That, rejecting the culture of indifference, we may care for our neighbors who suffer, especially the sick and the poor.
- Evangelization: Openess to mission
That Mary's intercession may help Christians in secularized cultures be ready to proclaim Jesus.

SAINT OF THE DAY
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.
