THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK FROM ST. AUGUSTINE SPIRITUALITY CENTER

March 1-7, 2015

In St. Paul’s Letter to Romans 8:31-34 this Sunday it assures us that “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him?”  What a comfort that in spite of all our sufferings and difficulties, God offers us the gift of his Son’s presence and intercession.  If our belief, love and trust are strong, we can hope for a myriad of surprising blessings. “God is good; God is great.”

One way to grow in our spiritual life, is to take just one little nugget from the Scripture readings and hold it close to our heart during the week.

This week we celebrate the wonderful life and legacy of Mother Katherine Drexel, the second American
born canonized by the Church in 2000.  St. Katherine was born in Philadelphia, PA and was an heiress, philanthropist, religious sister, educator and foundress of the Blessed Sacrament Sisters.  She dedicated her fortune and life to the Native Americans and Afro-Americans. 

St. Casimir was a crown prince of Poland.  He was known for his charity and justice. His great love for the Eucharist prompted others to follow his example.

Two courageous mothers of the third century, Perpetua and Felicity, held strongly to their faith and were beheaded in the Roman arena.  One of these women was a noble woman of Carthage in North Africa and the other was a slave woman.   Both were equal in their Christian faith and stood side by side in martyrdom.
