St. Charles Borromeo (1538-1584)
The name of St. Charles Borromeo is associated with reform. He lived during
the time of the Protestant Reformation, and had a hand in the reform of the
whole Church during the final years of the Council of Trent. Although he
belonged to Milanese nobility and was related to the powerful Medici family,
he desired to devote himself to the Church. When his uncle, Cardinal de
Medici, was elected pope in 1559 as Pius IV, he made Charles cardinal-deacon
and administrator of the Archdiocese of Milan while he was still a layman
and a young student. Because of his intellectual qualities he was entrusted
with several important offices connected with the Vatican and later
appointed secretary of state with responsibility for the papal states. The
untimely death of his elder brother brought Charles to a definite decision
to be ordained a priest, despite relatives' insistence that he marry. Soon
after he was ordained a priest at the age of 25, he was consecrated bishop
of Milan.   For more, follow the link below:

... and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this
saying, namely, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Love does no evil
to the neighbor; hence, love is the fulfillment of the law. ~Romans 13:8-10

Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my
disciple. ~Luke 14:25-33

We need to love God above all things, and our neighbor as ourselves. As we
imitate God's love, we also must pick up our cross each day and follow in
the footsteps of Jesus.  We'll never be alone.  Jesus will be with us, and
we'll be living according to our calling.

I pray that I may show my love for God by loving those around me.  I pray
for the grace to pick up my cross each day and follow in the footsteps of
Jesus, my Savior.

Tim and Linda ask prayers for their daughter as she has her first MRI after
receiving radiation treatments for a brain tumor ... and for Tim, Linda,
Brock and their family as well! Kathryn asks prayers for her mother who is
awaiting test results from a biopsy of a mass in her lung. Diane asks
prayers for a special intention.

Jo Ann requests prayers for special intentions for her and his family.
Grandmother requests prayers for her daughter and grandchildren who are
involved in a custody battle. Richard asks prayers for a special intention.
A member requests prayers for her son and his surgeon that his knee surgery
is successful.

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
