St. Anthony Claret (1807-1870) 
The "spiritual father of Cuba" was a missionary, religious founder, social
reformer, queen's chaplain, writer and publisher, archbishop and refugee. He
was a Spaniard whose work took him to the Canary Islands, Cuba, Madrid,
Paris and to the First Vatican Council.
In his spare time as weaver and designer in the textile mills of Barcelona,
he learned Latin and printing: the future priest and publisher was
preparing. Ordained at 28, he was prevented by ill health from entering
religious life as a Carthusian or as a Jesuit, but went on to become one of
Spain's most popular preachers.  For more, follow the link below:

Brothers and sisters: I, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a
manner worthy of the call you have received,
with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another
through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond
of peace; ...  ~Ephesians 4:1-6

If you are to go with your opponent before a magistrate, make an effort to
settle the matter on the way; otherwise your opponent will turn you over to
the judge, and the judge hand you over to the constable, and the constable
throw you into prison. I say to you, you will not be released until you have
paid the last penny."  ~Luke 12:54-59

Paul urges us to "live in a manner worthy of the call" we have received.
When we do so we are humble, gentle and patient. We strive to preserve
unity.  In our Gospel we are called to make and build peace.  When we have
differences, we are called to solve and settle them. Otherwise "your
opponent will turn you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the
constable, and the constable throw you into prison."  We can seek the Lord's
wisdom and strength to solve whatever differences we have peacefully.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may live in a manner worthy of my calling.  I pray that my
humility, gentleness and patience will help me solve any differences I may
have with those around me.
