At Mass at Good Counsel Network's chapel on the 19th August the priest spoke about St John Eudes as it was his optional memorial. During Father's homily he made it clear that St John Eudes was a doubly appropriate saint for the day, as he is most well known for two works.
Firstly he was renowned for his support for priests who teach in seminaries (which was appropriate as Father himself currently teaches at Allen Hall).
Secondly he was well known for his work in evangelising/caring for fallen women, mostly prostitutes. As some of the pregnant women that we help have been living such lives it is good to have St John Eudes to intercede for us and for them.
