The Record

In one of this week’s articles: ‘Pope Francis clears way to sainthood for three, advances causes of others’, there is a lovely snapshot of the life of Blessed Charles de Foucauld. De Foucauld, also known as Brother Charles of Jesus, was a soldier, explorer, Catholic revert, priest, hermit, and religious brother, who served among the Tuareg people in the Sahara desert in Algeria. He was assassinated by a band of men at his hermitage in the Sahara on 1 December 1916. Please go to our website for the link to the Record and see if your heart does a little stutter at the following paragraph: ‘The priest said he wanted to “shout the Gospel with his life” and to conduct his life so that people would ask, “if such is the servant, what must the Master be like?”’ ...... It really does make you think doesn’t it?
