  • :pray: for you and your son.

    I'm in the same boat. So far my adult son has gotten away with not taking it, but the pressure is very great on the employer and getting worse every day. Luckily they employ less than 100 people but I suspect they will probably succuмb anyway. I wish my son to be fired and live with us,  but he lives 1200 miles away and has for many years. He does not want to come home to "mama". It's hard to reason with him. He has a religious exemption and we could probably pull a medical exemption out of a hat, but I don't know if they'll consider it.
    His patron Saint is Alphonse Rodriguez. Ask him for a favor for us , too
    OP here, you have my prayers!

    St Alphonse Rodriguez, protect Josefa’s son. Thank for the introduction to this holy saint, Josefa.

    Saint Alphonsus Rodriguez’s Story
    Tragedy and challenge beset today’s saint early in life, but Alphonsus Rodriguez found happiness and contentment through simple service and prayer.
    Born in Spain in 1533, Alphonsus inherited the family textile business at 23. Within the space of three years, his wife, daughter, and mother died; meanwhile, business was poor. Alphonsus stepped back and reassessed his life. He sold the business, and with his young son, moved into his sister’s home. There he learned the discipline of prayer and meditation.
    At the death of his son years later, Alphonsus, almost 40 by then, sought to join the Jesuits. He was not helped by his poor education. He applied twice before being admitted. For 45 years he served as doorkeeper at the Jesuits’ college in Majorca. When not at his post, he was almost always at prayer, though he often encountered difficulties and temptations.
    His holiness and prayerfulness attracted many to him, including Saint Peter Claver, then a Jesuit seminarian. Alphonsus’ life as doorkeeper may have been humdrum, but centuries later he caught the attention of poet and fellow-Jesuit Gerard Manley Hopkins, who made him the subject of one of his poems.
    Alphonsus died in 1617. He is the patron saint of Majorca.


    Reflection
    We like to think that God rewards the good, even in this life. But Alphonsus knew business losses, painful bereavement, and periods when God seemed very distant. None of his suffering made him withdraw into a shell of self-pity or bitterness. Rather, he reached out to others who lived with pain, including enslaved Africans. Among the many notables at his funeral were the sick and poor people whose lives he had touched. May they find such a friend in us!
    Help of Christians, guard our land from assault or inward stain,
    Let it be what God has planned, His new Eden where You reign.

  • Thank you both. St Alphonse (Rodriguez) is one of those humble simple Saints that suffered quietly. I kind of put him in the same category as Brother Andre, Fr Solanus Casey and maybe even Little Margaret of Castillo. 
    He is a perfect Saint for my son.

  • Excellent. Praying for John daily. Extremely heartening to hear!
