St. Thomas à Becket is a Roman Catholic community. We believe in Jesus Christ and His One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. “Faith is a flame that grows stronger the more it is shared and passed on, so that everyone may know, love and confess Jesus Christ…Sharing the experience of faith, bearing witness to the faith, proclaiming the Gospel: this is a command that the Lord entrusts to the whole Church…Where does Jesus send us?

There are no borders, no limits: he sends us to everyone. The Gospel is for everyone, not just for some…Do not be afraid to go and to bring Christ into every area of life, to the fringes of society, even to those who seem farthest away, most indifferent. The Lord seeks all, he wants everyone to feel the warmth of his mercy and his love.” – Pope Francis, World Youth Day homily (7/28/13).

Mission: Our parish is committed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As members of the Roman Catholic Church, we seek to share the love and joy of a relationship with Jesus. We hope to introduce the world to the beauty of our faith.

Saint Edith Stein was a brilliant Jewish girl from Germany. She earned a doctorate in philosophy and eventually became an atheist. After reading the life of Saint Teresa of Avila she knew that she had found the truth and must become a Catholic. She was received into the Church a few months later, in January of 1922, and then taught in a Dominican high school for several years. Twelve years after her conversion she entered the Carmelite Order at Cologne, Germany and took the name Sister Teresa Benedicta of the Cross.
During the Nazi persecution of the Jews which began in 1938 she was moved to a Carmel in Holland. Here she asked permission of her superiors "to offer [herself] to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as a sacrificial expiation fo the sake of true peace…" She and her sister Rosa, also a convert to the Catholic Faith, were taken to Auschwitz in July of 1942. In the terrifying atmosphere of the concentration camp she remained calm and prayerful and took special care of the children. Sisters Teresa and Rosa died in Auschwitz.

Friends, in today’s Gospel, Jesus rescues Peter and says: “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” When we live wrapped up around our own egos and their fears, we inhabit the narrow space of the pusilla anima (the little soul), but when we forget our awful seriousness, when we live in a risky freedom, we inhabit the infinite expanse of the magna anima (the great soul).

Holy people are those who realize that they participate in something and Someone infinitely greater than themselves. Far from crushing them, this awareness makes them great. In a hundred ways, our theological and spiritual tradition attempts to cultivate the great soul, to lure us into that wonderful conviction that it is not about us.

John’s Gospel says that in his youth, Peter labored under the illusion that he could control his life: he walked where he liked and he tied his own belt. But in his old age—the time of wisdom—he will realize that his life has been under the direction of a Power that his ego cannot begin to manipulate. In taking him where he does not want to go, this Power will introduce him to the magna anima.

A day at the beach turns into a miracle! The author of this post writes the following!

If I hadn't witnessed it for myself, I'm not sure I would believe what you're about to read . . . this is one of the most horrific situations I've experienced.

A friend and I planned a day at the beach yesterday. After driving to Asbury Park Beach NJ; we were turned away since a very limited number of day passes can be purchased; all sold out by 9:00 AM. So we decide to go to Belmar Beach about 15 minutes away. A perfect beach day - 95 degrees, blue skies, and cool ocean water. We were there for about 2 hours; catching up, swimming, relaxing, commenting on people's adherence to the social distancing, enjoying what felt like a normal summer day.

"HELP", we hear someone call out, maybe 15 feet behind us; followed immediately by another "Help"; then like wildfire - "Help"; "Call 911"; "Lifeguards" . . . a panic begins. We both jumped up to help, while at the same time trying to figure out what is happening? We head towards a mound of sand and as we get closer, there's two young men digging frantically while standing in a hole < 3 feet deep. Then two more men jump in digging as fast as they can around a child's hand and wrist barely sticking up above the sand. As I’m about to jump in, two other guys dive in and the small hand suddenly slips deeper into the ground.

What had happened is a 10 year old boy was playing; digging a hole in the sand . . . An arms reach from his mother, father, aunt, uncle, cousins. The family is at least 150 feet back from the water. As he’s digging < 3 feet, he hits a large pocket/sink hole/quick sand, and just like that, he vanishes, swallowed by the earth.

"SHOVELS, get shovels" yell the lifeguards, who are now all in the hole digging. It's now been more than 5 minutes; and no one can can figure out where or how deep into the earth this child is. The crowd gets larger by the second, as people dig frantically in all areas next to the hole trying to tunnel into the vicinity.

"Allah, please not my son, please not my son"! It's the voice of the boy's father, running into the ocean and dropping to his knees begging God for his son's life. His mother is looking down on the lifeguards digging, screaming hysterically by the second. The police arrive to the scene with shovels, clearing the area, pushing back a crowd of now more than 100 people, while getting all the lifeguards out of the hole dug deeper and deeper. No further sign of this child. It's been over 10 minutes.

I stand completely frozen - two girls nearby kneel to pray. Daniel wishes to go because he just can’t bare seeing the image of a child pulled from the ground. It's now been over 12 minutes.

So a policeman; holding on the ankles of another policeman makes contact with the boy. "Water, get water" is heard by the police and paramedics. They found him! They carefully secure and pull him out of the ground. "He's still breathing" someone yells.

Its now just under 15 minutes, most people are either gasping, crying, hysterical, frozen, praying or silent. Finally, as the boys being carried to the ambulance, he lifts his head looking on to the crowd. When the public see's that he's conscious and responsive, everyone begins to clap and cheer loud (and louder AND LOUDER) for the boy, his family, the lifeguards, the police, the paramedics.

This was the first miracle that I've experienced. I'll never know how this child survived being submerged in sand and water for more than 15 minutes. Above ALL else, this child's life was the only thing that mattered for more the 100+ people that stood by. It comforts me, in hindsight, of the humanity, the teamwork, the prayer. It was 15 minutes without division, race, politics, religion, pandemic . . . just this precious life of a child.

