The goal of a virtuous life is to become like Christ. So too, in marriage we are called to be Christ-like in our life together. Pope Benedict XVI in an address on the occasion of the Fifth World Meeting of Families notes that Christ shows us the way to be loving and to be merciful, “for the Lord makes it possible for us, through our human love, to be sensitive, loving and merciful like Christ.” May we be loving and merciful in all that we do today. Make a great day!
Today we recall the good life, gifts, and work of Saint Hyacintha of Mariscotti.
