Greetings! Today is the feast of the Apostles St. Simon and St. Jude. Devotion to St. Jude has become immensely popular in the past century, especially with those who feel hopeless or have a hopeless case they are dealing with. While I was in San Fransisco a few weeks back I taped a special St. Jude edition of our SiriusXM 129 The Catholic Chanel show called Word to Life. Recorded at St. Dominic’s Priory and Parish (literally located in the geographic center of the city), I was joined by fellow Dominican Friars from the Western Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, Fr. Michael Hurley, O.P. who is the pastor of St. Dominic’s and Fr. Dismas Sayre, O.P. director of the Shrine of St. Jude located in the parish. The link to the podcast is on my profile page and I am sorry for not posting a podcast of our show in such a long time! St. Jude, pray for us! #sanfransisco#stjude#catholic#jesus#apostles#stsimon#sf#fillmoredistrict#westernedition#hope#hopelessness#lostcause#dominicanfriars#friars#opwest#opeast#stdominicsf Photo: St. Jude Shrine in San Fransisco website
Late Sunday night, after a sublime day of weather in San Fransisco, while sitting at the desk in my room I began to smell what I thought was a fireplace burning nearby. As the wind became more blustery, I noticed small pieces of ash coming in from the window. After checking online, sure enough it was from the fires that had begun around 10:00pm in Napa and Sonoma counties. This window is from the Lady Chapel of St. Dominic's Church where I have been staying with my Dominican brothers in the Fillmore District of the city by the bay. I offered my mass yesterday for all those affected by and responding to the wildfires. Pray the rosary for all in harms way. Our Lady Of the Rosary, pray for us. #sanfrancisco#wildfires#napa#sonoma#praytherosary#catholic#california#mary#ourladyoftherosary#opwest#opeast
