Isaiah 56:1, 6-7; Romans 11:13-15, 29-32; Matthew 15:21-28. The Lord speaks through Isaiah, giving his promise that all who hold to [his] covenant will be brought to his holy mountain. In the second reading, Saint Paul tells the Gentiles that God delivered all to disobedience, that he might have mercy upon all. In the Gospel, a Canaanite woman asks Christ to have pity on her, for her daughter is tormented by a demon. In spite of initial rejection, the woman perseveres in faith and Jesus heals her daughter.

 

Domenico 20A Del Tempo Ordinario

 Chi si rivolge al Signore con umiltà , e ascoltato. Il mistero della chiamata universale alla salvezza impegna il credente a celebrarla con il culto, a proclamara davanti agli uomini e a darne testimonianza con la propria vita.

 

常年期第二十主日

今天的讀經在在表明天主的救恩是賜給所有人的,讀經一《依撒意亞先知書》中說:「我的殿宇是為使普世萬民都能得救。讀經二「天主把眾人都圈入背逆之中,為憐憫眾」。天主不單拯救善人,也拯救罪人,這是很明顯的。

福音中,耶穌對客納罕婦人的態度,有點奇怪,好像有點冷淡,因為祂奉命救天主的選民 ——以色列。祂打發宗徒出外傳教時,曾命令門不要走外邦人的路。客納罕婦人是外邦人。耶穌要試探她的信心,表面對她冷淡,又說拿兒女的餅餵子狗是不對的,真是侮辱十足了。婦人答得好:「小狗也吃主人桌子上掉下的碎屑。」耶穌完全被婦人的信心和謙遜征服了,不但成全了她的願望,還表揚他的信德。

許多時,我們向天主求的態度,好像老板對伙計,有時討價還價,有時更限時專送。其實祈禱最主要的應該是誠心、恆心、謙心、讚美、感恩。客納罕婦人是我們最好的榜樣。

 

From Fr. Gael: The woman is a pagan, a Tyro-Phoenician. Her request to Jesus for a cure is a matter of the heart, that is, the heart of a mother. She makes the request for the cure of her daughter who is  possessed by a demon. Jesus, at first hand, rejects the request because his mission is to the house of Israel and not to pagans. But the heart of the mother is ferociously insistent and her response to Jesus’ apparently strong rejection of her request, likens the request to throwing food to dogs. It seems a bit strong and demeaning of this woman who only seeks the well-being of her daughter.  She, however, responds poignantly: “Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters.” Jesus cannot resists the response from the depth of her faith: “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.” What do we learn from this? It seems clear to me. Our faith must be ferociously strong and persistent, and Jesus will respond to us as he did to the Tyro-Phoenician woman. Keep at it! –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

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

1 Kings 19:9a, 11-13a; Romans 9:1-5; Matthew 14:22-33. Elijah heard God in a tiny whispering sound. Paul writes to the Romans that he has great sorrow and constant anguish in [his] heart for his own people. In the Gospel, Peter becomes frightened while walking on the water toward Jesus. Jesus catches him from sinking.

 

 Domenico 19A Del Tempo Ordinario

Ogni discepolo, di cui San Pietro è il prototipo nel vangelo di questa domenica, conosce momenti di incertezza e di dubbio. Quando comincia a vacillare grida: “Signore, salvami.” Gesù gli tenderà la mano per salvarlo. La fragilità della nostra fede non ci trattenga dal partecipare alla Liturgia della festa, per proclamare, con tutta la Comunità: “Tu sei veramente il Figlio di Dio! Signore vieni in aiuto alla mia fragile fede.”

 

常年期第十九主日

讀經一記述厄里亞先知因受了許多迫害,感到力不從心,十分沮喪,便登曷勒布山,想得到安慰,他聽到聲音叫他出來立在天主面前。但天主不在暴風大作,裂山碎石之中,也不在地震烈火中出現。等到一切平靜了,有輕微細弱的風聲,厄里亞聽到了天主的聲音。他蒙着臉站在洞口。天主體恤他的辛勞,以溫柔慈愛安慰他。

