April 16 - Saint Joseph Benedict Labre


He was the first of 15 children born to a family of modest farmers. He wanted to be a Trappist monk, but his parents were opposed. When he finally wanted to enter the monastery, he was rejected in several places. Then he decided to wander, although he was not a beggar, if someone gave Joseph alms, he would divide it among the poor.

Have you ever felt rejected? What difficulties must you conquer every day to follow what you consider is your way in life?
