"Getting by with a little
help from our friends" is
not an idea that began
with the Beatles. Certainly
the idea of "getting by
with a little help from
God" goes back at least to
the first reading today
from Exodus. How we get
that help, however, is the
key to this weekend's
scriptures.
No matter how inadequate
Moses felt to the task God
had given him, he
persevered--even though
he needed help from the
people around him. The
Israelites especially
depended on God for
freedom. The woman in
the Gospel, desperate and
destitute, had no one to
depend on, but still she
would not give up. She
could not afford to bribe
the unscrupulous judge,
but she pestered him into
weariness until finally he met her demands.
We sometimes need to turn to others to help us through difficult times;
but if we always turn to God, we won't be disappointed, for our help, the
psalm assures us, is from the Lord.

PERSEVERANCE
In today's Gospel, Jesus gives a clever example of why we are to persevere in praying, even
if we think the prayer is not being heard. The crooked judge just wanted to get that widow
off his back. She was lucky her adversary didn't pester the judge, too; he might have gone
the other way. So we can pray to God with even more confidence, because we know that God
loves us and will answer our prayers.
St. Paul carries that theme of perseverance even further. He is not just talking about prayer
here; he encourages Timothy to persevere in proclaiming God's word as well. That command
we may find more challenging than prayer. He tells Timothy (and us!) to "convince,
reprimand and encourage through all patience and teaching" (2 Timothy 4:2). How can we
do that?
"Convince" reminds me that our faith should be reasonable. Not that we can prove all that
we believe in a scientific way, but our faith should be realistic; after all, God made the
world, so God should know how it works. Jesus' command to love one another, for instance,
can be taught much more convincingly by giving examples of love. A mother who hugs her
child when he is hurt, forgives him when he is sorry, and encourages him when he feels lost
is teaching that command in a way that will be remembered much longer than just telling
him to love people. So we can convince others of our faith by showing them examples of love,
forgiveness, and encouragement.
Paul also talks about reprimanding each other. That may be what he was thinking when he
says that proclaiming the word can sometimes be inconvenient. Most people find it difficult
to reprimand someone they are in charge of, much less one who is equal in status. That's
where patience comes in. A reprimand can be made patiently and gently, as a sign of
concern rather than authority.
Paul lastly mentions teaching. He probably was referring to teaching the Hebrew scriptures
and how they were fulfilled in Christ. Parents can do their part by teaching the stories from
the Bible, helping children to see God in creation, teaching them to pray, and being good
examples of God's love for them. If you send your children to religion classes or the parish
school, do what you can to support the teachers so that what the children learn at school is
practiced at home. What the children see (or don't see) at home has a much greater effect
than a few hours a week in a classroom.

I lift up my eyes toward the mountains; whence shall help come to me?
My help is from the LORD, who made
heaven and earth. -- Psalm 121:1-2
29th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“God will secure the rights of his chosen
ones who call out to him.” Luke 18:1-8
Faith Formation
“Prayer: The Faith Prayed”
We conducted the blessing of the animals on
Saturday, October 8th at 3:00PM. Fr. Joseph
blessed 1 chinchilla, 2 fish, 5 birds and large
selection of small and large dogs. Surprisingly,
not one cat chose to participate . . . maybe next
year. We prayed the pace prayer of St. Francis
since all of the animals were so “peaceful”!
Thanks to all who came and to Mrs. Reilly for
taking the lovely pictures that are posted on
Facebook.
The children have been reminded that they
must have their “church bulletins” signed by a
member of any ministry to validate their
participation at Sunday Mass! The signed
bulletins are to be given to their catechists.
I hope the time change for the Children’s Mass
(9:00AM) makes worshipping at Mass together
as a family more “convenient”.

"Oración: La Oración con Fe"
El sábado, 8 de octubre a las 3PM Padre José
bendijo a los animales y le dio la bendición 1 chinchilla, 2 peces, 5 aves y una gran selección de perros
pequeños y grandes. Sorprendentemente, ningún
gato optó por participar. . . tal vez el próximo año.
Rezamos la Oración de Paz de San Francisco, ya todos los animales estuvieron muy "pacífico"! Gracias
a todos los que asistieron y a la Sra. Reilly y por tomar las fotos preciosas que se publican en Facebook.
Le recordamos a los niños que deben tener sus
"boletines de la iglesia" firmado por un miembro de
cualquier ministerio para validar su participación en
la Misa del Domingo! Los boletines firmados deben
ser dados a sus catequistas.
Espero que el cambio de tiempo para la Misa de los

adorar en la Misa en familia.

Dear Parishioners,
I would like to thank each one of you that donated
school supplies. We were able to help about 200
children start the school year with new backpacks,
markers, notebooks, pencils and much more. We
distributed supplies from mid-August through the
beginning of October.
Without the help of our parishioners and
neighboring parishes, this could not have been
accomplished.
Please keep us on your shopping list so we can
continue our work of helping the families in need.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Lucy and the Volunteers
Next Sunday, World Mission Sunday, our Holy
Father, Pope Francis, calls every Catholic to
celebrate at the Eucharist, our vocation to be
missionary and to help the Missions. As
Catholics around the world, here at home and
in the Missions, gather at the Eucharistic
table, let us pray for the Church’s worldwide
mission and offer financial help through the
Propagation of the Faith for more than 1,150
dioceses in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the
Pacific Islands. Thank you for your generosity.
BULLETIN REFLECTION
Today’s theme is perseverance - Moses
keeping his hands upraised throughout the
battle, Paul urging Timothy to stay with the
task of preaching and teaching, and the
widow appealing to the corrupt judge. To be
faithful stewards of God’s gifts, we must
persevere in the roles of which we are called.
LIVING STEWARDSHIP
We are grateful this week for all stewards in
our parish who seek to discover their own
individual gifts and personal vocation/role
in this life.
29TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
In the Gospel today Jesus tells his disciples to
pray always without becoming weary. Indeed our
prayer must always be an expression of our love
for God, our family, our world, and especially for
the suffering poor.
As you place your gift in the Society of
St. Vincent de Paul Poor Box, please say
a special prayer for the poor who have
no one to pray for them.

Wantagh RR Station. Our talk for this evening
will be “From Anger to Enlightenment”, A
Survivor’s Story of Faith. Our guest speaker will

trauma survivor armed with the power of God’s
Hope, and on a mission to share this Hope with
all those he meets. 25 years ago, a gunman took
his life away but God gave it back to him. Rob was
clinically dead, but God allowed him to live to tell
his story. Rob’s story is about Hope, Faith, Anger
and Guilt. It’s also about God, Heaven and Forgiveness…He offers his testimony to honor Jesus
and as proof that God walks beside us each and
every day. Join us for Rob’s testimony of faith and
forgiveness. The talk begins at 7:30 - doors open
at 7:00 – come early – have something to eat –
