All Saints


Home

 

Revelation 7:2-4: 9-14; 1 John 3:1-3; Matthew 5:1-12a. The first reading from the Book of Revelation offers a majestic vision of the great multitude of the saints in heaven. The second reading tells of the great love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we may be called the children of God. In the Gospel, Jesus teaches the eight beatitudes, which outline the essential virtues necessary for living a life of authentic discipleship.

 


Tutti i Santi

Gioisce la Chiesa per l’esaltazione di tanti suoi figli, beati in cielo e modello di vita per i fratelli in terra. I santi stanno davanti a Dio per ottenerci forza e speranza nella lotta contro il male. Dopo aver adottato lo stile del Vangelo, facendo della loro vita un dono, ora godono con pienezza la visione di Dio.

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

All Saints is the day to honor the saints, those with a capital “S” and those with a innumerable small “s.” The saints are the special people in our lives who taught us to love and hope in faith in good times and times of challenge and difficulty.

The first reading from Revelation speaks of challenge and difficulty for the baby Church. The “Beast” was attacking the Church and persecuting the faithful.  The sign of the “Beast” was 666, a numerical representation of the Emperor Nero’s name who persecuted the early Christians. (666 Filbert St. is the address of the rectory of Saints Peter and Paul.  It is only a strange coincidence and is in no way connected with Nero and the “Beast.”) Revelation was written to give courage and hope for Christians suffering, promising ultimate victory over sin and evil in the world.  The vision of John’s Apocalypse is the 144,000 sealed with Baptism and fire of the Holy Spirit, wearing the signature white robes washed in the Blood of the Lamb.  Our faith believes that 144,000 is only a symbolic number that stands for countless and nameless Christians marked with the sign of faith.

666 should not be for us an evil sign, but a reminder that we can survive sin and evil, survive any time of great distress, especially with the example of the lives of the holy ones, who have shown us the way and give us hope to lead holy and saintly Christian lives.

-Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Mother Cabrini Mass: On Friday, November 13, (her feastday), His Excellency Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone will be here to celebrate the 12:15 Mass in honor of St. Frances Xavier (Mother) Cabrini, the patroness of immigrants. 

In 2010, we had written about Mother: “One of the recurring motifs in Mother’s life was her inability to get what she thought she wanted. She always ended up following the will of God, but almost never in ways she would have chosen for herself. First, she wanted to join a religious order. But the Mother Superior thought her health was too poor, and she was not accepted. So Mother Cabrini had to created a religious order of her own. Then she wanted to go to serve in Asia, but the Holy Father sent her to America. In America, when she wanted to open a house in New Orleans, the Virgin Mary instead convinced her to work in a hospital in New York. Mother Cabrini was terrified of the ocean, would have gladly never even seen it, yet she had to cross it 19 times in the service of God. What a servant! ‘Her attitude to every difficulty was ‘Who is doing this? We?—or the Lord?’ But she cultivated the efficiency of herself and her sisters to the utmost, and her determination and business acumen in the cause of charity won the respect of the most hard-headed and hard hearted Americans.’” Mother Cabrini, pray for us!


RISE! 2015: The RISE! 2015 Conference is a two day event on November 13 and 14 at Our Lady of Peace Church in Santa Clara. RISE! 2015 follows the invitation of Pope Francis to instruct and encourage youth to rediscover the human vocation to love, and to rise “against the widespread tendency to reduce love to its sexual aspect alone, deprived of its essential characteristics of beauty, communion, fidelity and responsibility.” There are three programs: for teens, for young adults, and for adults. Mass, confession, great speakers! “God has assigned as a duty to every man the dignity of every woman” St. Pope John Paul II. Visit www.riseba.org for full details, and check out the informational video below:

From the Catechism: The ‘Our Father.’ “How did the Our Father come about? The Our Father came about at the request of one of Jesus' disciples, who saw his Master praying and wanted to learn from Jesus himself how to pray correctly.

What structure does the Our Father have? The Our Father consists of seven petitions to our merciful Father in heaven. The first three petitions relate to God and the right way of serving him. The last four petitions present our basic human needs to our Father in heaven.

What position does the Our Father hold among prayers? The Our Father is ‘the most perfect prayer’ (St. Thomas Aquinas) and the ‘summary of the whole Gospel’ (Tertullian). The Our Father is more than a prayer - it is a path that leads directly into the heart of our Father. The early Christians recited this original prayer of the Church, which is entrusted to every Christian at Baptism, three times a day. We, too, should not let a day pass without trying to recite the Lord's Prayer with our lips, to take it to heart, and to make it come true in our lives. YOUCAT, Questions 512-514. For more, Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 2803-2806.


