31st Sunday in Ordinary Time


Wisdom 11:22-12:2; 2 Thessalonians 1:11-2:2; Luke 19:1-10. The Book of Wisdom underscores God’s incredible love for all his creation of which we are part. Paul tells the Thessalonians that they are to be strong in their faith and not be led astray. In the Gospel, we hear the amazing story about Zacchaeus, a sinful tax collector, who turns to Jesus for salvation.


Domenica 32A Del Tempo Ordinario

Attraverso la bontá, la condiscendenza e il perdono Gesù invita Zacchèo a convertirsi. Lo stupore per la generosità di Gesù, induce Zacchèo a cambiare vita e a fare l’esperienza della gioiosa accoglienza e della pace ritrovata, che vuole far conoscere a tutti, organizzando una festa, alla quale vengono invitati tutti i colleghi di lavoro.




From the Pastor's Computer 

This Sunday’s story of Zacchaeus, the chief tax collector and Jesus is found only in the gospel of Luke.  Tax collectors were despised by the general population for extortion-like taxes, tolls, and tariffs and collaborating with the Roman occupiers.  Outcasts they were; but even more so for a chief tax collector!  The chief tax collector would negotiate with the Romans for rights to collect taxes, divide the area into manageable collection zones and franchise these tax zones to other collectors.  They profited from charging exorbitant added-on taxes.

Zacchaeus was morally and physically a small man.  He wanted to see Jesus walking through Jericho but the crowds prevented him. He couldn’t see over the taller crowd and he couldn’t push his way in front of onlookers.  So, he did something that was both humiliating and salvific.  He ran ahead of Jesus and climbed a tree.  Both actions exposed him to ridicule, for it was undignified for a man to run, as much as it was undignified to climb a tree in front of everybody.

His humiliation and ridicule were his salvation.  Jesus saw him so uncomfortable in the sycamore tree that he called him down and invited himself to Zacchaeus’ home for dinner.  When the people saw such a thing and complained, Jesus declared that “Today salvation has come to this house because this man too is a descendant of Abraham.  For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”

“The good news Luke declares is the proclamation that God is doing a great thing today!  This is the time of deliverance and redemption.  This is the time to open our eyes and see what God is doing all around us.  When even one person is offered forgiveness, hears a word of affirmation, clings to hope that life can be different, or resolves to live by a new set of values in the future, there the kingdom of God is at work.” (NIB, Vol. IX, p. 360)

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

From the Catechism: On Prayer. What are the characteristics of Christian prayer?Christian prayer is prayer in the attitude of faith, hope, and charity. It is persevering and resigns itself to the will of God.

Someone who prays as a Christian steps at that moment out of himself and enters into an attitude of trusting faith in the one God and Lord; at the same time he places all his hope in Godthat HE will hear, understand, accept, and perfect him. St. John Bosco once said, ‘To know the will of God, three things are required: prayer, waiting, taking counsel.’ Finally, Christian prayer is always an expression of love, which comes from Christ's love and seeks the divine love. (YOUCAT question 493).” For more: Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 2656-2658.

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
