' Is there anything better on earth than gentleness? If there were, Jesus Christ would have taught it to us. But Jesus has given us only two lessons. "Learn from me" he said, "for I am meek and humble of heart." ~~~ St. Francis de Sales Chantal, Patterns Saint, St Francis, Desales, St. Francis De Sales, Francisco De, Catholic Faith, Catholic Inspiration, Favorite Saint
Catholic nuns were the first feminists, earning Ph.D.’s or working as surgeons long before it was fashionable for women to hold jobs. As managers of hospitals, schools and complex bureaucracies, they were the first female C.E.O.’s. They are also among the bravest, toughest and most admirable people in the world. In my travels, I’ve seen heroic nuns defy warlords, pimps and bandits.

This is why it can be hard to understand Christians sometimes. True, feet-sitting followers of Jesus Christ operate on a totally different framework, one wherein you have to believe it before you see it. For many of us, the things we’ve seen, prevent us from ever going back.

O My God, When I look into the future, I am frightened, But why plunge into the future? Only the present moment is precious to me, As the future may never enter my soul at all. It is no longer in my power to change, correct or add to the past; For neither sages nor prophets could do that. And so what the past has embraced I must entrust to God. O present moment, you belong to me, whole and entire. I desire to use you as best I can... St. Faustina Prayer

St Peregrine is the patron saint of cancer patients. Share him with those who need him, and the novena prayer attached to this pin too. Pray. Trust. St Peregrine, pray for us!
St. Peregrine, the patron of cancer patients. He was born in 1260 to an affluent family. He lived a comfortable life as a youth, & politically opposed the papacy. After he experienced the forgiveness of St. Philip Benizi, he changed his life, joined the Servite order, & was ordained a priest. He was widely known for his preaching, penances, and counsel in the confessional. He was cured of cancer, after receiving a vision of Christ on the cross reaching out His hand to touch his impaired limb.
Novena To St. Peregrine - (prayer for cancer cure) Glorious wonder-worker, St. Peregrine, you answered the divine call with a ready spirit, and forsook all the comforts of a life of ease and all the empty honors of the world to dedicate yourself to God in the Order of His holy Mother. You labored manfully for the salvation of souls. In union with Jesus crucified, you endured painful sufferings with such patience as to deserve to be healed miraculously of an incurable cancer in your leg by a touc

Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
