ZELUS (zeal)

Peter Chanel threw himself generously into his life as a priest, as a teacher in the college at Belley and as a missionary on Futuna. He went on even when things were not promising.

Jesus said, “Give and you will receive a full measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap; because the amount you measure out for others is the amount you will be given back” (Luke 6, 38). Lord, give us this same generosity in our mission, our community life or our family.
