Charles Lwanga and Companions (d. 1886) 
One of 22 Ugandan martyrs, Charles Lwanga is the patron of youth and
Catholic action in most of tropical Africa. He protected his fellow pages
(aged 13 to 30) from the homosexual demands of the Bagandan ruler, Mwanga,
and encouraged and instructed them in the Catholic faith during their
imprisonment for refusing the ruler's demands.  For more, follow the link

For this reason, I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you
have through the imposition of my hands. For God did not give us a spirit of
cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. ~2 Tm 1:1-3, 6-12

Some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus and put this
question to him, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us, If someone's brother
dies, leaving a wife but no child, his brother must take the wife and raise
up descendants for his brother. ~Mark 12:18-27

We can be thankful to God for the gift of God we have received though the
imposition of hands. We need not be ruled by fear or cowardice.  We can
embrace the spirit of power and love and self control.

I pray that I may come to know more deeply God's power in my life.  I pray
that I may remember God's awesome strength when I feel afraid.  I pray that
I may embrace the spirit of power and love and self-control.

Fr. Pat asks prayers of thanksgiving for good results to medical tests. 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
