Followup: Warning Against Upcoming Fortune Teller Event

12-10-2017Weekly ReflectionRev. Kenneth Brighenti

Dear Parishioners,

I am writing to you as a follow up to the November 26th bulletin letter regarding the fortune teller/medium at Shop Rite of Clinton. I met with Mr. Joseph Colalillo this past week to discuss this matter and was informed that it was not Mr. Colalillo's intentions to go against the Church's teachings or violate the First Commandment, "I am the Lord Your God, you shall have not any strange gods before me." For scheduling purposes, December 8th, The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, worked best in the stores schedule.

As Catholics, we should pray for the conversion of all mediums and avoid attending these type of events. Let us pray through the intercession of Our Lady, who constantly shows us the way back to her Son, that we may remain steadfast in our faith and strong witness to Christ our Lord.

  • Yours in Christ,
  • Father Brighenti
