Today we celebrate the feast of Bl. Oderic of Portunaone who was a Franciscan priest who traveled all the way to China to preach the Gospel in the early 1300's. Thus he lived the message in the Catechism on Paragraph 74 which teaches that God wants all men to be saved. This underscores today's Gospel where Our Lord says: The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few.  Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth labourers into his harvest. Let us remember to pray for more missionary priests to reap this great harvest. Ave Maria! Bl. Oderic of Portunaone - Mass: EF, - Readings: 1st: 1th 2:29 - Gsp: mat 9:3538 To Download Audio go to
