St. Cajetan — Confessor August 7

St. Cajetan was the first to introduce the Forty Hours Devotion as an antidote to the heresy of Calvin. He had a most tender devotion to our Blessed Lady. On Christmas Eve she placed in his arms the Infant Jesus. At his death our Lady came to take his soul to heaven.

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they labor not, neither do they spin; but I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. — Gospel

The Imitation of Christ
Thy abode must be in heaven, and thou shouldst look upon all earthly things as it were in passing.
When St. Cajetan lay dying our Blessed Lady appeared to him. In profound veneration he said: “Lady, bless me!” Mary replied, “Cajetan, receive the blessing of my Son, and know that I am here to reward the sincerity of your love, and to lead you to paradise.”
Love and devotion to our Lady is a sign of predestination. Are you faithful to the devotion of the “Three Hail Mary’s”?
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
