Isaiah 43: 16-21; Philippians 3:8-14; John 8:1-11. Isaiah calls the people to recognize how God brings all things to a newness of life. Having become a new person in Christ, Paul expresses the value of a life with Christ and the hope of resurrection. Jesus tells a crowd about to stone an adulterous woman that the one among them who is without sin should cast the first stone.

 


Domenica 5A Di Quaresima

 

Isaia è il profeta della gioia, perché annuncia la fedelità di Dio. San paolo invita a guardare Gesù che ci libera dai peccati. I cristiani, preparandosi alla Rasqua, annunciano che il Signore sta predisponendo i tempi nuovi.

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

The novelist, John Updike, writing in the New York Time Book Review, said that “The Bible is actually rather soft on lust. Jesus’ plea for the adulterous woman…give[s] a genial tinge to his ministry.” In fact, John Updike’s comment is one of the ways to read today’s Gospel of the woman caught in adultery. Another way of interpreting today’s story is to regard it as a cautionary tale against self-righteous judgment.

Actually today’s Gospel is more about Jesus’ invitation to break with old habits for both the Scribes and Pharisees and woman caught in adultery than it is about moral failure (the woman) and manipulative behavior (the Scribes and Pharisees). The woman caught in adultery is invited to embrace a new future of freedom without sin and condemnation. The Scribes and the Pharisees are invited to give up their faulty categories and incomplete definitions in an attempt to control any situation.

It is only Jesus who has the authority to do this. This story, forced into its present position in the Gospel of John, is about Jesus and his relationship to the Law and the religious establishment. It is connected backwards to John 7: 19-24 where Jesus says “Stop judging by appearance, but judge justly.” And it is connected forwards to John 8: 15-16 where Jesus says “You judge by appearances, but I do not judge anyone. And even if I should judge, my judgment is valid, because I am not alone, but it is I and the Father who sent me.”

In the end, Jesus is not “soft on lust” by no means. Jesus calls all of us to a new life, “the prize of God’s upward calling, in Christ Jesus” (2nd Reading: Phil. 3:14).

Habemus Papam! We have a Pope! Pope Francis, (Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of of Buenos Aires, Argentina) is our new Pope. His Holiness, the first Pope from the Americas, and the first pope from the Jesuit order, has already impressed everyone with his deep humility, poverty, and devotion to the poor, the unborn, and the defense of the family.

He has strong ties to the Salesians, too. Fr. Fabian Garcia the provincial of Buenos Aires knew the Holy Father well. He writes: “But of all of my memories there is one that is strongest, most significant, indelible: a man of faith who, every 24th of the month, early in the morning before the doors opened, came to the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians in the suburb of Almagro, celebrated Mass and stayed a good hour praying before the image of the Blessed Virgin which had been blessed by Don Bosco himself.”

Holy Father, our prayers are with you!

Here is the full story about Pope Francis' Salesian connection.

And here is charming article in which Pope Francis' sister speaks of her brother, courtesy of parishioner Franca Marchetti.

Our Students Welcome Pope Francis! Back when he was in the sixth grade, one of our students, Connor Claros started bugging the church sacristan, Mr. David Burbank, to ring the church bells. Mr. Burbank would always say "not now." But one day when Connor asked him, Mr. Burbank told him "only on a special day."

Well, two years later, Connor is now in the eighth grade and that special day has arrived. Connor got two of his friends and went to Mr. Burbank saying "Today is a special day, we have a Pope!" So Mr. Burbank brought the three eighth graders to ring the bells announcing to the people of North Beach that we have a Pope.

Chrism Mass: On Thursday March 21, at 5:30 PM, Archbishop Cordileone, joined by the priests of the Archdiocese, gather at St. Mary’s Cathedral to celebrate the Chrism Mass. This Mass manifests the unity of the priests with their Archbishop and the Archbishop blesses three oils — the oil of catechumens (oleum catechumenorum or oleum sanctorum), the oil of the infirm (oleum infirmorum) and holy chrism (sacrum chrisma) — which will be used in the administration of the sacraments throughout the diocese for the year. Everyone is invited!

The Archbishop’s Annual Appeal for 2013 has begun. Every year the funds raised through this effort are a source of hope and inspiration for many in our archdiocese. This year our parish family of Saints Peter and Paul is obligated to raise $60,100. As a parish, we rely on every family to join together to help us do our part for the vision and mission of the Church. We ask you now to pray that our parish will response generously on this occasion of archdiocesan solidarity.

Defend Marriage! On March 26, the Supreme Court of the United States will hear oral arguments about whether California's ban on same-sex "marriages" violates the constitutional right to "equal protection under the law." The hearings that follow will play significantly in our country's future understanding and treatment of marriage.

Several organizations are working together to sponsor a "March for Marriage" being held in Washimngton DC on March 26, to uphold the understanding of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Our own good Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone will be one of the speakers! The march will be a significant opportunity to promote and defend marriage and the good of our nation, to pray for our Supreme Court justices, and to stand in solidarity with people of good will.

To learn more visit the webpage of the March for Marriage, and the "Life, Marriage, and Liberty" page of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Also, the Novena for the Supreme Court Justices and the attorneys in the case began yesterday. You may find that here.

