  • "One of the proofs of a really close friendship is when you can’t say one person’s name without thinking of the other. Perpetua was a young Christian noblewoman and Felicity was a young Christian slave. The two were arrested for their belief in Christ, during the persecution of Emperor Septimius Severus: At this time, Perpetua was a new mother, and Felicity was eight months pregnant. Together, the two women helped each other through the heat, darkness, and brutality of the guards in the prison. Two days before their scheduled death, Felicity gave birth to her daughter in the prison, and the child was adopted by a Christian woman. These last days of the women were recorded by Perpetua, whose diary became one of the most famous accounts in the early Church of the suffering of the martyrs."
.

"Una de las formas más concisas de probar que una amistad es verdaderamente cercana es cuando no puedes pensar en el nombre de una persona sin pensar en la otra también. Perpetua era una joven Cristiana de la realeza y Felícitas una joven esclava Cristiana. Ambas fueron arrestadas por su fe en Cristo, durante la persecución del Rey Septimio Severo: Durante este tiempo Perpetua era una nueva madre, y Felícitas estaba en su octavo mes de gestación. Juntas, ambas se ayudaban la una a la otra del calor, la obscuridad y el maltrato brutal de los guardias de la prisión. Dos días antes de sus ejecuciones planeadas Felícitias dio a luz a su hija dentro de la prisión, y la bebé fue adoptada por una mujer Cristiana. Estos ultimos dias previos a su muerte fueron documentados por Perpetua en su diario, el cual se convirtió en una de las fuentes más famosas de la Iglesia joven sobre el sufrimiento de los mártires." #CatholicSaints #YoungSaints #PrayForUs #SantosCatolicos #JovenesSantas #RuegaPorNosotros 🙏😇 Copyright © 2016, Catholic News Service–United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Washington, DC.

Today's saint - St. John of Capistrano, pray for us!⁣⠀⁠
⁠
Imagine being born in the 14th century. One-third of the population and nearly 40 percent of the clergy were wiped out by the bubonic plague. The Western Schism split the Church with two or three claimants to the Holy See at one time. England and France were at war. The city-states of Italy were constantly in conflict. No wonder that gloom dominated the spirit of the culture and the times.⁠
⁠
John Capistrano was born in 1386. His education was thorough. His talents and success were great. When he was 26 he was made governor of Perugia. Imprisoned after a battle against the Malatesta's, he resolved to change his way of life completely. At the age of 30, he entered the Franciscan novitiate and was ordained a priest four years later.⁠
⁠
John’s preaching attracted great throngs at a time of religious apathy and confusion. He and 12 Franciscan brethren were received in the countries of central Europe as angels of God. They were instrumental in reviving a dying faith and devotion.⁠
⁠
The Franciscan Order itself was in turmoil over the interpretation and observance of the Rule of St. Francis. Through John’s tireless efforts and his expertise in law, the heretical Fraticelli were suppressed and the “Spirituals” were freed from interference in their stricter observance.⁠
⁠
John of Capistrano helped bring about a brief reunion with the Greek and Armenian Churches.⁠
⁠
When the Turks captured Constantinople in 1453, John was commissioned to preach a crusade for the defense of Europe. Gaining little response in Bavaria and Austria, he decided to concentrate his efforts in Hungary. He led the army to Belgrade. Under the great General John Hunyadi, they gained an overwhelming victory, and the siege of Belgrade was lifted. Worn out by his superhuman efforts, Capistrano was easy prey to an infection after the battle. He died on October 23, 1456.⁠

  • So many times I have wished that God would just hurry up. I've been looking at my life as though I'm merely a substitute player on the bench, waiting for someone to injure themselves so I get my turn.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But right now, I'm so grateful to him for taking his sweet time, for knowing how big leaps and bounds terrify me. It's like driving towards the ocean and getting glimpses of it before being greeted with the entire breathtakingly beautiful view.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Often we need to be prepared for something wonderful before it happens. God does so much for us in the waiting. He's preparing so many things we can't see.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So here I am, finally being grateful that the dance the Lord is leading me in is a slow one. It's a slow dance because if we went right into a waltz or a foxtrot, my feet would get muddled and confuse the steps. And it's a slow dance because this way he gets to hold me close and whisper gently to me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm so grateful he always knows me better than I know myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Happy Memorial of St. John Capistrano! We recently went to the California mission founded by St. Junipero Serra in honor of this saint and it was beautiful. Next time you're in Southern California, it's definitely worth a stop.

St. John was a gifted preacher and evangelist across much of Europe. St. Junipero Serra was a central player in spreading the Gospel across the southwest United States.

Our visit reminded me how grateful I am for missionaries who have spread the faith. Without them, I wouldn't know the hope I've found in Jesus.

