Fifth Sunday of Easter


Home

 

Acts 6:1-7; 1 Peter 2:4-9; John 14: 1-12. The reading from Acts tells of the Apostles ordaining seven men as deacons to help ensure the needs of those in the early Church were being served as the Church continued to grow and develop. The second reading uses Hebrew Scripture to illustrate that Christ is the foundation of the Church, and his followers are living stones—a holy people. In the Gospel, Jesus says that he is the way and the truth and the life.

 


 

 

Domenica 5A Di Pasqua

Ai cristiani non vengono risparmiate aspre critiche e ciò li spinge a unirsi ancor più strettamente a Gesù Cristo. Soltanto con Lui sono in grado di edificare la nuova civiltà dell’amore, capace di compiere opera grande.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

For almost ten years, I have been writing a pastor’s message on the Sunday readings.  Without my realizing it, I have used an ancient method of Lectio Divina, which translated means Divine Reading.  It has five steps: Lectio (Reading for understanding); Meditatio (Personal application); Oratio (Praying); Contemplatio (Being in God’s presence); and Actio (Commitment to the Good News).  On any given Sunday, I’ve used the first two movements of Lectio Divina: Lectio and MeditatioLectio Divina can also be simplified into prayerful reading of God’s Word or by emphasizing one of the five movements.

And that’s what I will do this Sunday.  I will try to see how the first reading can help us to be committed to the Gospel message of care for the poor, the sick, and the elderly.  The early church had a problem with taking care of Greek-speaking widows, who weren’t getting their fair share of the “daily distribution.” Evidently the Hebrew-speaking widows were being given preference by the twelve Apostles.  Seven Greek-speaking disciples were chosen to remedy this unjust situation.

So, let’s talk about the American Health Care Act that was passed by the House of Representatives.  It has not been well received, for only 17% of a sample survey approve of it.  The reason is obvious: less poor people will be sufficiently covered, those with pre-existing health conditions will be effectively priced out of coverage.  In effect, the healthy young and the extremely rich, who in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) supported the poor and the sick, no longer will be burdened of the cost of “universal health care by mandate or taxation.  The Republican-controlled House of Representatives has dismissed the seven deacons appointed to take care of the Greek-speaking widows!

Charles M. Blow in an article in the New York Times, May 8, 2017, comments: “The A.C.A.[Obamacare] had made a basic societal deal: The young, healthy and rich would subsidize access to insurance for the older, sicker and poorer.  But this demanded that the former gave a damn about the latter, that people genuinely believed that saving lives was more important than saving money, that we weren’t living some Darwinian Hunger Games of health care where health and wealth march in lockstep…Once again, the party that is vehemently ‘pro-life’ for ‘persons’ in the womb demonstrates a staggering lack of empathy for those very same lives when they are in the world.  What is the moral logic here?  It is beyond me.”

Alcoholics Anonymous: The AA meets every Monday night at 7:00 PM, in the Parish Center. “The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking” –Third Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Eucharistic Adoration & Bible Study: Every Wednesday, we have Holy Hour from 7:00-8:00 PM. Bible Study follows in the rectory. Parking available."In the Eucharist, the Son of God comes to meet us and desires to become one with us; eucharistic adoration is simply the natural consequence of the eucharistic celebration, which is itself the Church's supreme act of adoration.” –Pope Benedict XVI; " ...listen and be silent in order to make spaces for the beauty of God."-Pope Francis. "Jesus wants to see you!"-Fr. Victor Warkulwiz of the Missionary Priests of the Blessed Sacrament.

Communion and Liberation: Our local chapter of Communion and Liberation, a worldwide order of lay Catholics, meets weekly on Thursdays, at 7PM, in the parish center. In 2007, Pope Emeritus Benedict said Communion and Liberation “…offers a profound way of life and actualizes the Christian faith, both in a total fidelity and communion with the Successor of Peter and with the Pastors who assure the governing of the Church, and through spontaneity and freedom that permit new and prophetic, apostolic and missionary achievements.” To learn more, visit www.english.clonline.org or email Franco Regguzoni at franksfo2003@gmail.com.

Archdiocese to be Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! On the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, March 25, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone officially began preparations to consecrate the archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The consecration will occur on October 7, which is the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary and the date of the annual archdiocesan Rosary Rally. October 2017 also marks the centennial of the appearances of the Blessed Virgin to the three children at Fatima, Portugal. “For this act of consecration to bear fruit,” wrote the archbishop in his letter to pastors, “I am convinced that we must prepare ourselves spiritually and with catechesis.” 

 


Choose Life! Even among terminally ill patients, a request to die is nearly always a cry for help. This request is a distress signal indicating that something in the patient's condition—at the medical, psychological, or social level—has not been adequately attended to.

Studies show that the desire for death in terminally ill individuals generally correlates with both physical pain and poor social support. When comfort or relief is offered in the form of more adequate treatment for depression, better pain management, or more comprehensive palliative care, the desire for death typically vanishes. In the Netherlands, for example, the request for ‘hastened death’ was withdrawn by 85% of patients when their symptoms were better controlled.

Suicidal individuals—with or without a terminal illness—typically do not want to die; they want to escape what they perceive to be an intolerable situation, and they inaccurately believe that suicide is their only way out. The patient requesting assisted suicide is often asking, ‘Does anyone want me to be alive, or care enough to talk me out of this request and support me through this difficult time?’” –Every Suicide is Tragic, USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities.

 


Volunteers for Mercy Night? Mercy Night is a great event that is being held at parishes around the world. A church is opened at nighttime and Catholics invite passersby to come in, enjoy some quite time, light a candle, maybe go to confession.

Come join us invite people to experience the peace of the Church! If you’d like to help, call Gibbons at the parish office. Check out Mercy Night in Seattle here: https://youtu.be/f0f6153qrho

 

 


Help the Poor: What about that old coat or blanket that's been sitting in your closet out of use?

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
