網上集體玫瑰經

Virtual Group Rosary

基於居家避疫令,自聖母月開始,每星期日,華人宗徒舉辦了網上集體玫瑰

經,參加人數有35 至50 人之間,來自不同堂區、州、甚至加拿大。

Due to the “Shelter-in-place” order, the Chinese Apostolates held virtual group Rosary on Sundays starting the Month of Mary. Number of participants ranged from 35 to 50 people, with friends from other parishes, states and even Canada.

雖然聖堂重開,讓信眾參與彌撒, 團體決定每星期日晚,繼續舉行網上集

體玫瑰經,為疫情早日結束祈禱,詳情請留意堂區通訊。

To continually pray for the ending of the pandemic, the community decided to keep the virtual group Rosary every Sunday evening after the Church reopens for parishioners to attend public Mass. Please stay tune on the parish bulletin for details.

 

 

Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-16, 23-24, 30-31-31; Psalm 33; Philippians 4:4-9; Matthew 18:1-6, 10. God will look after his sheep, since bad rulers have led the sheep astray. God will send a new David to lead them who is none other than the Good Shepherd, Jesus. The psalmist tells us: “Blessed are they who put their trust in the Lord.” Paul exhorts all those baptized in Christ to unity, joy, and peace. God’s peace surpasses all understanding and is beyond the power of the human mind. The Gospel tells us that to be a true disciple of Jesus one must be humble and not fear dependence on God the Father.

 

Festa di San Giovanni Bosco
 
O padre e maestro della gioventù, San Giovanni Bosco, che tanto lavorasti per la salvezza delle anime, sii nostra guida nel cercare il bene delle anime nostre e la salvezza del prossimo; aiutaci a vincere le passioni e il rispetto umano; insegnaci ad amare Gesù Sacramentato, Maria Ausiliatrice e il Papa; e implora da Dio per noi una buona morte, affinchè possiamo reggiumgerti in Paradiso. Così sia.

 

今天是聖鮑斯高瞻禮。聖鮑斯高是十九世紀的偉人,他生於1815年8月16日意大利一個小小的鄉村,兩歲時父親逝世由母親撫養長大。母親教他愛天主,愛聖母,愛世人。當時歐洲正逢工業革命,很多家庭受到失業的影響,無數孩子流浪街頭,無依無靠,年少的鮑斯高身受貧窮的苦楚,很同性他們,立志長大後要幫助貧苦的兒童。二十六歲時升了神父,從此把全部精神放在教育青少年之上。他創辦青年會,收容無依無靠,無家可歸的孩子,給他們棲身之所並教育他們。他的母親一直在身邊幫忙。他的教育方法是以愛和鼓勵而不是責罰,又以各種有益身心的活動幫助他們,使他們有正當的誤樂,不致做壞事,這就是有名的「防範教育」。

他創立了慈幼會,又和瑪沙利羅一起創立了母佑會女修會。許多和他志同道合的青年男女紛紛加入,今日世界各地都有慈幼會和母佑會的學校,尤其是工業學校,使青年們有一技之長,能自力謀生。他又開辦出版社,出版優良讀物。

聖鮑斯高神父一生熱愛青年,獻身為他們服務,他主張教育不單是教授學識,更重要的是教人靈魂得救,他的工作受到很多打擊,但藉着天主的幫助,總能化險為夷。他在一八八八年一月三十一日逝世,他的靈魂回到他深愛的天主和聖母身邊。他死後不久,教會便祝聖他為聖人。今年全世界各地都大事慶祝。我們應祈求聖鮑斯高為我們轉禱,使我們效法他的美德,愛主、愛聖母,愛世人。

From Fr. Gael: Today we celebrate the feast of St. John Bosco, or as he was known, Don Bosco. In mid-February, Salesian Provincials and elected delegates will attend the 28th General Chapter (GC28) of the Salesians of Don Bosco. They will gather in the city of Turin in Northern Italy where Don Bosco began his mission to serve youth. Turin, at that time, was in the midst of the Industrial Revolution. Many young men came to Turin from the countryside to seek employment. They were without family and without guidance. Thus began the Salesian Charism.

