Isaiah 5:1-7; Philippians 4:6-9; Matthew 21:33-43. Isaiah tells of a friend’s vineyard, a friend who does everything possible to tend his vineyard, only to find that it produces wild grapes. Paul encourages the Philippians to be not anxious, but pray with thanksgiving and to think about what is true, just, and lovely. Jesus tells a parable in the Gospel about vineyard tenants who kill the servants who come to claim the produce.

Domenico 27A Del Tempo Ordinario

Gli auti che Dio ha messo in atto per il suo popolo si alungano nei secoli e si distendono in una scala molto vasta, ma anche la delusione ha la sua parte e I castighi una funzione. Consola le certezza che la preghiera nel nome di Gesù sarà ascoltata. Che non avvenga che meritiamo la punizione inflitta ai vignaioli per la loro infedeltà

 

常年期第二十七主日

今天的福音和依撒意亞先知書所述說的一樣,都是有關葡萄園的比喻。天主把以色列人比作葡萄園,愛護有加,施肥去石,撒下最好的種子,但以色列卻不口知自愛,使它雜草叢生,結出野果,令祂大失所望。瑪竇福音中,重述依撒意亞的比喻,說明天主愛護祂的子民,屢次派先知來提醒他們改邪歸正,可是佃戶們忘恩負義,虐待了先知們,天主表示出最大的愛,派遣了自己的聖子,可是他們牯惡不悛,竟殺死了祂。最後天主不再用比喻了,祂說:「天國將由你們手中奪去,交給結果子的異邦人手中。」然而異邦人的新子民,是不是比以前的子民更忠誠呢?他會不會重蹈以色列人的命運呢?這個比喻不僅指教會或社會,也比喻我們每一個人,我們是受了洗的教徒,我們也是天主的葡萄園,我們都蒙主厚愛,我們是否能結出美果?我們會不會令天主失望?

讀經二聖保祿致斐理伯人書中指出了思念誠實、正義、純潔、喜樂、信賴天主;賜平安的天主必與我們同在。

From Fr. Gael: The Song of the Vineyard in Isaiah’s First Reading and the Parable are essentially the same. They speak of the unfaithfulness of Israel to God. However, in Matthew’s Gospel the problem lies with the leadership of Israel, namely the chief priests and the Pharisees. They know this. Their reaction is one of anger and a desire to eliminate Jesus which is exactly what happened to the son in the Gospel parable. The mutual relationship between the owner and the tenants has been destroyed and, thus, the relationship will be transferred to others. This parable gives us cause to ponder our own relationship with the owner of the vineyard. Is it one of mutual love and respect, or it is one of personal gain as in the parable? Do we render to God that which is due to him in our relationship. If not, then we also could lose what has been given to us. –Fr. Gael Sullivan SDB

Religious Education-CCD:  The 2020-2021 Religious Education-CCD program will begin on October 4, 2020. We are welcoming and accepting students from Pre-K to Grade 8.  During this unusual period of the pandemic, all our classes will be held online via Zoom. The goal of the program is to help children to grow in faith and working together with parents we hope to help the children come to experience God in their own lives and to familiarize them with the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church. Our program is focused on Public school students who do not have an opportunity to have religious education in their school.  Classes are held every Sunday from 9:45am to 11:00am.  Kindly fill out the 2020-2021 Registration Google form here.

Religious Education – RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults):  We welcome adults who would like to enter the Catholic faith, or those who have not received the Sacraments of Confirmation and or Eucharist.  During this unusual period of the pandemic, all our classes will be held online via Zoom. Classes will be held every Thursday from 7-8pm. Kindly fill out the RCIA Participant General Information form  here and forward to ete@sspeterpaulsf.org

Daily Rosary: When the lockdown ends, we  hope to begin the daily praying of the Rosary following the 7:00AM Mass. Come join us in front of Our Lady’s altar!

Saints Peter and Paul Salesian School Accepting Applications: Our K-8 Salesian school is accepting applications for this year and next. Call the school at 415-421-5219 for more information, and visit sspeterpaulsf.org/ to learn more about the school.

Monthly Gatherings for Men Discerning a Priestly Vocation: These are discontinued for now, but the email address are valid for those men who are interested: Our Lord told 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 mailto:martin.thomas@sfarch.orgor Fr. Patrick Summerhays at summerhays.patrick@sfarch.org  “We need men to give their lives up for Jesus Christ NOW!

