St Benedict of Sept Fonts aka St Benedict Joseph Labre.

St Benedict appears a puzzle to the catholic community in which he is venerated. The orthodox would, I believe, recognise his charisma as a Fool for Christ.

On this day lift before God:

  • All who are homeless.
  • All who do not know where their next meal will come from.
  • All pilgrims.
  • All whose health prevents them following their first calling.
  • All whom the world perceives as failures.
  • All who see themselves as failures.
  • All who are thought to waste their lives on God.
