I think all of us look back on our past with some measure of regret. Perhaps we’ve wasted time. Perhaps we wasted words. Thankfully, there’s time to make changes. To that end, the saints are excellent role models in leading productive lives in Christ.
Writing about St. Dominic, St. John Bosco tells us that whenever he talked about the day of his First Communion, he did so with great joy, saying, “That was the happiest and most wonderful day of my life.” Perhaps St. Dominic, who died at the tender age of fourteen, can teach us how to fall in love with the Eucharist as well.
