DRAGON KIM’S USA WORKS WITH THE FOOD PANTRY OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER AND SAINT MARGARET MARY TO FIGHT HUNGER ON STATEN ISLAND.

[The Rev. Adaly Rosado (center) accepting the food drive with Dragon Master Robert Kim (far left), Sir Robbie Kim (far right), Sir Sal Gjecbritaj (2nd from right) and other instructors and students of Dragon Kim’s Karate USA.]

Dragon Kim’s Karate USA had begun a food collection in the summer of this year.  They needed a place to donate the food.  They asked one of their students, the Rev. Adaly Rosado, where the donation could be made.  Father Rosado quickly responded, “we have a food pantry.”  He is the Parochial Vicar at the Church of Saint Christopher and Saint Margaret Mary, which covers the Grant City and Midland Beach neighborhoods of Staten Island.  The church has a food pantry which helps feed the hungry in all of Staten Island.  Since Father Rosado was both a student at the school and a priest at the church, it was decided that both organizations should unite to fight hunger on Staten Island.  Last month, the school donated approximately 200 pounds of food to the pantry.  In the future, more donations will be made.  Dragon Kim’s Karate USA has multiple locations on Staten Island and all will run food drives to help feed the hungry.

Why can we eat meat today?

Today we celebrate the Annunciation of the Lord. This is when the angel Gabriel told Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus.  Mary accepts and Our Lord came into our world.  Today in the Catholic church, it is a solemnity.  A solemnity is the highest rank of all liturgical days.  Although it is a Friday in Lent today we can eat meat.  Please see Canon 1251.  For more information please read; Yes, you can eat meat on Friday for the Annunciation (aleteia.org)

This Is, This Is, This Is my Body

The picture above is of the Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano, Italy

Today is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.  Jesus says this is my body and this is my blood.  He does not say it is similar or it represents my body and my blood.  He says this is my body and my blood.  At Mass today Jesus offers himself up again for us in an unbloody manner.  Their have been many Eucharistic miracles such as the Miracle in Lanciano, Italy which occred in 1730.  A priest doubted that the bread and wine really become the body and blood of Jesus.  The host turned into human flesh and bleed.  Upon further investigation it was discovered that the flesh was from a human heart and that the blood type was the same as on the Shourd of Turin.  As you well know the Shroud of Turin was used to cover the body of Our Lord when it was laid in the tomb.  When we are at Mass Jesus is literally present.  He literally comes to be united with us if we are in a state of grace!  We ought to have reverence at Mass.  It is God who is their waiting for us.  Remember Jesus said This Is my body and blood.

 

p.s.  it is Jesus himself through the priest who makes the bread and wine turn into his body and blood.  This is known as Transubstantiation.

Lent do over

Today is Tuesday of the fourth week of Lent.  At the beginning of Lent we all made a Lenten promise.  How are we doing with that promise?  If we are doing well then great keep it up.  If we have failed in our Lenten promise it is time to get back up and start over. 

How are we doing this Lent?  Have we gone to confession? If not we should go in order to prepare to receive Jesus this Easter!  Are we afraid of the confessional?  Do not be.  The priest can't tell anyone anything that he hears in the confessional and he probably won't remember anyway.   Has it been a long time since we've been to confession?  It doesn't matter how long it has been since our last confession.  It could be 10 years, 20 years, 50 years or 100 year since your last confession.  Do not be afraid for in the confessional you will find a merciful Jesus waiting for you.  Remember that it is Jesus through the priest in the Sacrament of Penance (also known as Confession or Reconciliation) who takes away our sins!

 

God Bless You!
