  • MEET OUR EXTENDED FAMILY - THE SAINTS

    from 52 Sundays "A Guide to Reclaim The Lord’s Day for Faith and Family" 
    By Anita Houghton and Tara Stenger 

    The saints are members of the Church who are with Christ in heaven praying for those in the Church who are still on their pilgrimage of faith. The saints in this year’s edition of 52 Sundays all share one thing in common: they are martyrs of the Church.  Saints help us see how our ordinary lives can be lived out in extraordinary ways.

    Bl. Adílio Daronch
    (Feast Day May 21)
    October 25, 1908- May 21, 1924

    Blessed Adílio Daronch was a Catholic
    teenager. He was born to Italian immigrants as
    the third of eight children and lived his entire
    life in Brazil. He was known to have had a love
    for football and riding. He became a dedicated
    altar server following the reception of his
    First Communion and often accompanied
    the priest Blessed Manuel Gómez González
    on his long missions of evangelization to the
    Kaingang Indians.

    In 1924, the Bishop of Santa Maria asked Fr.
    Manuel to go to the Teutonic colonies in the forest in the south, so Fr. Manuel decided to
    take Daronch with him. The pair stopped in
    Palmeria to administer the sacraments where
    Fr. Manuel exhorted the local revolutionaries to
    practice mutual respect and forgiveness. But the
    extremists took a strong dislike to this and grew
    incensed when he provided a burial for some of
    their own. The extremists viewed the pair with
    suspicion and plotted to kill them for this.

    The locals warned the two not to go into the
    forest for they would be at risk. The pair was
    ambushed in the morning on May 21 and shot
    dead. Both were beatified in October of 2007
    in Brazil. Daronch was made the co-patron for
    World Youth Day 2012 and 2013.


    FAMILY FUN:   

    Family Game Night

    The apostles James and John were competitive and wanted to be considered the greatest of the disciples. Create a spirit of friendly competition by playing some family games. Parents can pick one game and the kids can pick another. Consider an outdoor game, a card game, or a board game. Hit a discount or dollar store to get fun prizes for winners and losers.
