NATIONAL eGIVING DAYS OF SUMMER

Our Lady of Mount Carmel can take particular joy in these summer days, as our response to eGiving has been wonderful!

To build on this success, I am setting a National eGiving Days of Summer Challenge. My goal is for Our Lady of Mount Carmel families to put envelopes on a permanent summer vacation and make the switch to eGiving this summer. The more families who take this National eGiving Challenge, the more consistent and predictable our offertory will be each month – and this will help us do even more to spread Christ’s love in our community.

Being part of this challenge is simple: Visit www.faithdirect.net and use our church code: NJ791.  Thank you for your continued support of our parish family with your time and talents as well as treasure!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HERE ARE A FEW DIFFERENT WAYS TO READ THE BIBLE

 

If you don't know where to begin, try these practical options for reading Sacred Scripture.

Opening up a Bible can be overwhelming for many people. It is such a big book, with hundreds of verses, chapters and countless names that are foreign to a modern reader.

This is why many people close the Bible immediately after opening it up. It is simply too much to handle. However, it doesn’t have to be that way.

The Bible is a profound collection of books that can be read in many different ways. Below are a few of these ways.

 

Start with the Gospels

If reading the entire Bible is daunting, first open the Gospels. This can be much easier to grasp and the names and episodes within them are usually familiar. Start with the Gospel of Mark, the shortest Gospel. Reading Mark can give you a sense of accomplishment as well as an interest to see how the other Gospel writers narrate the life of Jesus.

 

Find a reading schedule that splits up the Bible over a year

Dr. Mary Healy, a prominent Catholic biblical scholar, has taken the time to create a balanced plan for reading the Bible in a single calendar year. It can be downloaded through this link: https://speakingofscripture.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/bible_in_a_year.pdf.

 

Read the Bible according to the “Bible Timeline”

One of the most influential Bible studies offered at OLMC has been Ascension Press’ “The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation.”  This is “a fascinating study that takes participants on a journey through the entire Bible. They will go deep into each period of salvation history and discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture. Using a unique color-coded system, they will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and see how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our faith”

 

Start with the Psalms

The Book of Psalms in the Old Testament contains profound poetic language that speaks directly to the heart. Tradition says that the Psalms were written by King David and they remain to this day a focal point for Jews and Christians in their daily prayers. After reading the Psalms, it can help create more interest in reading the rest of the Bible.

 

If you have not opened up your Bible, begin today. Read (slowly) for two minutes every day.

FOR SALE ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 25

A few months ago Fred Weiss, a long-time benefactor of our church and school, passed away. One of his wishes was to have his possessions sold to benefit OLMC. The sale will be held on Saturday, August 25, and we are looking for volunteers to help before and on the day of the sale. If you would like to help, please contact Christina at the rectory: 973-334-1017 / csimonetti@olmcboonton.org.

 

 

 

DEO GRATIAS SOCIETY

Giving thanks to God for a lifetime of blessing

Consider making or updating your will, and joining OLMC’s Deo Gratias Society, with the following simple language:

After all my bills are paid, I want 10 percent of my estate   (a tithe) to go to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.

Your thoughtful planning will endow our future and leave a legacy of love that will last forever.

 

 

 

 

Jesus, Our Salvation

"I am the Bread of Life"


Dear Friends,

I don't know about you, but I've been hit hard by the recent revelations concerning clergy sexual abuse.

The whole state of affairs is scandalous. If you're struggling to find your way through this crisis, you are not alone. I am right there with you.

The idea that priests and prelates would abuse their power over people - even over seminarians and other priests - is sickening. The havoc this is causing in innumerable lives is immense, and it cries out for vengeance.

Let me be clear that anger is the right response to this. If you are not angry, you might want to check your pulse.

But I've also indulged despair on this one, and for that I repent. At my worst these past couple of weeks my day-to-day living was so clouded as a result of this ongoing saga that I fear I lost sight of Christ. I own that, and I am sorry for it.

The latest Sunday Gospels summon me back to faith. Jesus says:

"For the bread of God... gives life to the world."

No matter where we find ourselves today, Jesus is our salvation: When we turn over our hearts and lives to him we are restored and rejuvenated by his love, we are healed and made whole by his mercy, we are nourished and sustained by the Bread of Life, his Body and Blood.

Please pray for me, my friends. Know of my prayers for you and yours. And if you need to talk, just let me know.


Christ's Peace,
Father Daniel

δοῦλος Χριστοῦ Ἰησοῦ

 

The above comes from Father Daniel’s weekly email “Blast from the Pastor.” To receive this email and other OLMC announcements, contact the rectory or email admin@olmcboonton.org and ask to be added to the list. Thank you!
