Re: Pershing Field Pool
Home away from home
Home away from home


Well first thing in the morning they usually have lane lines in for the entire pool since it is peak lap swimming.

I think in the morning during the summer only members are allowed on weekends so it is not a madhouse.

Not to sound like a broken record but the problem with the pool is that it is grossly overheated and kept at between 84 and 88 degrees (it should be 78 to 82). I have been complaining about this since before the flood. I used to get some response but now it seems that Gerry is in control and the heat is set for the comfort of little children having lessons and old people doing water aerobics.

The heater gets turned off in the summer- however, as of last week it was still on.

Btw, you know that Johnston Ave has lap swimming and is perfect in the morning.s

Re: No Parking on Pacific Ave!?!?!

Bodhipoo-

Not hysterical at all. I was responding to the sign which in plain English said no parking either side night or day for all week. That would obviously have created reason for hysteria as it would be hard to find parking on this side streets.

The PSEG guys were there this morning. They were very pleasant and informative. According to them- the signs are a mistake. There will be no parking during the daytime, but night time parking will remain.

The project may take several weeks.

There are signs that say no parking all up and down Pacific Avenue from 9:00 am today through Friday because of work to be done by PSE&G. I have never heard of parking being banned night and day for a week. Where will we put our cars?

Re: New Residents..Stop Calling Police on Bars & Silencing Church Bells
Home away from home
Home away from home


Not too long ago, there were at least twelve churches downtown with real bells. And these bells rang the hours all night long and also, often, rang at each liturgy (at least twice a day) and at the consecration (twice each Mass), tolled at funerals and pealed at weddings.

Thanks to modernist priests, there are hardly any church bells downtown anyway. Right now, I think Holy Rosary on Sixth between Monmouth and Brunswick is the only downtown church that rings bells- and as someone noted they are electronic. I was in the parish at the time, the electronic bells were purchased and complained loudly, but not loud enough. The actual bells are still there and one can immediately tell the difference- sort of like discerning between butter and margarine. The bells were purchased probably out of a combination of laziness (even if the real bells had been electrified so that they would ring without a bell ringer, it still requires maintenance, etc), a soft corruption that favors certain vendors, and a certain disdain for tradition.

SS Peter and Paul Orthodox Church, originally a Greek Catholic Church, has lovely bells that are rung for liturgical purposes (not the hours) every great feast.

Bells of yore include:

St. Lucy's silenced when the church closed around 1988;
OLC, not sure when but have only rare heard its bells.
St. Boniface. I have fond memory of my son ringing the bell in the late 1990s. The Church is now condos. Reportedly the bells are still in the tower.
St. Peters. The original church was taken down in the 1960s and the Jesuits replaced the oldest edifice with a cinderblock monstrosity without bells.
St. Brigit's never seemed to ring its bells. Now that it is closed as of six months ago, they will never ring again.
St. Mary's, for such a beautiful church never seemed to have real bells. There is an electronic system that is infrequently used.
St. Michael's never got around to building the two towers that the architect, Keeley, called for. There may be bells in the stub of a tower- but I don't recall them being rung.
St. Anthony's has a tremendous belfry and the biggest bell downtown. The parish in the process of reinforcing the towers so that the bells can be rung.
Our Lady of Chestowja [sp?]. I think they have some small bells. I don't recall any regular use.
Grace Van Vorst. This was founded as a high Anglo Catholic Anglican parish and must have had bells. I have never heard them, however. The church was gutted in the 1960s so the bells were probably thrown out then.
Methodist Church on Mercer. Not sure. Don't recall ever hearing them.

In Europe, even further along in the de-Christianization process, bells still ring a lot. It can take a little getting used to but after a few nights, one is fine. In its heyday, Jersey City church bells probably out rang even Rome or Constantinople.

Re: Whitlock Cordage Interrupted?

Yes, we live in a capitalist society and all studies show that subsidized housing (and rent control) just create problems, e.g. suppresses building new units, creates an unhealthy alliance between the government that doles out the units the recipients, the recipients hide their assets and wealth to qualify than often commodify the subsidized unit by subletting it legally or illegally. You know, there was virtually no rent control and no subsidize housing prior to World War II. That means the introduction of there things went hand in hand with the deterioration of American Cities. False Correlation? I don't think so, even though, of course, it was just one of a series of things.

Also, there is also way too much subsidized stuff in Lafayette. Enough already. Some of the subsidized people take care of their houses and yards- too many don't.

