Saint Giuseppe Maria Tomasi


The 1st of January is the feast day of Saint Giuseppe Maria Tomasi C.R. (12 September 1649 – 1 January 1713), also known as Saint Joseph Mary Tomasi. He is the patron saint of the Catholic liturgy.

Saint Joseph Mary Tomasi lived between 1649 till 1713 and was born in Sicily to noble parents. He was drawn to God at an early age and was given a good Christian education. He entered the religious life in the Order of the Cleric Regular Treatine which was founded by Saint Cajetan, renouncing his inheritance and titles giving them to his brother. His parents also entered the religious life after their children grew up. Saint Joseph Tomasi was well known for his sanctity and became widely sought after. He was also well versed in multiple languages including Hebrew and converted his teacher, who was a Jewish Rabbi, to Christianity. He wrote on theology and his love for the Roman liturgy gained him the title of “Liturgical Doctor.” Some of his liturgical reforms he sought after were adopted in the 20th century. He taught catechisms to the children of his church and the congregants Gregorian chant. He died soon after being appointed a cardinal from pneumonia.

My children, as a mother, as the Queen of Peace, I am calling you to accept my Son so that He can grant you peace of soul - that He can grant you that which is just, which is good for you. My children, my Son knows you. He lived the life of man, and at the same time of God: a wondrous life-human flesh, divine Spirit. Therefore, my children, while my Son is looking at you with His eyes of God, He penetrates into your hearts. His tender, warm eyes are looking for Himself in your heart. My children, can He find Himself [there]? Accept Him, and then the moments of pain and suffering will become moments of tenderness. Accept Him, and you will have peace in [your] soul - you will spread it to all those around you - and this is what you now need the most. Heed me, my children. Pray for the shepherds, for those whose hands my Son has blessed. Thank you.
