Our prayers to the victims and families of the immense tragedy in Charleston, South Carolina today. May the Holy Spirit help us to be always compassionate to one another.
Today is the #feastday of Our Lady of Fatima. On this day in 1917 the Blessed Virgin Mary first appeared to three shepherd children (Francisco, Jacinta, and Lucia) in Fatima, Portugal. In these apparitions, the Virgin Mary identified herself as Our Lady of the Rosary.

She taught the children to recite the #rosary daily, to pray assiduously for the conversion of sinners, to make small sacrifices as penance in reparation for sin, and to honor her Immaculate Heart. After investigation, the apparition at #Fatima was declared worthy of belief by the Catholic Church. The message of Fatima still applies to us today, nearly 100 years later. In the words of Our Lady to the children, "Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners; for many souls go to hell, because there are none to sacrifice themselves and pray for them."

It was after this apparition that the Fatima prayer taught to the children was added to the end of each decade of the Holy Rosary: "Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy." Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

Lord Jesus, Who went about doing good and healing all, we ask You to bless all people who are injured, sick or homeless due to this earthquake. O Jesus, You suffered and died for us; You understand suffering. Give them strength in body, courage in spirit, and patience in pain. Calm their fears; increase their trust. And bless all who hasten to their aid. Amen.
Rest in peace, Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop Emeritus of Chicago

One of the many Eucharistic miracles worldwide happened in Sokółka, Poland in 2008. From an investigative report: '"On 7 January 2009 the sample from the Host has been taken and examined independently by two professionals in pathomorphology of Medical University in Bialystok. They have issued a common statement as follows: "the sample sent to assess (…) in our opinion (prof. Maria Sobaniec-Lotowska and prof. Stanislaw Sulkowski) looks like the myocardial tissue (heart tissue), at least of all the tissues of living organisms it most resembles."'

Friendly reminder that our diocese always celebrates Ascension Day on the seventh Sunday of Easter. So we will honor this feast this coming Sunday, May 17.
Don't forget to say your heartfelt thanks and hugs to your mom this Mother's Day! They need to know your love for them.

Thank you, moms, for all you do for us. May the Lord - with the intercession of Mother Mary - grant you strength, peace, and grace. And may He shower you with many blessings!  #HappyMothersDay  
For years, Walt and Annie struggled with infertility, but in a single moment they realized that God was writing a beautiful story for them that was over 20 years in the making.

[Psalm 139:13-16] "You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb...Your eyes saw me unformed; in your book all are written down; my days were shaped, before one came to be."
When Jesus spoke of love, "he speaks to us of concrete things: feed the hungry, visit the sick," and more, the pope said. "When there isn't this concreteness, one can be living a Christianity of illusion because the person doesn't really understand the core of Jesus' message," he said.
