June 14
St. Eliseus (Ninth Century B.C.).
He was an Old Testament prophet, the disciple and companion of St. Elias. When Elias, whose feast is July 20, was taken up in a fiery chariot, he let his cloak fall upon St. Eliseus, who then became his successor.

June 15

St. Vitus (303).
Vitus, whose name can also be Guy, was a child saint, entrusted by his pagan parents to the care of a Catholic nurse, Crescentia, and her husband, Modestus. They secretly baptized him and brought him up as a Catholic. When his father discovered that he had become a Catholic, he handed him over to the pagan governor of Sicily, where he lived as punishment. Vitus, Crescentia and Modes­tus all escaped to southern Italy, and all three were captured by pagan soldiers there, cruelly tortured, and then killed. All three are lovingly remembered by the Catho­lic Church as saints. St. Vitus is one of the 14 Holy Helpers, and is known as the protector against nervous diseases, epilepsy and paralysis. He is also the protector against the ner­vous affliction known as “Saint Vitus’ Dance.”

St. Germaine Cousin (1601).
She was the daughter of a poor farmer who lived near Toulouse in France. She was born with a deformed hand and was afflicted with the disease of scrofula. Her mother died when she was an infant, and her father then married a most cruel woman who treated Germaine very harshly. The great loves of St. Germane were the Blessed Eucharist and the Blessed Virgin. She delighted to roam among the children of her town, and tell them about Jesus and Mary. She died when she was only 22 years old. She is beloved in southern France, even to this day, especially in the town of Toulouse. This is the town where St. Dominic was given the rosary, in the year 1214, by the virginal Mother of God.

June 16
St. John Francis Regis (1640).
He was one of the greatest priests of the Society of Jesus. He entered the Society of Saint Ignatius when he was 19 years old, on the feast of the Immaculate Conception. His great crusade was to bring all Prot­estants back from the heresies into which they had fallen in the 16th century. He wanted to make them members again of the one true Church, outside of which they could not be saved. He wanted very much to go to foreign missions, but was not allowed to go. He loved to climb mountains and find lonely people to whom he could teach the simple and innocent truths of the Catholic Faith. He died in the middle of a cold winter in La Louvesc in southern France. Rose Philippine Duchesne chose him as one of her patrons. His most devoted client was the Cure of Ars, St. John Marie Vianney, who got encouragement to pursue his vocation to the priesthood while praying at the tomb of St. John. When the Cure of Ars was dying, he declared, “Everything good that I have done, I owe to him.” St. John established confraterities in honor of the Blessed Sacrament and spent many hours each day in the confessional. He was hated by the Huguenots. He died saying, “I see Our Lord and His Mother opening Heaven for me.” St. John Francis Regis is the patron saint of the nuns in the Religious of the Cenacle and the patron saint of Kansas City, Mo.

June 17
St. Botolph (680).
Botolph was a Benedictine, and an Englishman, with over 70 churches dedicated to him in England. An English town, origi­nally called Saint Botolphstown, was later contracted by the style of utterance for which the English are famous, to Botolphstown, then Botolphston, then Botoston, and then Boston. And so, by reason, at least of its name, Boston, Mass is dedicated to this saintly seventh-century saint. Anyone walking along the side streets of Boston, Massachusetts, will see a street called “Saint Botolph’s Street.” This keeps many Bostonians from forgetting the saint for whom the original city was named.

St. Adolph
(Seventh Century).
He was the brother of St. Botolph and a Benedictine. Adolph was made a bishop in Germany.

St. Ranier (1160).
He was a young nobleman of Italy, born at Pisa. He dedi­cated his life to prayer, penance and good works. He even made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land so that he could see the places lovingly with his eyes and kiss the spots where Our Lord and Our Lady had been. He gave up all his noble titles, and retired to a monastery in the suburbs of Pisa. He died there when he was only 32 years old, the same age as St. John the Baptist at his death.

June 18
Sts. Mark and Marcellian (Third Century).
They were twin brothers and deacons of the Church at Rome who were martyred under Diocletian.

St. Elizabeth of Schonau (1164)
St. Elizabeth of Schonau was a Benedictine abbess who was a gifted mystic. She had her first vision in 1152 and was known for ecstasies, prophecies, and diabolical visitations. She became abbess in 1157 . Her cult was never formalized, but she is listed as a saint in the Roman Martyrology. Her brother, Ethbert, a Benedictine abbot, wrote her biography and recorded her visions in three books.

“Jesus’ Baptism”

Why did Jesus, the sinless one sent from the Father in heaven, submit himself to John’s baptism? John preached a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke 3:3). In this humble submission we see a foreshadowing of the “baptism” of Jesus bloody death upon the cross. Jesus’ baptism is the acceptance and the beginning of his mission as God’s suffering Servant (Isaiah 52:13-15; 53:1-12). He allowed himself to be numbered among sinners. Jesus submitted himself entirely to his Father’s will. Out of love he consented to this baptism of death for the remission of our sins. Do you know the joy of trust and submission to God?
