Second Sunday of Easter
Sunday of the Divine Mercy


Home

 

Acts 5:12-16; Revelation 1:9-11a, 12-13, 17-19; John 20:19-31. The first reading tells of the Apostles working many signs and wonders among the people in Jerusalem. The second reading tells of the personal price John the Apostle paid for preaching the Gospel message. In the Gospel, Jesus invites Thomas to put his finger in his hand and his side so Thomas may believe he is truly risen.

 


 

O Della Divina Misericordia

L’uomo vuole vedere per credere. C’è un “vedere” che limita la fede, perché vuol ridurre l’oggetto della fede alla logica della ragione, rifutando la novità insondabile del mistero. C’è un “vedere” che è condizione indispensabile per credere: perché scaturisce dall’obbedienza nella fede e dall’esperienza del perdono fatta nel sacramento della misericordia.

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

All through the Easter Season the first reading is always from the Acts of the Apostles.  We leave behind the Old Testament and experience “the signs and wonders” of the early Church enthused with the Holy Spirit of the Risen Lord.  The little band of believers becomes “great numbers of men and women” and “large numbers…are gathered” to listen to Peter and the Apostles.

While the first reading is always taken from the Acts of the Apostles, the second reading is always taken from the Book of Revelation.  Today John is proclaiming God’s word and giving testimony about the Risen Jesus, who he meets dressed in an ankle-length robe with a kingly gold sash around his chest.

Would you expect anything different for the Easter Gospels?  All the Gospels of Easter are taken from the Gospel of John.  Today are the two appearance of the Risen Jesus in the Upper Room, one without Thomas and the other with Thomas.  Of course, the doubting Thomas gets one of the best lines of the whole Gospel: “My Lord and my God.”

The Easter Season is one of intense joy and wondrous celebration of the Risen Lord among us, building us into the Body of Christ, the Church.  Our response should be energetic, renewed, and without doubt to the abiding presence of the Risen Lord.

-Fr. John Itzaina, SDB

Divine Mercy Sunday: In this, the Year of Mercy, today we celebrate the Sunday of the Divine Mercy, established by St. Pope John Paul II:“How much the world is in need of the mercy of God today! In every continent, from the depths of human suffering, a cry for mercy seems to rise. … In those places where there is less respect for life and human dignity, one needs the merciful love of God, in whose light we see the ineffable value of every single human being. Mercy is needed to ensure that every injustice may find its solution in the splendour of truth. So today, in this Sanctuary, I solemnly wish to entrust the world to Divine Mercy. I do so with the burning desire that the message of God’s merciful love, proclaimed here through Saint Faustina, may reach all the inhabitants of the earth and fill their hearts with hope. … May the binding promise of the Lord Jesus be fulfilled: from here has to come out “the spark that will prepare the world for his final coming.” –Blessed Pope John Paul II, Homily in Lagiewniki, Poland, August 17, 2002 .

Support Barbara Simons and Ramon Gabriel in raising funds for SSPP School! On Saturday, April 16, six intrepid couples will take to the dance floor in the back-by-popular-demand Dancing with the Stars Gala.  These dancers are parents, teachers, alumni, and members of the parish community, all of whom are training like mad to perform for over 300 guests at the Holiday Inn Gateway.

Each dance team is responsible for raising funds to support vital programs at Saints Peter & Paul School: programs that enrich the academic and co-curricular experience for our children.  We all know that a Saints Peter & Paul education encourages service, responsibility, integrity, and academic excellence: none of this is possible without the support of the community.

Representing Team Pre-K & SSPP Parish this year are our own beloved Barbara Simons, founder of the Pre-K, and Parish accountant Ramon San Gabriel -- soon-to-be-famous ballroom dancers extraordinaire!  Together they are working with Head of School (and sometime choreographer) Dr. Lisa Harris to master a surprise routine that will leave us all speechless!

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.
