Saturday After Ash Wednesday, St. Casimir

March 4, 2017

JMJ

Blessed St. Casimir’s Day!

StCasimirStanding

He’s the patron of bachelors, kings, princes, single laymen, Lithuania (proclaimed by Pope Urban VIII in 1636), Poland and the diocese of Grodno, Belarus.

You can find his story here.

Readings:
Philippians 3:8-14 (I consider everything loss, that I might pursue Christ)
Psalm 15:2-5 “The just one shall live on Your holy mountain, O Lord”
+John 15:9-17 (Remain in My love by keeping My commandments)

The leaping, rushing flow of love
is bounded by the law
that gave us Christ,
in perfect unity
with God the Father’s Plan
to make us friends
not in the fickle sense
that drifts away
when life gets tough,
but with the grit
that perseveres
through thick and thin.

All other goods
are loss
compared with this.

Is my love bounded by eternal Truth (God’s commands) or by my changeable feelings?
How does my obedience to Christ compare to His obedience to His Father?
