Chapel of Our Lady of Angels near Assisi
Saint Francis wanted everyone to have a great veneration for this special place.
 Today’s feast day is very important to the Order of Friars Minor of Saint Francis of Assisi. The saint cherished and loved this little chapel of Our Lady of Angels near Assisi… It was where the Lord had intended for him to start his Order—which is why he wanted to call that church Our Lady of the Portiuncula,
since it was destined to be the mother and head of a small flock of Friars Minor.
Saint Francis wanted everyone to have a great veneration for this special place. In January 1223, accompanied by Brother Francis Massé, he went to visit Pope Honorius III, who was then in Perugia, and obtained from him a plenary indulgence on this day each year for those who would come to the Church of Our Lady of the Angels from the sunset of the first day of August and stay until the sunset of the feast day, on the second day of that month,
on which day the church had been solemnly dedicated by seven bishops by order of the Pope.
Saint Bonaventure said that at the time of his death, Saint Francis had asked to be carried to the Church of Our Lady of the Angels,
so as to finish his temporal life in the special place where he had received the spiritual life and the life of grace.

It Makes No Sense Not To Believe In GOD 
    Every Christian must be a living book wherein one can read the teaching of the gospel

If we want to grow in the love of Jesus
In every Catholic home, even the poorest, you can find a Rosary.
In moments of joy or sadness, when believers turn to God, they pray the Rosary...
In Lourdes, the Immaculate prayed on her Rosary beads and encouraged Bernadette to recite it with her.
If we want to grow in the love of Jesus, we must meditate the mysteries of the Rosary with Mary,
constantly repeating and whispering the Ave Maria.
Nobody in the world, even among the angels, has loved and loves the Lord Jesus as much as the Mother of God.  --Saint Maximilian Kolbe


What is the Respect Life Program?
NEW materials are produced each year to help Catholics understand, value, and become engaged with supporting the dignity of the human person, and therefore the gift of every person's life. Materials are developed for use in parishes, schools, and faith-based ministries, but are also suitable for individual use. The program begins anew each October
(Respect Life Month) and continues through the following September.

God Bless Mother Angelica 1923-2016
                                                                          

      Because of prayers during the campaign 2016 that just ended, 872 babies were spared from abortion
when their mothers chose life at the last possible moment.
They were scheduled to be aborted ... but they are alive today --
and often it was the sight of faithful people praying outside the abortion center that made all the difference in the world.

Since 40 Days for Life started as a coordinated effort in 2007,
we are aware of 12,668 children whose mothers had a change of heart and said "yes" to life.



                                                                                                                      We are the defenders of true freedom.
  May our witness unveil the deception of the "pro-choice" slogan.
40 days for Life Campaign saves lives Shawn Carney Campaign Director www.40daysforlife.com
Please help save the unborn they are the future for the world

It is a great poverty that a child must die so that you may live as you wish
-- Mother Teresa

 Saving babies, healing moms and dads, 'The Gospel of Life'

Pray that when those representing Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups
see volunteers for 40 Days for Life, they see ambassadors of Christ,
and may each volunteer be consciously aware at all times we represent Him.

Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life.
Therefore the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits. -- St. Philip Neri

Isaiah 49:14-15 ; 14 But Zion said, "The LORD has forsaken me, my Lord has forgotten me." 15 "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.

Psalms 62:2-3, 6-9 ; 1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. 2 He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly moved. 5 For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him. 6 He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. 7 On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. [Selah]

1 Corinthians 4:1-5 ;  1 This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. I do not even judge myself. 4 I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me. 5 Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then every man will receive his commendation from God.

Matthew 6:24-34
; 24 "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. 25 "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, `What shall we eat?' or `What shall we drink?' or `What shall we wear?' 32 For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. 34 "Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day.
 

   Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.

Please pray for those who have no one to pray for them.

Now there is a great difference between believing in Christ, and in believing that Jesus is the Christ.
For that he was the Christ even the devils believed;
but he believes in Christ who both loves Christ, and hopes in Christ.  -- St. Augustine


8 Martyrs Move Closer to Sainthood 8 July, 2016

The Virgin Mary of Nazareth
The First Moment of Christian Tradition Began in Mary's Heart (III)
Today her intercession has proved to be amazingly powerful...
 
When faith is strong it works wonders ( Mk 16:17 ).
 
