Saint of the Day
St. Batholomew of Farne (12th century)
To avoid an arranged marriage, Bartholomew wandered Europe; he had a conversion experience along the way. When he returned to England, he joined a Benedictine monastery and lived in a cell for the remaining 41 years of his life.

St. Therese of Lisieux Speaks
True charity consists in putting up with all one's neighbor's faults, never being surprised by his weakness, and being inspired by the least of his virtues.

Scripture Verse of the Day
Philippians 2:13
For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

The Words of St. Escriva
The Will
It is not a matter of fulfilling your obligations in a hurry, but of bringing them to a finish without a pause, at God's pace.
(Furrow, #791)

Catholic Catechism #2304
Respect for and development of human life require peace. Peace is not merely the absence of war, and it is not limited to maintaining a balance of powers between adversaries. Peace cannot be attained on earth without safeguarding the goods of persons, free communication among men, respect for the dignity of persons and peoples, and the assiduous practice of fraternity. Peace is "the tranquillity of order." Peace is the work of justice and the effect of charity.
