Blessed Rose Venerini (1656-1728) 
Rose was born at Viterbo in Italy, the daughter of a doctor. Following the
death of her fiancé she entered a convent, but soon returned home to care
for her newly widowed mother. Meanwhile, Rose invited the women of the
neighborhood to recite the rosary in her home, forming a sort of sodality
with them.

When he had finished speaking he knelt down and prayed with them all. They
were all weeping loudly as they threw their arms around Paul and kissed him,
for they were deeply distressed that he had said that they would never see
his face again. Then they escorted him to the ship.  ~Acts 20:28-38

They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I
consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth.?
John 17:11b-19

Paul became so very close to people.  He gave them all he had, then knew he
would have to leave.  Because he was a true missionary he knew that he would
most likely not see these people again.  But his support would continue,
through prayer and even through letters. In our Gospel Jesus speaks about
the people he has drawn to Himself. He consecrates Himself for them that
they may be consecrated in truth. And through the Holy Spirit they will
never be alone.

I pray that I may develop deep relationships with ministers and people of
faith.  I pray that I may be supportive of their work.  I pray too, that I
may put to use the gifts of the Holy Spirit we await.  May I do God's will

Thursday. Paul asks prayers for a special intention. Alvina asks prayers for
a special intention. A sister in the Lord requests prayers for her best
friend, who has breast cancer, and needs surgery. A member asks for healing

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!
