Acts 10:25-26, 34-45, 44-48; 1 John 4:7-10; John 15:9-17. In the first reading, as Peter visits Cornelius and tells him whoever fears [God] and acts uprightly is acceptable to him, the Holy Spirit falls upon all who were listening. John writes, Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God. God’s love was revealed in his Son who he sent for our salvation. In the Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples to remain in his love and to love one another as he has loved them. For no one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for ones friends.

 

Domenica 6A Di Pasqua

La carità il distintivo del cristiano e I credenti devono essere portatori e dispensatori di amore. Ma quanto? La misura della carità cristiana non ha limita. Ce ne ha dato l’esempio Gesù che ha raggiunto il vertice della dedizione con il sacrificio sulla croce.

復活期第六主日

今天的福音是可以說是耶穌臨別贈言的一部份,從第十二章開始,都是耶穌臨別諄諄告誡的忠言。祂說:「這是我的誡命:你們該彼此相愛,如同我愛了你們一樣。」很清楚,很簡單,人人都聽得懂,人人都明白。耶穌不但讓我們聽得懂,也做給我們看。祂以天父對祂的愛去愛世人,也希望我們以這種愛去愛周圍的人,因為祂知道,唯有能這樣去愛,人才有真正的快樂。

耶穌的愛是溫柔的,在最後晚餐中祂預告門徒們災難發生時,他們會留下祂一人,但又預先安慰他們,說天父會和祂一起,使他們不致太自責,折磨自己。伯多祿三次背祂。但耶穌沒有責備他,祇轉身來溫和地望他一眼,這一望,使伯多祿學到了最珍貴的德行 ——  謙遜。

愛是為所愛者的好處着想;愛是坦誠,無私,分享,忠誠,寛恕,體貼、溫柔、服務,犧牲。這是耶穌對我們的愛,也是天父對我們的愛,讓我們好好學習。

聖母月開始了,我們每天抽時間念玫瑰好不好?

From Fr. Gael:  This week I would like to direct our attention to the Pastoral Letter of Archbishop Cordileone, “Before I Formed You in the Womb I knew You.” It is a “A Pastoral Letter on the Human Dignity of the Unborn, Holy Communion, and Catholics in Public Life.” It is a well written letter grounded in the tradition and faith of our Catholic Church.

In today’s world so often we hear the phrase “politically correct” which unfortunately is often not in consonance with the values of our faith. What the Archbishop presents would be deemed by some as not “politically correct.” However, it is “evangelically correct”: that is, it comes from the values of Jesus Christ in the Gospel. Some would seek to reconcile the two by a softening of the values of the Gospel, a watering down of the message of Jesus Christ. “I have come that you may have life, and have it in abundance.” The abundance comes from the first moment of conception. That is something that many sectors of society do not want to hear or acknowledge.

The letter of the Archbishop sets out the tradition of the Church from the earliest centuries. To ignore that tradition is to sell our inheritance for a mess of pottage. That is not in a worldly sense a “popular thing to say.” But it is to speak the gospel truth. The Gospel truth often has a way to make us uncomfortable but it is the way to Christlike authenticity. It is a call to the courage of Christ. I encourage all of us to read the pastoral letter and reflect upon it, and ponder what our response is. It is not a matter of politics. It is a matter of the Gospel. – Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Al Baccari: Last week, we lost an irreplaceable member of Saints Peter and Paul, and true San Francisco character, Al Baccari. He was 92. Alessandro Baccari was born in San Francisco and baptized and confirmed right here at Saints Peter and Paul. He was a life long parishioner and the leader and moving force of any number of parish events. Al was the primary author of the history of Saints Peter and Paul “The Italian Cathedral of the West” and he was a fascinating source of information for all things North Beach and beyond. He married his beloved wife Cathy, in 1951, and they had 61 beautiful years of married life, and two sons, Stephen & Gregory.

Al with Fr. Conterno at the Madonna del Lume Mass in the Fishermans’ Chapel.

Al was a man of so many facets and interests that they cannot even be hinted at. Art, science, history, music, you name it. He was such an interesting man because he himself was interested in so many things. But he was totally dedicated to his parish, his family, and to the Salesians. It’s hard to believe that he is gone, and we pray for the repose of his soul, and that his family and many friends and admirers are comforted. The Memorial Mass will be Friday, June 18, at 10:00AM.

LOVE: Today’s second reading, from the First Letter of John, and the Gospel, are about love. Here is a lovely video with lovely people sharing their experiences of LOVE:

Tho, he will be celebrating the 9:00AM Mass Tuesday through Monday of this week, while Fr. Gael is away. Come to Mass and meet him!

