From The Pastor’s Desk
Dear Members of our Parish Family, Peace and all good! In today’s Gospel (Luke 18:1-18), Jesus tells his disciples a parable about a crooked judge who is worn down by the persistent nagging of one very determined widow. It is an admonition to us, to be constant and persistent in our own prayer. So far, so good. But as I struggle with this story, I have to ask myself: Where is God in this account? Is God the judge who consistently turns a deaf ear to the call of a poor widow? Inconceivable. We are always told and reassured constantly that God hears our prayers and knows our needs even before we mention them in prayer. So, where is God in all of this? So, consider this possibility for a moment: just possibly, God’s presence may be symbolized by the poor widow bound and determined to receive justice. How about that? Imagine—that our God would be with the poor and powerless, with those struggling for justice in their lives. And how about us? Where are we in the picture? Are we with God, in solidarity with those who long for greater freedom and the recognition of their rights and personal dignity? Or are we tempted to turn a deaf ear to the persistent plea of those in need? It’s not just food for thought; it’s fuel for action. At the 10 AM Mass last Sunday, Father David Gaa, ofm, the new Executive Director at the Old Mission was on hand to concelebrate the liturgy with me. At the end of Mass, Father David gave us some great news: Starting with the First Sunday of Advent weekend (November 27 & 28), the doors of the Old Mission Church will be open to the public for prayer and worship “from sunrise to sunset” every day of the year. “There is just one mission at the Mission, “ Father David told us. “It doesn’t matter whether we are at the parish or at the Old Mission. Whether we are with the Knights of Columbus or the parish school. There is only one mission for all of us—to live and preach with our lives the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” At present, the Old Mission Church is usually accessible only through the Museum and visitors must pay at the door for entry. To commemorate this important moment in our shared history, Bishop Robert A. Brom will be with us at a special prayer service (Saturday, November 27, 4 pm). All are welcome. At the service, the Bishop will announce the beginning of a “Year of Prayer” for our entire Mission family—a call for all of us to renew our commitment to faith and to each other. We’ll announce details later. For our part, we, your Franciscan brothers (lay brothers and priests alike) are committed to bringing a renewed sense of unity to our shared mission. This process of renewal and reconciliation has already begun with the removal of the fence separating the two properties of the Parish and the Mission. Now we are, all of us, embarking upon what will

hopefully be a new era in our relationships. Of course there will be bumps in the road ahead: we still have to work out some of the details. And it will require commitment on the part of all of us. But with the help of the Lord and the guidance of the Spirit, we will keep on the path. Meanwhile, back at the ranch…we have marked still another busy weekend at the Parish. Several events, in particular, deserve mention. In the first place, we celebrated Columbus Day weekend in a big way. Last Saturday, the Knights of Columbus led the way with their successful Columbus Day (Spaghetti) Dinner. The following day, the Knights, their ladies and families, as well as the Columbian Squires were in attendance at the 10 AM Mass for their Corporate Communion, followed by a blessing at the Rachel Shrine, and later participation in our first-ever multi-cultural, multi-lingual “living” rosary procession. More than 150 parishioners, representing every major cultural grouping within the parish, were in attendance at the last-mentioned event. The Knights also distributed in excess of 5,000 complimentary rosaries to parishioners at the end of all the weekend Masses. Pete and Mae Signori undertook the gargantuan task of untangling untold boxes of beads and placing them into individual plastic bags. Many thanks! Along with the Knights, students, parents, teachers, staff, and family members from our great parish school, Old Mission Montessori, also attended the same 10 AM Mass— marking the first Parish/School Mass of the academic year. The school choir, under the direction of Lyndon Pugeda, was outstanding. Teachers and/or students also serve as greeters, lectors, altar servers, and Eucharistic ministers….. Envelopes for separate donations to the parish school were provided at all the Masses. Many thanks to all of you who contributed so generously to the support of our great parish school. I don’t have to tell you how hard it is for families to foot the bill for their children’s education these days. Commitment to Catholic education requires ever greater sacrifice in these difficult economic times. Thanks and appreciation to the members of our Parish Finance Council—in particular, Laurie Klahn, Joan Giroux, Rich Miro, and Allen Hartman—as well as Attorneys Wiley Jones and Richard Cornell, who provided vital information (and free consultations) to nearly 50 parishioners in a special workshop on wills and trusts. Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank the two anonymous donors for their generous contributions to our parish family. One donor has contributed $15,500 towards the purchase of equipment for our music ministry. The other presented us with a donation of $3,700 to help us to complete our commitment to this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal. And thanks to all of you who, on a daily basis, support our parish family by your prayers and volunteer ministry. God bless, Fr. Chuck

