Immaculate Conception Church
Pro-Life Corner
This past week our parish and students from ICS and
Immaculata participated in the March for Life in Washington, D.C. We witnessed to the value and dignity of each
human life and the grave evil of abortion. Unfortunately,
many ignore what abortion truly is and the devastation it
is causing in our nation. In 1990 John Cardinal O'Connor
clearly stated what abortion is: "Abortion is not merely the
removal of some tissue from a woman's body. Abortion is
not the removal of a living 'thing' that would become human if it were allowed to remain inside the woman's body.
Abortion is the destruction of an unborn baby. A new human life begins as soon as the egg has been fertilized.
Science reveals without question that once the egg is
fertilized every identifying characteristic of a brand-new
human being is present, even the color of the eyes and
the hair, the sex and everything else. Pregnancy is the
period for this new human life to mature, not to 'become
human'—it already is. This is why the Church considers
abortion the killing of a human being, and why the Second Vatican Council called it an 'unspeakable crime.'
The World Medical Association adopted in September
1948 the Declaration of Geneva: 'I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of conception;
even under threat I will not use my medical knowledge
contrary to the laws of humanity.' In October 1969 the
International Code of Medical Ethics stated: 'A doctor
must always bear in mind the importance of preserving
human life from the time of conception until death.' Again
in 1970 the World Medical Association reaffirmed its position by way of the Declaration of Oslo: 'The first moral
imposed upon the doctor is respect for human life as expressed in the Declaration of Geneva: "I will maintain the
utmost respect for human life from the first moment of
conception."' In 1974 the Declaration on Procured Abortion (by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith)
stated: 'Respect for human life is called for from the time
that the process of generation begins. From the time that
the ovum is fertilized, a life is begun which is neither that
of the father nor of the mother; it is rather the life of a new
human being with its own growth. It would never be made
human if it were not human already. ..' This declaration
was ratified by Pope Paul Vl, who confirmed it and ordered it to be promulgated." Once we come face to face
with what abortion is, how can we remain silent? We
must defend the rights of the innocent, especially when
they can offer no defense on their own. As Cardinal
O'Connor further stated: "No one has a right to choose to
put an innocent human being to death. The use of ambiguous language and euphemisms has been tragically successful in switching the emphasis from 'life' to 'choice,' so
that those who are trying to defend life are accused of
trying to deprive people of choice. The argument then
becomes: 'In a pluralistic society, what authority do you
have to deprive me of my reproductive rights?' Reproductive rights, however, are not the issue; killing human beings is."

Have you ever wondered? Do you have
questions about ASSISTED SUICIDE?
There has been much in the news lately on PHYSICIANASSISTED SUICIDE, misnomered as "death with dignity" and
"compassion in dying." When does PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED
SUICIDE become an obligation rather than a "choice?" Please
attend a special information session on PHYSICIANASSISTED SUICIDE at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 233 No.
Main St., Milltown, NJ on Tuesday evening, February 3rd, at 7
pm. This program will feature Dr. Matthew Suh who will share
medical perspectives on assisted suicide. Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life, will also be available
to share information on federal and state initiatives related to
assisted suicide. This is an important and timely topic we all
need to be aware of. Refreshments will be served after the
presentations. Please attend.

Mothers’ Retreat Prayer Vigil
On the weekend of February28-March1, 2015, Immaculate
Conception will hold its 14th Mothers’ Retreat.
This is a very special time for mothers at all of
life’s stages to step back from their routine and
seek refreshment, inspiration and direction from
God. We are seeking people who would be willing to support these women in prayer during the
daytime hours of the retreat. If you are interested in participating in this prayer vigil, please
contact Jeanine Cavanagh at (908) 725-1112
ext. 1126. or Susan Spencer-Craig at 908-218-0025 email at:

