3rd OCTOBER: ST GERARD OF BROGNE +959
“The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; by the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes” (Mt 21:42).
When evil thoughts come into one’s heart, (it is best) to strike them at once on the rock of Christ and to confess them to one’s spiritual advisor.
And never to despair of God’s mercy.
Glorious St Gerard, by restoring the monasteries, you nurtured faith. Let me nurture faith from its first spark.
