Easter Friday

Tintoretto 'Christ at the sea of Galilea'

"Cast the net in the right side of the boat, and you will find some". So Simon Peter went aboard, full of large fish, a hundred fifty-three of them (St John 21:6, 11)

In spite of my humbleness, I would like to enlighten other souls as did the Prophets and the Doctors of the Church. My vocation is to be an apostle...I want to travel the earth and preach in your name and lift up your glorious cross to the unfaithful. However, my Beloved, I will not be satisfied to do just one such mission. At the same time, I would like to proclaim your Gospel to all corners of the earth, even to the most secluded places (St Therese, The Story of a Soul).
