St. Casimir Catholic Parish

Pray for us, especially for the 15,000 Catholics gathering today in Lansing that the Holy Spirir enter the hearts of each one of us and leads us to share the Good News with others to strengthen and grow our Church.Blessed Feast of St. Thomas of Villanueva!

St. Thomas of Villanueva was a Spanish, Augustinian bishop during the 16th century. He studied at the University of Alcala, earned a licentiate in theology, and became a professor there at the age of twenty-six. He declined the chair of philosophy at the university of Salamanca and instead entered the Order of St Augustine in 1516. Ordained in 1520, he served as court chaplain to Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. He dispatched the first Augustinian missionaries to the New World and they helped evangelize much of modern-day Mexico. Thomas was appointed as archbishop of Valencia in 1544. He held the post of grand almoner of the poor, founded colleges for the children of new converts and the poor, organized priests for service among the Moors, and was renowned for his personal holiness and austerities. While he did not attend the sessions of the Council of Trent, he was an ardent promoter of the Tridentine reforms throughout Spain. (Source: "The Catholic Encyclopedia")

St. Thomas of Villanueva, pray for us!