The meeting in Turin, GC28, has as its purpose to seek to understand how we Salesians are to serve the young people of our times. The world is as difficult now, if not more so, than it was then. The Church struggles to evangelize in an increasingly secular and materialistic world. However, the challenge remains the same. How can we help young people to discover their vocation in life, and one centered in the person of Jesus Christ?

The meeting will end at the end of the first week of April. I ask your prayers for the Salesian Family worldwide during this time that we may be faithful to the charism which the Holy Spirit inspired in Don Bosco. May Don Bosco live in us today. –Fr. Gael Sullivan SDB

Particular Items

St. John Bosco: Today, we celebrate the Feast of St. John Bosco, founder of the Salesians. Starting with almost nothing the great saint founded what is now the second-largest men’s order and co-founded the largest women’s order in the Catholic Church—present in almost every country in the globe. Not to mention 30,000 Salesian cooperators in at least 60 counties! St. John Bosco, on your feastday, pray for us!

Second Collection: Today we have a second collection for the Church in Latin America. Please be generous!

Catholic Schools Week! This week is Catholic Schools Week! The school will host a book fair through Wednesday in the parish center. Monday is Teacher Appreciation Day, Tuesday is Principal Appreciation Day, Wednesday is the Science Fair, plus an evening Open House,  Thursday is Don Bosco Fun Day, Friday is Salesian Appreciation and Grandparents’ Day, with a 9AM School Liturgy on the Feast of St. John Bosco! And the Scholastic Book Fair is all week in the Parish Center. We thank the wonderful principal, teachers and staff of Saints Peter and Paul school!

“If young people are educated properly, we have moral order; if not, vice and disorder prevail. Religion alone can initiate and achieve a true education.” –Don Bosco

Don Bosco Study Group: The study group will meet on  Tuesday, January 28, at 7PM, in the Club meeting room. The meeting will begin with a short presentation on a Salesian subject, and then will discuss Willa Cather’s Death Comes for the Archbishop. For more information email franklavin@comcast.net

Eucharistic Adoration/Scripture Study: Every Wednesday, we have Eucharistic Adoration from 7:00-8:00 PM in the Church. Scripture Study is at 6:30PM, but in the rectory.

Alcoholics Anonymous: The AA Meets every Thursday at 6:00 PM, in the parish center. “Don’t believe in miracles? A bunch of drunks got together and solved a problem!” Unofficial AA motto.

Saints Peter and Paul School Scholarship Fund: With San Francisco’s cost of living, lack of funds may prevent children from receiving a Catholic Education. The Salesians began by educating the children of the poor, and we are not about to exclude those who cannot make the total fee. But, like Don Bosco before us, we need help. Are there parishioners and/or friends who might consider contributing to the sponsorship of a student who might be otherwise forced to leave? All recipient family qualifications will be verified by Saints Peter and Paul School. For more information, feel free to call Fr. Gael at 421-0809 or Dr. Harris at 415-421-5219.

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.

Chinese New Year’s Mass: On February 1, there will be special Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral celebrating Chinese New Year’s. Bishop Emeritus Ignatius Wang, Bishop William Justice, and Bishop Daniel Walsh, and many priests, will celebrate. All are welcome to the New Year Eucharistic Celebration and Ancestors Veneration Ceremony. A banquet will follow (reservations required). Please pick up a flyer for more information.

 

Celebration for God’s Special People: On Saturday, February 8, at 11:00 AM, at St. Mary’s Cathedral Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone will celebrate Mass for special needs adults and children. Catholic adults and children with disabilities, and their families and friends, are invited to participate in a mass designed for them. Every parish has members with disabilities – this is a day for all to join in the celebration of Mass as a community supporting inclusivity of our special needs family.

Our Lady of Lourdes: February 11 is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes,. We will have a recitation of the Rosary after 7:00 am Holy Mass at the Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes. All parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend as we ask the intercession of our Blessed Mother!

Wedding Anniversaries Mass with Archbishop Cordileone! On Saturday, February 29, at10:00 AM, at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Archbishop Cordileone will celebrate Mass for husbands and wives who will celebrate 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 or more years in 2020. A reception will follow. To learn more or register go here: https://sfarch.org/wedding-anniversary-mass-misa-de-aniversario-de-bodas . Flyers are also on the tables.

