Thought of the Day November 18, 2015

“We cultivate a very small field for Christ, but we love it, knowing that God does not require great achievements but a heart that holds back nothing for self…. The truest crosses are those we do not choose ourselves…. He who has Jesus has everything.” (St. Rose Philippine Duchesne) If we choose our crosses, then we would be motivated by self not by God's will. But if we learn how to embrace the cross of the moment, trusting that God is allowing this and is giving us the grace to carry it, then we will be more like Christ, the obedient servant.
