February 15 St. Joseph of Antioch

Let us break our bread with the hungry, and let us bring the needy who is without roof into our house. Let us clothe the naked, and let us not despise those of our own flesh. When such fruits are born out of the earth, see how good it is. Let our light that lasts but for a time break forth. And as we pass from this lower fruit of action to the delights of contemplation, and obtain the word of life on high, let us appear like lights in the world, holding fast to the firmament of your Scripture.

-St. Augustine

 

We Hunger and Thirst for Holiness

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation: you make us hunger and thirst for holiness. Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation: you call us to true fasting: to set free the oppressed, to share our bread with hungry, to shelter the homeless and to clothe the naked.
