Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop & Martyr
For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” —Psalm 122:8
True forgiveness, according to Christ, is inextricably linked to relationships. Loving relationships are precious and built over a period of years. They mature as the people who are in them grow up spiritually. —Paula Huston, Forgiveness
Prayer of the Day
Jesus, please give me the courage to proclaim your Word, and in so doing to be a light, as Irenaeus was a light to the people of France. May his example of selfless obedience spark a desire in me to follow you more closely and to tirelessly pursue your will. Amen.
