Isaiah 55: 6-9; Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a; Matthew 20:1-16a. The first reading exhorts us to seek the Lord while he may be found. The reading from Philippians reminds us to conduct ourselves in a way that is worthy of the Gospel of Christ. In the Gospel, Jesus tells a parable about a landowner hiring laborers to work in his vineyard. Its lesson is that the first shall be last and the last shall be first.

 


Domenico 25A Del tempo Ordinario

Gli uomini sono operai della vigna del Signore, consapevoli o no di concorrere a realizzare il progetto di Dio. La parabola degli operai, invitati a lavorare in ore diverse, insegna che ogni uomo, ogni popolo e ogni civiltà ha il proprio tempo di chiamata. Sono imoportanti la prontezza e la qualità dell’umana risposta.

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

Once upon a time, before I was pastor of Saints Peter and Paul, I was high school English teacher.  Every student hated when I took grammar and punctuation.  I used to tell them that grammar and punctuation were important, because basic grammar allowed you to navigate logically and efficiently from ideas to written English.  Knowledge of grammar guides a student into becoming a better writer with better thinking skills.  Punctuation becomes the traffic signals that help us know when to stop or slow down a thought or give it special meaning.  Am I making sense? I’ve just used two types of sentences, a declarative sentence that states a fact and an interrogative sentence that asks a question. There are two other types of sentences: an imperative sentence that both commands and challenges like “Take out the trash,” or “Keep on reading ‘From the Pastor’s Desk,’” (an example of punctuation of a quotation within a quotation) and an exclamatory sentence that evokes intensity of emotion designated by the exclamation point (!).

Today’s gospel is replete with all these four types of sentences, all jumbled and compressed at the end of the parable of the just and generous vineyard owner.   We know the story.  The reign of God is like the case of an owner of an estate who went out at dawn to hire workmen for his harvest.  Here we have declarative sentences followed by an imperative sentence.  The challenge is to accept God’s generous and forgiving mercy, regardless of our own actions.  The imperative is simple: stop comparing yourselves with others, for good works earn no reward, for all is gift.  And stop grumbling too.  Can’t we almost hear them saying “How can He make them equal to us?”? (Will this be the only time you’ve ever seen a question mark before and after a quotation mark?)

Here’s the ending: “Take your pay and go home,” an imperative sentence.  “I intend to give this man who was hired last the same pay as you,” a statement, so a declarative sentence.  “I am free to do as I please with my money, am I not?” An interrogative sentence, is it not?  And finally, we have an exclamatory sentence (without the exclamation point) to end it all: “Thus the last shall be first and the first shall be last.”

For your information, the Gospels were originally written in Greek, which had no punctuation whatsoever.  Translators added both punctuation, chapter and verse, many, many years later!

What’s happening at Sts. Peter and Paul School: School is back in full force. Our students are very excited and eager to learn new things. On August 26th we held our “Back to School” night. Parents for Grades 1-5 had the opportunity to visit their children’s classroom and meet the teachers. Parents for the Junior High students (Grades 6-8) participated in a panel meeting where all the teachers spoke about the different subjects and expectations. This is going to be a very exciting year for Sts. Peter and Paul School. Save the date for the following SSPP events: October 11th and 12th the Columbus Day Bazaar; February 21st the Faculty/Staff Fashion Show fundraiser; March 27th the Eighth Grade Spring Play; and May 9th our dance show. More information will come out as the dates get closer. Last, but not least, our 8th Graders will begin shadowing at the different high schools and filling out their high school applications. Once again, Dana Wayne, the 8th Grade homeroom teacher will be holding the High School Placement Test prep class so that the students will be ready for their entrance exam in January. These are just some of the key events happening this year. As you can see, we have a very busy year ahead of us. We are still accepting applications for grades K-8.


Choose Life! “By Week 10, the child’s nails and fingerprints are developing, and his or her vital organs are functioning. The child starts to move and kick, even though the mother may not feel the child’s movement.

By week 16, the child’s nervous system is developing rapidly and designating areas in the brain for smell, taste, sight, hearing, and touch. The child may be sucking his or her thumb at this stage of development. ”–USCCB Word of Life.


More Choose Life! “The federal court rightly declared that Louisiana’s marriage laws ‘serve a central state interest of linking children to an intact family formed by their biological parents’... The federal court affirmed that the voters of Louisiana who overwhelmingly chose to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman in their state constitution made a rational decision by embracing the definition of marriage ‘that has endured in history for thousands of years, and prevails in a majority of states today.’...Those who are arguing to redefine marriage based upon the desires and interests of adults were presented by this court with obvious questions raised by the logical consequences of their arguments to which they were unable to give an answer, including: ‘Must marriage be limited to only two people?’ Indeed, all who work to promote and defend marriage should be encouraged by this federal court decision.”- Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, Chairman USCCB Subcommittee for the promotion and Defense of Marriage, September 4, 2014.


From the Catechism:   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). Learn more: catechsim of the Catholic Church 2041-2043.

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.
