THE ARCHDIOCESE ADDRESSES
VICTIM’S CONCERNS
The Archdiocese takes very seriously
the needs of victims who approach the Church
seeking healing from abuse.
In addition to offering counseling and other
support services, in appropriate cases,
the Archdiocese provides reasonable
compensation to those victims seeking a
financial settlement of their civil claim,
even after the statute of limitations has lapsed.
Settlements are not confidential unless requested
by the victim, and may include funding
for continued psychological counseling.
The Archdiocese’s general liability
insurance coverage is the sole source of funds
used to pay abuse settlements.
Although the Archdiocese, parishes and schools
pay premiums to purchase insurance,
no parish or school assets, Archdiocesan assets or
Annual Appeal or other fundraising collections
are used to pay civil claims
related to abuse cases.
HOW TO REPORT ABUSE
The Archdiocese takes very seriously any and all
allegations of sexual misconduct by members of the clergy,
Religious and lay staff of the Archdiocese. We encourage
anyone with knowledge of an act of sexual misconduct to
inform us immediately so that we may take appropriate
action to protect others and provide support to victims of
sexual abuse. Individuals who wish to report an allegation of
sexual misconduct may do so by calling the Archdiocesan
Office of Child and Youth Protection at (201) 407-3256
A NOTICE ON BAPTISMS AT THE
CATHEDRAL BASILICA
Baptisms usually take place in the
Cathedral sanctuary or Baptistery.
However, if there is a Cathedral event
scheduled in the main sanctuary,
Baptisms may take place in the Cathedral crypt.

THE WEDDING FEAST
At age 16, life was about rock ‘n roll. If my own band was not
performing on Saturday night, I was out in the audience,
watching another band. It would have never occurred to me to
spend my Saturday nights at a Catholic conference or retreat. True, no matter how late I was out, I’d never miss Sunday
Mass. But that’s not because it was the source and summit of
my life. It was because I didn’t want to go to hell. Why is
this? Because I craved fun, joy, adventure and fulfillment. And
Church was the last place I expected to find any of these
things. Heaven was described as “eternal rest.” Nothing could
have sounded more boring. But in the gospel of Matthew, the
kingdom of God is ... painted in the colors of a wedding feast -a boisterous, energizing celebration with delectable food, choice
wine, dancing, laughter, and fellowship. But not just any
wedding feast. This party will be fit for a king since the bridegroom is a prince. But when the King’ representatives issue
personal invitations to this party of the century, there are few
takers. Perhaps part of it is the fault of the messengers. Maybe
their blank faces and monotone voices confirmed the worst
suspicions of the invited guests: that anything put on by the King
will be a crashing bore. But
where did this suspicion come
from in the first place? Isaiah
speaks of a veil that covers all
peoples, a web that is woven over
all nations (Is 25:6-10). It is a
web of deceit that has been
woven not by a spider, but by the
serpent that first deceived Eve. It
is an immense propaganda
campaign that is subtly woven
into the message of movies, TV
shows, and print advertising. It
shows up in teachers' lesson
plans and athletes' locker room
conversations. The message is
simple: “do what God says and you’ll have no life. His reign is
at worst about oppression, at best endless boredom. Either
reject him or, if you really have to believe in him, just don’t
waste too much time and energy on religion. Give the obligatory
nod to God and go out and get a life.” That’s why the king in
the parable had a hard time filling his banquet hall. Be
honest. Do you see the pursuit of the Kingdom as a joyful romp
or as a tiresome chore? Do you do the bare minimum or do
you grab for all the spiritual gusto you can out of your Christian
life? Do you make excuses that you’re too tired or too busy
when opportunities arise to grow spiritually, or do you make the
Kingdom top priority? The Catholic tradition speaks of “Seven
Deadly Sins.” One of the sneakiest and deadliest is often overlooked, which is exactly why it is sneaky and deadly. It is called
“sloth” or spiritual laziness. The symptoms? The sloth
perceives the kingdom of God to be boring and so can find no
energy to pursue it. Everything else–work, kids’ soccer games,
Super Bowl parties, shopping–takes precedence so that the
sloth never gets around to seeking God. A wise monk once
told me that the greatest sin of our sex-saturated, hyperactive
culture was not lust but ironically that spiritual laziness called
sloth. I think he was on to something.

