St. Louis Mary de Montfort (1673-1716)
Louis's life is inseparable from his efforts to promote genuine devotion to
Mary, the mother of Jesus and mother of the Church.Totus tuus(completely
yours) was Louis's personal motto; Karol Wojtyla chose it as his episcopal
Born in the Breton village of Montfort, close to Rennes (France), as an
adult Louis identified himself by the place of his Baptism instead of his
family name, Grignion. After being educated by the Jesuits and the
Sulpicians, he was ordained as a diocesan priest in 1700. For more, click

Saint of the Day:

With one accord, the crowds paid attention to what was said by Philip when
they heard it and saw the signs he was doing.
For unclean spirits, crying out in a loud voice, came out of many possessed
people, and many paralyzed or crippled people were cured. There was great
joy in that city. ~Acts 8:5-8, 14-17
Jesus said to his disciples: "If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with
you always, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because it
neither sees nor knows him. ~John 14:15-21

The power of the Resurrection was truly awesome! The disciples were able to
heal, cure, drive out unclean spirits and more. In our Gospel Jesus promises
the Holy Spirit, another Advocate to be with us always. The power of the
Resurrection is unleashed in us as well. We need to know and believe in the
power we have received. We need to use it with confidence, as Jesus' early
disciples did.

I pray that I may be open to receiving the Holy Spirit. I pray that I may
believe in and put to good use the power I have received through the
Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

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!
