18th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

 

Ecclesiastes 1:2, 2:21-23; Colossians 3:1-5, 9-11; Luke 12:13-21. The first reading from Ecclesiastes reminds us that everything good comes from God. The second reading from Colossians exhorts us to put to death the parts of you that are earthly, and focus on what is of God. In the Gospel, Jesus teaches that we are to take care to guard against greed, for our life does not consist of possessions.

 


 

 

Domenica 18A Del Tempo Ordinario

Gesù precisa il modo di arricchirsi davanti a Dio: conservando i beni e le ricchezze accumulate non per se stessi, ma usandole per le neccessità dei fratelli. E ciò riguarda tutti i talenti ricevuti da Dio, non solo le ricchezze materiali. “pensate alle cose di lassù, non a quelle della terra” afferma San Paolo.

 

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

 “Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.”  These words let Jesus tell the parable of the rich man with a grand confusion of values.  The rich man, soon to be dead, confuses earthly goods with heavenly goods; a good harvest with a good soul; and his wealth growth with his self-importance.  Whatever wealth he acquired would be someone else’s very soon.  So goes the Gospel reading.

Ecclesiastes (Qoheleth) says the same thing: “Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth, vanity of vanities!  All things are vanity!

These two readings make me remember my parent’s will, drawn up on a single sheet of paper, saying that we five children would inherit equally a 1/5 share of their estate, which meant the two-bedroom residence that our parents bought in 1953 for $11,500.  For some reason, known only to God, mother’s knick-knacks and curios were distributed to siblings and grandchildren without fuss.  I got a mantel clock that rests in my office.  My brother got Dad’s old pickup.  The teapots went to the girls and granddaughters.  The bank account paid for Mom’s funeral expenses.  I suppose most of you have similar stories and some of you might have unsettling stories, much like the man who approached Jesus in today’s Gospel.

We must not forget the many and sizable bequests to Saints Peter and Paul over the years.  I think of the generosity of Mr. Fillipello, Edith Bacigalupi, John Cuneo, Barbara Reiner, and Bea Bedoni.  These are just a few of the many parishioners who have given bequests over the years.  Great generosity over many years has helped sustain the parish operations and paid for its renovation, repair, and reinforcement.  God bless them.

Perhaps the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time is a good moment to suggest that every parishioner and perhaps a few loyal visitors also remember Saints Peter and Paul Church in their estate planning and planned giving. God will bless you too.

-Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Jubilee Year of Mercy: “God's patience has to call forth in us the courage to return to Him, however many mistakes and sins there may be in our life. ... It is there, in the wounds of Jesus, that we are truly secure; there we encounter the boundless love of His heart. Thomas understood this. Saint Bernard goes on to ask: But what can I count on? My own merits? No, ‘My merit is God's mercy. I am by no means lacking merits as long as He is rich in mercy. If the mercies of the Lord are manifold, I too will abound in merits.’ This is important: the courage to trust in Jesus' mercy, to trust in His patience, to seek refuge always in the wounds of His love.”―Pope Francis, April 7, 2013.

This Month’s Corporal Act of Mercy is: “Give Drink to the Thirsty.” We take safe, abundant drinking water for granted. But that’s not the case around the world. www.water.org is one of the organizations that works to provide clean, safe water to those in need. Co-founded by the famous actor Matt Damon, it has a four-star rating from Charity Navigator , which means your donations will be well spent. Visit water.org to learn more.

 


Choose Life! “The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships.” — Blessed Mother Teresa, Letter to the U.S. Supreme Court, 1994.

Help Kids visit Incarcerated Parents: Get on the Bus! More than 200,000 children in California have a parent in prison. Enduring this loss, these kids are more likely to suffer poverty and family instability, facing mental health issues and poor performance in school. Visiting a parent in prison can help lessen the negative impact on these unintended victims. Get On the Bus was founded to gather children and their care givers from all over the state of California and make it possible for them to visit their incarcerated parent. With no cost to the families, Get On the Bus provides the following: submission of paperwork required to visit; chaperones for children who have no adult to accompany them; transportation on chartered buses to and from prison; all meals during travel. The visit allows children and parents to reconnect after the long separation. 50% of Get On the Bus mother and 40% of Get On the Bus fathers report that they would never see their children without Get On the Bus. For more information, contact Sr. Elaine Coutu elainecoutu@att.net or 408-223-2802 or www.GetOnTheBus.us

Marriage Resources

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.”


Our Archdiocese is blessed with a very capable and hardworking Director of the Ministry of Marriage and Family Life, Mr. Ed Hopfner. Here some resources from his office:

It's not your Grandmother's Family Planning
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a modern method a couple can use to regulate fertility. It is based on up-to-date medical and scientific research and replaces the old ‘rhythm method’ which went out of favor in the 1950’s.  It is individualized for each couple – because every woman is unique. Contact Ed Hopfner for more information-- (415) 614-5547 or by email at hopfnere@sfarchdiocese.org

Family Planning can improve marriages
Natural Family Planning (NFP) has been shown to improve marriages - published studies have shown increased marital satisfaction. It also greatly improves marital communications. NFP is free after the initial training, and empowers couples by giving them highly accurate information about their own fertility, rather than relying on a third party.  Finally, NFP couples typically have extremely low divorce rates; one study of 1100 couples in CA showed a divorce rate of less than 2% over 24 years. Contact Ed Hopfner for more information-- (415) 614-5547 or by email at hopfnere@sfarchdiocese.org.

Do you know someone struggling with infertility?
Modern medicine has made great strides in helping couples overcome infertility, by restoring reproductive health through the application of Natural Procreative Technology™.  Yet many people, even in the medical profession, are still unfamiliar with it, even though it has a success rate of up to 75% in restoring natural fertility.  Contact Ed Hopfner for more information-- (415) 614-5547 or by email at hopfnere@sfarchdiocese.org.

CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR MARRIAGE?
Call Retrouvaille (415) 893-1005

Do you feel lost and alone?
Are you hurt, frustrated, or angry with each other?
Have you thought about separation or divorce?
Would you simply like to improve communication skills?

In Vatican City, Sep 26, 2008, Pope Benedict XVI met with Retrouvaille participants an explained that when a marriage is suffering, the spouses are facing an opportunity that "will help them to grow." Guided by Mary and with the help of the Lord, their love will be purified, deepened and strengthened.

Retrouvaille is the name of a Catholic Ministry designed to help heal and renew marriages. The word Retrouvaille simply means ‘rediscovery’.  The program offers the chance to rediscover yourself, your spouse, and a loving relationship in your marriage.   Retrouvaille is not just for hurting couples and welcomes all couples wanting to bring new life to your marriage.  Couples of all faiths and those with no faith tradition are welcome and encouraged to attend.  The ultimate goal of Retrouvaille is solely to help save marriages.

Retrouvaille is not a retreat, marriage counseling, or a sensitivity group. There are neither group dynamics nor group discussions on the weekend. It is not a time for hurting; it is a time for healing.  For more information go to ……www.retrouvaille.org.  Next SF weekend -  Nov 6-8  (East Bay Sept 18-20, San Jose Aug 14-16, Sacramento July 10-12, Oct 9-11)

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
