Mass Intentions for the Week
28th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Oct. 12, 2014
From the Pastor’s Desk
Dear Friends,
The other week as someone was coming out of Mass
they wanted to know why God lets abortion take
place…why he lets the women get pregnant. I was a
little stunned but could see and understand the
confusion and pain. Why are we able to choose evil?
Would it not be better if we just couldn’t do bad
things? That maybe we were locked up a bit? Maybe
clip the wings of the bird so it won’t fly away? The
problem is that we have freedom and we can use it
badly. So take away the freedom?
Freedom is the most esteemed gift from God to us. In
our freedom we are closest to what God is. God wants
us to become like Him through this gift of freedom.
Freedom means the ability to also say no. That is a
tragedy. That is why He sends His Son, so that we
would fall in love again and say yes. If He took away
our freedom and “made” us love Him, we would be
robots. It would not be love. We would not be human.
The world is full of evidence of us not choosing God,
or love. We have the terrifying ability to inflict all
kinds of evil on others. As the Church, we are called
to something else: “to live in such a way
that…through our lives, our action, our
companionship, our projects…that the glory of God
may thus appear ever more clearly, through our
adherence to Christ that changes our lives, and the life
of the world, by transfiguring them”(Guissani, A
Movement in the World, p.114). The use of our
freedom, to follow Christ and embrace the Cross, we
bring about a new reality.
This is Respect Life Month and it is also the month of
the Holy Rosary. Mary’s freedom reflects the freedom
of God and allows God to work in the world to save it.
It is her “yes” that changes everything. It is because
she has freedom. We too have freedom to say “yes”.
It is a power greater than all the “no’s” we see each
day. Christ’s “yes” has already conquered the world.
We join ours to His to see it manifested more each
day. We pray that through this “yes” all life is
cherished, accepted and loved.
Christ needs us to freely choose Him so that the glory
of God may be revealed. Mary used her freedom so
that God could redeem the world. In the Rosary, the
powerful tool of God’s grace, we ask Our Lady to help
us use our freedom to work for God’s plan of the
world. That His glory be revealed. This saves the
world.
God Bless, Fr. Lee

 Did you know that we’re two weeks into the 40 Days
for Life campaign and there have been 80 babies saved
from abortion nationwide! Recently, a young man rode up
on a bicycle and stopped to talk to a volunteer on Wisteria
Dr. He said that when he and his wife were expecting their
third child, they’d seriously discussed the idea of abortion
because of family finances. He said that they saw people
standing in prayer outside the abortion offices, and that
made them think about what they were about to do. Their
baby girls is now 1 month old. “You never know what
impact you will have. The simple act of standing on the
sidewalk and praying for an end to abortion can save a
life,” said Andrew Glenn, 40 Days for Life coordinator.

12 octubre 2014
DE NUESTRO PARROCO
Queridos feligreses:
La semana anterior al salir de misa alguien se preguntaba
por qué Dios permite el aborto, porqué permite que las
mujeres queden embarazadas. Quedé sorprendido pero
entendí y comprendí la confusión y el dolor. Porqué
podemos escoger hacer el mal? No sería mejor que no
pudiéramos hacer cosas malas? Que talvez estuviéramos
un poco limitados? Recortar las plumas de las alas del
ave para que no pueda volar? El problema es que
tenemos libertad y que la podemos usar mal. Entonces,
quitemos la libertad?
Evangelio según San Mateo 21, 28 - 32
Comentario de San Agustín de Hipona
Revestir el traje de bodas
¿Cuál es el traje de bodas del cual habla el Evangelio?
Ciertamente que este traje es una cosa que sólo la poseen
los buenos, los que han de participar del festín... ¿Serán
los sacramentos? ¿el bautismo? Sin el bautismo nadie
llega a Dios, pero algunos reciben el bautismo y no
llegan a Dios... ¿Es el altar o lo que se recibe del altar?
Pero recibiendo el Cuerpo de Cristo algunos comen y
beben su propia condenación. ¿Qué es, pues?, ¿el ayuno?
Los malos ayunan también. ¿El frecuentar la Iglesia?
Los malos van a la Iglesia como los demás...
¿Qué es, pues, este traje de bodas? El apóstol Pablo nos
dice: «El fin de los mandamientos es la caridad que
procede de un corazón limpio, de una conciencia recta y
de una fe sincera». Éste es el traje de bodas. No se trata
de un amor cualquiera, porque a menudo se ven a
hombres deshonestos amar a otros..., pero no se ve en
ellos esta caridad «que nace de un corazón limpio, de
una conciencia recta y de una fe sincera»; pues esta
caridad es el traje de bodas.
«Ya podría yo hablar las lenguas de los hombres y de los
ángeles, dice el apóstol, si no tengo amor, no soy más
que un metal que resuena o unos platillos que
aturden...Ya podría tener el don de predicción y conocer
todos los secretos y todo el saber; podría tener fe como
para mover montañas; si no tengo amor no soy nada».
Ya podría yo tener todo esto, dice, sin Cristo «No soy
nada»... ¿Cuántos bienes son inútiles si un solo bien
falta! Si no tengo amor, aunque distribuyera todos mis
bienes, confesara a Cristo hasta derramar la sangre por
él, de nada me serviría todo ello, puesto que puedo
obrar así por amor a la gloria... «Si me falta el amor, no
sirve para nada». Éste es el traje de bodas. Examinaos: si
lo tenéis, acercaos confiadamente al banquete del Señor.
La libertad es el don más estimado que Dios nos da. En
nuestra libertad estamos en la condición más cercana a
Dios. Dios quiere que nos hagamos como El mediante
el don de la libertad. Libertad significa tener la
capacidad de decir NO. Eso es una tragedia. Por eso
nos envió a su Hijo, para que pudiéramos amarlo
nuevamente y podamos decir SI. Si Dios nos quitase
nuestra libertad y nos “hiciera” amarlo, seríamos robots.
No sería amor. No seríamos humanos.
El mundo está lleno de evidencias de que no escogemos
a Dios ni al amor. Tenemos esta capacidad horrible de
infligir toda clase de perversidades a otros. Como
iglesia, estamos llamados a otro objetivo: “vivir de
manera que nuestras vidas, nuestros actos, nuestras
compañías, nuestros proyectos muestren la gloria de
Dios cada vez más claramente, siguiendo al Cristo que
cambia nuestras vidas y la vida del mundo,
transfigurándolo todo” (Guissani, Movimiento en el
mundo, p. 114). El uso de nuestra libertad para seguir a
Cristo, para abrazar la cruz, nos presenta una nueva
realidad.
Este es el mes del Respeto a la Vida y también el mes
del santo Rosario. La libertad e María refleja la libertad
de Dios y permite que Dios obre en el mundo para
salvarlo. Fue el SI que ella dijo que lo cambia todo. Es
porque ella tuvo libertad. Nosotros también tenemos la
libertad de decir SI. Es un poder mayor que todos los
NO que vemos día a día. El SI de Cristo ya conquistó el
mundo. Unimos nuestros SI a el de El para para ver sus
manifestaciones cada día. Recemos para que mediante
este SI se aprecie, acepte y ame cada vida.
Cristo quiere que lo escojamos a Él con libertad para que
se pueda revelar la gloria de Dios. María usó su libertad
para que Dios pudiera redimir al mundo. En el rosario,
herramienta poderosa de la gracia de Dios, pedimos a
nuestra Señora que nos ayude a usar nuestra libertad para
trabajar por el plan de dios en el mundo. Que su gloria
se revele. Esto salva al mundo.
Que Dios los bendiga
Padre Lee

