St. John Leonardi (1541?-1609) 
"I am only one person! Why should I do anything? What good would it do?"
Today, as in any age, people seem plagued with the dilemma of getting
involved. In his own way John Leonardi answered these questions. He chose to
become a priest.  For more, follow the link below:

But when I saw that they were not on the right road in line with the truth
of the Gospel, I said to Cephas in front of all, "If you, though a Jew, are
living like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel the Gentiles to
live like Jews?" ~Galatians 2:1-2, 7-14

"Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples." He said to them,
"When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your Kingdom come. Give
us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive
everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test." ~Luke

Paul was very careful to make sure the leaders of the Church were on the
right line with the truth of the Gospel.  When they weren't he was compelled
to remind them. In today's Gospel Jesus' disciples ask him to teach them to
pray.  Through prayer we attune ourselves to God.  When we read the Gospel
and pray, then we align ourselves with the truth of the Gospel, follow in
Jesus' footsteps and do God's will.  May we always pray and remain open to
God's call in our lives, that we may follow that call wherever it leads us.

I pray that I may be on the right road in line with the truth of the Gospel.
I pray that I may pray as Jesus taught us, and then summon the courage to
follow in His footsteps.

Nancy from PA requests prayers for her adult children that they may return
to the faith of their Baptism and the practice of the Sacraments. Dorothy
asks for many prayers for a co-worker whose cancer has returned for the
third time and for her brother who has cancer. Rose asks prayers for her
brother, who is having marital problems.

Rena requests prayers for a friend who has a brain tumor... that it will be
shrunken and that it will be healed. Elaine asks prayers for a special
intention. Mary requests prayers that her husband get a secure, permanent,
full time job.

Irene asks prayers for a special intention. Veronica asks prayers for her
son who is having trouble focusing in school. Alvina asks prayers for a
special intention. Kathy asks prayers for a special intention.

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
