Petitions of Prayers
We pray that those who suffer loneliness of
any kind would experience your closeness,
Lord & encounter the support of their
friends & family (Pope Francis universal
prayer petition for November 2014).
We pray for those who mentor men &
women to seminary and religious life. May
young seminarian & religious find wise &
well-uniformed mentors (Pope Francis missionary prayer petition for November 2014).
We pray for all souls departed that they may
share in God’s promise of eternal life.
We pray for the church that we may be inflamed that Christ, our life may also appear
to us & share in his glory as all the Saints
have done.
We pray that we gracefully share our talents
with those in need especially the sick.
We pray that we restore all things to Jesus
Christ, King of the universe.
We pray that we thank Jesus Christ for all
he has done, especially during this time of
October went out with a bang this year. Over the last week or so, a large number of our young people received the Sacrament of Confirmation at the hands of Bishop Nelson Perez, 10 of our Catechists in the Religious Education Program
received awards for their years of service to our children and Sam and Anne Crocco received the Diocesan Saint Agnes
Medal from Bishop Murphy for their many years of service to the parish of Saint Hugh of Lincoln. What a week!!!
November begins with some important events as well. Today begins our Special Novena of Masses for those of our
loved ones who have died, a time to remember grandparents, parents, children, friends and others who have returned to
the Lord. All those who are enrolled in the Novena will be prayed for each day for nine days. You can still enroll your
loved ones by placing their names on the envelopes you received and putting it in the basket. Extra envelopes are at the
doors. This Tuesday is Election Day and as good citizens it is important to vote according to our gospel values. All pastors in the diocese received this letter from the Bishop. I share it with you because I think it is important:
“Dear Father,
The October issue of The Long Island Catholic magazine has a column I wrote urging all of us to vote in this
midterm election next month. I write to you now to ask that you make my message yours through your bulletins and
from your pulpits these next two weeks prior to the election.
Would you please stress the importance of these elections for the Catholic Church’s ability to continue to profess
her faith freely in a secular society and her capacity to continue to fulfill her apostolic mission especially in the areas of
health care, education and ministry to the poor and immigrants.
It would be good to remind people that the state elections, especially for the State Senate, are even more crucial
for us as Church. At the state level, we face the danger of an attempt to make abortion on demand part of the State Constitution through point ten of the “Women’s’ Equality Act”. The bishops of New York are completely and unambiguously opposed to this additional protection of abortion on demand the Governor and others are promoting. The Education Tax Credit Bill was the victim last year of political maneuvering despite being given public support by many senators and state assemblypersons here and across the state. The annual threat of the “Markey Bill” that seeks to penalize
only the Catholic Church for past crimes of child sex abuse must also be recognized for what it is. Those who support
that should be opposed by those of us who know how effectively and permanently the Church has remedied that horrific
scourge of the last decade. Catholic Charities’ ability to care for the migrants, the poor and the elderly also run risks at
both the state and federal levels where different kinds of ideologies either question our role in society or withhold funds
needed for us to continue to witness Christ’s love for the poor and the vulnerable.
In short, urge everyone to vote and urge them just as forcefully to know the positions of the candidates so that
their choices might be guided by issues, not personalities, and by the common good and not by partisan politics.
Fraternally yours in Christ,
Bishop William Murphy”
Please get out and vote this week!

On Tuesday, October 28th, eight of our catechists were among those recognized by Bishop Brennan at St. Agnes Cathedral for their
outstanding volunteer service in the Catechetical ministry. The St. Pius X. medal (for 10 years of service) was awarded to
Christine Eaches, Bridget Groeger, Veronica Melgar and Solange Rich. Sister Mary Nolan was presented the Elizabeth Ann Seton
award (at least 20 years of service). For at least 25 years of service, Rita O’Malley Murphy received Pope John XXIII award and the
Bishop John R. McGann award (for at least 30 years of service) was given to Linda Connors and Diane Mahon.

CITIZEN RESPONSIBILITY – This year, NY voters choose a governor, members of House of Representatives, other state & local officials, & judges in our courts. As citizens & Catholics we
have a precious right & moral responsibility to help form our nation's conscience - the same
right & responsibility - which every citizens has. If we do not speak for ourselves & our values, no one will speak for us. If we do not speak those values, who will voice them?
Several years ago, in Living the Gospel of Life: A Challenge to American Catholics, the Bishops
of the U.S. set the issue before us in un-mistakably clear terms:
"American Catholics have long sought to assimilate into U.S. cultural life...We have been
changed by our culture too much, & we have not changed it enough"
"Every voice matters...Every vote counts. Every act of responsible citizenship is an exercise
of significant power. We must exercise this power..."
TOUGH WORDS! When election officials are glad that a "high" voter turnout is perhaps one-third
or two-fifths of eligible voters, something is wrong. Find out who the candidates are & what
their stance is on pressing issues which confront us such as: protection of all human life & religious freedom. Take the time to cast your ballot on Tuesday, November 4th.
Right to Life
Your spiritually adopted baby has been quite active over the past month. Already your baby
is 10,000 times bigger than at conception. Your baby has developed the foundation of his/
her brains, spinal cord, and nervous system by the 20th day. His/her heart began to beat on
the 21st day. His/her heart is pumping blood through its own circulatory system and the
blood type can be different from his/her mother's. Your baby is most vulnerable during the
next month of being aborted. Pray that the Lord of Life might move the heart of his/her
mother to give him/her the most precious gift of all -- THE GIFT OF LIFE.
Dear Jesus, child of Mary, I love you and thank you for your unconditional love. I plead
with you to save the life of the unborn child whom I have spiritually adopted and whose life
is threatened by abortion. May this child be allowed to grow in wisdom, age and strength in
Your presence and in the sight of all.
