This Week in History

This segment is in observance of the year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Servant of God Father Patrick Peyton, CSC.
March 25, 1990: Father Peyton writes, "My Magnificat". Three lessons he learned from his illness with tuberculosis: 1) Total dependence on my neighbor. We are one family, all one in Christ. 2) The precious gift of God's Mother, given to us with His dying breath on the cross. I learned the extraordinary power of her intercessory prayer, and 3) I quote that lesson in Our Lord's words, "Without me you can do nothing."
