SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Martha

Saint Martha

Saint Martha (1st c.) was a pious Jewish woman from Bethany near Jerusalem. She was a close friend of Jesus during his earthly ministry, as was her brother, Saint Lazarus, and her sister, Saint Mary of Bethany (Saint Mary Magdalene). The Gospels tell us that "Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary and Lazarus." Martha would serve the Lord faithfully when he was a guest in her home, once busying herself so much with her work that she neglected to spend time enjoying his presence, for which she earned a gentle rebuke from Our Lord. Martha had great faith in Christ, especially evidenced in her belief that he could raise her brother Lazarus from the dead. In the Gospels we read that Saint Martha testified that Jesus was the Son of God even before his Passion and Resurrection. According to tradition, after the Ascension of Jesus into heaven, Saint Martha gathered a group of women together to live, pray, and do penance in common, one of the early Christian houses of consecrated women. Saint Martha is the patron of servers, maids, butlers, servants, single laywomen, homemakers, housewives, and cooks. Her feast day is July 29th.

hands in prayer

Jesus was praying in a certain place,
and when he had finished,
one of his disciples said to him,
"Lord, teach us to pray just as

John taught his disciples." 
He said to them, "When you pray, say:
Father, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
for we ourselves forgive
everyone in debt to us,
and do not subject us
 to the final test."

And he said to them,
 "Suppose one of you
has a friend to whom he goes
 at midnight and says,
'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
for a friend of mine has arrived
at my house from a journey
and I have nothing to offer him,'
and he says in reply from within,
'Do not bother me; the door
has already been locked
and my children and I
are already in bed. 
I cannot get up to give
you anything.' I tell you,
if he does not get up to give
the visitor the loaves
because of their friendship,
he will get up to give him
whatever he needs
because of his persistence.

"And I tell you,
ask and you will receive;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.
  For everyone who asks, receives;
and the one who seeks, finds;
and to the one who knocks,
the door will be opened.
  What father among you would hand his
son a snake when he asks for a fish? 
Or hand him a scorpion
when he asks for an egg? 
If you then, who are wicked,
know how to give good gifts
to your children,
how much more will the
Father in heaven
give the Holy Spirit to those
who ask him?"



Help!!!!
The Ride to Mass Ministry needs drivers. I am the only driver and I also bring Eucharist to assisted living people on Sunday after Mass, so it's not always convenient for those seeking a ride. “Lita” called me yesterday and begged for someone to take her to 5 o'clock Mass as she hasn’t been to church in almost a year. Please call Joe Tembrock at 707-568-6061 or contact the parish office if you can help.



Year of Mercy logo

                                Quote from Pope Francis:
 
Dear brothers and sisters,
 I have often thought of how the Church may render more clear her mission to be a witness to mercy; and we have to make this journey. It is a journey which begins with spiritual conversion. Therefore, I have decided to announce an Extraordinary Jubilee which has at its centre the mercy of God. It will be a Holy Year of Mercy. We want to live in the light of the word of the Lord: “Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful” (cf. Lk 6:36).  Jesus’ reminder urges each of us never to stop at the surface of things, especially when we have a person before us. We are called to look beyond, to focus on the heart in order to see how much generosity everyone is capable of. No one can be excluded from the mercy of God; everyone knows the way to access it and the Church is the house where everyone is welcomed and no one is rejected. Her doors remain wide open, so that those who are touched by grace may find the assurance of forgiveness.
 

Year of Mercy

Weekly Reflection

"Being Christian isn't easy and we cannot become Christian with our own strength; we need the grace of God. There is a prayer which should be said every day: 'Lord, grant me the grace to become a good Christian, because I cannot do it alone.'"
— Pope Francis
 

Thank you for participating in our Lenten service project of “comfort bags” for the homeless. We assembled and distributed over 60 bags to the homeless last week with socks, soap, washcloths and other goodies in them.
To provide you with the opportunity to continue this service throughout the year, we are going to continue preparing bags and have them available in the church office. If you wish to participate, you can pick one of these bags in the office and have it available to hand out when you see a needy person. Together, we can let everyone know they are important. Thank you
