St. Bonaventure (1221-1274)
Bonaventure, Franciscan, theologian, doctor of the Church, was both learned
and holy. Because of the spirit that filled him and his writings, he was at
first called the Devout Doctor; but in more recent centuries he has been
known as the Seraphic Doctor after the "Seraphic Father" Francis because of
the truly Franciscan spirit he possessed.
Saint of the Day:

But within sixty years and five, Ephraim shall be crushed, no longer a
nation. Unless your faith is firm you shall not be firm!  ~Isaiah 7:1-9
Jesus began to reproach the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been
done, since they had not repented.  ~Matthew 11:20-24

Sometimes people have considered themselves fortunate to have a deep
experience of God.  Then they don't take this experience to heart in
conversion of their own lives.  Cities have been like that too, exalting
themselves to the skies, yet refusing to heed the Lord's call. The end in
both cases is tragic.
.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.
I pray that I may listen to God's call, knowing that unless my faith is
firm, I shall not be firm. I pray that when in need of repentance, I may do
so.  I pray that I may heed the Lord's call wherever it leads me.

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!
