Saint for the Day October 31st.

St. Alphonsus Rodrigues. (1531-1617)

Born at Segovia in Spain, he became a merchant and married, but lost his wife and children, and at the age of forty-four was received into the Society of Jesus as coadjutor and sent to Palma in Majorca.  From 1580 to 1604 he was doorkeeper of the college of Montesiòn.  In this office he edified the whole island.  A sonnet by G. M. Hopkins celebrates his humility.  He was Beatified in 1825 and Canonised in 1888.

Quote for Today.

‘To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive, and the true success is labour.’


(R. L. Stevenson)
