Feast of Saint Eucherius

Good morning. Everyday we encounter situations which might test our faith, and there are days certainly which without our faith we might find ourselves led to despair. There seems to be an ever increasing amount of challenges to the faith these days and like Saint Eucherius, whose life we join together to celebrate today we might be asked to stand-up for our faith.

 Sometimes despite our faith, we don’t always experience the peace we are looking for, and there are times we feel all alone in the face of the difficulties we are facing. There are many different situations in life that challenge our faith. It is during these times we must like the father of the young boy in today’s Gospel ask for help: "Lord, I do believe. Help my unbelief."

As married couples it is important for us to be attentive and listen to our partner, and to be there for one another as a coach, to encourage and offer assurance, and to seek God’s help, especially when facing uncertain times. Praying together offers an opportunity to share openly each other’s struggles and uncertainties. If one is looking for a ‘soul-mate’ then joining one another in their journey with God is certainly the place to find them. Keep in mind that the couple that prays together, stays together.

Today we recall the good life, gifts, and work of Saint Eucherius.