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

Isaiah 49: 3, 5-6; 1 Corinthians 1:1-13; John 1:29-34. In the first reading, God reminds Isaiah that Israel is the Lord’s servant. Paul greets the Church of Corinth, announcing he has been called to be an Apostle. In the Gospel, John announces Jesus as the Lamb of God.
Domenica 2A Del Tempo Ordinario
 
Giovanni ci communica la vera fisionomia del Messia. Costruiamo attorno a noi un mondo di serenità e di pace perchè Gesù, mite agnello, non spenda invano la sua vita per tutti noi, consegnandoci un mondo rinnovato e pulito.

常年期第二主日

聖若翰洗者在傳教之前祇認識耶穌是自己的表弟 。但在約旦河替耶穌付洗時,看見聖神藉鴿子的形象從天降下,停在祂身上,才豁然明白,才真正地認清耶穌是天主聖子,是默西亞。這種認識使他大膽地為祂作證,清楚地向眾人說:「請看!天主的羔羊,除免世罪者!」這是兩句話是整部福音的主題:看、信、見證。

這也是今後世世代代的基督徒的目標和使命。天主給我們每人一個使命、一段時間去完成這使命。聖若翰看清了耶穌的真正身份,不惜以生命去作見證。而多年和師傅若翰在一起門徒,聽了師傅的見證,離開了他,跟隨耶穌去了。他們以後終其一生去傳揚祂的聖道,為祂作證,甚至為祂犧牲生命。時至今日兩千多年來,我們仍看到不少精烈的信徒,為主作出英的見證。

今天,我們也可以從福音中,從大自然中、從周圍環境和所接觸的人中看到這位除免世者。讓我們祈求天主給我們恩寵使我們看到、去接受以及去信和願意為祂作證吧!

From Fr. Gael: Last week we listened to the account of the Baptism of Jesus and reflected on the depth of the spiritual dimensions of our own baptism.  Today, the great prophet, John the Baptist affirms the mission of Jesus Christ publicly. There can be no doubt. This is the mission of his cousin Jesus. Our own baptism confirms our mission in and through Jesus Christ. However, it is not John the Baptist who confirms our mission. We our very selves have that task through the imitation of Jesus Christ. We proclaim Jesus Christ by the integrity of our Christian life and witness. We proclaim Jesus Christ without ever saying a word. Our lives are to be that loud proclamation. It means that there is no such thing as a private Christian. In the context of our American society, we know there to be separation of Church and State. However, in our commitment to Jesus Christ there can be no such dichotomy. We either are or are not followers of Jesus Christ. Our life in Jesus Christ must be the verification of that reality. If we were accused of being Christian, would our lives prove the accusation to be true? –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

一群教友,作了感恩節社會服務,於十一月二十 九日 ,在三藩市Canon Kip Senior Center, 為跨信仰冬季庇護中心準備晚餐。一行人當日午飯後,便聚集其中一位家中烹煮一切,於六時到中心為露宿者分餐,各人都感恩能参與此善舉,光榮及讚頌歸於天主。

A group of Chinese Apostolates did a Thanksgiving social service. On November 29, they served dinner at the Canon Kip Senior Center in San Francisco for the Interfaith Winter Shelter. After lunch that day, the group gathered at the home of one member to cook. By 6 pm, they delivered the food to the center and served the homeless. Everyone felt graceful for the opportunity of such good deed. Glory and praise be to God.

反墮胎遊行今年迎來第15周年,26日在三藩市市中心5萬人參與集會,呼籲人們尊重生命的權利,懂得自愛,反對墮胎。遊行現場的民眾來自灣區四處,包括天主教徒及普通民眾。今年亦是美國最高法院判墮胎合法化的第46周年。
集會發言者將墮胎作為威脅女性健康的問題進行闡述,并邀請7位孕婦上台,並將心跳監測器放在孕婦的肚子上,借住音響的放大人們聽到胎兒有力的心跳聲。多位反墮胎知名社區人士參與集會並發言。三藩市大主教Cordileone亦現身支持活動。

On December 15, 2017 we lost our beloved director, Fr. Mario Rosso, SDB. Words cannot express the depths of our loss and heartbrokenness.

The Funeral was on Wednesday, December 20. Parish Photographer Patrick Gee has a set of lovely photos here, and of the burial of our beloved Fr. Mario at the Salesian Cemetery in Richmond, here.

Fr. Mario, pray for us!
