Happy Friday! Today Matt and Anna talk to Fr Hezekias Carnazzo of the Institute of Catholic Culture and Fr. Jonathan Duncan of the Diocese of Charleston about the readings for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time this weekend. Fr Thomas Berg will reflect on St Maria Goretti as an icon of forgiveness, and Joseph Pearce shares the poem, A Lament for Walsingham.
Prayer of St. Charles Borromeo
Almighty God, you have generously made known to man the mysteries of your life through Jesus Christ your Son in the Holy Spirit. Enlighten my mind to know these mysteries which your Church treasures and teaches.
Move my heart to love them and my will to live in accord with them. Give me the ability to teach this Faith to others without pride, without ostentation, and without personal gain.
Let me realize that I am simply your instrument for bringing others to the knowledge of the wonderful things you have done for all your creatures. Help me to be faithful to this task that you have entrusted to me. Amen.
