~ Pastor’s Corner ~
Giving to God What Belongs to God
I have mentioned before how Jesus was very cagey when he had the religious leaders of his day produce the Roman coin. By doing so, he exposed their duplicity. The
coin had on it the image of Caesar who had declared himself divine. By having the
coin in their possession they were guilty of a subtle type of idolatry.
But what about his admonition to them: “Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God
what belongs to God?” My observation is that more often then not, we will concentrate on the first
part of the teaching and neglect the second.
The verse is very often used to instruct Christians that we have a civic duty to pay our taxes and
to engage in the public process for the building up of a just society. The upcoming election is certainly a very good opportunity to do so. We not only have the right as citizens, but the duty as Christians
to be part of the electoral process. Furthermore, we have the grave responsibility to vote with a wellformed conscience. We must learn what the Church has to say about the issues at hand, the principles involved and the positions of the various candidates in relation to the seven themes of Catholic
Social Teaching (i.e. 1.) respect for life and dignity of the human person, 2.) the call to family, community and participation in society, 3.) rights and their concomitant responsibilities, 4.) the preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, 5.) the dignity of work and the rights of workers, 6.) solidarity, and 7.) stewardship of creation.) We must be careful that we do not vote our emotions or because
we like the way a certain candidate looks, or his or her eloquence of speaking.
So, it is important to “repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar”, but do we do so at the neglect of
repaying to God belongs to God? Think about it. What belongs to God? Or to put it a better way: is
there anything that does NOT belong to God?
Before I became a priest, I was very involved in the business community. The illusion of ownership works well for the ordering of commerce and the building up of families and society. However,
ultimately we have to realize that none of us actually “owns” anything. Our time, our talents, our
will, our intellect, our material resources...all of these are gifts from God. At then end of this life we
will be asked to give an accounting of how we utilized the gifts we were given in this life. We will be
asked to repay to God what belongs to God. If we have been good stewards, then we will give it all
back to the Lord with increase, having left the world just a little bit better off than we found it. Could
we really ask for anything more? Could God?

quiet time. Fr. Luz Flores, HSC pastoral director, will explore how we express our faith
in our lives; how the richness of our individual cultures, traditions and values interplay
with our experiences; and how we can respect
and accept other faiths while remaining true
to our own. Time for reflection, a healing service, Mass, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, Adoration, and an opportunity for the sacrament
of reconciliation. Friday, Oct 31, 7pm,

Moral Dilemmas of Partisanship, Wednesday, October 22, 7-8:30pm, at Holy Spirit
Center. Pope Francis has stated that politics
is one of the highest forms of charity, because
it serves the common good in humility and
love. But does today’s extreme partisanship
express humility and love? Can public officials make choices of conscience which vary
from their party’s “no-challenges” positions? Explore with us how faith can influence our political culture.
Holy Spirit Center Men's Group next meets
on Saturday, 10/25, from 7 – 9 AM in the
HSC Resurrection Chapel. Share Mass, light
breakfast and coffee, and a discussion of
“Faith – when God seems absent, indifferent,
or hostile” from Searching for the Invisible
God. Feel free to come any week. For info
contact John Goll ([email protected]) or HSC
at (907) 346-2343.
This weekend is the World Mission Sunday
special collection. Catholics are invited to reach

our own Archdiocese. Your prayers and generous
gifts support the work of priests, religious, and
lay leaders who offer the poor practical assistance
and the experience of God’s love and mercy.
Please be as generous as you can with today’s
collection.
