SAINT OF THE DAY

St. John Eudes

St. John Eudes

St. John Eudes (1601–1680) was born in Normandy, France to a farming family. His devout parents consecrated him to the Blessed Virgin Mary when he was a child. At the age of 14 he took a vow of chastity, and studied under the Jesuits where he earned the reputation of being a brilliant student. After his ordination to the priesthood he ministered to his countrymen who were suffering from an outbreak of the plague. He later became a missionary priest, traveling throughout France and preaching strong sermons to large crowds in churches, open fields, and in the courts of the royalty and nobility. The force of his sermons was bolstered by his great sanctity; he was considered to be a prodigy and the greatest preacher of his age. He was instrumental in spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary throughout France during a time when religious fervor had grown cold. He was responsible for influencing the Church to establish these two devotions with liturgical feasts, himself composing their Mass and Office. St. John Eudes founded several organizations including the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Refuge, which provided a new life for repentant prostitutes, and the Society of Jesus and Mary (the Eudist Fathers), which specialized in improving the training of seminarians by promoting greater virtue and dedication to the preaching of parish missions. St. John Eudes' feast day is August 19th.

GOSPEL AUGUST 20,2017

Jesus

At that time, Jesus withdrew
 to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
And behold, a Canaanite woman
of that district came and called out,
"Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David!
My daughter is tormented by a demon."
But Jesus did not say a word in answer to her.
Jesus' disciples came and asked him,
"Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us."
He said in reply,
"I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
But the woman came and did Jesus homage,
saying, "Lord, help me."
He said in reply,
"It is not right to take the food of the children
and throw it to the dogs."
She said, "Please, Lord,
for even the dogs eat the scraps
that fall from the table of their masters."
Then Jesus said to her in reply,
"O woman, great is your faith!
Let it be done for you as you wish."
And the woman's daughter
was healed from that hour.



ANNOUNCEMENTS

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Golf Tournament at the Windsor Golf Course. It was a fun-filled day and evening event.

The many workers behind the scenes are essential to an undertaking like this and their efforts on behalf of the church are greatly appreciated.

The purpose, of course, was to raise money to fund Feed the Hungry and the youth ministries of OLG.

St. Vincent de Paul also participated in our fundraiser and held a successful live auction event benefiting The Dining Room in Santa Rosa.

A very special thank you goes out ot Barbara Stevens, who contributed greatly of her time, talents and treasure to assure the success of this fundraiser.

 The District, as a result of retirements and end-of-term duties, is in immediate need of senior staff to help with Vice President, Treasurer and President duties. Give it some thought. It is, as Pope Francis reminds us, ….” time taken to help others”.

That crisis line is still the only one of its kind in Sonoma County and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call (707) 545-7273 for help.
