St. Anthony's Day Rosary

      Please join us for the Rosary at 6:00 pm Wed., June 13th at our Grotto. This is a wonderful way to honor Saint Anthony, our patron saint of lost and stolen articles. He was a powerful Franciscan preacher and teacher. He’s typically portrayed holding the child Jesus—or a lily—or a book— or all three—in his arms. Many people give alms to St. Anthony Bread in thanksgiving to God for blessings received through the prayers of St. Anthony.

Pondering Silence

      How do we acquire silence within when everything around us is anything but silent? We find silence by surrendering the secret areas in our life we have held on to because we do not want to let go. However, God knows all about these secret areas of sin. He is simply waiting for us to realize He is waiting. Silence is not easy, it is a desired practice that allows us to accomplish our goal of sitting in silence listening to the voice of God, instead of asking Him to do things for us. We learn compassion, wisdom and knowledge as we grow in silent time with Him.
