Quote for the 40 Days



"I will attempt, day by day, to break my will into pieces.
 
I want to do God's Holy Will, not my own!"

– St. Gabriel Possenti

I wished I'd read this at the beginning of this day not now as I go to bed. Oh well, hope springs eternal and there's always tomorrow to work on conforming one's will to God!

Karen,

That is a very nice quote. Here is one I keep on the mirror.

"Perfection is not acquired by keeping one's arms folded, but by assiduously striving to overcome oneself."

- St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Faith, there's day after day after day. :)

Thank you, Father -- the St. Francis Cabrini quote is wonderful.
