  • Sanctity Is for Everyone
    by Fr. Gary Caster on September 28, 2020 at 9:00 am

    St. Thérèse helped people understand that sanctity was not for a limited few, but for all the baptized. Her childlike confidence and abandonment to Jesus led her to offer up to the Lord the simple duties and obligations of her religious life. She believed that nothing was too little to give Jesus, and nothing done out of love for him was […]

  • Saint Wenceslaus

Wenceslaus was born in 907 near Prague, son of the Duke of Bohemia. His saintly grandmother, Ludmilla, raised him and sought to promote him as ruler of Bohemia in place of his mother, who favored the anti-Christian factions. Ludmilla was eventually murdered, but rival Christian forces enabled Wenceslaus to assume leadership of the government. His rule was marked by efforts toward unification within Bohemia, support of the Church, and peace-making negotiations with Germany, a policy which caused […]

    Lord,
    May this candle be a light for you to enlighten me in my difficulties.
    May it be a fire for you to burn out of me all pride, selfishness and impurity.
    May it be a flame for you to bring warmth into my heart, towards my family, my neighbors and all those who meet me.
    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.
    Help me to continue my prayer into everything I do this day. Amen.

  • 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.
