A good man is a prayer

"You must pray the prayer of action, which is the fragrant flower of the soul.

A good man is a prayer."

St. Catherine of Sienna

On this feast day of St. Joseph , the man picked by God to protect Our Lord and Our Lady, the patron of fathers...I pray for my husband, a good man whose life is a prayer in action. I believe my husband loves Jesus and Mary as much as St. Joseph did. His example inspires....

"Man's tragedy lies in the fact that he does not trust the Lord and rejects His will. Namely, man avoids God's will in order to fulfill his own will. By so doing, he sentences himself to torment, which our good Father did not intend for him."
(The Gift of Faith, pg. 105)

For more on St. Joseph and to enjoy a great blog....have you seen Catholic Mothers Online ? They are looking for guest writers.

Thanks ladies. If I didn't have such a spiritual leader for a husband and dear friends like you I'd be very lost. We need to pray to St. Joseph to touch the hearts of all the men and boys in our lives as our faith depends on it.

Renee - Yes, I am a bit over the top on Adam's voice, but I like it's unique sound. He stands our visually too but he could tone that down and focus on the music and that would be fine by me too.

So, whose your AI favorites?
