“St. Boniface of Mainz” (detail) by Cornelis Bloemaert

“Let us be neither dogs that do not bark nor silent onlookers nor paid servants who run away before the wolf. Instead let us be careful shepherds watching over Christ’s flock. Let us preach the whole of God’s plan to the powerful and to the humble, to rich and to poor, to men of every rank and age, as far as God gives us the strength, in season and out of season.” (St. Boniface, Bishop and Martyr)

The Memorial of St. Boniface, Bishop and Martyr (c.a. 675 – 754) is June 5.
