Lesson from Saint Mother Theodore Guerin

"We are certainly more agreeable to the Divine Majesty when, in obedience, we are forming and teaching those poor little orphans than if, of our own will, we are praying all the day long on our knees."
~~Saint Mother Theodore Guerin~~

And so we have been called to continue to care for the poor and the orphans even as our Holy Father teaches us the way.  

Thanks be to God!

A Birthday Celebration

". . . but the protecting hand of the Lord,
which guarded us on the deep,
preserved us from accident and harm on the land."
(Written while crossing the Alleghenies on the way to  Indiana.)
~~Saint Mother Theodore Guerin~~

Today we celebrate Labor Day and my son, Wes', birthday.  I try not to take anything for granted, though I know at times I do.  I have 5 wonderful children and each one is special in his or her own way, thanks be to God! 

And so today I celebrate the life God gave Wes and his wife and two beautiful daughters.  I can never be grateful to God enough for them.

Thanks be to God!!