Parish News & Happenings
It’s time once again to turn our thoughts and hearts to those in our community who need our help to give their children a Thanksgiving Dinner worth remembering. Sadly, some of these are military families who are already shouldering an incomprehensively heavy burden. Missing a festive family day because of a lack of food should not be added to their load. As always we will screen our applicants to assure only those truly in need get added to our list. We are asking for a donation of $40.00 per family for a basket containing everything that is necessary for a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner. Since we recognize that almost every one has been negatively impacted by the current economic situation we are not setting a specific goal this year. We will do the best we can with what we receive from you. We gladly accept any donations of turkeys, hams, canned goods and other holiday goodies especially home baked cakes, pies and cookies. We would appreciate it if you would please check your cans and eliminate all out-dated, rusted, dented or obviously old cans. We can’t give those out and this will save us a lot of time. Checks may be marked “food basket” and placed in the Sunday collection. If you cannot afford to sponsor an entire family, please give what you can. Food donations may be brought to the Social Concerns Department in the Loretto House across from the McKeon Center during normal parish business hours. Thank you for your loving support of those who are in need and, as always, may God smile gently on you. Call me at extension 108 if you have any questions. Carmen Parra, Director of Social Concerns

Encountering the Religious Other
New Theology Review--May 2009

The New Theology Review is a quarterly publication of Liturgical Press. In this issue, dedicated to the theme of the “religious other,” five authors present four articles addressing the contemporary issue of inter-religious dialogue. James Fredericks writes about the Buddhist-Christian dialogue in his article “Solidarity with the Religious Other.” Examples of his own experiences with such dialogue help us to think more constructively about Buddhism’s “otherness” and welcome the religious other as our neighbor. Yvonne Haddad & Jane Smith discuss the Muslim-Christian interface in “In Search for a Common Word.” These women note that much of Muslim-Christian dialogue in the last half century has been informal and local. Recently more formal dialogues have grown across Christian denominations & through Muslim initiatives. Lawrence Frizzell writes of the Christian & Jewish experience in “The Religious Other as Neighbor.” Valuable lessons can be learned from their painful history of antagonism. And Jean-Pierre Ruiz presents “From Disputation to Dialogue” in which Jews and Latinos pursue a new understanding of a “convivencia”—living together in America after their complex history of grudging intolerance that began in medieval Spain and survives today.

The Comparison for this same period in 2009: Sunday Collection: Electronic Fund Donation: Total Sunday Collection: $17,754.00 $809.50 $18,563.50

***************** This fiscal year’s weekly goal is: $20,575.00 Our weekly year to date average is $19,993.00 ******************

Our prayers and Eucharistic celebration for next weekend are directed in a special way toward our brothers and sisters throughout the world who are waiting to hear the joyous “Good News” of Jesus. Our offerings, through the Society of the Propagation of the Faith, will support the work and witness of those who selflessly give up all for the sake of our Lord and His Gospel—the local priests, Religious and lay catechists who daily provide loving service to the poor and suffering of Developing World.

THE CATHOLIC PRAYER BIBLE LECTIO DIVINA EDITION Reflective reading of the Scriptures to lead us into prayer is a long standing practice in the church. One of the oldest methods is called Lectio Divina, from the Latin “Divine Reading”. The Catholic Prayer BIBLE Lectio Divina Edition is available in our Parish Sunday Bookstore or through Bill Bischoff in our Parish Center. The parish was able to purchase this bible at a special rate. Normally the price is $29.95 but we are able to sell it for our cost of $20.00. The Parish Sunday Bookstore is open after the 8:00 am, and 10 am Masses in the entry of the Serra Center. Please drop by! We are in need of volunteers to help with the bookstore at both the 8 am and 10 am masses. If you are interested please call Penny at 760-433-3731 or Bill at 760-547-0702

Stewardship Message
“…be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient...” - 2 Timothy 4:2

It is not always convenient to be a good steward, especially when all the temptations of our busy and materialistic world get in the way. Yet, we must be persistent even when it is inconvenient. This persistence marks follower of Christ.

