Saint of the Day

St. John Eudes (1601-1680)
John was a priest, missionary, and preacher who worked against Jansenism. He founded two religious orders, and wrote the first known book on devotion to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Reflections from the Saints

Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make his spirit, his devotion, his affections, his desires, and his disposition live and reign there. All our religious exercises should be directed to this end. It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly.