The Year of St. Joseph: “The divine messenger introduces Joseph to the mystery of Mary’s motherhood. While remaining a virgin, she who by law is his ‘spouse’ has become a mother through the power of the Holy Spirit. And when the Son in Mary’s womb comes into the world, he must receive the name Jesus. This was a name known among the Israelites and sometimes given to their sons. In this case, however, it is the Son who, in accordance with the divine promise, will bring to perfect fulfillment the meaning of the name Jesus-Yehos ua’ – which means ‘God saves.’

Joseph is visited by the messenger as ‘Mary’s spouse,’ as the one who in due time must give this name to the Son to be born of the Virgin of Nazareth who is married to him. It is to Joseph, then, that the messenger turns, entrusting to him the responsibilities of an earthly father with regard to Mary’s Son.

‘When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took Mary as his wife’ (cf. Mt 1:24). He took her in all the mystery of her motherhood. He took her together with the Son who had come into the world by the power of the Holy Spirit. In this way he showed a readiness of will like Mary’s with regard to what God asked of him through the angel.

Acts 9:26-31; 1 John 3:18-24; John 15:1-8. Barnabas helps Saul enter into the community of the disciples by reporting on Saul’s vision of the Lord and his bold proclamation in Jesus’ name. The First Letter of John instructs the community on love of neighbor, and on keeping the commandments as proof of belief in Christ. In the Gospel, Jesus says, I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower. Those who remain in him will bear fruit and their needs will be met.

 Domenica 5A Di Pasqua

 Portare frutto di opera buone è dono di Dio al quale ci sforziamo di essere uniti come il tralcio alle vite. Beati quelli che coltivano la comunione con Gesù e sanno vedere I frutti del grande albero della Chiesa. L’amore trsmesso da Cristo è affidato alla comunità credente come linfa che dona vita.

復活期第五主日

今天我們從宗徒大事錄中讀到聖保祿宗徒受了恩寵奇異的打擊,從兇殘的、反對基督的人,一變而為基督的精忠信徒。對一般來說,改邪歸正很少是一件突然發生的事,就像真福紐曼樞機一樣,往往需要漫長的觀察,不斷的考查、思索、閱讀、體驗,甚至掙扎,以及不斷的努力,才能改變自己的思想行為。在這段漫長的過程中,天主不斷施加恩寵給我們,就像今天耶穌所給的比喻一樣,祂是葡萄樹,我們是枝條,我們靠天主的聖寵的光照和滋養才能轉化。我們若與耶穌結合,才能結出天國的果實。

聖保祿宗徒雖得到特殊的恩寵而立時改變,但他仍是一生不斷謙遜地依靠天主,努力不懈,才能成為今日我們見到的教會中的偉大宗徒。我們一生也必需不斷的一次又一次地轉化,好能日進於德,成為天主忠實的信徒。願我們彼此勉勵,相互祈禱。

五月是聖母月,讓我們熱心恭敬聖母,求她保護、教導我們。朱神父在天之靈看到我們孝愛聖母,會很高興。

From Fr. Gael: In the past twenty years or so we began to see the word “synergy” being used quite a bit. It implies that creation of a more powerful energy being created by the combination of the energies of more than one person. In business circles it implies a greater force due to the collaboration of the energies of a group of people dedicated to the same goal.

Jesus had this concept done completely and we see it expressed in today’s gospel from the evangelist John. And the leader of this synergy in John’s gospel is the person of Jesus Christ: “I am the vine and you are the branches/” We are called to this synergy by Christ himself. Christ is the animating presence of the Love of God which calls us to a common goal.

If we understand this, then we understand that in the following of Jesus Christ, we are called to collaborate together in the Gospel. We are to work for the common goal of the Gospel. Therefore, as Christians, we cannot be “Lone Rangers” Even the Camaldolese Monks that live in separate huts in Big Sur do so as a community. They are called to a solitary vocation lived within the unity of the VINE. They are the separate branches and their lives of prayer are for the life of the Church as community.

What, then, does this mean to us who live in the midst of the world but who are often more disconnected with each other than the monks in the mountains of Big Sur. We are not meant to be “Lone Rangers.” We are meant to be brothers and sisters joined together in the synergy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Perhaps we could reflect on how connected ae we individually to the vine which nourishes the branches, and just how much energy do we each bring to the SYNERGY of Jesus Christ! –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

The Year of St. Joseph: Joseph the Worker: Yesterday we celebrated the Feast of Joseph the Worker. Beginning in the Book of Genesis, the dignity of human work has long been celebrated as a participation in the creative work of God. By work we fulfill the command found in Genesis to care for the earth (Gn 2:15) and to be productive in their labors. Saint Joseph, the carpenter and foster father of Jesus, is but one example of the holiness of human labor.

