Genesis 2:18-24; Hebrews 2:9-11; Mark 10:2-16 or 10:2-12. In the first reading, God creates a suitable partner for the man—a woman. The man calls her bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. In the Letter to the Hebrews, the author writes of the one who, “for a little while” was made “lower than the angels,” that by he grace of God he might taste death for everyone. In the Gospel, the Pharisees ask Jesus about the law regarding divorce. Jesus answers, what God has joined together, no human being must separate.

 

 Domenico 27A Del Tempo Ordinario

La Parola di Dio questa domenica è chiara. Dio ha voluto fin dall’inizio l’unita della coppia. Vivere insieme non è facile. È necessaria una lunga maturazione, perché l’uomo e la donna possano aprirsi alla grandezza dell’amore, alla quale Dio li chiama.

 

 常年期第二十六主日

今天的讀經一記述梅瑟覺得自己一人不能負起整個民族的重擔,求天主幫助,天主把「他身上的神能賦給七十位長老……當時有兩人不是屬於他們之中的,也開始出神說話。」年青的若穌厄很生氣,提出抗議。而在福音中,也記載着類似的事,門徒們看見有一個不是與他們同門的人,因耶穌的名字驅魔,就禁止他。這是排除異己的心理,這樣的情形往往發生在今日我們所處的環境中,是耶穌所不喜歡的。無論什麼人,祇要懷着為基督而行善,天主都會報答。我們應該懷着愉快的心情互相合作,並且幫助他更深地認識天主。

今天的這段福音記載耶穌除了告訴我們對外人應有的態度外,又告訴我們自己應盡的責任,要立善表,常檢討自己的言語行為,並加深認識教理,免得在言語行動上,使信仰不深的人失足跌倒。最後祂又要我們保護自己,極力避免犯罪,免得永遠和祂分離。

耶穌把使人失足和一個人自己失足都看得很嚴重,用了少有的非常嚴厲的話語告誡我們,我們對祂這番話不應等閒視之。

十月是玫瑰月,我們在這月中要多念玫瑰經,熱心恭敬聖母。十月六日是玫瑰聖母節,我們可以從今天開始做九日敬禮,以表示對她感激和孝愛。

From Fr. Tho: This Sunday’s scripture passages are often selected by married couples for their wedding to remind them about the commitment to each other as they began their married life. The first reading from the Book of Genesis and the Gospel of Mark states the same message. From the Book of Genesis, “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one flesh.” (Gen. 2:18-24.) And from the Gospel of Mark, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” (Mk. 10:7-8).

From the beginning of the creation, God created Adam and Eve and blessed their marriage. During the time of Jesus, divorce was very easy to obtain. People were taught that if a woman ruined a meal or spoke badly about her in-laws her husband could divorce her; some even said that if a man spotted a woman who was more beautiful than his wife he could divorce his wife. The Pharisees knew that divorce was common among the people, so they asked Jesus to confirm that whether married couples could get divorced according Moses’ Laws. Jesus answers them: once a man and a woman married, they must live together until death. Jesus reassured another commandment, “Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate.” (Mk. 10:9). The Catholic Church follows the teaching of Jesus by providing services to help married couples preserve their married life.

Some studies show that the Catholic divorce rate is lower than other religious affiliations. The Catholic Church encourages married couples to discern and prepare for marriage seriously. To prepare for the marriage, the Church requires the couples to process their marriage preparation for at least six months before their wedding. Our Archdiocese of San Francisco requires the couples to take the FOCCUS Inventory, attend the Pre-Cana courses and marriage preparation retreat. The Archdiocese also offers workshops for married couples to strengthen their relationship. The Catholic Church is concerned about married life and families. Therefore, these preparation steps and services may help married couples to deal with the challenges and difficulties of married life.

Pope Francis points out that to be married is to sacrifice for each other with care and love no matter what challenges and difficulties they face; they have to help each other. Pope Francis writes, “Marriage is an inevitable mixture of enjoyment and struggles, tensions and repose, pain and relief, satisfactions and longings, annoyances and pleasures, but always on the path of friendship, which inspires married couples to care for one another: “they help and serve each other.” Pope Francis, The Joy of Love, 126, 2016.

