National Blessing of Arthritics

The 5th Annual National Blessing for Arthritis Sufferers, sponsored by the Redemptorists of the Denver Province, will be held on Sunday, August 3 to mark the Feast Day (August 1) of St. Alphonsus Liguori, founder of the Redemptorists and patron saint of arthritis sufferers.

Fr. Bill Adams, C.Ss.R. Daily Reflection:

Fr. Bill Adams, C.Ss.R.-Whittier, CA
July 25, 2014 - 2 Cor. 4/7-15, Matt. 20/20-28

St. James was a fisherman with his brother John. Jesus called them “sons of thunder” because of their fiery temperaments, a gift that God would use for the preaching of the Gospel. By tradition he became the apostle to Spain. St. Paul in our reading speaks about the cost of discipleship. We are all called to share Jesus with the world around us, sometimes at great cost. If we love deeply, then we must give deeply of ourselves. But Jesus is always our strength and gives us all we need to live our lives for others as a true disciple must do. Giving is our receiving. Our lives are fruitful and full as we give to others.
