Sts. John Jones and John Wall (c. 1530-1598; 1620-1679)
These two friars were martyred in England in the 16th and 17th centuries for
refusing to deny their faith. John Jones was Welsh. He was ordained a
diocesan priest and was twice imprisoned for administering the sacraments
before leaving England in 1590. He joined the Franciscans at the age of 60
and returned to England three years later while Queen Elizabeth I was at the
height of her power. John ministered to Catholics in the English countryside
until his imprisonment in 1596. He was condemned to be hanged, drawn and
quartered. John was executed on July 12, 1598.

Put away your misdeeds from before my eyes; cease doing evil; learn to do
good. Make justice your aim: redress the wronged, hear the orphan's plea,
defend the widow. ~Isaiah 1:10-17

"Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and
whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever
does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me. Whoever
finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will
find it. ~Matthew 10:34-11:1

Our lives are lived best if we keep God in first place. That means that we
have to take up our cross and walk in the footsteps of Jesus as well. When
we lose our life for His sake, we will find it.

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

I pray that I may keep God in first place in my life.  I pray that I may
lose my life in carrying my cross, and that I may find it.
