Message of the day

“The harvest is great and the laborers few”

The harvest is great and the laborers few. Rogate ergo! Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Prayer is the most effective means of winning new apostles. (The Way, 800)

Through the world still echoes that divine cry: 'I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were blazing already!' And you see: it has nearly all died out... Will you not help to spread the blaze? (The Way, 801)

There is a brilliant man whom you long to attract to your apostolate; there is another, a man of great influence; and a third, full of prudence and virtues... Pray, offer up sacrifices, and work on them with your word and example.--They don't want to come!--Don't...