SHIP's Mobile Soup
Kitchen travels throughout the
county to provide the homeless and
working poor with fresh hot meals. On
the first and third Mondays of the
month, ICC parish volunteers staff the Mobile Soup Kitchen with food servers. We meet at 5pm at St Joseph's
church in North Plainfield and distribute meals there for
about 1 hour. We are always in need of new volunteers.
No experience necessary. This is a great opportunity for
students who need Confirmation hours. If you would like
to get involved, please contact Debbie Berger 908- 526 7711 or Jeanine Cavanagh at 908-725-1112 for more information.
Penny Collection:
For over 19 years,
our penny collection has been converting your
generous contributions into relief for the poor and
the hungry. Our January collection total was
190.44. The idea is that by taking small donations
from many individuals each month, we will be
able to gather sufficient sums that can make an impact on improving the lives of the poor. 100% of these donations goes
directly to fund SHIPs programs, Thank you. Our next Penny
Collection, the first weekend of the month, is planned for
1/31 - 2/1/15 .We encourage you to keep a ‘pennies for the
poor’ jar/can in your home and make this collection a family
ministry. Together we can convert our individual “spare
change” (and spare dollars) into an answer of Christ’s call to
care for the poor. Please be aware we are unable to accept
foreign currency, the counting machine cannot process these coins.

Where can I donate my gently used Stuff?
From time to time we know here at Immaculate Conception Church you have items like, clothes, furniture, or baby gear, which you no longer need but are just too good
to throw away. What a great way to give new life to your
things and help those in need by donating your gently
used items. Below is a list of agencies and places that
gladly accept your gently used items. Please feel free to
contact these agencies and bring your “stuff” to them.
Leaving your items here at the church, although is convenient, creates a dilemma for us. We then have to find a
volunteer to bring your items to the proper agency, which
creates a lag time before some can enjoy the item. We
are asking that you do not bring your donations to the
church, but instead one of the agencies listed below. If
you have something and you are not sure where you can
donate it, give us a call, we will gladly help you find somewhere to donate your item.
Giving Network Seeks Household Items for Local Families
in Need -Your extra household items can really make a difference to people right here in Somerset County! The Giving Network is a local charity headquartered in Somerville which was
established after Hurricane Floyd to help families who had lost
everything in the flood and continues to assist struggling families in Somerset County with basic household needs. (Some of
those families are formerly homeless, transitioning from IHN
into their own place again.) We are an all volunteer organization which collects donations from people in the community
and delivers them to people in need. A full list of donations can
be found here: http://givingnet.org/1_7_Donations.html. We
can also use larger furniture -- please contact the Giving Network directly http://givingnet.org/1_2_Contact.html to donate
these. If you have any gathering dust, we would be more than
happy to get them to people who will appreciate them. Tax
receipt is available. All should be in clean, working condition,
and without significant tears or chips. Also if a scout, school, or
church group would like to hold a donation drive, we would be
delighted to work with you to help you earn volunteer hours,
enable friends and families to clean out cupboards and help our
struggling neighbors at the same time!
Pregnancy Aid and Information Center- “We must protect
the most defenseless of all human beings – the unborn child in
the womb of his mother!” was the plea of our Holy Father,
Pope Benedict XVI, when he celebrated Mass here in New
York City.
The Pregnancy Aid and Information Center of Raritan answers this plea by assisting mothers facing the dilemma of
a problem pregnancy, helping them choose alternatives to
abortion. Some items we always need are include; clothing for newborns to one year, bottles, diapers, baby wipes,
toiletries, baby formula, layettes and similar baby items,
crib, swings & car seats. Contact the Pregnancy Aid Center
at 908 526-8121. Thank you.

The New Evangelization—Discipleship / Stewardship
Dinner with the Pope
On 2/5 we will meet from 6:00p.m. at Alfonso’s Restaurant. In preparation for our
attendance in World meeting of Families
Father Charles will discuss Saint John Paul
the Great's Encyclical "Familiaris Constorio"
on the family! Please call the Office of New
Evangelization and make reservations for this event (908)