Spanning continents and centuries, Our Lady’s message is clear

A golden thread running through all these Marian apparitions is her request for her children to pray, especially to pray the Rosary. As at Fatima, she begs us to pray for the conversion of sinners. She also asks that we pray for clergy and for the family.

At Quito, Mary said: “Pray constantly, implore tirelessly, … beseeching the Eucharistic Heart of my most holy Son to take pity on His ministers and to end as soon as possible these unhappy times.” And at San Nicolás, “The weapon that has the greatest influence on evil is to say the Rosary.” To fight the evil in the world, she said that there should be special devotion to the Holy Rosary and perpetual novenas, “never interrupted.”

Other common themes are the need to reform our lives, fast, and perform acts of penance. Finally, she encourages us to have faith and to trust in God no matter what and focus on what really matters, the salvation of souls.

Reasons for Hope

Our Lady’s dire predictions are conditional, and she gives reasons to hope.

As Our Lady of America, she has said: “What happens to the world depends upon those who live in it. There must be much more good than evil prevailing in order to prevent the holocaust that is so near approaching.”

At Kibeho: “Do not forget that God is more powerful than all the evil in the world.”

At San Nicolás: “Those who stay in the Lord have nothing to fear,” and, “Just as in the Calvary after the crucifixion and death came the resurrection, also the Church will resurge again by the force of love.”

...The messages and results of Our Lady of Guadalupe’s apparitions are also great reasons for hope. She appeared in a land where human sacrifice had long been and was still surreptitiously being practiced, and she left behind an image not only miraculously produced but rich in both theological truths and cultural significance. The image recalls Revelation’s “woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars” (Rev 12: 1; according to the position of the star map on her mantle, the constellation known as the “Boreal Crown” would be above her head), and at the same time has a special meaning for Aztec viewers. She blocks the sun, which played a critical role in their civilization, but does not extinguish it, for its rays still shine all around her. She stands on the moon, showing that she is greater than their moon god. Her eyes are looking down, indicating that she is not a god—as their gods were always depicted looking straight ahead. She wears a black sash indicating she is pregnant, and the cuffs on her sleeves show she is royal.

Though there had been peace for 10 years, the Aztecs were planning a rebellion shortly before the apparition, and many of them viewed Christianity as a foreign religion irrelevant to themselves. (The cruelty of such Spaniards as the governor, who had been excommunicated by the bishop for it, was counter-evangelical as well.)

But when the Aztecs heard of the miracles and saw the image—the Mother of God appearing as an Aztec to an Aztec—their hearts were changed. Her loving words also made an impact:

I am the ever-virgin, holy Mary, Mother of the true God: the life-giving Creator of all people; the Lord of what is near and far, of heaven and earth. I deeply desire that a chapel be built to me here where I can show, praise and testify to him forever. Here I will give people all my love, compassion, help, comfort and salvation. For I am truly your compassionate Mother: your Mother and Mother to all who dwell in this land … Here I will hear their cries and listen to their complaints. Here I will console them in their suffering and relieve their pain. Here I will heal them in their anguish, their affliction and distress.

Nearly nine million converted in only a decade.

These words of Our Lady of Guadalupe are for us too today, in all places and all times, for she also called herself the Mother “to all other nations and peoples who love me and call and entreat me. I am the Mother of all who seek me and place their trust in me.”

Friends, the Gospel for today is the account of the persistent Canaanite woman. Like all of the “hard” Gospel stories, it packs a spiritual punch.
God’s salvific purposes are for the whole world. Israel was chosen so that they would be a vehicle for the salvation of all. Therefore, Jesus’ primary mission is indeed to his fellow Jews, but throughout the Gospels, there are hints that his ministry has a wider purpose.

When Jesus entered a pagan territory, a Canaanite woman called out, “Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon.” She represents the longing of the world for the justice, the mercy, and the love of God. She senses correctly where this is to be found. She embodies the hunger of lost humanity.

Jesus’ responses move from silence, to an indirect rebuke, to an outright insult. And rolling with the punches, the woman responds with faith that pleases the Lord. Is Jesus testing the woman in order that she might know just how great her faith is? That was St. Augustine’s explanation for why God sometimes says no to repeated prayer. And this is why perseverance in prayer is so strongly recommended in the great tradition.

Daily Inspiration:

“The human family on earth is the image of the Holy Family in heaven. The family passes on the plan of God from one generation to another. It transmits the love and word of God through the generations. The collapse of the family means the collapse of God’s plan in humanity. It means the breakup of the message of salvation and sanctity to humanity. Every family is a holy family because it is the image of God the Trinity. The corruption of the family means a corruption of the image of God. The family carries the torch of light and passes it from one generation to another so the world may remain lit by the light of the Lord.

The family is the rope that binds humanity together through time, binds generations through history, so that humanity may grow and increase; and if this rope which binds humanity together was broken, and humanity gets separated from its history, it would be no more than lost generations which have neither history nor identity. The family is what gives people their human identity and impresses the image of God in them. The family is what preserves the memory of humanity; humanity without family is humanity without memory. A person without memory keeps turning in place, and humanity without memory will stop in history and die...

Guard your families and keep them from the schemes of the evil one through the presence of God in them. Protect and keep them through prayer and dialog, through mutual understanding and forgiveness, through honesty and faithfulness, and most importantly, through listening. Listen to one another with your ears, eyes, hearts, mouths and the palms of your hands, and keep the roaring of the noise of the world away from your homes because it is like raging storms and violent waves; once it enters the home, it will sweep away everything and disperse everyone. Preserve the warmth of the family, because the warmth of the whole world cannot make up for it.”
