Thoughts For The Week
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
As you know, on May 8th I received a letter from the
Diocese informing me that Father Edmund is being transferred
from Saint Ann’s Parish to Our Lady of Fatima Parish in
Piscataway, effective on June 12th.
When Father Edmund and I discussed how we would
announce his move, we had planned to make the announcement to
you on Pentecost weekend. Unknown to us, the list of changes was
printed in the Catholic Spirit, and the word got out before we could
tell you. We are profoundly sorry that this occurred.
As I explained at the Masses last weekend, a newly ordained
priest must have at least two assignments of three years each before
becoming eligible to become a pastor. Father Edmund’s three
years here at Saint Ann’s, his first assignment as a priest, has well
prepared him for his next assignment. All of us with whom he has
interacted, have helped to bring out in him the great priestly virtues
he shows—his prayerfulness, his ability to preach well, his care for
the sick, and his happy personality. He has shared many of his
gifts with us, touching many lives---especially the children in our
school and in the sacramental programs.
His preparation for the celebration of Mass and his homilies
are outstanding and thought provoking. We will all surely miss
him. I know that I will miss a good friend--his wise counsel and
the wonderful things he has done for all of us. He knows that he is
most welcome at Saint Ann’s any time, and I have invited him to
come back often.
Even though he jokes about his short stature, his departure
from our parish will leave big shoes to be filled by the newly
ordained priest who has been assigned us. He is Father James
DiFillipps who was ordained on Saturday. He will come to us on
the 12th of June, just in time for the Festa.
I asked you to consider joining me in thanking Father
Edmund, as he celebrates his last weekend Mass with us on June
10th at 12 pm. At the end of that Mass, Father will lead our annual
Corpus Christi procession. After the procession, at 3 pm, all of
you were invited to a reception and meal in the cafeteria.
Now to this week’s Feast. As young math students, one of
the first lessons we learned was that one plus one equals two. But
mathematics in God's Kingdom is a little different than here on
earth. If you were to ask God, He would no doubt say that one plus
one equals one; or better yet, one plus one plus one equals one.
How else to explain the mystery that we celebrate today, that ours
is one God, with three distinct persons– Father, Son and Holy
Spirit?
It may chagrin math teachers everywhere, but God defies
our human logic by remaining one God. There is no separation, no
division among the Persons of the Trinity. Rather, the three
constitute a community of mutual, life-giving relationship. While
we cannot fully understand the love of the Trinity, we can see in it
a model of how we are to love others, seeking to be united in our
pursuit of what is good and holy.
As we reflect upon salvation history, we can see the great
blessings that the love of the Trinity has manifested in the lives of
God's people. What a blessing it is that God the Father so loved
humanity that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to come into
the world. As Jesus revealed to us the Father's love, and taught us
how to live as God's children, He also gave us the Holy Spirit to
be with us until the end of time.
While we acknowledge the great blessings we receive
through the Trinity, we also recognize that the Trinity presents a
powerful challenge to us. After all, the blessings we receive
through the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are not for us to
keep to ourselves. Rather, they are meant to be shared as we
endeavor to pattern our lives after the Trinity and work to build
inclusive, mutual and life-giving relationships with others. This
includes family members, relatives, friends and even those we do
not know but who are, nonetheless, our neighbors.
This challenge is presented clearly to us in today's Gospel.
Jesus commissions His Apostles to go out to all the nations and
spread the good news of salvation. As people of faith, we know
that Jesus wants all of us to take up this task of sharing the Gospel
with others. Today we receive, as it were, our marching orders to
go and make disciples of all nations, leaving no doubt that by its
very nature, our Church is missionary to the core! And the way we
fulfill our missionary mandate is by patterning our lives on the
Trinity, striving to live in communion with God and others.
When counting plates or pencils, one plus one plus one
equals three. When it comes to our lives as disciples of the Lord
Jesus, however, we must think differently. Let us never forget the
unity to which we are called, both with the Triune God and with
one another. Let us remember that in the Kingdom of God, one
plus one plus one equals one–and that One is God.
Let us continually pray for Father’s intentions, and thank
God for the gift Father Edmund has been to us. Let us thank God
that Father Edmund accepted the call to become a priest. May he
have many happy and fruitful years in ministry.
In your charity, pray for the sick and the lonely—visit them
if you can. Also, please remember to pray for all who have
wandered from the faith, and all who have died. May God always
be pleased with us!

Ministry Highlight ~ Parish Nursing Ministry
Irene Roglieri
Parish Nursing is an opportunity for nurses of the parish, as well as other health providers and volunteers, to focus on the spiritual,
emotional and physical dimensions of parishioners as they strive to achieve wellness and manage illness. We do this through education,
advocacy, support groups and home visits. All are invited to volunteer their special gifts. From time to time St. Ann Parish also
sponsors Diocesan workshops on topics dealing with various aspects of family life.
The Parish Nursing Ministry holds a Flu Shot Clinic in the fall, sponsored by the Somerset Valley Visiting Nurses Association. This
clinic is held on a weekend after Masses, making it especially easy for working people to get a flu shot.

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are
different workings but the same God who produces all of them in
everyone.” 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-6
By giving each of us different gifts, God made sure that the
Church would have the combination of talent and treasure that
was needed to do God’s work. However, what happens if one of
us does not bring our contribution to God’s altar? God’s plan is
not fulfilled. Some important work is left undone.
