“On this mountain, the Lord of hosts / will provide for all
peoples / a feast of rich food and choice wines” (Isaiah 25:6).
That’s what Isaiah tells us today. God is putting together a huge
party for “all peoples,” to “wipe away / the tears from every face”
(Isaiah 25:8).
And what does Jesus tell us? The reign of God, he says,
“may be likened to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son”
(Matthew 22:2). When the guests didn’t come, the king had
his servants go out “into the main roads and invite to the feast
whomever you find” (Matthew 22:9). We are called to deliver
that invitation.
One of the themes woven into today’s liturgy is that of
divine generosity. Asleep to reality, people often think they have
“earned” what they have. In our better moments, though, we
know that all our gifts—even the spiritual gifts—come through
God’s generosity. Our vocation is to invite people, to remind
them the tickets aren’t for sale. We can only show up and say
thank you. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
Today’s Readings
First Reading — On this mountain the LORD will make for all
peoples a feast of rich food and choice wines (Isaiah 25:6-10a).
Psalm — I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my
life (Psalm 23).
Second Reading — God will supply whatever you need (Philippians
4:12-14, 19-20).
Gospel — I have prepared my banquet, and everything is ready.
Come to the feast! (Matthew 22:1-14 [1-10]).

Annually, World Mission Sunday is celebrated on the
next-to-last Sunday in October. As described by Pope
John Paul II, World Mission Sunday is “an important
day in the life of the Church because it teaches how
to give: as an offering made to God, in the Eucharistic
celebration and for all the missions of the world” (see
Redemptoris Missio 81).
Pope John Paul II has also spoken of the Propagation
of the Faith’s General Fund of support, calling this
a “central fund of solidarity.” In a message delivered
recently, Pope Francis said: “The offerings that will be
collected [on World Mission Sunday] are destined for
a common fund of solidarity distributed, in the Pope’s
name, by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith
among the missions and missionaries of the entire
Every year the needs of the Catholic Church in the Missions grow - as new dioceses are formed, as new seminaries
are opened because of the growing number of young men hearing Christ’s call to follow Him as priests, as areas
devastated by war or natural disaster are rebuilt, and as other areas, long suppressed, are opening up to hear
the message of Christ and His Church. That is why the involvement and commitment of Catholics from around
the world is so urgently needed. Offerings from Catholics in the United States, on World Mission Sunday and
throughout the year, are combined with offerings to the Propagation of the Faith worldwide.
Your ongoing support of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith is vital to the missionaries serving in 1,150
dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, parts of Latin America and Europe, and on the Islands of the Pacific. Your
generosity makes it possible for local priests, religious, and catechists to reach out to communities, families
and children in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances. These needs are
matched with the funds gathered in each year. The world’s national directors of the Propagation of the Faith
vote on these requests, matching the funds available with the greatest needs. These funds are then distributed,
in their entirety, to mission dioceses throughout the world.
For this year’s World Mission Sunday celebration, we are focusing on the words from St. Matthew’s Gospel,
“I Will Build My Church” (Matthew 16:18), highlighting the outreach of local churches through priests, religious
and laity among the poor and marginalized half a world away.
World Mission Sunday, organized by the Propagation of the Faith, is a day set aside for Catholics
worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church’s missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice.
In 2014, World Mission Sunday will be celebrated this year on October 19th.

What is Religious Education (aka CCD)?
Classes for students - mainly public school children-who wish to deepen their faith through
understanding and appreciation of Catholicism and the Sacraments. Religious Education strengthens
the child’s relationship with Christ.
The Religious Education Program here at St. Bartholomew Parish counts with an enrollment of
approximately 300 students on a yearly bases ranging from Pk 4 through 12th grade. This program
also serves adults through the RCIA programs in the diverse languages. In addition, we have a
volunteer staff of 45 adults and teens working as catechists and assistants in the classrooms. We will
train and assist those who would like to help in this ministry. Please call Mercedes Brown at the rectory.
Classes are on Sundays from 10:15 AM to 11:30 AM; and Tuesdays 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Children’s Sunday Liturgy is offered at the Parish Hall at 9:00 AM
Our Sacramental Programs are a two to three year process, beginning as early as First Grade.
Besides instruction in the Catholic faith, spiritual growth it is nurtured through: The Sacrament of
Reconciliation, Mass, Respect Life Drive, Advent and Lenten Food Drives for St Vincent de Paul,
Christmas Children’s Mass and Toy drive as well as many other activities. VBS (Vacation Bible School)
is our annual week-long camp in June.
Our program and the teachers do their best with the help of Our Lord’s grace
to make your child a well-rounded individual in all aspects of life.

Our shirt drive continues. We still
need to collect more long sleeve
shirts for the farm workers
assisted by St Ann’s Mission

flannel, they are thicker and
hold up better against the
pesticides used in the fields.
Please drop the shirts in the box
at the main entrance of church for the next
couple of weeks until the collection drive ends
on Sunday October 26.

