A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

Do you notice how summer just seems to sneak up on us?  One day it's cold and rainy and the next day it's 80 degrees and sunny. The beauty of summer never gets old.  There is always that one flower or tree that blooms and right away we summon up all the happy memories of past summers.  I remember sitting on the front porch and reconnecting with the neighbors.  Nothing earth shattering was ever discussed but somehow we felt so much better and felt a real connection to the world - we put away our struggles for a day.  Glorious!

Fr. Jordan said:
As far as possible put all your effort into being serene, cheerful and friendly; such dispositions promote the well-being of body and soul.


When the days and nights are "perfect" it is so easy to know what he meant. The cold, damp months fade away and we are all more cheerful and friendly.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to keep that feeling all year long?

And in summer let's not forget that daily prayer also contributes to our soul's well-being. The Salvatorians have scheduled a Novena of Masses, celebrated at our Motherhouse in Rome from July 26 to August third, in honor of the Blessed Mary's parents SS Joachim & Anne. What a good time to reflect on the joy and satisfaction that comes from offering parental guidance to someone we cherish.  Remember the many ways our own parents encouraged us to enjoy that peacefulness that comes at the end of a hot summer day.

Please celebrate with us! Be sure to send me your intentions either online, by mail or call 1-800-254-4902 so that we may include them in our prayers during this special Novena.

Ah Summer! What a perfect time to find the pathway to serenity, cheerfulness and friendliness.

May our Savior bless you always, and those you love.

• Two holy Masses celebrated at our Salvatorian motherhouse in Rome;
• 10 Masses on special feast days, including Christmas, Easter, and All Saints Day;
