24th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

Isaiah 50:5-9a; James 2:14-18; Mark 8:27-35.  Isaiah reminds us, in the first reading, that God will be there to help us face whatever suffering we endure in life. The second reading tells us that faith without good works is dead. In the Gospel, Jesus teaches that to follow him, one must deny oneself, take up one’s cross, and follow him.

 


Domenico 24A Del Tempo Ordinario

Per l’evangelista marco, Gesù è Figlio di Dio perché muore sulla croce, rendendosi pienamente disponsibile come “servo.” Anche noi dobbiamo essere come Lui, uscendo da noi stessi, dai nostri desideri di potere, dalla ricerca di possesso per aprirci agli altri.

 

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer

 

 

"Tipping Points" are "the levels at which the momentum for change becomes unstoppable." Malcolm Gladwell defines a tipping point as the moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point. His book, The Tipping Point seeks to explain and describe the "mysterious" sociological changes that mark everyday life.

Mark’s gospel selection for this Sunday is a biblical example of a “tipping point” in the structure of Mark’s gospel narrative; in the understanding of the identity of Jesus as Messiah; and in the understanding of discipleship and suffering.

Structurally in the middle of Mark’s gospel, there is a unstoppable momentum change from the story of Jesus was as miracle worker in first eight chapters  to Jesus as teacher of the “Way” to discipleship in the last eight chapters.  The place Jesus does ministry gradually changes from Galilee to Jerusalem.  Abruptly, Jesus’ ministry changes from doing miracles to being in conflict with the Jewish leaders, from teaching the crowds to teaching the disciples, and from misunderstanding to discipleship.  These are all part of the “tipping point.”

There is also a Christological “tipping point” in understanding Jesus not as miracle worker but as Messiah who will suffer.  With this first prediction there is an unstoppable momentum to the cross and resurrection.

The third “Tipping point” of the gospel is in understanding of what is means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ who suffered and died.  To follow Jesus a disciple must take up his/her cross and follow Jesus.  Suffering does, indeed, lie at the heart of sharing in the mission of Jesus.

To the end of the gospel of Mark, Peter and the rest of the disciples never did seem to experience a “tipping point.”  Peter comes close in today’s gospel; but Peter and the rest of the disciples will abandon Jesus on his way to crucifixion and death.  In the face of Peter’s misunderstanding and the disciples’ future abandonment of Jesus, we who hear Mark’s gospel must take the place of Peter and the others as disciples of Jesus by taking up the cross and following Jesus.

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Choose Life! "Most of us assume that we have basic rights that come with special dignity of being human. These rights are inherent to human nature. They’re part of who we are. Nobody can take them away. But if there is no Creator, and nothing fundamental and unchangeable about human nature, and if “nature’s God” is kicked out of the public conversation, then our rights become the product of social convention. But social conventions can change. That means the definition of who is and who isn’t “human” can change.


American public life needs a framework that is friendly to religious belief because society can’t support its moral claims about freedom and rights with rational and secular arguments alone. In fact, to the degree that our society encourages a culture of unbelief, it undermines its own grounding. It causes its own decline by destroying the moral coherence of a public square in which all are respected and treated as equals."
-Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia, “Life Matters: Religious Liberty and the American Soul,” 2012.

Welcome, Archbishop Cordileone! Saints Peter and Paul parish welcomes our new Archbishop, Salvatore Joseph Cordileone! Bishop Cordileone, one of the youngest bishops in the United States (he is 56) comes to us from the Diocese of Oakland. Before that he served as Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of San Diego. Bishop Cordileone serves as the as the chairman of the U.S. Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage. He will be installed as our new Archbishop on the Feast of St. Francis, October 4.

There is a Saints Peter and Paul connection also: his dad was baptized here in 1922, and the family lived over on Lombard Street. Our good outgoing Archbishop George Niederauer noted that Archbishop Cordileone "has many ties to the Church in San Francisco; indeed, his father was born here. In recent years, as we have served as brother bishops in the Bay Area and the Province of San Francisco, I have come to know him as an energetic, hard-working, prayerful and faith-filled shepherd to his people."

We welcome and we pray for Archbishop Cordileone, and we thank Archbishop Niederauer for all the service he has given to the people of God!

