SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Gerard Sagredo

St. Gerard Sagredo

St. Gerard Sagredo (980–1046 A.D.) was born in Venice, Italy. From an early age he desired to dedicate his life to God, and as a young man became a Benedictine monk. He first served as abbot at a monastery in Venice, but left to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. While passing through Hungary he met the Hungarian king, St. Stephen, who asked him to stay in his country to evangelize and minister to his people. St. Gerard agreed, and was named Bishop of Csanád and the royal tutor of the Hungarian prince. He ministered tirelessly among the Hungarian people and helped to convert the whole country to Christianity, for which he is called the "Apostle of Hungary". After the death of King St. Stephen there was a pagan uprising against the Christians, and St. Gerard was martyred for the faith along with two others. His death took place on a hill in Budapest which is now named after him; according to one tradition he was placed in a barrel lined with spikes, and rolled down the hill. He was declared a saint in 1083 by Pope St. Gregory VII. St. Gerard Sagredo is the patron saint of Hungary, and his feast day is September 24th.

I can’t believe that it’s the end of summer! Kids are back in school and life is getting back to normal. It’s also time for The Madonna’s to start meeting again. We meet on the second  Monday of the month at 7 pm,
in rooms A & B.
Please join us.
We have a lot planned for the upcoming year. Our first big project is the November Fest. There will be vendors, entertainment, food, and a sale of gently used items. Look for further information in the bulletin and on the Web.
In March, we'll have a Women’s Retreat. This is a must have for all the women in the Parish. I always come away with a feeling of peace and renewal.
The Madonna’s mission is to live our Christian beliefs. Our goal is to incorporate and uphold our beliefs in all aspects of our daily lives; and to live our faith and become an example of our Christian life for those around us.
We encourage the women of our Parish to become a part of something wonderful in our Church. Please consider joining The Madonna’s.

GOSPEL SEPTEMBER 24, 2017

Jesus

Jesus told his disciples
this parable:
"The kingdom of heaven is like a landowner
who went out at dawn
to hire laborers for his vineyard.
After agreeing with them for the usual daily wage,
he sent them into his vineyard.
Going out about nine o'clock,
the landowner saw others
standing idle in the marketplace,
and he said to them,
'You too go into my vineyard,
and I will give you what is just.'
So they went off.
And he went out again around noon,
and around three o'clock,
and did likewise.
Going out about five o'clock,
the landowner found others
standing around,
and said to them,
'Why do you stand here idle all day?'
They answered,
'Because no one has hired us.'
He said to them,
'You too go into my vineyard.'
When it was evening the owner
of the vineyard said to his foreman,
'Summon the laborers
and give them their pay,
beginning with the last
 and ending with the first.'
When those who had started
about five o'clock came,
each received the usual daily wage.
So, when the first came,
they thought that they would receive more,
but each of them also got the usual wage.
And on receiving it they grumbled
against the landowner, saying,
'These last ones worked only one hour,
and you have made them equal to us,
who bore the day's burden and the heat.'
He said to one of them in reply,
'My friend, I am not cheating you.
Did you not agree with me
for the usual daily wage?
Take what is yours and go.
What if I wish to give this
last one the same as you?
Or am I not free to do
as I wish with my own money?
Are you envious
because I am generous?'
Thus, the last will be first,
and the first will be last."

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.
