Sts. Marian and James (d. 259)
Often, it's hard to find much detail from the lives of saints of the early
Church. What we know about the third-century martyrs we honor today is
likewise minimal. But we do know that they lived and died for the faith.
Almost 2,000 years later, that is enough reason to honor them. Born in North
Africa, Marian was a lector or reader; James was a deacon. For their
devotion to the faith they suffered during the persecution of Valerian.

It is my judgment, therefore, that we ought to stop troubling the Gentiles
who turn to God, but tell them by letter to avoid pollution from idols,
unlawful marriage, the meat of strangled animals, and blood. ~Acts 15:7-21

Jesus said to his disciples: "As the Father loves me, so I also love you.
Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love,
just as I have kept my Father's commandments 
and remain in his love. ~John 15:9-11

The circumcision controversy ends today when it is seen that there are more
important things for new believers to concern themselves with. In our Gospel
we hear that the most important thing is to remain in the Father's love. We
are reminded to keep His commandments and remain in His love.

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

I pray that I may focus on what is most important. I pray that I may keep
God's commandments and remain in His love.

Maria asks for prayers for strength and justice for our Pope and all people
who have false acquisitions brought against them. JP requests prayers of
healing, if it be God's will, for 3 friends in various stages of cancer
treatment. Luvina asks prayers for relief for her grandson's financial
burden following life saving surgery for a brain tumor that had to be
performed out of state.

Jim asks prayers for several intentions. Brenda asks for prayers for a dear
friend who is not responding well to chemo and options are running out.
Linda asks prayers for her friend who is having major surgery for a blocked
carotid artery. Lee asks for prayers for her sister who is terminally ill,
that she may open her heart to the Lord and find peace in her final days.

Val asks for prayers for herself (she was just diagnosed with lupus), her
estranged husband and her sons. Flor asks for prayers that God may lead her
to the right job soon. A member requests prayers for a dear friend &
parishioner who underwent removal of a cancerous lobe of her lung. Charlene
asks prayers for a special intention.

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
