SALVETE FRIENDS!

THE TIME FOR THE LATIN MASS IN JERSEY CITY HAS BEEN MOVED TO 9:15 AM IN OUR LADY OF THE SIGN CONVENT CHAPEL OF ST. PAUL’S PARISH,  LOCATED AT THE BACK OF 20 GREENVILLE AVENUE, JERSEY CITY. To receive the most up-to-date information on the Jersey City Latin Mass Community, join their mailing list @ latinmassjc (at) gmail (dot) com. Newsworthy: “The first collection at the Latin Mass will be to benefit Magnificat House, a small non-profit organization, inspired by Catholic principles of solidarity and subsidiarity, that offers a home to low-income, including special-needs, adult women. Magnificat rents vacant convents from the Church in Jersey City (St. Paul the Apostle and Our Lady of Sorrows-and both homes being placed under the patronage of the Mother of God) and makes excellent use of them to provide a safe, dignified home. The rent collected from the over 50 residents (most are on Social Security, some work) covers about 3/4 of  expenses; the remainder is provided by generous supporters. Since many of the residents contribute to the home by cooking and cleaning in return for rent reduction, Magnificat is able to operate frugally and keep the rent very low. This allows the women to maintain their dignity. Matt Laracy who is sometimes at the Latin Mass and whose office is on the first floor of the convent, will be happy to give you more information and provide a tour of the home. Magnificat has also been an active supporter of   welcoming the Latin Mass to the chapel which is located within its house.  Your support in the way of  prayers and contributions are welcome! Visit magnificathome(dot)org for more information. Checks may be made payable to “Magnificat Home.”

ATTENTION Residents of Hunterdon, Middlesex, Somerset, and Warren county, PLEASE contact me via this web site regarding your interest in forming an Association of the Faithful to support the propagation of the Latin Mass and the Sacraments of the Catholic Church in accordance with Summorum Pontificum. Thank you in advance for your prompt response!

FEAST OF OUR LORD’S ASCENSION on Thursday, May 30, FIRST SATURDAY REPARATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART of MARY on June 1 and FIRST FRIDAY DEVOTIONS to the SACRED HEART on June 7 – are perfect opportunities to invite others who have never experienced the Latin Mass – or Catholicism.   To invite others, there are PDF flyers below the listings, which you can share, email, or print and photocopy.  If one time or place doesn’t work for you, see the Locations page for alternatives. Don’t forget – GO TO CONFESSION!

Whatever you do:  first, get yourself to Mass that day – even if you’re the “new guy” yourself – and second, don’t miss a chance to bring someone new to Latin Mass.  AND GO TO CONFESSION BEFORE HAND! For helpful resources, please see our “First Time at a Latin Mass” page.

MONDAY – WEDNESDAY MAY 27-29: Minor Rogation Days.  Traditionally, the three days preceding Ascension Thursday are days of prayer (and formerly fasting) during which we seek to ask God’s mercy, appease His anger, avert His chastisements manifest through natural disasters, and ask for His blessings, particularly with regard to farming, gardening, and other agricultural pursuits. They were marked with processions and the recitations of the Litany of the Saints. (The major rogation day was April 25.) “We need to remind ourselves that all our technological ad-vancements and creature comforts can be displaced in an instant. But we need to be most especially humble before the Creator, Who wills nature’s existence and doings at each instant.”

WEDNESDAY MAY 29 – SATURDAY JUNE 1, 2019National Opera Center, New York: TOTUM ARTIS OPUS, a Connecticut limited liability company specializing in the composition of new dramatic musical works, is excited to partner with friends at Delphic Forge to bring some of their creations to the stage. Their first collaboration is Gracchus, A modern opera on a grand scale, it features a musical score by David Hughes and book by Fr. Richard Munkelt, chaplain to the Sleepy Hollow Latin Mass community. Its ancient setting, the late Roman Republic, a period of socio-economic dislocation and factional strife, lends itself to an allegory of contemporary political history.  Production will begin with a musical reading in New York in late May 2019, with the assistance of Associate Producer Kevin Collins. To find out more about this production, please visit the Delphic Forge website. For more information about Totum Artis Opus, please e-mail us at info@totumartisopus.org or visit their website.

