Today is the 110th birthday of Venerable Patrick Peyton!
Patrick Peyton came from humble beginnings and grew to be an international success. He experienced God through prayer and helped others experience God. This week, as we celebrate his birthday, his mission, and his vision, we are fortunate to have the leaders from India visiting us at the Father Peyton Center. This shows that we are not only a local mission, but an international one.
Today’s reading invites us to love without fear. Open wide the doors for Christ, as we open our hearts to visitors. When we walk with Jesus, fear vanishes from our life and we find peace.
How can we better imitate Jesus? Mary?
Let us continue to love and propagate the mission of Father Peyton to support families. Amen.
