Thurs., 16 Nov.: St. Margaret: Mass at 7 PM
Born in the year 1046, St Margaret was the
daughter of the Anglo-Saxon royal house of
England but educated in Hungary, where
her family lived in exile during the reign of
the Danish kings in England. After the Norman
invasion in 1066, when her royal person
was still a threat to the new regime, she
was welcomed in the royal court of Malcolm
III of Scotland and soon afterwards
married him in 1069. Theirs was a happy
and fruitful union and Margaret proved to
be both a civilising and a holy presence.
She instituted many church reforms and
founded many monasteries, churches and
pilgrim hostels. She was a woman of prayer
as well as good works who seemed to influence
for good all with whom she came into
contact. She died in the year 1093.

Tues., 21 Nov.: St. Columban: Mass at 7 PM
Born in Leinster around the year 540, St
Columbanus became a monk in his youth.
In 585 his abbot at Bangor gave him permission
to go to Europe, taking several
companions. Three monasteries were established
in what is now France, but his inflexible
rule and defiant adherence to the
Celtic traditions aroused fierce opposition,
and in 610 the Irish monks were expelled.
St Columbanus and his companions then
crossed the Alps into Lombardy, in northern
Italy, where they established the great
abbey of Bobbio in 614. His monastic tradition
spread widely, until it was superseded
by the less stringent Benedictine tradition.
St Columbanus died at Bobbio in the year 615.

Wed., 22 Nov..: St. Cecilia: Mass at 10 AM
St Cecilia was one of the most revered martyrs
of the Roman Church, but the only
thing known for certain is that, at some
point in the second or third century, when
Christians were being persecuted, a woman
called Cecilia bravely allowed the Church
to meet in her house in Trastevere in the
city. Subsequently, the church erected on
that site bore her name. She is said to have
been martyred on this day in about the year
230. St Cecilia is honoured as the patron
saint of musicians.

Thurs., 30 Nov.: ST. ANDREW: Mass at 7 PM
Though St Andrew is named among the
apostles in the synoptic gospels, it is in St
Johnís gospel that most is learned about
him. St Andrew was a Galilean fisherman,
a follower of John the Baptist when Jesus
called him to follow Him. He then went to
find his brother Simon Peter and brought
him to Jesus. St Andrew became one of the
inner circle of disciples that included his
brother and the other pair of brothers,
James and John. Together they witnessed
all the major events of our Lordís ministry.
After Pentecost, tradition has St Andrew
travelling on several missionary journeys
and eventually being martyred by being
crucified on an x-shaped cross. He became
patron saint of Scotland because of a legend
that his relics had been miraculously
brought here in the eighth century.
