Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:
He gave them bread from heaven to eat."
So Jesus said to them,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven;
my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 
For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven
and gives life to the world."

So they said to him,
"Sir, give us this bread always." 
Jesus said to them,
"I am the bread of life;
whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst."

Mark 5: 21-34

Please Pray for Our Priests

"As a gift from God, every human life is sacred from conception to natural death. The life and dignity of every person must be respected and protected at every stage and in every condition. The right to life is the first and most fundamental principle of human rights that leads Catholics to actively work for a world of greater respect for human life and greater commitment to justice and peace."


                 United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

"Together with a culture of work, there must be a culture of leisure as gratification.  To put it another way: people who work must take time to relax, to be with their families, to enjoy themselves, read, listen to music, play a sport."

Prayer for Our Priests


God,

You have constituted Your only begotten Son supreme

and eternal Priest

for the glory of your majesty

and the salvation of mankind:

grant that those whom He has chosen

as ministers and dispensers

of His mysteries may be

found faithful in fulfilling

the ministry they have received.

Today we pray especially for (name).

Teach, lead and guide him always.

Correct, enlighten and

expand his thoughts and behavior.

Possess his soul;

take over his entire personality and life.

Let him live in you and

keep him in this intimate union always.

We ask this through Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,

Amen.

Dates to remember-

I am the Bread of Life . . .

God blesses us with shepherds to lead us closer to Him.  We are grateful to God for this kindness.  Our priests work day after day to fulfill their vocation as the "hands and feet of Christ" in this world.  Their work requires our support.  One of the best ways to thank God for this blessing is to pray each day for our priests.  Below, you will find a prayer written for just this purpose and a calendar outline a priest to pray for each day.  Please join us in in our effort to express our thanksgiving to God for the gift of His shepherds!

August 5, 2018-  

When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there,
they themselves got into boats
and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. 
And when they found him across the sea they said to him,
"Rabbi, when did you get here?" 
Jesus answered them and said,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
you are looking for me not because you saw signs
but because you ate the loaves and were filled. 
Do not work for food that perishes
but for the food that endures for eternal life,
which the Son of Man will give you. 
For on him the Father, God, has set his seal." 
So they said to him,
"What can we do to accomplish the works of God?" 
Jesus answered and said to them,
"This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent." 
So they said to him,
"What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? 
What can you do?
