18th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

I Kings 19:9a, 11-13a; Romans 9: 1-5; Matthew 14:22-33. The prophet Elijah learns that one must wait for a time of tranquility, when the storms of doubt and despair have passed, if one wants to hear the voice of God.

Saint Paul recognizes Christ can only be found within the Church.

In the Gospel, Jesus calms the storm and rescues Peter when his faith weakens.  

 


Domenica 19A Del Tempo Ordinario

Molti cristiani non hanno ancora appreso che lo spirito del Signore è bontà e miericordia. All’apparire di Gesù sul mare gli apostoli gridano dallo spavento. Gesù fa loro coraggio. Il volto di Cristo manifesta il volta paterno di Dio che non trascura mai i suoi figli.  


From the Pastor's Desk

   

One of my favorite places in the whole-wide-world is Yosemite. I’ve been there in all four seasons, a place that changes majestically with the time of the year. My favorite time of my favorite place is the spring when the snow run-off makes Yosemite Falls a roaring success. You can’t go to Glacier Point or to Tioga Pass, but the rush of water, the mighty Merced River with its ice flows, the hint of new life, and the snow in the towering cliffs give it a focus of beauty incomparable to any place I have ever visited. It’s so awesome, it frightens me.

From the readings of this Sunday, the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, at least the first reading from the first book of Kings and the gospel of Matthew, you get the impression that nature can be downright terrifying. Elijah must have been terrified on the mountain with the earthquake dislodging large boulders, the gale-force winds, and the fire. Who is not both intrigued and terrified by fire? But for Elijah the powerful forces of the earth are merely evidences of God’s power and God’s presence, for God comes more subtly in “a tiny whispering sound.” Could it be that Elijah experienced God in the hardly perceptible vacillation of the pine needles? Perhaps the prophet was speaking of God’s Word that can always be heard above the wind, the fire, and the chaos.

Our understanding of Jesus walking on the water is sometimes confused with our modern notion of miracles as a suspension of earth’s physical laws, for science and the laws of physics have replaced the ancient blending of the spiritual with the physical. Nevertheless, both modernity and ancient times are/were terrified by the power and the danger of the sea. In ancient times the sea was ruled by chaos and death. Jesus conquers the chaos by walking on the waters. So, Peter, a figure of all disciples of the Lord, is able to conquer the chaos in his focus on Jesus, but the moment he is distracted by the wind and the water that is chaos, he begins to sink.

The modern life that we lead, as Catholics or as citizens of this world, can be overwhelming and chaotic. Frightened and distracted by the fast pace of life, by life’s incongruities, and our fear of drowning in details and obligations, we need to take to heart today’s words of Jesus: “Take courage; it is I; do not be afraid.”

–Fr. John Itzaina


Particular Items

Second Collection: This week’s second collection will be for our Archdiocesan Appeal.

Eucharistic Adoration/Holy Hour: Every Wednesday, we have Holy Hour from 7:00-8:00 PM. The parking lot will be open. Come join us is spending some time with our Lord!

Bible Study: And, following Adoration each Wednesday, there will be Bible Study, at 8:00 PM, in the Rectory. The parking lot will still be open!


Assumption of our Blessed Mother! Friday is the Solemnity of the Assumption of Our Lady into heaven. It is a Holy Day of Obligation. There will be Masses at 7:30 and 9:00 AM and 12:15 and 6:00 PM. There will be a vigil Mass on Thursday the 14th at 5:00 PM.


