Blessed Angeline of Marsciano (1374-1435) 
Blessed Angeline founded the first community of Franciscan women other than
Poor Clares to receive papal approval.
Angeline was born to the Duke of Marsciano (near Orvieto). She was 12 when
her mother died. Three years later the young woman made a vow of perpetual
chastity. That same year, however, she yielded to her father's decision that
she marry the Duke of Civitella. Her husband agreed to respect her previous
vow.  For more, follow the link below:

This was to fulfill what had been spoken through Isaiah the prophet: Behold,
my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom I delight; I shall place
my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles. He will
not contend or cry out, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets. A
bruised reed he will not break, a smoldering wick he will not quench, until
he brings justice to victory. And in his name the Gentiles will hope.
~Matthew 12:14-21

Jesus was the fulfillment of the prophets.  How comforting to know the He is
seen as the one who will proclaim justice, who will not break even a bruised
reed, nor quench a smoldering wick until He brings justice and victory.  I
can have confidence that this will come to pass.

I pray that I may always have confidence in God.  I pray that I may trust in
the Lord's power to gently proclaim justice and bring it about.

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
