St. Gregory Grassi and Companions (d. 1900)
Christian missionaries have often gotten caught in the crossfire of wars
against their own countries. When the governments of Britain, Germany,
Russia and France forced substantial territorial concessions from the
Chinese in 1898, anti-foreign sentiment grew very strong among many Chinese
people. Gregory Grassi was born in Italy in 1833, ordained in 1856 and sent
to China five years later. Gregory was later ordained Bishop of North
Shanxi. With 14 other European missionaries and 14 Chinese religious, he was
martyred during the short but bloody Boxer Uprising of 1900.

Thus says the LORD: When Israel was a child I loved him, out of Egypt I
called my son. The more I called them, the farther they went from me,
Sacrificing to the Baals and burning incense to idols. ~Hosea 11:1-4, 8c-9

Jesus said to his Apostles: "As you go, make this proclamation: 'The Kingdom
of heaven is at hand.' Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers,
drive out demons. Without cost you have received; without cost you are to
give." ~Matthew 10:7-15

.=: M E D I T A T I O N    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

As Jesus sends out his Apostles, he sends us as well. We are called to be
faithful and to announce "The Kingdom of heaven is at hand."  We can trust
that the Lord will be with us to provide all the courage, strength and power
we need to carry out His will.

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

I pray that I may follow the Lord's call.  I pray that I may have confidence
that the Lord will give me all I need to be faithful to His call.

Jenie asks prayers for a friend's dad who is hospitalized with a leg
infection, bruising and blood clots after a bad fall. Jill asks prayers for
her husband who has an important interview on Friday that could help change
their lives. A mother requests prayers for her young son who needs God's
help to stop drinking and find a job.

Ann asks prayers for a religious Sister who is having a bone scan, for
favorable results. Luvina is thankful for her grandchildren, good report for
grandson after brain surgery and requests prayers for a granddaughter who
will be evaluated next week at one of the Shriner's Hospitals.

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
