We begin reading from the Book of Exodus on Monday of this week, and for almost three weeks we’ll be reading the story of one of our most important ancestors in faith– Moses. God sends Moses to bring his people from Egypt to the Promised Land after “ A new king came to power in Egypt who knew nothing of Joseph.”
We continue reading from the Gospel of Matthew, chapters 10-12.
St. Bonaventure, whose feast is celebrated on Thursday, played an important role in the development of the Franciscan movement. He brought intellectual gifts to Francis’ tradition.
The saints (and important figures) of any tradition bring new dimensions to the original charism of the founder.
Mary, the Mother of Jesus, enriches the charism of so many great religious traditions in the church by her presence. Our Lady of Mount Carmel (July 16) enriches the Carmelite tradition.
