Solemnity of St. Gaspar del Bufalo
As we draw closer to the 200th year of our life as a community it is important to remember the significance of our founder, St. Gaspar del Bufalo. Through his hard work, perseverance, wisdom, and love he established a community which was inspired by the Spirituality of the Precious Blood and dedicated to the ministry of God’s Word.
On October 21, 2014 we will celebrate the Solemnity of St. Gaspar. The Opening Collect of the Mass reads:
Almighty and merciful God, who gave us an ardent witness of love for you and for our neighbor in Saint Gaspar del Bufalo, priest and dedicated missionary of the Precious Blood of Christ; through his intercession, listen to the voice of the blood of your Son which daily rises to you from the earth in the painful cry of suffering humanity. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
May we, the heirs of St. Gaspar’s vision, be nourished by the Precious Blood in order to work tirelessly for the coming of the Kingdom of God! St. Gaspar del Bufalo, pray for us!
