Heavenly food of the soaring eagles...

 The Lord's Day is the lord of days... 
but today also remembering... 
St Paul of the Cross

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, 
rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, 
and overflowing with thankfulness. - Colossians 2:6,7

"Be special adorers of the Divine and Blessed
Sacrament of the Altar, which is the heavenly food
of the soaring eagles, that is, of the souls advanced
in holiness… and thank Him unceasingly 
for having left us such an infinite Treasure."

St Paul of the Cross
Priest, Mystic, powerful teacher/preacher
Founder - Passionist Order
To the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience they added a fourth: 
to spread devotion to Christ’s passion among the faithful.

"When you are alone in your room, take your crucifix,
kiss its five wounds reverently, tell it to preach to you a little sermon,
and then listen to the words of eternal life that it speaks to your heart;
listen to the pleading of the thorns, the nails, the precious Blood.
Oh, what an eloquent sermon!" - St Paul of the Cross
St Paul of the Cross, pray for us,
that we may embrace
our crosses with courage!
