Behold the lamb of God



John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
He is the one of whom I said,
‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me
because he existed before me.’
I did not know him,
but the reason why I came baptizing with water
was that he might be made known to Israel.”
John testified further, saying,
“I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven
and remain upon him.
I did not know him,
but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me,
‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain,
he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”

 John 1: 29



Human Trafficking

Prayer for an End to Human Trafficking

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you across the world in prayer to pray for the abolishment of human trafficking in all its forms. Save the victims, help them to receive the proper guidance, counseling, shelter and healing that is needed for them to overcome this violent act, we humbly pray. Flood the hearts of those committing these acts, so they may come to know Your Grace. Thank you, Lord, for your angels here on earth who serve and protect these vulnerable peoples. Through the intercession of St. Josephine Bakhita, Patroness of charity and patience, bring us the spirit of wisdom and love. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, be our protector. Grant us the courage, strength, and ability to fight successfully to end the scourge of human trafficking. We ask this through,

Christ Our Lord. Amen. Hail Mary …

SAINT OF THE MONTH - St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

In November, in a spirit of thanksgiving, we are grateful for the work of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, known as "Mother Cabrini" (1850-1917), an Italian-American religious sister who founded a religious community that supported immigrants in the U.S. Born in what is now northern Italy, Cabrini became a religious sister in the 1870's, took the name "Xavier" to honor the Jesuit saint and patron of missionary service, and was asked to serve the people of the United States, in particular, the many immigrants who were arriving in the country at the time. She is the patron saint of immigrants.
