24th Saturday in Ordinary Time
St. Padre Pio
In the first reading this morning, St Paul tells Timothy (and us) “to keep the commandment without stain or reproach.”
In the Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples (meaning us) to “bear fruit with perseverance”.
Today’s saint, Padre Pio, tells us how to keep the commandment and bear fruit. He said: “Practice the little virtues which pertain to your littleness – patience, tolerance with your neighbor, humility, affability, bearing your imperfections, and many others”.
St Padre Pio, pray for us!
