    St. Robert Bellarmine,
    Please watch over my nephew Robbie as he is in CHEMO right now. I don't know how he got it and all I can pray for is that he gets better. Please continue to pray for our hopeless world and continue your prayers for my family.

    St. Robert Bellarmine, we admire your courageous stand on all the issues you addressed, not as one who was eager to win popularity but tuly as a man of God. You faced terrible heresies, spoke up for Galileo, nurtured saints, wrote copiously and tirelessly and gave us a true understanding of where political authority should come from. What a fantastic life you led, guided by the Holy Spirit and by a deep love of Christ. Help priests to implement the guidlines/revisions given to the universal Church about the Holy Mass by Pope Benedict. St. Robert give me the grace to utilise my most precious gift of "time" and "talent" in the service of the Lord and my neighbour. Bless my aged mother on her last pilgrimage, on her final journey to meet Christ and His blessed Mother. Give her children great commitment and cooperation in taking care of her. St. Robert also pray for healing and complete recovery for all children born with terrible physical and mental afflctions. Amen

    Would like more information on the exchanges between St. Robert and Galileo! very interesting. School textbooks have it all wrong on this topic, and I'm trying to find articles to send in to the teacher.

    I went to Bellarmine-Jefferson High school over 50 years ago. Msgr Keating felt that Thomas Jefferson must have been influenced by Robert Bellarmine in his political philosophy that all authority comes originates from God - not government.

    Although this information was given to us many times during my 12 years of education, I am now just trying to read information to see exactly how our founders were influenced during the founding of our country.