Join Archbishop Cordileone in Rome! We have a great opportunity to join our new Archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, in Rome, as His Excellency is invested with the Pallium from our next Pope in June. The Pallium is the sign of his authority as Metropolitan. San Francisco is the Metropolitan See for Northern California, parts of Nevada, and Hawaii. Full details of the pilgrimage may be found here.


Lenten Disciplines: Abstinence: Everyone 14 years and older is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all the Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday. 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.

Lenten Opportunities:

Friday Night Mass and Soup Suppers: Every Friday throughout Lent, there will be special Friday Mass in the Church at 6:30 PM, followed by a soup supper in the rectory.

“40 Days for Life” is a PEACEFUL prayer vigil that will takes place at Planned Parenthood Shasta Diablo at 1650 Valencia Street in San Francisco. (Our former Archbishop George Niederauer had called abortion businesses “the Golgotha of our time”). The hope is to have at least one person there in prayer every day of Lent from 8AM to 8PM. To learn more go to: http://www.40daysforlife.com/sanfrancisco/ or call 415-613-8493.

Stations of the Cross: We will observe the Stations of the Cross every Friday in Lent at 1:00PM.

Catholic Charities: Catholic Charities CYO provides a number of opportunities for you to help the less fortunate during Lent. You can download a flyer with all the information here.


Lenten Parish Project: Help Build Salesian Schools in South Sudan: As we know our Salesian mission involves practically every country on earth, especially the poorest. In the new nation of South Sudan, where most people are living on less than a dollar a day, the Salesians are planning to build “100 schools for 50,000 children in South Sudan.” They need our help! (Example: a 6’ mahogany wood and iron pipe bench/desk costs $150). To learn more, call the parish office at 415-421-0809.


Choose Life: “Federal law had been generous in protecting the rights of individuals and institutions to act according to their religious beliefs and moral convictions. But political forces are now injecting themselves into the lives of Catholics and Church organizations, sub-stituting their own secular ideology for the Church’s beliefs.

Some say the Church should leave politics alone and concentrate on teaching the faith and serving the needy. But what if the State says the Church may not follow her teachings, even in her own institutions? What if the State limits the Church’s ability to serve the needy? What if it says a Catholic nurse has no right to her livelihood because she will not help perform abortions? What if the Church cannot act on her teaching that marriage is a union of one man and one woman?” -United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Bulletin Insert on Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.


 

The “Year of Faith” Our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, declared 2012-2013 to be the year of faith. This year began on 11 October 2012, the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Ecumenical Vatican Council. To find resources that can help us in living our faith, visit our "Year of faith" page, and also the Vatican's English language "Year of Faith" page.

If you would like to suggest an event to help our parish during the Year of Faith, please call the parish office, or email gibbons@salesiansspp.org

Here are some Year of Faith events at St. Mary's Cathedral:

Saints and Sacraments in the Year of Faith: In conjunction with the “Year of Faith,” St. Mary’s Cathedral will host a lecture series called “Saints and Sacraments in the Year of Faith” led by Stephen Cordova. The free lectures will be on Sundays, after the 11:00AM Mass, in the Msgr. Bowe Room.

Eucharistic Holy Hour for Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty: The US Catholic Bishops are implementing a five-part strategy to address life, marriage and religious liberty concerns. One pillar of the strategy is a monthly Eucharistic holy hour in Cathedrals and parishes. The holy hour for life, marriage and Religious Liberty, led by our new Archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, will be at St. Mary’s Cathedral, from 2:30-3:30PM, on the last Sunday of each month. (On Easter Sunday the Holy Hour and Vespers will begin at 4:30 PM).

And this is cool! Read the Catechism in a year! The “Year of Faith” also commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the publishing of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Pope Benedict has encouraged us to study and reflect on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Well, here's an easy way to do it! Go to www.flocknote.com/catechism. Enter your email address and - starting October 11, 2012 - you'll start getting a little bit of the Catechism emailed to you every morning. Read that little bit every day and you'll read the whole catechism in a year!

“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!

You can donate to the restoration project by clicking on the "Donate Now " button at left. Select "Tower and Facade Reinforcement" from the "program Designation" drop-down menu.


Pregnant? Need Help? Call 1-800-910-0191: That’s the message of the Gabriel Project, a ministry of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, committed to the that support of pregnant mothers and their unborn children. The Gabriel Project works so that no woman will feel she needs to have an abortion due to being poor or alone. We need help to get that message out! The Gabriel Project now has a chapter at Saints Peter and Paul. Please let any women you know who is pregnant that we stand ready to help!

Holy Name Society. The Holy Name Society is a men’s group which expresses devotion to the Holy Name of God by attending weekly Mass and setting good examples for youth, by praying and saying the rosary. A group Mass is celebrated at 8:45 AM on the second Sunday of each month. The Society was founded more than 700 years ago! The SS. Peter and Paul HNS is seeking new members. School dads are especially invited to join. 415-421-0809 or Gemini6824@hotmail.com for more information.

Legion of Mary: The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin, Ireland in 1921, and is now in most countries in the world. The Legion’s priority is the spiritual and social welfare of each person.

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.
