St. Boniface (672?-754)
Boniface, known as the apostle of the Germans, was an English Benedictine
monk who gave up being elected abbot to devote his life to the conversion of
the Germanic tribes. Two characteristics stand out: his Christian orthodoxy
and his fidelity to the pope of Rome. How absolutely necessary this
orthodoxy and fidelity were is borne out by the conditions he found on his
first missionary journey in 719 at the request of Pope Gregory II. Paganism
was a way of life. What Christianity he did find had either lapsed into
paganism or was mixed with error. The clergy were mainly responsible for
these latter conditions since they were in many instances uneducated, lax
and questionably obedient to their bishops. In particular instances their
very ordination was questionable.

But you, be self-possessed in all circumstances; put up with hardship;
perform the work of an evangelist; fulfill your ministry. ~2 Timothy 4:1-8

"Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other
contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their
surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had,

her whole livelihood." ~Mark 12:38-44

Sometimes we can make a show of our religious practices and our generosity.
When we do, we are already rewarded.  When we give of our poverty, even
though the amount is small, it's a living out of our faith. God knows that
we're striving to live out our call.

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

I pray that I may not make a show of my giving.  I pray that I my quietly
and simply live out God's call in my life.
