Discernment Meeting

Discernment Meeting

   This Sunday, The Diocese of Trenton is inviting men throughout the diocese who fell they may be being called to the Vocation of Priesthood to gather together for prayer, fellowship and a meal. Please pray for them this weekend that those who are being called are opened to the Spirit and follow the call and join together with their fellow brothers in Christ. If you are part of the Diocese of Trenton and want to attend please contact the vocations office at 609-406-7449 or email at The meeting will be held Saint Catherine Parish in Spring Lake from 4pm - 6pm. 
    Encourage the men around you who you think are being called to the priesthood. Just open up the dialogue. Sometimes it takes someone else to see whats inside us and without them sharing that we may never have thought about it ourself. Thank you for all your prayers.

Until tomorrow, God Bless, and may men answer and hear the call. 

Friday of the Twenty-fifth Week in Ordinary Time
Lectionary: 453
Reading 1
ECCL 3:1-11
There is an appointed time for everything,
and a time for every thing under the heavens.
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant.
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to tear down, and a time to build.
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them;
a time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces.
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away.
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to be silent, and a time to speak.
A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.

What advantage has the worker from his toil?
I have considered the task that God has appointed
for the sons of men to be busied about.
He has made everything appropriate to its time,
and has put the timeless into their hearts,
without man’s ever discovering,
from beginning to end, the work which God has done.
Responsorial Psalm
PS 144:1B AND 2ABC, 3-4

R. (1) Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
Blessed be the LORD, my rock,
my mercy and my fortress,
my stronghold, my deliverer,
My shield, in whom I trust.
R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
LORD, what is man, that you notice him;
the son of man, that you take thought of him?
Man is like a breath;
his days, like a passing shadow.
R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
LK 9:18-22

Once when Jesus was praying in solitude,
and the disciples were with him,
he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?”
They said in reply, “John the Baptist; others, Elijah;
still others, ‘One of the ancient prophets has arisen.’”
Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Peter said in reply, “The Christ of God.”
He rebuked them and directed them not to tell this to anyone.

He said, “The Son of Man must suffer greatly
and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes,
and be killed and on the third day be raised.”
