Second Thoughts of the Day – 17 August – The Memorial of St Jeanne of the Cross Delanoue (1666-1736)

Second Thoughts of the Day – 17 August – The Memorial of St Jeanne of the Cross Delanoue (1666-1736)

Saint Jeanne of the Cross —like many of us—found it difficult not to get caught up in the events and yearnings of the world.   She approached her religion as a checklist, rather than a force of faith and direction in her life, simply going through the expected motions and not opening herself to the benefits and riches.   Through the most unexpected of sources, Joan came to hear the call of God and embraced her mission of charity on earth and found she could do the work of armies!

She grew in faith in Divine Providence which never wavered and Divine Providence, never disappointed her.

Today we pray for the same openness to those around us and to the message and providence of God, the ability to believe that He is always in control and to rely only on Him —that we might serve Him humbly, obediently and faithfully to the betterment and salvation of mankind.
