TAKE FIVE FOR FAITH: Daily renewal for busy Catholics 1/24/2012

Citing of the Week

"To what degree must we admit that the problem side of things is profoundly related even to what gives life in a particular situation? How many of us know someone whose very gifts are tied up with what makes them difficult at times?"

The great communicator
In 1923 Pope Pius XI proclaimed Saint Francis de Sales a patron saint of writers and journalists because he made extensive use of flyers and books in his work as a spiritual director and defender of the Catholic faith. De Sales, who served as bishop of Geneva from 1602 to 1622, was also a polyglot, known as a clear and gracious stylist in French, Italian, and Latin. He even developed a form of sign language in order to teach a deaf man about God and thus is also the patron saint of the deaf. There are many ways to communicate the glory of God to the world. What is your particular gift and how will you use it to spread the Good News?

TODAY’S READINGS: 2 Samuel 6:12b-15, 17-19; Mark 3:31-35 (318)
“Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”
