St. Adrian of Canterbury (d. 710)
Though St. Adrian turned down a papal request to become Archbishop of
Canterbury, England, Pope St. Vitalian accepted the rejection on the
condition that Adrian serve as the Holy Father?s assistant and adviser.
Adrian accepted, but ended up spending most of his life and doing most of
his work in Canterbury. Born in Africa, Adrian was serving as an abbot in
Italy when the new Archbishop of Canterbury appointed him abbot of the
monastery of Sts. Peter and Paul in Canterbury. Thanks to his leadership
skills, the facility became one of the most important centers of learning.
The school attracted many outstanding scholars from far and wide and
produced numerous future bishops and archbishops. Students reportedly

Beloved: We have this confidence in him that if we ask anything according
to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to
whatever we ask, we know that what we have asked him for is ours. ~1 John

John answered and said, ?No one can receive anything except what has been
given from heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said that I am not
the Christ, but that I was sent before him. The one who has the bride is
the bridegroom; the best man, who stands and listens for him, rejoices
greatly at the bridegroom?s voice. So this joy of mine has been made
complete. He must increase; I must decrease.? ~John 3:22-30

"He must increase; I must decrease." This can be a lifetime process, to
put aside our self-will as we allow God's will to take over in our lives.
Although it seems as though we're giving up everything, we actually gain
everything.  We can trust in the God who made us, provides for us and keep
us in existence.

I pray that I may put aside my sellf-will and allow God's will to take
over in my life.  I pray that He may increase and I may decrease.

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
