St. Januarius (d. 305?)
Little  is known of Januarius's life. He is believed to have been martyred
in the Diocletian persecution of 305. Legend has it that after Januarius was
thrown to the bears in the amphitheater of Pozzuoli, he was beheaded, and
his blood ultimately brought to Naples.  For more, follow the link below:

Many things can distract us from taking the word of God into ourselves and
allowing it to take root and grow.  We can guard against them with all our
heart.  We can "come with joy into the presence of the Lord," take His word
into ourselves and let it grow!

I pray that I may avoid anything that keeps me far from the Lord.  I pray
that I may take His word into myself and let it grow and bear fruit!
