Sts Philp and James.jpg

Philip, he who sees Me, sees also the Father, alleluia.
O God, who makes us glad by the yearly festival of Thine Apostles Philip and James, grant we beseech Thee, that we who rejoice in their merits may be taught by their example.

JJ O'Connor.jpgToday, we also remember the soul of John Joseph Cardinal O’Connor, PhD, archbishop of New York, 1984-2000. He died 10 years ago today.

O God, Who was pleased to raise Thy servant John Joseph O’Connor to the dignity of the episcopate; we beseech Thee, vouchsafe to admit him to the communion of Thy bishops forevermore.
