STATEMENT from CARDINAL TOBIN, ARCHBISHOP of NEWARK
Cardinal Joseph W Tobin, CSsR’s statement on the death of George Floyd and the national protests.
EDWARD (NED) CARR, Saint Ann Hoboken
“Future Catholic awaits initiation after pandemic disrupts plans”
Edward (Ned) Carr is one of the many Catholics missing the community of their parish during the coronavirus pandemic, others are still waiting to become part of that community. He was expecting to be fully initiated into the Church during the Easter Vigil along with about 350 other catechumens throughout the Archdiocese of Newark (RCAN). However, the suspension of public Masses put that plan temporarily on hold.
“I was disappointed, but I don’t think there was really any choice,” Carr said. “I think this is just another challenge in the journey that we’re all going through together. When we come out of this crisis, it’s going to be that much better.”
Carr explained that his future sister- and brother-in-law introduced him to the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) at Saint Ann Catholic Church in Hoboken.
“I’m getting married this October. For my future wife, I thought it would be a nice thing to do to join the Catholic Church,” he said.

FIVE REASONS WE TURN TO MARY
IN TIMES of CRISIS
By Cardinal Joseph W Tobin CSsR
Archbishop of Newark
‘…Throughout the ages, Christians have turned to Mary
in times of war, pestilence and famine.
In troubled times like these, she is a sure refuge, a source of comfort and hope.
We should turn to Mary in both good times and troubled times.
As Mother of Perpetual Help, she is always ready to assist us,
always there for us, constantly prepared to seek her
Son’s guidance and support for all her children.
Especially in times of grave danger,
such as the current pandemic,
Mary offers hope, healing and comfort to all
who are in need of her maternal care.”
As Cardinal Tobin reflects on our current crisis
and the serious challenges it presents to individuals, families, communities
and nations in all regions of the world, there are five major reasons
(among many more) why we should turn to
Mary our mother for her intercession and help.

PRAY for OUR PRIESTS
Jesus instituted the Priesthood at the Last Supper.
Let’s pray today, Holy Thursday, and everyday for our priests,
their protection and for an increase in vocations:
A PRAYER FOR PRIESTS
O Jesus, eternal Priest,
keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart,
where none may touch them.
Keep unstained their anointed hands,
which daily touch Your Sacred Body.
Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with your Precious Blood.
Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.
Let Your holy love surround them and
shield them from the world’s contagion.
Bless their labors with abundant fruit and
may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation
here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.
