St. Stanislaus

Today is the feast day of St. Stanislaus. From the Gospel for today:

Abide in me: and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me.

I am the vine: you the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.

If any one abide not in me, he shall be cast forth as a branch and shall wither: and they shall gather him up and cast him into the fire: and he burneth.

If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will: and it shall be done unto you. John 15: 4-7.

Let us abide in Christ, and pray for those you have cut themselves off from the vine. Let us pray for conversion and reconciliation. After all, that is the goal of the medicinal penalties that have been imposed on them. St. Stanislaus, pray for us!
