Feast of St. Alphonsus Liguori
2 Timothy 2:1-7 (epistle from today's Mass)
Today is the feast day of the great Saint Alphonsus, who so advanced devotion to Mary under her title of the Mother of Perpetual Help. Say a prayer today for the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer, a group of traditional monks in the Redemptorist tradition whose blog is linked at right.
Remember, too, the requiem Mass for Archbishop Sambi at St. Francis de Sales Oratory at 6:30pm this evening. Perpetual Help devotions at 6pm.
Finally, today the faithful may gain the annual Portiuncula indulgence.
