Feast of Blessed James Alberione

Today Paulines the world over (that would include us!) celebrate the feast of our Founder, Blessed James Alberione. How fitting that this feast falls around Thanksgiving time. It provides us with one more reason to thank God for his providential care in raising up this heroic apostle, who poured out his life harnessing the powers of media to communicate the love that God has for each of us.

I never knew Fr. Alberione personally (he died in 1971), but I've witnessed his spirit alive in the many sisters with whom I've lived. They too spend themselves every day to proclaim God's gracious gift in Jesus, who is our Way, our Truth, and our Life. Now that's something to be thankful for!

Blessed James Alberione, pray for us!
