April 23 - Saint Peter Chanel
Only after his death was the purpose by which Peter Chanel had gone to a small island in Oceania fulfilled. It seems the poor man, while preaching there, did not have any apparent success. But, when he was martyred, people recognized the courage and holiness of this Marist priest and the entire island was evangelized. Are you seeking immediate success?
Are you discouraged when you don’t see the results of your efforts?
