Servant of God Orlando Catanii  
An unexpected encounter with St. Francis of Assisi in 1213 was to forever
change-and enrich-the life of Count Orlando of Chiusi. On the day a festival
was being organized for a huge throng, St. Francis, already well known for
his sanctity, delivered a dramatic address on the dangers of worldly
pleasures. One of the guests, Orlando (also known as Roland) was so taken by
Francis' words that he sought out the saint for advice on how best to lead a
life pleasing to God.  For more, follow the link below:

We are treated as deceivers and yet are truthful; as unrecognized and yet
acknowledged; as dying and behold we live;
as chastised and yet not put to death; as sorrowful yet always rejoicing; as
poor yet enriching many; as having nothing and yet possessing all things. ~2
Corinthians 6:1-10

Jesus said to his disciples: "You have heard that it was said, An eye for an
eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, offer no resistance to one
who is evil. ~Matthew 5:38-42

In order to be good disciples we are called to live extraordinary lives.
That's how Christianity spread, on the example of those falsely accused, but
pure and true ... and those who would forgive even when forgiveness wouldn't
make common sense.  Their sense came from the God who loved them ... and
ours from the God who continues to love us.

I pray that I may listen to and follow God's call.  I pray that I may summon
the faith and courage to live and extraordinary life, and that others may
grow in their faith through my example.

Vilma asks prayers for a special intention. Jim, a member requests prayers
for himself and his daughter he needs guidance in dealing with her and she
needs a job.

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