Choose Life: Support Proposition 8: The California Conference of Catholic Bishops have released their statement on Proposition 8, the Defense of Marriage initiative. The entire statement can be found on the tables in the back of the church. The Bishops close by saying: “...as citizens of California, we need to avail ourselves of the opportunity to overturn this ruling by the California Supreme Court. On the November general election ballot, there will be Proposition 8 which reads: ‘Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.’ That language simply affirms the historic, logical and reasonable definition of marriage—and does not remove any benefits from other contractual arrangements. And finally, we strongly encourage Catholics to provide both the financial support and the volunteer efforts needed for the passage of Proposition 8. And—please exercise your citizenship and vote in November.” And support is needed. At their Aug. 2 fundraiser, “Equality California,” the major backer of same-sex “marriage,” raked in more than $2.2 million, including from donors such as Wells Fargo Bank, the California Teachers Union, the Service Employees International Union, and AT&T. And of course PG&E gave $250,000. The Defense of Marriage side doesn’t have big corporate donors like that, only average people. But there are a lot of us. If you’d like to help, there are donation forms in the back of the church. You can also download a donation form here. To volunteer go here.

E-Waste Collection: On Saturday, August 16 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM the Salesian Boys and Girls Club will host their second annual E-Waste Collection Event. Get rid of those old and obsolete electronics that are cluttering up your home, office, or garage. E-Waste does not belong in our landfills, so do something good for the environment and bring your discarded items in for recycling. It’s totally free to you, the items are recycled, an all proceeds benefit the SBGC!

Next Week’s Second Collection: Next Week’s second collection will be for our Archdiocesan Appeal.

Archbishop’s Annual Appeal: We are at 45% of our 2008 goal of $68,800. We thanks all those who have given, and we ask those who have not, if you can please help. If we don’t make our goal, the Archdiocese takes the remainder from our other funds.

Legion of Mary: Are you interested in deepening your devotion to Our Lady? To find out about the Legion, call 415-421-0809 or email ryu@cacremco.com


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 is 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: Answers to last week’s questions:

1) How did Paul pave the way for Christianity? Paul went beyond the local communities of Jerusalem into almost all the major cities of the Roman Empire. He did this well before the end of the first century. He paved the way for Christianity to emerge from its Jewish roots with his strong conviction that gentiles could find salvation without first adopting core Jewish practices.

2) What period in the beginning of Christianity does Paul’s writings cover? Paul’s letters cover the period of Christianity when the Christian communities were just forming – after the resurrection and before the gospels were written. It is about thirty to forty years after Jesus when the Christians were facing enormous obstacles, suffering and many differences in their understanding of Jesus.

NEXT WEEK’S QUESTIONS What do we learn from Paul’s letters? How can we view Paul’s letters in the formation of Christianity?

 


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:

Rose Azzolino: Rose was born in raised in North Beach. She married Richard Azzolino right here at SS. Peter and Paul in May of 1950. Rich, who passed away in 2003, was from “over the hill”—in those days, that meant west of Hyde Street! Rosie has been involved in every part of our parish family: School mothers club, Salesian Boys’ and Girls’ Club Mothers Club, Salesian Cooperators, Salesian Centennial Committee, Bazaar Committee. Rich was very active, too. He was a lifelong member of the Holy Name Society, and he would cook every night—he was a pro— during the Centennial celebrations.

Rose and Rich raised three children: Rich, Jr., Laurie, and Steve. All 3 went to SSPP School, and Rich and Laurie were both married here. Rosie still helping the church: every Tuesday she makes sandwiches for the poor. God Bless her

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: St. Mary Mazzarello, our co-foundress, was born in Mornese, Italy. Mary Mazzarello was a very hard worker in her father’s fields and vineyards and a daily communicant. Her goal was to be pious and never to offend God in any way. She was so afraid to miss daily Mass, that often she would arrive at the church at 4:00 A.M. When Typhoid struck the city and surrounding areas of Mornese, Mary was asked to care for her relatives and in doing so she contracted the disease. Consequently, Mary was forced to find another means of work. This is where she found the will of God and her vocation to the Religious life and the desire to teach young girls how to sew. In the process of teaching the girls how to sew, she shared her piety with the young girls. And this leads us to St. John Bosco and his desire to answer the request of Our Blessed Lady, asking St. John Bosco to do what he was doing for the boys, with girls, also.

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.
