Feast of Saint Matthew the Evangelist Print E-mail

Feast of Saint Matthew the EvangelistFriday, September 21st

The name Matthew is derived from the Hebrew Mattija, being shortened to Mattai in post-Biblical Hebrew. In Greek it is sometimes spelled Maththaios, BD, and sometimes Matthaios, CEKL, but grammarians do not agree as to which of the two spellings is the original.

Matthew, the son of Alpheus (Mark 2:14) was a Galilean, although Eusebius informs us that he was a Syrian. As tax-gatherer at Capharnaum, he collected custom duties for Herod Antipas, and, although a Jew, was despised by the Pharisees, who hated all publicans. When summoned by Jesus, Matthew arose and followed Him and tendered Him a feast in his house, where tax-gatherers and sinners sat at table with Christ and His disciples. This drew forth a protest from the Pharisees whom Jesus rebuked in these consoling words: "I came not to call the just, but sinners".

Matki Bożej Różańcowej w Amerykańskiej Częstochowie... Print E-mail

Różaniec jest to modlitwa, którą bardzo ukochałem (...). Prawdziwa w swej istocie i głębi (...). Oto bowiem przez Pozdrowienie Anielskie przesuwają się przed oczyma naszej duszy główne momenty z życia Jezusa Chrystusa (...) jakbyśmy obcowali z Panem Jezusem przez serce Jego Matki. Równoczesnie zaś w te same dziesiątki różańca, serce nasze może wprowadzić wszystkie sprawy, które składają się na życie człowieka, rodziny, narodu, Kościoła, ludzkości...

Od lat z różańcem w ręku przychodzą tutaj pielgrzymi różnych stanów, rodziny i całe parafie, aby od Maryi uczyć się miłości do Chrystusa wybierajac tą najlepszą szkołę, Jej szkołę, ufnie przedstawiając wszystkie troski i smutki, radości i nadzieje...

Jan Paweł II

Early in the fourth century St. Helena, mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine, went to Jerusalem in search of the holy places of Christ's life. She razed the Temple of Aphrodite, which tradition held was built over the Savior's tomb, and her son built the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher over the tomb. During the excavation, workers found three crosses. Legend has it that the one on which Jesus died was identified when its touch healed a dying woman.

The Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary Print E-mail

09-12-most_holy_name_of_the_blessed_virgin_mary-01.jpgWednesday, September 12th

In accordance with Jewish custom our Lady's parents named her eight days after her birth, and were inspired to call her Mary. The Hebrew name of Mary (in Latin Domina) means lady or sovereign; this Mary is in virtue of her Son's sovereign authority as Lord of the World. We call Mary our Lady as we call Jesus our Lord. When we pronounce her name, we affirm her power, implore her aid and place ourselves under her protection.
