THIRTY - FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
NOVEMBER 2, 2014
Halloween:
A Catholic View
Several years ago, our then ten-yearold son surprised his (non-Catholic)
grandparents by announcing, matter of
factly, that "We're Catholics, so we
have to believe in vampires and werewolves." Needless to say, I had a little explaining to do, both to
his grandparents and to him.He was on to something, though.
Saying that we believe in vampires and werewolves was his way
of saying that, as Catholics, we believe in the reality of evil.
And we have to believe in the reality of evil in order to believe in the reality of good….
Modern Christians, including many Catholics, who try to downplay or erase the reality of Hell and of Satan and of evil often
don't realize that they're also diminishing the importance of what
it means to be a saint. If man is innately good, and there are no
"principalities and powers" trying to capture his soul for all eternity, then what's the point of making the sacrifices that saints
make?
Much of the modern aversion to Halloween, I think, stems from
the same unwillingness to acknowledge the reality of evil. But
there's a reason why we dress up as ghouls and goblins on the
night before we celebrate the feast of All Saints Day…. it's actually a Christian reason: We believe in a world that extends
beyond the one that we can see, a world in which angels and demons do contest for the souls of men, and the Prince of Lies
grows in power by convincing people that he does not exist.
If for no other reason than the fact that it reminds us that, as
Hamlet tells his friend, "There are more things in heaven and
earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy,"

Halloween is worth celebrating…

News From The Streets…
The Gentleman With
A French Accent
By Mary Martha Primerano
The Praise and Worship songs that are song at the nursing
home are life giving and full of hope. I witnessed this first hand
once we began to sing a song titled: I Believe. It goes like
this: We believe in God the father, we believe in Jesus
Christ, We believe in the Holy Spirit and He’s given us new
life. We believe in the Resurrection, We believe that He
conquered death... And He’s coming back again!! For those
of you who are regular church goers –you probably are familiar
with this song. Well as are Praise and Worship leader - Victor
played his guitar, and as we all joined in singing with all of our
hearts, I managed to notice one resident named Renault. I’m
not sure of his story but his light French accent signaled me
that he was far away from where his life began. Still when we
would hit the chorus part of the song, I would watch Renault
take his fist humbly and lightly pound his chest. My heart was
touched because I could visibly see Renault acknowledge his
creator by this small gesture. To those who have ever doubted if you could ever make a difference in someone’s life, we
offer you an opportunity to come join us to sing Praise and
Worship songs with the forgotten and alone. I heard it said,
“It is in giving that we receive”, and this is absolutely true.

Growing in the Joy of the Lord is perhaps one of
the most effective ways of evangelizing, one of
the first fruits of encountering Jesus. Through
our reflections, we will highlight ways we can continue
in that spirit even amidst the daily challenges you face working in the vineyard of the Lord.
Ask if your parish staff can come to a day of prayer and
reflection at the CRC. Volunteers are welcome to register
for this event too. You will have time to pray, reflect,
share.

ADVENT DAY OF PRAYER
The Coming of our God
Sr. Lois Dideon, r.c.
Dec. 13, 2014

Advent is a time for realizing more deeply that
God has come to us in the person of Jesus Christ. He calls us to
be one in Him; to know Him and take comfort in His
love, learning to love as He does. Come reflect on this divine
mystery that you may experience God's love more deeply and
fall ever more in love with Him.

