Fifth Sunday of Lent


Home

Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 5:7-9; John 12:20-33. In today’s first reading, God promises a new covenant in which he will forgive humankind’s sins. The passage from Hebrews reminds us that Jesus, even though he was God, was obedient to his Father in order to save us. In the Gospel, Jesus makes it clear that he was sent by the Father to die for our sins. A voice from heaven confirms this.

 


 

Domenica 5A Di Quaresima

 

Convertirsi vuol dire mettere al primo posto un Dio diverso da come solitamente lo immaginiamo: non un padrone assoluto, ma un Padre che ci ama. Dio è bontà e misericordia. La riposta d’amore è la causa della nascita di Gesù. Egli riconosce che è arduo scegliere la croce, sapendo che il suo sacrificio è la misura dell’amore.

 

 


From the Pastor's Desk

   

Last Saturday night in Oakland four police officers were killed, along with the lone gunman who had been stopped for a traffic violation by two motorcycle officers. One police officer was killed, another was fatally wounded at the traffic stop; the other two were members of the Oakland SWAT team who died in a shoot-out in a neighboring residential complex where the gunman was hiding in a closet and opened fire with an assault rifle.

The city of Oakland has seen a rise in tension between residents and police since the death of Oscar Grant in the Fruitvale Station by BART policeman Johannes Mehserle. What is chilling is that twenty residents gathered at the scene of the traffic stop and taunted the police as they tried to make sense of the killing of the first police officer.

Will the violence never end? As Christians, we continue to hope because we know that darkness will not prevail. In the gospel for Sunday, Jesus pronounces these words to a crowd gathered to see Jesus: “Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.” (John 12, 31-32)

Jeremiah’s words come to mind: “I will forgive their evildoing and remember their sin no more.” Also the letter to the Hebrews: “Son, though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered; and when he was made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.”

These are all words taken from this Sunday’s readings. But we do not have to go that far to begin to understand the evil that confronts us and the evil that is within us. Understanding begins with Jesus who is lifted up on the Cross and who is the “source of eternal salvation.”

Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Fast: Everyone over 18, but under 60, is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On these two days, the law of fast allows only one full meal a day, but does not prohibit taking some food during the day, so long as this does not constitute a full meal. Drinking liquids during the day is permitted. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. If in doubt concerning Fast or Abstinence, a priest should be consulted. In the spirit of penance, the faithful should not lightly excuse themselves from this obligation. Mass attendance: During Lent, the Church encourages attendance at daily Mass and reception of the Eucharist. Almsgiving: During Lent, the Church encourages generosity to local, national, and worldwide programs of sharing.

Protecting Conscience Rights in Health Care: Our Voice is Needed!

Many people may not be aware of this, but the Department of Health and Human Services is ready to overturn federal regulations protecting the consciences of doctors and nurses who object to peforming abortions or euthanizing pations because of moral objections. From the webpage of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops:

"The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is inviting public comment on a proposal to rescind an important federal regulation issued in December. The regulation implements and enforces three federal laws protecting the conscience rights of health care providers, especially those at risk of being discriminated against because of their moral or religious objection to abortion.

The Catholic community must speak out to protect Catholic doctors, nurses and hospitals."

You can make your voice heard! Go to the bishop's page, and on the left you will see a link that will allow you to express your opinion.

Listen to the message of His Eminence Cardinal George at left. There are also other videos of concerned Catholics on the Bishop's webpage. There is no excuse for Catholics not to sign a petition asking the government to respect the conscience rights of others.

Salesian Brother John Rasor supplied this additional info:

Interested readers can also go to http://www.nchla.org/issues.asp?ID=9 and see:

1. Link to talking points on the proposed rescission.
2. Text and comment on Bush administration final rule, the one DHHS now proposes to rescind.
3. Text and talking points of Obama administration on their proposed rescission.
4. Letters from Senators to Pres. Obama.
5. Letter from some members of House to House leadership.
6. Other resources.

Thanks, Brother John!


Drivers, Please be careful! We had an unfortunate incident on Sunday Feb. 22. A parishioner with cerebral palsy was startled by a car quickly exiting from our parking lot. She was not hit, but the fright made her lose her balance and fall. She is OK, and the driver was helpful and apologetic—still, it is a good lesson for us. We also received another complaint about drivers not being sufficiently careful of pedestrians. Please remember that not all people are equally steady on their feet, and sometimes we need to be patient.