CapN John:

Well, thanks. I always kind of like the NY Post headline writers. That being said, I did back off almost immediately, e.g. following my post with an apology as it was just two people shot up and still clinging to life and not dead.

Personally, I'm entirely indifferent to where Fulup lives. I do wonder though, sometimes about neighborhood leadership in Lafayette and its focus or lack of same.

Most of Lafayette is in the West District so reporting incidents involves going to the 7th Street downtown police station, not the one on Communipau up the hill. I think the boundary is Garfield, though not exactly sure. It seems to me that West of Garfield become Bergen Hill etc.

There has also been a rash of car break ins in the neighborhood. (I saw the results of one last week and heard of two others). This too is a new experience since that problem had been unknown. In addition, the Dollar Store on Pacific where the old Post Office had been generates constant problematic groups (multiple double parked cars with blaring music up to 11 pm).

Thanks for the links.

I guess the drug markets move around town to evade detection. I had thought the park (Ercell Webb) has been much quieter the last few years (there used to be constant activity in the gazebo).

I confess that I have been fearing that the general sudden disfavor of "broken windows policing" would lead to a deterioration of things. Not sure what the JCPD is doing though in his platform the mayor had promised to "escalate broken window" strategies. http://stevenfulop.com/sites/default/ ... op_public_safety_plan.pdf

Actually, I just re-read it and it says shootings....which implies that both victims survived. So that's a very important thing. Am I now re-reading it correctly.

Also, the Fulop headline may not be fair. But the administration wants to take credit for the sun rising so bad news can't be always blamed on someone else.

There are weird blips and one hopes it is just that.

Is this general news. I had not heard about it but got an email from the neighborhood group. I've been in Lafayette since 2006 and do not ever remember two shootings so close together.

....sadly, there have been two shootings in the last few weeks in our neighborhood. One was on Pacific in the west district past the light rail tracks resulting in a fatality, and one was last night near Pacific and Lafayette shortly before midnight, sending someone with three gunshot wounds to the hospital. If you have any information regarding the latest incident, you can call ANONYMOUSLY 201.547.JAIL ... you can leave a message and do not have to identify yourself.

and this from the inimitable Pat O'Boyle.

Blessing of the Easter Food

On Saturday night following the Easter Vigil Mass there will be a special Paschal convivium in the basement of St. Anthony's to celebrate the Resurrection of Our Most Blessed Lord and the occasion of probably the first Traditional Easter Vigil Mass to be celebrated in Hudson County since the changes of Vatican II. Everyone is invited to bring their favorite Easter goodies or beverage of choice to share on this special occasion. Immediately following Mass Father will be blessing Easter Baskets and foods according to the Paschal blessings found in the traditional Roman Ritual, especially Easter breads, cheeses, sausages, lamb, butter, and eggs. All foods to be blessed should be placed in a basket and brought to the basement of St. Anthony's before the Easter Vigil Mass. There will be one set table for the baskets to be laid upon. Food and drink for the convivium should be placed on the long tables that regularly hold our usual Sunday morning convivium refreshments.

Please consider partaking in this ancient custom of Easter and in celebrating with us this most glorious of nights at convivium.

Benedict XVI

Dear brothers and sisters!

Introduction

Holy Week, which for us Christians is the most important week of the year, offers us the opportunity to be immersed in the central events of Redemption, to relive the Paschal Mystery, the great mystery of the faith. Beginning tomorrow afternoon, with the Mass "In Coena Domini," the solemn liturgical rites will help us to meditate in a more lively manner on the Passion, Death and Resurrection of the Lord in the days of the Holy Paschal Triduum, fulcrum of the entire liturgical year. May divine grace open our hearts to comprehend the inestimable gift that salvation is, obtained for us by Christ's sacrifice.

We find this immense gift wonderfully narrated in a famous hymn contained in the Letter to the Philippians (cf. 2:6-11), on which we meditated several times in Lent. The Apostle reviews, both in an essential and effective manner, the whole mystery of the history of salvation referring to Adam's pride who, not being God, wanted to be like God. And he contrasts this pride of the first man, which all of us feel a bit in our being, with the humility of the true Son of God who, becoming man, did not hesitate to take upon himself all the weaknesses of the human being, except sin, and pushed himself to the profundity of death. This descent to the last profundity of the Passion and Death is then followed by his exaltation, the true glory, the glory of the love that went all the way to the end. And that is why it is right -- as Paul says -- that "at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!" (2:10-11). With these words, St. Paul refers to a prophecy of Isaiah where God says: I am the Lord, to me every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth (cf. Isaiah 45: 23). This -- says Paul -- is also true for Jesus Christ. He really is, in his humility, in the true greatness of his love, the Lord of the world and before him every knee truly bows.

