SAINT OF THE DAY

St. William of Rochester

St. William of Rochester

St. William of Rochester (d. 1201), also known as St. William of Perth, was born in Perth, Scotland. He was a wild youth who matured into a man devoted to God. He became a baker who always set bread aside to feed the poor. One day at Mass he found an abandoned baby boy on the church steps. He adopted the child, raised him, and taught him his trade. He later made a vow to visit the Holy Places on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, taking with him his adopted son. The two set out on their journey, and while traveling through England his adopted son deceived him, slit his throat, and killed him, taking all the money William had saved for the journey. William's abandoned body was found and cared for by a mentally deranged woman. She made a crown of flowers and placed it on the head of William's corpse, then afterwards put the garland on her own head. After doing this, she was cured of her mental illness. On hearing the story, local monks carried William's body to the cathedral in Rochester and buried it. His shrine later attracted many pilgrims. St. William of Rochester is the patron of adopted children. His feast day is celebrated on May 23.

Jesus

When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven
staying in Jerusalem.
At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd,
but they were confused
because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
They were astounded, and in amazement they asked,
“Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?
Then how does each of us hear them in his native language?
We are Parthians, Medes, and Elamites,
inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia,
Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
Egypt and the districts of Libya near Cyrene,
as well as travelers from Rome,
both Jews and converts to Judaism, Cretans and Arabs,
yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues
of the mighty acts of God.”



The Fortnight for Freedom will again take place from June 21 to July 4. This two-week period is a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power, including St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome.

The theme of this year’s Fortnight is Freedom to Bear Witness and will focus on how religious freedom enables us to bear witness to the truth of the Gospel. In the last three years, we have seen approximately 80% of Catholic dioceses participate.

Through prayer, education, and public action during the Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Bear Witness, we will promote the importance of preserving the essential right of religious freedom, for now and the future, for Catholics and for those of all faiths.

We have included the following documents to assist you in the journey through these weeks of prayer, gatherings and meditation. Just click on the title and download the pdf file to your computer for daily reference.
