+ Saint Jane Chantal was born of a noble Burgundian family in France in 1572. As a wife, mother and later widow, the foundation of her life was always Christ. Following the death of her husband Baron de Chantal in 1601, she consecrated her life to one of chastity, and under the guidance of Francis de Sales, she became a nun and founded the Order of the Visitation. Its emphasis was on allowing women of delicate health to be trained in the religious life, while not living in a monastery. The initial convent at Annecy was devoted to caring for the ill and bereaved. In just thirty years over eighty-six convents were established.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”
+ One of the twelve apostles, Bartholomew was born at Cana in Galilee. According to tradition, he is thought to be the disciple Nathanael, who was introduced to Our Lord by Philip. Jesus found him to be a man with an innocent and simple heart, as it took little to convince Bartholomew that Our Lord was the Son of God. May God give the same simplicity of heart to us all, as we meditate on Him.
“Lord, thou hast searched me out and known me: thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising.”
+ All Saints’ Men’s Group will meet August 28th, 7:00 a.m. in the undercroft.
+ Daily Mass is celebrated at 12:15 p.m. You and your family members are all remembered by name at the Altar of God every week. Please take an All Saints parish prayer list home with you & remember your fellow parishioners in your prayers!
+ All Saints parishioner may obtain a Mass card from the Church office. A Mass card is a greeting card given to someone to inform him or her that a deceased loved one or friend was remembered and prayed for at a weekly Mass. It is a specifically Christian way to express one’s love. Call Julie McDermott at the Church office (434-979-2842) and she will help you fill out the form. The celebrant will sign the card and we will mail it from the Church to the family of the loved one.