Prayer Makes All The Difference

Nourishment for the Soul
First Reading -- As long as Moses' hands were kept uplifted, Joshua and his men had the better part of the battle with Amalek (Exodus 17:8-13). Psalm -- Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth (Psalm 121). Second Reading -- Remain faithful; proclaim the word; be persistent whether it is convenient or not (2 Timothy 3:14 -- 4:2). Gospel -- God will secure the rights of the chosen who call out day and night (Luke 18:1-8).

As the end of the liturgical calendar draws near the liturgy focuses more and more on the end of time. This week we are reminded that God's ultimate victory may be a long way off. Perseverance in prayer, proclamation, and work will be needed along the way. The characters in today's readings can serve as role models for us on the long journey of discipleship. In the reading from Exodus Joshua does not give up fighting, Moses does not give up praying, and Aaron and Hur do not give up supporting him until the victory is won. In the Gospel story the widow does not stop begging until justice is done. As the letter to Timothy urges, we are to "be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient" until the coming of "Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead" (2 Timothy 4:2, 1).

October 17, 2010 — Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time | 7

Estimados Miembros de la Familia Parroquial, ¡Paz y Todo Bien!
En el Evangelio de hoy (Lucas 18:1-18), Jesús les cuenta a sus discípulos una parábola sobre un juez deshonesto que está agobiado por la persistencia de una viuda muy insistente. Esto es una advertencia para que nosotros seamos persistentes y consecuentes en nuestras plegarias. Hasta aquí, todo está bien: Pero yo tengo problemas con esta narración y me pregunto a mi mismo: ¿Dónde está Dios en esta situación? ¿Es Dios el juez que presta un oído sordo consistentemente al llamado de una viuda pobre? Inconcebible. A nosotros se nos dice siempre y se nos asegura constantemente que Dios escucha nuestras plegarias, siempre sabe nuestras necesidades, aún antes de nosotros mencionárselas a El en oración. ¿Así pues, dónde está Dios en todo esto? Por eso, consideren esta posibilidad por un momento: posiblemente, la presencia de Dios puede estar simbolizada por la viuda pobre abrumada y determinada a recibir justicia. ¿Qué les parece? Imagínense—que nuestro Dios estuviera con el pobre y necesitado, con aquellos que están luchando por lograr justicia en sus vidas. ¿Y qué tal sobre nosotros? ¿Dónde estamos nosotros en este cuadro? ¿Estamos nosotros con Dios, en solidaridad con aquellos que ansían tener más libertad y más reconocimiento de sus derechos y de su dignidad personal? ¿O estamos tentados a prestar un oído sordo al pedido persistente de los necesitados? No es solo el pensarlo, es ponerlo en acción. La Misa de 10AM del domingo pasado, el Padre David Gaa, ofm, Director Ejecutivo nuevo de la Misión de San Luis Rey, concelebró conmigo la liturgia. Al final de la Misa Padre David nos dió una noticia muy buena: Comenzando con el Primer Domingo de Adviento, (el fin de semana del 27 y 28 de noviembre, las puertas de la Vieja Misión permanecerán abiertas para el público para oración y adoración “desde el amanecer hasta el atardecer” todos los días del año. Padre David nos dijo: “Solo hay una misión en la Misión.” “No importa donde nosotros estamos, ya sea en la parroquia o en la Misión Vieja. Ya sea con los Caballeros de Colón o en la escuela parroquial. Solo hay una misión para nosotros llevar a cabo—vivir y predicar con nuestras vidas el Evangelio de Jesucristo.” Actualmente la Iglesia de la Misión Vieja está accesible solo a través del Museo y los visitantes pagan a la puerta de entrada. Para celebrar y recordar este momento importante en nuestra historia compartida, el