The Episcopal Church: The Church of What's Happening Now!
This 75th General Convention (meeting) of the Episcopal Church was held in Columbus Ohio, from 13 to 21 June 2006. Among the matters dealt with by the Convention were the following three that had to do with homosexuality.
A095 Gay and Lesbian Affirmation
All three of these motions
were passed by the Convention.
And then there was the following motion (resolution) brought up at Convention by some idealistic person or persons. We give you the full text of the motion.
D058 Salvation through
"And what happened
to this motion (resolution)?" you ask!
I respectfully suggest to the 242 who still believe in Jesus to apply for membership in His Church, i.e. full communion with the Catholic Church. It must be evident by now that the Episcopal Church has the backbone of a dish of tapioca pudding. The English Reformation is a lost cause! Come back home!
Joyce, Director of Advertising: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Mr. Joyce:
On page 11 of the 8 August edition of the Pottsville Republican & Herald I see an advertisement that I consider entirely inappropriate. I came across it on my own. No one pointed it out to me. I am a faithful subscriber to and regular reader of the Republican.
I am referring, of course, to the Ken's Tires soft-porn advertisement.
I could write you an essay specifying my reasons for objecting to this advertisement. However, I don't want to insult your intelligence or waste your time. You know it is wrong. I know it is wrong. Anyone who holds to fundamental moral values knows it is wrong. The only ones who would defend this kind of advertising are moral defectives.
I ask you not to accept this kind of advertising from Ken's Tires or from anyone.
I shall be printing this e-mail in my parish bulletin this weekend and shall say a few words from the pulpit about it.
If you send me a reply, I shall be happy to print your reply in a future bulletin.
I am sending a copy of this to Ken's Tires. I have no idea what their reaction will be, but I am not hopeful.
However, I am hopeful in regard to the Republican & Herald and in regard to you. I have respect for your newspaper and for you.
Very truly yours,
(Rev.) Edward B. Connolly

|PAUL AUGUSTINE BUONO, third of the seven children of Anthony and Bridget (Billingsley) Buono, will receive his First Holy Communion today (Sunday) at the 10:45 a.m. Mass. Paul is seven years old and was baptized at St. Joseph Church in 1999. He was so impressed with his first sacramental encounter, he decided to drive up to Pottsville from his home in Front Royal (VA) for his second and third sacramental encounters: First Confession and first reception of the Holy Eucharist. We are more than happy to accommodate him. He is an excellent boy, much loved by his parents and brothers and sisters. But it is God the Father, above all, Who loves him the most - loves him so much that He gives him His only-begotten Son, so that he might never perish but might have eternal life.|
|IN LAST WEEKEND'S BULLETIN, we mentioned that St. Joseph Parish had donated a quantity of bread and wine (for Mass) - about $70.00 worth - to the Missionaries of the Poor in Jamaica. We suggested that someone might want to make a contribution towards the expense. We are grateful for the response! You share in a special way in the Masses at which this bread and wine will be used.!|

LUCY FORTE CARUSO,
a member of Saint Joseph Parish, died on Saturday, 5 August.
Born on 11 September 1911, she was 94 years old.
Lucy is one of the nine children of the late Ralph and Adelina (Paolini) Forte. She was born and baptized in Italy and came to the United States as a small child.
On 26 December 1935, in St. Joseph Church in the presence of Fr. DeStefano, Lucy was married to Michael Caruso, also a member of St. Joseph Parish. Michael died in 1974.
Michael and Lucy have one child: their son, John M. Caruso, who survives.
There are four grandchildren: David J. Caruso; Michael J. Caruso; Stephen J. Caruso; Gina M. Caruso.

Five of Lucy's siblings are deceased: Edward P. Forte; Joseph E. Forte; Matthew J. Forte; Stephen R. Forte; Bertha Forte McDonald.
Two of Lucy's sisters survive her: Mary Forte LaSelva and Rita Forte Farrow.
The Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at St. Joseph Church on Wednesday, 9 August. The interment took place in the parish cemetery.
We pray that our sister, Lucy, will receive from God a kind and merciful judgment. May she be delivered from all sin and human imperfection. Washed in the Blood of Jesus, may she come to see God face to face.
Eternal rest grant unto Lucy Caruso, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
