Blessed Anthony Grassi (1592-1671) 
Anthony's father died when his son was only 10 years old, but the young lad
inherited his father's devotion to Our Lady of Loreto. As a schoolboy he
frequented the local church of the Oratorian Fathers, joining the religious
order when he was 17.  For more, click the link below:

Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up a righteous
shoot to David; As king he shall reign and govern wisely,
he shall do what is just and right in the land.  ~Jeremiah 23:5-8

Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name
him Emmanuel which means "God is with us."  ~Matthew 1:18-25

The days are coming!  It is always good for us to have hope in God.  We know
that Jesus will come and be "God with us."  We know too, that Jesus can fill
all of our emptiness as He is born in our hearts. We can trust that Jesus
will help us bring about God's dream of peace within ourselves and in the
world we live in.

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

I pray that I may live in hopeful expectation of the coming of Jesus.  I
pray that I may allow Jesus to work in my life, that I may be part of
building a better world.

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!
