SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Margaret of Hungary

St. Margaret of Hungary (1242–1271) was the daughter of King Bela IV of Hungary, and niece of the famed St. Elizabeth of Hungary. Her royal parents made a vow to God that if Hungary was saved from the Mongol invasion, they would dedicate Margaret to religion. God heard their prayer and the country was saved. The king and queen then entrusted four-year-old Margaret to be raised and educated in a Dominican convent. At the age of ten Margaret was transferred to the Convent of the Blessed Virgin founded by her parents, built on an island her parents named after her. Margaret spent the rest of her life there, dedicating herself to prayer and severe penances. She opposed her father's attempts to arrange her political marriage with the King of Bohemia, even though her suitor obtained a dispensation from the pope to release her from her religious vows so that she could enter into matrimony. Margaret made her solemn vows as a Dominican nun at the age of eighteen. Although a beautiful princess, she took the most menial tasks in the convent and dedicated her life to serving the poor and sick. She was considered a saint during her life and after her death. Many miracles, especially the curing of illnesses, were attributed to her intercession. She died at the age of 28. Her feast day is January 18.

3 wise men bearing gifts for jesus

Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. John tried to prevent him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you are coming to me?” Jesus said to him in reply, “Allow it now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed him. After Jesus was baptized, he came up from the water and behold, the heavens were opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming upon him. And a voice came from the heavens, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”


Prayer to St. Michael
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all other evil spirits who prowl the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

Now, as never before, the Church needs the intercession of St. Michael.
Please say this prayer every day.

Our big project for the year, the Madonna Country Village, was cancelled, due to the Kincaid fire/evacuation.
 On February 2nd, in the Hall, we plan on raffling off our beautiful handmade quilt and wonderful baskets and sell the gently used items that we’ve been collecting. We’ll also have fresh baked goods for sale.
All this starts after the 9 am Mass and runs until about 3 pm. Everyone should be home in time to enjoy the Super-bowl.
In March, we have a free Women’s Retreat. Sister Dianne has agreed to once again host this event in her home. This is a ‘must have” for all the women in the Parish. I always come away with a feeling of peace and renewal.
 The Madonna’s mission is to live our Christian beliefs. Our goal is to incorporate and uphold our beliefs in all aspects of our daily lives, and to live our faith and become an example of our Christian life for those around us. We encourage the women of our Parish to become a part of something wonderful in our Church.
 Please consider joining The Madonna’s. Call Ginny Gumina 707 838-3384 or Caryl DeMerritt 707 433-8962 for more information. If you prefer to speak to someone who speaks Spanish, call Conchita Violetti 707 838-7725.


Preparing for and Dealing with Power Shutoffs

This project originated to assist residents of the Lakewood Hills area of Windsor, California and people in the greater fire-risk community to deal with planned power shutoffs by the commercial electric power provider. Health, safety, comfort, property protection, resilience and care for those residents who require extra assistance are the key concerns.

These guidelines pertain primarily to the suburban neighborhoods where most residents live in single family detached buildings, townhomes or duplexes and have the means to procure necessary items in advance.

While many of the preparatory and adaptive steps outlined here will apply to people living in urban areas, rural environments, in multiple-unit dwellings or in other settings, the contributors to this project did not have the experience to specifically address all of those needs.

Secondary goals of the project are to provide this information to people in all areas at risk for power shutoff and to document lessons learned for future benefit.

MONTH OF THE HOLY NAME

  month of the Holy Name
 

The month of January is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. After the Blessed Virgin Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit, the angel Gabriel appeared to St. Joseph and told him that the Child’s name should be called Jesus, meaning “God Saves.” According to Jewish law, on the 8th day after his birth a male child was to be circumcised, receive his name, and become a full member of God’s covenant people. According to the old Roman liturgical calendar, the Feast of the Circumcision of Jesus was celebrated on January 1st, eight days after Christmas, the same day that He was given His sacred name. Currently we celebrate the Solemnity of the Mother of God on January 1st and honor the Holy Name of Jesus on January 3rd. For Catholics, Jesus’ sacred name is the object of a special devotion symbolized by the monogram “IHS,” (sometimes called a Christogram), which is the first three letters of the Greek spelling of His name.