Speaking of Vocations: Could God be Calling Me? YES! God calls each of us to life, to wholeness, and to service. The task of the young adult is to discern what path God wants him or her to follow. The Lord calls most people to marriage and family. For the Christian young adult this is a very important decision. Choosing to marry is not just a romantic response, but also a very specific process that includes prayer, investigation, involvement, and experience.

God calls some people to religious life as a Sister, Brother, or Priest. A religious vocation follows the same process. We call this the discernment process. Want to learn more about the Salesian Vocation? Email Fr. John Roche, SDB at jrochesdb@gmail.com

Ezekiel 18:25-28; Philippians 2:1-11 or 2:1-5; Matthew 21: 28-32. In our first reading, the Lord speaks to Israel through the prophet Ezekiel and tells them that the wicked who turn from sin shall live. In today’s Epistle, Paul exhorts the Philippians to live in unity, taking Jesus as their example of humility. In the Gospel, Jesus tells the parable of the two sons whose father aske them to work in the vineyard; the first son refuses, but later obeys.

 Domenico 26A Del Tempo Ordinario

 Impegnarsi nel contesto della vita sociale senza tenerconto del comportamento altrui è rispondere a unachimata che rinnova l’intimo del cuore. La ricerca del bene degli altri è la via migliore per conseguire il proprio. Gesù, per amore si è fatto uomo, umiliandosi fino alla morte.

 

常年期第二十六主日

許多時,世界各地發生了天災人禍時,有人會問:「天主在那裏?為什麼祂准許這種悲刻發生?」這問題真值得仔細思量。其實天主和我們一樣,為這些天災人禍感到極度悲痛。但我們要知道,這些年來,人心大變,世人祇要物質、「自由」、要為所欲為,要舒適,不要結婚、不要家庭、不要孩子。想做男人或女人都應該由自己決定,以為現在是自由的世代,天主的誡命可有可無;是我們把天主從政府、學校、家庭、生活、道德中趕走。是我們不需要天主,天主並沒有捨棄我們,也沒有降災來懲罰我們,是我們妄作胡為,咎由自取,擾亂了人性,擾亂了社會和大自然的秩序,是我們自甘墮落,以致達到了今天的地步。天主仍是在舊約時代一樣,向我們提出警告和勸說:「若惡人遠離他所行的惡事而遵行法律和正義………他必不至滅亡。」(讀經一)。

聖保祿宗徒苦口婆心地要我們效法基督的謙遜:「祂雖具有天主的形體……卻使自己空虛……取了人的形體,貶抑自己……死於十字架上。」(讀經二)目的也無非是勸我們謙虛地服從天的誡命。

今天的福音中,耶穌也向我們提出一個問題:「誰是真正履行父親意願的兒子?」我們也不妨問問自己:我怎樣履行天主的意願?天主在我心中佔着怎樣的地位?」

上主求祢教我認識祢的法度,教訓我履行祢的道路……引我進入真理之途」(詠25:4-5)

From Fr. Gael: This parable is tricky. Upon first sight, we would tend to think that the first son is the better of the two. He said no but changed his mind and did as the Father requested. The second son said yes, but in reality did not go. Within the context of the culture of Christ’s time, many would say that the second son was the better of the two because he did not cause his father to lose face before others. But the point that Matthew is making is that the first son was able to change. He reconsidered and did what was right. The capacity to reflect and change is paramount in spiritual growth. It shows a capacity for critical thinking that ensures growth. Even though the first human reaction was not good and proper, reflection enabled him do what was good and proper. Today’s gospel is an invitation to us to embrace the behavior of the first son. Even though at times we may at first fail, reflection and redirection enable us to grow in the sight of God. By the way, that’s what the sacrament of reconciliation is all about. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Isaiah 55:6-9; Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a; Matthew 20: 1-16a. Isaiah encourages his people to seek the Lord and ask for his mercy—God whose thoughts are far above their own. Saint Paul tells the Philippians that Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. And though Paul longs to be with Jesus in the next life, it is better that he remains with them. In the Gospel, jesus tells a parable about workers in a vineyard, emphasizing the generosity of the landowner to all who labored.

Domenico 25A Del tempo Ordinario

Gli uomini sono operai della vigna del Signore, consapevoli o no di concorrere a realizzare il progetto di Dio. La parabola degli operai, invitati a lavorare in ore diverse, insegna che ogni uomo, ogni popolo e ogni civiltà ha il proprio tempo di chiamata. Sono imoportanti la prontezza e la qualità dell’umana risposta.

