PRAYER INTENTION
FOR OCTOBER

  • Today, a new impulse to the Church’s missionary activity is needed to face the challenge of proclaiming Jesus and his death and resurrection. Reaching the peripheries – the human, cultural, and religious settings still foreign to the Gospel: this is what we call the “missio ad gentes”. We must also remember that the heart of the Church’s mission is prayer.
     In this Extraordinary Missionary Month, let us pray that the Holy Spirit may engender a new missionary “spring” for all those baptized and sent by Christ’s Church.

SAINT OF THE DAY

 Pope St. John Paul II

Pope St. John Paul II (1920–2005) was born in Poland and was a vibrant, athletic, and intelligent child. His deeply religious father played an important role in his spiritual formation after his mother's death when he was 8 years old. He studied literature, poetry, and theater before his studies were interrupted by the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939. He answered the call to the priesthood, and after entering a clandestine seminary was ordained in 1946. He completed his doctoral studies in Rome and returned to Poland where he ministered in a special way to young people. He was ordained a bishop in 1958 and attended the Second Vatican Council in 1962. He is well known for his leadership in encouraging a spiritual and cultural resistance to the Communist occupation of Poland. He was elected Supreme Pontiff in 1978, the first non-Italian pope in over 450 years, and had the second-longest pontificate in history. He was a remarkable theologian and philosopher and a guardian of orthodoxy. During his time as Holy Father he gave a multitude of important contributions to the Church including his teaching on the Theology of the Body, his emphasis on the Universal Call to Holiness, and his strong devotion to the Virgin Mary. He is also known as the "Pope of the Family." During his pontificate he beatified 1338 people and canonized 482 saints. He also visited 129 countries, making him one of the most well-traveled world leaders in history. He was canonized by Pope Francis in 2014. His feast day is October 22nd.

GOSPEL

OCTOBER 20, 2019

the widow

Jesus told his disciples a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary. He said, "There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being. And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, 'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.' For a long time, the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, 'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being, because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.'" The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says. Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them? I tell you; he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

Priest of the day.
Loving Father, bless our Priests and let the Radiance of your love embrace Rev. Jose Isaac Alejandro de la Cruz St. John the Baptist Church, Napa


 Prayer for Vocations: O Lord, our God, with love and care you provided companions to the apostles to assist them in teaching and proclaiming that you are with us. Grant us, your servants here in the Diocese of Santa Rosa, priests to do your work, for our need is great.


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.

THE LITTLE BLUE BOOK

The Church’ calendar begins on the first Sunday of Advent; which means we’re starting a whole new church year! New missals, new hymnals, new lector books, and we begin a new cycle of Gospel Readings; Year A. To help you with these new beginnings we have the famous “LITTLE BLUE BOOK” now available in our Gift Store! It contains daily 6-minute reflections, prayers, and stories throughout.
The key is the right-hand page. On that page each day (except Sundays), we’ll walk through the Sunday Gospels for Cycle A (which generally are from the Gospel of St. Matthew.) On Sundays and at various times throughout the book, we will read about the Church’s tradition of angels and many more stories of the season!
 The left-hand page is like a buffet table with a variety of thoughts about the Advent and Christmas seasons, the feast of the day, and various traditions and customs. This is a GREAT gift for that someone special. The prayers and reflections begin on Dec. 1st – so get your copy now- as they go fast!



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 ROSARY

  month of the holy rosary

The Catholic Church designates October as the Month of the Holy Rosary. During this month the faithful venerate the Blessed Virgin Mary especially under her title of Our Lady of the Rosary, and make special effort to honor the Holy Rosary with group recitations and rosary processions. St. Dominic de Guzman, the founder of the Order of Preachers, is the saint to whom Our Lady famously appeared and gave the prayers of the Holy Rosary to assist him as a spiritual weapon in combating heresy and leading souls back to the one, true Catholic faith.
