This great saint of modern times, who died only in 1968, was a Capuchin friar who bore the sacred Stigmata.

He said, ‘Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer. Have courage and do not fear the assaults of the Devil’.

May he pray for us today in all that troubles us, enabling us to have courage and not to be afraid. May God bless you this day.
