1st Reading: Is 5:1-7
Let me sing for my beloved my lovesong about his vineyard.

My beloved had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. He dug it up, cleared the stones, and planted the choicest vines. He built there a watchtower and hewed out a wine press as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only wild grapes. Now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. What more was there to do that I have not done for my vineyard? Good grapes was the yield I expected. Why did it yield only sour grapes? Now I will let you know what I am going to do with my vineyard: I will remove its hedge and it will be burned; I will break down its wall and it will be trampled on. I will make it a wasteland, I will neither prune nor hoe it, and briers and thorns will grow there. I command the clouds, as well, not to send rain on it. The vineyard of Yahweh Sabaoth is the people of Israel; and the people of Judah are his pleasant vine. He looked for justice, but found bloodshed; He looked for righteousness but heard cries of distress.

2nd Reading: Phil 4:6-9
Do not be anxious about anything. In everything, resort to prayer and supplication, together, with thanksgiving, and bring your requests before God. Then, the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is truthful, holy, just, pure, lovely and noble. Be mindful of whatever deserves praise and admiration. Put into practice what you have learned from me, what I passed on to you, what you heard from me or saw me doing, and the God of peace will be with you.

Gospel: Mt 21:33-43
Listen to another example: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a fence around it, dug a hole for the wine press, built a watchtower, leased the vineyard to tenants, and then, went to a distant country. When harvest time came, the landowner sent his servants to the tenants to collect his share of the harvest. But the tenants seized his servants, beat one, killed another, and stoned a third.

Again, the owner sent more servants; but they were treated in the same way.

Finally, he sent his son, thinking, ‘They will respect my son.‘ But when the tenants saw the son, they thought, ‘This is the one who is to inherit the vineyard. Let us kill him, and his inheritance will be ours.‘ So they seized him, threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.

Now, what will the owner of the vineyard do with the tenants when he comes?” They said to him, ”He will bring those evil men to an evil end, and lease the vineyard to others, who will pay him in due time.”

And Jesus replied, ”Have you never read what the Scriptures say? The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This was the Lord‘s doing, and we marvel at it. Therefore I say to you: the kingdom of heaven will be taken from you, and given to a people who will produce its fruit.

Reflection:
Both the first and the third readings speak of the ingratitude of the people of God towards Him who has brought them into being and provides for them on a daily basis. The second reading invites us to fill our minds with noble virtues so that we bear good fruits and remain in peace with God. How disheartening it is to receive ingratitude and hate in return for doing good? It has been the fate of many good men and women who pledged their lives in service of others. However, many of them continued to do good despite negative treatment because their hearts were filled with whatever is truthful, holy, just, pure, lovely, and noble, and they had the peace of God. How do we compare with them?

Pray for the peace of God to reign in your heart.

Do an act of good without expecting gratitude or favors.

St. John Leonardi

1st Reading: Jon 1:1–2:1-2, 11
The word of Yahweh came to Jonah, son of Amittai, “Go to Nineveh, the great city, and preach against it, because I have known its wickedness.” But Jonah decided to flee from Yahweh and go to Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, found a ship bound for Tarshish, and paid the fare. Then he boarded it and went into the hold of the ship, journeying with them to Tarshish, far away from Yahweh.

Yahweh stirred up a storm wind on the sea, so there was a sea tempest, which threatened to destroy the ship. The sailors took fright, and each cried out to his own god. To lighten the ship, they threw its cargo into the sea.

Meanwhile Jonah had gone into the hold of the ship, where he lay fast asleep. The captain came upon him and said, “How can you sleep? Get up and call on your god. Perhaps he will be mindful of us and will not allow us to die here.”

The sailors said to each other, “Let us cast lots to find out who is responsible for this disaster.” So they did, and the lot fell on Jonah.

They questioned him, “So you are responsible for this evil that has come upon us? Tell us where you are from. What is your country, your nationality?” And Jonah told them his story, “I am a Hebrew and I worship Yahweh, God of heaven who made the sea and the land….”

