St. Beatus, St. Gibrian, St.Agostino, pray for us!

St. Tressan, St. Helan, St. Germanus, St. Abran, St. Petran, St. Franca, St. Promptia, and St. Possenna pray for us!

So many saints!

I hear that shepherding is becoming popular again in some places.

I hope more and more people realize that we are meant to live simpler lives.

This world with so much bureaucracy and complication.. it is not good for us to live so separated from the more natural lives we're made for..

Very true. The modern world has become too high-tech.

Saint Alphius of Lentini
Martyr.

Alphius was born in Vaste, Italy.
According to legend, Alphius, together with his brothers, Philadelphus and Cyrinus as well as their sister Benedicta and several companions, were arrested during Decius persecutions of Christians. They were taken to Rome and tortured. They were then taken to Pozzuoli near modern Naples. One of the Christians, Onesimus, was executed here. The brothers went on to Sicily where they were martyred at Lentini.
Alphius, twenty two, had his tongue torn from his mouth.
Philadelphus, twenty one, was burned to death and Cyrinus, nineteen, was boiled to death. No details of execution are given for the sister, Benedicta.
They were martyred in 251

Saint Ignatius of Laconi
He is also called Francis Ignatius Peis. He was born on17 December 1701 at Laconi, Sardinia. He was the second of nine children of poor parents. As a child, he reportedly displayed remarkable devotion; waiting eagerly and in prayer at the door of a local church before dawn. He joined the Franciscans as a lay brother in 1722 at Buoncammino.
He served at several monasteries and then spent 15 years as a weaver at the Capuchin monastery at Cagliari. In 1741, he was sent out from Saint Anthony’s at Buoncammino to beg and for the remaining forty years of his life, spent his days seeking alms. He became famous for his holiness and concern for his fellow men especially the sick and the poor. Reportedly performed miracles and cures.
He died on 11 May 1781.
He was canonized on 21 October 1951 by Pope Pius XII.

What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.

Saint Ignatius,
Pray for us!

St. Ignatius pray for us! What a priceless gift from God, a devout childhood.

It is also St. Nereus of Terracin's day. I read he was "a soldier in the imperial Roman army, and a member of the Praetorian Guard. Convert to Christianity, baptized by Saint Peter the Apostle. Exiled for his faith, he suffered with Saint Flavia Domitilla, and was martyred with his brother Saint Achilleus." (P.S.I.)

St. Peter, St. Nereus, St. Achileus, St. Flavia, pray for us!

Dominic de la Calzada
Also known as Dominic of the Causeway.
Hermit.

Dominic was a Basque, born in Biscay, Spain. He tried severally to join the Benedictines at Valvanera, but was unsuccessful. He ended up living as a hermit at Rioja and became a follower of Saint Gregory of Ostia. When Gregory died, Dominic became a hermit in a forest near La Calzada, on the road to Compostela, the famed shrine in Spain. He devoted his time to creating a causeway for pilgrim travelers. He built a highway, a bridge and a hospice to make the path of the pilgrims a little less difficult. When he died in 1109, many miracles were reported at his tomb. The siteof his hermitage became a shrine.

Martyrs of Alexandria
In 372 in Alexandria, Egypt, Arian Adherents attacked Saint Athanasius for his opposition to the Arian heresy. A group of Catholic Christians were martyred in the church of Theonas, a suburb of Alexandria. They are the ones remember today. Their names have not come down to us.
They were canonized Pre-Congragation.

It is Mother's Day today.
In John 19: 26-27, we learn that:
“When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold your son.’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold your mother’”.
With these words, Jesus Made His own Mother, Mary, our Spiritual Mother
We turn  therefore to you for protection, holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs. Save us from every danger, glorious and blessed Virgin.
Amen!
