From the Pastor

Dear Fellow Parishioners:

As you may know fifty years ago this year I entered the Society of Jesus and began my journey toward priesthood. This is a moment of celebration in thanksgiving for the vocation God has given me.

For the next two weeks I will be celebrating this anniversary with another Jesuit friend of mine on a cruise through the Mediterranean visiting Spain, France, Italy and Montenegro. I will return to the office on Halloween, so relaxed you won’t recognize me!

Fr Bob

Notas del Párroco

Estimados Feligreses:

Como tal vez saben, hace cincuenta años entre a la Sociedad de Jesús e inicie mi camino hacia el sacerdocio. Este es un momento de celebración en acción de gracias por la vocación que Dios me ha dado.

Por las próximas dos semanas estaré celebrando este aniversario con otros Jesuitas amigos míos en un crucero por el Mediterráneo visitando España, Francia, Italia y Montenegro. Regresare a la oficina el día de Halloween tan relajado que no me reconocerán!

Padre Bob

Today’s Scripture Reflection - October 15, 2017

Many are called but few are chosen.” It is with those words that Jesus closes His teaching found in today’s Gospel from the Book of Matthew. It is in effect the closing of the Parable of the Wedding Feast. Jesus is trying to explain to us what the Kingdom of Heaven will be like. We could just as easily change the word “called” to “invited.” We may hear the call, but the challenge is responding to it.

Reflexion del la Esccritura de Hoy -  15 de Octubre de 2017

Vigésimo Octavo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

UN FUERTE CONTRASTE

La parábola de hoy en el Evangelio es como una caricatura política o novela gráfica. Utiliza exageraciones y extraños giros de la historia para transmitir su mensaje. Hay una poca intensión de ser "realista". Jesús compara el rechazo hacia él por parte del sumo sacerdote y los ancianos a una escena imaginaria escandalosa. Para su audiencia, hubiera sido profundamente ofensivo que alguien asistiera a un banquete real y luego violentamente rechazara la invitación. Esto indicaría una rebelión total en contra del rey. La parábola fue una acusación contundente en contra de los líderes religiosos. En comparación, las personas encontradas en la calle que iban al banquete eran como aquellas que aceptaron a Jesús durante su ministerio. Ellos son las personas "sin importancia" que sorpresivamente son receptivas hacia él. Mateo marca un fuerte contraste para acusar a los sacerdotes y ancianos y elevar a las personas ordinarias que reconocen la presencia de Dios en Jesús.
