"There is a general rule concerning all special graces granted to any human being. Whenever the divine favor chooses someone to receive a special grace, or to accept a lofty vocation, God adorns the person chosen with all the gifts of the Spirit needed to fulfill the task at hand. " (Saint Bernardine of Siena) We should recall this whenever we feel God is calling us to do something out of our comfort zone. With the call and opportunity to serve him comes the grace and strength to accomplish the task, no matter how humanly impossible it seems or how humanly unworthy we feel.  For, it is God doing the work through us and not we ourselves. How often the words of St. Paul speak to these moments. God chooses the weak to confound the strong and the foolish to confound the wise. Our boast  is in the power and presence of God and not in ourselves.
