  • Jesus Is Constant
    by Msgr. Peter J. Vaghi on April 22, 2019 at 9:00 am

    At this time in history, you and I now are present. We, like the apostles, are unreliable and weak and afraid. We are inconstant in our devotion to our Lord. We deny him, we betray him. But Jesus is I Am. He is constant. Jesus sits in the center of our hearts with arms outstretched. He died on the cross out of love for us. He is continually […]

• Saint of the Day
  • Saint George

    Image: Saint George and the Dragon | Gustave MoreauSaint George Saint of the Day for April 23 (c. 280 – April 23, 303) https://www.franciscanmedia.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/SODApr23.mp3  Saint George’s Story Saint George is the object of a vast amount of imagination. There is every reason to believe that he was a real martyr who suffered at Lydda in Palestine, probably before the time of Constantine. The Church adheres to his memory, but not to the legends surrounding his life. That he was willing to pay the supreme price to follow Christ is what the Church believes. And it is enough. The story of George’s slaying the dragon, rescuing the king’s daughter, and converting Libya is a 12th-century Italian fable. George was a favorite patron saint of crusaders, as well as of Eastern soldiers in earlier times. He is a patron saint of England, Portugal, Germany, Aragon, Catalonia, Genoa, and Venice.

    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.
