27th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

 

Isaiah 5:1-7; Philippians 4:6-9; Matthew 21:33-43. In today’s first reading, we hear the owner of the vineyard who decided to take away its wall, give it to grazing, and make it a ruin. Isaiah likens this vineyard to the house of Israel (cf. Ps 80). Saint Paul reminds the Philippians to seek what is true, honorable, just and pure. Jesus tells the parable of the landowner who sends his servants to collect the produce from the tenant farmers.

 


Domenico 27A Del Tempo Ordinario

Gli auti che Dio ha messo in atto per il suo popolo si alungano nei secoli e si distendono in una scala molto vasta, ma anche la delusione ha la sua parte e I castighi una funzione. Consola le certezza che la preghiera nel nome di Gesù sarà ascoltata. Che non avvenga che meritiamo la punizione inflitta ai vignaioli per la loro infedeltà.

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

The exciting month of October is upon us.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and also the month of the rosary with October 7, the feast of the Holy Rosary.  The memorial of Pope St. John XXIII is celebrated on October 11, and the memorial of Pope St. John Paul II is on October 22.

This Sunday, besides being the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we celebrate La Madonna del Lume Eucharist at 11:30 with Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, followed by a procession to Fisherman’s Wharf and the blessing of the fishing fleet.

Next Sunday is Columbus Day Weekend with a special Columbus Day Eucharist at 10:30, the Italian Heritage Parade, and our own Saints Peter and Paul Columbus Day Bazaar on October 11-12.

The Sundays of October have importance in themselves.  World Mission Sunday is on October 19, the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time.  The last Sunday of October is called World Youth Day.

Justice issues in Jesus’ times and our own historical period take center issue in the October readings: the justice of contract laws and reciprocity, human life issues, just taxes, and protection of the weak (immigration?).

In today’s first reading the Prophet Isaiah speaks of the ruin of a vineyard even though the owner did everything necessary for production.  This vineyard with its puny wild grapes represents the people of Israel who, despite God’s favor, produced the ravages of war and acts of injustice.

Are we more productive than the people of Israel?  What a mess in war-torn Syria and Iraq!  Will it ever end?  Only when there is justice tempered by mercy and care for the young, the sick, and the elderly.

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Choose Life! “[T]he courage and grace shown by those women who choose life—in the face of fear, uncertainty, parental or partner intimidation, seemingly insurmountable odds—make them today's heroes. They are joined by the many who counsel, support and nurture them both before and after the birth of their child. Such self-giving love…is powerfully transformative of mother, of child, of families, of cultures.” — 2013-2014 Respect Life Program (USCCB).

If you are interested in helping Mothers in crisis pregnancies, considering volunteering with The Gabriel Project (call the parish office: 421-0809) or the Alpha Pregnancy Center.


From the Catechism: What prompts a person to pray? “We pray because we are full of an infinite longing and God has created us men for himself: ‘Our hearts are restless until they rest in you’ (St. Augustine). But we pray also because we need to; Mother Teresa says, ‘Because I cannot rely on myself, I rely on him, twenty-four hours a day.’ Often we forget God, run away from him and hide. Whether we avoid thinking about God or deny him he is always there for us. He seeks us before we seek him; he yearns for us, he calls us. You speak with your conscience and suddenly notice that you are speaking with God. You feel lonely, have no one to talk with, and then sense that God is always available to talk. You are in danger and experience that a cry for help is answered by God. Praying is as human as breathing, eating, and loving. Praying purifies. Praying makes it possible to resist temptations. Praying strengthens us in our weakness. Praying removes fear, increases energy, and gives a second wind. Praying makes one happy.” (YOUCAT questions 469-470)


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.

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.

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.
