St. Cyril of Jerusalem (315?-386)
The crises that the Church faces today may seem minor when compared with the
threat posed by the Arian heresy, which denied the divinity of Christ and
almost overcame Christianity in the fourth century. Cyril was to be caught
up in the controversy, accused (later) of Arianism by St. Jerome, and
ultimately vindicated both by the men of his own time and by being declared
a Doctor of the Church in 1822. Raised in Jerusalem, well-educated,
especially in the Scriptures, he was ordained a priest by the bishop of
Jerusalem and given the task of catechizing during Lent those preparing for
Baptism and during the Easter season the newly baptized. His Catecheses
remain valuable as examples of the ritual and theology of the Church in the
mid-fourth century.

For today's Scriptures, follow this link: http://www.usccb.org/nab/ 

They have soon turned aside from the way I pointed out to them, making for
themselves a molten calf and worshiping it,
sacrificing to it and crying out, 'This is your God, O Israel, who brought
you out of the land of Egypt!' ~Exodus 32:7-14

You search the Scriptures, because you think you have eternal life through
them; even they testify on my behalf. But you do not want to come to me to
have life. ~John 5:31-47

We search for meaning in so many ways. People are so easily mislead by false
teaching, fortune tellers and more. Yet God continues to provide meaning in
our lives. During this Holy Season we can turn to God with all our hearts
and find true happiness, hope and salvation.

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

I pray that I may turn to God with all my heart. I pray that I may find the
happiness, hope and salvation that I seek.

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
