Born in 1521, Peter Canisius was a great figure of the Catholic Counter-Reformation. As a youth, Peter was stubborn and mischievous, but after making a spiritual retreat as a young man, he was filled with grace and had a strong desire to do something for God. He discerned that God was calling him to become a Jesuit priest. As a Jesuit priest, Peter courageously preached against heresies, authored many fine books, and founded great institutions of learning. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Saint Peter Canisius, who gave up his selfishness, followed Godís calling, and willingly accepted the burdens and crosses of daily life.
