The great thing about saints is that they will not lose their faith because of bad liturgical music. They can suffer bad preaching, small budgets, poor management, and every single one of the many fools we have in this hospital for sinners. They’ll still be in the pews on Sunday, quietly winning the world for Christ, slowly transforming the Church, recruiting more saints and often fixing other problems in the process. – Matthew Warner, Messy & Foolish
“I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
“I praise, adore, bless and thank you to the best of my ability for your wise mercy and your merciful wisdom! For you, my Creator and my Redeemer, have sought to curb my stiff-necked obstinacy under your sweet yoke with the remedy best suited to my infirmity.” (St. Gertrude the Great, Virgin, A.D. 1256-1301; The Herald of Divine Love: p. 95-96).
Can Jesus trust us?
To be good stewards of what he’s given
What have you done with the gifts he has given you? not just material things – spiritual things too
Through others, we become ourselves. -Lev Vygotsky
