Bible Study
with Fr. Matthew

 

“The Parables of Jesus”
Jesus taught in parables, using familiar things in life to give us new understanding—God’s perspective on things.  This is one way Jesus revealed (revelation) the Kingdom of God.  We will explore these parables to seek Jesus’ message to us.   Questions welcome.  Bring your Bibles.


Saint of the Week
 

FEBRUARY 21—PETER DAMIAN (1007-1072) was born in Ravenna, Italy.  He displayed extraordinary intellectual gifts as a youth, and became a “professor” by age 21.  Seven years later he retired to the solitary life, where he composed the rule for the Camaldolese hermits.  He was called away from the solitary life to become bishop of Ostia (outside Rome) and was even named a Cardinal. He was an ardent defender of the reforms of Pope Gregory VII, combatting the most serious vices of the clergy of his time—simony and immorality – and promoted renewal of religious life.  He was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1828. 

MARCH 3—KATHARINE DREXEL (1858-1955) was a wealthy young heiress in Philadelphia when the Church asked her family to help missions that served Native Americans and African Americans.   Katharine became so involved in this ministry, that at an audience with Pope Leo XIII, he asked her to become a missionary.  She took religious vows, and went on to establish the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament in 1891 and Xavier University in New Orleans in 1915.  During her lifetime, Katharine spent over twelve million dollars of her own resources on this ministry.
