Opening the door

Reflect

The widowed Alphonsus Rodriguez became a lay Jesuit and served as doorkeeper for the community’s residence on the island of Majorca. His welcome was so warm that people often took the ferry from nearby mainland Spain just to chat with him.


Pray

St. Alphonsus, your story makes me smile—
and reminds me that when things seem the darkest,
God's light is still shining.


Act

Give a smile and welcoming word to someone who needs it.
