Selections adapted from Fr. John J. Nacca's

"True Stories You'll Love and Remember"

St. Francies de Sales, having arrived in Rome, made reservations, in a hotel facing the Tiber, for himself and his helper. When he returned in the evening, he was surprised to find his helper quarreling with the owner, who, to gain more money, had rented the apartment to wealthy strangers in the meantime.

The saintly bishop ordered his man to stop arguing, pick up the baggage and help him find another hotel. They located a modest place on the other side of Rome.

They had just settled down when a terrible rainstorm broke out. The Tiber overflowed, and the first building flooded was the hotel from which they had been ousted. A considerable number died.

St. Francis de Sales' peaceful disposition saved his life.

Because our knowledge is limited, and the Lord is all seeing and all knowing, we should trust in Him that the things that happen to his faithful are intended for our good.

"Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy." (Mt. 5:7)

St. Paolino of Nola was so rich that his territories in France and Spain were like kingdoms.

At the age of 20, he gave everything to the poor to embrace the riches of heaven. He had many freed from prison who had been condemned there because of unpaid debts, which he paid himself.

The day when he had given absolutely everything away he called the hapiest day of his life. He became one of the most cultured and zealous of bishops.

Refresh your memory of a kind deed only by doing another one!

"This is the fasting that I wish: releasing those bound unjustly, untying the thongs of the yoke; setting free the oppressed, breaking every yoke; sharing your bread with the hungry, sheltering the homeless; clothing the naked when you see them, and not turning your back on your own." (Is. 58:6-7)

"Do unto others whatever you would have them do unto you. This is the law and the prophets." (Mt. 7:12)