福音記述伯多祿看見水面走着的耶穌,請祂也讓他走在水面上到祂身邊。可是在風浪汹湧中,他害怕了,大聲叫喊,求主救助。厄里亞疲乏沮喪,遇困難時灰心失望;伯多祿在危險中膽怯畏懼,都是人之常情。我們在危險中,要記得依靠天主,呼求聖母幫助,堅信天主常在我們之內,就不至沉淪,因為天主會以最溫柔的愛鼓勵、指導保護我。

星期二八月十五日,是聖母升天節,是當守瞻禮日,記得參與彌撒,聖母是我們天上的母親,她有全備之德,我們要向她學習,求她助佑,告訴她你愛她,把你的一切獻給她。

 

From Fr. Gael: God whispers and he does not shout. That is what the prophet Elijah in the Book of Kings learns. And if we listen to that particular piece of scripture it is what we learn that in today’s first reading. God comes into our lives in whispers. When someone whispers to you must move closer to that person to capture their words and understand what they quietly want to tell you. When God whispers we have to move closer to God to capture his message to us. It means sifting through all other distracting noise to filter out what is essential in the whisper.

In today’s Gospel, which follows the dramatic moment of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes, Jesus goes off to pray by himself so he can filter out other distractions. Even Jesus needed space to think and pray. Then he proceeds with the demands of daily life, the storm on the sea of Galilee. He ,fortified by pray and closeness to the Father, can tell his disciples. “Take courage, do not be afraid, it is I.” And to the doubt of Peter he can answer, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”. Jesus says the same to us. All what we have to do is draw lose enough to her the whisper in the midst of the storm!  –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Isaiah 55:1-3; Romans 8:35, 37-39; Matthew 14:13-21. The Lord speaks through Isaiah, exhorting his people to come to the water and be renewed by the everlasting covenant. Paul  tells the Romans that nothing can separate them from the love of Christ. In the Gospel, after hearing of the death of John the Baptist, Jesus heals the sick and feeds the 5,000 abundantly.

 

Domenico 18A Del tempo Ordinario

Il peccato impedisce che l’amore di Cristo raggiunga il suo scopo. Sullo sfondo della tragedia di Giovanni Battista, davanti a una folla sfinita e disorientate, Gesù chiede agli Apostoli di fare la loro piccolo parte e compie un miracolo. Fidiamoci della Provvidenza che agisce anche attraverso di noi: ciò che riceviamo diving dono!

 

常年期第十八主日

今天彌撒的讀經一是依撒意亞先知所寫的的一段:「凡口渴的,到水泉來吧!那沒有錢的,也請來吧!請來買不花錢、不索值的酒和奶吃。」在舊約時代,往往用充足的酒、油、奶來表示財富。先知告訴我們天主慈愛地照顧我們。而今天的福音更進一步表現出天主的慈愛,祂派遣聖子來安慰、幫助、救贖我們。

耶穌聽到若翰去世的消息,悄悄地坐船離開來到一處偏僻的荒野去祈禱。羣眾知道了,一直徒步找祂。耶穌自己雖然因為若翰的死亡很傷心,但祂不顧自己,治好他們帶來的病人,並且教導他們,更顯聖跡,以五餅二魚餵飽他們。餅和魚固然是當時群眾的需要食糧,但也是日後耶穌要給的永生之糧的預象。我們今天從耶穌得到的不單是餅和魚,而是祂的身體和寶血。這奧跡比五餅二魚更偉大,這精神的食糧是千百年來用之不完取之不盡的,但耶穌要我們要像當年的群眾一樣,懷着熱情和信賴去跟隨耶穌,尋找耶穌。

本來,耶穌要顯任何奇跡都不需要我們幫助,但祂願意我們和祂合作。人雖然能力有限,但祇要我們願意為自己的兄弟付出,那怕是最微薄的力量,天主也會把它變成偉大的德能。

聖德蘭修女就是很好的例子。

 

From Fr. Gael: The multiplication of the loaves and the fishes is a miracle which answers the immediate needs of the crowd which has followed him to listen to him preach. He satisfies their physical hunger. When they see and experience this, they then look upon Jesus as an apt candidate to be their king. He is tagged with Messianic expectations. Jesus flees from this kind of adulation which is self-serving on the part of the crowd. It is not the basis for a true relationship. Isaiah in the first reading tries to clarify that kind of thinking. He explains to the people of Israel in exile that the basis of the relationship with God is the covenant in which God says: “I will be your God and you will be my people.” The basis is not personal gain but rather committed relationship between God and his people. And so it is only natural that Jesus, Son of God, would run away from anything less. The reflection that is incumbent upon us, then, is what is the basis of my personal relationship with God?  –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

