Feast of Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg
Good morning. From the beginning it was God’s intention that husbands and wives should function as a team, to complement and assist one another. “The LORD God said: It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suited to him.” Spouses are there for one another to be of help to each other, especially to help each other get to heaven. This is very important in light of today’s Gospel. Jesus reminds us in today’s Gospel that it is no cake walk getting to heaven, there will be challenges, but we must choose to go “through the narrow gate” and not all of us are “strong enough” to do this on our own. That is why God had in mind for us our spouse from all eternity, without whom you might not get to heaven. Let us take one another’s hand and help guide one another so we may all recline at table in the Kingdom of God. Today as we celebrate the feast of Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg and the Eve of the Feast of All Hallows, that is, All Saints Day let us remind ourselves to do what needs to be done toward staying on the path to holiness, always seeking relationships which will help us through that narrow gate. Make a great day!
Today we recall the good life, gifts, and work of Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg.
