St. Henry (972-1024)
As German king and Holy Roman Emperor, Henry was a practical man of affairs.
He was energetic in consolidating his rule. He crushed rebellions and feuds.
On all sides he had to deal with drawn-out disputes so as to protect his
frontiers. This involved him in a number of battles, especially in the south
in Italy; he also helped Pope Benedict VIII quell disturbances in Rome.
Always his ultimate purpose was to establish a stable peace in Europe.
According to eleventh-century custom, Henry took advantage of his position
and appointed as bishops men loyal to him. In his case, however, he avoided
the pitfalls of this practice and actually fostered the reform of
ecclesiastical and monastic life.

God upholds his city for ever. ~Psalm 48

For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Sodom, it would
have remained until this day. But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for
the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you." ~Matthew 11:20-24

None of us are perfect. All of us need to repent from time to time.  In
today's Gospel cities that refused to repent are not promised good things.
We can turn back to the Lord with all our hearts and receive forgiveness and
the strength to start anew ... living the lives God calls us to live.

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

I pray that I may not be proud.  I pray that I may be humble enough to
repent and turn back to God with all my heart.

A member asks prayers for all those traveling tomorrow that they have a safe
and smooth journey. Jill requests prayers for her husband who is waiting to
hear if he is offered his dream job and allow him to be home with his family
more. Margaret asks prayers for a special intention.

Irene asks prayers for a special intention. A member requests prayers for my
husband's 49 year old nephew who is in ICU with uncontrolled bleeding, that
they find the cause and are able to heal. A sister requests prayers for her
brother who needs strength and comfort to get through a tough situation.

Charlene asks prayers for several intentions. Gloria asks prayers for her
husband who has been diagnosed with cancer. Joseph asks prayers for a
special intention.

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
