Leadership
pastor’s note
CHURCH
Again this Sunday we hear the
insistence on the active vigilance
and bold risk required of those who
await the Lord. Matthew clearly has
in mind a smug community without
zeal. He describes as a “worthless,
lazy lout” the servant who is satisfied
with burying his talent and carrying
out in a servile way what he thinks
are his orders. Matthew has so consistently urged
believers to outdo themselves that we should not be
surprised when the servant who takes the greatest risk
reaps the greatest reward.
Rev. Sean Weeks, Pastor

Bob Little, Deacon
(503) 213-1447 / boblittle@stpius.org
Matthew does not mince words. What is at stake is the
eternal relationship between Christ and the Christian,
that “master’s joy” which we are called to share. On
the last day we will have the judge that we deserve.
Jesus is neither harsh nor arbitrary. What he expects
of us is in proportion to his love. He asks us to risk
everything in order to be open to receive all he has to
give. The capital which the Lord entrusts to us is first
and foremost his word: It opens our lives to infinite
horizons.
ADMINISTRATION
DID YOU KNOW…
Your weekly bulletin is provided at no cost to the church
by the generosity of businesses who advertise on the
back of the bulletin?
Bulletin advertising provides an inexpensive and
effective opportunity for you to promote your products or
services within your parish community. It’s true…people
like to do business with people they know and trust.
Have Christians failed to proclaim the word for fear
of risk, for lack of imagination and of initiative in
the face of the world’s needs? We must not miss our
rendezvous with history because of an excess of that
caution that has too long confined us. (St. Andrew’s
Missal, pgs. 867-868)
If you would like to advertise in the bulletin and support
the church, please call Tom Ott at (503) 650-6347.
With God’s Grace,
Fr. Sean Weeks
Pastor
Support the businesses that help make this
bulletin free to the church.

Company Matching Maximizes Your
Gift
Portland companies such as Nike and Intel have already
provided matching dollars to our Through Him, With
Him, In Him Capital Campaign. The matching gifts are
donated to St. Pius X in conjunction with a parishioner’s
campaign contribution.
Many employers – possibly yours – offer a company
match that could support our three-year effort.
If you have questions about securing a company match
or how funds may be used, please contact Molly
Washburn in the Parish Office at mwashburn@stpius.
org, or (503) 213-1450.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube
Follow us on our social medias to stay current on
upcoming activities, news, and events happening on
our campus. We will be uploading homily podcasts and
posting them onto our Facebook page weekly, posting
photos of events, relevant church news, and a weekly
pastoral word of encouragement.
PARISH REPORT AND STEWARDSHIP
COMMITMENT
This week you will receive in the mail our Parish
Financial Report and a Stewardship Commitment Card.
A Stewardship Commitment is your weekly, monthly,
annual gift to the operations of the Church. At
St. Pius X we use those funds for the Mission of our
Parish. We cover the cost of our ministries, programs,
staff, facilities and maintenance with these funds.

Your commitment is vital because it allows our
Administrative Council to plan our budget and be proper
stewards of our resources. This Parish Community has
the ability to be extremely generous throughout the year.
Together we support several organizations that serve
the greater community and communities around the
globe. The more generous you are with our Stewardship
Commitment, the more we can do to support our
youth, our Parish ministries, ministries to the poor and
organizations helping around the world.

names of our loved ones who have died. The banner
reminds us of our union with all of our loved ones in the
communion of saints, whether their names are on the
banner or not. The banner includes parishioners who
have died, children of parishioners and those who have
had funerals in our church. At some of our November
Masses we will sing the patron saints of the names on
the banner.

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL REFLECTION
SCRIPTURE FOR NOVEMBER 23
The good news of today’s Gospel is the extravagance of
what is being given us. All we need do is be faithful in
“small matters.” The cost of fidelity has no comparison
to the reward given. When you give to the Society of St.
Vincent de Paul, you are sharing God’s extravagant love.
Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17; 1Corinthians 15:20-26, 28;
Matthew 25:31-46
Jesus tells us that he is present in others; when we do
good to them, we do it to him. What acts of kindness
and service to others can I do today to remind
myself that Christ dwells in them?
Please join us for our regular meeting on MONDAY,
NOVEMBER 17, at 7:00 pm, in the Church Hall.
Meetings last one hour or less and all are welcome!

