SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Josemaria Escriva

St. Josemaria Escriva

St. Josemaria Escriva (1902-1975) was born in Spain, one of six children of a devout Catholic family. Observing his parents faithfully endure painful family trials—the death of three of their young children and devastating financial setbacks—had a deepening effect on his own faith. As a teenager, he discovered his vocation to the priesthood when he saw the path of bare footprints in the snow left by a Carmelite friar. He then experienced a radical conversion; he gave up his intended career as an architect and entered the seminary. He spent most of his life studying and teaching in universities, earning a doctorate in civil law and theology. Saint Josemaria Escriva's lasting impact lies in the foundation of Opus Dei (“The Work of God”), an organization of laity and priests dedicated to the universal call of holiness and the belief that ordinary, daily life is an authentic path to sanctity. Today Opus Dei has over 80,000 members worldwide. His famous written work is "The Way," a collection of his spiritual and pastoral reflections on the Gospels and their application to everyday life. On June 26, 1975, after glancing at an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in his Rome office, St. Josemaría died suddenly of cardiac arrest. He was canonized by Pope St. John Paul II. St. Josemaria Escriva's feast day is June 26th.

HOMELESS BAGS

The Madonna Sodality would like to say “Thank you” to everyone for their generous contributions to our “Homeless Bags”. We have assembled them and they are now ready for distribution.

We will be handing them out to parishioners after the four Masses on July 1st / July 2nd weekend. If you miss this handout, you can also pick them up from the Parish Office. Luis will have them available.

 The distribution to those in need is the next step. I’ve personally handed them out and the response was lovely. A gentleman I gave one to, went through it as if it were Christmas and the bag a wonderful present.

Thanks to you, we were able to make up about 100 bags. It is our intent to try to have another round of collections in the fall. If you have an interest in learning more about this project and/or would like to help, please call Caryl DeMerritt at 707 433-8962 or Denise Dixon at 707 695-2244.

 Again, thank you for your generosity. We are truly blessed by the parishioners at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church.

 Enjoy your Summer!

GOSPEL June 25, 2017

Jesus

Jesus said to the Twelve:
"Fear no one.
Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed,
nor secret that will not be known.
What I say to you in the darkness,
speak in the light;
what you hear whispered,
proclaim on the housetops.
And do not be afraid of those who kill
the body but cannot kill the soul;
rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy
both soul and body in Gehenna.
Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin?
Yet not one of them falls to the ground
without your Father's knowledge.
Even all the hairs of your head are counted.
So do not be afraid;
you are worth more than many sparrows.
Everyone who acknowledges me before others
I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
But whoever denies me before others,
I will deny before my heavenly Father."
