December 10 - Saint John Roberts
A young man from Wales, John studied in the University of Oxford, and afterwards went to Paris to have a good time. There he found his faith and joined the Catholic Church. He became a Benedictine Monk in Spain and sometime later he fulfilled his dream of returning to England, where he encountered persecution, was arrested, and executed by hanging. The day before his execution, St. John Roberts gathered with other prisoners and demonstrated a great joy of knowing he was going to meet his Lord.
Can you find the joy of being with Christ even in the middle of difficulties? Are you easily depressed?
