“Speak to Him often of your business, your plans, your troubles, your fears — of everything that concerns you.” -- St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri

Prayer can be just that simple.  Speak!

"If obedience sends you to the kitchen, remember that the Lord walks among the pots and pans and that He will keep you in inward tasks and in outward ones, too." -- St. Theresa of Avila

Today we venerate St. Martha, the famous busy-body of the New Testament, perhaps a patroness for those of us caught up with all the chores and to-dos.  Yet, there is always times to pray, even "among the pots and pans," so don't be afraid to take little breaths throughout the day and pray, even if only for a minute.

"Life is only for love, and time is only that we may find God." -- St. Bernard of Clairvaux

St. Bernard teaches us well, then, of the meaning of our lives, and how we should use our time.  Let us waste, then, neither time nor our lives in vain pursuits, but in pursuit of the only thing that perdures.

A little homily for today, on the Lord's call to "come to a deserted place and rest a while."

“When we were little, we kept close to our mother in a dark alley or if dogs barked at us. Now, when we feel temptations of the flesh, we should run to the side of our Mother in Heaven, by realizing how she is to us, and by means of aspirations. She will defend us and lead us to the light.” -- St. Josemaría Escrivá

A blessed day to all the Carmelite family!

For this reason, let us read the Gospels often, and meditate upon them, so we know Our Lord ever more, and follow and imitate Him more perfectly.

“Few souls understand what God would effect in them if they should give themselves entirely into his hands and allow his grace to act.”  --St. Ignatius of Loyola

What holds us back?  Fear?  Do we not realize that God only desires our ultimate and greatest good?  It takes faith, yes.  But it also takes strength.  Pray for that strength.

"St. Lawrence of Brindisi teaches us to love Sacred Scripture, to become increasingly familiar with it, daily to cultivate our relationship with the Lord in prayer, so that our every action, our every activity, finds its beginning and its fulfillment in Him."  -- Pope Benedict XVI

Make time -- even if just a chapter or 10 minutes, to read some scripture.  Even just the Mass readings of the day.  See your spiritual life improve by refocusing on God and letting God guide your actions throughout the day!

Picture: Today's saint, Bl. Ceslaus of Poland, early Dominican friar, relation of St. Hyacinth.

Known for his holiness of life and preaching, he is often depicted in art with balls of flames.  He was in Breslau when the Tartars attacked.  He pleaded to God for deliverance from the enemy, and balls of fire began to fall from the sky, throwing the Tartars into confusion and retreat, thus saving the people.

Ok, I'm biased, but there's some of the best pumpkin bread and chocolates here in the gift shop! Of course, that also includes a religious goods store and bookstore. The chapel is open most days from early morning until early evening, with Adoration when the chapel is not in use for Mass.
