LOVE SHOWN IN ACTION  

EL AMOR ESTÁ EN LA ACCIÓN

      Do you receive the word of God with joy as the Thessalonians did? Their faith showed in their actions. They became models for other believers.

        The first reading tells us to put our faith into action. This passage is part of a long list of ordinances God commanded the Israelites to observe. God will judge us by how we treat our neighbors. God will hear the cries of any whom we neglect or mistreat and will come to their defense.

     In today’s Gospel the Pharisees put the question of God’s law to Jesus. “Which commandment of the law is the greatest?” (Matthew 22:36) How could he possibly choose from all the detailed commandments the Jews observed? He was sure to offend somebody by his answer! Of course, Jesus went right to the heart of the matter. Love is the greatest commandment—love of God and love of neighbor. Everything else is based on this.

       ¿Recibes la palabra de Dios con gozo, al igual que hicieron los tesalonicenses? Su fe se reflejó en sus acciones. Se convirtieron en ejemplo para otros creyentes.

     La primera lectura nos dice que pongamos nuestra fe en acción. Este pasaje es parte de una larga lista de reglas que Dios impone a los israelitas para su observancia y para respetar su Ley. Dios nos juzgará por cómo nosotros tratamos a nuestros semejantes. Dios escuchará los llantos de todo aquel al que desatendemos o maltratamos, y vendrá en su defensa.

    En el Evangelio de hoy, los fariseos plantean la cuestión de la Ley de Dios. “¿Cuál es el mandamiento más importante de la Ley?” (Mateo 22:36). ¿Cómo es posible que él pueda elegir de entre todos los detallados mandamientos que los judíos observaban? ¡Sin duda que ofendería a alguien con su respuesta! Sin embargo, Jesús fue derecho al grano. El amor es el más grande de todos los mandamientos, el amor de Dios y el amor del prójimo. Todo lo demás se basa en esto.

PASTOR'S MESSAGE

 

  Dear Parishioners and Friends,

 

        Next week the church will celebrate the feast of All Saints on November 1, and the feast of All Souls on November 2.

 

        This is the time that we especially remember our dear departed family members and friends.

 

          Beginning November 1st through the whole month of November, the 8:00 a.m. Mass on weekdays, and the 7:00 a.m. Mass on Sundays will be offered for the souls of our dear departed.  If you want to include in our novena of Masses the souls of your loved ones, relatives and friends, you may find envelopes available in the pews or in the parish office.

 

        I would like to remind those who have not yet participated in the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) 2014, to please consider sharing your material resources. Your contribution, regardless of amount, will go a long way to help in the  different  projects of the Diocese of San Diego.  Our participation in the ACA is evangelization in action.

 

          Thank you for being a parishioner of St. Michael.

 

                                                                                                 Fr. Manny Ediza
