St. Paschal Baylon: Focused on God

"Meditate well on this: Seek God above all things. It is right for you to seek God before and above everything else, because the majesty of God wishes you to receive what you ask for. This will also make you more ready to serve God and will enable you to love him more perfectly"
~ St. Paschal Baylon ~

Excellent homily from franciscanfriars:
Today is the Memorial of St. Paschal Baylon who was a humble friar who had an extraordinary focus on God as being the greatest treasure, above and before all else. He especially was known for adoring God in the Eucharist. Fr. Anglelo compares this to the useless and even harmful distractions that our high-tech, sensual world submerges us in. Ave Maria!

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
