Fourth Sunday of Advent


Home

 

2 Samuel 7:1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16; Romans 16: 25-27; Luke 1:26-38. Today’s reading from the Second Book of Samuel tells of God’s promise to David that his kingdom will endure forever. Saint Paul ends his Letter to the Romans with a doxology praising God through Jesus Christ. Saint Luke’s Gospel describes the announcement of the birth of Jesus and recounts how Mary says yes to God’s plan for her and the world.

 


Domenica 4A Di Avvento

l Signore ha chiesto agli uomini di preparare il loro cuore ad accogliere degnamente la nascita del Salvatore. Maria ha vissuto I giorni prima del Natale con esemplare intensità: teniamoci uniti a lei che porta nel grembo il Figlio, per trovarci pronti ad accoglierlo nella notte santa.

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

For the first three Sundays of Advent we have prepared remotely for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and mixed in, with some confusion, expectation for the coming of Jesus in the flesh and the second coming of Jesus.  The celebration for the Nativity of Jesus is upon us and we ponder the mystery of the Incarnation, the Word made flesh.  This Fourth Sunday of Advent, our thoughts are centered on Mary, full of grace, who answered: Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.  May it be done to me according to your word.”

Scripture scholars call the Annunciation to Mary and the rest of the Christmas stories “the infancy narratives.”  These infancy narratives are found only in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. In each of these gospels the Gospel in miniature is presented in two chapters.  What you see in the Christmas crèche is a mixing of Luke and Matthew, with a concentration on Luke’s manger, stable, angels and shepherds.  Matthew is good only for the star and the Magi.  Matthew’s account sees Jesus as the New Moses where King Herod becomes the Pharaoh trying to kill the baby Jesus.  Luke’s account sees Jesus incarnate in a specific place and time of history bringing peace and joy to those graced by God’s presence and as a challenge to imperial power of Rome that brings peace by war and brutality.  Contrary to what we do with the stable and star in Bethlehem, my advice is to read Matthew and Luke separately, for they act as an overture or coming attractions to their own gospels.

To parishioners and visitors alike, a very happy and holy Christmas!

–Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Congratulations, Lisa on this great and well-deserved honor!

Eucharistic Adoration/Holy Hour: Every Wednesday, we have Holy Hour from 7:00-8:00 PM. Adoration is followed by scripture study, at 8PM, in the rectory. Parking available.

Great Christmas Gifts for Youth: The Church bookstore has a selection from the "Vision" books series. These are biographies of saints for young people about 10-15 years old, although adults can read them with profit as well. They are all $9.95, and make excellent Christmas gifts!


Christmas Legends:The Robin: A small brown bird was perched on a beam in a stable in Bethlehem watching the people from many lands who had come with gifts for the newborn Child. The little bird could see the great adoration of the people as they knelt before the Babe, and was able to sense that something wonderful had happened.

After a time, the visitors departed and the Holy Family settled down to rest; and the little bird prepared to sleep, too. But just as he was dozing off, he noticed that the fire, built to keep the Child warm, was dying out. Quickly he flew down and began fanning the coals with his wings. The fire became brighter until the feathers on the little bird's breast radiated the glow and showed a beautiful red.

Although he grew very tired, the small bird stayed by the fire all night, fanning it to keep the blaze bright and the Christ Child warm.

Since that night the robin's breast has remained a glowing red, a mark of the unselfish love and devotion shown by that bird in Bethlehem.

Choose Life! “Pope Francis has seen a deeper link between the poor and the unborn. They are both among the first victims of a ‘throw-away society,’ an attitude that sees people as disposable when they do not serve the selfish interests of those with more power.” —“Poverty and Abortion: A Vicious Cycle,” 2014 Respect Life Program USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities


From the Catechism: “When does an authority act legitimately? An authority acts legitimately when it works for the sake of the common good and applies just methods of attaining the goals thereof. The people in a State must be able to rely on the fact that they live under a ‘government of laws’, which has rules that are binding for all. No one is obliged to obey laws that are arbitrary and unjust or that contradict the natural moral order. In that case there is a right, or in some circumstances even the duty, to resist.” YOUCAT, question 326.


Mark your Calendars! Walk for Life West Coast: The 11th Annual Walk for Life West Coast, the largest annual gathering of Catholics in the Bay Area, will be on January 24, 2015.

And the Walk for Life has a new opportunity: the Father John Malloy 5K Run For Life! The run, which honors our previous pastor here at SS. Peter and Paul, who also served as the founding chaplain of the Walk, will begin at 7:30AM on January 24, in Golden Gate Park. Come Walk (and run) for the littlest among us on the feast of St. Francis de Sales, patron of the Salesians! As always, we will have all night Adoration for Life on the Friday before the Walk. Please call 421-0809 to schedule a time. Learn more at www.walkforlifewc.com

Gabriel Zavatarro and Al Baccari's book "The Italian Cathedral of the West" which tells the story of the Sts. Peter and Paul church community from its founding through 1984 (first one hundred years) served as a primary source for the series, along with countless interviews of local Italian Americans who have lived part of the history. Look for the series to air on Channel 9 sometime in 2015. Also, consider purchasing the history of Saints Peter and Paul, available for $25 in the bookstore!

The Don Bosco Celebration is Coming! 2015 marks the bicentennial of the birth of St. John Bosco, founder of the Salesians and the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (the third largest men’s order and the largest women’s order in the Church!)

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.”


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!"

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.
