21st Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

 

Isaiah 22: 19-23; Romans 11:33-36; Matthew 16:13-20. In today’s first reading, the master of the palace is told he will be replaced. In his Letter to the Romans, Saint Paul exhorts the Romans to give glory to God forever. In the Gospel today, Jesus tells Peter that he is chosen as the rock upon which the Church will be built.

 


Domenico 21A Del tempo Ordinario

Ogni comunità umana, per la sua vita ordinate, richiede la presenza e l’azione di una legittima autorità, al servizio di tutti. Gli uomini sono figli del medesimo Padre che sta nei cieli, che ha creato esseri socievoli, che si realizzano in una serie continua di relazioni. A chi accetta di far parte della Chiesa, Gesù ha dato l’opportunità di sentirsi capito, compreso, amato e guidato.


From the Pastor's Computer 

At the beginning of the Eucharist, after the Introduction and Penitential Rite, the priest says, “Let us pray.”  Then he pauses to allow everybody to add their motivations for attending, for praying together.  It might be for someone who is sick or dying; it might be for strength to overcome personal struggle; it might be for peace in the world, in our city, in our families.

Writing things down helps to clarify our thoughts and our intentions.  That’s why a book of prayers and intentions are at the back of the church.  It reminds us that we are here not just for ourselves but for others dear to us in Christ Jesus.  At times during the year we bring up this book of intentions in procession to the altar at the pause right before the opening prayer.  If you noticed, the opening prayer is now called the “Collect.”
It’s called the “Collect,” because it gathers (collects) all the reasons why we pray.  The 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time gives a good example of this: “Grant your people to love what you command and to desire what you promise, that, amid the uncertainties of this world, our hearts may be fixed on that place where true gladness is found.”

The gospel reading with Jesus and Peter and the disciples in the region of Caesarea-Philippi gives us an opportunity to evaluate why we are here, together, worshipping, listening to God’s Word, praying for the world, sharing Eucharist, and becoming the Body of Christ.  Like Peter and the other disciples, we are here because we believe in Jesus as Messiah and Son of the living God.

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Prayer and assistance for the Christians in Iraq: All the United States Bishops have asked Catholics to pray today for peace and the safety of the Christians in Iraq. Here is the prayer of Patriarch Louis Rafael Sako, the Chaldean Catholic Patriarch of Iraq:

Lord,
The plight of our country
is deep and the suffering of Christians
is severe and frightening.
Therefore, we ask you Lord
to spare our lives, and to grant us patience,
and courage to continue our witness of Christian values
with trust and hope.
Lord, peace is the foundation of life;
Grant us the peace and stability that will enable us
to live with each other without fear and anxiety,
and with dignity and joy.
 
Glory be to you forever.

To add to the horror, the Christian Post reports: "At least 500 Christian women were reportedly abducted from Mosul and marked to be sold as sex slaves by ISIS militants who stretched their dominance over Christians in Iraq further last week when they overran Qaraqosh, the nation's largest Christian city where believers had been flocking to after being chased out of Mosul.

"Elements of ISIS kidnapped women from the Yezidis and Christian as Sabaya (war booty slaves), and subjected them to be sold," said a spokesman for the Red Crescent, Mohammad Khuzai."

If you’d like to help, the Knights of Columbus have set up a fund where they will match your donations to help the people of Iraq. Visit www.kofc.org/Iraq. You can also contribute to Catholic Relief Services's Iraq efforts, here.

From the Catechism: What does "You shall not have strange Gods before me" mean? Is esotericism compatible with the Christian faith?

"You shall not have strange Gods before me." What does that mean? This commandment forbids us: to adore other gods and pagan deities or to worship an earthly idol or to devote oneself entirely to some earthly good (money, influence, success, beauty, youth, and so on) to be superstitious, which means to adhere to esoteric, magic, or occult or New Age practices or to get involved with fortune telling or spiritualism, instead of believing in God's power, providence, and blessings to provoke God by word or deed to commit a sacrilege to acquire spiritual power through corruption and to desecrate what is holy through trafficking (simony).

Is esotericism as found, for example in New Age beliefs, compatible with the Christian faith? No. Esotericism ignores the reality of God. God is a personal Being; he is love and the origin of life, not some cold cosmic energy. Man was willed and created by God, but man himself is not divine; rather, he is a creature that is wounded by sin, threatened by death, and in need of redemption. Whereas most proponents of esotericism assume that man can redeem himself, Christians believe that only Jesus Christ and God's grace redeem them. Nor are nature and the cosmos God (pantheism). Rather, the Creator, even though he loves us immensely, is infinitely greater and unlike anything he has created.

Many people today practice yoga for health reasons, enroll in a meditation course so as to become more calm and collected, or attend dance workshops so as to experience their bodies in a new way. These techniques are not always harmless. Often they are vehicles for doctrines that are foreign to Christianity. No reasonable person should hold an irrational world view, in which people can tap magical powers or harness mysterious spirits and the "initiated" have a secret knowledge that is withheld from the "ignorant". In ancient Israel, the surrounding peoples' beliefs in gods and spirits were exposed as false. God alone is Lord; there is no god besides him. Nor is there any (magical) technique by which one can capture or charm "the divine", force one's wishes on the universe, or redeem oneself. Much about these esoteric beliefs and practices is superstition or occultism. (YOUCAT questions 355-356)

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.