It also made me think about the particular evangelization I'm called to in my daily life. As Saint Paul said, "Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel" (1 Corinthians 9:16). I pray that many people will come to eternal life through your and my witness of life.

Praying for all of you and whoever God asks you to share with today. St. John Capistrano, pray for us!

  • St John Capistrano was a Franciscan priest whose life included a political career, extensive missionary journeys, efforts to reunite separated Eastern Christians with Rome and a military leadership career. He is the patron of military chaplains and was praised by St. John Paul II in a 2002 general audience for his “glorious evangelical witness,” as a priest who “gave himself with great generosity for the salvation of souls.” St John Capistrano, pray for us.

  • By the age of 21, all of his immediate family members had died. The Nazis invaded his home country of Poland and dragged his friends away to concentration camps. He joined an underground seminary, even though it was punishable by imprisonment and death. Later on he served faithfully as a priest, bishop, and cardinal despite the Communist rule that tried to stifle religious freedom in his country with atheistic ideology. He helped to topple Communism in all of Eastern Europe when he invoked the Holy Spirit upon his people at an outdoor Mass, when he returned as Pope. An assassin was later sent to murder him but he miraculously survived after being shot point blank. He later visited that man in prison and forgave him. He gave hope to an entire generation of believers and non believers alike, traveling to 129 countries and preaching the good news of salvation. There’s volumes more about what could be said in regards to his life and legacy, but his witness to hope continues to encourage me as I strive to follow Jesus towards our eternal homeland. Happy Feast Day to this legend, this hero, this model of discipleship: St. John Paul II. I love you, miss you, and ask for your prayers.

“There is no evil to be faced that Christ does not face with us. There is no enemy that Christ has not already conquered. There is no cross to bear that Christ has not already born for us, and does not now bear with us... Do not be afraid!”

👥Saint Crispin and Saint Crispian 🙏 for us.
🎉Feast day October 25
🗓3rd Century AD
📍Born in Rome, Italy 🇮🇹
😇Patron Saints of:
👞cobblers, shoemakers
🧤glove makers
〰️lace makers, lace workers
👜leather workers
🐎saddle makers, saddlers
🐂tanners
➿weavers
👇🏼
•
👑Brothers and members of the imperial Roman nobility. Together they evangelized Gaul in the middle 3rd century.
🇫🇷They worked from Soissons, France where they preached in the streets by day, made shoes by night. They earned enough by their trade to support themselves and also to aid the poor. Their charity, piety, and contempt of material things impressed the locals, and many converted in the years of their ministry.
😵😵Their success attracted the ire of Rictus Varus, governor of Belgic Gaul, who had them tortured and thrown into the river with millstones around their necks. Though they survived, they were beheaded by the Emperor c. 285-286.
⛪️A great church was built at Soissons in the 6th century in their honor.
👞👢Because of his association with shoes, shoe-making, etc. a shoeshine kit is called a "Saint-Crispin"; an awl is "Saint Crispin's lance"; and if your shoes are too tight, you are "in Saint Crispin's prison."

  • ”Martin Luther...broke his vows.  Pulled a nun out of the cloister.  Took her as his wife and founded Protestantism.  Henry VIII, king of England, was weary of his ...Catherine of Aragon, and wanted Anne Boleyn...; after that he changed wives as though they were gloves, and so the depraved monarch founded the Anglican church.... Those are the origins of defection from Christ’s Church!... Investigate the Truth...Come to know the True religion of Christ and live in accordance with it. ”  Rycerz Niepokalanej 5(1925). pp 264-265  Rycerz Niepokalanej was a Polish Catholic magazine founded by Maximillian Kolbe.  He had a way of putting things in simple terms.  For the Protestants, Truth hurts.  #stmaximiliankolbe #catholicsaints #catholic #catholicchurch #catholico #catholica #traditiancatholica #traditionalcatholic #traditionalcatholicism #romancatholic #romancatholicchurch

  • Sharing this exquisite sketch done by our very own Patrick Cross (‘14) @pattc096 in honor of the happy feast of Pope St. John Paul II today. 😇
Did you know that this beloved saint blessed the architectural plans for Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel on the California campus? ⛪️
When you enter the chapel through the main doors, you’ll find John Paul’s papal crest at your feet. 
Pope St. John Paul II, pray for us! 🙏

  • Mary Magdalene … did not do what you and I would do. She did not pour out the precious perfume drop by drop as if to indicate by the slowness of the giving the generosity of the gift. She broke the vessel and gave everything, for love knows no limits. Immediately the house was filled with perfume. It was almost as if, after the death of that perfume and the breaking of the bottle, there was a resurrection. Broken things are precious. We eat broken bread because we share in the death of our Lord and his broken life. Broken flowers give perfume. Broken incense is used in adoration. A broken ship saved Paul and many other passengers on the way to Rome. Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them. - Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
