Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. Pius ( Padre Pio) and St. EunanSeptember 23rd, 2014
God is pleased when we are just in our dealings with others and are upright in our way of life. Such an attitude influences others. They notice how we live our lives and are encouraged to do the same. Actions speak more loudly than words and God is pleased with our efforts.
Today is the feast of St. Pius (Padre Pio) who died 23rd September 1968. He was a Capuchin friar, stigmatist, confessor, and friend of all who suffer. Also today we celebrate the feast of St. Eunan (Adomnán) who was born in Donegal 624 and died in 704. He became a monk in Iona and was chosen abbot there in 679. One of his writings is the life of Colum Cille.