Let us pray for all the couples who are preparing for their marriage and for those who have married to be faithful to each other and preserved in their married life. May God bless them with love and happiness.

Have a blessed week!

Fr. Tho Bui, SDB, Pastor

Numbers 11:25-29; James 5:1-6; Mark 9:38-43, 45, 47-48. In the first reading, the Lord takes some of the Spirit that was on Moses and bestows it on the elders, and they begin to prophesy. James writes to warn the rich of the judgment coming to those who seek luxury and pleasure, while shortchanging their workers. In the Gospel, Jesus speaks against intolerance, referring to someone who is not a follower who is driving out demons. He says: Whoever is not against us is with us.

 

 Domenico 26A Del Tempo Ordinario

 Le parole di Gesù hanno una portata ecclesiale, visto che la Chiesa non ha il monopolio del bene, perchè lo Spirito Santo opera oltre le sue frontiere. Nel giornodel giudizio Dio riconoscerà come suoi tutti coloro ch avranno agito con carità nei riguardi degli ltri. Al contrario dare cattivo esempio, soprattutto ai deboli, è imponderonabile. Bisogna sradicare tutto quello che è causa di peccato.

A car was trying to get into the military camp. However, it did not carry proper credentials for clearance through the gates. The gate-keeper soldier therefore, approached the driver who had no choice but to stop. From inside the car, the general was heard to say “Go ahead driver, ignore him. I’m ordering you to drive this car into the camp.” The gatekeeper answered the general. “My orders, sir, are not to let anyone in without proper credentials. So now, who do I shoot first? The driver or you?”

Amputations are a very painful and risky medical procedure. However, they are prescribed as a risk to be taken for the sake of the rest of the body’s health and well-being. We amputate so that a diseased part of the body no longer threatens the good health of the whole body.

It can be painful and traumatic to lose a hand or a foot or a leg or even an eye! These are very important to our bodies. But when they become a threat to the rest of our whole body, though painful and risky, it’s always better to lose one of these important parts so that the rest of us lives.

In the Gospel this Sunday, the Lord Jesus is ready to risk the amputation of any very important member of the community of disciples if that very important disciple becomes a threat or danger to the rest of the faith community. “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off… If your foot causes you to sin, cut if off… If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out.”

How does a disciple become a danger or threat to the believing community? When that disciple pays little or no attention to the “little ones”. “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”

The Lord Jesus treasures the “little ones” in the community. They are usually those who are “outside our camps” (First Reading) who we tend to exclude from our “circle of chosen friends”. They are those whom the powerful – the rich in Saint James’ letter – condemn and murder, withhold just wages from and value less than their wealth, clothes and possessions.

But the “little ones” – the unheard, unseen, unheld, unimportant, undervalued – are whom the Lord Jesus has come for. “The Son of Man has come to seek and save the lost.” (Lk 19:10)

To remain with the Lord Jesus, therefore, we are called to learn and grow to be very inclusive of others especially of the “little ones” of our world as the Lord Jesus is. “Whoever is not against us is for us.” People who are little and powerless can never do any harm to those who are important and who hold power. They will always be loyal to those they need to depend on.

If we are to faithfully follow the Lord Jesus, let us not ignore the “little ones” whom the world ignores. A general who gives no value to a little soldier – like the one we encountered at the beginning of this column – doesn’t deserve to be general of any soldier at all.

Are there any “little ones” in our community we need to protect, defend and shelter against the powerful among us? Are there any powerful we may need to “amputate” from our faith community? –Fr. Ramon Zarate, SDB, Parochial Vicar

Eucharistic Adoration: We have Adoration every Wednesday from 7-8PM. Make time to visit your friend Jesus!  “I see (St. Dominic Savio) so often at prayer, staying in church after the others; every day he slips out of the playground to make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament.” —Mamma Margaret to Don Bosco.

