Prayers for the Family
The III Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of
Bishops, scheduled to take place from 5 to 19 October will
focus on the topic: The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the
Context of Evangelization.
We are invited to pray for this intention during during the
synod itself. In Rome, in the Basilica of Saint Mary Major,
prayers will be recited each day in the chapel of the icon, Salus
Populi Romani. The faithful, individually but above all in
families, are invited to join in these prayers.
The suggested prayers include the following Prayer to the Holy
Family for the Synod, composed by Pope Francis.
The recitation of the Holy Rosary is also recommended for the
duration of the synodal assembly.
P
rayer to the Holy Family for the Synod
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate
the splendour of true love,
to you we turn with trust.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too
may be places of
communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic Churches.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
may families never again
experience violence, rejection and division:
may all who have been hurt or scandalized
find ready comfort and healing.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
may the approaching Synod of Bishops
make us once more mindful
of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,
and its beauty in God’s plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.
Amen.

Reflecting on God’s Word
As Catholics we are invited to “come to the
feast” at significant moments in our lives.
Baptisms, First Communions, marriages,
ordinations, and funeral rites are all commonly
celebrated within the feast of the Eucharist.
The clothes we wear—from the baptismal
garment to the funeral pall, from fancy
wedding garb to simple white albs—reflect our
baptismal commitment to be faithful to Christ
until we come to the eternal heavenly feast that
our eucharistic celebrations anticipate. All are
invited to come to the feast. All are invited to
dress in the garment of Christ. Not all respond
to the invitation.
It has often been asked
what would happen if,
some Sunday morning,
praying as we always do
for Christ to come again,
Christ actually did return.
Would we come to his
feast? Would we prefer our
small private gathering to
the huge mass of people
we don’t really want to know? Would we be
found wearing the garment of faithfulness we
were given in baptism? Where would we be
“on that day”?
—Virginia Stillwell
Living God’s Word
Over the past few weeks the scriptures have
provided us with a feast of images of God’s
abundant mercy. Today’s image of the
heavenly banquet both completes the picture
of God’s generosity and shifts our attention to
our response to God’s generous invitation.

Vigésimo Octavo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

ACTIVIDADES DE LA SEMANA
Domingo 12: XXVIII Domingo Ordinario

Reflexionemos sobre la Palabra de Dios
Como católicos estamos invitados a “venir a la fiesta”
en momentos significantes de nuestra vida. Los
bautismos, las primeras comuniones, los matrimonios,
las ordenaciones y las exequias normalmente se
celebran dentro de la celebración de la Eucaristía. La
ropa que nos ponemos —desde la vestidura bautismal
hasta el sudario, desde el sofisticado atuendo de bodas
hasta las sencillas albas blancas— refleja nuestro
compromiso bautismal
de ser fieles a Cristo hasta
que lleguemos al banquete
celestial que nuestras
celebraciones eucarísticas
anticipan. Todos están
invitados al banquete.
Todos están invitados a
revestirse de Cristo. No
todos responden
a la invitación.
A menudo se ha hecho la
pregunta de lo qué pasaría
si una mañana de domingo, mientras oramos como
siempre lo hacemos para que Cristo vuelva de nuevo,
él se presentara ante nosotros. ¿Iríamos a su fiesta? ¿O
acaso preferiríamos nuestra pequeña reunión privada
en vez de la enorme multitud de personas que en
realidad no queremos conocer? ¿Nos encontraría con la
vestidura de la fidelidad que se nos dio en el Bautismo?
¿Dónde estaríamos en “ese día”?
—Virginia Stillwell
Vivamos la Palabra de Dios
En el curso de las semanas anteriores las Escrituras nos
han brindado un festín de imágenes de la abundante
misericordia de Dios. La imagen del banquete celestial
de hoy completa la descripción de la generosidad de
Dios y vuelve nuestra atención hacia nuestra respuesta
a la generosa invitación de Dios.

Mark Your Calendars for this Workshop:
Why Should you Pre-Plan Your Own Funeral?
As in Baptism we became a member of the Catholic Church
family, in death we preserve our faith, our Catholic rites, and
our unquestioning beliefs in God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Keeping consistent with your Catholic beliefs, it is important
for you to clearly record your wishes for a Catholic Funeral
service. You can make decisions now as to what mortuary to
use, what services you would like, readings, music, flowers,
and more. You can make your choices and arrangements now,
without feeling the pressure to rush, and in doing so you make
it easier on your family to fulfill your wishes.
Mission San Luis Obispo invites you to a special workshop on
Wednesday, November 12th at 6:00 pm in the Mission Parish
Hall. Facilitators for the workshop are Rev. Russell Brown,
Pastor of Mission SLO, Deacon Chuck Roeder, and Gayne Pinto
Bennett. All are welcome. For more information contact
Deacon Chuck at 805.781-8220 ext 32.

