SAINT OF THE DAY

Blessed Maria Fortunata Viti

Blessed Maria Fortunata Viti

Blessed Maria Fortunata Viti (1827–1922) was born in Italy, the eldest daughter of nine children. Her father had a gambling and alcohol addiction, and her mother died when she was 14 years old. Maria then cared for her younger siblings and worked as a housekeeper to earn money for the family as her father sunk deeper into his addiction. Maria rejected an offer for marriage, deciding instead to become a Benedictine nun at the age of 24. Sr. Maria Fortunata, illiterate her entire life, spent more than seventy years in the monastery as a housekeeper attending to the washing, sewing, and other simple tasks, which was her path to holiness. She was admired for her great simplicity of heart, and her confessor testified that she was often accosted by the devil with threats, physical attacks, and vile insults in attempts to break her virtue. She had great devotion to the Blessed Sacrament and made frequent visits to the chapel tabernacle as she carried out her daily tasks. She died at the age of 95, and after her death miracles were reported at her grave. She is a patron saint against poverty, temptations, loss of parents, and mental illness. Her feast day is November 20th.

GOSPEL NOVEMBER 19, 2017

Jesus

Jesus told his disciples this parable:
"A man going on a journey
called in his servants and entrusted
his possessions to them.
To one he gave five talents;
to another, two;
to a third, one--
to each according to his ability.
Then he went away.
Immediately the one
who received five talents
went and traded with them,
and made another five.
Likewise, the one who received
two made another two.
But the man who received one went off
and dug a hole in the ground
and buried his master's money.

After a long time
the master of those servants came back
and settled accounts with them.
The one who had received five talents came forward
bringing the additional five.
He said, 'Master,
you gave me five talents.
See, I have made five more.'
His master said to him,
'Well done, my good and faithful servant.
Since you were faithful in small matters,
I will give you great responsibilities.
Come, share your master's joy.'
Then the one who had received two talents
also came forward and said,
'Master, you gave me two talents.
See, I have made two more.'
His master said to him,
'Well done, my good and faithful servant.
Since you were faithful in small matters,
I will give you great responsibilities.
Come, share your master's joy.'
Then the one who had received the one
talent came forward and said,
'Master, I knew you were a demanding person,
harvesting where you did not plant
and gathering where you did not scatter;
so out of fear I went off and
buried your talent in the ground.
Here it is back.'
His master said to him in reply,
'You wicked, lazy servant!
So you knew that I harvest
where I did not plant
and gather where I did not scatter?
Should you not then have
put my money in the bank
so that I could have got it back
with interest on my return?
Now then!
Take the talent from him
and give it to the one with ten.
For to everyone who has,
more will be given and he will grow rich;
but from the one who has not,
even what he has will be taken away.
And throw this useless servant
 into the darkness outside,
where there will be wailing
and grinding of teeth.'"

Stop The Violence!

Verity was founded in 1974 in Sonoma County as a crisis line that men, women, or children who had been sexually assaulted could call. Over the past 38 years the organization has expanded its services to include Prevention/Education, and Crisis Intervention. That crisis line is still the only one of its kind in Sonoma County and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call (707) 545-7273 for help.
The local YWCA hot line is (707) 546-1234, also available 24/7.