“Sharing, Learning and Growing in Christ”
We have selected our first Community Service Learning project for the school year.
The students have been and will continue learning about the Seven Themes of Catholic
Social Justice Issues. The issue we are addressing right now is the Dignity of Work
and the Rights of Workers.
As you may be aware, many immigrants are currently the ones who are harvesting
crops, tending the grounds and doing other forms of farm work. These men, women
and children are out in extreme weather and exposed to harmful chemicals that are
found in the pesticides used on these farms. There is a great need to provide them
with proper attire to protect them from these harmful chemicals.
We have teamed up with our parish groups and St. Ann’s Mission to address this need.
We are collecting long sleeve shirts in all sizes for men, women and children.
This collection will continue until the end of the month. Please participate and support
this great cause that is affecting the lives of many.

and He will repay him for his deed.” Proverbs 19:17

Venez à la fête
“Ce jour-là, le Seigneur, Dieu de l’univers, préparera pour
tous les peuples, sur sa montagne, un festin de viandes grasses
et de vins capiteux, un festin de viandes succulentes et de vins
décantés” (Ésaïe 25:6). C’est ce qu’Ésaïe nous dit aujourd’hui.
“Le Seigneur essuiera les larmes sur tous les visages, et par toute
la terre il effacera l’humiliation de son peuple ; c’est lui qui l’a
promis.” (Ésaïe 25:8).
Et que nous dit Jésus? Le règne de Dieu, dit-il, “peut être
comparé à un roi qui célèbre les noces de son fils.” (Matthieu
22:2). Lorsque les invités ne sont pas venus, le roi fit appeler
ses serviteurs et leur dit: “Allez donc dans les carrefours et invitez
aux noces tous ceux que vous trouverez.” (Matthieu 22:9). Nous
sommes aussi appelés à partager cette invitation.
L’un des thèmes tissé dans la liturgie d’aujourd’hui est la
générosité divine. Endormi à la réalité, les gens pensent souvent
qu’ils ont “gagné” ce qu’ils ont. Dans nos meilleurs moments,
même si nous savons que tous nos cadeaux, même les dons
spirituels de Dieu nout viennent grâce à sa générosité. Notre
vocation est d’inviter les gens, et leur rappeler que les billets ne sont
pas en vente. Nous ne pouvons que nous présenter et dire merci.
Et mon Dieu
à tous vos
(Ph 4, 12-14.19-20)
1ère Lecture — Le Seigneur, Dieu de l’univers, préparera
pour tous les peuples, sur sa montagne, un festin de viandes

“El Señor de los Ejércitos preparará para todos los
pueblos en este cerro, una comida con jugosos asados y
buenos vinos” (Isaías 25:6). Esto es lo que Isaías nos dice
hoy. Dios está organizando una inmensa fiesta para “todos
los pueblos”, para “enjugar las lágrimas de todos los rostros”.
¿Y qué es lo que Jesús nos dice? “El reino de Dios”, él dice,
es como “lo que le sucedió a un rey que celebró las bodas de
su hijo” (Mateo 22:2). Cuando los invitados no acudieron, el
rey mandó a sus sirvientes a que fueran “a las esquinas de las
calles y conviden a la boda a todos los que encuentren” (Mateo
22:9). Nosotros somos llamados a distribuir esta invitación.
Uno de los temas entrelazado con la liturgia de hoy
es el referente a la generosidad divina. Ausente de la realidad,
la gente a menudo asume que ha “ganado” lo que tiene. En
nuestros mejores momentos, sin embargo, somos conscientes
de que todos nuestros dones, incluyendo los espirituales,
provienen de la generosidad de Dios. Nuestra misión es invitar
a la gente, recordarles que las entradas no están a la venta.
Lo único que podemos hacer es acudir y dar las gracias.

“La misión en la Iglesia Católica de San
Bartolomé es reflejar el amor de Dios a
todos quienes nos reunimos, para fortalecer
nuestra comunidad de fe a través de la
adoración, educación, compañerismo,
corresponsabilidad y actos de amor y
caridad, de modo que podamos dirigir
a personas de todas las procedencias
a nuestro Señor Jesucristo”.

Nueva Evangelización de la Cultura
El Papa Francisco ha dicho: “¡Es inútil preguntarle a una persona gravemente herida, si tiene
el colesterol alto o cuál es su nivel de su azúcar en la sangre!”. Hay que curarle las heridas.
Entonces podemos hablar de todo lo demás. Sanar las heridas, sanar las heridas. … Y hay que
empezar desde cero”.
La herida más profunda en la vida moderna es la herida causada por la pérdida de Dios.
De esta herida vienen todas las demás heridas que experimentamos, inclusive las cuestiones
morales graves y la confusión espiritual que vemos en todas partes.
Entonces, el reto para la Iglesia es sanar estas heridas. Y como bien sabemos, sólo Jesús puede sanar verdaderamente. Así que
nuestra prioridad en la Iglesia y en todo lo que hacemos debe ser Jesucristo. Tenemos que anunciarle a nuestros prójimos la buena
noticia de que Jesús los ha salvado. Tenemos que mostrarles, con el testimonio gozoso de nuestras propias vidas, lo que significa
la salvación: la hermosura de vivir como hijos de Dios en su familia, que es la Iglesia.
Una vez que las personas conozcan a Jesús, una vez que conozcan su amor y su ternura hacia ellas, podrán apreciar las hermosas
enseñanzas de la Iglesia acerca de la moralidad y el significado de la vida.
Esta es la visión de nuestro Papa acerca de la nueva evangelización de la cultura.
