STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION FOR THE
WEEK OF OCTOBER 12/REFLEXIÓN DE LA
CORRESPONSABILIDAD PARA LA SEMANA
DEL 12 DE OCTUBRE
If we received an invitation to a royal wedding feast, it is likely we might
be flattered and make every effort to attend. Yet none of those invited by
the King in today’s Parable of the Wedding Feast attend. In fact, they refuse
twice and then actually mistreat those who bring the invitation. Jesus was
very careful with what He said and communicated in His parables. What
then is His real message here, and how does it apply to us? Each of us has
been invited to the Feast, in fact to several feasts. Mass, the Eucharist, is indeed a Feast. Yet, as we know, many do not respond to the Lord’s invitation
to join Him at the table. Even those who do respond may not always keep
in mind both the importance and the love behind this Feast.
God invites us in so many ways to become close to Him, to answer His invitation and to embrace stewardship as a way of life. This invitation comes
to us constantly through Holy Scripture and through the Gospel. How
many of us hear the Word, but then just go back to our lives as they were
before? That is what is happening in this parable. Those invited ignore the
invitation and continue with their lives. The key message from Jesus is that
it does not matter if we respond to God’s invitation with anger or indifference; they are equally grave reactions.

Si recibimos una invitación a una fiesta de boda real, lo más probable es
que podríamos sentirnos halagados y hacer todo lo posible para asistir.
Sin embargo, ninguno de los invitados por el Rey en la Parábola de hoy
de la Fiesta de Bodas asistió. De hecho, se niegan dos veces y luego en
realidad maltratan a los que traen la invitación. Jesús fue muy cuidadoso
con lo que dijo y como se comunicó en sus Parábolas. ¿Cuál es entonces
su verdadero mensaje, y cómo se aplica a nosotros? Cada uno de nosotros
ha sido invitado a la fiesta, de hecho a varias fiestas. Misa, la Eucaristía, es
de hecho una fiesta. Sin embargo, como sabemos, muchos no responden
a la invitación del Señor a unirse a él en la mesa. Incluso aquellos que no
responden pueden no siempre tener en cuenta la importancia y el amor
detrás de esta Fiesta.
Dios nos invita en tantas maneras de volver a acercarse a Él, para responder a su invitación y abrazar la corresponsabilidad como una forma de vida.
Esta invitación nos llega constantemente a través de las Sagradas Escrituras
y por medio del Evangelio. ¿Cuántos de nosotros escuchan la Palabra, pero
luego volvemos de nuevo a nuestras vidas como era antes? Eso es lo que
está sucediendo en esta parábola. Los que fueron invitados ignoraron la
invitación y continuaron con sus vidas. El mensaje clave de Jesús es que no
importa si respondemos a la invitación de Dios con enojo o indiferencia;
son reacciones igualmente graves.

fr. James C. Ries
Dear Parishioners and Friends of Our Lady of Fatima,/
Queridos parroquianos y amigos de Nuestra Señora de Fátima,
God wants the best for us. He desires greatly for us to feel blessed. One way we think we are
blessed is through material or societal things. You may have seen the bumper sticker, “He who
dies with the most toys wins.” Or we think that being famous or popular will bring us happiness.
If this is the happiness we seek then we will never be satisfied and always be chasing.
St. Paul today says he’s experienced both sides in his life, but it did not matter now because Jesus
is with him. The joy, the peace, we receive from Jesus is inside. It can never be taken away. True
happiness, eternal joy, can only come from God.
On another note, we had neglected to introduce Fr. Sebastian Walshe, O.Praem. Fr. Sebastian is
a Norbertine Father. He lives at St. Michael’s Abbey in Silverado, CA on El Toro Rd. Fr. Francis Gloudeman, the son of OLF parishioners Joe (now deceased) and Jan Gloudeman, is also a
Norbertine Father. The Norbertine Fathers main charism is in education, so they operate several
schools in the area. They are also free on Sunday mornings to help celebrate Masses at local parishes that need a little help. This is why Fr. Sebastian has been joining us each Sunday morning.
Fr. Sebastian will also be leading a monthly open forum on questions about Church teachings that
is open to all.
God bless you all!
Fr. Jim
Dios quiere lo mejor para nosotros. El desea mucho que nos sientamos bendecidos. Una manera
en que pensamos que somos bendecidos es a través de las cosas materiales o sociales. Es posible
que hayan visto la calcomanía: “El que muere con más juguetes gana.” O piensan que ser famoso
o popular nos traerá la felicidad. Si esta es la felicidad que buscamos entonces nunca estaremos
satisfechos y siempre seguiremos buscando aún más.
San Pablo nos dice hoy que ha experimentado ambos lados en su vida, pero eso no importaba
ahora porque Jesús está con él. La alegría, la paz que recibimos de Jesús está en el interior. Nunca
puede ser quitado. La verdadera felicidad, la alegría eterna, sólo puede venir de Dios.
Dios los Bendiga a todos!
Padre Jim
