Thought of the Day July 18, 2017

“Think well. Speak well. Do well. These three things, through the mercy of God, will make a man go to Heaven.” (St. Camillus de Lellis) These three things reflect the basic Gospel message. We either sin in thought, word or deed or we grow in holiness in thought, word or deed. If we guard our thoughts, speak only what builds others up, and do all in love, the grace of God will draw us into the fuller life of
God. But if we allow our thinking, our words and actions to be governed by the world, the flesh and the devil, then we block the mercy of God from making a difference in our life. We need to follow then the admonition of St. Paul to the Colossians: “Let everything whatsoever that you do, whether in (thought), word or in deed, be done all in the name
of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God the Father through him.(Col 3:17)
