Feast of St. Paulinus of Nola (355-431)
What I have I give thee; we will go to Africa, and I will give myself for your son."
--St. Paulinus of Nola to a widow
whose only son was taken into
slavery by the son-in-law
of a Vandal king
It is unlikely that God is asking me to give myself to redeem a slave; however, He is asking me to be generous to the point of self-sacrifice. How can I respond today?
St. Paulinus of Nola, pray for me.
