Today is the Feast Day of Spiritual Warrior Saint Alexis the Beggar ✝ Pray for us
Alexis was the only son of a rich Roman senator. From his good Christian parents, he learned to be charitable to the poor. Alexis wanted to give up his wealth and honors but his parents had chosen a wealthy bride for him. Because it was their will, he married her. Yet on his wedding day, he obtained her permission to leave her for God. Then, in disguise, he traveled to Syria in the East and lived in great poverty near a Church of Our Lady.
One day, a picture of Our Blessed Mother spoke to tell the people that this beggar was very holy. She called him "The Man of God." When he became famous for this, he fled back to Rome.
He came as a beggar to his own home. His parents did not recognize him, but they were very kind to all poor people and so they let him stay there. In a corner under the stairs in the palace, Alexis lived for seventeen years. He used to go out only to pray in church and to teach little children about God. The servants were often very mean to him, and though he could have ended all these sufferings just by telling his father who he was, he chose to say nothing.
His parents came to know who they had been sheltering from a manuscript found on his body after his death, and written in his own hand. All the bells in Rome started ringing as a tribute to this selfless beggar, known as “The Man of God.” There is a Religious Order in the Catholic Church named for him and called “The Alexian Brothers.” They devote themselves to taking care of the old, the insane and those suffering from nervous collapse.
We are very excited to share with you our latest project, a brand new book of prayer services for teens! 🙏This would be an excellent addition to any parish library. You can check it out by clicking the link in our profile.
The weather may be cold and unpredictable at the moment but there was a fabulous vibe around St Therese today for our first day back. Everyone was settled, calm and ready to go for another term full of amazing experiences.
Make sure you ask your child what their highlight was from today, we're sure the thunderstorm was a big hit ;)