 

常年期第二十五主日

今天彌撒各段讀經都環繞在「我的思想不是你們的思想,你們的行徑不是我的行徑」。的主題上。我們不能把自己的思想和行徑以為就應該是天主的行徑和思想,不能說,如果發生的事不是像我所想所行,就是不合理的。

今天的福音在世人的眼光看來是奇怪的,怎麼一天的工作一小時的工作所得工資竟是同等的?固然,天主是公義的,但同時也是仁慈的,祂給人同等機會得獲救恩,無論任何時候,祇要願意接受祂,誠心痛悔都可以成為祂的義子。但祂也沒有虧待那一生愛主敬主的人。當然這比喻不是要我們懶惰不去追尋真理,或隨意生活,等到最後一刻才接受天主。因為天主隨時會來,死亡隨時會到。我們「趁上主可找到的時候尋找祂,趁祂在近處的時候呼求祂,離開自己罪惡的行徑,抛棄自己的邪念歸附祂」(依55:6-9)

聖保祿的一番話是一個真正基督信徒應有的態度,人不管生死、不管處於怎樣的環境,都應以基督的光榮為中心,而不去計較賞報多少的事,因為救恩完全是個賜予,不是靠人的能力而得,以言以行去光榮天主是感恩的表示。

 

From Fr. Gael: God does not wear a wrist watch. God operates in the movement of his own pace which transcends time. So the first reading from Isaiah tells us. God is infinite and not tied to time. But God is found in time, our time, as God chooses to reveal himself. It corresponds to us to seek the revelation of God in our time. Today’s parable from Matthew gives us a clue. The owner of the vineyard seeks workers from the first hour of morning labor to close to the end of the day. In his generosity he gives the same reward to all. Those who came in at the crack of dawn complain that such treatment is unjust. God replies, “Do not envy my generosity! I choose to give as I please.” God is not constrained to human concepts. His generosity is his own to give, and just so, he will act. And we will all benefit from the abundance of God’s generosity. So just as with time, God transcend it, so in his generosity he transcends our understanding. We don’t need to figure it out. We only need to enjoy it.  –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Particular Items

Mara Amato: A number of our wonderful parishioners have gone home to the Lord recently, and another joined them last week, well known to so many, Mara Amato. Frank Lavin, lifelong parishioner, remembered Mara in a note to the Salesian Cooperators:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Mara Amato, longtime parishioner, Salesian Cooperator, and one of the fabrics of our community. She was 82, and married to Cosmo Amato (another stalwart of our parish and longtime Cooperator) for close to or over 60 years.

Mrs. Amato was involved in every aspect of parish life for the past sixty years, most especially, the Holy Name Society, YLI, ICF, Mother’s Club, volunteer at school, club and church, long-time Bazaar volunteer. The list truly is endless. I fondly remember her serving me so many meals in the cafeteria at grade school, always smiling, welcoming, so so very loving.

She was a proud mother and most especially, grandmother. She was organized, thoughtful, had a good sense of humor and was just about the kindest woman you would ever want to know.

Mrs. Amato remembered the Cooperators, as she retired from leading the Italian Catholic Federation a couple of years back. She passed on to us a very coveted storage closet in the parish center. She knew that it would be in good hands and wished us well.

Mrs. Amato, say hi to Don Bosco and our Blessed Lady who you loved so much! Now, you are with your dear parents. May you rest in peace. Amen.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Cosmo and the entire Amato family.

Alcoholics Anonymous: As soon as the AA is allowed to meet again, we will let you know! “Don’t believe in miracles? A bunch of drunks got together and solved a problem!” Unofficial AA motto.

Daily Rosary: When the lockdown ends, we  hope to begin the daily praying of the Rosary following the 7:00AM Mass. Come join us in front of Our Lady’s altar!

Monthly Gatherings for Men Discerning a Priestly Vocation: These are discontinued for now, but the email address are valid for those men who are interested: Our Lord told 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 martin.thomas@sfarch.org or Fr. Patrick Summerhays at summerhays.patrick@sfarch.org  “We need men to give their lives up for Jesus Christ NOW!

 Speaking of Vocations: Could God be Calling Me? YES! God calls each of us to life, to wholeness, and to service. The task of the young adult is to discern what path God wants him or her to follow. The Lord calls most people to marriage and family. For the Christian young adult this is a very important decision. Choosing to marry is not just a romantic response, but also a very specific process that includes prayer, investigation, involvement, and experience.

God calls some people to religious life as a Sister, Brother, or Priest. A religious vocation follows the same process. We call this the discernment process. Want to learn more about the Salesian Vocation? Email Fr. John Roche, SDB at jrochesdb@gmail.com
