St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)
The value Catherine makes central in her short life and which sounds clearly
and consistently through her experience is complete surrender to Christ.
What is most impressive about her is that she learns to view her surrender
to her Lord as a goal to be reached through time. She was the 23rd child of
Jacopo and Lapa Benincasa and grew up as an intelligent, cheerful and
intensely religious person. Catherine disappointed her mother by cutting off
her hair as a protest against being overly encouraged to improve her
appearance in order to attract a husband. Her father ordered her to be left
in peace and she was given a room of her own for prayer and meditation.

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

John heralded his coming by proclaiming a baptism of repentance to all the
people of Israel; and as John was completing his course, he would say, 'What
do you suppose that I am? I am not he. Behold, one is coming after me; I am
not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.'" ~Acts 13:13-25

Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and
whoever receives me receives the one who sent me." ~John 13:16-20

Jesus is the one sent by the Father.  When we receive Him we receive the
Father. And John points the way to Him.  We can receive Him and strive to
follow in His footsteps.

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

I pray that I may heed the Baptists call and strive to walk in the footsteps
of Jesus.  I pray that I may always remember that the Father and He are One.

We pray for those preparing for Sacraments, especially our 53 candidates for
Confirmation who rehearsed last night and will be Confirmed this Sunday.  We
pray for those receiving Confirmation and First Communion, especially the
second graders in our CCD Program who will receive First Communion this

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