Santa Narcisa de Jesús Martillo Morán
Narcisa de Jesús Martillo Morán no dejó nada escrito.
Siempre quiso permanecer oculta ante los ojos del
mundo. Dedicaba ocho horas diarias a la oración. La
acompañaban el silencio, la soledad, el trabajo y el
sacrificio.
El próximo 12 de octubre será canonizada esta laica
consagrada ecuatoriana. "No obstante la pobreza de las
informaciones que todo biógrafo lamenta, la riqueza
espiritual (...) es tan grande que resplandece a través de
lo poco que sabemos de ella", asegura Pagoli G
Papasgoli, en el libro "Riscatto di un popolo" (Rescate
de un pueblo).
Como laica hizo sus votos de virginidad perpetua,
pobreza y obediencia a la Iglesia. Se sentía llamada a
permanecer en el mundo para ser fermento de bien.
Dedicaba ocho horas diarias a la oración. También
practicaba actos de penitencia para unirse más a la cruz
del Señor.
Nació en un pueblo llamado Nobol de la diócesis de
Guayaquil, Ecuador. Sus padres eran agricultores y fue
la sexta de nueve hijos. Su madre murió cuando era
pequeña. Era de carácter dulce. Aficionada a la costura,
al servicio doméstico, también al canto y la guitarra. La
búsqueda de una dirección espiritual la llevó a
trasladarse a Guayaquil cuando tenía unos 20 años donde
llevaba una vida pobre y se alojaba en lugares sencillos.
Quiso seguir el ejemplo de la vida de la santa también
ecuatoriana Marianita de Jesús (1618 - 1645).
Sus biógrafos las consideran como almas gemelas. "El
punto de unión es la entrega total que ellas hacen a
Cristo y al prójimo. Narcisa igualmente sigue el estado
de vida laical como Mariana, además sigue la
espiritualidad de oblación y sacrificio tomando por
modelo a Mariana en reparación por los pecados de los
compatriotas".
En Guayaquil conoció al sacerdote
franciscano Fray Pedro Gual que residía en Lima.
Narcisa se encontraba sin director y él comenzó a
ayudarle espiritual y materialmente y por ello le pidió
que se trasladara a Lima donde se estableció en el
Beaterio del Patrocinio.
Hoy, en Nobol muchas personas se dedican a las labores
del campo o a pequeños negocios como venta de
comidas o acogida de miles de peregrinos que llegan de
todos lados la hacienda San José donde vivió y el
santuario donde reposan sus restos.

Excerpt from Fr. Joe Breighner’s
“More Reflections Along A Country Road”
by Father Joe Breighner
“Minute Meditations for Everyday”
Good Example
The most effective way we share our scriptures, our understanding of the sacraments, our prayer life and
our image of God, is by how we live. As someone has profoundly put it, “People may not always believe
what you say, but they will always believe what you do.”
So our effort is to live as Jesus asked us to live when He gave the criteria for entering the kingdom of
God, “I was hungry and you fed me; thirsty and you gave me something to drink; naked and you clothed
me; in prison and you visited me; a stranger and you took me in”
Put simply, the best way to show our belief in God is through the sermon of our lives.
When we treat the least person the way we treat God, then we become believable and God
becomes visible.
