SAINT OF THE DAY

 St. Anthony of the Desert

St. Anthony of the Desert
(251–356 A.D.), also known as St. Anthony the Great, was a leading figure among the Desert Fathers, the early Christian monks who lived in the Egyptian desert in the 3rd and 4th centuries. The story of his life was written by St. Athanasius of Alexandria. St. Anthony's parents were wealthy, and after their death Anthony desired to conform himself to the manner of life of the Apostles and early Christians. On hearing these words from the Gospel of Matthew in church, "If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me," St. Anthony left everything behind to live a life of prayer, fasting, self-denial, and labor. Whenever he heard of other holy people living in this manner, he would visit them to learn from their virtues in order to imitate them. He eventually removed himself from all society and became the first Christian to live a life of consecrated solitude. He occasionally left his hermitage for pressing matters, once to encourage persecuted Christians, and another time to support Pope Athanasius against the heresy of Arius. St. Anthony died at the age of one hundred and five. His feast day is January 17th.

GOSPEL

January 13, 2019

jesus being baptised by john

The people were filled with expectation, and all were asking in their hearts whether John might be the Christ. John answered them all, saying, "I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming. I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."
After all the people had been baptized and Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, "You are my beloved Son; with you 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.

Liturgical update:

WHAT IS A DEACON?
The terms “Deacon” and “Diaconate” derive from the Greek word diakonia which means “service” or “ministry.” A deacon, then, is ordained by the Church for service. Permanent deacons proclaim the Gospel at Sunday Mass and assist the priest presiding, often by accepting the offertory gifts, preparing the altar for the Liturgy of the Eucharist and, at the end of Mass, proclaiming, “Go in peace.” Deacons can administer the sacrament of baptism and serve as the church's witness at marriages. They may preside at funerals, the Liturgy of the Hours, and the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, and they may give blessings. They cannot give absolution, anoint the sick, or say Mass. However, they may distribute Holy Communion to the faithful. Some Catholics — and non-Catholics, too — see permanent deacons in other activities, especially in prison ministry, pre-marriage instruction, preparing candidates for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, visiting the elderly and those in the hospital, and volunteering with charities that care for the poor and needy, and much more. Deacons, like priests and bishops, wear the stole. However, deacons place the stole over their left shoulder and it hangs across to their right side, while priests and bishops wear it around the neck.
