Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila 
(Feast Day October 15)

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things pass away:

Patience obtainsall things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;

Our Lady of Fatima and the Miracle of the Sun
In 1917, Mother Mary appeared to three young children in Fatima, a small village in Portugal. Her first appearance was on May 13 and she asked them to pray the Rosary daily for the conversion of sinners. Her last appearance was on October 13 and she identified herself as ‘Our Lady of the Rosary’ and a great miracle happened when the sun danced before thousands of people!

What is the Mission of My Life? Wisdom from St. John Henry Newman

 The Mission of My Life

God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.

St. John Henry Newman (Feast Day: October 9th)
