Thought for the Day – 23 December
St John of Kanty is a typical saint: He was kind, humble and generous, he suffered opposition and led an austere, penitential life. Most Christians in an affluent society can understand all the ingredients except the last: Anything more than mild self-discipline seems reserved for athletes and ballet dancers. Perhaps we will realise that Christmas is a good time at least to reject self-indulgence. And do it for the salvation of YOUR SOUL and NOT for the size of your hips!
St John of Kanty, Pray for us!
