Feeling Like a Stranger

Dutch-born Charles of Mount Argus (1821-1893) spent 35 years in Ireland and England, never really mastering the language. But the priest’s friendliness and healing gifts made him beloved by all.


St. Charles of Mount Argus,
I often feel like a stranger
in a strange land, even in my own family.
Help me to remember that I am never a stranger to God,
but a treasured, valued child.


Offer a smile or other gesture of kindness to someone with whom you struggle to connect.
