ark provides us with much information about the ministry of Jesus. Jesus, the Good Shepherd, had sent the Apostles out into the world to spread the good news of the Messiah to all the people. When they returned they reported to Jesus all that had happened; how they drove out many demons, and their power to cure the sick. Crowds of people followed Jesus wherever he went. He was moved with pity for them, and he satisfied their spiritual hunger by teaching them many things, and showing himself as the faithful shepherd of Gods people. Are we satisfying our spiritual hunger by attending the Holy Mass and listening carefully to the good news of the Gospel?

2 EDITORS NOTE News and Views in the MakingBy Dominick F. Di Certo




any parishioners are surprised when they are told that the Chapel of the Holy Child is our Churchthe Body of Christ. Everyday we should pray very hard that our beloved Church of the Holy Rosary (upper Church) will be repaired and returned to the people of God. Meanwhile, we must believe, sincerely, that the beautiful Chapel of the Holy Child is our Church. It is only through the true Church that the Sacraments are distributed, and it is during the liturgy of the Mass that the miracle of the Eucharist occursthe moment when bread and wine are changed into the true Body and Blood of Christ. The Chapel of the Holy Child is a perfect example of how the good Lord provides in time of need. God has provided a beautiful

Temple of the Lord to worship Him, a refuge to take part in the Liturgy of the Mass, and the infinitely adorable gift to feed usthe life-giving food of his own Son, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.




eremiah was a great prophet of the Lord. He lived during a time when the people of Israel turned away from God and began to worship idols and false gods. Jeremiah warned the kings of Israel, who were leading the people astray, that great destruction would come upon them. Jeremiah also suffered greatly for proclaiming the truth to the people, but his strong faith in God gave him the strength and courage to continue his mission. His great prophecies foretold that God would send them a Good Shepherd who would lead the people of Israel back to the Lord; a prophecy that brought great hope to the people. This prophecy was fulfilled with the coming of Jesus, the Messiah. Be strong in your faith and Gods good shepherd, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will lead us all safely to his heavenly home.


t. Pauls letter to the Ephesians deals with making Gods plan of salvation known throughout the world-wide church. In his letter, Paul describes the church as One, Holy, Catholic (universal), and Apostolic, established by Christ for all mankind. At the time of Pauls ministry, there was a great division between the Jewish Christians and the Gentile (non-Jewish) Christians. The Gentiles objected to the excessive number of restrictions in the Jewish faith that did not apply to the Gentiles practice of the faith. Paul stresses the oneness of the Jewish and Gentile Christians in the body of Christ, the Church. They were united through the reconciling peace of Christ which was made possible through the shedding of his blood on the cross.

News / Noticias Today, July 19, the third Sunday of the month, we celebrate the Summer Sinulog Festival in honor of the Sto. Nio of Cebu, Patron of the Augustinian Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus of the Philippines, to which our friars ministering to the people of God of our beloved Church of the Holy Rosary belong by their religious profession. The feast of the Sto. Nio of Cebu, as per the decree of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, is the third Sunday of January. Aside from observing the regular feast, we started to celebrate last year the Summer Sinulog Festival on the third Sunday of July. This year, Msgr. Thomas A. Modugno, Vicar of East Manhattan, will again be the presider of the 12:30 p.m. multilingual Parish Mass. Our Augustinian friars and Sto. Nio devotees guest priests will concelebrate. Right after the Mass, Msgr. Modugno will enthrone the replica of the image of the Sto. Nio de Cebu at the Chapel of the Holy Child/La Capilla del Sto. Nio, which, due to the inactive state of our church, provisionally serves as our church. After the enthronement, luncheon will be served at the lower church and the Sinulog religious-cultural presentation will commence. Just like last year, Nena Matela and the members of the Parish Line Dance Ministry she founded organized this years Summer Sinulog Festival. Cardinals Appeal Update: Goal: $4,620.00; Pledge: $4,540.00; Paid: $4,350.00; Number of Gifts: 32; Average Gift: $141.88. The Bicentennial Campaign Office continues to receive payments for pledges. Please fulfill your pledges. For assistance or questions, please contact the Bicentennial Campaign Office at (212) 371.1011 ext. 2008 or email at [email protected] Rescue of the Innocent and Prayer of Protection, the 40X40 oil on canvas paintings by Milagros Palmieri commemorating the 9/11 Twin Tower international tragedy, now both hang on the lower church. Between them hangs Resurrection, another work by the same artist which used to hang inside our beloved Church of the Holy Rosary. Our lower church has also the icons of Martin de Porres and Saint Anne with daughter Mary, both donated by Malou Cadiz of St. Martin de Porres Healing Ministry. The column of his Eminence Edward Cardinal Egan, Triumphant Failure, has been framed and now hangs at the entrance of the lower church, right under the image of St. Michael the Archangel Vanquishing the Devil, a donation from Mexicans of Guerrero origin. A cursory look at the weekly collections at Masses can tell us that they are not enough to support a Parish. We urge all our parishioners and friends to be aware of their duty to keep our beloved Church of the Holy Rosary afloat. Generosity is part and parcel of our liturgy. Every time you give any amount for the church ask for a receipt. Church donations are tax refundable. .

La pac ien cia

/ Por Carmen Torres


a paciencia es lo contrario a perder el control sobre s mismo. La paciencia significa espera. La persona que no cree en la existencia de nada, fuera de este mundo ser impaciente, porque slo cree disponer de tiempo limitado. Mientras ms materialista sea la persona, tanto ms ser su apresura miento. Claro est que nadie nace paciente, es algo que se aprende. Ejemplo: La vista es un don de la naturaleza, pero hay que aprender a usarla. Cuando nuestro Seor Jesucristo devolvi la vista a los ciegos, uno de ellos le dijo que para l los hombres eran como rboles caminando. Por lo que ellos tenan que aprender a ver. Lo mismo sucede con el dominio y el control sobre nosotros mismos, pues la virtud de la paciencia se desarrolla slo mediante la resistencia y el control. Ahora el problema est en que si el hombre no podra20enfrentar en cualquier dificultad. La victoria por la vida no es otra cosa que el triunfo de nuestras almas y esto se legra solamente ejecutando la paciencia en los momentos difciles. El hombre reaccionar mejor cuando conserva la calma. La paciencia es el gran remedio contra el temor. Saber razonar cuando todos los dems se desmoronan, no solamente salva su propia persona sino tambin la del prjimo.
