Saint of the Day

St. James of Cerqueto (14th century)
James was an Augustinian friar and hermit in Italy. A great preacher and miracle worker, his prayers led to the Augustinians wearing white habits in tribute to Mary.

Reflections from the Saints

He loves, He hopes, He waits. If He came down on our altars on certain days only, some sinner, on being moved to repentance, might have to look for Him, and not finding Him, might have to wait. Our Lord prefers to wait Himself for the sinner for years rather than keep him waiting one instant.
– St. Peter Julian Eymard

The fourth commandment reminds grown children of their responsibilities toward their parents. As much as they can, they must give them material and moral support in old age and in times of illness, loneliness, or distress. Jesus recalls this duty of gratitude.
