The Feast of Saint Robert Bellarmine

Click above to watch Father Jerry’s video for Thursday, September 17th. Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Robert Bellarmine, an Italian Jesuit who was instrumental during the counter-reformation of the church. He wrote a catechism and is the patron saint of catechists and catechumens. Let us pray.

O God who adorned the Bishop Saint Robert Bellarmine with wonderful learning and virtue, to vindicate the faith of your church, grant through his intercession that in the integrity of that same faith, Your people may always find joy. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever. Amen.