As they knew that he was fleeing from Yahweh, the sailors were seized with great fear and said to him, “What a terrible thing have you done!” “What shall we do with you now, to make the sea calm down?” The sea was growing more and more agitated.

He said to them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea. It will quiet down, for I know it is because of me that this storm has come.”

The sailors, however, still did their best to row back to land. But they could not, for the sea had grown much rougher than before. Then they called on Yahweh, “O Yahweh, do not let us perish for taking this man’s life. Do not hold us guilty of shedding innocent blood. For you, Yahweh, have done this as you have thought right.” They took Jonah and threw him overboard, and the raging sea grew calm again. At this the men were seized with great fear of Yahweh. They offered a sacrifice to Yahweh and made vows to him.

Yahweh provided a large fish which swallowed Jonah. He remained in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights.

From the belly of the fish Jonah prayed to Yahweh, his God: Then Yahweh gave his command to the fish, and it belched out Jonah onto dry land.

Gospel: Lk 10:25-37
Then a teacher of the law came and began putting Jesus to the test. And he said, ”Master, what shall I do to receive eternal life?” Jesus re plied, ”What is written in the law? How do you understand it?” The man answered, ”It is written: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind. And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus replied, ”What a good answer! Do this and you shall live.” The man wanted to justify his question, so he asked, ”Who is my neighbor?”

Jesus then said, ”There was a man going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him, beat him and went off, leaving him half-dead.

It happened that a priest was going along that road and saw the man, but passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite saw the man, and passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan also was going that way; and when he came upon the man, he was moved with compassion. He went over to him, and cleaned his wounds with oil and wine, and wrapped them in bandages. Then he put him on his own mount, and brought him to an inn, where he took care of him.

The next day, he had to set off; but he gave two silver coins to the innkeeper, and said, ‘Take care of him, and whatever you spend on him, I will repay when I return.‘”

Jesus then asked, ”Which of these three, do you think, made himself neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The teacher of the law answered, ”The one who had mercy on him.” And Jesus said, ”Then go and do the same.”

Reflection:
What happened to Jonah in the first reading, reminds me of the prophet Jeremiah. He was called by God: ”I chose before I gave you life and before you were born I selected you to be a prophet to the nations (Jer. 1:5). Jeremiah was refusing the Lord: ”I do not know how to speak: I am too young” (Jer.1:6). The Lord did not accept Jeremiah‘s reason. The Lord said to him: ”Do not say you are too young… I send you and tell them everything I command you” Jer.1:7). Jonah was running away from the Lord because he did not want to go to Nineveh and to preach to the Ninevites as the Lord has asked him. He wanted to escape to Tarshish. However, the Lord did something to pursue his plan. A turbulent storm prohibited him to pursue his plan. For the safety of everyone on the boat, he was thrown into the sea. The Lord however, sent a large fish and swallowed him. After three days the fish spewed Jonah on the shore of Nineveh. There he preached as the Lord planned. The people repented and adored the Lord.

It is far from the mind of God to be vindictive. He allows evil things to happen not as a punishment but as means to realize His plan. Take note, God‘s plan is different from ours. But it is best for us. What happened to Jonah simply showed that God has the plan and is determined to pursue it until it is done. To fulfill it, He calls each one to be his collaborator. Each one has his own calling, a vocation, a task to perform. That call makes each one a unique person, an irreplaceable one, a precious treasure. No matter how little we can do and give. It will always count.

1st Reading: Jon 3:1-10
The word of Yahweh came to Jonah a second time: ”Go to Nineveh, the great city, and announce to them the message I give you.”

In obedience to the word of Yahweh, Jonah went to Nineveh. It was a very large city, and it took three days just to cross it. So Jonah walked a single day‘s journey and began proclaiming, ”Forty days more and Nineveh will be destroyed.”

The people of the city believed God. They declared a fast, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.

Upon hearing the news, the king of Nineveh got up from his throne, took off his royal robe, put on sackcloth and sat down in ashes. He issued a proclamation throughout Nineveh: ”By the decree of the king and his nobles, no people or beasts, herd or flock, will taste anything; neither will they eat nor drink. But let people and beasts be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call aloud to God, turn from his evil ways and violence. Who knows? God may yet relent, turn from his fierce anger and spare us.”

