28th Sunday of Ordinary Time


Home

Isaiah 25: 6-10a; Philippians 4:12-14, 19-20; Matthew 22:1-14. The images of a lavish feast, the destruction of death and the end of all sadness are used by Isaiah to describe God’s saving power. Paul credits his ability to live in abundance, as well as in adversity, to Jesus, his source of strength. Today’s Gospel employs the wedding banquet as a metaphor for the Kingdom of God, to which all are invited.

 


Domenica 28A Del Tempo Ordinario

 

La chaimata di Dio assomiglia a una festa nazionale. Ma esige una risposta corrispondente, dato che essa comincia in terra e raggiunge la sua pienezza in cielo, dove non ci sarà né pianto, né morte. Chi accetta l’invito è chiamato a cooperare e rivestirsi della veste nuziale, a garanzia di appartenenza al nuovo Popolo di Dio.

 

 


From the Pastor's Desk

   

 This Sunday’s gospel is the last of three parables on the acceptance or rejection of Matthew’s Kingdom of God. We have seen this theme in the parable of the man and his two sons two weeks ago. Last week the theme continued in the parable of the Lord’s vineyard; and now this week Jesus tells the parable of the Great Supper where two invitations to the banquet are sent.

Many parties today have two invitations. Who hasn’t received a wedding invitation called “Save-the-Date” followed by a more elaborate announcement with important particulars like the store registry and reception venue? It wasn’t that different when the King sends word of his son’s wedding and then invites a whole new group when the save-the-date invitees respond with surprising viciousness.

But, is it really fair when one of the just-invited doesn’t have time to put on a wedding garment is severely punished: “Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”? But fairness is not part of the allegorical intent of the conclusion of the parable. Matthew has already interpreted for us Jesus’ parable of the Great Supper for those who find themselves unexpectedly included into the kingdom banquet, accept the invitation to grace, but do nothing but show up. What the unfortunate man was lacking was his baptismal garments, the giving up of an old way of life and putting on a new Christian identity. He was expected to be clothed in deeds of Christian life much like the “fruits” of the preceding parable of the vineyard given to others. Here realism is sacrificed to theological meaning (Matthew, Boring, p. 418).

The whole parable of Jesus as interpreted by Matthew for his Christian community becomes instruction and warning to insiders, all of us, to come prepared to the great and final banquet in the Kingdom of God.

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Choose Life! “There are some things that must not change because they are built on the Word of God. Our Catholic faith teaches us that marriage is one of those things—a sacrament, a gateway to family and a pillar of our society. In marriage, God recruited men and women to help Him in creation. What an awesome privilege and an equally awesome responsibility. All of this originates in God’s union of one man and one woman. In a way, we can think of this as the mustard seed of humanity. How could the fundamental nature of something so important be changed?”–Bishop Gerald Barnes, San Bernadino.


Troubled Marriage? It’s not unheard of!

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.

Bishops and other religious leaders from across the country join our California bishops in defense of marriage:

Rabbi Fabian Schonfeld & Bishop William Murphy Defend Marriage: "We now confront a demand that same sex unions be classified as marriage. Advocates of this position argue that to do otherwise is to engage in a form of discrimination against homosexuals. We recognize that all persons share equally in the dignity of human nature and are entitled to have that human dignity protected, but this does not justify the creation of a new definition for a term whose traditional meaning is of critical importance to the furtherance of a fundamental societal interest.

God’s design for the continuance of human life, as seen in the natural order, as well as in the Bible (Gen. 1-3), clearly revolves around the union of male and female, first as husband and wife, and then as parents. A unique goal of marriage, which is reproduction and the raising of families, exists apart from that of same sex unions, which cannot equally participate in this essential function. While others may claim the right to establish private relationships between persons of the same gender that simulate marriage, the legal classification of such relationships as marriage dilutes the special standing of marriage between a man and a woman. Since the future of every society depends upon its ability to reproduce itself according to this natural order and to have its young people reared in a stable environment, it is the duty of the state to protect the traditional place of marriage and the family for the good of society."

Rabbi Fabian Schonfeld, Rabbi of Young Israel Synagogue, Kew Gardens Hills, New York.
Bishop William Murphy, Bishop of Rockville Centre
and members of the Consultation of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Orthodox Union and the Rabbinical Council of America

The full statement is here.


The Holy Father Defends Marriage: "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.


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).

Last week’s question: What personal infirmity does St. Paul refer to in his own writings?

Paul himself refers to an infirmity, mental or physical, that causes trouble. It may have been poor eyesight. “…Therefore, that I might not become too elated, a thorn in my flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan, to beat me, to keep me from being too elated.” Paul referred to a vision problem in his letter to the Galatians” “For I bear you witness, that, if possible, you would have plucked out your own eyes and given them to me” (Galatians 4:15). And, “See with what large letters I have written to you with my own hand!” (Galatians 6:11). Next Weeks question: What are some of Paul’s spiritual gifts from God referred to in the New Testament ?

Speaking of the Year of Paul: Over at St. Paul of the Shipwreck Church, Fr. David Pettengill will be presenting a five-week series of lectures “Let Paul Speak to the Nations!” The lectures began oin SEptember 30, and the remaining three will be on October 14, 21, and 28. The evenings begin with a snack at 6:30 PM, and the lectures are from 7:15-9PM. Registration is $25, and may be paid at the door. For more information, call 468-3434


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:

Silvano and Lourice Biondi. Silvano and Lourice met in 1961 in Italy, and got married in 1964 at Saints. Peter and Paul They’ve both worked at Saints Peter and Paul since 1979, Lourice as the rectory cook and Silvano as the plant maintenance man (although that title does not begin to do him justice). Everybody in the parish knows Silvano. even theough he retired (Salesian retired!) in 2006. He’s still around every day helping out. Lourice works Monday through Friday in the rectory, plus she also cooks for special events. For 13 years, Lourice was the head of our Salesian Cooperators and she was also a lector for 10 years. Silvano and Lourice have two children Paolo and Sylvana. Sylvana teaches fourth garde at our school, and they have two grandchildren, Elisa (that’s Elisa in the picture) and Dario, who both attend SSPP school.

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


Mass for those Affected by Crime, Abuse, or Violence: Our good Archbishop George Niederauer will celebrate a special Mass on Sunday, October 26 at 3:30PM at St. Mary’s Cathedral. This Mass is for those of all ages who have been victimized through crime, abuse, or violence, as well as their families & friends. All are invited and a reception will follow.

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. John Bosco (Don Bosco), was born in Becci, Italy. With the help of his pious Mother, he was able to follow his vocation of becoming a priest. His desire was always to work with boys and lead them to God. After a series of ministries, he was able to work with some street boys who were troublesome to the town: orphans, jobless and ignorant. He began working with these boys by giving them religion lessons. St. John Bosco was very successful with the strategy of: play and pray. But Our Blessed Lady was not going to let Don Bosco get comfortable with the boys. She continually urged him to do something for the girls. It was Father Pesterino, the Parish priest of Mornese, who eventually lead Don Bosco to Mornese and Mary Mazzarello. There, in Mornese, Don Bosco found what he was looking for, someone to carry on his work and ideas and methods, with the girls. He could rest at peace, now, he was finally fulfilling Mary’s request.

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!"

In the Bay Area, call:

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
