UNION CITY - Finding food this holiday season might be a struggle for some families. With the country still in the midst of economic turmoil and an increasing number of people unemployed, food pantries, now more than ever, are an invaluable resource. However, due to tough financial times, donations to food pantries and soup kitchens are on the decline while the demand is rising.
The Emergency Food and Nutrition Network (EFNN) a unit of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark, coordinates and supports a network of food pantries, donor churches, schools and community groups by providing training, support, client advocacy and emergency food supplies to 75 food banks throughout Bergen, Hudson, Essex and Union counties. Based in East Orange, EFFN oversees the collection and distribution of food while providing services to those who are poor, low income, homeless or facing an emergency or health crisis.
The Feast of All Saints (Nov. 1) and the Feast of All Souls (Nov. 2) have evolved in the life of the Church independently of paganism and Halloween. However, elements of pagan practices were perhaps “baptized” by some cultures or attached themselves to the celebration of All Saints and All Souls.
The exact origins of the celebration of the Feast of All Saints are uncertain, although, after the legalization of Christianity in 313, a common commemoration of saints, especially the martyrs, appeared in various areas throughout the Church. In the East, the city of Edessa celebrated this feast on May 13; the Syrians, on the Friday after Easter; and the city of Antioch, on the first Sunday after Pentecost. Both Saint Ephrem (died 373) and Saint John Chrysostom (died 407) attest to this feast day in their preaching. In the West, a commemoration for all the saints also was celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost.
The primary reason for establishing a common feast day was because of the desire to honor the great number of martyrs, especially during the persecution of Emperor Diocletion (284-305). There were not enough days of the year for a feast day for each martyr and many of them died in groups. A common feast day for all saints therefore seemed most appropriate.
LODI and RUTHERFORD—“Family health is at the center of all our nursing education programs,” Dr. Muriel Shore, Felician College’s dean of nursing, said. “Like the rest of the country, New Jersey is bracing for healthcare reform initiatives that will provide healthcare access to all.” Nursing, like other health professions, is suffering from a critical national shortage, according to Shore. As an example, she pointed out that last year New Jersey hospitals provided care to 2.7 million uninsured patients seeking health services. Nurses typically work on the front lines of delivering family healthcare services, so the looming shortage represents a dilemma as well as an opportunity.
Catholic Concerns Focus on Access Rights
The Catholic Church has been dedicated to the healing and healthcare ministry since the days of Jesus. In the United States, one out of every six patients is treated in a Catholic facility. Catholic healthcare is based on the principle that every person is created in the image and likeness of God and has an inalienable dignity. Catholic teaching states that life-from conception until natural death-is sacred and should be protected.
