Feast of St Romuald, Abbot (950? – 1027)


“Better to pray one psalm with devotionSt Romuald, Abbot and compunction than a hundred with distraction.” 

                                                       -St Romuald, Abbot




For Reflection:      

Do I isolate myself and concentrate on at least one prayer or Bible reading a day or do I mindlessly ‘say’ my prayers as routine?  St Romuald, pray for me to have devotion and compunction during my prayer time with the Lord.



“O eternal Trinity, You are a deep sea in which the more I seek the more I find, and the more I find, the more I seek to know You.  You fill us insatiably, because the soul, before the abyss which You are, is always famished; and hungering for You, O eternal Trinity, it desires to behold truth in Your light.  As the thirsty heart pants after the fount of living water, so does my soul long to leave this gloomy body and see You as You are, in truth.
