Welcome to Monday of the 19th Week in Ordinary Time and the Feast of St. Lawrence, the Patron St. of Deacons.  As Deacon Tony points out in his intro in today’s Liturgy of the Word video, he is also the Patron St. of comedians, as St. Lawrence is well known for the “humor”  he uttered while he was being martyred.  Be sure and check out today’s video for that.

We hope your weekend was a blessed one, and we are so glad that you are here with us today.
