Wednesday of the 31st Week in Ordinary Time and The Memorial of St. Charles Borromeo
Greetings Dear STA Parishioners and Special Friends:
Welcome to Wednesday of the 31st Week in Ordinary Time and the Memorial of St. Charles Barromeo. Our readings for today can be found if you Click Here for Today's Readings .
Fr. James Dorman is our celebrant and homilist for today’s Liturgy of the Word, which is up and running now on our STA Facebook page. The reflection at the end of the Liturgy of the Word is a prayer to St. Joseph for his intercession for us in this desperate time of need.
Here is a bit of information on our Saint of the Day from the Magnificat:
St. Charles Borromeo
Born at the Castle of Arona in northern Italy, Charles Borromeo studied canon and civil law. After his uncle was elected Pope Pius IV, Charles received a number of powerful preferments, yet his energies were bent toward reform. He guided the final session of the Council of Trent. When he was appointed to Milan, a diocese that had lacked a resident bishop for eighty years, Charles renewed catechesis and led the mostly lax clergy by his own austere example and diligent preaching: “We ought to walk in front,” he told his priests, “and our spiritual subjects will follow us more easily.” Charles died in 1584.

Your servant in Christ,
