Saint Alphonsus Rodriguez – October 30

Wisdom Wed

“As love is paid for in love, I must imitate Him, sharing in spirit all His sufferings.  I must consider how much I owe Him and what He has done for me.  Putting these sufferings between God and my soul, I must say, ‘What does it matter, my God, that I should endure for your love these small hardships? For you, Lord, endured so many great hardships for me.'”

~ St. Alphonsus Rodriguez

Saint John of Capistrano – October 23

Wisdom Wed

“Those who are called to the table of the Lord must glow with the brightness that comes from the good example of a praiseworthy and blameless life. They must learn from the eminent teacher, Jesus Christ…“You are the light of the world” (see Matthew 5:14).  Now a light does not illumine itself but instead it diffuses its rays and shines all around upon everything that comes into its view.

~ St. John of Capistrano

Saint Gerard of Majella – October 16

Wisdom Wed

“Be courageous, do not be cast down.  Trust in God and hope that He will grant you every grace. Do not rely on yourself, but rather on the Lord, and if you imagine that all is calm, then be assured that the enemy is quite near.  Do not put too much confidence in peace, for in the midst of rest war may break out.”

~ St. Gerard of Majella

Monthly Meditation – OCTOBER

“Make an effort to radiate joy, which is the fruit of the Spirit and a characteristic mark of the kingdom of God.  God is joy.  We have no reason to be unhappy.  Christ, wanting to share his joy with the disciples, prayed that ‘my joy may be in you and your joy be complete.’ Jesus must have radiated joy and you should do the same, in your eyes, attitude, the way you walk, the way you listen, and your whole being.”

~ Saint Theresa of Calcutta

For reflection:

  1. Would others say you are joyful?  Would you?
  2. In what specific ways do I radiate joy?
  3. When I speak of my relationship with Christ, can people sense the joy you have in loving him?