Choose Life! Parental Notification Initiative Petitions: In California, a girl under age 18 can’t get a cavity filled, or an aspirin dispensed by the school nurse without a parent knowing. But a physician's assistant, nurse, or midwife can perform an abortion on a young girl without informing a parent. 39 states now have laws on the books requiring that a parent be notified when there daughter is considering having an abortion. California is not one of them, with the result that 20% of all abortions on minor girls in the US take place right here. In addition to undermining the family, this practice allows adult men to abuse underage girls, and keep the act hidden. Californians’ for Parental Rights is working to get an initiative on next year’s ballot overturning this situation. If you’d like to see this on the ballot, you can sign a petition in the parish office. To learn more, visit www.caparentalrights.org/


Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA): If you are interested in becoming a Catholic or completing your Sacraments of Initiation of First Communion and/or Confirmation, or you know someone who is, please contact Janet Ross at 771-9130, or email to janetross9849@yahoo.com

Classes are from 9:45 to 11:00 AM, Sundays.  Registration is going on, inquiries to ete@sspeterpaulsf.org or the parish office at 415.421-0809.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word: We are launching a Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) program! Children ages 3-6 are invited to participate each Sunday during the 8:45 mass.  Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) is a way for our youngest members to hear the Gospel proclaimed in language they can understand and to make connections with the Gospel in their own lives. Children (and interested parents) will be dismissed to the gym with their catechists prior to the First Reading and will return during the Offertory procession. The program will start Sunday, September 13. No registration is required. For more info contact Eileen Emerson-Boles at eileenemerson@yahoo.com.


More Choose Life! You can watch the videos of representatives of Planned Parenthood and other organizations discussing the trade in parts of the bodies of aborted babies. If they do not make you furious and disgust you, you should probably ask yourself why.

Saturday Rosary & Chaplet of Divine Mercy at St. Francis: Our friends over at the Porziuncula at the Shrine of St. Francis, at Columbus and Vallejo, are now praying the Rosary every Saturday at 2:30 PM, followed by the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3PM.

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:

 


New Archdiocesan Young Adult Ministry: the Archdiocese of San Francisco has opened an office of Young Adult Ministry to reach out to those of us who are 18-40 years of age.

Marriage Resources

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.”


Our Archdiocese is blessed with a very capable and hardworking Director of the Ministry of Marriage and Family Life, Mr. Ed Hopfner. Here some resources from his office:

It's not your Grandmother's Family Planning
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a modern method a couple can use to regulate fertility. It is based on up-to-date medical and scientific research and replaces the old ‘rhythm method’ which went out of favor in the 1950’s.  It is individualized for each couple – because every woman is unique. Contact Ed Hopfner for more information-- (415) 614-5547 or by email at hopfnere@sfarchdiocese.org

Family Planning can improve marriages
Natural Family Planning (NFP) has been shown to improve marriages - published studies have shown increased marital satisfaction. It also greatly improves marital communications. NFP is free after the initial training, and empowers couples by giving them highly accurate information about their own fertility, rather than relying on a third party.  Finally, NFP couples typically have extremely low divorce rates; one study of 1100 couples in CA showed a divorce rate of less than 2% over 24 years. Contact Ed Hopfner for more information-- (415) 614-5547 or by email at hopfnere@sfarchdiocese.org.

Do you know someone struggling with infertility?
Modern medicine has made great strides in helping couples overcome infertility, by restoring reproductive health through the application of Natural Procreative Technology™.  Yet many people, even in the medical profession, are still unfamiliar with it, even though it has a success rate of up to 75% in restoring natural fertility.  Contact Ed Hopfner for more information-- (415) 614-5547 or by email at hopfnere@sfarchdiocese.org.

CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR MARRIAGE?
Call Retrouvaille (415) 893-1005

Do you feel lost and alone?
Are you hurt, frustrated, or angry with each other?
Have you thought about separation or divorce?
Would you simply like to improve communication skills?

In Vatican City, Sep 26, 2008, Pope Benedict XVI met with Retrouvaille participants an explained that when a marriage is suffering, the spouses are facing an opportunity that "will help them to grow." Guided by Mary and with the help of the Lord, their love will be purified, deepened and strengthened.

Retrouvaille is the name of a Catholic Ministry designed to help heal and renew marriages. The word Retrouvaille simply means ‘rediscovery’.  The program offers the chance to rediscover yourself, your spouse, and a loving relationship in your marriage.   Retrouvaille is not just for hurting couples and welcomes all couples wanting to bring new life to your marriage.  Couples of all faiths and those with no faith tradition are welcome and encouraged to attend.  The ultimate goal of Retrouvaille is solely to help save marriages.

Retrouvaille is not a retreat, marriage counseling, or a sensitivity group. There are neither group dynamics nor group discussions on the weekend. It is not a time for hurting; it is a time for healing.  For more information go to ……www.retrouvaille.org.  Next SF weekend -  Nov 6-8  (East Bay Sept 18-20, San Jose Aug 14-16, Sacramento July 10-12, Oct 9-11)

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

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.
