Uncle Eddy's E-mails -- April 24
Saint Benedict Menni,
Priest, O.H., Founder of the
Hospitaller Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
(entered heaven this day in 1914)
Maybe what your Chapter needs is something entirely new, a brand new project to help jar it out of the rut it seems to have fallen into. Why not organize something creative, fun, and substantial, maybe just for one day – like bringing a whole bunch of poor kids to an amusement park, all the COMPASS members acting as big brothers and sisters for the day. You could get local businesses to sponsor the activity, invite a local celebrity or two to come along, invite the press, make a big deal out it, plan it out well ahead of time, make it big... That could serve as some CPR for the Christian spirit of your fellow students who seem to have fallen into a funk of selfishness with the coming of spring. Come to think of it, that´s kind of what happened to today´s saint.