Volunteers Needed: Ever considered what it feels like to help fight poverty on the frontlines? The St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco invites all parishioners to fulfill Christ’s challenge to care for the least among us by volunteering at the Society’s Vincentian Help Desk. The Help Desk is a clothing distribution program that serves over 1000 people each month. For more information, call Sally Rosen at 415-202-9955.

Plenary Indulgence: “By virtue of the decree of the Apostolic Penitentiary given May 10, 2008...the Plenary Indulgence will be granted to ‘each and every truly repentant individual member of the Christian faithful’ who devoutly takes part in a sacred liturgy or a pious devotion in honor of St. Paul at St. Paul of the Shipwreck on February 14 , 2009, or in any church in the Archdiocese from June 27, 2009 at 4:00 PM through Monday June 29, 2009, in observance of the closing of the Pauline Year. A partial indulgence is granted for the recitation of the Pauline Year Prayer for the Unity of Christians in our church, Saints Peter and Paul. Cards with the prayer may be found in the back of the church.

Cars Vandalized: We have had a number of cars vandalized in the garage. Please keep your eyes open, and if you are one of the people who parks there, make sure you close the garage door upon leaving!


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: Why is Abraham so important to Paul?

Abraham is the oldest ancestor in faith to three major faiths – Judaism, Christianity, Islam. Because of Paul’s background in Judaism it is natural for him to have Abraham as an important figure. We regularly of Abraham in Paul’s letters to the Galatians and Romans and it directly relates to Paul’s notion of justification by faith.

Next week’s question: What does Paul mean by “justification of faith”?



Fr. Armand and friends
at the 2006 Colubus Day Festival. 

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:

Fr. Armand Oliveri, SDB. There is no priest better known or more beloved than Fr. Armand. Beyond count are the number of couples he has married, babies he has baptized and funerals he has celebrated. Fr. Armand was born near Savona in Italy on March 30,1920. (Can you believe it? He will be 89 this week!) He was the fifth child out of a family of three boys and three girls.

His family came to San Francisco in September 1929, and settled right here in North Beach. He enrolled at Saints Peter and Paul school, and graduated in 1935. Fr. Armand felt his vocation early: he went right to the junior seminary in Richmond, and was ordained in 1950. He has had practically every assignment: first he was here at SSPP as secretary to the provincial. After 6 months, he was sent to teach at St. John Bosco grammer school, and later he taught at Salesian High School in Richmond & St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower (where he taught our own Fr. Harold in the 8th Grade). Fr. Armand began his parish work in Canada, from 1955-58; then came back to SSPP from 1958-65. He has served as pastor and assistant pastor at: Corpus Christi Church, Our Lady of Good Counsel (in Canada), and SS. Peter and Paul. Fr. Armand finally returned to North Beach in 2004.

If Father Armand has slowed down, one wonders how busy he must have been before. He still celebrates lots of weddings (sometimes of the grandchildren of people he has married before), baptisms (again, sometimes the second or third generations of one family) and celebrates more funerals than any of our priests. He visits the sick and elderly, and of course celebrates Mass every day. Fr. Armand is also becoming a bit of a media star: he was featured in the “Marriage Matters to Kids” video last year, and was just in a video shoot for Holy Week put together by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

To this day people whom he has married as much as 50 years ago come by the rectory to ask about him. When they find out he is here still, they can’t believe it, and are thrilled to see him. He always remembers them.

God bless this wonderful priest!

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


Marriage Matters to Kids! Proposition 8 forced us to confront important questions, that retain their importance even though the election is over.

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.

“But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach?” –Romans 10:14

New “Intentions” book: Each week we will pray for those intentions that are placed in our prayer book at the entrance to the church.

These prayers can be for the living, dead, sick or healthy or whatever intention is held steadfast in your heart.

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--Stem Cells: 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

So the scientists have caught up with the Church, but the politicians are still playing to the Culture of Death voters. Senate democrats are currently deciding whether to overturn federal restrictions on Embryonic Stem Cell Research established by President Bush. The argument is that this funding will allow rersearch to go forward. This is nonsense. When a product looks profitable, you don't need government funding.

Adult Stem cells have already been used in treating 80+( or 100+, I've lost count) medical conditions. A man named Don Margolis follows this carefully. His website is here. Mr. Margolis interest is totally on adult, or as he calls them, "repair" stem calls. As for ESCR, Mr. Margolis says: "Embryonic stem-cells can't cure a hangnail!"

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.

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.