Choose Life! From the U.S. Bishops: Congress is about to vote on the most radical abortion bill of all time. The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” (H.R. 3755/S. 1975) would

impose abortion on demand, at any stage of pregnancy. It would apply nationwide—even in states that don’t want it.

Even modest and popular pro-life laws at every level of government—the federal, state, and local level—would be on the chopping block. This includes parental notification for minor girls, informed consent, and health or safety protections for abortion facilities. It would force Americans to pay for abortions here and abroad with their tax dollars.

Our Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said “This proposed legislation is nothing short of child sacrifice…Any reasonable person with a basic sense of morality and inkling of decency cannot but shudder in horror at such a heinous evil being codified in law.” If you’d like to make your voice heard for the littlest among us, go here.

Wisdom 2:12, 17-20; James 3:16-4:3; Mark 9:30-37. In Wisdom, the wicked speak of testing the just one until he sins or until God intervenes. In the second reading, James says that the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace. In Mark’s Gospel, Jesus teaches about his passion but the disciples do not understand; he then demands humble service of his followers.

Domenico 25A Del Tempo Ordinario

Facendosi uomo Dio ha scelto la strada dell’umiltà e del servizio che orienta ogni uomo ad amare il prossimo, diventando fratello dei propri simili. Qualsiasi altro modo di fare allontana da Dio e dalla realizzazione della civiltà dell’amore.

 

常年期第二十五主日

 今天福音記述耶穌訓練門徒,要他們對快要臨到他們身上的一切作準備,因此再預言自己將要受的苦難,但他們世俗的心,擺脫不了祂是以色列王國的救星的觀念,完全不明白耶穌謙抑自己救贖人類的愛心,他們祇想到將來在默西亞的王國裏誰的地位最高。耶穌告訴他們 : 「誰想做第一個,就得做眾人中最末的一個,並要做眾的僕役」。(谷八:35)耶穌完全打破了世俗的觀念,因為天主重視的是人的心,祂喜愛良善心謙,甘為人僕的人。祂說誰為最弱小無能的人服務就是為祂和天父服務。這番話在祂被釘死在十字架後,門徒才真正明白了,而且一生服膺實行。

高傲怙惡的人受不了比他良善,比他優勝的人 , 他們妒忌,因為善人反映出他們的不善和高人一等的企圖,就像讀經一中所描述的,他們設法陷害善人。

雅各伯書中寫道:「那裏有嫉妒和自私,那裏就出現混亂和和各種邪惡之事」,良善心謙和犧牲的精神,使人擺脫嫉妬和紛爭。因而心平氣和,得到從上而來的智慧。

願我們都像小孩子一樣,懷有無邪的思言行為 , 容易滿足;願我們全心信賴天主,常懷感恩。

 

IL GRIGIO

Los Angeles has the Rams.
Detroit has the Lions.
Cal Berkeley has the Bear.
Miami has the Dolphins.

Our own Boys and Girls club has IL GRIGIO.

Grigio is the iconic-mysterious big dog that rescued don Bosco numberless times, we could call this mysterious animal the 007 of the saintly priest of Turin.

After having accompanied Saint John Bosco to Heaven, Grigio did not go into retirement, instead he took up more duties, the protection of the sons and daughters of Don Bosco.

On November 2nd 1893 two Salesian Sisters, Amalia Calaon and Annetta Dallara, were on their way home not too far from the famous Assisi, when they were caught by heavy fog and a fast falling night. They were afraid and they shared this fear to one another.

Amalia shared to Annetta: “Wouldn’t be nice if Don Bosco were to send us his beloved friend Grigio.” That would be quite a gift replied Annetta with audible fear in her voice.

No sooner she had said this, Lo and behold, appear a big dog from the nearby bushes, he was huffing and puffing as if he had come from quite a distance. He joined the two Sisters and walked side by side with them. He was big and gray and his eyes were shining in the darkness.

As if to calm down the two frightened Sisters, the tame big animal raised his smooth paw as if he had known them for a long time.

Arrived at the residence, the Sisters wanted to give their traveling friend something to eat, but the big gray beast turned around and they never saw him again.
