Today we wake up in Sorrento.  We celebrate Mass at 8 a.m. In the Cathedral
At Sorrento. We leave from Sorrento's Main Square (Piazza Tasso) to the pier

The mysterious, breathtaking Grotto Azzurra Anacapri (the Blue Grotto) and
Visit the Villa San Michele. Keep us in your prayers and know you and your
Intentions are remembered in ours as well!

St. Margaret of Scotland (1050?-1093)
Margaret of Scotland was a truly liberated woman in the sense that she was
Free to be herself. For her, that meant freedom to love God and serve
Others. Margaret was not Scottish by birth. She was the daughter of Princess
Agatha of Hungary and the Anglo-Saxon Prince Edward Atheling. She spent much
Of her youth in the court of her great-uncle, the English king, Edward the
Confessor. Her family fled from William the Conqueror and was shipwrecked
Off the coast of Scotland. King Malcolm befriended them and was captivated
By the beautiful, gracious Margaret. They were married at the castle of
Dunfermline in 1070.  For more, follow the link below:

When one finds a worthy wife, her value is far beyond pearls. Her husband,
Entrusting his heart to her, has an unfailing prize. She brings him good,
And not evil, all the days of her life. ~Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31
His master said to him in reply, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that
I harvest where I did not plant and gather where I did not scatter? Should
You not then have put my money in the bank so that I could have got it back
With interest on my return? ~Matthew 25:4-30

Our reading from the Book of Proverbs talks about a wonderful and worthy
Wife.  The author cannot say enough good things about her.  As the author
Says, "Give her a reward for her labors, and let her works praise her at the
City gates."  She certainly uses her gifts and talents in the way God
Intended when he have them to her.  In our Gospel reading though, we have
Some who use their talents well, and others who don't. May we learn a
Lesson, and strive each day to use the many gifts God has given us in worthy
.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.
I pray that I may use the gifts and talents God has given me in worthy ways.
I pray that others may be helped to come closer to God by the example I set
For them to follow.

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!
