Consuming zeal for souls

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor,
serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer. - Romans 12:11-12
The Good Shepherd ~ Artist: Minerva Teichert
 “The offspring of this intensity of love
for our Eucharistic Lord
should be a consuming zeal
for the gathering of souls
into the fold of Christ.”
St Katharine Drexel

FEAST DAY - March 3

“And here is the passive way – to be filled unto the fullness of God. The passive way – I abandon myself to it, not in a multiplicity of trials, extraordinary penances accomplished, practices of great works – but in peaceful abandonment to the tenderness of Jesus, which I must try to imitate, and by being in constant union with His meek and humble heart."  - St Katharine Drexel
