St. Jean-Baptiste de La Salle (April 30, 1651 to April 7, 1719)

"Nothing can be more dangerous than keeping wicked companions. They communicate the infection of their vices to all who associate with them."
(St. Jean-Baptiste de LaSalle)

Turn the other cheek can only go so far. There are some people that you just have to disassociate with. I've experienced it in previous jobs and in my personal life. They are emotional vampires who try to suck positive energy and joy out of your life.
Today's entry is short and sweet.
St. Jean-Baptiste de LaSalle recognized this. He was born on April 30, 1651 in Reims, France and was the founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. He died on April 7, 1719 in Rouen, France.
St. Jean-Baptiste de LaSalle was canonized in 1900 and his feast day is April 7.
