18th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

Isaiah 55: 1-3; Romans 8:35, 37-39; Matthew 14: 13-21. The prophet Isaiah invites the Israelites to return to God, have their spiritual thirst quenched and the covenant renewed. Paul is convinced that the love of God in Christ is so powerful that nothing can separate us from it. The Gospel presents Matthew’s version of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

 


 

Domenica 18A Del Tempo Ordinario

Il peccato impedisce che l’amore di Cristo raggiunga il suo scopo. Sullo sfondo della tragedia di Giovanni Battista, davanti a una folla sfinita e disorientata, Gesù chiede agli Apostoli di fare la loro piccolo parte e compie un miracolo. Fidiamoci della Provvidenza che agisce spesso anche attraverso di noi: ciò che riceviamo deve diventare dono.


From the Pastor's Desk

   

 Our Sunday Bulletin carries advertisements on six area restaurants: Louis Restaurant on Pier 39, Joe Dimaggio’s, North Beach Restaurant, Firenze by Night, Eddie’s and Joey’s (Old Moose’s) in North Beach, and No. 9 Fisherman’s Grotto on Fishermen’s Wharf. We would never say which one is better than another, for taste and atmosphere are very subjective. But we do flat-out recommend them for their patronage of Saints Peter and Paul. Most restaurants create an ambiance that is remarkable and memorable. It might be the décor, wall-paintings, purple neon sign, the elegance, the panoramic view, the quaint crab boats, whatever; but their fine dining becomes a place of celebration and proposal.

The miracle feeding of the five thousand in today’s gospel is memorable for its magnitude as well as its setting. That’s a lot of people to feed with only five loaves and two fish! The setting must have been spectacular. It was on the deserted seashore in the springtime that could be reached by water and on foot. Fine dining at its best, the miracle of the feeding anticipates the final messianic banquet of the Kingdom of God and prefigures Eucharist. Although there are bread and fish, rather than bread and wine, the Eucharistic elements are obvious: “and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples…”

The restaurant business is not for the faint of heart. Long hours, a fickle clientele, the dicey economy, and a temperamental cook could spell disaster. The disciples would have nothing to do with feeding all those people. It was getting late, so they wanted Jesus to send the people away to buy food for themselves. Jesus said, “There is no way I’m going to send them away, for they hunger for something greater than food. They hunger for God; and you are going to help me distribute the food till all are satisfied.”

Is it not significant that Jesus had his disciples distribute the food and collect the leftovers? How do we cooperate as church in feeding the hungry and satisfying humanity’s hunger for the presence of God? It is certainly not an endeavor for the faint of heart!

Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Saints Peter and Paul Church will track you down to the ends of the earth...

Reading from left to right, that's parishioners Jimmy & Belinda Wong, Paul & Maggie Ko, and Lourice & Silvano Biondi.
The Wong's and Ko's were on a cruise, and the Biondi's were visiting relatives, when they all ended up in Lucca, Italy.
They peered at each other across this little street, wondering "Say, is that....?" "Could that be...?"
Yep, could be and was.


40th Anniversary of "Humanae Vitae": This week marks the 40th Anniversary of dear Pope Paul's Encyclical Humanae Vitae. From a fine article in "First Things":

"That Humanae Vitae and related Catholic teachings about sexual morality are laughingstocks in all the best places is not exactly news. Even in the benighted precincts of believers, where information from the outside world is known to travel exceedingly slowly, everybody grasps that this is one doctrine the world loves to hate. During Benedict XVI’s April visit to the United States, hardly a story in the secular press failed to mention the teachings of Humanae Vitae, usually alongside adjectives like “divisive” and “controversial” and “outdated . . . . Four decades later, not only have the document’s signature predictions been ratified in empirical force, but they have been ratified as few predictions ever are: in ways its authors could not possibly have foreseen, including by information that did not exist when the document was written, by scholars and others with no interest whatever in its teaching, and indeed even inadvertently, and in more ways than one, by many proud public adversaries of the Church.


Bishop Wenski Defends Marriage: “The imposition by judicial fiat of same-sex marriage on the citizens of California has reminded us that society’s culture wars are far from over...In the culture wars, the two sides are fighting about the understanding of man and his relationship to truth and reality. One side – and today “gay marriage” is its poster child – holds that anyone can essentially create his or her own reality. This side holds for a radical autonomy by which truth is determined not by the nature of things, but by one’s own individual will. The other side holds men and women are not self-creators but creatures. Truth is not constructed, but received and thus must reflect the reality of things. Or, as the Book of Genesis says: ‘Male and female, He (God) created them.’” (Gn 1:27). –Bishop Thomas Wenski, Diocese of Orlando, Florida


Bishop Vigneron Defends Marriage: “Marriage is a reality authored by God in his very act of creating the human race. According to his irrevocable plan, the marriage relationship is only possible between one man and one woman. The purposes of this relationship are (1) the mutual loving support of husband and wife and (2) their loving service of life by bringing children into the world and raising them to be virtuous and productive. The experience of history – both ancient and in our own time – has taught us that no government has the power to change the order which God has inscribed in our nature . . In regard to the short term: As faithful citizens Catholics are called to bring our laws regarding marriage into conformity with what we know about the nature of marriage. In the long term: If such efforts fail, our way of life will become counter-cultural, always a difficult situation for Christians -- one our forebears faced in many ages past, one that the Lord himself predicted for us.” –Bishop Allen Vigneron, Diocese of Oakland, May 16, 2008.


