The football rams actually won a game yesterday. The saints must have been involved (It was All Saints Day on the Church Calendar). It has been over a year. Ironically, the Rams did break a record for the most losing FB team – so now they have NO record to speak of.
Humor of the Day:
Most people want to serve God, but only in an advisory position.
From the Apostles Creed (continued):
“… AND IN JESUS CHRIST, HIS ONLY SON, OUR LORD …”
Because of Adam & Eve’s fall from grace, the coming of Christ became necessary, and took on a profound meaning. We believe that God became man in Jesus Christ, and the reason for Jesus’ incarnation is man’s need for salvation.
The name ‘Jesus’ was given to the infant God for a reason. It is the Latin form of the Greek word Iesous, and in Hebrew is Yeshua, which means ‘Yahweh is salvation.’ The name ‘Christ’ is taken from the Greek word Christos, which means ‘Anointed.’ And this corresponds to the Hebrew word Mashiah or ‘Messiah.’
At the Annunciation, the angel Gabriel told Mary that the child she was to conceive would be called the “Son of the Most High”. There is no other son of God now, in the past, nor in the future. Jesus has always existed, and will always exist. His existence prior to even Mary’s birth is a mystery – a true ‘faith statement.’
Jesus Christ is our Lord. He created the universe, and everything in it. He sustains us by His love and omnipotence; and provides for all our bodily and spiritual needs. Jesus governs us by His total love for all, and His infinitely wise laws and commandments. And, He is leading us to eternal salvation in heaven, if we allow.

Secular Franciscan Order (SFO) Rule #2:
The Secular Franciscan Order holds a special place in this family circle. It is an organic union of all Catholic fraternities scattered throughout the world and open to every group of the faithful. In these fraternities the brothers and sisters, led by the Spirit, strive for perfect charity in their own secular state. By their profession they pledge themselves to live the gospel in the manner of Saint Francis by means of this rule approved by the Church.
