  • MEET OUR EXTENDED FAMILY - THE SAINTS

    The saints are members of the Church who are with Christ in heaven praying for those in the Church who are still on their pilgrimage of faith. The saints in this year’s edition of 52 Sundays all share one thing in common: they are martyrs of the Church.  Saints help us see how our ordinary lives can be lived out in extraordinary ways.

    St. Francis de Sales
    (Feast Day January 24)

    August 21, 1567 – December 28, 1622

    After earning a doctorate in law, St. Francis wished to enter the priesthood. At age 35, he became the bishop of Geneva. St. Francis became known for his deep faith and his gentle approach to the religious divisions in his land resulting from the Protestant Reformation. Francis is well-known for his book, Introduction to the Devout Life, which is still available for purchase today. His writings, filled with his gentle spirit, are addressed to lay people. He wanted to make them understand that they too, are called to be saints.

    • St. Francis de Sales wrote a book to remind people that all are called to be holy, not just priests and religious. How can your family become more holy?

  • An Act of
    Spiritual Communion 

    My Jesus,
    I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
    I love You above all things,
    and I desire to receive You into my soul.
    Since I cannot at this moment
    receive You sacramentally,
    come at least spiritually into my heart.
    I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
    Never permit me to be separated from You.
    Amen.

    (Saint Alphonsus Liguori)

    FAMILY PRAYER

    Living Our Baptism Prayer
    Father in Heaven, when the Spirit came down upon Jesus at His Baptism in the Jordan, you revealed him as your own Beloved Son. Keep us, your children, born of water and the Spirit, faithful to our calling. May we, who share in your life as your children through baptism, follow in Christ's path of service to people. Let us become one in his sacrifice and hear his word with faith. May we live as your children, following the example of Jesus. Amen.

    [Invite each person to share any prayer intentions they may have.]
    We ask all these prayers through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
