Sts. Joachim and Ann  
In the Scriptures, Matthew and Luke furnish a legal family history of Jesus,
tracing ancestry to show that Jesus is the culmination of great promises.
Not only is his mother's family neglected, we also know nothing factual
about them except that they existed. Even the names Joachim and Ann come
from a legendary source written more than a century after Jesus died.   For

Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Reform your ways and your
deeds, so that I may remain with you in this place. Put not your trust in
the deceitful words: "This is the temple of the LORD! The temple of the
LORD! The temple of the LORD!" ~Jeremiah 7:1-11

The slaves of the householder came to him and said, 'Master, did you not sow
good seed in your field? Where have the weeds come from?' He answered, 'An
enemy has done this.' His slaves said to him, 'Do you want us to go and pull
them up?'
He replied, 'No, if you pull up the weeds you might uproot the wheat along
with them. ~Matthew 13:24-30

As we celebrate the Memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne, parents of the
Blessed Virgin Mary, we look at the importance of parents and grandparents.
They set a path and pattern for our lives.  Their tested faith becomes real
to us, and they pass on to us a treasure. Wheat and weeds grow up together,
and we need a course and direction to help us reform our lives when that's
necessary, and to follow the good path God sets forth for us.

I pray that I may pass on good things to the younger ones in my family.  I
pray that my faith may grow and that I might be a good example of living
faith to those around 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
