St. Francis Borgia (1510-1572) 
Today's saint grew up in an important family in 16th-century Spain, serving
in the imperial court and quickly advancing in his career. But a series of
events-including the death of his beloved wife-made Francis Borgia rethink
his priorities. He gave up public life, gave away his possessions and joined
the new and little-known Society of Jesus.  For more, follow the link below:

Realize that it is those who have faith who are children of Abraham.
~Galatians 3:7-14

But if it is by the finger of God that I drive out demons, then the Kingdom
of God has come upon you. ~Luke 11:15-26

Sometimes, in our spiritual quest, we try to make things easy.  We can put
some faith in fortune-telling, horoscopes and more. We can easily open
ourselves to the power of evil.  It is important for us to know that God is
the MOST POWERFUL. And if it is by the finger of God that evil is driven
out, then the Kingdom of God has come upon us. 

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may not look for cheap and easy answers.  I pray that I may
always remember that God is the most powerful, and that I can rely on Him

Lee asks for prayers for a friend who had a heart attack. Jean asks prayers
for a friend and her children whose husband and father committed suicide. A

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
