Go on a pilgrimage together. Pilgrimages have a long and rich history in the Catholic Church. For many centuries, men and women have prayerfully traveled to holy sites across the world. Although we often think of pilgrimages involving long, often international, journeys, we can certainly make pilgrimages no matter what our budget or travel restrictions may be. The Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy, by the Congregation for Divine Worship, states that, among other things, “a pilgrim goes to a shrine to encounter God, to be in His presence, and to offer Him adoration in worship, and to open his heart to Him.” Even a journey to a shrine the next town over can be a deeply prayerful, transformative experience! Here are some local shrines you can visit:
          Carey: Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation, olcshrine.com
          Bellevue: Sorrowful Mother Shrine, sorrowfulmothershrine.org
          Maria Stein: Maria Stein Shrine, mariasteinshrine.org

St. Jude is the patron of lost or hopeless  causes. Does anyone have a special devotion to him or a situation youd like to lift up today?

St. Jude is the patron of lost or hopeless causes. Does anyone have a special devotion to him or a situation you'd like to lift up today?Happy Feast Day
Saint Jude Thaddeus and Saint Simon the Apostle
1st century
Feast day: October 28
Patronage: lost causes, desperate situations, hospitals
St. Jude Thaddeus was the brother of St. James the Less and a cousin of Our Lord. Jude is usually pictured with a picture of Our Lord because he cured the King of Edessa from leprosy in the name of Jesus, a club because he was martyred by being beaten to death with a club and a flame of fire because he was present at Pentecost. He is very popular as the patron of impossible cases.

Saint Simon the Apostle
Patronage: tanners, saw men, woodcutters, curriers (leather specialist)
Saint Simon was one of the twelve Apostles surnamed the Zealot. He was zealous for the honor of Christ and exact in all the duties of the Christian life. He showed a pious indignation towards those who profess the faith with their mouths but not their lives. He preached the Gospel in Egypt and Persia joining St. Jude (Thaddaeus) along the way. The saw is his attribute because he was believed martyred by being cut in half.
