Quote of the day: 14 March

Kalinowski was already living a quasi-Carmelite life before he had even decided to join the Carmelites… Earlier in March [1874] Kalinowski had begun a novena to his patron St. Joseph and this reminded him to write to his parents and thank them, especially his mother, for inculcating in him a devotion to St. Joseph.
