Heavenly food of the soaring eagles...

 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

To the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience they added a fourth: 
to spread devotion to Christ’s passion among the faithful.

FEAST DAY - October 20


"It is an excellent and holy practice to call to mind and meditate on our
Lord's Passion, since it is by this path that we shall arrive at union with God. 
In this, the holiest of all schools, true wisdom is learned, for it was there
that all the saints became wise." -  From a letter written by St. Paul of the Cross
St Paul of the Cross, pray for us,
that we may embrace our crosses with courage!
