St. Josaphat (1580?-1623)
In 1967, newspaper photos of Pope Paul VI embracing Athenagoras I, the
Orthodox patriarch of Constantinople, marked a significant step toward the
healing of a division in Christendom that has spanned more than nine
In 1595, when today's saint was a boy, the Orthodox bishop of Brest-Litovsk
(famous in World War I) in Belarus and five other bishops representing
millions of Ruthenians, sought reunion with Rome. John Kunsevich (Josaphat
became his name in religious life) was to dedicate his life and die for the
same cause. Born in what was then Poland, he went to work in Wilno and was
influenced by clergy adhering to the Union of Brest (1596). He became a
Basilian monk, then a priest, and soon was well known as a preacher and as
an ascetic.  For more, follow the link below:

For she is an aura of the might of God and a pure effusion of the glory of
the Almighty; therefore nought that is sullied enters into her. For she is
the refulgence of eternal light, the spotless mirror of the power of God,
the image of his goodness. ~Wisdom 7:22b-8:1

For just as lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the
other, so will the Son of Man be in his day.
But first he must suffer greatly and be rejected by this generation." ~Luke

When will the end come?  We'd really like to know.  But the best we can do
is live each day as if it is the last. We can get in right relationship with
God and those around us and stay that way. That's where the wisdom of God
leads us.  And sometimes we'll have to suffer and be rejected by this
generation.  But God will be with us through it all, and ready to welcome us
into His Kingdom.

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

I pray that I may get in right relationship with God and those around me.  I
pray that I may live each day as if it is the last.
