Saint of the day: ST. MARTIN OF TOURS. -  Bishop of Tours whose shrine became a famous stopping-point for pilgrims on the road to Santiago de Compostela.

Word of the Day:

Hold your tongue! Don't be childish, the caricature of a child: telltale, mischief-maker, little sneak! With your stories and tales you have chilled the glow of charity: you couldn't have done more harm, and if by any chance that wagging tongue of yours has shaken the walls of other people's perseverance, your own perseverance ceases to be a grace from God, for it has become a treacherous instrument of the enemy.

Saint of the day: STS. SIMON and JUDE. - Apostles who were martyred in Persia.

Word of the Day:


I don't like your euphemistic habit of calling cowardice prudence.

Saint of the day: ST. URSULA, Virgin and Martyr. - who was martyred along with thousands of other virgins in Cologne, Germany by pagan Huns. Many legends surrounding these virgins and Ursula have cropped up and a church was built in their honor.

Word of the Day:

Marriage is for the soldiers and not for the General Staff of Christ's army. For, whereas food is a necessity for each individual, procreation is a necessity for the species only, not for the individual.

Longing for children? Children, many children, and a lasting trail of light we shall leave behind us if we sacrifice the selfishness of the flesh.

Jesus preaches in the synagogue in his hometown, yet the members of the church respond to his teaching with hubris. With someirony, the people take note of both the wisdom and might deeds of Jesus; but they find it difficult to accept that a carpenter's son might be an instrument of the Lor'd divine plan - Roland's Gospel Commentary.

Sunday Gospel Video: June 24, 2012 (The Birth of St. John the Baptist Solemnity)


Nativity of St. John the Baptist is a Christian feast day celebrating the birth of John the Baptist, a prophet who foretold the coming of the Messiah in the person of Jesus and who baptized Jesus.










The Church observes the birth of John as in some way sacred; and you will not find any other of the great men of old whose birth we celebrate officially.

John challenges us Christians to the fundamental attitude of Christianity—total dependence on the Father, in Christ.
