Fire can either destroy or purify, said Archbishop Gabriel Montalvo, papal nuncio to the United States, on June 19, 2003. Citing Mother Teresa of Calcutta and two American saints, St. Frances Cabrini and St. Katharine Drexel, as examples of "religious zeal and unbending fidelity," he said, "They show us that in the worst and most difficult of times they refused to sit idle or to retreat to a place of isolation or seclusion. Nor would they quit or give up the fight to which they had been called.

"The Lord challenges our faith to do something new, precisely when
so many things are collapsing in the Church." ~ St. Arnold Janssen

Ready for a new dawn?
Let your hearts take comfort, all who hope in the Lord. (Ps 31:25)
