Recently Deceased: We pray for the people who

God in the Resurrection: Patricia Stypulkoski
One of the Redemptoristine Sisters here in
Beacon, Sr. Hildegard Pleva O.Ss.R., gave a
beautiful reflection at an All Souls’ Day service
last year. Sr. Hildegard graciously gave us
permission to reprint her reflection here:
On Mourning Those Whose Faith was Weak
Many of us have been consoled in our grief by
remembering the deep faith of the person no longer
with us. We may have observed firsthand how the
one we loved and respected was carried through
the dying process by faith in a loving God. Or
perhaps the sadness of the day of their departure
or the day of their burial was eased by our
imagining their joy as they entered into the
embrace of the God whom they knew and loved.
But my words now are for those who grieve the loss
of someone whose faith was not strong; whose
faith was underdeveloped; whose faith was long
ago jettisoned in the face of great pain, misfortune
or disillusionment. Preparing their funerals and
burial rites may have seemed a bit off kilter
because we never really knew how they were with
It was this way with me when my father died last
April. True to his utterly in control character and
while he was in Hospice care at home, he planned
everything. At his request he met with the funeral
director and pastor of the Episcopal Church where
he would be buried. He wrote his own obituary,
wanted no church service, requested military
honors and allowed for only a few words at the
While not a member of Generation X, he could
have declared like some of them, “I am not religious
but I am spiritual.” I believe my father was a deeply
spiritual man. Were he not, how could he have
been such a loving and faithful husband for almost
70 years, such a lover and connoisseur of music
and art, such a steady reliable friend, or such a
faithful citizen of the country of his adoption? He
often asked me to pray for him. But he was a
pragmatic man wary of all illusion.
Where did I find my consolation if I could not find it
in the sure knowledge of his faith? Where can we
find some peace when we lose someone whose
faith had not matured, who seemed to have no
faith, or who chose a spiritual path unlike our own?
I found my peace in a passage of Scripture
frequently read at funerals but little meditated upon:
The souls of the just are in the hand of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
and their passing away was thought an affliction
and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
For if before men, indeed, they be punished,
yet is their hope full of immortality;
chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
because God tried them
and found them worthy of himself.
As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
In the time of their visitation they shall shine,
and shall dart about as sparks through stubble…
I read this passage and no longer wondered about
the quality of the grand reunion of my father’s soul
with his creator. In that reunion all has been
revealed to him. Now he knows all about God, all
those things he missed or questioned or puzzled
about all his life. Now he knows utterly
unconditional love.
Let our consolation be found in the image of God
taking such souls to himself and transforming them
into brilliant light. Where once their intellect or
ignorance, their pride or their lack of self-worth,
their self-centeredness or their frenzied busy-ness
kept God at a distance or out of their realm
altogether; now they have bridged the gap. All
distance has been erased by union with God who
knew their hearts as only God can know them. With
this image before us we can say with comforting
certainty, “Now they know.”
Bereavement Support Group
A bereavement support group has been organized
for all persons who are grieving the death of a
loved one. These bi-weekly sessions will help
guide people through their grieving process in a
safe, supportive environment. It takes courage to
face the many feelings and life changes that result
from the death of a loved one. By participating in a
support group, you will have the opportunity to
share with others who are grieving, learn about the
process of grief and be supported during this
difficult time. This program will begin on Monday,
November 10th at 7pm in the Sacristy of St.
Joachim’s Church. For more information, please
call the Parish Office at 845-838-0915. Thank you,
Deacon Marty.

medio de Jesús. Los llevará con él.

“¡Ya está aquí el novio! ¡Salid a su encuentro!
Hoy, se nos invita a reflexionar sobre el fin de la
existencia; se trata de una advertencia del Buen
Dios acerca de nuestro fin último; no juguemos,
pues, con la vida. «El Reino de los Cielos será
semejante a diez vírgenes, que, con su lámpara en la
mano, salieron al encuentro del novio». El final de
cada persona dependerá del camino que se escoja; la
muerte es consecuencia de la vida -prudente o
necia- que se ha llevado en este mundo. Muchachas
necias son las que han escuchado el mensaje de
Jesús, pero no lo han llevado a la práctica.
Muchachas prudentes son las que lo han traducido
en su vida, por eso entran al banquete del Reino.
La parábola es una llamada de atención muy seria.
«Velad, pues, porque no sabéis ni el día ni la hora».
No dejen que nunca se apague la lámpara de la fe,
porque cualquier momento puede ser el último. El
Reino está ya aquí. Enciendan las lámparas con el
aceite de la fe, de la fraternidad y de la caridad
mutua. Nuestros corazones, llenos de luz, nos
permitirán vivir la auténtica alegría aquí y ahora.
Los que viven a nuestro alrededor se verán también
iluminados y conocerán el gozo de la presencia del
Novio esperado. Jesús nos pide que nunca nos falte
ese aceite en nuestras lámparas.
«La Iglesia es también descrita como esposa
inmaculada del Cordero inmaculado, a la que Cristo
amó y se entregó por ella para santificarla, la unió

fiesta de la Inmaculada Concepción (entonces celebrada
el 9 de diciembre de 1531) que nuestra señora de
Guadalupe, patrona de los niños no nacidos y de las
Américas, apareció por primera vez a San Juan Diego.
La noche Nacional de oración por la vida tiende un
puente sobre estas dos fiestas en honor a nuestra
Santísima madre y para orar por la restauración de un
sentido de santidad por toda la vida humana. Por favor
acompáñenos desde las 9:00 de la noche del lunes 8 de
diciembre hasta la 1 de la mañana del martes 9 de
diciembre en la iglesia de San Juan así como nos
uniremos a otras parroquias en la oración y la meditación
en un esfuerzo nacional para unir nuestras oraciones con
los católicos en todo el país, en un esfuerzo por convertir
corazones hacia Cristo, poniendo así fin al aborto y a
todos los pecados contra la cultura de la vida y para la
curación de los que sufren como consecuencia de los
mismos. Comenzaremos a las 9:00 de la noche con la
exposición del Santísimo Sacramento seguido rezaremos
el Rosario, una oración silenciosa y meditación y al final
con la bendición a 1de la mañana del Martes, 9 de
diciembre. Por favor marque sus calendarios y planean
asistir a este importante evento contra la cultura de la
vida que nos enfrentamos actualmente. Gracias, diácono
