Monday of the Twenty-eighth Week in Ordinary Time
Saint of the day
Saint Kenneth (c.525-c.599)
There are many legends surrounding Saint Kenneth. According to one popular legend, he was born in Glengiven, Ireland. He became a monk and was ordained a priest. Kenneth spent some time in Ireland preaching, and then went to share the Good News in Scotland. He was an effective missionary, and built several monasteries in Ireland.
How do you spread the Good News to others? Are you sharing Jesus' message, or are you hiding your Christian faith?
Jesus, my model and my brother, sustain me as I try to courageously proclaim your Gospel message through my words and my life’s actions. (Taken from "Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens.")
