Gaudete Sunday

Never neglect any occasion God sends you of doing the good you can. Great charity, like every other great virtue, does not consist in doing extraordinary things, or waiting for extraordinary circumstances; it depends on doing with all our heart the good we have the chance of doing at every moment within our own homes and outside of them.
--Reverend Bernard O'Reilly in The Mirror of True Womanhood

  1. This is very like St. Therese of Lisieux's spiritual approach - the "Little Way". We can't hear it often enough.

  2. Thank you, dear Ellengable, Ann, and Barb, for your beautiful words. I am so happy that you took the time to write, and I am very grateful to have you here. Barb, I thought as you did that this was very much like Saint Therese. May Almighty God bless you all.
