St. Wolfgang of Regensburg (c. 924-994)
Wolfgang was born in Swabia, Germany, and was educated at a school located
at the abbey of Reichenau. There he encountered Henry, a young noble who
went on to become Archbishop of Trier. Meanwhile, Wolfgang remained in close
contact with the archbishop, teaching in his cathedral school and supporting
his efforts to reform the clergy. At the death of the archbishop, Wolfgang
chose to become a Benedictine monk and moved to an abbey in Einsiedeln, now
part of Switzerland. Ordained a priest, he was appointed director of the
monastery school there. Later he was sent to Hungary as a missionary, though
his zeal and good will yielded limited results.

I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so
that you will not become wise in your own estimation: a hardening has come
upon Israel in part, until the full number of the Gentiles comes in, and
thus all Israel will be saved. ~Romans 11:1-2a, 11-12, 25-29

Rather, when you are invited, go and take the lowest place so that when the
host comes to you he may say, 'My friend, move up to a higher position.'
Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table. For everyone
who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be
exalted." ~Luke 14:1, 11-14

It is part of human nature to want the best for ourselves.  Our Gospel today
tells us that we should seek the best for others, and to take the lowest
place for ourselves. This takes great humility.  May we seek the strength of
our Lord to do so, living as He lived.

I pray that I may not think so much of myself as of others.  I pray that I
may imitate Jesus and take the lowest place for myself.

Dorothy asks prayers for her sister who is having a difficult time in her
life. Member asks for special intentions for husband and grandson. A member
asks prayers for her son who is seeking employment.

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
