Saint Katharine Drexel,
Pray for us.
Luke 9: 22-25

 

Self-denial is one of the most unpopular and misunderstood concepts of the Christian faith. The very word runs contrary to the spirit of the times. Ours is the age of self-expression. People everywhere are demanding the right to think their own thoughts, make their own decisions, and live their lives according to the desires of their own hearts. Jesus, the Son of God, did the will of his Father.
