rip current, which can occur at any time (even in
knee-deep water), can carry even strong swimmers away
from the shore in oceans or large lakes.
Remember to always swim near an attended lifeguard
September 1 is the first meeting of Anthonians after the
summer break. Fr. Boyet Concepcion will be speaking
about spirituality in seniors. The meeting is 1pm in the
church community room —everyone is welcome.
The oldest Diocesan PTA in the United States
will be 90 years old this fall. The Trenton Diocesan PTA will celebrate this momentous occasion
with Mass on Saturday, September 19, with the
Most Rev. David M. O'Connell, C.M., Bishop of Trenton,
as celebrant. Mass will be at the Cathedral of Saint Mary
of the Assumption located at 151 N. Warren Street Trenton, NJ at 9:30 am. The business meeting will take place
at the War Memorial Building in Trenton following
Mass. Past Diocesan Presidents, Pastors, Regents, Unit
Presidents, and members are cordially invited to attend
along with the current PTA membership. Renew friendships, recall wonderful memories and take part and celebrate the 90th Diocesan Conference!

Building Fund/Capital Campaign Fund
On August 19th the church made its final payment of
$8,446.86 on the long term $1,000,000.00 mortgage loan
used to finance the vast improvements made to the facilities
some ten years ago. We are sure every one of our parishioners appreciates what a fine facility we have here at St.
Anthony’s. We are grateful for the generosity that our parishioners have shown over this period that enabled us to
reach this milestone event.
The payoff of this loan does not end the need to fund necessary improvements to the buildings and property. As we
have said in the past, the parking area needs to be torn up
and repaved, the lighting in the parking lot needs to be improved, and certain upgrades need to be done within the
church on the audio-visual system, as well as modifications
to the front of the altar such as installing railing for safety
reasons. In addition, we need to address the growing needs
of the less fortunate in our community who must line up
for help at the Green House. These projects, along with others, require a significant investment of funds so we are asking for your continued support monthly using the pink envelopes. These were formerly used to collect the Capital
Campaign funds needed for our loan payments. Now these
envelopes will be used to collect funds specifically for
“Building and Land Improvements”. We have a large facility; to keep it up to date requires a significant sum of
money. We thank you for your past and future generosity.
Thank you for your ongoing support in helping St. Anthony
of Padua maintain and improve our fine facilities. The Mass
Offering Total for August 16: $14,240. Your donations are
important; they help Saint Anthony of Padua continue the
good work in the parish and the community. Please remember the parish in your wills and in your estate planning.

Catholic Annual Appeal
The Annual Catholic Appeal—in Action!
We well into the Catholic Annual Appeal for 2015. We are
pleased to announce that our pledges amount to approximately 89% of our $63,000.00 goal and the payments made
to date exceed 90% of the pledges. If you haven’t made a
pledge yet please consider doing so. These funds are used
by the Diocese in order to fund the important ministries,
programs, and services that are instrumental to the day by
day operation of the Diocese. Additionally, once we have
reached our goal of paid pledges St. Anthony receives a
rebate from the Diocese of approximately $10,000.00.
Above all remember that we can be proud of our Catholic
faith, including all the work within the parish communities,
and together our gifts can help further the good work of
our faith. Thank you for all your support.
The Joy of Stewardship
In today’s first reading, Joshua challenges the people
to decide whom they will serve. Recalling God’s faithfulness to them and to their ancestors, the people declare, “We also will serve the Lord, for He is our
God.” May we, too, be mindful of God’s gifts to us and
renew our commitment to serve Him with grateful

Fiscal Year 7/1/2014 thru 6/30/2015
We are pleased to report that St. Anthony of Padua ended its
fiscal year on June 30, 2015 in very good financial condition. Revenues met their projections and expenditures were
somewhat less than projected resulting in the parish virtually breaking even with total revenue exceeding our total
expenditures by about $15,000.00. Given the current economic conditions, along with the present investment climate, our predictions for the year 2015 thru 2016 are not
quite as positive. As it stands our budget for the new year
indicates a slight deficit possible by the end of June
2016. We appreciate your support during the past year,
and ask you for your continued giving in this year to
come. With your help St. Anthony of Padua will continue
its long history of providing spiritual guidance to its parishioners for years to come.
If any parishioner is interested in seeing the financial statement for the year ending 6/30/2015 please go to the
church’s website where it is posted.

