Blessed Ludovico of Casoria 1814-1885)
Born in Casoria (near Naples), Arcangelo Palmentieri was a cabinet-maker
before entering the Friars Minor in 1832, taking the name Ludovico. After
his ordination five years later, he taught chemistry, physics and
mathematics to younger members of his province for several years. In 1847 he
had a mystical experience which he later described as a cleansing. After
that he dedicated his life to the poor and the infirm, establishing a
dispensary for the poor, two schools for African children, an institute for
the children of nobility, as well as an institution for orphans, the deaf
and the speechless, and other institutes for the blind, elderly and for
travelers. In addition to an infirmary for friars of his province, he began
charitable institutes in Naples, Florence and Assisi. He once said,
"Christ's love has wounded my heart." This love prompted him to great acts
of charity.

For today's Scriptures, follow this link: http://www.usccb.org/nab/

I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice, I have grasped you
by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light
for the nations, To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from
and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness. ~Isaiah 42-:1-7

The large crowd of the Jews found out that he was there and came, not only
because of him, but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.
And the chief priests plotted to kill Lazarus too, because many of the Jews
were turning away and believing in Jesus because of him. ~John 12:1-11

The tides turn against Jesus. His promise is great, but there are so many
who are trying to hold onto their own positions and ways of life. In their
minds, Jesus is in the way.  We enter into this Holy Week ready to
experience all the emotions of the human heart.  May we walk with Jesus and
turn to him with all our heart.

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

I pray that I may seriously enter the mysteries of this most Holy Week.  I
pray that I may turn to the Lord with all my heart and anticipate the
rewards His sacrifice brings.