Archbishop Niederauer Defends Marriage: “In regard to this decision of the court, the Catholic Bishops of California have said that “Catholic teaching maintains that marriage is a faithful, exclusive and lifelong union between one man and one woman joined in an intimate partnership of life and love-a union instituted by God for the mutual fulfillment of the husband and wife as well as for the procreation and education of children.” This teaching of the Church follows forth from the teaching of Jesus Christ: “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female' and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” (Matthew 19: 4-5) At a moment in our society when we need to reinforce the strength of marriage and family this decision of the Supreme Court takes California in the opposite direction.” -His Excellency George Niederauer, Archbishop of San Francisco.


Year of Paul! Pope Benedict has called us to the “Year of Paul” celebrating the 2000th Anniversary of his birth. At SS Peter and Paul we hope to learn more about St. Paul by offering trivia questions in the Bulletin on a weekly basis (hopefully).

Answers to last week’s questions:

1) Where do we first hear about Saul / Paul? We first read about Saul / Paul in the Acts of the Apostles and a majority of that book is about Paul.

2) Why do we call Paul the great evangelist? By many estimates, Paul is responsible for the spread of Christianity beyond the local communities of Jerusalem into almost all the major cities of the Roman Empire well before the end of the first century. We only have to look at the table of contents of the New Testament and see of the 27 books nearly half (13) are letters that claim to have been written by Paul.

Next Week’s Questions: 1) How did Paul pave the way for Christianity? 2) What period in the beginning of Christianity does Paul’s writings cover?


Ambassadors for Christ

The Holy Father has declared 2008-2009 to be the Commemoration of the Anniversary of the birth of St. Paul, the co-patron of our parish. As we all know, Paul was the “Apostle to the Gentiles.” In keeping with this, we will highlight members of our parish family who are “Ambassadors for Christ.” Today, we profile:

Paul and Maggie Ko. Paul & Maggie joined the parish in 1973. Paul was born and raised in Hong Kong and then came to the U.S. for his college education. Maggie immigrated from Macau during her childhood.

Paul and Maggie are very active parishioners: Paul has been leading the Liturgical Team for the Chinese Apostolate since the days when Fr. Mario Rosso was the directer of the Apostolate. He’s also a Eucharistic Minister; was a member of Fr. Purdy’s building repair committee; is the current vice president of the parish council; and is vice-president of the Chinese Home Fellowship. Maggie is a lector at the Chinese Mass; and a member of the Home Fellowship. She also always helps out whenever needed—once we had a big dinner in the rectory and even though she was an invited guest, half the time she was helping out in the kitchen. Ever year you’ll see Paul & Maggie volunteering at the bazaar: Paul has also been in charge of the blackjack tables at the bazaar since the early 80’s, and Maggie volunteers every year as a cashier.

Paul and Maggie have two daughters, Vivian and Stephanie. Vivian is now a psychotherapeutist for San Mateo County dealing with teenagers. Stephanie is an inpatient pharmacist for Kaiser Hospital in Redwood City. God Bless them!

To see all members of the parish profiled as "Ambassadors for Christ," go here.


New “Intentions” book: Each week we will pray for those intentions that are placed in our prayer book at the entrance to the church. As you enter the church, please write your intention in the book and it will be placed on the ambo and remembered during the Prayers of the Faithful. These prayers can be for the living, dead, sick or healthy or whatever intention is held steadfast in your heart.

Salesian Sisters Centennial Celebration: As we prepare for the Sisters Centennial, we also look back: Through the years, the Sisters spread out to several states: 1914, Niagara Falls, NY; 1921, Watsonville, CA; 1930, Tampa, FL, (where they took residence in a Cigar Barn.); 1938, Roseto, PA; 1953, New Brunswick, Canada; 1955, Brooklyn Park, Australia, (Mission expansion.); 1961, Cuban Crisis, Cuban Sisters arrive in the USA Province, 1960, Bayous, LA 1933, Our Silver Jubilee as a Province in the USA. Around the year of 1939, the Sisters and religious Candidates arrive from Mexico to flea from the Religious persecution. June 24, 1951 St. Mary Mazzarello, our co-foundress is canonized! 1958 Golden Jubilee as a Province in the USA, 1972, Centennial year of founding the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians – the Salesian Sisters.

