As a Catholic Community we gather together. Please join us this week as we celebrate the Holy Triduum.

 

Prayer of the Week

Loving God, this week I will commit to one of these resolutions from Pax Christi.
I will strive for peace within myself.
I will seek to be a peacemaker in my daily life.
I will accept suffering rather than afflict it.
I will refuse to retaliate in the face of provocation and violence.
I will persevere in nonviolence of tongue and heart.
I will live simply, so I do not deprive others of the means to live
I will actively work to abolish war and the cause of war from my own heart and from the face of the earth.

 

Saint of the Day – Saint Teresa of Los Andes

One needn’t live a long life to leave a deep imprint. Teresa of Los Andes is proof of that.

As a young girl growing up in the early 1900’s in Santiago, Chile, Juana Fernandez read an autobiography of a French-born saint—Thérèse, popularly known as the Little Flower. The experience deepened her desire to serve God and clarified the path she would follow. At age 19 Juana became a Carmelite nun, taking the name of Teresa.

The convent offered the simple lifestyle Teresa desired and the joy of living in a community of women completely devoted to God. She focused her days on prayer and sacrifice. “I am God’s,” she wrote in her diary. “He created me and is my beginning and my end.”

Toward the end of her short life, Teresa began an apostolate of letter-writing, sharing her thoughts on the spiritual life with many people. At age 20 she contracted typhus and quickly took her final vows. She died a short time later, during Holy Week.

Known as the “Flower of the Andes,” Teresa remains popular with the estimated 100,000 pilgrims who visit her shrine in Los Andes each year. Canonized in 1993 by Pope John Paul II, she is Chile’s first saint.
