Relying on the Lord

Venerable Matt Talbot’s life illustrates that the Lord can break all involuntary chains, even the chains in our own minds which hold us back from true peace.*

Venerable Matt Talbot, pray for us that we may grow in the serenity, courage and wisdom which comes from God alone.

*Note:  The chains that Matt was wearing at the time of his death were symbolic of his great devotion to Mary and Jesus. Without those chains, which were inspired by St. Louis de Monfort, we would not know of Matt Talbot today.
