Thursday, August 25  -  St. Louis, St. Joseph Calasanz

St. Louis promoted knowing Jesus personally by

starting perpetual adoration. He put his earthly kingship

in the service of the King of Kings.


Friday,   August 26 - ICor 1:17-25, Ps 33:1-2, 4-5, 10-11

                                Matt. 25:1-13

We need faith to be able to embrace our daily crosses

as Jesus did.    We need faith to believe in the cross

of forgiving our enemies, the cross of sexual purity,

the cross of letting ourselves be persecuted, the cross

of a simple lifestyle, the cross of submission to

authority, and many other crosses. Repent, believe

and "fight hard for the faith" (Jude 3)


Saturday, August 27 -- St. Monica

St. Monica persisted in her mission to entrust

her son, St. Augustine, to God.


Sunday, August 28  -  Sirach 3:17-18, 20, 28-29  - 

             Heb 12:18-19, 22-24    -  Luke 14:1, 7-14

Jesus invites us to humble ourselves by taking the

lowest place. Jesus' call to humility and service

is of ultimate significance.  He speaks with a depth

and love far beyond anything we have ever heard.

Humble yourself  -- by Jesus' standards.















St. Michael the Archangel,
patron saint of police officers!

Society needs order. Order is maintained by the presence of authority.

Even in the face of flaws  whether real or perceived, 

authority is essential for society and for order. Without order,

there can be no peace because God is a God of order.


Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,

and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts,

by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan,

and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world

seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

                                                                                                                                              We are centered on the Eucharist and the love of our Mother. 

                                                                                                                                                             We are here to serve all in the name of the Lord.




The Holy Father, Pope Francis,  proclaimed an Extraordinary
Jubilee of Mercy  as a special time for the Church.


The Holy Door was opened  on December 8, 2015,  The

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. On that day,

the Holy Door became a Door of Mercy through which

anyone who enters will experience the love of God who consoles,

pardons, and instils hope. Similar doors were opened in each

Archdiocese, and will remained open for the duration of the Holy Year.

(for more details see our page on the Holy Year of Mercy)


    Mercy is "the bridge that connects God and humanity.

  But doors are narrow, and people must stoop with humility and

"be brought down to size by conversion"

  in order to be "fit" for eternal life.



The fruit of Silence is Prayer.

the fruit of Prayer is Faith.

The fruit of Faith is Love.

The fruit of Love is Service.

The fruit of Service is Peace.
