Sunday, September 21: Vespers of the 15th Sunday after Pentecost

Nain widow's son is resurrected by Christ - mosaic in Monreale Cathedral

Sunday, September 21, 15:00 (3:00 PM)
 Vespers of the 15th Sunday after Pentecost
with Benediction
Hebdomadary: Rev. Fr. Eugene Sta.Ana


4080 Hawk St, San Diego, CA 92103

This Sunday we hear in the Gospel how our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ brings back to life the only son of a widow mother, who, after many tears, turns joyful. St . Augustine compare this episode with the life of each Christian, who first is spiritually dead and then, through Baptism, becomes alive in Christ, for the joy of mother Church. Hear all this in Gregorian chant on Sunday 21 at St. Vincent de Paul Church.

Bishop Cirilo Flores (1948-2014)


The Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego and Chorus Breviarii San Diego are deeply saddened for the death of their Bishop, His Excellency Monsignor Cirilo Flores, who left us today. It is less than one year since we had the honor of holding the canopy while Bishop Flores walked in Eucharistic procession  through the streets of Little Italy. Our Bishop's  procession has come to a premature end. Now he does not carry the Blessed Sacrament any more, but sees Our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ  face to face. Let us therefore pray that He may grant his servant to rest with the just until we all meet again on the Last Day. Our prayers are also for Bishop Flores's family and for the Diocese of San Diego.