1 Kings 3:5, 7-12; Romans 8:28-30; Matthew 13:44-52 or 13:44-46. God tells Solomon to ask for anything, and he asks for an understanding heart to lead his people.. Saint Paul writes to the Romans that, all things work for good to those who love God. In the Gospel, Jesus uses three parables (buried treasure, pearl of great price, and a full fish net) to explain the kingdom of heaven.

 

Domenica 17A Del Tempo Ordinario

I discepoli di Gesù hanno come regola di vita l’amore che è dono e tesoro inestimabile. Per conquistarlo occorre affrontare qualiasi difficoltà con discernimento e generosità, affinché Dio occupy sempre il primo posto nella vita.

 

 

常年期第十七主日

今天耶穌繼續講天國的比喻,教訓人應有怎樣的智慧,去進入天國。祂把天國比作「藏在地裏的珍寶」,人發現了,為擁有它,變賣一切去得到它。又像一個尋找寶珠的商人,找到真正的珠寶,也變賣一切,買了它。這兩個比喻,說明得到恩寵有時是無意之間,一個訊息,使他突然明白了,皈依天主。也有人千辛萬苦去鑽研,終於明白了天主的聖道,於是諴心地相信,以得到聖道為至寶。其實天主的恩寵離我們很近,但我們卻沒有發現它,即使發現了,也不看重它,以為比起金錢、名譽、地位和享受,它不算是什麼而放棄它,又有些人以為有的是時間,等享受夠了,才去領取,而沒有想到生命無常,迅息即逝,機會不再。十分可惜。

人世間有許多知識、物質、財富,就像漁人撒網一樣,網一拉上,千種百樣的東西都出現,但有智慧的人,祇選能持久,適合永生之用的 ,其餘的通通不取。因為沒有什麼比永生更重要。

 

From Fr. Gael: Imagine you are a contestant on some sort of quiz show, and you have won. You are told you can chose your own prize from among a multitude of valuable things. What would you choose? This is the situation of Solomon in today’s first reading. What you choose would be a good indication of what you most value in life, of what your set of values are. Of all the physical material external things that Solomon could have chosen, he chooses an internal attribute. He chooses wisdom so that he may rule as king with rectitude over his people. And so he is granted wisdom and so much more by God. The very fact that he chooses wisdom is an indication that it already reigned in his heart, but was magnified ever more by God’s blessing. What reigns in my heart? What reigns in all our hearts? The choice belonged to Solomon to make and the blessing he received was a confirmation of that good heart? May our hearts hold what will cause God to bless even more abundantly as He did Solomon! –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

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

 Wisdom 12:13, 16-19; Romans 8:26-27; Matthew 13: 24-43 or 13 13:24-30. Wisdom speaks of the might and clemency of God, saying you would permit repentance for their sins. Paul tells the Romans that the Spirit intercedes when we know not how to pray. In the Gospel, Jesus shares three parables about the kingdom of heaven, explaining the of the parable of the weeds to his disciples.

 

Domenica 16A del Tempo Ordinario

 Alla vista di ciò che accade nel mondo è impossibile nonn porsi delle domande. Come può Dio sopportare tanti disodini, tante intollerabili ingiustizie, tanti delitti scandalosamente impunity? Perché interviene così poco? Non si tratta di chiedere conto a Dio, ma di cercare di capire la sua condotta, che deve ispirare la nostra. Dio è l’Onnipotente, che non ha bisogno di imporsi con la forza: concede a tutti il tempo per cambiare la loro condotta, per convertirsi. Il tempo della resa dei conti è già programmato.

