Remember “The Christophers?” Father James Keller, M.M., founded The Christophers in 1945, based on his belief that God has given each individual a special task in life which belongs to no one else. The mission of The Christophers is to encourage people of all ages, and from all walks of life, to use their God-given talents to make a positive difference in the world, as expressed in The Christophers’ motto: “It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” Learn more at: http://www.christophers.org.Additional Links: Daily Readingshttp://www.usccb.org/nab/index.htmPrayer Requests firstname.lastname@example.orgSaint of the Day http://www.americancatholic.org/features/saintofday/St. Philip the Apostle School http://www.stphiliponline.comArchdiocese of Washington http://www.adw.orgNational Shrine of the Immaculate Conceptionhttp://www.nationalshrine.comThe Catholic Standard http://www.cathstan.orgThe Catholic News Agencyhttp://www.catholicnewsagency.com/Marians of the Immaculate Conception http://marian.orgMass Timeshttp://www.masstimes.org U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishopshttp://www.USCCB.orgPope John Paul II Cultural Centerhttp://www.jp2cc.orgFranciscan Monasteryhttp://www.myfranciscan.orgThe Vaticanhttp://www.vatican.va
