Holy Father,
for us who celebrate
the new birth of the Blessed Martyrs
Mateu, Teófilo, Ferran and companions,
grant us that,
aware of their glorious testimony,
may we walk freely and strong,
to encounter Christ who comes.


Biblical Text of the Day

Joseph Ferrer Escolá

  My friends, don’t be afraid of people. They can kill you, but after that, there is nothing else they can do. God is the one you must fear. Not only can he take your life, but he can throw you into hell. God is certainly the one you should fear! Five sparrows are sold for just two pennies, but God doesn’t forget a one of them. Even the hairs on your head are counted. So don’t be afraid! You are worth much more than many sparrows. Lc 12,4-7 BIOGRAPHY

Vicente Vazquez de Santos

  My dear friends, remember what you were when God chose you. The people of this world didn’t think that many of you were wise. Only a few of you were in places of power, and not many of you came from important families. But God chose the foolish things of this world to put the wise to shame. He chose the weak things of this world to put the powerful to shame. What the world thinks is worthless, useless, and nothing at all is what God has used to destroy what the world considers important. 1 Co 1,26-28 BIOGRAPHY
