Saint John De Brebeuf and Companions, Martyrs

October 19

“People change both for better and for worse. We are alternately encouraged and saddened by seeing the changes in people every day. We are cheered by people who live good lives and saddened when people wander away. That’s why the Lord did not promise salvation to those who begin well but rather says, ‘Whoever perseveres to the end is the one who will be save’ (Mt. 10:22).”

Sermon 51,1
