World Mission Sunday Weekend
Today is World Mission Sunday! We are called to this Eucharistic Celebration
and invited to “do good on earth,” to be a missionary by putting our faith into
action in support of the work of missionaries. Bishop Cirilo Flores writes, “We
should be proud of the mission spirit evident in our parishes, and of diocesan
contributions to the missions. Our mission spirit is reflected in a variety of ways.
Our Catholic Schools and Religious Education Programs participate in Mission Projects
through the Missionary Childhood Association. Last year our diocese ranked fifth among
all the Unites States dioceses in providing financial support to the Pontifical Mission
Societies. A number of missionaries from our diocese are currently active in mission
countries. We are blessed and we are the source of blessing. Funds raised through the
collection for the Propagation of Faith make it possible for churches, schools, and medical
clinics to be built; for programs of catechesis to be established; for seminaries to provide education and
formation; and for orphanages to offer children shelter.”
Your prayers and generous gifts to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith on World Mission Sunday
support the tireless work of so many priests, religious and lay leaders around the world as they offer practical,
emotional and spiritual care to communities, children and families in desperate need, bringing the light of
Christ to the darkest of circumstances. For more information visit: Also check
out the October issue of the Southern Cross. The Mission Supplement contains some very good informational
items and inspirational stories of our missionaries. Some of the missionaries featured visited parishes of the
diocese this summer.
There are special envelopes for this collection in the pews.
Please return them in the collection basket or to the Parish Office.
Faith that Saves
It almost seems as if Jesus got distracted. Or maybe he was carrying on two
conversations at the same time, one of them off camera: “When the Son of Man
comes, will he find faith on earth?” How does that fit with the story of the judge
and the pesky widow?
It depends on what you mean by faith. Faith here does not mean the definitions
of a catechism. Jesus doesn’t use the widow as an example of correct doctrine
but rather to show the persistence of those who cry out to God day and night
because they trust his love and care in spite of appearances. This is praying
without ceasing, and praying without proof. When Jesus tells people in various
Gospel stories, “Your faith has saved you,” he means the attitude of trust by
which a person depends completely on the mercy of God.
On this Sunday, as on every Sunday, we “profess our faith” at Mass, recommitting ourselves to the
truths that have been handed down to us from the apostles. This is a good and necessary meaning
of faith. But it is possible to profess the true doctrine without having the faith that saves, the faith by
which we turn our lives over to God with complete trust in his love and mercy.
When the Son of Man comes, will he find this kind of faith on earth? Or more to the point, will he
find it in me?

Church Floor Renovation
You may be alarmed this
week if you come for daily
Mass or pop in for a short
prayer that half of the pews
in the Church will be missing. This week we will be in
the process of having our
wood floors refinished. The
refinisher will remove the
pews from one side of the
Church to sand and seal the floors. He should have the
one side done and pews reinstalled and ready to go for
Masses next weekend. The other side will be done
next month during the week of November 4th.

Governor Vetoes SB131
A Simple Way to Pray
In an unusually detailed threepage veto message released
on October 12th, Governor
Jerry Brown said the SB131
raised questions of equal treatment of public and private employers. Pointing to a
centuries-long tradition of limiting the period when
legal claims can be filed. Brown said institutions
should feel secure that "past acts are indeed in the
past and not subject to further lawsuits."
Is prayer a regular part of your
life? There is a simple way to
begin to pray regularly that will
help you use the scriptures and
quiet time. Find a passage in the Scriptures. It doesn’t have
to be long. A good guideline is to use one of the Mass
readings of the day. You can find those listed right here in
the bulletin. You can also use one of your favorite Bible
stories. Calm yourself, and ask God to help you. Read the
passage and then sit quietly. Try not to think about anything. Just let the passage settle in you. Now go back a
second time and read the passage again. Take note this
time of a word or phrase that might jump out at you, something you are drawn to. Take some quiet time to just think
about your word or phrase. Don’t try to analyze it. Just let
the words rest in your mind and in your heart.
He also argued that the legislation, which would have
in part lifted the statute of limitations on sexual abuse
claims for one year to allow some childhood victims
to file lawsuits, was "unfair" because it singled out
private organizations, such as Catholic dioceses and
the Boy Scouts. Public schools would not have been
affected by the bill, something Brown called "a
significant inequality."
Thank you to all of you who took the time and effort to
address this concern with letters and e-mails to the

Read your passage a third time, and this time ask God
what it is he wants you to understand about your word or
phrase. Then write down your word or phrase and carry it
with you for a day or a week, to remind you of what you
have experienced. When you are ready, you can move on
to another Scripture passage. This prayer experience can
also be done with your friends or family. It will help you
to see how God is working differently in your lives. It will
also help you to support one another.—The Catholic Faith Handbook
Kid’s Corner
Do you know why Catholics make
novenas? NOVENA comes from a Latin
word meaning nine. The apostles spent
nine days praying between the Ascension (when Jesus left them to go back
to heaven) and Pentecost (when the
Holy Spirit came to inspire them). So when there’s
something very important to pray about, prayers are
said every day for nine days in a row, asking God for
help. And that’s a novena! Here at St. Didacus we have
several novenas each year. The one that starts on
October 25th is our All Souls Novena. Each day for
nine days we pray for the souls of our departed loved
ones at Mass. Can you think of something important
that you would like to pray about for nine days?

XXIX Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
La parábola de la viuda y el juez
Esta parábola nos invita a la insistencia
en la oración. En la primera lectura vemos como Moisés tuvo esta experiencia, mientras oraba, con las manos elevadas a lo alto del
monte, Josué ganaba la batalla; cuando las bajaba, y dejaba de orar, los amalecitas, sus adversarios, los vencían. Los compañeros de
Moisés, conscientes de la eficacia de la oración,
le ayudaron a no desfallecer, sosteniéndole los
brazos para que no dejase de orar. Y así estuvo
con los brazos alzados, orando insistentemente, hasta que Josué venció a los amalecitas. Se
resalta en este texto la importancia de permanecer en oración, de insistir ante Dios.
Una buena manera de hacer oración es a
través de las Sagradas Escritura, ellas nos enseñan, reprenden, corrigen y nos educan. De
este modo estaremos equipados para realizar
toda obra buena.
Como dice el dicho: “A Dios rogando y
con el mazo dando”. ¿Es lo que hago yo?
Los invitamos a traer las fotografías
de sus seres queridos que ya están
en la paz de Dios para colocarlas en el altar del
día de los muertos antes del miércoles 30 de

El gobernador veto la propensión
En un mensaje de veto del gobernador Jerry Brown, que estuvo inusualmente
detallada el pasado 12 de octubre, dice que
la SB131 plantea cuestiones de igualdad de
las instituciones que deben sentirse seguras
de que "los actos pasados son de hecho en el
pasado y no están sujetas a otras demandas."
Gracias a todos los que se tomaron el
tiempo y esfuerzo para hacer frente a este
problema con cartas y correos electrónicos al
gobernador Brown.
