Blessed Angela Salawa (1881-1922)
Angela served Christ and Christ?s little ones with all her strength.
Born in Siepraw, near Kraków, Poland, she was the 11th child of Bartlomiej
and Ewa Salawa. In 1897, she moved to Kraków where her older sister
Therese lived. Angela immediately began to gather together and instruct
young women domestic workers. During World War I, she helped prisoners of
war without regard for their nationality or religion. The writings of
Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross were a great comfort to her. Angela
gave great service in caring for soldiers wounded in World War I. After
1918 her health did not permit her to exercise her customary apostolate.
Addressing herself to Christ, she wrote in her diary, "I want you to be
adored as much as you were destroyed." In another place, she wrote, "Lord,
I live by your will. I shall die when you desire; save me because you
can."

For today's Scriptures, follow this link: http://www.usccb.org/nab/

Thus says the LORD: Return, O Israel, to the LORD, your God; you have
collapsed through your guilt. Take with you words, and return to the LORD;
Say to him, ?Forgive all iniquity, and receive what is good, that we may
render as offerings the bullocks from our stalls. ~Hosea 14:2-10

The scribe said to him, ?Well said, teacher. You are right in saying,
He is One and there is no other than he. And to love him with all your
heart, with all your understanding, with all your strength, and to love
your neighbor as yourself is worth more than all burnt offerings and
sacrifices.? ~Matthew 12:28-34

.=: M E D I T A T I O N    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

God calls us to return to Himself. The best way for us to do that is to
turn back to Him with all our heart ... and to love Him with all our
heart, wth all our understanding, with all our strength ... and to love
our neighbor as ourself!

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

I pray that I may turn back to God will all my heart.  I pray that I may
love Him above all, and my neighbor as myself.

.=: W E     P R A Y  :=.

We pray for people suffering from natural disaster, especially those in
Haiti and Chile. We pray for great respect for life from natural
conception to natural death.  We pray for an end of terrorism and
war, for the safety of our troops and their families at home.

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

Father Pat

      "Be still and know that I am God."  ~Psalm 46:10
