St. Bruno (1030?-1101)
This saint has the honor of having founded a religious order which, as the
saying goes, has never had to be reformed because it was never deformed. No
doubt both the founder and the members would reject such high praise, but it
is an indication of the saint's intense love of a penitential life in
solitude. He was born in Cologne, Germany, became a famous teacher at Rheims
and was appointed chancellor of the archdiocese at the age of 45. He
supported Pope Gregory VII (May 25) in his fight against the decadence of
the clergy and took part in the removal of his own scandalous archbishop,
Manasses. Bruno suffered the plundering of his house for his pains.   For

repented of the evil that he had threatened to do to them; he did not carry
it out. ~Jonah 3:1-10

We are called to listen to Jesus!  Still, there are many other things we
must do in order to live a good and healthy life.  Still, we need to make a
good place for God in our lives and in our day and give Him time to speak to
us. We can be involved in living our lives, but still be willing, like Mary,
to stop and listen to Jesus.

I pray that I may keep a healthy balance in my life.  I pray that I may make
time for God, and time to listen to Jesus.
