St. Charles Borromeo, born in 1538, was a great figure of the Counter-Reformation. As Bishop of Milan, he wrote a catechism and trained teachers in its use. Out of this plan came the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, which many of us know better as CCD.
While working on the Council of Trent, word reached Cardinal Borromeo that his brother was dying. His brother’s death made St. Charles see the vanity of everything in this life if every moment of it is not spent for God. Reading this story about St. Charles can help us see that we are called to be holy and to spend every moment we can for God!
