St. Raphael Kalinowski (1835-1907)
Raphael was a lieutenant in the Russian Military Engineering Corps in 1857, but later he peacefully helped lead a resistance movement against the Russian occupiers of Poland. He was arrested and served ten years in the Siberian salt mines. When he was freed, he joined a Carmelite community in Austria and became a priest. He spent many hours hearing confessions daily, and was known for talent as a spiritual director.

Reflections from the Saints

Our Redeemer, ever present in the most Blessed Sacrament, extends His hand to everyone. He opens His heart and says, "Come to Me, all of You."
