St. Eleutherius — Abbot September 6

St. Eleutherius was favored by God with the gift of miracles. He exorcised a child possessed by the devil. He also raised a dead man to life.

The just shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus. — Gradual: Psalm 61

The Imitation of Christ
Whilst thou hast time, amass for thyself immortal riches. Think of nothing but thy salvation; care only for the things of God.
Ideal
This saint raised a dead man to life and worked many miracles; nevertheless, when once he committed a slight fault of vainglory, he did public penance for it. It requires greater courage than we think (until we have done it) to acknowledge a fault at all; it requires more courage to acknowledge that fault among people who think very highly of us.

Try to catch yourself during leisure moments and note what your thoughts are. It will help you get to know what kind of person you are.
