  • God Will Always Take Us Back
    by Barbara Hosbach on June 24, 2019 at 9:00 am

    Hosea’s experience is a message of hope. It reassures us that God will always take us back when we turn to him. When we do, he will see us through any consequences we may have brought on ourselves by our own poor choices. More than that, Hosea’s story confirms that suffering—painful though it may be—is not without purpose. […]

    Image: St. John the Baptist | Alessandro Rosi The Nativity of Saint John the Baptist Saint of the Day for June 24 https://www.franciscanmedia.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/SODJun24.mp3  Saint John the Baptist’s Story Jesus called John the greatest of all those who had preceded him: “I tell you, among those born of women, no one is greater than John….” But John would have agreed completely with what Jesus added: “[Y]et the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he” (Luke 7:28). John spent his time in the desert, an ascetic. He began to announce the coming of the Kingdom, and to call everyone to a fundamental reformation of life. His purpose was to prepare the way for Jesus. His baptism, he said, was for repentance. But one would come who would baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire. John was not worthy even to untie his sandals. His attitude toward Jesus was: “He must increase; I must decrease” (John 3:30). John was […]

    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.
