SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Margaret Clitherow

St. Margarita Clitherow

St. Margarita Clitherow (1556-1586), también llamado Margarita de York, vivían en York, Inglaterra, la hija de un fabricante de velas y esposa de un rico Protestantes carnicero. Anglicana se creó justo después de la vez que el rey Enrique VIII separó de la Iglesia Católica. Unos pocos años después de su matrimonio, a la edad de 18 años, convirtió a la Iglesia Católica debido a la labor de misionero encubierta los sacerdotes católicos. Mientras su marido seguía siendo protestante, asistido por los Católicos perseguidos por albergar los sacerdotes (incluyendo su hermano-en-ley) y de masa y Confesiones dice en su casa, que se convirtió en una casa de seguridad y escondite para los sacerdotes. Margarita fue testigo de la tortuosa muerte de muchos de los sacerdotes, ayudados después de su captura, y orar públicamente en el lugar donde fueron asesinados. Sin desanimarse, fue encarcelada varias veces por su actividad religiosa. En su última detención, fue acusada de albergar los sacerdotes católicos y condenados a una ejecución pública por ser aplastados. Ella se sintió indigno de tan gran martirio. Sus tres hijos entraron en la vida religiosa, dos sacerdotes y una monja. St. Margarita Clitherow, la "Perla de York", es el santo patrón de los mártires, los ejecutivos y convierte. El día de su festividad es el 26 de marzo.

The Annunciation

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation, a solemnity of the Catholic Church. The Annunciation celebrates the meeting between the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary, the day when St. Gabriel announced to her that she would conceive a Child by the Holy Spirit. It is the moment of Mary’s great fiat of perfect submission to the will of God, and the day the Church celebrates the Incarnation of Jesus Christ in the womb of His Blessed Mother, exactly nine months before the Feast of the Nativity on December 25. We read about how St. Gabriel was the special messenger of the good news of the coming of Jesus Christ in first chapter of Luke's Gospel. The Annunciation is also the biblical event we remember with the first Joyful Mystery of the Holy Rosary.

jesus with disciples

Some Greeks who had come to worship at the Passover Feast
came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee,
and asked him, “Sir, we would like to see Jesus.”
Philip went and told Andrew;
then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.
Jesus answered them,
“The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies,
it remains just a grain of wheat;
but if it dies, it produces much fruit.
Whoever loves his life loses it,
and whoever hates his life in this world
will preserve it for eternal life.
Whoever serves me must follow me,
and where I am, there also will my servant be.
The Father will honor whoever serves me.

“I am troubled now. Yet what should I say?
‘Father, save me from this hour’?
But it was for this purpose that I came to this hour.
Father, glorify your name.”
Then a voice came from heaven,
“I have glorified it and will glorify it again.”
The crowd there heard it and said it was thunder;
but others said, “An angel has spoken to him.”
Jesus answered and said,
“This voice did not come for my sake but for yours.
Now is the time of judgment on this world;
now the ruler of this world will be driven out.
And when I am lifted up from the earth,
I will draw everyone to myself.”
He said this indicating the kind of death he would die.
