St. Anthony Zaccaria (1502-1539)
At the same time that Martin Luther was attacking abuses in the Church, a
reformation within the Church was already being attempted. Among the early
movers of the Counter-Reformation was Anthony Zaccaria. His mother became a
widow at 18 and devoted herself to the spiritual education of her son. He
received a medical doctorate at 22 and, while working among the poor of his
native Cremona in Italy, was attracted to the religious apostolate. He
renounced his rights to any future inheritance, worked as a catechist and
was ordained a priest at the age of 26. Called to Milan in a few years, he
laid the foundations of three religious congregations, one for men and one
for women, plus an association of married couples. Their aim was the reform
of the decadent society of their day, beginning with the clergy, religious
and lay people. Greatly inspired by St. Paul (his congregation is named the
Barnabites, after the companion of that saint), Anthony preached with great
vigor in church and street, conducted popular missions and was not ashamed
of doing public penance.

The Lord is gracious and merciful. ~Psalm 145

She said to herself, "If only I can touch his cloak, I shall be cured."
Jesus turned around and saw her, and said,  "Courage, daughter!  Your faith
has saved you." And from that hour the woman was cured. ~Matthew 9:18-26

Jesus always wills to heal us.  We can draw close to Him in faith and have
confidence that He will be with us to comfort us, to give us strength and to
bring us healing!

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

I pray that I may draw near to the Lord who always wants to draw near to me.
I pray that I may have confidence that healing will come my way.

Matthew asks prayers for a special intention. Gerald asks prayers for a
special intention. Kate asks prayer for her sister who is having a baby. A
Grandma asks for healing of her two year-old grandaughter who has
developmental delays.

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
