Servant of God John of Monte Corvino (1247-1328)
At a time when the Church was heavily embroiled in nationalistic rivalries
within Europe, it was also reaching across Asia to spread the gospel of
Jesus Christ to the Mongols. John of Monte Corvino went to China about the
same time Marco Polo was returning. John was a soldier, judge and doctor
before he became a friar. Prior to going to Tabriz, Persia (present-day
Iran), in 1278, he was well known for his preaching and teaching. In 1291 he
left Tabriz as a legate of Pope Nicholas IV to the court of Kublai Khan. An
Italian merchant, a Dominican friar and John traveled to western India where
the Dominican died. When John and the Italian merchant arrived in China in
1294, Kublai Khan had recently died.

I will raise up for David a just shoot; he shall do what is right and just
in the land. In those days Judah shall be safe 
and Jerusalem shall dwell secure; this is what they shall call her: "The
LORD our justice." ~Jeremiah 33:14-16

But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads
because your redemption is at hand. ~Luke 21:25-28, 34-36

As we begin the Holy Season of Advent this weekend, we prepare for the
coming of Jesus at Christmas, and His coming at the end of time. We know
that Jesus comes to us as the Prince of Peace, and that there can be no
peace unless there is first justice.  So we work for justice in the world
around us and in our personal relationships as well. We get ready and stay
ready as we pray, "Lord Jesus, come!"

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

I pray that I may work for peace by helping bring about justice.  I pray
that, when the Lord comes, I may stand erect and raise my head, because my
redemption will be at hand.

.=: 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
