Father Thomas Byles (1870-1912). Father Byles was one of the priest’s onboard the sinking Titanic. Father Byles, in the midst of tragedy, heard people’s confession, and lead the recitation of the rosary. In the end Father Byles died on the ship, because he refused a sit on a lifeboat to help the people of God. Let us never forget to pray for priest for they are great men, and can help those who are troubled.
Happy B-Day Blessed Pope John Paul 2!
St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church “The angels surround and help the priest when he is celebrating Mass.”
“He who devoutly hears holy Mass will receive a great vigor to enable him to resist mortal sin, and there shall be pardoned to him all venial sins which he may have committed up to that hour.”
Our Lady of Perpetual Help pray for us!
I always try to remember to pray to Saint Joseph of Cupertino right before exams… Hope all of you do too!
