July 25th, A National Holiday -- Well, in Spain, At Least!

O glorious Apostle, St. James,
who by reason of your fervent and generous heart
was chosen by Jesus to be a witness of His glory on Mount Tabor,
and of His agony in Gethsemane;
you, whose very name is a symbol of warfare and victory:

Obtain for us strength and consolation
in the unending warfare of this life,
that, having constantly and generously followed Jesus,
we may be victors in the strife
and deserve to receive the victor's crown in heaven.

I am still praying for your journey to the Sainthood as well, Father!

Hope you had a good birthday with your family. Must feel good to come home to Antigo every once in a while...where everyone knows your name! lol

Best wishes,
