November 1 | All Saints Day
Today we ask for the intercession of all Saints– those that lived holy lives on Earth and now have eternal life with God in heaven. May we continue to look to them as examples in the faith and strive to become saints as well. All you Saints, pray for us! 🙏🏼
November 2 | All Souls Day
On All Souls Day we pray for the souls of all those who have died. Let us remember today to pray for the souls of our friends and family members that have died as well as those souls who have no one to pray for them. May they rest in peace and be welcomed into heaven.
November 4 | St. Charles Borromeo
St. Charles Borromeo was an Archbishop in Italy in the 1500s and was canonized in 1610. Despite coming from a rich family, he devoted himself to the Church by becoming a priest. He gave up all he had and devoted himself to feeding and caring for the poor during a plague and famine that struck the area. Like St. Charles Borromeo, may we remember to show charity to the struggling and outcast. St. Charles Borromeo, pray for us! 🙏🏼
November 10 | St. Leo the Great
Today we celebrate St. Leo the Great who was pope from 440-461. St. Leo was known for combatting multiple heresies that were heavily believed at the time and educating others on the true teachings of the Church. Like St. Leo the Great, may we be unafraid to teach others about the Church and hold strong to her beliefs and teachings. St. Leo the Great, pray for us! 🙏🏼
November 11 | Veterans Day
Today we recognize all of those men and women who currently serve or have served our country in the military. Thank you for your sacrifice, protection, and service!
November 13 | St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini was the first United States citizen to be canonized. She started her work at an orphanage in Italy before becoming the prioress of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart which led her to establish her own orphanage in the United States. Despite many obstacles, she established 67 institutions dedicated to serving the poor, abandoned, uneducated, and sick. Like St. Frances Xavier Cabrini may we persevere in doing God’s will and treating others with kindness. St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, pray for us! 🙏🏼
November 23 | Thanksgiving Day
Today we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. May we always be thankful for the blessings that God pours out to us.
November 23 | Blessed Miguel Agustín Pro
Blessed Miguel Agustín Pro was born in Mexico but a few years after becoming a Jesuit priest fled to Spain to escape religious persecution. Upon his eventual return to Mexico, he had to secretly celebrate the sacraments for small groups of people as persecution was still rampant. His final words before he was killed were “Viva Cristo Rey!” or “Long Live Christ the King!” Like him, may we be unafraid to live out our faith and love Christ. Blessed Miguel Agustín Pro, pray for us! 🙏🏼
