ANNUAL THANKSGIVING DINNER FOR THE HUNGRY
Saturday, November 22, 2014
at Saint Joseph’s School
1120 Miramonte Avenue, Mountain View
“I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink.”
— Matthew 25:35
THIRTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
GET READY
The Letters of Paul to the Thessalonians are among his earliest writings, and are driven by his belief and the
belief of the entire early Christian community that the return of Christ was imminent. Therefore, to devote time
or attention to anything else was foolish.
As time progressed, this fervor receded a bit. Today we may wonder, when we hear these readings about the
coming end-times, if we should take them to heart. What should we do when we hear that the day of the Lord
will come upon us “like a thief at night”? (1 Thessalonians 5:2)
Does this mean we are to stop our long-range goal-setting, get rid of our yearly calendars and planners, or
stop putting money in the college education fund? Of course not. What it does mean is that we need to
change our lives, living like children of the light and illuminating the world around us with the light of the
gospel. Then, on that day, when the details of our daily living become unimportant, we will be ready to find
our peace and security in Christ Jesus.
TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — The woman who fears the LORD is to be praised (Proverbs
31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31).
Psalm — Blessed are those who fear the Lord (Psalm 128).
Second Reading — Brothers and sisters, you are children of the light (1
Thessalonians 5:1-6).
Gospel — Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great
responsibilities (Matthew 25:14-30 [14-15, 19-21]).
SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM

TRIGESIMO TERCER DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO
PREPARENSE
Las cartas de Pablo a los tesalonicenses son de sus primeros
escritos, y fueron motivadas por su creencia y la de toda la
primera comunidad cristiana de que el regreso de Cristo era
inminente, y por eso seria una tontería dar tiempo o atención a
otras cosas.
Con el pasar del tiempo, ese fervor comenzaba a disminuir un
poco. Hoy día, cuando escuchamos estas lecturas sobre el fin del
mundo, podemos preguntarnos si de veras creemos que Cristo va
a venir entre nosotros como “un ladrón en la
noche” (1 Tesalonicenses 5:2).
Si la respuesta es “Si”, ¿debemos, o no, dejar nuestra
planificación a largo plazo, deshacernos de nuestros calendarios y
agendas, y suspender los ahorros para la educación universitaria
de nuestros hijos? Seguro que no. Pero, lo que si quiere decir es
que deberíamos cambiar nuestra vida y vivir como hijos de la luz e
iluminar el mundo a nuestro alrededor con la luz del Evangelio.
Entonces, en aquel día, cuando los
detalles de nuestra rutina diaria ya no
importen, estaremos listos para
encontrar nuestra paz y seguridad en
Cristo Jesús.
LECTURAS DE HOY
Primera Lectura— Un esposo es
capaz de confiar su corazón a su
esposa que es como una joya (Proverbios 31:10-13, 19-20, 3031)
Salmo—Dichosos los que temen al Señor (Salmo 128 [127]).
Segunda Lectura—El dia del Señor vendrá como el ladrón en la
noche (1 Tesalonicenses 5:1-6).
Evangelio—Porque has sido fiel en lo poco, ven a compartir la
alegría de tu Señor (Mateo 25:14-30 [14-15, 19-21]).
