Sts. John Jones and John Wall (c. 1530-1598; 1620-1679) 
These two friars were martyred in England in the 16th and 17th centuries for
refusing to deny their faith. John Jones was Welsh. He was ordained a
diocesan priest and was twice imprisoned for administering the sacraments
before leaving England in 1590. He joined the Franciscans at the age of 60
and returned to England three years later while Queen Elizabeth I was at the
height of her power. John ministered to Catholics in the English countryside
until his imprisonment in 1596. He was condemned to be hanged, drawn and
quartered. John was executed on July 12, 1598.  For more, follow the link

The LORD took me from following the flock, and said to me, Go, prophesy to
my people Israel."  ~Amos 7:12-15

Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave
them authority over unclean spirits. He instructed them to take nothing for
the journey but a walking stick-no food, no sack, no money in their belts.
~Mark 6:7-13

We carry lots of "stuff" with us.  Sometimes we mean so well ... in
providing extras for ourselves and for our families.  Then we need to work
like crazy to pay for them, and don't have the time to enjoy them at all.
Sometimes we carry with us our desire to please others and be like them.  We
can then be held back from living our true faith ... because then we
wouldn't be like everybody else.  We can free us to hear and respond to
God's call.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may not allow my possessions to possess me.  I pray that I may
follow Jesus and not worry about what others might think.  I pray that my
life may be a good example to others.

.=: 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
