Saint Gabriel Possenti was devout, cheerful, humble, and ordinary. He does not have any extraordinary miracles or events attributed to him. Saint Gabriel reminds each one of us that we can be saintly every day through our words and actions. Spend a few quiet minutes with the Lord. Ask him to help you find the path that will lead you to holiness.
Dear God, I can think of many words to describe myself, but I would be nervous to include "holy" on the list. I always thought that "holy" meant “perfect,” but now I know that is not true. Help me to find the path that will lead me to the holiness you have planned for me. (Taken from “Good News Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens.”)
