Vatican News, July 3, 2022

Ahead of the traditional noon-day prayer of the Angelus on Sunday, Pope Francis paused to reflect on the day’s Gospel, in which Jesus sends out the 72 disciples in pairs.

“To go on a mission two by two, from a practical point of view, would seem to bring more disadvantages than advantages,” he said. Read more...

By the Hawaii Catholic Herald

The Discalced Carmelite Secular Group of Hawaii held a double ceremony on June 4 at the Carmelite Monastery chapel on the grounds of St. Stephen Diocesan Center. New member Jennie Roller was welcomed into the group in a rite of admission ceremony and Janice Eala made her first promise — her initial three-year pledge to pursue personal holiness through Carmelite spirituality and to care for others with prayer and good works.

The monastery, Carmel of the Holy Trinity, is where discalced Carmelite nuns live in a cloistered community.

The Discalced Carmelite Seculars (OCDS), commonly known as Secular Carmelites, is a branch and an integral part of the Carmelite order. The seculars are lay Catholics, men and women, married and single, from all walks of life, who integrate the Carmelite spirituality into their daily lives in order to seek God and share him with others through prayer and apostolate.

Saint of the Week

Saint Anthony Zaccaria
Memorial - July 5

Saint Anthony was born in Northern Italy just as the powder keg of the Protestant Reformation was about to ignite. He studied medicine and became a practicing physician. But his real love was people’s souls, not their bodies, and he dedicated most of his time to teaching the catechism to the poor. Like so many priestly vocations, others recognized his gifts before he saw them himself. Friends and family encouraged him to study for the Priesthood. Saint Anthony was ordained in 1528 and soon moved to the bustling city of Milan. He became a roving chaplain to nobles and to diverse lay groups committed to charitable works and to invigorating Milanese society with an authentic Catholic spirituality. Read more...
