Optional Memorial of Saints Jerome Emiliani and Josephine Bakhita
Saint Jerome Emiliani is the patron saint of abandoned children and orphans. In His Footsteps: Become a foster parent. Millions of children need the love and care of a foster family. Contact your local Family Services agency or Catholic Charities to find out how you can help. Prayer: Saint Jerome Emiliani, watch over all children who are abandoned or unloved. Give us the courage to show them God's love through our care. Help us to lose the chains that keep us from living the life God intended for us. Amen
 
St. Josephine Bakhita's body was mutilated by those who enslaved her, but they could not touch her spirit. Her Baptism set her on an eventual path toward asserting her civic freedom and then service to God’s people as a Canossian Sister. She who worked under many “masters” was finally happy to address God as “master” and carry out everything that she believed to be God’s will for her.
 
Today is the optional Memorial of both of these saints. Saints Jerome and Josephine, pray for us!
