I was fortunate enough to see St. Paul of the Cross' bronzed body and the tiny room he spent the last years of his life in while I was in Rome last October.

What a holy man.

Here's a picture

A very good advice, Seminarian Matthew. Btw. is seminarian used as a title as with e.g Fr?

Typically most people don't use "seminarian" as a title. I use it, though, so that people know immediately that I am a seminarian.

I'm praying for you and have placed you in our blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart. Please lift up in prayer a seminarian that I am helping to sponsor from Eastern Europe. You may want to also pray for another young man from India who left the seminary, who I was also helping to sponsor.

St. Paul of the Cross's thought on anger is really striking. The picture certainly helped to bring it home. Thank you, Matthew.

God love you and yours.

M. Smith
