Blessed Rafal Chylinski (1694-1741)
Born near Buk in the Poznan region of Poland, Melchior showed early signs
of religious devotion; family members nicknamed him "the little monk."
After completing his studies at the Jesuit college in Poznan, Melchior
joined the cavalry and was promoted to the rank of officer within three
years. Against the urgings of his military comrades, in 1715 Melchior
joined the Conventual Franciscans in Kraków, receiving the name Rafal, and
was ordained two years later. After pastoral assignments in nine cities,
he came to Lagiewniki (central Poland), where he spent the last 13 years
of his life, except for 20 months ministering to flood and epidemic
victims in Warsaw. In all these places, Rafal was known for his simple and
candid sermons, for his generosity as well as his ministry in the
confessional. People of all levels of society were drawn to the
self-sacrificing way he lived out his religious profession and priestly
ministry. For more, follow the link below:

On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils all peoples, The web
that is woven over all nations; he will destroy death forever. The Lord
GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces; The reproach of his people he
will remove from the whole earth; for the Lord has spoken. ~Isaiah

They placed them at his feet, and he cured them. The crowds were amazed
when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the lame
walking, and the blind able to see, and they glorified the God of Israel.
~Matthew 15:29-37

What a wonderful day it will be when Jesus comes in His glory. All we hope
for will come into being. During this Holy Season though, the Lord calls
us to get involved in building His Kingdom ... by promoting justice and
building peace, by showing concern for the sick and the poor and bringing
God's healing presence, by living in a confusing world but following in
His footsteps.

I pray that God's dream for the world might be my dream. I pray that I may
become more and more involved in ushering in His Kingdom.

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
