Today we celebrate Saint Scholastica. Pope Saint Gregory the Great passed on a great story to us about her and her twin brother, St. Benedict.
Pope Saint Gregory shared this beautiful and important story not to criticize the rules and structure of Christian life, but rather to get to the heart, to the meaning of it. God is love.St. Scholastica could do more because she loved more.
In our busy, hectic, often frenetic world, this insight of Pope St. Gregory is key for our families. Don’t get lost in the pressure and running around. Rather, look for the God who is love and find him in the daily acts of loving that He asks of you.
Taking some moments to pray together in the home will really help you to see Him. Look for the God who is love and find him in daily acts of loving.
