An Easy Way to Become a Saint - September 4

Continued from yesterday...

Chapter 8. The Principal Duties of the Day

The Name of Jesus.

An easy practice that we urge our readers to adopt is to form the habit of repeating frequently the Holy Name of Jesus. Each time we say Jesus we offer the Eternal Father all the infinite merits of the Passion of Jesus Christ, in union with the Masses being said allover the world. We thus participate in these thousands of Masses.

There is no devotion so easy, none so infallible in obtaining for us God's richest graces.

It demands no time, for we can repeat the Holy Name hundreds and even thousands of times in the day - when dressing in the morning, when working, when walking, in our homes, in the streets, everywhere.

This practice gradually fills our hearts with peace and happiness; it delivers us from many evils and obtains for us more graces in a single day than we may otherwise hope to receive in a whole year...
