Servant of God Sylvester of Assisi (d. 1240)

Sylvester was one of the first 12 followers of St. Francis of Assisi and
was the first priest in the Franciscan Order. A descendant of a noble
family, Sylvester once sold Francis stones which were to be used to
rebuild a church. When, a short while later, he saw Francis and Bernard of
Quintavalle distributing Bernard's wealth to the poor, Sylvester
complained that he had been poorly paid for the stones and asked for more
money. Though Francis obliged, the handful of money he gave Sylvester soon
filled him with guilt. He sold all of his goods, began a life of penance
and joined Francis and the others. Sylvester became a holy and prayerful
man, and a favorite of Francis?a companion on his journeys, the one
Francis went to for advice. It was Sylvester and Clare who answered
Francis' query with the response that he should serve God by going out to
preach rather than by devoting himself to prayer.

Moses said to God, ?But when I go to the Israelites  and say to them, ?The
God of your fathers has sent me to you,? if they ask me, ?What is his
name?? what am I to tell them?? God replied, ?I am who am.? Then he added,
?This is what you shall tell the Israelites: I AM sent me to you.? ~Exodus
3:1-8a, 13-15

He said to him in reply, ?Sir, leave it for this year also, and I shall
cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; it may bear fruit in the
future. If not you can cut it down.?? ~Luke 13:1-9

God has great patience with us. We can try to do things our own way and
end up with terrible problems. When we decide to repent and return we are
forgiven by God and given another chance. He continues to wait for our

I pray that I may trust in God's patience and mercy. I pray that I may
return to the Lord with all my heart.

We pray for people suffering from natural disaster, especially those in
Haiti and Chile. We pray for great respect for life from natural
conception to natural death.  We pray for an end of terrorism and
war, for the safety of our troops and their families at home.

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
