Let no-one despise your youth but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity….1 Timothy 4:12

REFLECTION – “The first lesson is that there can be great sanctity even in youth.   In other words, God is not only no respecter of persons, He is no respecter of angels.   The essence of sanctity is in the grace that He confers. … God gives His grace to whom ever He wishes, in what quantity He wishes and ours is to recognise His gift and not miscalculate. …There can be great sanctity in youth.”…Venerable Servant of God Fr John A Hardon S.J. from his writings on St Stanislausthe first lesson is that - fr john a hardon on st stanislaus - 13 nov 2017

PRAYER – Holy Father, I beg Your grace to achieve sanctity.   Grant me the wisdom to follow Your Son, the fortitude to persevere in all trails but most of all Holy Father, grant me Your grace to obtain eternal life.   Precious youth, St Stanislaus, please pray for us all , amen.st stanislaus - pray for us - 13 nov 2017 - no 4
