As you place your donation in the poor box please say a prayer for the poor and forgotten in our parish. Furniture donations are also welcome. Please call 822-3132 for details. Have you considered answering the call to help the poor by joining the Society of St. Vincent de Paul? Call the parish center for information at 676-0676.

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: July 31 Where does true wealth lie? In his Spiritual Exercises, Saint Ignatius writes, “If I have nothing, my only possession is Christ . . . and this is to be really true to myself—the humility of a person whose whole reality and value is grounded in being created and redeemed in Christ.” The call of a Christian is to be spiritually secure, not taking stock in what the world gives, but in the promises of Christ. That is where true wealth lies: in being fully given to Christ, so that nothing can come between you and the love of God.

Monday, August 1 St. Alphonsus Liguori, bishop, Doctor of the church What’s your gift to the world? Vincent Van Gogh said, “The best way to know God is to love many things.” Alphonsus Liguori embodied this wisdom, as a prolific spiritual author as well as an accomplished musician, poet, and painter. With more than 100 works on spirituality to his name, his writings have been translated into dozens of languages and thousands of editions, making him one of the most widely read Catholic authors of all time. When we discover our gifts and use them to serve God, our works multiply. What are your gifts and how will you put them in service to the world? Tuesday, August 2 St. Peter Julian Eymard, priest In the world of sculpture, the name Rodin ranks right up there with Michelangelo. The great French sculptor—creator of The Thinker and many other masterpieces—was a renowned artist by 1900, but it might never have been that way. In 1862, Rodin’s beloved sister died and he felt he had let her down. Deeply anguished and guilt ridden, he sought refuge by joining a Catholic order, the Congregation of the Blessed Eucharist. Saint Peter Julian Eymard, founder and head of the congregation, sensing that Rodin was running from his pain and wasn’t really suited to religious life, encouraged him to continue with his sculpture. Rodin returned to work and the rest is history. God blesses each of us with gifts. Serve God by developing yours in the service of humanity. Wednesday, August 3 When you pass a person begging on a street corner, what goes through your mind? Is there a quick calculation going on as to their worthiness? Some variation on: “He looks like he could be working”; “Why is she smoking her money away if she is

broke?”; “If I give him something, he’s only going 5 to spend it on booze.” It’s easy to slip into a “worthiness calculation,” but what should give us pause is the awareness of the ways we also fall short of the ideal. There is wisdom in the cliche “There but for the grace of God . . . .” Remember it the next time someone asks for assistance. Thursday, August 4 St. John Vianney, priest A good pastor can transform a parish. This was certainly true of the small rural parish led by Saint John Vianney. Known as the “world’s pastor,” Vianney led the people of Ars, France in the early 1800s by the example of his faith and life. Vianney attracted more than 100,000 pilgrims from throughout Europe and was remarkably present to all whom he encountered. He drew others into God’s love through his own love, modeling the true role of a pastor—to be a reflection of Christ. In doing so, he affected not only his parish but the whole church. Remember the patron saint of parish priests in your prayers today. Friday, August 5 Dedication of the Basilica of Mary Major It may seem to you that we are honoring a church building on this feast of the Basilica of Mary Major, but in truth the church honors not a building, but Mary the mother of God on this feast. This basilica has remained a beacon of strength and beauty that has honored Mary since the fourth century. It reminds us that Mary intercedes on our behalf and is a perfect model of courage and faithfulness for each of us to imitate. But you don’t have to travel to Rome to meditate on patron saints. Read about the patron of your parish community and ask for that saint’s assistance. Saturday, August 6 Transfiguration of the Lord Let faith take you to the next level Why do people climb mountains? Is it the view? The rarefied air that refreshes? The challenge? All of that may be true but in biblical times, people also climbed a lot of mountains because they were in the way! Mountains dot the landscape in biblical regions. If you want to appreciate the power of the many transformational events in the Bible that happened to take place on mountains, climb one yourself, or at least visit the Rockies, Appalachia, or some other higher-elevation destination. Perhaps you, too, will be transformed! ©2015 by TrueQuest Communications. All rights reserved. Reprinted with permission from
