Of Saints and Stars

antonio4

In this foggy place, the saints shine like stars in the sky [cf. Phil 2:15]… Saints are indeed stars, and Christ keeps them under the sway of his Providence, so that they do not appear when they want to, but are ready for the time appointed by Him. And when they feel his command resound in their heart, they come out from their secret contemplation to face the tasks they are needed for.
Saint Anthony of Padua
