Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary Size:
This feast is a counterpart to the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus (January
3); both have the possibility of uniting people easily divided on other
matters. The feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary began in Spain in 1513 and
in 1671 was extended to all of Spain and the Kingdom of Naples. In 1683,
John Sobieski, king of Poland, brought an army to the outskirts of Vienna to
stop the advance of Muslim armies loyal to Mohammed IV in Constantinople.
After Sobieski entrusted himself to the Blessed Virgin Mary, he and his
soldiers thoroughly defeated the Muslims. Pope Innocent XI extended this
feast to the entire Church.  For more, follow the link below:

Beloved: This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners. ~1 Timothy 1:15-17

I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, listens to my words,
and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply
and laid the foundation on rock; when the flood came, the river burst
against that house
but could not shake it because it had been well built. ~Luke 6:42-49

How comforting to know that Christ came into the world, not because we were
doing so well, but to save us sinners.  As a response we can strive to build
our house on the foundation of rock ... and be grounded in the Lord.  Then
we cannot be shaken.  But when we falter, God is always there to forgive and
take us back to Himself.

I pray that I may appreciate the fact that Christ came into the world to
save me and sinners like me.  I pray that I may build my house solidly on

Sharon requests prayers for her daughter who is back out looking for a job
after being unfairly treated from her last job. Ruth asks prayers for
herself to be healed of Bell's Palsy. Anna requests prayers for her mother
who is ill in hospital that she recovers completely from surgery and will be
back home soon. Dorothy asks prayers for someone who has a serious
infection, that he have a speedy and full recovery. Mary Sue asks prayers
for a special intention. 

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
