-Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213

New saints are needed

January 12

“We need heralds of the Gospel who are experts in humanity, who know the depths of the heart of many today, who share in his hopes and joys, his worries and his sadness, and at the same time are contemplatives, in love with God. For this, new saints are needed.”
-St. John Paul II

Today’s Reflection:
God has given us life at this time to be the “new saints” and the “new evangelizers” who will proclaim His love to the world.

How is God calling you to fulfill this very mission in your own life?

Providing a Patron

February 24

February 24

Very well, I will be a saint. I will provide a patron for those who bear my name.

                                                                        –Blessed Dina Belanger

 For Reflection:

At age eight, Dina Belanger said this in response to a teacher who told her the Church had no St. Dina. Am I willing to “provide a patron” for those who bear my name? What positive step can I take today to make that happen?