Catholics from the Holy Land will be selling olivewood

Spanish Masses. These items supply a major source of
revenue for more than 80 families in Bethlehem, where
the Christian population has dropped from 22% to less
than 2% in the past two decades. The items are beautiful
and make unique Christmas gifts.
The St. Vincent de Paul group of St. Pius X will be
sponsoring many families in need this Christmas
season. We provide each family with three large food
boxes and Fred Meyer gift cards collected from our
Parish giving tree. We would also love to provide
additional games, stocking stuffers, holiday candy or
specialty food items for the children. The items will be
directly delivered by parishioners to sponsored families
this holiday season. If anyone or any group would
like to donate these additional items to these families,
please contact Mary Kelly Rossow at (503) 329-9916.
This would be an excellent fundraising opportunity

la nota del Parroco
Ministerio latino
Del Santo Evangelio segun San Mateo 25, 14-30
Una vez más este domingo escuchamos
la insistencia en la vigilancia activa y
el riezgo audaz requerido por los que
esperan al Señor. Mateo claramente tiene
en mente una comunidad que se siente
satisfecha y sin celo. Él describe como
“sin valor, patán perezoso” al siervo que
se satisface con ocultar su talento y llevar
a cabo una manera servicial de lo que él
piensa son sus obligaciones. Mateo así
ha instado a los creyentes a superarse a sí mismos a que no
deberíamos sorprendernos cuando el siervo que lleva el mayor
riesgo recoge la mayor recompensa.
Meditación del Papa Francisco
El apóstol Pablo, al final de su vida, hace un balance
fundamental: “He conservado la fe” ¿Cómo la conservó?
No en una caja fuerte. No la escondió bajo tierra, como
aquel siervo perezoso. San Pablo compara su vida con una
batalla y con una carrera. Ha conservado la fe porque no se
ha limitado a defenderla, sino que la ha anunciado, irradiado,
la ha llevado lejos. Se ha opuesto decididamente a quienes
querían conservar, “embalsamar” el mensaje de Cristo dentro
de los confines de Palestina. Por esto ha hecho opciones
valientes, ha ido a territorios hostiles, he aceptado el reto de
los alejados, de culturas diversas, ha hablado francamente,
sin miedo. San Pablo ha conservado la fe porque, así como
la había recibido, la ha dado, yendo a las periferias, sin
atrincherarse en actitudes defensivas.
También aquí, nos podemos preguntar: ¿De qué manera
conservamos nosotros la fe? ¿La tenemos para nosotros, en
nuestra familia, como un bien privado, o sabemos compartirla
con el testimonio, con la acogida, con la apertura hacia los
demás? (S.S. Francisco, 27 de octubre de 2013)
Mateo no se anduvo con rodeos. Lo que está en juego es
la relación eterna entre Cristo y el cristiano, “la alegría del
maestro”, que estamos llamados a compartirla con El. En el
último día vamos a tener el juicio que nos merecemos. Jesús
no es ni duro ni arbitrario. Lo que él espera de nosotros es
en proporción a su amor. Él nos pide que arriesguemos todo
con el fin de estar abiertos a recibir todo lo que El tiene para
dar. El capital que el Señor nos confía es en primer lugar su
palabra: Que abre nuestra vida a horizontes infinitos.
Reflexión
Los talentos no sólo representan las pertenencias materiales.
Los talentos son también las cualidades que Dios nos ha dado
a cada uno.
No pudieron los cristianos proclamar la palabra por miedo
al riesgo, por falta de imaginación y de iniciativa a las
necesidades del mundo? No debemos perder nuestro
compromiso con la historia a causa de un exceso de
precaución que nos ha quitado demasiado tiempo. (Misal de
San Andrés, Pg. 867-868)
Vamos a reflexionar sobre las dos enseñanzas del evangelio
de hoy. La primera alude al que recibió cinco monedas y a
su compañero, que negoció con dos. Cada uno debe producir
al máximo según lo que ha recibido de su señor. Por eso, en
la parábola se felicita al que ha ganado dos talentos, porque
ha obtenido unos frutos en proporción a lo que tenía. Su
señor no le exige como al primero, ya que esperaba de él otro
rendimiento.
Con la gracia de Dios,
Padre Sean Weeks
Parroco
Igualmente se aplica a nosotros, según las posibilidades
reales de cada individuo. Hay personas que tienen gran
influencia sobre los demás, otras son muy serviciales, otras,
en cambio, son capaces de entregarse con heroísmo al
cuidado de personas enfermas, los hay con una profesión,
con un trabajo, con unos estudios, con una responsabilidad
concreta en la sociedad...
Pero puede darse el caso del tercer siervo del evangelio: no
produjo nada con su talento. A Cristo le duele enormemente
esa actitud. Se encuentra ante alguien llamado a hacer un
bien, aunque fuera pequeño, y resulta que no ha hecho nada.
Eso es un pecado de omisión, que tanto daña al corazón de
Cristo, porque es una manifestación de pereza, dejadez, falta
de interés y desprecio a quien le ha regalado el talento.
Analiza tu jornada. ¿Qué has hecho hoy? ¿Qué cualidades
han dado su fruto? ¿Cuántas veces has dejado sin hacer lo
que debías?
