Welcome to St. Anthony Parish

Week of September 26th

Brothers and Sisters,

I’ve been in constant contact with Msgr. Chiodo. He wanted me to relay to you his profound thanks for all the support cards and the prayers that are being offered for him. Please keep him in your prayers. On a personal note, thank you for all the support you have given me. It’s been a very stressful period here in the parish, and I know it’s shown at times.

The readings this weekend warn about envy – one of the seven deadly sins. Envy happens when we want what someone else has and we don’t want them to have it. This can obviously take the form of greed when it comes to money, but it can also apply to the spiritual life. We see in the readings people preaching or ministering in the name of Christ who weren’t part of the central group but were nevertheless given power by the Holy Spirit to do the work of God. Those close to either Moses or Christ wanted to keep the spiritual gift to themselves, but in both cases the people were told it was good that the grace was abundant. God makes his grace abundant, but we so often limit it to ourselves or those we determine worthy in some respect. This is a spiritual danger and is one reason why we have lost credibility in our society – we become exclusive to our own peril.

St. Vincent de Paul, whose feast day is on Monday, was a great example against this exclusivity. His work throughout his life sought both the reform of the clergy to greater learning and humility, as well as care of the poor. Today, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, named in his honor, works especially with the poor in our local area. I want to thank our parish chapter for their hard work, assure them of my prayers on their feast day, and encourage everyone to do some good by participating in our parish chapter and donating used items to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store on 6th Ave. or on Army Post Road.

In Christ,
Fr. Dolan
