Thy Kingdom Come!
Dear Friends in Christ,
“I always want to see you behaving like a brave soldier who does not complain about his own suffering but takes his comrades’ wounds seriously and treats his own as nothing but scratches.”
–Saint Therese of Lisieux, to her novices
How often are we asked, “How do you feel? How are you doing?” We all have aches, pains and real difficulties, but in general, most people do not want to be burdened by them. I am always impressed by people who put their best face forward, don’t complain, and focus on serving the needs of others. The more you take your own temperature, the higher it rises!
Fr. Michael Sliney, LC
