Thought for the Day- 22 March – The Memorial of St Nicholas Owen S.J. (1562-1606) Martyr – “The Priest Hole Maker”
Saint Nicholas Owen possessed great faith and courage and he is highly respected for this, for he is a Saint. However, what also makes him memorable, is how he used a rather obscure skill and talent for the good of God. His ability to make hiding places ultimately became a tool of God for protecting the Church.
Saint Nicholas reminds us that any of our talents, regardless of how seemingly unusual or unimportant, can be put to good use for the good of God and our neighbour. What are your talents and how can you use them for good?
Dear God, please use me to do Your will. St Nicholas Owen, pray for us!
