The Feast of St. Margaret of Antioch

Summer Greetings!  I just found this quote by St. Mary MacKillop whose feast day is August 8, “Do not let your troubles disturb your trust in God.” 

I have spoken to many people recently and it seems we all have come to the same consensus that it is of utmost importance that we must continue to hold fast to what is most basic to our Faith. In that regard what is most basic is also the most profound, we must make great efforts to include the Rosary, frequent Confession, adoration, daily prayer, and study as well as attending Holy Mass weekly but preferably even more often.  Set a goal for yourself, make a plan to add one pillar at a time. 

Roadmap to Heaven with Adam Wright is my new favorite program.  Have you been able to listen each weekday morning at 7am?  Adam has local and national guests sharing their Faith and he would like to hear from you about what you would like to hear, email him at or call 314-752-7000.  Let him know if you have any suggestions of what you would like to hear or ideas to share for growing in holiness.  Adam has Bishop Rivituso scheduled as a guest on August 13.  You also hear Adam throughout the day checking in and sharing what’s happening and encouraging everyone to keep Heaven as our focus.  

Summer is here, it’s hot and humid, just as we expect here in the Midwest.  If the weather and the world are keeping you inside more than normal, tune in to Covenant Network throughout the day.  Join us at 10 am for the Holy Rosary, do you like the Patriotic Rosary?  I feel like it is especially important now.  For now, we are still carrying the extra Holy Mass at 6 p.m. while many people are not able to get to daily Mass.  We will broadcast the Installation of Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski on the Feast of St. Louis on August 25 in St. Louis and on the Mobile App.

Finally, I ask you to help Covenant Network.  We need your financial support and volunteers who can help consistently.  Can you put a window or bumper sticker on your car, or just share with others that we are here for you.  Thanks so much.  Please keep Covenant Network in your prayers.   You remain in ours.

“God commands you to pray, but He forbids you to worry.” Saint Francis de Sales