 

常年期第十六主日

今天耶穌仍用撒種的比喻,第一段寫莠子的存在,是指邪惡、敗行,人如果不留心就會犯罪  。但令人欣慰的是天主仁慈的,「是公義的本源;因為祢主宰一切,所以祢必能諒解一切…祢雖掌有大權,但施審判,卻很溫和。」世人往往以權力壓制公義,但天主不是這樣,祂有權力,同時也是公義和慈悲的。天主永遠給人最後的機會。因此,忍耐地等待,延遲懲罰,給人懺悔的機會。

天國還在發展的時期,善人和惡人之間,沒有絕對明顯的分別,天主容許兩種人混合在一起生活,一方面為考驗善人,使他們更能堅持到底,多立善功;另一方面給惡人有悔攺的機會,因為善人會變壞,壞人會變好,我們中國人有一句話「蓋棺論定」。意思是要等到人呼出最後一口氣,才可判斷。因為人一天未死,一天仍有機會悔攺。天主不立刻收人靈魂,祂希望人回心轉意。善人應該為罪人祈禱,並以善言善行幫助他的弟兄們。

 

From Fr. Gael: God loves us and wants us to love Him. But God won’t make us love Him. Forced love is not love at all. And so the good and the bad live in this world side by side. Matthew wants us to understand that we choose to which side we belong. God gives us time to reach out in freedom and experience God’s gracious kindness and healing touch. Ultimately, for Matthew, God is good and merciful, giving us the time we need to repent and turn back. In our weakness, God is our strength and our help. In the parable the slaves want to pull out the growing weeds with the growing wheat. The Master instead says, “Let them grow together, there will be time later to separate them.” God gives us time, and time again. It is never too late for the Love of God. The confidence of the landowner that his wheat will survive the effect of the weeds is worth pondering. A trust in goodness that is greater than the fear of wickedness could be a powerful weapon against rampant, senseless violence. It has worked before in history, and could work again if given a chance. Let’s give LOVE a chance. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Isaiah 55:10-11; Romans 8:18-23; Matthew 13:1-23 or 13:1-9. Isaiah describes the word of God as fruitful, not returning to the Lord until his will is accomplished. Paul writes to the Romans, addressing human suffering and looking beyond it to the promise of heaven. In the Gospel, Jesus tells the parable of the sower and explains its meaning.

 Domenica 15A Del Tempo Ordinario

 Parola di Dio non è solo l’insegnamento che Gesù ci dà, ma anche le azioni da lui compiute. Che i destinatari l’accolgano o la rifiutino essa illumine e orienta I fatti della storia. L’umanità riceve da Cristo il dono dello Spirito Santo, che la guida a cogliere nella sofferenza e nella croce il seme di vita eterna.

 常年期第十五主日

「就如雨和雪,不再返回原處,祇有灌溉田地,使之繁殖萌芽」。(讀經一)耶穌回應依撒撒意亞先知的話,講出了當地人們熟悉的撒種種植的比喻。這比喻耶穌自己已經解釋得很清楚,祂所撒的種子是天主的聖言,也就是天主的恩寵,土地是每人的心田。恩寵的施與,不分種族,不分貧富貴賤,人人有份,任由人自由取之無盡,用之不竭,問題是你想不想要。天主絕不勉強,因為勉強接受不能持久,一遇到多少阻力便心灰意冷,急急放棄。但天主永遠給人機會,因為[木祂知道,人若有心,石地也能變成良田;荊棘叢生也能拔除淨盡,天主從不放棄,祂耐心等待人悔攺,盼望瘠地變良田,結實纍纍。

耶穌警告我們,有些人心麻木了,他們祇想過暫時的、因循苟且的生活,他們塞住耳朵,閉上眼睛,免得聽了心裏明白,而需要改變生活。這是發人深思的話,願我們警醒、細聽,消化、謹記、實行耶穌的教訓。

 

From Fr. Gael: Matthew is addressing a key concern of his Christian-Jewish community; namely, why some Jews accepted Jesus and other Jews rejected him and his message of the Kingdom. The parable is an attempt to explore this mystery concerning acceptance or rejection of Jesus’ message and centers on our willingness to open ourselves to how God is present and acting in the world. It means developing ears that listen attentively and a mind that discerns thoughtfully. With God’s help, this kind of soil will produce abundant fruit. Life and all its consequent demands tend to drown out the capability to hear and respond to it. The grace, the seed, is given but must be received by each of us, interiorized and acted upon. This parable does not center on what God does, but rather on the receptivity that we assume. Ultimately, responding to the word is what bears fruit and yields the said hundred or sixty fold harvest. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Zechariah 9:9-10; Romans 8:9, 11-13; Matthew 11:25-30. Zechariah tells Jerusalem to rejoice, for their king shall come to them “…riding…on a colt, proclaiming a message of peace to the nations. Saint Paul instructs the Romans that whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. In the Gospel, Jesus gives praise to the Father for what he has revealed to the little ones.

