MEMORIAL OF FIDELIS OF SIGMARINGEN, PRIEST, MARTYR
Born again to the same job

Lawyers are traditionally the butt of jokes for their ability to take any side of an argument. But many put their skills to use in the cause of justice. Saint Fidelis (d. 1622), nicknamed the Poor Man’s Lawyer, decided to speak out only for the sake of the gospel. He joined the Capuchins and persuaded many through his preaching, his kindness as a confessor, and his devotion to the sick. Consider how your words and actions today have the power to testify for or against the gospel you believe.

Today's readings:

Acts 11:19-26; John 10:22-30 (280).

“My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
