🇮🇹 🇺🇸 There's no inventory at the store for saints with feasts being celebrated on Tuesday June 19th. But we're still doing a shout-out to a Saint of the Day. Saint Romuald was the founder of the Camaldolese order and a major figure in the eleventh-century eremitical asceticism. He said... "Better to sing one Psalm with feeling, than to recite a hundred with a wandering mind. But if you haven’t yet received the grace of singing from your heart, do not give up hope. Be constant in your practice, and one day He who gave you the desire for the prayer of the heart will give you that prayer itself." (*) excerpt from “Mystery of Romuald and the Five Brothers: Stories from the Benedictines & Camaldolese” by Thomas Matus. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Franciscan Media page says... "Christ is a gentle leader, but he calls us to total holiness. Now and then, men and women are raised up to challenge us by the absoluteness of their dedication, the vigor of their spirit, the depth of their conversion. The fact that we cannot duplicate their lives does not change the call to us to be totally open to God in our own particular circumstances." https://www.franciscanmedia.org/saint-romuald/
So... for a little bit of extra inspiration, stop by E.Rossi & Company to select a special saint's prayer card or statue.
Happy Feast Day St Romuald! (sorry we don't yet carry your statue).

“Go through life like a little child, always trusting, always full of simplicity and humility, content with everything, happy in every circumstance.” – St. Faustina -----------------------(So I had typed this long paragraph about how I've had the beautiful and amazing privilege to care for you this summer, but it all erased😢. Now that I think about it though, all that you need to know is that you've given my summer so much meaning, and I've truly been able to see our Perfect Lord's face and light in you. Thank you Lord for blessing this world with pure beautiful little souls. Thank you Lord for Julian. ❤️) #little#Saint#intheMaking
The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily
do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm.
If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.
Thérèse de Lisieux
I love building leaders. I just love it!
There’s something so powerful when a person discovers their calling and in this room I get a front row seat to that discovery process. We have single moms, recovering addicts, former felons, army reservists, ex-gang members, Vietnam veterans and Bible scholars all under one roof to answer the call on our lives.
It’s simply amazing to be apart of it all. #TheDeaconate
