Feast of St. Peter Canisius, Priest and Doctor (1521 – 1597)

“…after daring to approach your most loving heart and to plunge my thirst into it, I received a promise from you of three parts: these were to cover my soul in its nakedness, and to belong especially to my religious profession. They were peace, love and perseverance. Protected by this garment of salvation, I was confident that I would lack nothing but all would succeed and give you glory.”

                                                           – St. Peter Canisius


For Reflection:

In preparation for the birth of Jesus, which part of the “garment of salvation” do I most need to put on? In what one way can I utilize it today?
