Never a Stranger

Reflect

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.


Pray

Saint 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.


Act

Offer a smile or other kindness to someone with whom you struggle to connect. You might be surprised by the smile returned to you.
