Seminarian Adam’s Corner
Each year on the anniversary of Roe V.
Wade, January 22, the seminary would
have all of the seminarians pile into
two buses and make a four hour trek
from our campus in South Orange, NJ,
all the way to Washington, D.C. This
lengthy trip is not to see any of the beautiful museums or historic
landmarks of our nation’s capital; it is to stand up for the people
who could not stand up for themselves: the unborn. As we tiredly
make our way onto the bus at 5:30 AM, the importance of our
presence is a little lost in the haze of the early morning. This
lackluster feeling does not last for long as we slowly wake up and
make our way down I-95 South.
The spirit of this day hits you as soon as the bus arrives in
Washington, D.C. People are swarming all over carrying pro-life
signs and joyfully making their pro-life message to the world
known. Disembarking from the bus, you are quickly swept up in
the incredible enthusiasm that is spreading throughout the city.
There are pro-life speakers and activists who give their
testimonies to the crowds at the National Mall and along the
route of the March.
The march down Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court is
why we come. What started as a small demonstration after the
Supreme Court’s decision in1974 has turned into the largest
pro-life event in the world. In the march, you run into thousands
of people from all different walks of life. They come not only
from the United States, but also from different parts of the
world. There are many different ages and religions represented,
from Christians to those of Jewish and Muslim traditions. It is a
great feeling to see everyone marching together to voice their
opinion for the universal right to life.
Each year, the March for Life chooses a specific topic from the
pro-life movement as its overall theme. The theme for this year’s
March is, “Every Life is a Gift,” focusing on the pregnancies that
are terminated because of prenatal screenings that diagnose an
infant with medical disabilities. We believe life is a God-given
gift that is sacred from the first moments of existence. From
conception to a natural death, every person should have the
same right to life. No life is less than or better than another
because we are all God’s children. We read about God’s love and
plan for all of us in the book of the Prophet Jeremiah, “Before I
formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I
consecrated you (Jer 1:5).” Even before we are conceived, God is
thinking of us and He has prepared a vocation or path of life for
each of us.
Many of us will not be able to make it to the March on January
22, but this is not an excuse for us to just sit back and do nothing.
We have to continue to pray and voice our concerns for those
who cannot speak up for themselves. To help with this, our
parish family will have a Holy Hour between 3 and 4 PM on
Thursday, January 22 at our Assumption site. Life is a precious
gift that we need to respect and protect.
Adam
Buses will be going from this area. If you would like
information, call Matt Simon/609-652-2896.

Dear Friends:
Please join us for National Catholic Schools
Week, our annual celebration of what
makes education at Assumption Regional
Catholic School outstanding. Starting with
Sunday Mass on January 25, we have a
whole week of activities planned to show
what our students are accomplishing and to celebrate the
community we have built to educate tomorrow’s citizens and church
leaders.
This year’s National Catholic Schools Week theme centers on
community: “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and
Service.” The theme highlights the fact that schools are not only
communities themselves; they are also part of many other
communities, including families, parishes, towns/cities and our
country.
The theme also focuses on key elements of Catholic education: faith
development, academic excellence and dedication to service. These
elements set Catholic schools apart from other educational options.
They are why families make sacrifices to provide their children with a
Catholic education.
I hope you will visit Assumption Regional Catholic School during
National Catholic Schools Week to enjoy the students’ activities and
events and learn about their faith development and community
service projects.
Please bring your friends and neighbors, particularly those who may
be considering Catholic education for their children.
I am grateful every day for the teachers, staff, board members,
parents and volunteers who make our school a success. National
Catholic Schools Week is a good time for all of us to thank them for
their dedication and service.
God bless you,
Mary Ellen Schurtz

BREVE COMENTARIO A LA LITURGIA DE HOY
ABRAN ESOS OÍDOS.
Ya hemos comenzado el tiempo ordinario en nuestras celebraciones
de fe; el color verde en los manteles y ornamentos nos indica que las
celebraciones festivas de la navidad han concluido. No se trata de un
tiempo menos importante; sino de reflexionar que en nuestra vida
"normal" se entreteje la historia de la salvación. Esta historia a la
que pertenecemos, la historia de nuestros tiempos es también
tiempo de salvación. Lo que usted hace o decide hoy en su vida tiene
decisiva importancia para su propia historia. Es importante estar
atentos a lo que sucede a nuestro entorno, escuchar detalladamente
las diferentes voces. Voces que son de Dios y que nos llaman a
construir, a luchar, a cultivar los valores del Evangelio; pero en
contraste también existen voces que ofrecen bienestar, pero que al
producirse lejos de los proyectos de Dios, resultan en infelicidad y
frustración. En la primera lectura de la liturgia de hoy encontramos a
un jovencito atento para responder a los llamados de Dios. Mañana
la sociedad estadounidense celebra a Martin Luther King, como un
hombre que responde a los llamados Dios eficientemente, al
reflexionar y luchar pacíficamente en favor de grupos minoritarios
tratados con injusticia. En Santa Inés, que celebraremos en esta
semana, encontramos a una jovencita enamorada de Dios, que
solamente para él quiere tener ojos y oídos. La Iglesia misma quiere
estar atenta a la voz de Dios, en la defensa de la vida. ¿Y los oídos de
usted para quién están abiertos?

10 Monthly Themes Bulletin Reflection
The Meaning of Human Sexuality
In order to help us prepare for the World
Meeting of Families and the visit of Pope
Francis, a catechism on family life entitled, Love
is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive, has been
prepared. Each month our parish is reflecting on
one chapter from this catechism. For previous months’ reflections,
visit: PhillyEvang.org/wmof. You can order a copy of the catechism
at www.WorldMeeting2015.org
JANUARY 2015
Chapter 3: The Meaning of Human Sexuality “Love is Our Mission”
because God created us for a reason: to love us, and for us to love
one another.
(Chapter 1). God’s covenant with Israel and the Church reveals what
God’s love is like: tender and passionate, but also steadfast and
sacrificial.
(Chapter 2).In Chapter 3, we learn that the bodily, earthly world has
spiritual significance. Tangible things sacramentals, acts of charity,
sacred art and culture, our liturgical feasts and fasts have the
capacity to reveal the glory of God. Marriage, as one of the
sacraments, reveals this to us in a special way. The bodies of the
spouses, in the complementarity of their masculinity and femininity,
have the unique role of revealing God’s nature as a communion of
lifegiving love. How can a man and a woman imitate God’s love
together? How can they live in a way that is intimate and
committed, joyful and merciful, forgiving and fertile? Through their
participation in the life of the Church, this kind of love becomes
possible. God’s love is not an audition, or a temporary experiment,
or a selfseeking negotiation. In the same way, marriage is never a
private, inward romance, but always discovers its true nature in
relation to God and his wider purposes. A sacramental marriage is
called to be a little parable of God’s love, always ordered to joy and
service. All Catholic sexual ethics flow from these ideas. In our next
chapter, we will reflect in depth on marriage, followed by the next
chapter about celibacy.–Dr.Christopher C. Roberts and Meghan
Cokeley.

visiting family for the World Meeting of Families through HomeStay.
