St. Magdalen of Canossa (1774-1835)
Wealth and privilege did nothing to prevent today's saint from following her
calling to serve Christ in the poor. Nor did the protests of her relatives,
concerned that such work was beneath her. Born in northern Italy in 1774,
Magdalen knew her mind-and spoke it. At age 15 she announced she wished to
become a nun. After trying out her vocation with the cloistered Carmelites,
she realized her desire was to serve the needy without restriction. For
years she worked among the poor and sick in hospitals and in their homes and
among delinquent and abandoned girls. In her mid-twenties Magdalen began
offering lodging to poor girls in her own home. In time she opened a school,
which offered practical training and religious instruction. As other women
joined her in the work, the new Congregation of the Daughters of Charity
emerged. Over time, houses were opened throughout Italy.

So they called them back and ordered them not to speak or teach at all in
the name of Jesus. Peter and John, however, said to them in reply, "Whether
it is right in the sight of God for us to obey you rather than God, you be
the judges. It is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and
heard." ~Acts 4:13-21

But later, as the Eleven were at table, he appeared to them and rebuked them
for their unbelief and hardness of heart
because they had not believed those who saw him after he had been raised. He
said to them, "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every
creature." ~Mark 16:9-15

The disciples of Jesus were people of integrity.  They didn't worry so much
about the honors of this world as they did about being true to God and His
call in their lives. The power of the Resurrection is unleashed and many
more begin to believe as the Eleven "Go into the world and proclaim the
Gospel to every creature."

I pray that I may be more concerned with following God's call than I am for
the things of this world. I pray that I may use the Lord's risen presence in
me to proclaim the Gospel in my life.