How marvelous, and at the same time amazing, is this mystery! We can never meditate this reality sufficiently. Jesus, though being God, did not want to make of his divine prerogatives an exclusive possession; he did not want to use his being God, his glorious dignity and power, as an instrument of triumph and sign of distance from us. On the contrary, "he emptied himself" assuming our miserable and weak human condition -- in this regard, Paul uses a quite meaningful Greek verb to indicate the "kenosis", this descent of Jesus. The divine form (morphe) is hidden in Christ under the human form, namely, under our reality marked by suffering, poverty, human limitations and death. The radical and true sharing of our nature, a sharing in everything except sin, leads him to that frontier that is the sign of our finiteness -- death. But all this was not the fruit of a dark mechanism or a blind fatality: It was instead his free choice, by his generous adherence to the salvific plan of the Father. And the death which he went out to meet -- adds Paul -- was that of the cross, the most humiliating and degrading that one can imagine. The Lord of the universe did all this out of love for us: out of love he willed to "empty himself" and make himself our brother; out of love he shared our condition, that of every man and every woman. In this connection, Theodoret of Cyrus, a great witness of the Eastern tradition, writes: "Being God and God by nature and having equality with God, he did not retain this as something great, as do those who have received some honor beyond their merits, but concealing his merits, he chose the most profound humility and took the form of a human being" (Commentary on the Letter to the Philippians, 2:6-7).

HOLY THURSDAY
As prelude to the Paschal Triduum, which begins with the thought-provoking afternoon rites of Holy Thursday, is the solemn Chrism Mass, which the bishop celebrates in the morning with his presbytery, and in the course of which at the same time the priestly promises are renewed, made on the day of ordination. It is a gesture of great value, an occasion all the more propitious in which the priests confirm their fidelity to Christ who chose them as his ministers. Moreover, this priestly meeting assumes a particular meaning, because it is almost a preparation to the Priestly Year, which I have proclaimed on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the death of the holy Cur? of Ars and which will begin next June 19. Blessed also in the Chrism Mass will be the oil of the sick and of catechumens, and the chrism will be consecrated. These are rites that signify symbolically the fullness of Christ's priesthood and the ecclesial communion that must animate Christian people, gathered for the Eucharistic sacrifice and vivified in the unity of the gift of the Holy Spirit.

In the afternoon Mass, called "In Coena Domini," the Church commemorates the institution of the Eucharist, the ministerial priesthood and the new commandment of charity, left by Jesus to his disciples. St. Paul gives one of the earliest testimonies of all that happened in the Cenacle, vigil of the Lord's Passion. "The Lord Jesus," he wrote, at the beginning of the 50's years, based on a text he received from the Lord's own realm, "on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, 'This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.' In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me'" (1 Corinthians 11:23-25). Words charged with mystery, which manifest clearly the will of Christ: Under the species of bread and wine he renders himself present in his body given and with his bloodshed. It is the sacrifice of the new and definitive covenant offered to all, without distinction of race or culture. And from this sacramental rite, which he entrusts to the Church as supreme proof of his love, Jesus appointed his disciples as ministers, and those who followed them in the course of the centuries. Holy Thursday is, therefore, a renewed invitation to render thanks to God for the supreme gift of the Eucharist, to be received with devotion and to be adored with lively faith. Because of this, the Church encourages, after the celebration of Holy Mass, watching in the presence of the Most Holy Sacrament, recalling the sad hour that Jesus passed in solitude and prayer in Gethsemane, before being arrested and then being condemned to death.

GOOD FRIDAY,
And so we come to Good Friday, day of the Passion and crucifixion of the Lord. Every year, placing ourselves in silence before Jesus nailed to the wood of the cross, we realize how full of love were the words he pronounced on the eve, in the course of the Last Supper. "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many" (Mark 14:24). Jesus willed to offer his life in sacrifice for the remission of humanity's sins. Just as before the Eucharist, so before the Passion and Death of Jesus on the cross the mystery is unfathomable to reason. We are placed before something that humanly might seem absurd: a God who not only is made man, with all man's needs, not only suffers to save man, burdening himself with all the tragedy of humanity, but dies for man.