When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he had compassion and did not carry out the destruction he had threatened upon them.

Gospel: Lk 10:38-42
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he entered a village, and a woman called Martha welcomed him to her house. She had a sister named Mary, who sat down at the Lord‘s feet to listen to his words. Martha, meanwhile, was busy with all the serving, and finally she said, ”Lord, don‘t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work? Tell her to help me!”

But the Lord answered, ”Martha, Martha, you worry and are troubled about many things, whereas only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the better part, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Reflection:
The family of the two sisters, Mary and Martha, is very close to Jesus. Their house in Bethany is the resting place of Jesus every time He goes to Jerusalem and in His return from Jerusalem. They had their brother Lazarus whom Jesus wept over when he died. They were intimate friends of Jesus. Mary and Martha, though they were sisters and living together are different from each other. Some identifies Martha as the icon of work and Mary as icon of prayer. Others say that Martha represents the active life and Mary represents the contemplative life as far as vocation is concerned in the spiritual realm or journey. Others would even say that their lives are too different from each other.

Both Mary and Martha would like to serve Jesus the best in their own particular ways. Their way of serving Jesus reminds me of a question once asked to me in a retreat for high school graduating students: Which is better? action or prayer? A good discussion came out of this question which even resulted to debate. One says action is good. In fact claims that work is prayer. Another says that prayer is good. Prayer is a communion with God. Nothing else is more important than being exclusively with God. All their realizations are good and right. However, St. James says: ”Prayer without action is nothing and work without prayer is nothing but a simple activity” (cf Jas. 2:14-20). Jesus exhorted: ”Away from me can do nothing. With me you can do everything” (Jn. 15:6). The services done by Martha and Mary are complementary. St. Gregory commented that Martha complained against Mary to teach her to work too not only pray. She was asking help because she wanted to finish serving so that she could now pray (talk and to listen to Jesus). This gospel narrative reminds all that a person of God is both active and contemplative.

St. John XXIII

1st Reading: Jon 4:1-11
But Jonah was greatly displeased at this, and he was indignant. He prayed to Yahweh and said, ”O Yahweh, is this not what I said when I was yet in my own country? This is why I fled to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and full of love, and you relent from imposing terrible punishment. I beseech you now, Yahweh, to take my life, for now it is better for me to die than to live.” But Yahweh replied, ”What right have you to be angry?”

Jonah then left the city. He went to a place east of it, built himself a shelter and sat under its shade to wait and see what would happen to Nineveh. Then Yahweh God provided a castor-oil plant and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade over his head and to ease his discomfort. Jonah was very happy about the plant.

But the next day, at dawn, God sent a worm which attacked the plant and made it wither. When the sun rose, God sent a scorching east wind; the sun blazed down upon Jonah‘s head, and he grew faint. His death wish returned and he said, ”It is better for me to die than to live.”

Then God asked Jonah, ”Do you have a right to be angry about the castor-oil plant?” Jonah answered, ”I am right to be angry enough to wish to die.”

Yahweh said, ”You are concerned about a plant which cost you no labor to make it grow. Overnight it sprang up, and overnight it perished. But Nineveh has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot distinguish right from left and they have many cattle as well. Should I not be concerned for such a great city?”

Gospel: Lk 11:1-4
One day, Jesus was praying in a certain place; and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, ”Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.” And Jesus said to them, ”When you pray, say this: Father, may your name be held holy, may your kingdom come; give us, each day, the kind of bread we need, and forgive us our sins; for we also forgive all who do us wrong; and do not bring us to the test.”

