En estos días no es difícil imaginar tener que elegir entre la renta
o atención médica, alimentación o el transporte, las facturas de la
casa o la ropa para los niños. Muchos estadounidenses se ven
obligados a estas elecciones por un reciente despido,
congelamiento del salario o reducción del fondo de jubilación.
Para 37 millones de estadounidenses que viven por debajo de la
línea de la pobreza, las opciones no hacen más que disminuir. La
Campaña Católica para el Desarrollo Humano marca una
diferencia en las comunidades de bajos ingresos financiando
programas que abordan las causas fundamentales de la pobreza.
(Ningunos de los fondos de esta colecta van a apoyar a la
organización ACORN). Más que nunca la Campaña Católica para
el Desarrollo Humano necesita su apoyo. Gracias por su
generosidad.
BOOK OF THE DEAD
In the Chapel of the Martyrs (right of altar), we have positioned
the Book of the Dead with a candle and modest flowers. Please
write the names of loved ones you wish to remember in this
book. If you would like to make an offering, you will find
offering envelopes by the small sign pointing to the poor box
where you may place your offerings. These All Souls envelopes
will remain on the Cathedral Altar throughout November as an
outward sign of our mutual, concerted, and ongoing
remembrance of All the Faithful Departed.
CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN FOR HUMAN
DEVELOPMENT TODAY
These days it is not hard to imagine having to choose between
rent or health care, food or transportation, household bills or
clothing for your children. For many Americans, these choices
are forced by a recent layoff, pay freeze, or retirement fund
decrease. For 37 million Americans who live below the poverty
line, the options are only diminishing. The Catholic Campaign
for Human Development (CCHD) makes a difference in lowincome communities by funding programs that address the root
causes of poverty. (No local or national ACORN organizations
are funded by this collection). More than ever, CCHD needs your
support. Thank you for your generosity.
RESPECT LIFE MINISTRY UPDATES!
We will be outside after masses having our Advent wreath
fundraiser. Please stop by our table to get your wreath and/or
candles.

ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL 2014 “REPORT OF GRATITUDE”
Bishop Soto invites all parishioners to view the 2014
Annual Catholic Appeal “Report of Gratitude” by visiting
www.tcfsac.org. “Every time a family has a breakthrough,
a child finds safety and hope, a marginalized individual
finds the strength to rebuild a life of dignity, a seminarian
moves closer to ordination, or a student is able to stay in
Catholic School, we think of you, our donors. Thank you
for your support this year. Please
take a moment to see the difference
you’ve made in 2014.” The 2014
Appeal is approaching $3 million
from nearly 19,000 Catholics in
our diocese. The Appeal Office is
still accepting donations for 2014. Please donate online by
visiting www.tcfsac.org. 25% comes back to our parish for
our own outreach to people who need our help.

LLAMADO CATÓLICO ANUAL 2014 “INFORME DE AGRADECIMIENTO”

resuelve un problema, que un niño encuentra seguridad y
esperanza, que un marginado encuentra fuerzas para
rehacer una vida digna, que un seminarista se acerca a su
ordenación sacerdotal, o que un estudiante puede seguir
educándose en una escuela católica, pensamos en ustedes,
nuestros donantes. Gracias por su apoyo este año. Por
favor, tomen un momento para ver la diferencia que han
hecho en el 2014.” El Llamado 2014 se aproxima a los $3

OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE
Serve
Ez 34:11-12,15-17. 1 Cor 15:20-26,28 • Mt 25:31-46
T
he world is a mess, and it is frightening. Hamas wants to
destroy Israel, and Israel voraciously defends itself.
Rockets have flown everywhere, and hundreds of innocent
people have died. ISIS wants to create an Islamic state in which
there will be no room for anyone but Muslims. Christians in Iraq
have been killed by the hundreds and forced to flee by the
hundreds of thousands in the largest flight of people in history.
Pro-Russian separatists seek to divide Ukraine, and hundreds have
been killed. The political and social atmosphere in our own country
is one of absolutism and anger.
The United States Congress
could not even pass a resolution
to congratulate Pope Francis on
his election.
exiles, and it remains a message of hope for us.
It was the practice in Palestine to mix sheep and goats in the
daytime. In the evening the sheep and goats had to be separated
because goats are intolerant of cold and had to be kept warm.
Sheep on the other hand preferred the open air. Overall, however,
sheep got better treatment because they were more commercially
valuable. This parable makes Jesus’ point of view clear: At the end
of time Jesus will do some separating himself.
Notably, there is no mention in
the parable of anyone doing evil;
rather, the parable speaks of
neglect. We are often guilty of
neglect, of not being moved by
the needs of others or of failing to
help even [when] we notice
others’ needs.
Most distressing is knowledge
that there is an extremely
noticeable decline in the moral
influence of religion in our
country. We are clearly in need
of a new direction.
Today’s solemnity offers us a
guide for a better tomorrow. While
the solemnity of Christ the King
points us toward the Second
Coming of Christ in glory, it also
offers us a blueprint for how
followers of Christ can make a
difference in the world right now.
Ezekiel’s world was in no less
turmoil and pain. Ezekiel was
among some 8,000 exiles taken
to Babylon after the fall of
Jerusalem around 598 B.C. The
SHEEP
prophet complained bitterly
about the moral decline of Judah, believing it precipitated the fall
of Jerusalem and the exile. The people had fallen away from the
authentic practices of their faith in God. Ezekiel told the people
that they had gotten what they deserved for having fallen away
from practicing their faith!
Ezekiel laid particular blame for the exile at the feet of the kings of
Judah. The prophet decried the abysmal moral values of the kings
and other leaders of Judah. They were supposed to have been
shepherds of God’s people, caring for them, guiding them and
being their finest example of living out the Jewish faith. In our
passage from Ezekiel today, the prophet tells us that God was so
disgusted with the leadership of Judah that He himself would
become the shepherd of the people. It was a message of hope for the
GOATS
On this celebration of Christ the
King, as we see the perfect ruler
against whom all leaders—in
fact all of us—should compare
ourselves, we might ponder a
more humble title for this day:
Christ the Deacon. Those who
“are accused” had to ask when
they had failed Jesus: “When did
we see you … and not minister
to your needs?” The word here
for minister is the same word for
deacon, the word for service. The
first meaning of “diakonos” (the
noun) is “table waiter,” and
waiting on tables was held to be
one of the lowest jobs possible.
The verb form of the word can
be translated many ways, but its
primary use is “to serve.”
This is the model Jesus gives us, the model that will save us and
change the world: Serve! First, notice those in need just as a
shepherd notices sheep that are lost or in need. Second, do
something about it! Those who are cursed by the Son of Man are
those who fail to serve, those who fail to take care of those in need.
Just as Jesus has served us, so should we serve.
Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In
all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all
the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as
ever you can.—John Wesley
