Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 14, 2012
The word of God is living and effective,
sharper than any two-edged sword.
— Hebrews 4:12a
From the Padre’s Desk:
My Dear Friends:
In today’s readings, we discover that material wealth alone does not keep us from discipleship. We will see that
there are other gifts more important than material wealth, but even so, it is how we use our gifts that matters most.
Today’s scriptures point to the value of the gifts of wisdom, trusting in God, and letting our actions reflect
the love of God from within. It is not gold that causes us to fall, but rather the desire for gold above all other things.
From the readings in Wisdom and Hebrews, we find the source of God’s gifts in our lives. Wisdom is more valuable
than worldly possessions. In Hebrews, we are challenged to look at our own values and admit honestly what controls

Our Cathedral PRAYER
Almighty Father, source of all holiness, through the resurrection of your Son,
One Faith Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit you have brought us together by your
One People providential love in one faith, as one people.
Fill us now with your grace as we build our new Cathedral.
May it be a temple of true worship, where the faithful will become living
stones; renewed through your Word, nourished with your Most Holy Eucharist and
strengthened by your graces.
With our Mother Mary to guide us, may our prayers be endless, our work
be tireless, and our giving, selfless; so that today, and in days to come, this new
Cathedral we build, dedicated to the Most Holy Name of your Son, will reflect His
Light and reveal His love, to all our Diocese and the Church throughout the world,
for your greater honor and glory.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns
forever and ever. AMEN.
Blessed by the Most Holy Name of Jesus…BOTH NOW AND FOREVER

to learn more about our courageous forebears in the faith and even consider making a pilgrimage to one of the many
shrines and devotional sites throughout the United States.
BIBLE STUDY: We will be having a Bible study in Spanish every Friday at 7pm in the basement of the Rectory.
SECOND COLLECTION: The second collection for Saturday, October 13 and 14 is for the World Mission Collection.

collection taking place in October 1927. The Mission Sunday collection is always taken on the next to last Sunday during
the month of October. That day is celebrated in all the local Churches as the feast of catholicity and universal solidarity
so Christians the world over will recognize their common responsibility with regard to the evangelization of the world.
