Archangels


Archangels Gabriel, Michael and Raphael
Feast Day September 29

St. Michael (meaning 'Who is like God') was the archangel who fought against Satan and all his evil angels, defending all the friends of God. He is the protector of all humanity from the snares of the devil. 

St. Gabriel (meaning 'Strength of God') announced to Zachariah the forthcoming birth of John the Baptist, and to Mary, the birth of Jesus. His greeting to the Virgin, "Hail, full of grace," is one of the most familiar and frequent prayers of the Christian people. 

St. Raphael (meaning 'Medicine of God') was the archangel who took care of Tobias on his journey.

Lazarus & The Rich Man




26th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Gospel Reading: Luke 16:19-31

Jesus said to the Pharisees: ‘There was a rich man who used to dress in purple and fine linen and feast magnificently every day. And at his gate there lay a poor man called Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to fill himself with the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even came and licked his sores. Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried.
  
‘In his torment in Hades he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off with Lazarus in his bosom. So he cried out, “Father Abraham, pity me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in agony in these flames.” “My son,” Abraham replied “remember that during your life good things came your way, just as bad things came the way of Lazarus. Now he is being comforted here while you are in agony. But that is not all: between us and you a great gulf has been fixed, to stop anyone, if he wanted to, crossing from our side to yours, and to stop any crossing from your side to ours.”
  
‘The rich man replied, “Father, I beg you then to send Lazarus to my father’s house, since I have five brothers, to give them warning so that they do not come to this place of torment too.” “They have Moses and the prophets,” said Abraham “let them listen to them.” “Ah no, father Abraham,” said the rich man “but if someone comes to them from the dead, they will repent.” Then Abraham said to him, “If they will not listen either to Moses or to the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone should rise from the dead.”’

Let’s Journey With St. Thérèse!

Let’s Journey With St. Thérèse! 
It's her feast day next week on October 1st!


St. Thérèse of Lisieux was a young Carmelite nun in France whose writings contain such profound spiritual wisdom that she is declared a Doctor of the Church. Her ‘Little Way’ helps draw us closer to God through small things. She calls herself a little flower of God... and so are all of us! By entering into the heart and mind of St. Thérèse, we learn to respond to God and His Presence, in the concrete situations of our lives. 

Now you can journey with St. Thérèse in a delightfully illustrated journal: The Happy Saints ‘Let’s Pray With St. Thérèse’ eBook.


This printable prayer PDF journal features the ‘Little Way’ of St. Thérèse in 17 simple chapters, each with a theme based on her sayings and accompanied by reflection passages, prayer cards, question-answer sheets and colorful cartoon artworks. It uses St. Thérèse’s wisdom to encourage the young and young-at-heart to explore their unique relationship with God.  


Ideal for ages 5 to 10, but great for everyone!