Obispo Robert A. Brom estará con nosotros en un servicio de oración especial el sábado, 27 de noviembre a las 4:00PM. Todos están invitados. Durante el servicio, el Obispo anunciará el comienzo de un “Año de Oración” para nuestra familia entera de la Misión—una llamada a todos a renovar nuestro compromiso de fe y de unos hacia otros. Nosotros les anunciaremos los detalles más tarde. Por nuestra parte, nosotros, sus hermanos Franciscanos (hermanos laicos y sacerdotes unidos) estamos comprometidos a traer un sentido de unidad renovada a nuestra misión la cual compartimos. Este proceso de renovación y de reconciliación ya se ha iniciado al eliminar la cerca de alambre que separaba las dos propiedades de la Parroquia y de la Misión. Ahora nosotros, todos, estamos envolviéndonos en lo que esperamos que sea una era nueva en nuestras relaciones. Claro que pueden surgir tropiezos en el camino que recorremos: nosotros aún tendremos que resolver algunos detalles. Y todo esto requerirá un compromiso de parte de todos nosotros. Claro que con la ayuda del Señor y la guía del Espíritu Santo, nos mantendremos en el camino. Mientras tanto… nosotros aún tuvimos un fin de semana bien activo. Varios eventos en particular merecen ser mencionados. En primer lugar, nosotros celebramos el Día de Cristóbal Colón en forma grande. El sábado pasado los Caballeros de Colón iniciaron la celebración con su Comida de Pasta la cual fue un éxito. El día siguiente, los Caballeros, sus esposas y familias incluyendo los escuderos, asistieron a la Misa de 10:00AM para su Celebración de Comunión, seguidos por la bendición del Santuario de Raquel y luego participaron en nuestro rosario “vivo”, multi-cultural y de múltiples lenguas. Más de 150 feligreses, representando cada grupo cultural parroquial, asistieron al evento. Los Caballeros de Colón repartieron más de 5,000 rosarios a los feligreses al final de las Misas del fin de semana. Pete y Mae Signori llevaron a cabo la labor inmensa de desenredar los rosarios de un sinnúmero de cajas y colocarlos en bolsas plásticas individuales. ¡Mil Gracias! Junto con los Caballeros, los estudiantes, padres, maestros, personal y familiares de nuestra familia escolar de la Misión Vieja de Montessori, también asistieron a la Misa de 10:00AM—celebrando la Primera Misa Escolar del año académico. El coro escolar, bajo la dirección de Lyndon Pugeda, fue excelente. Los maestros y los estudiantes también sirvieron como lectores, acólitos, dando la bienvenida y como ministros de Eucaristía… Se proveyeron sobres para donaciones especiales para la escuela parroquial en todas las Misas. Muchas gracias a todos los que contribuyeron tan generosamente para apoyar a nuestra gran escuela parroquial. No tengo que decirles lo fuerte que consiste para las familias el costo de la educación de sus hijos en estos días. El Compromiso a la Educación Católica conlleva un sacrificio mayor más aún en estos tiempos económicos tan difíciles. Mil gracias y gran apreciación a los Miembros del Consejo Financiero Parroquial, particularmente a Laurie Klahn, Joan Giroux, Rich Miro y Allen Hartman—al igual que a los abogados Wiley Jones y Richard Cornell, que proveyeron información vital (y consultas gratis) a más de 50 feligreses en un taller especial sobre testamentos y fideicomisos. Por último, y no por eso menos importante, yo desearía agradecer a dos donantes anónimos por sus contribuciones generosas a nuestra familia parroquial. Un donante contribuyó $15,500 hacia la compra de equipo para nuestro ministerio de música: El otro donante aportó la suma de $3,700 para ayudar a completar nuestro compromiso de este año a la Petición Católica Anual. Y gracias a todos ustedes que diariamente apoyan a nuestra familia parroquial con sus oraciones y sus ministerios voluntarios.

Muchas gracias, Padre Chuck (Carlos) Talley, ofm
