St. Giles (d. 710?) 
Despite the fact that much about St. Giles is shrouded in mystery, we can
say that he was one of the most popular saints in the Middle Ages. Likely,
he was born in the first half of the 7th century in southeastern France.
That is where he built a monastery that became a popular stopping-off point
for pilgrims making their way to Compostela in Spain and the Holy Land.  For

I came to you in weakness and fear and much trembling, and my message and my
proclamation were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a
demonstration of spirit and power, so that your faith might rest not on
human wisdom but on the power of God. ~1 Corinthians 2:1-5

And he said, "Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native
place. ~Luke 4:16-30

Jesus could do no good in His home town. People thought that nothing special
could come from their midst. Paul touched deeply the lives of the people he
visited. He had to rely on the power of God. We need not sell ourselves
short. We can look to the power of God at work in people who live near us,
even our own family members and friends. 

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

I pray that I may see the power of God at work in those around me, even my
own family members and friends.  I pray that I may allow the power of God to
go to work in me, that I can lead people to God through my own good example.

We pray for those in the path of Hurricane Gustav, for police and emergency
officials and for all who strive to do a good job of helping and sheltering
those who have been evacuated.

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
