Blessed Joachima (1783-1854)
Born into an aristocratic family in Barcelona, Spain, Joachima was 12 when
she expressed a desire to become a Carmelite nun. But her life took an
altogether different turn at 16 with her marriage to a young lawyer,
Theodore de Mas. Both deeply devout, they became secular Franciscans. During
their 17 years of married life they raised eight children. The normalcy of
their family life was interrupted when Napoleon invaded Spain. Joachima had
to flee with the children; Theodore, remaining behind, died. Though Joachima
reexperienced a desire to enter a religious community, she attended to her
duties as a mother. At the same time, the young widow led a life of
austerity and chose to wear the habit of the Third Order of St. Francis as
her ordinary dress. She spent much time in prayer and visiting the sick.

It is right to praise you in Zion, O God. ~Psalm 65

Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your
brother has anything against you, leave your gift there at the altar, go
first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your
gift. ~Matthew 5:20-26

We are weak people ... sometimes we hurt others, other times we are hurt.
God call us to holiness.  If we have hurt others, we're called to ask
forgiveness.  It is great when they forgive us ... but if they don't, at
least we've done our part. We need to forgive those who have harmed us as

I pray that I may be a holy person.  I pray that I may ask forgives, and
grant forgiveness to others.

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!
