Daily Thoughts From St. John Baptist de La Salle

Reposted from Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

St John Baptist De La SalleBack when I was teaching in De La Salle- College of Saint Benilde, I went in search of the writings of St. John Baptist De La Salle, for whom the school was named. His writings are not well-known to many. And upon finding some of them, I realize why this is so: a lot of his letters had to do with the day-to-day activity of the brothers in his order. On the surface of it all, his words were about mundane things. Nevertheless, his spirituality shines through precisely because it deals with the mundane.

One website I found recently: Daily Thoughts From St. John Baptist de La Salle has collected St. De La Salle’s thoughts and placed one thought, one quote per day for the entire year.

Brother Patrick Tierney F.S.C., took all excerpts from St. La Salle's writings, and added headings and scripture quotes. It’s a lovely way to introduce yourself to the saint’s writings.
