Blessed John Juvenal Ancina of the Oratory

Giovanni Giovenale Ancina (19 October 1545 – 30 August 1604) was the Bishop of Saluzzo and was an Oratorian. The bishop was also a scholar and music composer and was also known for being a noted orator. He served in the Oratory as a simple priest for around two decades prior to his episcopal appointment which he attempted to elude for five months before submitting to Pope Clement VIII and accepting the papal appointment. He entered his diocese several months later where he became noted for his charitable work with the poor and his efforts to better implement the reforms of the Council of Trent. He died after being poisoned by one of his own clergy.

Blessed Dominic Barberi received St John Henry Newman in to the Church.

Today is the feast of Blessed Dominic Barberi of the Mother of God. Instrumental in the conversion of St John Henry Newman and prolific preacher, Newman said of him that he was 'a marvellous missioner and a preacher filled with zeal. His very look had about it something holy.'

We pray for the Passionist order, which Blessed Dominic established in England, and all those who have Blessed Dominic as their patron.

August 19
Saint John Eudes

St. John Eudes was born in Ri, Orne, France. He took a vow of chastity, and studied with the Jesuits at Cain. He then went on to join the Oratorians, in 1623. One of his masters and model in the spiritual life was the mystic Charles de Condren. He was ordained a Priest on December 20th, 1625 and began his priestly life with heroic labors for the victioms of the plague, which was ravaging the country. He became famous as a missionary, and was called “the prodigy of his age”.

In 1641, he founded the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Refuge, to provide a refuge for prostitutes who wished to do penance. The society was approved by Pope Alexander VII, in January, 1666. It later also included a convent which in 1829 influenced St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier, who established The Good Shepherd Sisters, called also as Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd, after Our Lady of Charity.

St. John Eudes severed his connection with the Oratory, to establish the Congregation of Jesus and Mary, for the education of Priests and for missionary work. This congregation was founded at Caen, in 1643, and was considered a most important and urgent work. He preached not less than 110 missions, three at Paris, one at Versailles, and the others in different parts of France.

He dedicated his chapels of Caen and Coutances to the Sacred Hearts. The feast of the Holy Heart of Mary was celebrated for the first time in 1648, and that of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1672. The Mass and Office proper to these two feasts were composed by Fr. Eudes. For this reason, Pope Leo XIII in proclaiming his virtues heroic, gave him the title of, “Author of the Liturgical Worship of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Holy Heart of Mary”. He believed in the “Unity” of the hearts of Jesus and Mary and wrote, “You must never separate what God has so perfectly united. So closely are Jesus and Mary bound up with each other that whoever beholds Jesus sees Mary; whoever loves Jesus loves Mary; whoever has devotion to Jesus, has devotion to Mary”.

Fr. Eudes wrote a number of books remarkable for elevation of doctrine, and simplicity of style. His principal words are: Le Royaume de Jesus; Le contrat de l’homme avec Dieu par le Saint Bapteme; Le Memorail de la vie Ecclesiastique; Le Predicateur Apostolique; and the last is the first book ever written on devotion to the Sacred Hearts.He died at Caen, on August 19th, 1680, pronouncing the names of Jesus and Mary.

Anniversary of the death (in 1890) of St John Henry Newman. Probably the greatest theologian ever to write in the English language, he remains a sure guide for all who attempt to navigate the challenge of faith in the modern world. Pray that we, his sons, will be faithful to so great a patrimony. St John Henry: pray for us!

Tom and Elizabeth met because they were both daily Mass goers at St Thomas Apostle. Today they are leaving DC, driving to Minnesota where, in a month’s time, Fr Richard will preside at their Nuptial Mass. They have made a very significant contribution to the parish and will be greatly missed. We wish them every happiness and blessing in their life together.
