    Pray with Pope Francis

    Special intention of Pope Francis
    for month of May
    "Heavenly Father, during this month of May, we pray that throughout the world all women may be honored and respected. May their essential contribution to society be recongnized and highly esteemed. Father, we also ask that families and communities may pray the Rosary for evangelization and peace on every continent. Through the intercession of Mary, may we see the gospel spread."
    Discussing civility in the public square, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, D.C., reminds American Catholics that they are “citizens of two worlds,” the kingdom of God and of a great nation. The incivility displayed in this year’s presidential campaign season sometimes makes it hard to reconcile these two citizenships. But it’s precisely at this time that good stewards of God’s love and mercy must become engaged politically. Read more:

    Dutton Prayer


    Joseph Dutton was instrumental in assisting Fr. Damien of Molokai with the care of the patients afflicted with Hansen's disease. This prayer is for private devotion for the cause of canonization of Joseph Dutton. Send reports and information of favors received through his intercession to
    "Come, Holy Spirit, and visit your people in our great need. May Joseph Dutton, who lived in penitential solidarity with those yearning for a complete change of mind and heart in every time and place, intercede for us in our struggle, particularly for _________________. May his total submission to your purifying will in all things encourage us on our own way of conversion. May whatever virtue in him your Church deems heroic clear the way to sainthood for him, for the inspiration and consolation of many. Amen."
