Monday of the 29th Week in Ordinary Time and the Memorial of Sts. John de Brebeuf, Isaac Jogues, and Companions
Greetings Dear STA Parishioners and Special Friends:
Welcome to Monday of the 29th Week in Ordinary Time and the Memorial of Sts. John de Brebeuf, Isaac Jogues, and Companions.
Deacon Tony Campise is the celebrant of today’s Liturgy of the Word and the reflection at the end is a prayer to The Infant of Prague. You can find that video now up and running on our Facebook page.
To find the video, go to our homepage, click on the link at the top of that page to our Facebook page. You will find the video there as you scroll down.
Whenever I can, I think I will start inserting a bit of info about the Saint/Saints of the Day for you as you will see below. I hope it will be informative and interesting for you.
This one today…and probably most of the ones in the future…comes directly from the Magnificat, so if you have the Magnificat it will be a duplicate for you. Here is some information about today’s saints:
Father John de Brébeuf and his seven companions, all associated with the Jesuits, were among the first missionaries to the native peoples of North America. Their work among the Huron, Iroquois, and Mohawks saw little progress while they lived; the natives blamed the “blackrobes” for every misfortune. The missions grew, watered by their blood, which was spilled in various massacres from 1642 to 1649. In the years that followed, many of the natives accepted Christ, most notably Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, who was born in the same village near Auriesville, New York, where three of the martyrs attained their crowns.
It was a wonderful Sunday of celebrations yesterday. The Masses were all “sold out” and it was so great to see those of you who were able to be there.
Thanks be to God that we are able to get together, even if only in smaller numbers. We continue to pray that we will be able to get back into the norm some day in the future, and we continue to give our God glory and praise.
