Summer Inspiration

"Today might be tough for you. You might not want the next moment to show itself, to reveal the twists and turns of life's mystery. But at least you have it. You still have life. A choice as to how you will live this precious day.

Don't wish it away. Don't waste it. For the love of all that's holy, redeem one hour. Hold it close. Cherish it. Above all, be grateful for it. Let your thanksgiving rise above the din of disappointment -- opportunities lost, mistakes made, the clamor of all that has not yet come."

~A Daybook of Comfort and Joy, Breathnach~

Saint Josemaria Escriva, Memorial

The feast day of this great saint has already passed, in fact, it was on my birthday last Friday the 26th. I have been so busy I let it slip by, still, I wanted to post this.

"With supernatural intuition, Blessed Josemaria untiringly preached the universal call to holiness and apostolate. Christ calls everyone to become holy in the realities of everyday life. Hence work too is a means of personal holiness and apostolate, when it is done in union with Jesus Christ."

-Pope John Paul II in his homily at the beatification of Saint Josemaria
