The Gospel Weeklies are published by the Pflaum Publishing Group, part of the Bayard Inc. family of publishing companies worldwide. Bayard is sponsored by the Augustinians of the Assumption, a religious order founded by Venerable Emmanuel d’Alzon. Saturday, November 21 is the 140th anniversary of the entrance of their founder into eternal life. The Assumptionists share this digital icon created by Brother Blair Nuyda, A.A., and a prayer written by Father d’Alzon for perseverance in our vocations.The first vocation of all Christians is to love. The world today needs our love and kindness to help draw people to the light of Christ.
