Jeremiah 17:5-8; I Corinthians 15:12, 16-20; Luke 6:17, 20-26. In the first reading, trusting in the Lord brings a refreshing life of abundance. Saint Paul, in the second reading, says that Christ’s resurrection brings life to all who believe. In the Gospel, Jesus teaches the beatitudes.

Domenica 6A Del Tempo Ordinario

Molte persone ritegono che la felicità nasca dalla possibilità di disporre delle cose. Ne deriva un mondo sempre più violento, dove il desiderio e l’invidia pongono gli uomini in conflitto. Gesù ci propone una soluzione radicalmente opposta, che appare inevitabilmente folle ai nostri occhi. Quando accetteremo di riconoscere in questa proposta la radice della vera felicità?

Particular Items

Eucharistic Adoration/Scripture Study: Every Wednesday, we have Eucharistic Adoration from 7:00-8:00 PM in the Church. We also have Scripture study from 7:00 to 8:00 PM, but in the rectory. The parking lot will be open.

Vatican Meeting on Sexual Abuse: On Thursday, February 21, the Vatican’s meeting on the disgraceful plague of sexual abuse and impropriety besetting the Church will begin. The date is significant: it is the feast of St. Peter Damian, scourge of immorality among the clergy. In the 11th century he warned of the “cancer of sodomitic impurity” threatening the Church of God, and warned bishops: “Undoubtedly, those who turn a blind eye to the sins of their subjects that they are obligated to correct, also grant to their subjects a license to sin through their ill-considered silence.” Pray that our leaders take proper action and St. Peter Damian, pray for us!

Police Community Meeting: This Thursday, the good officers from Central Station will host the regular community meeting at 5:00 PM, in the Parish Center. This is your chance to share any concerns you may have and also to express your appreciation to the SFPD for all their difficult and dangerous work.

Archdiocesan Annual Appeal: Next weekend we will kick off our 2019 Archdiocesan Appeal. Our assessment is $89,853. There will be speakers at Masses who will tell you how that figure is determined, and the services your donations support.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA): The RCIA program has begun. This program is for adults who are interested in the Catholic faith and are willing to journey from inquiring to the receiving of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Please drop your name and email address off at the parish office.

Faith Sharing Group: The next Faith Sharing will meet Tuesday, February 26 at 6:30 – 8:00. The group will meet in the rectory and will be reading Fr. Andrew Apostoli’s book “The Gift of God” about the Holy Spirit!



Monthly Gatherings for Men Discerning a Priestly Vocation: Last week, in the Gospel, and TODAY in life, our Lord tells Peter and the others that they are to be Fishers of Men!  “Interested in knowing more about the priesthood as a vocation? Discernment involves listening to God, learning about yourself, and seeking the guidance of others. Discernment is not a solitary endeavor. There are two options: In Redwood City on the first Monday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at St. Pius X Church, 1100 Woodside Rd. Redwood City; In San Francisco on the first Thursday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at Church of the Epiphany, 826 Vienna Street, San Francisco. The program is Eucharistic Adoration in the church, followed by dinner and discussion in the rectory. For more information, Fr. Tom Martin at or Fr. Patrick Summerhays at  “We need men to give their lives up for Jesus Christ NOW!

Confirmations: We thanks Bishop Robert Christian for conferring the sacrament of Confirmation on 16 of our Saints Peter and Paul students on February 8. May they always be open to the gifts of the Holy Spirit!

Holy Hoopsters, Batman! It’s the Third Annual Clericus Classic Basketball Game! On Friday, March 22 at 6:30PM, at Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep gym, priests of the archdiocese and St. Patrick’s seminarians will lace up their sneakers, take to the hardwood, and dribble their way to glory (well, earthly glory anyway).
