"Do not lose heart, even if you should discover that you lack qualities necessary for the work to which you are called. He who called you will not desert you, but the moment you are in need he will stretch out his saving hand." (St. Angela Merici)  How often we must remind ourselves that the work we are doing, our vocation, our ministry are not ours but the Lord's. And further, how often we have to accept what St. Paul came to acknowledge: "When I am weak than I am strong in Christ." Likewise, he reminds us that God chooses the weak to confound the strong; the foolish to confound the wise, so that our boast is in Christ and not in ourselves. God's promise to be with us always includes the times when our strength alone is not sufficient for the task we face. But with him we can do all things. There is nothing impossible to God, so let us turn to him in all things.
