  • Jesus Conquers Death
    by Franciscan Media on February 21, 2018 at 10:30 am

    In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus dies before he dies, and thereby readies himself for what awaits him. The next day, when Pilate threatens him with death, Jesus stands in a freedom and courage that can be understood only if we understand what happened to him in the garden. When Pilate says to him: “Don’t you know that I have power […]

It was the ordinary thing for him to have a poor person or two with him at table and he liked to minister personally to their needs. Peter escaped poverty and the neglect of his own brother when his other brother, who was archpriest of Ravenna, took him under his wing. His brother sent him to good schools and Peter became a professor. Already in those days, Peter was very strict with himself. He wore a hair shirt under his clothes, fasted rigorously and spent many hours in prayer. Soon, he decided to leave his teaching and give himself […]

    Lord,
    May this candle be a light for you to enlighten me in my difficulties.

    Through the prayers of Mary Virgin and Mother, I place in your care those I came to pray for, especially_____.
    I cannot stay long with you in this church. In leaving this candle, I wish to give to you something of myself.

  • A gift of your securities, including stocks or mutual funds, is an easy way to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets. Contributions are deductible for tax purposes. There are no transaction fees or other costs and the full value of the sold securities benefits the parish, school or other Catholic charity you select.
    More importantly, the question you may want to consider is this: Have I been blessed with many gifts and am I inspired by Gospel teaching and my Catholic values that charitable giving is a profound and joy-inspiring expression of love and gratitude? How can I live out my Catholic values and put them into action for the greater good of the community? Your stock contribution will help you live out your Catholic values and benefit your parish or school at the same time.
    For more information on making a gift please visit our diocesan website at SDCatholic.organd click on Giving - Stock Donations at the top of the website. Or, you may contact the Office for Stewardship, Manny Aguilar, at 858.490.8294 or call Merrill Lynch, the Diocese's broker, at 800.844.0720.