PRAYER FOR THE THIRD EXTRAORDINARY
GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE SYNOD OF BISHOPS
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you
we contemplate the splendor of
true love, to you we turn with
trust. Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too may be
places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic Churches.
Holy Family of Nazareth, may
families never again experience
violence, rejection and division:
may all who have been hurt or
scandalized find ready comfort
and healing. Holy Family of Nazareth, may the approaching
Synod of Bishops make us once more mindful of the
sacredness and inviolability of the family,
and its beauty in God's plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer. Amen.
El más Escurridizo de los 7 Pecados Capitales
A los 16 años, mi único interés era el rock ‘n roll. Si mi banda
no tocaba el sábado por la noche, yo estaba entre el público
escuchando otras bandas. Jamás se me hubiera ocurrido que
pasaría mis noches de sábado en un centro de conferencias
católico o en un retiro espiritual. Cierto, sin importar que tan
tarde me quedara despierto los sábados nunca dejaba de asistir
a la misa dominical a la mañana siguiente. Pero no era porque
la misa fuera la fuente y cumbre de mi vida, sino porque no
quería ir a la infierno. El ser rostizado a fuego lento durante
toda la eternidad no me parecía una idea muy atractiva. ¿Por
qué? Porque yo buscaba asiduamente la diversión, la alegría y la
aventura, y la iglesia era el último lugar donde esperaba
encontrar estas cosas. Describían el cielo como el “eterno
descanso”. Nada podía sonar más aburrido. En este evangelio el
cielo se nos pinta con colores de fiesta de bodas – una
celebración bulliciosa y energizarte con deliciosos platillos,
vinos exquisitos, bailes, risas y una gran camaradería. No es
cualquier fiesta de bodas. Esta fiesta es apta para un rey, puesto
que el novio es un Príncipe. Pero los representantes del rey
llevan invitaciones personales para esta fiesta del siglo y solo
algunos las aceptan. Tal vez parte de la culpa la tienen los
mensajeros. Tal vez sus rostros simplones y sus voces
monótonas hicieron que los invitados sospechara que cualquier
evento montado por el Rey sería muy aburrido. Pero ¿de
dónde les vino esta sospecha en primer lugar? Isaías habla
sobre el velo que cubre a todas las personas, un velo que se
extiende sobre todas las naciones (Isaías 25:6-10). Una red
tejida de engaños; no por una araña si no por la serpiente que
engaño a Eva en un principio. Es una inmensa campaña
propagandística que sutilmente se teje en los mensajes de las
películas, programas de televisión y anuncios impresos. El
mensaje es siempre: “Si haces lo que Dios dice, no disfrutaras
de la vida”. En el peor de los casos su reino es de opresión y en
el mejor de los casos de aburrimiento. O lo rechazamos por
completo o si de verdad creemos en Él, no hay que
desperdiciar mucho tiempo ni energía en la religión. Hay que
darle el “si” obligatorio a Dios, pero hay que salir a tener una
vida. Es por eso que los conciertos de rock y los encuentros de
soccer se llenan, pero las iglesias están vacías cuando hay
misiones en las parroquias. Es por eso que al rey en la parábola
le costó llenar su salón de banquetes. Seamos honestos, ¿ves la
búsqueda del reino de Dios como una tarea alegre o fastidiosa?
¿Haces solo lo mínimo, o tomas todos los beneficios
espirituales de la vida cristiana? ¿Pones la excusa de estar muy
cansado o muy ocupado cuando tienes oportunidad e crecer
espiritualmente, o es el Reino de Dios tu prioridad principal?
La tradición Católica habla sobre los “Siete pecaos capitales”.
Uno de ellos, es probablemente el más difícil de detectar y a
menudo lo pasamos por alto, y es por lo que se vuelve más
peligroso. Se llama “pereza” espiritual. ¿Cuáles son los
síntomas? La pereza percibe el Reino de Dios como aburrido y
por lo tanto no gasta energías para buscarlo. Todo lo demás –
trabajo, eventos de los niños, encuentros deportivos, fiestas,
compras – toma precedencia a la búsqueda del Reino de Dios.
Un sabio monje me dijo una vez que el pecado más grande de
nuestra cultura tan saturada de sexo e hiperactividad no es la
lujuria, si no que irónicamente es la pereza espiritual.
Creo que tiene razón.

“Con el Rosario se puede alcanzar todo.
Según una graciosa comparación, es una larga cadena que
une el cielo y la tierra, uno de cuyos extremos está en
nuestras manos y el otro en las de la Santísima Virgen.
Mientras el Rosario sea rezado,
Dios no puede abandonar al mundo,
pues esta oración es muy poderosa sobre su Corazón”.
