St. Augustine of Canterbury (d. 605?) 
In the year 596 a small party of some 40 monks set out from Rome to
evangelize the Anglo-Saxons in England. Leading the group was Augustine, the
prior of their monastery in Rome. Hardly had he and his men reached Gaul
(France) when they heard stories of the ferocity of the Anglo-Saxons and of
the treacherous waters of the English Channel. Augustine returned to Rome
and to the pope who had sent them-St. Gregory the Great-only to be assured
by him that their fears were groundless. For more, follow the link below:

Like obedient children, do not act in compliance with the desires of your
former ignorance but, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in
every aspect of your conduct, for it is written, Be holy because I am holy.
~1 Peter 1:10-16

But many that are first will be last, and the last will be first." ~Mark

We may sometimes day, "I'd dc things differently if I knew what I know now."
And sometimes we may ask, "What do I know now."  We know that Jesus rose
from the dead.  We know He calls us to follow in His footsteps, without
calculating how much it will cost.  We don't walk in our former ignorance,
but with wisdom that comes from the Lord. "Many that are first will be last,
and the last will be first." 

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

I pray that I may learn from my former mistakes and change my way of life.
I pray that I may follow in the footsteps of Jesus without complaint or
counting the costs.  I pray that I may worry less about the treasures this
world provides and more about the treasures that last forever.

.=: W E     P R A Y  :=.

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