Mary's heart is not a document, it's a source. "She stored up all these things in her heart"
(Lk 2:19 & 51), and that was the Word of God.
Excerpt from "Follow the Lamb" (Suivre l'Agneau)  Father Marie-Dominique Philippe Saint Paul Ed. 2005

I tried to reach Mount Calvary, and there I fainted away and fell into a kind of trance or ecstasy in which I seemed to see our Saviour on the cross and the good thief hanging near Him. I said to Christ, ‘Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom’, and he replied by bidding the thief come to my assistance. This he did, and raising me from the ground he bade me go to Christ. I ran to Him and He came down from His cross, saying to me, ‘Take this wood’ (meaning the cross) ‘into thy custody’. In obedience to Him, methought I laid it on my shoulders and carried it some way. I awoke soon after and have been free from pain ever since, nor is there any sign left of the ailments from which I formerly suffered.”

Loring B Rowell, Ph.D. Larry is a great gift to all of us for giving so much of himself to mankind -- his friends.  
 (206) 543-0987
APS Living History  January 27 1930

Dr. Rowell earned his Ph.D. in Physiology at the University of Minnesota in 1962. He joined the UW faculty in the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology from 1963 to 1970. He then received a joint appointment in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics and Medicine/Cardiology and has worked here until his retirement in 1997. He continues to lecture, write and review.
Roy Griak, R.I.P.  The Legend  1923-2015  Raised in Duluth, Minn., Griak came to the University of Minnesota after serving in the U.S. Army during World War II. He lettered in both cross country and track & field and graduated with a bachelor's degree in education in 1949 before adding a master's degree in 1950.
  Griak went on to teach at Nicolett High School and Mankato Public Schools before he began teaching and coaching at St. Louis Park High School in 1953.
   Griak returned to Minnesota in 1963 as head coach of the track & field and cross country programs, taking over for his former coach, Jim Kelly.
 He remained at his alma mater for the rest of his life, transitioning to an administrative role with the programs following his tenure as head coach. When he stepped down as head coach, the University of Minnesota honored him by renaming its annual cross country meet in his honor. One of the largest and most competitive meets in the nation, the Roy Griak Invitational will celebrate its 30th year in 2015.
   In addition to his three national champions and three Big Ten titles as a head coach, Griak guided three more Gophers to NCAA titles in his supporting role.
    In a testament to his coaching ability, Griak boasted a national champion in five different decades (Garry Bjorklund in 1971, Ron Backes in 1986, Martin Erickson in 1993, Vesa Rantanen in 1998, Adam Steele in 2003 and Luca Wieland in 2015).
    Griak was also on staff for nine Big Ten track & field championships for Minnesota as an administrator including indoor and outdoor conference title sweeps in 1998, 2009 and 2010.

Along with his success at the collegiate level, Griak served on coaching staffs for more than 10 U.S. international teams, most notably as head manager of the 1984 U.S. Olympic track & field team.
   He was inducted into the Drake Relays Coaches Hall of Fame in 1993, the University of Minnesota `M' Club Hall of Fame in 1996 and the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2001.

SUNDAY
0 Lord God omnipotent, I beseech Thee by the Precious Blood, which Thy divine Son Jesus shed in the Garden, deliver the souls in purgatory, and especially that one which is the most forsaken of all, and bring it into Thy glory, where it may praise and bless Thee for ever.  Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven;  give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from all evil; Amen. 
Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amoung women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus; Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners, now and forever; Amen.  
Eternal rest grant unto them oh Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon them; Amen.

WEDNESDAY
0 Lord God omnipotent, I beseech Thee by the Precious Blood of Thy divine Son Jesus that was shed in the streets of Jerusalem whilst He carried on His sacred shoulders the heavy burden of the Cross, deliver the souls in purgatory, and especially that one which is richest in merits in Thy sight, so that, having soon attained the high place in glory to which it is destined, it may praise Thee triumphantly and bless Thee for ever.  Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven;  
give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from all evil; Amen. 
Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amoung women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus;
Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, and forever; Amen.  
Eternal rest grant unto them oh Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon them; Amen.
I belive in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in his only Son our Lord Jesus Christ, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontious Pilate, was crucified died and was buried.  He descended amoung the dead; After three days He rose again from the dead, He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty from whence He will come again to judge the living and dead, and his Kingdom will have no end.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and The Son, through the Father and Son He is worshiped and glorified, and has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the communion of saints, one baptism for remission of sins,  the ressurection of the dead, and life everlating Amen.

O.F.=our Father; H.M. = Hail Mary; G.B. = Glory be to the FATHER and the SON and the HOLY GHOST amen.
OMJ = Oh my JESUS, forgive us our sins save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven especially those in most need of thy mercy; bring us to life everlasting, Amen. Sacred Heart of JESUS pray for us, St Jude hope of the helpless pray for us, St Jude worker of miracles pray for us.
 
Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
(Verse) Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.  
(Response) That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Rosary Prayer  (Verse) Let us pray, 
(Response) O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech Thee, that while meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
May the Divine assistance always remain with us and may the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace, Amen
