St. Apollinaris (1st century) 
According to tradition, St. Peter sent Apollinaris to Ravenna, Italy, as its
first bishop. His preaching of the Good News was so successful that the
pagans there beat him and drove him from the city. He returned, however, and
was exiled a second time. After preaching in the area surrounding Ravenna,
he entered the city again. After being cruelly tortured, he was put on a
ship heading to Greece. Pagans there caused him to be expelled to Italy,
where he went to Ravenna for a fourth time. He died from wounds received
during a savage beating at Classis, a suburb of Ravenna. A beautiful
basilica honoring him was built there in the sixth century.  For more,

Then the LORD said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to me? Tell the
children of Israel to go forward. And you, lift up your staff and, with hand
outstretched over the sea, split the sea in two, that the children of Israel
may pass through it on dry land. ~Exodus 14:5-18

At the judgment the queen of the south will arise with this generation and
condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom
of Solomon; and there is something greater than Solomon here." ~Matthew

Moses cares for his people and shows that he has power that comes directly
from God as he parts the sea. We can look to the many marvels found in
scripture and be strengthened in our faith.  We can trust that God sends us
good leaders.

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

I pray that I may trust in God's care for me and those around me.  I pray
that I can trust in the leaders God has sent me.

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

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
