Feast of St. Pius V 

John 14:21-26 

Jean Vanier wrote: “To be in communion means to be with someone and to discover that we actually belong together. Communion means accepting people just as they are, with all their limits and inner pain, but also with their gifts and their beauty and their capacity to grow. To love someone is not first of all to do things for them, but to reveal to them their beauty and value. To love someone is to reveal to them their capacities for life, the light that is shining in them.” Together we are the Body of Christ.
