Thought for the Day – 12 June

There are some individuals of selfless heart who find little satisfaction in life unless they give of themselves continually and without reservation.   St John of Sahagun was one such person who repeatedly divested himself of honours and privileges in order to gain the inheritance of eternal happiness.   In doing so, he enriched the lives of others by his word and example as well.

A great many striking miracles have been recorded while he was alive, at his tomb following his death and remotely by the simple invocation of his name.   We remember today, the legacy that St John leaves us with:  a tireless and self-sacrificing call of accountability to our Christian sisters and brothers.   St John never backed away from helping those in need, either through charity and self-sacrifice, or through the more difficult pointing out of areas in need of improvement in the lives of those he encountered.   As members of the Mystical Body of Christ, we are called to do the same, providing support and encouragement to our brothers and sisters but also by gently illuminating the sin that creeps into our lives and the lives of others, so that we may confront and eradicate them.   Not an easy task when we have to point out the error of a friend – courage dear heart – go forth and be not afraid!

St John of Sahagun, pray for us!

We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