Domenica 14A Del Tempo Ordinario

Il profeta Zaccaria (IV sec a.C.) invita a gioire. San Paolo, definisce carne ciò che spinge verso scelte che allontanano da Dio, e spirito ciò che conduce al Signore. A chi è”piccolo,” il Padre rivela i misteri di Dio: la condizione nuova per incontrare il Signore è l’umiltà.

 

常年期第十四主日

耶穌說:「除了父外,沒有人認識子;除了子和所願意啟示的,沒有人認識父。」這番話清楚地表明耶穌的天主性。而祇有貧苦的、弱小的懷着赤子之心的人才能認識祂,心高氣傲,自命不凡的人不肯承認祂。今天許多人認為天堂、永生都是是荒謬的,他們心中沒有天主,因此他們的生活是空虛的,沒有任何東西可以填滿的。

耶穌用這段話一方面要引導人作天國的子民,另一方面,祂降生為人,與人同行,祂當然了解我們,想到那貧苦的、或有病的、傷心的、對未來失去信心,覺得迷惘空虛不知所措的,被生活、被環境壓得透不過氣的、因罪惡而受良心責備,他們的身心都找不到安息。祂希望幫助我們,祂說:「你們所有疲憊和背負重擔的人,到我這裏來吧,我將使你們安息。」讓我們走向祂,求祂教我們認識真理,懂得體驗生活真正的意思,這樣我們就得到安息了。

 

From Fr. Gael: Today’s scripture wishes to impart to us an important piece of wisdom. The prophet Zechariah speaks of a humble King dependent upon God who will arrive riding upon an ass, not with fanfare but with simplicity, recognizing from where his true strength comes. He will not be a king in the worldly sense, but instead, will be the King who rules over hearts. In the Gospel, Jesus say s that true wisdom comes from God to those who are children before God, rather than to the learned and the wise in the worldly sense. What does this mean? Children recognize their dependence on other. That other in the biblical sense is God. Only those who recognize their dependence on God are truly wise. That means God is in first place, and all else in second place. That is the wisdom that today’s scripture wishes to give to us. Open your hearts and your hands to receive this from OTHER, from God. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Rosary Rally and Walk Sunday: This Sunday, July 5, there will be a Rosary Rally and Walk beginning at 2:30PM at St. Mary’s Cathedral. Participants will process to City Hall while praying the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and end with theSolemn Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. One of the organizers wrote “By now, you may have seen that San Francisco’s City Attorney has issued a cease-and-desist letter to the Archdiocese that is essentially aimed at squashing public Masses. This is completely outrageous and discriminatory. I invite anyone here to take the Geary 38 MUNI bus to observe that upwards of 30 people are riding the bus at a given time. There is no social distancing on that bus whatsoever, and it is as plain as day that the bus is far less sanitary than any parish. This is unjust and we must fight it, especially with our spiritual weapons.” For those who cannot walk, feel free to drive down to City Hall and meet us there. Please wear your mask and observe social distancing.

Please Remember! The Church is still relying on your gifts to keep afloat financially. Go here to give: http://parish.sspeterpaulsf.org/donate/

Confessions: Please make an appointment for confession by calling the parish office.

Alcoholics Anonymous: The AA Meetings on Thursday meeting at 6:00 PM, in the parish center, should begin soon. We will let you know! “Don’t believe in miracles? A bunch of drunks got together and solved a problem!” Unofficial AA motto.

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.

 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

Acts 12:1-11; 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 17-18; Matthew 16:13-19. The first reading recounts Peter’s miraculous liberation from prison. In the second reading, Paul, reflecting on his life of ministry, comments that he has fought the good fight. All the while he credits the Lord with rescuing him from every harm. In the Gospel, Jesus gives Peter the high honor of declaring him the Rock upon whom He will build His Church.

