Fourth Sunday of Lent
Laetare (Rejoice!) Sunday


Home

 

2 Chronicles 36:14-16, 19-23; Ephesians 2:4-10; John 3:14-21. In the first reading, the chosen people of God are free to return to Israel. In Ephesians we hear of God’s rich mercy. Jesus teaches in the Gospel that God sent him as a sacrifice to save us. He compares his being lifted up on the cross to the bronze serpent lifted by Moses to heal the Israelites.

 


Domenica 4A Di Quaresima

È urgente la conversione che si attua su una via ben definite: perdere la propria vita, per ritrovarla; rinunciare a se stessi per aprirsi al bene di Dio; dire di no al peccato, voce dell’egoismo, per godere la vita della grazia fonte di gioia e di serenità.

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

Although it seems to have died down, at least in The Chronicle, the question of dogma and morality clauses to be inserted into faculty handbooks of the four Catholic high schools of the Archdiocese of San Francisco reveals both a cultural and theological divide among both bishops and Catholic laity.  It is most evident in the question of the difference between teacher and minister.

For a partial answer to this question, I would propose we look at what Jesus says in today’s Gospel.  Jesus proclaims the revelation of God’s love for the world manifested in Jesus: “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might perish but might have eternal life.”  The Church’s mission is to spread the salvific glory of God.  St. Irenaeus said, “The glory of God is the human being fully alive.”

Since Vatican II the Church, both hierarchy and laity, are called to be holy in mission.  Everyone by baptism is called to proclaim that “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.”  This understanding of mission and ministry has been transformed by Vatican II.  Yves Congar, the force behind this momentous transformation wrote: “…final salvation will be achieved by a wonderful re-floating of our earthly vessel rather than by a transfer of the survivors to another ship wholly built by God.”  In other words, it is the world and not the Church alone that God wills to save.  To accomplish this is the ministry of the baptized.

Despite the legal issues involved in teacher contracts, teachers and administrators of all Catholic schools are called to service as ministers of the young to become human beings fully alive, to live life more abundantly in Christ Jesus, Our Lord.

Archived Bulletins: For past bulletins, go here.

Second Collection: This week end we have a second collection for Catholic Relief Services. Please be generous!

Easter Memorial Flowers: After each Mass for the next few weeks, parishioners will be in front of the church taking orders for Easter memorial flowers. You can remember a loved one and decorate the church for the Easter Season at the same time!

Lenten Penance Service: On Monday, March 16, at 7:00PM, there will be Lenten Penance Service in the church with individual confession. All parishioners are urged to attend, get absolved from our sins and clear our consciences in preparation for Holy Week and the Passion of Our Lord.

St. Patrick: On Tuesday we celebrate St. Patrick, the co-patron of our Archdiocese. Because he is our co-patron, the day is a Solemnity in our Archdiocese, which means the Church dispenses us for the day from our Lenten resolutions. So eat some ice cream or have a glass of wine in honor of the good saint!

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.

St. Joseph: Thursday is the Solemnity of good St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. So, once again, Holy Mother Church allows us a day of dispensation in Lent. St. Joseph, Most Pure, Most Faithful, Most Patient, Hope of the Sick, Patron of the Dying, Mainstay of Families, and Protector of Holy Church, pray for us!

Operation Rice Bowl: Operation Rice Bowl, the long-standing initiative of Catholic Relief Services to help the poorest of our brothers and sisters is underway. Rice Bowl box are available on the tables by the entrance to the Church or in the parish office, and may be returned to the big Operation Rice Bowl receptacle i the sanctuary or to the parish office.


Archbishop’s Pastoral Visit & Confirmations: We are blessed this year to receive a pastoral visit from our Archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone. His Excellency will be here from March 21-23. On Saturday, March 21, at 11:00AM. he will celebrate the Confirmation of some of our students. That will be followed by a luncheon, then meetings with our priests. On Sunday, March 22, he will celebrate a special Mass at 10:30 AM. Because of the special Mass, we will not have an 8:45, 10:15, or 11:45 AM Mass that day, but instead a single unified Mass. A reception, where parishioners can meet the Archbishop, will follow. At 1:00 PM, His Excellency will meet with the Parish Council and Finance Committee. On Monday, March 23, the Archbishop will celebrate a 9:00AM school Mass, then will visit our school, and have lunch with our faculty and staff.

Welcome, Archbishop Cordileone!


The Archbishop's New School Initiative: On February 15, Fr. John's pastor's message discussed Archbishop Cordileone's new initiative for Catholic High Schools. In late February, the San Francisco Chronicle published an op-ed opposing His Excellency's position.

On February 11, the Chronicle published a thoughtful op-ed by Bob Laird, from the Cardinal Newman Society, supporting the Archbishop. You can read it here.

On March 5, Fr. Mark Doherty, the Chaplain of Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep, did a splendid job of explaining His Excellency's initiative on KPCC radio.

And the SF Weekly, (of all places!), has a funny satirical piece about parents being shocked that Catholic schools might actually adhere to the Catholic faith.

Here is a video of Archbishop Cordileone's meeting with the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle discussing the school inititiave:

 


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

Stations of the Cross: We will observe the Stations of the Cross every Friday in Lent at 12:45 PM.

Lenten Penanace Service: On Monday, March 16, at 7:00PM, there will be Lenten Penance Service in the church with individual confession. All parishioners are urged to attend, get absolved from our sins and clear our consciences in preparation for Holy Week and the Passion of Our Lord.

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.

Choose Life! “Joseph was the one chosen for the role of father to the Son of God incarnate in Mary’s womb, and he fulfilled this role so faithfully. Within his universal patronage, it is certainly fitting in our times that he be given a new title as ‘Patron of the Unborn.’ No one can be a better defender of innocent, helpless life in the womb. No one is a better model of fatherhood to parents of pre-born children. No one can more fittingly aid in the process of healing and reconciliation for those who grieve and agonize over having committed the sin of abortion. No one is a better image for women who have been hurt by men unwilling to accept fatherhood of the child they engendered.” –Joseph, Patron of the Unborn, Oblates of St. Joseph.

From the Catechism: “What is the soul? The soul is what makes every individual person a man: his spiritual life-principle and inmost being. The soul causes the material body to be a living human body. Through his soul, man is a creature who can say ‘I’ and stand before God as an irreplaceable individual.

Men are bodily and spiritual creatures. A man's spirit is more than a function of his body and cannot be explained in terms of man’s material composition. Reason tells us that there must be a spiritual principle that is united with the body but not identical to it. We call it the ‘soul’. Although the soul's existence cannot be ‘proved’ scientifically, man cannot be understood as a spiritual or intellectual being without accepting this spiritual principle that transcends matter.

From where does man get his soul? The human soul is created directly by God and is not ‘produced’ by the parents.

Man’s soul cannot be the product of an evolutionary development out of matter or the result of a generative union of the father and mother. With every man, a unique, spiritual person comes into the world; the Church expresses this mystery by saying that God gives him a soul, which cannot die; even if the person loses his body in death, he will find it again in the resurrection. To say, ‘I have a soul’, means that God created me not only as a creature but as a person and has called me to a never-ending relationship with him. (YOUCAT questions 62-63).” Learn more: Catechism of the Catholic Church (362-368).

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 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.
