Humble Enough…
Some time ago in Florida, the St. Petersburg Times carried an interesting story about Don Shula, the coach of the Miami Dolphins.

Fr. Michael Davitti SX will celebrate the Golden Jublilee Anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood on September 27. We wish him "Ad Multos Annos!"

You can hear Fr. Michael discuss his religious vocation and missionary experience in the Xaverian Missionaries Mission Outlook Podcast .
A courageous, fruitful and creative vision of the unity between consecrated life and apostolic life. For the St. Guido it is clear that it is not a question of two realities simply put together, as if to add something more, but of a single vocation to missionary life qualified by the spirit of the Gospel of Christ.

Covid-19 has brought desolation to the world. We have lived it for so long, now, and it is not over yet. It might not be for a very long time. What to make of it? Surely, we are summoned to the courage of resistance. The search for a vaccine and for a thorough scientific explanation of what triggered the catastrophe speak to it. Are we summoned to deeper mindfulness also? Read more.

Pope Francis: We cannot go back to old ways after the pandemic

We cry out to you
God of all,
we cry out to you for help.
In your mercy, hear our prayer.

Protect us, Lord, and be with us
especially those of us most vulnerable
during this coronavirus crisis.

Move us to reach out in love
to our neighbours near and far.
So that the humble may be exalted,
the hungry filled with good things.

Grant us the courage
not to rush back to our old ways,
but to rebuild our world together,
creating foundations of justice,
with equality and peace for all.
