A good reminder to walk with Jesus wherever you go!
Are you a hiker? Like long walks?
One of the impacts of a pilgrimage to the holy land is the concrete sense of the journeys of Jesus, especially when in the Galilee region.
“When walking, think of Jesus Christ going to Samaria and Calvary.”
- St Francis Borgia SJ, whose feast is today. #walkwithjesus ... See MoreSee Less

Trust God’s farsighted vision
If you ever doubt what God has called you to do, then Mother Theodore Guerin is a saint for you. When this French sister immigrated, with hesitation, to Indiana in 1840, she opened what would become Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, the first chartered school of higher education for women in the state. Guerin wrote, “It is astonishing that this remote solitude has been chosen for a novitiate and especially for an academy. All appearances are against it.” It became the first women's college to offer journalism courses and degree work in secondary education, and was a pioneer in distance education, offering independent study in 1973 (talk about prescient!). Trust God’s vision and your role in plans longer-term than anyone can imagine.
TODAY'S READINGS: Galatians 1:6-12; Luke 10:25-37. “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind.”

“For Francis and Clare, prayer and holy communion are to lead to a renewal of the “Incarnation;” God is to “take on flesh” anew in one’s life through the action of the Holy Spirit, and the birth of God in one’s life should shine upon others, as the sun unto the world”
~ Franciscan Prayer
This was the inspiration for the Tabernacle in the St Francis Chapel. ... See MoreSee Less

For he commands his angels with regard to you,
to guard you wherever you go.
With their hands they shall support you,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
Anciently, all angels were celebrated together on the feast of St Michael. A separate feast of the Guardian Angels began in Valencia in 1411. At the reform of the Breviary in the 16th century it was included among the local feasts, and it was raised to the status of a feast in the General Calendar in 1608, placed on the first free day after the feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.
One of the benefits of this feast is that it reminds us that God cares for us each, individually. We all know this in theory, but it is easy – in times of depression or temptation – to convince ourselves that we are too small to matter, for good or ill. Let us use this feast to remind ourselves that each of us has an angel of our very own looking after us. At times we must all be a bit of a bore and a burden to them. May we one day be a cause of rejoicing for them also.
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love entrusts me here, Ever this day, be at my side,
To light and guard, Rule and guide. ... See MoreSee Less
