28th Sunday in Ordinary Time


2 Kings 5:14-17; 2 Timothy 2:8-13; Luke 17:11-19. Naaman, the leper, after he is cleansed by Elisha asks for dirt—the soil of Israel, so that he can worship and thank God on holy ground wherever he goes. A Samaritan returns to thank the Holy One of Israel for his cleansing. Nine others who were cleansed did not return after showing themselves to the priests.



Domenica 28A Del Tempo Ordinario

Siamo tentati di appropriarci della Parola di Dio. La Parola di Dio è libertà e gratuità e viene rivolta ad ogni uomo. Non possiamp “sequestrare” la grazia di Dio. Dio non fa preferenze di persona, e suscita in ogni uomo disponibile al suo richiamo un movimento di salvezza che investe tutta la persona. È la vita intera, nella sua dimensione visibile e nascosta che viene trasformata dalla Parola di vita.





From the Pastor's Computer 

Joe saved Bill’s life by pulling from the car wreck just before the gas tank exploded.  The day after the heroic deed, he gets a letter telling him that his house is going to be foreclosed and he needed to come up with a big bundle of money to save his house.  At his wit’s end, he thought of Bill, pretty well-to-do.  So Joe calls Bill and asks if he could borrow a big bundle of money to save his house.  Bill is hesitant, “I don’t really feel comfortable lending that kind of money.”  Joe is desperate and says, “Come on, Bill!  Remember, I just saved your life yesterday,”  “Sure,” Bill says, “But what have you done for me lately?”

In real life, examples of gratitude may be best described in a negative way.  In today’s gospel Jesus cures ten lepers; yet, only one returns to glorify God and thank Jesus.  Like Bill who was saved by Joe, where was the gratitude necessarily owed to Jesus by the other nine?

Gratitude may be the true measure of one’s character and depth of spiritual life.  This is certainly true when we connect gratitude with faith.  Jesus says to the Samaritan cured of leprosy, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”  To reinforce his thought, Jesus uses the same word for “being cured” and “being saved.”
We can be thankful to God and others in the many chances we have as we work, play, and pray.  Saying grace before meals, thanking a helping hand, and thanking parents for the sacrifices they made when we were young, keep us away from a Billy-like attitude, “What have you done for me lately.”

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Help us stop SB 131 (Beall)! Current law treats victims of child sexual abuse the same, regardless of where the abuse took place and regardless of whether the abuser worked for a public school, a private school or a religious organization. A controversial bill now on the Governor's desk will change that. Under SB 131, victims who were abused by employees or volunteers of private or non-profit organizations would be able to sue those organizations even if the statute of limitations was over. Victims who may have been abused in public schools or by government workers, on the other hand, get nothing. As the bill is currently drafted, not only are they prevented from suing the school, they can’t even sue the actual perpetrator who committed the abuse.

The California Catholic Conference opposes SB 131, and opposes discrimination against victims and private employers. SB 131 is also opposed by a growing coalition of that includes private schools and universities, the California YMCA/YWCA, USA Swim, USA Gymnastics, other religious groups and the La Raza Roundtable de California.

Choose Life! October is Respect Life month. “No accidents, these lives of ours, created by a loving God with magnificent precision. The care and intricacy with which each human life is created — or as Isaiah and the psalmist tell it, knitted together in our mothers’ wombs — are God’s loving work. These basic spiritual truths — these basic human truths — bring the tragedy of abortion into sharp relief. To snuff out any life desired, created, loved and given a purpose by God is an unspeakable tragedy.” –Archbishop J. Peter Sartain, Archbishop of Seattle, “We are to be ‘people of life, people for life,’” The Catholic Northwest Progress, January 24, 2013

From the Catechism: On Prayer. How did Jesus pray as he was facing his death?  “When face to face with death, Jesus experienced the utmost depths of human fear. Yet he found the strength even in that hour to trust his heavenly Father: ‘Abba, Father, all things are possible to you; remove this chalice from me; yet not what I will, but what you will [be done]’ (Mk 14:36).

Times of need teach us to pray.’ Almost everyone experiences that in his life. How did Jesus pray when he was threatened by death? What guided him in those hours was his absolute willingness to entrust himself to the love and care of his Father. Yet Jesus recited the most unfathomable prayer of all, which he took from the Jewish prayers for the dying: ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ (Mk 15:34, citing Ps 22:1). All the despair, all the laments, all the cries of mankind in all times, and yearning for God's helping hand are contained in this word of the Crucified. With the words, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit’ (Lk 23:46), he breathed forth his spirit. In them we hear his boundless trust in his Father, whose power knows the way to conquer death. Thus Jesus’ prayer in the midst of dying already anticipates the Easter victory of his Resurrection.” (YOUCAT question 476). To learn more: Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 2605-2606.

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.

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

to see a slideshow depicting the dangerous situation and the repairs made. You will find it eye-opening. There is also a link on that page for online donations in support of the project. “Becoming Towers of Strength” is the duty of this generation of Saints Peter and Paul parishioners, and it is really a project we can be proud of!

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 ( 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