Reflection:
”Lord teach us to pray” was the humble request of one of His disciples as he saw Jesus in deep prayer. The disciple must have difficulties in praying or as we call must be suffering dryness in prayer. He wanted to pray as Jesus prayed. Jesus taught him His prayer. What did Jesus teach his disciple? I am sure among others are the following:

First, these lines which we used to sing when we were minor seminarians; ”Prayer is the key to heaven. But, prayer without faith is like a boat without an oar. Have faith when you speak to the master…” Faith is needed in prayer but not just any kind of faith. A young boy was trapped in a burning house. The father called his son; ”My son jump from the window.” The son answered,” I can‘t see you.” The thick smoke covered his sight. The father strongly persuaded the son to jump. The son jumped and fell into the arms of his father. He jumped because he trusted his father. Prayer needs this quality of faith, a complete trust in God.

During the Roman period, after a successful conquest or victory of the Roman soldiers they have to formally report to the emperor seated on his throne. In their full colorful uniform and at the cheers of the crowd they walk toward the throne. One time, a young boy ran across the marching crowd. The guard stopped him and told the boy, ”you are dishonoring the emperor” but the boy answered loudly, ”to you he is the emperor, to me he is my father.” The boy succeeded to the throne. Every time a person prays, he must never forget that God is Father to him and that he is son of God.

1st Reading: Mal 3:13-20b
You say very harsh things about me, says Yahweh, and, yet, you say: ”What harsh things did we say against you?” You say: ”It is useless to serve God. There is no benefit in observing his commandments or in leading an austere life for his sake. Happy are the shameless!

Those who do evil succeed in everything; though they provoke God, they remain unharmed.” Those were the very words of those who fear Yahweh. Yahweh listened and heard what they said. He ordered at once, that the names of those who respect him and reverence his name be written in a record.

And he declared, ”They will be mine on the day I have already set. Then I shall care for them, as a father cares for his obedient son. And you will see the different fates of the good and the bad, those who obey God and those who disobey him.

The day already comes, flaming as a furnace. On that day, all the proud and evildoers will be burned, like straw in the fire. They will be left without branches or roots. On the other hand, the sun of justice will shine upon you who respect my name and bring health in its rays. You will come out leaping, like fattened calves.

Gospel: Lk 11:5-13
Jesus said to them, ”Suppose one of you has a friend, and goes to his house in the middle of the night and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine who is traveling has just arrived, and I have nothing to offer him.‘ Maybe your friend will answer from inside, ‘Don‘t bother me now; the door is locked, and my children and I are in bed, so I can‘t get up and give you anything.‘ But I tell you, even though he will not get up and attend to you because you are a friend, yet he will get up because you are a bother to him, and he will give you all you need.

And so I say to you, ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For the one who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to him who knocks the door will be opened.

If your child asks for a fish, will you give him a snake instead? And if your child asks for an egg, will you give him a scorpion? If you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.”

Reflection:
Caused by the request of the dis­ciple, Jesus continues to teach how to pray. He gave a model, known to us now as the ”The Lord‘s prayer.” This time ­Jesus points to a very important element of prayer, persistence. On persistence, two points are emphasized by Him. Persistence on the part of the one praying manifested by the traveler­ in the gospel today and in ­another passage, by the woman ­asking justice from the Judge. The judge rendered his decision due to the persistence of the woman.(Lk.18:1-8)

The second is the persistence of God or His determined resolve to give the need of His children from His goodness, manifested clearly from the following texts of the gospel today.

”Though He will not get up and ­attend to you because you are friend….and He will give you all you need.”

”It will be given. You will find. It will be opened.”

”If you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.”

Our God is all GOOD, truly concerned with us. His refusal to our ­requests is still an answer from His goodness. He knows not only what is good but what is best.

October 13th
Friday

1st Reading: Jl 1:13-15; 2:1-2
Gird yourselves, O priests, and weep; mourn, O ministers of the altar. Come, spend the night in sackcloth, O ministers of my God! For the house of your God is deprived of grain and drink offering. Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Summon the elders, and all who live in the land, into the house of your God, and cry out to Yahweh, ”What a dreadful day—the day of Yahweh, that draws near, and comes as ruin, from the Almighty!”

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all dwellers in the land tremble, for the day of Yahweh is coming. Yes, the day is fast approaching—a day of gloom and darkness, a day of clouds and blackness. A vast and mighty army comes, like dawn spreading over the mountain; such as has never occurred before, nor will happen again in the future.

