St. Lawrence Ruiz and Companions (1600?-1637)
Lawrence (Lorenzo) was born in Manila of a Chinese father and a Filipino
mother, both Christians. Thus he learned Chinese and Tagalog from them and
Spanish from the Dominicans whom he served as altar boy and sacristan. He
became a professional calligrapher, transcribing documents in beautiful
penmanship. He was a full member of the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary
under Dominican auspices. He married and had two sons and a daughter.   For

Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord. ~Psalm 122

He said to them in reply, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the
word of God and act on it."  ~Luke 8:19-21

Jesus was comfortable with all people, even describing those who hear the
word of God and act on it as his own mother and brothers.  We can expand our
own horizons too, and see mother, brother and sisters in the people around
us who live out the word of God.

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

I pray that I may expand my own horizons.  I pray that I may see those who
live the word of God as my own family members.

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!

Father Pat