 

Update: As most people know Archbishop-designate Cordileone was stopped at a DUI checkpoint in San Diego early Saturday morning as he was driving his mother and a priest friend home from a party. He was found to have over the legal limit of blood alcohol. Officers on the scene described his demeanor as "calm," "amiable," and "somewhat apologetic" and said that "He said he'd been drinking. But he wasn't a stumbling, falling-down drunk." His Excellency was booked and released the following day. He issued the following statement on Monday:

"While visiting in San Diego this past weekend, I had dinner at the home of some friends along with a priest friend visiting from outside the country and my mother, who lives near San Diego State University. While driving my mother home, I passed through a DUI checkpoint the police had set up near the SDSU campus before I reached her home, and was found to be over the California legal blood alcohol level.

"I apologize for my error in judgment and feel shame for the disgrace I have brought upon the Church and myself. I will repay my debt to society and I ask forgiveness from my family and my friends and co-workers at the Diocese of Oakland and the Archdiocese of San Francisco. I pray that God, in His inscrutable wisdom, will bring some good out of this."

His Excellency in his own Words: Of course, the Archbishop has received intense press scrutiny, particularly over his defense of natural marriage. Here is an opportunity for you to hear the Archbishop in his own words. Immediately below is Archbishop Cordileone's introduction at a press conference at the cathedral. Following that is his explanation of the Church's teaching on Marriage. And after that is his radio interview on the "Reclaiming the Culture" show where he discusses the role of the Church in the public square.

The North Beach Farmer’s Market is held every Sunday from 10AM to 2PM on Powell between Union and Columbus. The growers are very nice to the Church, and big supporters of our dinners for the poor, so try and patronize them. And of course the produce is fantastic!


Great video: This year, our beloved Salesian Sisters (properly known as the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians) celebrate the 140th Anniversary of their founding.. There is a new movie coming out about the formation of the daughters, and their founder, St. Mary Mazzarello. It's called, in English, "Main, the House of Happiness." ("Main," pronounced "my-ain", was the nickname of Mary Mozzarello). You can watch the trailer at left


“For Greater Glory” FOR GREATER GLORY is an action epic about the Cristeros War that follows the true life stories of many of those who became martyrs for the faith. This major motion picture, which stars Andy Garcia, Eduardo Verastegui, Eva Longoria, Ruben Blades, and Peter O’Toole opens June 1 in the U.S.

Archbishop Niedereaur gives the movie a thumbs up. The film is a depiction of the uprising against the Mexican government from 1926-1929, when anti-clerical legislation was enforced by the government in an attempt to secularize the country by stamping out the Catholic faith. Church property was seized, all foreign priests expelled, and the monasteries, convents and religious schools closed. In what became the Cristeros War, thousands of Mexican Catholics took up arms in revolt. They were known as the Cristeros and their motto was Viva Cristo Rey!

“Becoming Towers of Strength” Project & Slideshow: It has cost $2.5 million for our tower reinforcement and restoration. In order to cover the cost, the parish had to take out a loan of $1.8 million. Given the dangerous condition of the towers, we had to move immediately to take care of the problems even though we did not have sufficient funds. By the end of this week every parishioner should have received a brochure in the mail describing how you can help. Please visit

http://www.sspeterpaulsf.org/church/towers.html

to see a slideshow depicting the dangerous situation and the repairs made. You will find it eye-opening. There is also a link on that page for online donations in support of the project. “Becoming Towers of Strength” is the duty of this generation of Saints Peter and Paul parishioners, and it is really a project we can be proud of!

Daily Rosary for Life at St. Francis: Our friends over at the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi, at Columbus and Vallejo, now have a daily recitation of the Rosary in the Porziuncola Chapel at 4:30PM. The rosary asks Our Lady of the Angels to intercede so that all Catholic public officials will be or become authentically Pro-Life, embracing and promoting The Gospel of Life. Fr. Greg Coiro now directs the shrine, with daily Mass at 12:15 preceded by confession.

Men’s Winter Coats Needed: We (or rather our homeless neighbors) are ALWAYS in dire need of winter coats for men. If you have a warm coat that you can donate, please bring it by the rectory.

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola have helped many to fulfill their desire to grow in knowledge and love of Jesus and so to follow him in greater freedom. Ignatius planned that the complete Exercises (sometimes offered as a 30-day silent retreat) also be offered as a retreat in everyday life, extended over six months or more. In following this form, the retreatant meets with an individual director weekly and prays an hour and a half daily. Doing the Exercises entails a serious commitment of both time and energy and is appropriate for those already cultivating a generous life of prayer and in regular spiritual direction. If you have an interest in doing the complete Spiritual Exercises in everyday life, our staff would be happy to help you to discern the Spirit’s call and will recommend a director when that is timely. Please contact Fr. Tom Carroll (tcarroll@jrclosaltos.org) at The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos for more information.


 

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 $6,300—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.


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

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.