THE TIME FOR THE LATIN MASS IN JERSEY CITY HAS BEEN MOVED TO 9:15 AM IN OUR LADY OF THE SIGN CONVENT CHAPEL OF ST. PAUL’S PARISH,  LOCATED AT THE BACK OF 20 GREENVILLE AVENUE, JERSEY CITY. To receive the most up-to-date information on the Jersey City Latin Mass Community, join their mailing list @ latinmassjc (at) gmail (dot) com. Newsworthy: “The first collection at the Latin Mass will be to benefit Magnificat House, a small non-profit organization, inspired by Catholic principles of solidarity and subsidiarity, that offers a home to low-income, including special-needs, adult women. Magnificat rents vacant convents from the Church in Jersey City (St. Paul the Apostle and Our Lady of Sorrows-and both homes being placed under the patronage of the Mother of God) and makes excellent use of them to provide a safe, dignified home. The rent collected from the over 50 residents (most are on Social Security, some work) covers about 3/4 of  expenses; the remainder is provided by generous supporters. Since many of the residents contribute to the home by cooking and cleaning in return for rent reduction, Magnificat is able to operate frugally and keep the rent very low. This allows the women to maintain their dignity. Matt Laracy who is sometimes at the Latin Mass and whose office is on the first floor of the convent, will be happy to give you more information and provide a tour of the home. Magnificat has also been an active supporter of   welcoming the Latin Mass to the chapel which is located within its house.  Your support in the way of  prayers and contributions are welcome! Visit magnificathome(dot)org for more information. Checks may be made payable to “Magnificat Home.”

ATTENTION Residents of Hunterdon, Middlesex, Somerset, and Warren county, PLEASE contact me via this web site regarding your interest in forming an Association of the Faithful to support the propagation of the Latin Mass and the Sacraments of the Catholic Church in accordance with Summorum Pontificum.

Good Shepherd Sunday (2nd After Easter)

Posted on Updated on

My Dear Parishioners:

Next to the Crucifix, no other image of Our Lord is as dear to us as the image of the Good Shepherd. We are so blessed to have a Good Shepherd window in our Church. This very title of Christ brings comfort to our hearts. But Jesus is no sentimental Shepherd. His ‘shepherding” is serious business, a life-and-death struggle. The sheep that hear and follow His voice will remain in safety. The ones that go astray do so at their own peril. Today Jesus is Our Good Shepherd, the Way we must follow is clearly laid out for us in the Holy Scriptures and in the unchanged teaching of the Church throughout the ages. You and I must develop a spiritual “ear” for the Good Shepherd that allows us to discern between the false voices and empty promises of this world, which offers shallow answers to life’s tough questions. This is why we must all know our faith, what it teaches, and how we can apply it. We have printed the wonderful work, “My Catholic Faith” twice in the bulletin over the past few years, and it’s probably time to repeat it. As we know what the faith teaches, we are more ready to discern between the voices of truth, and the often cunning voice of error. By remaining close to Christ in a life of prayer and charity, we can walk confidently through life, knowing that, as we do, that Christ Himself is leading us, sometimes in green valleys where the waters roll sweet, sometimes through the darkness of sadness and despair, and sometimes through the fire of trials. But what we know with confidence is that as we remain close to Christ, He will bring us at last to our true and lasting Home in Heaven. May God help us all to remain close to Christ and listen to His voice. God bless you all. Your friend and pastor, Fr. Dan Hesko

“Amen, Amen, I say to you…I am the Good Shepherd; and I know Mine, and Mine know Me. As the Father knoweth Me, and I know the Father: and I lay down My life for My sheep…
My sheep hear My voice: and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them life everlasting; and they shall not perish for ever, and no man shall pluck them out of My hand.” – John 10:1, 14-15, 27-28


“Christ the Good Shepherd” from a homily on the Gospels by Saint Gregory the Great, Pope (Hom. 14. 3-6: PL 76, 1129- 1130)

“I am the Good Shepherd. I know My own” – by which I mean, I love them – “and My own know me.” (John 10:14) In plain words: “Those who love Me are willing to follow Me, for anyone who does not love the Truth has not yet come to know It.”

