Elementary​:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

This past Saturday we celebrated Regina's Holy Rosary Cathedral which was built in 1913. A Cathedral is the bishop's home church. At Holy Rosary we gather with Archbishop Don, all the priests and deacons and people of God to mark big events in our archdiocese as well as celebrate weekly masses. It is a place of welcome for all.  Yet there are places in the world that do not welcome all people.

Last Saturday we remembered St. Andrew Dung-Lac, and his companions who died in Vietnam for their faith in Jesus. We are thankful to them all for sharing Jesus in Vietnam.

Today let us thank God for the gift of peace and welcome:

God, Creator of the World,

Please help us to love one another.

Make nations friendly with other nations.

Help all of us love one another

like brothers and sisters.

Help us to do our part,

to bring peace in the world and

happiness to all people.

Amen.

We journey into our day with the holy martyrs in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of

the Holy Spirit. Amen.​


High School:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Last Saturday we celebrate the Dedication of our local Holy Rosary Cathedral built in 1913. A Cathedral is the bishop's home church in a diocese. It is also the mother church of the diocese where all of us faithful gather as the greater faith community of the Archdiocese. It is a place of welcome for saints and sinners alike.

On Saturday we also remembered the courageous members of our global church - St. Andrew Dung-Lac, and his companions who were martyred in Vietnam for their faith in Jesus. We are thankful for them and for all those courageous and "normal" people who have taken Jesus into places where his love is not fully known or understood. Because of their faith sacrifices we can live out the many gifts of our faith without fear.

Every day is a good day to give thanks for our blessings and for the saints whose examples give us the bravery we need to live out our faith.

We are so grateful to God for the many gifts that have been given to each one of us.

Today let us thank God for the gift of compassion:

God of Justice, help us to always see those around us

with loving and compassionate eyes.

If they need us, help us to reach out to them.

May we always work toward breaking down the barriers to love

that make people feel isolated and alone.

Help us develop the wisdom to know that every little bit of kindness and

care that we show to each other will make a difference and will always

demonstrate our love for you.

We make this prayer in your name, Jesus. Amen.

We journey into our day with the holy martyrs in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of

the Holy Spirit. Amen.
