Saint of the Day

St. Bertilla Boscardin (1888-1922)
Born to a poor peasant family, Bertilla was simple and innocent, had little education, and was mentally slow. When she was sixteen, she joined a religious order, and after working in the convent's kitchen and laundry, she trained as a nurse. She cared for wounded Italian soldiers during World War I, and later became the supervisor of a children's ward.

Reflections from the Saints

He who fights even the smallest distractions faithfully when he says even the very smallest prayer, will also be faithful in great things.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2464

The eighth commandment forbids misrepresenting the truth in our relations with others. This moral prescription flows from the vocation of the holy people to bear witness to their God who is the truth and wills the truth. Offenses against the truth express by word or deed a refusal to commit oneself to moral uprightness: they are fundamental infidelities to God and, in this sense, they undermine the foundations of the covenant.
