First Friday of Passiontide (St. John Baptiste de la Salle)

April 7, 2017

JMJ

Blessed St. John Baptiste de la Salle’s Day!

He is patron of teachers & school principals.

You can find his story here.

Readings:
2 Timothy 1:13-14; 2:1-3 (Pass on the message to faithful people who will teach others)
Psalm 1:1-4, 6 “Those who are victorious I will feed from the tree of life”
+Matthew 18:1-5 (Whoever humbles himself like this child is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven)

The price
of greatness

is much higher
than I ever dreamed.
It is much easier
to rise
than to descend
with regal grace.

But God provides!

Do I put my energy into conquering others or into conquering myself?
Do I draw on the grace God provides for the battle?
