Feast Day of St. Francis Regis Clet
Each saint has great intercessory power on his or her feast day. Today, let us ask for the intercession of St. Francis Regis Clet as we read his words on the value of Obedience.“For eight years now I’ve wanted to be relieved of the pastoral burden and get into student formation; I’ve always found the ministry of the confessional a crushing load. I’ve written to Fathers Raux and Ghislain about this and they promised to appoint me to a house some distance from Peking where I’d be given charge of the young students, but I’ve almost given up hope of this; blessed be God! Obedience is better than any sacriﬁce. Hearing confessions is my cross; perhaps God wants me to carry it till death; may His Will be done.”
St. Francis Regis Clet, pray for us.