Christ's death recalls the accumulation of sorrows and evils that beset humanity of all times: the crushing weight of our dying, the hatred and violence that again today bloody the earth. The Lord's Passion continues in the suffering of men. As Blaise Pascal correctly writes, "Jesus will be in agony until the end of the world; one must not sleep during this time" (Pens?es, 553). If Good Friday is a day full of sadness, and hence at the same time, all the more propitious a day to reawaken our faith, to strengthen our hope and courage so that each one of us will carry his cross with humility, trust and abandonment in God, certain of his support and victory. The liturgy of this day sings: "O Crux, ave, spes unica" (Hail, O cross, our only hope)."

HOLY SATURDAY AND EASTER VIGIL
This hope is nourished in the great silence of Holy Saturday, awaiting the resurrection of Jesus. On this day the Churches are stripped and no particular liturgical rites are provided. The Church watches in prayer like Mary, and together with Mary, sharing the same feelings of sorrow and trust in God. Justly recommended is to preserve throughout the day a prayerful climate, favorable to meditation and reconciliation; the faithful are encouraged to approach the sacrament of penance, to be able to participate truly renewed in the Easter celebrations.

The recollection and silence of Holy Saturday lead us at night to the solemn Easter Vigil, "mother of all vigils," when the singing of the joy of the resurrection of Christ will erupt in all the churches and communities. Proclaimed once again will be the victory of light over darkness, of life over death, and the Church will rejoice in the encounter with her Lord. We will thus enter into the climate of the Easter of Resurrection.

Dear brothers and sisters, let us dispose ourselves to live the Holy Triduum intensely, to participate ever more profoundly in the mystery of Christ. We are accompanied on this journey by the Holy Virgin, who in silence followed her son Jesus to Calvary, taking part with great sorrow in his sacrifice, thus cooperating with the mystery of the Redemption and becoming Mother of all believers (cf. John 19:25-27). Together with her we will enter the Cenacle, we will stay at the foot of the Cross, we will watch next to the dead Christ, awaiting with hope the dawn of the radiant day of the Resurrection. In this perspective, I now express to all of you the most cordial wishes for a happy and holy Easter, together with your families, parishes and communities.

EPIPHANY CELEBRATION TOMORROW, 7:00 PM, St. Anthony's
Home away from home
Home away from home


Tomorrow is Twelfth Night- the last day of the traditional Christmas feast.

The Traditional Latin Mass will be offered at 7:00 pm in the evening. Before Mass, the Three Kings of Orient will be on the steps of the church distributing gifts (candy!) to children. The camels have decided to stay in the barn given the blistering cold predicted.

Thereafter, Mass will be offered. The Ordinary will be sung by the Cantantes in Cordibus Choir (a reprise of Mozart's Sparrow Mass from Christmas Eve).

St. Anthony's is at the corner of Sixth Street and Monmouth in downtown Jersey City .


The Many in the West observe a twelve-day festival, starting on December 25, and ending on January 6, known as Christmastide or the Twelve Days of Christmas. Some Christian cultures, especially those of Latin America and some in Europe, extend the season to as many as forty days, ending on Candlemas (February 2).

On the Feast of the Epiphany in some parts of central Europe the priest, wearing white vestments, blesses Epiphany water, frankincense, gold, and chalk. The chalk is used to write the initials of the three magi over the doors of churches and homes. The letters stand for the initials of the Magi (traditionally named Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar), and also the phrase Christus mansionem benedicat, which translates as "may Christ bless the house".

According to ancient custom, the priest announced the date of Easter on the feast of Epiphany. This tradition dated from a time when calendars were not readily available, and the church needed to publicize the date of Easter, since many celebrations of the liturgical year depend on it.[50] The proclamation may be sung or proclaimed at the ambo by a deacon, cantor, or reader either after the reading of the Gospel or after the postcommunion prayer.[50]

The Roman Missal thus provides a formula with appropriate chant (in the tone of the Exsultet) for proclaiming on Epiphany, wherever it is customary to do so, the dates in the calendar for the celebration of Ash Wednesday, Easter Sunday, Ascension of Jesus Christ, Pentecost, the Body and Blood of Christ, and the First Sunday of Advent that will mark the following liturgical year.