Gospel: Lk 11:15-26
Yet some of them said, ”He drives out demons by the power of Beelzebul, the chief of the demons.” Others wanted to put him to the test, by asking him for a heavenly sign.

But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them, ”Every nation divided by civil war is on the road to ruin, and will fall. If Satan also is divided, his empire is coming to an end. How can you say that I drive out demons by calling upon Beelzebul? If I drive them out by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons drive out demons? They will be your judges, then.

But if I drive out demons by the finger of God; would not this mean that the kingdom of God has come upon you? As long as a man, strong and well-armed, guards his house, his goods are safe. But when a stronger man attacks and overcomes him, the challenger takes away all the weapons he relied on, and disposes of his spoils

Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me, scatters.

When the evil spirit goes out of a person, it wanders through dry lands, looking for a resting place; and finding none, it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.‘ When it comes, it finds the house swept and everything in order. Then it goes to fetch seven other spirits, even worse than itself. They move in and settle there, so that the last state of that person is worse than the first.”

Reflection:
In the first reading, the prophet Joel exhorts the priests to weep and mourn and the ministers to repent because due to the swarm of locusts invading the land, causing darkness all over, threatening their livelihood. All must return to the Lord.

During the advent and Christmas seasons, the Son born unto us and given us was introduced so well and perfectly that He is the ”Son of God, Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, on His shoulder dominion rests” (Is.9:6-7). All these tell us that Jesus‘ power is not from Beelzebul. All His power and wisdom come from the Father.

Jesus in the last part of our gospel today speaks of the driven out evil and his return to its house (the person from whom the evil is driven out) with stronger power. The evil ”goes to fetch seven other spirits, even worse than itself…{so that} the person is worse than the first.” This brings us to that experience when we decided to follow the Lord, temptations were so strong and concrete. When we make our commitment, the evil becomes so jealous and looks for attractive strategies so as not to lose anyone. The evil does its best to snatch one who turned his back from it. One must have a determined determination of his choice for good in order not to be carried by the evil force. Every after confession we pray: ”I firmly resolve with the help of thy grace …to do penance and to amend my life.” Let us not give the evil the chance to return to us and find ourselves a fitting dwelling place of it.

St. Callistus I

1st Reading: Jl 4:12-21
Rise up, O people, and come to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, nations. Bring a sickle for the harvest is ripe; come and tread, for the wine press is full, and the vats overflow; so great is their wickedness!

Multitudes and more multitudes in the Valley of Verdict! The day of Yahweh is near in the Valley of Verdict! The sun and the moon become dark, the stars lose their radiance. Yahweh roars from Zion and raises his voice from Jerusalem; heaven and earth are shaken. Indeed, Yahweh is a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the Israelites. You will know that I am Yahweh, your God, dwelling on Zion, my holy mountain. Jerusalem will be a holy place; and foreigners will never pass through there again.

On that day, the mountains shall drip wine and the hills flow with milk; all the streams of Judah will run with water; and a fountain will spring from the house of Yahweh, and water the valley of Shittim.

On the other hand, Egypt will be devastated; and Edom will become a deserted wasteland, because they committed violence against Judah, and shed innocent blood in their country. But Judah will be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem through all generations. And I shall avenge their blood and not leave it unpunished, for Yahweh dwells in Zion.

Gospel: Lk 11:27-28
As Jesus was speaking, a woman spoke from the crowd and said to him, ”Blessed is the one who gave you birth and nursed you!” Jesus replied, ”Truly blessed are those who hear the word of God, and keep it as well.”

Reflection:
Mary, the mother of Jesus is praised and considered blessed because of her son, Jesus. However, for Jesus, ”Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” More than being a biological mother, Mary is blessed among women because she listened to the word of God, pondered it and acted on it.

It is said that blood is thicker than water. For Jesus, it is not that much. ”He who does the will of my Father, is my mother, my brother, my sister” (Mk. 3:34-35). Blessedness can be attained by all.
