My favorite saint is St. Joseph. Besides the fact it’s my name, when I was out of work over 5 years I would pray to St. Joseph the worker, and I believe that’s what brought me to where I am today. Our Lady of Victory is by far the best place I have ever worked. I tell everyone that this the best place to be, how lucky can you be to work at a beautiful Basilica like this everyday. Also we know some day Father Baker will become a Saint, something here we all ready know should be true.

October 31 Echoes of Eternity
From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.
Psalm 113:3
From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, My name is praised by My people. But My name is blasphemed every day and every hour by those who do not know nor fear Me. Pray,
My child, for those you love who are in the bonds of darkness. You are a vital link in their journey into light. Their fate is not sealed, but open to the possibility of repentance and change. I will not force them against their will, but prayer is a powerful force to bring against the gates of hell. It is the secret weapon that the enemy cannot ultimately destroy nor defeat. Keep hope in prayer, and believe, My child, that My love for them is greater than yours. My compassion knows no limit—no matter how disgusting or impossible their condition may appear to you. So keep praying!

By Sr. Nun Other Recent events revealed two important things to me: I rely heavily on routine, and I##039;m people dependent. I spent the early days of a recent Tuscany tour (pilgrimage, actually) re-defining my faith. I##039;m strong in my home environment, but when surrounded by the unfamiliar, not so much. While grateful for progress on my Christian walk, I realize I have miles of journey ahead to become fully grounded in Christ.

Not Just a Routine Christian

By Sr. Nun Other

Recent events revealed two important things to me: I rely heavily on routine, and I’m people dependent. I spent the early days of a recent Tuscany tour (pilgrimage, actually) re-defining my faith. I’m strong in my home environment, but when surrounded by the unfamiliar, not so much. While grateful for progress on my Christian walk, I realize I have miles of journey ahead to become fully grounded in Christ. As autumn transitions to winter, I trust and rely on His love, that spring waits on the other side.

This is from Richard Nootbaar from The Sycamore Tree Bookstore:
#quot;Happy All Saints Week to all of you who minister at Paraclete Press. It is so difficult to choose just one saint, but one of my favorites from the 20th century is Maximilian Kolbe. Offering to give his own life to save that of a husband and father at the hands of his Nazi captors modeled for us Christ##039;s words that no greater love is there than to lay down one##039;s life for a friend. He also was a great scholar, was devoted to Mary, and was always cheerfully obedient to the tasks assigned to him by The Church. Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us!#quot;
Peace and Grace,
Richard Nootbaar

October 30 Echoes of Eternity
Cast thy burden upon the Lord. Take My yoke upon you . . . for My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Psalm 55:22 and Matthew 11:29,30
Cast your burden upon Me, and take My burden upon you. Your burden is too heavy for you, My child. It is laden with sins past, old guilt, many fears, and unwholesome ambitions. There must
be a daily “casting” of this burden upon Me, or it will grow heavier and heavier, weighing you down and hindering your journey. Ask My Spirit’s searchlight to show you where you need to face any sin, repent, and be freed.
Take My burden in place of yours. My burden of care, of love for others who may never return yours in kind, of faithfulness in prayer and the burden of faith, of believing where you cannot see. Accept this burden, My child, and travel light!
