23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

Wisdom 9:13-18b; Philemon 9-10, 12-17; Luke 14:25-33. The author of the first reading acknowledges the limitations of human wisdom and our dependency on God’s will in our lives. Paul helps Philemon realize the wisdom of God in personal relationships. Jesus helps us to see the only way to be a disciple of his is to wholeheartedly give our lives to him sharing in his mission, joy and sufferings.

 


 

 Domenica 23A Del Tempo Ordinario

 

I nostri comportamenti sono spessocausati dalla tirannia degli istinti e daldesiderio di spraffazione. Abbiamo bisogno della sapienza che domandiamo a Dio nella preghiera. San Paolo nel delizioso biglietto all’amico Filemone comincia la rivoluzione delle coscienze che poterà alle grandi scelte sociali.

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

“If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brother and sisters and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.” Shocking words from Jesus in today’s gospel! But what does it mean, really? This passage is a good example of Semitic hyperbole. It’s a Semitic idiom expressing preference for one over another. If you prefer a thing or a person over anything or everybody, you have said to “love” the one and “hate” the other. You don’t really “hate” members of your own family, but you love God and Jesus even more. You still have to love your father and mother; we are commanded to do that.

This Sunday we celebrate religious life of the Salesians of Don Bosco who live and work here at Saints Peter and Paul. In our Salesian community there are eight Salesians, all of whom took the vow of poverty, chastity, and obedience many, many years ago. The record holder in our community is Fr. Paul Maniscalco who was first professed on October 24, 1934 (79 years). Fr. Austin Conterno was first professed in 1938 on September 8 (75 years). He’s being honored today after the 1:00 p.m. Mass. Frs. Armand Oliveri and Mario Rosso were professed 73 years ago. Fr. Harold Danielson was professed 57 years ago on September 8. Fr. John Itzaina was professed 50 years ago on August 16, 1963, the birthday of St. John Bosco, as was Br. Joseph Lockwood (51 years) and Fr. Robert Stein (46 years).

God’s graces have made these significant milestones possible, along with their faithfulness and longevity of life. Pray that all of us may continue to show good example to all of you in living the Christian life that we all started with the sacrament of Baptism. However, we’re not going to last forever. Any number of you is called to take our places and continue the mission of St. John Bosco to the young and the poor.

-Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

URGENT! Oppose SB 131! Here is an important message from our Catholic Bishops, who have joined mnay other institutions (Stanford University, USC, etc) in opposing California Senate Bill 131:

SENATE BILL 131, WHICH IS ON THE BRINK OF PASSAGE IN THE STATE LEGISLATURE, ALTERS THE RULES FOR FILING SEXUAL ABUSE LAWSUITS IN CALIFORNIA IN A MANNER WHICH IS PURPOSELY UNFAIR TO CATHOLIC SCHOOLS, PARISHES AND SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCIES.

1. SB131 lets lawyers sue private schools, the Catholic Church, the YMCA and other non-profit service organizations for claims where the statue of limitations may have expired 30, 40 or even 50 years ago. But the vast majority of victims are left out because public schools and agencies cannot be sued for such claims.

2. SB131 even protects the abuser from being sued in many cases.

3. SB 131 creates two classes of victims and two classes of justice

4. SB 131 would be the third time that past statute of limitations will have been changed to allow lawsuits against the Church. In 2003 victims of abuse whose claims had otherwise expired were able to sue private, but not public, institutions.

The Catholic Church for many years erred grievously in its handling of the sexual abuse of minors. The Church stands willing to support legislation that treats all employers equally in their responsibilities toward past victims of abuse. But we cannot stand by while the state imposes crushing new financial burdens that imperil our inner city schools, neediest parishes and social services for the poor while exempting public employers from the same level of responsibility.

Please add you voice to those opposing Senate Bill 131. Go to www.cacatholic.org and Click "Take Action" to write to your Assembly Member.


Choose Life! "Today … our country seems to worship false gods. We’ve created false gods of “tolerance” and “equality” and “choice.” Instead of worshipping the Lord, we’ve found ways to worship pleasure and vanity—we’ve found ways to worship ourselves. And, like the people of Israel did in Elijah’s time, we’re suffering the effects. Worship of choice leads to abortion and contraception, and the Health and Human Services contraceptive mandate, which threatens our freedom of religion. Worship of money leads to poverty. Worship of “equality” leads to a fundamental rejection of marriage and family. We’re worshipping false gods, and we’re in trouble. … But, like Elijah, the Lord calls us to pray. And to pray in a special way for our country. If we give ourselves to quiet, humble prayer, like Elijah, God’s glory and mercy will be revealed.” –Most Rev. Samuel Aquila, Archbishop of Denver, “America needs our prayers and our sacrifice,” June 19, 2013


The “Year of Faith” Our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, declared 2012-2013 to be the year of faith. This year began on 11 October 2012, the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Ecumenical Vatican Council. To find resources that can help us in living our faith, visit our "Year of faith" page, and also the Vatican's English language "Year of Faith" page.

