Bl. Solanus Casey

Solanus was a Capuchin friar in the United States who spent most of his life as a porter (or doorkeeper) at the midwestern friaries in which he lived. Although many people considered him unintelligent, he never allowed this to make him angry. Instead he was always grateful to God for His many blessings. Fr. Solanus frequently said, “Thank God ahead of time,” because he knew that God would always do good to those who love Him.
