St. Alphonsus Rodriguez (c. 1533-1617) 
Alphonsus found happiness through simple service and prayer. He inherited
the family textile business at 23.  Within 3 years his wife, daughter and
mother died and business was poor.  He sold it and he and his young son
moved in with his sister. His son died too, and he applied to join the
Jesuits ... twice. He served as doorkeeper at the Jesuit college in Majorca.
When not working he was almost always at prayer. His simple holiness and
prayerfulness attracted many to him, including St. Peter Claver, then a
Jesuit seminarian ... and Gerard Manley Hopkins who made him the subject of
one of his poems.  For more, follow the link below:

"We know that all creation is groaning in labor pains even until now; and
not only that, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, we
also grown within ourselves as we wait for adoption, the redemption of our
bodies."  ~ Romans 8:18-25

The Kingdom of God "is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three
measures of wheat flour until the whole batch of dough was leavened."  ~
Luke 13:18-21

We wait with endurance for what we do not see.  We rely on our faith, a
faith that is certainly sufficient. As our faith is shared it becomes like
yeast as it grows too in the lives of those around us!

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

I pray that I may realize that hope means waiting and truly expecting
something that I cannot see.  I pray that I may wait in joyful hope, and
that my faith may strengthen the faith of those around me.

.=: 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
