Reflection: Acts 13:15

Check out my podcast, Simple Diakonia, on Anchor!

“Brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say it.” (Acts 13:15)


Each of us can offer exhortations for the people. It is a grace that is not limited to the ordained or the religious. St. Catherine of Siena, Virgin and Doctor of the Church, gives us such confirmation. She was a lay person of great devotion and prayer. Her exhortations of peace brought about unification; her spiritual exhortations have transformed the lives of many.

Today’s Intention

Lord, thanks for the gift of St. Catherine of Siena. May our hearts, too, be bathed in flames of exhortation for the people. St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us.

Peace and Goodness
