Saint of the Day

St. Mary Magdelene (1st century)
Mary Magdelene was a horrible sinner who had seven demons exorcised from her by Jesus. She was present at His Crucifixion, and at His empty tomb. After the Ascension, she lived as a contemplative in a cave in France, where her only food was the Eucharist, given to her daily by angels. She died when she was 72.

Reflections from the Saints

Love tends to union with the object loved. Now Jesus Christ loves a soul that is in a state of grace with an immense love; He ardently desires to unite Himself with it. This is what Holy Communion does.
– St. Alphonsus Liguori

Life in Christ: Catechism #2344

Chastity represents an eminently personal task; it also involves a cultural effort, for there is "an interdependence between personal betterment and the improvement of society." Chastity presupposes respect for the rights of the person, in particular the right to receive information and an education that respect the moral and spiritual dimensions of human life.
