Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Article

Celebrates the Blood of Our Saviour, shed for the redemption of mankind, mentioned repeatedly in the New Testament. Since the Council of Trent theologians generally hold that it was an essential part of the Sacred Humanity and consequently hypostatically united to the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity and therefore an object of adoration. Although special honour was bestowed upon it by the Apostles and Fathers and many saints, yet a feast in its honour was not celebrated till the beginning of the 19th century, when Saint Gaspare del Bufalo obtained permission to have it celebrated in the Missionary Society of the Precious Blood. Pope Blessed Pius IX extended the feast to the entire Church in 1849. There has been an arch-confraternity of the Precious Blood since 1815.

Blessed Nazju Falzon

Also known as

Ignatius Falzon

Profile

Son of Francis Joseph, a judge, and Mary Teresa, the daughter of judge. Ignatius and all three of his brothers became lawyers; two of his brothers entered the priesthood. Ignatius received minor orders at age 15. He earned a degree in theology, but did not feel worthy of the priesthood, and though his bishop encouraged him, Ignatius never took the final step of becoming ordained. Taught catechism to children at the Institute of the Good Shepherd; known to help the poorer children with money, as well.

Worked with the British soldiers and sailors stationed on Malta, meeting them by hanging around the docks and other places where they were assigned. They were rough men in a rough district of bars and and prostitutes, but when Ignatius found those who interested in the faith, he brought to his own home for services. When more and more men grew interested, he moved them to the Jesuit Church in Valletta, Malta. To explain the faith, he imported simple religious works in assorted vernacular languages, and distributed them to the men. Wrote The Comfort of the Christian Soul. He converted hundreds, and for those who stayed on the island, he became their pastor, performed their marriages, baptized their children, said homilies at their funerals.

Born

1 July 1813 at Valletta, Malta

Died

• 1 July 1865, Valletta, Malta of cancer
• buried in the family vault in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception in the Church of the Franciscan Minors, Mary of Jesus in Valletta

Beatified

• 9 May 2001 by Pope John Paul II
• beatification miracle involved the complete disappearance of cancer in 64 year old man in 1981

Readings

The Servant of God Ignatius Falzon also had a great passion for preaching the Gospel and teaching the Catholic faith. He too put his many talents and his intellectual training at the service of catechetical work. The Apostle Paul wrote that "each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Cor 9:7). Blessed Nazju was one who gave abundantly and cheerfully; and people saw in him not only boundless energy but also deep peace and joy. He renounced the worldly success for which his background had prepared him, in order to serve the spiritual good of others, including the many British soldiers and sailors stationed in Malta at the time. In his approach to them, few of whom were Catholic, he anticipated the ecumenical spirit of respect and dialogue, which is familiar to us today but which was not always prevalent at that time.

Ignatius Falzon drew his strength and inspiration from the Eucharist, prayer before the Tabernacle, devotion to Mary and the Rosary, and imitation of Saint Joseph. These are fountains of grace from which all Christians may drink. Holiness and zeal for God's Kingdom flourish especially where parishes and communities encourage prayer and devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. I urge you therefore to cherish your Maltese traditions of piety, purifying them where necessary and strengthening them with sound instruction and catechesis. There would be no better way of honouring the memory of Blessed Nazju Falzon. - Pope John Paul II during the beatification Mass for Blessed Nazju

Saint Oliver Plunkett

Also known as

Oileabhéar Pluincéad

Profile

Oliver was born to the Irish nobility, part of a family who supported King Charles I and the fight for Irish national freedom from England. Growing up, he was greatly influenced by his uncle Patrick, a Cistercian monk who later became bishop of the Irish dioceses of Ardagh and Meath. Beginning in 1647, Oliver studied at the newly established Irish College in Rome, Italy, an institute operated by the Jesuits. He was ordained a priest in Rome in 1654. He loved the city of Rome and stayed there to serve as professor of theology at the Propaganda Fide College from 1654 through 1669, and part of the time as procurator or agent in Rome for the bishops of Ireland. In 1669 Father Oliver was chosen archbishop of Armagh, Ireland, making him the primate, or primary Church official, of all Ireland.

Bishop Oliver's return to Ireland was a rough one; discipline was lax among the priests, and many clergy and laity were so provincial that they objected to a man from County Meath becoming bishop in Armagh. Oliver worked to return the faithful to the faith, and his diocese to their support. He established the Jesuits in Drogheda, where they ran a school for boys, and a college for theology students. He enforced clerical discipline and worked to send students to the colleges in Rome. He extended his ministry to Gaelic speaking Catholics of the highlands and the isles off the coast of Ireland, but due to a increase in the persecution of Catholics, he was forced to conduct much of his ministry covertly.

Saint Oliver was arrested and at Dundalk, Ireland in 1679 on a charge of conspiring against the state as part of the "Titus Oates" plot to overthrow King Charles II. He was initially lodged at Dublin Castle where he gave final absolution to Archbishop Peter Talbot of Dublin. Oliver was accused to taxing the clergy to pay for 70,000 men, 20,000 of whom would be French soldiers that the bishop would bring into the country. The English authorities knew that Oliver would never be convicted in Ireland, and had him moved to Newgate prison in London, England. His first trial was an aquittal, but he was not released. Instead, a second trial was arranged, and it was complete kangaroo court; Lord Campbell, writing of the judge, Sir Francis Pemberton, called it a disgrace to himself and his country. Plunkett was found guilty of high treason "for promoting the Catholic faith," and was condemned to a gruesome death. He was the last Catholic to die for his faith on the gallows at Tyburn in London, and was the first of the Irish Martyrs to be beatified.

Born

30 September 1629 at Loughenew, County Meath, Ireland

Saint Junipero Serra

Also known as

• Apostle of California
• Miguel José Serra Ferrer

Additional Memorial

1 July (United States)

Profile

Entered the Franciscan University at Palma, Spain at age 15, and joined the Order at age 17, taking the name Junipero after the friend of Saint Francis. Ordained in 1737, and taught philosophy and theology at the Lullian University.

In 1749, Serra was sent to the missionary territories of the west of North America. A mosquito bite he received early in his trip to the New World left one leg swollen; this and his asthma made walking a painful process for the rest of his life. In 1768 he took over missions in the Mexican provinces of Lower and Upper California, missions the Jesuits were forced to abandon by order of King Charles III. A tireless worker, Serra was largely responsible for the foundation and spread of the Church on the West Coast of the United States. Founded twenty-one missions, converted thousands of Native Americans, and trained many of them in European methods of agriculture, cattle husbandry, and crafts. Dedicated religious and missionary, penitent and austere in all areas of his life.

Blessed Junipero Serra is the namesake of the Serra Club, an international Catholic organization dedicated to the promotion of vocations, and the support of seminarians and religious novices. Many of his letters and other writings have survived, and the diary of his travels to the west was published in the early 20th century.
