Voice of Wisdom

I will remember how St. Peter, at a blast of wind, began to sink because of his lack of faith, and I will do as he did:  Call upon Christ and pray to him for help.  And then I trust he will place his holy hand on me and in the stormy seas hold me up from drowning.
~Saint Thomas More~


If it is true for Saint Peter and St. Thomas More, it will be no different for me.  I too will be lifted up and emboldened.  I will see that all things are possible for those who believe and I will believe.  I will hope!!!

Thanks be to God!

Thought For the Day

In our daily work, let us practice charity, affection, and humility through the accomplishment of our normal duties, and then let us come to the feet of Jesus with all that.  He will know how to see all, to accept all, and will transform what needs to be improved in us.  

~~Servant of God Elisabeth Leseur~~

So today, I will try to make myself more aware of those around me.  When it is easy to be uncharitable towards another let me respond with kindness and generosity.   And in so doing I will be open to the changes required in me! 

Thanks be to God!