“ GUARDA MI ALMA EN LA PAZ, JUNTO A TI, SEÑOR”
HIPÓCRITAS O
SERVIDORES
En el Evangelio de hoy, Jesús ataca una vez más a los escribas
y fariseos. Invita a los suyos a hacer y cumplir lo que enseñan,
pero no imitarlos en su conducta. Son críƟcas duras que les
hace a los dirigentes espirituales de su pueblo. En concreto
les echa en cara lo siguiente:
- no cumplen lo que enseñan,
- imponen cargas pesadas a la gente, pero ellos ni las tocan,
- quieren aparentar ante los demás,
- buscan los primeros puestos y los saludos en las plazas.
Ahora, uno podría pensar de que estas acƟtudes fueron
propias de esta ente y que con su muerte se acabaron.
LasƟmosamente no es así. Este discurso de Jesús se dirige,
por eso, también los crisƟanos de todos los Ɵempos. Se dirige
a las autoridades de la Iglesia y se dirige igualmente a cada
uno de nosotros. Porque los fariseos no son una categoría de
personas. Se trata, más bien, de una categoría del espíritu de
una postura interior. Es un bacilo siempre dispuesto a
infectar nuestra vida religiosa.
Todos somos fariseos:
- Cuando reducimos la religión a una cuesƟón de pracƟcas
espirituales,
a un
legalismo estéril;
- Cuando pretendemos llegar a Dios dejando de lado al
prójimo;
- Cuando nos preocupamos más de “parecer” que de “ser”;
- Cuando nos consideramos mejores que los demás.
Toda esta plaga Ɵene un único y solo nombre: hipocresía. Por
eso, con toda jusƟcia, fariseísmo se ha converƟdo para
nosotros en sinónimo de hipocresía. Y al leer estos ataques
tan violentos, uno comprende que la hipocresía sea el único
pecado ante el cual el Señor se haya horrorizado de verdad.
Los hipócritas Ɵenen una “doble cara”, una vuelta hacia Dios
y la otra hacia los demás. Y, sin duda, la cara que mira a Dios
es horrible, espantosa. Para Cristo, la ley no era un ídolo, sino
que era un medio. Tenía la tarea de empujar al hombre hacia
adelante, de ayudarle para crecer. La ley tenía que
desembocar en el amor. El corazón del hombre no está
hecho para la ley. Está hecho para el amor. Y una religion que
no se traduzca en amor merece un solo nombre: hipocresía.
El desaİo que hoy nos presenta Jesús es, entonces: amor o
hipocresía. En el Evangelio de hoy lo expresa así: “Que el más
grande de Uds. se haga servidor de los demás”. Porque amar
significa servir. Quien ama realmente, sirve a los demás, se
entrega a los hermanos. Es la acƟtud de Cristo. Toda su vida
en esta Ɵerra no fue sino un servicio permanente a los
demás. Y al final entrega hasta su vida por nosotros, para
liberarnos y salvarnos. Y es también la acƟtud de María. En la
hora de la Anunciación se proclama la esclava del Señor.
Nosotros muchas veces creemos que estamos sirviendo a Dios
porque le rezamos una oración o cumplimos una promesa.
Miremos a María: Ella le entrega toda su vida, para cumplir la
tarea que Dios le encomienda por medio del ángel. Cambia en
el acto todos sus planes y proyectos, se olvida completamente
de sus propios intereses. Lo mismo le pasa con Isabel. Sabe
que su prima va a tener un hijo y parte en seguida, a pesar del
largo camino de unos cien kilómetros. No busca pretextos por
estar encinta y no poder arriesgar un viaje tan largo. Y se
queda tres meses con ella, sirviéndola hasta el nacimiento de
Juan BauƟsta. Hace todo esto, porque sabe que en el Reino de
Dios los primeros son los que saben converƟrse en servidores
de todos. Cuando el ángel le anuncia que Ella será Madre de
Dios, entonces María comprende que esta vocación le exige
converƟrse en la primera servidora de Dios y de los hombres.
Queridos hermanos, pidámosle por eso, en esta Eucarisơa, a
Jesús y a María que nos regalen ese espíritu de servicio
desinteresado y generoso, que ellos han vivido tan
ejemplarmente. Sólo con ese espíritu podremos enfrentar los
desaİos del mundo de hoy.
Sólo con ese espíritu podremos ser instrumentos aptos para
construir un mundo nuevo.
¡Qué así sea!
En el nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo.
Amén.
