Blessed John XXIII (1881-1963) 
Although few people had as great an impact on the 20th century as Pope John
XXIII, he avoided the limelight as much as possible. Indeed, one writer has
noted that his "ordinariness" seems one of his most remarkable qualities.
The firstborn son of a farming family in Sotto il Monte, near Bergamo in
northern Italy, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli was always proud of his
down-to-earth roots. In Bergamo's diocesan seminary, he joined the Secular
Franciscan Order.  For more, follow the link below:

As for the dead being raised, have you not read in the Book of Moses, in the
passage about the bush, how God told him,
I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not
God of the dead but of the living. You are greatly misled." ~Mark 12:18-27

There are things we simply cannot understand in the world we live in.  We
can try as hard as we can, and there are still mysteries.  We continue to
live as God's children.  We know that someday, when we see the Lord face to
face, we will understand. 

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

I pray that I may always have confidence in God.  I pray that I may never
forget God's love for me.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We

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!