San Pietro e Paolo

 Pietro, pescatore di Galilea, è chiamato da Gesù a diventare pescatore di uomini; Paolo, il fariseo osservante della legge, diviene per elezione Apostolo della genti. Sulla loro testimonianza trova fondamento la nostra fede. Dalla loro fedeltà nasce lo stimolo a dire “sì” al Signore, che ci chiama donandoci la fede.

 

聖伯多祿聖保祿節

聖伯多祿和聖保祿二人的個性完全不同,伯多祿是首先明認耶穌是天主的人,他說:「祢是基督,永生天主之子。」他也是耶穌把他的名字西滿改為多祿(磐石),說在這磐石上,建立祂的教會」。他是個漁夫,由耶穌親自召叫加入門徒行列,曾和耶穌朝夕相處了三年之久,熟悉耶穌。可是他也很軟弱,三次背主。

保祿原本是個法利塞經師,熟悉猶太教規,知識豐富,摘善固執,他完全不認識耶穌,曾經以為耶穌和跟隨祂的人都是叛徒,必需趕盡殺絕。可是往大馬士革的路上被天上的光環擊跌下馬,同時有聲音向他「我是你迫害的耶穌。」他因而心靈的眼目大開,認清了真主的美和善。從此赴湯蹈火,受盡艱辛,宣揚基督的神國。

兩位門徒雖然性格不同,但都以一生的精力去宣揚聖教,二人最後都為基督的教會捐軀。伯多祿悔改後變得堅強,不遺餘力地傳揚福音。而保祿本來是個剛烈的人,為了維護自以為真道時不惜殺人,但認清了真主耶穌以後,雖然不改摘善固執的本性,但對人變得溫和謙遜,在《迦拉達書》第六章中,他勸說弟兄要彼此擔待,以柔和的心神去矯正他人。

讓我們祈求二聖的幫助,效法他們的芳表,心中常常想到基督的言行,不單一生明認耶穌是天主、保守信德,也像他們一樣努力去傳揚聖教。在我們生命的最後時刻,能像聖保祿一樣說出:「這場好仗我打完了,信德也保守了…」。

From Fr. Gael: In the plaza in front of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome there are two big statues. One is of St. Peter and the other is of St. Paul. St. Peter holds the keys to the kingdom, symbol of his role as the head of the Church. St. Paul holds a sword in his right hand and a book in his left hand. Both statues present to us these apostolic giants of Christianity. Both influenced the founding of the Church after the Ascension of Jesus into heaven. Both in Rome ultimately gave their lives for Christ in witness to fidelity to Jesus. Each are majestic in their countenance and the example of their evangelization and fidelity to Christ.

The figure of the apostle Paul has a noble bearing, with a long sword in his right hand; his left holds a book. On the book is an inscription, in Hebrew letters of the fourteenth-fifteenth century style, reading: “I can do all things in him who strengthens me”, recalling the text from Paul’s Letter to the Philippians, chapter 4, verse 13.

In celebrating the feast of these two Christian giants, perhaps we could reflect on that quote from Paul’s letter and ask ourselves whether we truly believe that we, today in our world, can do all things in Christ who strengthens us. The world needs Christian giants today to continue proclaiming the message of Christ. Maybe we can be those giants. May these two patron saints of our parish inspire us to be just that! –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Jeremiah 20:10-13; Romans 5:12-15; Matthew 10: 26-33. Jeremiah, the prophet, praises the Lord in the midst of terror and persecution, trusting God’s power to save. In his Letter to the Romans, Paul teaches that death came through Adam’s sin, but Jesus brings the grace of God as a gift. In the Gospel, Jesus encourages the Twelve to not be afraid.

Domenica 12A del Tempo Ordinario

Geremia è perseguitato ma sa che non sarà abbandonato dal Signore. Gesù invita a non avere paura nella persecuzione, a riconoscerlo davanti agli uomini per non essere rinnegati da lui. La fede non si piega di fronte alla minacce quando è sostenuta dalla forza Spirito Santo.

