October 19 – Saint Paul of the Cross

Saint Paul of the Cross

Blessed Redeemer, Saint Paul of the Cross had a devotion to Your Passion since early childhood and grew up adoring the Blessed Sacrament.  Before he was ordained, You set him to work forming a new religious community, the Passionists, with the mission of preaching the glory of Your cross.  I ask him to pray for my home, my parish, ministry teams, and other communities to which I belong.  O Jesus, may Your holy cross always remind us to make sacrifices for the sake of love.  Bind us together in service and unity.  Teach us to lead others to salvation and to reflect on Your Passion.  Saint Paul, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Paul of the Cross

Live in such a way that all may know that you bear outwardly as well as inwardly the image of Christ crucified, the model of all gentleness and mercy. >>

If we cannot spend much time at prayer, no matter: to act well is always to pray well. Be attentive to your duties, and at the same time be attentive to God by frequently purifying your heart in the immense ocean of divine love. >>

Entrust yourself entirely to God. He is a Father, and a most loving Father at that, who would rather let heaven and earth collapse than abandon anyone who trusted in Him. >>