If you would like to suggest an event to help our parish during the Year of Faith, please call the parish office, or email gibbons@salesiansspp.org

Here are some Year of Faith events at St. Mary's Cathedral:

The Philosophia perennis discussion group at the Cathedral meets twice monthly, (second and fourth Friday) from 7:30PM to 10PM in the Msgr. Bowe Room. New participants welcome. For more info: reynaldo.miranda@gmail.com.

Eucharistic Holy Hour for Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty: The US Catholic Bishops are implementing a five-part strategy to address life, marriage and religious liberty concerns. One pillar of the strategy is a monthly Eucharistic holy hour in Cathedrals and parishes. The holy hour for life, marriage and Religious Liberty, led by our new Archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, will be at St. Mary’s Cathedral, from 2:30-3:30PM, on the last Sunday of each month.

And this is cool! Read the Catechism in a year! The “Year of Faith” also commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the publishing of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Pope Benedict has encouraged us to study and reflect on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Well, here's an easy way to do it! Go to www.flocknote.com/catechism. Enter your email address and - starting October 11, 2012 - you'll start getting a little bit of the Catechism emailed to you every morning. Read that little bit every day and you'll read the whole catechism in a year!

For further information please contact the pastor of Star of the Sea, Fr. Mark G. Mazza, at 415-751-0450, ext. 16.


Choose Life! “Marriage needs to be strengthened, not redefined. Cohabitation, divorce, and contraception all erode marriage’s meaning as a public, total, lifelong, and fruitful communion of persons between husband and wife. The latest challenge to marriage, the proposal that sexual difference doesn’t matter, removes the very basis of marriage’s meaning as a one-flesh communion, open to children, making the definition of marriage in law (and thereby culture) open to limitless variation and ultimately meaningless.” –United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “Marriage: Unique for a Reason. One Man, One Woman, For Life.”

Pray for the Defense of Marriage and Supreme Court Justice: The USCCB's bulletin insert asking us to pray for the defense of marriage can be downloaded here.


More Choose Life: “Federal law had been generous in protecting the rights of individuals and institutions to act according to their religious beliefs and moral convictions. But political forces are now injecting themselves into the lives of Catholics and Church organizations, sub-stituting their own secular ideology for the Church’s beliefs.

Some say the Church should leave politics alone and concentrate on teaching the faith and serving the needy. But what if the State says the Church may not follow her teachings, even in her own institutions? What if the State limits the Church’s ability to serve the needy? What if it says a Catholic nurse has no right to her livelihood because she will not help perform abortions? What if the Church cannot act on her teaching that marriage is a union of one man and one woman?” -United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Bulletin Insert on Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.

USA Today had a very good interview with His Excellency earlier this year.

“Becoming Towers of Strength” Project & Slideshow: It has cost $2.5 million for our tower reinforcement and restoration. In order to cover the cost, the parish had to take out a loan of $1.8 million. Given the dangerous condition of the towers, we had to move immediately to take care of the problems even though we did not have sufficient funds. By the end of this week every parishioner should have received a brochure in the mail describing how you can help. Please visit

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola have helped many to fulfill their desire to grow in knowledge and love of Jesus and so to follow him in greater freedom. Ignatius planned that the complete Exercises (sometimes offered as a 30-day silent retreat) also be offered as a retreat in everyday life, extended over six months or more. In following this form, the retreatant meets with an individual director weekly and prays an hour and a half daily. Doing the Exercises entails a serious commitment of both time and energy and is appropriate for those already cultivating a generous life of prayer and in regular spiritual direction. If you have an interest in doing the complete Spiritual Exercises in everyday life, our staff would be happy to help you to discern the Spirit’s call and will recommend a director when that is timely. Please contact Fr. Tom Carroll (tcarroll@jrclosaltos.org) at The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos for more information.



Marriage Matters to Kids! Proposition 8 forced us to confront important questions, that retain their importance even though the election is over.

What is the meaning of Marriage?
Do Children have a fundamental right to a Mother and a Father?
Do Mothers matter? Do Fathers matter?
Does natural marriage benefit society?
If so, what are the dangers of redefining marriage?
What about equality, and the dignity of the homosexual person?

Watch the video below, and listen to Catholic bishops and priests, (including a charming episode with SSPP’s own Fr. Armand Oliveri!) marriage counselors, lawyers, and people just like you, describe what marriage means and why we are called to protect it. Visit www.MarriageMattersToKids.org

Struggling with Same-Sex Attraction? You are NOT alone and the Church has not abandoned you! Visit the COURAGE website. "COURAGE" is an apostolate of the Church that ministers to those struggling against this particular temptation. They have been endorsed by the Pontifical Council for the Family and our beloved John Paul II said of this ministry, "COURAGE is doing the work of God!"

Struggling with Pornography Addiction? You also are not alone! Pornographic websites are by far the largest segment of the web.

A new Catholic apostolate, the Serenellians (www.pornnomore.com), is trying to help those caught in the grips of pornography addiction. The Serenellians get their name from Alessandro Serenelli, who killed St. Maria Goretti in a fit of lust and later repented.

“If a man so seemingly wicked, decadent and corrupt as Alessandro Serenelli can receive the fullness of conversion and salvation from Almighty God, then so can each and every like soul caught up in the snares of this insidious evil.”

You can visit their website by clicking on the logo to the left, and there is a good story about them on California Catholic Daily.
