Sacredness of the Body

“He who cleaves to the Lord is one spirit with him. Flee immorality. Do you not know that your members are the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought at a great price. Glorify God and bear him in your body.” I Corinthians 6: 12-20

The fire of faith is best spread by living and witnessing the graces and gifts we have received.

Francis Xavier Cabrini

God our Father,
you called Frances Xavier Cabrini from Italy
to serve the immigrants of America.

By her example teach us concern for the stranger,
the sick, and the frustrated.
By her prayers help us to see Christ
in all the men and women we meet.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
