Bl. Edmund Bojanowski

The Lord is so good!

I was in search of the Saint of the day and found that Bl. Edmund is also chosen for August 7. His story is so beautiful, his life a gift to Our Lord… His love for Our Lady was heroic as he was given a gift of serving others.

“Bl. Edmund Bojanowski loved God and loved man. He was a man of prayer. His love for people, demonstrated by heroic deeds, was born of deep union with God through prayer. He drew from it the strength to serve man. That love grew in him on his knees and later bore fruit. Through prayer his whole life became a ceaseless service to the needy, especially children. For him, God’s affairs were also human affairs, and love of God was love of man.”

Pope John Paul II

Thank God humbly for the grace of His holy inspiration. May the holy fire of God’s love glow more brightly and ardently in your heart so that neither difficulties nor anything in the world would lessen the zeal in your heart in this spiritual endeavor.” Encouragement of Blessed Edmund
