ST PHILIP NERI – founder of the Oratorians, was often involved in quarrels. One day he decided that this tendency must stop, once and for all. He ran to the chapel, fell prostrate before the statue of Christ and begged the Lord to free hinm fron anger. More hopefully now, he walked out of the chapel. The first person he met was a brother he liked, but for the first time this brother was unpleasant towards him. Now red with rage , he met another of the brothers, with whom he had also (as in the first encounter) always had a cordial relationship. But this brother also spoke to Philip in a gruff way. Philip, in despair, ran back to the chapel. Again he fell down in front of the statue, and pleaded, ‘O Lord, did I not beseech you to free me from my anger?’ And the Lord replied,’Yes Philip. And for this reason, I am multiplying the occasions for you to learn!’

ALBERT EINSTEIN –‘Whoever is devoid of the capacity to wonder, whoever
remains unmoved, whoever cannot contemplate or know the deep shudder of the soul in enchantment, might just as well be dead for he has already closed his eyes upon life.’

BLESSED-be thou, O God, who hast made my body to be a temple for thy Holy
Spirit.
