Blessed Joachima (1783-1854) 
Born nto an aristocratic family in Barcelona, Spain, Joachima was 12 when
she expressed a desire to become a Carmelite nun. But her life took an
altogether different turn at 16 with her marriage to a young lawyer,
Theodore de Mas. Both deeply devout, they became secular Franciscans. During
their 17 years of married life they raised eight children.   For more,

Elijah said to her, "Do not be afraid. Go and do as you propose. But first
make me a little cake and bring it to me.
Then you can prepare something for yourself and your son. For the LORD, the
God of Israel, says, 'The jar of flour shall not go empty, nor the jug of
oil run dry, until the day when the LORD sends rain upon the earth.'" She
left and did as Elijah had said. She was able to eat for a year, and Elijah
and her son as well; the jar of flour did not go empty, nor the jug of oil
run dry, as the LORD had foretold through Elijah. ~1 Kings 7:7=16

Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good
deeds and glorify your heavenly Father." Matthew 5:13-16

Jesus often singles out the very generous.  Their resources may be very
limited, just a little flour in the jar, and a tiny bit of oil.  They found
out, that their gift was very important.  It had been given out of their
want, not out of their wealth. And their light shines before all!
Spiritually they are very rich! The ones who are rich in "things" are often
not willing to give anything at all.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may not judge my riches by how many things I have.  I pray
that I may see the depth of my faith as I am inspired Elijah.  "I pray that
like them, my light sine before all"

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
