Welcome to Saint Bede Catholic Church!
We are a Catholic faith community proclaiming Christ's message in word and action. Further inspired by a call to the New Evangelization, we seek to be a community of disciples going forth and creating new disciples in our families, parish, and throughout greater Williamsburg.

Lord, I love your commands. — Psalm 119:97a Mass Readings: 1 Kings 3:5,7-12/Romans 8:28-30/Matthew 13:44-52 or 13:44-46 No Folly Needed In today’s reading from Kings, Solomon asks God for wisdom and God is pleased by the request. There are five Wisdom books in the Old Testament, each one providing sound advice on living. Sometimes, of an evening or a quiet afternoon, I flip to the Book of Sirach or the Book of Proverbs. I’ll read long passages, absorbing the nuances of wisdom and listening for calm instruction. My own actions have tended to be quite foolish at times. Reading and re-reading the Wisdom books keeps me grounded. I’m reminded I don’t want to be the “fool returning to his own vomit.” I want wisdom to sit at the gates of my house and my office and my car. I don’t want to leave trails of ruin in my wake. Like Solomon, I ask for wisdom. Prayer: Lord of Life, grant me wisdom. Today's meditation is from My Daily Visitor (Our Sunday Visitor) courtesy of your parish or diocese. Read More