“Defending True
Marriage and family”
Pope Francis this past weekend speaking to a very large
crowd in the Philippines said,
“The family is threatened by
growing efforts on the part of
some to redefine the very institution of marriage, by relativism, by the culture of the
ephemeral, by a lack of openness to life,” Francis said.
“These realities are increasingly under attack from powerful forces, which threaten to disfigure God’s plan for creation.” Contrary to what some of the press have reported,
Pope Francis is a strong defender of true marriage and
the natural law. Like Saint John Paul the Great and Pope
Benedict XVI, he urges us to defend true marriage
against the promotion of same sex marriage which is contrary to the natural law and harmful to God’s plan for the
family. Furthermore, at his last gathering in Manila, the
largest gathering in human history, estimated at 6 million
people, he urged the faithful to protect the family “against
insidious attacks and programs contrary to all that we
hold true and sacred, all that is most beautiful and noble
in our culture.” Let us heed our Holy Father’s advice and
not cower nor run during these culturally embattled times
for the sake of our Lord and His children. The Lord is with
us!
We invite parishioners to read and reflect on the
material presented in this column on marriage and the
family. Each week new material will be presented.
Meanwhile we encourage parishioners to read the information presented on the website of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops by going to www.usccb.org and
click on Issues and Action. Then go to Marriage and
Family.
The secular media greatly distorts the teaching of
the Church and often fails to get to the real issues confronting Marriage & Family. The Supreme Court is about
to hear some new cases on the issue of gay “marriage”.
Please take the time to read and study and become fully
informed about the legal and social and moral implications surrounding this issue.

traditional Irish folk dancing for couples, and is similar
to the Virginia Reel or Square Dancing in that it is
done in groups or couples. No experience is needed,
and singles welcome - we will have someone for you
to dance with. Dancing in the Somerville Saint Patrick's Day Parade with us is optional, but fun! For
more information, contact David and Heather Lang at
jpiiarts@hotmail.com, or 908-253-3282.

Miércoles, 28 de Enero: No Adoración
Nos afecta lo que leemos en el evangelio? Escuchamos
la palabra de Dios con el deseo de que algo suceda en
nuestra vida?
En el evangelio, Jesús urge a acoger su palabra y su
persona: Se ha cumplido el plazo, esta cerca el Reino
de Dios. Estas palabras señalan los comienzos de la
misión del Mesías, y también son un toque de atención a
cada uno de nosotros: no podemos diferir la respuesta a
Cristo, no podemos dejar para otro día la invitación que
nos hace de vivir con El y para El. La reacción de Pedro
y Andrés, de Juan y Santiago, lo ilustran. Ellos dejan
todo para seguir a Jesús. Los primeros apóstoles
perciben que hay que seguir a Cristo en seguida, porque
en El está la propuesta de felicidad que desean. Cristo
ha de ser acogido plenamente y para ello hay que
librarnos de todo lo que nos pueda distraer de él.
Hay que sentir la urgencia de decir si a Cristo y percibir
con su ayuda que sin El todo lo demás es apariencia.
San Pablo nos señala que sin Cristo, estando apegados
a los bienes materiales, los disfrutamos pero finalmente
eso se acaba.
Jesucristo nos enseña a tratar todas las cosas, y
especialmente a las personas, desde la dimensión de la
eternidad, desde su amor infinito. Gracias a Cristo
podemos relacionarnos con el mundo de una forma
nueva, viendo como Dios ama a las personas, no
juzgándolas en su limitación, ni tasándolas por su
utilidad.
Sin la cercanía de Cristo, cualquier realidad puede
engañarnos y oscurecernos.
Jesús dice: Convertíos y creed la Buena Noticia. Quizás
nos cuesta dar pasos en el seguimiento de Cristo no por
la exigencia que a veces supone, sino porque no
acabamos de ver que eso sea bueno para nosotros.
Convertirse quiere decir dejar de mirarnos a nosotros
mismos, no permanecer encerrados en la
autocompasión o en la satisfacción necia sino
detenernos de verdad a mirar a Cristo. Acaso no está en
El todo lo que queremos?
Demos gracias a Dios por medio de su Hijo, en el
Espíritu Santo, porque se apiadó de nosotros a causa de
la inmensa misericordia con que nos ama; estando
nosotros muertos por los pecados, nos ha hecho vivir
con Cristo, para que gracias a El fuésemos una nueva
persona.

