Founder of the Redemptorists, St Alphonsus had a great devotion both to the Holy Eucharist and to the Mother of God.

He said: ‘He who trusts himself is lost. He who trusts God can do all things. If we would completely rejoice the heart of God, let us strive in all things to conform ourselves to His divine will’.

By the grace of God and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin, may we seek the will of God this day, and have the grace to fulfil it in all our actions. May He bless you in so doing.
