Don’t miss the readings from the Book of Judges this week. They’re describing one of Israel’s worst times. I especially like the angel’s words to Gideon:  “Go with the strength you have.”  Words for us.

Interesting mix of saints this week. King Stephen of Hungary, John Eudes, Bernard and Piux X.

Kings, popes, presidents –our political leaders are important figures in society. We may forget they’re called to be saints as well as world figures. Always a danger we look on them as just political figures.

Bernard and John Eudes have left their gifts to us. See later this week.

    Dear Father Victor, I have to say it again: there’s no place like The Victor’s Place. Holy men of humble heart, bless the Lord.
