 LAST WEEKEND'S COLLECTION TOTALS:
06 / 07 JANUARY

Saint Joseph Parish
$1,594.00
from the envelopes and $184.00 from the plate. Thank you.
When one deducts from the sum of these two figures, $1,778.00 the parish's weekly financial obligation to the Diocese, i.e. assessments, $358.85 plus the weekly premiums for property and liability insurance, $149.20, the sum of which is $508.05, plus its weekly obligation to All Saints School, $987.21, the sum total of which is $1,495.26, one sees that $282.74 of this collection is available for operating the parish.

Saint Francis deSales Parish
$97.00
from the envelopes and $96.05 from the plate. Thank you.
When one deducts from the sum of these two figures, $193.05 the parish's weekly financial obligation to the Diocese, i.e. assessments, $55.15 plus the weekly premiums for property and liability insurance, $56.72, the sum of which is $111.87, plus its weekly obligation to All Saints School, $197.44, the sum total of which is $309.31, one sees that ($116.26) of this collection is available for operating the parish. This is a deficit!

FATHER CONNOLLY'S
RULES FOR MARRIED MEN
WHO WOULD RATHER BE HAPPY THAN MISERABLE

Note: I have shared these rules on a private basis with more than one married man. I have gotten sufficient positive feedback about them that now I would like to go public with them. If you think that these rules are meant "just for fun", you are, obviously, a boy of little brain, but we hope you will grow wise as you grow old.

#1 - Whenever there is a dispute or a difference of opinion between a husband and a wife, the wife is right and the husband - needless to say - is wrong.
#2 - Whenever the husband, foolish person that, alas, he often is, allows a dispute or difference of opinion to surface, he must apologize.
#3 - After apologizing, he must apologize again.
#4 - After apologizing, he must do penance.
#5 - After doing penance, he must apologize once more.
#6 - An obedient husband is a happy husband.
#7 - When the husband is happy, the wife is happy and, if there are children, the children are happy.
#8 - For the most part, God wants people to be happy - except for those married men who are too dumb to learn from their mistakes. God wants them to suffer, really suffer, but only until they get smart, at which point He wants them to be happy.

Married men of StJosPar and StFdSPar: Please memorize these rules! There will be a pop quiz.

ABOUT THESE PRAYERS

On the next three pages of this bulletin, you will find two prayers:

On pages 7 and 8
RENUNCIATION OF SATAN and CLAIMING THE FULL VICTORY (one prayer).

On page 9
A PRAYER BEFORE LOGGING ONTO THE INTERNET.

I strongly encourage everyone - most especially men and boys - to become familiar with these prayers.
Temptations to impurity are super-abundant in our society.
No man or boy between the ages of 12 and 92 can possibly remain pure without the grace of God.
God gives His grace to all who come to Him in prayer.
Let us ask Him to make us pure.
No man or boy is powerless in the face of temptations to pornography or self-abuse.
God will help us if we ask Him.


stjos/stfds: 01.14.2007 - 06



RENUNCIATION OF SATAN
and
CLAIMING the FULL VICTORY

I claim the full victory
that my Lord Jesus Christ
won on the Cross for me.

"Having disarmed the principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross." (Col 2:15)

His victory is my victory!

IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
I renounce all of the workings
of Satan in my life,
in all of its sundry forms,
whether those workings
were initiated in me
by my own sinful decisions
or by the carelessness and neglect
of my parents or guardians,
or by someone who took
improper advantage of me
when I was a child.
I reclaim whatever territory
I have ever surrendered to the Evil One,
due either to my own cowardice
or to the treachery of false friends.
I break all attachments I have
to Satan and to his demons.

stjos/stfds: 01.14.2007 - 07


I hurl back into his face
all his curses and spells.
Strengthened by the intercession
of the Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of God,
of Blessed Michael the Archangel,
of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul,
and of all the Angels and Saints of Heaven,
I beg You, LORD FATHER,
to command Satan
and all his foul minions,
whoever they may be,
to depart from me,
to cease and desist
from troubling me.
I beg You, LORD JESUS,
to expel the evil powers
that tempt me to offend
Your Divine Majesty
and to sully Your Image within me.
Consign them to hell,
there to await their final humiliation.
I beg You, LORD HOLY SPIRIT,
to take possession of me,
soul and body,
and to guard me
as Your own territory and possession.
AMEN.

A PRAYER
BEFORE LOGGING ONTO
THE INTERNET
[Note: St. Isidore of Seville, bishop and doctor of the Church,
has been named by the Holy Father as Patron Saint of the Internet.]

Almighty and eternal God,
Who created us in Thine Own Image
and bade us to seek after all
that is good, true and beautiful,
especially in the Second Divine Person,
Thine only-begotten Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
grant, we beseech Thee,
through the intercession of
Saint Isidore of Seville,
bishop and doctor,
that, during our journeys through the Internet,
we will direct our hands and eyes
only to that which is pleasing to Thee,
and will treat with charity and patience
all those persons whom we encounter.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen
.

WE ACKNOWLEDGE WITH GRATITUDE the receipt of a donation to StJosPar "in honor of the Sweet Infant Jesus, the Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph, for a favor received".
FOLLOW-UP TO LETTER TO CONGRESSMAN HOLDEN
If you recall, in last weekend's bulletin, I printed a letter that I had written to Tim Holden in which I (a) thanked him for his record of pro-life votes; (b) expressed some concern that he had made some statement in public that he was "conflicted" on the subject of embryonic stem cell research (ESCR); (c) invited him to speak with me and / or with others who could spell out for him the moral evil of ESCR; (d) asked him to vote against federal funding of ESCR.
I received a courteous - but totally unacceptable - reply from Congressman Holden. Unfortunately, on 11 Jan, Tim voted for HR 3, which funds research on human embryos from in-vitro fertilization clinics! The bill passed 253 to 174!
At this point, I want to refrain from saying anything that I might regret saying. Let me put it this way: Right now, I am a very unhappy constituent. We have all been pelosied! Tim said that he would call me next week to set up a meeting. We shall see what happens.

SOMEONE SENT ME THIS. IT SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD. ANYONE WANT TO CHECK IT OUT? [EBC]

About 2 years ago my wife and I were on a cruise through the western Mediterranean aboard a Princess liner. At dinner we noticed an elderly lady sitting alone along the rail of the grand stairway in the main dining room. I also noticed that all the staff, ships officers, waiters, busboys, etc., all seemed very familiar with this lady. I asked our waiter who the lady was, expecting to be told that she owned the line, but he said he only knew that she had been on board for the last four cruises, back to back.
As we left the dining room one evening I caught her eye and stopped to say hello. We chatted and I said, "I understand you've been on this ship for the last four cruises." She replied, "Yes, that's true." I said, "I don't understand" and she replied, without a pause, "It's cheaper than a nursing home."
So, there will be no nursing home in my future. When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Princess Cruise Ship. The average cost for a nursing home is $200 per day. I have checked on reservations at Princess and I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of $135 per day. That leaves $65 a day for:

1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.
2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant, or I can have room service (which means I can have breakfast in bed every day of the week)
3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.
4. They have free toothpaste and razors, and free soap and shampoo.
5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra $5 worth of tips will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.
6. I will get to meet new people every 7 or 14 days.
7. T.V. broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to have the mattress replaced? No Problem! They will fix everything and apologize for the inconvenience.
8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don't even have to ask for them.
9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on Medicare; if you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship they will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia? Name where you want to go! Princess will have a ship ready to go. Try that in a nursing home!
PS - And don't forget, when you die, they just dump you over the side at no charge.
