Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

On August 25, the liturgical calendar of the universal Church celebrates the memorials of St. Louis, King of France, and St. Joseph Calasanz. Since this year it falls on a Sunday, instead of these saints, we celebrate the Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time because the celebration of Sunday takes precedence over the memorial of saints.

St. Louis IX ruled France during the 13th century. He is remembered among other things for his reforms of the French judicial system which introduced the presumption of innocence for criminal cases, the principle that all the accused are innocent until proven guilty, a standard that has been universally adopted for most crimes, which seems logic to us, but in his time, was an innovation of this Catholic monarch.

St. Joseph Calasanz was Spanish. He was born halfway through the 16th century. He founded a religious congregation, the Piarist Fathers, dedicated to the education of children and youth, especially those who are poor. This religious family still exists and is present in the Archdiocese of Miami running Cardinal Gibbons High School in Broward County.

Parishes are generally territorial, that is they include all the Christian faithful in a certain territory. The current limits of our parish territory are the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Biscayne Bay to the west, 17th Street to the south and 69th Street to the north. Therefore, if you live within our boundaries you are by the law of the Church a parishioner at St. Patrick.
