Becoming Like Angels in Heaven     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

Guardian Angels     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

September 21 – St. Matthew. The apostle left us many written works, but we can sense that what they share is what they witnessed, what they saw and heard, especially the fire that puts us in the truth. God gives the other grace in a while, but he guides us through a grace of light. It’s up to us to study, to search for the truth, to reflect on it, and to discover its beauty. That’s prayer. Every grace begins by being a light, and we feel its warmth. (PS 249,3)

Our Lady of Sorrow     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

September 15 – Our Lady of Sorrow. The holy old man Simeon predicted that a sword would pierce her heart. We know what it’s like to suffer a lot, but do we understand the power of the word a sword? From this moment, Mary has more joys, she understand the prophecies and all that her divine Son had to suffer. She lives up to the smallest details of his passion and death, she was on her perpetual Calvary and took her title as Queen of Martyrs. (PS 106,1)

The Triumph of the Cross     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

September 14 - We need love – that is what makes crosses loveable. Only our Lord Jesus Christ can make crosses loveable. It is by loving Jesus, and Jesus crucified (cf. 1 Cor 2:2), said St. Paul, that we can love them – since we cannot separate the cross from Jesus crucified and his love. If we don’t love Jesus, we will not love the cross and penance… Take all your crosses, place them in our Lord, by making them so to speak melt in him, and you will begin seeing the cross as the most tender object of his love for you and for all his followers. Place the cross in the attractiveness of the love of our Lord, and it becomes beautiful and loveable –like green wood, that does not give heat, nor light nor warmth. But, placed in a blazing fire, it becomes the life of the fire. That is how the cross that had been an instrument for execution has now become loveable in the heart of our Lord. (Conference, March 12, 1861)
