XXII Sunday of Ordinary Time  

  •  3rd of September we are commemorating St. Gregory the Great, Pope and Teacher of the Church. 

St. Gregory the Great (540 - 604) has resigned from his successful political career to become a Benedictine monk. In the year 590 he was elected to be the Pope. Gregory I was the first to coin the title "Servant of servants of God" (lat. Servus servorum Dei). It is used to this day. He introduced a new way of chanting during the mass and it is called Gregorian chant in his honour. Gregory is renowned as one of the four Teachers of the Catholic Church. He ruled the Church like the true shepherd: helping the poor, taking care of the monastic life, strengthening faith everywhere. 

  •  Wednesday, 4th of September Gintaras Grušas, Archbishop of Vilnius, is commemorating the 9th anniversary of the consecration. You are most welcome to remember him in your prayers.

1) Only for today, I will seek to live the livelong day positively without wishing to solve the problems of my life all at once.

2) Only for today, I will take the greatest care of my appearance: I will dress modestly; I will not raise my voice; I will be courteous in my behavior; I will not criticize anyone; I will not claim to improve or to discipline anyone except myself.

3) Only for today, I will be happy in the certainty that I was created to be happy, not only in the other world but also in this one.

4) Only for today, I will adapt to circumstances, without requiring all circumstances to be adapted to my own wishes.

5) Only for today, I will devote 10 minutes of my time to some good reading, remembering that just as food is necessary to the life of the body, so good reading is necessary to the life of the soul.

6) Only for today, I will do one good deed and not tell anyone about it.

7) Only for today, I will do at least one thing I do not like doing; and if my feelings are hurt, I will make sure that no one notices.

8) Only for today, I will make a plan for myself: I may not follow it to the letter, but I will make it. And I will be on guard against two evils: hastiness and indecision.

9) Only for today, I will firmly believe, despite appearances, that the good Providence of God cares for me as no one else who exists in this world.

10) Only for today, I will have no fears. In particular, I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe in goodness. Indeed, for 12 hours I can certainly do what might cause me consternation were I to believe I had to do it all my life.