Please join us and stay for one or

Maria, Friends!
Social Justice Ministry
meets the first Tuesday
of every month at 7 pm
in the Serra Center. Join
us to learn what our new
projects are, and what you
can do to help.
Fall is here!! There will be many
opportunities upcoming for your
consideration. Watch this column!
Restorative Partners is a group dear
to our hearts. Several programs
led by this busy group are — and
have been — underway in the jail
system. We ask that you check
your cupboards for any sewing
fabric, wool, knitting needles or
crochet hooks, yarn or thread that
you hopefully would donate. The
women in the jail have created
beautiful handiwork which they
have donated to worthy causes-they are always in need of supplies.
There is now a well stocked library
in the jail due to the generosity of
our local and sister parishes. We will
probably never be able to appreciate
how much the inmates benefit!
Any sewing materials will be most
welcomed by Restorative Partners
at the Mission, or call for things to
be picked up if you wish: 544-6267.
Praise and bless my Lord and give
him thanks and serve him with
great humility.

Our students have been invited again to serve others by tithing:
by giving back to God from the abundance God has given us.
We invite our students and staff to freely give at least 10% of
their time, talent, and treasure from what God has so generously
given us. All money collected on Friday mornings will be distributed to
those in need as part of our Tithe of Time, Talent, and Treasure. Last year
our students very generously raised money and donated time and treasures
to assist many organizations including the parish Giving Tree program,
Operation Rice Bowl of the Catholic Relief Services and Get on the Bus.
Old Mission Catholic School is currently accepting applications for preschool
through eighth grade. Our entire school community is dedicated to the

spiritually empowered, academically enriched, and morally accountable for their
actions. For more information or to obtain an application, please visit our website
at www.oldmissionschool.com or call 543-6019. Come see us. We have openings, and
we have financial assistance. A Catholic education is an advantage for life.

Words of Wisdom: When you do things from your soul –
you feel a river moving in you – a joy. -Rumi
October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Those of us whose loved ones have
passed away or battle this terrible disease know the devastating effects that they
face every day. We are challenged to find hope and bring comfort when we are
struggling to make sense of it ourselves. We hope you too will find a moment to
pray in solidarity for those whose lives are linked with ours through their suffering.
Every October we make our Pink Memory book available. It holds many names
of loved ones whose lives have been touched by the suffering and battle that is
Cancer. We at the Gift Shop pray for those whose names are entered there on
a daily basis. Please feel free to come in and add a name to our Memory book
and join the many others who have shared with us. We are also making pocket
Rosaries, Rosary bracelets, and Rosaries that you can pass on to someone you love.
There will be healing prayers and healing Saint Medals as well that you might take
to someone in need.
If you haven’t been in to visit us lately this is a nice time to visit. The crowds of
summer are gone and as much as we enjoy the excitement there is something to be
said for the quiet. We will be looking forward to Advent and the Christmas season.
In the meantime we enjoy this short respite and use it for prayer and reflection.
The Gift Shop is open 7 days a week, from 9-5PM. Come in and browse, sit a
while and read – listen to the music – share a moment of fellowship. Our staff
is knowledgeable and always eager to assist you whether you are looking for a
special gift or just looking. We welcome you as always.

LANDINGS
Mission San Luis Obispo
Jack Pierce • 541-4464
For our six speakers and multiple helpers who made the
“Breaking the Bonds of Human Trafficking” a success. Our
audience expressed graditude for the speakers who gave them
a much broader understanding of the problem, possible
solutions, and where we as a faith based community fit into
those solutions.
A special “thanks” to Carrisa Phelps for bringing together a
panel of experts and delivering an inspirational opening talk.
A “thank you” also for the Social Justice Ministries and the
office of Bishop Garcia working behind the scenes. I am
sorry for not listing all of the individuals who helped but
there are too many to name.
A full house, a video conference with other parishes, along
with refreshments were icing on the cake.
Thanks Again.
In Christ Peace,
Eunice Pierce
