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.

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.
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

Public Mass Discontinued for now: By order of the city of San Francisco, we have discontinued public Masses at this time. On Monday through Saturday the Mass will stream at 9AM, and on Sunday it will stream at 10:00AM.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Fr. Patrick Summerhays at email@example.com “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 firstname.lastname@example.org
