Thursday, first week of Advent (St. Francis Xavier)
Blessed St. Francis Xavier’s Day!
You can find his story here.
Readings specific to St. Francis Xavier:
I Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23 (Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel)
Psalm 117:1bc, 2 “Go out to all the world and tell the Good News”
+Mark 16:15-20 (The Great Commission)
I do not want
to work for pay
but for the joy
the delight of God
when souls are saved.
and no hardship
is too great
for this reward.
What reward am I seeking?
How much effort am I willing to put into it?
