On the Way

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

St. Barnabas Day

I was looking at an online liturgy site and realized that today is the day the Church commemorates St. Barnabas.  I thought of my dear friend, who is a Barnabas to me.
So, I sent him an email with this collect in memory of the saint:

Grant, O God, that we may follow the example of your faithful servant Barnabas, who, seeking not his own renown but the well­being of your Church, gave generously of his life and substance for the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