XXI DOMINGO ORDINARIO (Juan 6:55, 60-69)
Lo que hoy escuchamos son las reacciones ante las difíciles palabras de Jesús; primero la del grupo de seguidores y luego la del
grupo de los doce.
El grupo de discípulos reaccionan como los judíos; murmuran y
rechazan la enseñanza sobre la carne de Jesús y la necesidad de
consumirlo para obtener la vida eterna. El escandalo al que pueden estar refiriendo las palabras de Jesús es probablemente el modo como esta ascensión va a tener lugar; su muerte violenta en
cruz. Si las puras palabras le parecen insoportables, ¿Cómo van a
aceptar la cruda realidad? Un mesías crucificado es la piedra de
escándalo para la fe discipular. La revelación de un pan que vivifica y que consiste en la carne del Mesías violentado no es para
corazones aniñados ni para voluntades mediocres. La cruz requiere de personas dispuestas a jugarse la vida por Dios, por su proyecto de dar vida por Dios, por su proyecto de dar vida. Hoy nadie
predica la cruz de Cristo, pues en el fondo no aceptamos que Dios
opera en la humillación y deshonra de su Mesías. El seguir a Jesús
no consiste solo en aceptar la doctrina del Pan de Vida, sino es ser
capaces de contemplar al mismo crucificado “donde estaba antes”.
Es decir vivir mirándolo.
Cuando la desbandada es general, el grupo de doce se consolidad
en la confesión de Pedro, provocada por el reto directo de Jesús.
Las palabras de Simón van a tono con el discurso del Pan de Vida
pronunciado por Jesús. Con los Doce, Pedro busca “palabras de
vida eterna”.
Pedro confiesa que Jesús es el Santo de Dios pues pronuncia palabras de vida verdadera. En las palabras de Jesús, Pedro y los demás
han podido reconocer que Jesús es alguien movido por el Espíritu
de Dios que vivifica a los que lo reciben. Por eso, las palabras son
santas. Por lo mismo, hay que entender lo que pronuncia Jesús
santifica, llena de vida, pues la santidad de Dios y la vida eterna
son equivalentes, son vasos comunicantes. El efecto de la santificación es la vitalidad. Si algo resta vitalidad no puede santificar, no
viene de Dios. La santidad, por el contrario, genera vida, plenitud,
comunión y solidaridad con los que comparten el Espíritu de Dios.
Las de Jesús no son palabras que haya de venerar y mantener como en una urna o en un cofre, sin que sufran alteración, para que
no se perviertan. Su revelación es Pan de vida, incorruptible porque lo mismo Espíritu de Dios anima y la hace llegar a quienes la
coman y la beban. Es carne y sangre que da vida de Dos al mundo.

para mí pero todavía tengo que crecer más. Mi cinco sentidos,
gusto, oído, vista, y olfato, funcionas a mis 32 semanas y los estoy
usando cada vez que tengo la oportunidad. Las uñas de mis pies
están formadas pero todavía no están listas para un pedicuro. Si se
tomara una tomografía de mi cerebro, mostraría que experimento
períodos en que duermo y sueño, esto lo he estado experimentando desde el 8vo mes. Mido ya 16.7” y peso aproximadamente 3.75
Lbs. development.: Jesús, María y José
los amo y les ruego que protejan la vida del bebe que he adoptado
espiritualmente y por todos los bebes que están en peligro de ser
abortados. Arzobispo Fulton J. Sheen
