Imitating a generous and holy example

"Do you leave space to hear God’s whisper, calling you forth into goodness?  Friends, do not be afraid of silence or stillness, listen to God, adore Him in the Eucharist.  Let His word shape your journey as an unfolding of holiness."

 ~ Pope Benedict XVI

"Pause for a moment and think of the long hours which St. John Vianney spent in the beginning of his pastoral life, alone in his church before the Blessed Sacrament; think of the outpourings of faith and love of this great soul at the feet of his Master, and of the marvelous fruits of sanctity which he and so many others received as a result of these ardent Eucharistic prayers. There is no doubt that a flood of graces would descend on your families and on your country if more and more souls, enlightened and supported by the example of their shepherds, would become docile pupils in the school of the holy Cure of Ars."  

 Pope Bl John XXIII


Consider offering a HOLY HOUR every day during LENT 
in thanksgiving for the generous and holy example
of dearest Pope Benedict XVI and in anticipation
of the generous and holy example of his successor.
Expect a flood of graces!
