Feast of Saint Claude de la Colombiere

Good morning. Reach out, reach out and touch someone. This AT&T commercial which graced our TV screens and the sides of buses in the late 70’s offers much wisdom for married couples. The simple gesture of holding our partner's hand or cuddlng serves to build trust between us. Reaching out to our partner in a nonsexual way provides a sense of comfort and connectedness between us. Jesus in today’s Gospel demonstrates how His love provides healing for a blind man in a small town in Galilee, and Saint Claude, whose life we commemorate today touched many lives in his service to others. Let us imitate the life of Saint Claude through reaching out to others in service.  Let’s strengthen our marriage by reaching out and touching our spouse today. Cuddle-up! Make a great day!

Today we recall the good life, gifts, and work of Saint Claude de la Colombiere.
