Happy Birthday to the Pauline Family!

August 20:

Today is the feast of St. Bernard. Maybe you wonder, why is St. Bernard important to the Pauline Family? The answer is that this feast is the birthday of the Pauline Family! On this day in 1914, Bl. James Alberione began the Society of St. Paul, the first of ten religious congregations, secular institutes, and lay associations that he would found.

Bl. Alberione says about the Pauline Family, "You were born of the Eucharist. Your food is the Eucharist. Your spirituality is the Gospel lived in its entirety as explained by St. Paul. Your mother and model is Mary."

Happy Birthday, Pauline Family! :)
