1 Kings 3:5, 7-12; Romans 8:28-30; Matthew 13:44-52 or 13: 44-46. In the Gospel, Jesus encourages us to sell everything in order to receive the gift of the Kingdom. Saint Paul shows us in the second reading that the Kingdom is our relationship with Jesus, whereby we are conformed to his image and made children of God. In our first reading, Solomon shows us the disposition necessary for receiving the Kingdom.

 


Domenica 17A Del Tempo Ordinario

I discepoli di Gesù hanno come regola di vita l’amore che è dono e tesoro inestimabile. Per conquistarlo occorre affrontare qualiasi difficoltà con discernimento e generosità, affinché Dio occupy sempre il primo posto nella vita.


From the Pastor's Computer 

The parables of the buried treasure and the pearl of great price remind me of the story from Celebration. A man walking alone on the beach hears a voice from above say, “Dig.”  The man looks around to make sure he is not having hallucinations, and then hears the voice again: “I said, ‘Dig.’” So, with bare hands, he digs down into the sand and finds a treasure chest buried there.  The voice from above says, “Open,” He tries the chest open and finds it full of cash.  The voice says, “To the casino.”  Fortunately there is a casino nearby.  The man carries the chest full of money into the casino and the voice says, “Roulette.”  He goes to the roulette table and the voice says, “Number 27.”  He bets everything on 27.  The croupier throws the ball and it bounces tantalizingly across the wheel, coming to a stop at number 26.  There is a moment of stunned silence, and then the voice from above says, “Damn!”

The real meaning of the parables of the buried treasure and the pearl of great price is something quite different.  The parables describe the freedom and joy of people who have caught a glimpse of the Kingdom.  Caught up in the vision of God’s love and God’s future, it’s the Christian that is able to “buy” into a kingdom that is essentially future oriented and in the present can’t be fully realized.  With the vision of the coming Kingdom, our spirituality (a distinct way of living) empowers us put everything, our lives and our possessions, our talents and our desires, into the perspective and power of God’s already-but-not-yet Kingdom (Brendan Byrne, Lifting the Burden, p. 115).

In the end, we should be betting on the coming of the Kingdom and not on number 27.  We can’t lose, can we?

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Help Christians in the Middle East: Last Wednesday, we dedicated our Eucharistic Adoration and rosary to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for world peace and solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Christians throughout the Middle East, especially Iraq, face a catastrophic situation. The image at left is the Arabic letter "non--the first letter in the word "Nazarene." It is being painted on properties owned by Christians in Mosul, so that Islamic terrorists can identify them.

We feel helpless, but some things we can do is sign the White House petition requesting President Obama to help, found here or we can contribute to Catholic Relief Services's Iraq efforts, here.

Some good news from the Middle East: Earlier this year, we, along joining Catholicss and lovers of feedom around the world, made our voices heard in the case of Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman condemned to death for refusing to renounce the true faith. Our voices were heard, and Mrs. Ibrahim was allowed to leave the Sudan. She and her family are coming to the U.S., but they made a stop at Rome on the way, where she met with good Pope Francis!

You can read the story here.

From the Catechism: The "Five Precepts of the Church" and their purpose. What are the "Five Precepts of the Church"? (1) You shall attend Mass on Sunday and holy days of obligation and abstain from work or activities that offend against the character of the day. (2) You shall receive the sacrament of Penance at least once a year. (3) You shall receive the Eucharist at least during the Easter season. (4) You shall observe the prescribed seasons of fasting and days of abstinence (Ash Wednesday and Good Friday). (5) You shall contribute to the material support of the Church.

What is the purpose of the precepts of the Church, and how binding are they? The "Five Precepts of the Church" with their minimum requirements are supposed to remind us that one cannot be a Christian without making a moral effort, without participating personally in the sacramental life of the Church, and without union with her in solidarity. They are obligatory for every Catholic Christian. (YOUCAT questions 345-346)


Choose Life! “Every child who, rather than being born, is condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ, bears the face of the Lord, who even before he was born, and then just after birth, experienced the world’s rejection. And every elderly person … even if he is ill or at the end of his days, bears the face of Christ. They cannot be discarded, as the ‘culture of waste’ suggests! They cannot be thrown away!” –Pope Francis, Address to Participants in the Meeting Organized by the International Federation of Catholic Medical Associations, Sept. 20, 2013

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.


March for Marriage 2014: Here is video from the June 18 rally in defense of marriage in Washington D.C., featuring our good Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone. Many have tried to mischaracterize His Excellency's position. Watch and decide for yourself. His segment begins at 17:45 into the video.

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.