Jesus, too, was a carpenter. He learned the trade young and learned it right from Saint Joseph and spent his early adult years working side-by-side in Joseph’s carpentry shop before leaving to fulfill his Divine Mission. In his encyclical Laborem Exercens, Pope John Paul II stated: “the Church considers it her task always to call attention to the dignity and rights of those who work, to condemn situations in which that dignity and those rights are violated, and to help to guide [social] changes so as to ensure authentic progress by man and society.”

Saint Joseph is held up as a model of such work. Pius XII emphasized this when he said, “The spirit flows to you and to all men from the heart of the God-man, Savior of the world, but certainly, no worker was ever more completely and profoundly penetrated by it than the foster father of Jesus, who lived with Him in closest intimacy and community of family life and work.”

This silent saint, who was given the noble task of caring and watching over the Virgin Mary and Jesus, now cares for and watches over the Church and models for all the dignity of human work.

Acts 4:8-12; 1 John 3:1-2; John 10:11-18. In the first reading, Peter proclaims to the elders that the cripple who has been healed and saved was done so in the name of Jesus. This is the Jesus that they had crucified and whom God raised from the dead. The First Letter of John says that through the love of God we are now the children of God; what we shall become is not yet revealed. In the Gospel, Jesus says, I am the good shepherd…[who] lays down his life for the sheep.

 Domenica 4A Di Pasqua

 Gesù ci ama e vuole entrare in dialogo con noi. Siamo chiamati figli di Dio e lo siamo realmente, afferma San Giovanni. Nello splendore della Pasqua nasce un mondo nuovo. In questa società che massifica le persone ci commuove la chiamata di Gesù, che si rivolge a ciascuno di noi, individualmente, per farci scoprire la dignità di figli di Dio.

 復活節期第四主日

 在舊約時代,羊和牧人是遊牧民族日常生活中重要的部份,今天的福音,耶穌兩次以好牧人自喻,形容自己怎樣對待祂的羊群,祂不但犧牲一切去尋找失去的羊,祂甚至為羊群犧牲生命。祂說祂認識祂的羊,而祂的羊也認識祂,祂要尋找還不曾認識祂的羊。今天,牧人很少出現在我們的生活中,但我們可以從字義中看到耶穌所說的好牧人,就是一個用心靈去守護人類的天主聖耶穌子。

讀經一中, 我們看到天主聖神使一群有如驚弓之鳥的人變成勇敢、不畏強權的宣道者。聖伯多祿首先發言,承認耶穌是救主,指斥民眾領袖和長老們釘死了耶穌,接着又大膽地講述耶穌的言行,教人效法祂。

聖史若望告訴我們,天主愛我們,使我們「得稱為天主的兒女」。兒女的基因、樣貎都肖似父母,我們既然得稱為天主的兒女,就要勉力在言行上和天主相似。

From Fr. Gael: This Sunday, in the Gospel, we hear about the characteristics of the Good shepherd. Reducing the thought to its  essential characteristic, it focuses on an unconditional love capable of giving one’s own life for the sake of those confided to one’s care. My own image of the good shepherd is inextricably connected to my visits home to my family in the mountains of County Kerry in Southwestern Ireland. I usually stayed with my three unmarried cousins in the home of my Aunt Mollie. Every few years when I had a chance to pass through Ireland, I would stay a couple of weeks with them. They lived simply and in a way which has all but disappeared. They spent their lives caring for their flock of sheep, enduring all that implies. They were for me a real image of the Good Shepherd. I have a picture I took of Mickey holding a lamb in his arms. It is a tender picture of love which always invokes the image of the Good Shepherd. This is all to say that image is a testament to how Jesus cares for us unconditionally, ready to go out in search for us when we have left Jesus behind. He will never leave us behind no matter what it takes to go out to us. I am so blessed to have had a contemporary view of the Good Shepherd in the person of my cousins. May the image of the Good Shepherd described in today’s Gospel accompany us always no matter where we may wander, because we know that the love of the Good Shepherd is always with us. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

The Year of St. Joseph: Joseph, Patron of the Unborn: “Perhaps the most compelling reason to call St. Joseph Patron of the Unborn is his vital intervention in rescuing the Savior of mankind from Herod’s wrath. When an edict was established that every male child 2 years and younger be slain, it was St. Joseph who woke from sleep as soon as the angel warned: ‘Rise, take the Child and His mother, flee to Egypt and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him.’ (Mt 2:13) Humble Joseph trusted heaven more than his own judgment. He was obedient to God’s message and faithfully protected the two greatest treasures ever to walk on earth, Jesus and Mary.

 ‘Joseph of Nazareth, who saved Jesus from the cruelty of Herod, is shown to us in this moment as a great supporter of the cause of the defense of human life, from the first moment of conception to natural death. In this place, therefore, we wish to commend human life to Divine Providence and to St. Joseph, especially the life of children not yet born, in our homeland and throughout the world.’” – St. John Paul II Homily at the Shrine of St. Joseph Kalisz, Poland, June 4, 1997.
