Saint for the Day - September 27 - Sts. Cosmas &
St. Cosmas and St.
Damian were brothers, and born in Arabia, but
studied the sciences in Syria, and became eminent
for their skill in physic. Being Catholics, and
full of that holy temper of charity in which the
spirit of our divine religion consists, they
practised their profession with great application
and wonderful success, but never took any fee. They
were loved and respected by the people on account of
the good offices received from their charity, and
for their zeal for the Catholic faith, which they
took every opportunity to propagate. When the
persecution of Diocletian began to rage, it was
impossible for persons of so distinguished a
character to lie concealed. They were therefore
apprehended by the order of Lysias, Governor of
Cilicia, and after various torments were bound hand
and foot and thrown into the sea.

We may sanctify our labor or
industry, if actuated by the
motive of charity toward others,
even whilst we fulfil the
obligation we owe to ourselves
and our families of procuring an
honest and necessary
subsistence, which of itself is
no less noble a virtue, if
founded in motives equally pure
