Saints Peter and Paul
Apostles, Martyrs, Our Patrons


Home

 

Acts 12:1-11; 2 Timothy 4:6-8; 17-18; Matthew 16:13-19. Having been imprisoned by King Herod, Peter is miraculously freed to continue his mission. Paul writes to Timothy about God’s faithfulness. The Gospel recalls a key question asked by Jesus: Who do you say that I am? For his answer, Simon Peter is entrusted with the keys to the Kingdom of heaven.

 


San Pietro e Paolo

Pietro, pescatore di Galilea, è chiamato da Gesù a diventare pescatore di uomini; Paolo, il fariseo osservante della legge, diviene per elezione Apostolo della genti. Sulla loro testimonianza trova fondamento la nostra fede. Dalla loro fedeltà nasce lo stimolo a dire “sì” al Signore, che ci chiama donandoci la fede.


From the Pastor's Computer 

I want to wish the 2399 families that are registered in our parish of Saints Peter and Paul a happy feast day of our two patrons, St. Peter and St. Paul.  St. Peter on the high altar holds the key to the kingdom as a sign of his primacy.  This Sunday’s Gospel states that “You are Peter and upon this rock I will build the church.”  St. Paul perched on the other side of the high altar holds the sword of martyrdom that is his “crown of righteousness.”

The average attendance at the seven weekend Masses is about 900 persons.  More than half of them are visitors!  That means about 400 parishioners attend Mass on any given Sunday. You do the math.  A very small percentage of registered parishioners go to church at Saints Peter and Paul.

Let me give you the sacramental statistics for 2013 and for half of 2014.  Baptisms in 2013-66, in 2014- 51.  First Holy Communions in 2013-29, in 2014-41; Confirmation in 2013-26, in 2014-38; Marriages in 2013-52, in 2014-21; Funerals in 2013-67, in 2014-33.  Many of the funerals are for those who once lived in the parish, moved away, and return in death.  I would hazard a guess that only 10 funerals this year were actual parishioners.

And lastly, Sunday collections, counting in Christmas and Easter for 2013 was $316,686.  The average collection for any Sunday is $4950.  If you add Christmas and Easter, the average collection is $5975.  This year the average Sunday collection is $4721.  For the year, the Sunday collection, counting in Christmas and Easter will be $311,265.

Numbers and statistics are important, but not as much as the wonderful spirit and generosity of those faithful and active parishioners who decorate, lector, teach, lead the music, take communion to the sick, distribute communion, use collection envelopes, donate regularly and volunteer.  You make it all happen!  Thank you.

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Sad News: Our dear Fr. Harold Danielson will be reassigned at the end of July. He will serve at Don Bosco Tech in Rosemead as a confessor/chaplain to the students. Father came to us in 2004. We will greatly miss his kind spirit, his incredible patience, his quiet but deep teaching, his magnificent voice.

Al Mengon, who has been celebrating the Italian Mass. We thank Fr. Harold for all his service, and we welcome Fr. Al!

March for Marriage 2014: Here is video from the June 18 rally in defense of marriage in Washington D.C., featuring our good Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.

Great Opportunity at the Dominican School! From July 16 to 20, the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley will host a colloquiam exploring the question "What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?"

From the description: "This colloquium, the first in what is planned to be a triennial series on the intersection between philosophy and theology, seeks to continue the venerable Dominican tradition of bringing together philosophers and theologians to explore the theological implications of contemporary work in philosophy, as well as philosophical questions that emerge from theological inquiry. How can recent developments in Analytic, Phenomenological, Thomist, and other schools of thought give new life to the concerns of theology? What current theological themes present challenges or opportunities for philosophy? The theme of this first colloquium is intentionally broad, so as to raise issues for further exploration in the series."

The colloquiam will feature world renowned philosophers and theologians including Professor Edward Feser of Pasadena City College, John Searle of UC Berkeley, Robert Sokolowski of the Catholic University of America and more! For more information, visit dspt.edu/conversation2014

From the Catechism: Why is marriage indissoluble? “Marriage is triply indissoluble: first, because the essence of love is mutual self-giving without reservation; second, because it is an image of God's unconditional faithfulness to his creation; and third, because it represents Christ's devotion to his Church, even unto death on the Cross.

At a time when 50 percent of marriages in many places end in divorce, every marriage that lasts is a great sign - ultimately a sign for God. On this earth, where so much is relative, people ought to believe in God, who alone is absolute. That is why everything that is not relative is so important: someone who speaks the truth absolutely or is absolutely loyal. Absolute fidelity in marriage is not so much a human achievement as it is a testimony to the faithfulness of God, who is there even when we betray or forget him in so many ways. To be married in the Church means to rely more on God's help than on one's own resources of love.” YOUCat questions 263-264. For more: Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1612-1617.

Choose Life! "Conception is the beginning of human life. From the time that an ovum is fertilized a new life begins that is neither that of the father nor of the mother. It is rather the life of a new human being with his own growth. It would never become human if it were not human already.” –Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Declaration on Procured Abortion, 1974.

The photo above proves the CDF statement. It shows the same child before birth in the womb, and after being born.

Choose Life! “Marriage needs to be strengthened, not redefined. Cohabitation, divorce, and contraception all erode marriage’s meaning as a public, total, lifelong, and fruitful communion of persons between husband and wife. The latest challenge to marriage, the proposal that sexual difference doesn’t matter, removes the very basis of marriage’s meaning as a one-flesh communion, open to children, making the definition of marriage in law (and thereby culture) open to limitless variation and ultimately meaningless.” –United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “Marriage: Unique for a Reason. One Man, One Woman, For Life.”

Pray for the Defense of Marriage and Supreme Court Justice: The USCCB's bulletin insert asking us to pray for the defense of marriage can be downloaded here.


More 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.

USA Today had a very good interview with His Excellency earlier this year.

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.


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!"

In the Bay Area, call:

Fr. Mark Taheny (415) 461-0704
Fr. Anselm Ramelow, O.P. (415) 567-7824

Confidential Courage Hotline (650) 450-2286


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.