El Significado de la Sexualidad Humana
El mundo tangible, terrenal y corpóreo es mas
que material inerte o arcilla de modelar para la voluntad
humana. La creación es sagrada. Esta tiene un
significado sacramental. La creación refleja la Gloria de
Dios. Eso incluye nuestro cuerpo. Nuestra sexualidad
tiene el poder de procrear y participa en la dignidad de
ser creados a imagen de Dios. Tenemos que vivir
según este principio.
La enseñanza pontificia más reciente del Magisterio sobre la
educación sexual se encuentra en el número 37 de la exhortación
apostólica de Juan Pablo II, "Familiaris consortio", sobre la
misión de la familia cristiana en el mundo actual, publicada en
1981. Lo primero que nos enseña el Papa aquí es que la educación
sexual debe ser situada en el contexto de una educación para el
amor, dada por los padres de forma delicada: "La educación para
el amor como don de sí constituye también la premisa
indispensable para los padres, llamados a ofrecer a los hijos una
educación sexual clara y delicada." Es decir, los padres deben
usar un lenguaje y un modo de comunicación que respete la
modestia natural de sus hijos, y que no se convierta en una
ocasión más de incitación al pecado, sino que resulte en un
correcto aprecio del don de la sexualidad humana y de la castidad.
"En este contexto es del todo irrenunciable la educación para la
castidad, como virtud que desarrolla la auténtica madurez de la
persona y la hace respetar el `significado esponsal' del cuerpo."
579
¿Recuerda Las Fechas Especiales de
su Familia?
Dentro de las características que tienen nuestras
familias, está la de celebrar las fechas especiales; estos
momentos únicos nos traen a la memoria acciones que
sólo ocurrieron una sola vez y que no volverán a llegar,
tales como: la fecha en que se conocieron, el día que
unieron sus vidas desde el Sacramento del matrimonio,
el nacimiento de su primer hijo o de los posteriores, las
fechas de cumpleaños, la fecha de aniversarios y otras
celebraciones que hacen parte de aquello que llamamos
recuerdos familiares.
Todo esto nos hace profundizar la pregunta que
sustenta la reflexión para el día de hoy: padres,
recuerdan las fechas especiales de su familia?
recuerdan, celebran y expresan esos momentos
inolvidables?
El trabajo en exceso, las distracciones sociales, a veces
la falta de fortalecer el amor, hacen que se nos olviden
ciertos momentos que marcaron nuestra vida.
Posiblemente a la fecha de hoy, usted no volvió a
recordar o se le olvidó decirle a su hijo (a) o esposo(a)
feliz cumpleaños, te amo mucho, gracias por compartir
un año más de aniversario, feliz día del padre, feliz día
de la madre, feliz día de la familia, felicitaciones por tu
ascenso en el trabajo, me siento orgulloso(a) de ti por
las calificaciones en la escuela, gracias por el día de
hoy... Estas fechas reciben el nombre de especiales
porque cuando un ser querido las expresa, el sentido y
significado de la familia se fortalece mucho más.
Padres, les invitamos para que en su calendario o
agenda personal, anoten las fechas especiales de su
familia para este año; piensen cómo van a celebrarlo y
qué les van a decir, de tal forma que cuando llegue ese
día, su familia sienta que verdaderamente no es una
fecha común, sino una fecha especial.
Padres, a veces los detalles costosos y en ocasiones
adquiridos a último momento no trascienden; un abrazo
fuerte, un beso con el corazón, un desayuno a la cama
preparado por usted o una acción de la cual no está
acostumbrado, deja tanta huella que ni el paso del
tiempo logra borrarlo.
No es tarde, si lo olvidó o está cerca la fecha, está a
tiempo para celebrar con los suyos el gozo de ser parte
de un núcleo social que es la esencia y futuro de la
humanidad: la familia.

Padrinos para el Bautizo
Requisitos:
Los Estados de derecho canónico
(Iglesia) de un Padrino deben ser:

Ser un Católico Bautizado y Confirmado que asiste
a la Misa semanal y recibe la Eucaristía.
 Al menos 14 años de edad (siempre que el Padrino
o la Madrina hayan recibido la Confirmación)
 No ser uno de los padres
 Llevar una vida moral según la doctrina de la Iglesia, y ser un buen modelo Católico.
 Si es casado, estar casado según la ley de la Iglesia
 Ser un usuario registrado de su parroquia actual y
obtener un certificado de elegibilidad
 Sólo podemos dar Certificados de Elegibilidad a
aquellos que están registrados en nuestra parroquia.
Ya que se requiere solamente un padrino Católico, un
miembro Bautizado de otra iglesia cristiana (pero no
católico) puede servir como un testigo Cristiano. Puesto
que los Padrinos renuevan su Promesa Bautismal prometido durante el rito del bautismo; una persona no
bautizada no puede servir en este importante papel.