Christmas Beauty: Traditional Latin Mass with Mozart?s Missa Brevis in C Major setting in Jersey City, New Jersey





JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY- Mozart?s Missa Brevis in C Major, K220 ?Spatzenmesse? will be performed on Christmas Eve at the 9:00 PM Traditional Latin High Mass in downtown Jersey City?s historic St. Anthony?s Church located at Monmouth St. between 6th and 7th. Simone Ferraresi, the noted composer, pianist and conductor will be directing the Cantantes in Cordibus chorus and orchestra. A strong drive behind St. Anthony's performance of this classical sacred masterpiece is the many young parishioners who have recently joined the growing parish in a quickly gentrifyng city.


The Spatzenmesse or Sparrow Mass was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1775 or 1776 in Salzburg. This Mass had its debut on Easter Sunday 1776 at the Cathedral of Salzburg.


A concert of Seasonal Sacred Music will begin at 8:30 and will include selections from Handel?s Messiah as well selections from the Renaissance and Romantic Periods. The program also includes the ancient Gregorian Chants sung by the Men?s Schola. Selections from Monteverdi?s Vespers and Vivaldi?s baroque masterpiece, Gloria will also be performed.


The director, Simone Ferraresi, studied at the Conservatory of Music in Ferrara, Italy where he earned his degree with highest honors; at the Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna he studied with world renowned pianist and musicologist Paul Badura-Skoda. Maestro Ferraresi specialized in interpretation of classical composers; at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he was awarded the Diploma of the Royal Academy of Music ? the highest examinable award given by the Royal Academy. He was also awarded three special prizes for best performance in the final recital. He is the founder and artistic director of the Ferrara International Piano Festival.


St. Anthony?s Church is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Sites. The church built in the Victorian Gothic Style is a pristine example of a church untouched by modern elements and remains a true example of Roman Catholic aesthetic rarely seen today. The church parking lot is located on 6th St. between Coles and Monmouth Street and is easily accessible from the Grove Street PATH, the Newport PATH and Light Rail stop.

What happened last night? Anybody, know.

I don't know why we need a new courthouse. I'm a lawyer and the number of cases pending in court today seem like maybe only half at best that there were twenty years ago (except for in Family Court where it has been steady or maybe increased).

Also, if you need to build, use the gigantic parking lot where the old jail was.

Hey talented neighbors!

I posted for voices several weeks back for a Christmas Eve Concert and Mass. A talented young woman from McNair responded as did her brother. At that time, a couple of people send me a PM inquiring about whether we were looking for any instrumentalists. I wanted to circle back to you and ask if you could give me a call. We are hiring a quartet but would like to fill it out with other instruments. In particular we are looking for some brass- possible to accompany the Mozart Mass but absolutely to accompany some carols and to play the Monteverdi Vespers fanfare. The concert is 8:30 PM Christmas Eve at St. Anthony's Church at 6th and Monmouth. Mass at 9:00 PM, immediately following.

Ideally, you would be donating your talents. If you need a stipend though still call please. 201 406 9960

The idea that western colonialism spawned the current violent backlash of Islamic fundamentalism has a shred of truth in it. Islam perceived itself as a wounded civilization when the West took off in the modern era. First it was a loss of prestige, then it was a loss of sovereignty. However, these traits are found in Islam from the beginning. While there were creative periods in Islamic history, these tend mostly to be when Islamic armies took over civilizations and then scholars sort of appropriated the local intelligentsia. This has been very important in the history of ideas, e.g Avincenna and Averroes brought Aristotle to Muslim Spain which then made it to Paris in the 12th Century.

Anyway, yes most of the Muslims who have immigrated are impressive people. They are here for a better life and can show a real appreciation for this society. On the other hand, there can be a surprising appropriation of victimhood and other special status programs. Also, I think the Muslim community has been very slow in condemning and distancing itself from the fundamentalists around the world. Also, it remains to be seen how assimilation goes after one or two generations.

I tend to think our society is a little sick- the West is sort of in a decline and fall mode (a la Spengler). Maybe this has monstrous results in a few immigrants or native born. All the 9/11 terrorists were highly educated, highly assimilated Muslims. How does one explain that? Even more surprising was that after 9/11, conversions to Islam increased exponentially. The converts appear to be particularly dangerous.

And yes, these terrorists are among us- whether on Kensington Avenue just down from the Learning Community School when in the 1993 bombers assembled the bomb right there- or last summer when this killing occurred in West Orange (but was nearly totally blacked out by the media).
