How consoling the Eucharist...

 "If you lean with all your weight upon Providence,
you will find yourselves well supported. - St Theodore

"How consoling is the mystery of the Eucharist! 
If we knew how to appreciate it,
it would suffice to fortify and sustain us.

Is there anything sweeter than to have a friend
to whom we may at any hour
confide our difficulties and our pain?"

St Theodore Guerin
The Lord's Day is the lord of days... but ... 
Remembering St Theodore today also...
Feast Day - Oct 3
France ~ 1798 -1856
aka: St Theodora
Foundress:  Sisters of Providence 
of Saint-Mary-of-the-Woods

"Without distinction of persons, do good to all
for the love of God." St Mother Theodore Guerin

At the time of her beatification, Pope JPII 
pronounced the life of Mother Theodore Guerin 
as "a perfect blend of humanness and holiness".
