St. Manuel González García

u003cstrongu003eu0022I ask to be buried next to a Tabernacle, so that my bones, after death, as my tongue and my pen in life, are saying to those who pass: there is Jesus! There He is! Do not let him be abandoned!u0022u003c/strongu003eu003cbru003eu003cbru003eBorn in Spain in 1877, Manuel envisioned his life as a simple priest. He wrote, u0022If I would be born a thousand times; a thousand times I would be a priest.u0022 After ordination, he was sent to the village of Aljarafe, eager to find a vibrant faith community. Upon arriving, however, he discovered his church in poor condition, with dust throughout and even burnt altar cloths. He knelt before the dusty, cob-web-covered tabernacle and had a sense of someone “in desperate need of a friend.” He writes, “My faith was looking at Jesus through the door of that tabernacle, so silent, so patient, so good, gazing right back at me…His gaze was telling me much and asking me for more. It was a gaze in which all the sadness of the Gospels was reflected; the sadness of ‘no room in the Inn’; the sadness of those words, ‘Do you also want to leave me?’; the sadness of poor Lazarus begging for crumbs from the rich man’s table; the sadness of the betrayal of Judas, the denial of Peter, of the soldier’s slap, of the spittle of the Praetorium, and the abandonment of all.” u003cbru003eu003cbru003eOn December 6, 1915, St. Manuel González García was ordained auxiliary bishop of Málaga, an appointment that he celebrated by inviting three thousand of the poorest children to a banquet. On August 5, 1935, he was appointed bishop of Palencia by Pope Pius XI. During a visit to Zaragoza in 1939, he fell seriously ill and had to be transferred to Madrid, where he passed away on January 4, 1940.

Blessed Carlo Acutis

u003cstrongu003e“The Eucharist is the highway to heaven.”u003c/strongu003eu003cbru003eu003cbru003eBorn on May 3, 1991, Blessed Carlo enjoyed soccer, video games on his PlayStation, comics, and movies. His parents were not particularly religious; yet, he had a special love of God. He received his First Communion at age seven and began attending Mass and praying before the Blessed Sacrament as often as he could. He also held a deep devotion to the Our Lady through the Rosary. At school, he stood up for those who were bullied, especially disabled peers.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eAmong his many hobbies was building a website cataloging the Eucharistic Miracles of the world, many of whose sites he pilgrimaged to with his family. On the website, he wrote, “the more often we receive the Eucharist, the more we will become like Jesus, so that on this earth we will have a foretaste of heaven.”u003cbru003eu003cbru003eAs a teenager, when Carlo was diagnosed with leukemia, he said, ”I offer all that I must suffer for the Lord, for the Pope, and the Church.” He died on Oct. 12, 2006 and was buried at his request in Assisi.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eIn the life of Blessed Carlo, we see an ordinary person who strove to live an everyday, ordinary life simply fostering the gifts God had given him and cooperating with God’s Grace. His brief existence u0022was like a beacon lighting the way not only of anyone who met him on their path, but also of those people yet to know his story.u0022 Blessed Carlo Acutis, pray for us!
