Second Sunday of Easter

Alleluia!


Home

Acts 4:32-35; 1 John 5:1-6; John 20: 19-31. Today’s first reading tells how the early Christians loved and cared for one another. No one was in need. The second reading reminds us that when we believe in Jesus and follow his commands, we conquer the world. In the Gospel, the Risen Jesus comes to the disciples. He gives them the Holy Spirit and the power to forgive sins.

 


 

O Della Divina Misericordia

 

La diffusione della vita nuova passa attraverso il nostro impegno di testimoni dell’amore. É necessario interrogarsi sul significato concreto di questo rinnovamento, voluto dalla divina misericordia: siamo veramente pieni di amore? La Pasqua è punto di arrivo, ma anche tappa di parenza, per un convinto impegno di testimonianza.

 


From the Pastor's Desk

   

For some reason I get irked preparing for the Second Sunday of Easter. I know it’s me (sic), but I can’t help it. You see I get irritated by its second name, Divine Mercy Sunday. My point may be irrational, but what’s so bad about celebrating the divine mercy on any Sunday? Mercy is specifically mentioned in the responsorial psalm: “Let the house of Israel say, ‘His mercy endures forever.’” John’s gospel continues the Easter appearances of the Risen Jesus who breathed on the disciples and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” It’s another way of looking at divine mercy, the forgiveness of sin. Divine Mercy Sunday and the readings are not unconnected.

But I’m still irked. Is it because I’m not Polish? Is it because it comes from the private revelations of Saint Faustina, canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2000, who declared that the Second Sunday of Easter who be also designated as Divine Mercy Sunday. I may be irritated by those whose devotion to the Divine Mercy gives more importance to the Divine Mercy devotion than to Easter Sunday!

In the end, Pope John Paul II didn’t change any of the readings for the Second Sunday of Easter. They remain the same and need to be given needed attention and study, whether you have a devotion to the recent Pope, Saint Faustina Kowalska, or to the rather saccharine picture of the Divine Mercy Jesus…or not.

What’s most important to me is that this Sunday’s gospel at its heart is all about the commissioning of fearful disciples, locked up and sealed off from a threatening world. What the Risen Jesus does is send these disciples armed with the Spirit of Jesus to do two things: (1) be instruments of peace and (2) be always ready to forgive. That’s how we have been called to be channels of God’s mercy, for God’s Word continues to invite faith and bestow life. Call it what you want, this Sunday is a wonderful occasion for all of us to understand more clearly our own ministry of peace and forgiveness.

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB


Particular Items

Archived Bulletins: For past bulletins, click here.

Second Collection: Today there will be a second ollection will be for the Home Missions in the United States.

Divine Mercy Sunday: The message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread.

In a decree dated 23 May 2000, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments stated that “throughout the world the Second Sunday of Easter will receive the name Divine Mercy Sunday, a perennial invitation to the Christian world to face, with confidence in divine benevolence, the difficulties and trials that mankind will experience in the years to come.”

North Beach Citizens Dinner: Our neighbors over at North Beach Citizens, who provide outreach to the homeless, will host their annual benefit dinner here in our gym on April 19. Rose Pistola restaurant is providing the dinner, which will be served at 6 PM. Director and winemaker Francis Ford Coppola, the honorary chair, is donating his Francis Coppola Presents wine. Tickets are $125 for adults and $50 for children under 13 and can be purchased by calling (415) 772-0918.

Parish Council: On Thursday, April 23, the Parish Council will meet at 7:00 PM, in the rectory.

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.

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.

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!

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:

Colette Urdahl-Pappas. Anyone who attends the Sunday 11:45 AM Italian or Latin Mass knows Colette! She serves every single week. Colette has been a part of Sts. Peter and Paul’s Church and school her whole life. She was baptized by Fr. Armand Oliveri in 1964 and attended Sts Peter and Paul’s school until she graduated in 1979. While she was attending school, Colette was very active in the Girls club, helped out at the bazaar, serving at the Cioppino Dinners, and assisting her teachers before and after school. Shortly after she got married (by Fr. Al Pestun, in 1995), Colette began assisting as an alter server at the Italian Mass, and a few years later became a Eucharistic Minister. Last month, Colette donated a professional cleaning of our “La Madonna delle Grazie” statue just in time for Easter. (If anyone wishes to donate the cleaning of any other statues in the church, which can sure use it, please call the Church office!)

God Bless her!

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.

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.

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.
