17th Thursday in Ordinary Time

“What is a vocation? It is a gift from God, so it comes from God. If it is a gift from God, our concern must be to know God’s will. We must enter that path: if God wants, when God wants, how God wants. Never force the door.”
— St. Gianna Molla


Meditation of the Day
“But what parent ever suffered so much for his son as Joseph for Jesus? All his sufferings were on His account, and were brought upon him because he was father to the Messiah. He was the first to suffer persecution for Him. The martyrs suffered because they were disciples of the Son of God, but Joseph paid the penalty of having been made father to the Incarnate Word. All, however, that he endured was joy unutterable to his soul, because it was for Jesus.”
— Edward Healy Thompson
