All Souls


Home

Wisdom 3:1-9; Romans 5:5-11 or 6:3-9 John 6:37-40. In the Book of Wisdom, we are told that those who love God rest in the hand of God. The just who have departed are safely in the arms of the Father. Paul encourages believers by his reminder that Christ has redeemed us. The gospel reading tells us how we are to live so that we may have eternal life.

 


 

 

Tutti I Santi

Con un’unica festa la Chiesa abbraccia la memoria di tutti i Santi che, passati attraverso la “grande tribolazione”, godono il premio eterno, celebrando il trionfo della Pasqua di Gesù. I santi stanno davanti a noi come modelli di vita, per destare coraggio e speranza di fronte alla contrarietà.

 

 


From the Pastor's Desk

   

Allow me to deviate from my regular scriptural notes to quote from the Catholic Bishops’ statement from Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship: A Political Responsibility and advocate for State Proposition 4 that calls for a waiting period and parental notification before termination of a minor’s pregnancy.

“Sometimes morally flawed laws already exist. In this situation, the process of framing legislation to protect life is subject to prudential judgment and ‘the art of the possible.’ At times this process may restore justice only partially or gradually. For example, Pope John Paul II taught that when a government official who fully opposes abortion cannot succeed in completely overturning a pro-abortion law, he or she may work to improve protection for unborn human life, ‘limiting the harm done by such a law’ and lessening its negative impact as much as possible (Evangelium Vitae, no. 73). Such incremental improvements in the law are acceptable as steps toward the full restoration of justice. However, Catholics must never abandon the moral requirement to seek full protection for all human life from the moment of conception until natural death.” (Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship..., #32, p. 10).

I would suggest and strongly urge that parishioners and California State visitors to Saints Peter and Paul use the necessary “prudential judgment and ‘the art of the possible’” in voting for State Proposition 4. A “yes” on Proposition 4 will make it a state law that parents have to be notified two days before their child aborts her child. It is not an unreasonable action (now a state law in 34 states), for schools cannot dispense aspirin without parental permission, and a minor cannot get a tattoo without parental permission. Prop 4 is only about notice of parents and not about parental permission. It’s really a Proposition in the realm of the “art of the possible.” It doesn’t do away with “choice” of the minor, but gives parents a way to respond to a dangerous medical procedure of their child. (It’s even more dangerous to the child in the womb!) Advocates of abortion are against because it curtails, albeit slightly, the choice of a woman to abort her child. This isn’t a Catholic-Church thing, but a right of the parents to protect and guide their child to proper moral and reasonable decisions. This right has unjustly been taken away from parents by the decision of the Supreme Court, which said that the right to life of the unborn was secondary to the right to the mother to choose life or death of the child in the womb. This “choice” was established as more important than life by the Constitutional principle of “privacy.” What we have now is abortion on demand and under the principle of “the art of the possible,” we must use every legal and moral means to curtail abortions.

Realistically, the effort to end abortion has shifted to limiting abortion. That’s why we have State Proposition 4: it curtails abortion on demand for 48 hours to give a chance for parents to be involved in their child’s life and death decision. Catholics, along with other artful citizens of prudence and justice, have in State Proposition 4 the chance to positively choose life, which is a very scriptural thing to do (Cf. Dt. 30, 15-20)

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Choose Life, Defend Marriage: “The issue before us with Proposition 8 is ‘marriage’ – an ancient, yet modern, human institution which pre-exists both Church and government. Marriage, history shows us, is intrinsic to stable, flourishing and hospitable societies. Although cultural differences have occurred, what has never changed is that marriage is the ideal relationship between a man and a woman for the purpose of procreation and the continuation of the human race. We must support traditional marriage as the source of our civilization, the foundation for a society that can be home to all human beings, and the reflection of our relationship with God.” –California Conference of Catholic Bishops

His Excellency will lead us in a prayer service at 7:00 PM. All Parishioners are invited to this wonderful event!


Marriage Matters to Kids! Proposition 8 forces us to confront important questions:

What is the meaning of Marriage?
Do Children have a fundamental right to a Mother and a Father?
Do Mothers matter? Do Fathers matter?
Does natural marriage benefit society?
If so, what are the dangers of redefining marriage?
What about equality, and the dignity of the homosexual person?

Watch the video below, and listen to Catholic bishops and priests, (including a charming episode with SSPP’s own Fr. Armand Oliveri!) marriage counselors, lawyers, and people just like you, describe what marriage means and why we are called to protect it. Visit www.MarriageMattersToKids.org A number of SSPP Parishioners were involved in this project.

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 king did Paul appear before in Caesarea speaking on his own behalf? Festus referred Paul’s case to the king, saying, “There is a man here left in custody by Felix”…The next day King Agrippa and Bernice came with great ceremony and entered the audience hall, Paul was brought in. And Festus said, “King Agrippa and all you here present with us, look at this man about whom the whole Jewish populace petitioned me here and in Jerusalem, clamoring that he should live no longer. I found, however, that he had done nothing deserving death, and so when he appealed to the Emperor, I decided to send him.” Acts 25:23-26 Then King Agrippa said to Paul, “You may now speak on your own behalf.” So Paul stretched out his hand and began his defense. Acts 26:1

Next week’s question: What letter did St. Paul write introducing himself to a community founded by others?


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:

Anna Lee: Anna Lee has been a parishioner since around 1980. She was born in Hong Kong & came to the US in 1973. Anna met her husband Anthony right here at Saints Peter and Paul, and Fr. Mario Rosso married them in 1983 (a real Saints Peter and Paul romance!) Anna and Anthony have four daughters: Michelle, Pamela, Amanda, & Isabel, all of whom were baptized at SSPP, graduated from our Salesian School & attended the Salesian Boys’ and Girls’ Club..

Anna has done everything for the parish. She is a past president of the SBGC Mother’s Club, a long-time member of the Parish Council, a long-time bazaar volunteer in the Chinese Kitchen, and she is currently President of the Chinese Home Fellowship. But what really makes Anna stand out is her unfailing cheerfulness—in this, she is a true daughter of Don Bosco: “I want no long-faced saints!” She’s always got a smile on her face, and she’s usually laughing! 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.

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!


Young Adult Group Get Together: The Pasta Pomodor dinner was a big success! The Saints Peter and Paul Young Adult Group is for folks aged 25-40. Please email stpeter_paul_singles@hotmail.com for more information.

Stress in your Marriage? It’s not unheard of. Retrovaille (pronounced “retrovi”) is a program, Catholic in origin, designed to help married couples rediscover one another and their life together. It has helped thousands of married couples. For more info, call 415-893-1005 or email Sf@retroca.com or visit www.Retrouvaille.org.


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

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.

Grant an early peace with victory founded upon justice. Instill in the hearts and minds of men and women everywhere a firm purpose to live forever in peace and good will toward all. Amen.