My dear brethren, you have heard the test we pastors have to undergo. Turn now to consider how these words of Our Lord imply a test for yourselves also. Ask yourselves whether you belong to His flock, whether you know Him, whether the light of His Truth shines in your minds. I assure you that it is not by faith that you will come to know Him, but by love; not by mere conviction, but by action. John the Evangelist is my authority for this statement. He tells us that anyone who claims to know God without keeping his commandments is a liar. (1 John 2:4)

Consequently, the Lord immediately adds: “As the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for My sheep.” (John 10:15) Clearly He means that laying down His life for His sheep gives evidence of His knowledge of the Father and the Father’s knowledge of Him. In other words, by the love with which He dies for His sheep, He shows how greatly He loves His Father.

Again, He says: “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them; they follow Me, and I give them eternal life.” (John 10:27-28) Shortly before this He had declared: “If anyone enters the sheepfold through Me, he shall be saved; he shall go freely in and out and shall find good pasture.” (John 10:9) He will enter into a life of faith; from faith he will go out to vision, from belief to contemplation, and will graze in the good pastures of everlasting life.

So our Lord’s sheep will finally reach their grazing ground, where all who follow Him in simplicity of heart will feed on the green pastures of eternity. These pastures are the spiritual joys of Heaven. There the elect look upon the face of God with unclouded vision and feast at the banquet of life for ever more.

Beloved, let us set out for these pastures where we shall keep joyful festival with so many of our fellow citizens. May the thought of their happiness urge us on! Let us stir up our hearts, rekindle our faith, and long eagerly for what Heaven has in store for us. To love thus is to be already on our way.  

No matter what obstacles we encounter, we must not allow them to turn us aside from the joy of that heavenly feast. Anyone who is determined to reach his destination is not deterred by the roughness of the road that leads to it. Nor must we allow the charm of success to seduce us, or we shall be like a foolish traveler who is so distracted by the pleasant meadows through which he is passing that he forgets where he is going. 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul:

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;

Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. – Psalm 23, KJV

Dominus regit me. Psalmus David

Dominus regit me, et nihil mihi deerit :

in loco pascuae ibi me collocavit.

Super aquam refectionis educavit me, animam meam convertit.

Deduxit me super semitas justitiae, propter Nomen Suum.

Nam, etsi ambulavero in medio umbrae mortis, non timebo mala, quoniam Tu mecum es.

Virga Tua, et baculus Tuus, ipsa me consolata sunt.

Parasti in conspectu meo mensam, adversus eos qui tribulant me;

impinguasti in oleo caput meum; et calix meus inebrians quam praeclarus est!

Et misericordia Tua subsequetur me omnibus diebus vitae meae;

 et ut inhabitem in domo Domini, in longitudinem dierum.

– Psalmus 22, Latin Vulgate

The Lord Ruleth Me. God’s spiritual benefits to faithful souls. A psalm for David.

The Lord ruleth me [1] and I shall want nothing.

He hath set me in a place of pasture.

He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment:

He hath converted my soul.

He hath led me on the paths of justice, for His own Name’s sake.

For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for Thou art with me.

 Thy rod and Thy staff, they have comforted me.

Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me.

Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!

And Thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life.

And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days.

[1] “Ruleth me”: In Hebrew, Is my shepherd, viz., to feed, guide, and govern me.

– Psalm 22 Douay Rheims Catholic Bible + Challoner notes
