Blessed Caesar de Bus (1544-1607)
Like so many of us, Caesar de Bus struggled with the decision about what to
do with his life. After completing his Jesuit education he had difficulty
settling between a military and a literary career. He wrote some plays but
ultimately settled for life in the army and at court. For a time life was
going rather smoothly for the engaging, well-to-do young Frenchman. He was
confident he had made the right choice. That was until he saw firsthand the
realities of battle, including the St. Bartholomew's Day massacres of French
Protestants in 1572. He fell seriously ill and found himself reviewing his
priorities, including his spiritual life. By the time he had recovered
Caesar had resolved to become a priest. Following his ordination in 1582, he
undertook special pastoral work: teaching the catechism to ordinary people
living in neglected, rural, out-of-the-way places. His efforts were badly
needed and well received.

God exalted him at his right hand as leader and savior to grant Israel
repentance and forgiveness of sins. We are witnesses of these things, as is
the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him. ~Acts 5:27-33

The Father loves the Son and has given everything over to him. Whoever
believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not
see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him. ~John 3:31-36

The power of the Holy Spirit is *awesome,* and God has given it to those who
obey him. We know how much God loves us, in giving us His Son Jesus.  We can
do what is natural ... obey Jesus ... and we'll have eternal life!

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

I pray that I may appreciate and use the power of the Holy Spirit.  I pray
that I may always obey Jesus and be grateful for the gift of eternal life!
