Self-Sacrifice

June 22

June 22

 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

 

For Reflection:

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.
