St. Bartholomew (August 24) is the apostle we remember this month. Faith comes to us from the apostles, so each month we remember an apostle.

The Passionists celebrate the feast of Blessed Dominic Barberi August 26. He received St. John Henry Newman into the Catholic Church.

St, Augustine and St. Monica, his mother, are remembered August 27-28 . Notice they’re both  celebrated equally as memorials. Monica comes first. God answered her prayers for her wayward son, Augustine said.

We’re reading from St. Paul’s First Letter to the Thessalonians this week. An Introduction to the letter here. www.usccb.org (Bible)
