Bl. Miguel Pro was a Jesuit priest with a serious backbone. Although public worship was banned in Mexico at the time, that didn't stop Padre Pro from preaching and celebrating Mass, sometimes in disguise. Although sentenced to death by firing squad, he did not go down quiety - instead shouting 'Viva Cristo Rey!' ('Long Live Christ the King!')⁣

In honor of his feast earlier this week, we pray this prayer: ⁣

We are so grateful for the immense blessings of this community and to have been able to witness its growth over the years, by God's grace. 

From our Denver Catholic family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving! 🍁
Almost exactly 100 years ago, on the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1918, a woman, a former slave, died in Denver. 

This apostle of the Sacred Heart, spreading devotion across the city, was the first lay Catholic to lie in state as hundreds visited her body to honor her works of charity. Friends had to help bury her, because she had given away her burial plot to a poor man. 

This woman is now on her way to becoming a canonized saint, with the first steps of the process complete and sent to the Vatican. Allow us to introduce you to Servant of God Julia Greeley! She is now buried in the Cathedral, so we can venerate her relics. 

What else do you know about Julia Greeley? Let us know below!

Servant of God Julia Greeley, pray for us!
A woman born to royalty in England, St. Margaret of Scotland never let her life in the courts sway her away from her devotions. In fact, after marrying King Malcolm of Scotland in 1070, she even influenced the king to act in accord with his faith and to become a virtuous king.⁣
⁣
As queen, St. Margaret had much influence on the Church and liturgy in Scotland and was constantly in service to those less fortunate in her kingdom. Her chapel still stands in Edinburgh Castle in Scotland, and is the oldest building in the city.⁣

In honor of her feast day earlier this week, we pray this prayer:⁣

Join Catholic Sports and the priests of the Cathedral Basilica for "Pints with a Priest". These events are a chance to come together in fellowship and discuss topics relevant to growing in relationship with Christ. 

Pints with a Priest will be held every other third Sunday of the month, and this Sunday's priest, Fr. John-James Arcidiacono, will be presenting a talk called "Living in Thanksgiving: a Key to Discerning God's Will." 

Prepare for Thanksgiving with this talk focused on gratitude. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss with friends, too!

This event will begin after the 6:30pm Sunday Mass at the Cathedral (approximately 7:45). Drinks will be available by donation. The event will be held in the Cathedral basement, and you can enter through the doors by the rectory off of Logan St. Hope you'll join us!
