Many of our men have come to the United States in order to meet those challenges here in our beloved Northern California and in the Pacific Rim. St. Patrick is an excellent example for us in these days as we all witness the terrible effects of natural and man-made disasters. How inspiring it is to see brothers and sisters stepping up to offer their expertiese and humanitarian support and for the Church, as always, to be at prayer on behalf of those whom are in their moments of greatest need. On this St. Patrick's Day 2011 may the Generous Lord of Life continue to inspire us all to follow the example of the forgiving and passionate St. Patrick. May we also work tirelessly to make the Lord known to all even in the midst of suffering and adversity.