More about the Salesian Sisters Centennial Celebration: To learn more about the Sisters and the Centennial celebration, go to our "Sisters Centennial" page. And if anyone has any info our photos they'd like to share, please feel free to send!

Chinese/ English Mass: Not everybody knows that at our 10:15 Chinese Mass on Sundays, Fr. Andrew has introduced some English. There’s also some Latin and Greek (sometimes) plus an excellent choir. If you’ve never been, you owe it to yourself to check it out!

Holy Land Pilgrimages: Please visit this link to find out about Pilgrimages to the Holy Land. Our friends over at St. Thomas More Church are affiliated with these pilgrimages.

World Day of Prayer for Vocations: May 13, Good Shepherd Sunday, was also designated by our dear Pope Paul VI as the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Let’s join the Universal Church as we pray that all people be open to God’s call and accept the gift he offers us! The video below is "Fishers of Men" from the Vocations Office of the USCCB. It is well worth watching! Please share it with any young men you know who may be thinking about a vocation to the priesthood.

 


More Choose Life! As far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person, and she is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to principles which are not negotiable. Among these the following emerge clearly today:

- protection of life in all its stages, from the first moment of conception until natural death;

- recognition and promotion of the natural structure of the family - as a union between a man and a woman based on marriage - and its defence from attempts to make it juridically equivalent to radically different forms of union which in reality harm it and contribute to its destabilization, obscuring its particular character and its irreplaceable social role;

- the protection of the right of parents to educate their children. -Benedict XVI; Address to the Members of the European People's Party, March 30, 2006.

More Choose Life! Many times we have asked if California voters were having second thoughts about spending $3 billion + for immoral embryonic stem cell research, which has yet to show a single cure, while adult stem cells are curing people left and right.

The experts have finally caught up with the Church’s teaching on embryonic stem-cell research: “When I saw the embryo [through a microscope at a friend’s fertility clinic], I suddenly realized there was such a small difference between it and my daughters. I thought, we can’t keep destroying embryos for our research. There must be another way.” –Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, pioneer in reprogramming adult cells to behave as embryonic stem cells, quoted in the NY Times, Dec. 11, 2007.

“If human embryonic stem-cell research does not make you at least a little bit uncomfortable, you have not thought about it enough.” Dr. James A. Thomson, the first to isolate stem cells from human embryos in 1998, who also has found a way to reprogram adult cells to behave like embryonic stem cells, quoted in NY Times, Nov. 22, 2007

Struggling with Same-Sex Attraction? You are NOT alone and the Church has not abandoned you! Visit the COURAGE website. "COURAGE" is an apostolate of the Church that ministers to those struggling against this particular temptation. They have been endorsed by the Pontifical Council for the Family and our beloved John Paul II said of this ministry, "COURAGE is doing the work of God!"

Struggling with Pornography Addiction? You also are not alone! Pornographic websites are by far the largest segment of the web.

A new Catholic apostolate, the Serenellians (www.pornnomore.com), is trying to help those caught in the grips of pornography addiction. The Serenellians get their name from Alessandro Serenelli, who killed St. Maria Goretti in a fit of lust and later repented.

“If a man so seemingly wicked, decadent and corrupt as Alessandro Serenelli can receive the fullness of conversion and salvation from Almighty God, then so can each and every like soul caught up in the snares of this insidious evil.”

You can visit their website by clicking on the logo to the left, and there is a good story about them on California Catholic Daily.

Saints Peter and Paul School Scholarship Fund: Many of you will remember the time when there were many religious vocations and a Catholic education was extraordinarily inexpensive. But all that has changed. Our school charges a tuition of $5,400—less than our neighboring Catholic Schools, and half of what a public school spends to educate a child. With San Francisco’s cost of living, lack of funds may prevent children from receiving a Catholic Education. The Salesians began by educating the children of the poor, and we are not about to exclude those who cannot make the total fee. But, like Don Bosco before us, we need help. Are there parishioners and/or friends who might consider contributing to the sponsorship of a student who might be otherwise forced to leave? All recipient family qualifications will be verified by Saints Peter and Paul School. For more information,you can download a flyer here, or feel free to call Fr. Itzaina at 421-0809.

Help the Elderly! Some of our wonderful older parishioners are now in convalescent hospitals. They would love to have visitors! If you would like to be a part of this important and rewarding ministry, or if you know of a person who might like a visit, please call Gibbons at 421-0809, or email to

Weekly Donation Envelopes: If you’d like a set of weekly donation envelopes, either come by the parish office or call 415-421-0809, and ask to speak to the secretary, and we will send them to you.
