Who is Saint Casimir?

Casimir, born of kings and in line to be a king himself, was filled with exceptional values and learning by a great teacher, John Dlugosz. Even his critics could not say that his conscientious objection indicated softness. As a teenager, Casimir lived a highly disciplined, even severe life, sleeping on the ground, spending a great part of the night in prayer and dedicating himself to lifelong celibacy.

When nobles in Hungary became dissatisfied with their king, they prevailed upon Casimirโ€™s father, the king of Poland, to send his son to take over the country. Casimir obeyed his father, as many young men over the centuries have obeyed their governments. The army he was supposed to lead was clearly outnumbered by the โ€œenemyโ€; some of his troops were deserting because they were not paid. At the advice of his officers, Casimir decided to return home.

His father was irked at the failure of his plans, and confined his 15-year-old son for three months. The lad made up his mind never again to become involved in the wars of his day, and no amount of persuasion could change his mind. He returned to prayer and study, maintaining his decision to remain celibate even under pressure to marry the emperorโ€™s daughter.

He reigned briefly as king of Poland during his fatherโ€™s absence. He died of lung trouble at 25 while visiting Lithuania, of which he was also Grand Duke. He was buried in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Upon further reflection, for many years, Poland and Lithuania faded into the gray prison on the other side of the Iron Curtain. Despite repression, the Poles and Lithuanians remained firm in the faith which has become synonymous with their name. Let us turn to their youthful patron; Saint Casimir pray for your neighboring country Ukraine, its people and president and for Russia and its president that they may be reminded that peace is not won by war. May Christโ€™s peace penetrate the hearts and minds of Russian leadership and its soldiers. Our Lady Queen of Peace, pray for us

The modern life and busyness of daily living can weigh us down, leave us feeling disoriented, restless or tired. The things of this world will never deeply satisfy, truly only Jesus does. Battle back the weariness and the restlessness, live a set-apart life, by encountering Jesus at Our Lady of Mercy (OLM) through any of the following.
_____
P.S.
๐Ÿ™ Set aside time in silence with Jesus anytime during the week at the new Eucharistic Adoration Chapel; dial down from the busyness of life, and take a brief or long respite by having conversations with Jesus. Bring before Him whatever is on your mind and heart. Then, and most importantly, give the Lord the space to respond speaking to you in the silence.

He himself understood it well.โ€ Fallen human nature always attempts to define the meaning of life with something we can measure. That is what the presence of the moneychangers at the temple symbolizes. Their worldly activity in this most sacred place reveals their moral bankruptcy: they prefer riches to a relationship with God. But the commandments of the Lord โ€œare more precious than a heap of purest gold.โ€ They save us from such foolishness and bless us with โ€œthe foolishness of God.โ€

Every Friday in Lent, we journey together through the Stations of the Cross
Come join us! It's a beautiful way to journey and reflect on God's sacrifice and love for us. Or just come by at your convenience and walk the stations of the cross inside the narthex and if the weather is nice, you can also pray at the beautiful outdoor stations of the cross May God's grace be with you this Lenten Season.
