Frankly speaking...
A Special Intention: John Poole, a respected member of the parish, for personal reasons, has recently resigned his positions in liturgical ministry, as chair of the Parish
Council, member of the Finance Committee, and member of the Spiritual, Life and
Worship Committee . I would like to extend a special thanks to John for his service to
JORS and ask you to please offer prayers for him and his family.
The readings for the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time focus on the theme of
prayer. Today we hear of the importance of humility and sincerity in our prayer life.
The first reading is taken from the Book of Sirach, a book belonging to Israel’s
wisdom traditions. Written about two hundred years before the birth of Christ by a sage
living in Jerusalem, the Book of Sirach has a major focus on moral instruction. Today’s
reading speaks to God’s equal justice for all and God’s partiality for the weakest and most
vulnerable in society, especially the orphan and the widow. Sirach also tells us that God
hears and responds to the prayers of all those who serve him “willingly.” Most importantly, our Jewish sage connects one’s sincerity of heart with the effective transmission of
our prayers of petition to God.
The Gospel reading for today is the parable of the Pharisee and tax collector. Once
again, this is a parable found only in the Gospel of Luke. And it follows immediately after
the parable of the persistent widow heard last Sunday. Both parables discuss prayer, but
whereas the parable of the persistent widow was directed to the disciples, this Sunday the
parable of the Pharisee and tax collector is directed to the crowds, especially those selfrighteous in the crowds. Jesus juxtaposes what many in the crowd would have readily acknowledged as the extremes on the social and religious continuum acceptable to God: the
Pharisee and the tax collector. Like the sage Sirach before him, Jesus focuses on the sincerity and humility of heart in one’s prayer life. We also learn from Jesus another dimension
to prayer. An authentic prayer life begins by a sincere examination of conscience, as evidenced by the tax collector, “O God, be merciful to me a sinner.” By focusing on oneself
rather than the other (as seen by the Pharisee’s prayer), a sense of humility is cultivated
within. It is humility in prayer that is pleasing to God, and leads to justification and forgiveness of sins.
Our second reading for today concludes a series of seven Sundays that have been
taken from Paul’s First and Second Letter to Timothy. Today’s reading from Second
Timothy includes some of Paul’s parting words to Timothy. In the first half of the reading,
Paul emphasizes to Timothy the importance of his fidelity of faith in Christ: “I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.” Still present in this letter is the
anticipation of the second coming and rewards for fidelity: “the crown of righteousness
awaits me” and “the Lord, the just judge, will award me on that day…of his appearance.”
In the second half of the reading, Paul speaks more specifically to some of his disappointments as he fought for the faith: “At my first defense no one appeared on my behalf, but
everyone deserted me.” This is likely a reference back to an incident mentioned earlier in
his letter, where he was deserted in Asia, even by the leaders of the Christian communities
in the area, Phygelus and Hermogenes (see 2 Timothy 1:15-16). But Paul is quick to offer
his forgiveness: “May it not be held against them!” Rather than dwell on the disappointment, Paul chooses to focus on the presence of the Lord that he felt in his time of trial.
Paul offers for us a model of humility and sincerity in our prayer life. To Timothy,
Paul offers his own examination of conscience and rather than focusing on the other, Paul
turns inward and focuses on the strength and confidence in his relationship with the Lord.

Padre Oscar…
Hoy celebramos la Jornada Mundial de las Misiones. Aunque esta fiesta nacio hace muchos anos en la Iglesia, buscando brindar
ayuda ayudas a los que trabajan en las tierras de misiones, el momento tambien es propicio para reflexionar en la misión que
cada uno tenemos como miembros de la Iglesia y discipulos enviados del Senor.
Recordemos que como misioneros debemos buscar llegar a todos los grupos sociales y culturales para dejar un mensaje de vida
cristiana; especialmente a quienes aun no han acogido a Cristo en sus vidas, a quienes lo rechazaron en algun momento o lo redujeron solamente a una costumbre, doctrina o practica religiosa.
Es por ello que el texto del Eclesiastico nos dice que Dios no es sordo, ni mudo, ni se queda cruzado de brazos ante las necesidades de los que mas lo necesitan.
Laicos, religiosos y sacerdotes estamos llamados a caminar como Iglesia misionera y anunciar a los mas pobres, a los que sufren, que el Reino de Dios esta cera y pueden ya sentirlo a traves del amor y de la ayuda espiritual y material que podamos ofrecerles. NOS SENTIMOS SOLOS EN ESTA TAREA?
Leamos lo que nos dice San Pablo en su carta a a Timoteo, que a pesar de no recibir el apoyo esperado, encontro su fortaleza en
el Senor para seguir adelante.
OREMOS: Senor, hay muchos oidos sordos a tu palabra, ojos ciegos que se niegan a verte en el projimo, corazones rotos incapaces de perdonar. Quiero llevar, como san Pablo, la voz que nace de tu Evangelio, que vean en mi un testigo de tu amor, y que
sea instrumento para sanar las heridas de los que odian y sufren por el pecado.
Para recibir este Sacramento los papas del
nino que se va a bautizar deben ser miembros
de la parroquia por lo menos con 4 meses de
antiguedad. El dia de la platicas los papas
deben traer el registro de nacimiento del
nino. Los padrinos deben traer copia del acta
matrimonial. Las parejas que viven en union
lobre o solamente con matrimonio civil no
pueden ser padrinos.