 

常年期第十二主日

 今天的福音的第一句是教宗聖若望保祿二世常常教導我們的話:「不要怕!」全部聖經一共有三百六十五句「不要怕!」足夠我們每天用一句。

為什麼不要怕?因為「與我們同在的上主,好像是一位孔武有力的戰士。」(讀經一)耶穌也告訴我們,天主珍愛我們,連我們的頭髮也清楚知道。依靠天主,我們穩如泰山。祇有天主才是我們應該敬畏的,得罪天主,喪失了基督徒的身份才是可怕的事。失去這身份等於失去了生命意義和價值。保全了這身份也就保存了生命——永生。為此,作為基督徒應該為這身份作證,就像兩千多年來,無數的基督徒一樣,為了堅守這身份,即使招致肉身的受苦、甚至死亡,也在所不惜。

今天,在美國,我們還不至為這身份犧牲生命,但若我們能不與世俗隨波逐流,活出基督的精神來,也就是為我們這身份作證。

 

From Fr. Gael:  Jeremiah, the great prophet, speaks of the difficulties he has encountered in following his vocation as prophet. He was called by God to speak God’s word, and he did so for over half a century, enduring the consequences of that faithfulness to his vocation. However, he ends today’s first reading, despite all the difficult moments, praising God: “Sing to the Lord, praise the Lord, for he has rescued the life of the poor from the power of the wicked!” God is in, above and between all things, and God has accompanied the faithfulness of the prophet.

Jesus, then, in the Gospel tells his disciples to “fear no one.” God accompanies his faithful servants and friends, so we are not to be afraid.

This is consolation to us in the tribulations and difficulties of our own lives. When we walk with God, God is behind us, before us, to our right, to our left, above us and below us. Do we get the idea? God surrounds us. Why should we fear. We are valued in God’s eyes. And so, in the third to last line of today’s Gospel, Jesus summarizes it well. “So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Deuteronomy 8:2-3, 14b-16a; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; John 6:51-58. In Deuteronomy, Moses reminds the people of how God brought them out of Egypt and through 40 years in the desert. Saint Paul writes of our unity as Christians, for we all partake of the one loaf. Jesus tells the Jewish crowds that he is the living bread that came down from heaven so that eternal life may be found though Him.

 

Corpo e Sangue Di Cristo

Durante la vita, anche noi abbiamo bisogno dal cielo, dà la vita, crea un rapporto di communione tra tutti I credenti, mentre assicura la risurrezione finale. Anche per il mondo l’Eucaristia è segno e strumento di salvezza eterna.

 

基督聖體聖血節

教會每年都隆重地慶祝基督聖體聖血節,目的是提醒我們,天主不是個不與人沒有關係,毫不關心,不理會人的天主,單祇要求人去崇拜的神。相反的,祂降生成人,與人同行,深刻了解人類的喜怒哀樂,同情人的困境和需要的神。祂不單供給我們肉體的需要,更把自己的身體和寶血作我們的精神食糧,養育我們的靈魂。在彌撒中繼續把我們奉獻給天父,又供給我們的靈魂作食糧。我們必需朝拜、感謝、熱愛聖體,勤領聖體,否則就辜負耶穌一番心意了。

讀經二給我們展開另一個境界,聖體也使弟兄們彼此團結。「因為餅祇有一個,   我們雖多,祇是一個身體,因為我們眾人共享一個餅。」而聖體祇有一個,就是基督的身體,我們領了聖體,與基督共融,有着基督的血和肉,大家都是祂的肢體。 為此,我們要團結一致。

今天又是父親節,孝敬父親不祇是在父親節的一天,而是時時刻刻想到父親的功勞和愛,尊敬他,孝愛他,為他祈禱,讓我們求聖家之長聖若瑟保護,指引所有父親。

 

From Fr. Gael: Moses in his farewell speech in Deuteronomy reminds the Israelites of how they were fed manna in the desert. It became their daily bread. It was their sustenance. It guaranteed them survival. Paul in his words to the Corinthians reminds them, “The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ?” Jesus in the Gospel of John declares to his listeners, “This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

All the readings are centered on the “Body and Blood of Jesus Christ” which today’s liturgy celebrates. It is the wisdom of the Church which prompts us to remember this reality. Familiarity breeds contempt, the saying goes. As regards the Eucharist, however, we might change the saying a bit, “familiarity breeds indifference.” What a tragedy! That we should be indifferent to the depth of the gift of the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Jesus is astounding.. He died out of sheer love for us. How can we become too accustomed to that great reality? May the love of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ be ever in our hearts! –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

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
