Saint of the Month

John Baptist de la Salle
April Saint of the Month
 
The saint of the month of April is St. John Baptist de la Salle. John Baptist de la Salle was born in France on April 20, 1651 into a powerful and wealthy family. He was ordained into the church as a priest. La Salle met Adrian Nyel who was establishing schools for poor boys, since in those days education was reserved strictly for the rich. La Salle had sympathy for their poverty, so he found five teachers, rented a home, and opened a school for poor boys. La Salle later came to check on the school to find that the teachers were cruel to the children, and they would spend their nights playing cards and drinking. La Salle decided that he wanted to train the teachers to be proper religious educators, and as he talked about the problems and tried to give the teachers a sense of self respect, they quit. Others took their places and grew in faith, prayer, order, and discipline under the leadership of La Salle. La Salle then gave away his fortune and dedicated his life to education. La Salle believed that the more religious a school was, the more successful it was. Religion was included in all subjects in his school, and catechism was taught to the boys. Teachers from other schools were jealous of the success of La Salle and tried to bring up law suits to ruin him. After suffering from several diseases, La Salle died on April 7, 1719. John Baptist de la Salle is the patron saint of teachers, school principals, and educators. La Salle is remember on his feast day on April 7.
Throw yourself into God’s arms. He will carry you when the road is rough.

                ~ John Baptist de la Salle

 

 

Hold prayer in high esteem. It is the foundation of all the virtues, and the source of all grace needed to sanctify ourselves and to discharge the duties of our employment
 
Stir up your trust in the infinite goodness of God. 

Give honor to your Creator by leaving the care of your person in the hands of God.

Don’t be troubled about the present or disquieted about the future, but be concerned only about the moment you must now live.

Do not let anticipation of tomorrow be a burden on the day that is passing.

What you lack in the evening, the new morning will bring you, if you know how to hope in God.

 ~John Baptist de La Salle
