St. Leander of Seville (c. 550-600)
The next time you recite the Nicene Creed at Mass, think of today?s saint.
For it was Leander of Seville who, as bishop, introduced the practice in
the sixth century. He saw it as a way to help reinforce the faith of his
people and as an antidote against the heresy of Arianism, which denied the
divinity of Christ. By the end of his life, Leander had helped
Christianity flourish in Spain at a time of political and religious
upheaval. For more, follow the link below:

When Abram prostrated himself, God spoke to him: ?My covenant with you is
this: you are to become the father of a host of nations. No longer shall
you be called Abram; your name shall be Abraham, for I am making you the
father of a host of nations. ~ Genesis 17:3-9

Jesus said to the Jews: ?Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps my word
will never see death.?  ~ John 8:51-59

requests from us when he says, "Whoever keeps my word will never see

I pray that I may never stop believing that God will answer my most
fervent prayers.  I pray that I may be a willing follower by following
Jesus words.  I pray that I may unite myself with God's people as we
strive together to do Jesus' work in the world we live in.

.=: 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!
